SP1 RFID Scanner

SP1 Bluetooth Option Available

This high-power, RFID scanner brings ease of use with blazing speed. Ideal for inventory-taking in retail and healthcare settings, as well as in applications for transportation, warehousing and logistics.

Superior Features

Foolproof and Fast

Performs 700 scans per second at distances up to 8 meters, even when tags are facing different directions.

Simple Setup

Setup the device by simply scanning a QR Code. Pair via Bluetooth to any smart device (phone or tablet, iOS, and Android) for quick and easy transitions between tasks.

Automatic Polarization

Proprietary antenna design switches automatically between horizontal and vertical polarization for uninterrupted scanning in any position.

No Data Loss

If pairing disconnects during work, scanned data is temporarily saved and then transmitted when the scanner is reconnected.
