    • RFID tuning for smart devices.
      The SP1 RFID Reader attachments now bring all the advantages of RFID and makes them available for your existing smart devices. With BHT-1800 or Quad Lock rotary attachment for Android™ and iOS devices - SP1 is always ready to connect for an uncomplicated top performance.

      The ergonomically designed grip of the SP1 RFID Reader ensures a comfortable and easy handling.

      Smart connectivity.
      AndroidTM or iOS – the SP1 RFID Reader connects quickly and easily to any smart device.

      Easy Bluetooth pairing.
      Pairing the RFID Reader with a Smart Device (e.g. DENSO’s BHT-1800 or even your smartphone) couldn’t be any easier. Simply scan the QR Code®, which is printed on the SP1, with you Smart Device and both devices establish a pairing automatically thanks to a connection app.  

      Charged with ideas.
      While the SP1 RFID Reader is sitting in its cradle and charging, you can simultaneously recharge another smart device, like for instance DENSO’s BHT-1800 handheld terminal, via the integrated USB port on the cradle.

      Cross-dipole antenna.
      The cross-dipole antenna allows reading RFID tags with any directionality, thanks to its horizontal and vertical switching.  

      13 metres reading distance. *
      DENSO’s SP1 RFID Reader allows high-speed scanning of RFID tags at distances up to 13 metres. Thereby it covers an area of up to 530m2.

      Internal memory.
      Allows the caching of 80,000 RFID tags and 1,000 barcodes to bridge connection interruptions between the host device and the SP1 RFID reader. Data loss and time-consuming repetitions of the scanning process are avoided thereby. The scanning process can be resumed easily right there, where it was interrupted.

      Exhaustively crash-tested.
      Auto-ID Products by DENSO are made of only the best quality materials and tested intensively before they are launched to the market. Because ultimately, we are driven by quality. So, it should be no surprise that the SP1 RFID Reader survives drops from heights up to 1,5 metres with ease.
