The CSL CS203X is the next generation of ruggedized IP68 intelligent integrated readers from CSL. Offering an event engine with multiple layer nested logic for full embedded business automation. Many applications only require one antenna to effectively read RFID tags. The CS203X includes an integrated circular polarized antenna with a read range up to 22 meters (tag and environment dependent). The CS203X allows you to start reading RFID tags without running long coax cables to costly external antennas. This read range enables fast inventory of items on pallets, warehouse shelves, moving vehicles, and other tagged items in business processes where fixed reader class performance is required. The CS203X is designed for indoor and outdoor use, for more rugged conditions considered waterproof connectors. An external antenna can also be connected to the reader to expand the RFID tag reading area, we recommend the CS776 antenna. 


Features and Benefits:

  • Integrated Antenna - The CS203x includes a built in circular polarized antenna. so, the setup is quick and easy.
  • Weatherproof - The CS203x is rugged and ready for outdoor use with an IP68 rating and waterproof antenna, power, Ethernet and serial connections. 
  • Event Engine - The CS203x has a power event engine that enables advanced automation, and no coding is required.  
  • Flexible Coding Option - The CS203x supports the same API's as previous CSL readers and can run custom embedded code on a Linux platform.
