The CS108 UHF RFID Reader is a handheld RFID reader that is designed to be used with UHF (RAIN) RFID tags. This UHF RFID reader has one of the longest read ranges on the market (up to 20 meters) and can work well in demanding, industrial environments. The device is typically connected via Bluetooth to a device running iOS, Android or Windows where the smart device serves as the display for the user and the CSL CS108 assists with collecting RFID tags.
The CS108 UHF RFID Reader is available with or without a 2D barcode imager. If you choose the model with the 2D imager, you will be enabled with both RFID and barcode/QR code reading capabilities.

For charging, the CS108 comes with a USB cable, which is included with your purchase of the RFID reader.
For additional battery life, you may also choose to purchase the CS108B Spare Battery, shown in the example below, which can be swapped out at any point in the use of your CS108 RFID reader to enable you with twice as much battery time.
