Start Developing for the CS203x
The CS203X can support custom embedded code to run advanced logic right on the reader. You can code your own advanced tag filtering rules or even control external devices. See our example code on GitHub.
The CS203X can also support CSL HTTP/XML protocol with full event engine management, CSL Unified Protocol, LLRP Protocol, and MACH1.

Here are some common questions about the CS203X.
What tag was used to calculate the 22 m read range
The SMARTRAC R6 DogBone RFID paper tag was used during range tests.
I'm a developer, where can I find sample code
We have a number of downloads available to get you stared fast. The 203X can use the same development resources as the CS463.View the CS463 development resources here. You can also view our GitHub Page here.
Can I control external devices over USB
Yes, you can control external USB devices by running custom embedded code on the reader.
