Start Developing for the CS463
The CS463 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 CS463 can now be controlled over Bluetooth and it supports the same API as the CS108 Sled Handheld Reader. We have an SDK and code examples for your OS of choice including iOS, Android, Linux and Windows. All the CS108 communicates over Bluetooth or Bluetooth LE to the device of choice. See our example code on GitHub.

Here are some common questions about the CS463.
What tag was used to calculate the 22 m read range
The SMARTRAC R6 DogBone RFID paper tag was used during range tests.
Can I control external devices over USB
Yes, you can control external USB devices by running custom embedded code on the reader.
