CS710S - Bluetooth UHF RFID Sled Reader

CS710S is CSL's newest Long Range UHF RAIN RFID handheld sled reader. Re-engineered to use the new Impinj reader chip, the E710, this Bluetooth (BLE) connected reader has an even better read range and faster tag data streaming than our popular CS108 reader.  

About the CS710S

Long Read Range, Rugged Design, Use Any Device or OS

The CS710S takes the physical design of the popular CS108 sled reader and dramatically increases the RFID performance. It has been re-engineered from the ground up to support the new Impinj E710 reader chip. The combination of the following features makes the CS710S the highest performing handheld sled reader on the market. 

  • Powered by Impinj E710 Reader Chip
  • Read Rate > 1,300 tags per second
  • Read Range > 20 meters 
  • Bluetooth 5.0 for faster data connect to devices
  • Advanced on-device tag filtering
  • The CS710S works with existing CS108 software and accessories


Advanced On-Device Tag Filtering

The CS710S can be programmed with specific tag filters to run on the device. This enables much faster read rates in tag dense environments.  It also streamlines the Bluetooth data connection and reduces the need for tag filtering in your application.
