BlueBerry iS HF is a mobile mini RFID reader, keychain shape, able to read HF tags and transmit the acquired data to any device equipped with Bluetooth® radio interface.

The maximum reading distance is 6 cm.

The use of the RFID reader is easy and intuitive thanks to the presence of a single button, to activate the reading of the HF tags (1), and an LED and a multi-tone beeper, to alert the operator of the reading.

BlueBerry iS HF integrates Bluetooth® radio technology, in particular it uses the iAP and SPP profiles. With the SPP profile, data transmission takes place in virtual serial mode, a two-way channel. A simple serial communication protocol, present on all TERTIUM Technology products, allows to manage all the RFID reader functions, in particular the ID scan and the reading / writing of the HF tag memory (2). With this profile it is possible, in the development phase, to integrate RFID technology in any application or program for mobile devices or desktops or laptops.

The iAP profile is essentially the same as the SPP profile, with full compatibility with iPhone® and iPad® devices.

BlueBerry iS HF is battery powered. Charging carries out via a micro USB connector.

Through the USB port it is possible to connect the BlueBerry iS HF to a PC, so that it can also be used as a normal RFID desktop reader. Data transmission on the USB interface takes place in virtual serial mode, a bidirectional channel (managed through the same serial communication protocol as the Bluetooth® SPP interface).


BlueBerry iS HF RFID readers can be customized by changing their characteristics, such as: case/ring color combinations, shape of ring, keyboard graphics, design of the antenna and vibration option instead of beep option.
