The smartDONGLE is obsolete and has been replaced by the smartLINK™

The SLS smartDONGLE Audio Port UHF RFID Reader is designed to read and write to C1G2 UHF transponders and communicate with a variety of host devices via the 3.5mm audio port. The RFID reader chipset is optimized for low power consumption while still providing excellent short-range performance in a small and convenient form factor.

The smartDONGLE is a perfect, low-cost way to RFID-enable your iOS devices to allow for short-range reading and encoding of RAIN RFID tags. Use in conjunction with the SLS smartEIT and smartREADER apps to allow for:

  • Validating RAIN RFID tag encoded data (including SGTIN format)
  • Associating tag Electronic Product Code (EPC) to an item stock number
  • Encode (write) data to tag EPC memory bank
  • Identify a specific EPC-encoded tag using ‘Tag Locate” feature

For use with iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, we recommend use of the Fuze case which restores the 3.5mm audio jack for iPhone 7 and 7 Plus and has a built-in battery.
