Quick Overview

Scanfob® Ultra-BB2 is an Ultra-High Frequency (UHF) reader/writer that transmits RFID card and tag data over Bluetooth. It is capable of reading EPC, TID, and user memory. The simple design and one push button make this reader/writer ideal for any use case.  Users will also have the ability to write their software interface, giving them flexibility for their RFID needs.

The Scanfob® Ultra-BB2 is available in three models: the classic model which supports SPP and HID Bluetooth profiles, the MFi (Made for iOS) model which supports MFi and SPP profiles, and the BLE model which supports Bluetooth Low Energy applications. In 2015, SerialIO released the BLE variant which features an upgrade that leverages Bluetooth Low Energy, or Bluetooth 4.0, which improves how this RFID reader pairs with your iOS or Android device by increasing connection speed and reliability.

Scanfob® Ultra-BB2 provides an easy way to use RFID on Android, iOS, Windows, Linux, or Mac operating systems. The BB2's small size and powerful antenna provide for greater ease of use and faster reading.

Want to use RFID with your iPhone or iPad? The Scanfob® Ultra-BB2 works flawlessly on nearly every iOS device.

Developing Your Application?

The Scanfob® Ultra-BB2 is a great solution to bring RFID functionality to your application.

Due to restrictions in Apple's SDK, iOS developers and engineers looking to create RFID solutions for devices such as the iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch will require an external RFID reader to bring data directly into their application.
