TappyBLE plug-in UID only reader

TappyBLE plug-in UID only reader


This version of our TappyBLE was specifically designed for the sole purpose of reading the UID* of  each tag. Its wired AC adaptor also eliminates the need for a Li-Ion battery; making the price point of this reader extremely attractive. 

(*UID stands for "unique ID" which is a number embedded natively into every NFC chip during manufacturing. This number cannot be edit or changed, which makes it useful for distinguishing the tag that the chip goes into, from another tag.) 

What you get with the TappyBLE UID-reader, with wire:

  • Read the most popular NFC chips (ISO 14443 A/B, Tag Types 1,2,3, and 4.)
  • Total technical support from TapTrack, the engineers who created Tappy.
  • Consistent power supply: Use the AC adapter plug for reliably wired output.
