Low Cost RFID Reader Writer module.

This low cost RFID reader writer module is an upgrade of our RFIDREAD-4100
RFID reader. Optimized for 125Khz transponders this unit is able to read EM4100,
FDXB  animal tags, and read and write, T55xx series and EM4205 Tags
Its features are: 
  • Reads EM4100 compatible transponders. (64bit Manchester Encoding).
    Reads and Writes T5557 transponders (32cyc/bit  Manchester Encoding).
    Read and Write FDX-B animal identification protocol as described in
    ISO11784/11785 
    Reads and Writes EM4205 / EM4305 transponders (32cyc/bit Biphase Encoding).
  • Read Distance: 6cm for cards, and 4cm for keytags. (*1)
  • Small Unit size:  66mm x 34mm.
  • On board duel color LED (Red/Green).
  • On board buzzer.
  • Integrated RFID coil antenna.
  • TTL Uart Output.
(*1) Reading distance may increase or decrease depending on transponder variations, and power supply condition.

The command set for this RFID Reader Writer module include the following:
  • Set LED color and function.
  • Set Buzzer Function.
  • Read Block.
  • Read Password Protected Block.
  • Write Block.
  • Write Password Protected Block.
  • Enable/Disable password Protection.
  • Emulate EM4100 tag with T5557 tag.
  • Read  FDX-B animal identification transponders.
  • Write FDX-B animal identification tags using T5557, EM4205.
The ability of the T5557and EM4205 transponders to write data allows for greater
flexibility in RFID applications. The ability to create your own ID codes, store data, and
duplicate RFID tags is an essential feature in many systems as used in
Access
Control, Inventory Tracking, and other numerous applications where non contact
identification of items is required.
The Emulate EM4100 tag function of the RFIDREAD-RW solves the problem of
not being able to duplicate EM4100 tags or write EM4100 RFID tags with user
defined data.
Animal identification is a growing industry and our FDX-B read and write
capabilities allow users to identify and create animal tags for their applications.

We carry a stock of T5557 RFID transponders suitable for this unit. You can buy
T55xx transponders direct from
our on line shopfront.

Our Free RFID reader application programs are available for download and allow
users to quickly read and write RFID transponders, as well as transfer scanned
tag codes to other user applications such as EXCEL, Notepad, or any other
application running on a PC that allows keyboard entries to be made.

Low cost Animal tag and RFID Reader Writer module
with External Antenna.

The RFIDRW-E is a RFID reader writer module with an externally connected
antenna coil for allowing greater application flexibility. As well as the popular
EM4100, T5557/67, EM4205 / EM4305 and TIRIS transponders this unit can also read animal identification tags using the FDX-B and HDX protocols as described by ISO11784/11785.

This unit comes supplied with our standard rfidcoil-49a antenna coil which
needs to be connected for the unit to operate. Alternatively users can attach
their own antenna and tune the unit by means of attaching a suitable tuning
capacitor as described in the data sheet.
For antenna connection examples see animal tag and rfid reader/writer.
These units are available with either RS232 or USB interface.

Its features are: 
  • Read/Write FDX-B, and HDX animal identification protocol as described in ISO11784/11785, such as the Texas Instruments RI-TRP-RE2B,
    TROVAN ID162 FDX-B,  and similar transponders.

RFIDRW-E-232E  (Enhanced)

Due to users request for increased read range we enhanced the circuit of our standard RFIDRW-E-232 unit.  The RFIDRW-E-232E uses a high Q circuit for driving a higher voltage into the antenna. Read range for EM4100, T55xx series, TIRIS and FDXB/HDX animal tags are improved by a factor of 2.  However this reader is not suitable for reading EM4205 as read range and performance is reduced for this tag.


(*2) Reading range indicated is based on connection of our RFIDCOIL-49A antenna. Reading range may increase or decrease depending on the specifications of the antenna attached, transponder type, and power supply conditions.




RFIDRW-E-TTL

Based on our RFIDRW-E-232E shown above this version features a TTL uart interface.
The serial outputs are available both in TTL (0-5V) levels and 3.3V levels. In addition it features a regulated 3.3V output for powering externally connected bluetooth modules or other peripheral devices.
This version was created as a response to clients needing to connect our readers to the popular arduino boards, or the HC-05 bluetooth to serial port modules available in the general market.
