    The schematic is correct. Could be an issue in the actual wiring. We do actually carry a USB version of the RFID Reader designed for PC use.

  • Thanks chris
    Is the tag is compatible for this model, is there any other option to check the functionality of reader. Otherwise is there any option to connect to PLC.
    Request your feedback
    Regards

    Well that's an interesting question. I don't know anything about the tags you got. Perhaps you should purchase a single tag from us (or a distributor) to confirm operation if you're using unknown tags. That would at least narrow it down to the tags or the reader.

  • Looks like the tag is in fact a Parallax tag.

    It is a 125 khz tag that should be compatible with the reader in question.

    The reader interface needs to be 2400 baud.

    Are you using the correct Com Port in Hyperterminal?

    Which version of windows are you running?

    The LED should only be red when the DTR line is enabled, which isn't by default when using the Parallax Serial Terminal.
