Phidget RFID reader.
The phidgetRFID driver communicates with the PhidgetRFID (Part# 1023) reader. (125 kHz Read-only). It does not support anti-collision, but it is inexpensive, small and USB Powered.
- Compile-time dependencies
- libphidget from www.phidgets.com should be installed.
- Configuration requests
- Configuration file options
- serial (integer)
- Default: -1
- This defines which phidget will be controlled if there is more than one connected to the USB bus. You can obtain the number with lsusb, like this: "lsusb -v |grep iSerial". The default is -1 , and it will connect to the first phidget available.
- sampling_rate (integer)
- Default: 40
- How often (in mS) should the phidget produce data. 40mS produces RFID data at a rate of 25Hz.
- alarmtime (integer)
- Default: 45
- If the data acquisition cycle takes longer than this time (in mS), a warning will be printed.
- The driver supports the "speech" interface for printing data to the LCD of the Interface kits that have it.
- An "aio" interface gives information about the analog sensors connected to the Interface Kit.
- The "dio" interface controls the digital inputs and outputs present.
