Tag Reader

This reader works just like the normal tag reader. There are only 2 differences. First the reader is supplied with a graphical display with animation. This gives us the opportunity to rotate the text on the LCD. The reader is also supplied with a relay. (More later)

Switches & ledís :

From left to right, seen from the back of the reader, youíll find :

  • A push-button switch : SERVICE-switch. This transmits the ID-number of the node.
  • A yellow led : SERVICE-led. Lights up when you push the service-switch. When this led flashes or is lit continuously, a severe software problem occurred in the node. ( call us )
  • A red led : TRANSMIT-led
  • A second red led : RECEIVE-led

There are two identical 6-way connectors at the back of the reader. One for horizontal-mounting, the other for vertical-mounting.
