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)
Vertical Horizontal


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.

The 12V can be obtained from nodes with these outputs, such as a pneumatic beer valve controller or a post-mix controller.

Settings for the relay:

  • i: Here you can give the time that the relay will be active after the card is inserted. If the relay is still active after removing the card, the relay will get deactivated.

Example: i05: the relay stays 5 seconds after inserting the card active, or until the card gets removed.
