Arduino Ethernet and concurrent use of SPI devices

Hi guys, I was wondering if I could please get some help in regards to using the Arduino EtherTten and its Ethernet and SPI simultaneously, or if there is an equivalent alternative. I am trying to create an Ethernet-controlled circuit which (among other things) can control a digital pot (AD5262) for...

Re: Freetronics RFID Door Lock Shield and Priority 1 RFIDREAD-mRW-125

Hi guys, Just wanted to let you guys know that I've decided to go ahead and manufacture the board despite the fact that softwareserial didn't work for whatever reason and was going to just use the hardware serial pins. After assembling the board and doing an initial test, the results were more than ...

Re: Freetronics RFID Door Lock Shield and Priority 1 RFIDREAD-mRW-125

Hi Angus, Thank you for getting back to me. I've used the existing code and replaced the loop with the one you provided to look like this: #include <SoftwareSerial.h> #define rxPin 10 #define txPin 11 // set up a new serial port SoftwareSerial mySerial = SoftwareSerial(rxPin, txPin); void setup() { ...

Re: Freetronics RFID Door Lock Shield and Priority 1 RFIDREAD-mRW-125

Hi guys, The P1D has been confirmed to be the cause of the problems. I've received the replacement reader and have connected and tested the reader as per Angus' and Jon's instructions, and have successfully communicated with the reader using hardware serial pins D0 and D1, and have gotten a read off...

Re: Freetronics RFID Door Lock Shield and Priority 1 RFIDREAD-mRW-125

Hi Jon, I really appreciate all your help. I'll send the reader back today and wait to see what they say about it. I thought the same with case sensitivity and line termination, but while I was attempting those steps, I thought I might as well broaden the testing just in case. Will let you know when...

Re: Freetronics RFID Door Lock Shield and Priority 1 RFIDREAD-mRW-125

Hi Jon, I've tried going through all the baud rates available in the console and with each rate I've tried putting in the SD0 command in both lower case and all in caps for each of the line terminations. I've then put the full command SD0$0D which according to the datasheet is the ASCII carriage ret...

Re: Freetronics RFID Door Lock Shield and Priority 1 RFIDREAD-mRW-125

Hi Jon and Angus, Wow, it doesn't get any clearer than that! I want to thank you both for your patience and tireless efforts! What I didn't realise before was that you could actually use the console to type commands into. I was actually writing the commands into the code and expecting it to execute ...

Re: Freetronics RFID Door Lock Shield and Priority 1 RFIDREAD-mRW-125

Hi Angus, Thanks for getting back to me. I've flashed the Etherten with the "Blink" example sketch and connected pin 0 to the Rx pin of the reader and pin 1 to the Tx pin of the reader, as instructed. Doing this didn't allow the unit to talk to Priority 1's RFID READER WRITER APPLICATION, which I've...

Re: Freetronics RFID Door Lock Shield and Priority 1 RFIDREAD-mRW-125

Hi Jon, Thank you very much for the comprehensive advice! Unfortunately, I don't have a USB-serial converter, so I've adopted the Arduino connection method. I've used the SoftwareSerialExample sketch, using pins 10 and 11 as Rx and Tx respectively and connected them to the mrw-125's Tx and Rx pins (...
