Re: Help, I am so new at this ....

It should be possible to change the pin assignments for either the IRTemp module or your display so that they can work together. I don't know what type of display you have, so let's look at changing the IRTemp pins. If you've installed the IRTemp driver library into the Arduino IDE, you can see an e...

Re: Wireless Ultrasonic Tank Level Meter?

Hi Malster,

I just came across this post and wondered if you managed to get the decoding working. You obviously did a lot of work figuring out the protocol, so did you take it further than that?

I'd love to see an update on this project.

Cheers

Jon

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

Sounds like you've exhausted all the possibilities then. It's still possible there's a problem with your setup and the reader itself is OK, but it's probably about time to send it to P1D and see what they say. If they test it and the reader turns out to be fine then we can figure out what to try fro...

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

Yes, in this case what we're trying to do is eliminate any code issues and get it connected to your computer so you can type commands to the reader manually and see any response that comes back without anything else getting in the way. Before you send the reader back, there are three last-ditch thin...

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

Found a stash of P1D readers in a box :-) I've tested with both a USB-serial converter and also an EtherTen wired up as Angus suggested, and both methods worked. I loaded Blink onto the ET, connected the P1D reader as shown in the photo. 5V and GND directly to the ET, with the reader's RX pin going ...

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

You must be feeling very frustrated right now! I think I have a spare P1D reader here somewhere, so I'm going to set it up now using an EtherTen as a USB-serial converter the way Angus suggested and see if I can communicate with it. There's nothing like having the hardware right in front of you when...

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

Yes, I think you have the same module as me :-) What I'd do in this situation is try to eliminate any possible complications and reduce your setup to the minimum possible parts to get the reader working in the correct mode, then build it back up from there one step at a time. So what I'd do is conne...

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

Could you please clarify what specific reader you're using? The Priority1 Design site shows this one: http://www.priority1design.com.au/rfidread-mrw.pdf According to that spec sheet that particular reader supports EM4100, so perhaps you have a different model. Starting on page 8 of that PDF is a gui...

Re: RST-EN is difficult to reach

Yes, that's right, you could either put pin headers in the holes or solder wires directly in, either top or bottom. This afternoon I modified the EtherMega design to add the extra header holes: Screen Shot 2015-06-03 at 9.27.24 pm.png Next time we do a PCB production run for the EM it'll have this n...

Re: RST-EN is difficult to reach

John and I were chatting about your problem this morning, and I've just been looking at the PCB layout around that area to see if there's anything we could do in a future revision that may help. As John said, putting a pair of pins and a jumper in that location would foul a PoE regulator board fitte...
