This RFID Receiver for Particle Electron or Photon makes it easy to interface RFID cards, fobs, tags, and stickers into your next IoT cloud automation application.
Simply swipe a RFID device across the sensor and read the code into the Particle Electron or Photon at 9600 baud. The PEI2CU includes an integrated I2C port for easy expansion to the entire ControlEverything.com I2C Product Line.
This design includes the popular EM18 RFID receiver, greatly simplifying software development.
This product includes a 1 ft cable for remote mounting of the RFID reader.
Based on availability, we will also include a RFID device for testing (a RFID Card, FOB, Tag, or Sticker).
This device makes use of the UART receive line, and should not be used with overlay shields.
IoT Motherboard Compatibility
This is an I²C Master Device, capable of directly connecting to any of our Cross-Platform I²C Slave Devices using the I²C Output. It is directly compatible with:
