Phidgets RFID reader

Postby n.weber » Thu May 22, 2014 1:12 pm

Hello,

i read that i could connect to the Phidgets RFID Reader in Widget Designer (Pro). However I cannot find the respective node, only Interface Kit nodes. Node search only turned up an RFID script node but i think that's not what i'm looking for.
Any hints?

Kind Regards
Nadja

Hi,

there is no node for the RFID, just the script. So you connect the RFID you read from the tag to any script you like.

best regards

Patrick

Hi,

you can find it in the "Tool" menu in the Phidgets section. Basically you can enter the IDs just like in the macro editor window with a script.

The second thing that can be used is a variable that will automatically contain the RFID-ID. Have a look at the variables window.

Best regards

Hey,

thanks, I got it to work with a fixed it. How do I use the variable? I put PhidgetRFID-Tag into the Input field but it didn't seem to work. Also, I would like to get the event, when the tag is removed from the reader. How would i do that?

Kind Regards

Hi Nadja,

once you connected the RFID reader to the widget you should be able to read out the codes with the RFID script node. The helpfile gives you a pretty good overview on it:

http://www.coolux.de/root/downloads/sup ... cripts.htm

If you use the ID to trigger something you do not necessarily need variables. You could change a set variable using a script. There are several scripts dealing with variables, the all start with a V. So if you type v in the script node it will offer you those.

Some general information about variables can be found here:

http://www.coolux.de/root/downloads/sup ... iables.htm

To trigger something on release is not possible in my understanding. The reader does not make a difference in getting or loosing an ID. So it will only display the ID os long as it can see the ID.

best regards

Patrick

Hi,

Create a "Action" Node and look for the RFID tag. There you can enter a script that should fire whenever the tag is changed.

Best regards
