Description: This RFID Shield made by rhydoLABZ helps you to develop the RFID Based AccesControll systems using Arduinos. The shield include almost everything an acces controll system needs . This shield is not populated with RFID module , it is compatible to ID12,ID20 and similar pin compatible modules. The onboard Relay driving circuitry help you to connect external relays to drive the magnetic lockS, solinoid valve ect.The Built in 5v buzzer can be used for indicating the RFID card accepatance, like single beep for card acceptance and double beep for rejection or vice versa.All other RFID module pins are brought out at 4 pin RMC connector.
The Relay control pins are available at another 4 pin RMC connector with separate power for relay.There is an board LED which shows the status of the relay as well as other two leds required for the RFID module. The New Shield is compatible with Arduino Due,which require 3V3 as interfacing voltage as well as all other Arduino boards and its clones. It is based on Arduino R3 layout with additional pins.
The shield is provided with a DPDT sliding switch which helps RFID module connect either to PC via USB or to UART Pins of Arduino microcontroller. This feature helps you to configure or test the RFID module before using it in your project.No need for separate RFID development board.The shield also populated with selectable voltage devider resistor for level shifting (5V to 3V3) on the RXD & TXD pin , to connect the shield with 3v3 compatible boards like Arduino DUE ect..There is another onboard option(Jumper Selectable)is provided which allows you to connect RFID module to either Digital UART or Software UART pins of the Arduino. The shield does come with headers installed, So no Soldering required at all , just plug and play :-)
