The OEM MICODE TURBO reader is a new generation OEM MICODE product. Most of the features of the old OEM MICODE products are supported, but also included are most of the RFID features of the Pepper C1 range, which gives much better RFID performance.
So, this is an ideal design choice for replacing old products, with a migration option to our new Pepper C1 interface. With the C1 binary interface you can read/write most of the tags available on the market not only read their UID like on the old MICODE products.
The new devices support firmware updates, so all new features requested by users or bug fixes can be uploaded to the module later.
By default, the new reader works the same as old OEM MICODE readers, with built in polling mode, UID output over serial connection, programmable “BEEP” output for external control. What is more, new products have the option to change baud rate from 9600 to 115200 in RWD MICODE compatibility mode.
The OEM boards are based on the proven RWD-MICODE (MIFARE®, ICODE®) module design with components laid out inside a PCB track antenna and they function in exactly the same way as the module with an antenna fitted. The design incorporates LEDs for visual indication of card acceptance.
