IdentiQuik® integration

Step 5: Implement the electromechanical interface

Colder offers two popular interfaces for allowing your system controller to communicate with the IdentiQuik RFID reader and tag. Other interfaces can be provided on a custom basis.

1. USB

The IdentiQuik reader comes with a standard USB-A connector. The 5VDC power feed and communications link are provided entirely through the USB interface.

2. RS-232

The IdentiQuik reader is also available with a cable terminated with a 9-pin female D-sub connector organized as a DCE. Since the system controller typically will not provide sufficient power for the IdentiQuik product via control lines, an alternate power feed is recommended.
