FMB125 CONNECTION WITH MF7 Promag RFID reader

Hello Community,

I am trying to connect MF7 RFID reader to FMB125 but stuck in the wiring connection bit. Any guidance is appreciated.

Hi @Richy,

I hope you are doing well. RS232 connection of the Device should be connected to the sensor in vice versa. Such as the following connection below.

RS232 TX (FMB125) → RS232 RX (Sensor)
RS232 RX (FMB125) → RS232 TX (Sensor)
Ground (FMB125) → Ground (Sensor)

Meanwhile, on the Configuration tab you need to select the RS232 Tab the RFID MF7. The difference between RFID HID Mode and RFID MF7 Mode is that RFID MF7 Mode FMC125 understands RFID messages that are in hexadecimal text format and RFID HID Mode interprets messages that are in binary format. The type of RFID message sent to FMC125 depends on the RFID reader. For example, the RFID MF7 mode message looks like $aa$02$03$04$17$89$00$01 while the HID mode message is of the following format: 1213141519

I hope this helps.

Kind regards,
