This is a great little RFID Reader Module from Innovations, similar to the ID models (the difference being no silicone protection on the back). If you need an inexpensive way to get started with RFID, this is a great little module.
Just power the module, and it will read any RFID card within range. It will output the cards ID in a serial string, which can easily be read by any microcontroller or PC with an RS-232 interface. The spacing on the pins is 2.54 mm, which means the module will directly fit on a breadboard.
The EM-18 RFID Reader module operating at 125kHz is an inexpensive solution for your RFID based application. The Reader module comes with an on-chip antenna and can be powered up with a 5V power supply. Power-up the module and connect the RS-232 transmit pin of the module to receive a pin of your microcontroller using the MAX232 converter. Show your card within the reading distance and the card number is thrown at the output. Optionally the module can be configured for also a Weigand output.
