125 khz RFID Reader sample (Python or NodeJS)

Hi all,

I recently purchased a new set of sensors, including the 125Khz RFID reader with some tags. I thought there would be some samples for this, but couldn’t find any. Besides that, the reader uses Serial port communication and it’s not that straightforward to use…

I’m using my GrovePi+ with a Raspberry Pi 3.

Does anyone have a running sample for this for Python or, even better, NodeJS?


I don’t have it for sure. I just want to make sure that you’re talking about this one?

As far as I know, there’s no demo on the Dexter website - yet.

Actually is this one. I’m not sure if it’s 100% similar to those models you mention in your response…

It looks like the RFID reader is a serial sensor so you should be able to connect it to the RPISER port on the Pi. After that you can use a program like this: https://github.com/DexterInd/ArduBerry/blob/master/Software/Python/pySer.py (Comment line 24), and the RFID reader should return values back whenever you bring a Card close to the Reader.
