This high and low frequency RFID reader applies dual read technology allowing it to read a wide variety of RFID tags. It reads the unique serial number which can have prefix or suffix. This reader is used for many applications including for access control by scanning a user’s RFID enabled card for system authorization.

This dual frequency RFID reader supports multi-detection and offers a high baud rate from 2400 bps to 19200 bps. It reads a variety of RFID cards compliant with ISO 14443A Mifare MF, Ultralite, DESfire. The compact LF or HF RFID reader communicates with a PC via RS232 interface and is powered by 5 V DC 150 mA adaptor for continuous operation.

How to Use

  • Connect PCR340 with PC through RS-232 port, and then run demo software on the disk.
  • It displays a main page with product information on the top of the page and function keys like “Auto Scan”, “Save”, “Open” on the right side of the page.
  • Click “AUTO SCAN” to communicate with PC. The software will detect PCR340 and related setting.
  • If the communication is successful, it will show “Found PCR-340” and product information at the bottom of page.
  • Click “MISC” tab to set “Baudrate”, “Language (Keyboard type)” & “Using code matching to right numeral part of keyboard” if necessary and click “Write” to save the new settings to PCR340. If baudrate is changed, please turn off PCR340 and then you will get new baudrate after turning on PCR340.
  • Click “ID Filter” to set different card formats for data output after reading. Choose the card type and set the range/length of data information. Then, click “Write” to save the new setting to PCR340.
  • Click “Format” to set Prefix code, Postfix code and On Remove message and Delimiter if necessary. If you want to show the card type when you read a card, click to enable “Display Card Type”. Then click “Write” to finish the setting and save it to PCR340.
  • If you want to show alphabetical string instead of showing card number, click “Convert Table” to edit the message.
  • Click “Format” and enable [Output by string table]
  • Then click “Convert Table” and add a card to table Click the “Card ID” to enable/disable the ID & click the “Read” to get the card ID (After enable “Auto Read”, you’ll get the card number automatically when you read a card)
  • After write and Put the card on reader
  • Select the type and Click on Modify tab of “Convert Table”
  • Now Select the second type of Card ID and now click on the “ Remove “
  • Click “Save” to save all settings as .txt file.
  • If you want to download the settings form the file, click “Open” to open the file and click “Write” to download the settings.
  • If you want to know the default setting of PCR340, click ”Read” and download the file to show it on display area.
  • Click “Default” to reset PCR340 and get default setting if necessary. Default values like baud rate, language, prefix, postfix, delimiter, on remove, Display card type, Card ID filter will be shown in red-lined area.
  • To reach the ideal performance, please keep away from the other RFID readers at about 50 cm distance while the PCR340 is in operation to avoid the interference
  • Once continuous card reading is completed, hold for a while for Green LED goes off to access the next card reading.
  • When the PC is powered on, do not put the RFID card on the reaction panel to avoid an error message occurs.
