      RFID Interface

      Post

      I'm looking at using Filemaker Pro to capture data using Alien RFID Low UHF Freq device. Is anyone doing anything with RFID or familiar with the process in regards to integrating with Filemaker?  Thanks

          I have done some RFID work in MSAccess using VB6. The tags I used were passive and simply read back a unique ID, which fitted nicely into a 'long' data type field in the 'Parts' table in my database.

           

          The tag reader was a simple USB pen reader, which basically filled the copy buffer with the tag number. Simple but it worked.

            I did this about 5 /6 years ago in FM5, I was using an RFID scanner that reads the ID chips in Animals.

            Used a Plugin called Troi serial, this did the job,
