Aparna Vijay asked 2 weeks ago
I am a researcher working on RFID readers. A few months back, I purchased an M6e Nano RFID reader, which I am connecting to an Arduino Uno microcontroller board. I plan to network a few RFID readers together to cover a wider read range area. Is it possible to connect multiple M6e Nanos to the same Arduino board, or are there other devices or readers that are capable of this function? Is there any other way to integrate the readers together?

I spoke with engineers at Jadak, which makes the RFID reader you are working with. They tell me that, yes, it is possible to connect multiple M6e series modules (M6e-A, M6e-m, M6e-Micro or M6e-Nano) to an Arduino board. You would need to use the company’s ThingMagic Mercury API SDK as a software interface to connect.
