125Khz RFID module - UART

RDM 125KHz card mini-module is designed for reading code from 125KHz card compatible read-only tags and read/write card . It can be applied in office/home security, personal identification, access control, anti-forgery, interactive toy and production control systems etc.

Note: Module will notify whenever 125khz tag approaches, tag serial number will be send via TX pin. Easy way for a RFID module on MCU projects or PC connnection via UartSB.


  • Support external antenna
  • Maximum effective distance up to 50mm
  • Less than 100ms decoding time
  • UART TTL interface
  • Support EM4100 compatible read only or read/write tags
  • Built-in external bi-color LED and buzzer driver
  • Small outline design


May include key specification and other specifications.
