RFID initialize

This block launches a processor automatically. Use one instance of this block per project.

The RFID initialize block is used to set up the Parallax RFID module. The EN and SOUT pins on the module must be matched to the Propeller Activity Board pins they are connected to.

If you have defined a constant using the constant define block, the constant will show up in all of the pin menus and can be selected instead of a numbered pin:

RFID read

The RFID read block reads the ID number from an RFID tag near the sensor. If no tag is detected, it provides a value of 0 (zero).

RFID disable/enable

The RFID disable/enable block depending on the option chosen in the dropdown menu, disables or enables the RFID sensor.

RFID close

The RFID close block closes the RFID object and frees up the resources the object was using inside of the Propeller microcontroller.
