RFID-Sensor features

  • Identifies itself to receiver as normal sensor
  • Compatible with Revo Bump technology
  • Has five values: Tag  ID, Battery Capacity, Cycles-count, C-value and Cellcount
  • Cycle-count automatically increases with one after ~30 seconds powered (RC-Thoughts tag only)
  • User can write, re-write and erase tags straight from transmitter (Not allowed on Revo Bump tags)
  • User can change tags on sensor without power-cycling
  • Identifies to transmitter even without tag – Easier setup

Hardware Information

  • RC522 13.56Mhz RFID Read and write module
  • Atmega 328 3.3V Arduino compatible board
  • Custom PCB by RC-Thoughts to allow assembly without wires – will not break!
  • Easy access to reset-button for firmware-updates

Revo Bump Compatible!

Revo Bump is a clever technology from Revolectrix, more info here. The good part is that they use a compatible tag and store all kind of information on the tag. They also were kind to share the data-layout so I could confirm my reverse-engineered data-fields.

Usage on RC-Thoughts Jeti RFID-Sensor is even more easy than before:

  • No need to write the tag with Jetibox, already done by Revo Bump controller
  • All tag-values are the same
  • Cycle-count is managed by Revo Bump controller, that means no cycle increase in flight by RC-Thoughts Jeti RFID-Sensor
  • Usage with RC-Thoughts Jeti Tools RFID-Battery (here) is just the same as with our RFID-tags

Lua-app available!

RFID-Sensor can be used with free Lua-app RFID-Battery available from RC-Thoughts here. Available for DC/DS-16/24.
