RFID Reader Can't Read HID Cards [URGENT!]

by rfidquestion on Wed Aug 22, 2012 12:10 pm

Hello Adafruit,

I purchased your reader with the intention to read a hid rfid card. I can not seem to do this. Any advice, input, anything?

The HID Card is iClass and the same frequency. Even getting garbled junk would be better than nothing.

Thanks

The card is 13.56khz and it is an iClass protocol. It should be reading.

Yes, I can read the MiFare card but not a similar iClass card.

I believe iClass cards are ISO14443B which is supported by the PN532, but not having any cards I really can't offer any specific advice because I've never come across them. Someone on the libnfc forum might be able to offer some experience using these cards, but everyone I've worked with uses Mifare, and most of the libnfc comments tend to revolve around that well-understood card family.

I'm going to order the shield with the intention of reading/writing my personal iClass card. Has anybody had any progress with this?
