Technical Description of the USB HF Reader Module

The URM (Universal HF Reader Module) is an ISO 14444A and ISO 14443B compatible proximity RFID read/write device operating at 13.56 MHz.

The HF RFID Reader is able to inspect, test, and personalize all compatible transponders as they are e.g. used in the public transport or e-Government sector and moreover it is fully compatible with the requirements of the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization).

The URM is characterized by high speed transactions, interoperability and flexibility. It is best suited to integrate RFID functionality into existing systems.

In view of its small dimensions, the USB HF RFID Reader can be fitted easily into small devices. Outward interfaces simplify the connection with a computer as well as the integration into micro-controller based systems. Digital IO lines allow interaction with third party hardware.

A RF-Interface based on the 50 Ohm system allows flexible, customized RFID Antenna designs. The RFID antenna can be located at a given distance to the URM and it can be connected to the URM by using standard RF Cables avoiding losses and RF-Shielding issues.

The URM RFID Reader Module supports reading distances up to 80 mm and communication speeds up to 848 kBit / sec.

Additional Features

An extendable modular design makes the URM highly customizable and allows Add-On modules for additional functionality. The available modules can e.g. switch between multiple antennas, add contact smartcard interfaces or add customized functions.

A comprehensive software development kit (SDK) including a PC/SC driver, a virtual comport driver (VCOM) and well documented functions and examples for most programming languages are supporting a steep learning curve and giving full access to all URM functions to the programmer.

A RFID Starter Kit containing all necessary components is available.

Customer Specific Add-On Modules

Customer specific Add-On modules can be realized. If external devices need e.g. analog signals or additional control lines to drive some hardware, the flexible Add-On design allows much additional functionality.

URM-F with Flange Enclosure

If the URM RFID Reader Module should be integrated into a device which comes not with its own housing, the available plastic enclosure protects the bare electronics and allows to attach the electronic to e.g. a switch board.

LucidIoT Secure Network IO controller for analog and digital signals. MQTT, Modbus/TCP

LucidIoT introduces IoT and many other functions to the LucidControl. LucidIoT is a secure network IO controller for acquisition and control of analog and digital signals. It can interface with up to 16 analog or digital IO channels.

LucidIoT is configurable and available with many options, which can be selected on the product page.
The picture beside shows the LIOT-DO8-I-DO8-I which is able to control 16 digital output channels.

If it is for example necessary to control 8 digital output and 4 analog 0-10V output channels, the LIOT-DO8-I-AO4-10V is the matching product configuration.

LucidIoT is a customizable data acquisition and control solution providing up the 16 IO channels.

LucidIoT allows installation of two IO slots 0 and 1. Each IO slot provides its own function class and type. A function class is e.g. digital output or analog input and define the general functionality of the IO slot. The function type specifies details of the function class like input voltage range.

A slot of the IoT controller can be configured in the following function classes:

  • Isolated Digital Input with 8 Channels (DI8) with 5V, 10V or 24V
  • Isolated Digital Output with 8 Channels (DO8) with solid state relays
  • Analog Input with 4/8 Channels (AI4/AI8) with e.g. 5V, 10V, 24V or 0-20mA
  • Analog Output with 4/8 Channels (AO4/AO8) with e.g. 5V, 10V, 24V or 4-20mA
  • RTD Input with 8 Channels (RI8) for Pt100 and Pt1000 Temperature Sensors

Each function class is available with different function types.



LucidIoT supports 10/100 Mbit Ethernet links and IPv4 and IPv6.

Low level protocols like NetBIOS, DHCP, DNS and TCP are provided.

Protocol Security

IoT devices are exposed to the Internet and security of the communication protocols is important. For many cloud services TLS/SLL is expected. LucidIoT supports a fast hardware implementation of cryptographic functions and supports X.509 certificates and private/public key encryption.

Responsive and Secure Web Pages

HTTPS offers the most convenient way to access LucidIoT values and configuration parameters. Also on mobile devices or tablet computers the responsive web design looks great.

In addition, customized web pages can be stored in the internal memory of LucidIoT. This allows the user e.g. to present measured data in a specific format.

MQTT Connectivity

MQTT is a simple standardized protocol made for exchanging e.g. measurement data. Many cloud servers like Amazon AWS support this protocol what allows LucidIoT to exchange data with nearly all infrastructures.

Moreover, MQTT opens the world to many smart home automation software like Home Assistant or openHAB.

Modbus/TCP Connectivity

Modbus/TCP is used by many automation devices. It allows LucidIoT to be integrated into existing systems supporting the protocol.

FTP Server

FTP gives access to the internal file system. This is very handy e.g. to download data log files to a local computer.


The JSON REST API is a secure and easy way to access LucidIoT values and configuration parameters. The device can execute and respond to JSON formatted requests

Data Logging Function

LucidIoT logs IO values (e.g. temperatures or voltages) with a time stamp to a data log file.

Synchronized Realtime Clock

The system clock can by synchronized by SNTP servers. It supports different time zones.

The system clock is used in many places, e.g. generating an accurate time stamp for the data logging function.

Internal File System

The file system provides 4 GByte of internal memory which can be used for data logging function. Files are accessible via FTP server.

User Access Management

Access to LucidIoT tunctions is controlled by the user access management. This allows the administrator to set up user accounts with restricted access rights.

System Diagnostic Function

The system diagnostic function logs system data to a log file.

It gives an overview of the resources and informs the user e.g. about configuration problems.

Easy Setup

LucidIoT is prepared to be installed in a switch cabinet. It has a wide-range 9-24V power supply and can be mounted on industry DIN-Rails.

The plug-able industry IO terminals ensure reliable connections to power supply and IO signals.

Device Compatibility

LucidIoT is compatible with software tools of the LucidControl series. Basic function of LucidIoT are accessible e.g. by the LucidIoCtrl command line tool.

This makes it easy for the user to migrate existing LucidControl installations to LucidIoT.

Firmware Update

Since IoT devices are exposed to the Internet, security risks must be closes quickly.

LucidIoT firmware is active developed and updates can be loaded to the device.

Developer Support

LucidIoT can be interfaced with many development environments. SDK/API are available for .NET and Python platforms.

Using the JSON REST API, developers can build their own interfaces based on the fully documented protocol.

Customized Solutions

We are the developer and manufacturer of LucidIoT and we are specialized in developing customized solutions which are not available in the standard configurations.

Please contact us if you have a special request.

Field of Applications

Industry 4.0

LucidIoT is best prepared for Industry 4.0 applications. The wide range of protocols makes communication with other components easy.

Data Monitoring & Logging

Send process data to the network or log them continuously on the internal file system for later inspection.

Manage Enterprise-Resource-Planning

LucidIoT can support your ERP system with realtime process data from your production facility.

Smart Home Automation

Integrate LucidIoT into popular smart home automation software like Home Assistant or openHAB.

Many home automation software support data exchange via a MQTT broker like Eclipse Mosquitto.

LucidIoT can publish values like temperatures or voltages to the MQTT broker and exchange data with the home automation software. In reverse it is also possible to control LucidIoT outputs by automations.
