  • I have the 4800bps receiver as well and it will work at lower speeds. Something I noticed is that if I leave the system connected to power/ground, it will work after about 20 min(up to 2400 bps). If I just plug it in and try using it, I will get pretty bad data. Try using it at 300 or even 110 bps to make sure it is actually working.

  • I played with this through a serial port and a max232 chip and it seemed to work perfectly up to 2400bps, but any higher and I had issues(I didn't use an antenna and only had 5 volts to the transmitter). Try connecting all ground and 5 volt pins on the receiver.

  • From the user manual: "The length of the sensors can be trimmed by Tekscan to predefined lengths of 2?, 4? and 6? or can be trimmed by the customer. If the customer trims the sensor, a new connector must be attached. This can be accomplished by purchasing staked pin connectors and a crimping tool. A conductive epoxy can also be used to adhere small wires to each conductor."

No public wish lists :(
