\Lib\ReaderServer\DTRHF\ directory. You do not need to select a file, just this directory. The Serial Port drop down list allows the name of the serial port that the reader is connected to be selected. It is also possible to edit this line to enter a custom name. Table 6 5.1.1 Opening a Static Connection Select Connection from the main ReaderManager menu. The connection menu is shown in Figure 9. Figure 9 Reader Manager Guide Page 13 of 62 40-10-006-DOC 15/09/2006 Select the connection profile you would like to connect to. Statically defined connection profiles are shown below the Close Current Connection item. The message on the right of the status bar will change to Connected in green if the ReaderManager successfully connected to the reader. For connections to a ReaderServer on the same computer, a status message will indicate that the server is being started automatically. This takes a little longer than a network connection because of this activity. 5.1.2 Opening a Dynamic Connections ReaderManager uses multicast addressing to discover readers on a network. Figure 10 shows a typical connection menu showing various readers detected on a network. It is not necessary to define a profile for readers to be discovered on a network. Figure 10 Readers are labelled as either: - or as, - or as, - . When the menu item is highlighted the MAC and IP address is shown on the status bar. 5.2 Closing a Connection When connected to a reader, the menu item Close Current Connection can be selected in the Connection menu. If a local ReaderServer has been automatically started when the connection was established, it will be automatically shutdown as well. Reader Manager Guide Page 14 of 62 40-10-006-DOC 15/09/2006 6 Tools This section gives a more detailed explanation of the System tools available in the Tools menu. It is possible to open more than one tool at the same time. They are shown overlapped in the main window area. The Window menu contains options which allow the open windows to be cascaded or tiled. Also, any open tool can be selected, so it can be seen in the foreground. Some tools will issue commands to the reader to change its operating state. Because of this, some tools cannot be used at the same time because they operate by expecting a particular mode of operation. In this case, closing the window or ReaderManager will not solve the problem, because the reader is still operating in whatever mode it was told to. If you think the reader has become confused in a case like this, the best way to resolve it is to shut down the ReaderManager and the reader, then start from scratch. Fortunately, most windows are passive and do not cause problems like this. Reader Manager Guide Page 15 of 62 40-10-006-DOC 15/09/2006 6.1 Configuration System This tool is used to view the reader’s hardware module part numbers and version numbers. The tool is also used to set the networks settings and to change the name of the reader as seen on the network. To access this tool, select Tools->System->Configuration System. The configuration system tool consists of two tab items: 1. System configuration – shows part and version numbers of various components which make up a reader. 2. Network configuration – shows the current reader network settings. 6.1.1 System Configuration Tab The configuration system tool is shown in Figure 11. Your section names, part and version numbers may be different to what is shown in this document, depending on what type of reader, ReaderManager is connected to. Most fields in the configuration system require a password to change the field value. The CustomerID field does not require a password and is provided for the user to assign a descriptive name to the reader. This name will appear in the multicast messages from the reader and will be shown in the dynamic connection area on the Connection menu. Table 7 describes the various elements of the tool. Figure 11 Reader Manager Guide Page 16 of 62 40-10-006-DOC 15/09/2006 Index Description Click this tab to show the part numbers and version numbers of various components which make up a reader. Click this tab to show the reader’s network settings. This field allows the user to give the reader a descriptive name. This name will appear on the dynamic connection list and will be the hostname of the reader on the network. 1. Click the field column opposite Customer ID. 2. Enter the name you would like assigned to the reader. 3. Press Enter. Click this button to unlock the password protected fields. The user will be prompted to enter a password. Click this button to save any changes to the reader. Click this button to refresh the list from the last saved values. Click this button to delete a custom field. Only custom fields can be deleted. Click this button to add a custom field name and value to any reader section. Click this button to create a packing report prior to shipping a reader. Table 7 6.1.2 Network Configuration Tab The Network Configuration tab provides fields for the user to setup the reader to get an IP address from a DHCP server to use a static IP address. The network configuration tab is shown in Figure 12. Figure 12 Index Description Tick this to set the reader to get an IP address from a DHCP server. If (1) is not ticked enter the IP address used by the reader. Enter the subnet mask based on the IP address entered in (2) Enter the default gateway IP address. (Optional) Table 8 Reader Manager Guide Page 17 of 62 40-10-006-DOC 15/09/2006 6.2 Console The console dialog provides a command line interface to a reader. Reader commands are described in the Application Programmers Guide (40-01-000-DOC). The Command Entry area also accepts Python code. The console tool is shown in Figure 14. Table 8 describes the various elements of the Console tool. To access this tool select, Tools->System->Console. Figure 13 Index Description Message Log window shows all message received from the reader. Window size adjustment bar. Use this to change the size of the Message Log and Command Entry windows. Command Entry window provides an area to enter command to send to the reader. Figure 14 Clicking the right mouse button in the Message Log brings up a menu. This is the means of controlling the behaviour of the console. • If text has been selected in the Message Log window, it can be copied into the clipboard for pasting elsewhere. • Clear will remove all the text in this window. • Show Tag Replies enables the display of tag messages and tag expired message. By default, this is turned off, because in applications where large numbers of tags are being processed, it will bring the application to a halt updating this window with tag messages. Each time this option is selected, it will turn this option on or off. Reader Manager Guide Page 18 of 62 40-10-006-DOC 15/09/2006 • Show Commands Sent if ticked will enable the display of all commands sent from this application in any window to the reader. This is an excellent diagnostic tool if you are seeing error messages from the reader in response to a command or you just want to see how the various tools work by looking at what they send. • Show Messages enables the display of all other messages that the reader sends. This includes error messages, so normally it is advisable to never turn this option off. • Open Log File... controls the facility to record all the text that appears in this window into a file. When this option is selected, a file open dialog will appear, allowing you to select the directory and filename to use. If the log filename you have selected already exists, you will be prompted to either Replace (overwrite) or Keep (append to the end of the file) the log file. This message also shows how large the file currently is in bytes. While the log file is open, this menu item will change to Close Log File(xxxx) with the name of the log file shown within the parenthesis. Selecting this option will close the log file. When running this application under Windows, the log file contents will not appear complete if viewed with an outside application until the file is closed or the application exited. This is the behaviour of Windows itself with open files. This does not occur when run under Unix systems. Note that if a log file is open when the ReaderManager is exited, it will be reopened when it is started the next time. Reader Manager Guide Page 19 of 62 40-10-006-DOC 15/09/2006 6.3 Grid of Tag Sight Counts This tool shows a graphical representation of tag sighted by the reader. To access this tool select, Tools->System->Grid of tag sight counts. This tool is shown in Figure 15. When a tag is placed on the reader the cells turn light blue and shows the specific ID. The tool can also be setup to show the number of times the tag has been sighted and show data read from the tag. Expired tags are shown as a grey cell. Right click on the grid to bring up a menu which provides several options to configure the grid, these are: Clear: - Allows the user to clear the table and select preferences. Note that Del can be used as a shortcut to clear the table. Show Counter: - When ticked shows the number of times a tag has been sighted. Show Data: - When ticked shows the data reader from the last command the tag responded to. Rows and Columns: - Provides a dialog to set up the number or rows and column in the grid. Font: - Shows a dialog which can be used to change the font. Figure 15 Reader Manager Guide Page 20 of 62 40-10-006-DOC 15/09/2006 6.4 Immediate Command This tool is useful to construct an Immediate command. To access this tool, select Tools->System->Immediate Command. Immediate commands are sent to tags after the initial interrogate cycle. These commands can be sent to specific tags or to groups of tags. A more detailed of description of immediate commands is given in the Application Programmer’s Guide (40-01-000-DOC). The tool is shown in Figure 16, the elements are described in Table 9. 12 13 14 15 16 17 10 11 Figure 16 Index Description Index The Command group box is used to select if the command is a read command or a read and write command. 10 Click to preview the complete Immediate Command. No command is sent to the reader. Not used 11 Click this to send the command to the reader. The Reply group box is used to select if the reply is a Short reply or a Normal reply. Normal replies contain more detailed information about the tag being read. Enter the start address being read from the tag. This field accepts a single word decimal value. 12 Reader Manager Guide Select the channel on which the reply will be received. 13 Enter the command number sent with the Immediate command. This value is returned in the Timestamp field of the reply. This field accepts a single word hexadecimal value. 14 Enter the Specific ID of the tag being read from or written to. Leaving this field blank means all tags will respond to the command. This field accepts a two word hexadecimal value. This is useful to read or write to a single tag in a stack of tags. Page 21 of 62 40-10-006-DOC 15/09/2006 Enter the number of words to read. This field accepts a single word decimal value Description Index Description Index Description 15 Enter the Group ID of tags you would like to be affected by the command. Only tags with a matching Group ID will respond to the command. Leaving this field blank means all tags will respond to the command. This field accepts a single word hexadecimal value. 16 Enter the Conditional ID used in the command. Only tags with a Conditional ID equal to or less than the value in this field will respond. Leaving this field blank means all tags will respond. This field accepts a single word hexadecimal value. 17 This field is used to enter a password for tags which are password protected. This field should be left blank for tags which are not password protected. This field accepts a three word hexadecimal value. Enter the start write address or used the scroll arrows to set the start write address. Enter the data to write to the tag. The number of data fields depends on the start address. Write data should be entered from left to write. It is not necessary to enter data into all the fields. Entering no data will set the lock pointer. Select this option to write ASCII text. Select this option to write hexadecimal data. Table 9 Typical usage of this tool is as follows: To read two words from address 10 do the following: 1. Select Read in the Command group box. 2. Select Short reply in the Reply group box. 3. Enter 10 in the Address field in the Read group box. 4. Enter 2 in the Length field in the Read group box. 5. Click Send. To write two hexadecimal words 1234 and 5678 to address 12 and 13 and read the response do the following: 1. Select Read/Write in the Command group box. 2.

Reader Manager Guide Page 22 of 62 40-10-006-DOC 15/09/2006 6.5 Interrogate Command This tool used to set the Interrogation command. To access this tool, select Tools->System->Interrogate Command This tool is shown in Figure 17. This is the command that is sent continuously in an effort to identify new tags entering the reader. If you do not want to specify a read address and length, then put an address of 10 (for example) and a length of 0 (zero). Once the settings are made, press Send to transmit the command to the reader. The fields operate in the same way as the fields on the Immediate command tool. There are two additional fields, namely Pre Script and Post Script. These fields are used to define Python scripts which are run before the command (Pre Script) and after the command (Post Script). Figure 17 Reader Manager Guide Page 23 of 62 40-10-006-DOC 15/09/2006 6.6 Memory Map This tool allows the entire memory of tags to be examined and changed. It also supports creation of tag configurations that define a series of writes that can be applied to any tag. To access this tool, select Tools->System->Memory Map Whenever a tag is clicked once, the memory panes will be updated to reflect that tag. This tool is shown in Figure 18, its elements are described in Table 10. 12 11 13 Figure 18 Index Description List of all current tags and tag configurations. Whenever a new tag is placed on the reader, it will appear in this list. Each tag is identified by its specific ID. The colour of this ID changes according to context: • Green for a new tag. It will remain in this colour until all the tag's memory has been read. • Blue for a tag that has been completely read. This is an active tag that is ready to be written to. • Grey when a tag has expired. This indicates the tag has left the field or has been muted indefinitely. • Red when writes to the tag are being attempted. Usually, a tag will remain in this state for a short time while the writes are being performed. Select this tab to view / change tag system memory. Select this tab to view / change tag user memory. Reader Manager Guide Page 24 of 62 40-10-006-DOC 15/09/2006 Index Description Shows system tag memory: • The Lock column shows the position of the lock pointer. If the check box is ticked the address is locked. Once changed the Lock pointer can’t be undone. • To change the data at a system memory address, edit the number in the Value column. • To change the Configuration word, select the configuration from drop down list in the details column at address 6. • To set the Configuration word to set the tag to password protected, check the Password Required checkbox. Shows various information about the selected tag. If there is a need to write the same data to multiple tags, then configurations make this easy. Click New Configuration to enter the name to remember this configuration by. Then click on the configuration. All the memory is shown as FFFF. Simply change the memory locations required. To apply these changes to a real tag, click on the configuration name, keeping the mouse button held down, move the mouse and drag it over the tag you wish to apply the changes to. When the mouse button is released, the changes will be applied to the tag. They will not be writen to the tag, but changes the tag representation so that the changes are represented in red as if the user had manually entered them. Click buttongs (13) or (14) to write to the tag. Click this to refresh the tag list – all tags will be re-sighted. Click this button to delete the selected configuration. Click this to clear the tag list. 10 Click this to revert to the selected tags current state. 11 Click this to write to all tags in the tag list. 12 Click this to write only to the selected tag. Table 10 To change the value of a memory location, click once on any cell in User Memory or the Value column of System Memory and edit the hexadecimal value. Any changed value from what is on the tag will be shown in red. It is also possible to enter text in the As Text column of User Memory, though this should be used with caution. Only plain text can be entered in this way and care must be taken to move to the correct address. When changes to a tag are complete, make sure the tag is in the reader field, then click Write To Tag. After a brief period in red while the writes are occurring, the tag memory should change to black for all the changed values indicating success. If the user decides not to write to the tag, Clear Changes will revert to the tag's current state. Clear Tags will remove all current tags from the list.

Each step must be completed for all axes / antennas before the next step is started. When a setup stage is complete a green tick is shown next to the setup stage description in the Reader setup progress frame. Ensure the Use Wizard check box is ticked, then click Go. 6.8.1 Load Configuration This form is used to initialise the tool by loading the current reader configuration from the reader or by loading a previously saved configuration from a file saved on disk. The configuration must be loaded each time this tool is opened. The Load a configuration form is shown in Figure 23 and the various elements are described in Table 12. Figure 23 Index Description Setup progress Form instructions Select this to initialise the tool from the current reader configuration. Select this to initialise the tool from a file saved on the disk Click this to load the selected configuration. Once the configuration is loaded click this to go to the next form. Table 12 Typically the sequence of events when using this form is: 1. Select the configuration you want to load. Reader Manager Guide Page 34 of 62 40-10-006-DOC 15/09/2006 2. Click Load settings. 3. Acknowledge the configuration has been loaded when the message box is shown. 4. Click Edit groups. 6.8.2 Create axis groups This form provides an interface for users to create or delete axis groups and to move antennas between groups. Groups are used to define different behaviours for groups of antennas. The concept of grouping antennas is described in more detail in the Programmers Guide (40-00-000-DOC). In most cases one group containing all antennas is sufficient. The Create axis group form is shown in Figure 24 and the elements are detailed in Table 13. Figure 24 Index Description Setup progress – should show Load a configuration as being complete. Axis group workspace. When more than one group is defined, click on an antenna icon then drag and drop it onto the group box. Create a new empty group. Not used. Delete an empty group Go back to the Load a configuration form. The tool configuration will be cleared and a new configuration will need to be loaded. Go to the Configure axis group form. Table 13 Reader Manager Guide Page 35 of 62 40-10-006-DOC 15/09/2006 Typical the sequence of events when using this form is (when more than one group is needed): 1. Click Add Active Group. 2. Move antennas from group 0 into the new group. 3. Click Configure groups. 6.8.3 Configure axis groups This form is used to configure reader settings for the groups created in the previous step. The following group parameters are setup using this form. • Independent axis – ticked if the antennas in the group do not operate as one axis. • Toggle reader ID – Ticked if the reader ID is toggled when the reader polls the axes in this group. • Group Priority – Set the group priority for all axes in this group. The group priority determines how often the antennas in this group are polled. Setting the group to disabled will result in none of the antennas in this group being polled during the normal axis switching cycle. The Programmers Guide (40-01-000-DOC) describes how to manually poll axes in a disabled group. • Tag Reply Mode – Set the reply mode for all axes in this group.

Reader Manager Guide Page 40 of 62 40-10-006-DOC 15/09/2006 5. Click Test Axis. 6.8.7 Test axis This form shows how well each axis / antenna pair is working. The test sends 10 tag commands and expects all commands to be received on each receiver stream. Readers such as the Mars-24 and Mars-8 have eight receiver streams; the axis test expects to receive replies on all eight streams. The form shown in Figure 30 shows the results of a successful antenna test for an eight stream reader. Readers such as the Mars-1, Mars-2, Mars-4, Mars-6 and MDR-1109 have two receiver steams, for these types of readers’ only receiver streams G and H should show replies. Channel G should show 10 replies and channel H should show more than 7 replies the other channels can be ignored. The form shown in Figure 31 shows the results of a successful test for a two steam reader. The form elements are described in Table 17. • This test must be done using a single tag placed on the antenna under test. • The tag must be configured as a Normal powered tag. • For all antenna types except the panel antenna we recommend using a 25mm round tag or one of equivalent size. For panel antennas we recommend using a credit card sized antenna. If your reader does not pass this test it will not read and write to tags reliably. Check there are no metal other sources of interference near the antenna. It is important that the test is stopped before this window is closed as this test configures the reader to operate in a different mode to what it would be set to when just reading and writing to tags. If the form is closed by accident disconnect ReaderManager from the reader and power cycle the reader.

To access this tool, select Tools->System->Table of tag messages The columns in the table depend on the message received by the reader. Figure 34 shows a typical response to an InterrogateAction command which reads two words from address. InterrogateAction(readAddress=10, readLength=2) A tag reply field will be placed under the corresponding table label and a column number. Only the columns that receive data will be displayed, thus creating an auto-adjusting table. Figure 34 Reader Manager Guide Page 46 of 62 40-10-006-DOC 15/09/2006 6.11 Tag Test The tag test tool can be used to test the reliability of tags. To access this tool, select Tools->System->Tag Test This is of use to tag manufacturers only. All tags in the field will have already been through this process. Each tag is sent 10 read commands and the number of replies is counted. If the tag passes a threshold, then a write command is sent. There are also optional additional write commands to configure the tag's behaviour. This tool is shown in Figure 35 and its controls described in Table 20. 10 11 Figure 35 Index Description Shows tag messages as they are being tested. It is advisable to resize the window so that a complete test of a single tag can be seen at once. Turn off power between tests will keep reader power off, except when a tag is being tested. This is useful for cases where the tag must be positioned before the test is performed. In this case, the Run Test button is enabled. This must be clicked each time a test is to be run. Fail double zero ID if ticked will reject tags with 00 for the lower byte of the specific ID. This was needed to handle a batch of tags that accidentally included 2 tags with the same ID of 00 in every batch of 256 tags. This is not needed for all tags other than those with this problem. Write to group ID and conditional ID writes values to 2 common tag configuration areas. The values are in hexadecimal. Write to configuration word writes to the tag configuration. See 3.7 of Chip Logical Specification document for details. Lock to word sets the tags lock pointer. Replies out of 10 to pass tag controls the pass/fail criteria. In most cases, the default 8/10 is a good value to use. The Number of successes field shows how many tags have been tested and passed successfully. This count can be reset by the Reset Success Count button. Reader Manager Guide Page 47 of 62 40-10-006-DOC 15/09/2006 Index Description Resets the test success counter. 10 The Save To Log button opens a dialog to save the messages displayed to a log file 11 When Turn off power between tests is ticked, click this to start the test. Table 20 Reader Manager Guide Page 48 of 62 40-10-006-DOC 15/09/2006 7 Reader Configurations This section describes ReaderManager’s script building tool. It is provided for users to create custom scripts and commands which are accessed from the main ReaderManager menu. A reader configuration is a collection of a combination of the following items: • A script which is run immediately. This is a number of any valid API commands and Python syntax. • A number of tag commands, which may be applied to interrogation, specific or immediate actions. • A number of action scripts, which may be applied to interrogation, specific or immediate actions. A given configuration may consist of just a single instance of one of these 3 things, or it may be a complex application involving multiple scripts and commands. This menu is used to create, edit and run reader configurations. It is intended to act as an aid for programmers who are building applications, by making the development process much easier. Building up complex scripts, in particular, can be a tricky process. It can also be used by anyone working with a reader to build up a set of custom commands and scripts which can be sent to the reader to put it into a particular operating mode. As reader configurations are defined, they are added to this menu, in a similar fashion to the way the Connection menu works. 7.1 Edit Configurations Dialog The first item in the Reader Configuration menu is Edit Configurations..., which opens up a dialog window where reader configurations can be created and edited. It shows a list of titles of reader configurations that have currently been defined. Pressing the right mouse button makes a local menu appear. Some of the items in this menu are specific to the configuration that was clicked on, while others apply generally. • New Configuration creates a new reader configuration. You will be prompted which tag type this configuration applies to. You will then be taken to an empty Reader Configuration window. • New Folder creates a new subdirectory into which configurations may be created. This allows them to be grouped into sub categories that make management easier if there are a lot of scripts. • Edit opens the Reader Configuration window for the currently selected item. • Cut, Copy & Paste allows you to make copies of existing configurations under a new name. This is very useful is there are a number of configurations that are very similar. • Rename opens up a small dialog that allows you to rename the currently selected configuration. • Delete deletes the currently selected configuration. 7.2 Reader Configuration Dialog The Reader Configuration dialog has 4 tabs that can be selected along the top. Reader Configuration is the overview, Scripts and Tag Commands defines the pieces that go to make up the configuration, and Assembly ties the pieces together into the order desired. The Reader Configuration tab shows the title, tag and reader types for this configuration. Note that the tag type cannot be changed because this affects other parts of the configuration in ways that are difficult to automate. The Preview button opens a window showing the complete configuration as it would be sent to the reader. Lines wraparound so long commands don't get hard to read. Reader Manager Guide Page 49 of 62 40-10-006-DOC 15/09/2006 The Scripts tab shows a list of titles of all of the Python scripts that have been defined for this configuration. Click on a title to view it. Right click and Edit... to change the script contents. The scripts used may contain optional markers of the form %(Parameter)s indicating the location of a parameter to be substituted. The user will be asked to provide parameter values when running the script. This is done through a dialog which has a list of parameter name and value pairs. The values entered are substituted into the scripts before it is sent to the reader. The Tag Commands tab shows a list of titles of commands that have been defined for this configuration. The Assembly tab allows all the scripts and tag commands that have been defined to be tied together in the desired way. The Title field of these items is used in combo boxes to identify the item in question. With the Immediate Configuration Change the script is sent to the reader in raw format with real newline characters. The Interrogation command sets the action tuple for the interrogation command. The Tag Specific Actions table shows 3 columns headed Pre Script, Tag Command & Post Script. This declares the action list to take with new tag. This list will be compiled and placed in an Actions() construct. The Add and Delete buttons allows the user to add and remove configurations, scripts and tag commands. The Save button starts disabled and is only enabled when a change is made. When it is clicked, the configuration details are saved in the configuration file.

The Upgrade form is accessed from the File menu item on the main reader manager menu. From the main reader manager menu, select File->Upgrade->Upgrade AReaderManager or x86 Readers. The upgrade form is shown in Figure 36. The form elements are shown in Table 21. The upgrade is applied to the reader when the reader is power cycled or the reader is reset. When a reader is applying the upgrade the start up time will be longer than normal, it could take up to two minutes for the reader to restart. DO NOT REMOVE THE POWER TO THE READER WHILE AN UPDATE IS IN PROGRESS. If both an operating system and reader server upgrade is required it is recommended to upgrade the operating first, reset the reader and then do the reader server upgrade. The upgrade form uses package files saved in the Upgrade directory. The default path for the Upgrade directory is a sub-directory under the Reader Manager install directory. To change the default Upgrade path use the Preferences menu item in the file menu (See section 4.1.1 File Menu). There should only be one package file per upgrade component. When an upgrade is released delete the older package file in the upgrade directory and replace with the new package file. Typical package names are: Filename Description Arm reader operating system version 2.02 upgrade package file. X86 reader operating system version 2.03 upgrade package file. Arm reader server version 3.13 upgrade package file. X86 reader server version 3.13 upgrade package file. Reader Manager Guide Page 51 of 62 40-10-006-DOC 15/09/2006 1 Figure 36 Index Description This frame shows all x86 and ARM based readers detected on the network. If ReaderManager is connected to a reader, this reader will be shown as the first item in the list and will be highlighted in red. ReaderManager does not need to be connected to a reader to use this dialog, multiple readers can be upgraded at the same time. Tick this to reset the reader after the upgrade package is copied to the reader. If this is ticked when the package is transferred to the reader, ReaderManager will be disconnected from the reader. Select the package to transfer to the reader. Select Reader server to upgrade the reader server application, select OS to upgrade the operation system. This text box shows the available upgrades to apply to the reader. If the package shows None as the version number there is no package available. Check the package filenames in the Upgrade directory. Click this to start the upgrade Once the upgrade is complete, click this to close the form and return to ReaderManager. Status area shows upgrade states and transfer progress. Error message are also displayed in this area. Table 21 Reader Manager Guide Page 52 of 62 40-10-006-DOC 15/09/2006 9 Troubleshooting 9.1 Can’t see my reader on the dynamic connection list • The computer IP address on the computer running ReaderManager must be in the same subnet as the reader. • The reader must be running ReaderServer or better. • AVR readers can not be discovered on the network. 9.2 My reader is behaving strangely or tags are timing out. • Have you setup the reader to use the antenna you are using? Use the Reader Setup tool. • Is the antenna tuned correctly and has the antenna passed the antenna test in the Reader Setup tool? • Restore the reader to its default settings using the Reader Settings tool. 9.3 • My antenna is not in the Reader Setup tool antenna list. Log onto the Magellan Technology website, get and install the latest versions of ReaderManager and ReaderServer. If your antenna is still not in the list then the antenna is not meant to be used with the type of reader you are using. Reader Manager Guide Page 53 of 62 40-10-006-DOC 15/09/2006 10 Reporting a Problem If you are having a problem with the ReaderManager, you will need to send a report describing your problem. To make diagnosis easier, please try and supply this information with any problem report. • Have you tried connecting to the reader with a different PC? • Have you successfully installed the ReaderManager application? • In the ReaderManager, select the Help/About ReaderManager menu item and record what version numbers are shown in the window that appears. • What type of reader are you using? • Has the reader worked in the past and has just stopped working? • Please be a descriptive as possible: • • Saying, “I’ve placed a stack of 10 gaming chip tags on antenna XX four tags timeout every 3 seconds.” is better than saying, “My tags timeout.” Send as much information about the reader as possible, please do the following: • Connect to the reader. • Open the Console. • Type Settings() then press enter. • Type Settings() then press enter. • Type then press enter. • Type AntennaSettings() then press enter. • Right click in the Message Log area of the Console and click Select All. • Right click in the Message Log area of the Console and click Copy. • Paste all the information into an email and send it to Magellan Technology.

Reader Manager Guide Page 56 of 62 40-10-006-DOC 15/09/2006 13 Appendix A – AVR Options 13.1 Upgrading An AVR Series Reader To upgrade the firmware in the reader, follow this sequence of steps: • Make sure that the ReaderServer is NOT running. In most environments, just disconnect and the server will be shut down. If you have selected Start server when computer boots in the Connection settings or manually started it, closing the connection will not close the ReaderServer. In this case, connect and type Exit() into the console window and press Enter to terminate the server and close the connection. • Select the File menu then select the Upgrade AVR Readers... menu option. The upgrade window appears. • The previous serial port used in this window is automatically reselected. If this is the first time this application has been run, the first available port detected will be used. Make sure the correct serial port for the reader is selected from the drop down list of serial port names. If you do not know which serial port number to use, see SS. Ports detected by Windows are shown with a + next to them. Note that Windows sometimes reports ports that are not actually there. • Unplug the power from any AVR Series Reader, which is most simply done by removing the power jack plug from its socket in the cover plate on the underside of the unit. • Plug the power in and the software should indicate the connection has been made When the connection has been established, the icon changes and the text changes in the middle of the window and on the status line. If this does not happen, check the port number being used and make sure the serial cable is correctly plugged in. • Click on the Firmware Upgrade tab. Follow step 1 and select the file to upload. For current AVR Series readers, it is To get this file, see SS. The file can be located anywhere on the system. • Click on Program under step 2. The loading process will begin, with progress being continuously displayed in a progress bar on the screen, and indicated by rapid flickering of the green LED on the reader. • When the upload has finished, close the upgrade window. Remove power from the reader and reapply to reset it. The ReaderServer can now be started and connection with the upgraded reader established. The Altera Upgrade tab follows a similar procedure to upgrade the programmable logic device on the board. There are a number of data files that can be used depending on the type of reader being used. Check with technical support that the correct RBF file has been supplied for the reader. There are a number of other controls on this window, but they are primarily for testing and manufacturing purposes. 13.2 Opening A Connection Using The Command Line The Automatically Connect On Startup option works well if only a single copy of ReaderManager needs to run at the same on a single computer. But if there is a need to run multiple copies, then the software doesn't know which connection to make automatically with each copy that is started. To resolve this dilemma, ReaderManager can accept the connection name as a command line parameter. For example, this could be put in a batch/script file: python "New 1310" This application will not return to the command prompt until the ReaderManager has exited. To run multiple copies, it is necessary to run each from separate command windows (or batch files). In this example, python is given without a path, but in many cases, it will be necessary to supply the path to the Python interpreter, for example, C:\Program Files\Python23\Python. Reader Manager Guide Page 57 of 62 40-10-006-DOC 15/09/2006 This command line execution must always be run in the directory where the file resides, which on Windows is
