More Info

The Protocol panel lets you send SkyeTek Protocol commands to the reader and decode the responses. This lets you test commands that your application might send to the reader.

To build a command and send it to the reader:

  1. Select the command from the Command pull-down list.
    • Valid fields for the command you select are highlighted while invalid fields are grayed out.
    • The Request display changes as you select or deselect  options for the command.
    • Click the checkboxes next to the Command list to sort the commands into functional groups.
  1. Click the Flags checkboxes to select the flags you want to use with the command.
  2. (Optional) Select the Tag parameters including Tag Type, AFI, Session, and TID (TID also requires a lengh).
  3. (Optional) Select Memory parameters including Address, Blocks, and Data (Data also requires a length). Consult the tag manufacturer’s specifications for valid memory addresses for the tag you are using.
  4. Select the command Mode (binary or ASCII).
  5. Press “Send” to send the command to the reader. SkyeWare displays the response in the Response list and decodes the read-only fields at the bottom of the screen. The Request and Response lists display multiple entries as you send more commands and receive more responses.
  6. (Optional) To repeat a command, select it from the Request list and click “Send”.
    • Click the “Clear” button next to the Request list  to erase the list.
  1. (Optional) To decode a previous response, select the response from the Response list. SkyeWare automatically decodes and redisplays the read-only response fields.
    • Click the “Clear” button next to the Request list  to erase the list.
  1. (Optional) To send non-standard commands, you can edit the Request field directly and press “Send”.
  2. (Optional) To run a new command, click the topmost “Clear” button to erase the current command information, then repeat this procedure.
