Enrollment Reader Setup

Enrollment Reader Setup

The universal card format allows the customer to easily takeover existing sites and handles multiple formats without knowing specific card information about the existing cards. The Universal Format only applies to the VertX/Edge hardware and will require the use of an enrollment reader. On first use, the PC Prox must be configured for the proper bit structure.  

  1. To modify the bit format of an enrollment reader, open Internet Explorer and go to http://www.rfideas.com/Software/  to download the required software application.
  2. Reference the RF Ideas software installation manual for any questions regarding software installation.
  3. From the Windows Start Menu click, All Programs, RF Ideas, PC Prox, pcProx.exe start the pcPROX application.
  4. If the enrollment reader application displays a 'Not Connected' message on the bottom left of the application, go to the Connect Tab.
  5. Click on the "Auto-Connect Device" option
  6. If successfully connected, a 'Written OK' message will appear when writing to the reader.
