Free tool - µFR2FileSystem

µFR2FileSystem is very useful tool which perform keyboard simulation, NFC RFID data reading, data parsing and writing into several formats and sending data to MySQL database via HTTP. These facts makes it very convenient for bulk data collecting, creating inventory and logs.

Step 1. Log directory path configuration

Edit “uFR2FileSystem.ini” file and specify directory path where you want to create the folder with log files. Enter the desired path in selected field. Otherwise log directory will be created in the parent folder of the application.

Step 2. HTTP function – server path configuration

Server URL needs to be specified in order to use HTTP Send function of uFR2FileSystem application for online database integration. Localhost server could be used as well or you can run the test on D-Logic demo database (this URL is already specified in the uFR2FileSystem.ini).

Each log file is empty since no activity has been recorded yet.

Right click the uFR2FileSystem system tray icon to view (enable/disable) application functions.

Step 4. Reading and event recording

When a card is read, the event will be recorded in the log files.

card_actual.txt records log activity for the last read card. The log file has the following form:

[card serial number], [date of reading], [time of reading]

card_log.txt is log file that creates the list of all recorded readings in the following form:

[card serial number], [date of reading], [time of reading]
[card serial number], [date of reading], [time of reading]
[card serial number], [date of reading], [time of reading]

"uFR2FileSystemContent" folder contains log files for each read card individually. UID is used as a file name of the log file. Data is recorded in the following form:

[card serial number], [date of reading], [time of reading]
[cards whole content]

Step 5. Online database view

Logs list will be shown online by running the ReadData.php script on the server specified in the “.ini” file.

Please visit our web site http://dld.is.d-logic.net/index.php/download/ufr-nfc-reader-writer-download for instructions on how to make your own mySQL database and server.

If HTTP Send function is disabled, logs will be stored in nosend_content.txt. All collected logs will be proceded to the online data base when the HTTP Send function is enabled again.

Keyboard Simulation function

Right click uFR2FileSystem system tray icon and select Keyboard Simulation option.

When Keyboard Simulation function is enabled, you can input your  content into any selected field or form by simply reading a card.

To fill the form, use comma, tab or some other separator when you write data. With Keyboard Simulation function, all that data will be entered into the form with just one reading.
