µFR Nano Online Reader Protocols Structure

µFR Nano Online Reader protocols structure #

This section will describe how to use the µFR Nano Online reader.

Master mode POST request

  • In master mode, if the card is detected, the device sends an HTTP POST request to the host.
  • HTTP response must be “OK” or “FAILED” for​ firmware version 1.5.4 and below.
  • If the response is “OK”, the device will beep once and turn on the green LED.
  • If the response is “FAILED”, the device will beep twice and turn on the red LED.
  • If the server doesn’t respond, the device will beep three times and turn on the red LED.
  • For firmware version 1.6.0 and above see Master mode POST response protocol section.

Master mode HTTP POST request structure #

 

*     Form parameters    
Linear read disabled SN UID   CTRLINFO   ONLINE
Linear read enabled SN UID   CTRLINFO   ONLINE DATA
  Reader Serial     Control   Number 1 or Linear read
Description Card UID   number from   2 depends data as HEX
number    
      0 to 255   of reader string

 

The master mode POST response

  • When the server receives a POST request, µFR Nano Online is waiting for an HTTP response
  • The response contains HEX String commands from the µFR COM protocol
  • The response has to contain 3 rows delimited by the newline character (\n), one for each UART
  • CMD-EXT must be sent in one string preceded by CMD, without any delimiter
  • Sending multiple commands can be done by splitting multiple strings with a whitespace delimiter.

Master mode HTTP POST response structure #

 

Command sent to \n Command sent to \n Command sent to Transparent
UART2 UART1 UART

 

Master mode UDP broadcast #

  • In master mode, if the card is detected and UDP broadcast is enabled, the device sends UDP broadcast
  • If an HTTP POST request is enabled, the indication is the same as described above
  • If the HTTP POST request is disabled, the device will beep once and turn on the green LED.

Master mode UDP broadcast structure #

80/ReaderSerialNumber/CardUID/0

UDP discovery server #

  • UDP discovery server is used for finding µFR readers in local networks
  • Send any UDP packet to µFR reader port 8880 and wait for a response.

UDP discovery server response example #

    *         UART 1 PORT         UART 2 PORT    
*   IP address   Port CP   Baud rate   Port CP   Baud rate  
DEC 192   168 1 5 8881 ‘T’   115200   8882 ‘U’   250000  
HEX C0   A8 01 05 B1 22 54 00 C2 01 00 B2 22 55 90 D0 03 00

*CP is a network communication protocol. ‘T’ stands for TCP and ‘U’ for UDP.

µFR Nano Online only COM protocol commands #

  • These commands are µFR Nano Online only
  • Commands are sent in ASCII mode
  • Commands are used in Transparent, Bluetooth Serial, and Bluetooth Low Energy mode.
Command Description
!TURN_MST_MODE_ON! Toggle the device to WiFi master mode.
!TURN_SLV_MODE_ON! Toggle the device to WiFi slave mode.
!TURN_BLE_MODE_ON! Toggle the device to Bluetooth Low Energy mode.
!TURN_SPP_MODE_ON! Toggle the device to Bluetooth Serial mode.
!TURN_HID_MODE_ON! Toggle device to Bluetooth HID mode.
!TURN_AP0_MODE_ON! Turn off Access Point when Bluetooth is using.
!TURN_AP1_MODE_ON! Turn on Access Point when Bluetooth is on.
!TURN_LD0_MODE_ON! Turn off the  LED indication when Bluetooth is on.
!TURN_LD1_MODE_ON! Turn on the LED indication when Bluetooth is using.
