µFR Multi-Reader Lazarus SDK

Lazarus SDK & Source Code Software Example For Multiple µFR Series Readers Implementation

µFR Multi-Reader Lazarus SDK with source code software example is an excellent development tool for developing the NFC RFID solutions for multiple µFR readers connected to a single host. This software tool enables centralized control of readers connected to one host, as well as integration with other systems that require communication with multiple readers at the same time.

Software manual

1. µFR Multi-Reader Lazarus – Run Software

Download: ufr-lazarus-multi-reader

Download and extract the SDK software pack. Navigate to the software rood folder and execute the TestMultiUfr_Laz.exe file.

ufr-lazarus-multi-reader-execute

This action opens the Lazarus software graphic interface.

2. µFR Multi-Reader Lazarus – Get Device Count Function

Click the Get Device Count button to detect all the µFR Series devices attached. This function will automatically search for all the available µFR Series devices connected to the current host. If there is any µFR device connected, the software will display the total number of detected devices in the Number Of Devices field  (at this button right side).

2. µFR Multi-Reader Lazarus – Open All Devices Function

Click the Open All Devices button to establish the communication with all the µFR Series devices attached. The status bar will display the list of the index of the connected device and their handler assigned for the current session.

3. µFR Multi-Reader Lazarus – Get Device Info Function 

To get all the device details, click the Open All Devices button.  The Device list will display the µFR Series devices’ details. Check the list to make sure that all the attached devices are detected. If some device is missing, restart the software and repeat the previous step. If the missing device still doesn’t appear on the device list, check the installed FTDI drivers and find more details in µFR Series API.

4. µFR Multi-Reader Lazarus – Get Card Info Function

Now, everything is ready to read the cards. Bring the card into the desired µFR device reading field. Select the device on the Device List and click the Get Card Info button. The software left panel will display the selected reader index and info, as well as the read card data.
