How to control the distance or field in which the reader scanning capacity works
Serial number of the unit: 21010523020108
Model number or product name: RFD8500 RFID Reader
ZEBRA Android SDK Version: 184.108.40.206
Android target SDK version: 31
Android min SDK version: 24
We have a specific requirement by our client for a customized native Android app.
Our client wants to control the distance or field in which the reader scanning capacity works. He has 2 small rooms side-by-side and when he starts scanning currently device scans from both rooms but he wants to scan from only the room he is currently present.
We need to provide a power level slider into our native Android app by which we can set or program the RFID reader to only work in a small field or distance.
Looking forward from you to indicate me any specific support in ZEBRA Android SDK or any code sample by which we can achieve this specific requirement.
I believe you can use the setTransmitPowerIndex api to change the power of the antenna, which would change the range:
Antennas.AntennaRfConfig antennaRfConfig = mConnectedReader.Config.Antennas.getAntennaRfConfig(1); antennaRfConfig.setTransmitPowerIndex(270);
