ZC350 Mifare NFC encoding / reading


Audience

Hello,
we have a Zebra ZC350 and want to read the serial-number from a RFID-Mifare Card and write some informations on the Card (before/after printing process).
The Printer has the Mifare-Encoding Addon installed.
I verified the Link-OS-Java SDK but were unable to find a sample code where we can read/encode a Mifare RFID Card.
I found a tutorial how we can "position" a card for encidung, but no informations how we can encode/read the card on this tutorial:
http://techdocs.zebra.com/link-os/2-14/pc_card/content/examples/test/tes...
The Card SDK listed on zebra.com is only available for ZXP-Series Printers, but not compatible for the ZC350 printer.
Can you help us how we can do the encoding / serial number reading for this printer?
Thank you

The card reader was changed with the ZC350 as you've found. You'll need to download a new SDK for the reader from Elatec - https://www.elatec-rfid.com/support-center/downloads/twn4-devpack-instal...
It's been a while since I needed to download but the version I had was 3.10 which isn't listed any more but the 3.08 should have the manuals you need to get started- TWN4 Simple Protocol DocRev16.pdf and TWN4 PCSC Description DocRev5.pdf but 'm working in Windows and C#
The first thing you'll need to know is that you need to tell the reader which cards it should be detecting otherwise you won't get very far.
