FX9500 Operating mode switching to standby on its own

After enabling Active mode, the reader works as expected, however it defaults back to standby after about 20 seconds. Is there a way to make sure the reader stays in active mode?

Hi Alex,

I didn't notice the same issue happen in FX9500.
Did you upgrade to latest firmware?:https://portal.motorolasolutions.com/Support/US-EN/Resolution?solutionId=101660&productDetailGUID=9289119a2a4cf310VgnVCM…

Also, I believe you are accessing the operating mode from Web Console. Fyi, the web console was meant for basic demo of tag reading and it is not for a complete solutions.

if you would like to test on further functionality of FX9500, I would recommend you to test with Zebra Demo Application.

Session One:

Power Session:

For Host Application Development, you can refer to Zebra EMDK for .Net:

After the installation, you can refer to Start > Programs > Motorola EMDK for.Net v2.9 > helps > Programmer guide > RFID 3 > Generic Reader interface:

There are samples host application that you could refer.
They are located at START > PROGRAMS > MOTOROLA EMDK FOR .NET v2.9 > SAMPLES

Examples- CS_RFID3_Host_Sample1 and CS_RFID3_Host_Sample2:



Hope this helps.

Tsu Beng.

Normally, the DLL is exist after you installed the EMDK.

I've had a look but I can only seem to find C:\Program Files (x86)\Motorola EMDK for .NET\v2.9\Integrator\PC\Driver\64bits\RFIDAPI32PC.dll - which throws an error message when attempting to load into visual studio. What is the DLL called which I should be searching for?

Hi Alex,

You've found the correct dll file-RFIDAPI32PC.dll.

May I know what version of VS you are using?Fyi, currently only VS 2003 and 2008 able to work properly with EMDK.


By Default, the samples have all the dll included and can be execute without any errors.

Thanks.

I'm running VS2013, which is the version we have invested in. Is there any reason the SDK isn't supported in the latest versions?

I've tried to download VS2008 C# Express, however I can't create smart device application unless I'm running Professional, which cannot be purchased anymore as far as I'm aware. What would you recommend I do?

Hi Alex,

I believe the API in EMDK still works but you unable to import/use the samples directly.

you still can refer to emdk API in help files for development.

But of cause, you should develop the mobile application based on the supported .NET CF v3.5 for WM6.5 devices.

Thanks.
