  • 4. Confidential & Proprietary RFID Data Loader Setup and RFID Tag Loading Installing the Application Installation of the RFID Data Loader is performed during setup of the IntelaTrac Client. By default, both versions of the Data Loader – for the USB SRM-1, and for the Serial SRM-1, are installed. The user can uncheck the unnecessary version when performing a “Custom” install, if desired: Configuring the Application Step 1 – Installing SRM-1 Drivers (USB ONLY) If using the USB version of the SRM-1, the USB drivers must be installed next. 1. Plug the USB cord into the SRM-1 and into the computer which will run the RFID. The “Found New Hardware Wizard” will appear. If the following screen appears, click the radio button marked “No, not this time” and click Next. Invensys Systems, Inc. Page 4 of 19 Last revised: October 3, 2008 Release 3.2.2
  • 5. Confidential & Proprietary 2. Advance as necessary through this process until the following screen appears. Click the radio button labeled “Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)” and click Next: 3. Click the radio button labeled “Search for the best driver in these locations,” uncheck the checkbox labeled “Search removable media (floppy, CD- Rom…)” and check the box labeled “Include this location in the search:” Invensys Systems, Inc. Page 5 of 19 Last revised: October 3, 2008 Release 3.2.2
  • 6. Confidential & Proprietary 4. Click the “Browse” button, and navigate to the “UsbDriver” subdirectory, which is located beneath the path to which the IntelaTrac Client was installed (by default: “C:Program FilesWonderwareIntelaTracSRM1UsbDriver”). Then, click OK: Invensys Systems, Inc. Page 6 of 19 Last revised: October 3, 2008 Release 3.2.2
  • 7. Confidential & Proprietary 5. Click Next: 6. The driver installation process will begin. Shortly, the following window will appear. Click “Continue Anyway:” 7. The driver installation process will then complete: Invensys Systems, Inc. Page 7 of 19 Last revised: October 3, 2008 Release 3.2.2
  • 8. Confidential & Proprietary Step 2 – Launch the Application Both versions of the Data Loader software are located in subdirectories under the IntelaTrac Client’s install location (by default, “C:Program FilesWonderwareIntelaTrac”).  RFID134K – Contains the SERIAL version of the RFID Data Loader (SATRFIDDataLoader.exe).  SRM1 – Contains the USB version of the RFID Data Loader (UDFDataLoader.exe) Open the appropriate subdirectory and launch the corresponding executable referenced above. Next, select Edit  Configure from the menu bar: Invensys Systems, Inc. Page 8 of 19 Last revised: October 3, 2008 Release 3.2.2
  • 9. Confidential & Proprietary Figure 1.1 Opening the Configuration Menu in the RFID Data Loader This will display the Link Configuration window in the Serial version, or the RFID Configuration window in the USB version. The options for each of these tabs are identical in both versions; the only exception is that the USB version does not contain the “Comm Port” tab. Invensys Systems, Inc. Page 9 of 19 Last revised: October 3, 2008 Release 3.2.2
  • 10. Confidential & Proprietary Figure 1.2 Configuration - Comm Port Tab Step 3 – Locating the Tag Loader (SERIAL ONLY) If using the Serial version of the Data Loader, next set the Serial Port by clicking the appropriate COM port designation for the RFID reader / writer. Then, click the Find Radio button and the following dialogue will appear: Figure 1.3 Ensure Connection Prompt Click OK. A second panel will appear: Invensys Systems, Inc. Page 10 of 19 Last revised: October 3, 2008 Release 3.2.2
  • 11. Confidential & Proprietary Figure 1.4 Telxon Y/N Prompt Click No (Unless using the Symbol 2234 in lieu of the RFID Tag Loader).  When configured properly, the message "Found SafeTrac RFID Tag Reader on Port X" (where X is the port on which the reader has been configured) will appear. Click Ok.  If the message “Could not find locate SafeTrac RFID Tag Reader” appears, check to be sure that the correct serial port was chosen on the Serial Port box of the Comm Port tab. Another possible cause of this error message is interference from other programs which use COM ports, e.g. ActiveSync. If ActiveSync is installed, try disabling its COM port use by selecting File  Connection Settings…, unchecking the “Allow serial cable or infrared connection to this COM port:” box, and then clicking Apply. Exit any other programs which use COM ports as well, and finally, try again. If neither of the above solves the problem, please contact Wonderware for assistance. Step 4 – Setting the .STO and .STU file location Click the “Misc Params” tab. The following will display: Invensys Systems, Inc. Page 11 of 19 Last revised: October 3, 2008 Release 3.2.2
  • 12. Confidential & Proprietary Figure 1.1 Configuration - Misc Params Tab Click the Browse button, and browse to the proper file path via the provided directory tree: Invensys Systems, Inc. Page 12 of 19 Last revised: October 3, 2008 Release 3.2.2
  • 13. Confidential & Proprietary Figure 1.2 Folder Browsing Then click Ok. NOTE: .STO and .STU files, which must correspond to the appropriate settings in the .CSV file, are specific to each site and will be provided by Wonderware. See the section titled “Creating a .CSV File” for more information. Step 5 – Configuring the Read/Write Beeps (Optional) Two tabs, “Read/Write Beep” and “Completion Beep,” allow the user to set the pitch and duration of the beeps that indicate a successful or failed interrogation. Invensys Systems, Inc. Page 13 of 19 Last revised: October 3, 2008 Release 3.2.2
  • 14. Confidential & Proprietary Figure 1.7 Configuration - Read/Write Beep Tab Each tab contains settings for a successful, and failed, operation. Refer to the above example for both the Read/Write Beep and Completion Beep tabs.  Number of Beeps – Indicates the number of times the tone produced by the specified pitch and length will sound.  Pitch (Hz) – Sets the pitch of the tone in Hertz.  Length of beep (msec) – Sets the duration of the tone in milliseconds.  Length of silence (msec) – The duration of the pause that occurs before the tone repeats (if Number of Beeps is two or greater).  Check the Enable box to enable the beep, or uncheck it to disable it.  Click the Sound Beep button to test the settings. Invensys Systems, Inc. Page 14 of 19 Last revised: October 3, 2008 Release 3.2.2
  • 15. Confidential & Proprietary Creating a .CSV File A .CSV file is a “comma-separated value” spreadsheet created from rows of data in the same format as the requested information on the RFID tag. The data is placed into the spreadsheet across rows in relation to the data on the formatted tag. Step 1 – Locating the Example .CSV File An example .CSV file, which can be used as a starting point to creating your own .CSV file, is provided in the directory to which the RFID software was installed.  If the Serial version of the Data Loader was installed, the sample file is named “RFID List Sample.csv” and is located by default in “C:Program FilesWonderwareIntelaTracRFID134K”  If the USB version of the Data Loader was installed, the sample file is named “User.csv “ and is located by default in “C:Program FilesWonderwareIntelaTracSRM1” Begin by opening this file with a spreadsheet application. Step 2 – Setting the .STO and .STU within the .CSV File Line 2 and 3 of the spreadsheet contain the .STO and .STU types. Change the corresponding .STO and .STU file numbers assigned to you by Wonderware. Figure 1.8 .STO and .STU File Definitions within a .CSV File Step 3 – Populating the .CSV File Populate your .CSV file with the necessary asset information. Invensys Systems, Inc. Page 15 of 19 Last revised: October 3, 2008 Release 3.2.2
  • 16. Confidential & Proprietary Figure 1.9 Asset Location within a .CSV File Loading RFID Tags Step 1 – Opening the .CSV File Launch the RFID Data Loader, then select File  Open from the menu bar. Figure 1.10 Opening a .CSV File in the Data Loader Browse to the proper .CSV file using the provided “Open” window: Invensys Systems, Inc. Page 16 of 19 Last revised: October 3, 2008 Release 3.2.2
  • 17. Confidential & Proprietary Figure 1.11 Selecting the .CSV File in the “Open” Window Click “Open” when the proper .CSV file is highlighted, as per the example. NOTES:  Ensure that the .CSV file is not open in another application, such as Excel. If the .CSV is still open, you may receive a “Sharing Violation” error. If this happens, close the application accessing the .CSV file and try again.  The RFID reader / writer must be configured and recognized by the RFID Data Loader before a .CSV file will open. The application should populate with the asset data entered in the .CSV file, as with the example below: Figure 1.12 Loaded .CSV Display Invensys Systems, Inc. Page 17 of 19 Last revised: October 3, 2008 Release 3.2.2
  • 18. Confidential & Proprietary Step 2 – Loading Tags Follow the steps below to load the tag 1) Place an RFID tag on the RFID paddle (or within 3-6 inches) 2) Highlight the desired row of data to be loaded on the tag. TIP: The most efficient way to write a long list of assets to RFID tags is to start by writing the first-listed Asset; then, use the Next button ( ) followed by the Write button ( ) until all Assets are written. 3) Either select Edit  Write Tag or click the Write button ( ). 4) After a succession of beeps (if configured) the task line message will read “Data successfully written to tag.” The tag has been loaded and test read and is ready for placement on the associated asset. 5) Repeat as necessary until all tags are written. Tip: Sorting / Searching Columns Sorting and Searching functions are provided in order to make RFID tag loading easier for the user. To access either feature, left-click the column to sort or in which to search. The following menu will appear: Figure 1.13 Column Sort / Find Menu  Select “Sort Column” to sort this column ascending (alphabetical or numerical, depending on the type of data present in the column): Invensys Systems, Inc.
