Before you go and Press the Red ON/OFF Button lets make sure of a couple of things.

  1. Ensure that the Data Mode Switch (insert picture) is in the “UP” position.
  2. Plug your Ethernet cable into the reader and your computer (Figure 1). (NB: you do not require the crossover adaptor)
  3. Make sure your timing computer is on.

Power on the reader by holding down the power button for about 3 seconds. The battery voltage indicator and the Status Display will light up. The reader will perform its mat tuning procedure and emit two quick beeps when completed. You can also manually tune the antennas by pushing the Tune button on the reader.

Pass a test tag over the mat and look for an increase in the “Tags” counter at the bottom of the reader’s screen.

The reader is also turned off by holding down the power button for 3 seconds. All indicators on the reader’s front panel should go off.
