Set Wireless Mode BLE HID
You set idChamp® NF4x, RS3x, RS4x, DX1x RFID-NFC reader/writer wireless modes are set using the yACK BLE app.
IMPORTANT – Only set NF4x Direct Mode model reader in HID Keyboard (KB) Mode.
When you set the NF4x Smart Mode model to KB mode, it will not work. NF4x Smart Mode reader only works in BLE mode.
Connect via BLE by default, this is the highest performance mode for the readers. Using an app like SerialMagic Keys, iScanBrowser, Cloud-In-Hand Mobile Grid, stratus-io Time and Attendance. For 3rd party apps you get the same results as these apps using the SDM (Serial Device Manager) libraries. All these methods use the reader in the high-performance BLE mode.
When you don’t need high performance, you can use wireless HID keyboard mode to connect to the host. 3rd o app is needed for keyboard mode. It’s important to note your N4Fx, and RS4x must have ‘Direct Mode Firmware’ (DMF) installed in order to use HID mode. DMF is only available at the time of purchase, contact serialio.com for details.
To change wireless mode to HID mode for iOS/MacOS or HID mode for Windows 10, use the “BT HID Win10” option.
