Serial Reader Installation within Amadeus platform

The reader address is per default 1. If more than 1 reader must be connected to the controller, set-up the other reader(s) address from 2 to 4 via its Configuration cards.

To communicate with Amadeus, command ‘03 0X 43’ (or ’03 0X 47 for DK26MF) must be sent to the controllers equipped with version from 2013.

(Where X is the reader No., from 1 to 4. See ‘The DDS Serial Reader User Manual’, doc. 07UE012 for details)
