Setting the Hand-held Reader Writer
•Settings
The following settings are used to operate the Hand-held Reader Writer.
•Serial communications parameters (data transfer speed, parity check, stop bits).
These settings can be changed by using a setting command from the host device. To operate the
Hand-held Reader Writer with the new setting, the power must be turned OFF then ON again, or the
ABORT command must be used.
Serial Communications Parameters
The following are the settings related to serial communications. Use the COMMUNICATIONS CONDITIONS SETTING (TR) command.

Contents
2400, 4,800, 9,600 (see note), 19,200, 38,400

No*, Yes
Note: Items marked by an asterisk (*) are set as the default when shipped from the factory.
•Reading the Settings
Use the SET INFORMATION READ (UL) command to read the settings of the Hand-held Reader
Writer. The information read by the SET INFORMATION READ command is set in the backup memory
of the Hand-held Reader Writer. For this reason, care must be taken when the power is first turned ON
after the settings have been changed because the operational settings of the Hand-held Reader Writer
will be different.
•Initializing the Settings
A setting command is used to set the Hand-held Reader Writer but if the communications parameters
are not known or if the setting contents are damaged, it is possible that communications will no longer
be possible with the host device. If this occurs, press both the reset button and the activate switch
when turning ON the power. This will return all settings to the defaults set when the Hand-held Reader
Writer was shipped from the factory, allowing communications with the host device again.

Auto Command OFF Function
If communications with the Data Carrier do not begin within one minute after an auto command or
button auto command is sent from the host device to the Hand-held Reader Writer after entering the
Data Carrier wait status, the Auto Command OFF function automatically aborts the auto command and
returns a "Data Carrier non-existent" error (error code 72) to the host device. When the Auto
Command OFF function is not used, the auto command will not be aborted even if one minute passes
after entering the Data Carrier wait status.
This function is set using the BASIC FUNCTIONS SETTING (FN) command.

Data Carrier Service Life Detection
The methods used to detect the service life of the Data Carrier depend on the memory type (SRAM or EEPROM).
For SRAM, a battery life check is performed, and for EEPROM, the number of overwrites is monitored.
•SRAM Data Carriers (with Built-in Battery)
Checking If the Battery is Low
Built-in Battery (Not Including V600-D2KR16)
(1)A battery-low check for the Data Carrier can only be performed when special access is made. The
battery-low check is performed by running a fixed current through the internal circuit of the Data
Carrier. If the battery-low check is performed every time access is made, battery power is also
consumed. It is recommended that this be included as a routine check, once a day, when creating
system programs.
data from addresses 0000H to 0001H are read. Execute one of the following commands to perform a

Section 4
Functions
Data Carrier Life after Low Battery Signal Occurs
After a battery-low signal is sent, the Data Carrier can be used for approximately one month in the
normal operating state. The Data Carrier should be replaced, however, as soon as possible.
The SRAM Data Carrier (except the V600-D2KR16) is equipped with a thionyl chloride lithium battery. A characteristic
of the thionyl chloride lithium battery is that the internal resistance of the battery increases when the battery is left
unused for several months. If this occurs and a Data Carrier battery-low check is performed, a low battery response
may be returned regardless of whether battery life still remains. This is a result of the increased resistance within the
battery, and is not due to the battery life expiring. If a Data Carrier has been left for several months after purchase without being used, use the read operation for approx. 10 minutes to activate the battery before use. (Current will flow in the
battery and resistance in the battery will return to normal as a result of activating the battery. The life of the battery will
hardly be affected.)
When using V600-D2KR16 Data Carriers with replaceable batteries, the Data Carrier can be used for
approximately two weeks in the normal operating state. The battery should be replaced, however, as
Data Carrier Section 4
soon as possible.
•EEPROM Data Carrier (without Battery)
The OVERWRITE COUNT CONTROL command (MDS) can determine whether the overwrite count
for the EEPROM Data Carrier has been exceeded. By executing the OVERWRITE COUNT
CONTROL command, the number of overwrites is decremented from the data in the specified
overwrite count control area, and whether the data has exceeded the limits is determined.
The overwrite count control area consists of 3 bytes
from the start address. The decrement value from the
overwrite count is written in this area, and if this value
Area start address
is 0 (00H) an end code 76 will be given as a warning.
Therefore, to enable control of the number of
Upper digit
Middle digit
Lower digit
3 bytes
overwrites, the maximum number of overwrites must
be written to the overwrite count control area
beforehand.
The user-specified number of overwrites can be set to
up to 16,700,000. The number of overwrites in the
specifications for EEPROM Data Carriers, however, is
300,000 overwrites (0493E0H) at 40°C max., so be
sure to set the number of overwrites to 300,000 or
lower.
The number of overwrites is controlled using hexadecimal
values, and can be read using the READ command.
If the control area data is already 0, the control area value will not be refreshed, and only a warning will be
returned as a response. When the refresh count is set as 00H, the count will not be updated, and only an
overwrite count check will be
performed.
Set the start address to between @@@0H and @@@5H or between @@@8H and @@@DH. If the start address is set
between @@@6H and @@@7H or between @@@EH and @@@FH, an address error (error code: 7A hexadecimal) will
be returned as the end code.

Memory Check Function in Data Carrier
A memory check can be made using the DATA CHECK command (MDC/K). A CRC (Cyclic
Redundancy Check) code calculation, overwrite, and comparison are made, using the check block
units specified by the user. The CRC code is calculated from the generated polynomial expression x16
+ x12 + x5 + 1.
The calculation area is the portion of the check

Communications Time
Communications time differs according to the type of Data Carrier memory (SRAM or EEPROM). TAT
(Turn Around Time) and transmission time are displayed as communication times. TAT represents the
total time from when a command is first sent from the host device until a response is received. The
transmission time represents the time required for communications between the Hand-held Reader
Writer and the Data Carrier, not including communications with the host device.
