Then on “Protocol” choose “1K-Xmodem”, Then press “OK”
f.
Then the downloading process will start:
g. After finishing downloading enter command AT+CFUN=1 to restart modem
h. After restarting enter command AT+WOPEN=1 to start the VAF program.
i. Enter one VAF AT command to verify :
Command
AT+SMSAT?
Expected response
+SMSAT : 0,000000
OK
Now the Fargo Maestro Value added Feature installation has been done. You can follow other
chapters to use the features.
Not all Fargo Maestro can have the Value-added feature installed, so you need to check if your
Fargo Maestro before installation first.

3. AUTO TCP/UDP CONNECTION (Fargo Maestro 100 only)
The Auto TCP/UDP connection feature is defined for accessing serial devices over the Internet.
Fargo Maestro can be configured that after power up it will connect to a remote TCP/UDP socket
(client mode) or to wait for the TCP/UDP socket connection request from remote peer (server
mode).
If the socket connection is unsuccessful or disconnected it will repeat the connection request and
back to waiting stage. This make remote peer can access serial device connected to Fargo
Maestro.

4. REMOTE AT COMMAND BY SMS
This feature is to control the modem to interpret AT command from incoming SMS, executing it,
and return the result to sender by SMS.
The user can enable the modem to receive AT command by incoming SMS. See following about
AT+SMSAT command.
4.1 Description of the Operation
Step 1 : send AT command
to modem by SMS
000000AT+CSQ
Step 2 : modem execute and
return response by SMS
+CSQ: 17,0 OK
1. When enabled, the modem will treat the incoming SMS as a source of AT command only if
all of the following conditions (a,b and c) are fulfilled :
a. The content of SMS sent to the modem is using standard 7-bit GSM data decoding scheme,
b. The first 6 characters of the SMS content matches the <key> parameter set by AT+SMSAT
command, (default key is “000000”)
c. The 7th and 8th characters of the SMS content is “AT” (in capital letters)
2. If SMSAT is enabled , the modem will read each incoming SMS, if the conditions mentioned in 1
are matched the message will be executed, even it is an invalid AT command
3. When using SMSAT feature, only +CNMI:x,1,x,x,x setting could be used (i.e. incoming message
will be stored in SIM card). If the incoming SMS is treated as with AT command inside, the SMS
will be deleted after execution. If not the modem will leave it in SIM, just like normal SMS.
4. The maximum length of the AT command is limited by length of SMS, i.e. 160-6 = 154 characters
5. When the SMS AT command is executed , all intermediate and final responses will be buffered
recorded, then return to the sender’s phone number in one single SMS.
6. If response(s) of the AT command is(are) more than 160 characters, only the first 160 characters
will be returned.
7. In case the modem cannot get terminal response within 26 seconds, the modem will then abort
the command, and return intermediate responses (if present).
8. If SMSAT feature is enabled all incoming SMS, either with valid AT command or not, will be
erased. This is to prevent SIM card memory from fully filled, such the modem will not receive
new SMS.

Defined Values:
<mode>
0 disable remote AT command by SMS
1 enable remote AT command by SMS
<key>
A 6-digit numeric character key from 000000 to 999999. Only incoming SMS with the first 6
characters matching with this key will be treated as a valid source of remote AT command.
4.3 Limitation and caution to be taken when using remote AT command
This feature will not ‘judge’ the result of executing the command, so care has to be taken not to
enter improper command that make the modem becoming out of control:
1. Never send ‘interactive’ AT command by SMS, e.g. AT+CMGS=….
This feature cannot return the prompt to the sender for second input
2. Always wait for the return SMS with AT responses before you send another SMS AT command.
3. Currently commands created by OpneAT (e.g. AT+SMSAT) cannot be sent by SMS.
Confidential, the whole present document is the sole property of Fargo Telecom (Asia) Ltd.
15
4. It could be in some case (e.g. network failure) the modem cannot return response SMS. The
modem will try sending response SMS for three times max. If still not successful it will abort.
5. Always think twice before you send AT command by SMS. For example if you send AT+CPOF it
will turn off the modem, and you need to go to access the modem to reset it.

5. I/O TRIGGERED AT COMMAND
This feature making use of the Fargo Maestro Input/Output port as a sensor. If the signal to the port
match the pre-defined condition a stored AT command will be executed.
User can use AT+IOAT command to set the condition and store AT command to be executed.
5.1 Description of the operation
I/O port
Wiring Diagram :
1. When the I/O port is connected to high 3V signal,
Switch closed : logic level high
Switch opened : logic level low.
2. The switch can be placed as a triggering device, e.g. to detect door opening.
3. According to the setting of AT+IOAT command, the stored AT command will be executed either
I/O signal from high to low, or from low to high :
When set as low-to-high triggering:
Start counting time when
a low to high signal
changed detected
when period of high signal
reach the Threshold value
the AT command will be
executed

<Threshold>
Time required for the detected state to trigger the AT command exestuation. Unit is in
millisecond.
Valid value from 1 to 50 (0.1 sec to 5 sec). Refer to the above timing diagram in section 5.1.
<cmd>
AT command to be executed when the I/O port is triggered successfully. The length of the
command is limited to 128 characters. See section 5.3 for more details.
5.3 Notes and cautions to be taken when using I/O triggered AT command
1. The I/O port is limited to drain current 10mA max. Never give too high input voltage to the I/O
port or the modem will be damaged.
2. Use only cable/metal contact designed for Molex MicroFit™ connector. Using incompatible
connector will damage the modem. Contact your dealer or FargoTelecom if you need wire for the
I/O port connection.
3. The modem will NOT check the command you entered to the <cmd> field. It will be executed
even it is not a valid AT command (or even not an AT command). Check by yourself when you
enter the command.
4. When triggered, the command will be executed in ‘quiet’ mode, i.e. without any response like
“OK” or “ERROR” will be sent to external application.
5. Do not enter “interactive” AT command (e.g. AT+CMGS=…), otherwise when the command is
executed, the modem will in a state of waiting further input, not to do other jobs.
6. With this feature enabled user cannot control the I/O port by other AT commands anymore.
7. Due to product limitation the modem cannot detect switching action with period less than 100ms.
If the switch’s open/close action is done in less than 100ms this feature will not be able to detect
accurately.
