SECTION 1. FEATURES AND SPECIFICATIONS
The Model MT-211232, 2-Track, RS-232 Swipe Reader, is a compact magnetic stripe card
reader which conforms to standards of ANSI (American National Standards Institute) and ISO
(International Organization for Standardization).
The Reader is compatible with the PC AT/PS-2 series of personal computers or any computer
with an RS-232 interface. A card is read by sliding it, stripe down and facing the LED side,
through the slot either forward or backward.
Two blocks of sixteen switches select the RS-232 communication parameters and the user
protocol. A two-color LED (Light Emitting Diode) indicator on the Reader panel provides the
operator with continuous status of the Reader operations.

MODES OF OPERATION
The two modes of operation are unbuffered and buffered. The switch setting to select the mode
is shown in Section 2. A test of the Inquiry and Release commands is also provided in Section 2.
Unbuffered Mode
In the unbuffered operating mode, data from the Reader is automatically sent to the host without
being requested. When a card is passed through the Reader, data is transmitted immediately and
is not retained.
The Reader does not need to receive commands from the host in order to transmit data.
However, the Reader does respond to an Inquiry Command by sending an ASCII “R”. (See Host
to Reader Commands and Reader to Host Commands in Section 3.) An example of the use of an
Inquiry Command would be to determine whether the power is on at a remote MT-211232.
2
Section 1. Features and Specifications
Buffered Mode
In the buffered operating mode, the Reader stores the card data in a memory buffer and does not
transmit any data to the host until an Inquiry Command is received. Upon receipt of an Inquiry
Command, data is transmitted to the host. If no data is present in the memory buffer, only the
ASCII “R” will be transmitted. Data is not cleared from the memory buffer until a Release
Command is received. The Reader cannot read another card until the buffer is cleared, and the
green LED is lit. Refer to Section 3, Table 3-1, for Buffer Commands I and R.
CONFIGURATION
The Reader, LED Indicator, RJ11 Jack, pin numbers for the 9-pin connector, and the Power
Adapter are shown in Figure 1-2.

ADAPTER CABLE PIN LISTS
When using a cable with control signals, switch B7 and B8 must be set to off. The Reader will
not be in the ready mode unless the PC is ready to accept the data. The PC can check to see if
the Reader is active. Tables 2-2 and 2-3 describe the cables with control signals.
When using a cable without control signals, switch B7 and B8 must be set to on. Unless error
conditions exist, the Reader is ready to read cards at all times. The Reader does not check to see
if the PC is ready to accept data. Tables 2-4 and 2-5 describe the cables with control signals.

For standard 110 volt AC operation, the MT-211232 must be powered by the 9 volt DC adapter
supplied with the unit. For 220 volt operation, a 220 volt/AC 9volt DC conversion adapter
(suitable for international use), part number 64300065, must be provided instead of the 9 volt
adapter supplied.
For users who wish to supply their own power supply, requirements are:
Output Voltage 7.5 to 15 VDC, filtered @ 300 mA, regulated or unregulated, to a 3.5 mm Mono
Plug, positive to tip, negative to shank.
SWITCH SETTINGS
There are two blocks of switches; they are labeled A and B. The blocks are located on the
bottom of the Reader. Each switch block contains eight switches. Figure 2-4 shows the
switches and the ON/OFF positions. The switches settings shown in the illustration are not
necessarily the default settings. Ensure power is off before setting the switches to ensure the
switches are properly loaded.

READER INSTALLATION
Install the Reader as follows:
1.
Connect the serial cable from the Reader to the adapter cable and the adapter cable to the
PC serial port.
2.
Turn on power to the computer.
3.
Open Procomm, HyperTerminal (described below), or other communication program.
4.
Connect the power adapter 3.5 mm Mono plug to the Reader jack, and plug the adapter
into a 120 VAC wall socket. The green LED on the Reader should light; if it does not,
recheck the cable connections, check switches B7 and B8, and if necessary, notify
technical personnel.
5.
Ensure the switch settings on the Reader match those on the PC communications port. If,
for example, the values set in the Reader switches are baud rate 9600, parity Even, 7 data
bits, and 1 stop bit, the PC port should match these values (see HyperTerminal Setup
below).
14
Section 2. Installation
6.
Swipe a card through the Reader.
7.
If the green LED goes out momentarily, then goes ON, the Reader is working and
properly connected; proceed to the next step. If the LED comes on red momentarily,
there is an error. The card was swiped incorrectly, or the unit is not working, or is not
properly connected. Check the cabling, reset the unit by disconnecting and connecting
the power plug, try another card, and call technical support if there is still an error.
8.
If there were no errors during installation, test the red light by swiping the card
approximately half way. The Red LED should go ON momentarily (and an "E" should
appear on the screen, depending on the program).
9.
Swipe another card. If the green LED goes OFF, then ON, the unit is ready for operation.
HyperTerminal Setup and Test
Any RS-232 communication program can be used to check the communication between the
Reader and the PC. The Windows 95 HyperTerminal program is used here. Setup the program
as follows:

beginning of Track 2. The “?” represents the end of a Track.
TEST OF INQUIRY AND RELEASE COMMANDS
Use the HyperTerminal setup to test the Inquiry and Release Commands. Place the Reader in the
buffered mode by setting Switch B-2 in the ON position. Perform the following steps.
1.
Unplug and plug in the power plug to reset the Reader.
2.
With the green LED on, swipe a card. The LED should go off.
3.
Press the Esc key, then capital I (Ensure capital letters are used because the program is
case sensitive). The screen display should be similar to the one above.
4.
Each time the Esc and I keys are pressed, the display will appear.
5.
To Clear the buffer, press the Esc key then capital R. The LED should go on (Green),
and nothing else will appear on the Screen.
6.
Press Esc and I again and an "R" will appear on the screen.
Reset Switch B2 to the OFF position if the unbuffered mode is to be used.

SECTION 3. OPERATION
Included in this section are Indicators, Card Read, Reader to Host Message Format, Host to
Reader Commands, a timing diagram of transmission, and the top assembly drawing of the
Reader.
INDICATORS
A card may be swiped through the Reader slot when the green LED is lit. The magnetic stripe
must face toward the front (the side with the LED and arrows) and may be swiped from either
direction.
In the unbuffered mode (SWB2 OFF), the green LED will go out momentarily when a properly
encoded card is swiped through the Reader. The green LED will reappear when all valid
information is transmitted to the computer and the Reader is ready to accept another card. In the
buffered mode (SWB2 ON), when a card is swiped, the green LED will go off and remain off
until a Release Command is received (See Buffer Mode Commands below).
The red LED goes ON momentarily when an error occurs during a card read. If the unit was
installed correctly, the error will probably be caused by not swiping the card correctly or the
problem may be with the encoding on the card. Swipe the card again or try another card.

HOST TO READER COMMANDS
All commands transmitted from the host to the Reader must be preceded by an ASCII “Escape”
<ESC> character. Characters that precede or follow the command sequence will not affect the
Reader’s command interpretation. All ASCII characters must be transmitted in UPPER CASE
(for example, ASCII “I” and “R”).
Buffer Mode Commands
Commands used in the buffer mode are described in Table 3-1.

MT-211 RS-232 Swipe Reader, 1 or 2 Tracks
Table 3-1. Buffer Commands I and R
Switch B2
Command
Description
ON
<ESC> “I “
Inquiry Command: In the buffered mode,
requests the Reader to Transmit data, or “E”
for error, or “R” for empty buffer. In the
unbuffered mode transmits an ASCII “R”.
ON
<ESC> “R”
Release Command: In the buffered mode,
requests the Reader to clear the memory
buffer of any data present. This command
has no effect in the unbuffered mode.
TIMING
Transmission timing is shown in Figure 3-3. Each ASCII character is transmitted with 1 start
bit, 7 data bits, 1 parity bit, and 1 stop bit. Logic levels conform to standard RS-232 levels; logic
levels are “true” or “1” if the level is low. The levels are quiescently low.

PROGRAMMING
The following programming information applies when a PINPad is connected to the Swipe
Reader. Disconnect power from the Reader. Connect the PINPad to the Reader. Apply power
to the Reader.
• Host to PINPad commands must be in the following format:
(STX) + (PINPad command) + (ETX)
These entries must be in rapid succession; they cannot be hand keyed in. (See the MSDOS Edit Program below.)
21
MT-211 RS-232 Swipe Reader, 1 or 2 Tracks
• If there is no response when the PINPad button is pressed, perform the steps below.
• If the Reader is set in the buffered operating mode and the card data is present in the memory
buffer, the Reader will not accept a PINPad command from the Host.
• Switch settings for card data format (STX, ETX, ESC, or CR) do not affect PINPad data.
MS-DOS Edit Program
Commands for PINPads cannot be hand-keyed in. This program may be used to enter
Commands. Perform the following steps:
From Windows/95/98/2000/XP, Click on Start, highlight Programs, and the MS-Dos Prompt/
1. Install a floppy disk in drive A.
2. At the command line type edit <Enter>
C:\WINDOWS>edit <Enter>
3. An empty window will appear. To enter the initialize command, <STX>g<ETX>, type
the following: Ctrl-b, then g, then Ctrl-p, then Ctrl-c. Since the Ctrl-c has a different
meaning for the editor, the Ctrl-p allows the Ctrl-c to be entered into the string, and the
Ctrl-p does not actually appear in the final string. Other commands may also be used, but
this sequence will test the PINPad. On the screen there will be three characters: a happy
face, the letter g, and a heart. In the text file these will appear as a block, the letter g, and
another block (note that the letter g and any other letters, must be lower case).
4. Click on File, then Save As. Name the drive & file; use the extension of .txt, (for example,
a:\cmdg.txt). Click ok.
5. Edit the g into an a and repeat step 4 (with a new name: cmda.txt).
6. Edit the a into a b and repeat step 4 (with a new name cmdb.txt).
7. Edit the b into a h and repeat step 4 (with a new name: cmdh.txt).
8. You should have 4 separate files on the floppy (cmdg.txt; cmda.txt; cmdb.txt & cmdh.txt)
9. To leave the Editor, select File, then Exit. At the DOS prompt type exit <Enter>.
