INTRODUCTION
CDI is a highly efficient production software program which allows data files to
personalize cards.
Embossing
CDI software supports Standard Gothic (A-Z )-9 ‘/-.,), Farrington 7B (0-9) and other
non-standard embossing characters (e.g. tilde N, Russian, Katakana).
Magnetic Stripe Encoding
CDI software supports the following magnetic stripe encoding formats:




IATA
ABA
TTS
NTT3 (J)
The software also supports the following options selected by the user:


switching between high coercivity and low coercivity.
switching between front and rear encoding (internal Smart Card module only)
Indent Printing
CDI software supports MasterCard™ indent (0-9), OCR-B1 (0-9), OCR-A1 (0-9) and
Visa Electron™ character set (OCB-B1 A-Z 0-9., / OCR-B4 0-9 /).
Graphics Printing
CDI software supports the ability to print monochrome and color graphic logos/pictures.
Smart Card Personalization
CDI software provides an easy way to use environment for developing smart card
applications. A driver provides compatibility with T=0 and T=1 cards. It also provides the
capability of reading information from the smart card and returns the results to the
application and with the ability to personalize this information. Up to 4 key readers may
be used (additional COM ports may be needed).
Smart Card Personalization with Datacard® APM/SCS interface
Custom Desktop Issuance software enables to use Syntera® Customization Suite
Software and Datacard® Affina Personalization Manager, Affina Profiles and Scripting,
Affina Data Preparation softwares, and all Datacard® Affina products.
Security
Multi-level security is provided so the supervisor can choose which access option
each user can control.
Audit Trail
The status of each card is traced for cards completed or cards rejected.

3.1- LOGGING IN
The following window will appear when the CDI program is launched. For first time
users, enter ADMIN in the dialog box under “Enter Your User Name.” Enter ADMIN in the
dialog box under “Enter Your Password.” To change passwords see User/Password.
When using CDI, you must perform the setup operations before starting production.
Here is the logical order for using CDI for the first time:

Define the data setup (see page 9)

Define the card setup (see page 13)

Define the machine setup (see page 16)

Define the audit setup (see page 20)

To create a job setup, you must first perform the four basic setup functions.

Warning: You cannot delete a setup if it is used to define another setup. You must first
delete the setups that include other setups to be deleted.

Define the job setup (see page 21)

Load Data (see page 22)

Make Cards (see page 24)

3.2- DATA SETUP
Select any item in the Data Setup window for information.

To create a new Data setup, click the Add button.

Optionally modify the description of the Data setup.

Optional: Enter a File ID Record. The FIR is a special record allowing information to be
transferred to the operator and does not affect production.

When Delete Source File is checked input file will be deleted after being loaded. This is
a security option to avoid producing the same cards twice by loading the same data
twice

Select Separation Method for each record.

Select Computed Data DLL and select a stored DLL name. This DLL computes the data
from the input file during the Load Data operation.

Open a Sample file

Add Fields (Data, Calculated or Audit Variable).

DLL_ERROR_A: error code sent by dll
AUDIT_A1: audit field 1
AUDIT_A2: audit field 2
Etc.
NB: if you have more than one chip application, you can define separate audit fields for each
application using: ACCEPT_CODE_B, DLL_ERROR_B, AUDIT_B1, AUDIT_B2, etc.

first margin second margin
In this sample, we emboss Field_1 to Field_5 on the front of the card.
DC450 is a dual margin printer, which implies for CDI Card Setup:
 The left position of first created emboss field defines the first margin.
 The left position of second created emboss field defines the second margin.
 All the other emboss fields follow the second margin (1000 in this sample),
whatever their left position in the Card Setup is. (If you really want to position
the fields farther on the right, you have to pad them with spaces, e.g. using
composite fields in the Data Setup.)
Same rule applies for indent fields on the back of the card.
(This means for example that if a back indent field is created before the front
embossing fields, then the back indent field will define the first margin.)

7 Winlec to CDI migration
You can easily migrate your Winlec setups and application to CDI, and use them the
same way on CDI.
To do so, install CDI (please refer to chapter 2 of this document), then copy your
Winlec Rserved folder (usually installed under C:\Winlec) in your CDI installation folder (it will
replace the current one). Then copy your applications from C:\Winlec\Dll folder to C:\CDI\Dll.
Please note you will have to reload Winlec jobs on CDI so that you can use them.
