ALIEN RFID Integration to SAP

162 Views Last edit Nov 15 at 07:39 AM 3 rev

Hi Team of experts,

Currently we send a single unix command from cardex which initiates a read from the reader and returns the list of RFID tags it reads. Cardex then compares the list of returned tag values in Hexadecimal (which contains the bag id encoded when we printed the label) with the values stored in Cardex for that z-control and reports any differences or if all matches it allows closure of the kit

Here is the line of unix code in Cardex, Pleasse note ':RFID.READER:' gets replaced with the RFID reader in the user profile which resolves to the IP address of the reader

!/usr/bin/curl -su "alien:password" "http:// ':RFID.READER:' /cgi-bin/cmd.cgi?gui=off&cmd=T" | /bin/grep Tag | /usr/bin/cut -f1 -d,

Here is the information returned to Cardex from the above command/reader

Tag:3230 3230 5A31 3536 3234 2E58 3732 3337

This is converted from HEX

For instance the first tag

3230 3230 5A31 3536 3234 2E54 3532 3639 converted to text = 2020Z15624.T5269

Breaking that down 2020Z15624 is the z-control number and T5269 is the BAGID in Cardex.

Now we are removing our Cardex Interface and want to integrate ALIEN RFID device to SAP system for the same information in SAP tables.

Please help us with the required setup in SAP to achieve the same.

thanks,

Surya
