Introduction

The Speedway Revolution reader's Web UI is a very convenient and efficient method for interfacing directly with the reader. Through this interface, the user is able to see relevant reader information at a glance, and is able to perform necessary reader maintenance with minimal interference.

To access the Web UI, a Speedway Revolution reader will need to be connected to your network. To do this, please see the article  Setting Up Your Speedway Revolution Reader.

Once the reader has been set up on the network, navigate a web browser to the connected reader's address, which is in the format "http://speedwayr-xx-xx-xx.local", where xx-xx-xx is the last 6 digits of the reader's MAC address. Alternatively, the reader's IP address can be entered into the web browser in order to access the Web UI. For additional information and troubleshooting for this step, please see the  Troubleshooting for Speedway Revolution Readers article.
