Setting Up a New Reader
Step 2: Using the Web UI
1. Connect the Impinj R700 via ethernet to your network or computer. If connecting directly to your computer, be sure to set your network to obtain IP addresses automatically.
Once logged in, you should see the reader's Web UI screen shown below. Note: If your reader's web UI does not look like this, it is probably on the 7.x firmware. Please see the archived version of this article to perform the initial firmware update. Then it should look like the screen shown below.
Let's break down each section of the Web UI and see why it is important:
- This section shows the status and information about the reader, including reader uptime, internal clock time, and IP addresses.
- The Change Interface button allows you to switch between the default IoT Device Interface and the legacy LLRP Interface. For more information about these interfaces, please see this FAQ or the IOT Device Interface guide.
- The Change Password button allows you to change the password you use to access this webpage.
- The Reboot button allows you to reboot the reader.
- Reader Time - This is the reader's internal time. If accurate timestamps are important to you, you'll want to verify that this is correct. If you want to change the time, please see step # 35 of this article.
You can enable or disable your antenna hub here if you have one.
Firmware and CAP (Custom Application Program)
- Firmware Version - This line lists your reader's current firmware version.
- Updating your firmware - To update your firmware, simply drag and drop the .upg file onto the outlined box. To obtain the current firmware, please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Primary CAP version - This is the version of your custom program if you have one installed.
Pins 1-3 - This tells the reader to send a high or low (on or off) signal to these pins, triggering their connected devices. This can be used for testing purposes.
