5 1 C HAPTER 1 Introduction The RF Database Manager software lends itself to real-time data exchange, by updating and/or editing database on the host computer. Working with the CipherLAB RF data collection terminals, it can easily create or link to a back-end database according to the pre-defined properties of lookup file/s. Sparing your time from the tedious work of writing codes, the RFDBManager gets your data linked to a number of legacy OLE database easily. Note: The properties of lookup file/s must be defined through the RF Application Generator in advance. In This Chapter How it works... 2 Typographical Conventions... 3 Revision History... 3
6 2 Using RFDBManager (433 MHz/2.4 GHz) User's Guide How it works... Options of RF specifications include 433 MHz and 2.4 GHz, depending on your application requirements.

9 5 C HAPTER 2 The RFDBManager Interface This chapter describes the main window and interface elements you need to get familiar with before getting started. In This Chapter Main Window... 6 Menu Bar... 7 Main Toolbar RF Reading Dialogue Editing Toolbar Device Bar Database Tab Status Bar... 17
10 6 Using RFDBManager (433 MHz/2.4 GHz) User's Guide Main Window The RFDBManager's main window has menus and toolbars on the top, and, the rest of the window displays available database and/or RF reading section. Database When you click on the Database tab, it displays in two panes - title of data sheet on the left and its content on the right. It can display up to three data sheets. RF Reading When you click on the RF Reading tab, it simply displays data received. Note: The data file tab/s vary with the lookup file attributes. (1) The Database tab will be brought up when the application template contains a form that makes reference to lookup file/s. (2) The RF Reading tab will be brought up when the application template contains a form that doesn't make reference to lookup file/s.
11 Chapter 2 The RFDBManager Interface 7 Menu Bar The Menu Bar contains a number of menus that specify which task you want the system to perform. Each menu contains a list of commands and sometimes sub-menus. Some of the options carry out commands immediately, and others display a window so that you can enter additional information. If an option is followed by [...], it will display a window. Otherwise, the command is carried out immediately. File Menu Command Open ATF Open Database RF Reading Close: (ATF file name) To Do... Open an existing application template file that was created by the RF Application Generator. ATF refers to "Application Template File". If the database has been successfully created earlier, you can directly open it without having to open the application template first. When the previously opened template includes RF Reading only, the command is Open RF Reading. When it includes Database or Database + RF reading, the command is Open Database. Close the current application template file.
12 8 Using RFDBManager (433 MHz/2.4 GHz) User's Guide Convert Data Data Links Save As Print Preferences Exit Convert the source text data of a lookup file to database file. It allows up to three lookup files. Make sure that all required lookup files have been converted to database completely. If the date/time stamps in the ATF have been defined, a dialog box will prompt to confirm whether the system is to generate the date/time stamp for the records automatically. It supports a variety of database types. Configure the Data Link properties and link to any legacy back-end database. Save the current database to a new file either in database format (*.mdb) or in text format (*.txt). Print out data from the current database. Configure custom settings for security concerns and others. Close the RF Database Manager program. RF Link Menu The RF terminal/s must connect to the host computer through the Base Station (master or standalone). After a careful site survey, you may decide to have a number of base stations to form your RF network. In this case, the base station directly being connected to the host computer is called "Master"; the others are "Slave". Command Connect Disconnect Properties To Do... Enable the RS-232 connection between PC and the Base Station, so that the terminal/s can be connected. Disable the RS-232 connection between PC and the Base Station, so that the terminal/s are disconnected. Configure the COM port settings for the connection between the PC and the Base Station. Default settings: COM 1, bps, no flow control. Note: The number of the symbolic icons on the Device Bar reveals how many devices are currently connected.
13 Chapter 2 The RFDBManager Interface 9 Configure Menu For more information, go to Configuration (on page 47) in the Demonstration Chapter. Command Base Station's ID Base Station's Properties To Do... Configure the Base Station's ID. Configure the Base Station's properties. Help Menu Command About ATF File's Properties About RF Database Manager To Do... Show properties of the application template file. Show information about the RF Database Manager program.

23 19 C HAPTER 3 Demonstration This chapter gives more information on how to use the RFDBManager in your application. In This Chapter Execute Program General Application Window Start with Open ATF Start with Open Database Set up Connection Configuration Editing Save As Print Execute Program 1 Execute the RF Database Manager program. 2 The version and copyright information pops up. Click [OK] to proceed. 3 The application window pops up.
24 20 Using RFDBManager (433 MHz/2.4 GHz) User's Guide General Application Window In this stage, available functions are accessible in the Main Toolbar. For the same function, you may click the drop-down menu from the Menu Bar as well. Start with Open ATF (on page 20): Click [File] and choose [Open ATF] to open the application template file. Start with Open Database (on page 45): Click [File] and choose [Open Database] to open the previously created database. Click [Connect] to open the COM port. Click [Exit] to end the program. Note: The application template file (ATF) has to be defined properly with the Application Generator before you can make use of it with the RF Database Manager. Start with Open ATF 1 Click [Open ATF] to start with a new application template file.
25 Chapter 3 Demonstration 21 2 The following window pops up for specifying file path. When the file is located, click [Open]. 3 Now the application window is as shown below. If the application template file (ATF) includes a form that specifies none for its lookup properties, the RF Reading dialog box (on page 12) will appear.
26 22 Using RFDBManager (433 MHz/2.4 GHz) User's Guide 4 Proceed to click [Convert Data] to import text file, or click [Data Link](on page 25) for access to a custom database Convert Data 1 Click [Convert Data] to convert lookup text file into data sheet. Because up to three lookup files are allowed in the application template, you'll have to make sure all of them are imported to our database here. 2 The following window pops up for specifying file path. When the file is located, click [Open].
27 Chapter 3 Demonstration 23 3 The application template may specify that the lookup file's data fields include date or time attribute. For the system to generate date and/or time stamp for each record, click Yes. If the date and/or time stamp has been joined to the text file, simply click No to proceed. If the text file includes no date and/or time stamp, an error message is generated when you click No. Note: The Convert Data button won't go away as long as there is more data (another lookup file) needs conversion. At last, the application window shows data records in the data file tab (Database tab).
28 24 Using RFDBManager (433 MHz/2.4 GHz) User's Guide Refer to ATF You may click [Help] on the Menu Bar and select [About ATF File's Properties] to view the settings of the template file. It reveals the relationship between the application template and the RF Database Manager. In the Application Generator's template: In the RF Database Manager: 1st lookup file Convert Data > data sheet #1 2nd lookup file Convert Data > data sheet #2 3rd lookup file Convert Data > data sheet #3 Note: The ATF's properties cannot be changed here.
