Deploy configuration via Wired Upload with BALTECH Uploader

For this deployment method, you connect the reader to a computer, e.g. via USB, and upload the configuration via BALTECH Uploader.

Equipment & requirements

  • Laptop with any version of BALTECH Uploader
    If you haven't installed it yet, you can download it here as part of BALTECH ToolSuite.
  • USB cable
  • Deployable configuration file, exported in BEC2 or BEC format
  • Any reader firmware version

Perform Wired Upload

  1. Connect the reader to your computer.

    I have an Ethernet reader.

    To work with BALTECH tools, an Ethernet reader must be unconfigured, or required permissions must be granted in PKI Authentication and Encryption settings.

  2. Open BALTECH Uploader.

  3. Click Browse... in the top right and select the configuration file in BEC2 or BEC format.

    My configuration consists of several files.

    In this case, first deploy the file with the host interface configuration, and afterwards the file with RFID interface configuration (i.e. the configuration for the card type). If you do it the other way round, the reader won't accept the host interface configuration.

  4. Click Start Wired Upload.

  5. Click Start Upload.

The configuration is now uploaded and installed on the reader. Once the process is completed, disconnect the reader and continue with the next if needed.

Automate this process

To automate deployment, you can invoke Uploader from your own application or script.

Integration in ACCESS200 installation workflow

Implement wired upload yourself

Alternatively, you can implement wired upload via USB or RS-232/UART yourself, e.g. to integrate the upload into your own application.
