How to setup and use a SpringPark as a SmartReader over TCP

The aim of this tutorial is to configure a SpringPark as a Network SmartReader. The SpringPark in this configuration acts as a TCP server (default factory port is 4000) and sends its tags to the client connected to this port.

For this howto, we will assume that:

  • your SpringPark is using a default (from factory) configuration.
  • you have some networking basis.

Our SpringPark will output tag information using the SCRDR format (cf. SCRDR Protocol).

SpringCard FunkyGate-IP/RDR is a network-attached wall smart reader, targetting physical Access Control and adopted by modern office buildings, airports, sensitive areas.

The communication uses a custom client/server protocol, designed for reliability, security and speed.
