How to change the FX7500 antenna dwell time via API?

Applicable To

FX7500, FX9600

Resolution / Answer

By default the reader antenna stop trigger (time to switch between the connected antennas) is set to 1000ms, it can be changed to a different value in the SessionOne or PowerSession demo application.

Code sample to change the antenna dwell time via RFID3 API

foreach (ushort u in thisReader.Config.Antennas.AvailableAntennas) {

     Antennas.AntennaRfConfig arf = thisReader.Config.Antennas[u].GetRfConfig();

    // setting stop trigger type to be 'Duration' - in milliseconds

     arf.AntennaStopTriggerConfig.AntennaStopConditionValue = 300; 
     // Example - Setting antenna dwell time to 300 ms.
