Testing the HID Omnikey 5122 dual (contact / contactless) encoder

While we're on the subject, I have another one for the HID Omnikey 5122 (below) ?


Testing the HID Omnikey 5122 dual (contact / contactless) encoder;


Work backwards from the printer.


Step 1;


Does the PC see the encoder(s)?  (Yes / No)

From Control Panel -> Device Manager expand the Smart card readers entry;



Assuming Yes, and it’s an HID Omnikey 51xx dual encoder that is fitted;

Step 2;

Download and install HID’s Omnikey Workbench.

The latest version is V2.2 and can be downloaded from here;




Does that see the encoder(s)?





Assuming the encoders are listed in the Omnikey Workbench;


Step 3;


Select the contactless encoder (for contact chip encoding, choose the top encoder, without CL);





Load the Mifare card into the contactless encoding position here;


Printer Properties -> Encoding;




Look on the HID Omnikey Workbench.
 Does it see the card?



Is there an answer to reset (ATR)?
