Packing List and Ordering Information Datasheet
  Product Overview  
Traditionally, shop floor data must be collected with a
barcode or RFID device attached to a computer :

● Every workstation needed a computer. The expense of a
computer and all the necessary software is hard to justify for such a simple, dedicated task.
● It's difficult to recognize the data source after the data is sent to the backend server.
● Special provision must be made to deal with networking issues, power failure and other inconveniences.
  IEI eFIAT-100 is simpler and more robust :

● Compact size to save space
● Simple installation interface for convenience of usage and maintenance
● Multiple expansion interfaces are provided, supporting up to four barcode scanners and RFID readers (2 x USB, 1 x RS-232, 1 x PS/2) and capable of transferring at up to 80 bytes/s. Total hardware savings of around 80%.
● All information collected is automatically forwarded to the
backend server with both the terminal IP address and port
number making identification of the data source easy.
  Steps to Use and Manage eFIAT-100  
  Step.1   To configure your eFIAT-100  
  Initiation : The first time the eFIAT is turned on, the default device name "eFIAT-100" is displayed. There are three ways to configure the device.
1. Press function key and use keypad to input settings
2. Use the web management page to login and change settings through your web browser
3. Connect eFIAT-100 to Ethernet and use eFIAT Administrator utility to set up multiple devices
1. Press F1 to enter the settings mode. The following settings are configurable:
A. Password;  B. Ethernet;  C. Serial;  D. PS2;  E. USB;  F. Buzzer;  G. Time
2. After configuration, press F3 on the device to run the data acquisition program, or F5 to run a customized application. The collected information will then be forwarded to the backend server.
  ■ Press F2 on the device to show the current IP address of the device. Press F5 to show the current data and time of the device. F6 to F8 are reserved for custom applications.
■ The web interface allows changing of the system settings and monitoring of the input data status.
  Step.2   Administration through the web  
  In the settings mode, the peripheral devices connected to the FIAT-100 are configured to automatically forward the collected data to the IP address and port number specified in the settings. The included example program and source code provide the basis for creating
your own custom applications.
  Step.3   To manage eFIAT-100 via web page or administration tool  
  ■ The eFIAT-100 is a web-enabled device with a built-in web server, FTP server and related Internet services.
■ Built-in management web pages and web server make it easy to manage and monitor the eFIAT-100 remotely over a network.
■ With these management web pages, users can :
1. In setting mode : configure the device settings
2. In working mode : monitor the input data
In addition, eFIAT Administrator PC site utility enables IT administrators to monitor, synchronize configuration and upgrade firmware for multiple eFIAT-100s via the Internet.  
  System Stability Enhancement Design  
Ensure normal operation against network failure
  1. Network failures are automatically detected and a warning message is shown.
2. Callected data is stored in local memory until the network comes back online. Up to 10,000 records can be stored on the device.
3. After network recovery, all the recorded data is uploaded to the server.
Battery backup
  ■ A redundant server setup allows data to be stored in two places to provide a backup in case of server failure.
■ The eFIAT-100 can be configured to send all collected data to two backend servers simultaneously.
Redundant backend server support
  ■ A redundant server setup allows data to be stored in two places to provide a backup in case of server failure.
■ The eFIAT-100 can be configured to send all collected data to two backend servers simultaneously.
Barcoded system settings
  ■ The barcode reader switches to keyboard input mode after pressing F1 and entering the settings menu. The settings information can be programmed into a barcode for easy setup of all system settings.
Multi-layer authentication
  ■ A password is required to switch modes and change the system settings. The password is required whenever F1, F3 or F5 are pressed.
■ Three levels of user authentication are offered, user level depends on the entered password.
Information rich data packets
  ■ Each data packet sent from the device to the server includes the name of the device, the username of the current user, the I/O port, the data and the time the data was recorded.
Device Name / User Name / I/O Port / Date/Time
■ The server decodes the data packet to extract the information.
