Why does the read/write device not recognize the Moby D transponder?

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

When parameterizing the standard blocks, the parameter for the type of transponder is often forgotten. There are ISO and I-code transponders. You must configure the parameter field_ON_time in the standard block FC45/FB45 according to the type of transponder. Otherwise the read/write device does not recognize the transponder and cannot process it.

More information on parameterizing the transponder is available in the following manuals:

Firmware version V3.0
In firmware version V3.0 onwards, for some devices there are more values available for the field_ON_time parameter:

Value Order number
02 / 03 6GT2602-0AA00 SLG D10S ANT D5
02 / 04 6GT2602-0AB00 SLG D12S
02 / 04 6GT2602-0AB10-0AX0 SLG D12S WITH 8-PIN CONNECTOR M12
02 / 04 6GT2602-0AC00 SLG D11S ANT D5
Table 02

These values have the following meanings:

  • Value 02 -> Recognize/Edit both transponder types: I-code and ISO transponder
  • Value 03 -> Optimized processing of the Infineon chip
  • Value 04 -> Optimized processing of the Fujitsu(FRAM) chip
