General
The WR77 Wicket Reader is an RFID (radio frequency identification) reader for use with IDX Account Based Wickets, which incorporate ISO standard 15693 RFID (radio frequency identification) data tags laminated into the center layer of a tough Teslin based card or key tag. The Readerís emitted RF field is used to both power and communicate with the chip/antenna of the tag. The WR77 reads the Wicketís unique User ID and communicates it to the OEMís equipment for it to access the userís account information stored elsewhere in a database.

Security
The WR77 reads encrypted data from the RFID tag to authenticate it as an IDX Account Based Wicket. If the read data fails to authenticate the tag, the WR77 will indicate rejection by blinking red for two seconds and will not report the presence of the RFID tag. The OEM is responsible for validation of any data stored on the Wicket and for the security of the database holding user account information.

Protocol
The WR77 has two operating modes: 1) a polling based protocol wherein the WR77 status is always returned, and if a Wicket has just been freshly read then its UserID, Wicket Type, and Sub-Type are also appended to the poll response, and 2) an auto-response protocol wherein the UserID, Wicket Type, and Sub-Type of a freshly read Wicket are immediately reported without polling. Wicket Types include gaming, non-gaming commerce, and employee ID. The Type and Sub-Type may be used by a local controller to determine if the Wicket applies at the current location. For, example, a maintenance employee ID can be rejected by a arcade gameís controller without consulting a remote database as there would be no game play credits associated with a maintenance employees account.
