Hello, I have the flojackBzr and can not seem to get it to read cards. I have created an app and followed the tutorial, however I never get any FmSessionManager delegate callbacks.
The Xcode output shows this,

Im not sure if a firmware update is needed for it to work properly. We did receive a link to update it, but it is for a windows machine and we are all Mac based.
Any suggestions to why the reader is not reading?
Thanks.July 6, 2017 at 12:08 pm #60312
Hi Ben, I sent you an TestFlight invitation for you to try our test application with your reader to make sure you’re not having a hardware issue. Launch that, plug in your reader and select Flomio BZR from the menu to test.
Let me know how that goes,

Thank you for the response. I tried that app, but am not seeing anything displayed when trying to read the card. Should I be? What is the APDU text field for?
Do I need to somehow pair the reader with my phone or is there some step I could be missing in general?
Could the RFID cards be incompatible?
BenJuly 6, 2017 at 3:08 pm #60314
Hi Ben, yes you should definitely be seeing scan notifications and log entries. Here’s a video of how it in action:
Once you plug in your device you should hear an audible beep. Make sure your have your volume raise to the max on your iOS device. The APDU field is for sending commands to the RFID/NFC tag once it’s presented. The RFID cards you have could definitely be incompatible. The BZR support ISO14443A targets which operate at the 13.56MHz frequency band. Check that and let us know if still stuck.

Thanks for the reply Richard.
It seems we have cards that operate at 125Khz. Would the FloBLE plus work with theses cards?
If not, do you have a product that would?
BenJuly 17, 2017 at 3:37 pm #60402
Hi Ben, the FloBLE Plus won’t work with 125KHz tags unfortunately. Check out the IDChamp from SerialIO as a good option. There are several models so make sure you purchase one that supports LF (low frequency, 125KHz).
