Preparing the idChamp™ RS3 for BLE Mode

 

Note: If you are having issues with your idChamp™ RS3 in BLE mode, it could be that the Bluetooth Low Energy module is in an unexpected state. To reset the BLE module, toggle DIP switch #4 on bank S3. You can also use S3-4 to turn off the BLE module while in HID or SPP mode.



 



1. Power off your RS3 and take it out of its enclosure by unscrewing the four screws, then lifting the lid.


2. Locate the DIP switch banks labeled "S2" and "S3" along the short edge opposite the micro-USB port.


3. Grab a paperclip or similarly shaped object (pens are NOT recommended) and flip the DIP switches up or down to match the image below. If you have problems loading the image, use the DIP switch table.



4. Locate the DIP switch banks labeled "S4" and "S5" along the long edge of your RS3. Flip the DIP switches up or down to match the image below. If you have problems loading the image, use the DIP switch table.




5. If you are planning to keep your RS3 in BLE mode, you can put it back in its enclosure now.


6. Power on your RS3.
