This article describes how the functionality of a Swissbit hardware TSE can be checked with an additional program.
- Windows PC (min. Windows 7)
- Swissbit hardware TSE (locally connected to the computer, no virtualisation)
- Swissbit Hardware TSE test programme
Checking / Testing
To be able to perform the test, you first need to download the Swissbit Hardware TSE test programme. You can find the programme here:
The programme is packed in a ZIP package and does not contain a setup. Simply unpack it in a folder and start the programme SwissbitTest.exe.
After the programme has been started, a TSE can be selected in the upper combo box. Here you must find your TSE (normally only 1 TSE, except if several TSEs are connected to the computer).
SIf you have not connected the TSE until after the start, click "Reload".
- Is the TSE present in the combo box (if it is connected)?
- Is the status of the TSE displayed in the combo box (Initialized/Uninitialized)?
- Are plausible values displayed in the properties box on the right?
Now enter the cash register ID of the TSE in the Cash Register ID input field,
And click on "Run self test" (the button is present 2 times but has the same functionality).
- The self-test takes approx. 30 seconds. If "Execution successful" is then displayed, the TSE is OK.
The other properties of the TSE are also displayed in the properties box. If you find a version lower than 1.1.0 under TseSoftwareVersion, you should definitely and urgently update the firmware of the TSE.
