6.6.1 Return the serial number

This command should be used to check for the presence of a card. It is special in that it can be used to reset the card. Most other commands will return an error when a card change has been detected and the use of this function is therefore required.

Background: We want to keep the client clear of handling card changes between operations; i.e. the client can assume that all operations are done on the same card unless he call this function.


Return the serial number of the card using a status response like:

  S SERIALNO D27600000000000000000000

The serial number is the hex encoded value identified by the 0x5A tag in the GDO file (FIX=0x2F02).
