Health Message (Tran Type 73)
Simplify supports Health messages from the POS process.
A Health message is sent by the POS process to verify that Simplify is up and running on the PIN Pad. If Simplify receives a Health message, it echoes back the same message it receives.
If the POS process does not receive a response to the Health message, the POS process disconnects the TCP/IP socket and initiates the TCP/IP socket connection again.
An example of a Health message is as follows:
|API Field #, Value||Description|
|0001,73||A value of 73 indicates a Health message|
|0007,7765||This value can be used to sequentially number the Health messages|
|0013,092815||Field 13 is the Transaction Date (current date) — MMDDYY|
|0014,143005||Field 14 is the Transaction Time (current time) – HHMMSS|
