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.
