All new M2, M7, M9, and M10 developer kits ship with the host interface set to USB by default. If this is the case, there should be a sticker on the module's anti-static bag stating that the default host interface is USB. The host interface remains USB until the user specifies a different type. The easiest way to change the host interface is via SkyeWare. In the reader configuration panel, set the host interface to Serial. Once this is done, you have the option of making this change in volatile or non-volatile memory. Clicking the Apply button makes the change in volatile memory, while clicking the Set Defaults button makes the change in non-volatile memory. Note, if changing via the Set Defaults command, the reader must go through a power-cycle for the change to take affect.
