How to Restore Default Settings

The OPI-3601 is set to default settings by reading the following menu label regardless of the interface types.
This scan code actually restores the custom block settings that were last saved by a BAQ command. Ideally, when the reader is defaulted or set up by the customer, a BAQ command is also sent. This scan code (BAP command) will restore those custom settings.
