P7 Wireless Barcode Scanner with 400M Ultra Long Transmission Distance
Print the following PDF
Scan the barcodes in order
If you are unable to program the scanner using the above PDF, the same information can be found in the programming manual pdf below.
Print pages 68, 74 and 88
Scan the barcodes in the following order.
To test that the STX Prefix (Ctrl+B) has been programmed successfully, Drop to a command prompt and scan a barcode (NOT one of the ones from the programming sheets)
You should see something like this:
What you are looking for is that the scanner scanned a ^B before the barcode and it translates to a little smiley face character on the next line.
If this is what you see, you have correctly programmed the barcode scanner.
If you are running Windows 10 and still do not get the ^B character, you will need to run the command prompt as an administrator on the local workstation, and on the remote session, then check the properties of the command prompt.
Setting up your Barcode scanner in System Five is the last step. You must ensure that the device itself is properly configured with the Pre amble and Post amble characters that will not conflict with either System Five or the Windows (TM) Operating System. The Barcode Reader page in the Setup Wizard provides a method of using the actual device to input the configuration.
Assuming that your Barcode Scanner is properly configured, click [Read Barcode Scanner], scan any Barcode you have available and System Five will intercept the information from the scanner and fill in the Pre-Amble and the value of the Barcode you scanned. Click [Save Settings] to complete the process.
The [Default Pre-Amble Setting] button can be used to reset to the System Five default settings.
