Question about Symbol Scanners
I have a DS6607 scanner that my employer purchased in bulk before checking to see that they actually work with our applications. We also have two older 2d Symbol scanners that I cant find model numbers for. The two older scanners scan our PDF417 barcodes correctly. Here is what they return:
ZCTLicensed Practical Nurse
The symbol DS6607 returns only the following:
4104171963 Adelsberg GregoryPOPULATED
It seems like it is trying to intelligently parse the data instead of just returning what is encoded. The field names (DCT, ZCE, etc.) are filtered out, and obviously not all fields are returned.
For anyone interested, I worked with the vendor to find a solution. After some back and forth, they replied:
"I have looked up the part number of your scanner [DS6607-SR20130] and discovered that it defaults to different defaults than the standard SR20001 scanner. Specifically, it pads the data transmission with spaces and implements a custom ADF rule".
They sent codes for disabling these defaults. Moral of the story: contact your vendor.
