DS6607 incorrectly parsing PDF417 barcode

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:

DAJPA
DAQ365
DBA09172010
DBB04171963
DBC1
DBD09172008
DCF001
DCGUSA
DCSAdelsberg
DCTGregory POPULATED
ZCECFI
ZCL
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.

Any ideas?

    Note, further testing shows that the same behavior is seen when scanning my PA drivers license.

    The DS6607 returns:
    A "41" is returned (which isn't even the FIPS code for PA, by the way), followed by LastName FirstNameMiddleName and then a dozen or so spaces. All other fields are filtered out.

    While the other scanner returns all fields.

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.

I want scan barcode 39. Hou can i program mine ms9520 voyager scanner. Thank you

That is a link to the PDF help file for the MS9520. It has barcodes inside that you scan with your scanner to enable/disable certain features. It looks like you should be able to enable Code 39 barcodes by scanning the barcode found on page 2-2 (actually on page 10).

I recently purchased a ccd barcode scanner with usb. am i supposed to have certain software yo use this on my comp? the manual is not clear on what i have to do.


Some barcode readers need no software. Just place the cursor in the box where the information in the bar code has to extracted and then use the barcode reader. That's just it!

Manual carriage return necessary after scanning barcode


With the Symbol scanners, they usually come with a sheet at least of scan codes to configure the scanner. One of those bar codes will have the option of not needing to manually hit the carriage return. What model scanners are they? You can probably find the codes from Symbol.

We are using Unitech PT630, HT630 for our stock audit at various retail outlets. we get wrong barcodes while scanning. Most of the times, scanner return only 4-6 charectors or part of the barcode is read...


Algunas simbologias de codigos de barras pueden dar lecturas parciales (como el interleaved 2 de 5). Entonces verifica lo siguiente: el lector laser este limpio, y en la aplicacion puedes restringir la lectura a un numero fijo (8 por ejemplo) para que solo lea codigos de barras de longitud fija. Some bar code symbologies can be read in part (such as Interleaved 2 of 5). Then check the following: the laser reader is clean, and the application can restrict the reading to a fixed number (8 for example) only to read barcodes of fixed length.

Bar Code Used as Document Name


It's not really an issue with the scanner. The scanner will pick up the image and convert it to whatever you want, but your backend software is what you'll need to mess with for this. Any form recognition software will work (Form Storm, ABBYY FormReader, etc.)
