Datalogic Heron D130 (Barcode Reader) Header setup

Hi all, my question is simple: how to set the Header to the combination key "Control" + "3" ? The D130 manual is not clear. It doesn't show a practical example. I tried more, but without results. :( I need to set header reading barcode. Thanks in advance, Fabrizio.

Re: Datalogic Heron D130 (Barcode Reader) Header setup

Whether or not you can set this feature depends on which interface type you are using if you are using wedge interface then the procedure is described below: The extended Header/Terminator keys for Wedge Interface users can be customized by defining them through a simple keyboard setting procedure. For example, the Numeric Keypad keys can be set for use as Headers or Terminators by substituting the default extended keys using this procedure. The type of computer or terminal must be selected before activating the keyboard setting command. Press and release a key to set it. Some characters may require more than one key pressed simultaneously during normal use (refer to the manual of your PC or terminal for keyboard use). The exact sequence must be indicated to the reader in this case pressing and releasing the different keys. Example: If one has to press the "Shift" and "4" keys simultaneously on the keyboard to transmit the character "$" to the video, to set the "$", press and release "Shift" then press and release "4". Each pressed and released key must generate an acoustic signal on the reader, otherwise repress the key. Never press more than one key at the same time, even if this corresponds to the normal use of your keyboard. Press "Backspace" to correct a wrong key entry. In this case the reader emits 2 beeps. Note: "CAPS LOCK" and "NUM LOCK" must be off before starting the keyboard setting procedure. "SHIFT" must be repressed for each character and cannot be substituted by "CAPS LOCK". Check page 31-33 of the "heron reference manual", downloadable near the bottom of this link page; Hope this helps :)

Possibility is the that the engineers of your POS Software company are right, but we can definitely prove them wrong provided we test and, or check the same POS software or setup on a similar brand new computer.

The scanner doesn't read the barcodes anymore and makes a weird noise while we're using it. is there anything I can do to solve the inconvenience immediatly? thanks

We have had the problem, that the scanner generated a crazy sound after it dropped onto the concrete floor. I think the buzzer came loose. Best thing to do on a short time basis is to disable the beep via the manual.
You can find the manual here:

Default settings set a global limit of 4.

You can set the global minimum code length by following the instructions in the user manual on page 24:

1) Start
2) Set Global Min Length
3) Scan the number on page 303: I.e. '0' followed by '3' to set length to 3
4) Set
5) End
