CRE POS serial scanner doesn't scan

I have a PSC Magellan SL scanner/scale Model 382 and have used in the past with Comcash POS program BUT now I am trying to get it work with Cash Register Express. This Magellan scanner/scale has dual cables one for the scanner RS232 serial and the other for the scale. The scale works with CRE POS but I can't get the scale to read into CRE. Their tech support don't have a clue. The scanner scans into Hyperterminal but does not scan into notepad. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEA HOW TO GET THIS SERIAL SCANNER TO SCAN INTO CRE POS. Please Help

Is the scale set to NCI or Weightronix mode? In our software, The General Store, we have scale options for both of these emulations.

We also have settings for baud rate, parity, etc. for each com port.

Se if CRE has similar options in their software's peripheral device setup.

If it is the scanner that is causing fits, see if they support serial barcode scanners. If not, then you need to use something like twedge.

You can try to use a software package called Twedge...I've used it to solve issues just like you have above with a scanner scale and a Y cable...

I have magellan 2200vs it works fine but it cant read anything


If the interface is serial RS-232, only a POS software is used to read it into the application. PCs can display a bar code directly only if the interface is USB or PS2 and emulating the keyboard.

Driver for psc quickscan 6000 plus scanner


Hi!

Your PSC QuickScan 6000 should not require any drivers. If this unit plugs into your keyboard port, you should be able to scan a barcode and view the data results in a text editor, such as Notepad. This technology is called "Keyboard Wedge" and consists of a cable with three ends. The first is plugged into your hand-held scanner. The second and third are rather close together and are at the end of the cable. This cable is called a "Y" cable because it resembles the uppercase letter "Y". The bottom part of the "Y" plugs into your scanner, while the first upper part plugs into your computer. The second upper part of the "Y" should be a female plug, allowing you to plug your keyboard into it.

Now if you are using a Keyboard Wedge scanner with a USB keyboard, the female end of the "Y" cable would not have anything plugged into. Unfortunately, the scanner will most likely not operate properly if no keyboard is attached to the keyboard port.

I suspect you may have an RS232 or "serial" scanner. Does your scanner have a power supply that plugs into a standard wall outlet? If so, you may have a serial interface scanner. You could use a program called Com to Keyboard, which would convert RS232 or "serial" data into keyboard data. This is a free program, however, it is a resource hog and may slow your system down.


Feel free to call if you have any additional questions.
Good Luck & I Hope this helps!
-Dave
