Question about Symbol PDT6842-NIS632EU Portable Data Terminal

PDT6842 simple scanning app

HI. I have a Symbol PDT6842 and I want to load a simple app (hexfile) into the unit that will let me scan any barcode (3 of 9 and UPC mostly) and read on the screen what the barcode data is. Don't need to be able to store or upload the data, just want to read what was scanned on the screen.
Any shareware apps around that will let me do that?

GO INTO YOUR BUILDHEX.BAT FILE AND ENABLE THE BAR CODES THEN HIT ESC. THEN S TO SAVE THEN RELOAD YOUR SCANNER. THIS IS THE FILE YOU MAKE ALL YOUR CHANGES TO.

Hello, I have a custom application but the scanner won't work with it. is there some way to enable the scanner to tell it to work. I have a quick scan sample app that works fine, but my custon app...


Hello,
there are several ways to use the scanner: you can have an application directly with scanner drivers implemented. Or you can install the application DataWedge provided by the manufacturer.
The DataWedge application will activate the scanner and the decoded barcode is sent as usual keypad input to the system. The application is running in background, so you can have your favourite simple application in foreground and scan data directly.
To download the DataWedge application please go to support.symbol.com website and search for DataWedge, or use this direct link http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=12685

You would need to configure the MC55 for the specific barcodes and lengths, there are some defaults values preinstalled. You can change them in the settings of your Scan Application.

I had a similar problem on an MC75.

Ls 9100


The first thing you need to do is set the LS9100 to know it's connected to a synapse cable. Scan the "set all defaults" barcode and then the "set synpase host" barcode. Once you have done this you can program the unit for the specific synpase cable your purchase, such as USB, PS/2, etc.
