Question about Metrologic Instruments MS5145 Handheld

Configuring eclipse 5145

Is it possible to configure scanner so it reads only first 10 digits of a EAN13 code?

On shoes and clothes the 11-th and 12-th digit often represents size, and then you can have 8 barcodes for the same article that are different only in last 2 digits (then also the check digit changes). I would like to have only first 10 digits as a product code and then the scanner have to recognize all the same products, regardles the size.

Please, can you find any solution?
Thanks!

Turning off check digit sending and adding 4 suffixes: 2 cursors left and 2 deletes, solved the problem.

The barcode reader eclipse ms5145 powers on,the laser light blinks and beeps at scan by not scan the barcode


It could be either one of two things, first of all will this unit scan any barcodes, or is it just one particular one it will not scan. If nothing scans and if no special programming was added to the scanner I would consider defaulting the unit back to factory settings. This procedure can be found in the manual that came with the scanner or here is a link http://www.honeywellaidc.com/CatalogDocuments/00-02544%20Rev%20K%202-11.pdf *** If you are going to do this please confirm that no special programming was done to this *** but normally they are ready to scan right out the box. So scan the barcode to "enter/exit configuration" the unit will beep tree times, then scan the "recall defaults" and the unit will beep once. Then scan the "enter/exit configuration" once more. Then try to scan a retail barcode. Hope this helps.

Hi.....im using Eclipse Metrologic Instruments, model no.is MS5145 LS USB barcode scanner. now it is not working. whenever i tried to scan a barcode, it red light goes on continously. i also initialized it...


If the kit number : MK5145-71a48 that you referenced above is correct, your scanner is single ended keyboard wedge, not usb. You would need to order the correct cable : MX009-3ma7c from Honeywell to connect via usb.

My scanner reads only12 numbers not 13 numbers from barcode what h do?


Perhaps you should ask for replacements and ask for a bar code scanner who reads 13 numbers because even how many times you try it over and over again if the function of the scanner is limited in reading 12 number the results will be the same..Hope it can Help you.

ı have mc 7090 using windows mobile 6.1 ı use datawedge 3.2.4 ı want o scan code 128 type barcodes but its not reading. I was using earlier 2.0.2 version and checked symbologies...


Hello Osman, in the default settings of datawedge is an issue with barcode length for code128. Please check it and setup the specific length, that you want to use.
Klick on the DataWedge icon, select Standard Configurations, go to Scanner, Decoders, Code128 and select the min and max value.

We need to convert UPC-A barcode number to EAN-13


Most scanners will convert UPCA to EAN13 as you scan if you have that setting checked. A 0 will be added in front of the UPCA to make it an EAN13. Nothing else changes. You can read about this stuff on Wikipedia.

Extra zero


The default setting for this scanner is EAN13 enabled. This means that all 12 character barcodes will be changed to 13 characters by adding a zero in front.
How to Disable:

Open the manual that came with the scanner (it's available to download on the Cipherlab web page if you don't have it).
Find the UPCA Parameters barcodes (currently page 29). The next heading down is Convert to EAN13. You will see the disable and enable barcodes.

1) Scan Enter Setup Barcode (on practically every page of the manual at the bottom). The scanner will beep 6 times.
2) Scan the Convert to EAN13 Disable barcode. The scanner will beep once.
3) Scan the Update barcode at the bottom of the same page.

Your scanner should now read both 12 and 13 character barcodes correctly.

Hope this helps:)

Ean 13 problem


you are probably reading to a inteligent software package like Excell, which sees the inputted data as a number (so ignores leading zeros) you need to specify to the sytem that the incoming numbers are TEXT not numbers.

Ms9535 bt not reading barcodes.


I'm using the same Barcode reader, the Metrologic MS9535 VoyagerBT.

The brief humming noize is called a "Rasbery tone" in the manual. It means that the barcode reader is not configured to read that kind of barcode, a barcode Code if you will.

There are many types of barcodes so you have to go to the Metrologic Website and get the Barcode Configuration tool to configure your barcode reader to read the type of codes you will be using.

Alternatively there is a book with configuration barcodes you can scan to configure your barcode reader manually.
