PSC Duet RS-232 Handheld - help needed :(

I've recently purchased a PSC Duet Scanner, and I'm wanting to run it from a desktop PC running Windows XP This is a brand new piece of equipment. I am needing some advice on how to set it up, It came complete with scanner, a DB-9P(Male) - RJ10 lead, stand and a PSC I.T.E. Power Supply (10V 800mA) I have Tried it via the serial port and via a DB9-USB Adapter(with software), No joy. The Power Supply is a little confusing as the scanner has nowhere for this to be connected. Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated, Regards, Paul Wake

I had the cable plugged in all the time. It turns out you need a program like Bill Redirect Pro. That did the job.

Cab't get computer/application to recognize the scanner


This is an older model handheld that utilizes either and RS-232 cable or Symbol Synapse cable to link to a PC. If the model you are using is cordless, then there should be a dock that is used to connect to your PC.

Most computer peripherals using RS-232 connections require a driver install to the PC in order to recognize the input from the device. Upon successful connection of the handheld or dock to the PC with driver installed, the unit should work as long as there is no physical malfunction to the unit.

The driver utility support the p470 models can be found here:

This unit is only supported by Windows 2000 or Windows XP environments.

Windows XP does not recognize the Handheld scanner.


My guess is that the USB hub needs to be plugged in ... if for some reason the usb hub doesn't allow you to plug it in then you need to get one that you can plug in... because I believe the scanner is using more power that the usb port can power. Scanner usually need to be plugged directly into the computer or they need to be plugged into a powered hub.

I hope this helps!!!

PSC QuickScan GP5385-104342 RS-232 / DOESN'T WORK!


I think the problem you all are having is that this model of scanner requires a "decoder" to work correctly. It is another box which goes in-line between the scanner and the RS-232 port or ps/2 port of the pc. I'm not 100% positive about this, but I am pretty sure this is the problem. You need to look on e-bay for a psc barcode decoder.
