The software we currently have is looking for a CTRL 1 (control button and the 1 button together) to notify it of an incoming scan. The LS2208 easily takes prefix values but it does not specify how to do a CTRL 1 (specifically looking at page 5-16 of the LS2208 Manual).
Well, I received contact back from Motorola/Symbol pretty quickly. Unfortunately it doenst look like I can program it in as a ctrl+1 (I'll have to do some digging to allow the program to accept ctrl+2)
"I looked into your request to do a Control 1 however on our scanner we are not able to perform that function. If there is another way to setup the software to have it read something else that might be the best bet."
