Configuring the Device by Scanning the Configuration Barcodes

The following procedure illustrates the case when scanning the configuration barcodes that were created in Datalogic Aladdin. However, the configuration can be performed by sending configuration strings from the host PC via the RS232 or USB-COM interface also. For more information, see Datalogic manual and technical documentation.


1. Connect the device (base station) to the host PC.

2. Open the configuration file and scan the configuration barcodes in the order of appearance.

Next Steps

Verify the configuration by scanning a test barcode. For more information, see Verifying the Scanner Setup (Table Scanners).
