The 2009 provides an excellent entry-level device for barcode scanning at a reasonable price. Simply place the touch scanner above the barcode. After pressing the trigger on the bottom of the device the scanner automatically decodes the barcode information and transmits it to the host. The scanner's 80 mm scanning range ensures that it can read all commercial barcodes such as EAN codes PZN ISBN etc.The scanner is available with three connection types: keyboard wedge USB and serial interface. The keyboard wedge version is simply connected between the PC and keyboard. All scanned data is sent unchanged to the keyboard interface and appears on the screen as if typed on the keyboard. The USB version works in a similar way: the data appears on the screen exactly where the cursor is located. Both versions do not require additional software changes and can therefore be used with any application. If the scanner is connected via the serial interface the software has to poll the RS232 interface actively before data can be processed internally.In order to achieve optimum results under all conditions the 2009 comes with a configuration manual that helps you adapt the scanner to various environmental conditions. No programming experience is required to configure the scanner. Simply choose the desired option and programme it by scanning the respective programming barcode. Use this feature to turn various barcode types on or off configure RS232 parameters adjust the scanner to different languages or configure other options.The scanner is available in black or white and includes a connection cable. The rubber scanner holder is suitable for screw or glue installation. If required order the holder separately.
