Bar Code Scanner

Beitrag von Rutty » Fr 18. Jan 2019, 14:51

We have acquired a datalogic TD1100 USB Barcode Scanner for use with Shootmaster. Can you provide any advice or information about installing and configuring it?

Thanks

Hello Rutty,

In principle, a barcode scanner is not installed. I also have one for our biggest competitions. Here I use the Albasca USB CCD 820. Also the model 800 of Albasca can be used and is recommended by Meyton.

Best regards

Mario

Thanks Mario,

How did you install the scanner on your control PC? We have a lot of IT knowledge in our club, but barcode scanners are something we know very little about. All the installation procedures seem to involve scanning a code,but as their appears to be no host, it’s a bit chicken and egg. Which comes first!!

Hello Rutty,

the Scanner does not need to be installed.

This is simply connected to the computer and he is ready.

Best regards

Mario

Thanks Mario,

That’s what we thought. I think it may be an issue in the boot sequence that results in the PC not recognising the device. We shall look into it.

Regards,
Rutty

Hello Rutty,

the barcode reader should act as a normal USB Keyboard.

http://treiber-handbuch.id-austria.at/m ... TD1100.pdf
To reprogram if necessary you can use the barcodes in the manual.

To check if it acts as a normal keyboard simply open a texteditor and scan some barcodes.
You should see the numbers in the texteditor.

Best regards
Chris

Thank you very much, that’s just the guidance I needed.

Rutty

Addition:

Further investigation has revealed that the scanner appears to have a ROM fault and that was the reason it wasn't working. We shall acquire a replacement and see how that goes.
