The DT-X30 can either be equipped with a laser scanner or an imager (CMOS-Camera). You will find an overview with all readable codes in the software manual.
Laser Scanner Demo
You will find a demo program for simple tests and presentations under START, PROGRAMS, UTILITY. Under Windows Mobile it is located directly in the Programs folder. The laser scanner can only read 1D barcodes.
In the same folder as the demo program you can find the program Laser Scanner Read (Barcode Read). This scanner wedge is running invisibly in the background and puts the collected to the respectively actual cursor position. If this wedge is used a complex own development can become unnecessary. For better performance of the wedge under Windows Mobile, we recommend disabling word completion at START, SETTINGS, PERSONAL, INPUT.
Setting for the laser scanner can be done under START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL. The settings have to be saved in a configuration menu.
The settings are only valid for the scanner wedge and own programs. The Laser Scanner Demo (see above) does always run with the default setting.
Enhanced Laser and Imager Scanner Application
As an enhancement to the integrated Imager / Laser Scanner Wedge Application, an Enhanced Laser and Imager Scanner Application ("ELISA") is available with enhanced features such as Bulk Scanning, Aimer Mode, Barcode Filter, Counter Window etc.
The Scanner-Wedge can only be used when the symbol for the scanner is displayed in the status bar.
The scanner only processes codes that have been activated with the matching settings.
Please pay attention to the correct reading distance from the scanner to the label (20 – 30cm).
Damaged labels cannot be processed by the scanner.
How can I configure the scanner for the Remote Desktop Connection (RDP)?
Configuration depends on the OS running on your DT-X30. On Windows Mobile, you can make your settings for the scanner at Start, Settings, System, "Scanner Setting". Go to the tab "Read operation", and select "Output Clipboard". Confirm your settings with OK. Once you have finished making your settings, launch the scanner wedge again at Start, Programs, "Barcode Read".
On Windows Embedded CE, you can make your settings for the scanner at Start, Settings, Control Panel, "Laser Setting". Go to the tab "Read Operation", and select "Output Keyboard". In the field below specify whether you need an additional termination code, e.g. the tabulator, or not. Confirm your settings with OK. Once you have finished making your settings, launch the scanner wedge again at Start, Programs, Utility, "Laser Scanner Read".
Last but not least configure the Remote Desktop Client software. Set "Apply Windows key combinations" to "On the local computer”. You can find the settings window for key combinations in the dialog box of the RDP client. For further details refer to the Software Manual.
