BV5100 Pro Barcode Scanner

Mon Feb 22, 2021 5:23 pm

Just took delivery of 4 BV5100 pro phones primarily because of the Barcode scanner.  I thought I could just click in the input area of my software, press the scan button, and have the information from the barcode put in that field.  Apparently the barcode scanner is not set up as an input device.  How do I fix this?  The scanner is useless to me if I cannot scan information into the software I need it to go into.

Hello Blackview_Admin

I worked for Honeywell Productivty Products last 16 years.

A device with a hardware barcode scanner is useless in professional environment, if the Barcode Scanner device does not come with a SDK. Even if the OS has been extended to 'wedge' the scanned barcode data, not all apps are compatible with the way a 'keyboard wedge' works and so you need some way to adjust the feature.

I looked for a manual of the BV5100 Pro but was unable to find one. Did you really take the N6603 and built it into the device with no SDK support? Inustrial companies want to control the barcode scanner from their custom apps. But wthout a SDK this is not possible.

So, where is the manual with N6603 usage? And where is the N6603 SDK for the BV5100 Pro.

regards

Admin, do you plan on adding the 'text input' feature ?
If not, the barcode scanner would just remain an unusable gimmick on a phone that started out as a great idea.
