    How to connect Algiz RT7 to your PC:

    Some Algiz RT7 are shipped with USB Host mode enabled by default. This means that the device will act as a USB host and not as a client. To change this:

    1. Open Settings
    2. Go to USB Host
    3. Disable the host mode and reconnect any USB cables currently plugged in

    How to set up Velocity on the RT7

    1. Import the attached scripts into your Velocity project

    4. On the device, go to Settings > Barcode > Wedge
    5. Set the Prefix to "{" an open curly bracket
    6. Set the Suffix to "}" a closing curly bracket
