Using a hands-free ring scanner with the Honeywell Dolphin 70E / 75E limits use of scanned bar code data.

Version 3

    Environment: Connect a Honeywell hands-free ring scanner 8610, 8620, 8670 (this is the wired ring scanner model, not bluetooth) to a Honeywell Dolphin 70E Windows Mobile 6.5

    Problem: Customer has a hands-free ring scanner connected to a Honeywell Dolphin 70E / 75E and experiences the following:

    1. Scanned bar code data sent from the hands-free ring scanner cannot be distinguished from input from the keypad.

    2. Scanned bar code data sent from the hands-free ring scanner cannot be used to identify the symbology (bar code type) of a scanned bar code.

    Both issues prevent Host input fields from taking action based on recognizing scanned data from keypad data as well as recognizing one scanned bar code type from another.

     

    Solution/Workaround: Use the Honeywell Dolphin 70E / 75E integrated scanner rather than the hands-free ring scanner.

     

     

     

    Dolphin 70e     Once the ring scanner is connected, you must run ScanEdge NGW and have an application able to receive scanned data open before your scanner will be able to scan.  The lighting and aimer will not turn on when you press the trigger until ScanWedge NGW and data capture ready application are running on the terminal

    Dolphin 75e     By default, scan wedging is enabled on Dolphin 75e terminals.  The scan wedge feature sends scanned bar code data to an active application as Android keyboard input.

     

    Note:     When connecting the 8620 Ring Scanner you must have ScanWedge

                  NGW running and a scanning application open on your terminal to be

                   able to scan a bar code.
