Thank you for your reply, Joe. I wish to read 1D and 2D (QR) type barcodes, preferably with a wired scanner. I actually gave the Dimex DS2208 barcode scanner a try and it worked fine with UniStream. I connected it via USB and the PLC accepted it as a keyboard meaning the user will have to press a text box and only then scan the barcode, which might be just fine for my application.
Hi, I am using the Unistream 7 (USP-070-B08) PLC and I wish to implement a barcode scanner to my project I wish to connect the scanner via USB to the PLC and read from it using the message composer and COM serial function (COM Rx) My question is has anyone here ever worked with a barcode scanner in the manner I describe and if so can you please note what barcode scanner did you use and what model or even recommend a scanner that is suitable for my applications thanks in advance, Amit.
