Other Scanners and software configurations:
Your computer, OS, database software, and/or scanner may differ from those tested by RapID Lab. While RapID Lab cannot provide individual support for unique cases, we offer the following information to assist customers in configuring a unique system. Scanners typically will need to have the following settings programmed or activated in order to read RapID Tag codes:
- Inverse Data Matrix
- Rectangular Data Matrix
Please refer to your scanner documentation for information on programming or activating the settings above. Like the CODE scanners, many scanners may be programmed by simply scanning bar codes or symbols from the product’s user manual.
Most database software will require the installation or use of a virtual COM port if your scanner is a USB based scanner.
