How to configure Intermec mobile device to enable multicode funciontality? What is multicode functionality? Is it possible to read several barcodes in one pass (i.e. within one trigger activation) and does some parsing on the decoded data before shipping the result to the Host receiving application? Can the scanner read more than one barcode at a time?
Mobility Hardware: CK3x(xx), CN5x, CN7x
Operating Systems: Windows Embedded Handheld
The multicode functionality is used to configure the scanner to read a series of bar codes together and in a controlled order, and then transmit them all at once. This functionality is only supported on "Area Imager" engines.
Follow below steps to setup the multicode function :
Activate the multicode function.
Select the number of bar codes to be included in the multicode scenario.
Define in sequence which bar codes are part of the multicode by specifying the bar code ID, length, and/or mask.
Define a separator to be used between bar codes (optional).
Define the multicode transmission parameters.
Define the symbology identifiers for each type of transmission (optional).
All above parameters can be configured under 'Intermec Settings' >'Datacollection' >'Internal Scanner' >'Symbology Options' >'Multicode'
