Scan and Store Barcodes To Enable Transmitting All Scanned Barcode at Once

Article ID: 16283536

Issue / Question

Would it be possible to accumulate data from multiple Code 39 symbols and transmitted in one-offs?

Example, scan on 1st code 39 barcode which contained data "123", then follow by 2nd code 39 barcode which contained data "abc". The scanner will accumulate all data and transmitted in one-offs,  and final decoded data as "123abc".

Applicable To

LS42x8, LS2208

Resolution / Answer

Code 39 Buffering (Scan & Store)
This feature allows the scanner to accumulate data from multiple Code 39 symbols.
Selecting the Scan and Store option (Buffer Code 39) temporarily buffers all Code 39 symbols having a leading space as a first character for later transmission. The leading space is not buffered.
Decode of a valid Code 39 symbol with no leading space causes transmission in sequence of all buffered data in a first-in first-out format, plus transmission of the “triggering” symbol. 


When the Do Not Buffer Code 39 option is selected, all decoded Code 39 symbols are transmitted immediately without being stored in the buffer.
This feature affects Code 39 only. If selecting Buffer Code 39, we recommend configuring the scanner to decode Code 39 symbology only.



Example:

Customer want the output data as 123ABC.

1. Scan Buffer Code 39.
2. Scan the 1st barcode (123), then following by 2nd barcode (ABC).
The output customer get will be 123ABC.
