Issue / Question
Scanners shipped with factory default settings are not sending Control characters to the host application.
Ctrl+G is not transmitted.
DS2200 Series (DS2208 / DS2278), DS8100 Series (DS8108 / DS8178), DS4308 / DS4308P
Resolution / Answer
The Keypad Emulation setting is enabled by default and must be disabled to allow scanners to send control characters. The Disable Keypad Emulation bar code can be found in the scanner's Product Reference Guide in the chapter that matches the host type being used, either:
- Radio Communications,
- USB Interface, or
- Keyboard Wedge
Scan the Disable Keypad Emulation bar code to send Control characters.
