For some Zebra scanners that will be attached to a portable RS-232 host, using an external power supply is not always feasible. In this case cable 25-39805-01R, which pulls power from an available PS/2 port may be a viable solution to power the scanner.
Ensure the voltage and current provided by the host port meet the voltage and current requirements of the scanner.
Plug the 25-39805-01 mini din connector into an available PS/2 port.
Plug the mini plug portion of the cable into the power jack of the RS-232 or Synapse cable.
Most portable host devices have the unused PS/2 port disabled as a power saving feature. Consult manufacturer documentation for host device about enabling this port.
Note: The 25-39805-01 has been discontinued with no replacement; a custom cable would be required. Contact your Zebra Sales representative for assistance completing a Custom Product Request form.
