Facts


 
LS3408ER

Answer


 

TelnetCE application is not set up to use an external scanner on the RS232 port.
LS3408ER scanner is not configured for RS232 mode.
External 5 volt parameter not set in the Windows Mobile 2003 operating system.
Use cable part number CBA-T02-C09ZA (25-68185-01) between LS3408ER scanner and PDT 8146 Xscale.
Configure the Wavelink TelnetCE application to use an external scanner and configure the COM port accordingly.

"Ext5V"=dword:00000002
"SerialPowerSettings"=dword:00000002
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ControlPanel\Power]
"Redirect"="\windows\ctlpnl.exe powerdll.cpl,0"
"Group"=dword:00000001
