Purchasing a Barcode Scanner

A variety of barcode scanners can be configured to be used with the EBMS software. EBMS will accommodate scanners that are setup as a keyboard wedge and scanners that are attached to a COM port. There are benefits and limitations involved with each option.

Scanners must be programmed to work with the EBMS software. For keyboard wedge the scanner must prefix the scan with 'F8' and suffix with 'F10.' Contact an EBMS support rep for barcode scanner programming instructions.  

Keyboard Wedge


COM Port Connection

This method is becoming obsolete since the performance benefits are less pronounced than in the past.

Only the following items can be scanned using the COM Port connection
