Windows CE barcode scanning with Mobile NAV

Built-in barcode scanner running on Windows CE

These scanners are normally having built-in laser barcode reader or area-imager, they are ruggedized, and they are running on Windows CE (or Windows Mobile or Embedded Handheld). We support all vendors here. The only restriction is to run on Windows CE 5 or 6. We do not support CE 7. Some of the vendors are already integrated with their barcode scanning SDK, which means that if you install MobileNAV app, it will just work out of the box. These vendors are: Intermec, Motorola/Symbol, DataLogic, Psion, Delphi, M3, Casio, CipherLab, Ingenico and CHD, but we integrate new vendors from time to time (upon partner request as well). Other vendors can be used in “character mode” or “keyboard emulation” mode. Some models we were also able to test ourselves in the test-house.

Barcode reading with keyboard emulation (HID) mode

We also support SocketMobile devices. These are external barcode readers for Android and iOS. They have small holdable devices, and also attachable ones.

Most of the built-in or external scanners do support keyboard emulation mode, which means, that when you scan a barcode, the barcode characters will be sent like you have just typed in via the keyboard. MobileNAV supports keyboard emulation mode, if none of the above options suitable for your scanner. You just need to make sure that keyboard emulation is enabled on your scanner, and then execute the keyboard emulation mode configuration wizard in MobileNAV.

You can find the predefined barcodes for the configuration wizard here.

Barcode reader cradle on iOS

For iPhone we support the Linea Pro or Infinea products. These are basically cradles for iOS devices, and as a result you will have “one” unit with barcode scanning enabled.

Barcode reading with camera integration

This is not the most optimal way of scanning barcode, since it depends on the light conditions, and the quality of the barcode, but it works.
