Universal Menu Book

The Universal Menu Book (UMB) is a PDF document that enabled you to change the most commonly changed settings on Opticon's scanners. The UMB also contains information about what the various settings do when they are enabled. The UMB covers the following topics.

  • Interface Specific Settings
  • Code Opticons
    • Barcode Symbology Settings
    • Enabling/Disabling Symbologies
  • String Options
    • Prefixes / Suffixes
    • Preambles / Postambles
  • Read Options- Adjusting General Behaviors like:
    • Disable Trigger (Always On)
    • Single Read Mode / Multiple Read Mode
  • Indicator Opticons
    • Buzzer Settings
    • LED Settings

Opticonfigure

Opticonfigure serves primarily as a an online searchable Universal Menu Book (UMB), however it does have some notable differences. Opticonfigure is updated more frequently than the UMB. Opticonfigure also contains some menu options that were excluded from the UMB for the sake of brevity. Although more inclusive, Opticonfigure doesn't do as good of presenting information in an organized and comprehensible manner as the UMB does. Opticonfigure allows you to: Create and print custom configuration sheets. Create custom configuration sheets and save them as PDF files. Create custom configurations and export OCG files. Create DataWizard configuration sheets.

DataWizard

Data Wizard allows you to modify barcode data before transmission. Currently it is able to add or remove characters, adjust the length of the output data, and remove entire sections of the barcode prior to transmission. Commonly each configuration will be designed to match different sizes, symbologies, or characters in barcode data. So for example if a user wants to truncate a Code-39 barcode of a specific length, but add characters to a Code 128 barcode, you wold make two configurations.

Fun Facts

  • When trying to trigger the NLB1000 or RLB1000 using the brown trigger wire one must keep in mind you are talking about high and low for the processor so high is 3.3V and low is ground (0V). They trigger on low and are at high by default so to trigger the scanner all you have to do is ground the brown wire.
