About (2D Imager Companion Scanner)

The OPN3102i Bluetooth Companion Scanner with a 2D imager scan engine that can decode 1D and 2D bar codes. This companion scanner enables real-time bar code scanning by pairing with any Bluetooth-ready device including Android, iOS, Blackberry and Windows devices.

  • The OPN3102i is certified as a MFi device (Made For iDevices) https://developer.apple.com/programs/mfi/
  • The OPN3102i Does NOT have an application layer, so there is no Opticon SDK development software for the OPN device itself.
  • Your developer may however create their own iPhone/iPad like program (similar to our AppStore downloadable OPNTerm program)
    • To do that, your developer must download & use Apple’s XCode platform: https://developer.apple.com/xcode/
    • The SDK document instructions & SDK-Bluetooth framework should help a MFi developer with the OPN3102i specific information.

Batch Mode

Batch mode will be enabled when the device is no longer connected via bluetooth.

However, once reconnected, the data will begin streaming immediately. It is recommended that you have a text editor or application open, assuming the OPN3102 is in BT-HID mode, so that the data has somewhere to go. To cause the OPN3102i to wait for a button press before streaming, scan this configuration sheet.

To sever the Bluetooth connection, hold down the trigger/scan button until you hear a disconnect tone (or scan the "Manual Disconnect" scan code '+-DISC-+' - See the Universal Menu Book for the menu scan code symbols) -- This action just disconnects from the current Bluetooth host computer until it has something else to send.

To keep from auto-connecting after a regular symbol scan, scan the menu code to disable the Bluetooth auto-connect 'DIAU'. otherwise, the device will try to re-connect to the Bluetooth device after any normal scan.

NOW: scan all bar codes into storage.

When your application is open and ready in your host and you are in-range, scan the auto-connect menu code 'ENAU' or just hold down the trigger/scan button until you see the blue LED indicator flash - it should re-connect to the last paired device AND:

  • If configured for HID mode - it will dump the data into the open application, like a keyboard entry. To have the data stream over a USB cable scan this configuration sheet.
  • If in SPP mode, it will dump the data into the computer's appropriate COM port.
  • If in MFi mode, it will dump the data into the appropriate iOS application program.
