    Recommend a Wireless Barcode Reader for Eclipse.Net

    Hi,

    As the title says really. We are looking for a Wireless Barcode Reader that our librarian can use with Eclipse.Net. Needs to work on XP and above ideally.

    Also if you add where you brought it from that would be great.

    Thanks,

    Rob

    Not a wireless barcode reader but we purchased a Metrologic MS 3780 Fusion scanner for our librarian. She likes it as it sits in the stand and she just holds the books/cards under it for them to be scanned - no buttons to press! I'd have a look at the metrologic range as MLS didn't seem to have problem programming it for us when it got sent off.

    We purchased ours from Insight.

    Speak to MLS support, not all barcode scanners are compatible with Eclipse and they only fully support the ones they supply, as we found out to our cost :-(

    Interestingly they didn't/couldn't get a scanner that did what our librarian wanted - to sit there in a dock being able to scan items without having to press a button first, but to also be able to pick it up and use it like a normal handheld scanner. In the end we found a scanner and asked if it was compatible - they said probably but they'd need it to program it correctly and check it worked. Sent it away and a week later we had a new scanner that worked

    Strange we have a Datalogic heron here that can sit in it's cradle and do that and it was easy enough to reprogram by scanning in the relevant codes to work with eclipse, also have a wasp scanner that works with it that one was a bit trickier to reprogram but we still did it here with the codes.

    Give these a try, I used to work there Barcode scanners and barcode printersfrom UnIQue ID. Providing barcode scanner and barcode printer solutions for the UK ask for Tony or Jamie, they'll sort you out. Datalogic or HHP are the best to be honest for a simple USB scanner, either fixed mount or hand held

    So you can program the scanner yourself? Please tell me how!

    It's all in the instruction manual you just scan some specific barcodes from it.

    Awesome! Thanks.

    ......Errr.....afterthought.... is it the same with all scanners, or just your Heron one? (sorry, bit of a tech newbie) I really want to get around microlib as their scanners seem terribly overpriced, but I don't want to end up wasting my budget.

    Cheers!

    First, I think it will be useful it we connect these two posts.
    Eclipse.net Barcode Scanner?

    Second, have you ever use metrologic's product? How is the function?
