Request (use computer like Barcode Scanner)!?

Tags: 

Hi there,

I know the SambaPOS is great to print in file but what about it:

I need to send a number (PLU of article) to Fiscal device throught RS323 cable.

note:

The fiscal device has a port for Barcode Scanner RS232. What if a plug a cable direct from computer to device (replace barcode scanner with computer) and send data to fiscal from computer.

It will save me more than 500 euro, if it does not work I need to buy another fiscal printer.

That depends on your fiscal printer. Try preparing a template like you'll print barcodes on paper and send it to the port with port printer. That will be the port that you'll connect printer to computer. Enable test/demo mode on your printer and after few trials I think you'll find how you should do that. Port printers also supports two additional tags. <w> to wait 100ms. That might be useful to send between barcodes. Some devices requires that. Another one is <lb> tag to send line breaks. Some devices can also read quantity from barcode and they need additional line breaks to differ them other barcodes.

However I'm not sure if it is a good solution. I think most fiscal printers can read data from files. Some people integrated fiscal printers with that method. If you search forums you'll find some information.
