Download Driver For Opticon Scanner Install Update
October 17, Keywords: Almost everything about the Opticon OPN barcode scanner is small. It comes in a small box with the drivers on a mini CD. The only thing not small about the OPN is it's capacity. It comes with KB of memory and can hold up to 10, barcodes. You can also forget about batteries. Unlike other portable barcode readers the OPN has a built in rechargeable battery which is recharged using the USB connection. The OPN is available for Windows only unfortunately.
Windows will install the scanner and you are ready to go. Note that the CD I received only contained Windows 32 bit drivers but the 64 bit drivers are available on the Opticon web site. Select OPN from the list to see all available drivers for the device. You can take the OPN with you in your pocket or hang it around your neck with the supplied cord. Take it to your bookshelves and scan away, there is no need to bring your books to your computer. To scan barcodes simple press the large button on the scanner.
Position the scanner so that the red line pases through the barcode. The scanner will beep to indicate a successful scan. When you are ready to upload scans into Readerware, plug in the scanner with the supplied USB cable.
To use the OPN with Readerware auto-catalog, start auto-catalog as normal and on the item input page of the wizard click on the Upload button. Select the COM port assigned to the scanner. On my Vista system the COM port is displayed when the scanner is plugged in. Now click on the Upload button, the scanner will beep to indicate successful communication and the barcode scans will be uploaded into Readerware.
You can optionally check the Clear scanner after upload box and Readerware will remove the scans after uploading. That is really all there is to it, the OPN is a very small scanner that can hold up to 10, barcodes.
Keep it in your pocket and scan wherever you are and then upload the scans into any Readerware product. It is a very nice affordable scanner. The OPN is a batch scanner. This means that you can scan while disconnected from your computer and later upload the scans into Readerware. But you cannot scan directly into Readerware while connected. So you could not search for a book in your Readerware database by scanning the barcode with your OPN If you need a single scanner that can scan in batch mode and while connected, consider the LaserChamp II scanner.
