TC25 scanned image to a network folder

Hi,

I have an application that runs on a Windows PC. It looks at images and performs OCR and extracts text. This is currently working.

My question is, Is it possible to setup a Zebra TC25 Rugged SmartPhone (either using WAN, LAN, USB or Bluetooth) to send the results of scans (either an image or a bar code) to a network folder that I can then access from the Window App. I appreciate that if this is possible I may not be available straight out of the box and may involve some work. However, I just need to know if this is possible before I start trying to piece it together.

Any advice or pointers to documentation or examples that could help would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Hi,

Hi,

It is not possible to extract an image of the barcode from the TC25 imager (scanner).

To send the barcodes as text strings you have a couple of options:

- Use the DataWedge IP output plugin (https://techdocs.zebra.com/datawedge/8-0/guide/output/ip/) to send the data to an IP address.  Although that is designed to be used on conjunctions with a desktop tool to place the scan data in the clipboard or output as keystrokes.
- Write a custom app to upload the barcode data as required.  I have never tried to write data to a network folder from Android but I guess it must be possible.

Hi Darren,
Apologies for another question. I have downloaded and install the PC side of the DataWedge (IPWedge). Do you know where I can find the android version of DataWedge (IPOutput)?

Thanks in advance,
