    Connection between ZT410 and Cognex Reader using ZBI 2.1

    Januszewski Leszek

      Hello,

       

      I'm trying to print label with data sent from Cognex barcode reader.

      First I was trying to use ZPL, but data from Cognex (configured to use RS232 port / connected to USB) is 32 character long, and function ^FN can only use 20 chars (maximum length of data which can be displayed/entered). So my data was truncated to 20 chars.

      Now I'm trying to use ZBI, but after opening serial port (open #2: name "SER") when I try to receive data from scanner (input #2: A$) i have nothing. Program stays at input line. When I try to run program at virtual printer everything is ok. Data from reader have termination CR/LF.

      Anyone here have similar problems with barcode readers?

       

      Best Regards,
