How to start RS507 decoding by sending SSI command?

I have to use RS507 Bluetooth scanners connected to my computer through  a Bluetooth hub. The Bluetooth hub is master, the RS507s are in SSI mode. I want to send SSI commands to the scanners to read barcodes. The Bluetooth hub can pass though SSI messages between the scanners and my computer.

 

I tried to send following commands by C++ ( I have put the commands and checksum in byte array )

 

Scan_Enable

Start_SCAN_Session

AiM_ON

 

Is there a document to describe this? I checked SSI programmers guide, but there is only general information not for RS507.

 

Please help me. Thanks in advance.

 

Best regards,

I don't know the answer to

I don't know the answer to your specific question,  but you might want to try updating the firmware on your RS507 if it is not behaving as you expect.  I know the original versions worked well with our CE and Windows Mobile based devices, but I think you may need updated firmware to talk reliably to other devices.

Here's a link to an older firmware update.  The reason I share this is that this is where you can find the PC firmware updater tool.

Hi Dan,

Thank you very much for the help.

I tried to download the latest firmware, but I am not entitled. Could you please give me permission to down load it?

The SN for the RS507 is :13289000501877.

Best regards,

Laurence
