This support article provides instructions on how to pair the Scanfob 2006 Bluetooth barcode scanner with the BlueSnap standard Bluetooth to RS-232 adapter via SPP mode. For this tutorial, we will be configuring the Scanfob 2006 as the Bluetooth master and the BlueSnap as the Bluetooth slave. After you pair the Scanfob and the BlueSnap in this way, you can create a barcode of the BlueSnap's MAC address that you can scan (with the paired Scanfob 2006) any time you want to connect to the BlueSnap.
If you are switching from Bluetooth SPP to Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) due to a problem you're experiencing with SerialMagic Gears, make sure to clear out any previous connections within the SerialMagic Gears device manager before following these instructions; doing so increases the likelihood of success. If you are unsure how to do this, refer to our article on the process here: Remove Previous Connections from SerialMagic Gears . 1. Make sure your scanner's Bluetooth radio is off (the blue LED should be OFF/not blinking). If the blue LED/Bluetooth radio is currently ON, you can turn...

Barcodes (sometimes called barcode symbologies) are visual representations of data encoded in a machine-readable format that is recognized by the International Organization for Standards (ISO) and GS1 . Barcode symbologies — generally speaking — come in two forms: 1D (one-dimensional) and 2D (two-dimensional). 1D barcodes were the first type of barcode to be standardized and consist of white and black spaces of varying widths that depend on the specific symbology's standards. 2D barcodes were later introduced as a solution that could store a considerably larger amount of data...
MFi is Apple's licensing program for hardware and software specific to their iDevices . MFi , or Made for iOS (iPod/iPhone/iPad), in hardware like the Scanfob ® 3002i denotes a special Bluetooth connection mode called IAP . IAP is similar to SPP on Android — which allows a peripheral device to connect as a virtual COM port. This capability allows software developers to interface peripherals directly with their apps. Simulating a virtual COM port means that scans are sent faster and more reliably. Simulated COM ports have the additional benefit of being able to send special...

It is possible to set TAB as the suffix on Scanfob ® Brand barcode scanners. However, it's important to consider that there are some downsides to using the TAB character as a suffix. First of all, the ASCII TAB character is not the same as the TAB key found on a traditional keyboard. The ASCII TAB character can be interpreted in different ways by different applications. For example, pressing the TAB key in an internet browser typically moves your focus point to the next field. Sending the ASCII TAB character (from a barcode scanner) sends the equivalent of Ctrl + i , which opens the...

This article demonstrates the steps necessary to configure the BlueSnap Bluetooth to RS-232 adapter and a Serialio Scanfob Bluetooth barcode (or RFID) scanner for use with a Nikon D300S camera .
