Hi,

I need to connect a Barcode scanner via USB to my iX-Panel (iX T7A). This just works perfectly as long as the user manually sets Focus in the analog Input element. After scanning one Barcode, the Focus gets lost and the user has to click on the element again.
In my application this is just annoying, because of many scan processes.
Thus the question:
Is it somehow possible to grab the scanner Input via script in the Background and write it to variable
OR
can I set Focus manually via script to my analog Input element ?

Thanks for your help,

Stefan

How about using 'Text' instead of 'Analog Numeric'?
Then, assign the tag to that 'Text' to display your Barcode scanning result.

Hi guys

Well' I also try to connect a barcode scanner by usb to an iX Panel (T12B).
My problem is that m ypaneld doesn't get any data from the scanner.
How did you manage that? Do I need to "install" any kind of driver or does it matter whicht type/brand of scanner I take?

Best regards
