LONG DOCUMENT, read past the screen shots.

  1. Install MXConnect from Google Play Store
  2. Install DataMan Quick Setup
  3. Update Scanner to firmware 5.5.4_sr3_tp2 in the DataMan Setup app.
    • To do this, you need to go to "Device Settings" in the DataMan Quick Setup app with the Cognex scanner attached.
    • Under Device Settings, click "Firmware update", and then scroll down to "Unreleased Firmware", and select "5.5.4_sr3_tp2" and install.
  4. Reset Scanner to factory defaults
  5. Install Warehouse100 latest version from the Scanco Portal.

If you want the scanner to never sleep, that option will need to be re-enabled after the factory reset, and no other system barcodes should be scanned. The factory reset will set it in place with everything it needs, as our app has the newest SDK implemented.

 

We have added a Settings page to configure Cognex scanners on android using the new SDK v2.0 from Cognex. To activate, touch the battery icon for the scanner (not the pistol grip battery if present)
