ID TECH Hardware Decoder Multi-Port Decoders for Bar Codes and Magnetic Stripes

ID TECH decoder boxes offer the industry's premier bar code and magnetic stripe reader capabilities. The ID TECH IDT9800 is a dual input keyboard decoder with a small footprint and integrated cable. The ID TECH IDT8800 is a multi-input keyboard, serial and terminal wedge which offers an external serial port, three track magnetic stripe reading, and powerful data editing emitting capabilities. This unit can easily be programmed through bar code menus, cloning from other units, and Windows 95 Utility software.

IDT Multi-port Decoders for Bar Codes and Magnetic StripesDecodes quickly and reliably.
With its combination of magnetic stripe and bar code decoding capabilities, a multi-port decoder from ID TECH is especially suited for the high-performance demands of point-of- sale environments. ID TECH’s signature “on the fly” bar code decoding technology delivers unparalleled performance and value.

Edits and formats data.
Either decoder can be programmed to divide, rearrange, and edit fields of scanned data, as well as add preambles and postambles. Both units are compatible with a wide range of host computers. The Series 88 is a great value for RS-232 terminal interface applications, while the Series 98, which comes with its own attached cable, is excellent for keyboard wedge applications.

Supports multiple scanning devices. The Series 98 has two input ports to accommodate up to two scanning or reading devices in a variety of combinations. The Series 88 has two universal ports and a serial input port, so the same unit can support two laser or CCD scanners, as well as a magnetic stripe reader.

Configures easily using bar code menus.
Both decoders come with menus that allow you to configure either unit by simply scanning the appropriate bar codes. Selectable parameters, such as scan verification, language select, and baud rate, can be set instantly, as can magnetic stripe options, such as the specific tracks to be read.
