Hardware Decoder Multi-Port Decoders for Bar Codes and Magnetic Stripes
decoder boxes offer the industry's premier
bar code and magnetic stripe reader capabilities. The ID
IDT9800 is a dual input keyboard
decoder with a small footprint and integrated cable. The ID
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
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 TECHs 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
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.
