The ScanCam connects to existing ports on your scanner that are normally utilized for hand scanners or connection of EAS devices. In some cases, we use both ports. If these ports are already in use, we have splitters available that will allow you to run your existing device and the ScanCam. Power for the ScanCam is typically provided by the AUX port. The positive scan signal from your scanner outputs on the EAS port in most cases. This is how the ScanCam knows an item was scanned. The current V5 ScanCam has the ability to detect RS232, EAS and the simulated return or enter key sent over USB when your scanner is configured for HID mode (with the addition of our USB module).
Please check our current product matrix and the status of the cable assembly required for connectivity. (Database updated 20th April 2016). We currently have four stock cables; two for Datalogic, one for Metrologic and one for NCR.
