Tulip + Scanners = How do they work?

Is there a good reference available to answer the following questions?

How does TULIP interface with this scanner ( Honeywell 1900G-SR)?

Can you show me an example?

What barcode formats, how the data is collected into TULIP, etc.

I’m trying to convince my work to purchase that scanner for our factory… but they are asking for a lot of specifics.

hello @ashchav20, thanks for posting!!

there are a series of resources I’d recommend to get started:

below are some answers to your questions:

as you can see in the first link, the Honeywell 1900G-SR is supported out of the box, so you shouldn’t have any issues.

once the Barcode is connected, you can use the Barcode Scanner Output in a Trigger and use the data being Output any way you’d like:

as long as the Barcode Scanner can scan the barcode, it should scan in Tulip. the data can be used any way you’d like in Tulip: store it to a Table Record, App Variable, Message, SMS Message, etc…
