Is there any way to switch camera with Optical Barcode Scanner (the same way we can do with “USB Camera Widget”? Our use case is to avoid Barcode Scanner as we already use a camera https://www.dino-lite.eu/index.php/fr/ on workbench
The feature set of Optical Barcode Scanner is pretty limited. This is because it was built mostly with testing in mind. This way you don’t have to have a barcode scanner to scan a work order for example.
In production operation, a normal camera, even a macro one like you linked is not going to do a great job reading barcodes. If you’d like to avoid a handheld scanner, I would recommend a purpose built camera. We support two right now from the Cognex Dataman series. 60s and 262. Otherwise you’ll be much better off with a handheld.
Hope that helps!
What barcode formats are supported for the optical barcode scanner ? I got 3of9 to work, anything else?
