Setting Up Barcode Scanners

Barcode scanners read barcode numbers and make locating products in Eyefinity Practice Management easy and accurate. Although you can use any barcode scanner programmed to read the Interleaved 2 of 5 format with Eyefinity Practice Management, the following barcode scanners were tested and are recommended:

  • Datalogic Gryphon GM4130 Wireless (Part #GM4130-BK-910K1 and
    Part #GM4130-WH-910K1)
  • Datalogic Heron HD3130 Wired (Part #HD3130-BKK1B and
    Part #HD3130-WHK1B)
  • Symbol LS2208-SR20007R-UR USB
  • NADAMOO 433Mhz Wireless
  • Inateck BCST-70 Wireless

The following barcode scanners have been discontinued, but are still supported:

  • Datalogic Heron D130 Wired (Part #901801013)
  • Metrologic Voyager MS9535 (Part #MK9535-79B538)

Ensure that you purchase the keyboard wedge interface (not the serial or any other interface) with your barcode scanner.

  • Eyefinity recommends that you consult with your hardware technician to properly set up your barcode scanner.
  • For more detailed information about a scanner, contact a support representative from the scanner’s manufacturer.
