Socket's SocketScan software for Palm and Windows converts scanned bar code characters into virtual keystrokes so that any Palm or Windows application treats the characters as though they were typed on a keyboard.
SocketScan enables the creation of prefixes and suffixes, such as Tab or Carriage Return, to further eliminate keystrokes in the data collection process.
SocketScan SDK for both Palm and Windows CE available for developers who wish to control the scanner and resulting data from within their application.
This Battery Friendly solution draws only a few milliamps of current in standby mode, extending the battery life of your Pocket PC.
No extra batteries or special power adapter required. The SDIO In-Hand Scan Card gets power from the host Pocket PC.
