Overview and Tutorial

Barcode Scanner ASCII String Decoder Software decoding a UPS MaxiCode LabelThe Barcode Scanner ASCII String Decoder is a software application that decodes and reveals hidden, non-printable ASCII characters and commands from keyboard emulation devices, such as USB Barcode Scanners. The application is compatible with Windows® 95 and greater, including Vista, Windows 7 and 8.

It is useful in verifying commands such as FS, RS, GS, and EOT that are encoded in barcodes, because they are not normally revealed when the barcode is scanned. Symbols that include these characters include UPS MaxiCode, FedEx PDF417, DOD UID and other ISO/IEC 15434 Formats.

This product is easy to use. After installing the application, ensure the cursor is in the top text box. When the cursor is in this field, any input from keyboard emulation devices is duplicated in the lower text box. Information that is not normally visible is displayed between greater-than and less-than signs (tags) according to the ASCII function or value.

Support

Free product support may be obtained by reviewing public forum threads. Priority Support is provided for this software with the purchase of any IDAutomation product while the applicable Priority Support is active.

Common Issues:
  • Scanners that have Function Key Emulation enabled by default (such as the IDAutomation USB Scanner) will not decode lower ASCII characters until this feature is disabled. To disable this feature on the IDAutomation SC5USB Scanner, refer to the Keyboard Wedge and USB Keyboard Emulation section of the programming manual.
  • With some scanners, the lower ASCII option must be enabled in the scanner. Contact the scanner manufacturer or refer to the appropriate user manual for details. To enable this option in the USB 2D Barcode Imager, scan the barcode below:
    enable PQA in IDAutomation 2D scanner
  • Most barcode scanners include an ASCII 13 or <CR> command that may appear after the scanned data. If desired, this command may be disabled by removing or reassigning the suffix character to 00 which is the "null" character.
