LS2208 skip first and last character

LS2208 skip first and last character

LS2208 skip first and last character



I would like to set up my LS2208 scanner to skip first letter (if there it is) and simultaneously skip last letter. For example
there are 2 types:
first A2837463927
second type 2837463927B

Is there any way how to set it up, to allways scan as 2837463927?

Thank you

RE: LS2208 skip first and last character

Have you read through the various Manuals on the LS2208?
If so then you should know if programability in a manner like you need is even possible.

If not I'd suggest that you start there.

Regardless, what you want sounds like something more readily done in the software that receives the data from the LS2208.

You don't say if the recipient software is an off-the-shelf application or if it is an in-house developed application.
If in-house, then you are likely to have the means of eliminating whatever you want from the LS2208 data.
If off-the-shelf, your chances of getting a modification like that is dependent on how customizable the software might be and how 'open' the developers might be to introducing changes.

Good Luck,
