1) Apply power to the dock;
2) Insert the scanner(s) in the dock to start charging.
1) Download and install the USB drivers from Opticon. Then install on the PC by following the directions given by the Setup;
2) Apply power to the dock;
3) Connect the dock to the PC with the supplied USB cable;
4) Insert the scanner(s) in the dock and initiate comms from your application on the PC.
Virtual Communication Port (VCP):
Each postition in the dock where a scanner is inserted, the PC will create it’s own random VCP. Verify that the software on the PC side is able to handle this situation or else proper communication will fail.
SPC-2-### covers (where ### denotes the color) are specifically designed for use in conjunction with our ‘CMT-xSPC’ model docks, like the CMT-6SPC and the CMT-30SPC.
SPC-3-### covers (where ### denotes the color) are specifically designed for use in conjunction with our ‘CPN-xSPC’ model docks, like the CPN-6SPC and the CPN-30SPC.
By omitting the USB flap we ensure proper docking action, without the possibility of damaging the connectors on both dock- and scanner-side.
SPF covers a designed for stand-alone operation, without the use of a dock.
In this situation the flap covering the USB connector of the scanner adds even better protection.
The DOKKi covers are made from high quality silicone materials and fit the scanner seamlessly.
By removing the USB cover from the scanner dust and/or moist can penetrate the connector and opening(s) behind the USB cover more easily. It is also possible that the products’ IP rating has been altered too.
Other active USB devices (like an USB mouse and USB keyboard) are included in this number and will deduct from the maximum number of scanners that can be connected. Currently the best compatibility is seen using Windows 7.
2) USB chipset Windows driver: new Windows drivers (supplied by the USB chipset manufacturers) stop detecting/installing correctly at around 20 devices. Especially with USB 3.0 we’ve seen failure. USB 2.0 support is generally more successful.
Unfortunately there is no definitive list of what operates at full compatibility as there are almost endless combinations of USB chipsets, PC brands and drivers.
