Guidelines for Integration for NCR RealPOS Scanners


This document provides general guidelines for configuring a current generation NCR RealPOS barcode scanner to work in a pre-existing non-NCR system. This commonly happens in a competitive scanner takeaway situation. The target audience is NCR technical sales specialists, and NCR professional service team members.
Current generation scanner classes include 7878, 7874, 7884, and 7893. This document does not address NCR handheld scanner classes 2356 or 7837.
Use the following general guidelines to configure an NCR scanner to work in a pre-existing system.


Existing Barcode Scanner Interface

Guideline

RS232

  • Configure NCR scanner for RS232 interface. Match existing POS RS232 communication parameters for speed, data bits, parity and duplex. See applicable NCR scanner User Guide.

  • Configure NCR scanner to match existing barcode symbologies required by the customer and the prefixes required by the POS. See applicable NCR scanner User Guide.




RS232

OPOS/JavaPOS



  • Configure NCR scanner for RS232 interface. Match existing OPOS/JavaPOS profile settings for RS232 communication parameters for speed, data bits, parity. See applicable NCR scanner User Guide.

  • Configure NCR scanner to match existing barcode symbologies required by the customer. See applicable NCR scanner User Guide.

  • If NCR OPOS/JavaPOS was not previously installed, CREATE new scanner profiles using NCR RSM/Le tool for Windows. For Linux modify the sample profiles in the “Config.xml” file installed in the /jpos/res directory.

  • Configure the scanner for the prefix/suffix required by OPOS/JavaPOS profile.

  • Recommended but optional: install and configure latest released version and patches for NCR OPOS/JavaPOS, Windows (RPSW) or Linux (RPSL).

Serial-Over-USB

  • Configure NCR scanner for NCR USB interface. See applicable NCR scanner User Guide.

  • Install NCR serial-over-USB driver (Digi). This is available from http://www.digi.com/support/productdetail?pid=2628&osvid=57&type=drivers.

Once at the site, you must choose your OS with the pull-down menu.

  • Configure NCR scanner to match existing barcode symbologies required by the customer. See applicable NCR scanner User Guide.

Serial-Over-USB

OPOS/JavaPOS



  • Configure NCR scanner for NCR USB interface. See applicable NCR scanner User Guide. OPOS/JavaPOS profile connection type should be “NCR USB”

  • Install NCR serial-over-USB driver (Digi) . This is available from http://www.digi.com/support/productdetail?pid=2628&osvid=57&type=drivers.

Once at the site, you must choose your OS with the pull-down menu.

  • Configure NCR scanner to match existing barcode symbologies required by the customer. See applicable NCR scanner User Guide.

  • If NCR OPOS/JavaPOS was not previously installed, CREATE new scanner profiles using NCR RSM/Le tool for Windows. For Linux modify the sample profiles in the “Config.xml” file installed in the /jpos/res directory.

  • Configure the scanner for the prefix/suffix required by OPOS/JavaPOS profile.

  • Recommended but optional: install and configure latest released version and patches for NCR OPOS/JavaPOS, Windows (RPSW) or Linux (RPSL).

IBM RS485

  • Configure NCR scanner for IBM RS485 interface (PM 103 S&R). Also apply the following program sequences:

    See applicable NCR scanner User Guide for more details.

  • Configure NCR scanner to match existing barcode symbologies required by the customer. See applicable NCR scanner User Guide.

  • Not supported by NCR OPOS/JavaPOS.







IBM USB

(IBM SurePOS HID)



  • Configure NCR scanner for IBM USB interface (PM 10D S&R). Also apply the following program sequences:


< Flash Off: PM 843 S&R>
See applicable NCR scanner User Guide for more details.

  • Configure NCR scanner to match existing barcode symbologies required by the customer. See applicable NCR scanner User Guide.




IBM USB

(IBM SurePOS HID)

OPOS/JavaPOS


  • Configure NCR scanner for IBM USB interface (PM 10D S&R). Also apply the following program sequences:

    See applicable NCR scanner User Guide for more details.

  • Configure NCR scanner to match existing barcode symbologies required by the customer . See applicable NCR scanner User Guide.

  • If NCR OPOS/JavaPOS was not previously installed, CREATE new scanner profiles using NCR RSM/Le tool for Windows. For Linux modify the sample profiles in the “Config.xml” file installed in the /jpos/res directory.

  • Select OPOS/JavaPOS profiles for conversion of “LabelID”. Default is IBM. Other options are NCR or None. Special conversions can be done as a SCER.

  • Recommended but optional: install and configure latest released version and patches for NCR OPOS/JavaPOS, Windows (RPSW) or Linux (RPSL).

PS/2 Keyboard Wedge

  • Configure NCR scanner for PS/2 keyboard wedge (only supported on 7884 and 7893),

(PM 10E2 S&R). See applicable NCR scanner User Guide.

  • Configure NCR scanner to match existing barcode symbologies required by the customer. See applicable NCR scanner User Guide.

  • Not supported by NCR OPOS/JavaPOS.

USB Keyboard HID

  • Configure NCR scanner for USB keyboard HID (PM 10E3 S&R). See applicable NCR scanner User Guide.

  • Configure NCR scanner to match existing barcode symbologies required by the customer. See applicable NCR scanner User Guide.

  • Not supported by NCR OPOS/JavaPOS.





Special Considerations: OPOS/JavaPOS


NCR scanners are rarely compatible with competing Datalogic, Honeywell, etc. OPOS/JavaPOS service objects.

NCR scanners may work with IBM JavaPOS via IBM USB but vendor specific DirectIO will not be supported.

NCR recommends customers use NCR OPOS/JavaPOS. .
Scanner communication settings should match the OPOS/JavaPOS profile communication settings including prefix/suffix. Scanner Label IDs must be enabled for OPOS/JavaPOS “scanDataType” property to be updated correctly.

NCR OPOS/JavaPOS not applicable


- NCR OPOS/JavaPOS packages are available at

http://www5.ncr.com/support/support_drivers_patches.asp?Class=External/SelfServPlatform\display
Also at the link above is the NCR Retail Controls 3.x User Guide.
** Windows NCR OPOS/JavaPOS install package is Retail Platform Software for Windows (RPSW).

- RPSW profiles have a choice of Service to use when the profile is CREATED using RSM/Le tool.,“NCR78xx.Scanner” or “NCROposSO.Scanner”. “NCR78xx.Scanner” is the legacy version 2.x of NCR OPOS/JavaPOS. “NCROposSo.Scanner” is the version 3.x service that supports IBM USB HID mode in addition to serial.


** Linux NCR JavaPOS install package is Retail Platform Software for Linux (RPSL).

  • RPSL profiles have only one choice of Service to use when the profile is CREATED, “NCROposSO.Scanner”. See the “Config.xml” file installed in the ./jpos/res directory for sample profiles.


** Linux Digi virtual COM Port Driver notes.

NCR kernels are configured with this driver compiled as a kernel module. The path to the driver is: /kernel/drivers/usb/serial/digi_acceleport.ko>.


The kernel must be configured with USB_SERIAL_DIGI_ACCELEPORT. This link provides the documentation noted below: <http://how-to.wikia.com/wiki/How_to_configure_the_Linux_kernel/drivers/usb/serial> .


  • Option: USB_SERIAL_DIGI_ACCELEPORT



Say Y here if you want to use Digi AccelePort USB 2 or 4 devices, 2 port (plus parallel port) and 4 port USB serial converters. The parallel port on the USB 2 appears as a third serial port on Linux. The Digi Acceleport USB 8 is not yet supported by this driver.

This driver works under SMP with the usb-uhci driver. It does not work under SMP with the uhci driver.

To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called digi_acceleport.


Special Considerations: Symbology IDs (Label IDs)


Label IDs are characters in the barcode data that identify the barcode type. OPOS/JavaPOS use Label IDs to update the scanDataType property. NCR scanner default configuration has Label IDs enabled for serial, USB virtual COM port and IBM USB.
For existing installations where the NCR Scanner is replacing another vendor scanner, see “Special Considerations: OPOS/JavaPOS. For existing installations not using OPOS/JavaPOS, the NCR Scanner configuration changes for specific Label IDs may need to be done to match existing application expectations.
Not applicable to IBM RS485, PS/2 Keyboard Wedge, USB Keyboard HID.

Special Considerations: NCR Serial-Over-USB Driver


NCR RealPOS barcode scanners configured for NCR USB interface require the correct serial-over-USB driver. This driver makes the USB-connected NCR scanner appear as a serial COM port.


Operating System

NCR Serial-Over-USB Driver

Windows

Install NCR serial-over-USB driver (Digi). This is available from http://www.digi.com/support/productdetail?pid=2628&osvid=57&type=drivers.

Once at the site, you must choose your OS with the pull-down menu.
