RS-232 Serial to Keyboard Driver

This Windows driver will take data from a serial ZBA Barcode Scanner and generates key strokes. Therefore barcode input to all programs you can type in is possible. We recommend to use the "SerialKeys" driver that comes with Windows, but if for some reason the Windows driver does not work, you may use our driver. Click here to download!


OLE for Retail POS (OPOS) Driver

This driver enables your ZBA Scanner to work with OPOS release 1.4 - 1.6 compliant application. Requirements: Windows 95/98/ME, Windows NT, Windows 2000, or other OLE/ActiveX compliant 32-bit operating system. Please also see FAQ for information about OPOS and ZBA driver. Click here to download!

A new version of the OPOS driver is now available! We have added support for the portable scanners Z-1110 and Z-1050! If you would like to integrate the portable scanners into your application we recommend trying the OPOS Driver Version 1.8.0. It has an easy-to-use ActiveX component that can be used as programming API for the communication between application and scanner. In the new installation there is also a help file included that is targeted to get you started quickly.

The distribution includes:

  • A configuration program to generate the OPOS device information.
    (Your application may require the use of a certain device name.)
  • The "Service Object" for communication with the scanner.
  • Public Scanner 0POS Common Control Object 1.6.001 (OCX component)
    for development of OPOS release 1.6 compliant applications.
