Do I Need a Specific ZBA Scanner Configuration to Work with OPOS? : ZBA F A Q



Q: Do I Need a Specific ZBA Scanner Configuration to Work with OPOS?

No. All current retail ZBA scanners with RS232 interface will
operate with the ZBA OPOS control software. OPOS is based
on Microsoft's Component Object Model/ActiveX/OLE
technologies. Targeted at Microsoft's Win32-based operating
systems used at the POS: Windows 95, 98, Me, 2000, NT.
OLE controls expose properties, methods, and events to a
containing Application. The controls are invisible at run time,
and rely exclusively upon the containing application for
requests through methods and property "sets". Responses
are given to the application through method return values and
parameters, property "gets", and events. It supports all
current ZBA scanners connected through serial RS-232
connection to any PC based POS. An architectural drawing
follows which describes these relationships.
