Scanning with Internal Imager

Use the internal imager to capture barcode data.
To read a barcode, a scan-enabled app is required. The device contains the DataWedge app that allows the user to enable the scanner to decode barcode data and display the barcode content.
Imager decoding usually occurs instantaneously. The device repeats the steps required to take a digital picture (image) of a poor or difficult barcode as long as the scan button remains pressed.
To scan with the internal imager:
  1. Ensure that an application is open on the device and a text field is in focus (text cursor in text field).
  2. Point the exit window of the device at a barcode.
