By default, this hardware component is set to operate in serial mode which means that it is supported by the serial interface port of the host computer system. It can also make use of the Universal Serial Bust interface port provided that the proper attachment is present. Unlike other device drivers which are usually installed after the hardware component is connected, the DataMan 7500 COM port requires that the device driver be installed first before it is attached to the appropriate port. Failing to follow this procedure may lock the host communication port preventing other software applications from accessing it. This means that there is a possibility that the associated program may not be able to retrieve the information that is being sent by this handheld scanning device. The device driver also allows the computer user to select a Virtual Wedge Mode wherein the hardware component can be set to keyboard wedge or Universal Serial Bus keyboard mode.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The device driver of the DataMan 7500 COM port supports the IDMax decoder module to ensure the best possible reading yield for the DPM codes. The implementation of an ultralight illumination system also makes it possible to generate readable images from virtually all types of marks. The device driver when properly installed allows the supported hardware component to distinguish between 1D and 2D code types. The IDM Reading software application that is supported by the device driver of the DataMan 7500 COM port allows for the handling of a variety of degradations that appear as codes. The type of technology that is implemented by this hardware component can be deployed in a wide range of industries including automotive, aerospace, information technology, and even national defense among others. One of the most common implementations of these types of hardware components and its corresponding device driver is in the field of security and authentication. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and DataMan 7500 COM port errors before installing any driver updates.
