The Two Main Types Of Scanners
Scanners compatible with ClubReady can be categorized into 2 types. Input & Read Only
ClubReady offers two methods of Check-In that require two different types of scanners.
One is a web based kiosk (runs in a web browser) and requires a 'keyboard wedge with carriage return' scanner - Input Scanner
The other runs as an installed application on the club's PC - The ClubReady Desktop Application - requires a serial RS232 scanner assigned to a COM port - Read Only Scanner
Please follow this LINK for detailed comparison of the 2 methods of check-in.
*Important Note* - several of these scanners can be programmed to operate both ways - ONCE PROGRAMMED FOR ONE TASK THEY WILL NOT PERFORM THE OTHER TASK without resetting scanner back to factory default and programmed for the task at hand.
1. Input Scanner
The 'keyboard wedge with carriage return' scanner can be used to input barcode data into ClubReady for both POS product setup and barcode data for members/staff accounts. It can be used to scan products in the POS itself. It can also be used with the web kiosk method of check-in.
The 'keyboard wedge with carriage return' scanner CANNOT be used with the ClubReady Desktop Application.
The 2 supported 'keyboard wedge with carriage return' scanners:
Honeywell Genesis 7580G-2 - USB scanner that will read barcodes on smartphones and must be configured for "carriage return" (CR) - Please follow this LINK for instructions on how to Add CR Suffix bar code
Honeywell Voyager MK9520-32A38 - USB scanner that is a 'keyboard wedge with carriage return' scanner out of the box. - will NOT read smart phones
2. Read Only Scanner
The ClubReady Desktop Application requires a scanner that is programmed as a COM port (RS232). It will NOT input data into the system and is on 'stand by' at all times waiting for check-ins.
