Introduction

Barcode reader or barcode scanner is now available in many different types including the simple pen wand, CCD, camera-based, and laser.

A laser scanner is currently the most versatile one; it can be used as hand-held (portable) or stationary device and it does not have to be really close to the bar code to retrieve and read data.

The Inateck Wireless Bluetooth Barcode Scanner BCST-10 is a laser scanner that connects to computer or smartphones either via Bluetooth or USB cable. Also equipped with 1500mAh Lithium-Ion battery, the scanner can stay in standby state for more than 6 months.

Compatibility

If you are using a barcode reader for POS (point-of-sale) scanner, the Inateck BCST-10 offers good compatibility options that you can pair it with computers running either Windows OS or Mac OS.

If you use an Android or iOS device, it is also possible to pair it with the scanner via Bluetooth. When using a device with Android 4.0 or above, this scanner can be connected directly without any additional app necessary.

For other versions of Android, the scanner will be listed as a Bluetooth keyboard when paired; it is the same case with iOS devices such as iPhone and iPad.

In some cases, you may find it a bit confusing to figure out that the scanner is listed as keyboard. However, this is what the HID (Human Interface Device) means; your scanner will deliver input to computer as if it is a common peripheral such as keyboard, joystick, or mouse.

Inateck BCST-10 fortunately includes an SPP mode, which can be useful to separate its function from the real keyboard attached to your computer. Especially when used with POS machine, SPP mode allows for simpler operation.

Offline Mode

Another good thing from this scanner is the Offline Mode. When you have to work outside of your device’s Bluetooth range, Inateck BCST-10 can operate independently and store all the scanned information in its internal memory for later uploading.

The entries are stored permanently in the scanner and will be automatically erased after they are uploaded or manually deleted by scanning the appropriate code listed in the manual instruction.

Scanned barcodes will still be stored in the internal memory even when the scanner is turned off. It can store up to thousands of data entries in Offline Mode.

To prevent data loss due to unexpected power failure of the working stations or unstable Bluetooth connectivity, it is probably best to activate Offline mode all the time.

Of course, you will have to manually upload the entries, but it is considered safer. All the data entries scanned during Offline Mode can be uploaded at one time; if you scan 100 barcodes in Offline Mode, all of them can be uploaded with a press of a button.

Setup

Inateck BCST-10 only has one button to turn it on/off, enter setup, and save configuration. The instruction manual lists quite a lot of barcodes to access various settings and functions.

Below every barcode, there is a clear label to show you what the barcode is for. Pairing via Bluetooth, Offline Mode, Manual Upload, Applying or Not Applying Suffix, and using SPP mode can be accessed by scanning barcodes listed in the manual.
