IdTech Keyboard Wedge To USB Adapter Cable
Adapts your existing reader to USB input.
The IDT1231U adapter cable takes keyboard wedge output and converts it to USB/Keyboard input, allowing the connection of a standard keyboard interface device to the USB port of a host computer. By plugging the reader's 6 pin mini DIN connector into the adapter, and the other end of the adapter into one of the host's USB input ports, data from the reader will appear to the host as if entered via the keyboard. It is fully functional on a USB-equipped IBM PC or PC-compatible running Windows 98 or 2000, or on an Apple computer running Mac OS 8.1 and above.
Enables all programmable features.
Any ID TECH reader can be programmed using the ID TECH USB Setup Utility, which is available from the company’s website at www.idt-net.com. The Setup Utility allows you to enter commands through the keyboard, just as if the device were physically connected between the keyboard and the host computer. Instructions are available from the website as well.
Accommodates multiple mounting options.
If cable strain relief is desired, the PS/2 mini DIN connector housing is designed to accommodate a Velcro pad in a recessed portion of the flat bottom of the housing. There is also a recessed groove to accommodate a Tyrap as another strain relief option.
Works with other products.
This Keyboard to USB Adapter Cable is 30" long and designed to work with any ID TECH bar code or magnetic stripe reader that has a keyboard wedge interface. The adapter can also be used with other manufacturers' products that utilize a keyboard wedge interface.
