  • Barcode reader 4.2

    Where do I put the product ID in version 4.2? In version 3.2 there was a start screen with a clearly labeled area to either paste the product ID or scan it in with a barcode scanner. I can't find where to do that with version 4.2.

    Thanks in advance.

    I got word back from Hexagon and the developers didn't like the way the barcode reader performed, so it was removed from 4.2. It will be re-written from scratch and is expected to be included in Inspect 5.0 that is scheduled to be released on 2/24. I hope that means Feb 24 and not Feb 2024.

      We just got Inspect 5.0 installed and now I see that you have to have the Inspect Automate License in order to use it. Does anybody know about how much that will cost us?

        We will shortly be updating Inspect 5.0 (Universal Updater and FTP) with a newer build which will restore the simple Search product id capability onto the home page. You will need to go to Inspect Settings, and turn on "Search Bar" in a Home Page Settings section. This search tool will be identical in capability to what existed in earlier versions of Inspect, and will continue to be included in the free "core" Inspect.

        The barcode add-on, part of the automate license, will offer the full barcode capabilities including :
        - Mapping any product id to any routine with simple "learn" capability.
        - Mapping multiple routines to a single product id, and simple routine filtered selection from matching id.
        - Overlay icons on tiles to show which routines have been associated to a barcode.
        - Automatic countdown/execute after identification.
        - Mask parts of product id to determine what to use on look up.
        - Extract parts of product id, and pass to PC-DMIS as trace variables.
        - Show trace on measurement summary page, for easy part identification.

        Thanks for using Inspect!

          Thanks. Do you have any idea how much the automate license is?

            I think it's around $2000, which includes not only the barcode, but the playlist/pallet and trace capabilties.

                  Once you have a version that supports the restored simple search, you need to enable it.

                  To do that, go to the Settings screen, and under Home Elements, turn on Search Bar:

                  The Home screen now shows a Product ID box:

                  In that box, you can paste the ID and press Enter to look up a product according to its ID:
