Would anyone have the software to re-connect my Quickscan QS5600BT to my PT300? The tester can see the scanner but barcodes are not transmitted to the tester.

Advice on how to install the software would also be greatly appreciated.

Hi Mal, thanks for the post.

The following is just from my knowledge and experience while using, supporting and configuring the PrimeTest 300 and 350. If anyone else has any experience of using 3rd party Bluetooth Scanners or indeed Printers with any of the Seaward PrimeTest rage, then please feel free to offer some advise.

I may be wrong, but I think you need to use a specific Bluetooth Barcode Scanner with the Seaward PrimeTest 300 and 350, and a quick call to Seaward in the UK confirmed this. If this is the case, then the Primetest may well be programmed to only Pair with the Seaward Bluetooth scanner.

It is not uncommon for manufacturers to configure Bluetooth Devices to only communicate with their own or licenced products, I believe a very well known mobile phone company (its green, round and has a bite taken from it) also build communication limitations into their phones via the Firmware and internal phone operating system.

You may want to check with one of your local Specialist Test and Tag Suppliers or contact your local Seaward representative for further information.

You mentioned that you are looking for software to re-connect your Bluetooth Scanner to the PrimeTest 300, have you had it working in the past?

You also referred to installing some software… The Bluetooth scanner and PrimeTest need to be paired and as you have mentioned, the PrimeTest 300 can see the scanner. Seeing the scanner is one thing, pairing with the scanner is another, only the PrimeTest Firmware and/or internal software will allow pairing to happen.

Datalogic will of course have configuration software that will enable you to change various settings on your Quickscan QS5600BT (I think it’s a Datalogic one). The software is only used configure the type of Barcodes that can be read, the communication settings, scanning distance etc.

As mentioned, the above is based on presumption, im guessing that the Seaward PrimeTest is only compatible with Seawards own Bluetooth Scanner, however hopefully someone will prove me wrong.

Regards Carl
