Setting Up Scanning

Empower can be set up to scan either QR Codes or barcodes (type 39 or 128 barcodes).

In the factory version, scanning a barcode or a QR code with a Job number can start a Task with that Job number.

To set up barcoding, from the Main Management Menu go to Tools > Settings.


Clicking on the Advanced button (highlighted above) displays a number of additional advanced options.

Ensure that Allow Barcoding is set to On (as displayed below) and click on the Save button.


Note that only an Administrator can alter this setting.
