Tera EVHK0001-1 1D Wireless Barcode Scanner (EV0004-1 )


Programming The Tera 1D Barcode Scanner

 - This process has been tested to work with both Cloud and On Premises installations. 

To program the STX prefix, download and print the following PDF. 


  1.  Scan the Symbol Insertion barcode.
  2.  Scan the All Types barcode.
  3.  Scan the Group 1 barcode.
  4.  Scan the Barcode Before barcode.
  5.  Scan the 002 STX barcode.
  6.  Scan the Save Settings barcode

This MUST be done in this exact order, or you will have to start over. 

If you are unable to program the scanner using the above PDF, the same information can be found in the programming manual pdf below, on pages 18 (PDF page 22) and 38 (PDF page 43). 


If you are running Windows 10 you will also need to open a command prompt by running it as administrator. 


Then  click on the icon at the top left corner and select properties. 


Now place a checkmark into the box next to Use Legacy Console and click OK. 


close and re-open the command prompt.  

Scan a barcode (NOT one of the ones from the programming sheet) You should see something like this: 


What you are looking for is that the scanner scanned a ^B before the barcode and it translates to a little smiley face character on the next line. If this is what you see, you have correctly programmed the barcode scanner. 

System Five Setup

Setting up your Barcode scanner in System Five is the last step. You must ensure that the device itself is properly configured with the Pre amble and Post amble characters that will not conflict with either System Five or the Windows (TM) Operating System. The Barcode Reader page in the Setup Wizard provides a method of using the actual device to input the configuration.  


Assuming that your Barcode Scanner is properly configured, click [Read Barcode Scanner], scan any Barcode you have available and System Five will intercept the information from the scanner and fill in the Pre-Amble and the value of the Barcode you scanned. Click [Save Settings] to complete the process.  

The [Default Pre-Amble Setting] button can be used to reset to the System Five default settings.
