AutoTrigger Manager

Note: To display only the features present on a particular device, select one or more filters from the SmartDocs bar below.

Overview

The AutoTrigger Manager (AutoTriggerMgr) is used to configure automatic scan-triggering, which initiates scanning when a scan target is brought within proximity of the device sensor. Performing such functions would otherwise be manual. Automatic scanning is useful for such applications as those for supermarket self-service, in which a customer uses a hand-held device to scan items as they are placed in a shopping cart or basket.

This CSP is currently supported only on Zebra PS20 devices.

Main Functionality

  • Set Trigger Mode as Automatic or Always On
  • Set target distance for automatic scan triggering

Trigger Mode

Controls the trigger mode of the device, and whether automatic functions are invoked. For example, this parameter can be used to automatically activate a scanning device when placed in a shopping cart, holster or other designated location. When trigger Mode is set to Off (option 0, the default), all scanning requires manual triggering by the device user.

Note: Supported on PS20 devices only.
