Overview

The Remote Scanner Manager (RemoteScannerMgr) is used to monitor, configure and apply firmware updates to a supported Zebra Bluetooth scanner from a Zebra device running Android 5.1 (Lollipop) or higher.

Support for the DS3678 scanner requires MX 6.3 or higher.

Main Functionality

  • Update the firmware of a connected scanner (file downloaded separately)
  • Perform the following functions on a paired RS6000 or DS3678 scanner:
    • Apply a Scan123 config file (downloaded separately)
    • Cycle the power on the scanner
    • Initiate a device-location LED/sound sequence
    • Disconnect the scanner
    • Unpair the scanner
  • Specify the serial number of a device on which to perform an action

Action

Used to specify an Action to initiate a management function on remote Bluetooth scanners paired with and connected to the device. If performing a firmware update or other file-related function, file(s) must first be acquired using File Manager, StageNow, a compatible MDM solution or other means. Support for the Zebra DS3678 scanner requires MX 6.3 or higher.

Scanner Serial Number

Used to specify the serial number of a scanner on which to perform an Action. This parameter can be used to verify that a scanner identified by its serial number is the unit that is currently connected. The Action will be performed only if the specified serial number matches that of the currently connected scanner (or if this parameter is left blank or not present in the XML). If the specified serial number does not match that of the connected scanner, no action will be performed and an error will be returned to the Result XML.
