The USBX Worth Data Wedge Saver™ allows older legacy keyboard wedge bar code readers from such manufacturers as PSC, Metrologic, Symbol, Percon, and Worth Data to attach to a USB port. Users upgrading to new PCs or Macs that only have USB ports can use this device to bridge their older wedge readers with 6 pin mini din cable connection to their new USB computer system. This device powers up as a high power device to provide enough power for older power hungry bar code scanners.
The Wedge Saver will operate on any computer with a USB port running Windows® or Mac OS X - The Wedge Saver will attach to the computer as a USB keyboard device, and any bar code data will be transmitted to the computer as keyboard data - so it works with any application! The cost of a USBX is only $25.00 with free shipping to the USA!
We guarantee it will work or your money back, no questions asked!
Save That Old Wedge
Older keyboard bar code scanners can have new life on modern computers with this device. If your PC or Mac doesn't have the 6 pin mini din keyboard port and only has a USB port, you don't have to buy a new bar code reader. Now you can use your old PSC, Metrologic, Symbol or any other pc keyboard interface wedge reader and attach it to your USB only PC using the Worth Data Wedge Saver. Your wedge reader then appears to the system as a USB HID keyboard. Data is transmitted as keyboard data; exactly like keyboard wedge data!
So don't throw away that wedge reader. It may be worth several hundred dollars and may have several years life yet. For only $25.00, you can continue to use it with a USB port indefinitely.
If your PSC Laser Reader, Symbol Laser Reader, Metrologic Laser Reader or other manufacturers wedge reader cable already has a male 6 pin mini din connector, you can plug it directly into the Wedge Saver. The Wedge Saver requires the wedge reader to be configured to output AT keyboard key codes. If you have a splitter "Y" cable, the other end just dangles, or you can cut it off sharply.
If you have a older Worth Data wedge reader, or Worthington Data Solutions reader, (WDP, TriCoder, MagReader), you will plug in just the male end of the Worth Data Y-Cable to connect from the wedge reader into the Wedge Saver. The following Worth Data bar code scanners are compatible with the USBX Wedge Saver:
Once you plug the Wedge Saver into a USB port, Windows will sense the presence of a new USB HID "human interface device" and will install the driver for the new device or prompt you to select the standard driver. When you scan a barcode, the data comes across the USB interface as keyed data and input into any application wherever you place your cursor. Of course the USB keyboard remains interchangeably usable.
PSC Readers, Symbol Readers, and Metrologic Readers are all compatible with the USBX Wedge Saver
