Barcode Scanner Requirements

To scan Vocera barcodes, you must use a scanner capable of reading and scanning Code 128 barcodes.

Many scanners are capable of reading and scanning Code 128 barcodes by default. Otherwise, you can configure the scanner to scan such barcodes. For information on how to configure your scanner to read and scan Code 128 barcodes, refer to your scanner's documentation.

When you scan a barcode, many scanners are preconfigured to automatically add a carriage return to move to the next field. If your scanner does not move to the next field, check your scanner documentation for instructions on how to configure the suffix or postamble character.
