The scanner does not transmit data when a bar code is decoded.
I have a keyboard wedge reader and I like to extend the reader cable upto 15 meter. It works fine for my old PC, but not anymore for my new PC.
The label is printed at a too high position. Can the scanhead be adjusted in order to read the bar code?

The scanner does not transmit data when a bar code is decoded.
  Check if you connected the communication cable to the PC's COM port. Do not connect the configuartion cable to you COM port. Thereafter check to which PC's COM port the communication cable is connected and check if this corresponds to your application's communication port settings. Also check on the label on the backside of the DLS2881, if the scanner has an RS232 or wedge interface. The RS232 version can not be used as wedge and visa versa.

  It is not guaranteed that keyboard extension cables will work properly. Problems can be expected when extension cables are too long. The cable acts as a filter affecting the communication between keyboard and computer. If this influence is too big, the communication will fail. The use of keyboard extension cables is dependent of the computer system. If there is really a need to have longer cables, an RS232 reader may be considered. Opticon has a software package called Tscan, which converts the data received on the COM port to keyboard data. So, the data from the RS232 reader is treated as keyboard input, and therefore the RS232 reader can be used like the keyboard wedge within any application too.

The label is printed at a too high position. Can the scanhead be adjusted in order to read the bar code?
  No, the scanhead in NSR120 is fixed.
