Below are instructions for pairing your Zebra (formerly Motorola) RS507 Hands Free Barcode Imager to a Zebra MC55A via Bluetooth. This will then allow you to use the RS507 to scan data into our TracerPlus mobile software running on a Zebra barcode terminal.
- Clean Boot the RS507 by removing the battery, holding in the Restore Button, replace the battery while still holding the Restore Button releasing after it beeps twice.
- On the MC55A, navigate to Start-->BTScannerCtlPanel.
- Enable the BTScanner1 checkbox and then select a Com Port.
- Click Save which will return you to the home screen.
- Navigate to Start-->BT Information and click Generate Local BD Address Barcode.
- Scan this barcode with the RS507 and you should receive some confirmation beeps as it attempts the Bluetooth connection.
- Click Yes to the Bluetooth Dialog that pops up on the MC55A.
- If prompted, enter a pin of 12345 and click Next.
- Click Done after it connects and then click OK on the remaining windows to return to the home screen.
- On the home screen of the MC55A click the DataWedge option.
- Enable the DataWedge by clicking the Running option (If DataWedge is already running you will need to stop it and then restart it).
- Click the Basic Configuration option.
- Click Scanner Input, click Bluetooth SSI Scanner Driver, and then click Enabled.
- Click Back two times and then Exit.
- Click OK to close DataWedge.
- You should now be able to scan barcodes into your MC55A using the RS507 and our TracerPlus mobile software.
**Note: This procedure should work on most Zebra mobile barcode scanners and not limited to just the MC55A.
