Skorpio X5 as "dumb" barcode scanner

Is there a way to use a Skorpio X5 as a “dumb” barcode scanner attached to a host computer via USB or Bluetooth? In other words, to the host computer, the barcode scanner should appear as a keyboard. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Hello @Edward_Rios
Datalogic Skorpio X5 and the other Datalogic Mobile devices cannot be connect to a PC as an HID (
human interface device, like standard Keyboards or mouses).

However to better discuss your need and evaluate possible alternative solutions, we invite you to get in contact with the nearest Datalogic office or open a tech request via the company’s tech support portal available here.
