Scan engine settings: Scandit

Last updated July 26th, 2023

Knox Capture Scandit Edition has all of the same scan engine settings as Samsung Knox Capture. See the Configure scan engine settings page for a list of common settings.

The following settings are only available in Knox Capture Scandit Edition:

Barcode types

Type Options
Numeric-only (1D) Codabar, Code 11, Code 25, Code 32, DataBar 14, DataBar Limited, EAN13, EAN8, Interleaved 2 of 5, MSI-Plessey, UPCA, UPCE
Alpha-numeric (1D) Code 128, Code 39, Code 93, DataBar Expanded, KIX, RM4SCC
2D Aztec, Data Matrix, DotCode, MaxiCode, MicroPDF417, Micro QR, PDF417, QR

Scan settings

Setting Description Options Default
Remove checksum Global setting to remove checksums for barcode data for all barcode types. ON/OFF OFF
Parse GS1 If enabled, parses scanned barcode data based on the GS1 data format before sending it to the target business app. For more information on the GS1 standard, refer to GS1 General Specifications. ON/OFF OFF

Extended barcode type settings

Use these settings to configure each barcode type used in a Knox Capture profile. Access these settings by tapping Advanced settings near the bottom of the scan engine settings menu, then tap Extended barcode type settings to display a list of all barcode types. To view the settings menu for a particular barcode type, tap its name. The following table describes the possible barcode type settings that may appear:

Setting Description Options Default
Min. length Determines the minimum supported barcode length (active symbol count) to decode. Change this property to include lengths not enabled by default, or to optimize decoding performance for a certain number of symbols. Character-to-symbol mapping depends on barcode type. For example, some barcodes include additional checksum characters in their symbol counts. For more information on active symbol count, refer to Configure the Active Symbol Count. Depends on barcode type.
Max. length Determines the maximum supported barcode length (active symbol count) to decode. Depends on barcode type.
Inverted color recognition Enables recognition of inverted barcodes that have been printed using bright ink on a dark background. ON/OFF OFF
Reduced quiet zone-size Enables scanning codes with smaller than normal quiet zones (white space before and after the code) than allowed by the barcode type specification. Use this if you experience issues when scanning codes that violate quiet zone specifications. Please note that turning on this feature may lead to false positive scans in some cases. ON/OFF OFF
Strip leading FNC1 Removes the leading FNC1 character that indicates a GS1 code. ON/OFF OFF
Direct part marking mode Improves scan performance when reading direct part marked (DPM) Data Matrix codes. Please note that this setting increases frame processing times. Samsung recommends restricting the scanning area to a smaller portion of the screen for better performance when using direct part marking mode. ON/OFF OFF
Checksum mod n

Barcode checksums use a piece of barcode data and a checksum algorithm to ensure data transmission integrity. Some barcode types include a mandatory checksum, while others only have optional checksums. Enforcing an optional checksum helps reduce false positives and provides an extra layer of error prevention. When enabling a checksum, ensure your barcode data includes the calculated checksum, otherwise the checksum will not match and the barcode data is discarded. Uses and enforces a modulo n checksum algorithm.

Full ASCII support Interprets Code39 data using two symbols per output character to encode all ASCII characters. ON/OFF OFF
Double checksum mod n Uses and enforces a double checksum modulo n. ON/OFF OFF
Remove leading zero Removes the leading zero digit from EAN13/UCPA scanned barcode data. ON/OFF ON
Return as UPCA Transforms UPCE scanned barcode data into its UPCA representation. ON/OFF OFF
Remove leading UPCA zero Removes the leading zero digit from scanned barcode data if Return as UPCA is enabled. ON/OFF OFF
