Perhaps a long shot but I hope somebody is able to help me out on this one.
I got two items from a supermarket owner who was cleaning out his basement.
It's a Vertical Barcode scanner VS1200 and a Customer display Tec FIUT-70 (it would be nice to be able to use them in a future Arduino project).
Unfortunately he didn't have any cables, documentation or power supplies for this equipment. Searching the web I was able to find some info on the scanner, but none of the info included the interface or power connector pin outs.http://ftp.perimatic.fr/psc.cd/html/manuals.htm#VS1200
From the documentation I was able to retrieve the power requirements of the scanner (+5V@1A, +12V@0.8A, -12V@0.2A
), but as mentioned, no pin-out. I'v also seen references to Y-cables but againg no (schematic) details.
The customer display is more of a mystery since I didn't get any hits related to this item.
The only thing I know about it is that is supposed to run on 24V DC and by judging the info on most other (brand) displays it's possibly capable of forwarding data to a printer.
After opening the display I did a search on some of the components, but only could find data about the two VDF drivers. The VDF's are 16 char 5x7 dot-matrix and 20 char 5x7 dot-matrix.
The type numbers might be on the back of the displays but I don't like to desolder them with the risk of damaging them.
I've put some bigger pics on my website hoping they will assist in shedding some light on these two devices.http://www.xs4all.nl/~hmario/arduino/Misc/
What I would like to know:
For the barcode scanner:
- What is the pin-out of the Barcode scanner power plug.
- What is the pin-out of the 26-pin connector (the RJ45 connector won't be used by me but info is welcome)
- Any details about the Y-cable
For the customer display:
- What is the pin-out and purpose of connector CN1 (labeled FIU)
- What is the pin-out and purpose of connector CN2 (labeled RIU)
- Any details on the communication protocol.
Any help/info is much appreciated.
