Symbol Barcode Scanners and Arduino

Has anybody experience with Symbol RS232 barcode scanners and the arduino?

Are all scanners sending the data in the same format to the devices?

with Symbol RS232 barcode scanners

How about a link to the one you are talking about?

All RS232 models, like the P300 series

newuino: Are all scanners sending the data in the same format to the devices?

According to the data sheet no

• P 300STD: undecoded version of the scanner. • P 302FZY: decodes damaged or poorly printed bar codes; uses multi-interfaces of RS-232, Wand Emulation, Keyboard Wedge, and Synapse. • P 304PRO: scans one and two-dimensional bar codes; uses interfaces of RS-232 and Synapse. • P 304IMG: performs point-and-shoot image capture, outputs to digital formats of TIFF, JPEG, and BMP.

I have only ever used something like this that did keyboard emulation but it looks like the P 302FZY model will also send the decoded barcode as an RS232 string (probably ASCII). It is programmed using barcodes but the default is 9600,8,N,1

This means that I get plain readable an usable Numbers?

Probably yes for the 302FZY that has RS232 interface, for all other I would not like to guess.
