The Main Screen

The Main Screen acts as the Operator’s Interface. The operator can choose the location where the scanned data is placed in the KvalCAM host. Feedback of the scanning process is displayed in a viewing window. See below for descriptions of the Main Screen. The host and KvalCAM version is visible in the window's title bar (top left).

Connection Status

The Link bar at the top of the window (just under the Main/Config tabs) displays the connection status of the Barcode Application. The connection status is color coded. The connection address path is also displayed. While connected the bar will be green, and red if disconnected.


If disconnected, verify that the KvalCAM host is running. If running the application locally, verify connections. If running by way of intranet, verify that the system is up and running.
