This interface type is used to attach the scanner between the keyboard and host computer. The scanner translates the bar code data into keystrokes. The host computer accepts the keystrokes as if they originate from the keyboard.

The scanner de-asserts RTS when the transmission is complete. RTS/CTS Option 1 RTS/CTS Option 2 When Option 2 is selected, RTS is always high or low (user-programmed logic level). However, the scanner waits for CTS to be asserted before transmitting data.
