Pairing the scanner

  1. Press and hold the power button until the light turns blue, and it beeps twice (a low beep followed by a high beep).

2. Your Socket barcode scanner is now turned on. Scan the below barcode to enable iOS mode.
The scanner will beep 3 times to confirm that the mode has been changed.

Note: Try to scan the barcode directly from the screen, but if the scanner does not beep, print this page and scan it from the page. This barcode will also be available in the Socket Mobile Scanner manual.

3. Go to the Master iPad Settings > Bluetooth and turn on Bluetooth.

4. When the barcode scanner (Socket CHS) is discovered by the iPad, it will appear on the list. Tap to connect.

5. The scanner is now ready! 

To test the scanner, open Abacus and scan a product. If you scan a barcode registered in Abacus, it will be added to the order.

Note: You can make the scanner automatically add new products for barcodes that have not been registered in Abacus by going to Settings > System > General and enabling Create New Product with Scanned Product Code Not Found in System

Unpairing the scanner

  1. Tap the i icon and 'Forget This Device'
  2. Press and hold the two top buttons on the scanner until you hear 3 descending tones.
  3. The scanner is now unpaired



If the barcode scanner is appearing in the Bluetooth list on your iPad but not connecting:

  1. Unpair the scanner (see Unpairing the scanner above)
  2. Pair the scanner again (see Pairing the scanner above)

Still disconnecting?

When left inactive for a prolonged period of time, the Socket Mobile scanner will go to sleep and disconnect from Abacus. To reconnect the Socket Mobile scanner to Abacus:

  1. Ensure that Abacus is active (not asleep)
  2. Turn off Auto-Lock on the iPad
  3. Power on the scanner
  4. Within 30 seconds, the scanner will automatically reconnect. It will emit a single beep when it is connected.
