The Cyclone FX has the capability to automatically select and launch a programming image based upon a scanned barcode. This can generate an error if more than one image corresponds to the barcode or no images correspond to the barcode. The CYCLONE FX includes a way to quickly gain insight into the issue. A log file is created every time the barcode scanner operates and it details the scanned barcode as well as the analysis process used to select the appropriate programming image.

To access the barcode log, navigate in the Cyclone FX’s menu to: Menu->Status->Show Logs->Show Barcode Scanner Log. This Log document contains the details of the last barcode scanner transaction and is overwritten every time the barcode scanner is used.

A sample log file looks like this:
