This article will assist you in connecting your Trackside Bluetooth QR Scanner to your Trackside Point of Sale with a cable. This method will charge the scanner as you use it.

If you ever need a replacement cable, these are easily replaced locally. You just need a cable that is USB Type-A on one side, and Type-B on the other, commonly referred to as a "Printer Cable." USB 2.0 should work fine, along with any standard after. You can get them in varying lengths also, just be aware that excessively long USB cables experience signal degradation and the scanner may not operate. 25ft should be a maximum.
