On the following tabs you will find instructions on, 1) how to install/setup the Magellan's drivers, as well as 2) the necessary Soft1 configuration.
Install the Magellan's drivers by following the steps below:
Through Soft1 Portal > Common area > Scales > Magellan 8400, download the oposdriver.zip and unzip it. (Download the Magellan8400.dll file as well, which you will need later for Soft1 configuration).
Run the Datalogic OPOS 1_14_159.msi file and on the question «Install the Control Objects?», select Yes (typical). Right after the installation, two .exe files will be created; DualTest and OPOS Editor.
On OPOS Editor, configure the Port settings, as in the example and then set the COM Port according to the device manager. The "Units" option should be set to "Metric", to display kilos on the scale.
Restart your PC.
Scan a barcode and weight a Stock Item (Red Weight button) to check if the DualTest.exe is properly running.
Through Soft1 Portal > Common area > Scales > Magellan 8400 download the Magellan8400.dll file and copy it in the directory of the application's files.
In the .XCO file (Application section) add the line: ADDON=Magellan8400.dll
Add in your Personal Menu the job with the general parameters of Magellan8400. Right-click to create a new job and customize it as follows:
Press <OK>, and right-click to <Save as Personal User menu>.
Check if the DualTest.exe is placed on the default path, otherwise, replace it properly through the form.

In case you select to manually start/shut down the DualTest.exe, you (the user) should follow the steps below:

In the scenario that the DualTest can not be connected to Magellan, you can restore Magellan to factory settings, by scanning the barcode of the image and resetting the electricity.
