Cordova Honeywell Captuvo Plugin

This is a Cordova/Phonegap plugin to interact with Honeywell Captuvo sled for iPhones, iPod Touches and iPad Minis ( The plugin works by interacting with the native SDK provided by Honeywell to handle barcode scans and magstripe reads.

NOTE 1: the SL62 has a different SDK that needs to be swapped out in this plugin

NOTE: this plugin includes version 2.13.611 of the SL42 SDK. You must independently agree to the EULA from HoneyWell.

This plugin is compatible with plugman. To install, run the following from your project command line: $ cordova plugin add

To Use:

Register for callbacks for barcode scanning and/or magnetic stripe reads:

   document.addEventListener("deviceready", function(){ 

           console.log("Barcode scanned: " + barcode);

           //TODO: handle barcode/label type
       //This function will send the first readable track
            //track 1 uses carets as dividers (NOTE: won't work if track 2 is read)
            if (track.indexOf("%B") == 0) {
              track = track.split('^');

              var cc = {
                 number : track[0].substr(2), //strip leading %B
                 name : track[1].trim(),
                 expr : '20' + track[2].substr(0,2) + '-' + track[2].substr(2,2)
            } else {
              //handle track 2

Document level events will be broadcast to let you know when the hardware is ready.

  document.addEventListener("magstripeReady", function(){
      console.log("MSR READY");
