This newest member of the LINX terminal family features a blue-white graphic display with international character set, a variety of popular reader options, and a durable molded plastic case. What really sets this terminal apart from traditional data collection terminals is its HTTP posting technique. A CGI (Common Gateway Interface) host computer program for handling HTTP client communications from the LINX VII-3 is standard. This program will allow saving data to a flat file, sending data to selected databases, and/or retrieving response data from the database. The LINX VII-3 supports standard TCP communications protocol. It has an integral web server that allows the terminal to serve web pages to a browser for providing enhanced diagnostic, setup and remote management capability, and an internal FTP (File Transfer Protocol) server. Also, menu driven configurations and diagnostics may be enabled at the terminal directly. This allows easy establishment of the individual terminal characteristics, bar code types, and communication port parameters, such as baud rate and parity.

LINXScript-3 is a programming language that allows control over the operating characteristics of the LINX VII-3 Data Collection Terminal. It is both host and platform independent, which means that special tools are not needed to prepare, install, or run LINXScript-3 programs. The only tools required to create a program are a text editor or word processor capable of writing files in ASCII text mode, an ordinary FTP client, and LINXScript-3 itself. The application programs are typically prepared on a computer, and then downloaded to the terminals, where they are run by the LINXScript-3 interpreter. Because the interpreter is an integral part of the LINX VII-3 Operating System, this allows control of all standard devices such as the display, keypad, speaker, digital I/O lines, and the communication port. Optional devices that can be controlled are the fingerprint, proximity, barcode, and magnetic stripe readers. Also, a laser/wand port is available.
