      Hello Maximo,
      we use it with some no-name Chinese scanners in our office. Ventor should work with any barcode scanner if it can successfully connect to your device and scan a barcode in third-party apps (notepad, browser, or any).
      Don’t forget to activate a setting “external barcode scanner”
