Network Scanner Detector enables you computer to detect the presence of a scanner. The device needs drivers to connect to the computer because it operates at a lower level compared to the computer. These drivers are small files acting like liaisons between the device and the OS and they work by translating the high-level OS commands into lower-level instructions the detector can understand. Network Scanner Detector drivers are proprietary, meaning they are made by manufacturers. Network Scanner Detector drivers usually come in a PC suite on purchase, but you need to upgrade them regularly. Updates take care of such things as the erratic behaviour in the difference components making up the detector and they lead to optimized performance and system stability. You can get updates for the detector using driver tracking software and they are usually available as freeware and shareware.
Network Scanner Detector drivers translate for the device and support the different technologies, protocols, interfaces, and standards that the detector uses. The drivers carry information that enables you to configure the detector to match your specific requirements. Network Scanner Detector drivers connect the different components that make up the device and they facilitate the connection between the detector and other devices. The detector has physical layers which facilitate this connection and they have logical layers for data processing. Network Scanner Detector drivers contain information on the manufacturer and device details. This information is used by the computer to facilitate the registration of the detector. These drivers are OS-specific and hardware-dependant and you should therefore go through the ‘readme.txt’ file before any installation for compatibility information.
