How To Scan

By pressing the 'Scan' button, the app will open the scanner. The scanner only reads QR codes, and the app only uses the TPS QR codes (highlighted in blue). The TPI QR Code (highlighted in red) will direct the scanner to the part page on the TPI website.

Code Won't Scan
  • Try scanning the code from farther away.

  • The 3 boxes in the corners can't be read (try repairing them with a dark pen).

  • The code is unreadable because it is too dirty or damaged.

  • Camera lens is too dirty or damaged.

  • Camera resolution too low (use 5MP or higher).

  • Too much glare on the tag for the scanner to read it properly.

  • There are more than one QR code in the viewfinder rectangle.
