Setting Up a Barcode Scanner

I am trying to set up a Zebra LS2208 barcode scanner. We already have barcode scanning successfully implemented using FileMaker Go on iPads, but we would like to be able to scan a barcode with the computer as well, using the barcode scanner connected via USB.

 

From what I've read, I understand that all barcode scanners are different, but I think that what I'm getting hung up on is how to write a script that would be triggered by the scanner. Is it at all similar to setting up scanning for the iPads? For the iPads I have a button that triggers a script to Insert from Device, Enter Find Mode, Set Field, Perform Find, which works great. I use a global field for the search. Is there a similar Insert from Device step that can be used with a barcode scanner?
