Different manufacturers produce devices which are able to measure and weigh packages and parcels. Each brand has a different communication protocol. This module provides an framework to interface such devices with Odoo.

This module provides support for Bosche Zippcube devices.


This is an alpha version, the data model and design can change at any time without warning. Only for development or testing purpose, do not use in production. More details on development status

To secure the communication, we use a pre-shared secret. Generate it with a tool able to generate a random string, such as uuidgen. Run Odoo with an environment variable called ZIPPCUBE_SECRET set to the value of the secret.

After you have configured the measuring device in Odoo, you need to configure the device itself.

Edit the language file on the computer attached to the device, and set the following parameters (the secret value must be the one generated earlier):

REST_Body={"barcode":"%%VAR_NUMBER%%", "weight":"%%VAR_SCALE_WEIGHT%%",  "length":"%%VAR_LENGTH", "width":"%%VAR_WIDTH%%", "height":"%%VAR_HEIGHT%%", "secret": "<insert secret here>"}
REST_AcceptEncoding=gzip, deflate

For local testing you can use the script in scripts/


Create a measuring device with a type set to "zippcube".


Use the "Wizard" button on a Measuring Device to open the screen and take measurements.

After the measurement has been made, you need to click on the Refresh button.
