Can the XB5 Biometric Switch USB be used with competitor HMIs?

Product Line:
Biometric Pushbuttons - GIC Product

Environment:
US Product

Cause:
Product Application

Resolution:
There is no documentation on interfacing the Biometric Scanners to Allen Bradley (or other) HMI units via the USB cable.  The Schneider biometric switch utilizes a proprietary communication protocol.  This protocol can only interface with Schneider Vijeo Designer or the XB5 Soft software.
