Preparation
2.1 Operating Environment for the Use of USB Interface
Using the scanner via the USB interface requires a host computer equipped with a USB port. The operating
environment differs depending upon whether you use the USB-COM interface or USB keyboard interface
as listed below.
USB keyboard interface:
No dedicated USB device driver is required. Via this interface, data scanned by the scanner can be entered
to the cursor position in your application. For instructions on how to set up the driver, refer to Chapter 3,
Section 3.2.2. For the interface specifications, refer to Chapter 9, Section 9.3.
This interface is selected by default.
USB-COM interface:
To use this interface, you need to install the dedicated Active USB-COM port driver (virtual COM port
driver) to the host computer. This interface allows you to use the scanner in applications using the
conventional serial port. For instructions on how to set up the driver, refer to Chapter 3, Section 3.2.1. For
the interface specifications, refer to Chapter 9, Section 9.2.
To use the USB-COM interface:
Host computer
Operating System (OS)
USB driver
To use the USB keyboard interface
(factory default):
PC/AT or AT/AT compatible PC equipped with a USB port
Windows XP, x32 Edition
Windows Vista, x32 Edition
Windows 7, x32 Edition and x64 Edition
Active USB-COM port driver
provided by DENSO WAVE
OS-supplied device driver
Note: The scanner cannot be used on Windows NT that does not support any USB device.
Switching between the USB-COM interface and USB keyboard interface is possible by:
- Using bar coded parameter menu (provided in Chapter 11),
- Using the configuration software (Scanner Setting),* or
- Connecting the scanner’s USB interface cable to the host computer or USB hub with the trigger switch
being held down. (If the USB-COM interface has been set up, doing so switches to the USB keyboard
interface, and vice versa.) (Interface switching when power turned ON is disable by default)
The interface setting will be retained even if the scanner is turned off.
Note: For approx. 20 seconds after switching from the USB-COM interface to the USB keyboard interface, the
scanner cannot accept data entry.
* Registered users can download the configuration software (Scanner Setting) from QBdirect, their customer

3.2 Using the USB Interface
The scanner receives and sends data from/to the host computer through the USB-COM interface or USB
keyboard interface. You need to set up the device driver designed for the interface to be used.
Notes for connecting the USB interface cable

To use the USB-COM interface, you need to install the serial port driver to the host computer before
connection of the USB interface cable. For details, refer to Section 3.2.1.
Scanner
USB interface cable


When plugging and unplugging the USB connector, put an interval of at least 10 seconds between those
actions since Windows may take several to 10 seconds to add or delete the USB device.
Hot plugging/unplugging is allowed for USB devices. However, do not plug or unplug the USB connector when:
- The computer is on standby (in suspend mode) or
- The COM port is open with the USB-COM interface being used. (Hot plugging/unplugging under this condition
will lose data.)

When the host computer is processing the scanner connection, do not plug or unplug any other USB device
cables.

Directly connect the scanner to the USB port on the host computer or to the self-powered hub. The scanner
may not be connected to some types of hubs. If the operation of the hub-connected scanner is unstable,
connect it directly to any USB port on the host computer.

Do not use any extension cord.
5
3.2.1 Setting up the USB-COM interface
Using the USB-COM interface requires installing the Active USB-COM port driver provided by DENSO WAVE to
the host computer. The driver does not come with the scanner in a CD-ROM. It can be downloaded for free from
our website at:
http://www.qbdirect.net
The file downloaded contains the Active USB-COM port driver and uninstaller which are compressed. It is a
self-extracting file. Store the file into a folder and then double-click its icon to extract it. For the latest information,
refer to the manual that comes with the driver.
Notes for installing and using the Active USB-COM port driver

The driver should be installed with administrative permission (Administrator Login).

The driver does not contain a Microsoft digital signature. Therefore, do not block installation of drivers
containing no signature with the driver’s signature option or local policy’s security option.

The driver allows hot plugging or unplugging of a USB device even during communication (when the COM port
is being opened); however, the communications data when the USB device is disconnected will be lost.

The driver always serves as a virtual serial port even if a USB device is unplugged, so the driver always
occupies a COM port number.

The driver cannot coexist with conventional Denso USB-COM device drivers in a host computer. In the
installation procedure, the Active USB-COM port driver requires uninstalling the conventional ones.

Installing the driver on a single host computer more than one time enables more than one USB device to be
used. However, the uninstaller of the Active USB-COM port driver uninstalls previously installed drivers, not
individually but all at once.
Installation procedure
Refer to the installation procedure for “Active USB-COM Port Driver Installation Guide.”
6
3.2.2 Setting up the USB keyboard interface
The USB keyboard interface requires the USB device class driver for HID (Human Interface Device) which
is included in Windows 98 or later Operating Systems and whose setup wizard will automatically run. You
do not need to install the device driver.
Note: If the USB-COM interface is set up, switch it to the USB keyboard interface by reading the “USB
keyboard interface” Barcode symbol given in Section 11.2 with the parameter setting procedure in Section
11.1. (Plugging the USB interface cable in the scanner automatically switches to the USB keyboard
interface by default.)
Connecting the USB interface cable to the host’s USB port or USB hub automatically runs the system-supplied
driver setup wizard. Follow the wizard and set up the driver. This section describes the procedure on each of
Windows XP and Windows Vista. On Windows 7 also, follow the wizard.

Reading Control
Two types of reading controls are available--Trigger switch control and Software control.
Trigger switch control: Pressing the trigger switch readies the scanner for reading. (Refer to Section 6.1.)
Software control: Instead of pressing the trigger switch, you send control commands from the host computer via
the RS-232C or USB-COM interface to ready the scanner for reading or put the scanner on standby.
(Refer to Section 6.2.)
In addition, the auto sensing mode and auto stand mode is also available. (Refer to Sections 6.3.)
6.1 Trigger Switch Control
Pressing the trigger switch turns on the illumination LEDs and readies the scanner for reading. The scanner
supports the following five trigger switch operating modes. Select the one that best meets your needs using the
bar coded parameter menu or the configuration software (Scanner Setting).
(1) Auto-off mode
When the trigger switch is pressed, the scanner is brought to the Active state for approximately five seconds.
The scanner automatically returns to the Ready state when reading is successfully completed, or after
approximately five seconds elapsed with the trigger switch pressed.
The scanner goes to the Ready state if the trigger switch is released before five seconds elapses.(in the case of
normal mode)
When the Auto off mode is set to be active only once (one-shot mode), the time required for the scanner to
become the Ready state after the trigger switch was pressed shall be designated in the setting.
(2) Momentary switching mode
The scanner is brought to the Active state only when the trigger switch is pressed, and returns to the Ready state
when the trigger switch is released.
(3) Momentary switching mode (Inversion type)
The scanner is brought to the Ready state only when the trigger switch is pressed, and returns to the Active state
when the trigger switch is released.
(4) Alternate switching mode
The scanner alternates between the Active state and the Ready state every time the trigger switch is pressed.
(5) Continuous reading mode 1
When you turn the scanner on, the scanner lights the illumination LEDs and becomes ready to scan. The scanner
ignores all trigger switch input.
If the scanner receives the Z, READOFF or LOFF command, it switches to standby; if it receives the R, READON
or LON command, it becomes ready to scan.
You can select whether or not the scanner transmits the ERROR command when the scanner cannot complete
reading and switches to standby, using the configuration software (Scanner Setting).
(6) Continuous reading mode 2
This mode is functionally equivalent to the continuous reading mode 1, except that the scanner waits for a
command upon completion of reading.
To become ready to scan, the scanner should receive the Z, READOFF or LOFF command to switch to standby
and then receive the R, READON or LON command.
You can select whether or not the scanner transmits the ERROR command when the scanner cannot complete
reading and switches to standby, using the configuration software (Scanner Setting).
Note: When you are setting parameters using the bar coded parameter menu, the scanner is always in the
auto-off mode regardless of the trigger switch operating mode selected.
11
6.2 Software Control
You can control the scanner by sending reading control commands from the host computer via the RS-232C or
USB-COM interface, instead of pressing the trigger switch.
Reading control commands include R, READON, LON, Z, READOFF and LOFF and are restricted by the trigger
switch operating modes, as listed below.

Description
Each of these commands should be enclosed with a header and terminator for transmission according to the
communications conditions of the scanner.
6.3 Reading by Automatic detection of labels
In auto sensing mode (Auto sense operation in auto stand mode is included), bringing a barcode label within the
scan range of the reading window turns on the illumination LEDs and starts the scanner reading the barcode. No
trigger switch operation is required. Use this mode when the scanner is stationary to a stand and a barcode label
is moved.
The illumination LEDs come on when you bring a barcode label within the designated range or move a barcode
label within the same range. These LEDs go off when a barcode label is moved away from the range or stays
within the range without move for approx. 5 seconds.
The scanner is set to the Auto sense operation when the power is turned on.
If the trigger switch is pressed while the scanner is operating in this mode, the scanner goes to the Auto off and
reads a barcode whenever the trigger switch is pressed.
However, the scanner will automatically return to the Auto sense operation if the trigger switch is not pressed for
longer than a time specified for the scanner to return to the Auto sense.
The time for the scanner to return to the Auto sense operation from the Auto off operation can be selected with
the configuration software.
Auto sensing mode and Auto stand mode are selected with the bar coded parameter menu or the configuration
software (Scanner Setting).
The scanner offers a choice of three sensitivity levels for responding to barcodes. Switch to a higher sensitivity
level if the illumination LEDs will not come on when a barcode is brought into the range, for example.
12
Note: Even if you do not bring a barcode label within the scan range, the illumination LEDs may come on
when the ambient level of light changes or any shadows move within the scan range.
Note: To enable the scanner to work properly in auto sensing mode, an ambient illuminance of at least 500 lx
is required.

Reading Functions
7.1 Data Verification Mode
The data verification mode verifies the barcode data read against the master data stored in the scanner and
reports the match status with data output.
Data verification read is available in two types--“n-point verification” and “2-point verification,” which can be
selected with the configuration software (Scanner Setting).
Selecting the n-point verification requires registering master data only one time for 1:n verification. The scanner
verifies all barcode data read after registration against the master data.
The 2-point verification refers to 1:1 verification. Selecting it requires registering master data each time preceding
barcode reading. After registration of master data, the scanner reads a barcode, verifies the barcode data read
against the master data and then becomes ready to register new master data. This way, the 2-point verification
read alternately repeats master data registration and barcode reading.
In n-point verification read, master data can be registered with “preset master registration” or “scan master
registration”; in 2-point verification read, with “scan master registration” only. The preset master registration
registers master data with the configuration software (Scanner Setting) beforehand, and the scan master
registration, by reading a master barcode label.
The master data registered by “preset master registration” or “scan master registration” will be sent to the host
computer when you scan the “Output master data” code given on page 17.
The verification parameters can be specified with the configuration software (Scanner Setting).
7.1.1 Data verification read procedure
 n-point verification
Preset master registration
This is available only when n-point verification is selected. Register the code type and data to be used for
verification using the configuration software (Scanner Setting). Up to 99 digits can be registered.
The registered master data will be preserved even if the scanner is turned off. To clear it, first clear the registered
master data stored in the host computer with the configuration software (Scanner Setting) and then send the new
setting data to the scanner.
Scan master registration
1) Switch the scanner to the data verification mode and select the RS-232C or USB-COM interface.
2) Send a scan entry control command “E” from the host to the scanner.
(Refer to Appendix 2 for control commands.) The indicator LED lights in green.
3) Use the scanner to scan a master code to be registered.
(The scanner operates in the trigger switch operating mode currently set.)
After registration of master data, the indicator LED turns blue and then goes OFF.
4) Use the scanner to scan a target barcode. The scanner verifies the code read against the master data
registered and then outputs the result. After a successful read, the indicator LED lights in blue.
During the registration operation above, if the master data has fewer characters than specified (e.g., less
than the specified verification start position), the registration operation aborts with an error.
Even if “Preset master registration” has been made, you can make “Scan master registration.” If both have been
made, the number of characters to verify that has been specified with “Preset master registration” and the master
data that has been specified with “Scan master registration” will be valid.
Note: The registered master data will be cleared when you customize the scanner by modifying the
parameters with the configuration software (Scanner Setting) or a batch-process barcode symbol.
Note: If no master data has been entered by either “Preset master registration” or “Scan master registration,”
the indicator LED flashes in red, during which it is impossible to scan codes.
Note: When the USB keyborad interface is used in the n-point Verification mode, the n-point Verification is
disabled and the normal reading mode is automatically selected if preset registered data is not
present.
14
 2-point verification
Scan master registration
1) Switch the scanner to the data verification mode and select the RS-232C or USB-COM interface.
The indicator LED lights in green.
2) Use the scanner to scan a master code to be registered. (The scanner operates in the trigger switch operating
mode currently set.)
After the registration of master data, the indicator LED turns blue and then goes OFF.
3) Use the scanner to scan a target barcode. The scanner verifies the barcode read against the master data
registered and then outputs the result.
After a successful read, the indicator LED lights in blue and then turns green, indicating that the scanner is
ready to register new master data.
During the registration procedure above, if the master data has fewer characters than specified (e.g., less than
the specified verification start position), the registration operation aborts with an error. The scanner becomes
ready to register master data again.
Verification retry after mismatch in 2-point verification
The 2-point verification read provides the “Verification retry after mismatch” option that retries verification against
the same master data. Enabling this option with the configuration software (Scanner Setting) readies the scanner
not for registering new master data but for reading a barcode again if the verification result is a mismatch.
Disabling this option readies the scanner for registering new master data after barcode reading, no matter what
the verification result is.
Note: Any of the following events clears the master data stored in the scanner.
- Turning the scanner power off.
- Modifying the verification start position or the number of characters to verify.
- Customizing the scanner by modifying the parameters with the configuration software
(ScannerSetting) or by reading a batch-process Barcode symbol.
Note: The data verification area can be selected from “Code type + code data” or “Code data only” with
the configuration software (Scanner Setting).
15
7.1.2 Specifying a verification object
You can specify two types of verification objects--data string and data block. For data string verification, specify
the verification start position and the number of characters to be verified. For data block verification, specify one
of the data blocks delimited by commas in the CSV format.
(1) Data string verification
The scanner verifies data specified by the verification start position and the number of characters to be verified
against the master data registered in the scanner, and then it outputs the verification result.
The verification start position should be within the range of 1 to 999, and the number of characters* to be verified,
within the range of 1 to 99.
*The number of characters for CODE39 symbols should be specified including start and stop codes.
In any of the following cases, the verification results in a mismatch:
1) The verification data in the specified position does not match the master data.
2) The code type which the verification data belongs to is different from the one which the master data belongs to.
See (Note) below.
3) All data specified is not included or no data is included within the specified range.

(2) Data block verification
If data is saved in the comma-delimited CSV format, the scanner verifies data in the specified data block against
the master data registered in the scanner, and then outputs the verification result.
The data block position should be within the range of 1 to 99.
In any of the following cases, the verification results in a mismatch:
1) The verification data in the specified block does not match the master data.
2) The code type which the verification data belongs to is different from the one which the master data belongs to.
See (Note) below.
3) All data specified is not included or no data is included within the specified block.
4) The data block to be verified exceeds 99 characters in length.

7.2 Data Editing
You can edit and output code data read, in any of the three data edit modes--“data extraction mode,” “data
conversion mode” and “blocksorting mode.” These data edit modes can be selected with the configuration
software (Scanner Setting). The default is “No editing.”
7.2.1 Data extraction mode
This mode offers three extraction choices--“data string,” “data block” and “AI (Application Identifier)-prefixed
string” extractions from code data read and then outputs it.
The “data block” extraction is available only when code data is in the comma-delimited CSV format.
The “AI-prefixed string” extraction is available for GS1-128 (EAN-128) and GS1 DataBar (RSS) symbols.
7.2.1.1 Extracting a data string
The scanner extracts a data string specified by the “Extraction start position” and “Extraction end position” from a
code specified by the “Code type” and then outputs it in the data transmission format selected in the scanner (see
Chapter 9, Section 9.4). The extraction conditions and extraction start and end positions are listed below.

7.2.1.3 Extracting AI (Application Identifier)-prefixed strings
If the scanner reads any of GS1-128 (EAN-128) and GS1DataBar (RSS) symbols, it edits the data according to AI
and outputs it in the data transmission format selected in the scanner (see Chapter 9, Section 9.4).
The “AI-prefixed string” extraction is available in two modes--AI-delimited mode and AI parenthesizing mode. AI to
be used for data editing are listed in (3) AI table later.
(1) AI-delimited mode
In this mode, the scanner extracts strings prefixed with AI specified (up to three types of AI) and separates them
with the specified delimiters (selectable from headers / terminators, commas and tabs) instead of AI to output
them.
 Extraction conditions

Setting data
“Transmit data regardless of the results”
Permit/Prohibit
If the scanner fails to extract an AI-prefixed string when the “Transmit data regardless of the results” is permitted,
it outputs the data read as is without editing.
 Delimiters

Header / terminator
Specifying a header/terminator as delimiters prefixes a header and suffixes a terminator to each element
string separated.
A scanner ID, code ID mark, the number of digits, prefix, and suffix can be also added to each element string
if their transmissions are enabled.
The number of digits is the count of each element string edited.
Example
Data read : (01)94901234567894(11)030808(13)030810

AI specified
01,11,13

Comma
Specifying a comma as delimiters outputs comma-delimited data. No comma follows the tail of the data.
A header and terminator are added to the full string. None of a scanner ID, code ID mark, the number of
digits, prefix, and suffix is added even if their transmissions are enabled.
Example
Data read : (01)94901234567894(11)030808(13)030810

Beeper, Indicator LED
8.1 Beeper
(1) Beeping
The scanner emits a short or long beeps, once or a couple of times as described below.
(Refer to Section 8.3 for details of beeper in various states)
You can disable the beeper using the Bar coded parameter menu or configuration software (ScannerSetting).
In any of the following cases, however, the beeper sounds regardless of that beeper setting:
- when you make settings by reading the Bar coded parameter menu,
- when the scanner receives a beeper-ON command from the host computer,
- when the configuration software (Scanner Setting) starts up or any setting you have made is established,
- when the scanner reads a batch-process QR Code symbol,
- when the parameter values are saved by a PW command (refer to Appendix 2), and
- when the beeper is enabled at power ON.
(2) Adjusting the beeper volume
You can adjust the beeper volume to three levels--high, medium and low--using the Bar coded parameter menu
or configuration software (Scanner Setting). The factory default is High.
Each time the “Beeper volume” Barcode symbol is read, the beeper volume cycles as shown below.
High
Medium
Low
Even if the scanner is turned off, this setting will be retained.
At the shipment, the beeper volume is set at “High”.
(3) Adjusting the beeper frequency (tone)
The following three choices are available for beeper frequency (tone) using the barcode menu or configuration
software (Scanner Setting).
Item
Frequency

Communication
9.1 RS-232C Interface
With the RS-232C interface being selected, the scanner uses asynchronous data transmission and
communicates with the host computer or external equipment via the RS-232C. You can set various
communications conditions using the Bar coded parameter menu or configuration software (Scanner Setting).
Barcode data read is transferred in the following format.
(1) Communications protocol
You can select either no protocol mode or ACK/NAK mode.
No protocol mode (default)
If the CTS signal is at a high level (Enable transmission), the scanner transmits barcode data read.
Note: The configuration software (Scanner Setting) provides CTS timeout settings from 100 ms to
9.9 s in 100-ms increments and two CTS signal control choices “controlled” and “not controlled.”
ACK / NAK mode
If the CTS signal is at high level (Enable transmission), the scanner transmits barcode data read. After that, the
scanner waits for and then processes a response. If the response is an ACK, the scanner normally ends the
transmission; if it is a NAK, the scanner transmits the barcode data again.
Note: The configuration software (Scanner Setting) provides CTS timeout and ACK/NAK response settings
each from 100 ms to 9.9 s in 100-ms increments.
(2) RTS signal control protocol
You can select either the scanner ready mode or the data ready mode.
Scanner ready mode(default)
The RTS signal goes High and stays at a high level when the scanner is ready to communicate at power on.
Make sure that the RTS signal is at a high level when transmitting a command from the host to the scanner.
Data ready mode
The RTS signal goes High before the scanner transmits data to the host and goes Low after the data
transmission is completed.
Commands can be transmitted from the host to the scanner regardless of the level of the RTS signal. However,
there is a short time when commands cannot be transmitted to the scanner after power has been turned on.
(3) Transmission speed
There are six transmission speeds available, ranging from 4800 bps to 115200 bps (default: 9600 bps).
(4) Transfer Characters
Transfer Characters that the scanner transfers are all ASCII codes. The frame format has the following
parameters.
Data bits : 7 bits or 8 bits (default)
Parity :
Odd, Even, or None (default)
Stop bits : 1 bit (default) or 2 bits
Note: When data contains binary data or 2-byte codes, selecting “7 bits” for the data bits transfers the 2-byte
codes with the most significant bits trimmed.
36
9.2 USB-COM Interface
This scanner is compliant with USB 1.1 (Universal Serial Bus Specification Revision 1.1).
Installing the dedicated Active USB-COM port driver to the host computer allows the USB-COM interface to
operate in communications applications using the conventional serial port.
Note: Entering data transferred from the scanner via the USB-COM interface directly to application (e.g., Access,
Excel, and Internet Explorer) running on the host computer requires the keyboard interface software(QR_kbif)*.
As shown below, the QR_kbif converts the data read into the keying format and passes it to applications in the
manner as if it is coming from the keyboard. It is, therefore, possible for applications capable of accepting keyed
data to handle the data read by the scanner.
* Registered users can download the keyboard interface software (QR_kbif) from QBdirect, their customer support section
on the Denso Wave website at no extra charge. For further details on QBdirect or to register, visit the following URL.

 Notes for use
• If you connect the scanner to your computer first time or have changed the COM port for the scanner or hub,
then confirm the COM port number on the Windows Device Manager or the like before use.
• If you want to use two or more communications processors (software) or scanners concurrently on your
computer, be sure to assign a unique COM port number to each of them.
• If the host computer switches to the suspend mode when any communications software is running and
recovers from that suspend mode, the software may freeze in some computers. Quit and restart the software.
• It is not necessary to make settings such as transmission speed, data bits, parity, and stop bits (which are
required for communications software using a conventional serial port) since the USB interface ignores those
settings. The flow control should be set to “Hardware (RTS/CTS)” or “None.”
• The virtual COM port on the computer and the scanner are connected with each other as shown below.

 Communication protocols
You can select either no protocol mode or ACK/NAK mode.
No protocol mode (default)
If the CTS signal is at a high level (Enable transmission), the scanner transmits barcode data read.
Note: The configuration software (Scanner Setting) provides CTS timeout settings from 100 ms to
9.9 s in 100-ms increments and two CTS signal control choices “controlled” and “not controlled.”
ACK / NAK mode
If the CTS signal is at high level (Enable transmission), the scanner transmits barcode data read. After that, the
scanner waits for and then processes a response. If the response is an ACK, the scanner normally ends the
transmission; if it is a NAK, the scanner transmits the barcode data again.
Note: The configuration software (Scanner Setting) provides CTS timeout and ACK/NAK response settings
each from 100 ms to 9.9 s in 100-ms increments.
38
9.3 USB Keyboard Interface
The USB keyboard interface requires no dedicated device driver. Data read by the scanner can be entered to the
cursor position in your application.
The USB keyboard interface operates in conformity with the following:
- Universal Serial Bus (USB) Device Class Definition for Human Interface Devices (HID) Version 1.11
- Universal Serial Bus (USB) HID Usage Tables Version 1.11 keyboard
(1) CAPS Lock state
Select the CAPS Lock ON or OFF to match the state of the connected keyboard. (Default: CAPS Lock OFF)
(2) Keyboard type
Select the type of the connected keyboard. (Default : Type 101, US English)
(3) Numeric data transmission format
Select the “inboard numeric keys” or “numeric keypad” on the connected keyboard.
(Default : Inboard numeric keys)
(4) Data transmission interval
Select the data transmission interval to be applied when the scanner sends data read to the host computer. There

(2) Scanner ID
A scanner ID is a unique serial number assigned to an individual scanner at the time of shipment. It consists of six
numerals.
(3) Prefix/Suffix
A prefix or suffix consists of up to eight ASCII characters (00h to FFh). You can set a prefix or suffix with the
configuration software (Scanner Setting). (Default: No prefix or suffix)
(4) BCC
The Block Character Check (BCC) exclusive-OR all bits at the same bit level in characters following the header
and preceding the terminator in a transmission block to generate a horizontal parity byte to be transferred in a
binary code. The BCC can be enabled or disabled. If no header is prefixed or the USB keyboard interface is
selected, no BCC will be transferred.
40
(5) Code ID mark
This optional field specifies the code ID mark identifying a barcode symbology. Five types of code ID marks (Type
1, Type 2, Type 3, Type 4, and user-defined) are available as listed below.
The code mark type 4 has two output modes “Coupling” and “Separate.”
Coupling : In a UPC/EAN symbol with an add-on, the same code ID mark is assigned to the main portion
and the add-on portion of the symbol.
Separate : In a UPC/EAN symbol with an add-on, the different code ID marks are individually assigned
to the main portion and the add-on portion of the symbol.

9.5 GTIN Format Conversion
Enabling the GTIN (Global Trade Item Number) format conversion allows UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-13, EAN-8, and
Interleaved 2 of 5 (14-digit) data to output in the GTIN format. It also allows GS1 DataBar (RSS) and GS1-128
(EAN-128) data in the GTIN format to output in the EAN format (product code format).
Note : Under any of the following conditions, the GTIN format conversion is invalid.
- In reading barcode types specified for multi-line barcode reading
- In any of the data edit modes (data extraction mode, data substitution mode, and data blocksorting mode)
(1) Conversion from UPC / EAN / Interleaved 2 of 5 (14-digit) to GTIN format
Conversion provides two choices--16- and 14-digit GTIN formats. The former adds the Application Identifier (AI)
“01” and Package Indicator PI as a prefix, and the latter, a PI only.

Control Commands
Control commands refer to commands that are exchanged between the host computer and the scanner via the
communications line.
Some of the control commands that the host computer issues are functionally equivalent to some parameters that
can be set with the Bar coded parameter menu (refer to Chapter 11). Control command settings have priority over
settings made with the Bar coded parameter menu.
Note that turning off the scanner will clear control command settings so that settings made with the Bar coded
parameter menu will take effect unless the PW command is sent to the scanner for saving control command
settings into the FLASH ROM.
If commands other than ones listed below are sent to the scanner, the scanner operation is not assured.
Note: Selecting the USB keyboard interface disables the control commands.
Note: Until the completion of execution of a specified control command, the subsequent command will not be
executed.
Note: After recognition of the virtual COM port when the USB-COM interface is used, the scanner requires a
maximum of one second to be ready to receive control commands.

Check the setting parameter version required to generate a
batch bar code setting (when the scanner not connected) with
the configuration software (ScannerSetting).

ERROR
Scan fail
When set to Continuous reading mode 1 or 2, data is
transmitted when scanner enters Ready state without
completing reading in Active state. Transmission enabaled or
disabled is selectable.
OK
Match
Only if data output is set to “OK” when verified data matches,
this command will be transmitted when data scanned
matches the master code in the verification reading.
93
NG
Mismatch
Only if data output is set to “NG” when verified data does not
match, this command will be transmitted when data scanned
does not match the master code in the verification reading
mode.
(Note 1) If the scanner receives the R command twice with the reading window being applied to a code (for
example, it receives the R command, sends the code data read, and receives the Z and R commands),
it will send even the same code data twice. This is because the Z command cancels the duplication
prevention processing.
In split Barcode reading operation, if the scanner receives the Z command and switches to standby
before reading a set of split Barcode symbols, the duplication prevention processing will be canceled.
The code data that has been read halfway will be discarded.
The READOFF and LOFF commands produce the same result as the Z command, the READON and
LON commands, as the R command.
(Note 3) After receipt of one of the B1 to B3, BH1 to BH3, BM1 to BM3, BL1 to BL3, LB, LG, LR and VO
command, the scanner may need a maximum of 100 ms to execute the command.
(Note 4) Beeping specified by control commands B1, BH1, BM1, and BL1 is dependent on the reading completion
sound and its length.
(Note 5) The PW can save settings into the FLASH ROM a maximum of 1,000,000 times due to the restrictions
on the FLASH ROM.
(Note 6) These control commands are available only when the scanner is not in data verification mode.
