Brightness levels of the liquid crystal display (LCD) are adjustable based on the lighting conditions
by using the Windows Screen Brightness Bar. The DLI 9000 has a built-in Ambient Light Sensor
which will auto dim or increase brightness pending the ambient light. Example: if moving into a
dark area, the display will dim to help the eyes view the display. This feature can be
enabled/disabled via the BIOS. Please contact DLI Technical Support, 800.526.1299 x774
Adjusting the brightness with the Ambient Light Sensor disabled can be done via Windows in
Control Panel. Select Start > Control Panel > Power Options. At the bottom of this window is
your Screen Brightness Bar. Slide bar to the left to dim and slide to the right to increase

Using the Bluetooth Radio
The internal Bluetooth Class II wireless radio in the DLI 9000 is enabled by default. Microsoft™
Bluetooth software comes pre-installed on your terminal.
Pairing an Accessory to the DLI 9000
The icon in the system tray offers shortcuts to the Bluetooth Settings window, the Bluetooth
File Transfer Wizard and the Add New Connection Wizard. Press and hold the stylus on the
Bluetooth icon to open the Bluetooth device menu.
The following process is generally common for connecting most Bluetooth devices (keyboard,
mouse, printer, cellular phone, PDA, Tablet PC, notebook PC, etc.). The actual steps may be
slightly different for every type and brand of Bluetooth device. Read and follow the installation
instructions included with your specific device. These are the four generic steps for connecting to a
Bluetooth device.

Discover
Search
Pair
Connect
Discover
Making a Bluetooth device discoverable makes it visible to other Bluetooth devices. Each
Bluetooth device uses a different method (pressing a button or key combination) to make it
discoverable. This is generally described in the device’s documentation. When you activate
Bluetooth on your Tablet PC it is the signal for the Tablet PC to look for, or discover any Bluetooth
devices within range.
Search
This process will find every Bluetooth device that is discoverable and available for connection
within 33 feet (10 meters).
Pair
Using a passkey creates a secure connection (pairing) between the Tablet PC and
Bluetooth device. This passkey helps prevent data from being intercepted and interpreted by
another device.
Though the passkey exchange helps to secure your data, Bluetooth wireless
technology should not be considered completely secure.
Connect
The first time a Bluetooth device is connected to the terminal the drivers are loaded for that
device. After this initial connection, some Bluetooth devices may disconnect when they go into
power-saving mode. Most will automatically reconnect when they become active again.

Using the Bluetooth Application
1. Make sure that either the Bluetooth indicator light is flashing or that there is a
checkmark beside Enable Internal Bluetooth Wireless Radio (both indicate that

2. Using your stylus, Right mouse click the Bluetooth Devices icon in the system tray.
3. Tap Add a Device to launch the Bluetooth Add Bluetooth Device Wizard.
4. Place the Bluetooth device (headset, keyboard, printer, etc.) in discoverable mode.
Each Bluetooth device may have a different way to make it discoverable. Some have a
small button on the headset or keyboard; others may require that you press a key
sequence to invoke discovery. Look at the documentation that came with the Bluetooth
device or visit the manufacturer’s website for information.
5. After you make the Bluetooth device discoverable, it will show up in the wizard. Select
the Bluetooth device and select Next.
The Add Bluetooth Device Wizard will search for the Bluetooth device.

DLI 9000 Desktop Cradle
Overview
The DLI 9000 Cradle is a Desktop and Vehicle Cradle all in one. It features quick release and
lock, flexible mounting, and power options for all types of applications and devices. When the DLI
9000 is seated in the Cradle, the Main Battery is charged in 2 hours. The patent pending RF
design provides easier operation using internal and external antennas.
Charging
The Cradle provides power to the intelligent battery charging system in the DLI 9000 that senses
when a full charge has been achieved and switches to a trickle charge to maintain a full charge.
Use only DLI 9000 peripherals, power cables, and power adapters. Use of
peripherals, cables, or power adapters not sold/manufactured by Data Ltd. Inc.
will void the warranty and may damage the terminal.
Use only Li-Ion battery packs provided by Data Ltd. Inc. The use of any battery
pack not sold/manufactured by Data Ltd. Inc. will void the warranty and may
damage the terminal.
Communications
The Cradle transmits via USB 2.0 and serial devices at speeds of up to 115K baud. The
Ethernet transmits at 10/100 mbps.
RF Communication
The DLI 9000 Terminal with its integrated RF switching circuit provides a pass through for the RF
external connectors. This technology optimizes the ability for quick disconnect from the cradle and
switches the RF signal from the cradle to the internal antennas on the DLI 9000 Terminal.
