Introduction
The Voyager™ MS9500 Series single-line hand-held scanners include
both the MS9520 and MS9540.
The Voyager MS9540 features Metrologic’s patented CodeGate™
technology. CodeGate is an intuitive scanning system that is ideal for all
scanning applications, including menu-scanning, point-of-sale, document
processing, and inventory control.
CodeGate works hand-in-hand with Metrologic’s patented automatictriggering scheme. Simply present a bar code to the scanner; the highvisibility 650-nanometer laser is automatically activated allowing the
user to easily select the bar code to be scanned. Press the CodeGate
button and the data is transmitted to the host system.
Equipped with both ‘in-stand’ and ‘out-of-stand’ operation, Voyager can
be used as both a hand-held and fixed projection scanner. Voyager
automatically senses when it is placed in the stand and de-activates the
CodeGate button.
If the advantage of CodeGate technology is unnecessary in your
application, then the MS9520 is the Voyager of choice. The MS9520 is
packed with all of the same features as the MS9540, with the exception
of CodeGate.
Metrologic has included many standard features such as: user
upgradeable Flash ROM, PowerLink user-replaceable cables,
MetroSet™ and METROSELECT® configuration, EMI rating of Class B,
data editing (parsing) capability using Bits ‘n’ Pieces™, and a 2-year
warranty.

Audible Indicators
When the Voyager is in operation, it provides audible feedback. These
sounds indicate the status of the scanner. Eight settings are available
for the tone of the beep (normal, 6 alternate tones and no tone). To
change the tone, refer to the MetroSelect Programming Guide MLPN
2407.
One Beep
When the scanner first receives power, the green
LED will turn on, then the red LED will flash and the
scanner will beep once. (The red LED will remain on
for the duration of the beep.) The scanner is ready to
scan.
When the scanner successfully reads a bar code, the
red LED will flash and the scanner beeps once (if
programmed to do so). If the scanner does not beep
once and the green light does not flash, then the bar
code has not been successfully read.
Razzberry Tone
This tone is a failure indicator. Refer to
“Failure Modes" page 13.
Three Beeps - During Operation
When entering configuration mode, the red LED will
flash while the scanner simultaneously beeps three
times. The red and green LEDs will continue to flash
while in this mode. Upon exiting configuration mode,
the scanner will beep three times, and the LEDs will
stop flashing.
When configured, 3 beeps can also indicate a
communications timeout during normal scanning
mode.
When using one-code-programming, the scanner will
beep three times (the current selected tone), followed
by a short pause then by a high tone and a low tone.
This tells the user that the single configuration bar
code has successfully configured the scanner.
Three Beeps - On Power Up
10
This is a failure indicator. Refer to “Failure Modes”
on page 13.
11
Visual Indicators
There are three LED indicators (green, red and yellow) located on the
head of the MS9500. When the scanner is on, the flashing or stationary
activity of the LEDs indicates the status of the current scan and the
scanner.
Green, Red & Yellow LEDs are off
The LEDs will not be illuminated if the scanner is not
receiving power from the host or transformer.
The scanner is stand-by mode, and CodeGate is enabled.
Present a bar code to the scanner and the green LED will
turn on when the laser turns on.
Steady Yellow
The CodeGate button is not active. If a bar code is in the
scan field, the laser will turn on. The bar code will be
decoded and transmitted to the host automatically.
Steady Green
When the laser is active, the green LED is illuminated. The
green LED will remain illuminated until the laser is
deactivated.
Steady Green and Single Red Flash
When the scanner successfully reads a bar code, the red
LED will flash and the scanner will beep once. If the red LED
does not flash or the scanner does not beep once, then the
bar code has not been successfully read.
Steady Green and Steady Red
After a successful scan, the scanner transmits the data to
the host device. Some communication modes require that
the host inform the scanner when data is ready to be
received. If the host is not ready to accept the information,
the scanner’s red LED will remain on until the data can be
transmitted.
12
Visual Indicators (continued)
Alternating Flashing of Green and Red
This indicates the scanner is program mode. A razzberry
tone indicates that an invalid bar code has been scanned
while in this mode.
Steady Red, Green off
This indicates the scanner may be waiting for
communication from the host.
13
Failure Modes
Flashing Green and one Razzberry Tone
This indicates the scanner has experienced a laser subsystem failure. Return the unit for repair to an authorized
service center.
Flashing Red and Green with Two Razzberry Tones
This indicates the scanner has experienced a scanning
mechanism failure. Return the unit for repair to an
authorized service center.
Continuous Razzberry Tone with all LEDs off
If, upon power, the scanner emits a continuous razzberry
tone, then the scanner has an experienced an electronic
failure. Return the unit for repair to an authorized service
center.
Three Beeps – on power up
If the scanner beeps 3 times on power up then, the nonvolatile memory (NovRAM) that holds the scanner
configuration has failed. Return the unit for repair to an
authorized service center.
14
Programming Modes
The MS9500 Voyager has 3 modes of programming.
Bar Codes: Voyager can be configured by scanning the bar codes
located in the METROSELECT® Configuration Guide (MLPN 2407).
Please refer to this guide for instructions. This manual can be
downloaded for FREE from Metrologic’s website (www.metrologic.com).
MetroSet™: This user-friendly Windows-based configuration program
allows you to simply ‘point-and-click’ at the desired scanner options.
This program can be downloaded for FREE from Metrologic’ website
(www.metrologic.com), or set-up disks can be ordered by calling 1-800ID-METRO.
Serial Programming: This mode of programming is ideal for OEM
applications. This mode gives the end-user the ability to send a series
of commands using the serial port of the host system. The commands
are equivalent to the numerical values of the bar codes located in the
MetroSelect Configuration Guide (MLPN 2407).
How does Serial Programming work?
1. Each command sent to the scanner is the ASCII representation of
each numeral in the configuration bar code. The entire numeric
string is framed with an ASCII [stx] and an ASCII [etx].
EXAMPLE #1: Command for Disabling Codabar
Command = [stx]100104[etx]
String Sent to Scanner = 02h 31h 30h 30h 31h 30h 34h 03h
(All values are hexadecimal).
2. If the command sent to the scanner is valid, the scanner will respond
with an [ack].
3. If the command sent to the scanner in invalid, the scanner will
respond with a [nak].
NOTE: If this occurs, the end-user must start over at the very
beginning of the configuration sequence. Simply re-tranmsitting the
invalid command will not work, you must start over.
15
Programming Modes (continued)
4. During programming, the motor and laser remain active. YOU
CANNOT SCAN ANY BAR CODES WHILE IN PROGRAM MODE.
5. There is a 20 second window between commands. If a 20 second
timeout occurs, the scanner will send a [nak] and you must start
over.
6. To enter serial program mode, send the following command
[stx]999999[etx].
7. To exit serial program mode, send the following command
[stx]999999[etx], the scanner will respond with an [ack] and a long
beep.
8. This mode uses the current Baud Rate, Parity, Stop Bits and Data
Bits settings that are configured in the scanner. The default settings
of the scanner are 9600, Space, 2, 7 respectively. If a command is
sent to the scanner to change any of these settings, the change will
NOT take effect until after serial program mode is exited.
EXAMPLE #2: The following example will set the scanner to the factory
default settings, Disable Scanning of Code 128 bar codes, change the
beeper tone, and add a “G” as a programmable prefix.

The commands sent to the scanner do not include the small
superscripted ‘3’ that you see in front of each bar code string in the
MetroSelect manual. THE ‘3’ SHOULD NOT BE SENT, IT IS A
CODE TYPE DESIGNATION ONLY!
As you will note for commands requiring additional bar codes to be
scanned (such as prefixes, suffixes, timeouts, etc.), simply send the
code bytes in the same order that you would normally scan the bar
codes.

This example illustrates two important points.
First, if an invalid command is sent from the host, the scanner
responds with a [nak] and the end-user must start over from the
beginning.
Second, if a command is sent to change the Baud Rate, the new
baud rate does not take effect until after the end-user exits program
mode.

Upgrading the Flash Rom Firmware
The Meteor program is a functional component of Metrologic’s new line
of flash-based scanners. This program allows the user of a Metrologic
scanner to quickly upgrade to a new or custom version of software. It
requires the use of a personal computer running under Windows 95 or
greater and the use of a communication port. The user merely connects
the scanner to a communications port of the PC, launches the Meteor
program, and blasts off to new software upgrades.
Each MS9500, regardless of the version number or communication
protocol, can be upgraded. In other words, all RS232 (-41), keyboard
wedge (-47), light pen (-41), OCIA (-9) and IBM 468X/469X (-11) units
can be upgraded. To upgrade all units, a power supply and PowerLink
cable (MLPN 54012) are required.
The upgrades and custom software versions will be supplied by
Metrologic in files called Motorola S-record files. These files contain all
the information needed to upgrade the scanner. Simply add this file to
the working directory or retrieve from its current location.
The program guides the user with its simplistic one click approach. The
user must first select the file; once selected and verified, the file is ready
to be used in the upgrade. Press the button to upgrade the scanner, the
unit will go into a “flash mode” – both the green and red LEDs will be on.
The user can follow the progress of the upgrade by watching the screen
for details. When the upgrade is complete, the scanner will respond with
its normal one beep on power up. If two beeps occur, the scanner did not
upgrade properly. (Contact Metrologic for additional details).

Labels
Each scanner has a label on the back of the unit. This label has the
model number, date of manufacture, serial number, CE and caution
information. The following is an example of this label:

RS-232 Demonstration Program
If an RS-232 scanner is not communicating with your IBM
compatible PC, key in the following BASIC program to test that
the communication port and scanner are working.
This program is for demonstration purposes only. It is only
intended to prove that cabling is correct, the com port is working,
and the scanner is working. If the bar code data displays on the
screen while using this program, it only demonstrates that the
hardware interface and scanner are working. At this point,
investigate whether the application software and the scanner
configuration match.
If the application does not support RS-232 scanners, a software
wedge program that will take RS-232 data and place it into a
keyboard buffer may be needed. This program tells the PC to
ignore RTS-CTS, Data Set Ready (DSR) and Data Carrier Detect
(DCD) signals. If the demonstration program works and yours still
does not, jumper RTS to CTS and Data Terminal Reading (DTR)
to DCD and DSR on the back of your PC.
