FCC Information To The User
Radio And Television Interference
This equipment radiates radio frequency energy and if not used
properly—that is, in strict accordance with the instructions in this
manual—may cause interference to radio communications and television reception. It has been tested and found to comply with the
limits for a Class B digital device pursuant to part 15 of the FCC
Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
1. This device may not cause harmful interference, and
2. This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against
harmful interference in a residential installation. However, there is
no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio
or television reception, which can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation distance between the equipment and
the receiver.
• If you are using the equipment with a mains adaptor, plug it
into an outlet which is on a different circuit from that to
which the receiver is connected.
• Consult an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
For customers in the USA, the following booklet prepared by the
Federal Communications Commission may be of help: “How to
10
Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 Quick Start Guide
Identify and Resolve Radio-TV Interference Problems”. This
booklet is available from the US Government Printing Office,
Washington, DC 20402 - Stock No 004-000-00345-4.
Radio Frequency Emissions
Do not use in aircraft or hospitals. Some equipment in hospitals and
aircraft are not shielded from radio frequency energy. Do not use the
netpad onboard aircraft, or in hospitals, without first obtaining permission.
Do not use near pacemakers. The product may affect the operation
of some medically implanted devices such as pacemakers, causing
them to malfunction. Avoid placing your product next to such
devices. Keep a minimum distance of 15 cm between the device and
the product to reduce the risk of interference. If you have any reason
to suspect that interference is taking place, turn off the netpad and
contact your cardiologist for assistance.
Note: In August 1996 the Federal Communications Commission
(FCC) of the US adopted an updated safety standard for
human exposure to radio frequency energy emitted by FCC
regulated transmitters. The design of this product complies
with the FCC guidelines and those standards.
To maintain compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines, if you wear the netpad on your body, use the supplied
or approved carrying case, or other body-worn accessory
(see page 24 for details). If you do not use a body-worn
accessory, ensure the antenna is at least 1.5 cm from your
body when transmitting. Use of non-approved accessories
may violate FCC RF exposure guidelines.
Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 Quick Start Guide
11
Important Safety Instructions
This equipment was tested for FCC compliance under conditions
that included the use of shielded cables and connectors between it
and the peripherals. It is important that you use shielded cable and
connectors to reduce the possibility of causing radio and television
interference. Shielded cables, suitable for the netpad, can be
obtained from an authorised Psion Teklogix dealer.
If the user modifies the equipment or its peripherals in any way, and
these modifications are not approved by Psion Teklogix, the FCC
may withdraw the user’s right to operate the equipment.
Emissions Information For Canada
This Class B digital apparatus meets all requirements of the Canadian Interference-Causing Equipment Regulations.
Cet appareil numérique de la classe B respecte toutes les exigences
du Règlement sur le matériel brouilleur du Canada.

can vaporize the liquid electrolyte causing cell
rupture. Incineration may result in harmful emissions or explosion.
• Do not charge, use or store batteries below -30º C
(-22° F). Batteries must be handled in accordance
with all applicable state and federal laws and
regulations.
• The battery incorporates built-in safety devices. To
ensure their proper function, do not disassemble or
alter any parts of the battery.
14
Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 Quick Start Guide
• Do not short-circuit the battery by directly connecting any of the exposed terminals with metal objects
such as wire. Do not transport or store the battery
together with metal objects such as necklaces, hair
pins, etc.
• Do not use or leave the battery near a heat source
such as a fire or heater.
• Do not immerse the battery in water.
• When charging, use the battery charger specifically

Psion Teklogix has partnered with a number of companies to provide
a suite of connectivity and database tools for the netpad. Details are
available on the Psion Teklogix Partner Program web site at:
http://partners.psionteklogix.com/partners/.
1.2 Caring For The netpad
Screen
When used with the approved stylus, the netpad screen is very resistant to wear and impact and should last for a considerable time. Use
18
Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 Quick Start Guide
of any object, other than the approved stylus, may result in damage
to the netpad screen.
To maintain the life of the netpad screen, keep the screen clean. To
clean the screen: switch off the netpad and use a soft, clean, dry cloth
to gently wipe the screen. (If the netpad is set to turn on automatically when the screen is tapped, you should turn this preference off
before cleaning the screen.)
Warning: Under no circumstances use chemical solvents to clean
the screen.
Charging
To avoid damage to the netpad or the netpad battery packs, use only
Psion Teklogix approved chargers and docking stations.
Backup Battery
The netpad has a rechargeable backup battery designed to retain data
while the main battery pack is charging or changed over. The backup
battery is trickle charged from the main battery pack and has a limited
lifespan. To maximize the life of the backup battery, avoid excessive
discharging and recharging of the backup battery by keeping the netpad battery pack fully charged. See page 25 for further details on
power management.
Important: If both the main battery pack and the backup battery
are allowed to fully discharge, you will lose all your
information on the internal disk. Some of your data
can be protected from loss using the Total Recall
application (see the netpad User Manual for details).
Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 Quick Start Guide
19
The backup battery is not user replaceable. If the backup battery
requires replacement the netpad must be returned to a Psion Teklogix approved service centre.
Drop Rating
The netpad is designed to survive being dropped on any face, onto
concrete, from a height of 1.5 m (5 ft.).
Dropping the netpad from greater heights or onto harder surfaces
may result in damage to the netpad.
IP Rating
The netpad is rated to IP67 and can survive submersion in water to a
depth of 1 m (3.3 ft.) for up to 30 minutes. Submersion below this
depth or for longer periods may result in damage to the netpad.
Operating Temperature
The netpad is designed to operate within the temperature limits of
-20°C to +60°C (-4°F to 140°F); and -20°C to +55°C (-4°F to 131°F)
for scanner variants. Use of the netpad outside of these temperature
limits may reduce its life.
Avoid exposing the netpad to sudden changes in temperature, since
such exposure may result in damage.
Important: As a safety precaution, charging the netpad battery
should be limited to the temperature range: -20°C to
+60°C (-4°F to 140°F); and -20°C to +55°C (-4°F to
131°F) for scanner variants. Outside of these limits,
the safety circuits of the netpad battery pack will not
allow the battery to charge.
20
Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 Quick Start Guide
Storage Temperature
The netpad is designed to be stored within the temperature ranges of
-25°C to +70°C (-13°F to 158°F); and -25°C to +60°C (-13°F to
140°F) for scanner variants. Storage of the netpad outside of these
temperature limits may reduce its life.
To prolong the life of the netpad battery packs during normal storage, store the netpad (and the battery pack) between +10°C and
+35°C (+50°F and +95°F).
When storing the netpad for a long period of time, first back up all
the files stored in the netpad, then remove and store the main battery
when it’s at a 70% to 90% charge level.
Humidity
The netpad is designed to operate in humidity ranging from 0 to
95%. Use of the netpad in environments with condensing humidity
or humidity outside these limits may result in damage to the netpad.
Magnetic Fields And Static Electricity
The magnet of the netpad speaker may corrupt data stored on magnetic media. Do not keep the netpad next to credit cards or other
magnetic media.
Avoid exposing the netpad to strong magnetic fields or static electricity. Such exposure may cause loss of data or result in damage to
the netpad.
Service
Do not attempt to dismantle the netpad. There are no user-serviceable parts inside, and any attempt to dismantle the netpad will invalidate the warranty.

Figure 2.2 Back Of netpad
2.2 Preparing The netpad For Use
2.2.1 Fitting The Antenna
For some netpad models fitted with either the GPRS or 802.11b
radio, the antenna must be installed. The antenna should be installed
as shown in Figure 2.3 on page 24. To install the antenna turn it
counter clockwise; to remove the antenna turn it clockwise.
Note: This procedure in not necessary for the following netpad
models since they house internal antennas within their enclosures: Models 5121, 5122, 5321, 5322, 5521, 5522, 5721,
and 5722.

2.2.2 Use Of The Soft Protective Case
Figure 2.4 Insertion Of netpad In Case
Important: The netpad and protective case have been tested to
ensure compliance with the latest FCC RF exposure
guidelines. For continued compliance when using
the netpad and case combination, the face shown
should be fitted against the body! The user must not
modify the case in any way.
24
Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 Quick Start Guide
Figure 2.5 Protective Case Position On Body
2.3 Power Management
The netpad is powered by a Lithium Ion rechargeable battery pack,
which under optimal operating conditions will provide power for a
full shift (for details, see the netpad User Manual). The netpad can
be powered from AC when used in the docking station (see page 55).
When the netpad is powered from the docking station, it will also
charge the battery pack.
Note: How long your batteries last will depend upon how you use
your netpad. The netpad will use considerably more battery
power when you have the brightness turned up, are using
files stored on a multimedia card, or are using Infrared.
You can take steps to help prolong your battery’s life:
• Turn the screen brightness down.
• Set the Power Saving Schemes timeouts to the shortest
possible length. The least amount of power is consumed
Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 Quick Start Guide
25
during the Suspend state (see page 35).
• Use files on the internal disk instead of an MMC, as the
netpad requires more power to write to the multimedia
card.
• Turn Flight Mode ON to conserve power when radio
communications or the PCMCIA card are not needed
(see “Flight Mode Settings” on page 37).
2.3.1 Battery Care
Fitting The Battery
Before you can use the netpad you must fit the battery—slide it into
place until it clicks, as shown in Figure 2.6 on page 27.
Important: Take care when replacing batteries! Always switch
off the netpad before removing the main battery.
The netpad will warn you when its main battery is
getting low, in plenty of time to change/charge it. The
backup battery is designed to maintain the memory
for several hours. However, prolonged reliance on
the backup battery does reduce its life.
Charging The netpad Battery Pack
To charge the battery, attach the battery pack to the netpad and place
the complete netpad in a netpad docking station (for instructions,
please refer to page 55), or place the battery in one of the optional
battery chargers. The standard (1800 mAh) netpad battery will normally be fully charged within 4 hours.
26
Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 Quick Start Guide

Prolonging Battery Life
When your netpad is switched off, it is on “Suspend” and will continue to use a small amount of battery power. If you are going to
leave your netpad switched off for a long period of time, you are
advised to back up your data beforehand because the batteries will
eventually run out. Details on battery usage and life are available in
the netpad User Manual.
Internal Backup Battery
The netpad has a rechargeable backup battery designed to retain data
while the main battery pack is charging or changed over. The backup
battery is trickle charged from the main battery pack and has a
limited lifespan. To maximize the life of the backup battery, avoid
excessive discharging and recharging of the backup battery by
keeping the netpad battery pack fully charged.
The backup battery is not user-replaceable. If the backup battery
requires replacement, the netpad must be returned to a Psion
Teklogix approved service centre.
Important: If both the main battery pack and the backup battery
are allowed to fully discharge, you will lose all your
information on the internal disk. However, some of
your data can be protected from loss using the Total
Recall application (see the netpad User Manual
for details).
2.3.2 Power Properties

Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 Quick Start Guide
Power Saving Schemes
The Schemes tab accesses the power states: Dim, Stand-By and Suspend. These states can be enabled after an elapsed time range, that
can be set depending on whether the netpad is on battery power or
external power.
Figure 2.9 Power Properties: Schemes
Note: The Power Properties Schemes settings are cumulative—
that is, to determine when the netpad enters ‘Suspend’ state,
the unit waits for the ‘Dim’ state to elapse, followed by the
‘Stand-By’ state and then, once the ‘Suspend’ state time has
elapsed, ‘Suspend’ state is activated.
When setting the Dim, Stand-By, and Suspend states, keep the following in mind. Because the netpad ‘wakes up’ from the Dim and
Stand-By states almost instantaneously following any user input
(button press, screen tap), the timeouts you set will not slow user
activity. The sum of the Dim, Stand-By, and Suspend timeouts
should be selected carefully since the netpad will go to sleep (appear
off) when this time has elapsed, saving battery power. The length of
Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 Quick Start Guide
31
the timeouts should be kept to a minimum to help conserve battery
life. The least amount of power is consumed during the Suspend state.
Setting any of these timeouts to Never does not affect the other timeout options, but will adversely affect the battery run time. If all three
timeouts are set to Never, the netpad will remain on.
To further reduce power consumption, carefully consider the duration of time that the display backlight is ON or turned up (see “Backlight Properties” on page 44).
The following are the default values for the power schemes options:

Table 2.2 Power Schemes Default Values
Power Scheme
The Power Scheme tab specifies the settings for the two ‘power
schemes’ named AC Power or Battery Power. These power
schemes group settings are used when the netpad is running on battery power or when it is connected to external power, allowing you
to specify the settings for Inactivity Timer based on last, Switch to
Dim, Switch to Stand-By, and Switch to Suspend.
32
Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 Quick Start Guide
Inactivity Timer Based On Last
This parameter allows you to choose what type of event is monitored
by Power Management. If you select User Event, the Inactivity
Timer for switching into Stand-By or Suspend is started from the last
time you press a Navigation button, a function key, or use the touchscreen.
“System Events” include activity on the serial port, an active radio
session, IrDA activity, or an active application. If you select User/
System Event, then the Inactivity Timer starts from the last time a
User Event occurred or the last time System activity occurred. This
parameter has no impact on the Switch to Dim Inactivity Timer.
Figure 2.10 Power Schemes: Inactivity Timer based on last
Switch To Dim
During the Dim state the backlight brightness is turned down after
the specified time has elapsed if the netpad does not receive any user
input, including activities such as a screen tap—any user-initiated
activity. When the netpad enters the Dim state, it begins to monitor
the time specified in the Switch to Stand-By menu (see Figure 2.11
on page 34). Tap the screen to bring the netpad out of Dim state.
Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 Quick Start Guide

Switch To Stand-By
In Stand-By state, the netpad turns off the display, but the programs
and netpad hardware remain active. Stand-By is activated when the
time specified in the Switch to Dim and the Switch to Stand-By
options have elapsed without any activity. The netpad then begins to
monitor the Suspend time. Press the power button to put the netpad
into Stand-By state. Press the button again to wake up the unit.
Figure 2.12 Power Schemes: Stand-By
34
Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 Quick Start Guide
Switch to Suspend
Once the time specified in the Dim and the Stand-By states have
elapsed, the netpad begins to count down the time specified in the
Switch to Suspend option (see Figure 2.13). When the time in the
Suspend option elapses, the unit enters Suspend state.
In Suspend state, the netpad CPU suspends all activity, turns off the
display, and goes into a low power state. The state of the device
(RAM contents) is preserved.
Select Suspend from the Start Menu or hold down the power button
for 4 seconds to put the netpad into Suspend state. Press the power
button to wake up the unit. You can also enable a screen tap to wake
the unit from Suspend by checking that option box below the Switch

2.9 How To Reset The netpad
If you find that you can’t exit a program normally, right-click on the
taskbar and select Task Manager from the context menu. Select the
task that appears to be unresponsive and click on the End Task button.
If this does not work, or if your netpad appears to have “locked up”,
you can always perform a “soft reset”. This should restart your netpad while preserving most of your information. It is worth trying a
soft reset if the keys on the netpad do not appear to respond, or if the
netpad appears to switch on and you are sure that the batteries are
good, but the screen is otherwise blank.
To Perform A Soft Reset
Gently press the stylus onto the Reset button. This is located inside
the card slot door cover to the side of the MMC slot (Figure 2.22).
MMC
SIM Card
Reset Button
Figure 2.22 Reset Button Location
Press the On/Off button to restart the netpad—you will hear two
beeps during boot-up to indicate the reset. After a soft reset, any
46
Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 Quick Start Guide
changes to open files will be lost. Your other files on the internal disk
will almost always be safe.
It is possible (although unlikely) that performing a soft reset after a
program failure may cause the netpad to lose the information on the
internal disk; it could even prevent the reset from working at all. If
this happens, you will have to perform a “hard reset”.
Important: A hard reset resets the netpad completely, and all
information on the Internal disk will be lost. Some of
your data can be protected from loss using the Total
Recall application (see the netpad User Manual
for details).
To Perform A Hard Reset
1. Remove the netpad from the docking station (if applicable).
2. Remove the main battery.
3. Press and hold down the On/Off button (on the top of
the unit).
4. While continuing to hold down the On/Off button, press
and release the Reset button
5. Release the On/Off button.
6. Refit the battery into the netpad—the unit will power up
and you will hear one beep during boot-up.
Note: Hard resetting the netpad will delete the partnership on the
netpad. You may delete and re-create the partnership on the
PC, or create another partnership with a new name. Refer to
ActiveSync’s online help for more details on this operation.

2.10 The Scanner
Where fitted with a bar code scanner, the netpad may be used to read
industry standard bar codes. To scan a bar code, point the scanner
window at the bar code, ensuring that the scanner window is not
obstructed and that you are between 5 cm (2 in.) and 60 cm (24 in.)
from the bar code. Activate the scanner as instructed in the software
application’s operating instructions. The scanning beam should be
energized until a successful decode is achieved or three seconds have
elapsed. For detailed information on bar codes, scanner properties, and
configuration, please refer to the netpad User Manual.

screen. You must calibrate successfully to continue. After calibration,
you will see the Time/Date menu. Input the correct time, date, and
time zone information. Click the OK button in Time/Date menu to
close and save your changes. You will then see the Windows Desktop.

2.11.2 Starting Programs
When you open a file, the correct program for this file is started
automatically. You can also start programs by clicking on them from
the Start Menu. You don’t have to close one program before opening
another. The taskbar displays all open applications.
2.11.3 Programs And Files
To create a new file:
open the program, select the New command on the File menu
and type in the name for the new file (see “Entering Information”, below). The file will now be created. You can start entering your information. It is a good idea to keep related files
together in a folder, to make the files easier to find later.
2.11.4 Entering Information
You can enter information and complete tasks using the stylus or the
on-screen keyboard. The on-screen
keyboard is displayed by clicking the
Keyboard
50
soft key.
Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 Quick Start Guide
To move the keyboard, drag it by the title bar. The on-screen English
language keyboard is the netpad’s default keyboard. To choose the
language keyboard to use, and to set the keyboard preferences, go to
the Control Panel and open the Input Panel icon. This will open the
Input Panel Properties menu.
The dropdown menu will show all available keyboards.
Clicking on the Options button will let
you set such preferences as button size and
special gestures for use with the keyboard.

2.11.5 Using Menus
You can usually select a menu command to perform tasks.
• Click on the menu you want to access from the menu bar.
• Tap on the menu names and commands, or use the arrow keys
to move around the menus. Tap on commands marked with a
or press the right arrow key to see further commands.
A menu command with three dots at the end means that selecting the
command will display a “dialogue” where you enter more information (see “Using Dialogues”, below).
If a menu command is grey, it means that it’s not currently available;
e.g. you cannot Copy unless you have first selected something to copy.
2.11.6 Using Dialogues
A “dialogue” appears when you need to make selections and enter
further information. You can move between dialogue items by tapping on them, or using the up and down arrow keys. Dialogues contain one or more of the following elements:
Textbox:
where you just type in your information. When you tap in the
textbox, you will need to open the on-screen keyboard to
enter text.
Dropdown:
where you select from a number of options. You will see left
and right arrows around the current selection; you can change
the selection by tapping on the arrows, by pressing the left
and right arrow keys, or by typing the first letter of the option
you want.
52
Psion Teklogix netpad Windows CE .NET 4.2 Quick Start Guide
Checkbox:
where you make a choice between selecting an option or not
selecting it. Just tap on the checkbox, or press the left and right
arrow keys to add or remove a checkmark.
Radio buttons:
where you make one choice from a number of options. Just tap
on an option, or use the left and right arrow keys to make a
selection.
If an item is grey, it is currently not available. For example, if you do
not have a transflective display, the Backlight On checkbox in Backlight Properties will be greyed out.
Some dialogues comprise a number of “pages”, each page has a
“tab” at the top. Tap on the tab, or move the highlight to the tab
name, to go to that page. You can also move a dialogue around the
screen by holding the stylus on the dialogue title bar and dragging it
across the screen.

Dialogue Buttons
Dialogues usually include standard buttons such as Ok and X. Some
buttons have a standard keypress equivalent:
• Usually, you can click on the OK button or press the Enter
key if you want to save information and remove the dialogue.
• Click on the Cancel button, the X button, or press the Esc
key if you want to close the dialogue without saving the
information.
• For dialogues that ask a question, you can click on the Yes
button or press the Y key for ‘yes’; click on the No button, press
the N key, or press the Esc key for ‘no’.
2.11.7 Copying Information Between Programs
You can insert information created in one program into a different
program. For example, you may want to compose text in Wordpad
before copying it into an e-mail message in the Inbox.
If you try to insert an object into a program that is not designed to
handle that type of object, you will be unable to Paste. Trying to
copy a file from Windows Explorer into a Wordpad document will
not work because Wordpad will keep the Paste option greyed out
until it detects that text is ready to be pasted.

3. The netpad Docking Station
This section describes the netpad docking station. The docking station
is used as a convenient “drop-in” holder for the netpad, supplying
power for device operation, battery charging, and communications.
3.1 Using The Docking Station
The netpad docking station provides a permanently connected holder
for the netpad. The power jack is on the front and the serial communication sockets are situated at the right of the docking station.
The connector to the netpad faces upwards from the middle of the
station. This connector mates with the connector on the underside of
the netpad to provide power. Place the netpad in the docking station
and it will begin charging.

To insert the netpad into the docking station, align the two devices,
and press down on the netpad until the connection is made. To eject,
press down on the release button at the top of the docking station.
The netpad will be pushed up and out of the docking station.
While the netpad is in the docking station, the communications port
on the netpad can still be used. The docking station communications
port is also available for convenience.
You can rotate the orientation of the docking station on its stand.
Hold the top of the docking station in one hand and the bottom in the
other. Lift the top part to release it and rotate through 90°. When you
let go of the top part, it will click into place.
3.2 Communications Settings
When performing PC communications, it is necessary to define the
communication settings.
In the PC Connection icon in the Control Panel, verify that the
checkbox that allows connection to the desktop is checked.
• Serial Port 3 specifies using the RS 232 communications
port on the netpad.
• Docking Station specifies using the RS 232 communications
port on the docking station.
• Infrared Port specifies using the IR port on the back of
the netpad.
To change the connection type, click on the Change... button and
select the connection from the dropdown list.
