STEP 3 – AUTOLEARNING CONFIGURATION
An autolearning procedure is available to reduce installation time.
Status and diagnostic information are clearly presented by means
of four colored LEDs, whereas the single push button and F1 and
F2 LEDs give immediate access to the following relevant
functions:
•
Positioning (F1) gives visual feedback from the F1 LED to
help center the code in the reader's FOV without external
tools or software programs
•
Auto Learn (F2) to self-detect and auto-configure
calibration and code setting parameters
•
Restore Default (F3) to return to factory default settings
The colors and meaning of the four status LEDs are illustrated in the following table:
PWR (red)
TRIG (yellow)
READ (red)
COM (green)
This LED indicates the device is powered
This LED indicates the external trigger activity
This LED confirms successful reading. It is also used to signal successful startup. At power
on this LED turns on and after a few seconds turns off. If the startup is not successful, this
LED remains on.
This LED indicates active communication on the main serial port.
Auto Learn
If you are configuring your reader using the Auto Learn procedure:
1. Place the desired code in front of the reader at the correct reading distance (depending
on the model, see the Reading Features table in chp 7).
2. Enter the Auto Learn function (F2) by pressing and holding the push button until only the
F2 LED is on.
3. Release the button to enter the Auto Learn function.
Once entered, the reader acquires an image and automatically configures the optimal
Exposure Time and Gain parameters for static reading, as well as detecting and
recognizing the code, which is presented to it. The F2 LED blinks during this process.
4. At the end of the procedure, the new configuration parameters will be stored to
permanent memory, the F2 LED remains on continuously and then the function
automatically exits, the F2 LED turns off.
If the Auto Learn calibration cannot be reached within a short timeout (max. 1 minute),
Matrix-1000™ will exit without saving the configuration parameters, the F2 LED will not
remain on continuously but it will just stop blinking.
To cancel the Auto Learn function without saving the configuration parameters, press and
hold the keypad button at any time during the procedure: the F2 LED will stop blinking.

Figure 4 – Auto Learn Function
Repeat the procedure if needed, to program different code symbologies, however you must
present only one code at a time to the reader.
Matrix-1000™ is able to decode any code symbology in its library with this procedure.
If your application has been configured using Auto Learn, your reader is ready.
If necessary you can use VisiSet™ for advanced reader configuration.
NOTE
NOTE
Autolearning configuration parameters can be saved to temporary memory
only by selecting the "Autolearning Setup>Store Memory" parameter in
VisiSet™.
The Autolearning function on the keypad button can also be disabled by the
user via VisiSet™.
Positioning (Optional)
At the end of the Auto Learn procedure, you can use the Positioning procedure to center the
code with respect to the reader's FOV.
1. While the desired code is in front of the reader at the correct reading distance, enter the
Positioning function (F1) by pressing and holding the push button until only the F1 LED is
on.
2. Release the button to enter the Positioning function.
Once entered, the reader continuously acquires images and gives visual feedback using
the F1 LED to indicate when the code is centered with respect to the reader's FOV. Slow
blinking means that the positioning value must be improved.
3. To obtain the best value in terms of positioning, move the code and/or the reader so as to
position the code as close as possible to the center of the Field of View, keeping the
correct focus distance. Check F1 LED blinking: the best code positioning corresponds to
fast (almost continuous) blinking.
4. After a short timeout the function automatically exits, the F1 LED remains on continuously
and then stops blinking.
If no valid code is present in the FOV, after about 3 minutes, Matrix-1000™ will automatically
exit, the F1 LED will not remain on continuously but it will just stop blinking.
To cancel the Positioning function, press and hold the keypad button at any time during the
procedure: the F1 LED will stop blinking.

Matrix-1000™ is able to decode code labels at a variety of angles, however significant
angular distortion may degrade reading performance.
When mounting Matrix-1000™, take into consideration these ideal label position angles:
Pitch 10° to 20° and Tilt 0°.
Note: Since Matrix-1000™ is omni-directional on the code plane, the Pitch and Skew angles
have the same significance with respect to the code plane. However in some advanced code
reading applications performance can be improved by modifying the Skew angle.
Follow the suggestions below for the best orientation:
The Pitch and Skew angles are represented by the values P and S in Figure 33 and in Figure
34. Position the reader in order to avoid the direct reflection of the light emitted by the Matrix1000™ reader; it is advised to assure at least 10° for one of these angles. In some cases,
such as low contrast or low illumination, it can be useful to use a Pitch or Skew angle = 0°.
Figure 33 - Pitch angle
Figure 34 - Skew angle
The Tilt angle is represented by the value T in Figure 35. Matrix-1000™ can read labels with
any tilt angle.

The following examples show some of the typical conditions occurring during the installation:
Under Exposure:
To correct this result it is recommended to change the following parameters in their order of
appearance:
1. increase the Exposure Time (x 10 µs)
2. increase the Gain
In general, a longer exposure time corresponds to a lighter image but is
susceptible to blurring due to code movement. Exposure time is also
limited by the Internal Lighting mode parameter. Longer esposure times
can be set if the power strobe level is lowered.
NOTE
High gain settings may produce a grainy image that may affect the
decoding process.

GLOSSARY
Barcodes (1D Codes)
A pattern of variable-width bars and spaces which represents numeric or alphanumeric data
in machine-readable form. The general format of a barcode symbol consists of a leading
margin, start character, data or message character, check character (if any), stop character,
and trailing margin. Within this framework, each recognizable symbology uses its own unique
format.
BIOS
Basic Input Output System. A collection of ROM-based code with a standard API used to
interface with standard PC hardware.
Bit
Binary digit. One bit is the basic unit of binary information. Generally, eight consecutive bits
compose one byte of data. The pattern of 0 and 1 values within the byte determines its
meaning.
Bits per Second (bps)
Number of bits transmitted or received per second.
Byte
On an addressable boundary, eight adjacent binary digits (0 and 1) combined in a pattern to
represent a specific character or numeric value. Bits are numbered from the right, 0 through
7, with bit 0 the low-order bit. One byte in memory can be used to store one ASCII character.
Composite Symbologies
Consist of a linear component, which encodes the item's primary data, and an adjacent 2D
composite component, which encodes supplementary data to the linear component.
Dark Field Illumination
Lighting of surfaces at low angles used to avoid direct reflection of the light in the reader’s
lens.
Decode
To recognize a barcode symbology (e.g., Codabar, Code 128, Code 3 of 9, UPC/EAN, etc.)
and analyze the content of the barcode scanned.
Depth of Field
The difference between the minimum and the maximum distance of the object in the field of
view that appears to be in focus.
Diffused Illumination
Distributed soft lighting from a wide variety of angles used to eliminate shadows and direct
reflection effects from highly reflective surfaces.
EEPROM
Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory. An on-board non-volatile memory
chip.
Element
The basic unit of data encoding in a 1D or 2D symbol. A single bar, space, cell, dot.
54
Flash
Non-volatile memory for storing application and configuration files.
Host
A computer that serves other terminals in a network, providing services such as network
control, database access, special programs, supervisory programs, or programming
languages.
Image Processing
Any form of information processing for which the input is an image and the output is for
instance a set of features of the image.
Image Resolution
The number of rows and columns of pixels in an image. The total number of pixels of an
image sensor.
Image Sensor
Device converting a visual image to an electric signal. It is usually an array of Charge
Coupled Devices (CCD) or CMOS pixel sensors.
IEC
(International Electrotechnical Commission): Global organization that publishes international
standards for electrical, electronic, and other technologies.
IP Address
The terminal’s network address. Networks use IP addresses to determine where to send
data that is being transmitted over a network. An IP address is a 32-bit number referred to as
a series of 8-bit numbers in decimal dot notation (e.g., 130.24.34.03). The highest 8-bit
number you can use is 254.
ISO
(International Organization for Standardization): A network of the national standards
institutes of several countries producing world-wide industrial and commercial standards.
LED (Light Emitting Diode)
A low power electronic light source commonly used as an indicator light. It uses less power
than an incandescent light bulb but more than a Liquid Crystal Display (LCD).
LED Illuminator
LED technology used as an extended lighting source in which extra optics added to the chip
allow it to emit a complex radiated light pattern.
Matrix Symbologies (2D Codes)
An arrangement of regular polygon shaped cells where the center-to-center distance of
adjacent elements is uniform. Matrix symbols may include recognition patterns which do not
follow the same rules as the other elements within the symbol.
Multidrop
A communication protocol for connecting two or more readers in a network with a
concentrator (or controller) and characterized by the use of individual device addresses.
Multi-row (or Stacked) Symbologies
Symbologies where a long symbol is broken into sections and stacked one upon another
similar to sentences in a paragraph.
55
RAM
Random Access Memory. Data in RAM can be accessed in random order, and quickly
written and read.
