INTRODUCTION

INTRODUCTION
Datalogic renews its range of industrial laser scanners introducing the Dragon™
family: Dragon™ Desk and Dragon™ Mobile. Robustness and ergonomics remain
unsurpassed: clearly audible beeper and bright "good read" LEDs for areas where
noise levels are normally high; the aim mode, which helps point to the right code, has
now been extended to the whole Dragon™ family. Optical parts are completely
suspended on shock absorbers and a careful choice of the body materials, such as
the co-moulded rubber, protect the Dragon™ from damage due to "falls".
New enhanced architecture, based on an M16 high-speed microprocessor, enables
exceptional performance for promptness and reading speed of standard codes as
well as the ability to read poorly printed and damaged codes. Puzzle Solver
Technology™, a patent from Datalogic, adds further strength to the Dragon™
powerful engine.
In all applications where mobility is a value, the new Dragon™ M represents the key
to increase productivity and flexibility in the working area. Dragon™ M
communicates through a low power, licence free radio in the 433 MHz band
(910 MHz for USA version) and allows bi-directional communication between the
base station and the host. Dragon™ M also includes a display and a 3 push-button
keypad. Thanks to these features, the operator can receive information from the host,
interact with the central system and visualise the code read. The cordless system
offers scalable solutions to solve simple applications and complex projects:
•
Point to point: each gun is associated with its own base station;
•
Multipoint: up to 32 guns transmit data to one base station;
•
Network: to cover a wide area, connecting up to 16 bases and 512 guns
simultaneously working in automatic roaming.
Dragon™ M is 100% compatible with STAR-System™, the new Datalogic RF narrow
band solution for mobile applications that provides the widest family of narrow band
devices on the market.
Your Dragon™ reader is supplied with its own Quick Reference Manual, which
provides connection, diagrams, reading diagrams, basic application parameter
settings, default values, and specific technical features. You can use either the Quick
Reference Manual or this Manual for initial configuration in order to set the default
values and select the interface for your application. This manual provides all the
necessary information for complete mechanical installation and system software
configuration.

NETWORK CONNECTIONS
OM3000 Network Connectors
The multidrop network is a bus system which is propagated from one OM-3000
cradle to another using individual cables. This is possible thanks to the RS485
connector on the front panel of the cradle.
Power Supply
RS485
(OM-3000 only)

All cradles are connected together within the bus system through the Datalogic
RS485 splitter cable (CAB-428, part number 90A051950), which must be inserted in
the RS485 cradle connector.
Obviously cable length is to be kept to a minimum as with all bus systems.

INSTALLATION
2.8.2
Network Cabling
The Multidrop line is made using RJ45 connectors and a cable having the following
specifications:
•
twisted pair AWG 24 wires
•
120 Ω impedance
•
maximum network cable length 1200 meters

When wiring the multidrop cables, note the following:
Pin 8 (or 7) can be connected only if the power has to be propagated from a cradle to a
STARGATE™ base station or STAR-Box™ converter via the cable.
Pins 5 (or 4) should always be connected as reference ground.
To avoid excessive voltage drop, it is recommended not to propagate power between
OM-3000 cradles when used as battery chargers but to supply each cradle
individually. The total number of devices, which can be connected to a single power
supply, depends on the power supply voltage, the wire length and resistance and
therefore the voltage drop. Do NOT connect VDC+ between network devices that are
individually powered.

DRAGON™ DX31/MX31
2.8.3
Network Termination
The first and last cradles of the chain (the two ends of the bus) must be properly
terminated. The cradle has an internal terminator that can be selected via jumper.
For this selection you must open the device.
No Termination
Static
Dynamic
Terminator for Multidrop Network
Static termination works for all network configurations. However, the network is
always under load even when no data transmission takes place.
Dynamic termination can be used for baud rates at or above 38400 and provides less
load on the network when idle.

DRAGON™ MX31 BATTERY MAINTENANCE
2.9.1
Battery Charging
Once the system is connected and powered, you can place the Dragon™ Mx31 into
the cradle to charge the battery.
When the reader is correctly inserted in the cradle, the "Reader" red LED on the cradle
goes on to indicate that the battery is charging. The "Reader" green LED on the cradle
goes on when the battery is completely charged.
2.9.2
Replacing Dragon™ Mx31 Batteries
To change the batteries in your Dragon™ Mx31 scanner, press the black button or
unscrew the fixing screw on the handle cover and extract the battery pack from the
reader handle.

In this layout the OM-30X0 cradle is connected by a dedicated cable using the RS232
interface to a C-BOX connection box as part of a fixed scanner network. This allows the
flexibility of a hand-held reading station integrated into a variety of fixed scanning
applications so that all readers (both fixed and hand-held), in the system provide
communications to the Host.
The various C-BOX models provide many interface types for the Host system such as
RS232, RS485, Profibus.

MULTIDROP STAR-SYSTEM™ NETWORK LAYOUTS
Even though many stand alone systems can operate in the same physical area without
interfering with each other, it may be desirable to bridge data from multiple base
stations in a network to a single Host. Dragon™ M131 readers are compatible with
STAR-System™ networks. These networks provide seamless active roaming for any

WEDGE, or PEN Emulation). The Master is then connected to the slaves in the RS485
network. In this way the slave cradles provide communications between a single Host
and all readers in the system. STARGATE™ base stations can also be used as slaves
in this network. The devices at the ends of the network must be terminated (see par.

3.2.3
Master OM-3000 Network Troubleshooting
Two diagnostic strings can be sent via RS232 from the Host to the Master cradle in
order to have feedback about the network itself.
#+LSlave
Returns a list of all the Slaves recognized at boot up.
Example:
In a network where the Master cradle has address 0188 and one Slave cradle with
address 0001, the response is:
188
1
#+Alive<xxxx>
Executes a continuous Alive request to the slave xxxx in order to monitor the
performance of the connection. A diagnostic message is displayed on the Host.
Example:
If this command is sent for slave cradle with address 0032, the response is:
/*32: OM-30X0 SOFTWARE RELEASE 1.00 20/10/2006*/
if there are no communication errors
/*32: FAIL*/
if there are communication errors.
To exit from this command, reset the system by cycling power to the Master cradle.

CONFIGURATION METHODS
Reading Configuration Barcodes
This manual can be used for complete setup and configuration of your reader by
following the setup procedures in this chapter (see par. 4.2 for an overview).
If you wish to change the default settings, this manual provides complete
configuration of your reader in an easy way.
To configure your reader:
1) Open the folded page in Appendix C with the hex-numeric table and keep it
open during the device configuration.
2) Read the Enter Configuration code ONCE, available at the top of each page
of configuration.
3) Modify the desired parameters in one or more sections following the
procedures given for each group.
4) Read the Exit and Save Configuration code ONCE, available at the top of
each page of configuration.
Reference notes describing the operation of the more complex parameters are given

A rapid configuration procedure has been devised for point-to-point applications
where a single reader is associated exclusively with its own OM-30x0 base station
and where it is not necessary to set the Date and Time parameters.
A special pre-printed bind-address label provided in the OM-30x0 base station
package can be used to bind the Dragon™ M131 reader to the base station with the
address coded on the label. The address is also written numerically on the label to be
easily recognized. Valid addresses are in the range from 0000 to 1999. Make sure
that all cradles used in the same area have different addresses.
To rapidly configure your point-to-point application:
1.
Apply the bind-address label onto the OM-30x0 base station as indicated in
the OM-30x0 Quick Reference Manual.
2.
When the OM-30X0 cradle is connected and powered, read the BindAddress label to pair the Dragon™ M131 to the OM-30X0 cradle.
The green LED on the Dragon™ M131 will blink: the reader is ready to be
positioned onto the cradle.

Windows 98 (and later)
Mac OS 8.0 (and later)
IBM POS for Windows
4690 Operating System
USB Start-up
As with all USB devices, upon connection, the Host performs several checks by
communicating with the device. During this phase normal operations are suspended
(the LED on the Dragon™ D131 reader blinks). Two basic conditions must be met
before the device is ready, the correct USB driver must be loaded and sufficient
power must be supplied to the reader.
For all systems, the correct USB driver for the
default USB-KBD interface is included in the
Host Operating System and will either be loaded
automatically or will be suggested by the O.S.
and should therefore be selected from the dialog
box (the first time only).
Normally the Host supplies sufficient power to
the device and the start-up phase ends
correctly. (The reader's LED stops blinking and
the reader emits the beep OK signal).
In rare cases, if the Host does not supply
sufficient power to the device, a dialog box will
appear on the Host and the device will be
blocked (the reader's LED continues blinking). In
this case, disconnect the USB device cable at
the Host (the reader's LED stops blinking), and
then try a different USB port as indicated by the
Operating System message. (The device emits
the beep OK signal. You can now read codes).

KEYBOARD SETTING
ALPHANUMERIC KEYBOARD SETTING
The device (reader or cradle) can be used with terminals or PCs with various keyboard types
and nationalities through a simple keyboard setting procedure.
The type of computer or terminal must be selected before activating the keyboard setting
command.
Keyboard setting consists of communicating to the device how to send data corresponding to
the keyboard used in the application. The keys must be set in a specific order.
Press and release a key to set it.
Some characters may require more than one key pressed simultaneously during normal use
(refer to the manual of your PC or terminal for keyboard use). The exact sequence must be
indicated to the reader in this case pressing and releasing the different keys.
Example:
If one has to press the "Shift" and "4" keys simultaneously on the keyboard to transmit the
character "$" to the video, to set the "$", press and release "Shift" then press and release "4".
Each pressed and released key must generate an acoustic signal on the device; otherwise
repress the key. Never press more than one key at the same time, even if this corresponds to
the normal use of your keyboard.
Press "Backspace" to correct a wrong key entry. In this case the device emits 2 beeps.
Note: "CAPS LOCK" and "NUM LOCK" must be off before starting the keyboard setting
procedure. "SHIFT" must be repressed for each character and cannot be substituted by
"CAPS LOCK".

Read the code above.
Press the keys shown in the following table according to their numerical order.

WEDGE
Some ASCII characters may be missing as this depends on the type of keyboard: these are
generally particular characters relative to the various national symbologies. In this case:
•
The first 4 characters (Shift, Alt, Ctrl, and Backspace) can only be substituted with
keys not used, or substituted with each other.
•
characters can be substituted with other single symbols (e.g. "SPACE") even if not
included in the barcode set used.
•
characters can be substituted with others corresponding to your keyboard.
The device signals the end of the procedure with 2 beeps indicating the keys have been
registered.

AIM standard identifiers are not defined for all codes: the X identifier is assigned to the
code for which the standard is not defined. The y value depends on the selected options
(check digit tested or not, check digit tx or not, etc.).
•
When customizing the Datalogic Standard code identifiers, 1 or 2 identifier characters can
be defined for each code type. If only 1 identifier character is required, the second character
must be selected as FF (disabled).
•
The code identifier can be singly disabled for any code by simply selecting FF as the first
identifier character.
•

characters to add or delete:
Conditions:
•
Adjustment is only performed on the barcode data, the Code Identifier and Code Length
Transmission fields are not modified by the field adjustment parameter.
•
If the field setting would subtract more characters than exist in the barcode, the subtraction
will take place only to code length 0.
•
You can set up to a maximum of 10 different field adjustments on the same barcode family
or on different barcode families.

Code selections may be performed according to two different procedures:
-
Auto-configuration, allowing an automatic recognition and selection of the code families
to be read;
-
Manual configuration, requiring configuration and selection of each code family to be
read.
AUTO-CONFIGURATION
The following codes do not require reading the Enter and Exit configuration codes.
In auto-configuration mode the reader enters a particular state, during which it reads,
recognizes and saves all information received from the decoding of an existing code (with the
exception of MSI, Code 49 and Code 16k code types). In this way, the code families will be
automatically configured.
It is possible to configure up to 10 code types, whose length is variable and check digit ignored.
If reading different codes belonging to the same family, information about the last code will
overwrite the information about the previous one.
Follow the given procedure to auto-configure the desired code families:
If no code is read during the auto-configuration procedure (step ), the
configuration will be empty and therefore the reader will be unable to read
codes.
CAUTION
Read the following code to enter the auto-configuration mode:

Ì#+AUTOWÎ

Read the following code to save the configuration automatically and return to the reader's
normal functioning:

If you need to change the configuration, repeat the auto-configuration procedure, follow the
manual configuration by setting the parameters for each single code family or read the "Restore

restored.

Dragon™ D131 Readers
This parameter sets a transmission protocol in which the Host responds to the reader

of good reception or the NACK character (15 HEX) requesting re-transmission, in the
case of bad reception.

ACK or NACK
ACK/NACK enabled
If the reader does not receive an ACK or NACK, transmission is ended after the RX
Timeout (see par. 5.1.4).
When ACK/NACK protocol is enabled, FIFO must be disabled manually, see par.
5.1.3.
Dragon™ M131 Readers
The transmission protocol takes place between reader, cradle and Host. The reader
passes its data (code read) to the cradle, which sends it to the Host. The
management of responses (from Host or cradle) depends on the Transmission Mode
parameter, see par. 5.9.3.
In the following descriptions the completed transmission is indicated by the Beeper
Control for Radio Response parameter with its default setting to Normal, see par.

character is received by the OM-30X0 does the reader respond with the good
reception tone.
If the OM-30X0 does not receive an ACK or NACK, transmission is ended after the
RX Timeout, see par. 5.1.4. See also Radio Protocol Timeout, par. 5.9.1.
When ACK/NACK protocol is enabled, FIFO must be disabled manually, see par.

5.1.3
FIFO
Dragon™ D131 Readers
This parameter determines whether data (barcodes) are buffered on a First In First
Out basis allowing faster data collection in certain cases for example when using
slow baud rates and/or hardware handshaking.
If the FIFO buffering is enabled, codes are collected and sent out on the serial line in
the order of acquisition. About 800 characters can be collected (buffer full), after
which the reader signals an error and discards any further codes until the
transmission is restored.
If the FIFO buffering is disabled, each code must be transmitted before another one
can be read.
Dragon™ M131 Readers
If enabled, the OM-30X0 collects all messages sent by Dragon™ M131 and sends
them in order of acquisition to the connected Host.
If disabled, Dragon™ M131 blocks message transmission until the OM-30X0 has
completed transmission towards the Host.

DRAGON™ D131/M131

RX Timeout
When the RS232 interface is selected, the Host can be used to configure the device
by sending it command strings (see Appendix A).
This parameter can be used to automatically end data reception from the Host after
the specified period of time.
If no character is received from the Host, after the timeout expires, any incomplete
string (any string not terminated by <CR>) is flushed from the device buffer.

PEN PARAMETERS
Minimum Output Pulse
This parameter sets the duration of the output pulse corresponding to the narrowest
element in the barcode. In this way the code resolution is controlled by the signal
sent to the decoder, independently of the physical resolution of the code read.
The shortest pulse (200 µs) corresponds to a high-resolution code emulation and
therefore a shorter transfer speed to the decoder (for decoders able to work on high
resolution codes). Likewise, longer pulses correspond to low-resolution code
emulation and therefore a longer transfer time to the decoder.
5.2.2
Conversion to Code 39 and Code 128
Dragon™ D131 Series Readers
When using these readers it is possible to convert all codes to Code 39. By disabling
this option the decoded codes will be transmitted in their original format; except for
the following codes, which are ALWAYS converted into Code 39 format:
MSI, Code 11, Code 16K, Code 49, RSS.
Dragon™ M131 Series Readers
When using these readers it is possible to choose between converting the decoded
codes into either Code 39 format or Code 128 format. It is not possible to disable
conversion.

Inter-Block Delay
For the PEN Emulation interface, data are sent to the Host in fixed size blocks of 20
characters each. The inter-block delay parameter allows setting a delay between
each block sent to the Host.
5.3
5.3.1
NETWORK PARAMETERS
Slave Address Range First/Last
These parameters define the valid addresses for the Slave cradles on the network.
Valid values are in the range 0 to 1999. However, the maximum number of cradles in
a single network is 16, (including the Master if present). All cradles in the system
must have different addresses.
To reduce system boot time, it is recommended to number the Slaves consecutively,
while it is not necessary that the Master cradle address is contained in the range.
The network addresses correspond to the radio addresses, see par. 4.7.
At system power-up, the Master searches for and initializes all the Slaves found in
the valid address range. During this phase the yellow LED on the Master cradle
blinks. The time to complete the start up procedure varies depending on the
complexity of the network but is typically between a few seconds to a few minutes.
Start up cannot be interrupted. At the end of this procedure the system will be
operative and can collect data from all devices.
CAUTION
5.3.2
All Slaves must be powered up either before or together with the
Master. Slaves successively powered will not be recognized by
the system even if their address is in the specified range.
Network Warning Message
The Master cradle can transmit warning messages to the Host regarding some
network errors.
/*Slave xxxx not responding*/: when the Master can no longer communicate
with the specified Slave previously identified at start up.
/*Frame out of sequence for terminal xxxx*/: if a gun is sending data
packets out of sequence. This can happen if there are transmission problems
on the network (either connection or communication), or if the gun has
correctly transmitted data to a device not on the network (gun configuration
error).
144
REFERENCES
The message is sent in the following format:
"Message" CR LF
5.3.3
Reception Warning Message
The Master cradle can transmit warning messages to the Host regarding wrong
reception of data. Example:
/*Two-Ways Out of Sequence!(.....)*/
This message is transmitted to the Host by the Master cradle when the
Master cradle receives a closing string from the Host for a Two-way tx
communication, but this was either not open or already closed, therefore the
data will be lost. See par. 5.9.3.
5.3.4
Master Header/Terminator Selection
In addition to the standard header/terminator selection, the Master cradle can add its
own header/terminator to the entire message sent to the Host.
In the STAR-System™ network headers and terminators for all RF Devices are
disabled by default.
The Master header and terminator default values are as follows depending on the
interface selection towards the Host:
RS232:
no header, terminator CR-LF
WEDGE:
no header, terminator ENTER
See par. 5.4.1 and 5.4.2.
5.4
DATA FORMAT
For an overview of Message Formatting see Chapter 6.
5.4.1
Header/Terminator Selection
The header/terminator selection is not effected by the reading of the restore default
code. In fact, header and terminator default values depend on the interface selection:
RS232:
no header, terminator CR-LF
WEDGE:
no header, terminator ENTER
145
DRAGON™ D131/M131
These default values are always restored through the reading of RS232 or WEDGE
interface selection code, see chapter 2.
For the WEDGE interface, the following extended keyboard values can also be
configured:

For all devices using IBM AT (compatible) Wedge or USB-KBD interfaces, all values from 9C to
FE send the relative simulated keypress when available or else the relative ALT-Mode
sequence. See the Hex to Character Conversion Table in Appendix C.
For all devices using other Wedge interfaces, all values from 9C to FE send the Space
character.

Address Stamping
It is possible to include the reader address in the message sent to the host. The
Reader Address Stamping and the Cradle Address Stamping parameters consist of a
4-digit number in the range 0000 to 1999.
For message output format, refer to chapter 6.
5.4.4
Address Delimiter
The Address Delimiter allows a character to be included to separate the reader
Address stamping field from the next field in the message. Any character can be
included in the hexadecimal range from 00 to FE.
For message output format, refer to chapter 6.
154
REFERENCES
5.4.5
Time Stamping Format
The Time Stamping parameter sets the format for hour and date information. It consists
of 1 or 2 groups of numbers, each one made up of 6 decimal digits.
For example, setting the Hour/Minutes/Seconds/Month/Day/Year format, the
information 17:03:16 on June 12, 2002 will be formatted as 170316061202.
5.4.6
Time Stamping Delimiter
The Time Stamping Delimiter allows a character to be included to separate the Time

5.5.1
POWER SAVE
Sleep State
When using interfaces other than USB, this mode allows the µP in the reader to enter
a “Sleep” state for minimum power consumption. For D-series readers, this command
is only valid when hardware trigger type is selected.
Before entering Sleep mode, the following are verified:
•
no commands coming from Host
•
no data being transmitted to Host
•
Enter Sleep Timeout ended (see par. 5.5.2)
To exit Sleep mode press the trigger.
For M131 series readers, sleep state is entered immediately after reading a code and
is not configurable. To exit Sleep mode press the trigger.
When using the USB interface, this mode allows the device to manage Selective
Suspend conditions generated by the Host Operating System in which optimizing low
power consumption (ex. Windows Stand-by). It is possible to exit the Suspend mode
either from the Host (ex. moving the mouse during Stand-by) or through the barcode
reader. The latter, called Remote Wakeup, makes the device wake up the Host
restoring the communication. Remote Wakeup is possible by pressing the trigger.
155
DRAGON™ D131/M131
5.5.2
Enter Sleep Timeout
For readers that have the Sleep state enabled, this timeout determines when the
reader will enter this state.
5.6
READING PARAMETERS
5.6.1
Trigger Signal
This mode determines how the reading phase is controlled when the hardware
trigger operating mode is selected:
•
trigger active level: the reader goes ON when the trigger is pressed and goes
OFF when it is released
•
trigger active pulse: the reader goes ON at the first trigger press and goes OFF
only at a second press
5.6.2
Trigger Click
When enabled, it activates a "click" sound upon each trigger pressure.
5.6.3
Trigger-Off Timeout
When this timeout is selected, the reader turns OFF automatically after the desired
period of time.
5.6.4
Reads per Cycle
In general, a reading cycle corresponds to the ON + OFF times of a device.
The resulting effects of this parameter on code reading depend on other related
configuration conditions. Here are the definitions of ON and OFF times.
•
•
156
For readers using the software trigger parameter (FLASH MODE), a reading
cycle corresponds to the flash on + flash off times. Code reading takes place
during the flash on time.
For readers using the hardware trigger parameter, a reading cycle corresponds
to a trigger press (ON) + one of the following OFF events:
trigger release (for trigger active level)
a second trigger press (for trigger active pulse)
trigger-off timeout (see par. 5.6.3).
REFERENCES
When one read per cycle is selected, the device decodes only one code during the
ON period and immediately turns the reader OFF. It is only possible to read another
code when the next ON time occurs.
In multiple reads per cycle, the ON period is extended so that the device can
continue decoding codes until an OFF event occurs. For software trigger mode, the
flash on period is immediately reset after each read and therefore extended. If
another code is decoded before the reset flash on period expires, it is again reset
and the effect is that the device remains ON, decoding codes until the flash on or
timeout period expires.
The Safety Time parameter should be used in this case to avoid unwanted multiple
reading of the same code, see par. 5.6.5.
5.6.5
Safety Time
Safety time prevents the device from immediately decoding the same code more
than once. Same code consecutive reading can be disabled requiring the reader to
be removed from the code (no decoding) for at least 400 ms, or a timeout can be set
up to 9.9 seconds before the decoder will accept the same code. Reading is
immediate if the code changes.
The safety time parameter is not applicable when reading stacked codes or when
setting one read per cycle in hardware trigger operating mode, since these settings
require voluntary action by the user.
5.7
DECODING PARAMETERS
CAUTION
5.7.1
These parameters are intended to enhance the decoding capability
of the reader for particular applications. Used incorrectly, they can
degrade the reading performance or increase the possibility of a
decoding error.
Ink-Spread
The ink-spread parameter allows the decoding of codes which are not perfectly
printed because the page texture tends to absorb the ink.
5.7.2
Overflow Control
The overflow control parameter can be disabled when decoding codes printed on
small surfaces, which do not allow the use of an overflow space.
This command does not affect code families 2/5, Code 128 and Code 93.
157
DRAGON™ D131/M131
5.7.3
Interdigit Control
The interdigit control parameter verifies the interdigit spacing for code families
Code 39 and Codabar.
5.8
5.8.1
ADVANCED FORMATTING
Match Conditions
Selecting an Advanced Formatting and specifying a Match restriction (Code Type,
Code Length, Predefined Characters) the code will be transmitted according to the
order of the defined formats.
For example, defining 2 formats where:
•
Format 1: Match Code type = Code128
•
Format 2: Match Code length = 15 and Match with Predefined Characters
“DATA”
a Code128 “DATA:12345ABCDE” with code length 15 will be formatted following the
Format 1.
To send the same code with the Format 2 it is necessary to invert the format order as
follows:
•
Format 1: Match Code length = 15 and Match with Predefined Characters
“DATA”
•
Format 2: Match Code type = Code128
5.9
5.9.1
RADIO PARAMETERS (M131 SERIES ONLY)
Radio Protocol Timeout
This parameter sets the valid time to wait before transmission between the M131
series reader and OM-30X0 cradle is considered failed.
This parameter should be set taking into consideration the radio traffic (number of
readers in the same area).
If the RS232 interface is used with ACK/NACK enabled, this parameter should be at
least equal to the RX Timeout parameter for low traffic environments. It should be
increased if there are many readers in the same area.
It can be set between 2 and 19 seconds.
158
REFERENCES
5.9.2
Power-Off Timeout
If this command is enabled, after the desired timeout in hours, the Dragon™ batteries
are disconnected and all power consumption ceases. To restore power, press the
trigger once. The reader will now be ready to read codes.
Power-off does not affect configuration parameters.
5.9.3
Transmission Mode
This parameter determines whether the reader receives responses or messages from
the Host or not. In One-Way tx mode, neither Host nor cradle responds to the reader.
In Two-Way tx mode, the reader must receive a response from either the cradle or
the Host.
The cradle responds (empty message) to the reader, only after good transmission to
the Host, for the following conditions: ACK/NACK enabled, see par. 5.1.2; WEDGE or
PEN interface. For these conditions, it is suggested to prolong the Radio Protocol
Timeout, see par. 5.9.1.
Enabling Two-Way tx mode temporarily disables FIFO buffering see par. 5.1.3.
159
DRAGON™ D131/M131
With ACK/NACK disabled, the Host responds to the reader (through the cradle) with
an answer message (message to reader display or command to reader), see par. 6.1
and the following figure.
Transmission Mode = Two-Ways

Beeper Control for Radio Response
For M131 series readers, the data entry good read tone normally results in two
beeps; the first indicates that the reader has decoded the code, the second indicates
whether OM-30X0 has received the data.
This can be changed according to the following selections:
♦ Normal: both good decode and good reception are signaled (two beeps).
♦ Only Good Decode: only the first beep indicating a good read is signaled.
♦ Only Good Reception: only the second beep indicating a good reception is
signaled.
♦ Off: Neither good read nor good reception beeps are signaled.
For all configurations, any transmission errors will always be signaled.
5.9.5
Single Store
When single store mode is enabled, if the Dragon™ M131 fails to transmit a code to
the cradle, it enters a special operating mode that prevents the user from reading
barcodes. When such operating mode is entered, the trigger no longer enables
barcode reading but is used to retry transmission itself for the number of attempts
selected in configuration. Once the transmission is successful the reader returns to
the standard mode. If transmission is not successful after the number of configured
attempts, the code is discarded.
Single store may be useful if you often read codes at the limit of the coverage area
and there is a chance that code transmission can fail. In such case single store
allows you to move to a more favorable position or location (i.e. closer to the cradle)
and retry transmission without the necessity of re-reading the code since it is already
stored in the reader.
160
REFERENCES
Conversely, if single store is disabled, and the user wants to retry transmission, the
code must be read again, and therefore the attempt must be made from basically the
same location. If the user gives up, he does not know if the transaction was
successful. (Actually the transmission could have been successful but the cradle may
have been unable to acknowledge the message). There are applications in which
there is no risk of transmission failure. In such cases it may be better to disable
single store so that the user perceives a more consistent behavior of the trigger in
that it always corresponds to code reading.
5.9.6
Batch Mode
This Operating Mode allows storing read codes in the internal gun RAM memory.
The stored codes are transmitted to the base station at a later time according to the
type of batch mode selected.
Batch mode can be enabled either manually (normal batch mode) or automatically.
Normal batch mode temporarily suspends radio communication between gun and
base station allowing codes to be stored in the gun on a FIFO basis. This can be
useful for example, if codes must be read from a location where there is no radio
network. Upon returning to the system working area, this mode requires reading the
Start Normal Batch Transmission barcode to successively transmit the list of
stored codes to the base station. The FIFO management assures that the first code
read will be the first code to be transmitted to the base station.
The Delete Batch Data barcode allows canceling all barcode data stored in the gun.
Automatic batch mode allows codes to be stored in the gun on a FIFO basis
whenever the gun is out of radio range. In this case radio communication is not
suspended and transmission is attempted after each code read. If transmission
cannot be successfully completed, then the code is added to the list. When the gun
returns in range, transmission of the codes to the base station resumes
automatically, according to the selected communication protocol, upon simply
pressing and releasing the trigger or by successfully reading a new code.
Each code is listed on the gun display together with its identifying position number
and its total number of characters. The three keys under the display have the
following function in batch mode:
▲
ENTER
▼
Key
Function
(left) Key
Scroll up in list
(center) Key
Delete highlighted code
(right) Key
Scroll down in list
161
DRAGON™ D131/M131
In batch mode, the selected Transmission Mode determines the behavior of the gun
at the time the list of codes is transmitted. If One-way mode is enabled, the codes are
transmitted one after the other without interruption. In Two-way mode, after
transmitting each code, the gun waits for the Host answer message to be shown on
the display. Therefore, in Two-way transmission mode and normal batch mode, the
Start Normal Batch Transmission barcode must be read after each code to
continue, whereas with automatic batch mode just pull and release the trigger after
each code.
The code which has a transmission pending is shown on the display in reverse video
indicating that it cannot be deleted.
5.9.7
Find Me (Dragon M131 only)
If enabled, after a timeout of a few minutes in which Dragon™ M131 is not used, it
enters stand-by mode and its green LED starts blinking in order to signal its location.
5.10 DISPLAY PARAMETERS (SOME M131 MODELS ONLY)
5.10.1
Display Mode
The user can control the gun display behavior according to the following selections:
Normal mode: When a barcode is read with the gun:
•
•
•
The code is sent to the Host.
The gun display is not cleared. Therefore if any previous data was displayed on
the gun screen it remains.
There is no Local Echo to the gun display.
Clear Display After Decode mode: When a barcode is read with the gun:
•
•
•
The code is sent to the Host.
The gun display is cleared. Therefore if any previous data was displayed on the
gun screen it is cancelled and the screen remains blank.
There is no Local Echo of the code to the gun display.
Local Echo mode: When a barcode is read with the gun:
•
•
•
•
The code is sent to the Host.
The gun display is cleared.
The code is also sent to the gun display (Local Echo).
The cursor is positioned after the last printed character on the gun display.
Host messages sent to the gun are always written to the gun display.

MESSAGE FORMATTING
The system always provides gun to host data communication using the following
message formatting:
Output Message from Dragon™ D131 or Dragon™ M131 Stand Alone Towards Host
[Header] [Gun_Addr] [Gun_Addr_delimiter] ] [Cradle_Addr] [Cradle_Addr_delimiter]
[Time stamp] [Ts_delimiter] [Code ID] [Code Length] CODE [Terminator]
[Items in square brackets are optional.]
Output Message from Dragon™ M131 STAR-System™ Towards Host
[Time stamp] [Ts_delimiter] [Header] [Code ID] [Code Length] CODE [Terminator]
[Items in square brackets are optional.]
For Dragon™ M131 models with display, if the RS232 interface is selected for
communication between the Host and the OM-30X0 cradle, then the following
additional communications between Host and Gun can occur:
•
The Host can send messages to any gun associated with that cradle to control
the Gun's display, LEDs and beeper.
•
The Gun can send up to 3 user-defined characters to the Host using the 3
command keys on the gun.
These communications and their relative message formatting are detailed in the
following paragraphs.
6.1
MESSAGES FROM HOST TO GUN
The general format is:
[Gun_Addr] [Gun_Addr_delimiter]
MESSAGE CR
NOTE:
•
170
If you have enabled the Gun Address Stamping or the Gun Address Delimiter,
you must specify them in every message.
MESSAGE FORMATTING
•
If you have not enabled the Gun Address Stamping or the Gun Address
Delimiter, you must not specify them. In this case all messages will be implicitly
addressed to the 'binded' gun of the cradle directly connected to the serial line.
•
The gun can only receive messages only if two-way mode is enabled. (See par.
5.9.3, “Transmission Mode”, command is on page 132).
•
Messages cannot start with '$+' because they would be interpreted as a
configuration command.
•
You can send a message to the gun only while it is on. This happens when it has
sent a message to the host and the radio timeout has not yet expired. (See par.
5.9.1, "Radio Protocol Timeout"; command is on page 131).
•
If you want to control the gun's beeper from the host, you will also probably want
to disable the good transmission beep that is emitted when the code is received
from the cradle. (See command on page 87).
The message field can store plain text and escape sequences.
•
Escape sequences are interpreted as commands.
•
Plain text is directly printed on the display. If writing beyond the end of line, the
display does not wrap automatically. Extra characters are ignored. Control
characters are not interpreted (i.e. LF, FF, etc.).

•
The cursor row position is not affected by the currently selected font. The
display always has 4 rows, so when writing with the large font, actually two rows
are written to: the current one and the one below it. You will need two ESC E
commands to step from one row to the next when using the large font.
•
The cursor column position is affected by the currently selected font. Therefore,
column 6 is 36 pixels from the left border only if you last selected the 6x8 font;
otherwise it could be 48 or 72 pixels from the left border.

MESSAGE FORMATTING
The LED control escape sequences are intended to activate the LEDs for short
periods of time and can be used in combination with the Beeper. The LED and
Beeper will be controlled by the system after the entire command sequence is
interpreted.
Example:
ESC [ 6 q ESC [ 3 q ESC [ 7 q
Turns on the green LED, emits a good read tone, and
turns off the green LED.
ESC [ 6 q ESC [ 5 q ESC [ 7 q
Turns on the green LED for 100 ms and then turns off
the green LED.

MESSAGES FROM GUN COMMAND KEYS
The Dragon™ M131 series guns with display have 3 command keys that can each
be associated with a character to send to the host.
By pressing the keys on the gun, the associated character with its relative message
formatting is sent to the Host. For example, keys can be used to select items from a
menu sent to the gun display by the application program.
The general format is:
[Header] [Gun_Addr] [Gun_Addr_delimiter] ] [Cradle_Addr] [Cradle_Addr_delimiter]
[Time stamp] [Ts_delimiter] [Code ID] [Code Length] KeyID [Terminator]
[Items in square brackets are optional.]
The messages are handled by the system as if they were barcodes, that's why KeyID
can have so many fields appended to it. If in your application there is some chance of
reading a 1-char barcode identical to KeyID, the way you can distinguish between
the two is to enable the Code ID: The KeyID is the only 1-character long EAN 8
code.
Refer to par. 5.3 for a compete description of the optional message fields in square
brackets.

HOST CONFIGURATION STRINGS
In this section we provide a description of how to modify the device configuration
using serial strings sent from the Host.
This method requires the RS232 interface.
The device configuration can be changed by receiving commands from the Host
through the serial interface. When this method is used, the programming sequence
format is the following:
$+
Command
$-
CR
Carriage return character (0D Hex.)
Exit and Save configuration
Character sequence in following tables
Enter configuration environment
Example:
Multiple command programming sequence:
$+
BG1 BH0
AC410132
$-
CR
Carriage return character (0D Hex.)
Exit and save new configuration
Matrix 2/5 3 bars: no check digit,
variable length code from 1 to 32 characters
Beeper tone 1
Beeper low intensity
Enter configuration environment
Each configuration parameter setting removes the condition previously active for that
parameter.
NOTE
182
The device buffer can contain about 400 characters. If your
programming string goes over this value, you must split it into separate
groups and send each group after a delay of at least 3 seconds to give
the reader time to empty the buffer and interpret the commands.
