Note:
This manual should only be used to make changes in the configuration of
the scanner for specific applications.
The NUSCAN 3200 Series scanners are ready to scan most kinds of barcodes. This
laser barcode scanner does not require software or drivers to operate. The scanner
enters data as keyboard data.
If you are unsure of the scanner configuration or have scanned the incorrect codes,
please scan the “Reset Configuration to Defaults” barcode. This will reset the scanner
to its factory settings.

4. Barcode Symbologies
Barcodes are symbols consisting of a series of bars and spaces which can be applied
to packages, cartons, bottles and other commercial products. The bars and spaces in
each symbol are grouped in such a way to represent a specific ASCII character or
function. The interpretation of these groups is based on a particular set of rules called
Symbologies. Various symbologies have been developed for particular applications.
Some examples are shipping and receiving, manufacturing, retail, healthcare,
transportation, document processing and tracking, and libraries.
NUSCAN 3200 Series Scanners can read most of the popular barcode symbologies
including Code 39, Code 93, Code 128, Code11, Interleaved 2 of 5, UPC-A, UPC-E,
EAN/JAN-8, EAN/JAN-13, Codabar, UPC/EAN/JAN, MSI,……

Buzzer
Exit Window
Handle
Trigger
When a barcode is successfully decoded, the blue LED light of the scanner will turn on
and off and the scanner will beep once. If the barcode is not successfully read, the
LED will show red and the buzzer will not sound.
6. Installation
Insert the plug on the free end of the Communications Cable into the appropriate
connector on the host as below described:
a. USB Connection
Host
b. K/B Connection

c. Serial Port (RS-232) Connection
NOTE: For Serial port (RS-232), please plug the power connector of 5V power adapter
to RS232 cable.

Be sure that Host computer is turned off.
Ensure that all connections are secure.
Turn on your Host.
Aim the scanner at a barcode. Ensure that the scanner is in trigger mode
(default), and press the trigger.
On successful decode, the blue LED light will turn on and off and the scanner will
beep once.
Tip
Do not hold the scanner directly over a barcode at 90˚. Scanning light bounces
directly back into the scanner from the barcode label is known as specular reflection
which will create a "dead zone" where decoding is difficult. Practice a few times to find
what range of angles works best.
Maintenance
Cleaning the scan window is the only maintenance required. A dirty window may
affect scanning accuracy.
Wipe the scanner window gently with a lens tissue or other material suitable for
cleaning optical material.
Do not spray water or other cleaning liquids directly onto the window.

7. Scanning Mode Selection
Trigger Mode (Default)
The scanner becomes inactive as soon as the data is
transmitted. It must be triggered to become active again.
Continuous Mode
When set this code, laser light is always ON. Can read
barcode continuously after code transmission.
Pulse Mode
When set this code, laser light will flash when standby. Can
read barcode continuously after code transmission.
Reset Mode
The reading of the "RESET” label turns all the parameters
back to default values.

12. Programming Guide
If you need to make changes in the configuration of the scanner for specific
applications, a full Programming Guide can be downloaded at:
http://www.adesso.com/productmanuals/UserGuide_NuScan3200.pdf
13. Trouble Shooting
a. Problem: Nothing happens when you follow the operating instructions.
Possible Cause
Interface cables are
loose.
Possible Solution
Check for loose cable connections.
b. Problem: Light comes on, but symbol does not decode.
Possible Cause
Scanner is not
programmed for the
correct bar-code
type.
Possible Solution
Please refer User’s Guide and be sure to select the
correct interface selection and ensure that the
scanner is programmed to read the type of barcode
you are scanning.
Barcode symbol is
unreadable.
Check the symbol to make sure it is not de-faced. Try
scanning test symbols of the same barcode type.
Distance between
scanner and barcode
is incorrect.
Move the scanner closer to or further from the
barcode.
c. Problem: Symbol is decoded, but not transmitted to the host.
Possible Cause
Possible Solution
Scanner is not
programmed for the
correct host type.
Please make sure the scanner is configured to the
appropriate host type by scanning the corresponding
programming barcode on the User’s Guide.
11
d. Problem: Scanned data is incorrectly displayed on the host.
Possible Cause
Scanner is not
programmed to work
with the host.
Possible Solution
Be sure proper host type is selected.
For RS-232, ensure the scanner’s communication
parameters match the host’s settings.
For keyboard emulation configuration, ensure the
system is programmed for the correct keyboard type,
and that the CAPS LOCK key is off.
Be sure editing options (e.g. UPC-E to UPC-A
Conversion) are properly programmed.
