Introduction
Metrologic’s TECH 8® laser bar code projection scanner is encased in an NEMA-12 steel case.
The scanner’s construction enables the scanner to operate in harsh surroundings, especially
industrial environments. Water-resistant, shock-resistant, and rugged, the TECH 8 scanner is
also fast, aggressive and reliable. It can register bar codes at a range of 203mm - 457mm
(8" - 18") and can autodiscriminate among all common codes.
Among the scanner’s many features is an ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) in the
decoding system that virtually eliminates misreads and MECCA© (Metrologic Enhanced Code
Correcting Algorithm). MECCA© enables the scanner to read poorly printed, wrinkled or even
torn bar codes on the first pass.
The scanner has been configured at the time of manufacture based on information supplied at
the time of order.

Labels
The first label is found inside the window of the scanner noting that this device is a CDRH Class
IIa laser product and EN 60825-1 LASERKLASSE 1. The second label is located on back of the
scanner. This label contains information such as the model number, the date of manufacture
and the serial number. The following are samples of the labels that are found on the unit.

each scanner is a model number. The model number includes the scanner number, revision
label, and denoted version identifier. For example, if the model number is MS870-B1, the
scanner is an MS870, B is the revision level, and 1 is the version identifier.

Maintenance
Smudges or dirt that appears on the scanner window can interfere with proper scanning.
Therefore, the window will need occasional cleaning.
1. Spray glass cleaner onto lint free, non-abrasive cleaning cloth.
2. Gently wipe the scanner window.
Configuration of the Scanner to the Host System
The scanner has been configured at the time of manufacture based on information supplied at
the time of order. If ScanSet® is being used, refer to the ScanSet documentation for information
on how to configure your scanner.
3
Scanner Connections
In order for the scanner to maintain compliance with applicable standards, all circuits connected
to the scanner must meet the requirements for SELV (Safety Extra Low Voltage) according to
EN 60950.
To avoid potential problems, do not power up the scanner until the communication
cable is secured to the host.
1. Turn off the host system.
2. Find the 19-pin female end of the scanner link cable and the widest key located above
pins L and A. Align this key with the corresponding key on the scanner box’s Mil spec
connector. While pushing in on the connector, rotate the ring clockwise until it locks
into place with a click.
3. Connect the other end of the communication cable to the host device.
The following statement is applicable if the optional power adapter available through
Metrologic does not power the bar code scanner, and the scanner receives power from
a host device such as a computer system.
Caution: To maintain compliance with standards CSA C22.2 No. 950/UL 1950 and
norm EN 60950, the power source must meet applicable performance
requirements for a limited power source.
If the scanner will not receive power from a transformer, skip to Step 6.
4. If the scanner will receive power from an external power source, check the AC input
requirements of the transformer to make sure the voltage matches the AC outlet.
(A socket-outlet should be installed near the equipment and must be easily accessible.)
5. Plug the transformer into the AC outlet to supply power to the scanner.
6. Power up the host system.
7. Scan a few items to verify that data is being properly transmitted between the scanner
and the host device.
4
Attaching the Scanner to the Stand and Work Surface
The scanner can be positioned in a vertical orientation with the Metrologic stand (Part #45478).
To attach the unit to the stand and work surface purchase the following: four 6-32 x ½"
(maximum length) machine screws and two (2) #10 pan head or two (2) #8 countersunk wood
screws. (Refer to figure 1)
1. Lay the scanner face down on a clean cloth to prevent any scratches from occurring
on the output window. Position the scanner so the red and green LEDs are pointed
toward you.
2. Lay the stand on the scanner with the angled bracket pointing up and toward you.
3. Align the four clearance holes to the four holes in the scanner’s case. Fasten the
scanner to the stand by inserting the four 6-32 x ½" screws into the four holes in the
scanner’s case.
4. Drill two holes into the work surface that correspond with the holes in the
216mm - 96mm (8.5" x 3.80") base of the stand.
5. Use two pan head or countersunk wood screws to attach the scanner and stand to the
work surface.

Scanning Bar Codes
The depth of field for the scanner is 203mm to 457mm (8" to 18") from the scanner window.
The symbol must be passed through the scan area in order for the scanner to recognize the bar

Appendix D
Notices
Notice
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of
the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the
equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio
frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful
interference, in which case the user will be required to correct the interference at his own expense. Any
unauthorized changes or modifications to this equipment could void the users authority to operate this device.
This device complies with 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.
Notice
This Class A digital apparatus complies with Canadian ICES-003.
Remarque
Cet appareil numérique de la classe A est conforme à la norme NMB-003 du Canada.
Caution
Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than those specified herein may result in
hazardous laser light exposure. Under no circumstances should the customer attempt to service the laser scanner.
Never attempt to look at the laser beam, even if the scanner appears to be nonfunctional. Never open the scanner in
an attempt to look into the device. Doing so could result in hazardous laser light exposure. The use of optical
instruments with the laser equipment will increase eye hazard.
Atención
La modificación de los procedimientos, o la utilización de controles o ajustes distintos de los especificados aquí,
pueden provocar una luz de láser peligrosa. Bajo ninguna circunstancia el usuario deberá realizar el mantenimiento
del láser del escáner. Ni intentar mirar al haz del láser incluso cuando este no esté operativo. Tampoco deberá abrir
el escáner para examinar el aparato. El hacerlo puede conllevar una exposición peligrosa a la luz de láser. El uso de
instrumentos ópticos con el equipo láser puede incrementar el riesgo para la vista.
Attention
L'emploi de commandes, réglages ou procédés autres que ceux décrits ici peut entraîner de graves irradiations. Le
client ne doit en aucun cas essayer d'entretenir lui-même le scanner ou le laser. Ne regardez jamais directement le
rayon laser, même si vous croyez que le scanner est inactif. N'ouvrez jamais le scanner pour regarder dans
l'appareil. Ce faisant, vous vous exposez à une rayonnement laser qú êst hazardous. L'emploi d'appareils optiques
avec cet équipement laser augmente le risque d'endommagement de la vision.
Achtung
Die Verwendung anderer als der hier beschriebenen Steuerungen, Einstellungen oder Verfahren kann eine
gefährliche Laserstrahlung hervorrufen. Der Kunde sollte unter keinen Umständen versuchen, den Laser-Scanner
selbst zu warten. Sehen Sie niemals in den Laserstrahl, selbst wenn Sie glauben, daß der Scanner nicht aktiv ist.
Öffnen Sie niemals den Scanner, um in das Gerät hineinzusehen. Wenn Sie dies tun, können Sie sich einer
gefährlichen Laserstrahlung aussetzen. Der Einsatz optischer Geräte mit dieser Laserausrüstung erhöht das Risiko
einer Sehschädigung.
Attenzione
L’utilizzo di sistemi di controllo, di regolazioni o di procedimenti diversi da quelli descritti nel presente Manuale può
provocare delle esposizioni a raggi laser rischiose. Il cliente non deve assolutamente tentare di riparare egli stesso
lo scanner laser. Non guardate mai il raggio laser, anche se credete che lo scanner non sia attivo. Non aprite mai
lo scanner per guardare dentro l’apparecchio. Facendolo potete esporVi ad una esposizione laser rischiosa. L’uso
di apparecchi ottici, equipaggiati con raggi laser, aumenta il rischio di danni alla vista.
