Loading and Removing the Batteries Two types of battery are used in the Handheld Terminal. There are the main batteries used to operate the Handheld Terminal, and a backup battery used for memory protection. As the main batteries, use alkaline AA batteries or fully charged rechargeable AA batteries (eneloop). To use rechargeable batteries, you must change the setting. (See “Configuring the Main Battery Settings” below.) Use a lithium battery (CR2032) as the backup battery. If an icon or message appears on the screen indicating that the batteries are exhausted, replace them promptly. Important! • The main batteries are used for both operation and backup, while the backup battery provides power for memory backup only. Do not remove both batteries at the same time. Removing both batteries, or removing the backup battery (or main batteries) when the main (or backup) battery charge is low, could result in data loss or corruption. Lost data cannot be recovered, so backup copies should always be made of important data (such as by transferring data to a computer using the optional cradle). • Always turn the Handheld Terminal off before replacing batteries. • Always use 2 new alkaline AA batteries or 2 fully charged rechargeable AA batteries (eneloop) when replacing the main batteries. Using batteries other than those specified for this product, or using old and new batteries together, could significantly shorten the life of the batteries or cause malfunctions. • Always use a CR2032 battery when replacing the lithium battery. Configuring the Main Battery Settings You can choose either dry cell (alkaline) or rechargeable batteries as the main batteries. At shipment from the factory, the “DRY CELL” setting is selected. To use rechargeable (eneloop) batteries, you must change the setting. Select the setting as shown below. ■ Battery settings screen SYSTEM MENU→SETTINGS→BATTERY→BATTERY TYPE Also, when the Handheld Terminal detects that you have replaced the batteries (or removed the batteries temporarily), the battery settings screen is automatically displayed. You can change the setting to specify whether automatic battery settings screen display is enabled. Select the setting as shown below. ■ Battery settings screen automatic display SYSTEM MENU→SETTINGS→BATTERY→SETTING MODE E-17 Loading the Main Batteries 1.

As shown in the illustration, use a pointed implement such as a ballpoint pen to remove the battery. E-19 Handling microSD Cards The Handheld Terminal supports microSD card. Since the microSD card slot is located inside the battery compartment, first remove the batteries when installing or removing a microSD card. Refer to pages 17 to 18 for information on “Loading and Removing the Main Batteries”. Install (or remove) a microSD card according to the procedure described below. Installing 1. Make sure that the power on the terminal has been switched off. If the power is still on, press the power key to switch off. 2. Remove the batteries. 3. Open the microSD card cover. 4. Lay the card flat with the front (the side with the text) upwards so that it will slide into the slot at the rear and then push the card into the slot. • Push the card firmly into the slot until it locks into place. • Do not try to insert the card on an angle. 5. Close the microSD card cover and install the batteries. E-20 Removing 1. Make sure that the power on the terminal has been switched off. If the power is still on, press the power key to switch off. 2. Remove the batteries and open the microSD card cover. 3. Catch the projecting lip with your fingertip as shown in the illustration and pull the card out. 4. Close the microSD card cover and install the batteries. Important! • A microSD card must be inserted with the top and bottom properly aligned and in the proper direction. Attempt in inserting it with an excessive force in incorrect orientation can risk damage to the connectors and slot. • Never turn off the power or remove a microSD card from the slot while the card is being accessed. Doing so can damage the microSD card or data in the card. • Do not drop the card or lose it. E-21 Performing Communications IR Communication IR communication can be used to transmit data between two Handheld Terminals. When performing IR communication, orient the IR ports of both Handheld Terminals so they are pointing directly at each other. The ports can be in direct contact with each other, or they can be separated by up to 30cm (1113⁄16") (up to 20cm (7 7⁄8") for communication between units). Important! • A high-sensitivity communication element is used during IR communication. • In order to ensure successful communication, avoid using cellular phones or other devices that emit radio wave in the area where you are performing IR communication. • If you need to use such a device, move away from the communicating Handheld Terminals. In case of a cellular phone, keep it at least 30cm (1113⁄16") away. E-22 Bluetooth® Communication Bluetooth® interface can also be used to transmit data between two Handheld Terminals. With Bluetooth® the two Handheld Terminals should be located within about 5 meters from each other, as long as there is nothing blocking the path between them. Important! Observe the following precautions to help ensure that Bluetooth communication is successful. • Make sure there is at least two meters between the Handheld Terminal and other equipment (electrical appliances, audio-visual equipment, OA equipment, and digital cordless telephones, facsimile machines, etc.). (Take special care with microwave ovens. Allow at least three meters between the Handheld Terminals in wireless operation and a microwave oven.) When approaching such a device when its power is turned on, proper communication may prove impossible while this may also cause interference with TV and radio reception (images produced by certain UHF and broadcast satellite channels may become blurry). • Normal communication may not be possible in an area near a broadcast transmitter or wireless transmitter. If this happens, move the Handheld Terminal to a different location. Normal communication may not be possible in areas exposed to strong radio waves. • RF Wireless LAN Interference Because Bluetooth® and RF wireless LAN use the same frequency band (2.4GHz), radio interference can occur if there is a wireless LAN device nearby. This can result in lower communication speeds, or even make it impossible to establish a connection. If this happens, try the following countermeasures. • Move at least 10 meters away from the wireless LAN device. • If you cannot keep the distance at least 10 meters or more between the Handheld Terminal and a wireless LAN device, turn off the power of either the Handheld Terminal or the wireless LAN device. E-23 Resetting the Handheld Terminal Resetting the Handheld Terminal is the same as restarting a PC. Performing a reset causes all unsaved inputs and edits to be lost, but data that is already stored in the memory as well as all settings should be unaffected. Use reset to restore normal operation whenever the Handheld Terminal operates abnormally due to misoperation or some other reason. Use a stylus to press the reset switch on the front of the DT-970. This starts the reset operation. * Do not use a toothpick or pencil or other object whose tip may break off when pressing the reset switch. Otherwise there is a risk of damage. E-24 Warning Label The illustration shows the DT-970M51E. The label location differs depending on the model. • This label is a warning and caution label for Class 2 laser products that comply with IEC60825-1:2007. • Although Class 2 laser light is only emitted momentarily, never look directly into the beam light. • The laser light emitted by this laser scanner has a maximum output of less than 1 mW and a wavelength of 650 nm. • Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than those specified herein may result in hazardous radiation exposure.
