• Lithium-ion Battery Pack
Each lithium-ion battery pack has its life. The life span heavily depends on how the
battery pack is charged or stored which may cause deterioration of the battery pack
to shorten the life span if it is handled improperly. Note the tips below to make the
battery pack last long.
— Be sure to charge the battery pack before using it if the battery pack is used for the
first time or if it has not been used for a long period of time.
— If the battery pack is repeatedly charged, the life span becomes short. To avoid the
repetition of charging the battery pack, be sure that the remaining capacity is low
before you start charging.
— Be sure to charge the battery pack in recommended temperature range. The
temperature range is dependant on device you use to charge including battery
chargers and Handheld Terminals. Refer to the respective user guides. Charging
the battery pack in a temperature outside of the recommended range causes
deterioration.
— When used at low temperatures, the battery pack has a reduced capacity and will
supply power for shorter time.
The life span of the battery pack is also shortened.
— Charging the battery pack while the battery pack itself is freeze including inside
causes deterioration. Be sure to resume an ordinary room temperature on the
battery pack and then leave it unattended for approximately one hour before
charging.
— After charging the battery pack, if the performance of the battery pack does not
show any recovery, it is a sign of ending the life. Replace it with a new battery
pack.
— Avoid the battery pack with a full of the capacity to store for a long period of
time. If you need to store it for a long period, be sure that the remaining capacity
is 30 to 50 percent and to store in a moderate low temperature. This can reduce
deterioration.
— The battery pack gradually deteriorates over time. In particular, storing (or using)
the fully charged battery pack at high temperatures tends to accelerate battery pack
deterioration.

Loading and Removing the Battery Pack
Your Handheld Terminal uses two types of battery: a battery pack and a memory
backup battery.
The battery pack is used to power normal operations and to store data, while the
memory backup battery provides the power required to maintain memory contents
when the battery pack power is unable to supply power for some reason.
Use the battery pack (HA-K23XLBAT) as the main power source.
The backup battery is installed inside of the Handheld Terminal.
This guide uses the following terms to refer to the batteries.
Battery Pack:
Rechargeable battery pack (HA-K23XLBAT) for normal operations
and data storage
Backup Battery: Built-in battery for memory backup
When the battery pack power goes low, immediately charge it or replace it with a
charged battery pack.
You can use the USB Cradle, the Ethernet Cradle, the USB and Charging Unit, the
Dual Battery Charger or the Cradle-type Dual Battery Charger to charge a battery
pack installed in the terminal. See the relevant sections in this guide for the respective
options about how to use.
Important!
Always keep backup of all important data!
• The battery pack powers normal operation and also provides power required to
maintain memory contents, while the backup battery provides backup power to
maintain memory contents. Because of this, you should not remove the battery
pack if the backup battery is dead. Removing the battery pack while the backup
battery is dead causes data in the memory to be corrupted or lost. Note that
once data is lost it cannot be recovered. Always keep backup of all important
data.
• The charge of a battery pack when you purchase it may be depleted due to
testing at the factory or natural discharge during shipment and storage. Be sure
to charge the battery pack before you use it.
• The life of a battery pack is limited, and charging a battery pack causes it to
gradually lose its ability to maintain the charge. If your battery pack seems to
require charging very frequently, it probably means it is time to purchase a new one.
• If a battery pack is used past the end of its service life, it may swell up in size. In
such a case, replace the battery pack with a new one.
• If the backup battery is fully charged, it will maintain the contents of the
terminal’s memory (RAM) for approximately 10 minutes when the main battery
pack is removed.
• It takes 4 days with the main battery pack installed in the terminal for the
backup battery to be charged fully.

Handling the NFC Reader/Writer (DT-X8-11E/11C/21E/21C)
NFC is a type of RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology that allows the data
in a device to be read simply by holding the device up to an NFC reader.
It can be used to read RFID tags used for controlling goods as well as contactless IC
cards used in applications such as employee identification.
RFID Tags
1. Hold the Handheld Terminal up so that the reader port is parallel with the RFID tag.
Contactless IC Cards
1. Hold the contactless IC card up so that it is parallel with the Handheld Terminal's
reader port.
Otherwise, you can hold the Handheld Terminal up to the card.
E-32
Important!
Both contactless IC cards and RFID tags
• The NFC employs a low power radio wave which does not require regulatory
station license.
• Frequency band used by the NFC is 13.56 MHz. Secure a sufficient space
between DT-X8 and other reader/writer located in the vicinity. Make sure also
that a radio station employs the same frequency band does not locate near by
prior to using DT-X8.
• Read a contactless IC card or RFID tag by holding the Handheld Terminal so
that the reader port is flush against the card or tag.
• When holding up the Handheld Terminal, take care not to strike the reader port
against the card or tag.
• If the card or tag cannot be read, try moving the Handheld Terminal back and
forth or side to side.
Contactless IC cards
• Metal objects near a contactless IC card will interfere with successful reading.
Take the card out of a wallet if the wallet is with metal object before applying it
to the reader port.
• The card may not be read correctly if it is overlapped by one or more other
cards.
RFID tags
• Metal objects near an RFID tag will interfere with successful reading. Move the
tag away from any nearby metal objects or use a tag designed for use with metal.
• The tag may not be read correctly if it is overlapped by one or more other tags.
Set up the Handheld Terminal so that tags can be kept completely apart during
reading.
E-33
Handling microSD Cards
The Handheld Terminal supports microSD card.
Install (or remove) a microSD card according to the procedure described below.
Installing
1. Open the cover of the microSD card slot ( ) and insert a microSD card all the
way in until the top of the microSD card aligns with the entrance of the slot of the
Handheld Terminal ( ).
• Insert the card firmly all the way into the slot.
• Avoid inserting the card diagonally.
2. Close the cover of the microSD card slot.
E-34
Removing
1. Open the cover of the microSD card slot and press on the microSD card (
The microSD card is pushed out ( ).
).
2. Pull out the microSD card and close the cover of the microSD card slot.
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-35
Performing Bluetooth® Communication
Bluetooth® interface can also be used to transfer data between two Handheld Terminals.
With Bluetooth® the two Handheld Terminals should be located within about three meters
(9'103⁄8") 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 two Handheld Terminals face each other within three meters (9'103⁄8").
Surroundings (obstacles) between the Handheld Terminals may cause a shorter
distance.
• Make sure there is at least two meters (6'7") 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 (9'103⁄8) between the Handheld
Terminals in wireless operation and a microwave oven. When operating the
terminal in Bluetooth nearby these devices and electrical appliances with their
powers being turned on, communication may be interrupted or TV and radio
receptions may be interfered (images on the screen produced by certain channels
of UHF and broadcast satellite 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.
• Interference by WLAN
Because Bluetooth® and WLAN use the same frequency band (2.4GHz), radio
interference can occur if there is a WLAN device nearby. This can result in lower
communication speed, or even make it impossible to establish a connection. If
this happens, try the following countermeasures.
• Move at least 10 meters (32'103⁄4") away from the WLAN device.
• If you cannot keep the distance at least 10 meters (32'103⁄4") or more between the
Handheld Terminal and a WLAN device, turn off the power of either the Handheld
Terminal or the WLAN device.
®
• Although the Handheld Terminal enables WLAN and Bluetooth communication
to be used simultaneously as a result of being equipped with Bluetooth® Ver.2.0,
communication may not be possible depending on the surrounding radio wave
environment.
E-36
Resetting the Handheld Terminal
Resetting the terminal is the same as resetting a PC. Performing a reset causes all
unsaved RAM data to be lost that are in mid-course of inputting and editing, but data
and settings that are already stored in the FlashROM should be unaffected.
Perform a reset to restore normal operation whenever the Handheld Terminal operates
abnormally due to misoperation or some other reason.
Use the pen (stylus) to press the reset switch on the back of the terminal.
This starts the reset operation.
* Do not use a toothpick or pencil or other sharp
object whose tip may break off the reset switch.
Performing a Full Reset (Initialization)
Performing a full reset deletes all data and resets various settings to their defaults.
*Data stored in the Flashdisk folder remain unaffected.
Perform a full reset whenever any one of the following conditions exists.
• When you want to delete installed programs and settings, and resume the terminal to
the initial condition.
• When you are no longer able to use the Handheld Terminal because you forgot your
password.
• When the Handheld Terminal does not operate normally due to a memory problem.
Important!
• Performing a full reset resets all data to their defaults except stored in the
Flashdisk folder. If possible, backup data of the terminal to a PC or to the
Flashdisk folder. The reset procedure and display message appeared on
performing the reset is according to the model you operate.

• Allowing the power supply terminals become wet can cause an electric shock
or fire. In addition, if the terminals become soiled, contact may be impaired
resulting in poor charging. For reasons of safety and maintaining charging
battery pack(s) in optimum condition, clean the power supply terminals by
wiping with a dry cloth or cotton swab after disconnecting the AC adaptor.
• Never short out the power supply terminals of the USB Cradle. This can
damage the USB Cradle.
• Do not subject the Handheld Terminal and USB Cradle to vibration or impact
during communication. This can cause communication to be interrupted.
• When mounting the DT-X8, securely attach to the mount hooks of the USB
Cradle and make sure that the power LED at the front of the USB Cradle is lit in
green. Charging and communication will not proceed properly if the DT-X8 is not
mounted properly.
• Always cap ports that are not being used. Using the USB Cradle while the ports
are uncapped can cause damage.
• If the hand strap is attached to the terminal, take care not to trap it when
mounting the DT-X8. Pull the hand strap out as shown in the illustration. If
