Chapter 3 Data Capture
Introduction
The MC45 offers two types of data capture options:
• Laser scanning
• Color digital camera.
The MC45 contains the DataWedge application that allows user to enable the camera, decode the bar code data
and display the bar code content. To enable DataWedge, see DataWedge on page 3-4.
Laser Scanning
An MC45 with an integrated laser scanner has the following features:
• Reading of a variety of bar code symbologies, including the most popular 1-D code types.
• Intuitive aiming for easy point-and-shoot operation.
• Adaptive Scanning.
Scanning Considerations
Typically, scanning is a simple matter of aim, scan, and decode and a few quick trial efforts master it. However,
consider the following to optimize scanning performance:
• Range
Any scanning device decodes well over a particular working range — minimum and maximum distances from
the bar code. This range varies according to bar code density and scanning device optics.
Scanning within range brings quick and dependable decodes; scanning too close or too far away prevents
decodes. Move the scanner closer or further away to find the right working range for the bar codes being
scanned.
• Angle
Scanning angle is important for promoting quick decodes.
3 - 2 MC45 User Guide
• Hold the MC45 farther away for larger symbols.
• Move the MC45 closer for symbols with bars that are close together.
NOTE Scanning procedures depend on the application and MC45 configuration. An application may use different
scanning procedures from the one listed above.
Bar Code Scanning
CAUTION Do not aim the scan beam at your eyes and others.
1.
Ensure that a scan-enabled application is loaded on the MC45.
Figure 3-1
2.
Linear Scanning
Press and hold the scan button. The laser beam exits from the end of the MC45. Ensure the red scan beam
covers the entire bar code. The Scan/Decode LED lights red to indicate that scanning is in process, then lights
green and a beep sounds, by default, to indicate the bar code was decoded successfully.
Correct
Figure 3-2
3.
Incorrect
Linear Scanner Aiming Pattern
Release the scan button.
Adaptive Scanning
The MC45 contains the adaptive scanning feature that automatically adjusts the scan beam width for rapid and
easy scanning of bar codes from near contact to more than 200 inches away.
By default the MC45 is set to wide scan beam width. When the user presses the scan button, the MC45 determines
the distance from the bar code. For close bar codes the MC45 sets a wide beam width and for far bar codes it sets
a narrow beam width. The MC45 uses distance, bar code type and material to determine the correct scan beam
width.

service provider may also provide other services such as voice mail, call forwarding, and caller ID.
Also use the integrated phone to connect to an ISP or work network in order to browse the Web and read e-mail.
Connect to the Internet or work network over High-Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) using Cellular Line, or
using the modem specified by the mobile operator. For more information, or to customize the MC45 phone by
changing phone settings, see the MC45 Integrator Guide.

Smart Dialing
Smart Dialing makes it easy to dial a phone number. When you start entering numbers or characters, Smart Dialing
automatically searches and sorts the contact entries on the SIM card, in Contacts, and the phone numbers in Call
History (including incoming, outgoing, and missed calls). You can then select the desired number or contact from
the filtered list to dial.
Open the Phone screen, then tap the keys on the Phone keypad that correspond to the phone number or contact to
call. The contact panel lists contacts that match the sequence that you entered.
Smart Dialing starts looking for numbers or contacts that match the sequence entered.
To find a phone number:
• Enter the first one or two digits to find a phone number in Call History.
Using the Phone 4 - 9
• Enter the first three digits or more to find a phone number from the saved Contacts and SIM card.
To find a contact name:
• Enter the first letter of a contact’s first name or last name. Smart Dialing searches for the letter starting
from the first character of a contact name as well as from the character that appears after a space, dash,
or underscore in a contact name. For example, if you tap number “2” which is associated with [a, b, c] on
the Phone keypad, contact names such as the following will be considered matches: “Smith, Bernard”,
“Adams, John”, “Carlson, Eileen”, “Dillon, Albert”, “Childs, Larry”, “Cooper, Robert” and “Parks, Celine”.
• If the matching list is long narrow down the search further by entering another letter. Using the same
example above, tap “3” which is associated with (d, e, f), the matching list is narrowed down to the
following names: “Smith, Bernard”, “Adams, John”, and “Parks, Celine”.

CHAPTER 5 USING WLAN
Introduction
NOTE The WLAN feature is only applicable for the MC4597.
The WLAN feature supports the 802.11 a/b/g networking mode.
WLANs allow the MC45 to communicate wirelessly inside a building. Before using the MC45 on a WLAN, the
facility must be set up with the required hardware to run the WLAN (sometimes known as infrastructure). The
infrastructure and the MC45 must both be properly configured to enable this communication.
Refer to the documentation provided with the infrastructure (access points (APs), access ports, switches,
Radius servers, etc.) for instructions on how to set up the infrastructure.
Once you have set up the infrastructure to enforce your chosen WLAN security scheme, use the Fusion or
Wireless Zero Config (WZC) software to configure the MC45 to match.
Fusion Overview
The Fusion software contains applications with which to create wireless profiles. Each profile specifies the
security parameters to use for connecting to a particular WLAN as identified by its ESSID. The Fusion software
also allows the user to control which profile out of a set of profiles is used to connect. Other Fusion applications
allow the user to monitor the status of the current WLAN connection and to invoke diagnostic tools for
troubleshooting.

Chapter 6 Using GPS Navigation
Introduction
The MC45 includes Global Positioning System (GPS) technology using the QC Modem Solution chipset. GPS
technology is based on a worldwide system of GPS satellites orbiting the earth that continuously transmit digital
radio signals. These radio signals contain data on the satellites’ locations and their exact clock time and are used
to determine your location on the earth.
WARNING! When using the MC45 in a vehicle, it is the user’s responsibility to place, secure and use in a
manner that will not cause accidents, personal injury or property damage or obstruct their view. It
is the responsibility of the driver to operate the vehicle in a safe manner, maintain observation of
all driving conditions at all times, and not become distracted by the device to the exclusion of safe
driving practices. It is unsafe to operate the controls of the device while driving.
Software Installation
Third-party GPS navigation software is required. Evaluation software is available from various suppliers. For
example; VisualGPS, visit: http://www.visualgps.net/VisualGPSce/
If interested in purchasing GPS navigation software check with the GPS software vendor (before purchasing,
downloading, or installing any software) to determine that the application is compatible with the MC45. Refer to the
application’s user guide for application installation and setup information.
MC45 GPS Setup
By default, the MC45 has the following settings:
1. Tap Start > Settings > System > External GPS icon.
2. In the Programs tab, the GPS program port is set to COM6.
3. In the Hardware tab, the GPS hardware port is set to None.
Multiple programs can simultaneously access GPS data. Each program must use Microsoft GPS API or COM8 to
access the GPS data.
6 - 2 MC45 User Guide
Operation
Acquiring satellite signals may take several seconds to a few minutes. It is best to be outside and have a clear,
unobstructed view of the sky. Without a clear view, acquisition takes much longer and could result in the MC45
being unable to compute the initial position quickly. When operating the device indoors access to the GPS signals
may be limited or unavailable.
NOTE When using a GPS navigation application, ensure that the MC45 does not go into suspend mode. If the MC45
suspends then the power to the GPS radio is removed. Upon resume the GPS receiver must reacquire a valid GPS
signal, resulting in a a delay of positional information.
GPS Maps on microSD Cards
GPS navigation software vendors may sell maps on microSD cards. If using a microSD card with the GPS
navigation software:
1.
Slide the mini-SIM card holder to the right to unlock.
2.
Lift the mini-SIM card holder.
3.
Slide the microSD card holder down to unlock.
4.
Lift up the microSD card holder.
5.
Insert the card with the card contacts facing down and lower the microSD card holder.
6.
Slide the microSD card holder up to lock.
7.
Lower the mini-SIM card holder.
8.
Slide the mini-SIM card holder to the left to lock.
Answering a Phone Call While Using GPS
If you receive a phone call while using your GPS navigation software:
1.
Answer the phone call by pressing the Answer button.
2.
Once you end the phone call, press the End Call button to resume the audio on the GPS software.
NOTE Anytime you are using GPS on the MC45 and you receive a phone call, the audio on the GPS navigation software
is muted until you finish the call.
Losing the GPS Signal While in a Vehicle
GPS performance on the MC45 may be affected if the vehicle has thermal glass windows and windshields, which
can block the MC45 from receiving a GPS signal from satellites. To improve GPS signal strength, place the MC45
where there is a clear view of the sky. A direct line of sight is required between the MC45 and the GPS satellites to
access information from the satellites.
Using GPS Navigation 6 - 3
Assisted GPS
GPS can be used in stand-alone or Assisted GPS (A-GPS) modes. A Stand-alone GPS receiver downloads data
from GPS satellites. It can take several minutes to get a fix. By using GPS Location servers, A-GPS dramatically
improves the performance of the Time To First Fix (TTFF) of GPS receivers by providing them with data that they
would ordinarily have to download from the GPS satellites and other aiding data that helps the acquisition. With the
A-GPS data, GPS receivers can operate faster and more reliably.
The GPS Assist application provides the ability to modify the settings associated with obtaining GPS data.
Tap Start > Connections > GPS Assist icon.
Figure 6-1
GPS Assistance Window
To set the source of the data tap Source and select one of the options: Any (default), None.

6 - 4 MC45 User Guide
Chapter 7 Using Bluetooth
Introduction
Bluetooth-equipped devices can communicate without wires, using frequency-hopping spread spectrum (FHSS)
radio frequency (RF) to transmit and receive data in the 2.4 GHz Industry Scientific and Medical (ISM) band
(802.15.4). Bluetooth wireless technology is specifically designed for short-range (30 feet/10 meters)
communication and low power consumption.
MC45 with Bluetooth capabilities can exchange information (e.g., files, appointments, and tasks) with other
Bluetooth enabled devices such as phones, printers, access points, and other mobile computers. To use the MC45
as a modem, create a dial-up modem connection between a computer and MC45.
The MC45 with Bluetooth technology uses the Microsoft Bluetooth stack. To write an application that uses the
Microsoft Bluetooth stack APIs, refer to the Enterprise Mobility Developer Kit (EMDK) Help.
Adaptive Frequency Hopping
Adaptive Frequency Hopping (AFH) is a method of avoiding fixed frequency interferers, and can be used with
Bluetooth voice. All devices in the piconet (Bluetooth network) must be AFH-capable in order for AFH to work.
There is no AFH when connecting and discovering devices. Avoid making Bluetooth connections and discoveries
during critical 802.11b communications. AFH for Bluetooth consists of four main sections:
• Channel Classification - A method of detecting an interference on a channel-by-channel basis, or pre-defined
channel mask.
• Link Management - Coordinates and distributes the AFH information to the rest of the Bluetooth network.
• Hop Sequence Modification - Avoids interference by selectively reducing the number of hopping channels.
• Channel Maintenance - A method for periodically re-evaluating the channels.
When AFH is enabled, the Bluetooth radio “hops around” (instead of through) the 802.11b high-rate channels. AFH
coexistence allows Motorola mobile computers to operate in any infrastructure.
7 - 2 MC45 User Guide
The Bluetooth radio in this MC45 operates as a Class 2 device power class. The maximum output power is 2.5mW
and the expected range is 32.8 feet (10 meters). A definition of ranges based on power class is difficult to obtain
due to power and device differences, and whether one measures open space or closed office space.
NOTE It is not recommended to perform Bluetooth wireless technology inquiry when high rate 802.11b operation is
required.
Security
The current Bluetooth specification defines security at the link level. Application-level security is not specified. This
allows application developers to define security mechanisms tailored to their specific need. Link-level security
occurs between devices, not users, while application-level security can be implemented on a per-user basis. The
Bluetooth specification defines security algorithms and procedures needed to authenticate devices, and if needed,
encrypt the data flowing on the link between the devices. Device authentication is a mandatory feature of Bluetooth
while link encryption is optional.
Pairing of Bluetooth devices is accomplished by creating an initialization key that is used to authenticate the
devices and create a link key for them. Entering a common PIN number in the devices being paired generates the
initialization key. The PIN number is never sent over the air. By default, the Bluetooth stack responds with no key
when a key is requested (it is up to user to respond to the key request event). Authentication of Bluetooth devices
is based-upon a challenge-response transaction. Bluetooth allows for a PIN number or passkey that is used to
create other 128-bit keys used for security and encryption. The encryption key is derived from the link key used to
authenticate the pairing devices. Also worthy of note is the limited range and fast frequency hopping of the
Bluetooth radios that makes long-distance eavesdropping difficult.
Recommendations are:
• Perform pairing in a secure environment
• Keep PIN codes private and don't store the PIN codes in the mobile computer
• Implement application-level security.
The Microsoft stack supports Smart-pairing. For detailed information, refer to the Microsoft MSDN.

Bluetooth Power States
Suspend
When there is an active Bluetooth connection, the Bluetooth radio goes into low power mode maintaining the active
connection. When there is no active connection, the Bluetooth radio turns off.
NOTE If there is an active Bluetooth connection between the MC45 and another Bluetooth device and there is no
data activity, the MC45 will timeout. However, if the user presses the Power button on the MC45, the MC45
will suspend (except when on a call) and upon receiving data from a remote Bluetooth device, the MC45 will
wake from suspend mode. For example, headset redial or Bluetooth scanner sending data to the MC45.
Resume
When the MC45 resumes, Bluetooth turns on if it was on prior to suspend.
7 - 4 MC45 User Guide

ActiveSync
To communicate with various host devices, install Microsoft ActiveSync (version 4.5 or higher) on the host
computer. Use ActiveSync to synchronize information on the MC45 with information on the host computer.
Changes made on the MC45 or host computer appear in both places after synchronization.
NOTE When the MC45 is connected to a host computer and an ActiveSync connection is made, the WLAN radio is
disabled. This is a Microsoft security feature to prevent connection to two networks at the same time.
ActiveSync software:
• Allows working with mobile computer-compatible host applications on the host computer. ActiveSync
replicates data from the mobile computer so the host application can view, enter, and modify data on the
mobile computer.
• Synchronizes files between the mobile computer and host computer, converting the files to the correct
format.
• Backs up the data stored on the mobile computer. Synchronization is a one-step procedure that ensures the
data is always safe and up-to-date.
• Copies (rather than synchronizes) files between the mobile computer and host computer.
• Controls when synchronization occurs by selecting a synchronization mode, e.g., set to synchronize
continually while the mobile computer is connected to the host computer, or set to only synchronize on
command.
• Selects the types of information to synchronize and control how much data is synchronized.
Installing ActiveSync
To install ActiveSync on the host computer, download version 4.5 or higher from the Microsoft web site at
http://www.microsoft.com. Refer to the installation procedures included with the ActiveSync software.
MC45 Setup
NOTE Microsoft recommends installing ActiveSync on the host computer before connecting the MC45.
The MC45 can be set up to communicate with a USB connection. The MC45 communication settings must be set
to match the communication settings used with ActiveSync.
1.
On the MC45 tap Start > ActiveSync.
2.
Tap Menu > Connections.
3.
Select the connection type from the drop-down list.
4.
Tap OK to exit the Connections window
5.
Tap OK to exit the ActiveSync window.
6.
Proceed with setting up a partnership with a host computer with ActiveSync installed.
8 - 14 MC45 User Guide
Setting Up an ActiveSync Connection on the Host Computer
To start ActiveSync:

3.
Select Allow USB connections check box.
4.
Select the Show status icon in Taskbar check box.
5.
Select OK to save any changes made.
Synchronization with the MC45
NOTE When the MC45 is connected to a host computer and an ActiveSync connection is made, the WLAN radio
(if applicable) is disabled. This is a Microsoft security feature to prevent connection to two networks at the
same time.
To synchronize with the MC45:
1.
If the Get Connected window does not appear on the host computer, select Start > Active Sync and then
click Next.
2.
Select the check box to synchronize with a server running Microsoft Exchange if applicable and then click
Next.
3.
Select the appropriate settings and click Next and then click Finish.
During the first synchronization, information stored on the MC45 is copied to the host computer. When the copy is
complete and all data is synchronized, the MC45 can be disconnected from the host computer.
NOTE The first ActiveSync operation must be performed with a local, direct connection. Windows Mobile retains
partnerships information after a cold boot.
For more information about using ActiveSync, start ActiveSync on the host computer, then see ActiveSync Help.

Byte. On an addressable boundary, eight adjacent binary digits (0 and 1) combined in a pattern to represent a specific
character or numeric value. Bits are numbered from the right, 0 through 7, with bit 0 the low-order bit. One byte in
memory is used to store one ASCII character.
C
Codabar. A discrete self-checking code with a character set consisting of digits 0 to 0 and six additional characters (“-”, ”$”,
”:”, ”/”, ”,” and “+”).
Code 128. A high density symbology which allows the controller to encode all 128 ASCII characters without adding extra
symbol elements.
Code 3 of 9 (Code 39). A versatile and widely used alphanumeric bar code symbology with a set of 43 character
types,including all uppercase letters, numerals from 0 to 9 and 7 special characters (“-”, “.”, “/”, “+”, “%”, “$” and space).
The code name is derived from the fact that 3 of 9 elements representing a character are wide, while the remaining 6
are narrow.
Code 93. An industrial symbology compatible with Code 39 but offering a full character ASCII set and a higher coding
density than Code 39.
COM port. Communication port; ports are identified by number, e.g., COM1, COM2.
Cradle. A cradle is used for charging the terminal battery and for communicating with a host computer, and provides a
storage place for the terminal when not in use.
D
Decode. To recognize a bar code symbology (e.g., UPC/EAN) and then analyze the content of the specific bar code
scanned.
Discrete 2 of 5. A binary bar caode symbology representing each character by a group of five bars, two of which are wide.
The location of wide bars in the group determines which character is encoded; spaces are insignificant. Only numberic
characters (0 to 9) and START/STOP characters may be encoded.
E

TCP/IP.
FTP. See File Transfer Protocol.
G
GPS (Global Positioning System). A satellite-based navigation system made up of a network of 24 satellites. GPS
satellites circle the earth and transmit signal information to earth. GPS receivers take this information and use
triangulation to calculate the user's exact location.
H
Hz. Hertz; A unit of frequency equal to one cycle per second.
Host Computer. A computer that serves other terminals in a network, providing such services as computation, database
access, supervisory programs and network control.
High-Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA). A 3G (third generation) mobile telephony communications protocol in the
High-Speed Packet Access (HSPA) family, which allows networks based on Universal Mobile Telecommunications
System (UMTS) to have higher data transfer speeds and capacity.
I
Interleaved 2 of 5. A binary bar code symbology representing character pairs in groups of five bars and five interleaved
spaces. Interleaving provides for greater information density. The location of wide elements (bar/spaces) within each
group determines which characters are encoded. This continuous code type uses no intercharacter spaces. Only
numeric (0 to 9) and START/STOP characters may be encoded.
Internet Protocol Address. See IP.
IP. Internet Protocol. The IP part of the TCP/IP communications protocol. IP implements the network layer (layer 3) of the
protocol, which contains a network address and is used to route a message to a different network or subnetwork. IP
accepts “packets” from the layer 4 transport protocol (TCP or UDP), adds its own header to it and delivers a “datagram”
to the layer 2 data link protocol. It may also break the packet into fragments to support the maximum transmission unit
(MTU) of the network.
IP Address. (Internet Protocol address) The address of a computer attached to an IP network. Every client and server
station must have a unique IP address. A 32-bit address used by a computer on a IP network. Client workstations have
either a permanent address or one that is dynamically assigned to them each session. IP addresses are written as four
sets of numbers separated by periods; for example, 204.171.64.2.

L
LASER. Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation.The laser is an intense light source. Light from a laser is
all the same frequency, unlike the output of an incandescent bulb. Laser light is typically coherent and has a high energy
density.
laser scanner. A type of bar code reader that uses a beam of laser light.
LCD. See Liquid Crystal Display.
LED Indicator. A semiconductor diode (LED - Light Emitting Diode) used as an indicator, often in digital displays. The
semiconductor uses applied voltage to produce light of a certain frequency determined by the semiconductor's particular
chemical composition.
Light Emitting Diode. See LED.
Liquid Crystal Display (LCD). A display that uses liquid crystal sealed between two glass plates. The crystals are excited
by precise electrical charges, causing them to reflect light outside according to their bias. They use little electricity and
react relatively quickly. They require external light to reflect their information to the user.
M
MC. Mobile Computer.
MDN. Mobile Directory Number. The directory listing telephone number that is dialed (generally using POTS) to reach a
mobile unit. The MDN is usually associated with a MIN in a cellular telephone -- in the US and Canada, the MDN and
MIN are the same value for voice cellular users. International roaming considerations often result in the MDN being
different from the MIN.
Mobile Computer. In this text, mobile computer refers to the MC45. It can be set up to run as a stand-alone device, or it can
be set up to communicate with a network, using wireless radio technology.
N
Nominal. The exact (or ideal) intended value for a specified parameter. Tolerances are specified as positive and negative
deviations from this value.
Nominal Size. Standard size for a bar code symbol. Most UPC/EAN codes are used over a range of magnifications (e.g.,
from 0.80 to 2.00 of nominal).
NVM. Non-Volatile Memory.
Glossary - 5
P
PAN . Personal area network. Using Bluetooth wireless technology, PANs enable devices to communicate wirelessly.
Generally, a wireless PAN consists of a dynamic group of less than 255 devices that communicate within about a 33-foot
range. Only devices within this limited area typically participate in the network.
Parameter. A variable that can have different values assigned to it.
PING. (Packet Internet Groper) An Internet utility used to determine whether a particular IP address is online. It is used to
test and debug a network by sending out a packet and waiting for a response.
R
RAM. Random Access Memory. Data in RAM can be accessed in random order, and quickly written and read.
Reset. Restarts the mobile computer by closing all running programs. All data that is not saved to flash memory is lost.
Resolution. The narrowest element dimension which is distinguished by a particular reading device or printed with a
particular device or method.
RF. Radio Frequency.
ROM. Read-Only Memory. Data stored in ROM cannot be changed or removed.
Router. A device that connects networks and supports the required protocols for packet filtering. Routers are typically used
to extend the range of cabling and to organize the topology of a network into subnets. See Subnet.
S
Scanner. An electronic device used to scan bar code symbols and produce a digitized pattern that corresponds to the bars
and spaces of the symbol. Its three main components are: 1) Light source (laser or photoelectric cell) - illuminates a bar
code,; 2) Photodetector - registers the difference in reflected light (more light reflected from spaces); 3) Signal
conditioning circuit - transforms optical detector output into a digitized bar pattern.
Shared Key. Shared Key authentication is an algorithm where both the AP and the MU share an authentication key.
Subnet. A subset of nodes on a network that are serviced by the same router. See Router.
Subnet Mask. A 32-bit number used to separate the network and host sections of an IP address. A custom subnet mask
subdivides an IP network into smaller subsections. The mask is a binary pattern that is matched up with the IP address
to turn part of the host ID address field into a field for subnets. Default is often 255.255.255.0.
Symbology. The structural rules and conventions for representing data within a particular bar code type (e.g. UPC/EAN,
Code 39, PDF417, etc.).

T
TCP/IP. (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) A communications protocol used to internetwork dissimilar
systems. This standard is the protocol of the Internet and has become the global standard for communications. TCP
provides transport functions, which ensures that the total amount of bytes sent is received correctly at the other end.
UDP is an alternate transport that does not guarantee delivery. It is widely used for real-time voice and video
transmissions where erroneous packets are not retransmitted. IP provides the routing mechanism. TCP/IP is a routable
protocol, which means that all messages contain not only the address of the destination station, but the address of a
destination network. This allows TCP/IP messages to be sent to multiple networks within an organization or around the
world, hence its use in the worldwide Internet. Every client and server in a TCP/IP network requires an IP address, which
is either permanently assigned or dynamically assigned at startup.
Terminal. See Mobile Computer.
Tolerance. Allowable deviation from the nominal bar or space width.
Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol. See TCP/IP.
U
UDP. User Datagram Protocol. A protocol within the IP protocol suite that is used in place of TCP when a reliable delivery
is not required. For example, UDP is used for real-time audio and video traffic where lost packets are simply ignored,
because there is no time to retransmit. If UDP is used and a reliable delivery is required, packet sequence checking and
error notification must be written into the applications.
UPC. Universal Product Code. A relatively complex numeric symbology. Each character consists of two bars and two
spaces, each of which is any of four widths. The standard symbology for retail food packages in the United States.
