Battery Charging
CAUTION
Ensure that you follow the guidelines for battery safety described in Battery Safety Guidelines on page 5-1.
Use the mobile computer cradles, cables and spare battery chargers to charge the mobile computer main battery.
The main battery can be charged before insertion into the mobile computer or after it is installed. There are two
main batteries for the MC3000, the Standard Battery and the Extended Life Battery. Either battery can be used, but
the Extended Life Battery requires a different Strap/Door Assembly. Use one of the spare battery chargers to
charge the main battery (out of the mobile computer) or one of the cradles to charge the main battery while it is
installed in the mobile computer.
Before using the mobile computer for the first time, fully charge the main battery until the amber Charge LED
Indicator remains lit (see Table 1-2 on page 1-8 for charge status indications). The Standard Battery fully charges in
less than four hours and the Extended Life Battery fully charges in less than six hours.
The mobile computer is equipped with a memory backup battery which automatically charges from the main
battery whether or not the mobile computer is operating or is in suspend mode. The memory backup battery retains
data in memory for at least 30 minutes when the mobile computer’s main battery is removed or fully discharged.
When the mobile computer is used for the first time or after the memory backup battery has fully discharged, the
memory backup battery requires approximately 15 hours to fully charge. Do not remove the main battery from the
mobile computer for 15 hours to ensure that the memory backup battery fully charges. If the main battery is
1-8
MC3000 User Guide
removed from the mobile computer or the main battery is fully discharged, the memory backup battery completely
discharges in several hours.
When the main battery reaches a very low battery state, the combination of main battery and backup battery
retains data in memory for at least 72 hours.
NOTE
Do not remove the main battery within the first 15 hours of use. If the main battery is removed before the
backup battery is fully charged, data may be lost.
Batteries must be charged within the 32° to 104° F (0° to +40° C) ambient temperature range.

Scanning Considerations
Scanning consists of; aim, scan and decode. Scanning performance can be optimized by considering the range
and the scanning angle:
• 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 constant decodes; scanning too close or too far away prevents
decodes. Move the scanner closer and further away to find the right working range for the bar codes being
scanned. However, the situation is complicated by the availability of various integrated scanning modules.
The best way to specify the appropriate working range per bar code density is through a chart called a
decode zone for each scan module. A decode zone simply plots working range as a function of minimum
element widths of bar code symbols.
• Angle
The scan angle is important for optimizing decode performance. When laser beams reflect directly back into
the scanner from the bar code, this specular reflection can “blind” the scanner.
To avoid this, scan the bar code so that the beam does not bounce directly back. But do not scan at too sharp
an angle; the scanner needs to collect scattered reflections from the scan to make a successful decode.
Practice quickly shows what tolerances to work within.
NOTE
Contact the Motorola Enterprise Mobility Support Center if chronic scanning difficulties develop. Decoding of
properly printed bar codes should be quick and effortless.
Laser Decode Ranges
The decode ranges provide the decode ranges for barcodes of specified densities. Figure 2-28 shows the laser
decode ranges and Table 2-10 on page 2-28 lists the scan ranges for the selected bar code densities. The
minimum element width (or “symbol density”) is the width in mils of the narrowest element (bar or space) in the
symbol. The maximum usable length of a symbol at any given range is shown below.

Imaging
The imager version of the mobile computer has the following features:
• Omnidirectional reading of a variety of bar code symbologies, including the most popular linear, postal,
PDF417 and 2-D matrix code types.
• The ability to capture and download images to a host for a variety of imaging applications.
• Advanced intuitive laser aiming for easy point-and-shoot operation.
Imager
The imager uses digital camera technology to take a digital picture of a bar code, the image is stored in memory
and software decoding algorithms are executed to extract the data from the image. A typical bar code decoding
process is as follows:
1.
Aim the mobile computer at a bar code and press the scan button or trigger.
2.
The red laser aiming pattern turns on to assist in aiming the mobile computer.
3.
The mobile computer turns on the secondary white LEDs to illuminate the target bar code.
4.
The mobile computer takes a digital picture (image) of the bar code and stores it in memory for decoding. A
beep sounds to indicate that the bar code was properly decoded.
5.
Release the scan button.
This process usually occurs instantaneously. Steps 2 - 4 are repeated on poor or difficult bar codes as long as the
scan button remains active.
Operational Modes
Mobile computers with an integrated imager have three modes of operation: Decode Mode, Pick List Mode and
Image Capture Mode. All modes are activated by pulling the trigger or pressing the Scan button.
Decode Mode
This mode allows the user to decode a bar code when a single bar code in the mobile computer’s field of view. In
this mode the Imager attempts to locate and decode enabled bar codes within its field of view. The Imager remains
in this mode as long as the trigger is pulled, or until a bar code is decoded.
2 - 30 MC3000 User Guide
Pick List Mode
Pick List mode allows the user to selectively decode a bar code when more than one bar code is in the mobile
computer’s field of view. By moving the aiming crosshair over the wanted bar code the user can selectively read
only the required bar code. This feature is particularly valued for pick lists containing multiple bar codes and
manufacturing or transport labels containing more than one bar code type (either 1D or 2D).
Aiming the Mobile Computer
The imager version of the mobile computer projects a laser aiming pattern (shown below) similar to those used on
cameras. The aiming pattern is used to position the bar code or object within the field of view.
Figure 2-29 Laser Aiming Pattern
To scan a symbol using the imager:
1.
Center the symbol in any orientation within the aiming pattern. Ensure the entire symbol is within the
rectangular area formed by the brackets in the aiming pattern.

The aiming pattern is smaller when the Imager is closer to the symbol and larger when it is farther from the
symbol. Scan symbols with smaller bars or elements (mil size) closer to the unit and those with larger bars or
elements (mil size) farther from the unit.
3.
Hold the mobile computer between two and nine inches (depending on symbol density) from the symbol,
centering the aiming pattern cross hairs on the symbol.
4.
Press the scan button. The Scan LED Indicators illuminate red to indicate that the laser is on. The Scan LED
Indicators illuminate green and a beep sounds to indicate a successful decode.
Imager Decode Ranges
The decode ranges provide the decode distances for barcodes of specified densities. Figure 2-33 shows the
imager decode ranges and Table 2-11 on page 2-32 lists the scan ranges for the selected bar code densities. The
minimum element width (or “symbol density”) is the width in mils of the narrowest element (bar or space) in the
symbol. The maximum usable length of a symbol at any given range is shown below.

Direct Part Marking
Direct Part Marking (DPM) is where an item is physically altered by methods such as dot peening, laser and
electro-chemical etching to produce two different surface conditions. These marking result in the symbol being
created by either smooth and rough (or dull and shiny) areas on the substrate or a symbol comprised “dots” below
or above the substrate surface. DPM is typically used with matrix symbologies. As a result, there is often very little
or no contrast between the “marked” elements of a symbol and the background.

Chapter 3 Using Bluetooth
Introduction
Bluetooth-equipped devices can communicate without wires, using frequency-hopping spread spectrum (FHSS)
RF to transmit and receive data in the 2.4 GHz Industry Scientific and Medical (ISM) band (802.15.1). Bluetooth
wireless technology is specifically designed for short-range (30 feet/10 meters) communications and low power
consumption.
Mobile computers 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. In addition,
a dial-up modem connection can be created between the Bluetooth mobile computer and a Bluetooth enabled
phone. The Bluetooth phone can then be used as a modem.
Motorola mobile computers with Bluetooth technology use the StoneStreet One Bluetooth stack. To program
Bluetooth within the mobile computer refer to the StoneStreet One SDK.
Adaptive Frequency Hopping
Adaptive Frequency Hopping (AFH) is a method of avoiding fixed frequency interferers. AFH 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 can be broken-down into 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 the 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. AFH is always enabled in the
MC3000.
The Bluetooth radio in this mobile computer operates as a Class 2 device power class. The maximum output power
is 2.5mW and the expected range is up to 32.8 feet (10 meters). A definitive definition of ranges based on power
3-2
MC3000 User Guide
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 is
really 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.
It is recommended:
• 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.
Turning the Bluetooth Radio Mode On and Off
Turn off the Bluetooth radio to save power or if entering an area with radio restrictions (e.g., an airplane). When the
radio is off, the mobile computer can not be seen or connected to by other Bluetooth devices. Turn on the Bluetooth
radio to exchange information with other Bluetooth devices (within range). Communicate only with Bluetooth radios
in close proximity.
NOTE
To achieve the best battery life in mobile computers with multiple radios, turn off the radios that are not being
used.

manages communications between the host computer system and one or more wireless terminals. An AP connects to
a wired Ethernet LAN and acts as a bridge between the Ethernet wired network and IEEE 802.11 interoperable
radio-equipped mobile units, such as a mobile computer. The AP allows a mobile user to roam freely through a facility
while maintaining a seamless connection to the wired network.
AirBEAM® Manager. AirBEAM® Manager is a comprehensive wireless network management system that provides
essential functions that are required to configure, monitor, upgrade and troubleshoot the wireless network and its
components (including networked mobile computers). Some features include event notification, access point
configuration, diagnostics, statistical reports, auto-discovery, wireless proxy agents and monitoring of access points and
mobile units.
AirBEAM® Smart Client. AirBEAM® Smart Client is part of Motorola’s AirBEAM® suite, which also includes AirBEAM®
Safe and AirBEAM® Manager. The AirBEAM® Smart Client system uses the network accessible host server to store
software files that are to be downloaded to the mobile computers. The AirBEAM® Smart Client provides the mobile
computers with the “smarts” to request software from the host. It allows them to request, download and install software,
as well as to upload files and status data. The AirBEAM® Smart Client uses the industry standard FTP or TFTP file
transfer protocols to check the host system for updates, and if necessary, to transfer updated software. Most often,
AirBEAM® Smart Client is used with wireless networks, but any TCP/IP connection can be used. For more information,
refer to the AirBEAM® Smart Windows® CE Client Product Reference Guide (p/n 72-63060-xx).

Glossary - 2
MC3000 User Guide
B
Bar. The dark element in a printed bar code symbol.
Bar Code. A pattern of variable-width bars and spaces which represents numeric or alphanumeric data in machine-readable
form. The general format of a bar code symbol consists of a leading margin, start character, data or message character,
check character (if any), stop character, and trailing margin. Within this framework, each recognizable symbology uses
its own unique format. See Symbology.
Bar Code Density. The number of characters represented per unit of measurement (e.g., characters per inch).
Bar Height. The dimension of a bar measured perpendicular to the bar width.
Bar Width. Thickness of a bar measured from the edge closest to the symbol start character to the trailing edge of the same
bar.
Bit. Binary digit. One bit is the basic unit of binary information. Generally, eight consecutive bits compose one byte of data.
The pattern of 0 and 1 values within the byte determines its meaning.
Bits per Second (bps). Bits transmitted or received.
Bit. Binary digit. One bit is the basic unit of binary information. Generally, eight consecutive bits compose one byte of data.
The pattern of 0 and 1 values within the byte determines its meaning.
bps. See Bits Per Second.
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.
boot or boot-up. The process a computer goes through when it starts. During boot-up, the computer can run self-diagnostic
tests and configure hardware and software.
C
CDRH. Center for Devices and Radiological Health. A federal agency responsible for regulating laser product safety. This
agency specifies various laser operation classes based on power output during operation.
CDRH Class 1. This is the lowest power CDRH laser classification. This class is considered intrinsically safe, even if all laser
output were directed into the eye's pupil. There are no special operating procedures for this class.
CDRH Class 2. No additional software mechanisms are needed to conform to this limit. Laser operation in this class poses
no danger for unintentional direct human exposure.
Character. A pattern of bars and spaces which either directly represents data or indicates a control function, such as a
number, letter, punctuation mark, or communications control contained in a message.
Character Set. Those characters available for encoding in a particular bar code symbology.
Glossary - 3
Check Digit. A digit used to verify a correct symbol decode. The scanner inserts the decoded data into an arithmetic formula
and checks that the resulting number matches the encoded check digit. Check digits are required for UPC but are
optional for other symbologies. Using check digits decreases the chance of substitution errors when a symbol is
decoded.
Codabar. A discrete self-checking code with a character set consisting of digits 0 to 9 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.
Code Length. Number of data characters in a bar code between the start and stop characters, not including those
characters.
Cold Boot. A cold boot restarts the mobile computer and erases all user stored records and entries.
COM port. Communication port; ports are identified by number, e.g., COM1, COM2.
Continuous Code. A bar code or symbol in which all spaces within the symbol are parts of characters. There are no
intercharacter gaps in a continuous code. The absence of gaps allows for greater information density.
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
Dead Zone. An area within a scanner's field of view, in which specular reflection may prevent a successful decode.
Decode. To recognize a bar code symbology (e.g., UPC/EAN) and then analyze the content of the specific bar code
scanned.
Decode Algorithm. A decoding scheme that converts pulse widths into data representation of the letters or numbers
encoded within a bar code symbol.
Decryption. Decryption is the decoding and unscrambling of received encrypted data. Also see, Encryption and Key.
Depth of Field. The range between minimum and maximum distances at which a scanner can read a symbol with a certain
minimum element width.
Discrete Code. A bar code or symbol in which the spaces between characters (intercharacter gaps) are not part of the code.
Glossary - 4
MC3000 User Guide
Discrete 2 of 5. A binary bar code 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 numeric
characters (0 to 9) and START/STOP characters may be encoded.
E
EAN. European Article Number. This European/International version of the UPC provides its own coding format and
symbology standards. Element dimensions are specified metrically. EAN is used primarily in retail.
Element. Generic term for a bar or space.
EMDK. Enterprise Mobility Developer’s Kit.
Encoded Area. Total linear dimension occupied by all characters of a code pattern, including start/stop characters and data.
ESD. Electro-Static Discharge
ESN. Electronic Serial Number. The unique hardware number associated with a cellular device, which is transmitted to the
system when the device communicates with the cellular system.
Ethernet. Ethernet communication port. Allows a wired interface to a radio network.
F

Flash Memory. Flash memory is responsible for storing the system firmware and is non-volatile. If the system power is
interrupted the data is not be lost.
G
Gateway Address. An IP address for a network gateway or router. A mobile computer may be part of a subnet as specified
by its IP address and Netmask. It can send packets directly to any node on the same subnet. If the destination node is
on a different subnet, then the terminal sends the packet to the gateway first. The gateway determines how to route the
packet to the destination subnet. This field is an option used by networks that require gateways.
H
Hard Reset. See Cold Boot.
Glossary - 5
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.
I
IEC. International Electrotechnical Commission. This international agency regulates laser safety by specifying various laser
operation classes based on power output during operation.
IEC (825) Class 1. This is the lowest power IEC laser classification. Conformity is ensured through a software restriction of
120 seconds of laser operation within any 1000 second window and an automatic laser shutdown if the scanner's
oscillating mirror fails.
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.
imaging scanning . Mobile computers with an integrated imager use digital camera technology to take a digital picture of
a bar code, store the resulting image in memory and execute state-of-the-art software decoding algorithms to extract
the data from the image.

the intervening spaces to represent the second.
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.
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
