Basic Operations
For operating the touchpanel it is recommended to use the accompanied stylus, since direct
operation with your fingers may cause a malfunction or soil the screen.
The Trigger keys are designed and built so that the terminal can be held by single hand to scan
symbols.
The numeric keys should always be operated by fingers.
When replacing the battery pack, first turn off the terminal power then open the battery
compartment lid to perform battery replacement.
Do not operate the RESET switch on the back of terminal unless the terminal freezes, etc.
There is no guarantee that data currently held will be retained if the RESET switch is pressed
during normal operation.

•
•
VCC++ application development for the DT-X11 using Visual Studio 2005 is not supported.
Always use eMbedded Visual C++ for VCC++ application development.
Compact Framework 2.0 is implemented in the DT-X11. It is upper-compatible with
Compact Framework 1.0 implemented in the CASIO DT-X10 and IT-500.
The functions of the Common Device Control Library which control various individual
devices integrated in the DT-X11 have different name spaces and names from those available
for the previous CASIO handheld terminals. They are not compatible with the ones in the
previous CASIO library.
VB .NET application or C# application developed with Visual Studio .NET 2003, but not
with the CASIO dedicated libraries will run on the DT-X11.
Application developed with any functions of CASIO dedicated library must be rewritten by
replacing the dedicated functions with the appropriate functions from the Common Device
Control Library.
New application for the DT-X11 can be developed using either VB .NET or C# in Visual
Studio .NET 2003 or Visual Studio 2005.
It is recommended that Visual Studio .NET 2003 is used to modify applications developed
for other handheld terminals for the DT-X11.
However, if Visual Studio 2005 is used to make modification, the solution/project of Visual

Contrast
• Can be set in the range of 1 to 9 (Default = 5).
• Can be set in application with ExtEscape()API function.
• Setup values can be modified in the Brightness properties.
Backlight brightness
A brightness of the backlight can be changed in the Control Panel.
• Setting can be made in one of nine grades for power source either when the power is provided
by an external power supply (by the dedicated AC adaptor via cradle) or when the power is
provided by the installed lithium-ion battery pack.
• Setting can be made in application by using ExtEscape()API function.
• If the brightness is set to 1 (minimum), the backlight is turned OFF.
• The default is 9 (maximum) when an external power source is used or 7 when lithium-ion
battery pack is used.
Backlight Auto Dimmer (Only effect when the terminal is powered by battery pack.)
The Control Panel can be used to set up whether or not the auto dimming function is used and the
waiting time until when dimming begins. Auto dimming is effect only when the power is provided
by the lithium-ion battery pack. It will not function when an external power supply is used.
•
If the terminal is left over in idle state - absolutely no key input or touching on the touch panel
- while the power is turned on, the backlight will be automatically dimmed to save the power
after a given period of time has been elapsed.
• When the terminal is in the auto dimmed state, a press of key or a touching on the touch panel
will disable the auto dimming function to resume the brightness.
• While the auto dimming function has been set enabled, brightness can be set in one of eight
grades. The default is 3.
During the auto dimming function being set enabled, brightness cannot be set any brighter than
the brightness illuminated by the backlight. The defaults are “Enable the auto dimming function”
and “1 minute” for waiting time period until when the auto dimming function activates.
39
Auto Backlight OFF (in both cases powered by battery pack and via Cradle/Battery
charger)
The Control Panel can be used to set up whether or not the auto backlight off function is used and
the waiting time until when the auto backlight off function activates. The auto backlight off
function is effect for both when the power is provided by an external power source and when it is
provided by lithium-ion battery pack.
•
•
•
If the terminal is left over in idle state - absolutely no key or touch panel inputting - with the
power being turned on, the backlight will be automatically turned off to save energy.
When the terminal is in the auto backlight off state, a press of key or a touching on the touch
panel will disable the auto backlight off function to resume the brightness.
While the power is being provided by lithium-ion battery pack and both the auto dimming
function and the auto backlight off function have been set enabled, either one of the functions
with preset time period shorter than the other will have the priority. The default is “Enable the
auto backlight off function” and “5 minutes for the waiting time” until when the auto backlight
off function activates.
Backlight brightness control by thermal sensor (in both cases powered by battery pack and
via Cradle/Battery charger)
When the thermal censer detects high temperature of the terminal, brightness of Backlight will be
restricted automatically.
• There are two kinds of restrictions. The first one is to restrict steps of brightness control (9
steps) to up to 8 steps. The second one is to restrict steps of brightness control up to 6 steps.
• If the brightness of normal condition or dimmed brightness set by Automatic Backlight
Dimmer (only battery operation) is set greater than brightness which is beyond the range of
the restricted steps, brightness will be restricted automatically to the inside of the restricted
range. However, when the temperature drops and restriction is released, brightness will
recover to the normal setting level automatically.
• It is possible to confirm if the restriction is effective or not by checking the following registry.
[ HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers\Display\CM7200F1 ]
DispSensorLevel : DWORD (0: Normal, 1, 2)
Rotating Display
The rotate display function for rotating the screen at 180 degree is supported. When the screen is
rotated, the touch panel coordinates system rotates in unison.
•
•
The Common Device Control Library can be used to set up this display rotation feature in
application.
ChangeDisplaySettingEx() API function can be used to set up this display rotation feature
in application.
See Microsoft Help for details about ExtEscape() and ChangeDisplaySettingEx() API
functions.

3.1.7 Memory Management
RAM
The integrated RAM has a total capacity of 64 Mbytes and is used for the following purposes.
• Program memory to be used by the OS and programs.
• Object store used for temporary file saving, etc.
• Other program and OS resident areas beyond the control by the OS
• Buffers for display and camera
• Driver work area
The user can make unrestricted use with the object store, but data stored in it may be lost due to
battery exhaustion, etc. To avoid such incident it should be used just as a temporary storage area,
and use FlashDisk to store important data files.
Table 3.15
Initial memory status
Memory
Program memory capacity
Object store capacity
•
•
Initial Status
Total capacity; 30.85 MB
Total capacity; 30.85 MB
5.2 MB used
0.3 MB used
Of the 64Mbytes of RAM, apart from the above, it is used for OS resident area, buffers for
display and camera and driver work.
In a situation where there is a small open area in the program memory capacity, but a large
user application, the Control Panel can be used to reallocate the memory capacity. However,
in this case, back up for the setting after the change made for allocating the memory capacity
is not possible. If backup for the setting made on the Control Panel is required, use a “Backup
Tool” available from CASIO.
52
FlashDisk
The Flash Disk has 128MB as its total capacity. The disk is released as user disk and can be
accessed as FlashDisk folder. The user disk is available to freely read/write user data such as user
application, master data, transaction data, etc.
The Flash Disk different from RAM does not require a power to back up data in the disk, so data
is not lost even if the terminal’s memory backup battery is exhausted. Be sure to back up
important data files in the RAM to the Flash Disk.
The storage manager in the Control Panel is used for formatting and its management for the Flash
Disk. It is approximately 120MB when the default settings are used to format on the disk. (The
size may alter depending on the Flash Disk conditions.)
If the disk cannot be recognized, it is automatically formatted. This failure to recognize the disk
may not mount the disk itself. The failure does not allow the storage manager in the Control Panel
to perform formatting, and consequently there is no way of mounting the disk again.
To avoid this difficulty, the disk is automatically formatted if it cannot be recognized at time of
resetting. Prior to starting the formatting, a message will appear to ask the user “Yes” or “No” to
continue.

- 1 digit, mod10
- 2 digit, mod10 and mode10
- 2 digit, mod10 and mod10
2. IATA check digit
One of the three IATA check digit calculation methods can be selected.
- Calculate number other than end 1 digit
- Calculate coupon number and numeric value segment
- Calculate numeric value segment
3. Minimum digit on Code39 symbology
The minimum no. of digits can be set to one only when scanning on Code39 symbology is
enabled.
4. Minimum digit on NW-7 symbology
The minimum no. of digits can be set to one only when scanning on NW-7 symbology is
enabled.
5. Minimum digit on Interleaved 2of5
The minimum no. of digits can be set to two only when scanning on Interleaved 2of5
symbology is enabled.
56
6. Minimum and maximum digits on IATA symbology
The minimum no. of digits can be set to 15 or 17 for the maximum only when the IATA check
digit calculation is set to “Coupon number and Calculate data segment” or “Calculate just data
segment”.
7. Maximum digit on RSS Expanded symbology
The maximum digit count for just numeric data is 74. The maximum digit count for just
alphabet data is 41.
•
•
The maximum no. of digits for each symbology in Table 3.20 is based on the optimum
conditions of each relevant element such as the bar code print quality, resolution, PCS,
brightness surrounded, and distance between the terminal and the bar code. Depending on
these conditions, even if one of the maximum no. of digits in the table is set to a bar code
symbology, an individual bar code of that symbology may not be scanned.
If IATA symbology’s minimum no. of digits is set to one, the chance of misreading will
increase. If there is no need to scan a bar code of the symbology with its minimum no. of
digits set to one, do not change the default setting which is 4.
Check Digit Calculation
A bar code value is calculated in accordance with method, and then the calculation result and the
check character at a specific position are compared. If they match, the scanning data is deemed
correct. The calculation method differs according to each symbology.
Readable Digits
The actual readable digit on a bard code differs depending on the resolution and the scanning
distance between the terminal and the bar code.
57
3.2.2
Scanning Method
The laser scanner has “scanning state” (emits laser beam to read a bar code) and “standby state”
(scanning is halted and in standby state). These two states are controlled to start scanning bar code
and stop the scanning.
Table 3.21
Scanning methods

Description
Conditions for scanning to end
Press the trigger key to start
scanning. Scanning is stopped
when either scanning is
succeeded or one of the scan end
conditions is met.
Press the trigger key to start
scanning, and scanning will
continue as long as the trigger
key is pressed down.
Scanning will stop when either
scanning is completed for just
preset no. of times for scanning
or one of the scan end conditions
is met.
Scanner library functions are
used to start and stop scanning.
The previous scanning data and
scanning data overlapped with
other scanning data will be
disregarded. Also, to save the
power during scanning, emitting
laser beam will be turned off
between laser emissions. (see
note)
Timeout
Yes/No
- Timeout time has elapsed.
- OBRClose function is called.
Yes
- Timeout time has elapsed after scanning
a bar code.
- Scanning for the number of preset times
is complete.
- The trigger key is released.
- OBRClose function is called.
- Timeout time has elapsed after scanning

- Scanning end function is called while
scanning continues.
- OBRClose function is called.
Yes
Yes
Note:
The scanning method set as default is with “Continuous scanning (controlled with trigger key)”
and “No. of preset times for continuous scanning = 1”.
Step Scan
This method is for scanning a designated number of bar codes. Once scanning for the designated
number of bar codes has been completed, the scanner will close and not scan again until reopened.
Also, the same bar codes that have been scanned previously cannot be scanned again.
58
3.2.3
Scanning Parameters
Conditions that allow scanning a symbology in specific modes can be set for each readable
symbology.
Readable Symbology
Bar code symbologies that are enabled or disabled for scanning can be specified.
If only specific symbologies are to be scanned, set “Enable” for scanning on these symbologies
only and “Disable” on the other symbologies. This will reduce decode processing time and lower
the error rate. The default is “Enable scanning on all the symbologies”.
Readable Digits
The no. of readable digits can be set for each symbology.
If only specific no. of digits is to be scanned, specify it for each readable symbology. This will
reduce decode processing time and lower the error rate.
Enable/Disable Check Digit
Check digit can be set to “Enable” or “Disable” for each readable symbology. Setting the check
digit will lower the error rate.

either at the Control Panel or using the Common Device Control Library. The default is 3.
59
No. of Scanning Times
In “Continuous Scanning” mode, scanning continues for the preset number of scanning times and
then it will stop in waiting mode. The number of times for scanning can be set in the range of 1 to
9 either at the Control Panel or using the Common Device Control Library. The default is 1.
Scanning Period
Valid time period of scanning after the trigger key is pressed down can be set in the range of 1 to
9 either at the Control Panel or using the Common Device Control Library. After the preset time
has elapsed, the scanner will go into standby mode waiting for the trigger key to be pressed down
again. The default is 3 seconds.
Double Scanning Prevention
This is used to prevent double scanning of the same bar code during the “Continuous Scanning”
mode is being set. Scanning the same bar code again will be prohibited as long as the scanning
continues for the preset number of times. However, it can be scanned when a new “Continuous
Scanning” starts.

3.2.6
Expanded Features
Power ON with Trigger Key
If the Trigger key has been set to “Enable turning on the power with Trigger key”, the power can
be turned ON (while the power was being turned off) when it is pressed down. This function
allows the user to achieve three-step operation with only one action, (1) turn on the power → (2)
press the Trigger key → (3) scan a bar code. This feature is a perfect idea when the user wishes to
resume scanning after the power has been turned off. The default is “Disable turning on the power
with Trigger key”.
Setting Trigger Key
4-way cursor key and side trigger keys can be set as the Trigger key. The default is only both left
and right side keys are set as the Trigger key.
Noise Filter
If the background of a bar code is white color, a noise tends to be generated easily during
scanning causing the error rate to increase. To reduce such the noise, the noise filter function is
available with the terminal. Two methods are available to set the function operable.

Note:

Configuration File
The various setting parameters related to scanning bar code symbols can be stored in a file
(configuration file) and then resumed. The configuration file storage path and its file name are
“\FlashDisk\System Settings\OBRDRV.ini”. If there is no such the configuration file existed, the
default values are used to initiate scanning.
69
Dual Decoder System
The dual decoder system integrated in the terminal initially decodes a scanned bar code data using
the standard decoder, but if the decoding fails, it will use the additional decoder described below
to decode the same bar code data. This dual decoders system supports the bar code symbologies
listed below.
- Code39 symbology
- Code128 symbology
- EAN symbology
With the decoding system used for the previous CASIO handheld terminals, decoding is processed
with a mean value of one module adding bar thickness of each black bar and white bar for one
character when performing binaryzation or quardruplzation of bar thickness. However, this
method does not accurately decode a bar code if it is formed with unbalanced bar thickness
between white bars and black bars.
The dual decoder system can solve it by calculating separately each mean value of black bars and
white bars for such a bar code with unbalanced thickness of white and black bars by changing the
threshold level of decoding.
Customizing the Decoder
According to the scan environment and the bar code printed material’s quality, the integrated
decoder can be customized for efficient scanning performance. First, to maintain scanning
performance with the ordinary decoding logic, perform decoding using the decoder and if it does
not succeed, customize it by tuning the elements in the table below so that the decoding can be
performed better.
Table 3.42 Customizing the elements

of the thickness of bars of a bar

Description
Used to change the threshold values for right and left side marginal
spaces of a bar code symbol printed inside quadrangle.
Used to thicken or thin each bar of a bar code symbol for a specified
value and then decode it.
Value for thickening or thinning bars that form a bar code symbol can be
changed.
70
Changing the threshold values for Right and Left space margins
When a bar code symbol is printed inside quadrangle, scanning may not be possible because there
is not sufficient left side and/or right side marginal space (see Table 3.43). By making change on
the left/right marginal threshold values, scanning a bar code symbol becomes possible.
Table 3.43
When the left marginal space is
narrow.
When the right marginal space is
narrow.
When both right and left
marginal spaces are narrow.
Changing the thickness of bars of bar code symbol
If bars of a bar code are printed thick because blurring or scratchy white bars (spaces between two
bars) are printed thinly, the bar ratio will not be correct causing scanning incorrectly. By adjusting
the thickness of these bars makes scanning the bar code possible. This method is applicable if all
bars of a bar code are either too thick or too thin because the method is applied to the whole of a
bar code.
71
Decoder learning function
This function is to automatically change parameters for criteria and threshold level used to judge
on decoding bar code data so that scanning a bar code printed in poor quality can be improved.
However, after changing the relevant parameters for the decoder learning function, the individual
scanning characteristics of each terminal may be degraded. To avoid such degrade, the integrated
decoding system starts decoding with the standard decoder and then changes with the customized
decoder if decoding at the first stage fails. If the decoding at the end of the process does not
succeed, the decoder learning function is used to ensure it to be succeeded. Setting either “Enable”
or “Disable” for the function to be effect can be set. See the decoding process flow in Fig. 3.3.

Parameter Precedence Change function
The operating order of the relevant parameters used in success decoding bar code data with the
decoder learning function can be advanced for precedence. This advance will result in quick
response of continuously scanning multiple bar codes with similar quality. Since the precedence
order will be stored in the RAM memory, it will be reset to the default order if RESET is
performed on the terminal.
Erratic Scanning Avoidance function
This function fetches the bar code quality rank by calculating the decoder easiness when scanning
a bar code. If the quality rank of scanned bar code is relatively low, the error rate will become
high causing an erratic scanning to occur. To suppress the error rate, the function automatically
makes judgment on scanning with such the bar code as “Failure”.
3.2.7
Power Control
In order to save the power, the power will not be supplied to the laser scan module and the ASIC
module for laser beam control during the laser beam is not irradiating. It will be supplied to these
modules when the laser beam is to be irradiated, and turned off again when the laser beam is not
irradiated.

Read Assisting Functions
Multi-step Read
This function is used to continuously perform decoding as long as one of the Trigger keys (R) and
(L) is held down. Once bar codes are decoded they will not be read any more. This function is
useful for reading all bar codes without repeating the same action when more than one bar code is
printed on one slip.
Package Read
This function is used to output the read result obtained from more than one bar code in a package.
With the multi-step read function, once bar codes are decoded they will not be read any more.
This is useful for handling multiple pieces of bar code data. However, if any of the following
unfavorable conditions occur, all the bar codes may not be read in one capture:
• The objective bar code of read is not contained in the captured image.
• The focus is not sharp enough.
• The exposure is not correct.

Note:
This terminal has been designed so that a maximum of 10 bar codes or 4,095 digits of bar codes
can be read. However, it is not recommended for the user to use the package read mode for
reading bar codes consisting of a large number of digits. If the number of bar codes is greater than
4, or if the total number of digits is greater than 100, use the multiple-step read mode as much as
possible.
76
Decode Deliberation
The deliberation of decoding can be set up in five scales. If it is set up to “Very Quick” or
“Quick”, the decoding speed becomes fast though the number of symbols to be decoded is limited
instead. Or, if it is set up to “Deliberate” or “Very Deliberate”, the speed becomes slow though the
number of symbols to be decoded is increased.

Automatic Combination
The terminal supports the automatic combination of symbols for certain symbologies. The
supported symbologies are Code93, Code49 and QR Code. When the combination end symbol is
read or all symbols of any of these symbologies are read, the data are saved in the buffer and then
all the data are combined and then output.

Process to combine
- If a symbol with space at the forefront of data is read, the data is
saved in the internal buffer.
- And, other symbols with the space at the forefront are continued
to be read. All the read data are saved in the buffer and then
combined in order. The data are not output.
- Lastly, if a symbol staring with non-space data at the forefront is
read, the last symbol data is combined into other symbols in the
buffer and then all the combined symbols are output
The method of the process is the same with that of Code93
symbology. The difference is the forefront of data starting with
“M=1”.
Each symbol of the combination QR Code symbology
includes an identifier that can identify the number of
separations and “n th” symbol for the symbol. The decoder will
combine all the data in order by interpreting each identifier included
in the symbols after reading all the symbols, and output.
Note:
The three symbologies in the table are read only in the normal read mode. Reading the combine
symbologies in the multi-step read and package read modes is not possible.

Decoded data of scanned symbol can be output in binary data instead of character string data. This
enables to scan ciphered data and image, voice sound in binary data, character string delimited

Security
This feature supports security functions laid down in the Bluetooth standard.
The Bluetooth security is divided into authentication and encryption. These are realized by the use
of PassKey (otherwise known as PIN code). PassKey is a shared (common) authentication key
used when forming a connection and trust relationship (bonding) with Bluetooth equipment. A
maximum of 16 characters (in ASCII code) can be used, but there may be limitations on the no. of
digits and usable characters due to the specifications of partner Bluetooth equipment. Also
PassKey input must be done within 30 seconds from a time when PassKey input request is
generated. Note that PassKey input is not required once “device trust” has been established with
Bluetooth equipment in previous connection. However, the partner Bluetooth equipment must
have also the trust relationship in memory.
Encryption is executed using a link key generated after PassKey exchange and a cipher key
generated from a 128-bit random number. Here, the partner Bluetooth equipment also must
support the encryption. PassKey exchange is required for Bluetooth connection when encryption
is set enabled.

Communication Procedures
The following are the basic procedures for using Bluetooth to communicate.
Initializing Bluetooth
This function initializes the Bluetooth using either the Bluetooth tool or the Common Device
Control Library. It will turn ON the power to the Bluetooth module integrated in the terminal and
initialize the Bluetooth protocol stack.
1. Searching a Bluetooth equipment
Searches a Bluetooth equipment using the Bluetooth tool or the Common Device Control
Library. This sends out an equipment search radio wave and captures information from
Bluetooth equipment operable in the vicinity.
2. Capturing service information
Captures service information using either the Bluetooth tool or the Common Device Control
Library. This captures the current usable service (profile) information of the partner Bluetooth
equipment.
3. Security authentication with PassKey exchange
The partner Bluetooth equipment may request a PassKey at a time of capturing service
information and establishing Bluetooth connection.
• In case the Bluetooth tool is used, the same PassKey is input for both Bluetooth equipments
(the terminal and the partner Bluetooth equipment) when a dialogue window appears
requesting PassKey input.
• In case the Common Device Control Library is used, the PassKey must be set in advance by
executing the relative functions for setting PassKey.
4. Establishing the connection
Establishes a Bluetooth connection using either the Bluetooth tool or the Common Device
Control Library. After the connection has been established, communication in Bluetooth can be
continued using the selected profile until the connection is terminated.
5. Terminating the connection
Terminates the connection using either the Bluetooth tool or the Common Device Control
Library.
6. Closing the Bluetooth
Closes the communication via Bluetooth either by ending use of the Bluetooth tool or by
executing relative functions of the Common Device Control Library for closing the
communication, and then turns off the power to the integrated Bluetooth module.
86
3.6.6
Communication Procedures by Profile
While Bluetooth communication takes place, there is a chance that the communication link may
be interrupted due to the air condition, so the retry process is always recommended in application
to verify the communication. In general, it is recommended also that the retry process should be
carried out in any wireless communication including WLAN if it takes place within the vicinity by
other equipment using the same frequency band (“ISM” band) such as microwave oven.
Serial Profile
Bluetooth connection can be managed using either the Bluetooth tool or the Common Device
Control Library.
DUN (Dial-Up Network)
Bluetooth connection can be managed using either the Bluetooth tool or the Common Device
Control Library. The communication will take place with RAS setting using “BTP1”. After the
connection has been established, communication via the TCP/IP protocol is possible.
PAN (Personal Area Network)
Once connection to Access-Point has been established using the Bluetooth tool, communication
via the TCP/IP protocol is possible.
OBEX (Object Push Profile)
File transmission or reception using the Bluetooth tool is possible.
FTP (File Transfer Profile)
File transmission or reception using the Bluetooth tool is possible.
87
3.6.7
Process after Communication Interruption
With Bluetooth communication, there is a chance that the communication link may be interrupted
due to the radio wave condition in air. An error occurred during the communication is detected by
executing WriteFile API function or ReadFile API function, etc.
In case where the communication is interrupted, carry out the normal Bluetooth interruption
process using the Bluetooth tool or in application and then retry to establish the same connection
for communication.
If the normal Bluetooth interruption process is not made, unconformity in the Bluetooth stack will
occur so that the lower layer is disconnected whereas the upper layer is still being connected
causing the retry of establishing the connection is not possible.
3.6.8
Processing During Suspend/Resume
When the terminal goes into suspend mode while Bluetooth is being used, the power to the
Bluetooth module integrated in the terminal will be automatically turned off. After that, when the
terminal resumes operation mode, the power to the Bluetooth module also will be turned on
automatically. Once the power is turned off, all the parameters related to Bluetooth
communication return to their initial states. These parameters must be set again in the Bluetooth
module by initializing the Bluetooth stack.
If the Bluetooth tool is used, it will automatically detect “suspend” and “resume” modes, and
automatically initialize the Bluetooth stack. Note, however, that if WakeOn Bluetooth function
has been set enabled, the power to the Bluetooth module will remain on even if suspend is
executed. This will not initialize the Bluetooth stack.
3.6.9
Setting SR Mode Parameter
When executing Bluetooth communication, the connection will be established by transmitting
radio waves by master Bluetooth equipment to slave Bluetooth equipment. Note that it may take
time sometime to make the establishment depending on a type of the partner Bluetooth equipment.
Here, by altering the SR mode parameter (used in Bluetooth connection), radio waves sent out
when the master Bluetooth equipment makes the establishment will change, and may reduce the
time required to establish the communication. The SR mode parameter can be set in the following
registry.
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\RXBT\HCI]
Table 3.59
Key
DEFAULT_PAGE_SCAN_REP_MODE
Setting Value
dword:0/1/2
Meaning
0:R0, 1:R1, 2:R2
Notes:
• Change the SR mode parameter prior to Bluetooth connection.
• Even if the SR mode parameter is changed, the time required to establish connection with the
partner Bluetooth equipment may not be reduced.
88
3.7 WLAN
The IEEE802.11b WLAN is operable on the models, DT-X11M10RC and DT-X11M30RC. The
IEEE802.11b standard utilizes unlicensed 2.4 GHz ISM (Industry, Science, and Medical)
frequency band, which is used for close range wireless communication.
Device Name
On the terminal, the device name used to capture data for the WLAN driver with
DeviceIoControl function is “GWCF1”.
3.7.1
Basic Specifications
Roaming
This function automatically switches Access-Point in environment where two or more
Access-Points with identical SSID code exist.
Power Saving
This saves the power by automatically turning OFF the power to the integrated WLAN module in
the terminal when communicating does not take place.
AdHoc
This operation mode provides a direct communication between wireless equipments without the
use of Access-Point. Note, however, that the AdHoc mode is not recommended because
connection problem may occur.
WEP
This is an encryption function that uses RC4 method for safe communication. It supports 40-bit
(64-bit)/104-bit (128-bit).
TKIP
TKIP is supported to combat the weakness with WEP encryption.
IEEE802.1x Security
This can strengthen authentication and establish a safer WLAN. Usually, this is interlinked with
TKIP. It supports WPA PSK and WPA EAP (PEAP-EAP-TLS, PEAP-MS-CHAP-V2, MD5, and
EAP-TLS.
89
3.7.2
Expanded Features
Power ON/OFF Control
The power to the integrated WLAN module can be controlled in application. Turning OFF the
power when the WLAN module is not in use can save power, prevent line congestion and allow
the on-board use in aircraft (consult first with a flight attendant for the use in aircraft).
Operation Configuration File
The operation configuration file can be used to set each default value of the WLAN settings.
However, if IEEE802.1x is set enabled, the configuration file cannot be used to set the default
values.
Resume Operation
After the terminal went into suspend mode and then returned in resume mode during wireless
operation, this will automatically establish connection again with the Access-Point to enable
continuous wireless communication.
Out of Range/In Range
This will automatically establish connection again with the Access-Point to enable continuous
wireless communication when the terminal returns within the range from out side of the range of
the Access-Point during wireless operation.
This will automatically reconnect to the Access-Point if connection establishment with the
Access-Point cannot be maintained due to noise or interference, or roaming is not possible for
some reason.
90
3.7.3
Roaming
This feature automatically switches the Access-Point located in environment where multiple
Access-Points with the identical SSID code exist.
1.
2.
3.
4.
Searches for Access-Points that can be communicated with the terminal, and lists up radio
wave status of each Access-Point.
Compares radio wave status of the currently connected Access-Point with those for the listed
Access-Points.
If the comparison proves that one of the listed Access-Points has a better radio wave status
than the one currently being connected with the terminal, the terminal will make a request of
roaming to that Access-Point.
If roaming permission comes from the Access-Point to the terminal, the roaming will
complete. Note that if the roaming fails, the connection establishment will be disconnected
and then connected again.
Notes:
• In some cases, the Access-Point may request the terminal for forcible roaming or reconnection
with other Access-Point.
• If connection establishment of the Access-Point being connected with the terminal is
terminated due to some reasons such as turning OFF the power on the Access-Point, the
terminal may be forced to make a connection with other Access-Point.
• If it takes time for Access-Point to correspond for roaming request made by the terminal, the
reconnection process may be initiated.
• If DeAuthentication or DisAssociation message issued by the Access-Point that is being
connected with the terminal after roaming, the connection establishment between the
Access-Point and the terminal may be interrupted temporarily and then connected again.
91
3.7.4
Zeroconfig
This feature coordinates with the module firmware and the WLAN driver to perform some of the
WLAN link management and the Network management.
1. If multiple SSIDs are registered as prioritized connections, attempt to establish connection will
be performed to each registered SSID. In this case, the interval of time period for reconnecting
will become prolonged. If the reconnection time is considered to be as importance, register
one SSID only as prioritized connection.
2. Reconnection loop process will initiate when a disconnection notification is issued by the
module, or when Association fails.
3. The reconnection loop process will end when the terminal succeeds connection establishment
with one of the multiple SSIDs registered as prioritized connections.
Connection Process
Zeroconfig will instruct the WLAN driver and the WLAN module to make connection when
finding an Access-Point registered in the prioritized SSID list. Each firmware of the driver and the
module both instructed initiates necessary process following the rules of IEEE802.11b standards
to make connection with the Access-Point. If multiple SSIDs are registered as prioritized
connections in the prioritized SSID list, attempt to establish connection with each SSID will be
made.
Disconnection Process
In the following cases, the connection establishment with Access-Point will be disconnected.
Firmware in the WLAN module judges on the disconnection and the roaming process.
1. When the quality of radio wave in air deteriorates because of interference from other WLAN
equipment, noise, similar causes, or on-air communication by other WLAN devices.
2. When the Access-Point locates far from the terminal, or when radio waves are weakened due
to obstacles.
3. When other Access-Point that can allow roaming to avoid the poor environment described in
the situations 1 and 2 above cannot be found.
Resume Process
The following processes are performed when the terminal goes into resume mode.
-
Unloading the driver
Loading the driver
Initializing
Scanning Access-Point
Creating the Access-Point list
Establishing connection with Access-Point
Changing the Task tray icon

Channels
The factory set default the no. of channels is set to “1CH-13CH” (13 channels).
3.7.6
WLAN Setting with Configuration File
The configuration file can be used to set the default values for the WLAN settings. By loading the
configuration file into the terminal, settings required for WLAN operation can be easy.
•
•
•
The path of the configuration file is “\FlashDisk\System Settings\WLANCFG.ini”.
If no configuration file is available, WLAN operation is initiated with the default settings.
When the IEEE802.1x standard is set enabled, the default values cannot be changed using the
configuration file.
Timing to Load the File
The timing for incorporating the configuration file is when a reset or a full reset is performed on
the terminal. When loading the configuration, if the file itself does not exist, its format is wrong,
or the file has been specified as “Disable configuration file”, the default settings will not be made
using the configuration file.
Creation Method
The net search utility can be used to set and change the default settings. Editor available generally
also can be used to set the default settings. Note, however, that the WEP key has to be described
as being in encryption status, so use the net search utility to create an encrypted character string in
advance and copy it. The WLAN settings made using Microsoft’s “WLAN setting” will not be
reflected in the configuration file.
93
File Format
File format of the configuration file is INI format with the specifications described below.
• The maximum size of the configuration file is 60Kbytes.
• A line starting with “;” is regarded as a comment. It is not regarded as a comment if it locates
in the middle of a line.
• The separator for KEY and VALUE is “=“. Space and tab, etc., also are included in KEY and
VALUE. If a space is inserted after “=“ in “SSID=□tunami”, the SSID value is space +
tunami.
• The end of a line is CR or CR/LF.
• The maximum length of a line is 256 bytes.
• Section name, KEY, and VALUE are case sensitive.

Reset Controls
Power ON Reset
In the condition that the power on the terminal is not supplied by AC adaptor and the battery pack
and the memory backup battery are not being installed (including the state that the capacity of the
battery pack has been discharged), this occurs if the battery pack is installed and then the power is
turned ON. All of memory - DRAM data storage memory (data saved by the user, database,
applications installed in the DRAM, etc.), program execution memory and memory used by
drivers - will be initialized (cleared). Data in the FROM will be maintained.
Reset
This occurs when the Reset switch is pressed while the terminal is operating (power ON status).
Care must be taken before performing the reset because if it takes place while operation continues
on the terminal, in-progress data and files being accessed may be corrupted.
If the Reset switch is pressed when the power is turned off, the power will be turned on and the
terminal starts up. Memory for executing DRAM programs and unsaved in-progress data will be
cleared, but data storage memory and data in the FROM will be maintained.
Full Reset
This occurs if the power key is held down at the same time and the Reset switch is pressed for a
period of one second or more while the terminal is in operation.
For the full reset, the following two different messages will appear to confirm whether or not it is
okay to continue the reset of operations.
To cancel the full reset operation, press the Trigger L key. Pressing the Trigger R key will cause
the message in Fig. 3.4 to appear. Pressing the Trigger R key at the second time will clear all data
in the memory (for data storage, working area for the OS and programs), and initialize the
memory.
Fig. 3.3
Fig. 3.4
98
3.8.2
Memory Corruption Check
At a time of reset under WindowsCE OS, RAM data corruption is detected if any. If a RAM data
corruption is detected, the memory will be unconditionally initialized without issuing a warning
message to the user.
To prevent this memory initialization without issuing a message, check the status of data used for
memory check in the driver before the process for OS booting up. If a memory corruption is
detected, the following message, asking for confirmation of whether it is okay to implement
recovery (reset), will appear.
Fig. 3.5
The Trigger R key is pressed to continue the rest of operations (reset). Once the Trigger R key is
pressed while the confirmation message is on the screen, the reset process will be executed and
the recovery process is attempted.

Power Saving
Idle
The power consumption will be saved by putting the CPU into idle state when event standby
status is detected by either the terminal or application running on the terminal. The peripheral
devices will run while the CPU is in the idle state.
APO (Auto Power OFF)
The power is automatically turned OFF when the state of no key input, or no touching on the
touch panel, is detected within a preset time period. Setting the APO function enabled or disabled,
or a time period to activate the function can be performed using the Common Device Control
Library.
Dimming and ABO (Auto Backlight OFF)
The backlight is automatically dimmed or turned off when a preset time period has elapsed if the
state of no key input, or no touching on the touch panel, is detected within the period. Setting a
time period before starting dimming and a time period before turning off the backlight (Auto
backlight OFF), and setting “Enable/Disable” on the dimming and auto backlight OFF functions
can be set using the Common Device Control Library.
CPU Clock Frequency Control
The method of moving to the Turbo mode can be set by each user, and the CPU clock frequency
can be switched from 200 MHz to 400 MHz.

3.9 Security
3.9.1
Setting Password for Terminal
This is the password setting implemented in the WindowsCE OS. A password can be set at the
Control Panel.
3.9.2
Setting Password for Date/Time Properties
This is to enable setting a password for accessing the date and time setting in order to prevent the
user from changing the settings of the terminal. Use PASSTOOL located under Windows folder
to make the setting. Password registered will be saved in the FlashROM along with individual ID
setting, etc.
3.9.3
Setting Individual ID
Individual ID is written into a predetermined area in the FlashROM at time of shipping the
terminal from the factory. Distributor code (a code used to protect distributor developed software
from illegal copying by unauthorized party) is saved in other area different from the individual ID.
The individual ID incorporates the product code and serial number etc. and always becomes a
unique code different from other units. The Common Device Control Library can be used to read
the individual ID set on each unit of the terminal.
3.9.4
Setting Distributor ID
The individual ID and distributor ID can be used by the distributor and user to prevent illegal use
of application by unauthorized party at a time of installing or executing the illegally copied
application by checking these preset codes. The distributor code is saved in the FlashROM area,
and read using the Common Device Control Library.

Description
Establishes network connection via phone line or ISDN line.
Establishes network connection with the terminal via cable (IrDA, Bluetooth
included).
This is a protocol provided by Microsoft for cipher communications. Information
can be passed safely via the Internet because information is encrypted and
sent/received between two PCs.
This is a protocol that forms a virtual tunnel in the public line network (Internet,
etc.), and establishes a PPP connection via the network to configure VPN. This
protocol is the second layer (data link layer) of OSI basic reference model, and it can
be used not only via IP network but also via various paths such as frame relay and
ATM.
This enables the use of PPP (needed for calls for phone and ISDN lines) in “constant
connection” environment such as LAN.

Precautions on Using CMOS Imager
The DT-X11M30E, M30U, and M30RC provide with capabilities for not only simply reading
conventional 1D bar code symbols but also for reading 2D code symbols with the integrated
CMOS Imager, which has replaced the conventional laser scanner. In addition, the improved
camera function has added a new aspect of operation including image capturing and streaming, etc.
In association with these features, the read and operation methods have also changed from those
of conventional laser scanners.
This chapter describes the performance and functions of the CMOS Imager as well as operating
precautions and suggestions. Note that this chapter contains only supplement information for the
imager, so please refer to Common Device Control Library manual or relevant chapters in this
manual for detailed information about each function.
The imager is explained by focusing on the following three points:
• Imaging performance by camera’s optical operability
• Imaging performance by print quality
• Imaging performance by read settings.
213
5.1 Imaging Performance by Camera’s Optical Operability
Soiled camera filter
If the camera filter inside the case is soiled or scratched, the captured image will lose its sharpness,
making the symbols difficult to read. If the filter is soiled with oil, finger prints, etc., wipe the
filter with a soft, damp cloth to avoid damaging the filter surface.
Focal plane and depth of field
As with a fixed-focus camera this imager has a limited range in which it can produce a sharp
image. The subject plane in which the camera can produce a sharp image is called the focal plane,
the distance from the camera’s device surface to the focal plane is called the focal distance, and
the range within which the subject remains sharp and in focus is called the depth of field.
The focal distance of the imager incorporated into the terminal, is 18 cm (or 7 inches), and the size
of the focal plane is 8 cm x 11 cm.
The depth of field is generally formed by two distances, one of which (near side) is calculated as
one third of the focal distance in the outward direction and the other (far side) is calculated as two
thirds of the focal distance in the inward direction. Accordingly, the depth of field of the camera
is:
Near side : 18 x (1-1/3) = 12 cm
Far side : 18 x (1+2/3) = 30 cm
However, this range varies with the ambient brightness - it becomes smaller than that calculated
above if the image is captured in a dark place.
Focal plane
Focal distance
Depth of field
Fig. 5.1
214
Variation of ambient light
This imager will detect the ambient brightness from the obtained image and calculate the optimum
exposure time or sensitivity (gain) to prepare for the next image capture. Therefore, if a new
capture is made in an environment different from the previous capture, it may be required to
repeat the capture several times until the optimum value can be calculated. In addition, the imager
is affected by various light-related conditions, such as a location by a window, overcast weather,
sun and shade, morning and evening settings, etc., which generally are not a conscious
consideration for humans (and are handled without conscious thought).
Reflected light from the illumination LED, backlight
In addition to direct light from the light source (producing the effect of backlight), reflected light
of the illumination LED, re-reflected light on the lens in an excessively bright environment, etc.,
may cause part of the symbol to disappear into the white background or hamper the correct
exposure calculation, resulting in decoding no longer being possible. Such a detrimental effect of
the illumination LED can be avoided by the “LED Light Intensity Adjustment Function”,
described later.
Position of the Imager
The Imager is oriented at a 45-degree downward angle, if the terminal is held horizontally. Thus,
the Imager faces obliquely upward if the terminal is held vertically as shown below, and faces
obliquely downward if the terminal is held horizontally. And, if the terminal is inclined 45 degrees,
the Imager will now be held horizontally, so it will face straight towards the object.
In order to avoid a mirror reflection (occurs within ±5 degrees from the shooting direction of the
Imager), it is recommended to hold the Imager at a 30 degree inward inclination so that image
capturing can be performed under a condition where the target symbol is slightly above the top
edge of the terminal.
Fig. 5.2
215
Moving object, hand blurring
The Imager requires a certain amount of exposure time for image capturing. This means that if the
subject is moving during this interval, the resultant image will be blurred. Therefore, if you need
to capture a symbol while looking for its location, it is advised to adjust the Imager to the location
of the symbol with the aimer LED, then perform reading with the Imager held still so that the
objective symbol, as well as the resulting image of the symbol, is also still relative to the Imager.
Sensitivity and noise
Due to the nature of CMOS sensor, it has poor sensitivity and the image is easily affected by noise.
In particular, this is significant when image capturing is attempted in a dark place or the subject is
far from the Imager.
Tips to optimum image capturing
•
•
•
•
•
•
Always keep the Imager filter clean.
Remember that the optimum image capturing distance is around 18 cm.
As much as possible, capture a symbol in a location where the variation in ambient light is
small.
Hold the terminal so it is inclined 30 degrees inward and so that the symbol can be seen in a
position slightly above the terminal.
To read a symbol, first adjust the Imager position with the aiming LED and then begin
capturing by holding the terminal still (fixed).
In a dark location it is advisable to capture within the effective coverage of the illumination
LED while ensuring sufficient illumination for the distance area.

5.3 Imaging Performance by Print Quality
Print quality
Generally, a printer that has a resolution higher than 400 dpi is considered as capable of printing
symbols at a dot size smaller than 0.125 mm. In an actual application it is preferable to perform
printing so that one fine bar (cell) consists of 3 to 5 dots, and in that case, the resulting dot size
will be between 0.18 to 0.38 mm.
Some printers have the capability to emphasize fine lines, which may produce a difference in the
width of black/white bars (cells) from that produced with other printers, even if these two
black/white bars (cells) indicate an identical value. In this case, increase the width of the fine bars
(size per cell) of each symbol to relatively reduce the difference.
Also, if a symbol is duplicated by a copy machine or sent through a facsimile, the print quality of
the entire symbol is reduced. The readability becomes less than the original. Also, in this case it is
possible to restrict the relative error by printing the symbol so that it becomes larger in size than
the original. However, an enlarged copy is useless, since the printing error must also be relatively
enlarged. Even with the given print quality it is sometimes possible to improve readability by
specifying “Print Weight”, as described..
Margins around a symbol, character, figure, peripheral object
A CMOS Imager is different from a laser scanner and will capture a symbol in terms of the area.
Therefore, the resulting image may contain characters, figures, and objects other than the target
symbol and may require an extended period of time to detect the symbol and increase the
frequency of read errors, if a complex picture is captured. To avoid this problem it is
recommended to provide a sufficient margin around the symbol and to refrain from printing
unnecessary characters and figures.

4 times larger than one cell.
221
Error correction for 2D symbols
The CMOS Imager is provided with an error correction function that can handle various types of
damage to symbols, such as that caused by dirt and dust, scratches, faintness, etc. However, this
function can only handle damage that appears locally in the symbol area, and is not effective if the
entire symbol is soiled or faint.
Furthermore, it is not possible for the Imager to read symbols if a cutout mark required for
detecting the symbol position is obscured.
Fig. 5.9
222
Symbols on glossy paper or under a film window
With the CMOS Imager, the illumination LED will irradiate the target surface for reading symbols.
This may sometimes cause the objective symbol to fade into the background due to the adverse
effect of the reflected light of the LED when the symbol is printed on a glossy paper or covered by
a film window.
In order to read symbols under such conditions, either reduce the LED illumination using the
“Adjusting LED illumination intensity”, as described, or turn off the LED so that the
reading is made under the ambient light only.
Mobile symbols (for a reference)
Mobile symbols (displayed on LCDs of cellular phones) can be read easily if you turn off the
illumination LED and turn on the backlight. However, the terminal does not formally support the
mobile symbol read function.
Tips to optimum image capturing
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
The printed bar width for 1D symbols and 2D symbols should be 0.2 mm or greater and 0.38
mm or greater, respectively.
Be aware of the number of digits the symbol represents.
Check the resolution of the printer with regard to whether a fine bar consists of 3 to 5 dots.
Remember that a symbol copied or transmitted through a facsimile machine results in poor
printed quality.
Do not overestimate the 2D symbol correction function.
Do not print extra characters and figures around the symbol.
Exercise care with the reflected light of the LED when reading a symbol on a glossy paper or
behind a film.

5.4 Imaging Performance by Settings
Selecting only the symbol to capture
The CMOS Imager can read various kinds of symbols. However, in general, symbols that the user
must read during actual daily operation are very limited only to several kinds. If the image
capturing permission is set in such a way that even unnecessary symbols are included, the search
range for decoding will be widened, the time to complete the capturing will be prolonged, and the
frequency of read errors will increase, unnecessarily. It is strongly recommended to limit the
number of symbols to be given capture permission in accordance with user’s daily application.
Specifying the limited number of digits
In addition to the above mentioned restriction that applies to the selected symbols, each of the
symbols available for the user has a specific number of digits that can be captured. Specifying the
number of digits for which to exceed the given range may cause errors (in particular, an
abbreviated capture). To avoid this, as with the objective symbols specification, specify an
appropriate range of digits for the actual operation.
Check digit calculation
Some symbols contain a check digit (or check character) used to validate the contained data. The
check digit calculation function is essential for these symbols, however, it is recommended to also
apply it to other symbols that allow the selection of this function.
Specifying the print density (“Print Weight”)
Suppose that two sets of black/white bars (cells), both indicating an identical value, are printed on
different surfaces, one of which is normal and the other of which is prone to be affected by the
print intensity of the printer or the reflection from a metallic surface. If these two printed results
have a difference in appearance, it may be possible to improve the capture accuracy with this
function. Use a smaller value if the printed section (dark bar/cell) looks
Fig. 5.10
224
Adjusting LED illumination intensity
If the target symbol is printed on a glossy paper or behind a film that readily reflects incident light,
or where the scanning environment is bright enough to eliminate the use of illumination LED, it is
possible to restrict reflected light by modifying the illumination intensity of the LED itself. This is
also useful for extending the battery life.

Depending on your application, adjust the following settings to each optimum value:
- Symbols permitted for capture
- Number of digits to capture
- Check digit calculation
For OCR fonts capture, specify the most appropriate template and checksum.
Depending on your application, use the following functions.
- Print density
- Capture range

5.5 Troubleshooting
Table 5.4
Check item
Symbol cannot be captured.
Is the Imager filter soiled ?
Is the filter damaged ?
Is the symbol resolution too fine or
too rough?
Remedies
Reference
page
Wipe off the dirt with a soft cloth.
Replace the filter.
Printing should be made at a resolution of 0.2 to 1 mm for 1D
symbols, and 0.38 to 1 mm for 2D symbols.
214

220
Is the symbol too large?
If the full data is not contained in one symbol, divide it into two
or more symbols.
224
Are symbols printed with a
sufficient contrast? In addition, does
the printed surface look white or
have light-warm color, or is the
symbol printed in black or in a
dark-cool color?
Print the symbol so that the contrast of the symbol is
significant. Also, print the symbol in black on a white
background.
225
Does the symbol have a sufficient
margin around it?
Do not print extra characters or figures around the symbol.
Allow a sufficient margin around the symbol.
221
Is the paper on which the symbol is
printed glossy? Is it covered by a
film, etc.?
Symbols must be printed on paper with less gloss. Do not
overlap film, etc., on the symbol.
223
Reduce the LED illumination intensity of the Imager.
Set the symbol to be enabled for capturing.
225
224
Is the parameter setting for the
symbol to be captured correct?
Set the parameters correctly for the symbol.
- Check if the number of characters derived from the symbol
is within the specified range.
- Check if the check digit calculation is specified for symbols
that do not require the check digit calculation.
224
Is the green LED irradiating the
symbol?
Turn on the green LED so as to irradiate the center of the target
symbol.
--
Is the Imager too close to or too far
from the symbol?
Try to change the distance between the Imager and the symbol.
214
Is the symbol or Imager fixed for
capturing?
Fix the symbol or Imager for capturing.
215
Is the environment for capturing
symbol dark?
Sufficiently illuminate the symbol to be captured.
225
Is the symbol directly irradiated by
the illumination? In addition, is the
illumination beam an incident beam
or a reflected beam into the Imager?
Prevent the symbol and Imager from being directly irradiated
by intense light.
215
Is the objective symbol enabled by
the setup for capturing?
Continue.
226
Check item
The captured result is incorrect.
Are unnecessary symbols set to be
captured?
Remedies
