Alpha/Application
These keys can have an application assigned to the function value and have an alpha
value assigned when used with the ALPHA function key.
On Windows Mobile 5.0 devices: F6 and F7 keys cannot be remapped and are
dedicated by the Operating System to control volume level. When these keys are
pressed, Shell.exe traps them and displays the volume adjustment window. To get these
keys to an application, call GXOpenInput() at the beginning of the application and call
GXCloseInput() at the end of the application. This redirects all of the key events to an
application, including the F6 and F7 keys.
Note: Other applications cannot receive any key event until GXCloseInput() is called.
For example, if the customer is using the APP1 key to run Calc.exe, this is disabled
during this period.

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.
The imager uses digital camera technology to take a digital picture of a bar code, stores the resulting image in
its memory and executes state-of-the-art software decoding algorithms to extract the data from the image.
Aiming the Imager
The mobile computer’s integrated imager projects a laser aiming pattern (field of view) similar to those used on
cameras. The aiming pattern is used to position the bar code or object within the field of view.
Operating the MC909X 2 - 51
Figure 2-28 Laser Aiming Pattern (Field of View)
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.
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).
Image Capture Mode
This mode allows the user to capture an image within the mobile computer’s field of view. The user can use the
mobile computer to capture signatures or images of items like damaged boxes.
Scanning Considerations
Typically, scanning is a simple matter of aim, scan/decode and a few quick trial efforts master it. However, two
important considerations can be used to optimize any 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 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
Scanning angle is important for promoting quick decodes. 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 don’t 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.
2 - 52 MC909X User Guide
NOTE
Contact the Symbol Support Center if chronic scanning difficulties develop. Decoding of properly printed
bar codes should be quick and effortless.
Scanning Bar Codes
1.
Ensure that a scan enabled application is loaded on the mobile computer.
2.
Aim the scan exit window at the bar code.
3.
Pull the trigger.
•
For mobile computers with a laser scanner, ensure the red scan beam covers the entire bar code. The
red scan LED lights to indicate that the laser is on. The green scan LED lights and an audible beep
sounds, by default, to indicate the bar code was decoded successfully.
Figure 2-29 Laser Scanner Aiming Pattern
•
For mobile computers with an imager, place the bar code 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 red laser aiming pattern turns on to assist in aiming. If necessary, the mobile computer turns on its
red LED to illuminate the target bar code. The green scan LED lights and an audible beep sounds, by
default, to indicate the bar code was decoded successfully. Note that when the mobile computer is in
Pick List Mode, the bar code is not decoded until the crosshair is touching the bar code.

NOTE
Imager decoding usually occurs instantaneously. The mobile computer repeats the steps required to take
a digital picture (image) of a poor or difficult bar code, as long as the trigger remains pulled.
Scanning Tips
Optimal scanning distance varies with bar code density and scanner optics.
•
Hold the scanner farther away for larger symbols.
•
Move the scanner closer for symbols with bars that are close together.
NOTE
Scanning procedures depend on the application and mobile computer configuration. An application may
use different scanning procedures from the one listed above.

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.
Symbol 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 Symbol mobile computers to operate in any infrastructure. AFH is always enabled in
the MC909X.
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
3-2
MC909X User Guide
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 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.

(IEEE). It specifies an over-the-air interface between a wireless client and a base station or between two
wireless clients.
802.11a. Operates in the 5 GHz frequency range (5.125 to 5.85 GHz) with a maximum 54Mbit/sec. signaling
rate. The 5 GHz frequency band is not as crowded as the 2.4 GHz frequency because it offers significantly
more radio channels than the 802.11b and is used by fewer applications. It has a shorter range than 802.11g
and is not compatible with 802.11b.
802.11b. Operates in the 2.4 GHz Industrial, Scientific and Measurement (ISM) band (2.4 to 2.4835 GHz) and
provides signaling rates of up to 11Mbit/sec. This is a very commonly used frequency. Microwave ovens,
cordless phones, medical and scientific equipment, as well as Bluetooth devices, all work within the 2.4 GHz
ISM band.
802.11g. Similar to 802.11b, but this standard supports signaling rates of up to 54Mbit/sec. It also operates in
the heavily used 2.4 GHz ISM band but uses a different radio technology to boost overall throughput.
Compatible with the 802.11b.
