Before using the wearable terminal for the first time, charge the main battery until the amber Charge Status
LED remains lit (see Table 1-3 on page 1-6 for charge status indications).
The wearable terminal is equipped with a memory backup battery which automatically charges from the main
battery whether or not the wearable terminal is operating or is in suspend mode. The memory backup battery
retains data in memory for at least 30 minutes when the wearable terminal's main battery is removed or fully
discharged. When the wearable terminal 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 wearable terminal for 15 hours to ensure that the memory backup battery fully charges. If
the main battery is removed from the wearable terminal or the main battery is fully discharged, the memory
backup battery completely discharges in several hours.
When the wearable terminal reaches a very low battery state, the combination of main battery and backup
battery retains data in memory for at least 24 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.

all running programs.
A cold boot also restarts the wearable terminal, but erases all stored records and entries in RAM. Data saved in
flash memory or a memory card is not lost. In addition it returns formats, preferences and other settings to the
factory default settings.
Perform a warm boot first. This restarts the wearable terminal and saves all stored records and entries. If the
wearable terminal still does not respond, perform a cold boot.
Performing a Warm Boot
Hold down the Power button for approximately five seconds. As soon as the wearable terminal starts to
perform a warm boot release the Power button.
Using the Wearable Terminal 2 - 15
Performing a Cold Boot
A cold boot restarts the wearable terminal and erases all user stored records and entries that are not saved in
flash memory (Application and Platform folders). Never perform a cold boot unless a warm boot does not solve
the problem.
NOTE
Any data previously synchronized with a computer can be restored during the next ActiveSync operation.
To perform a cold boot press and simultaneously hold the 1, 9 and Power button. Do not hold down any other
keys or buttons. The wearable terminal initializes.
2 - 16 WT4070/90 Wearable Terminal User Guide
Data Capture
Wearable terminals used with an optional wearable laser scanner allow collection of data by scanning one
dimensional bar codes.
Laser Scanning
Wearable terminals with an optional wearable laser scanner have the following features:
• Reading of a variety of bar code symbologies, including the most popular linear, postal, and 1-D code
types.
• Advanced intuitive laser aiming for easy point-and-shoot operation.
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.
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 wearable terminal.
2.
Aim the scan exit window at the bar code.
3.
Press the trigger.
• 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. An audible beep might sound, if the application determines, to
indicate the bar code was decoded successfully.
Using the Wearable Terminal 2 - 17
Figure 2-11 Laser Scanner Aiming Pattern
Release the trigger.
4.
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 wearable terminal configuration. An application
may use different scanning procedures from the one listed above.
Scan LED Indicator
The LED on the scanner provides a visual indication of the scan status.

A
API. An interface by means of which one software component communicates with or controls another. Usually
used to refer to services provided by one software component to another, usually via software interrupts or
function calls
Application Programming Interface. See API.
ANSI Terminal. A display terminal that follows commands in the ANSI standard terminal language. For
example, it uses escape sequences to control the cursor, clear the screen and set colors. Communications
programs support the ANSI terminal mode and often default to this terminal emulation for dial-up
connections to online services.
ASCII. American Standard Code for Information Interchange. A 7 bit-plus-parity code representing 128 letters,
numerals, punctuation marks and control characters. It is a standard data transmission code in the U.S.
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.
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.
Codabar. A discrete self-checking code with a character set consisting of digits 0 to 9 and six additional
characters: (-$:/,+).
Code 128. A high density symbology which allows the controller to encode all 128 ASCII characters without
adding extra symbol elements.
Code 3 of 9 (Code 39). A versatile and widely used alphanumeric bar code symbology with a set of 43
character types, including all uppercase letters, numerals from 0 to 9 and 7 special characters (space, minus
(-), plus (+), period (.), dollar sign ($), slash (/), and percent (%)). 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.
Cold Boot. A cold boot restarts the wearable terminal and erases all user stored records and entries.
COM port. Communication port; ports are identified by number, e.g., COM1, COM2.
Cradle. A cradle is used for charging the terminal battery and for communicating with a host computer, and
provides a storage place for the terminal when not in use.
D
DCP. See Device Configuration Package.
Glossary - 3
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.
Device Configuration Package. The Symbol Device Configuration Package provides the Product Reference
Guide (PRG), flash partitions, Terminal Configuration Manager (TCM) and the associated TCM scripts. With
this package hex images that represent flash partitions can be created and downloaded to the wearable
terminal.
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.
ENQ (RS-232). ENQ software handshaking is also supported for the data sent to the host.
ESD. Electro-Static Discharge
F
Flash Disk. An additional megabyte of non-volatile memory for storing application and configuration files.
Flash Memory. Flash memory is nonvolatile, semi-permanent storage that can be electronically erased in the
circuit and reprogrammed. Wearable terminals use Flash memory to store the operating system
(ROM-DOS), the terminal emulators, and the Citrix ICA Client for DOS.
File Transfer Protocol (FTP). A TCP/IP application protocol governing file transfer via network or telephone
lines. See TCP/IP.
FTP. See File Transfer Protocol.

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.
IOCTL. Input/Output Control.
Interleaved Bar Code. A bar code in which characters are paired together, using bars to represent the first
character and 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.
Internet Protocol Address. See IP.
I/O Ports. interface The connection between two devices, defined by common physical characteristics, signal
characteristics, and signal meanings. Types of interfaces include RS-232 and PCMCIA.
Input/Output Ports. I/O ports are primarily dedicated to passing information into or out of the terminal’s
memory. Wearable terminals include Serial and USB ports.
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.

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). SSL is a commonly-used protocol for managing the security of a message
transmission on the Internet. SSL uses a program layer located between the Internet's Hypertext Transfer
Protocol (HTTP) and Transport Control Protocol (TCP) layers. SSL is included as part of both the Microsoft
and Netscape browsers and most Web server products. Developed by Netscape, SSL also gained the
support of Microsoft and other Internet client/server developers as well and became the de facto standard
until evolving into Transport Layer Security. The “sockets” part of the term refers to the sockets method of
passing data back and forth between a client and a server program in a network or between program layers
in the same computer. SSL uses the public-and-private key encryption system from RSA, which also
includes the use of a digital certificate.

T
TCP/IP. (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) A communications protocol used to internetwork
dissimilar systems. This standard is the protocol of the Internet and has become the global standard for
communications. TCP provides transport functions, which ensures that the total amount of bytes sent is
received correctly at the other end. UDP is an alternate transport that does not guarantee delivery. It is
widely used for real-time voice and video transmissions where erroneous packets are not retransmitted. IP
provides the routing mechanism. TCP/IP is a routable protocol, which means that all messages contain not
only the address of the destination station, but the address of a destination network. This allows TCP/IP
messages to be sent to multiple networks within an organization or around the world, hence its use in the
worldwide Internet. Every client and server in a TCP/IP network requires an IP address, which is either
permanently assigned or dynamically assigned at startup.
Telnet. A terminal emulation protocol commonly used on the Internet and TCP/IP-based networks. It allows a
user at a terminal or computer to log onto a remote device and run a program.
Terminal. See Wearable Terminal.
Terminal Emulation. A “terminal emulation” emulates a character-based mainframe session on a remote
non-mainframe terminal, including all display features, commands and function keys. The WT4090 Series
supports Terminal Emulations in 3270, 5250 and VT220.
TFTP. (Trivial File Transfer Protocol) A version of the TCP/IP FTP (File Transfer Protocol) protocol that has no
directory or password capability. It is the protocol used for upgrading firmware, downloading software and
remote booting of diskless devices.
Tolerance. Allowable deviation from the nominal bar or space width.
Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol. See TCP/IP.
Transport Layer Security (TLS). TLS is a protocol that ensures privacy between communicating applications
and their users on the Internet. When a server and client communicate, TLS ensures that no third party may
eavesdrop or tamper with any message. TLS is the successor to the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).
Trivial File Transfer Protocol. See TFTP.

U
UPC. Universal Product Code. A relatively complex numeric symbology. Each character consists of two bars
and two spaces, each of which is any of four widths. The standard symbology for retail food packages in the
United States.
UDP. User Datagram Protocol. A protocol within the IP protocol suite that is used in place of TCP when a reliable
delivery is not required. For example, UDP is used for real-time audio and video traffic where lost packets
are simply ignored, because there is no time to retransmit. If UDP is used and a reliable delivery is required,
packet sequence checking and error notification must be written into the applications.
U
