Profile(s) supported
SPP (Serial Port Profile), HID (Human Interface Device Profile)
Communications range (reference value*1)
Max. 10 m, with no obstructions
*1 This value is for wireless networking between the scanner and the BA11/10-RKU communications adapter. The
communications range varies with the equipment used and the operating environment.
Wireless networking requires a stable radio environment. Not all operating environments provide this. In particular,
note that
 Using the scanner in close proximity to other wireless LAN equipment operating in the same frequency band (2.4
GHz) risks radio interference that can reduce throughput or even entirely block wireless networking.
 Microwave ovens, industrial heating equipment, high-frequency medical equipment, and other equipment using the
2.4 GHz band can sometimes block wireless networking.
 Electromagnetic noise from computers, refrigerators, and other home appliances can sometimes block wireless
networking.
 The following environments can sometimes block wireless networking.
- Metal objects or particles in the vicinity
- Metal walls around the area
- Excessive vibration
 The communications range of 10 m given above is merely a reference value assuming a clear line of sight. Reliable
wireless networking is by no means guaranteed at 10 m for all combinations of equipment used and operating
environments. Some combinations might even work for greater distances, but be sure to confirm that the scanner
link operates properly before introducing the link operation.
NOTE: To System Designers:
 Before developing applications, make sure that the intended environment is free of the interference factors
above and thus actually capable of supporting link operation.
 When introducing the scanner into an environment where equipment using radio waves in the 2.4 GHz
band operates or when introducing such equipment after the introduction of the scanner, be sure to confirm
that the scanner radio link operates properly with all equipment being in operation beforehand.
 If the environment of the radio communications system is changed after the introduction (e.g., newly
installed household appliances and movement/addition of shelves or objects), then confirm that the radio
link operates properly again before the actual use.
viii
Care and Maintenance
■ Proper Care of the reading window
Dust or dirt accumulating on the clear plate of the code reading window will affect reading performance. If you use
the scanner in dusty areas, therefore, periodically check the clear plate and clean it if dusty.
 To clean the plate, first blow the dust away with an airbrush. Then wipe the plate with a cotton swab or the similar
soft one gently.
 If sand or hard particles have accumulated, never rub the plate; doing so will scratch or damage it. Blow the
particles away with an airbrush or a soft brush.
■ Proper Care of the Scanner body
Wipe any dirt from the Scanner body with a dry, soft cloth.
Note
• Never use substances such as benzene or alcohol, as this may cause the housing to be marred or paint to peel off.
• If excessively dirty, wipe a soft cloth that has been soaked in soapy water (always use neutral detergent) and wrung
out thoroughly.

Chapter 2
Bluetooth Interface
For terms relating to Bluetooth wireless communication in this manual, refer to Appendix 3 "Bluetooth Glossary."
2.1
Enabling Bluetooth Interface
Using the scanner for the first time requires scanning the "Start setting" and "Start operation" QR Code symbols given
in Section 12.2 with the procedure in Section 12.1. Using the scanner when the "End operation" is selected requires
scanning the "Start operation" QR Code symbol. Scanning those code symbols enables the Bluetooth interface.
Note: Always disable this scanner's Bluetooth interface in hospitals, aircraft, and other environments where the
Bluetooth radio waves (2400 to 2483.5 MHz, maximum 2.5 mW) present a potential safety risk.
This scanner interprets the "End operation" QR Code symbol as a command to disable the Bluetooth interface.
Note: When the scanner leaves the factory or it has scanned the "End operation" QR Code(in Section 13.2), it no
longer reads codes except the "Start operation" QR code, the " batch-process" QR code, and the barcode on the
reverse side of the Communications adapter (BA11/10-RKU).
2
2.2
Establishing Bluetooth Wireless Link
After enabling the Bluetooth interface, establish a Bluetooth wireless link between the scanner and the
BA11/10-RKU communications adapter (or some other Bluetooth equipment) using the following procedures. Both
devices have slave as their default configuration.
The scanner can configure itself as both a slave (default) and master. To configure it as a slave, use the QR-coded
parameter menu or configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D)*; to configure it as a master, it is necessary to specify
the slave's Bluetooth address to the scanner.
Tip: In addition to "As a master" and "As a slave" parameters, the configuration software provides a choice of "No
slave/master configuration change" (see page 68) that prevents the Bluetooth wireless link from getting broken when
you change other parameters with the configuration software or batch-process QR Code symbols (see Chapter 4).
Scanner as Slave (default)
The scanner is a slave by default. This slave can establish a Bluetooth wireless link with the BA11/10-RKU
communications adapter (or some other Bluetooth equipment) as a master without special communication
procedures.
(1) If the scanner is currently a master, use the scanner to read the "Configure as slave" QR Code symbol given in
Section 12.2 using the procedure in Section 12.1 to switch it to slave operation.
(2) Wait for the scanner to beep three times, press the scanner's trigger switch, and wait approximately two minutes
(default) for the master device to connect to this slave.
(3) Configure the communications adapter (or some other Bluetooth equipment) as a master and specify the
scanner's Bluetooth address.
For the communications adapter, use the configuration software (BASetting). (For other Bluetooth equipment,
use the procedures set forth in the user's manual.)
(4) Wait for the communications adapter (or some other Bluetooth equipment) to establish a Bluetooth wireless
link with the scanner as a slave.
(5) Wait for the scanner to beep twice and the indicator LED to turn green (for 0.5 second), indicating a successful
connection.
Note: If the master device cannot discover the scanner available in the vicinity, set the longer inquiry time and let
the master device search it again.
Note: In response to the connection request from the master device, the scanner unconditionally connects to it. No
Bluetooth passkey is required to specify.
* The configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) is available as free downloads from our website at
http://www.denso-wave.com/.
3
Scanner as Master
To configure the scanner as a master and the communications adapter (or some other Bluetooth equipment) as a slave,
follow the sample procedures given below and specify the slave's Bluetooth address to the scanner. The connection
ratio of the scanner and slave device should be 1:1.
Using the communications adapter (example)
(1) Use the scanner to read the bar code (communications adapter's Bluetooth address) on the back of the
communications adapter.
(2) Wait for the scanner to configure itself as a master and establish a Bluetooth wireless link with the
communications adapter.
(3) Wait for the scanner to beep twice and the indicator LED to turn green (for 0.5 second).
Using some other Bluetooth device (example)
(1) Confirm the device's Bluetooth address.
For the instructions on how to confirm, see the user's manual.
(2) With the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D)*, generate a "Bluetooth address" code that specifies the
equipment's Bluetooth address to the scanner.
When using a commercially available code generator, generate it in the following format.
Code type
Data format
QR Code Model 1, 2
%% ADDRXXXXXXXXXXXX %%
CODE 128 Code Set A
ADDRXXXXXXXXXXXX
(Note) XXXXXXXXXXXX should be a Bluetooth address in hexadecimal.
Example: Bluetooth address 000AF1234567
ADDR000AF1234567
(3) Use the scanner to read the "Bluetooth address" code.
(4) Wait for the scanner as a master to establish a Bluetooth wireless link with the specified Bluetooth device.
(5) Wait for the scanner to beep twice and the indicator LED to turn green (for 0.5 second), indicating a successful
connection.
Note: The scanner does not check the Bluetooth passkey when connecting to the slave device. If the slave device is so
set up that it asks for the Bluetooth passkey, therefore, modify the slave's setting to unconditionally connect to the master
device, using the procedures set forth in the user's manual.

Reading Codes
3.1 Before Use
Be sure to charge the battery cartridge loaded in the scanner with the dedicated charger before using the scanner for
the first time or after an extended period of disuse. (For the charging procedure, refer to Chapter 9.)
3.2 Operation Procedure
(1) Bring the reading window to a target code and press the trigger switch. The marker beam comes on, indicating the
scan range. Align the center of the marker beam with that of the target code.
(This step is not required for continuous reading modes 1, 2 and auto sensing mode.)

(2) Wait for the indicator LED to turn blue and the beeper to sound, indicating a successfully read.
Note: The actual scan range is narrower than the marker range. The scan range is approx. 6cm (2.4") wide by 4cm (1.6")
high when the scanning distance is approx. 10cm (3.9").
Note: The marker range should only be used as a guide. It does not assure that a code within the marker range can be read.
Note: Allow only a single code to come within the field of view except when the multi-line code scanning is allowed.
Having more than one code within the field of view either causes the read to fail or produces multiple input.
Note: The double-read prevention enabled time can be specified with the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D).
Note: The scanner can read codes omnidirectionally. Note that a target code plus its margin should lie within the scan
range.
Note: If the scanner fails to read due to specular effects or other factors, change the scanning angle of the reading window
or the distance from the codes, and repeat the process. (Specular effects occur when the reflection of the light from the
label surface is too strong, such as when the reflecting surface is polished or covered with vinyl.)

 Scanning mode
Regular read mode
This mode transfers the code data when the scanner has read the code successfully.
Data verification mode
This mode verifies the code data against the master data stored in the scanner.
(Refer to Section 6.1 for details.)
 Switching to sleep mode for power saving
The scanner switches from standby to sleep mode to save power when the trigger switch is off in the auto-off or
momentary switching mode or when the scanner is on standby in the alternate switching mode. (The scanner does not
switch to the sleep mode in the continuous reading mode 1 or 2 or in the auto sensing mode.)
The transition period from standby to sleep mode is 30 seconds in the ordinary current mode. In the power saving
mode (default), the scanner immediately switches to sleep mode. Only the configuration software
(ScannerSetting_2D) provides a choice of these two modes.
The scanner in sleep mode takes more time (approx. 100 ms) to start and complete a sequence of scanning operation
than the one on standby.
 Auto power-off
If the scanner remains unused for the specified timeout period, it automatically shuts itself down. The timeout period
can be specified within the range from 5 to 640 minutes in 5-minute increments by using the configuration software
(ScannerSetting_2D). The configuration software can also disable this auto power-off feature.
®
 Scanning with Bluetooth wireless link broken
The scanner can read codes even with the Bluetooth® wireless link being broken. Use this scanning way when
scanning codes is required but data transfer is not, for instance, when the scanner itself checks the verification result
without transferring it to the host computer.
Scanning with Bluetooth® wireless link broken and that with Bluetooth® wireless link established can be switched
only with the QR-coded parameter menu.
"Scan w/ Bluetooth link broken"
QR Code symbol
Allows the scanner to scan codes with the Bluetooth® wireless link
being broken. Scanning the QR Code symbol also disables the
Bluetooth® interface, making data transfer with the host computer
impossible.
Cancel "Scan w/ Bluetooth link broken"
QR Code symbol
Cancels the "Scan w/ Bluetooth® link broken" setting.
Scanning the QR Code symbol allows the scanner to scan codes
with the Bluetooth® wireless link being established. It also enables
the Bluetooth® interface, making data transfer with the host
computer possible.
Note: The "Scan w/ Bluetooth® link broken" parameter retains its setting even the scanner reads the "End operation" and
"Start operation" QR Code symbols in this order with the "Scan w/ Bluetooth® link broken" being selected. To cancel the
setting, you need to scan the "Cancel "Scan w/ Bluetooth link broken" QR Code symbol.

Chapter 4
Customizing the Scanner
You can customize the scanner by modifying communications, code type, and other scanner parameters with the
QR-coded parameter menu or the configuration software ScannerSetting_2D*. These parameters retain their settings
even when the power is off.
TIP: The scanner can hold not only its own parameter settings but also communications adapter parameter settings in
its memory and customize the communications adapter via the Bluetooth wireless link. There are two types of
bar-coded parameter menus available for scanners (Section 12.2) and communications adapters (Section 13.2).
(1) Scanning parameter setting QR Code symbols in the QR-coded parameter menu by pressing the trigger switch.
(The QR-coded parameter menus for scanners and communications adapters are given in Chapters 12 and 13,
respectively.)
(2) Using the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) in your computer. It is recommended that the scanner be
configured as a master.
(This software also offers batch-process QR Code symbols for ready by scanners in the field.)
Note: Customizing the scanner with the configuration software or batch-process QR Code symbols breaks the Bluetooth
wireless link, so it is necessary to establish the link again after customizing. To prevent the Bluetooth wireless link from
getting broken, select the "No slave/master configuration change" parameter for the item "Configure the scanner as master
or slave."
Note: When the "End operation" parameter is selected with the scanner, no parameter setting is possible. Prior to starting
parameter setting, therefore, be sure to scan the "Start operation" QR Code symbol. See Chapter 2 for the "Start
operation" and "End operation."
Note: When even the scanner is being charged, you can customize it with the configuration software except when the
"End operation" parameter is selected.
Note: The configuration software is not available via HID (Human Interface Device) Profile.
* The configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) is available as free downloads from our website at
http://www.denso-wave.com/.

Chapter 5
Scanning Control
Two types of scanning controls are available--Trigger switch control and Software control.
Trigger switch control: Pressing the trigger switch readies the scanner for scanning. (Refer to Section 5.1.)
Software control: Instead of pressing the trigger switch, you send control commands from the host computer via the
Bluetooth® interface to ready the scanner for scanning or put the scanner on standby. (Refer to Section 5.2.) The
software control is not available via HID (Human Interface Device) Profile.
In addition, the auto sensing mode is also available. (Refer to Sections 5.3 and 5.4.)
5.1
Trigger Switch Control
Pressing the trigger switch turns on the illumination LEDs and readies the scanner for scanning. The scanner supports
the following six trigger switch operating modes. Select the one that best meets your needs using the QR-coded
parameter menu or the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D).
(1) Auto-off mode
When the trigger switch is pressed, the scanner is brought to the Active state for approximately 5 seconds.
The scanner automatically returns to the Ready state when reading is successfully completed, or after approximately
five seconds elapsed with the trigger switch pressed.
The scanner goes to the Ready state if the trigger switch is released before five seconds elapses. (in the case of normal
mode)
When the Auto off mode is set to be active only once (One-shot mode), the time required for the scanner to become
the Ready state after the trigger switch was pressed shall be designated in the setting.
(2) Momentary switching mode
The scanner is brought to the Active state only when the trigger switch is pressed, and returns to the Ready state when
the trigger switch is released.
(3) Momentary switching mode (Reverse type)
The scanner is brought to the Ready state only when the trigger switch is pressed, and returns to the Active state when
the trigger switch is released.
(4) Alternate switching mode
The scanner alternates between the Active state and the Ready state every time the trigger switch is pressed.
(5) Continuous reading mode 1
Establishing the Bluetooth wireless link or selecting the "Scan w/ Bluetooth link broken" parameter, the scanner
lights the illumination LEDs and becomes ready to scan. The scanner ignores all trigger switch input.
If the scanner receives the Z, READOFF or LOFF command, it switches to standby; if it receives the R, READON or
LON command, it becomes ready to scan.
You can select whether or not the scanner transmits the ERROR command when the scanner cannot complete reading
and switches to standby, using the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D).
(6) Continuous reading mode 2
This mode is functionally equivalent to the continuous reading mode 1, except that the scanner waits for a command
upon completion of scanning. To become ready to scan, the scanner should receive the Z, READOFF or LOFF
command to switch to standby and then receive the R, READON or LON command.
You can select whether or not the scanner transmits the ERROR command when the scanner cannot complete
scanning and switches to standby, using the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D).
Note: When you are setting parameters using the QR-coded parameter menu, the scanner is always in the auto-off mode
regardless of the trigger switch operating mode selected.
Note: Establishing the Bluetooth wireless link or selecting the "Scan w/ Bluetooth link broken" parameter enables the
trigger switch control.
11
5.2
Software Control
You can control the scanner by sending scanning control commands from the host computer via the Bluetooth
interface, instead of pressing the trigger switch.
Scanning control commands include R, READON, LON, Z, READOFF and LOFF and are restricted by the trigger
switch operating modes, as listed below.

5.3
Auto Sensing Mode--Automatic detection of labels
After establishing the Bluetooth wireless link or selecting the "Scan w/ Bluetooth link broken" parameter, in the
Auto Sensing mode (Auto sense operation in Auto stand mode is included), bringing a code label within the scan
range of the reading window turns on the illumination LEDs and starts the scanner reading the code. No trigger switch
operation is required. Use this mode when the scanner is stationary to a stand and a code label is moved.
The illumination LEDs come on when you bring a code label within the designated range or move a code label within
the same range. These LEDs turn off when a code label is moved away from the range or stays within the range
without move for approx. 3 seconds.
In the Auto stand mode, after establishing the Bluetooth wireless link or selecting the "Scan w/ Bluetooth link
broken" parameter, the scanner is set to the Auto sense operation when the power is turned on.
If the trigger switch is pressed while the scanner is operating in this mode, the scanner goes to the Auto off and reads a
code whenever the trigger switch is pressed.
However, the scanner will automatically return to the Auto sense operation if the trigger switch is not pressed for
longer than a time specified for the scanner to return to the Auto sense.
The time for the scanner to return to the Auto sense operation from the Auto off operation can be selected with the
configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D).
Auto sensing mode and Auto stand mode are selected with the QR-coded parameter menu or the configuration software
(Scanner Setting_2D).
The scanner offers a choice of three sensitivity levels for responding to codes. Switch to a higher sensitivity level if
the illumination LEDs will not come on when a code is brought into the range, for example.
Note: Even if you do not bring a code label within the scan range, the illumination LEDs may come on when the ambient
level of light changes or any shadows move within the scan range.
Note: To enable the scanner to work properly in auto sensing mode, an ambient illuminance of at least 500 lx is required.

6.1
Scanning Functions
Data Verification Mode
The data verification mode verifies the code data read against the master data stored in the scanner and reports the
match status with data output.
Data verification read is available in two types--"n-point verification" and "2-point verification," which can be
selected with the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D).
Selecting the n-point verification requires registering master data only one time for 1:n verification. The scanner
verifies all code data read after registration against the master data.
The 2-point verification refers to 1:1 verification. Selecting it requires registering master data each time preceding
code scanning. After registration of master data, the scanner reads a code, verifies the code data read against the
master data and then becomes ready to register new master data. This way, the 2-point verification read alternately
repeats master data registration and code scanning.
In n-point verification read, master data can be registered with "preset master registration" or "scan master
registration"; in 2-point verification read, with "scan master registration" only. The preset master registration registers
master data with the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) beforehand, and the scan master registration, by
scanning a master code label.
The master data registered by "preset master registration" or "scan master registration" will be sent to the host
computer when you scan the "Output master data" code given on page 16.
The verification parameters can be specified with the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D).
6.1.1 Data verification read procedure
 n-point verification
Preset master registration
This is available only when n-point verification is selected. Register the code type and data to be used for verification
using the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). Up to 99 digits can be registered.
The registered master data will be preserved even if the scanner is turned off. To clear it, first clear the registered
master data stored in the host computer with the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) and then send the new
setting data to the scanner.
Scan master registration
1) Switch the scanner to the Data Verification mode.
2) Send a scan entry control command "E" from the host to the scanner. (Refer to Appendix 2 for control commands.)
The indicator LED lights in green.
3) Use the scanner to scan a master code to be registered. (The scanner operates in the trigger switch operating mode
currently set.) After registration of master data, the indicator LED turns blue and then goes OFF.
4) Use the scanner to scan a target code. The scanner verifies the code read against the master data registered and
then outputs the result. After a successful read, the indicator LED lights in blue.
During the registration operation above, if the master data has fewer characters than specified (e.g., less than the
specified verification start position), the registration operation aborts with an error.
Even if "Preset master registration" has been made, you can make "Scan master registration." If both have been made,
the number of characters to verify that has been specified with "Preset master registration" and the master data that has
been specified with "Scan master registration" will be valid.
Note: The registered master data will be cleared when you customize the scanner by modifying the parameters with
the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) or a batch-process QR code symbol.
Note: If no master data has been entered by either "Preset master registration" or "Scan master registration," the
indicator LED flashes in red, during which it is impossible to scan codes.
13
 2-point verification
Scan master registration
1) Switch the scanner to the data verification mode. The indicator LED lights in green.
2) Use the scanner to scan a master code to be registered. (The scanner operates in the trigger switch operating mode
currently set.) After the registration of master data, the indicator LED turns blue and then goes OFF.
3) Use the scanner to scan a target code. The scanner verifies the code read against the master data registered and
then outputs the result.
After a successful read, the indicator LED lights in blue, indicating that the scanner is ready to register new master
data.
During the registration procedure above, if the master data has fewer characters than specified (e.g., less than the
specified verification start position), the registration operation aborts with an error. The scanner becomes ready to
register master data again.
Verification retry after mismatch in 2-point verification
The 2-point verification read provides the "Verification retry after mismatch" option that retries verification against
the same master data. Enabling this option with the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) readies the scanner
not for registering new master data but for reading a bar code again if the verification result is a mismatch.
Disabling this option readies the scanner for registering new master data after bar code reading, no matter what the
verification result is.
Note: Any of the following events clears the master data stored in the scanner.
- Turning the scanner power off.
- Modifying the verification start position or the number of characters to verify.
- Customizing the scanner by modifying the parameters with the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) or
by scanning a batch-process OR code symbol.
Note: The data verification area can be selected from "Code type + code data" or "Code data only" with the
configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D).
14
6.1.2 Specifying a verification object
You can specify two types of verification objects--data string and data block. For data string verification, specify the
verification start position and the number of characters to be verified. For data block verification, specify one of the
data blocks delimited by commas in the CSV format.
(1) Data string verification
The scanner verifies data specified by the verification start position and the number of characters to be verified against
the master data registered in the scanner, and then it outputs the verification result.
The verification start position should be within the range of 1 to 999, and the number of characters* to be verified,
within the range of 1 to 99.
*The number of characters for Code 39 and NW-7 symbols should be specified including start and stop codes.
In any of the following cases, the verification results in a mismatch:
1) The verification data in the specified position does not match the master data.
2) The code type which the verification data belongs to is different from the one which the master data belongs to.
See (Note) below.
3) All data specified is not included or no data is included within the specified range.

(2) Data block verification
If data is saved in the comma-delimited CSV format, the scanner verifies data in the specified data block against the
master data registered in the scanner, and then outputs the verification result.
The data block position should be within the range of 1 to 99.
In any of the following cases, the verification results in a mismatch:
1) The verification data in the specified block does not match the master data.
2) The code type which the verification data belongs to is different from the one which the master data belongs to.
See (Note) below.
3) All data specified is not included or no data is included within the specified block.
4) The data block to be verified exceeds 99 characters in length.

6.2
Editing Data
You can edit and output code data read, in any of the four data edit modes--"data extraction mode," "data substitution
mode," "data blocksorting mode" and "ADF script mode." These data edit modes can be selected with the
configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). The default is "No editing."
Note: In the case of multi-line bar codes, unless all code ID marks read are matched, the data editing processing will
result in an error regardless of whether or not the data read contains any error. Whether the code ID mark is matched is
determined not by the combination of code ID marks but by Type 1 only (refer to Chapter 8, Section 8.2).
Note: In the case of split QR Code, the scanner in edit mode or batch edit mode performs data editing processing upon
completion of scanning of all split code symbols; in non-edit mode, it performs each time a single split code symbol is
read.
6.2.1 Data extraction mode
This mode offers three extraction choices--"data string," "data block" and "AI (Application Identifier)-prefixed string"
extractions from code data read and then outputs it.
The "data block" extraction is available only when code data is in the comma-delimited CSV format. The "AI-prefixed
string" extraction is available for GS1-128 (EAN-128), GS1 DataBar (RSS), and EAN.UCC Composite symbols
(excluding linear components in a UPC/EAN Composite symbol).
6.2.1.1 Extracting a data string
The scanner extracts a data string specified by the "Extraction start position" and "Extraction end position" from a
code specified by the "Code type" and then outputs it in the data transmission format selected in the scanner (see
Chapter 8, Section 8.2). The extraction conditions and extraction start and end positions are listed below.

6.2.1.3 Extracting AI (Application Identifier)-prefixed strings
If the scanner reads any of GS1-128 (EAN-128), GS1 DataBar (RSS), and EAN.UCC Composite symbols (excluding
linear components in a UPC/EAN Composite symbol), it edits the data according to AIs and outputs it in the data
transmission format selected in the scanner (see Chapter 8, Section 8.2).
The "AI-prefixed string" extraction is available in two modes--AI-delimited mode and AI parenthesizing mode. AIs to
be used for data editing are listed in (3) AI table later.
(1) AI-delimited mode
In this mode, the scanner extracts strings prefixed with AIs specified (up to three types of AIs) and separates them
with the specified delimiters (selectable from headers/terminators, commas and tabs) instead of AIs to output them.
 Extraction conditions
Extraction conditions
"Data transfer regardless of error result"
Choices
Permit/Prohibit
If the scanner fails to extract an AI-prefixed string when the "Data transfer regardless of error result" is permitted, it
outputs the data read as is without editing.
 Delimiters
Delimiters can be any of the following three--header/terminator, comma and tab.
  Header/terminator
Specifying a header/terminator as delimiters prefixes a header and suffixes a terminator to each element string
separated.
A scanner ID, code ID mark, the number of digits, prefix, and suffix can be also added to each element string if
their transmissions are enabled. The number of digits is the count of each element string edited.
Example Data read: (01)94901234567894(11)030808(13)030810

  Comma
Specifying a comma as delimiters outputs comma-delimited data. No comma follows the tail of the data.
A header and terminator are added to the full string. None of a scanner ID, code ID mark, the number of digits,
prefix, and suffix is added even if their transmissions are enabled.
Example Data read: (01)94901234567894(11)030808(13)030810

  Tab (ASCII 09H (HT))
Specifying a tab as delimiters outputs tab-delimited data. No tab follows the tail of the data.
A header and terminator are added to the full string. None of a scanner ID, code ID mark, the number of digits,
prefix, and suffix is added even if their transmissions are enabled.

(Note 1) Element strings will be output in the order of AIs specified.
(Note 2) If data read contains two or more element strings prefixed with the same AI, those element strings will be output in
the order arranged in that data read.
(Note 3) If data read does not contain a string prefixed with the specified AI or it contains such data but its number of digits
is more or less than the one defined for that AI, an error will result when the "Data transfer regardless of error

6.2.4 ADF script mode
The ADF script refers to a simple program language designed for editing of data read. It enables the following
functions.
(1) Extracting data that is fixed or variable in length
(2) Supporting Application Identifiers (AIs) in GS1-128 (EAN-128), GS1 DataBar (RSS) and EAN.UCC Composite
symbols
(3) Sorting data blocks into the specified order
(4) Collating data for verification
(5) Outputting same data repeatedly
(6) Performing four arithmetic operations including residue calculation, e.g., transformation of units
(7) Substituting data
(8) Comparing character strings
(9) Driving indicator LED and beeper
The ADF script mode can be programmed with the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). To configure the
scanner with the ADF script, transfer the script to the scanner or generate an ADF script QR code symbol with the
configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) and use the scanner to read the symbol.
For the specifications and instructions for use of the ADF script, refer to the ADF Script User's Guide.
Note: The GTIN format conversion and ADF script mode cannot be used together with any of other edit modes (data
extraction mode, data substitution mode, and data blocksorting mode).
31
6.3
Point Scan Mode
In the point scan mode, you can aim at a target code by matching up the center spot of the marker beam with that code.
If there is no code at that center spot or the scanner cannot detect the marker beam due to high levels of ambient
lighting, the scanner cannot read anything. The point scan mode takes effect only when the marker is permitted to
light.
6.4
Scanning a Mirror Image 2D Code
If you enable the mirror image scanning with the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D), the scanner can scan a
mirror image 2D code as well as a normal image. Note that when the mirror image scanning is enabled, the time
required for scanning may increase.
6.5
Scanning a Black-and-white Inverted Code
The scanner usually scans a black-and-white normal code (black cells/bars on a white background). You can switch
the scanner to scan a black-and-white inverted code (white cells/bars on a black background) or to scan both types of
codes while automatically identifying them, using the QR-coded parameter menu or the configuration software
(ScannerSetting_2D).
Note that the automatic detection scanning may take more time than normal code or inverted code scanning.
A black-and-white inverted code requires a black quiet zone of more than the number of cells defined in the code
specifications.
32
6.6
Scanning Structured Appended QR (iQR) Code Symbols
QR Code symbology can split data into a maximum of 16 blocks and encode each of them into a Structured Appended
QR Code symbol (model 1 or 2) or Structured Appended iQR Code symbol. Structured Appended Code scanning is
possible only with the same Code model.
The scanner can scan Structured Appended Code symbols and restore them to the original data string in edit mode,
batch edit mode, and non-edit mode, which you can select using the QR-coded parameter menu or configuration
software (ScannerSetting_2D).
Edit mode
The scanner accumulates and edits Structured Appended Code symbols read and then sends the edited data to the host
computer. If the total data volume of Structured Appended Code symbols exceeds 8 kilobytes, a read error will result
and the accumulated data will be discarded.
Batch edit mode (for QR Code Model 1 and Model 2 only)
If all the Structured Appended Code symbol which is split in less than four to be scanned lie within the readable area,
the scanner reads them all once and then edits and sends them to the host computer.
Non-edit mode
Each time a single split Code symbol is read, the scanner sends the data read to the host computer.
When scanning Structured Appended Code symbols, the scanner beeps in a different way from usual. That is, when
the scanner reads the first split code, it beeps twice and enters the Structured Appended Code scanning mode. When
the scanner completes the sequence of scanning, it beeps three times.
Note: If you scan any non-split QR(iQR) Code symbol or a code other than a QR(iQR) Code symbol midway through a
sequence of Structured Appended Code scanning, the scanner cancels the Structured Appended Code scanning, discards
the Structured Appended Code data already scanned, and sends the code scanned last.
Note: If the scanner switches to standby in the Auto-off mode (after approx. 5 seconds of holding down the trigger switch
or by releasing the trigger switch within 5 seconds) or the Structured Appended Code scanning interval exceeds approx. 3
seconds in any trigger switch operating mode except Auto-off mode, then the scanner discards the data scanned and
cancels the Structured Appended Code scanning sequence.
Note: If you scan a Structured Appended Code symbol of any other Code before completion of the current scanning
sequence, the scanner discards the data already scanned and starts a new scanning sequence.
33
6.7
Multi-line Barcode Scanning
The scanner can scan up to 3 lines of bar codes in the readable area at any one time. You can specify the number of
lines to be scanned, the data output order and output format using the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D).*
6.7.1 Number of lines
The number of lines allowed for multi-line barcode scanning is 2 or 3. This setting is essential.
6.7.2 Data output order
You can specify the data output order by designating code types*1, heading characters*2, or the number of digits to be
scanned*3.
*1 Code types should be selected from readable bar codes you enable. This setting is essential.
*2 Up to two heading characters can be specified. If a question mark (?) is specified, it acts as a wild card. This setting
can be omitted.
*3 The number of digits to be scanned varies depending upon the code type. This setting is essential.
Note: The number of characters for Code 39 symbols should be specified including start and stop codes.
6.7.3 Output format
You can select either the header/terminator- or comma-delimited output format.
(1) Header/terminator-delimited output format
Specifying this format allows the scanner to output multiple lines of barcode data in succession in the data
transmission format selected (see Section 8.2) so that the headers and terminators act as delimiters. For UPC and EAN
codes, the number of digits will be omitted.
(2) Comma-delimited output format
Specifying this format allows the scanner to output multiple lines of barcode data delimited with commas in the data
transmission format selected (see Section 8.2). Note that the scanner outputs the code ID mark specified for the first
line barcode and the number of digits including the delimiter commas. The number of digits will not be omitted even
for UPC and EAN codes.
Note 1: Bar code types specified for multi-line barcode scanning cannot be read individually.
Note 2: The scanner cannot read multi-line barcodes of UPC/EAN with add-on.
Note 3: If linear components in a UPC/EAN Composite symbol are specified for multi-line barcode scanning,
EAN.UCC Composite symbols including the specified linear components cannot be read.
6.8
Scanning an SQRC (Security QR Code) Symbol
An SQRC symbol refers to a security QR Code symbol that consists of public and nonpublic data. The nonpublic data
can be read only when the encryption key configured in the scanner matches the one in the SQRC symbol.
To read an SQRC symbol with the scanner, it is necessary to enable SQRC scanning ("SQRC symbols only" or "both
SQRC symbols and QR Code symbols") using the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). The following SQRC
related parameters can be also specified--"Data transmission after match of encryption key," and "Data transmission
after mismatch of encryption key."
Note: SQRC scanning requires configuring an encryption key beforehand with the SQRC configuration software
(SQRC Setting) separately prepared.

Beeper, Indicator LED, Marker Beam, and Illumination LEDs
Beeper
(1) Beeping
The scanner emits a short or long beeps, once or a couple of times as described below.
The beeper emits a short beep when:
- the scanner has read a code successfully,
- code data read matches the master data in the data verification mode,(2-point:2 beeps, n-point:1 beep)
- the scanner has read a Structured Appended QR (iQR) Code symbol,
- the "Start setting" or "End setting" code is read (3 beeps) or the parameter setting QR Code symbols are read (1
beep) from the QR-coded parameter menu (given in Chapter 12),
- the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) starts up or accepts new settings (3 beeps), or
- the scanner has read a batch-process QR Code symbol generated with the configuration software
(ScannerSetting_2D) (3 beeps).
- a Bluetooth® wireless link is established, or
- the charge of the battery cartridge has lowered, turning the scanner off (5 beeps, slightly longer).
The beeper emits a long beep when:
- code data read does not match the master data in the data verification mode,
- the scanner has read Structured Appended QR (iQR) Code symbols in edit mode and the accumulated data exceeds 8
kilobytes,
- a master code has the wrong number of digits during registration of master data,
- a code other than a parameter setting code is read during parameter setting by the QR-coded parameter menu,
- a transmission error or timeout occurred when the scanner was communicating with the configuration software
(ScannerSetting_2D),
- the encryption key of data read does not match the one configured in the scanner in SQRC scanning (when the "data
transmission after mismatch of encryption key" is disabled),
- a communications error has occurred, or
- an invalid control command is received.
- a Bluetooth® wireless link is broken,
- transfer of communications adapter parameter settings is ended normally (1 beep) or abnormally (3 beeps), or
- the scanner has failed to save the parameter settings entered with the QR-coded parameter menu or the configuration
software.
When the scanner is turned on, the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) provides a choice of beeper ON/OFF
(default: ON), but does not provide a choice of beeper tone.
You can disable the beeper using the QR-coded parameter menu or configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D)*. In
any of the following cases, however, the beeper sounds regardless of that beeper setting:
- when you make settings by scanning the QR-coded parameter menu,
- when the scanner receives a beeper-ON command from the host computer,
- when the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) starts up or any setting you have made is established,
- when the scanner reads a batch-process QR Code symbol, and
- when the parameter values are saved by a PW command (refer to Appendix 2).
- when the Bluetooth wireless link is established or broken,
- when the charge of the battery cartridge has lowered,
-when the scanner has failed to save the parameter settings, or
-when transfer of communications adapter parameter settings is normally ended.
35
(2) Adjusting the beeper volume
You can adjust the beeper volume to three levels--high, medium and low--using the QR-coded parameter menu or
configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). The factory default is High.
Note: Enabling the Bluetooth interface with the "Start operation" QR Code symbol allows the beeper volume
adjustment.
Each time the "Beeper volume" QR Code symbol is read, the beeper volume cycles as shown below. The factory
default is High.
High
Medium
Low
Even if the scanner is turned off, this setting will be retained.
36
7.2
Indicator LED
The indicator LED lights or flashes in blue, green, red or orange as described below.
The indicator LED lights in blue when:
- the scanner has read a code successfully,
- the scanner has read a Structured Appended QR (iQR) Code symbol,
- code data read matches the master data in the data verification mode, or
- master data has been successfully registered in the data verification mode.
The indicator LED lights in green when:
- the scanner is ready to register master data.
The indicator LED lights in red when:

7.3
Marker Beam
The red marker beam (semiconductor laser) comes on to indicate the scanning area as a guide.
The marker provides a choice of the three modes--normal marker mode, marker-OFF mode and marker-ON mode that
can be selected by using the QR-coded parameter menu or the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D).
(1) Normal marker mode
When the trigger switch is in Auto-off mode or auto-off of the Auto stand mode:
When the scanner is ready to scan (that is, within approx. 5 seconds from the depression of the trigger switch or until
completion of reading from that), the marker beam remains on. If you release the trigger switch when the scanner is
ready, the marker beam will go off.
When the trigger switch is in Momentary switching mode or Alternate switching mode:
In the momentary switching mode, holding down the trigger switch turns on the marker beam.
When the scanner is ready to scan (that is, while the trigger switch is held down in the momentary switching mode or
when the scanner is ready to scan in the alternate switching mode), the marker beam remains on. When the scanner is
on standby (that is, the trigger switch is released in the momentary switching mode or when the scanner is on standby
in the alternate switching mode), the marker beam will go off.
When the trigger switch is in Momentary switching mode (Reverse Type):
In the momentary switching mode (Reverse Type), the marker beam remains on while the trigger switch is in the
released position.
When the scanner is ready to scan (that is, the trigger switch is released in the momentary switching mode reverse
type), the marker beam remains on. When the scanner is on standby (that is, while the trigger switch is held down in
the momentary switching mode reverse type), the marker beam will go off.
When the trigger switch is in Continuous reading mode 1 or 2:
Turning the scanner on activates the marker and keeps it on.
If the scanner receives the Z, READOFF or LOFF command, it turns off the marker beam; if it receives the R,
READON or LON command, it keeps the marker beam on.
When the trigger switch is in Auto sensing mode or auto sense state of the Auto stand mode:
When the scanner senses a code coming into the readable area and becomes ready to scan, it automatically turns on the
marker beam. After approx. 3 seconds from completion of scanning or if scanning is not completed within approx. 3
seconds, the scanner switches to standby and turns off the marker beam.
(2) Marker-OFF mode
The marker beam will not come on under any conditions.
(3) Marker-ON mode
When the scanner switches to standby, the marker beam is turned on for approx. 30 seconds.
When it is ready to scan, the marker beam remains on.
7.4
Illumination LEDs
When the scanner is ready to scan, the illumination LEDs are turned on.
The illumination LEDs provide the two choices--ON, OFF by using the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D).
Enable or disable of “Power save mode” can be selected. The default setting is “Enable”.
When “Power save mode” is enabled, 20% power consumption is saved by less brightness of the illumination LEDs.
(Note) When “Power save mode” is enabled, a reading distance may be shorter under 500 lx ambient illumination.

Chapter 8
8.1
Communication
Bluetooth Interface
The QR-coded parameter menu and the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) provide a choice of various
communications conditions. Under the communications conditions you choose, code data read can be transferred to
the external equipment or computer.
(1) Communications protocol
When the scanner is in SPP profile, you can select either non-acknowledge mode, ACK/NAK mode, or data
packaging mode.
Non-acknowledge mode (default)
The scanner transfers code data read, regardless of the CTS signal level.
ACK/NAK mode
The scanner transfers code data read, regardless of the CTS signal level. After that, however, it waits for the response
from the host and processes it. The configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) only provides ACK/NAK timeout
settings from 100 ms to 9.9 s in 100 ms increments.
ACK: Normal end
NAK: Retransfer
Data packaging mode
- To host
The scanner wraps the code data in a packet with a CRC for transfer to a commercially available Bluetooth device or
other equipment. For further details, see Section 8.4.
(2)Timeout period for slave to wait for a connection request
The scanner, as a slave, waits for a connection request from the master for the specified timeout period--2 (default), 4,
10, or 30 minutes.
If the scanner cannot receive a connection request from the master within the specified timeout period, it switches to
standby, the same status as the Bluetooth wireless link has been broken.
40
8.2
HID Profile
The scanner supports the Human Interface Device Profile (HID) that enables connecting to an iPhone or iPad
equipped with Bluetooth module that is compatible with Bluetooth® Specification Ver. 2.1+EDR.
(1) CAPS Lock state
Select the CAPS Lock ON or OFF to match the state of the host computer. (Default: CAPS Lock OFF)
(2) Keyboard type
Select the type of the connected keyboard. (Default: Type 106, Japanese)
(3) Numeric data transmission format
Select the “inboard numeric keys” or “numeric keyboard” on the connected keyboard. (Default: Inboard numeric
keys)
(4) Binary data conversion
Select the conversion type to be applied to data read, from the following:
・”No conversion”(ASCII) (default) : Outputs 00h to 7Fh data in ASCII format bytewise. Selecting this parameter
does not output 80h to FFh data. Scanning operation is completed, when data
is 80h to FFh.
・"Binary conversion"
:Converts 00h to FFh data to binary format bytewise.and outputs it.
・"Kanji conversion"
:Converts 00h to FFh data to Shift-JIS format and outputs it, two bytes at a
time. If there is any data to which this Kanji conversion cannot apply, it
converts such data to binary format bytewise and outputs it instead.
8140 to 9FFC、E040 to EFFC are allocated for Kanji
e.g.) When scanning code data is “Kanji”,

numerals.
(3) Prefix/Suffix
A prefix or suffix consists of up to eight ASCII characters (00h to FFh). You can set a prefix or suffix with the
configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). (Default: No prefix or suffix)
(4) BCC
The Block Character Check (BCC) exclusive-ORs all bits at the same bit level in characters following the header and
preceding the terminator in a transmission block to generate a horizontal parity byte to be transferred in a binary code.
The BCC can be enabled or disabled. If no header is prefixed or the USB keyboard interface is selected, no BCC will
be transferred.

GTIN Format Conversion
Enabling the GTIN (Global Trade Item Number) format conversion allows UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-13, EAN-8, and
Interleaved 2of5 (14-digit) data to output in the GTIN format. It also allows GS1 DataBar (RSS) and GS1-128
(EAN-128) data in the GTIN format to output in the EAN format (product code format).
Note: Under any of the following conditions, the GTIN format conversion is invalid.
- In scanning bar code types specified for multi-line barcode scanning
- In any of the data edit modes (data extraction mode, data substitution mode, data blocksorting mode, and ADF script
mode)
(1) Conversion from UPC/EAN/Interleaved 2of5 (14-digit) to GTIN format
Conversion provides two choices--16- and 14-digit GTIN formats. The former adds the Application Identifier (AI)
"01" and Package Indicator PI as a prefix, and the latter, a PI only.
If the GTIN format conversion is enabled, however, the output formats available for UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-13, and
EAN8 do not apply.

the EAN format if the conversion is enabled. The conversion provides two choices--13- or 14-digit EAN formats. The
former trims the Application Identifier (AI) “01” and Package Indicator PI, and the latter, a PI only.

Data Packaging (Packetizing)
Data packaging is available to boost the reliability of data transfers over the Bluetooth wireless link from the scanner
to commercially available Bluetooth device, or other target device.
Data packaging wraps the transfer data in packets with the following format. After sending a packet, the scanner waits
for a response from the target device. ACK indicates a successful transfer; NAK represents a request to resend.
The scanner configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) provides ACK/NAK timeout settings from 100 to 9900 ms
in 100 ms intervals.
If there is no response within the specified time limit, the scanner sounds the error beep to indicate that the data
transfer was unsuccessful. The scanner cannot read in a new code while it is waiting for a response.
This functionality provides a scanner operator working some distance from the host with better information as to
whether the transfer data has been correctly transmitted to the host. Note, however, that wireless communications are
such that the scanner can sometimes fail to receive ACK (or NAK) responses even when the data has been correctly
transmitted. It is therefore important to use the scanner in an environment supporting stable wireless communications.

The following describes each field in detail.
(1) Header (2 bytes)
This data sequence indicates the start of data packaging (packetizing).
(2) Number of data bytes (2 bytes)
This specifies the number of data bytes in the packet. This number includes everything from the header to the
terminator.
(3) Container number (1 bytes)
Upper 4bit : transmission number, Under 4bit : All transmission numbers
(4) Spare (1 bytes)
This field is for future expansion. The value is currently fixed at 00h.
(5) Transfer data
This is the data before packetized.
(6) CRC (2 bytes)
This 16-bit CRC is calculated from the "Number of data bytes" through "Transfer data" using the CCITT CRC
polynomial x16+x12+x5+1. The two bytes appear in little-endian order: LSB first, MSB second.
(7) Terminator (2 bytes)
This data sequence indicates the end of data packaging (packetizing).
Note: If DLE (10h) is contained in the data anywhere else other than in the header or terminator, it will be preceded
by another DLE in data transfer. If the connection target is other than the communications adapter in data packaging, it
is necessary to delete the added DLE in CRC calculation or data retrieval.

(2) Compare CRCs.
1) Initialize CRC to 0.
2) Retrieve the first data byte (00h).
3) Shift the current CRC value one bit to the left. If the shift produces overflow, XOR the result with 1021h.
4) Shift the data byte one bit to the left. If the shift produces overflow, XOR the current CRC value with 0001h.
5) Repeat steps 3) and 4) a total of 8 times.
6) Retrieve the second data byte (13h).
7) Repeat steps 3) and 4) a total of 8 times.
8) Repeat this calculation through to the final byte.
9) Finally repeat the calculation for the two bytes (C4h 18h) in the CRC storage area, but reverse them first
because the 16-bit CRC is stored in little-endian order.

Image Capturing
10.1 Outline
The scanner supports image capturing that allows you to capture a graphic as a bitmap (BMP) or JPEG image and
output it to the host computer. The JPEG image offers three quality choices--standard, high, and low.
The image size can be selected from standard WVGA, 1/4 WVGA and 1/16 WVGA. If you select 1/4 WVGA or 1/16
WVGA, select also the output image area--the full image area or the center portion of the image area. When the full
image area is selected, the scanner thins out the resolution of the full image area by skipping every other pixel so that
the image quality becomes low; when the center portion is selected, the scanner extracts the center portion of the
image area so that the visual area becomes smaller but the image quality does not change.
The scanner can also output a thumbnail to help you aim at a target. The thumbnail images can be saved as a BMP or
JPEG image in 1/64 WVGA or 1/4 WVGA, respectively.
You can select the output format, image size, output image area and whether or not to use a thumbnail by modifying
the parameters of the IMAGEOUT command.
Note: Selecting the HID profile disables the image capturing function.

(5) Image capturing operation
1) Upon receipt of an IMAGEOUT command, the scanner captures an image, beeps three times, and switches to the
image transmission mode (Xmodem 1K protocol).
2) When the thumbnail is enabled:
The scanner transmits a thumbnail (BMP file in 1/64 WVGA or JPEG file in 1/4 WVGA) repeatedly.
Pressing the trigger switch causes the scanner to beep once, capture an image, and start transmission (Xmodem 1K
protocol).
When the thumbnail is disabled:
The scanner immediately captures an image and transmits it in the format specified by IMAGEOUT parameters
(Xmodem 1K protocol).
3) Upon completion of transmission, the scanner beeps once and exits the image transmission mode.
(6) Notes
 Image transmission can only be command-controlled; it cannot be started by the QR-coded parameter menu.
 When the scanner is in the image transmission mode, it cannot scan bar codes or 2D codes. The protocol is fixed to
the Xmodem 1K.
 Parameters of the IMAGEOUT command should be uppercase or numerical ASCII characters.
 Transmission condition settings such as header, terminator and transmission speed for the image transmission are
the same as those for ordinary commands.
 Transmission speed and other conditions when the Xmodem 1K protocol is used are the same as those with the
normal communications protocol (non-acknowledge mode or ACK/NAK mode).
 Upon completion of image transmission, the scanner returns to the normal communications protocol
(non-acknowledge mode or ACK/NAK mode).
 In a JPEG file format, images are compression-converted, so the image quality may be lower.

QR-Coded Parameter Menu for Communications Adapters
(BA11/10-RKU)
13.1 Customizing the Communications Adapter from the Scanner
The scanner can customize the communications adapter by scanning the QR-coded parameter menu for
communications adapters and transferring their settings held in the scanner memory via the Bluetooth wireless link
using the following procedure.
Use the scanner to scan the QR-coded parameter menu designed for communications
adapters (Section 13.2) to store their parameter settings into the scanner memory.
Scanner
Store the communications
adapter parameter settings
in the scanner memory.


Communications adapter
Power the
communications adapter.

Switch to the setup mode.
Note: Any type of interfaces that power the communications adapter can be used,
regardless of the interface setting made in the adapter. For the interfacing procedure,
refer to the "Communications Adapter User's Manual," Chapter 2.
Hold down the SETUP button provided on the bottom of the communications adapter
for at least 0.5 second with a pin or the like to switch to the setup mode.
Note: Leaving the communications adapter for 3 minutes or more after depression of
the SETUP button automatically exits the setup mode.

Tip: Using the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) designed for scanners
also allows parameter settings for communications adapters. It, however, requires
connecting the adapter via a USB-COM or RS-232C interface to the host computer.
For details, refer to the "Communications Adapter User's Manual."
Use the scanner holding communications adapter parameter settings to scan the bar
code printed on the bottom of the communications adapter.


After establishment of the Bluetooth wireless link, the scanner inquires of the
communications adapter about the current status and transfers the communications
adapter parameter settings stored in the memory.
Note: If the scanner cannot receive an acknowledge response from the
communications adapter, it cancels the parameter setting sequence. Both the scanner
and communications adapter automatically return to standby for initiation of a
Bluetooth wireless link.

Control Commands
Control commands refer to commands that are exchanged between the host computer and the scanner via the
communications line.
Some of the control commands that the host computer issues are functionally equivalent to some parameters that can
be set with the QR-coded parameter menu (refer to Chapter 11). Control command settings have priority over settings
made with the QR-coded parameter menu.
Note that turning off the scanner will clear control command settings so that settings made with the QR-coded
parameter menu will take effect unless the PW command is sent to the scanner for saving control command settings
into the FLASH ROM.
If commands other than ones listed below are sent to the scanner, the scanner operation is not assured.
Note: Until the completion of execution of a specified control command, the subsequent command will not be
executed.

Sound the beeper
Within 100 ms from the receipt of any of B1, B2 and B3 commands,
the scanner beeps for the period specified below.
B1: Beep for approx. 60, 80 or 120 ms once. Beeps for approx. 70
ms twice.
B2: Beep for approx. 120 ms
B3: Beep for approx. 240 ms
Even if the beeping is prohibited or the scanner is on standby, the
beeper will be able to sound.
Specifies the beeper tone.
Adding this command to B1, B2 and B3 commands allows the
scanner to beep at the specified frequency.
H: High (2.9 kHz)
M: Medium (2.7 kHz)
L: Low (2.5 kHz)
Light the blue indicator LED
Within 100 ms from the receipt of the LB command, the blue
indicator LED lights for approx. 500 ms.

PW
(Note 5)
Save parameters
This command saves settings made with U1 through U7
commands into the EEPROM. Without the PW command, the
scanner will lose settings made with U1 through U7 when it is
turned off.
Request for software version
<Response from the scanner> Ver.n.nn
where n.nn is version number (Ex. Ver.1.00)
VER
Request for the parameter setting version
This command checks the version of the parameter settings made
in the scanner when the scanner is linked with the configuration
software (ScannerSetting_2D).
VERF
<Response from the scanner> Ver.n.nn.mm
where n.nn.mm is version number (Ex. Ver.1.00.00)
and mm is parameter setting version.
Request for scan entry mode
In scan master registration for n-point verification, switching the
scanner to the data verification mode, sending a scan entry
control command "E" from the host, and scanning a master code
with the scanner registers the master data which is saved in the
FLASH ROM.
E
Request for scanner ID (serial number)
<Response from the scanner> ID.nnnnnn
where nnnnnn is a serial number (Ex. ID.000001)

ERROR
Scanning failure
When the scanner (which is ready to scan) cannot complete
scanning and switches to standby, it sends the ERROR command
as long as the trigger switch control is set to continuous reading
mode 1 or 2. Whether or not to send this command can be
selected.

Commands

OK
Verification match
If code data scanned matches master data in data verification
mode, the scanner sends this command as long as the OK
transmission is enabled for a match.
NG
Verification mismatch
If code data scanned does not match master data in data
verification mode, the scanner sends this command as long as the
NG transmission is enabled for a mismatch.
(Note 1) If the scanner receives the R command twice with the reading window being applied to a code (for example,
it receives the R command, sends the code data read, and receives the Z and R commands), it will send even the same
code data twice. This is because the Z command cancels the duplication prevention processing.
In split QR Code scanning operation, if the scanner receives the Z command and switches to standby before scanning
a set of split QR Code symbols, the duplication prevention processing will be canceled. The code data that has been
read halfway will be discarded.
The READOFF and LOFF commands produce the same result as the Z command, the READON and LON commands,
as the R command.
(Note 2) When the scanner is on standby, pressing the trigger switch may light the LEDs momentarily, but the scanner
cannot scan codes.
(Note 3) After receipt of one of the B1 to B3, BH1 to BH3, BM1 to BM3, BL1 to BL3, LB, LG and LR command, the
scanner may need a maximum of 100 ms to execute the command.
(Note 4) Beeping specified by control commands B1, BH1, BM1, and BL1 is dependent on the reading completion
sound and its length.
(Note 5) The PW can save settings into the FLASH ROM a maximum of 1,000,000 times due to the restrictions on the
EEPROM.
(Note 6) These control commands are available only when the scanner is not in data verification mode
