Chapter : Getting Started
Preparing the EP10 for Operation
2.1
Preparing the EP10 for Operation
2.1.1
The Batteries - 2400 mAh and 3600 mAh Lithium Ion
Two Lithium-Ion battery pack variants are available for the EP10: High Capacity 3600 mAh battery pack,
Model Number RV3010 and Standard Capacity 2400 mAh battery pack, Model Number RV3005.
Before charging the battery, it is critical that you review the battery safety guidelines in the “EP10
Hand-Held Warranty & Regulatory Guide”, PN 8000235.
Important: Always switch the unit off before changing the battery (see “Switching the EP10
Hand-Held Off” on page 9). If you do not turn the hand-held off before removing
the battery, it may be necessary to reboot the unit. Any active sessions may
be lost.
Battery packs shipped from the factory are charged to approximately 40% and must be fully charged prior
to use. Batteries can be charged using a variety of chargers and docking stations along with an EP10 internal charger. When using the internal charger, a suitable power source is required. All chargers and docking
stations are described in Chapter 7: “Peripheral Devices & Accessories”.
2.1.2
Installing the Battery
•
2.1.3
Removing the Battery
•
2.1.4
Match the contacts at the bottom of the battery with those in the battery well of the EP10 hand-held,
and gently snap into place.
Slide the battery release button (located just above the battery) to the right to release and remove the
battery from the unit.
Switching the EP10 Hand-Held On
•
Press and release the Power button.
The centre LED flashes yellow and the desktop Today screen is displayed.
Note: If the EP10 was already in use, pressing the Power button ‘wakes’ it from suspend. The screen
in which you were working prior to the suspend state is displayed.
Important: If your EP10 fails to power up, consider the following troubleshooting options: the
battery capacity may be lower than the suspend threshold, it may be
overheated (>60° C), or the battery may have fallen below the configured
suspend threshold. Refer to Section 6.5.5 Suspend Threshold and Estimated
Battery Backup on page 106 for additional details about this setting.
If you provide AC power to the EP10 and either the battery capacity is too low or is
overheated, a yellow LED will flash and the unit will not switch on. To switch on the
hand-held, replace the overheated battery or, in the case of a depleted battery, wait
for the capacity to reach an acceptable level.
However, if you provide AC power to an EP10 with a battery that falls below the
configured suspend threshold, the hand-held will switch on provided the battery
capacity is above 0 mAh.

2.5.2.2
Authentication Mode
EP10 supports several classes of authentication – Open, WEP, WPA/WPA2 (Personal PSK, Enterprise,
CCKM-WPA, CCKM-WPA2), and 802.1x with EAP. Tapping on the Auth. Mode menu displays your
authentication options.
Note: Each Auth. Mode has a unique Configure Profile screen attached to it with fields appropriate
to the authorization mode you’ve chosen.
Open Authentication
Open authentication does not provide security. When this option is chosen, EP10 will connect to wireless
networks which do not use authentication or encryption.
WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)
WEP provides static security to prevent others from accidentally accessing your network. If you choose this
option, you can specify the type of WEP authentication – Open or Shared, the WEP security key length – 64
bit or 128 bit and the key type – ASCII or Hex. WEP Key fields are also provided where you can specify a 5 or
13 ASCII character sequence or an equivalent 10 or 26 Hexadecimal digit sequence that matches the active
WEP key on the access point.
802.1X, WPA & WPA2 Enterprise, CCKM-WPA & CCKM-WPA2
These authentication modes use 802.1X with EAP authentication. When 802.1X is selected, EP10 uses WEP
encryption with automatic (as opposed to static) keying. For the others, the user may choose TKIP, AES or
TKIP+AES encryption.
WPA & WPA2 Personal PSK (Pre-Shared Key)
When PSK is selected, either WPA Personal PSK or WPA2 Personal PSK — a shared key must be configured
on both the access point and the hand-held computer. One of the following can be chosen from the Encryption drop-down menu: TKIP, AES or TKIP+AES.
2.5.2.3
Encryption
The Encryption menu allows you to choose the type of encryption that will be used to protect transmitted
data. Choose an Encryption method valid for your network from the drop-down menu. Only the Encryption
options that are compatible with the type of Auth. Mode you’ve chosen will be listed. In fact, in some cases,
this menu will not be available at all.

2.5.2.4
EAP
This menu allows you to choose the EAP (Extensible Authentication Protocol) type used for 802.1x authentication to an access point.
The following EAP types are supported by Wi-Fi Config:
•
•
•
•
•
2.5.2.5
FAST-MSCHAPv2: Is a successor to LEAP and does not require strong passwords to protect against
off-line dictionary attacks. Like LEAP, EAP-FAST does not require the use of server or client certificates
and supports Windows Active Directory and domains.
LEAP: Is an authentication method for use with Cisco WLAN access points. LEAP does not require the
use of server or client certificates. LEAP supports Windows Active Directory and domains but requires
the use of strong passwords to avoid vulnerability to off-line dictionary attacks.
PEAPv0-MSCHAPv2: Provides secure user authentication by using a TLS tunnel to encrypt EAP traffic. MSCHAPv2 is used as the inner authentication method. This is appropriate for use against Windows
Active Directory and domains.
PEAPv1-GTC: PEAP authentication using GTC as the inner method which utilizes one time passwords
(OTPs) for authentication against OTP data bases such as SecureID.
TLS: Provides strong security via the use of client certificates for user authentication.
Verify Server Certificate
When the Verify Server Certificate box is checked, the EP10 will verify the certificate provided by the authentication server during the authentication process. This requires that an appropriate certificate be manually installed on EP10 for the verification.

2.5.4.3
b only: forces the radio to operate in the 2.4GHz band only. The hand-held will only associate with an
Access Point (AP) that supports the DSSS data rates 1, 2, 5.5 & 11 Mbps. This mode has the lowest data
rate but yields the longest range.
b/g only: forces the radio to operate in the 2.4 GHz band only. The EP10 will only associate with an AP
that supports the DSSS data rates 1, 2, 5.5 & 11 Mbps and OFDM data rates: 6, 9, 12, 18, 24, 36, 48,
54Mbps. This mode offers the same range as b only mode but with higher data rate of 54 Mbps when
possible
a only: forces the radio to operate in the 5 GHz band only. The hand-held will only associate with an AP
that supports the OFDM data rates: 6, 9, 12, 18, 24, 36, 48, 54 Mbps.
11n Mode
This radio supports MIMO data rates in both 2.4 GHz and 5 G band (although it only supports single stream
operation (SISO)). This increases the maximum data rate to 65 Mbps.
•
2.5.4.4
Enabled: If this option is enabled, it is activated for the band or bands that were selected in Network
type. For example, if Network Type = b only, 11n is only switched on for the 2.4GHz band.
11n – Block Ack
When 11n – Block Ack is enabled, the EP10 will not send an ACK for every packet received, but it will send
an ACK after a block of data is received. The duration of time before sending an ACK is negotiated with the
AP.
2.5.4.5
Power Save Mode
If Power Save Mode is enabled, the radio remains on continuously. The disadvantage to enabling this
option is increased power consumption. The advantage to enabling this option is instant response to
TCP/IP traffic.
It is recommended that Power Save Mode be enabled to increase battery run time. It should only be disabled if the application is sensitive to timing.
2.6
The Phone
EP10s are equipped with phone capabilities as a standard option.
2.6.1

Removing the Battery Pack
3.2.2
Removing the Battery Pack
Important: Always shut down the EP10 before removing the battery. To safely remove the battery, press the Power button.
Keep in mind also that all EP10s are equipped with internal super-capacitors that
will save the current data for up to 2 minutes while the battery is swapped.
Refer to “Preparing the EP10 for Operation” on page 9 for more details about removing and installing
the battery.
3.2.3
Battery Swap Time
Assuming the default power saving parameters and battery reserve level have not been altered, battery
swap time is approximately 2 minutes – you will not lose data if the battery is replaced within this
time frame.
To protect data, the safest place to store data is on a microSD memory card or externally to the device on a
USB memory stick or on a PC.
The Suspend Threshold feature allows you to determine the battery capacity at which the EP10 will be shut
down. If left at the default value, Maximum Operating Time, the EP10 will run until the battery is completely
empty; the RAM is only backed up for a short period of time. If you choose Maximum Backup Time, the EP10
shuts off with more energy left in the battery so RAM can be backed up for a longer period of time.
(Refer to “Suspend Threshold and Estimated Battery Backup” on page 106 for details about reserving
battery power for data backup purposes.)
3.2.4
Charging the Battery
Batteries shipped from the factory are charged to approximately 40% of capacity. They must be fully
charged prior to use.
Important: Do not leave a spare battery to charge for more than 72 hours. Charging for more
than 72 hours may damage the battery or lead to charge capacity reduction.
Important: If the battery is overheated (>60° C) or if the battery capacity is very low (<100
mAh), the unit will not switch on when the Power button is pressed. Under the
above conditions, when AC power is applied, the EP10 will still refuse to power up;
instead, a yellow LED will begin blinking and until the battery is replaced, or in the
case of low battery capacity, the battery is charged to an acceptable level, the EP10
will not switch on.
Keep in mind also that, along with the battery, the EP10 is equipped with internal, super-capacitors that preserves data stored on the EP10 for approximately 2 minutes while the battery is swapped.
3.2.4.1
Chargers and Docking Stations
Important: FOR DETAILED INFORMATION about chargers and docking stations, refer to
Chapter 7: “Peripheral Devices & Accessories” beginning on page 179.
Lithium-Ion battery packs must be charged before use. These batteries can be charged with a variety of
chargers and docking stations. These include:
•
•
Desktop Docking Station (Model No. RV4000) operates as both a charger and a docking station. Operating as a charger, both the battery installed in the EP10 and a spare battery can be charged
simultaneously. (see “Desktop Docking Station – Model No. RV4000” on page 183)
Quad Docking Station (Model No. RV4004) can charge the battery of up to four EP10s inserted in the

Monitoring the Battery and Maximizing Run Time
3.7
Monitoring the Battery and Maximizing Run Time
Note: When the battery is at 50% capacity, a ‘low battery’ warning is displayed. When the battery is
at about 10% capacity, a ‘very low battery’ notification bubble appears.
As Lithium-Ion batteries age, their capacity decreases gradually, and they are generally considered depleted after approximately 2 years of use (less than 60% of original capacity remaining). Keep in mind
however that heavy usage or operating the EP10 at temperature extremes will shorten the battery life.
Lithium-Ion batteries do not require conditioning cycles and the EP10 battery system (including chargers)
requires no user interaction to maintain peak performance.
To maximize the run time of your batteries, consider the following:
•
•
The display backlight is a large drain on the battery. Try to keep its brightness as low as possible.
The EP10 is ‘event’ driven – that is, when it is not in use, the EP10 reverts to sleep mode (even when it
appears to be running), saving battery power. Events include a key press, touchscreen taps and scan
triggers. Power consumption is reduced if you avoid unnecessary events, and allow the EP10 to sleep
as much as possible.
•
The battery is a ‘smart battery’ with built-in intelligence.
Tapping on the Start>Settings>Power icon displays a dialog box that provides detailed information about
the battery status of the battery installed in your EP10.
•
3.7.1
When the EP10 is switched off, it goes into a low-power, suspend state but continues to draw a small
amount of power from the battery. This should not be an issue unless the EP10 is left in suspend state
for more than a week – for long-term storage, the battery should be removed.
Storing Batteries
Long term battery storage is not recommended. If storage is necessary:
•
•
•
•
•
3.8
Always try to use a ‘first-in first-out’ approach to minimize storage time.
Lithium-Ion batteries age much faster at elevated temperatures. Store batteries at temperatures
between 0° C and 20° C.
Always charge batteries to at least 40 to 60% before storing them. Batteries can be damaged by an
over-discharge phenomenon that occurs when an empty battery is stored for a long period of time
such that the cell voltage drops below a lower limit.
To minimize storage degradation, recharge stored batteries to 40 to 60% every 4 or 6 months to
prevent over-discharge damage.
A ‘never used’ Lithium-Ion battery that has been stored for 3 years may have limited or no useful life
remaining once put into service. Think of batteries as perishable goods.
Uploading Data in a Docking Station
Important: Review the documentation provided with the user application installed in your
EP10 before performing data uploads.
The desktop docking station and quad docking station are typically used to upload transaction data to a
server computer when a radio link is not available.
Note: Refer to “Chargers and Docking Stations” on page 182 for more details.
The desktop docking station can complete batch uploads to a Client USB connected PC or server.
Unlike the desktop docking station, the quad docking station supports only TCP/IP connections to a PC or
server through a 10/100baseT Ethernet connection.
When an EP10 is inserted in a docking station, a dock icon is displayed in the navigation bar at the top of the
screen. The EP10 also detects the presence of the Ethernet network.

General Maintenance
3.12.1
Caring for the Touchscreen
The top of the touchscreen is a thin, flexible polyester plastic sheet with a conductive coating on the inside.
The polyester can be permanently damaged by harsh chemicals and is susceptible to abrasions and
scratches. Using sharp objects on the touchscreen can scratch or cut the plastic, or crack the internal conductive coating.
The chemicals listed below must not come into contact with the touchscreen:
•
sodium hydroxide,
•
concentrated caustic solutions,
•
benzyl alcohol, and
•
concentrated acids.
If the touchscreen is used in harsh environments, consider applying a disposable screen protector (model
number ST6112). These covers reduce the clarity of the display slightly but will dramatically extend the
useful life of the touchscreen. When they become scratched and abraded, they are easily removed
and replaced.

Cleaning the EP10
3.12.2
Cleaning the EP10
Important: Do not immerse the EP10 in water. Dampen a soft cloth with mild detergent to wipe
the unit clean.
•
•
•
46
Use only mild detergent or soapy water to clean the EP10 unit.
Avoid abrasive cleaners, solvents or strong chemicals for cleaning. The plastic case is susceptible to
harsh chemicals. The plastic is partially soluble in oils, mineral spirits and gasoline. The plastic slowly
decomposes in strong alkaline solutions.
To clean ink marks from the keypad or touchscreen, use isopropyl alcohol.

Chapter 4: Using Windows Embedded 6.5
Navigating in Windows Embedded 6.5 and Applications
4.1
Navigating in Windows Embedded 6.5 and Applications
Graphic user interfaces like Windows Embedded 6.5 for portable devices or desktop Windows (2000, XP,
etc.) utilize ‘point and click’ navigation. On the EP10, this is accomplished using a touchscreen and stylus
rather than a mouse.
4.1.1
Navigating using the Touchscreen and Stylus
Note: If the touchscreen is not registering your screen taps accurately, it may need recalibration.
Refer to “Aligning (Calibrating) the Touchscreen” on page 39.
A touchscreen is a standard feature on all EP10s. Each is equipped with a stylus – a pointing tool – stored in
a slot at the top-right side of the unit.
•
•
•
4.2
Use the stylus to tap on the appropriate icon to open files and folders, launch applications and programs, make selections, and so on. You can also use your finger rather than the stylus.
Tap and flick the stylus or your finger on the screen to scroll through the options on a screen.
Tap on the navigation bar to display additional icons.
The Today Screen
The Today screen provides quick access to a default list of applets such as phone, voicemail, and so on. This
screen is also equipped with a navigation bar along the top of the screen which provides access to hotkeys.
Hotkeys act as shortcuts to apps. Along the bottom of the screen, a softkey bar contains softkeys that help
you navigate – in particular, the Start button which provides access to everything else you’ll need to work
with Windows Embedded 6.5.

E-mail
5.5
E-mail
Note: If your e-mail is already synchronized, go to “Sending an E-mail” on page 70.
The E-mail program is used to send and receive e-mail on your EP10. It also provides access to
text messages.
To send and receive e-mail, you’ll need to synchronize your PC or connect to a Post Office Protocol 3
(POP3) or Internet Message Access Protocol 4 (IMAP4) mail server.
For each of these methods, you need to set up an e-mail account with one exception – Outlook e-mail accounts are set up by default.
5.5.1
Folders
If you use an Outlook e-mail account, messages in the Inbox folder in Outlook are automatically synchronized with your EP10. You can use ActiveSync on your PC to synchronize additional folders. The folders and
messages you move are mirrored on the server.
For POP3 accounts, if you move e-mail messages to a folder you create, the link between the messages on
the EP10 and the copies on the mail server are broken. When you next connect, the mail server will recognize that the messages are missing from the EP10 Inbox folder and delete them from the server, preventing
duplication of messages. Keep in mind however that you will not have further access to messages that you
moved to folders from anywhere except with the EP10.
For IMAP4 accounts, the folders you create and the messages you move are reflected on the server, making
messages available any time whether you connect to your mail server from your EP10 or your PC.
5.5.2
Synchronizing E-mail with Outlook (PC with Windows XP OS)
Important: For PCs running Windows Vista or Windows 7, follow the guidelines under “Synchronizing E-mail with Outlook (PC with Windows Vista or Windows 7)” on page 69.

text input methods.
5.22.3.2 Sharing Documents with your PC
Documents created on a PC are recognized by your EP10. However, some formatting is lost when a Word
document is converted to a Word Mobile document. This loss also occurs when you open a .doc file and
change it on the EP10.
Important: To avoid problems, you can work on copies of .doc files. In addition, keep in mind
that you can use the Terminal Services Client program to log onto a desktop PC
that is also running Terminal Services, and then you can use any program on your
PC, including Microsoft Word (rather than Word Mobile).
Refer to “Remote Desktop Mobile” on page 95.
5.22.4
PowerPoint Mobile
PowerPoint Mobile works just like the desktop version that may be installed on your PC. To launch this
program on your EP10:
•
5.22.5
Tap on Start>Office Mobile>PowerPoint Mobile.
SharePoint Mobile
SharePoint Mobile allows you to open, edit, and save documents that are on a SharePoint site (a web site
that lets you and others share and collaborate on documents, projects, schedules, and so on).
•
•
•
Tap on Start>Office Mobile>SharePoint Mobile.
Tap on the Address softkey to highlight the web address field. Type the SharePoint address you want
to access.
Tap on Go to access documents in the SharePoint site you specified.
Note: To access a SharePoint site using SharePoint Workspace Mobile from inside your organization, you need to set up a Wi-Fi connection that lets you access a SharePoint site on your
company's network.

SIM Toolkit UI
SIM Toolkit UI is an ETSI/SMG standard for Value Added Services and e-commerce using GSM phones.
The EP10 operator can, for example, check bank accounts and pay bills using a SIM Toolkit-enabled phone
with an appropriate SIM Toolkit-specific SIM card which will provide much of the information required to
conclude a transaction over GSM.
If this service is available in your organization, the system administrator can provide the set up information
for your service.
5.26
PsionVu
PsionVU allows the administrator to tailor how the EP10 operates and the options the user can access. Note
that the look of the Today screen will change from icons that are finger accessible to a list of items that is
best accessed using a stylus.
Important: For details about this application, refer to “PsionVU” on page 152.

tomatically and uses the reserve power to preserve the data stored on the EP10. Once the EP10 shuts down,
it cannot be switched on until a fresh battery is installed, or the unit is inserted in a docking station
or cradle.
•
Slide the Suspend Threshold button to the right to increase the battery capacity reserved for backup
purposes. Data will be preserved to a maximum of 100 hours.
•
Slide the Suspend Threshold button to the left to decrease the power reserved for backup purposes;

Internal super-capacitors will protect the data stored in the EP10 while the depleted battery is swapped for
a fully charged one.
Note: Once the battery is removed, the super-capacitor will preserve the data stored on the EP10 for
approximately 5 minutes. It is critical that you install a charged battery before this time elapses.

Servers Tab
When a remote Bluetooth device initiates a Bluetooth connection to the EP10, the remote device is considered the ‘Bluetooth master’ and the hand-held, the ‘Bluetooth slave’. In order for the remote device to
connect to the EP10, the EP10 must offer a service in the form of a server. The Servers tab allows these
services to be enabled and configured. There are three server services available: Serial, Scanner and
OBEX OPP.
Serial server enables the Serial Port Profile server; a Serial Port can be selected from the drop-down menu.
Keep in mind that when a port is chosen, an application must be open (connected) to the chosen port for a
remote device to be able to connect.
Scanner server enables a Serial Port Profile server and then relays it to the Scanner Service (SCS). This is
used for Bluetooth bar code scanners that operate in client mode. SCS opens the server port and handles
the scanner input.
OBEX OPP server enables the Object Push Profile server. A warm reset must be performed on the EP10
after a change is made to this option. The OPP Server allows other Bluetooth devices to send files to
this device.

A scancode is a number that is associated with a physical key on a keyboard. Every key has a unique scancode that is mapped to a virtual key, a function, or a macro. Scancode Remapping allows you to change the
functionality of any key on the keyboard. A key can be remapped to send a virtual key (e.g. VK_F represents
the ‘F’ key; VK_RETURN represents the [ENTER] key, etc.), perform a function (e.g. turn the scanner on,
change volume/contrast, etc.) or run a macro.
There are three different tables of scancode mappings: the Normal table, the Blue table and the Orange
table. The Normal table defines unmodified key presses; the Blue table defines key presses that occur when
the [FN/BLUE] modifier is on; the SYM table defines key presses that occur when the [FN/ORANGE] modifier is on. The default mappings of these scancodes can be overwritten for each of these three tables using
Scancode Remapping.

Buttons
The first column in the Scancode Remapping tab displays the scancodes in hexadecimal. If the scancode is
remapped to a virtual key, that virtual key is displayed in the next column labelled ‘V-Key’. A virtual key that
is ‘Shifted’ or ‘Unshifted’ is displayed in the third column labelled ‘Function’.
If the scancode is remapped to a function or a macro, the first and second columns remain blank while the
third column contains the function name or macro key number (e.g., Macro 2).
Adding a Remap
To add a new remapping:
•
Tap the Add button at the bottom of the dialog box.
The Remap Scancode dialog box is displayed.
•
Type the scancode in hexadecimal in the field labelled Scancode.
Note: The Label field displays the default function of the scancode you are remapping.
Virtual Key, Function and Macro
The radio buttons at the bottom of the dialog box allow you to define to what the scancode will
be remapped to: Virtual Key, Function or Macro.
When Virtual Key is selected, you can choose to force [SHIFT] to be on or off when the virtual key is sent. If
No Force is selected, the shift state is dependent on whether the shift state is on or off at the time the
virtual key is sent.
When Function is selected, a list of valid functions appears in the dialog box.
When Macro is selected, the macro keys available on your unit are listed in the dialog box.
•
•
Choose Virtual Key>Function or Macro.
Choose a function from the Function list, and tap on OK.

GPS (Global Positioning System) Settings
AGPS (Assisted Global Positioning System) Tab
To determine your location, a GPS module receives data from three or more GPS satellites in fixed orbit
around the Earth. The GPS module triangulates your location based on the time it takes for signals to get to
and from the satellites. This works well in fairly clear areas – outdoors, for example. However, if you’re attempting to triangulate your location in city centres where signals bounce off tall concrete buildings or
from within a building, the GPS module will have greater difficulty calculating a fix.
AGPS reduces Time To First Fix (TTFF) and increases the likelihood of finding and keeping a fix in poor coverage areas such as indoor sites. AGPS downloads satellite ephemeris (orbital) data to the EP10 periodically
through WiFi or WWAN. The downloaded data is used by the GPS module to speed the process of getting
a fix.
Update
•
Click on the Update button to download Extended Ephemeris (EE) files from a secure host on the internet using any interface that has an internet connection (WWAN or WiFi). These files contain several
days worth of ephemeris (orbital) data that can be used if the satellite’s broadcast ephemeris is not
available.
The Status field above the Update button displays the progress of the download, and once successfully
downloaded, the Status field will read Idle.

6.10.12.1 Trigger Mappings
A trigger mapping is an association between a particular key on the keyboard and a driver or application,
the module(s) – sometimes referred to as “trigger consumer(s)” – of the trigger source. Along with keyboard keys, trigger sources can also be grip triggers, external hardware triggers or software-based. When
the specified key is pressed, the trigger consumer (for example, a decoded scanner) is sent a message.

Chapter 6: Settings
Manage Triggers
Important: It is not possible to have two or more identical mappings — for example [F1] cannot be
mapped to the Non-Decoded Scanner twice — even if the trigger type is different.
A keyboard key that is used as a trigger source will no longer generate key data or
perform its normal function. For example, if the space button is used as a trigger
source, it will not be able to send space characters to applications.
Double-Click
When a key is pressed and released, then pressed again within the configured time (between 0 to 1000 milliseconds), a double-click occurs. See also “Trigger Press Type” on page 149.

Note: It is possible to map the same source to different modules (trigger consumers) – for example, to
both the Imager and Non-Decoded Scanner. If so, both devices/operations will occur simultaneously. This is not recommended in most cases, especially with devices such as Imagers.
It is also possible to map different sources to the same module (trigger consumer).

Trigger Press Type
You can enable either an Up/Down or Double Click response to a trigger press. Normally, when a trigger
(keyboard key, etc.) is pressed and released, a “trigger down” event is sent to the “owner” – that is, the application receiving the trigger press information – followed by a “trigger up”. If Double Click is chosen in this
menu, when the trigger is pressed, released, and then pressed again, a “double-click” event will occur. If a
mapping with the Up/down type has also been configured for the same source, it will only receive the first
set of trigger events.

6.10.20.1.1Double Click Parameters
Click Time (msec)
This parameter controls the maximum gap time (in milliseconds) for a double-click. If the time between the
first and second clicks of the scanner trigger is within this time, it is considered a double-click. The allowable range is 0 to 1000. A value of zero disables this feature.
A double-click produces different results depending on whether or not a value is assigned in the “Click
Data” parameter. When a value is not assigned for the “Click Data”, double-clicking the scanner trigger
overrides the target dot delay set in the “Dot Time” parameter and initiates a normal scan sweep. If a value
is assigned for the “Click Data” parameter, double-clicking the scanner trigger inserts the “Click Data”
value rather than initiating a scan.
Click Data
For both integrated and external scanners, this parameter determines which character is sent to the application installed in your EP10 following a double-click. A dialog box appears, asking that you press the key
you want to insert. The ASCII/Unicode key value of the keypress is displayed.
6.10.20.1.2Display Parameters
Scan Result
When this parameter is enabled, the type of bar code and the result of the scan appear on the screen. Note
that this information is only displayed after a successful decode and is visible only while the scanner button
is pressed. When the button is released, this information is cleared from the screen.
Scan Indicator
When this parameter is enabled, the laser warning logo appears on the display whenever the scanner
is activated.
Scan Result Time (msec)
The value assigned to the “Scan Result Time (sec)” parameter determines how long the scan results of a
successful scan are displayed on the screen. Time is measured in seconds, and a value of “0” (zero) disables
the parameter. When you choose this option, a dialog box appears where you can enter a value.
Note: To remove the scan result from the screen before the “Result Time” has expired, point the scanner
away from the bar code and press the trigger.
Good Scan Beep and Bad Scan Beep
These parameters determine whether or not the EP10 emits an audible scanner ‘beep’ when a good (successful) scan or a bad (unsuccessful) scan is performed, the number of vibrates, the duration of the vibrate,
and so on. Set these parameters to tailor the behaviour of this parameter.
Multiple Beep Tones
This parameter determines whether or not multiple beeps will be allowed.

Scanner Settings
Good and Bad Scan Vibrates
These parameters determine whether or not the EP10 will vibrate (rather than beep) when a good (successful) scan or a bad (unsuccessful) scan is performed. Set these parameters to either on to enable the beeper
or off to disable it. You can further refine how you want the vibrations to behave, specifying the following:
Number of Vibrates, Duration of Vibrate (in milliseconds), and Pause between Vibrates (in milliseconds).
Soft Scan Timeout
This parameter is used by the SDK “Scan” function (soft-scan: starting a scan session via the SDK function,
instead of a physical user trigger press). The value assigned to this parameter determines the soft-scan
timeout from 1 to 10 sec. (default is 3 sec.).
Scan Log File
If this parameter is enabled, the input bar code and the modified/translated output bar code are logged in
the file \Flash Disk\ScanLog.txt. Keep in mind that if the “Scan Log File” is enabled, there is a slight performance effect when performing multiple scans since the log file is written to persistent storage.
6.10.20.1.3Data Handling
This option allows you to choose the code page your EP10 will use to display data – Default Local ASCII or
ISO-8859-1 Latin 1.
Codepage:
Tapping on this option displays a window in which you can define the code page your EP10 will use.
If you choose Default Local ASCII, the code page of the local OS is used. For example, if the local OS uses
double-byte Chinese characters, choosing this option will filter data through the local ASCII of that OS and
display it accurately, in this example, using double-byte characters.
If you choose ISO-8859-1 Latin 1, data will be displayed according to the character mapping of this Latin 1
code page, ignoring the local OS code page.
6.10.20.2 Translations Tab
The Translations tab allows you to define up to 10 cases, each consisting of up to 10 rules in sequential
order. Only one case will be applied to a bar code and a case will only be applied if all rules specified in the
case are successful – if a rule within a case fails, the entire case fails.

6.10.20.2.1Case Rules
The case rules are defined as follows:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
No rule – ignored.
Match at index – matches the match string at a specified index.
Match and replace at index – matches the match string at a specified index and replaces/changes it.
Replace at index – replaces/changes unspecified data in a given range.
Add barcode prefix/suffix – adds a global prefix or suffix.
Verify barcode size – verifies the bar code size. This rule should generally be assigned first, before creating subsequent rules.
Search and replace – replaces all instances of the match string. (Note that this rule cannot fail.)
Important: Keep in mind that the effects of previously applied rules must be taken into account
when creating subsequent rules. For example, if the bar code size is important, it should
be checked before any rules that might change the size are applied.
The information about the status of each case/rule is displayed in the scan log file (see “Scan Log File” on
page 165) when enabled. This is useful if a case fails, and you are trying to determine why a rule is failing.

Total Recall
•
Tap on Start>Settings>System. Tap on the Total Recall icon.
You can choose from one of the following: Create Profile, Restore Profile, View Profile, or Delete Profile.
6.10.25.1 Creating a Backup Profile
Tap on the Next button [-->] to begin the process.
Profile Information
•
To begin, type a name for the profile in the field labelled Profile Name.

Manual Restore – creates a backup that is manually restored by the operator.
•
Auto Restore – creates a profile that automatically restores itself following a cold start.
•
Finally, if you want to choose another location for your backup file (optional), tap on the [...] button to
the right of the Profile Location field.
Important: Any profile not stored in persistent memory (flash disk, external USB drive) will be
erased during a clean boot. It is a good idea to store profiles on a persistent drive.
When performing an autorestore, the program only searches for profiles located in the
root folder of persistent drives. If you store your profile anywhere else it will not be
restored.
When there are multiple autorestore profiles found, only the latest is restored.
•
•
Navigate to the new location, and tap on OK to save it.

The cradle comes with four mounting screws, with illustrated electrical and mounting instructions.
Before Psion releases a product, our engineering team exposes that product to a series of severe testing to
ensure that it will survive in the rugged environments in which our products are typically used. These tests
usually include shock and vibration testing as well as IP testing for water and dust, electrical shock, etc.
If a third party vehicle mount is used, the third party should perform the same type of testing in order to
ensure that the design will maintain the factory specifications of the product. If the third party company is
unwilling to perform the necessary testing and take responsibility for the effects of the design, then we
highly recommend using Psion designed and supported accessories.
If you elect to use a third party company produced cradle, Psion cannot take responsibility for the effects of
that third party product if it causes failure of our device.
Important: Before using a vehicle cradle, read all instructions and markings on the housing.
Do not operate a vehicle cradle if damaged by a sharp blow, dropped, or otherwise
damaged in any way; qualified service personnel should inspect for internal
damage.
Shock and vibration specifications for the EP10 are verified using Psion-approved

RV1005 Vehicle Cradle Mounting Recommendations
Important: Before mounting a vehicle cradle in a vehicle, there are a number of operator
safety issues that require careful attention. An improperly mounted vehicle cradle
may result in one or more of the following: operator injury, operator visibility
obstruction, operator distraction and/or poor ease of egress for the operator.
Psion strongly recommends that you seek professional mounting advice from the
vehicle manufacturer.
Cable routing within a vehicle cab also requires careful consideration, especially
for separately tethered scanners and other devices with loose cables. If you are
unable to obtain suitable advice, contact Psion for assistance.
In addition, for safety reasons, only pedestal mounts with fully locking joints
should be used in vehicles. Always adjust the pedestal for the optimum viewing
angle, and securely tighten the hex and wing screws.
The EP10 Powered Vehicle Cradle is designed to be compatible with any RAM-B mounting interface – Model
number RAM-B-166-202U. Use the four #M4X12 screws provided with the RAM mount to secure the cradle
to the RAM mount. Bolts must not extend more than 7 mm into the vehicle cradle.
If you wish to custom mount the vehicle cradle to a surface other than the recommended RAM, please carefully follow the precautions listed under “Mounting Template” on page 194.
7.11.1.1
Mounting Template
The vehicle cradle is shipped with mounting instructions including a drilling template. Refer to the EP10
Hand-Held Vehicle Cradle Quick Start Guide (PN 8000234).
In every case, please take the following precautions:

Cable Arrangement
Figure 7.10 RAM Mount – Model Number RAM-B-166-202U
To accommodate the service loop of the power cable, leave a 10.2 cm (4 in.) clearance at the bottom of the
vehicle cradle. Leave a 17.8 cm (7 in.) clearance at the top of the vehicle cradle to allow easy removal of
the EP10. When selecting a mounting location, refer to the assembly instructions that are packaged
with the pedestal.
Important: Before Psion releases a product, our engineering team exposes that product to
vibration tests to ensure the EP10 will remain secure during normal use. But as a
low cost mount, the cradle will not defend against shock if the vehicle undergoes a
front or rear impact. Take care to mount the cradle in an upright position in case
of accidents.
If you choose to use a third party company-produced cradle, Psion cannot take responsibility for the effects
of that third party product when it causes failure to our device.
7.11.2
Cable Arrangement
Before installing cables between the cradle and other devices, review the following:
•
•
•
•
•
•
7.11.3
Ensure that drilling holes will not damage the vehicle or its wiring.
Protect cable runs from pinching, overheating and physical damage.
Use grommets to protect cables that pass through metal.
Use plastic straps and tie-downs to secure cables and connectors in their desired location, away from
areas where they may get snagged or pulled.
Keep cables away from heat sources, grease, battery acid and other potential hazards.
Keep cables away from control pedals and other moving parts that may damage the cables or interfere
with the operation of the vehicle.
Electrical Requirements
There are two options to power your EP10 once it is inserted in the Powered Vehicle Cradle – the Vehicle
Power Outlet Adaptor (model no. RV3050) or the 10 foot DC Power Extension Cable (model no. RV 1205).
Warning:
Applying a voltage above 36VDC or reversing polarity may result in permanent
damage to the vehicle cradle power section and will void the product warranty. For
safety reasons, disconnect the vehicle cradle power cable when the vehicle
battery is being charged by an source other than the vehicle alternator.

Chapter 7: Peripheral Devices & Accessories
USB and Serial Connections
7.11.3.1
Wiring Vehicle Power to the Cradle
The Powered Vehicle Cradle uses the vehicle power outlet or the vehicle fuse box to power from the vehicle
battery system. The Vehicle Power Outlet Adaptor (Model No. RV3050) is used for the vehicle power outlet;
the Power Extension cable (model number RV1205) is used for the vehicle fuse box.
Warning:
A properly trained technician must perform the power connection using Power
Extension cable, model no. RV1205 (PN 1101033) and the RV1005. Improper connection can damage the vehicle or the cradle.
This cable can be used to provide power to RV1005 from a fused circuit. The
vehicle cradle should be added to a fused circuit with a new maximum load capacity of the original load plus the cradle load, which is 3 A.
Power cables are equipped with fuses and instructions are supplied with each cable. Use only a 4 A slow
blow Safety-approved fuse in the fuse assembly.
These cables should only supply operating power from the vehicle to the Powered Vehicle Cradle from
12VDC or 24VDC systems.
•
•
7.11.4
The Powered Vehicle Cradle draws no more than 1.9 A @ 12 VDC or 0.95 A @ 24 VDC. Any additional
wiring, connectors or disconnects used should be rated for at least 3A. The Powered Vehicle Cradle
and peripherals can be used with both negative ground systems when using the Power Extension
cable. Peripheral wiring should be closely examined to avoid ground loops in positive ground systems.
There is the option of connecting power to the cradle before or after the ‘key’ switch.
- It is preferable to wire after the key switch. In this configuration, when the key is turned ON, the
vehicle will power the cradle and docked EP10, charging the internal battery when needed. When the
vehicle ignition is OFF, the EP10 docked in the cradle will run on its internal battery.
- However, if the operator switches the key off repeatedly for long periods during a shift, it may make
more sense to wire the vehicle cradle before the switch. In this case, the EP10 will always operate
from vehicle power and that power will charge the battery when needed.
- Keep in mind that the EP10 will continue to operate with or without vehicle power as long as the
internal battery has sufficient charge.
USB and Serial Connections
Important: Depending on the configuration, the RV1005 Powered Vehicle Cradle has a maximum of
two connectors and one power connector.
The Powered Vehicle Cradle full configuration consists of one serial DE-9M port and one micro-USB port
located at the base of the cradle. These are COM and USB ports that allow serial and USB devices to communicate with the EP10. These ports include:
•
One powered USB micro AB.
•
One full Serial port.
Peripherals such as scanners, printers, GPS, etc., may be used with the EP10 and the cradle. Check with
Psion if there is any compatibility issue with the device you want to use with the EP10 and the cradle.
7.11.5
Inserting the EP10 in the Vehicle Cradle
The Powered Vehicle Cradle has a spring action that allows it to stretch up to accommodate the EP10 and
then snap in place to hold the hand-held securely. You do not need to remove the hand-strap to insert the
hand-held in the cradle. To insert the EP10 in the Powered Vehicle Cradle:
•
•
•
196

EA11 Imager
Note: Refer to Appendix C: “Imagers Applet” for details about configuring your imager.
The EP10 hand-held supports the EA11 Decoded 2D imager. This imager can be configured using the
Scanner Settings located under Settings>System>Scanners (see “Scanner Settings” on page 163) and the
Manage Triggers application (see “Manage Triggers” on page 147). Refer to Appendix C: “Imagers Applet”
for details about imager settings.
It is critical that you review the safety information in the “EP10 Hand-Held Computer and Accessories Regulatory & Warranty Guide”, PN 8000235 before proceeding.
7.12.1
Operating Two Dimensional (2D) Imagers
An imager takes a snap shot of a single bar code or multiple bar codes (at one time). It can find a bar code
regardless of its orientation – that is, even a bar code printed at a 45 degree angle to the EP10 will be
decoded successfully.
Note: When scanning multiple bar codes, ensure that all of the desired bar codes are within the
field of view of the scanner. It is possible that even when all bar codes are within the field of
view, not all of them will be decoded. Only successfully decoded bar codes are passed to the
application program. The application program then issues a warning, asking that you scan
the missing bar codes.
When scanning a single bar code, ensure that only the desired bar code is within the field of
view of the scanner.
Psion EP10 Hand-Held Computer User Manual
197
Chapter 7: Peripheral Devices & Accessories
Bluetooth Peripherals
Because imagers generally have a shorter depth of field than laser scanners, some practise may be required to find the optimal distance from the types of bar codes being scanned. Although the imager includes illumination LEDs, ambient light will help the imager decode the bar codes, especially if the bar code
is far from the EP10.
Important: Keep in mind that the imager scanner is a camera, and the LED illumination is a
flash. Glare can be an issue on reflective media such as plastic coated bar codes,
just as glare is an issue for photographers. When pointing at a shiny surface,
either shift the bar code to the side or top, or angle the bar code so that the glare
reflects away from the imager scanner.
Most imagers take several ‘snap shots’ of the bar code in order to decode it. It is
normal for the LEDs to flash two or three times. Hold the unit steady between
flashes to improve decode performance.
•
•
Switch the EP10 on. Wait until the unit has booted up completely.
Aim at the bar code and press the scan key or the trigger. Hold the trigger until a successful or failed
scan result is obtained.
•
When the scan button or trigger is pressed, a red, oval shaped light (the framing marker) is displayed.
Centre the framing marker in the field—either in the centre of the bar code you want to scan or in the
centre of the area in which multiple bar codes are to be scanned.
The illumination LEDs will flash (typically several times) and a picture of the bar code(s) is taken.
7.13
Bluetooth Peripherals
The EP10 is equipped with a Bluetooth radio, making it possible to communicate with a variety of Bluetooth
peripherals, including GSM/GPRS handsets, scanners, printers and so on.
Psion provides built-in support for the Bluetooth peripherals listed below.
•
GSM/GPRS universal handset
•
Bluetooth printer
•
Bluetooth headset
Keep in mind that Bluetooth and IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n radios both operate in the 2.4GHz band. Although the
EP10 includes features to minimize interference, performance of the system will not be optimal if you use
both radios simultaneously. Typically, when both radios operate in the EP10 at the same time, they cannot
transmit simultaneously – this has a negative impact on overall system throughput. To minimize the impact
on the backbone 802.11g network, Psion recommends using Bluetooth peripherals that have low transaction rates (such as printers and scanners).
Refer to “Bluetooth Setup” on page 108 for information about setting up your Bluetooth devices for communication. In addition, review the manual shipped with your Bluetooth device to determine the method
used to pair with the EP10 host.
7.14
Digital Camera
Important: The EP10 is equipped with a digital camera that can take still pictures or short video
clips. Refer to Section 5.10 Pictures & Videos on page 74 for details about using the
camera.
The Pictures & Videos applet allows the operator to activate the camera for still shots or video clips. It also
provides a number of tools to crop photos, adjust picture contrast and brightness, zoom in and out of
photos, and save your adjustments.
Important: The “Pictures & Videos” program can only display .bmp or .jpg formats. Photos in
other formats will need to be converted on your PC before they can be transferred
to the EP10 hand-held.

Wireless WAN
The EP10 is available with one of the following Wireless WAN (WWAN) radio options: the Cinterion PH8 for
GSM/UMTS networks worldwide, or the Sierra Wireless MC5728V for the Sprint and Verizon CDMA networks in the U.S.
A.2
Navigation Bar Icons
Wireless WAN icons are displayed in the navigation bar at the top of the screen that identify the packet data
service and the signal strength.
When a modem detects that a packet data service is available, a letter is added to the signal strength icon
indicating the type of service. Keep in mind that the signal strength icon is displayed without a letter if
packet data service is not available, or if it is available but not yet initialized.
The symbols in the navigation bar identifying the modem connection are as follows:

Note: For details about assigning a PIN number, refer to “Phone: Security Tab” on page 23.
A.3.2.3
Bands
By default, all frequency bands are enabled. Bands should not be disabled without knowledge
about which bands are used by your network; an incorrect setting will prevent the WWAN modem from
finding the network.

Establishing a CDMA Radio Modem Connection
A.3.2.4
Network Configuration
By default the radio modem automatically chooses from the available and allowed networks (allowed networks are the home network and all other networks with which the home network has a roaming agreement). You may find there are some situations in which you want to override this default behaviour. For
example, you might want to disable roaming if you find yourself in a border area where the home network is
not available but a foreign roaming partner is available. Abroad, you may find that an available network
does not have GPRS roaming agreements. In this case, you’ll need to manually select the network which
you know supports GPRS roaming.
Automatic network selection is enabled by default. You can also choose a network manually from the
drop-down menu.
Note: Your home network operator will need to let you know which other networks have roaming
agreements. Even when a network is listed with an ‘Available’ status, it does not necessarily
follow that it can be used or that the roaming agreement covers GPRS.

Appendix C: Imagers Applet
Required Applets
The Imagers applet is used to create, modify, delete and activate imager settings. The principle uses of the
applet are to decode bar codes and to capture images. A Demonstration Application is provided to demonstrates how the imager works. Refer to “Imager and Camera Demo” on page 88 for details.
C.1
Required Applets
In order to configure imaging, the Manage Triggers applet must be present in the Settings>System tab along
with the Imagers applet.
C.2
Presets
There are two methods that can be used to configure an imager using the Imagers applet:
•
•
Use a predefined preset.
Create a custom preset based on a predefined preset.
Important: It is strongly recommended that a predefined preset is used whenever
possible. Each predefined preset contains a coherent group of settings
that are known to work together in the intended environment. In
almost all situations, at least one of the predefined presets results in
a satisfactory outcome.
A preset is a group of exposure and image correction settings. Each preset configures the imager for a specific purpose such as bar code decoding or image capture.
Presets also allow easier and faster configuration of the imager after power-on or resume from suspend.
The predefined presets are generic and satisfy most user requirements. A custom preset can be created for
a specific user application, such as: include only specified bar codes, read only a specified number of bar
codes or for reading unusual media.
Every preset belongs to a preset type. The following preset types are available:
•
Imaging for photo capture.
•
Imaging for bar code decoding.
•
Symbology selection.
At any time, only one preset of each type can be designated as the user-selected active preset.
C.2.1
Predefined Presets
Predefined presets are built into the imaging software and cannot be changed. The predefined presets
allow you to use the imager to perform specified tasks without having to understand and set numerous variables. In almost all cases these predefined presets are sufficient.
C.2.2
Bar Code Predefined Presets
These presets encompass the majority of the most popular bar codes and their subtypes. The bar code decoding symbology predefined presets define which bar codes can be decoded. The bar code decoding
camera predefined presets determine how the bar code images are captured
C.2.2.1
Bar Code Decoding Symbology Predefined Presets
The following presets select groups of similar bar codes for decoding.
Note: It is recommended that the default preset be used whenever possible.
Factory Default
This preset enables the decoding of frequently used bar codes.
My Default
