INTRODUCTION
The MS5145 Eclipse is a single-line, hand-held laser scanner.
Equipped with Metrologic’s patented CodeGate technology, Eclipse can be
used in a wide variety of applications. CodeGate technology allows the user to
easily target the desired bar code and complete the data transmission with a
simple press of a button. This combination makes Eclipse a perfect selection
for menu scanning, point-of-sale, document processing and inventory control.
With Metrologic’s state-of-the-art scanning technology embedded inside, the
MS5145 Eclipse has a longer working range and a wider scan field than a
typcial CCD. The width of the scan line grows as the scanner moves further away
from bar codes. In addition, the laser beam pulses making lining up bar codes
easy, and when the scanner senses a bar code (CodeSense™ Mode), the laser
beam automatically switches to scan mode and activates CodeGate to ensure
high-speed scanning and accuracy.
Metrologic has included many standard features such as: user programmable
®
®
Flash ROM, PowerLink user-replaceable cables, MetroSet 2 and MetroSelect
configuration, EMI rating of Class B, and data editing (parsing).

SCANNER PARTS
Green & Red LEDs
The MS5145’s laser pulses on and off when no bar code is presented, and
stays on when it senses a bar code. The green LED remains on during
normal pulse and scanning operation, and it blinks during power save mode.
On a successful read of a bar code, the red LED will flash and the scanner
will beep once. The LEDs are also used as diagnostic indicators and mode
indicators.
CodeGate Button
CodeGate technology allows the user to easily target the desired bar code
and complete the data transmission with a simple press of a button.

AUDIBLE INDICATORS
When the MS5145 scanner is operational, it provides audible feedback. These
sounds indicate the status of the scanner. Eight settings are available for the
tone of the beep (normal, 6 alternate tones and no tone). To change the tone,
refer to the Configuration Guide.
One Beep – on power up
The green LED will turn on, then the red LED will flash and the
scanner will beep once. The red LED will remain on for the
duration of the beep. The scanner is now ready to scan.
One Beep – during operation
When the scanner successfully reads a bar code, the red LED
will flash and the scanner will beep once (if programmed to do
so). If the scanner does not beep once and the red light does
not flash, then the bar code has not been successfully read.
Three Beeps – during operation
When entering the program mode, the red LED will flash while
the scanner simultaneously beeps three times. The red LED
will continue to flash until the unit exits program mode. Upon
exiting program mode, the scanner will beep three times and
the red LED will stop flashing.
When configured for communication timeout, 3 beeps during
operation will indicate that a communication timeout has
occurred.
Three Beeps – on power up
This is a failure indicator. Refer to the Failure Modes section
of this guide on page 11.
Razzberry Tone
This is a failure indicator or an invalid code read during
program mode. Refer to the Failure Modes section of this
guide on page 12.
12
VISUAL INDICATORS
There is a red LED and a green LED on the MS5145. When the scanner is on,
the activity of the LEDs indicates the status of the current scan and the scanner.
Green and Red LEDs are off
The LEDs will not be illuminated if the scanner is not receiving
power from the host or transformer.
Steady Green
Indicates normal pulse or continuous laser operation.
Accompanied by a razzberry tone, it indicates that an invalid
bar code has been scanned.
Flashing Green
After a period of inactivity, the ON time of the pulsing laser will
be shortened. During this time the green LED will flash. This
indicates that the scanner is in a power saver mode. When a
bar code enters the laser field, the scanner will wake up and
return to normal pulse mode.
Steady Green and Single Red Flash
When the scanner successfully reads a bar code, the red LED
will flash and the scanner will beep. If the red LED does not
flash and the scanner does not beep, then the bar code has
not been successfully read.
Steady Green and Steady Red
After a successful read, the scanner transmits the data to the
host device. Some communication modes require that the host
inform the scanner when data is ready to be received. If the
host is not ready to accept the information, the scanner’s red
LED will remain on until the data can be transmitted.
Steady Green and Continuous Flashing Red
When entering the program mode, the red LED will flash, the
green LED will turn on and the scanner will beep three times.
The red LED will continue to flash and the green LED will stay
on until the unit exits the program mode.
13
FAILURE MODES
One Razzberry Tone on Power-up
This indicates the scanner has experienced a laser or flipper
subsystem failure. Return the unit for repair to a Metrologic
Authorized Service Center.
Continuous Razzberry Tone with all LEDs off
If, upon power up, the scanner emits a continuous razzberry
tone, then the scanner has an experienced an electronic
failure. Return the unit for repair to a Metrologic Authorized
Service Center.
Three Beeps – on power up
If the scanner beeps 3 times on power up then, the non-volatile
memory (NovRAM) that holds the scanner configuration has
failed. Return the unit for repair to a Metrologic Authorized
Service Center.
14
PROGRAMMING MODES
The MS5145 Eclipse has 3 modes of programming.
Bar Codes
Eclipse can be configured by scanning the bar codes located in the
MetroSelect® Single-Line Configuration Guide (MLPN 00-02544). Please
refer to this guide for instructions. This manual can be downloaded for
FREE from Metrologic’s website (www.metrologic.com).
MetroSet®2
This user-friendly Windows-based configuration program allows you to
simply ‘point-and-click’ at the desired scanner options. This program can be
downloaded for FREE from Metrologic’ website (www.metrologic.com), or
set-up disks can be ordered by calling 1-800-ID-METRO.
Serial Programming
This mode of programming is ideal for OEM applications. This mode gives
the end-user the ability to send a series of commands using the serial port of
the host system. The commands are equivalent to the numerical values of
the bar codes located in the MetroSelect Single-Line Configuration Guide
(MLPN 00-02544).
How does Serial Programming work?
1.
Each command sent to the scanner is the ASCII representation of each
numeral in the configuration bar code. The entire numeric string is framed
with an ASCII [stx] and an ASCII [etx].
EXAMPLE #1:
Command for Disabling Codabar
Command = [stx]100104[etx]
String Sent to Scanner = 02h 31h 30h 30h 31h 30h 34h 03h
(All values are hexadecimal).
2.
If the command sent to the scanner is valid, the scanner will respond with an
[ack].
3.
If the command sent to the scanner in invalid, the scanner will respond with
a [nak].
NOTE: If this occurs, the end-user must start over at the very beginning of
the configuration sequence. Re-transmitting the invalid command
will not work, the user must start over.
15
PROGRAMMING MODES
4.
During programming, the motor and laser turn off. YOU CANNOT SCAN A
BAR CODE WHILE IN SERIAL PROGRAM MODE.
5.
There is a 20 second window between commands. If a 20 second timeout
occurs, the scanner will send a [nak] and you must start over.
6.
To enter serial program mode, send the following command
[stx]999999[etx].
7.
To exit serial program mode, send the following command [stx]999999[etx],
the scanner will respond with an [ack] followed by 3 beeps.
8.
This mode uses the current Baud Rate, Parity, Stop Bits and Data Bits
settings that are configured in the scanner. The default settings of the
scanner are 9600, Space, 2, 7 respectively. If a command is sent to the
scanner to change any of these settings, the change will NOT take effect
until after serial program mode is exited.
EXAMPLE #2:
The following example will set the scanner to the factory default settings,
Disable Scanning of Code 128 bar codes, change the beeper tone, and add
a “G” as a programmable prefix.

The scanner will beep three times!
The commands sent to the scanner do not include the small superscripted
‘3’ that you see in front of each bar code string in the MetroSelect manual.
THE ‘3’ SHOULD NOT BE SENT. IT IS A CODE TYPE DESIGNATION
ONLY!
As you will note for commands requiring additional bar codes to be scanned
(such as prefixes, suffixes, timeouts, etc.), simply send the code bytes in the
same order that you would normally scan the bar codes.

The scanner will beep three times!
This example illustrates two important points.
First, if an invalid command is sent from the host, the scanner responds with
a [nak] and the end-user must start over from the beginning.
Second, if a command is sent to change the Baud Rate, the new baud rate
does not take effect until after the end-user exits program mode.

Upgrading the Flash ROM Firmware
The MetroSet2 program is a functional component of Metrologic’s new line of
Flash- based scanners. This program allows the user of a Metrologic scanner to
quickly upgrade to a new or custom version of software. It requires the use of a
personal computer running under Windows 95 or greater and the use of a
communication port. The user merely connects the scanner to a communications
port of the PC, launches the MetroSet2 program, and blasts off to new software
upgrades.
Each MS5145, regardless of the version number or communication protocol, can
be upgraded. In other words, all RS232 (-41), keyboard wedge (-47), light pen
(-41), laser emulation (-00), OCIA (-9), IBM 468X/469X (-11), low speed
HID/POS USB (-38), and integrated full speed USB (-40) units can be upgraded.
To upgrade all units, a power supply and PowerLink cable (MLPN 54-54012) are
required. For RS232 units the 54-54000-3 cable will work.
The upgrades and custom software versions will be supplied by Metrologic in
files called Motorola S-record files. These files contain all the information needed
to upgrade the scanner. Simply add this file to the working directory or retrieve
from its current location.
The program guides the user with its simplistic one click approach. The user
must first select the file; once selected and verified the file is ready to be used in
the upgrade. Press the button to upgrade the scanner, the unit will go into a
“flash mode” – both the green* and red* LEDs will be on. The user can follow the
progress of the upgrade by watching the screen for details. When the upgrade is
complete, the scanner will respond with its normal one beep on power up. If two
beeps occur, the scanner did not upgrade properly. Contact a Metrologic service
representative for additional assistance.
MetroSet2 incorporates all functions that were previously in Meteor.

In some custom units the standard green LED has been replaced with a blue LED and
the red LED has been replaced with a white LED.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
Symptoms
Possible Causes
Solution
The unit powers
up, but does not
scan and/or
beep.
The bar code being
scanned does not
satisfy the
programmed criteria
for character length
lock or minimum
length.
The unit scans a
bar code, but
locks up after the
first scan and the
red* LED stays
on.
The unit is configured
to support some form
of host handshaking
but is not receiving
the signal.
If the unit is setup to support
ACK/NAK, RTS/CTS, XON/XOFF
or D/E, verify that the host cable
and host are supporting the
handshaking properly.
The unit scans,
but the data
transmitted to the
host is incorrect.
The unit’s data format
does not match the
host system’s
requirements.
Verify that the unit’s data format
matches that required by the host.
Make sure that the unit is
connected to the proper host port.
The print quality of
the bar code is
suspect.
Check the print mode. The type of
printer could be the problem.
Change the print settings.
The aspect ratio of
the bar code is out of
tolerance.
i.e. Change to econo mode or
high speed.
The unit beeps
at some bar
codes but NOT
for others of the
same bar code
symbology.
The unit scans
the bar code but
there is no data.
The bar code may
have been printed
incorrectly.
The unit is not
configured correctly
for the type of bar
code being scanned.
Verify that the bar code being
scanned falls into the
programmed criteria.
The scanner defaults to a
minimum of 3 character bar code.
Check if it is a check
digit/character/or border problem.
The minimum symbol
length setting does
not work with the bar
code.
Check if the correct minimum
symbol length is set.
The unit’s
configuration is not
correct.
Make sure the scanner is
configured for the appropriate
mode.
23
TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE

as lower case.
The computer is in
Caps Lock mode.
Enable the Caps Lock detect
feature of the scanner to detect
whether the PC is operating in
Caps Lock.
Everything
works except for
a couple of
characters.
These characters
may not be supported
by that country’s key
look up table.
Try operating the scanner in Alt
mode.
The com port at the
host is not working or
not configured
properly.
Check to make sure that the baud
rate and parity of the scanner and
the communication port match
and that the program is looking for
“RS232” data.
The cable is not
connected to the
proper com port.
Check to make sure that the unit
is connected to the correct com
port on the host device.
The host is
receiving data
but the data
does not look
correct.
The scanner and host
may not be
configured for the
same interface
parameters.
Check that the scanner and the
host are configured for the same
interface parameters.
Characters are
being dropped.
Inter-character delay
needs to be added to
the transmitted
output.
Add some inter-character delay to
the transmitted output by using
the MetroSelect Single-Line
Configuration Guide.

powers-up OK
and scans OK
but does not
communicate
properly to the
host.
24
RS232 DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM
If an RS232 scanner is not communicating with your IBM compatible PC, key in
the following BASIC program to test that the communication port and scanner are
working.
This program is for demonstration purposes only. It is only intended to prove that
cabling is correct, the COM port is working, and the scanner is working. If the bar
code data displays on the screen while using this program, it only demonstrates
that the hardware interface and scanner are working. At this point, investigate
whether the application software and the scanner configuration match.
If the application does not support RS232 scanners, a software wedge program
that will take RS232 data and place it into a keyboard buffer may be needed.
This program tells the PC to ignore RTS-CTS, Data Set Ready (DSR) and Data
Carrier Detect (DCD) signals. If the demonstration program works and yours still
does not, jumper RTS to CTS and Data Terminal Reading (DTR) to DCD and
DSR on the back of your PC.

LASER AND PRODUCT SAFETY
Caution
Caution
Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than those specified
herein may result in hazardous laser light exposure. Under no circumstances should the
customer attempt to service the laser scanner. Never attempt to look at the laser beam, even
if the scanner appears to be nonfunctional. Never open the scanner in an attempt to look
into the device. Doing so could result in hazardous laser light exposure. The use of optical
instruments with the laser equipment will increase eye hazard.
Atención
La modificación de los procedimientos, o la utilización de controles o ajustes distintos de
los especificados aquí, pueden provocar una luz de láser peligrosa. Bajo ninguna
circunstancia el usuario deberá realizar el mantenimiento del láser del escáner. Ni intentar
mirar al haz del láser incluso cuando este no esté operativo. Tampoco deberá abrir el
escáner para examinar el aparato. El hacerlo puede conllevar una exposición peligrosa a la
luz de láser. El uso de instrumentos ópticos con el equipo láser puede incrementar el
riesgo para la vista.
Attention
L'emploi de commandes, réglages ou procédés autres que ceux décrits ici peut entraîner
de graves irradiations. Le client ne doit en aucun cas essayer d'entretenir lui-même le
scanner ou le laser. Ne regardez jamais directement le rayon laser, même si vous croyez
que le scanner est inactif. N'ouvrez jamais le scanner pour regarder dans l'appareil. Ce
faisant, vous vous exposez à une rayonnement laser qú êst hazardous. L'emploi
d'appareils optiques avec cet équipement laser augmente le risque d'endommagement de
la vision.
Achtung
Die Verwendung anderer als der hier beschriebenen Steuerungen, Einstellungen oder
Verfahren kann eine gefährliche Laserstrahlung hervorrufen. Der Kunde sollte unter keinen
Umständen versuchen, den Laser-Scanner selbst zu warten. Sehen Sie niemals in den
Laserstrahl, selbst wenn Sie glauben, daß der Scanner nicht aktiv ist. Öffnen Sie niemals
den Scanner, um in das Gerät hineinzusehen. Wenn Sie dies tun, können Sie sich einer
gefährlichen Laserstrahlung aussetzen. Der Einsatz optischer Geräte mit dieser
Laserausrüstung erhöht das Risiko einer Sehschädigung.
Attenzione
L’utilizzo di sistemi di controllo, di regolazioni o di procedimenti diversi da quelli descritti nel
presente Manuale può provocare delle esposizioni a raggi laser rischiose. Il cliente non
deve assolutamente tentare di riparare egli stesso lo scanner laser. Non guardate mai il
raggio laser, anche se credete che lo scanner non sia attivo. Non aprite mai lo scanner per
guardare dentro l’apparecchio. Facendolo potete esporVi ad una esposizione laser
rischiosa. L’uso di apparecchi ottici, equipaggiati con raggi laser, aumenta il rischio di
danni alla vista.
