The label on the cradle contains LED indicators and a scan finder button. When the
button is pressed, the cradle transmits a “broadcast” message. All properly
configured scanners (Radio RX Timeout set to keep the radio “awake”) linked to that
base (through a bind or a join sequence) and within radio range coverage will emit a
beep sequence once every 2 seconds for 30 seconds. A scanner is considered to be
linked when the last transmission ends properly.
The scan finder works only in stand-alone layout (point to point or multiple readers).

INTRODUCTION

INTRODUCTION
Datalogic renews its range of industrial laser scanners introducing the
™
™
™
PowerScan family: PowerScan D8330 and PowerScan M8300. Robustness
and ergonomics remain unsurpassed: clearly audible beeper and bright "good
read" LEDs for areas where noise levels are normally high; the aim mode, which
™
helps point to the right code, has now been extended to the whole PowerScan
family. Optical parts are completely suspended on shock absorbers and a
careful choice of the body materials, such as the co-moulded rubber, protect
™
the PowerScan from damage due to "falls".
New enhanced architecture, based on an M16 high-speed microprocessor, enables
exceptional performance for promptness and reading speed of standard codes as
well as the ability to read poorly printed and damaged codes. Puzzle
Solver Technology™, a patent from Datalogic, adds further strength to the
™
PowerScan powerful engine.
™
In all applications where mobility is a value, the new PowerScan M8300
represents the
key
to
increase
productivity
and
flexibility
in
the
™
working area. PowerScan M8300 communicates through a low power, license
free radio in the 433 MHz band (910 MHz for USA version) and allows bi™
directional communication between the base station and the host. PowerScan
M8300 also includes a display and either a 3 or 16-key push-button keypad.
Thanks to these features, the operator can receive information from the host,
interact with the central system and visualize the code read. The cordless
system offers scalable solutions to solve simple applications and complex
projects:
•
Point to point: each reader is associated with its own base station;
•
Multipoint: up to 32 readers transmit data to one base station;
•
Network: to cover a wide area, connecting up to 16 bases and 512 readers
simultaneously working in automatic roaming.
™
PowerScan
M8300 is 100% compatible with STAR-System™, the new
Datalogic RF narrow band solution for mobile applications that provides the
widest family of narrow band devices on the market.
™
Your PowerScan reader is supplied with its own Quick Reference Guide, which
provides connection, diagrams, reading diagrams, basic application parameter
settings, default values, and specific technical features. You can use either the Quick
Reference Guide or this Manual for initial configuration in order to set the default
values and select the interface for your application. This manual provides all the
necessary information for complete mechanical installation and system software
configuration.

NETWORK CONNECTIONS
BC-8060 Network Connectors
The multidrop network is a bus system which is propagated from one BC-8060 cradle
to another using individual cables. This is possible thanks to the RS-485 connector
on the front panel of the cradle.

All cradles are connected together within the bus system through the Datalogic
RS-485 splitter cable (CAB-428, part number 90A051950), which must be inserted in
the RS-485 cradle connector.
Obviously cable length is to be kept to a minimum as with all bus systems.

2.8.2
Network Cabling
The Multidrop line is made using RJ45 connectors and a cable having the following

When wiring the multidrop cables, note the following:
Pin 8 (or 7) can be connected only if the power has to be propagated from a cradle to a
STARGATE™ base station or STAR-Box™ converter via the cable.
Pins 5 (or 4) should always be connected as reference ground.
To avoid excessive voltage drop, it is recommended not to propagate power between
BC-8060 cradles when used as battery chargers but to supply each cradle
individually. The total number of devices, which can be connected to a single power
supply, depends on the power supply voltage, the wire length and resistance and
therefore the voltage drop. Do NOT connect VDC+ between network devices that are
individually powered.

POWERSCAN™ D8330/M8300/M8300-DK
2.8.3
Network Termination
The first and last cradles of the chain (the two ends of the bus) must be properly
terminated. The cradle has an internal terminator that can be selected via jumper.
For this selection you must open the device.
No Termination
Static
Dynamic
Terminator for Multidrop Network
Static termination works for all network configurations. However, the network is
always under load even when no data transmission takes place.
Dynamic termination can be used for baud rates at or above 38400 and provides less
load on the network when idle.

Since the cradles can communicate to multiple PowerScan M8300 readers,
you might find it useful to employ one or more C-8000 battery chargers in addition
to the BC-80X0 cradle, so that the battery re-charging operation can be
performed for several scanners at the same time.

In this layout the BC-80X0 cradle is connected by a dedicated cable using the RS-232
interface to a C-BOX connection box as part of a fixed scanner network. This allows the
flexibility of a hand-held reading station integrated into a variety of fixed scanning
applications so that all readers (both fixed and hand-held), in the system provide
communications to the Host.
The various C-BOX models provide many interface types for the Host system such as
RS-232, RS-485, Profibus.

MULTIDROP STAR-SYSTEM™ NETWORK LAYOUTS
Even though many stand-alone systems can operate in the same physical area without
interfering with each other, it may be desirable to bridge data from multiple
™
base stations in a network to a single Host. PowerScan M8300 readers are
compatible with STAR-System™ networks. These networks provide seamless active
roaming for any RF reading device in the system.

in the RS-485 network. In this way the base stations provide communications between
a single Host and all readers in the system. STARGATE™ base stations are used as
slaves in this network. The Slaves at the ends of the network must be terminated (see
the STARGATE™ and STAR-Box™ Installation Manuals and par. 2.8.3).

In this layout an BC-8060 cradle acts as the Master. The Host is connected to the
BC-8060 Master using any one of the multi-standard interfaces (RS-232, USB,
WEDGE, or PEN Emulation). The Master is then connected to the slaves in the RS-485
network. In this way the slave cradles provide communications between a single Host
and all readers in the system. STARGATE™ base stations can also be used as slaves
in this network. The devices at the ends of the network must be terminated (see par.

3.2.3
Master BC-8060 Network Troubleshooting
Two diagnostic strings can be sent via RS-232 from the Host to the Master cradle in
order to have feedback about the network itself.
#+LSlave
Returns a list of all the Slaves recognized at boot up.
Example:
In a network where the Master cradle has address 0188 and one Slave cradle with
address 0001, the response is:
188
1
#+Alive<xxxx>
Executes a continuous Alive request to the slave xxxx in order to monitor the
performance of the connection. A diagnostic message is displayed on the Host.
Example:
If this command is sent for slave cradle with address 0032, the response is:
/*32: BC-80X0 SOFTWARE RELEASE 1.00 20/10/2006*/
if there are no communication errors
/*32: FAIL*/
if there are communication errors.
To exit from this command, reset the system by cycling power to the Master cradle.

The USB interface is available for PowerScan D8330, BC-80x0 and C-8000
devices and is compatible with the following Operating Systems:
Windows 98 (and later)
Mac OS 8.0 (and later)
IBM POS for Windows
4690 Operating System
USB Start-up
As with all USB devices, upon connection, the Host performs several checks by
communicating with the device. During this phase normal operations are
™
suspended (the LED on the PowerScan D8330 reader blinks). Two basic
conditions must be met before the device is ready, the correct USB driver must be
loaded and sufficient power must be supplied to the reader.
 For all systems, the correct USB driver for the
default USB-KBD interface is included in the Host
Operating System and will either be loaded
automatically or will be suggested by the O.S.
and should therefore be selected from the dialog
box (the first time only).
Normally the Host supplies sufficient power to
the device and the start-up phase ends
correctly. (The reader's LED stops blinking and
the reader emits the beep OK signal).
In rare cases, if the Host does not supply
sufficient power to the device, a dialog box will
appear on the Host and the device will be
blocked (the reader's LED continues blinking). In
this case, disconnect the USB device cable at the
Host (the reader's LED stops blinking), and then
try a different USB port as indicated by the
Operating System message. (The device emits
the beep OK signal. You can now read codes).

NETWORK PARAMETERS are available only for BC-8060 Network configurations.
The following parameter groups are common to all interface applications:
DATA FORMAT parameters regard the messages sent to the Host system for all
interfaces except Pen Emulation.
POWER SAVE manages overall current consumption in the reading device.
READING PARAMETERS control various operating modes and indicator status
functioning.
DECODING PARAMETERS maintain correct barcode decoding in certain special
reading conditions.
CODE SELECTION parameters allow configuration of a personalized mix of codes,
code families and their options.
ADVANCED FORMATTING PARAMETERS allow code concatenation and
advanced formatting of messages towards the Host. It cannot be used with Pen
Emulation connections.
RADIO PARAMETERS (M8300 series only) allow configuration of radio control
parameters.
DISPLAY PARAMETERS (some M8300 series models only) allow configuration of

KEYBOARD SETTING
ALPHANUMERIC KEYBOARD SETTING
The device (reader or cradle) can be used with terminals or PCs with various keyboard types
and nationalities through a simple keyboard setting procedure.
The type of computer or terminal must be selected before activating the keyboard setting
command.
Keyboard setting consists of communicating to the device how to send data corresponding to
the keyboard used in the application. The keys must be set in a specific order.
Press and release a key to set it.
Some characters may require more than one key pressed simultaneously during normal use
(refer to the manual of your PC or terminal for keyboard use). The exact sequence must be
indicated to the reader in this case pressing and releasing the different keys.
Example:
If one has to press the "Shift" and "4" keys simultaneously on the keyboard to transmit the
character "$" to the video, to set the "$", press and release "Shift" then press and release "4".
Each pressed and released key must generate an acoustic signal on the device;
otherwise repress the key. Never press more than one key at the same time, even if this
corresponds to the normal use of your keyboard.
Press "Backspace" to correct a wrong key entry. In this case the device emits 2 beeps.
NOTE: "CAPS LOCK" and "NUM LOCK" must be off before starting the keyboard setting
procedure. "SHIFT" must be repressed for each character and cannot be substituted by "CAPS
LOCK".

Some ASCII characters may be missing as this depends on the type of keyboard: these are
generally particular characters relative to the various national symbologies. In this case:
•
The first 4 characters (Shift, Alt, Ctrl, and Backspace) can only be substituted with
keys not used, or substituted with each other.
•
characters can be substituted with other single symbols (e.g. "SPACE") even if not
included in the barcode set used.
•
characters can be substituted with others corresponding to your keyboard.
The device signals the end of the procedure with 2 beeps indicating the keys have been
registered.

Read the Exit and Save Configuration code ONCE, available at the top of

Code selections may be performed according to two different procedures:
Auto-configuration, allowing an automatic recognition and selection of the code families
to be read;
-
Manual configuration, requiring configuration and selection of each code family to be
read.
AUTO-CONFIGURATION
The following codes do not require reading the Enter and Exit configuration codes.
In auto-configuration mode the reader enters a particular state, during which it reads,
recognizes and saves all information received from the decoding of an existing code (with the
exception of MSI, Code 49 and Code 16k code types). In this way, the code families will be
automatically configured.
It is possible to configure up to 10 code types, whose length is variable and check digit ignored.
If reading different codes belonging to the same family, information about the last code will
overwrite the information about the previous one.
Follow the given procedure to auto-configure the desired code families:
If no code is read during the auto-configuration procedure (step ), the
configuration will be empty and therefore the reader will be unable to read
codes.
CAUTION

If you need to change the configuration, repeat the auto-configuration procedure, follow the

The 16-key keypad is organized like a cell phone, with multi-tap access to alpha characters on
numeric keys. In alphabetic mode (entered by toggling the Shift key), the keys must be pressed
once, twice, or more to obtain the desired letter. See page 202 for more information about the
keypad.
This command allows you to specify the time which occurs between a key press, and the

FUNCTION KEY PROGRAMMING
There are four function keys, F1, F2, F3, F4, plus the SHIFT key (↑), which can be defined as
Function 5. Each of these keys can be programmed to perform a user-assigned function. This is
done by associating a function key with an entry in the String Table, which is a database
resident on the 16-key PowerScan. You can select either a predefined command or define your
own custom string. See the “String Table” command on page 142 to define customized strings
for the String Table. See the “Shift Key Programming” command on page 143 to define the
SHIFT key as F5.
Each function key has an associated mnemonic label which shows in the display when active.
The default labels are shown in the table below. To program the function key labels, see
“Function Key Label” command on page 143.
The following table shows the list of commands and available strings.

of good reception or the NACK character (15 HEX) requesting re-transmission, in the
case of bad reception.

5.1.3.
™
PowerScan M8300 Readers
The transmission protocol takes place between reader, cradle and Host. The reader
passes its data (code read) to the cradle, which sends it to the Host. The

FIFO
™
PowerScan D8330 Readers
This parameter determines whether data (barcodes) are buffered on a First In First
Out basis allowing faster data collection in certain cases for example when using
slow baud rates and/or hardware handshaking.
If the FIFO buffering is enabled, codes are collected and sent out on the serial line in
the order of acquisition. About 800 characters can be collected (buffer full), after
which the reader signals an error and discards any further codes until the
transmission is restored.
If the FIFO buffering is disabled, each code must be transmitted before another one
can be read.
™
PowerScan M8300 Readers
™
If enabled, the BC-80X0 collects all messages sent by PowerScan M8300
and sends them in order of acquisition to the connected Host.
™
If disabled, PowerScan M8300 blocks message transmission until the BC-80X0
has completed transmission towards the Host.

RX Timeout
When the RS-232 interface is selected, the Host can be used to configure the device
by sending it command strings (see Appendix A).
This parameter can be used to automatically end data reception from the Host after
the specified period of time.
If no character is received from the Host, after the timeout expires, any incomplete
string (any string not terminated by <CR>) is flushed from the device buffer.
5.2
5.2.1
PEN PARAMETERS
Minimum Output Pulse
This parameter sets the duration of the output pulse corresponding to the narrowest
element in the barcode. In this way the code resolution is controlled by the signal
sent to the decoder, independently of the physical resolution of the code read.
The shortest pulse (200 µs) corresponds to a high-resolution code emulation and
therefore a shorter transfer speed to the decoder (for decoders able to work on high
resolution codes). Likewise, longer pulses correspond to low-resolution code
emulation and therefore a longer transfer time to the decoder.
5.2.2
Conversion to Code 39 and Code 128
™
PowerScan D8330 Series Readers
When using these readers it is possible to convert all codes to Code 39. By disabling
this option the decoded codes will be transmitted in their original format, except for
the following codes, which are ALWAYS converted into Code 39 format:
MSI, Code 11, Code 16K, Code 49, GS1 DataBar™.
™
PowerScan M8300 Series Readers
When using these readers it is possible to choose between converting the decoded

5.3.1
NETWORK PARAMETERS
Slave Address Range First/Last
These parameters define the valid addresses for the Slave cradles on the network.
Valid values are in the range 0 to 1999. However, the maximum number of cradles in
a single network is 16, (including the Master if present). All cradles in the system
must have different addresses.
To reduce system boot time, it is recommended to number the Slaves consecutively,
while it is not necessary that the Master cradle address is contained in the range.
The network addresses correspond to the radio addresses, see par. 4.7.
At system power-up, the Master searches for and initializes all the Slaves found in
the valid address range. During this phase the yellow LED on the Master cradle
blinks. The time to complete the start up procedure varies depending on the
complexity of the network but is typically between a few seconds to a few minutes.
Start up cannot be interrupted. At the end of this procedure the system will be
operative and can collect data from all devices.
CAUTION
5.3.2
All Slaves must be powered up either before or together with the
Master. Slaves successively powered will not be recognized by
the system even if their address is in the specified range.
Network Warning Message
The Master cradle can transmit warning messages to the Host regarding some
network errors.
/*Slave xxxx not responding*/: when the Master can no longer communicate
with the specified Slave previously identified at start up.
/*Frame out of sequence for terminal xxxx*/: if a reader is sending data
packets out of sequence. This can happen if there are transmission problems
on the network (either connection or communication), or if the reader has
correctly transmitted data to a device not on the network (reader configuration
error).
165
POWERSCAN™ D8330/M8300/M8300-DK
The message is sent in the following format:
"Message" CR LF
5.3.3
Reception Warning Message
The Master cradle can transmit warning messages to the Host regarding wrong
reception of data. Example:
/*Two-Ways Out of Sequence!(.....)*/
This message is transmitted to the Host by the Master cradle when the
Master cradle receives a closing string from the Host for a Two-way tx
communication, but this was either not open or already closed, therefore the
data will be lost. See par. 5.9.4.
5.3.4
Master Header/Terminator Selection
In addition to the standard header/terminator selection, the Master cradle can add its
own header/terminator to the entire message sent to the Host.
In the STAR-System™ network headers and terminators for all RF Devices are
disabled by default.
The Master header and terminator default values are as follows depending on the
interface selection towards the Host:
RS-232:
no header, terminator CR-LF
WEDGE:
no header, terminator ENTER
See par. 5.4.1 and 5.4.2.
5.4
DATA FORMAT
For an overview of Message Formatting see Chapter 6.
5.4.1
Header/Terminator Selection
The header/terminator selection is not effected by the reading of the restore default
code. In fact, header and terminator default values depend on the interface selection:
166
RS-232:
no header, terminator CR-LF
WEDGE:
no header, terminator ENTER
REFERENCES
These default values are always restored through the reading of RS-232 or WEDGE
interface selection code, see chapter 2.

The Time Stamping parameter sets the format for hour and date information. It consists
of 1 or 2 groups of numbers, each one made up of 6 decimal digits.
For example, setting the Hour/Minutes/Seconds/Month/Day/Year format, the
information 17:03:16 on June 12, 2002 will be formatted as 170316061202.
5.4.6
Time Stamping Delimiter
The Time Stamping Delimiter allows a character to be included to separate the Time
Stamping field from the next field in the message. Any character can be included in
the hexadecimal range from 00 to FE.

5.5.1
POWER SAVE
Sleep State
When using interfaces other than USB, this mode allows the µP in the reader to enter
a “Sleep” state for minimum power consumption. For D-series readers, this command
is only valid when hardware trigger type is selected.
Before entering Sleep mode, the following are verified:
•
no commands coming from Host
•
no data being transmitted to Host
•
Enter Sleep Timeout ended (see par. 5.5.2)
To exit Sleep mode press the trigger.
For M8300 series readers, sleep state is entered immediately after reading a code
and is not configurable. To exit Sleep mode press the trigger.
When using the USB interface, this mode allows the device to manage Selective
Suspend conditions generated by the Host Operating System in which optimizing low
power consumption (ex. Windows Stand-by). It is possible to exit the Suspend mode
either from the Host (ex. moving the mouse during Stand-by) or through the barcode
reader. The latter, called Remote Wakeup, makes the device wake up the Host
restoring the communication. Remote Wakeup is possible by pressing the trigger.

5.5.2
Enter Sleep Timeout
For readers that have the Sleep state enabled, this timeout determines when the
reader will enter this state.
5.6
READING PARAMETERS
5.6.1
Trigger Signal
This mode determines how the reading phase is controlled when the hardware
trigger operating mode is selected:
•
trigger active level: the reader goes ON when the trigger is pressed and goes
OFF when it is released
•
trigger active pulse: the reader goes ON at the first trigger press and goes OFF
only at a second press
5.6.2
Trigger Click
When enabled, it activates a "click" sound upon each trigger pressure.
5.6.3
Trigger-Off Timeout
When this timeout is selected, the reader turns OFF automatically after the desired
period of time.
5.6.4
Reads per Cycle
In general, a reading cycle corresponds to the ON + OFF times of a device.
The resulting effects of this parameter on code reading depend on other related
configuration conditions. Here are the definitions of ON and OFF times.
•
•
For readers using the software trigger parameter (FLASH MODE), a reading
cycle corresponds to the flash on + flash off times. Code reading takes place
during the flash on time.
For readers using the hardware trigger parameter, a reading cycle corresponds
to a trigger press (ON) + one of the following OFF events:
trigger release (for trigger active level)
a second trigger press (for trigger active pulse)
trigger-off timeout (see par. 5.6.3).
177
POWERSCAN™ D8330/M8300/M8300-DK
When one read per cycle is selected, the device decodes only one code during the
ON period and immediately turns the reader OFF. It is only possible to read another
code when the next ON time occurs.
In multiple reads per cycle, the ON period is extended so that the device can
continue decoding codes until an OFF event occurs. For software trigger mode, the
flash on period is immediately reset after each read and therefore extended. If
another code is decoded before the reset flash on period expires, it is again reset
and the effect is that the device remains ON, decoding codes until the flash on or
timeout period expires.
The Safety Time parameter should be used in this case to avoid unwanted multiple
reading of the same code, see par. 5.6.5.
5.6.5
Safety Time
Safety time prevents the device from immediately decoding the same code more
than once. Same code consecutive reading can be disabled requiring the reader to
be removed from the code (no decoding) for at least 400 ms, or a timeout can be set
up to 9.9 seconds before the decoder will accept the same code. Reading is
immediate if the code changes.
The safety time parameter is not applicable when reading stacked codes or when
setting one read per cycle in hardware trigger operating mode, since these settings
require voluntary action by the user.
5.7
DECODING PARAMETERS
CAUTION
5.7.1
These parameters are intended to enhance the decoding capability
of the reader for particular applications. Used incorrectly, they can
degrade the reading performance or increase the possibility of a
decoding error.
Ink-Spread
The ink-spread parameter allows the decoding of codes, which are not perfectly
printed because the page texture tends to absorb the ink.
5.7.2
Overflow Control
The overflow control parameter can be disabled when decoding codes printed on
small surfaces, which do not allow the use of an overflow space.
This command does not affect code families 2/5, Code 128 and Code 93.
178
REFERENCES
5.7.3
Interdigit Control
The interdigit control parameter verifies the interdigit spacing for code families
Code 39 and Codabar.
5.8
5.8.1
ADVANCED FORMATTING
Match Conditions
Selecting an Advanced Formatting and specifying a Match restriction (Code Type,
Code Length, Predefined Characters) the code will be transmitted according to the
order of the defined formats.
For example, defining 2 formats where:
•
Format 1: Match Code type = Code128
•
Format 2: Match Code length = 15 and Match with Predefined Characters
“DATA”
a Code128 “DATA:12345ABCDE” with code length 15 will be formatted following
the Format 1.
To send the same code with the Format 2 it is necessary to invert the format order as
follows:
•
Format 1: Match Code length = 15 and Match with Predefined Characters
“DATA”
•
Format 2: Match Code type = Code128

5.9.1
RADIO PARAMETERS (M8300 SERIES ONLY)
Radio Protocol Timeout
This parameter sets the valid time to wait before transmission between the M8300
series reader and BC-80X0 cradle is considered failed.
This parameter should be set taking into consideration the radio traffic (number of
readers in the same area).
If the RS-232 interface is used with ACK/NACK enabled, this parameter should be at
least equal to the RX Timeout parameter for low traffic environments. It should be
increased if there are many readers in the same area.
It can be set between 2 and 19 seconds.
179
POWERSCAN™ D8330/M8300/M8300-DK
5.9.2
Radio RX Timeout
When the scanner is used in a standalone layout (point-to-point or with multiple
readers) it can be configured to receive “asynchronous” messages from the host at
any time.
There are two modes which can enable the scanner to receive messages from the
host:
1)
Enable “2 way” Communication Protocol – After the transmission of each
1
barcode, the scanner waits for an acknowledgement from the host . A
message can be sent by the host accompanying this acknowledgement, or in
place of it, to display something on the screen or execute a command (such
as sound a beep sequence, turn an LED on or off, etc.). If no
acknowledgement or message is received from the host within a
programmable timeout duration, the radio will be switched off and an “error
transmission” beep will be sounded.
2)
Independent of the Selected Protocol – The scanner can be configured to
keep the radio receiver “awake” for a defined period of time following each
transmission. Any message coming from the host1 before expiration of the
timeout is accepted. The parameter “Radio RX Timeout” is used for specifying
how long the scanner have to wait for a message after receiving each code
transmission.
In this mode, the radio can also be “awakened” by pressing the trigger.
The scanner can receive a message only if it is linked to the Base (i.e. the
scanner has been joined to the Base and has had at last one “valid”
transmission after the last power-on). Setting the “Radio RX timeout” value to
“00” specifies that the radio never goes into sleep mode (always awake  the
scanner can receive a message at any time). Choosing this setting will, of
course, consume battery life more quickly.

See Section 6.3 for Host to Scanner message formatting.
5.9.3
Power-Off Timeout
If this command is enabled, after the desired timeout in hours, the
™
PowerScan batteries are disconnected and all power consumption ceases. To
restore power, press the trigger once. The reader will now be ready to read codes.
Power-off does not affect configuration parameters.
180
REFERENCES
5.9.4
Transmission Mode
This parameter determines whether the reader receives responses or messages from
the Host or not. In One-Way tx mode, neither Host nor cradle responds to the reader.
In Two-Way tx mode, the reader must receive a response from either the cradle or
the Host.
The cradle responds (empty message) to the reader, only after good transmission to
the Host, for the following conditions: ACK/NACK enabled, see par. 5.1.2; WEDGE or
PEN interface. For these conditions, it is suggested to prolong the Radio Protocol
Timeout, see par. 5.9.1.
Enabling Two-Way tx mode temporarily disables FIFO buffering see par. 5.1.3.
With ACK/NACK disabled, the Host responds to the reader (through the cradle) with
an answer message (message to reader display or command to reader), see par. 6.3
and the following figure.

Beeper Control for Radio Response
For M8300 series readers, the data entry good read tone normally results in two
beeps; the first indicates that the reader has decoded the code; the second indicates
whether BC-80X0 has received the data.
This can be changed according to the following selections:
♦ Normal: both good decode and good receptions are signaled (two beeps).
♦ Only Good Decode: only the first beep indicating a good read is signaled.
♦ Only Good Reception: only the second beep indicating a good reception is
signaled.
♦ Off: Neither good read nor good reception beeps are signaled.
For all configurations, any transmission errors will always be signaled.
181
POWERSCAN™ D8330/M8300/M8300-DK
5.9.6
Single Store
™
When single store mode is enabled, if the PowerScan M8300 fails to transmit
a code to the cradle, it enters a special operating mode that prevents the user
from reading barcodes. When such operating mode is entered, the trigger no
longer enables barcode reading but is used to retry transmission itself for the
number of attempts selected in configuration. Once the transmission is
successful the reader returns to the standard mode. If transmission is not
successful after the number of configured attempts, the code is discarded.
Single store may be useful if you often read codes at the limit of the coverage area
and there is a chance that code transmission can fail. In such case single store
allows you to move to a more favorable position or location (i.e. closer to the cradle)
and retry transmission without the necessity of re-reading the code since it is already
stored in the reader.
Conversely, if single store is disabled, and the user wants to retry transmission, the
code must be read again, and therefore the attempt must be made from basically the
same location. If the user gives up, he does not know if the transaction was
successful. (Actually the transmission could have been successful but the cradle may
have been unable to acknowledge the message). There are applications in which
there is no risk of transmission failure. In such cases it may be better to disable
single store so that the user perceives a more consistent behavior of the trigger in
that it always corresponds to code reading.
5.9.7
Batch Mode
This Operating Mode allows storing read codes in the internal reader memory. The
stored codes are transmitted to the base station at a later time according to the type
of batch mode selected.
Batch mode can be enabled either manually (normal batch mode) or automatically.
Normal batch mode temporarily suspends radio communication between reader and
base station allowing codes to be stored in the reader on a FIFO (first in, first out)
basis. This can be useful, for example, if codes must be read from a location where
there is no radio network. Upon returning to the system working area, this mode
requires reading the Start Normal Batch Transmission barcode to successively
transmit the list of stored codes to the base station. The FIFO management assures
that the first code read will be the first code to be transmitted to the base station.
The Delete Batch Data barcode allows canceling all barcode data stored in the
reader.
Automatic batch mode allows codes to be stored in the reader on a FIFO basis
whenever the reader is out of radio range. In this case radio communication is not
suspended and transmission is attempted after each code read. If transmission
cannot be successfully completed, then the code is added to the list. When the
182
REFERENCES
reader returns in range, transmission of the codes to the base station resumes
automatically, according to the selected communication protocol, upon simply
pressing and releasing the trigger or by successfully reading a new code.
In batch mode, the selected Transmission Mode determines the behavior of the
reader at the time the list of codes is transmitted. If One-way mode is enabled, the
codes are transmitted one after the other without interruption. In Two-way mode,
after transmitting each code, the reader waits for the Host answer message to be
shown on the display. Therefore, in Two-way transmission mode and normal batch
mode, the Start Normal Batch Transmission barcode must be read after each code
to continue; whereas with automatic batch mode, just pull and release the trigger
after each code.
3-KEY MODEL
Each code is listed on the reader display together with its identifying position number
and its total number of characters. The three keys under the display have the

16-KEY DK MODEL
If the ‘Enable Normal Batch’ barcode is read (see page 134), the FUNCTION KEY1
(F1) is automatically re-configured to toggle between the two different operative
modes described in the following paragraphs. The mnemonic label associated to the
F1 is Bat (abbreviation of batch).
Operative modes:
•
INSERT MODE – this is the common data entry mode and will reflect the
operative mode of the system (Quantity Mode, Simple Data Input Mode). All data
scanned via barcode or entered on the keyboard will be batched in the persistent
memory. Functions keys F2 - F4 maintain their programmed functions.
•
SCROLL MODE – in this mode the user can see and can delete previously
inserted data. The action of the function keys changes to reflect the different
user mode. It will be:

5.17 16-KEY POWERSCAN M8300-DK
DISPLAY AND KEYPAD PARAMETERS
5.17.1
16-key Keyboard Data Format Enable/Disable
The default Data Format is configured in the scanner system, and valid for all
PowerScan models. They will be applied to the read barcode by the scanner. This is
the typical method of configuration for all M8300 models, including the M8300-DK.
Therefore, the Keyboard Data Format on the DK model does not overwrite or
substitute for the default Data Format, but is potentially additional.
On the M8300-DK the following configuration scenarios are available:
Keyboard Data Format= Disabled
•
Scanner Data Header/Terminator = not null
Formatting is applied identically to a label read or data input from the
keyboard (as programmed with Scanner Data Header/Terminator on page
146). Keypad Data Header/Terminator will be ignored in this case.
Keyboard Data Format= Enabled
•
Scanner Data Header/Terminator = not null
Scanner Data Header/Terminator formatting is applied only to data received
from a scanned barcode label (see page 146).
Keypad Data Header/Terminator formatting is applied only to data input from
the keypad (see page 148).
In all the above cases Scanner Code ID and Scanner Code Length are not affected.
NOTE: This configuration item is part of the scanner configuration but is applied to
the whole system. The configuration does not overwrite the default Data Format, but
is additional.
193
POWERSCAN™ D8330/M8300/M8300-DK
5.17.2
Scanner Code ID
The default Data Format is valid for all M8300 models. Code Identifer and Code len
TX (on pages 71,76 in this manual) are also valid for DK models. The item
configuration is part of the cradle configuration and is applied to the scanner system.
Optionally, the DK 16-key scanner can be set for:
•
Scanner Code ID
•
Scanner Code Len TX
(with the same optional values as for standard formatting)
Differently from the other DK formatting, these two configuration items have priority
over the corresponding standard formatting, and hide or substitute for them.
As a result the M8300-DK can have the following configuration scenarios:
Scanner Code ID = Disable
The settings from the standard Code ID on page 71 will be used (if programmed).
Scanner Code ID = any different value from Disable (option 1,2,3 – Datalogic
standard, AIM standard, or custom)
Use the specific DK Scanner Code ID instead of the standard Code ID. DK Scanner
Code ID will be applied and will take priority over any standard Code ID settings,
even if programmed.
5.17.3
Scanner Code Length
The behavior of Scanner Code Length is similar to that described above for Scanner
Code ID.
As a result the M8300-DK can have the following configuration scenarios:
Scanner Code Length = Disable
The settings from the standard Code Len TX on page 76 will be used (if
programmed).
Scanner Code Length = any different value from Disable (variable digit format,
fixed digit format)
Use the specific DK Scanner Code Length instead of the standard Code Len TX.
Scanner Code Length will be applied and will take priority over any standard Code
Len TX settings, even if programmed.
NOTE: Both of these configuration items are part of the scanner configuration but are
applied to the whole system. The configuration item overwrites the default Data
Format .

16-KEY DK MESSAGE FORMATTING
The general Data Format shown remains valid for the Powerscan M8300 DK with
display and 16-key keypad. In addition, it also offers an extended message
formatting.
The table below describes conventions and definitions used in the examples on the
following page. In both the table and in the examples, formatting items valid only for
the 16-key model are shown in italics. The prefix C means programmed from the
standard Data Format parameters (beginning on page 69) and the prefix S means it
is programmed from the 16-key Display and Keypad Parameters (Data Format
section beginning on page 139).
[ S Header]
The optional Header programmed from Display and Keypad
Parameters. It is additional to Header programmed from
general Data Format.
It can be:
o
[ Scanner Data Header]
or
o
[ Keypad Data Header]
depending on whether data is read from a barcode or
typed on the keypad.
[ S Terminator]
The optional Terminator programmed from Display and
Keypad Parameters. It is additional to Terminator
programmed from general Data Format.
It can be:
o

POWERSCAN™ D8330/M8300/M8300-DK
6.3
MESSAGES FROM HOST TO READER
The general format to enable the Scanner for a 2 way communication is:
[Scanner_Addr] [Scanner_Addr_delimiter]
MESSAGE [CR]
NOTE:
•
If you have enabled the Scanner Address Stamping or the Scanner Address
Delimiter, you must specify them in every message.
The format for other asynchronous messages is:
[Scanner_Addr] [Scanner_Addr_delimiter] [DC2] MESSAGE [CR]
where DC2 is ASCII 0x12 (^R) character.
•
If you have not enabled the Scanner Address Stamping or the Scanner Address
Delimiter, you must not specify them. In this case all messages will be implicitly
addressed to the 'binded' Scanner of the cradle directly connected to the serial
line.
•
The Scanner can only receive messages if two-way mode is enabled. (See par.
5.9.4, “Transmission Mode”, the command is on page 180).
•
Messages cannot start with '$+' because they would be interpreted as a
configuration command.
•
You can send a message to the Scanner only while it is on. This happens when
it has sent a message to the host and the radio timeout has not yet expired. (See
par. 5.9.1, "Radio Protocol Timeout"; command is on page 130).
•
If you want to control the Scanner's beeper from the host, you will also probably
want to disable the good transmission beep that is emitted when the code is
received from the cradle. (See command on page 86).
The message field can store plain text and escape sequences.
•
Escape sequences are interpreted as commands.
•
Plain text is directly printed on the display. If writing beyond the end of line, the
display does not wrap automatically. Extra characters are ignored. Control
characters are not interpreted (i.e. LF, FF, etc.).

NOTES:
•
Since CR is used as the message terminator, you must use ESC [ G or ESC E to
print a CR.
•
The cursor row position is not affected by the currently selected font. The
display always has 4 rows, so when writing with the large font, actually two rows
are written to: the current one and the one below it. You will need two ESC E
commands to step from one row to the next when using the large font.
•
The cursor column position is affected by the currently selected font. Therefore,
column 6 is 36 pixels from the left border only if you last selected the 6x8 font;
otherwise it could be 48 or 72 pixels from the left border.

MESSAGES FROM SCANNER COMMAND KEYS
PowerScan M8300 keypad
™
The PowerScan M8300 series scanners with display have 3 command keys that
can each be associated with a character to send to the host.
By pressing the keys on the scanner, the associated character with its relative
message formatting is sent to the Host. For example, keys can be used to select
items from a menu sent to the scanner display by the application program.
The general format is:
[Header] [Scanner_Addr] [Scanner_Addr_delimiter] ] [Cradle_Addr] [Cradle_Addr_delimiter]
[Time stamp] [Ts_delimiter] [Code ID] [Code Length] KeyID [Terminator]
[Items in square brackets are optional.]
The messages are handled by the system as if they were barcodes, that's why KeyID
can have so many fields appended to it. If in your application there is some chance of
reading a 1-char barcode identical to KeyID, the way you can distinguish between
the two is to enable the Code ID: The KeyID is the only 1-character long EAN 8
code.
Refer to par. 5.3 for a compete description of the optional message fields in square
brackets.
The default characters associated with each key (KeyID) are shown in the following
table:

HOST CONFIGURATION STRINGS
In this section we provide a description of how to modify the device configuration
using serial strings sent from the Host.
This method requires the RS-232 interface.
The device configuration can be changed by receiving commands from the Host
through the serial interface. When this method is used, the programming sequence
format is the following:
$+
Command
$-
CR
Carriage return character (0D Hex.)
Exit and Save configuration
Character sequence in following tables
Enter configuration environment
Example:
Multiple command programming sequence:
$+
BG1 BH0
AC410132
$-
CR
Carriage return character (0D Hex.)
Exit and save new configuration
Matrix 2/5 3 bars: no check digit,
variable length code from 1 to 32 characters
Beeper tone 1
Beeper low intensity
Enter configuration environment
Each configuration parameter setting removes the condition previously active for that
parameter.
NOTE
212
The device buffer can contain about 400 characters. If your
programming string goes over this value, you must split it into separate
groups and send each group after a delay of at least 3 seconds to give
the reader time to empty the buffer and interpret the commands.
