1.3.2 Charging the Battery
Ensure that you follow the guidelines for battery safety described in 8.2 Battery Safety Guidelines,
page 8-1.
Before using the MC40 for the first time, charge the main battery until the Right light emitting diode (LED)
turns solid green (see Table 1-3 Battery Charge LED Status for charge status indications). To charge the MC40,
use a cable or a cradle with the appropriate power supply. For information about the accessories available for
the MC40, see 7 Accessories, page 7-1.
The MC40 is equipped with a memory backup battery that automatically charges from the fully-charged main
battery. When using the MC40 for the first time, the backup battery requires approximately 36 hours to fully charge.
This is also true any time the backup battery is discharged, which occurs when the main battery is removed for
several hours. The backup battery retains random access memory (RAM) data in memory for at least 10 minutes
(at room temperature) when the MC40’s main battery is removed, when Battery Swap feature is used. When the
MC40 reaches a very low battery state, the combination of main battery and backup battery retains RAM data in
memory for at least 48 hours.

Data Capture
The MC40 offers the following data capture options:
• integrated imager
• integrated digital camera
• Magnetic stripe reader (MSR).
DataWedge is installed and enabled on the MC40 by default.
3.1 Imager
The device with an integrated imager has the following features:
• Omnidirectional reading of a variety of bar code symbologies, including the most popular linear, postal, PDF417,
and 2D matrix code types.
• Advanced intuitive laser aiming cross-hair for easy point-and-shoot operation.
The modules uses digital camera technology to take a digital picture of a bar code, stores the resulting image in its
memory, and executes state-of-the-art software decoding algorithms to extract the data from the image.
Operational Modes
The device with an integrated imager supports two modes of operation, listed below. Activate each mode by
pressing a scan button.
• Decode Mode: In this mode, the device attempts to locate and decode enabled bar codes within its field of view.
The imager remains in this mode as long as the user holds the scan button, or until it decodes a bar code.
To enable Pick List Mode, configure in DataWedge.
• Pick List Mode: This mode allows the user to selectively decode a bar code when more than one bar code is in
the device’s field of view. To accomplish this, move the aiming crosshair over the required bar code to decode
only this bar code. This feature is ideal for pick lists containing multiple bar codes and manufacturing or transport
labels containing more than one bar code type (either 1D or 2D).
3.2 Digital Camera
The device with an integrated camera based bar code scanning solution has the following features:
• Omnidirectional reading of a variety of bar code symbologies, including the most popular linear, postal, QR,
PDF417, and 2D matrix code types.
MN000111A01 - August 2013
3-1
MC40 User Guide
• Cross-hair reticle for easy point-and-shoot operation.
• Picklist mode to decode a particular bar code from many in the field of view.
The solution uses the advanced camera technology to take a digital picture of a bar code, and executes
state-of-the-art software decoding algorithms to extract the data from the image.
3.3 Scanning Considerations
Typically, scanning is a simple matter of aim, scan, and decode where a few quick trial efforts master it. However,
consider the following to optimize scanning performance:
• Range
– Any scanning device decodes well over a particular working range — minimum and maximum distances from
the bar code. This range varies according to bar code density and scanning device optics.
– Scanning within range brings quick and constant decodes; scanning too close or too far away prevents decodes.
Move the scanner closer and farther away to find the right working range for the bar codes being scanned.
• Angle
– Scan angle is important for promoting quick decodes. When laser beams reflect directly back into the scanner
from the bar code, this specular reflection can “blind” the scanner.
– To avoid this, scan the bar code so that the beam does not bounce directly back. But do not scan at too
sharp an angle; the scanner needs to collect scattered reflections from the scan to make a successful decode.
Practice quickly shows what tolerances to work within.
• Hold the device farther away for larger symbols.
• Move the device closer for symbols with bars that are close together.
Scanning procedures depend on the application and device configuration. An application may use different
scanning procedures from those described.

WLAN
Wireless local area networks (WLANs) allow the MC40 to communicate wirelessly inside a building. Before using
the MC40 on a WLAN, the facility must be set up with the required hardware to run the WLAN (sometimes known
as infrastructure). The infrastructure and the MC40 must both be properly configured to enable this communication.
Refer to the documentation provided with the infrastructure (access points (APs), access ports, switches, Radius
servers, etc.) for instructions on how to set up the infrastructure.
Once the infrastructure is set up to enforce the chosen WLAN security scheme, use the Wireless & networks
settings to configure the MC40 to match the security scheme.
Turn off Wi-Fi when not using it, to extend the life of the battery.
The Status bar displays icons that indicate Wi-Fi network availability and Wi-Fi status. See 2.2 Status Bar,
page 2-2 for more information.

Bluetooth
Bluetooth-equipped devices can communicate without wires, using frequency-hopping spread spectrum (FHSS)
radio frequency (RF) to transmit and receive data in the 2.4 GHz Industry Scientific and Medical (ISM) band
(802.15.1). Bluetooth wireless technology is specifically designed for short-range (10 meters (32.8 feet) )
communication and low power consumption.
Devices with Bluetooth capabilities can exchange information (e.g., files, appointments, and tasks) with other
Bluetooth enabled devices such as printers, access points, and other mobile devices.
5.1 Adaptive Frequency Hopping
Adaptive Frequency Hopping (AFH) is a method of avoiding fixed frequency interferers, and can be used with
Bluetooth voice. All devices in the piconet (Bluetooth network) must be AFH-capable in order for AFH to work.
There is no AFH when connecting and discovering devices. Avoid making Bluetooth connections and discoveries
during critical 802.11b communications. AFH for Bluetooth consists of four main sections:
• Channel Classification - A method of detecting an interference on a channel-by-channel basis, or pre-defined
channel mask.
• Link Management - Coordinates and distributes the AFH information to the rest of the Bluetooth network.
• Hop Sequence Modification - Avoids interference by selectively reducing the number of hopping channels.
• Channel Maintenance - A method for periodically re-evaluating the channels.
When AFH is enabled, the Bluetooth radio “hops around” (instead of through) the 802.11b high-rate channels.
AFH coexistence allows Motorola Enterprise Tablets to operate in any infrastructure.
The Bluetooth radio in this device operates as a Class 2 device power class. The maximum output power is 2.5 mW
and the expected range is 10 meters (32.8 ft.). A definition of ranges based on power class is difficult to obtain due
to power and device differences, and whether one measures open space or closed office space.
It is not recommended to perform Bluetooth wireless technology inquiry when high rate 802.11b operation
is required.
5.2 Security
The current Bluetooth specification defines security at the link level. Application-level security is not specified.
This allows application developers to define security mechanisms tailored to their specific need. Link-level security
occurs between devices, not users, while application-level security can be implemented on a per-user basis. The
Bluetooth specification defines security algorithms and procedures required to authenticate devices, and if needed,
encrypt the data flowing on the link between the devices. Device authentication is a mandatory feature of Bluetooth
while link encryption is optional.
Pairing of Bluetooth devices is accomplished by creating an initialization key used to authenticate the devices and
create a link key for them. Entering a common personal identification number (PIN) in the devices being paired
generates the initialization key. The PIN is never sent over the air. By default, the Bluetooth stack responds with
no key when a key is requested (it is up to user to respond to the key request event). Authentication of Bluetooth
MN000111A01 - August 2013
5-1
MC40 User Guide
devices is based-upon a challenge-response transaction. Bluetooth allows for a PIN or passkey used to create other
128-bit keys used for security and encryption. The encryption key is derived from the link key used to authenticate
the pairing devices. Also worthy of note is the limited range and fast frequency hopping of the Bluetooth radios that
makes long-distance eavesdropping difficult.
Recommendations are:
• Perform pairing in a secure environment
• Keep PIN codes private and do not store the PIN codes in the device
• Implement application-level security.
5.3 Bluetooth Profiles
The MC40 supports the following Bluetooth services:
• Generic Access Profile (GAP) - Use for device discovery and authentication.
• Service Discovery Protocol (SDP) - Handles the search for known and specific services as well as general services.
• Serial Port Profile (SPP) - Sets up a virtual serial port and connects two Bluetooth enabled devices. For example,
connecting the MC40 to a printer.
• Human Interface Device Profile (HID) - Allows Bluetooth keyboards, pointing devices, gaming devices and
remote monitoring devices to connect to the MC40.
• Object Push Profile (OPP) - Allows the MC40 to push and pull objects to and from a push server.
• Dial-up Networking (DUN) - Allows the MC40 to access the Internet and other dial-up services using a Bluetooth
enabled mobile phone.
• Headset Profile (HSP) - Allows a Bluetooth headset to communicate with the MC40.
• Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) - Allows the MC40 to stream stereo-quality audio to a wireless
headset or wireless stereo speakers.
• Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP) - Allows the MC40 to control televisions, hi-fi equipment, etc.
5.4 Bluetooth Power States
The Bluetooth radio is off by default.
• Suspend — When the MC40 goes into suspend mode, the Bluetooth radio turns off.
• Resume — When the MC40 resumes, Bluetooth turns on if it was on prior to suspend.
• Airplane Mode — When the MC40 is placed in Airplane Mode, the Bluetooth radio turns off. When in Airplane
Mode, the Bluetooth radio can be turned back on if desired.
5.5 Bluetooth Radio Power
Turn off the Bluetooth radio to save power or if entering an area with radio restrictions (e.g., an airplane). When
the radio is off, other Bluetooth devices cannot see or connect to the device. Turn on the Bluetooth radio to
exchange information with other Bluetooth devices (within range). Communicate only with Bluetooth radios
in close proximity.
