Step 3: Read a Setup barcode. The BCST-20 Barcode Scanner
will response three beeps (tone ascending from low to
high), and its LED indicator will flash purple.
For Example:
Enable Codabar
Step 4: Exit the Setting Mode. The BCST-20 Barcode Scanner will
response three beeps (tone descending from high to low),
and its LED indicator will not flash purple and power off.
Note: When any setup error occurs, the BCST-20 Barcode
Scanner will respond with a long beep (low tone), and its
LED indicator will flash purple.

Enter the Setting Mode
For the scanner to enter the setting mode, you must have it read the
"Enter Setup" barcode, which will be located at the bottom of almost
every page of this manual.
The BCST-20 Barcode Scanner will respond with three beeps (tone
descending from high to low), and its LED indicator becomes purple
and go off quickly after reading the barcode.
Enter Setup
For setting scanner parameters, see "Read a Setup Barcode" below.
Exit the Setting Mode with Save
For the scanner to exit the setting mode, you must have it read the
"Exit with Save" barcode, which will be located at the bottom of almost
every page of this manual.
Just like reading the "Enter Setup" barcode, the scanner will respond
with three beeps (tone ascending from low to high) after reading the
barcode.
Exit with Save
Exit the Setting Mode without Save
If you want to exit the setting mode without saving any changes, you
must have the scanner read the "Exit without Save" barcode.
Just like reading the "Enter Setup" barcode, the scanner will respond
with three beeps (tone ascending from low to high) after reading the
barcode.
Exit without Save
9
Restore Factory Defaults
"Restore Factory Defaults" is a special barcode. The BCST-20
Barcode Scanner will respond with a short beep (high tone) after
reading this barcode. At this time, the scanner system could restore
factory defaults, and no need to read "Exit with Save" barcode again.
Restore Factory
Note: Most of setting mode have restore factory defaults selection.
The factory default value for each setting is indicated by an asterisk
"*".
You could use this barcode at the following status:
1. The scanner doesn’t work. For example, it can not read barcodes.
2. You forget the settings what you did to the scanner before, and you
don't want to be affected by the settings when you use the scanner.
3. After using a function which is not to be used usually in the scanner.
Check Software Version
If you want to know the software version of BCST-20, should read the
‘Enter Setup’ and ‘Output Software Version’ barcode:
Enter Setup
Output Software Version
Checking the software version is done at the enter setup mode, so
after output the software version, need to read ‘Exit without Save’
barcode.
Exit without Save
10
Save Custom Settings
1. You may change factory defaults, and customize some functions
suitable for your own applications when you use BCST-20, you must
read the ‘Enter Setup’ Function barcode you want to customize ‘Save
Custom Settings’ ‘Exit with Save’ barcodes.
Enter Setup
Save Custom Settings
Restore Customs Settings
Exit with Save
2. If you want to restore to custom settings after resetting the barcode
scanner, just need to read ‘Enter Setup’ ‘Restore Custom Settings’
‘Exit with Save’ barcodes as above.

1.1 Battery
The scanner is powered by 1500mAh chargeable Lithium batteries.
The batteries can support the scanner work continuously for 60 hours,
or read 56000 barcodes (read an EAN-13 barcode per 5s).
1.1.1 Mounting the battery (charging)
1. Hold the scanner face down in one hand.
2. Insert USB cable for charging.
1.1.2 How to operate BCST-20 Barcode Scanner
Turn on the scanner
Press the Power key for about 2 seconds. The scanner will respond
with a long beep (high tone), and its LED indicator will flash.
Turn off the scanner
Press the Power key for about 3 seconds. The scanner will respond
with two short beeps (high tone) and the LED indicator will be turned
off.
1.1.3 Auto Power Off
In order to conserve battery power, the user can specify the time
interval for the scanner to automatically turn off. By default, it is set to
be 10 minutes.
Enter Auto Power Off
5min
(*)10min

eg.: Set 20 minutes for the scanner to be automatically turn off.
1. Read the "Enter Setup" barcode;
2. Read the "Enter Auto Power Off" barcode;
3. Read the "20min" barcode;
4. Read the "Exit with Save" barcode.
Note: If you want to keep the scanner power on all the time, read "Exit
Auto Power Off" in stead of step 3 and 4.
Enter Setup
Exit with Save
Exit without Save
1.2 Transmit Buffer
During the 2.4Ghz connection, the BCST-20 Scanner uses a 256KB
memory as a data buffer, and sends the collected data to the host
computer one by one via the 2.4Ghz. Upon reading a barcode
successfully, the scanner responds with one short beep and its LED
indicator becomes green and goes off quickly. However, the host
computer may not receive the data immediately if getting out of range.
With the 256KB transmit buffer, the scanner can ignore the transmission status and keep on reading barcodes until the buffer is full. When
the buffer is full, the scanner will respond with a long beep (low tone),
this reminds the user that the space of buffer is not enough and can
not read barcode any more. Once the Buffer is
14
full, the user should return to the range of 2.4Ghz connection quickly,
the data in the buffer can be sent back to the host computer and
release the space of buffer.
Note: The 256KB transmit buffer on the scanner can hold as many
as 2600 barcodes bases on Code128. You can choose to clear the
data in the buffer every time when you turn on the scanner.
Enable Clear Data in Buffer When
Turn On the Scanner
(*) Disable Clear Data in Buffer When
Turn On the Scanner
Note: You can clear the data in the buffer via enable barcode, you
can also clear the data in the buffer via press the Power key long
time.
After the 2.4Ghz connect successfully, the barcodes in the buffer will
upload to appointed position automatically. You also can setup
upload the barcodes in the buffer or not via reading the following
barcodes. By default, it is enabled.
If you don‘t want to upload the barcodes automatically, you can
setup as disabled, when the 2.4Ghz is connected, the barcodes
won’t upload. You can double click Power key to start uploading the
barcodes.
(*) Enable Auto Uploading
Disable Auto Uploading

1.2.1 Inventory Mode
If you want to keep the barcodes in the buffer of BCST-20 for multiple
uploading, you can choose inventory mode. In inventory mode,
BCST-20 will count the number of the barcodes automatically, and
control the time, position etc. for uploading. Also, you can clear the
barcodes in the buffer after uploading. Following is the setup method:
1. Read ‘Enter Inventory Mode’ barcode to enter into the inventory
mode
Enter Inventory Mode
2. If you want to recover to normal mode, read the ‘Enter Normal
Mode’ barcode
Enter Normal Mode
3. Read the ‘Clear the barcodes in the buffer’ barcode to clear the
barcodes (only suitable for inventory mode)
Clear the barcodes in the buffer
4. Read ‘Data Uploading’ barcode to upload the barcodes in the
buffer (only suitable for inventory mode)

data. If checksum character is included, it should be the last character
of the barcode data. Checksum character is a calculate value bases
on all of the data, and is used to check if the data is correct or not.
Thus, if the scanner is set to "Do Not Verify” and the scanner will
output all the barcode data.
If the scanner is set to "Verify without Output Checksum Character",
and the scanner will check the data based on the last character of the
barcode data. If the check passes, the scanner will output the data
without the checksum character; if the check doesn’t pass, the
scanner will display read failure.
If the scanner is set to "Verify with Output Checksum Character", and
the scanner will check the data based on the last character of the
barcode data. If the check passes, the scanner will output the data
with the checksum character; if the check doesn’t pass, the scanner
will display read failure.
