The LS 3070 Cordless Scanner
The Freedom of Cordless Scanning
The LS 3070 is a revolutionary, cordless approach to capturing bar coded data.
The scanner communicates with your host computer through a low-power
radio transmission instead of through a cable. With the LS 3070, you are free to
scan and transmit without a physical cable to limit your movement, from as far
away as 30 - 50 feet (9 - 15 meters), depending on your environment. This lets
you take the scanner to where the work is, whether on the loading dock, the
plant floor, the warehouse, or the POS checkout area.
The scanning system has three main components: the cordless scanner, the
base/charger interface unit, and a cable to interface with the host device.

LS 3070 Product Reference Guide: The LS 3070 Cordless Scanner
The LS 3070 Scanner
Housed in rugged, durable plastic, the LS 3070 scanner combines accurate,
aggressive bar code scanning with solid state dependability. Its ergonomic
design ensures comfortable use for extended periods of time.
This scanner combines premium visible laser diode (VLD) scanning
performance, reading color bar codes and symbols printed on all substrates,
with advanced decode and RF transceiver capabilities.
The scanning element can be any of a wide variety of configurations:
• Standard - for most Class II scanning applications, in which symbol
density (5 to 55 mil) and range (0 - 35 in.) fall within relatively normal
ranges.
• Long Range (LR) - for Class II applications with short range reading on
medium density symbols and long range reading on low density
symbols.
• Advanced Long Range (ALR) - for long range reading on medium and
low-density symbols, optimized by the increased power of the Class IIIA
laser.
• Extra Long Range (XLR) - for scanning ranges of up to 180 inches (457 cm)
on 55 mil symbols, also using a Class IIIA laser.
• High Visibility (HV) - for scanning ranges up to 33 inches (86 cm) on 55
mil symbols, and ambient sunlight up to 10,000 ft. candles, using a Class
IIIA laser.

Rechargeable Battery Pack
In the handle of the scanner, there is a rechargeable NiCad battery pack. This
provides all power to the scanner during normal operation. It provides 360 mA
hours, which is sufficient for normal operation during an 8-hour shift.
When fully depleted, the battery module can be recharged to full charge within
two hours, with the LS 3070 inserted into the RL 470 base/charger unit.
Alternatively, the battery module can be recharged in the Universal Four-Slot
Charger/Recharger within 8 hours.

The Base/Charger Unit
The base/charger unit has two primary functions. First, it is the base station
interface that manages the flow of information from the scanner to the host
device. Second, it is a charging stand which charges the scanner’s battery
module (located in the handle) and also holds the scanner securely when it is
not in use. An LED indicates the status of battery charging.

The base/charger unit communicates via radio transmission with the scanner
to receive bar code data from the scanner, confirm receipt of data back to the
scanner, and exchange configuration information. The base/charger unit also
formats the scanned bar code data as required and then transmits it to the host
system through the attached cable.

Setup
Unpacking
Remove the LS 3070, the RL 470 base/charger unit, and the host interface cable
from its packing and inspect each for evidence of physical damage. If any
equipment was damaged in transit, call the Symbol Support Center at the
number in the front matter.
KEEP THE PACKING. It is the approved shipping container and should be
used if you ever need to return your equipment for servicing.
Connecting the Cable to the Base/Charger
Unit
The cable connects to the base/charger in the same way but to each host
terminal differently. For complete details per terminal type, refer to the RL 470
Base Station Interface Guide.
Installation Tip — Optimizing RF
Performance
The LS 3070 scanning system is equipped with a low power 2.4 Ghz radio.
Depending on environmental conditions, the LS 3070 can have an RF
transmission range of 30 - 50 feet (9 - 15 meters).
Where environmental objects affect RF range and performance, do the
following when you install the LS 3070 scanning system. This will help assure
peak performance.
2-1
LS 3070 Product Reference Guide: Setup
The RL 470 base station is a charger, host interface, and — significantly —
receiving station for RF transmission. Therefore, do not install the RL 470
inaccessibly under a table or buried in a desk drawer. At a minimum, mount
the RL 470 on a table or desk top. For optimum RF performance, especially in
difficult environments, mount the RL 470 on a wall as high as possible. But
keep in mind the limits of interface cable length and charging accessibility.
Proper base positioning gives you the best possible range and coverage
performance from the LS 3070 cordless scanning system.
Inserting the Scanner Into and Removing
Scanner from Base/Charger
To insert the scanner into the base/charger:
1. First, place the nose to the scanner into the large rectangular receptacle of
the base/charger.
2. Then place the scanner handle into the opening of the smaller, latched
receptacle and press down firmly until the bottom of the handle seats
snugly into the receptacle and engages the latch.
Caution
Use of excessive force in placing the scanner into the base can
damage the charging contacts on the shoe of the scanner or in the
receptacle of the base. Such damage can interfere with or prevent
charging of the scanner’s batteries by the base.
3. To remove the scanner from the base/charger, grasp the handle of the
scanner and lift the bottom of the handle out of the latched receptacle,
thereby freeing the scanner from the base.
Caution
It is important to remove the scanner handle-first. Trying to remove the scanner nose-first can break latch in the base receptacle .
2-2
LS 3070 Product Reference Guide: Setup
Charging the Battery
Before its first use, the LS 3070 batteries must be charged. To do so:
• Connect the power supply to the power input port on the front panel of
the RL 470 base/charger, shown in Figure 1-3: RL 470 Base/Charger Unit on
page 1-4.
• Connect the power supply to a receptacle supplying AC power of the
proper voltage level.
• Then insert the scanner into the base/charger cradle, so that the nose of
the scanner and tip of the handle fit snugly into the receptacles. Check the
charge status indicator (blinking = fully charged) for full charge, which
occurs within two hours. When fully charged, proceed with pairing.

Pairing the Scanner with the Base/Charger
The wireless “connection” between the two is the low power radio
transmission through RF transceivers in the both the scanner and base/
charger. The actual communication consists of bidirectional message packets.
However, the scanner and base/charger must be paired for this communication
to work between the two devices.
Assigning Address to Base/Charger
First, the base/charger must be assigned an address, with a value between 01
and 7E. Each base station must have a unique address.
2-3
LS 3070 Product Reference Guide: Setup
Note: When setting the address of the base, you
automatically set the initial frequency on which the
base and the scanner communicate. In order to
minimize possible interference between systems,
bases which are close to each other should be
assigned sequential addresses.
Set the address through setting two rotary dials, located by opening a panel on
the base/charger’s underside. Turn the base/charger upside down, open the
panel, and notice two rotary dials.

The first is a 10-position (0 to 9, high order address digit) and the second a 16position (0 to F, low order address digit). Digits are printed sequentially around
each circle. Do not use positions 8 and 9. Setting the 10-position switch to 8 or 9 will
result in an error beep (5 long low tones) during pairing.
Set the desired address with a small screwdriver; possible addresses are listed
on the next page. Note that too large a screwdriver can damage the dials. When
the address is set, close the panel, turn the base/charger rightside up again.

Pairing Scanner with Base/Charger
To pair the scanner with the base/charger:
• Scan the PAIRING bar code below or the bar code on the RL 470 base.
PAIRING
• Then insert the scanner into the base/charger’s cradle. You have 15
seconds to do this, or there will be error beeps (4 beeps = unsuccessful
pairing or base not powered). Note that you cannot scan data until this
pairing is complete.
2-5
LS 3070 Product Reference Guide: Setup

• At that time, through the scanner’s contact shoe, there is an exchange of
information (addressing, RF channels, etc.) between the scanner and the
base/charger’s cradle. This occurs in less than a second.
• After that exchange, the scanner and base/charger are paired. Successful
pairing is indicated by a warble beep; failure, or unsuccessful link, is
indicated by a Lo Lo Lo Lo beep.
Setting Transmission Frequency
Each scanner/base pair communicates on one of a number of channel
frequencies, which varies by country. In most countries, there are 80 available
channels (numbered 2 through 81); in France, there are only 9 channeles
(numbered 46 through 54).
The initial transmission frequency is determined by the base’s unique address,
so neighboring LS 3070 systems operate on different channels. This allows
them to transmit simultaneously without interfering with each other. Channel
separation is optimal between sequential base addresses, so base units closest
to each other should be assigned sequential base addresses if possible. (Note
that data is transmitted between a scanner and base so quickly that a number
of different LS 3070 systems can normally operate on the same channel without
noticeable interference.)
2-6
LS 3070 Product Reference Guide: Setup
Occasionally, there can be excessive interference on a channel from some other
source of radio transmissions. In this case, the default channel of a system can
be changed using the parameter codes for Set Transmission Frequency. If you
find a particular scanner/base pair has trouble communicating over a normal
operating distance, try setting different transmission frequencies to see if
performance improves. (The LS 3070 system changes channels automatically if
it encounters interference as much as 80% of the time over a continuous 5minute period.)
Note: To set trasmission frequency correctly, be sure to
use the correct Select Channel Number bar code for
your country, and to set a channel within the
allowable range.
Installing a Magstripe Reader
If desired, install a magstripe reader. This may be done before or after pairing.
1. Remove the blank plug in the magstripe connection port on the base/
charger, and then plug the magstripe reader’s cable into this port, as
illustrated below.
2. The purpose of the blank plug is to protect the base/charger from
accidental damage that can be caused by static electrical discharge into the
magstripe connection port. Keep this plug in the port whenever the magstripe
reader is not connected.

Scanning with the LS 3070
1. Ready
Before starting to scan bar codes for data collection, make sure:
• The base station is connected to the host device.
• The battery has been charged.
• The scanner is paired with the base/charger.
2. Test
Aim the scanner toward a bar code and press the trigger. When you press the
trigger, the scanning beam is energized.
3. Scan
Make sure the symbol you want to scan is within the proper scanning range.
(See Decode Zones beginning on page 3-6.)
Aim and press the trigger.
• The scan beam and red SCAN LED will light for about 3 seconds, or until
a successful decode.
The scanner has read the symbol when:
• You hear a beep.
• The green DECODE LED lights.
The LED stays green for up to one second if the trigger is down or disappears
if you release the trigger. The scanner powers down after a successful decode.
3-1
LS 3070 Product Reference Guide: Scanning with the LS 3070
If the scanning attempt ends in 4 error beeps, any of these may be true:
• Scanner is out of transmission range
• Scanner and base/charger are not paired
• Base/charger is not powered.
Hold at an Angle
Do not hold the scanner directly over the bar code. In this position, light can
bounce back into the scanner's exit window and prevent a successful decode.
Scan the Entire Symbol
• Your scan beam must cross every bar and space on the symbol.
• The larger the symbol, the farther away you should hold the scanner.
• Hold the scanner closer for symbols with bars that are close together.
• A short high-tone beep indicates a good decode.

Scanning Transmission Range
RF Communication Errors
RF communication errors occur when the scanner is out of range from the base
during a scan data transmission attempt. An error is indicated by 6 beeps after
a bar code is scanned, although the bar code data appears on the host display.
This happens when the base receives the bar code data but the scanner did
NOT get the HIF response from the base, and therefore timed out.
The base reported an RF communication error because the NOMAD protocol
was not completed before timeout, however, transmitted the bar code data to
the host. Since the data has been sent, normal communications must be reestablished.
Restoring Normal RF Communications
Move the scanner closer to the base station so the transceivers can
communicate with each other better. Then re-scan the bar code. The scanner
sounds a good decode beep but the base does not display the bar code data,
because the data was already transmitted on the previous scan.
Resume normal scanning.

LS 3070 Product Reference Guide: Scanning with the LS 3070
What If ...
Nothing happens when you follow the operating
instructions?
You should
• Check that the power supply is attached to the base/charger.
• Check for loose cable connections at the base/charger and host device.
• Check the scanner’s battery pack.
• Make sure the device is programmed to read the type of bar code you
want to scan.
• Check the symbol to make sure it is not defaced.
• Try scanning similar symbols of the same code type.
• Check that the gas tank is not exhausted.*
• Make sure the scanner and base/charger have been successfully paired.
• Be sure you’re within the proper scanning and transmission range.
If you get frequent Transmit Errors (error beeps after decode):
• Check that you are within scanning transmit range. (See Scanning
Transmission Range on page 3-4.)
• Check that the scanner is successfully paired with the base/charger.
• Check that the base/charger is powered up and that its cable connections
are secure.
Note: If after performing these checks the symbol still
does not scan, contact your distributor or call the
Symbol Support Center. See Symbol Support Center
on page About-ii for the telephone number.
* The gas tank limits the amount of time the laser remains on within a given
period to conform to the requirements of specific laser output classifications.

Chapter 4 Maintenance and
Specifications
Maintenance
Cleaning the exit window is the only maintenance required. A dirty window
may affect scanning accuracy.
• Do not allow any abrasive material to touch the window.
• Remove any dirt particles with a damp cloth.
• Wipe the window using a tissue moistened with ammonia/water.
• Do not spray water or other cleaning liquids directly into the window.
Recharging the Battery
As a charging stand, the base/charger recharges batteries in the scanner when
the scanner is in the cradle. The status of the scanner battery module
determines the charge rate. If the battery module is at full charge, the base/
charger supplies a trickle charge. If the battery module is at less than full
charge, there is a programmed charge. Note that the scanner can be removed
from the base/charger at any time.
When necessary, recharge the batteries. To do so:
• Connect the power supply to the power input port on the front panel of
the RL 470 base/charger, as illustrated below.
• Connect the power supply to a receptacle supplying AC power of the
proper voltage level.
• Then place the scanner into the base/charger cradle, so that the nose of
the scanner and tip of the handle fit snugly into the receptacles. Check the
charge status indicator (blinking = fully charged) for full charge, which
occurs within two hours. However, the scanner can be used on less than
full charge.

Charge Status LED Indications
On the base/charger, there is a red LED indicator which uses flashing patterns
to indicate the current charger status. The red Charge Status LED indicates the
following conditions:
• RED LED OFF — The scanner is not properly inserted or the battery is
not functioning properly.
• RED LED blinking slowly (1/8 sec. ON, 3/8 sec. OFF) — Battery charge
is pending. This can occur if the batttery temperature is too high or low
or if the battery is deeply discharged. After several minutes, normal
charging should begin.
• RED LED ON — The battery is actively charging. Charging will complete
in less than 2 hours.
• RED LED blinking rapidly (1/8 sec. ON, 1/8 sec. OFF) — Battery
charging is complete.

Connecting to a Host Device
In most cases, connecting your LS 3070’s base station to your host terminal is a
very simple operation. You need only plug the cable into your host. Typical
configurations are shown on the following pages. Some POS keyboards require
more intricate installation instructions. Those begin on page 5-6.
We recommend that you disconnect the power supply from the base station
prior to connecting or disconnecting cables.
Refer to Interfaces beginning on page 5-23 for the proper interface cable
assembly.
After you've connected your base station to your host terminal, refer to Chapter
6: Programming for programming instructions.

To connect the base station, plug the cable into the appropriate port on the rear
of the IBM 4683/84, 4693/94.
For the IBM 4693, port 9C (which replaces port 17 on the 4683/84) is the
appropriate port for connecting the base station. Note that port 9C is
compatible with ports 9A and 9B, which have identical assignments of
connector pins.
For the IBM 4694, there is one single scanner attachment port, 9E, which is
equivalent in pin assignments to ports 9A, 9B, and 9C on the IBM 4693.
Note that this variation of port assignments over this range of models
represents electrical and mechanical changes only. For the IBM 4683/84 and
4693/94, communications between the attached scanning system and the

NCR 2151 Installation
1. Be sure the NCR 2151 terminal is powered-down. Remove the terminal's
front grille by loosening the two (2) screws (turn clockwise) that fasten the
grille down to the front of the terminal. Fully extend the card slide
assembly. Disengage the catches holding the board assemblies in place.
Then gently pull out the processor board (top board) until the connectors
at the rear of the board become visible. To prevent the board from falling
through the card slide assembly, it may be necessary to support the board
assembly during this phase.
2. Locate the integrated circuit designated U109 on the processor board. Note
U109's orientation by locating its pin 1; this is crucial for the replacement
that follows.
Note: U109 is socketed. Using a small screwdriver,
remove U109 from its mating socket. Replace the
part with the Terminal Retrofit Circuit provided
with the installation kit. Be sure that the
replacement part is oriented in the same direction
as the part it replaces.
3. On the far left side of the processor board, carefully remove the connector
marked I/O P7 from its mate (J7). Take the K8 T-board connector (p/n 2102977-01) from the shipping container, and connect J1 to J7 on the processor
board. This connection mates in one direction only. As the connectors are
not keyed, be sure the connecting pair is properly aligned.
4. Locate the J3 connector on the rear right side of the processor board. If a
cable mates to J3, remove it and note its orientation, as it must be returned
to the same position later.
5-18
LS 3070 Product Reference Guide: Interface Guide
5. Locate the end of the RL 470 base station cable that branches into a “Y”.
Slide that end under the board assembly inside the register. Leave enough
slack to make the connection required in the next few steps.
6. Mate the RL 470 base station cable “Y” branch ending in a 2 x13 female boxtype connector to P1 on the K8 T-board. Connector P1 is the middle
connector on the T-Board.
Note: Connector position 1 of the mating pair is keyed.
7. Locate connector P2 on the K8 T-board; it is the top connector on the board.
Mate P2 with the ribbon connector marked I/O P7. Be sure the ribbon
connector label I/O P7 faces up. Also be sure the left and right edges of the
two connectors line up. This check is very important, as the connectors are
not keyed.
8. Mate the RL 470 base station cable “Y” branch ending in a 2X6 female boxtype connector to P1 on the T-board (p/n 21-03428-01). Connector P1 is the
middle connector on the T-board.
Note: The connector position 1 of the mating pair is
keyed.
9. If J3 on the processor board had a cable mating to it, that cable must now
mate with connector P2 on the T-board (p/n 21-03428-01).
Note: The cable must have the same orientation it had
when removed from J3 on the processor board. If
no cable was mating with J3, then P2 on the
T-board (p/n 21-03428-01) is left unconnected.
10. Carefully slide the board assembly to its original position in the card slide.
Then return the card slide to its retracted position. Check that all cables
mating to the board assemblies are still firmly seated in position.
11. Locate the supplied cable fastener hardware. Using the hardware, secure
the RL 470 base station cable to one of the cable fastening posts located at
the bottom front edge of the terminal housing. Replace the grille removed
at the beginning of this procedure. The RL 470 base station cable should be
positioned so that it fits through a slot located at the bottom of the grille.

Chapter 6
Programming
Programming Overview
Before programming, follow the instructions in the Chapter 2: Setup and Chapter
5: Interface Guide.
Programming occurs through use of bar code menus. Not all parameters,
however, apply to your specific host. For example, if you have an OCIA
terminal, RS-232C parameters such as baud rate and parity will not apply.
Simply ignore those parameters not designed for your application. If you're not
sure which parameters apply, refer to the Parameter Selections on page 6-21 for
your specific terminal type.
The first section of this chapter, Parameter Descriptions beginning on page 6-3,
defines parameters and the bar codes necessary to set those parameters.
To customize data for your specific needs, see the Advanced Programmer’s Guide.
Consult the Parameter Descriptions beginning on page 6-3 for explanations of
parameter types; Parameter Selections beginning on page 6-21 shows the
available parameters for various terminal types.
If the default values suit your requirements, all you need to do is scan the SET
DEFAULT bar code. Parameters other than default values can be set by
scanning sequences of bar codes. Chapter 7: Parameter Menus contain all the bar
codes necessary to program the scanner for each parameter selection.
6-1
LS 3070 Product Reference Guide: Programming
Scanning Sequence Examples
In most cases you need only scan one bar code to set a specific parameter. For
example, if you want to set the baud rate to 9600, simply scan the 9600 bar code
listed under Baud Rate. The base station will issue a warble tone, signifying a
successful parameter entry.
If you want to add or change prefixes and suffixes or customize the data
transmission format, you will have to scan several bar codes. This procedure is
described in Parameter Descriptions beginning on page 6-3.
Errors While Scanning
Don't worry if you make an error during a scanning sequence. Merely reenter
the correct parameter.
6-2
LS 3070 Product Reference Guide: Programming
Parameter Descriptions
Set Parameter Defaults
Scanning the SET DEFAULT bar code returns all parameters to the values
listed in the Default Table beginning on page 6-28.
Host Interface Code
Each Interface Cable Assembly defaults to a given host. These assemblies, their
corresponding defaults, and additional bar codes begin in Chapter 7: Parameter
Menus. In some cases, two bar codes may correspond to one interface type; this happens
when different software revisions exist for the same host type. If there are two bar codes
for your host type, try the first bar code; if that does not work, then try the second one.
Code Types
The bar code menu selections enable the scanner to decode any or all of the
following symbologies.
• UPC Versions A and E (EAN 8 and 13)
• Codabar
• Code 39
• Code 39 Full ASCII
• Discrete 2 of 5
• Interleaved 2 of 5
• Code 128
• MSI Plessey
• EAN 128
The scanner will autodiscriminate between all of the above symbologies,
except for Code 39 and Code 39 Full ASCII.
Code Lengths
Code lengths for certain code type (i.e., Code 39, Codabar, etc.) may be set for
any length, one or two discrete lengths, or lengths within a specific range. The
length of a code refers to the number of characters (i.e., human readable
characters) the code contains.
Length Within Range - This option allows you to decode a code type within a
specified range. For example to decode Code 39 characters containing between
4 and 12 characters, first scan Code 39 Length Within Range. Then scan 0, 4, 1
and 2 (single digit numbers must always be preceded by a leading zero).
6-3
LS 3070 Product Reference Guide: Programming
One Discrete Length - This option will allow you to decode only those codes
containing a selected length. For example, if you select D 2 of 5 One Discrete
Length, then scan 1, 4, the only D 2 of 5 codes decoded will be those containing
14 characters
Two Discrete Lengths - This option will allow you to decode only those codes
containing two selected lengths. For example, if you select D 2 of 5 Two
Discrete Lengths, then scan 0, 2, 1, 4, the only D 2 of 5 codes decoded will be
those containing 2 or 14 characters.
Any Length - Scanning this option allows you to decode the selected code type
containing any number of characters. For example, if you scan Codabar Any
Length, you will be able to decode a Codabar symbol containing any number
of characters.
Code 39 Full ASCII
The ASCII character set assigns a code for letters, punctuation marks,
numerals, and most control keystrokes on the keyboard.
The first 32 codes are non-printable and are assigned to keyboard control
characters such as BACKSPACE and RETURN. The other 96 are called
printable codes because all but SPACE and DELETE produce visible
characters.
Code 39 Full ASCII interprets the bar code control character ($ + % /)
preceding a Code 39 symbol and assigns an ASCII character value. For
example, when Code 39 Full ASCII is enabled and a +B is scanned, it will be
interpreted as b, %J as ?, and $H emulates the keystroke BACKSPACE.
Scanning ABC$M will output the keystroke equivalent of ABC ENTER.
The LS 3070 will not autodiscriminate between Code 39 and Code 39 Full
ASCII.
6-4
LS 3070 Product Reference Guide: Programming
Decode Options
Transmit UPC-E/UPC-A Check Digit
Select if decoded UPC symbols are transmitted with or without a check digit.
Convert UPC-E To UPC-A
Use this parameter to convert UPC-E (zero suppressed) decoded data to UPCA format before transmission. After conversion, data will follow UPC format
and be affected by UPC-A programming selections (e.g., Preamble, Check
Digit).
Ean Zero Extend
This parameter adds five leading zeros to decoded EAN-8 symbols to make
them compatible in format to EAN-13 symbols.
Xmit “No Decode” Message
This feature gives you the option to transmit “NR” when a symbol does not
decode. Prefixes and suffixes enabled will be appended around this message.
Decode UPC/EAN Supplemental
Select whether UPC/EAN is decoded with or without supplemental
characters. Supplementals are additionally appended characters (2 or 5)
according to specific code format conventions (e.g., UPC A+2, UPC E+2, EAN
8+2).
If UPC/EAN with supplemental characters is selected, UPC/EAN symbols
without supplemental characters won't be decoded. If UPC/EAN without
supplemental characters is selected and the scanner is presented with a UPC/
EAN plus supplemental symbol, the UPC/EAN will be decoded and the
supplemental characters ignored.
If autodiscrimination is chosen, the LS 3070 will, after additional processing to
ensure a good decode, transmit either. (NOTE: To minimize the risk of invalid
data transmission, it is recommended that you select whether to read or
ignore supplemental characters.)
6-5
LS 3070 Product Reference Guide: Programming
Code 39 Check Digit
When enabled, this parameter checks the integrity of a Code 39 symbol to
ensure it complies with a modulo 43 check digit algorithm.
ITF-14/EAN-13 Conversion
If your terminal supports EAN-13, this feature converts a 14 character I 2 of 5
code into EAN-13, and transmits to the host as EAN-13. In order to accomplish
this, the I 2 of 5 code must be enabled, one length (either LENGTH 1 or
LENGTH 2) must be set to 14, the code must have a leading zero and a valid
EAN-13 check digit.
Bi-Directional Redundancy for Codabar
This parameter applies only to Codabar symbols. When enabled, the bar code
must be decoded in both directions to be considered good.
MSI Plessey Check Digit
One or two digits at the end of the bar code that check the integrity of the data.
At least one check digit (default) is always required. Check digits are not
transmitted with the data.
Code 39 Buffering (Scan & Store)
When you select the scan and store option, all Code 39 symbols having a
leading space as a first character are temporarily buffered in the unit to be
transmitted later. The leading space is not buffered.
Decode of a valid Code 39 symbol with no leading space causes transmission
in sequence of all buffered data in a first-in first-out format, plus transmission
of the “triggering” symbol. See Code 39 Buffering beginning on page 6-26 for
further details.
When the scan and transmit option is selected, decoded Code 39 symbols
without leading spaces are transmitted without being stored in the buffer.
Scan and Store affects Code 39 decodes only. If you select scan and store, it is
recommended that you configure the scanner to decode Code 39 symbology
only.
6-6
LS 3070 Product Reference Guide: Programming
Beeper Volume
Select degree of volume — high or low.
Beep After Good Decode
Determine if the unit beeper will sound during normal scanning. Usually it is
desirable to operate the unit with the beeper enabled. In all cases, the beeper
operates during parameter menu scanning and indicates error conditions. See
Beeper Definitions beginning on page 6-24.
UPC/EAN Security Level
The LS 3070 offers four levels of decode security for UPC/EAN bar codes.
Increasing levels of security are provided for decreasing levels of bar code
quality. There is an inverse relationship between security and scanner
aggressiveness, so be sure to choose only that level of security necessary for
any given application.
• Security Level 0 - This is the default setting which allows the scanner to
operate in its most aggressive state, while providing sufficient security in
decoding “in spec” UPC/EAN bar codes.
• Security Level 1 - As bar code quality levels diminish, certain characters
become prone to mis-decodes before others (i.e., 1, 2, 7, 8). If you are
experiencing mis-decodes of poorly printed bar codes, and the misdecodes are limited to these characters, select this security level.
• Security Level 2 - If you are experiencing mis-decodes of poorly printed
bar codes, and the mis-decodes are not limited to characters 1, 2, 7 and 8,
select this security level.
• Security Level 3 - If you have tried Security Level 2, and are still
experiencing mis-decodes, select this security level. Be advised, selecting
this option is an extreme measure against mis-decoding severely out of
spec bar codes. Selection of this level will significantly impair the
decoding ability of the scanner.
6-7
LS 3070 Product Reference Guide: Programming
Decode Redundancy
Use this parameter to indicate whether the scanner must read a bar code one
time (LEVEL 1), two times (LEVEL 2), or three times (LEVEL 3) before
decoding it. A higher level of redundancy ensures the accuracy of a decode in,
for example, poor quality symbols.
UPC-A and -E Preamble
Three options are given for the lead-in characters of decoded UPC-A or UPCE symbols transmitted to the host device. Select one preamble for UPC-A
decodes and one for UPC-E decodes. These lead-in characters are considered
part of the symbol itself. The three options are:
• a system character only
• the country code and system character
• no preamble
The system character is the digit printed to the extreme left of a UPC symbol.
The country code for UPC is always zero, and it cannot be transmitted without
the system character.
Pause Duration
This parameter, used in data editing, allows a pause to be inserted at any point
in the data transmission. Pauses are set by scanning a two digit number (i.e.,
two bar codes), and are measured in 1/10 second intervals. For example,
scanning bar codes “0” and “1” will insert a 1/10 second pause; “0” and “5”
will give you a 1/2 second delay.
Prefix/Suffix Values
A prefix/suffix may be appended to scan and magstripe data, for use in data
editing. These values are set by scanning a four digit number (i.e., four bar
codes) that correspond to keycodes for various terminals. See the ASCII Table
beginning on page 8-1.

RS-232C Options
Baud Rate
Baud rate is the number of bits of data transmitted per second. The scanner's
baud rate setting should match the data rate setting of the host device. If not,
data may not reach the host device or may reach it in distorted form.
Parity
A parity check bit is the most significant bit of each ASCII coded character. If
you select ODD parity, the parity bit will have a value 0 or 1, based on data, to
ensure that an odd number of 1 bits are contained in the coded character.
If you select EVEN parity, the parity bit will have a value 0 or 1, to ensure that
an even number of 1 bits are contained in the coded character. Select MARK
parity and the parity bit will always be 1. Select SPACE parity and the parity
bit is always 0. Select the parity type according to host device requirements.
Check Parity
Select whether or not the parity of received characters is checked. The type of
parity can be selected with the PARITY parameter.
Hardware Handshaking
Hardware handshaking allows you to check the readiness of the receiving
device before data is transmitted. If the receiving device is periodically
occupied with other tasks, hardware handshaking is needed to prevent loss of
transmitted data. Hardware handshaking may not be used in conjunction with
software handshaking. Refer to the flowchart on the following page.
RS-232C communications are designed to operate either with or without
hardware handshaking lines, RTS, Request to Send, and CTS, Clear to Send.
If RTS/CTS handshaking is selected, scan data is transmitted with the
following sequence: (Note that the DTR signal is hardwired active.)
• The base station reads the CTS line for activity. If CTS is asserted, the base
will wait up to one second for the host to negate the CTS line. If, after one
second the CTS line is still asserted, the base will sound a transmit error
and any scanned data will be lost.
6-11
LS 3070 Product Reference Guide: Programming
• When the CTS line is negated, the base asserts the RTS line and waits for
one second for the host to assert CTS. When the host asserts CTS, data is
transmitted.
• When data transmission is complete, the base will negate RTS 10 msec
after sending the last character.
• The host should respond by negating CTS. The base will check for a
negated CTS upon the next transmission of data.
During the transmission of data, the CTS line should be asserted.
• If the above communications sequence should fail, the base station will
issue a transmit error. In this case, the data is lost and must be rescanned.
Select whether the scan data is to be transmitted as soon as it is available or
whether transmission follows the RTS/CTS procedure.

Software Handshaking
This parameter offers control of the data transmission process. It may be used
instead of, but not in conjunction with, hardware handshaking. The base
station also provides four software handshaking options: NONE, ENQ, ACK/
NAK, and ACK/NAK with ENQ. These options may be combined, for
example ACK/NAK with ENQ. Refer to the chart following the parameter
description.
No Software Handshaking
ACK/NAK Only
The ACK/NAK option checks the success or failure of transmission. The base
station expects one of the following host responses after a data transmission:
• <ACK> - Acknowledges a valid and successful transmission.
• <NAK> - Indicates a problem with the transmission.
Whenever a <NAK> is received, the unit retransmits the same data and awaits
an ACK/NAK response. After three unsuccessful attempts to transmit the
same data, the base aborts any further communication attempts on that
message. Transmission error is indicated by the unit sounding 4 short beeps.
When no response for the duration of the serial response time-out parameter
(default 2 seconds), or a NAK is received, the base station will retransmit the
data until an ACK is received, or the third transmit failure. After three
unsuccessful transmission attempts, the unit will abort any further
communication attempts on the current message. It indicates this by sounding
4 long (1 second) beeps.
ENQ ONLY
The ENQ option needs the host to request data before it is transmitted to the
host. This ensures that data transmission occurs only when the host is ready to
receive.
6-13
LS 3070 Product Reference Guide: Programming
When you select the wait for ENQ option, the base station waits for an ENQ,
Enquire character, from the host before it transmits data; otherwise the unit
transmits data without waiting for an ENQ character from the host. With ENQ
enabled, the base station must receive an ENQ from the host within a 2 second
period after the last activity or 4 short beeps are sounded to indicate a
transmission error; the unit is now ready to scan again.
ACK/NAK with ENQ
This combines both handshaking options.

Serial Response Timeout
This parameter determines the maximum period allowed to elapse before the
base station assumes end of transmission. The delay period can range from 0 to
9.9 seconds.
Stop Bit Select
The stop bit(s) at the end of each transmitted character marks the end of
transmission of one character and prepares the receiving device for the next
character in the serial data stream. The number of stop bits (one or two) selected
depends on the number the receiving terminal is programmed to accommodate.
Set the number of stop bits to match host device requirements.
ASCII Format
When enabled, this parameter transmits data in an 8-bit ASCII format. This
allows the base station to interface with devices requiring that protocol. The
default is 7-bit ASCII.
RTS Line State
In order to transmit, some hosts expect the RTS line to be in a certain state (High
or Low) when there is no hardware handshaking. This parameter will adjust the
RTS Line State.
6-15
LS 3070 Product Reference Guide: Programming
Intercharacter Delay
Select the intercharacter delay option matching host device requirements. The
intercharacter delay gives the host system time to service its receiver and
perform other tasks between characters. Select from no delay to a 99 msec
delay between the transmission of each character.
Transmit Code ID Character
A code ID character identifies the code type of a scanned bar code. This may be
useful when the scanner is decoding more than one code type. If a prefix is
selected, the code ID character is sent after the prefix. Code ID characters are:
A = UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-13, or EAN-8; B - Code 39; C = Codabar; D = Code
128; F = Interleaved 2 of 5; G = Discrete 2 of 5.
Transmit AIM ID Character
Enabling this parameter, with the Transmit Code ID Character parameter
enabled allows you to send the AIM code identifer in lieu of the Symbol
identifiers listed above. The identifier will be sent as a three character prefix, in
accordance with AIM specifications for symbology identifiers. See AIM’s
Guidelines on Symbology Identifiers for full details.
Ignore Unknown Characters
When enabled, all data is sent except for unknown characters, and no error
beeps are sounded. Unknown characters are those characters the selected
terminal does not recognize.
When disabled, all data containing one or more unknown characters is
discarded, and error beeps are sounded.
OCIA Clock Polarity
Selects the appropriate clock edge values so that a host terminal with nonstandard OCIA format can recognize the clock signal phase synchronized with
data.
6-16
LS 3070 Product Reference Guide: Programming
OCIA Transmit Timeout
When connected to an OCIA terminal, the RL 470 base/interface will attempt
to transmit the data to the host. If the host is not prepared to accept data at that
time (i.e., the host data buffer may be full), the RL 470 will try to retransmit the
data for up to 3 seconds. If transmission is not successful, the data will be
discarded, and the RL 470 will issue a transmission error.
This parameter allows you to increase the time the RL 470 will attempt
transmission before discarding the data. You can select up to a 30 second delay
in one second increments. During the time the RL 470 is attempting to transmit
data, no new data can be scanned.
NCR 2152 Fast Transmit
Selects the data transmission speed to the NCR 2152 POS terminal. Depending
on the version of NCR 2152, selecting this option may increase the possibility
of lost or mis-transmitted data.
IBM 4683/93 Magstripe Communications
The RL 470 base/interface communicates with the IBM 4683/84/4693/94 as a
scanner device, and also as a magstripe reader device. The RL 470/IBM 4683/
93 magstripe communications can be enabled and disabled via this parameter.
If the RL 470 magstripe capability is needed, this parameter should be enabled.
If not, it should be disabled to avoid contention with any other magstripe
reader which may be connected to the host.
International Keypad Emulation
This parameter is supported by IBM AT/XT/PS2 terminals only. The layout of
some international keyboards differ from that of American keyboards. To send
a given character, regardless of its physical location on the keyboard, enable
this parameter.
International Keypad Emulation Fast Transmit
This parameter is used when International Keypad Emulation is enabled.
Some IBM AT/XT/PS2s allow for faster transmission. With this parameter
enabled, the RL 470 transmits at a faster rate. Not all IBM AT/XT/PS2s support
a faster transmission rate.

Set Transmission Frequency
Use this parameter to set an initial transmission frequency to avoid
interference on the default channel (channel 50). During operation, the
transmission channel changes automatically whenever interference is
encountered 80% of the time or more over a continuous five-minute period.
The selected frequency channel must be between 01 and 82.
Wait for Host Interface Response Time
The wait for host interface response timeout is the amount of time it takes for
the base to communicate with the host interface and the base to send an
acknowledgment back to the scanner. The amount of time required varies with
the host device.
Based on the installed interface type, the scanning system automatically
calculates a wait or timeout duration for host response. Under normal operating
conditions, there should be no need to program a wait for host response timeout value.
However, use this parameter when the interface’s data stream carries an additional
ADF pause duration. The more pause duration added to the data stream, the
longer the wait for host response timeout needs to be. Typically, most interfaces
timeout in an average of three seconds. If a pause duration is added, this may
cause RF communications errors (6 beeps); increase the host wait response
timeout to eliminate RF communication errors. Just start by programming at
least a 5-second timeout. If errors continue, increment the wait for host
response timeout until the RF communications errors stop occurring.
Wait for host response timeout values vary from 1 second to 99 seconds. After
scanning the Wait for Host Interface Response Time bar code, scan two
number keypad bar codes for the two-digit response time (in seconds). If you
program a value of zero, there will be an automatic calculation of the host wait
response timeout value, based on the selected host interface type.

Code 39 Buffering
While there is data in the transmission buffer, deleting Code 39 buffering
capability via the parameter menu is not allowed.
To allow disabling of Code 39 buffering, first force the buffer transmission (see
Transmit Buffer on page 6-27) or clear the buffer.
Buffer Data
To buffer data, Code 39 buffering must be enabled, and a symbol must be read
with a space immediately following the start pattern.
• Unless symbol overflows the transmission buffer, unit gives hi/lo beep to
indicate successful decode and buffering. See Overfilling Transmission
Buffer on page 6-27.
• Unit adds the message, excluding the leading space to the transmission
buffer.
• No transmission will occur.
Clear Transmission Buffer
To clear the transmission buffer, read a symbol which contains only a start
character, a dash (minus), and a stop character.
• Unit issues a short hi/lo/hi beep to signal that the transmission buffer has
been erased, and no transmission has occurred.
• Unit erases the transmission buffer.
• No transmission will occur.

LS 3070 Product Reference Guide: Programming
Transmit Buffer
To transmit the buffer, read a symbol containing either the first or second
condition:
1. Only a start character, a plus (+), and a stop character.
• The unit signals that the transmission buffer has been sent (a hi/lo beep).
• Unit sends the buffer.
• Unit clears the buffer.
2. A Code 39 bar code with leading character other than a space.
• The unit signals a good decode and buffering of that decode has occurred
by giving a hi/lo beep.
• Unit transmits the buffer.
• Unit signals that the buffer has been transmitted with a lo/hi beep.
Overfilling Transmission Buffer
If the symbol just read will result in an overflow of the transmission buffer:
• Unit indicates that the symbol has been rejected by issuing three long,
high beeps.
• No transmission will occur. Data in buffer is not affected.
Attempt to Transmit an Empty Buffer
If the symbol just read was the transmit buffer symbol and the Code 39 buffer
is empty:
• A short lo/hi/lo beep signals that the buffer is empty.
• No transmission occurs.
• The buffer remains empty.

Terminal Specific RS-232C Defaults
Two RS-232C hosts are set up with their own parameter default settings.
Selecting the ICL or Nixdorf RS-232C terminal will set the defaults listed
below. These defaults take precedence over standard defaults. So, if you’ve
selected Nixdorf RS-232C, then select the standard defaults, the Nixdorf
defaults will still take precedence.

wait for host response timeout calculation feature.
To program the waiting period for the host’s acknowledgement of data
reception:
1. Scan the WAIT FOR HOST INTERFACE RESPONSE TIME bar code.
2. Scan two number keypad bar codes to set the two-digit response time
(01 - 99, as measured in seconds).
