Getting Started
Starting up
After loading up the Imager Configuration Manager, the ICM icon will
appear in your system tray
ICM has a large workspace on the right, scanner settings on the left,
function icons on the top, and workspace tabs beneath the work page.
Shutting down
Even when clicking the close program icon, ICM will remain running in
the background until closed through the system tray icon. To do this,
right click on the icon and select Exit.
Basic Operations
Along the top of the ICM are buttons that allow easy access to it’s basic
functions.
Configuration Profiles
With the ICM, you can create and save configuration profiles. These
profiles contain all of your settings, so that you can switch between
different groups of settings for different situations.

About
Displays the version of the Imager Configuration Manager currently
running, as well as the serial of your connected scanner, SNAPI DLL
version, and Scanner Version.
Workspace Tabs
Below the workspace area there are three different tabs that allow you to
select different work space areas.
Settings
The settings workspace is shown by default. It shows each individual
configuration of the section selected from the scanner settings selection
on the left side.
Decoding
The Decoding page contains information about your most recent bar
code scan. This information includes:
Image Capture Time - The amount of time in milliseconds the
scanner took to capture an image.
Auto Exposure Execution Time - the amount of time in
milliseconds the scanner required to calculate the appropriate values
for exposure time, gain, and illumination. This is normally less than
1 ms.
Image Processing Time - the total image processing time, including
image capture, image correction, identification of the various bar
codes in the scanner’s field of vision, and decoding each relevant bar
code.
Barcode Processing Time - presents a synopsis of the bar code data,
the symbology of the bar code, and the total amount of time in
milliseconds of processing required for an individual bar code label.

Image
The image page displays an image scanned by your imager. You can
scan an image by pressing the scanner’s trigger, the F3 key on your
keyboard, or by clicking the Image Capture icon at the top of the ICM.
Barcode Symbologies
This section allows you to change settings for each symbology. After
selecting a symbology from the scanner settings section on the left side,
you can change the options for that symbology. To change any attribute’s
setting, double click it in the settings workspace on the right. Below is a
list of supported symbologies with configurable settings.

Troubleshooting
If your barcode doesn’t scan:
Try scanning other barcodes. If other barcodes scan, you may need to
enable the symbology of your barcode. You may also need cleaner
barcodes, as barcodes that are dirty or printed badly may not scan well.
When a barcode doesn’t scan, start by placing the scanner as close as
possible to your barcode, pull the trigger, and gradually move your
scanner back away from the barcode.
If your scanner appears to the system as unrecognized:
Try unplugging the scanner and plugging it back in, or rebooting the
system. You should also try to plug your scanner into a different port, as
this issue may also be related to a faulty USB port.
