Chapter 1 Getting Started
Introduction
The ADVANCODE 2D BARCODE SCANNER armed with the computerized image recognition system,
bring about a new era of 2D barcode scanner.
The ADVANCODE 2D BARCODE SCANNER advanced chip design & manufacturing, which significantly
simplifies application design and delivers superior performance and solid reliability with low power
consumption.
The ADVANCODE 2D BARCODE SCANNER support all mainstream 1D and standard 2D barcode
symbologies (e.g., PDF417, QR Code M1/M2/Micro and Data Matrix) as well as GS1-DataBarTM(RSS)
(Limited/Stacked/Expanded versions). It can read barcodes on virtually any medium - paper, plastic card,
mobile phones and LCD displays.
About This Guide
This guide provides programming instructions for the ADVANCODE 2D BARCODE SCANNER. Users
can configure the ADVANCODE 2D BARCODE SCANNER by scanning the programming barcodes
included in this manual.
The ADVANCODE 2D BARCODE SCANNER has been properly configured for most applications and
can be put into use without further configuration. Users may check the Factory Defaults Table in
Appendix for reference. Throughout the manual, asterisks (**) indicate factory default values.

Barcode Scanning
Powered by area-imaging technology, the ADVANCODE 2D BARCODE SCANNER features fast
scanning and accurate decoding. Barcodes rotated at any angle can still be read with ease. When
scanning a barcode, simply center the aiming beam or pattern projected by the ADVANCODE 2D
BARCODE SCANNER over the barcode.
Barcode Programming
Scanning the Enter Setup barcode can enable the scanner to enter the setup mode. Then you can scan
a number of programming barcodes to configure your scanner. To exit the setup mode, scan the Exit
Setup barcode.
If the scanner has exited the setup mode, only some special programming barcodes, such as the Enter
Setup barcode and Restore All Factory Defaults barcode, can be read.
Enter Setup
** Exit Setup
Programming barcode data can be transmitted to the Host. Scan the appropriate barcode below to
enable or disable the transmission of programming barcode data (i.e. the characters under programming
barcode) to the Host.
Restarting the scanner will automatically disable the transmisison of programming barcode data to the
Host.

Factory Defaults
Scanning the following barcode can restore the scanner to the factory defaults. See Appendix 1:
Factory Defaults Table for more information.
Note: Use this feature with discretion.
Restore All Factory Defaults
Custom Defaults
Custom defaults make it possible to save the frequently-used settings on the scanner.
Scanning the Save as Custom Defaults barcode can save the current settings as custom defaults. Once
custom default settings are stored, they can be recovered at any time by scanning the Restore All
Custom Defaults barcode.
Custom defaults are stored in the non-volatile memory. Restoring the scanner to the factory defaults will
not remove the custom defaults from the scanner.

Chapter 2 Communication Interfaces
The ADVANCODE 2D BARCODE SCANNER provides a RS-232 interface and a USB interface to
communicate with the host device. The host device can receive scanned data and send commands to
control the scanner or to access/alter the configuration information of the scanner via the interface.
Power-Saving Mode
By default, the scanner adopts the Power-Saving Mode to conserve power. However, if this mode is
selected, you can only use RS-232 communication. If the Normal Mode is selected, you can use either
RS-232 or USB.
* Exit Setup

RS-232 Interface
Serial communication interface is usually used when connecting the scanner to a host device (like PC,
POS). However, to ensure smooth communication and accuracy of data, you need to set communication
parameters (including baud rate, parity check, data bit and stop bit) to match the host device.
The serial communication interface provided by the scanner is based on TTL-level signals. RS-232 can
be used for most application architectures. For those requiring RS-232, an external conversion circuit is
needed. The conversion circuit is available only to some models.
** Serial Communication
Default serial communication parameters are listed below. Make sure all parameters match the host
requirements.

USB Interface
USB Enumeration
If the scanner is connected to the Host via a USB connection, the scanner will be enumerated using S/N
or “00000000” after power-up. Enumeration using S/N enables the Host to distinguish even between
scanners of same model. Enumeration using “00000000” disables the Host from distinguishing
between scanners of same model.
Driver installation is required for each USB device distinguished from others by the Host in the process of
enumeration.

USB HID-KBW
When you connect the scanner to the Host via a USB connection, you can enable the USB HID-KBW
feature by scanning the barcode below. Then scanner’s transmission will be simulated as USB keyboard
input. The Host receives keystrokes on the virtual keyboard. It works on a Plug and Play basis and no
driver is required.

Chapter 3 Scan Mode
Batch Mode
If the Batch Mode is enabled, driving the TRIG pin on the host interface connector low activates a round
of multiple decode sessions. This round of multiple scans continues until the active trigger signal is no
longer present. Rereading the same barcode is not allowed if it was decoded previously in the same
round. For good decode, the scanner transmits decoded data via communication port. To activate another
round of multiple scans, the Host needs to first negate the trigger, waits 20ms or longer and then drive the
TRIG pin low.
** Batch Mode
* Exit Setup
15
Enter Setup
Trigger Mode
If the Trigger Mode is enabled, driving the TRIG pin on the host interface connector low activates a
decode session. The session continues until the barcode is decoded or decode session timeout expires
or the active trigger signal is no longer present. For good decode, the scanner transmits decoded data via
communication port. To activate another session, the Host needs to first negate the trigger, waits 20ms or
longer and then drive the TRIG pin low.
Trigger Mode
Decode Session Timeout
This parameter sets the maximum time decode session continues during a scan attempt. It is
programmable in 1ms increments from 0ms to 3,600,000ms. The default setting is 3,000ms. To learn how
to program this parameter, see Appendix 5.
Decode Session Timeout
* Exit Setup
16
Enter Setup
Level Trigger/Pulse Trigger
Level trigger: Decode session is activated and continued by constant active trigger signal. The decode
session ends once the barcode is decoded or decode session timeout expires.
Pulse trigger: Decode session is activated by electric pulse of trigger signal. The decode session
continues until the barcode is decoded or decode session timeout expires.
** Level Trigger
Pulse Trigger
Auto Sleep
Auto Sleep allows the scanner in the Trigger Mode to automatically enter the sleep or low power mode if
no operation or communication is performed for a time period (user programmable). When the scanner is
in the sleep mode, receiving trigger signal or communication from the Host can awake the scanner. The
scanner returns to full operation within 100ms.
** Enable Auto Sleep
Disable Auto Sleep
The parameter below specifies how long the scanner remains idle (no operation or communication occurs)
before it is put into sleep mode. It is programmable in 1ms increments from 0ms to 65,535ms. The default
setting is 500ms. To learn how to program this parameter, see Appendix 5.
Time Period from Idle to Sleep

Enter Setup
Sense Mode
If the Sense Mode is enabled, the scanner activates a decode session every time it detects a change in
ambient illumination. The decode session continues until the barcode is decoded or the decode session
timeout expires.
Driving the TRIG pin on the host interface connector low can also activate a decode session. The decode
session continues until the active trigger signal is no longer present or the barcode is decoded or the
decode session timeout expires. The trigger signal needs to be negated before the scanner is able to
monitor ambient illumination again.
Sense Mode
Decode Session Timeout
This parameter sets the maximum time decode session continues during a scan attempt. If the timeout
expires or the barcode is decoded, the scanner goes back to monitoring ambient illumination. It is
programmable in 1ms increments from 0ms to 3,600,000ms. The default setting is 3,000ms. To learn how
to program this parameter, see Appendix 5.
Decode Session Timeout
Image Stabilization Timeout
The image stabilization timeout is programmable in 1ms increments from 0ms to 1,600ms. The default
setting is 500ms.To learn how to program this parameter, see Appendix 5.

Timeout between Decodes (Same Barcode)
Timeout between Decodes (Same Barcode) can avoid undesired rereading of same barcode in a given
period of time.
To enable/disable the Timeout between Decodes (Same Barcode), scan the appropriate barcode below.
Enable Timeout between Decodes: Do not allow the scanner to re-read same barcode before the
timeout between decodes (same barcode) expires.

Continuous Mode
This mode enables the scanner to scan/capture, decode and transmit over and over again.
When the scanner is operating in Continuous Mode, barcode reading can be suspended/resumed
through control over the trigger signal. When barcode reading is in progress, negating the trigger signal
after having maintained it for 30ms or longer will suspend barcode reading; when barcode reading is
suspended, performing the same control over the trigger signal will resume barcode reading.
Continuous Mode
Decode Session Timeout
This parameter sets the maximum time decode session continues during a scan attempt. It is
programmable in 1ms increments from 0ms to 3,600,000ms. The default setting is 3,000ms. To learn how
to program this parameter, see Appendix 5.
Decode Session Timeout
Timeout between Decodes
This parameter sets the timeout between decode sessions. When a decode session ends, next session
will not happen until the timeout between decodes expires. It is programmable in 1ms increments from 0ms

Chapter 4 Scanning Preferences
Introduction
This chapter contains information as to how to adapt your scanner to various applications with preference
setting. For instance, to narrow the field of view of the scanner to make sure it reads only those barcodes
intended by the user.
Decode Area
Whole Area Decoding
When this option is enabled, the scanner attempts to decode barcode(s) within its field of view, from the
center to the periphery, and transmits the barcode that has been first decoded.
** Whole Area Decoding
Central Area Decoding
The scanner attempts to decode barcode(s) within a specified central area and transmits the barcode that
has been first decoded. This option allows the scanner to narrow its field of view to make sure it reads only
those barcodes intended by the user. For instance, if multiple barcodes are placed closely together, central
area decoding in conjunction with appropriate pre-defined central area will insure that only the desired
barcode is read.
Central Area Decoding
* Exit Setup
24
Enter Setup
Specify Central Area
The default central area is a (Width*20%) by (Height*20%) area in the center of the scanner’s field of view,
as shown in the figure below. You can define the central area by scanning the Specify Central Area
barcode and numeric barcode(s) corresponding to a desired percentage (1-100). If Central Area Decoding
is enabled by scanning the Central Area Decoding barcode, the scanner only reads barcodes that
intersect the predefined central area.
To learn how to program this parameter, see the “Appendix 5: Parameter Programming Examples”.

Aiming
When scanning/capturing image, the scanner projects an aiming pattern which allows positioning the
target barcode within its field of view and thus makes decoding easier.
Normal: The scanner projects an aiming pattern only during barcode scanning/capture.
Always ON: Aiming pattern is constantly ON after the scanner is powered on.
OFF: Aiming pattern is OFF all the time.

Chapter 7 Data Formatting
In many applications, barcode data needs to be edited and distinguished from one another.
Usually AIM ID and Code ID can be used as identifiers, but in some special cases customized prefix and
terminating character suffix like Carriage Return or Line Feed can also be the alternatives.
Data formatting may include:

Append AIM ID/Code ID/custom prefix before the decoded data

Append custom suffix after the decoded data

Append terminating character to the end of the data
The following formats can be used when editing barcode data:

[Code ID] + [Custom Prefix] + [AIM ID] + [DATA] + [Custom Suffix] + [Terminating Character]

[Custom Prefix] + [Code ID] + [AIM ID] + [DATA] + [Custom Suffix] + [Terminating Character]

Chapter 9 Image Control
Ambient Illumination
Ambient lighting conditions may vary from one operating environment to another, such as fluorescent lit
warehouses or sunlit open spaces. Fluorescent lights may flicker when using AC power source in
50-60Hz. Usually indoor illuminance is around 1,000 lux while outdoor illuminance may reach 60,000 lux
or even over 100,000 lux.
Two options are provided for ambient illumination settings:
Normal Illuminance: applicable to most indoor/outdoor environments.
High Illuminance: applicable to special enviroments with super-intense light source.
Change to this settings will not take effect until the scanner reboots or wakes up from sleep.
** Normal Illuminance (0~60000lux)
* Exit Setup
High Illuminance (60000~120000lux)

Image Flipping
The user may get reversed images when the scanner is installed in non-standard ways. When it happens,
image flipping can be used to right the “wrong”.
The following figures illustrate standard image and three flipped images.

Fig.8-1 Standard Image: Image the scanner should get when it is installed properly and no reflector is
used in its optical imaging system.

Fig.8-2 Horizontal Flipped Image: It happens when horizontal reflection occurs along the optical path.
To get standard images, enable the Flip Horizontally option.

Fig.8-3 Vertical Flipped Image: It happens when vertical reflection occurs along the optical path. To
get standard images, enable the Flip Vertically option.

Fig.8-4 Horizontal and Vertical Flipped Image: It happens when the scanner is installed upside down.
To get standard images, enable the Flip Horizontally and Vertically option.

Chapter 10 Troubleshooting
FAQ
Problem: Barcodes cannot be read.
Solution:
1. Find out the barcode type and verify that the barcode type is enabled. If the barcode parameters include
check digit verification, select the Disable option.
2. If you do not know the barcode type, enable all symbologies.
3. If they are inverse barcodes (bright images on a dark background), enable the Video Reverse feature.
Problem: Incorrect output.
Solution:
1. If this problem happens to all barcodes and additional characters appear before/after barcode data, disable
all prefix/suffix.
2. If this problem only happens to some barcodes and matches one of the following situations:
a) incomplete barcode data: Enable the check digit verification.
b) both the first and last characters are asterisks (*): Disable the transmission of start/stop characters of
Code 39.
c) “a” transmitted as “+A”: Enable Code 39 Full ASCII.
Problem: Barcodes can be read, but cannot be displayed.
Solution: Verify that the serial port parameter (such as baud rate, data bit and stop bit) settings match the host
requirements.
98
Problem: Illumination and aiming beams are OFF.
Solution:
1. Verify that the scanner is properly powered up.
2. Send “?” to the scanner. If the scanner returns a reply of “!”, then send programming commands to turn on
illumination and aimer.
Problem: Carriage Return/Line Feed settings.
Solution: See the “Terminating Character Suffix” section in Chapter 7.

Appendix 7: Save/Cancel Barcodes
After reading numeric barcode(s), you need to scan the Save barcode to save the data. If you scan the
wrong digit(s), you can either scan the Cancel barcode and then start the configuration all over again, or
scan the Delete the Last Digit barcode and then the correct digit, or scan the Delete All Digits barcode
and then the digits you want.
For instance, after reading the Maximum Length barcode and numeric barcodes “1”, “2” and “3”, you
scan:

Delete the Last Digit: The last digit “3” will be removed.

Delete All Digits: All digits “123” will be removed.

Cancel: The maximum length configuration will be cancelled. And the scanner is still in the setup
mode.
