Configure the All-in-One
Overview
The All-in-One is designed for use with a server-based application that sends print data in response
to scan data received from the All-in-One. The general process is as follows:
1. When turned on, the All-in-One attempts to register with the server using network and server
configuration parameters that are stored in the All-in-One.
2. The All-in-One queries the server for any updates (firmware or configuration, for example).
3. The All-in-One is ready to scan.
4. After scanning a bar code, the All-in-One sends the information contained in the bar code to
the server.
5. The server responds with print data.
6. When the All-in-One receives the print data, the All-in-One signals the user that it is ready to
print.
7. After printing (or timing out) the All-in-One is ready to scan again.
In order to perform this scan-print process, several steps must be taken to ensure that all of the
devices in the process can communicate with each other. These steps are as follows:
•
Implement the server application. Refer to the Scan Print Protocol document, available at
www.hp.com/support/handheldsp400aio.
•
•
•
Configure the All-in-One devices to communicate with the server application.
Design the print templates.
Configure the server application and All-in-One devices to receive wireless updates (optional).
Implement the server application
The communication between the server application and the All-in-One is implemented using the Allin-One Scan Print Protocol (SPP). SPP is an ASCII-based protocol that contains a number of
command and response pairs used to communicate with and configure the All-in-One.
A number of factors must be considered when designing the server application. The primary
considerations are the number of devices that will be communicating with the server, and the
desired response time of the server application.
Refer to the Communication Protocols document for a detailed explanation of the protocol that
needs to be implemented on the server. It is available at www.hp.com/support/handheldsp400aio. In
addition, a sample server application is available for download from this website.
22
Configure the All-in-One
Configure the All-in-One
HP sp400 Series Configuration Software is available for download at the All-in-One website
(www.hp.com/support/handheldsp400aio). This Windows®-based software is used to configure the
necessary device settings so that the All-in-One can communicate with the server application. The
settings that need to be configured fall into three categories:
•
•
•
Wireless settings: security type, ESSID and Encryption keys
Server settings: primary and alternate registration servers, file server, application name
Application settings: application name, print template
The HP sp400 Series Configuration Software connects to an All-in-One device using a USB cable.
The software allows the user to configure the above settings and perform diagnostic and
maintenance functions on the All-in-One.
Refer to the HP sp400 Series Configuration Software Users Guide for details on installing and using
this software. It is available at www.hp.com/support/handheldsp400aio. For brief instructions on
configuring the server, see “Configure the server.”
Design a custom print template
HP sp400 Series Template Design Software is available for download at the All-in-One website
(www.hp.com/support/handheldsp400aio). This Windows-based software is used to design a
custom print template for your particular needs. It allows the user to create templates that consist of
static text and graphics and also dynamic text fields. The design software merges all the text and
graphics into a single template which is stored on the device.
The HP sp400 Series Template Design Software connects to the All-in-One using a USB cable. The
software allows the user to design and download templates and to perform maintenance functions.
Refer to the HP sp400 Series Template Design Software Users Guide for details on installing and
using this application, available at www.hp.com/support/handheldsp400aio. For brief instructions on
designing print templates, see “Design print templates.”

Scanning tips
•
The All-in-One's scanner is similar to a digital camera in that it takes digital pictures of a bar
code. Like a digital camera, the scanner should be held as still as possible when reading a bar
code.
•
•
•
The green light bar should be approximately centered on the bar code.
•
Reading bar codes straight on is appropriate in many cases, but the reflected light can interfere
with reading. Holding the All-in-one at an angle of about 5 degrees to the bar code may give
better results.
•
The All-in-One reads bar codes in an omnidirectional manner. This means the All-in-One does
not need to be pointed in the same direction as the bar code.
The green light bar should cover approximately 3/4 of a wide linear bar code.
The All-in-One is capable of reading bar codes at a distance of from 2 - 12 inches, but 6 - 9
inches is the ideal range. Actual reading distances may vary depending on the dimensions of
the bar code.
The green light bar should be approximately centered
on the bar code and cover approximately 3/4 of a
wide bar code
The All-in-One reads bar codes in an omnidirectional
manner
27
Operate the All-in-One
Print
Print instructions
1. Locate a clean, flat surface near the bar code for printing.
2. Place the nose of the All-in-One against the surface. The All-in-One should rest at an angle of
about 7 degrees from vertical.
3. Move the All-in-One straight across the surface.
4. When the print is finished, the green light will turn off and the All-in-One will emit a Hi tone.
CAUTION: Maintain a relaxed wrist and hand posture and use low force when printing.

To achieve the best possible readability, consider the following:
•
Magenta prints are easier to see than black prints on tan-colored surfaces like cardboard
boxes.
•
•
Prints on opaque white material show up best.
Prints on dark surfaces are not very visible, especially if the surfaces are similar in color.
NOTE: Prints on porous materials like cardboard and paper dry instantly, but prints on non-porous
materials can take a few moments to dry.

Ensure Optimal Comfort
Ergonomic recommendations – General
For optimal results and comfort, follow these ergonomic recommendations:
•
If you experience discomfort, discontinue use of the All-in-One and notify your supervisor
immediately. If you experience persistent or recurring pain or discomfort that you think may be
related to using the All-in-One, you should promptly consult a qualified physician and, if
available, your company’s health and safety department.
•
Select a comfortable print location:
○ Print at heights between elbow and shoulder level whenever possible.
○ When printing at heights at or below elbow level, printing horizontally is recommended (on
the top of the package, for example).
○ When printing at heights above elbow level, printing vertically is recommended (on the side
of the package, facing you, for example).
○ When printing at heights lower than waist level, bending at the knees (not at the waist) is
recommended.
○ To avoid extended reaches, slide packages close to you before scanning and printing.
•
To ensure good quality prints on different types of packages and to ensure comfort, use light
pressure to maintain contact with the package when printing. Applying more force will not
improve print quality.
•
•
When handling boxes, lift with both hands and use good lifting techniques.
Change your posture during the day by varying your tasks:
○ If your job requires standing for long periods, then sit during breaks.
○ If your job requires standing in one position, place one foot on a box or a bar to shift your
posture.
○ If your job requires standing in one position, use an anti-fatigue mat to improve comfort.
○ If your job requires you to walk, use cushioned insoles in your shoes to improve comfort.
Ergonomic recommendations – Hand mount
specific
For optimal results and comfort, follow these ergonomic recommendations:
•
The All-in-One is designed for scan and print applications. It is not recommended to be worn
when performing keyboarding or other office-related tasks.
•
Adjust the All-in-One finger strap so it is snug, but not too tight. The wrist strap should have
light tension to keep the device against the knuckles without pressure.
•
•
Maintain a relaxed, neutral posture while using the All-in-One. Avoid making a tight fist.
•
Make a light fist when printing to keep the fingers out of the way and help stabilize the hand
around the rudder and finger strap.
Minimize bending the wrist to position the All-in-One. Position hand in a light, relaxed fist when
using the All-in-One.
33
Ensure Optimal Comfort
•
The All-in-One can be worn on the right or left hand and arm. You may alternate wearing the
All-in-One on the right and left hand and arm.
•
If gloves are worn while using the All-in-one, ensure they fit properly. The gloves should
conform to your fingers and not significantly bunch under the finger strap. The finger length of
the gloves should be as long as your fingers so the glove webspace does not force the All-inone forward.
Ergonomic recommendations – Handle specific
For optimal results and comfort, follow these ergonomic recommendations:
•
Adjust the All-in-One lanyard so it is snug, but not too tight. The lanyard should be secure
enough to prevent the handle from dropping to the floor.
•
Maintain a relaxed, neutral posture while using the All-in-One. Avoid gripping the handle too
tightly
•
•
Minimize bending the wrist to position the All-in-One.
•
If gloves are worn while using the All-in-one, ensure they fit properly. The gloves should
conform to your fingers and the finger length of the gloves should be as long as your fingers.
The All-in-One can be used with the right or left hand. You may alternate using the All-in-One
between the right and left hand.

Range of wireless module
The typical wireless range is 100 feet (30.5 meters) or more within an office environment, and two to
three times that distance in wide open spaces. The range depends greatly upon the design and use
of the infrastructure. Interference from other RF devices, obstructions such as walls and trees,
ambient noise levels, and the performance of other communications devices and their antenna
selection and placement may all significantly impact the performance of the whole system.
