•
High density matrix codes and larger low density linear codes
•
Superior working range
•
High-speed omni-directional decoding
•
Wireless and cabled interfaces
•
Unsurpassed data rates
The HE40T sets a new benchmark for size and weight. It is smaller and lighter
than comparable systems yet can withstand multiple drops to concrete. It is the
only product available in handheld, gun handle, and presentation stand form
factors with cabled, batch and wireless versions. The wireless version utilizes the
latest Bluetooth™ class 1 radio with a 300 foot operating range. The HE40T is
rugged and lightweight, and the wireless version will operate for more than a
complete shift at the highest use rate. The HE40T performs more than 3000 reads

Charging the Lithium Ion Battery
The battery automatically charges every time a cable interface is attached to the
reader and the host is powered up.
Note: The RS-232 interface power adapter must be plugged into a wall socket for
the reader to charge.
If you power up the HE40T with a completely discharged battery, it will take up
to 10 minutes before the reader will become operational.
Batch Operation
Note: To utilize batch functionality, you will need to use the BH1 or BH2 battery
handle.
The HE40T features a batch mode for applications requiring a portable reader.
Batch mode allows you to store scanned data to the reader’s non-volatile
memory. You may transfer the data to a host computer when needed.
The HE40T may be programmed to operate in the following batch modes:
•
Send & Buffer Mode (Default) — In Send and Buffer Mode, the HE40T
reader will automatically detect when the USB or RS-232 cable is detached
or the Bluetooth® radio is out of range, and will switch into batch mode (see
“Radio Range and Transferring Data” on page 1-22) and buffer the data in
non-volatile memory. When the reader is reconnected to your host computer
or when the Bluetooth Radio is back in range, the reader will auto transfer
the buffered data. Once transferred, the data is automatically erased from the
reader’s memory.
Note: Once a reader is re-attached to a cable or enters within radio range, any
data scanned WILL NOT be saved to the non-volatile memory. For
RS-232, the HE40T must be in Batch mode for the data to be stored.
•
1-8
Log Only Mode — In Log Only Mode, the reader will only store data into
non volatile memory. You can only retrieve the data by scanning the Transfer
All Stored Data in Memory code (see “Transferring and Deleting Data” on
HawkEye™ 40T User Manual
Rev 2.0.0, Jan 2009
page 1-9). Once the reader’s memory has been transferred to a host
computer, all of the data will still reside in memory. You must scan the
Delete Scanned Data from Memory code to clear memory.
•
Send & Log Mode — In Send and Log Mode, the reader will save a copy in
non volatile memory as well as send the data if the reader is connected. The
data can be retrieved by scanning the Transfer All Stored Data in Memory
code or the Transfer Only Unsent Data in Memory code (see “Transferring
and Deleting Data” on page 1-9). Once the readers memory has been
transferred to a host computer, all of the data will still reside in memory. You
must scan the Delete Scanned Data from Memory code to clear memory.
Note: The reader can be defined as connected if:
- The Bluetooth radio is in range.
- The USB cable is attached to a host and the reader is enumerated.
- The reader is in RS-232 cabled mode.
- The RS-232 cable is attached to a host with a power supply and the reader is in
RS-232 batch mode.
The HE40T dedicated batch memory is a minimum of 1MB. To determine the
number of reads that may be stored, divide the average bytes of a scan into the
total minimum memory.
Feedback
After a successful decode in batch mode, the reader will beep once and the
memory LED will flash either red or amber, depending on memory level. Every
15 seconds the battery LED will flash green, amber or red, depending on the
battery level. This is accurate when a reader is cabled or uncabled.
Transferring and Deleting Data
There are three different codes to transfer and delete data in memory:
•
Rev 2.0.0, Jan 2009
Transfer All Data in Memory — This code will send all data in memory
every time the code is scanned.
HawkEye™ 40T User Manual
1-9

Getting Started
Batch Operation
Chapter
1
Getting Started
•
Transfer Only Unsent Data in Memory — This code will send only the data
in memory that hasn’t already been sent when the code is scanned (ONLY
works in Send and Log mode).
•
Delete Scanned Data from Memory — Scanning this code will erase all data
in the reader’s non-volatile memory.
You may also program a trigger to transfer data (see Chapter 2, “Optimization
and Trigger Programming”).
Auto Transfer Buffer Memory
By default, when reconnected, the HE40T will automatically transfer any data in
memory once a connection to a host is established. If your application is not
ready, the reader will send the data anyway and the data could be lost. If you do
not wish for the reader to immediately send data upon connection, scan the
Disable Auto Transfer Buffer Memory, as shown in Figure 1–9.

RS-232 Considerations
•
In RS-232 Batch Cable - Detect mode, the HE40T will detect if it is
connected to a powered serial cable, and will send the data. If a powered
serial cable is not connected or if the power adapter is not connected to the
serial cable, the HE40T will buffer the data. When the HE40T is then
connected to a powered serial cable, the data will automatically upload.
•
In RS-232 Cabled - No Power mode, the HE40T will behave as if it is
always connected even though the serial cable is disconnected or the power
adapter is unplugged. Scanned data will be sent, regardless of connection
status. Data scanned in Cabled mode will be lost if the HE40T is not
connected to the serial cable. It will not buffer the data, unless Send & Store
mode has been enabled.
Note: If you are in RS-232 Cabled-No Power mode, when you place a reader in a
charger, the reader will behave as if it is being cabled, and download the data.
THE DATA WILL BE ERASED FROM MEMORY. To disable this feature, scan
the RS-232 Cable - Detect code.

Bluetooth Radio Operation
Wireless HE40T readers feature a Bluetooth® wireless radio. The radio allows
for point to point wireless communication with other Bluetooth devices that
support serial port protocol (SPP). The following information will give you
general instructions on connecting your HE40T to a desktop or laptop computer
with a Bluetooth radio.
Connecting With A QuickConnect Code
If you purchased a CodeXML Bluetooth Modem or a Belkin® Bluetooth adapter
from Microscan or from an authorized distributor, a QuickConnect code was
included (Figure 1–26).
1-20
HawkEye™ 40T User Manual
Rev 2.0.0, Jan 2009
FIGURE 1–26.
QuickConnect Code
The QuickConnect code has the information of the Bluetooth address (often a
reference to go to the BD_ADDR) of that device. You can usually find the
12-character Bluetooth address somewhere on the device near the device’s serial
number (Figure 1–26). This code will link your HE40T directly to the desired
Bluetooth device.
Note: While installing the Bluetooth Configuration Manager software that was
included with your Bluetooth adapter, make sure to note the Virtual COM Port
number the software assigned for the adapter (e.g. COM 10). This is the COM
Port your HE40T will connect through.
To connect your reader, scan the Reset to Factory Defaults code in Figure 1–27.
Then, the QuickConnect Code and your HE40T will automatically connect. You
should also scan the Save Settings code if you want to save these settings.
Note: If the HE40T reader powers off without scanning the Save Settings code,
you will lose your settings.

Radio Range and Transferring Data
The HE40T radio is a Class 1 device. If connected to another Class 1 device, the
reader has roughly a 300 foot line of sight operating range. If connecting to a
Class 2 or Class 3 device, the operating range may drop to match the lower range.
Once a reader is connected, the application software on the host must be open to
receive data.
When the HE40T detects the radio is out of range, the HE40T will store data on
the reader’s non-volatile memory. The reader will continue to try and send data
until radio is back in range. Once the data is sent, the data will be erased from the
reader’s memory. If the radio cannot connect in 90 seconds, it will give an error
beep. The reader will continue to try and connect until it has reached the
programmable radio timeout setting.
The HE40T Bluetooth protocol allows for two forms of communication:
•
One Way Mode — Defined as one way communication between the reader
and host. One Way mode is only recommended when connecting to a device
well within its specified range, or if connected to a device without an
operating system (i.e., printer). There are two settings in this mode:
–
Max Range (Default) — Greater range but data reliability is lower
–
Max Reliability — Limits range but reliability is improved
FIGURE 1–28.

Note: While robust, One Way Mode doesn’t guarantee data integrity and you
may have data loss when operating in the fringes of radio range or in the presence
of radio interference.

HawkEye™ 40T User Manual
Rev 2.0.0, Jan 2009
•
RF Two Way Mode — This is two way communication between the host and
reader. This requires the implementation of software at the application level.
The reader receives confirmation via packet protocol verification and is
100% reliable. Data will be retransmitted automatically if necessary.
FIGURE 1–29.
RF Two Way Mode Codes
RF Two Way Mode
Note: You will need to install application software that supports packet
communication to operate in RF Two Way Mode. Microscan offers the
CodeXML Bluetooth Modem and a Windows or Pocket PC version of software
called CodeXML Router - Bluetooth Edition (BE) that provides for end-to-end
Bluetooth handshakes that eliminate out-of-range data loss. CodeXML Router BE also offers Bluetooth to keyboard wedge communication for applications that
require keyboard port input.
If you are using the CodeXML Bluetooth modem, you must use RF Two Way
Mode.

Disconnecting from the Reader
You can force a disconnect by reading the disconnect code in Figure 1–31 (the
HE40T may not appear disconnected in the slave Bluetooth connection manager
for 10 – 15 seconds after the command is issued). The HE40T will also
disconnect after 90 seconds of inactivity.

Targeting and Reading Techniques
The HE40T utilizes digital camera technology to take a picture of a symbol.
Once an image is captured, the HE40T utilizes advanced decoding algorithms to
extract data from the captured image.
The reader features left and right triggers. These triggers may be programmed to
perform various features. The reader is shipped with the left trigger and right
trigger functioning as a decode symbol command.
The H2 Cabled Handle and BH1/BH2 Battery Handle each feature a trigger on
the handle. The two triggers on the top of the reader also work when the handle is
attached.

The HE40T features omnidirectional decoding. Center the symbol in any
orientation within the laser dot aiming pattern (Figure 1–38).

Note: The HE40T can read a symbol that is not centered; however, the
HE40T performs best when a code is centered.
The HE40T features omnidirectional decoding. Aiming the targeting laser at
the center of the symbol ensures the best performance for decoding. The
HE40T can read a symbol that is not centered and, under certain
circumstances if multiple symbols are within the field of view, the user must
take care of which symbol is read. The decoder will start from the center, but
if the center symbol is not decodable, it may decode another symbol, if
multiple symbols are present within the field of view.

The HE40T was developed to decode both very small 2-D symbols and
larger 1-D symbols. The reader features two imagers to create an innovative
dual decode zone. The HE40T features a high speed processor and decodes
both zones simultaneously, by default. The reader has one imager focused on
a near-field for smaller codes (optimal focal point is 4 inches) and one
imager focused on a far-field for larger codes (optimal focal point 9 inches).
To read smaller symbols, move the HE40T closer to the symbol. To read
larger symbols, move the reader farther away from the symbol. The entire
HE40T decode zone varies between two (2”) and twenty (20+”) or more
inches.
Hold the HE40T still - DO NOT SWIPE OR MOVE THE READER. Press
the trigger until the HE40T beeps, indicating the code has been successfully
decoded.
To read a symbol with a shiny background, hold the HE40T slightly tilted to
avoid the reflected light from the LEDs.
The reader may be optimized to your specific environment by scanning
codes in Chapter 6, “Advanced Decoder Performance”.

Imager Field of View and Resolution
The HE40T’s megapixel imager, with a dual field optical system, can provide
you the best image for 1-D and 2-D applications.
The 1.3 Million Pixel imager is divided into near field and far field decode zones.
In each zone, the resolution is 1024 x 640 pixels (see Figure 1.25). In this mode
of operation the reader utilizes the highest resolution creating the widest working
range on bar code and 2-dimensional symbols of all densities. The trade-off is the
amount of time the reader spends processing the image. This time can be reduced
by optimization functions:
•
If only the near field is used (small, high density symbols), the far field
image can be ignored.
•
If only the far field is used (large, lower density symbols), the near field can
be ignored.
•
Further optimization may be obtained by “windowing” the field to a smaller
area.

The HE40T comes with SXGA mode and its dual field optical system activated
for all the triggers. From the moment you turn on your HE40T, you are taking full
advantage of the dual path 1.3 megapixel imager and the 400 MHz processor
with Microscan’ industry leading DPM technology.
The HE40T is easily customizable; each trigger can be independently
programmed for different behavior.
•
Near Field (NF) — The nearest field of the HE40T’s two image fields. It has
an optimal focal point of 4” (101.6 mm) away from the lens of the reader.
The width of the Field of View is 1.5” (38.1 mm) at the optimal focus point.
•
Far Field (FF) — The farthest field of the HE40T’s two image fields. It has
an optimal focal point of 9” (228.6 mm) away from the lens of the reader.
The width of the Field of View is 4” (101.6 mm) at the optimal focus point.

Department of Defense
Unique Identification (UID)
CHAPTER 4
UID is a mandatory Department of Defense requirement on all solicitations
issued January 1, 2004. This policy mandates the use of Data Matrix symbology
on a large class of equipment and parts procured by DoD. The HE40T reader
complies with Department of Defense Standard Practice Identification
(MIL-STD-130).
Once the HE40T decodes the Data Matrix symbol, and, if the Unique Item
Identifier (UII), Current Part Number (CPN), and Lot/Batch Number (LBN) are
turned on, it checks the ISO 15434 syntax with ISO 15418 (ANSI MH10.8.2 - AI
& DI) and ISO 21849 (ATA - TEI) semantics to construct UII, CPN, and LBN.
DoD UID Settings
The following UID data output options are applicable to Data Matrix only and
have no effect on other symbologies:

HE40T Maintenance
The HE40T operates efficiently and reliably and needs only a minimum of
maintenance to operate. A few tips are given below for maintenance suggestions.
Cleaning the HE40T’s Window
The HE40T’s window should be clean to allow the best performance. The
window is the clear plastic piece inside the head of the Reader. Do not touch the
window. Your HE40T uses CMOS technology that is much like a digital camera.
A dirty window may stop the HE40T from reading codes.
If the window becomes dirty, clean it with a soft, non-abrasive cloth or a facial
tissue (no lotions or additives) that has been moistened with water. You may use a
mild detergent to clean the window, but the window should be wiped with a
water moistened cloth or tissue after using the detergent.
The HE40T’s housing may be cleaned in the same way.
For applications that require cleaning with disinfectant, please use products with
the following ingredients:
•
Isopropyl Alcohol
•
Ethyl Alcohol (Denatured Grade)
Microscan does not recommend using bleach.
