Chapter 1 — About the Computer Features
About the Battery
The computer uses a rechargeable 3.6 V Li-ion battery as its main power
source. The battery has a 14.6 watt hour capacity. Several factors
determine the life of your battery, such as display brightness, display
timeout, input device, extreme temperature, and your usage.
The CT50h battery (P/N 318-055-002) has the same specifications as
the CT50 battery (P/N 318-055-001), but it is made out of specialty
plastic designed for healthcare environments. The batteries are not
interchangeable. Use only the battery designed for your model of
computer.
Honeywell recommends that you keep the battery charged at all times to
prevent data loss. When you change the battery, the computer
automatically goes into a power-off state and then cold boots.
Contact your local sales representative for replacement batteries.
Caution: The battery used in this device may present a fire or
chemical burn hazard if it is mistreated. Do not disassemble it, heat
it above 100 °C (212 °F), or incinerate it. Dispose of used batteries
promptly. Keep away from children.
Caution: We recommend the use of Honeywell Li-ion battery packs.
The use of any non-Honeywell battery may result in damage not
covered by the warranty. A non-Honeywell battery will not be
charged in the device or in a Honeywell charger.
Charge the Battery
Make sure you fully charge the battery (Model CT50-BTSC) before you
use your computer. You can charge the battery before or after you install
it in the computer. It takes about 6 hours for the battery to fully charge in
any of the accessories
•
Insert the battery into a Quad Battery Charger or the battery well of
an eHomeBase.
or
•

Insert the computer with the battery installed into an eHomeBase,

About the Scanner
The internal scanner can read 1D and 2D bar code symbologies,
composite symbologies, and postal codes. It also supports omnidirectional scanning for greater flexibility in real-world settings. The
image engine can also capture black and white images, such as
signatures and pictures of damaged inventory.
How to Scan Bar Codes as Keyboard Input
The scan wedge feature sends scanned bar code data to an active
application as Android keypad input. To scan a bar code as keyboard
input, open an application that accepts text input and then scan a bar
code. By default, scan wedging is enabled on the computer.
You can use applications that are coded to use the scanner or
applications that receive data through the scan wedge feature. If an
application claims the scanner through the BarcodeReader API, the
scan wedge feature is temporarily disabled. You can find information on
how to create custom applications for the computer in the Software
Development Kit (SDK) available for download at

Chapter 4 — Use the Phone
About the Phone
Phone features on the computer include a speaker and a microphone.
You can also use a Bluetooth headset or hands-free kit. The phone
feature is enabled by default.
The WWAN radio in your computer determines the supported network
types:
•
If your computer includes the UMTS/HSPA+ WAN radio, you can
connect to UMTS networks.
•
If your computer includes the Flexible Network Radio, you can
connect to CDMA or UMTS networks in all regions that support these
technologies. The Flexible Network Radio is a software-defined radio
(SDR) that can be configured for CDMA or UMTS depending on your
wireless communication needs.
Honeywell supports Verizon in the United States (only) as a CDMA
network carrier. For other carriers, contact Honeywell Technical
Support.
After you turn on the phone and activate service with your wireless
carrier, you can customize the phone features and network settings in
the Wireless & Networks section of the Settings app.
Note: Both WWAN radios support Network Information and Time Zone
(NITZ) messages to automatically set the system time.
Activate the UMTS Phone
Activating the UMTS phone (Model CT50LUN) on your CT50 is done the
same way whether your computer has the Flexible Network Radio or the
UMTS/HSPA+WAN radio.
You use a SIM card to activate the UMTS phone on the CT50. You can
purchase the SIM card from your network provider.
1 Power off the computer.
2 Disconnect the handstrap from the bottom of the computer.
3 Press and slide the battery door toward the bottom of the computer
to unlock the door.

Activate the CDMA Phone
To activate the CDMA phone (Model CT50LFN) in your mobile computer,
you need to contact your wireless carrier and set up an account.
You also need to provide the carrier with the Mobile Equipment Identifier
(MEID) for the computer. You can find the MEID:
•
on a label located in the battery compartment.
•
on the outside of the computer shipping box.
Note: For the CDMA phone, settings are permanently stored in the
WWAN radio after activation. CDMA settings persist through a factory
data reset.
The activation process is slightly different for each CDMA carrier. Your
carrier sales contact and an Honeywell representative can guide you
through the process. In general, you activate the CDMA phone as
follows:
1 Contact your wireless provider and give the provider the MEID for the
computer.
2 If your carrier is Verizon, tap
, enter *228 on the phone keypad,
and tap
. After a short wait, a message appears, confirming either
success or failure of the activation. After successful activation, the
phone is ready to use.

Clean the Computer
Note: You can use this basic cleaning process to clean the CT50 and
CT50h computers. However, please refer to the Honeywell DisinfectantReady Housings Data Sheet on www.honeywellaidc.com for a list of
tested disinfectants and recommendations for disinfecting the CT50h
computer.
To keep the computer in good working order, you may need to clean the
scanner window, color camera window, and the touch screen. Clean the
windows and the touch screen as often as needed for the environment in
which you are using the computer. The computer will withstand
application of the following cleaning agents when applied to a clean soft
cloth and removed immediately with a dry soft cloth:
•
Acetic acid, 10% in water
•
Ethyl alcohol, 10% in water
•
Mild soap solutions
Caution: There are no user-serviceable parts inside the computer.
Opening the computer will void the warranty and may cause
damage to the internal components.
Note: Honeywell recommends that you leave the battery installed when
you clean the computer. Leaving the battery installed helps prevent fluids
from entering the computer through the microSIM card and microSD
card connectors.
1 Press the Power button to suspend the computer.
2 Dip a clean cloth towel in the cleaning agent and wring out the
excess.
