Introduction
Introducing the MS842
Your new scanner has been configured at the factory with default settings.
Since many host systems have unique formats and protocol requirements, Unitech
provides a wide range of configurable features that may be selected using this bar
code based configuration tool. Once the configuration is completed, the scanner
stores the settings in nonvolatile memory (NOVRAM). NOVRAM saves the settings
when the power is turned off.
Turn off the computer’s power before connecting the scanner, and then power up
the computer once the scanner is fully connected.
You can change a parameter value in the way described below:
Scan the appropriate bar codes in this guide. These new values replace the
standard default values in memory.
NOTE: Most computer monitors allow scanning the bar codes directly on the screen. When scanning from the
screen, be sure to set the document magnification to a level where you can see the bar code clearly, and bars
and/or spaces are not merging.
Select a host type (see each host chapter for specific host information) after the
power-up beep signal activates. This is only necessary upon the first power-up
when connected to a new host.
To return all features to default values, scan the Set Default bar code in Chapter 3.
Throughout the programming bar code menus, asterisks (*) indicate default values.
Report Version
Scan the bar code below to report the version of software currently installed in the
decoder.

USB Interface
This chapter describes how to set up the digital scanner with a USB host. The
digital scanner connects directly to a USB host, or a powered USB hub, which
powers it. No additional power supply is required.
Note: Most computer monitors allow scanning the bar codes directly on the screen. When scanning
from the screen, be sure to set the document magnification to a level where you can see the
bar code clearly, and bars and/or spaces are not merging.
Connecting a USB Interface
The digital scanner also interfaces with other USB hosts which support USB
Human Interface Devices (HID).
Note: Interface cables vary depending on configuration. The connectors illustratedabove are
examples only. The connectors may be different than those illustrated, but the steps to
connect the digital scanner are the same.
1. Connect the modular connector of the USB interface cable to the cable interface
port on the digital scanner.
2. Plug the series A connector in the USB host or hub, or plug the Plus Power
connector in an available port of the IBM SurePOS terminal.
3. Select the USB device type by scanning the appropriate bar code from USB
Device Type.
4. On first installation when using Windows, the software prompts to select or
install the Human Interface Device driver. To install this driver, provided by
Windows, click Next through all the choices and click Finished on the last
choice. The digital scanner powers up during this installation.
5. To modify any other parameter options, scan the appropriate bar codes in this
chapter.

USB Host Parameters
USB Device Type
Select the desired USB device type.
USB Virtual COM
USB Transmission Speed Parameters
Use the following parameters to speed USB data transmission:
USB Polling Interval - When using more current USB systems, use this
parameter to set a lower interval in order to increase data transmission speed.
Quick Keypad Emulation - When configured as a USB HID keyboard device,
use this parameter to increase the data transmission speed of a mix of both
printable (7-bit) and full (8-bit) ASCII characters.
USB Polling Interval
This option speeds data transmission for all USB devices except CDC. Scan a bar
code below to set the polling interval. The polling interval determines the rate at
which data can be sent between the scanner and the host computer. A lower
number indicates a faster data rate. The default value is 8 msec.
Changing the polling interval re-initializes the scanner.
CAUTION Ensure your host machine can handle the selected data rate. Selecting
a data rate that is too fast for the host can result in lost data.

Quick Keypad Emulation
This option applies only to the HID Keyboard Emulation Device and if Emulate
Keypad below is enabled. This parameter enables a quicker method of keypad
emulation where ASCII sequences are only sent for ASCII characters not found on
the keyboard. The default value is Disable.
This option applies only to the HID keyboard emulation device when Emulate
Keypad is enabled. This parameter enables a quicker method of emulation utilizing
the numeric keypad. The default value is Disable.
NOTE: This feature is not compatible with Fast HID Keyboard mode.
5

Emulate Keypad
Enable this to send all characters as ASCII sequences over the numeric keypad.
For example ASCII A transmits as “ALT make” 0 6 5 “ALT Break”.
Emulate Keypad with Leading Zero
Enable this to send character sequences sent over the numeric keypad as ISO
characters which have a leading zero. For example ASCII A transmits as “ALT
MAKE” 0 0 6 5 “ALT BREAK”.
USB Country Keyboard Types - Country Codes
Scan the bar code corresponding to the keyboard type. This setting applies only to
the USB HID Keyboard Emulation device.
Note: When changing USB country keyboard types the decoder automatically resets and issues the
standard startup beep sequences.

Simulated Caps Lock
Enable this to invert upper and lower case characters on the bar code as if the
Caps Lock state is enabled on the keyboard. This inversion occurs regardless of
the keyboard’s Caps Lock state. Note that this only applies to alpha characters.
7
Copyright 2013 Unitech Electronics Co., Ltd. All rights reserved. Unitech is a registered trademark of Unitech Electronics Co., Ltd.
USB CAPS Lock Override
This option applies only to the HID Keyboard Emulation device. Enable this to
preserve the case of the data regardless of the state of the Caps Lock key. This
setting is always enabled for the Japanese, Windows (ASCII) keyboard type and
cannot be disabled.
Note: If both Simulated Caps Lock and Caps Lock Override are enabled, Caps Lock Override
takes precedence.
Function Key Mapping
ASCII values under 32 are normally sent as a control-key sequences. Enable this
parameter to send the keys in bold in place of the standard key mapping. Table
entries that do not have a bold entry remain the same whether or not you enable
this parameter.

RS-232 Interface
This chapter describes how to set up the digital scanner with an RS-232 host. Use
the RS-232 interface to connect the digital scanner to point-of-sale devices, host
computers, or other devices with an available RS-232 port (e.g., com port).
Connecting an RS232 Interface
Connect the digital scanner directly to the host computer.
Note: Interface cables vary depending on configuration. The connectors illustrated in above are
examples only. The connectors may be different than those illustrated, but the steps to
connect the digital scanner are the same.
1. Attach the modular connector of the RS-232 interface cable to the cable
interface port on the digital scanner.
2. Connect the other end of the RS-232 interface cable to the serial port on the
host.
3. Connect the power supply to the serial connector end of the RS-232 interface
cable. Plug the power supply into an appropriate outlet.
16
Copyright 2013 Unitech Electronics Co., Ltd. All rights reserved. Unitech is a registered trademark of Unitech Electronics Co., Ltd.
4. Select the RS-232 host type by scanning the appropriate bar code from RS-232
Host Types.
5. To modify any other parameter options, scan the appropriate bar codes in this
chapter.
RS-232 Host Types
To select an RS-232 host interface, scan one of the following bar codes.
1
Scanning Standard RS-232 activates the RS-232 driver, but does not change port settings
(e.g., parity, data bits, handshaking). Selecting another RS-232 host type bar code changes
these settings. The CUTE host disables all parameter scanning, including Set Defaults. If
you inadvertently select CUTE, scan *Enable Parameter Bar code Scanning, and then
change the host selection.
17

Baud Rate
Baud rate is the number of bits of data transmitted per second. Set the digital
scanner's baud rate to match the baud rate setting of the host device. Otherwise,
data may not reach the host device or may reach it in distorted form.
Note: The digital scanner does not support baud rates below 9600.
18
Copyright 2013 Unitech Electronics Co., Ltd. All rights reserved. Unitech is a registered trademark of Unitech Electronics Co., Ltd.
Parity
A parity check bit is the most significant bit of each ASCII coded character. Select
the parity type according to host device requirements.
Select Odd parity to set the parity bit value to 0 or 1, based on data, to ensure
that the coded character contains an odd number of 1 bits.
Select Even parity to set the parity bit value is set to 0 or 1, based on data, to
ensure that the coded character contains an even number of 1 bits.
Select None when no parity bit is required.
Stop Bit Select
The stop bit(s) at the end of each transmitted character marks the end of
transmission of one character and prepares the receiving device for the next
character in the serial data stream. Select the number of stop bits (one or two)
based on the number the receiving terminal is programmed to accommodate. Set
the number of stop bits to match host device requirements.
Data Bits
This parameter allows the digital scanner to interface with devices requiring a 7-bit
or 8-bit ASCII protocol.
19
Copyright 2013 Unitech Electronics Co., Ltd. All rights reserved. Unitech is a registered trademark of Unitech Electronics Co., Ltd.
Check Receive Errors
Select whether or not to check the parity, framing, and overrun of received
characters. The parity value of received characters is verified against the parity
parameter selected above.
Hardware Handshaking
The data interface consists of an RS-232 port designed to operate either with or
without the hardware handshaking lines, Request to Send (RTS), and Clear to
Send (CTS).
Disable Standard RTS/CTS handshaking to transmit scan data as it becomes
available. Select Standard RTS/CTS handshaking to transmit scan data according
to the following sequence:
The digital scanner reads the CTS line for activity. If CTS is asserted, the
scanner waits up to Host Serial Response Time-out for the host to de-assert the
CTS line. If, after Host Serial Response Time-out (default), the CTS line is still
asserted, the scanner sounds a transmit error, and discards any scanned data.
When the CTS line is de-asserted, the digital scanner asserts the RTS line and
waits up to Host Serial Response Time-out for the host to assert CTS. When the
host asserts CTS, the scanner transmits data. If, after Host Serial Response
Time-out (default), the CTS line is not asserted, the scanner sounds a transmit
error, and discards the data.
When data transmission completes, the digital scanner de-asserts RTS 10 msec
after sending the last character.
The host should respond by negating CTS. The digital scanner checks for a
de-asserted CTS upon the next transmission of data.
During the transmission of data, the CTS line should be asserted. If CTS is
deasserted for more than 50 ms between characters, the digital scanner aborts
transmission, sounds a transmission error, and discards the data.
If this communication sequence fails, the digital scanner issues an error indication.
In this case, the data is lost and must be rescanned.
If hardware handshaking and software handshaking are both enabled, hardware
handshaking takes precedence.
Note: The DTR signal is jumpered to the active state.
None: Scan this bar code to disable hardware handshaking.
Standard RTS/CTS: Scan this bar code to select Standard RTS/CTS Hardware
Handshaking.
20
Copyright 2013 Unitech Electronics Co., Ltd. All rights reserved. Unitech is a registered trademark of Unitech Electronics Co., Ltd.
RTS/CTS Option 1: If you select RTS/CTS Option 1, the digital scanner asserts
RTS before transmitting and ignores the state of CTS. The scanner de-asserts
RTS when the transmission completes.
RTS/CTS Option 2: If you select Option 2, RTS is always high or low
(user-programmed logic level). However, the digital scanner waits for CTS to be
asserted before transmitting data. If CTS is not asserted within Host Serial
Response Time-out (default), the scanner issues an error indication and
discards the data.
RTS/CTS Option 3: If you select Option 3, the digital scanner asserts RTS prior
to any data transmission, regardless of the state of CTS. The scanner waits up
to Host Serial Response Time-out (default) for CTS to be asserted. If CTS is not
asserted during this time, the scanner issues an error indication and discards
the data. The digital scanner de-asserts RTS when transmission is complete.
Software Handshaking
This parameter offers control of the data transmission process in addition to, or
instead of that offered by hardware handshaking. There are five options.
If software handshaking and hardware handshaking are both enabled, hardware
handshaking takes precedence.
None: Select this to transmit data immediately. The digital scanner expects no
response from the host.
ACK/NAK: If you select this option, after transmitting data, the digital scanner
expects either an ACK or NAK response from the host. When it receives a NAK,
the scanner transmits the same data again and waits for either an ACK or NAK.
After three unsuccessful attempts to send data after receiving NAKs, the digital
scanner issues an error indication and discards the data.
The digital scanner waits up to the programmable Host Serial Response
Time-out to receive an ACK or NAK. If the scanner does not get a response in
this time, it issues an error indication and discards the data. There are no retries
21

when a time-out occurs.
ENQ: If you select this option, the digital scanner waits for an ENQ character
from the host before transmitting data. If it does not receive an ENQ within the
Host Serial Response Time-out, the digital scanner issues an error indication
and discards the data. The host must transmit an ENQ character at least every
Host Serial Response Time-out to prevent transmission errors.
ACK/NAK with ENQ: This combines the two previous options. For
re-transmissions of data, due to a NAK from the host, an additional ENQ is not
required.
XON/XOFF: An XOFF character turns the digital scanner transmission off until
the scanner receives an XON character. There are two situations for
XON/XOFF:
The digital scanner receives an XOFF before has data to send. When the
scanner has data to send, it waits up to Host Serial Response Time-out for
an XON character before transmission. If it does not receive the XON
within this time, the digital scanner issues an error indication and discards
the data.
The digital scanner receives an XOFF during a transmission. Data
transmission then stops after sending the current byte. When the digital
scanner receives an XON character, it sends the rest of the data message.
The digital scanner waits indefinitely for the XON.
22

Host Serial Response Time-out
This parameter specifies how long the digital scanner waits for an ACK, NAK, or
CTS before determining that a transmission error occurred. This only applies when
in one of the ACK/NAK software handshaking modes, or RTS/CTS hardware
handshaking mode.
RTS Line State
This parameter sets the idle state of the Serial Host RTS line. Scan a bar code
below to select Low RTS or High RTS line state.
23
Copyright 2013 Unitech Electronics Co., Ltd. All rights reserved. Unitech is a registered trademark of Unitech Electronics Co., Ltd.
Beep on <BEL>
If you enable this parameter, the digital scanner issues a beep when it detects a
<BEL> character on the RS-232 serial line. <BEL> indicates an illegal entry or
other important event.
Intercharacter Delay
This parameter specifies the intercharacter delay inserted between character
transmissions.

Chapter 2
Output Data Editing
Transmit Code ID Character
A Code ID character identifies the code type of a scanned bar code. This is useful
when decoding more than one code type. In addition to any single character prefix
already selected, the Code ID character is inserted between the prefix and the
decoded symbol.
Select no Code ID character, a Symbol Code ID character, or an AIM Code ID
character.
Note: If you enable Symbol Code ID Character or AIM Code ID Character, and enable Transmit “No
Read” Messag, the digital scanner appends the code ID for Code 39 to the NR message.
Prefix/Suffix Values
You can append a prefix and/or one or two suffixes to scan data for use in data
editing. To set a value for a prefix or suffix, scan a four-digit number (i.e., four bar
codes) that corresponds to that value.
When using host commands to set the prefix or suffix, set the key category
parameter to 1, then set the 3-digit decimal value.
To correct an error or change a selection, scan Cancel.
Note: To use Prefix/Suffix values, first set the Scan Data Transmission Format as shown below.
29

Scan Data Transmission Format
To change the scan data format, scan one of the following eight bar codes
corresponding to the desired format.
Note: If using this parameter, do not use ADF rules to set the prefix/suffix.
To set values for the prefix and/or suffix, see Prefix/Suffix Values.
30
Copyright 2013 Unitech Electronics Co., Ltd. All rights reserved. Unitech is a registered trademark of Unitech Electronics Co., Ltd.
FN1 Substitution Values
The wedge and USB HID keyboard hosts support a FN1 Substitution feature.
Enabling this substitutes any FN1 character (0x1b) in an EAN128 bar code with a
value. This value defaults to 7013 (Enter key).
When using host commands to set the FN1 substitution value, set the key category
parameter to 1, and then set the 3-digit keystroke value. See the ASCII character
set table for the current host interface for the desired value.
To select a FN1 substitution value via bar code menus:
1. Scan the bar code below.
2. Locate the keystroke desired for FN1 substitution in the ASCII character set
table in the appropriate host interface chapter. Enter the 4-digit ASCII value by
scanning each digit.
To correct an error or change the selection, scan Cancel.

processing continues until the bar code decodes, you release the trigger, or the
Decode Session Timeout occurs.
Presentation (Blink) - The digital scanner activates decode processing when
it detects a bar code in its field of view. After a period of non-use, the digital
scanner enters a low power mode, in which the LEDs turn off until the digital
scanner senses motion.
Host - A host command issues the triggering signal. The decoder interprets an
actual trigger pull as a Level triggering option.
Auto Aim - This trigger mode turns on the LED aiming dot when the scanner is
lifted. A trigger pull activates decode processing. After 2 seconds of inactivity
the aiming pattern shuts off.
Auto Aim with Illumination - This trigger mode turns on the aiming pattern
and internal illumination LEDs when the decoder senses motion. A trigger pull
activates decode processing. After 2 seconds of inactivity the aiming pattern
and internal illumination LEDs automatically shut off.

containing either of two selected lengths. Select lengths using the numeric bar
codes in the appendix of Numeric Bar Codes. For example, to decode only Matrix 2
of 5 symbols containing either 2 or 14 characters, select Matrix 2 of 5 - Two
Discrete Lengths, and then scan 0, 2, 1, and then 4. To correct an error or to
change the selection, scan the Cancel bar code.
Length Within Range - Select this option to decode a Matrix 2 of 5 symbol with
a specific length range. Select lengths using the numeric bar codes in the appendix
of Numeric Bar Codes. For example, to decode Matrix 2 of 5 symbols containing
between 4 and 12 characters, first scan Matrix 2 of 5 - Length Within Range.
Then scan 0, 4, 1, and 2 (enter a leading zero for single digit numbers). To correct
an error or change the selection, scan the Cancel bar code.
Any Length - Scan this option to decode Matrix 2 of 5 symbols containing any
number of characters within the decoder’s capability.

GS1 DataBar Limited Security Level
The decoder offers four levels of decode security for GS1 DataBar Limited bar
codes. There is an inverse relationship between security and decoder
aggressiveness. Increasing the level of security may result in reduced
aggressiveness in scanning, so only choose the level of security necessary.
Level 1 – No clear margin required. This complies with the original GS1
standard, yet might result in erroneous1 decoding of the DataBar Limited bar
code when scanning some UPC symbols that start with the digits “9” and “7”.
61
Copyright 2013 Unitech Electronics Co., Ltd. All rights reserved. Unitech is a registered trademark of Unitech Electronics Co., Ltd.
Level 2 – Automatic risk detection. This level of security may result in erroneous
decoding of DataBar Limited bar codes when scanning some UPC symbols. If a
misdecode is detected, the decoder operates in Level 3 or Level 1.
Level 3 – Security level reflects newly proposed GS1 standard that requires a
5X trailing clear margin.
Level 4 – Security level extends beyond the standard required by GS1. This
level of security requires a 5X leading and trailing clear margin.
Note: It may result in erroneous decoding due to Databar Limited and UPC symbologies.

Security Level
The decoder offers four levels of decode security for delta bar codes, which include
UPC/EAN and Code 93. Select increasing levels of security for decreasing levels of
bar code quality. There is an inverse relationship between security and decoder
aggressiveness, so choose only that level of security necessary for any given
application.
Security Level 0: This setting allows the decoder to operate in its most
aggressive state, while providing sufficient security in decoding most “in-spec”
bar codes.
Security Level 1: This default setting eliminates most misdecodes.
Security Level 2: Select this option if Security level 1 fails to eliminate
misdecodes.
Security Level 3: If you selected Security Level 2 and misdecodes still occur,
select this security level. Be advised, selecting this option is an extreme
measure against mis-decoding severely out of spec bar codes. Selecting this
level of security significantly impairs the decoding ability of the decoder. If you
need this level of security, try to improve the quality of the bar codes.
Intercharacter Gap Size
The Code 39 and Codabar symbologies have an intercharacter gap that is typically
quite small. Due to various bar code-printing technologies, this gap can grow larger
than the maximum size allowed, preventing the decoder from decoding the symbol.
If this problem occurs, scan the Large Intercharacter Gaps parameter to tolerate
these out-of-specification bar codes.

Macro PDF Features
Macro PDF is a special feature for concatenating multiple PDF symbols into one file.
The decoder can decode symbols that are encoded with this feature, and can store
more than 64 Kb of decoded data stored in up to 50 MacroPDF symbols.
CAUTION: When printing, keep each Macro PDF sequence separate, as each sequence has unique identifiers.
Do not mix bar codes from several Macro PDF sequences, even if they encode the same data. When scanning
Macro PDF sequences, scan the entire sequence without interruption. When scanning a mixed sequence, two
long low beeps (Low/Low) indicates an inconsistent file ID or inconsistent symbology error.

N = No transmission.
Macro PDF Transmit / Decode Mode Symbols
Select one of the options below for handling Macro PDF decoding. In Buffer All
Symbols the decoder can handle sets of up to 50 maximum-sized Macro PDF
symbols. In all other modes there is no limit to the size of the MacroPDF set.
Buffer All Symbols / Transmit Macro PDF When Complete: This transmits all
decode data from an entire Macro PDF sequence only when the entire
sequence is scanned and decoded. Use the beeper and LED signals provided
with the MS842 when using this mode to ensure proper user feedback. If the
decode data exceeds the limit of 50 symbols, there is no transmission because
the entire sequence was not scanned. Use the parameter Flush Macro Buffer to
purge the buffer.
Transmit Any Symbol in Set / No Particular Order: This transmits data from
each Macro PDF symbol as decoded, regardless of the sequence (although
some error handling is performed). When selecting this mode, enable Transmit
Macro PDF Control Header. Also use the beeper and LED signals provided with
the MS842 to ensure proper user feedback.
70
Copyright 2013 Unitech Electronics Co., Ltd. All rights reserved. Unitech is a registered trademark of Unitech Electronics Co., Ltd.
Passthrough All Symbols: This transmits and decodes all Macro PDF symbols
and performs no processing. In this mode the host is responsible for detecting
and parsing the Macro PDF sequences.
Use this mode when the decoder’s BEEPER_ON signal is not used to drive a
beeper. In the other modes, some Macro PDF scanning sequences provide audible
feedback only, so if BEEPER_ON is not used, no user feedback is provided. All
actions marked No Tranmission provide no feedback unless the BEEPER_ON
signal is used.
By using Passthrough All Symbols mode every user decode is transmitted to the
host where the host software can provide the appropriate feedback.
Transmit Macro PDF Control Header
When enabled, this activates transmission of the control header, which contains the
segment index and the file ID, in Macro PDF symbols. For example, the field may
be: \92800000\725\120\343. The five digits after the \928 are the segment index (or
block index), and \725\120\343 is the file ID.
Enable this when selecting Transmit Any Symbol in Set / No Particular Order for the
Macro PDF Transmit /Decode Mode Symbols, and disable this when selecting
Buffer All Symbols / Transmit Macro PDF When Complete. This parameter has no
effect when Passthrough All Symbols is selected.

Escape Characters
This enables the backslash (\) character as an Escape character for systems that
can process transmissions containing special data sequences. Scan a bar code
below to either format special data according to the GLI (Global Label Identifier)
protocol, or to disable this parameter. This parameter only affects the data portion
of a Macro PDF symbol transmission; the Macro PDF Control Header (if enabled) is
always sent with GLI formatting.
Flush Macro Buffer
This flushes the buffer of all decoded Macro PDF data stored to that point,
transmits it to the host device, and aborts from Macro PDF mode.
Abort Macro PDF Entry
This clears all currently-stored Macro PDF data in the buffer without transmission
and aborts from Macro PDF mode.
