Connecting Power (if required)
If your host does not provide power to the scanner, you will need an external power
connection to the scanner:
1. Connect the interface cable to the back of the scanner, as described in Installing
the Interface Cable on page 1-3.
2. Connect the other end of the interface cable to the host (refer to your host manual
to locate the correct port).
3. Plug the power supply into the power jack on the interface cable.
4. Plug the other end of the power supply into an AC outlet.
Configuring Your Scanner
Configure your scanner using the bar codes included in this manual. Refer to Chapter 4,
User Preferences for information about programming your scanner using bar code menus.
The scanner supports Keyboard Wedge and USB interfaces. Each host specific chapter
describes how to set up each of these connections.
Removing the Interface Cable
To remove the interface cable:
1. Unplug the installed cable’s modular connector by depressing the connector clip
and gently pulling back.

Scanning in Single-Line Mode
Install and program your scanner. (Refer to each host chapter and Chapter 4, User
Preferences, Chapter 7, Symbologies, Chapter 8, Miscellaneous Scanner Options, and
Chapter 9, Advanced Data Formatting for instructions on programming your scanner.) If
you need assistance, contact Wasp Technical Support at http://support.waspbarcode.com.
1. Ensure all connections are secure. (Refer to the host chapter for your scanner.)
2. Pick up the scanner. Press and then release the trigger. A single scan line
displays.
Figure 2-2. Scanning in Hand-Held Mode
3. Ensure the scan line crosses every bar and space of the symbol.

WRONG
012345
4. Depress and hold the trigger until either:
a.
The scanner reads the bar code. The scanner beeps, the LED flashes and the
laser turns off.
b.
The scanner does not read the barcode and the laser turns off.
5. Release the trigger. This causes the aim scan line to reappear. To read another
bar code in single-line mode, repeat steps 2, 3 and 4. This step can be repeated
as often as desired.
6. After a programmable time period, the omni-directional scan pattern displays. This
indicates the scanner is ready to read bar codes without use of the trigger.
7. For more information on beeper definitions, refer to Table 2-1.

Scanning
Scanning in Omni Mode
In this mode, an omni scan pattern provides rapid, orientation-free scanning. This scan
pattern is used with either hands-free or hand-held scanning..
To scan a bar code, direct it in toward the window of the scanner (“presentation” scanning,
see Figure 2-7 on page 2-6) or from side to side in a sweeping motion (“swipe” scanning,
see Figure 2-8 on page 2-6).
1. Ensure all cable connections are secure.
2. Insert the scanner in the optional hands-free stand by placing the front of the
scanner into the stand’s “cradle” (see Figure 2-3) or place the scanner on a flat
surface (see Figure 2-4).
3. To scan a bar code, present the bar code and ensure the scan lines cross every
bar and space of the symbol. The scan pattern becomes steady when the scanner
detects the bar code. See Figure 2-5 on page 2-5 for scanning in hands-free mode
and Figure 2-6 on page 2-5 for scanning in hand-held mode.

Communication with the bus must be established
before the scanner can operate at the highest
power level.
This power-up beep occurs
more than once.
The USB bus may put the scanner in a state where
power to the scanner is cycled on and off more than
once. This is normal and usually happens when the
PC cold boots.
Selecting Beeper Volume using Trigger
The scanner emits a short beep when it successfully reads a bar code. The volume of the
beep can be changed either by scanning the appropriate bar code in Beeper Volume on
page 4-7, or by utilizing the trigger as follows:
1. Press and hold the trigger for an extended period of time (approximately 5
seconds). The scanner cycles through three settings (Low, Medium, High) emitting
a 2-beep tone at each setting.
2. To select a particular setting, release the trigger after the desired 2-beep tone is
heard.

Aiming
Do not hold the scanner directly over the bar code. Laser light reflecting directly back into
the scanner from the bar code is known as specular reflection. This specular reflection can
make decoding difficult.
You can tilt the scanner up to 45° forward or back and achieve a successful decode (Figure
2-9). Simple practice quickly shows what tolerances to work within.

User Preferences
Introduction
You have the option to program the WPS100 scanner to perform various functions, or
activate different features. This chapter describes each user preference feature and
provides the programming bar codes necessary for selecting these features for your
WPS100 scanner. Before programming, follow the instructions in Chapter 1, Getting
Started.
Your WPS100 is shipped with the settings shown in the User Preferences Default Table on
page 4-3 (also see Appendix A, Standard Default Parameters for all host device and
miscellaneous scanner defaults). If the default values suit your requirements, programming
may not be necessary.
Features values are set by scanning single bar codes or short bar code sequences. The
settings are stored in non-volatile memory and are preserved even when the scanner is
powered down.
4-1
Wasp WPS100 Product Reference Guide
If you are not using a USB cable, you must select a host type (see each host chapter for
specific host information). After you hear the power-up beeps, select a host type. This only
needs to be done once, upon the first power-up when connected to a new host.
To return all features to their default values, all you need to do is scan the Set All Defaults
bar code on page 4-5. Throughout the programming bar code menus, default values are
indicated with asterisks (*).
* Indicates Default
*High Frequency
Feature/Option
Scanning Sequence Examples
In most cases you need only scan one bar code to set a specific parameter value. For
example, if you want to set the beeper tone to high, simply scan the High Frequency
(beeper tone) bar code listed under Beeper Tone on page 4-6. The scanner issues a short
high beep and the LED turns green, signifying a successful parameter entry.
Other parameters, such as specifying Serial Response Time-Out or setting Data
Transmission Formats, require that you scan several bar codes. Refer to Host Serial
Response Time-out on page 6-20 and Scan Data Options on page 8-9 for descriptions of
this procedure.
Errors While Scanning
Unless otherwise specified, if you make an error during a scanning sequence, just re-scan
the correct parameter.

Low Power Blink
After a period of inactivity, the scanner will go into a reduced power mode. This parameter
controls how aggressively power is conserved, and therefore determines the method of
waking the scanner up.
If “Low Power - Blink Mode” is selected, then the scanner (after a period of inactivity) will
blink infrequently to save power. To restore the scanner to full power mode, the user must
simply use the scanner by presenting a barcode.
If “Motor and Laser Shut Down” is selected, then the scanner (after a period of inactivity)
will turn off the motor and laser, but leave the green Power LED lit. The user must then
depress the trigger to awaken the scanner to its full power mode.

Keyboard Wedge Interface
Introduction
This chapter covers Keyboard Wedge interface information for setting up your scanner.
This interface type is used to attach the scanner between the keyboard and host computer.
The scanner translates the bar code data into keystrokes. The host computer accepts the
keystrokes as if they originate from the keyboard.
This mode of operation allows adding bar code reading functionality to a system designed
for manual keyboard input. In this mode the keyboard keystrokes are simply passed
through.
Throughout the programming bar code menus, default values are indicated with asterisks
(*).

ASCII Character Set
Note: Code 39 Full ASCII interprets the bar code special character
($ + % /) preceding a Code 39 character and assigns an ASCII
character value to the pair. For example, when Code 39 Full ASCII
is enabled and a +B is scanned, it is interpreted as b, %J as ?, and
%V as @. Scanning ABC%I outputs the keystroke equivalent of
ABC >.

Chapter 7
Symbologies
Introduction
This chapter describes all symbology features and provides the programming bar codes
necessary for selecting these features for your WPS100 scanner. Before programming,
follow the instructions in Chapter 1, Getting Started.
Your scanner is shipped with the settings shown in the Symbology Default Table on page
7-3 (also see Appendix A, Standard Default Parameters for all host device and
miscellaneous scanner defaults). If the default values suit your requirements, programming
may not be necessary. Features values are set by scanning single bar codes or short bar
code sequences.
To return all features to their default values, all you need to do is scan the Set All Defaults
bar code on page 4-5.
If you are not using a USB cable you must select a host type. Refer to each host chapter
for specific host information.
7-1
Wasp WPS100 Product Reference Guide
Scanning Sequence Examples
In most cases you need only scan one bar code to set a specific parameter value. For
example, if you want to transmit bar code data without the UPC-A check digit, simply scan
the Do Not Transmit UPC-A Check Digit bar code listed under Transmit UPC-A/UPC-E/UPCE1 Check Digit on page 7-16. The scanner issues a short high beep and the LED turns
green, signifying a successful parameter entry.
Other parameters, such as Set Length(s) for D 2 of 5 require that you scan several bar
codes in the proper sequence. Refer to the individual parameter, like Set Length(s) for D
2 of 5, for this procedure.
Errors While Scanning
Unless otherwise specified, if you make an error during a scanning sequence, just re-scan
the correct parameter.

Symbology Default Parameters
Table 7-1 lists the defaults for all symbologies parameters. If you wish to change any
option, scan the appropriate bar code(s) provided in the Symbologies Parameters section
beginning on 7-8.

Decode UPC/EAN Supplementals
Supplementals are bar codes appended according to specific format conventions (e.g.,
UPC-A+2, UPC-E+2, EAN 13+2). Six options are available.
•
If Decode UPC/EAN Only With Supplementals is selected, UPC/EAN symbols
without supplementals are not decoded.
•
If Ignore Supplementals is selected, and the scanner is presented with a
UPC/EAN with a supplemental, the UPC/EAN is decoded and the supplemental
bar code is ignored.
•
An Autodiscriminate Option is also available. If this option is selected, choose an
appropriate UPC/EAN Supplemental Redundancy value from the next page. A
value of 5 or more is recommended.
•
Select Enable 378/379 Supplemental Mode to enable only EAN-13 bar codes
starting with a ‘378’ or ‘379’ prefix to be delayed by the supplemental search
process. All other UPC/EAN bar codes are exempted from the search and are
reported instantly upon their decode.
•
Select Enable 978 Supplemental Mode to enable only EAN13 bar codes starting
with a ‘978’ prefix to be delayed by the supplemental search process. All other
UPC/EAN bar codes are exempted from the search and are reported instantly upon
their decode.
•
Select Enable Smart Supplemental Mode to enable only EAN13 bar codes
starting with a ‘378’, ‘379’, or ‘978’ prefix to be delayed by the supplemental search
process. All other UPC/EAN bar codes are exempted from the search and are
reported instantly upon their decode.
Note: In order to minimize the risk of invalid data transmission, it is
recommended that you select either to decode or ignore
supplemental characters.

Set Lengths for Code 39
The length of a code refers to the number of characters (i.e., human readable characters),
including check digit(s) the code contains. Lengths for Code 39 may be set for any length,
one or two discrete lengths, or lengths within a specific range. If Code 39 Full ASCII is
enabled, Length Within a Range or Any Length are the preferred options.
Note: When setting lengths for different bar code types by scanning single
digit numbers, single digit numbers must always be preceded by a
leading zero.
One Discrete Length - This option allows you to decode only those Code 39 symbols
containing a selected length. Lengths are selected from the numeric bar codes beginning
on page D-1 in Appendix D. For example, to decode only Code 39 symbols with 14
characters, scan Code 39 - One Discrete Length, then scan 1 followed by 4. If you make
an error or wish to change your selection, scan Cancel on page D-5.
Code 39 - One Discrete Length
Two Discrete Lengths - This option allows you to decode only those Code 39 symbols
containing either of two selected lengths. Lengths are selected from the numeric bar
codes beginning on page D-1 in Appendix D. For example, to decode only those Code 39
symbols containing either 2 or 14 characters, select Code 39 - Two Discrete Lengths,
then scan 0, 2, 1, and then 4. If you make an error or wish to change your selection,
scan Cancel on page D-5.

Symbologies
Set Lengths for Code 39 (Continued)

between 4 and 12 characters, first scan Code 39 - Length Within Range. Then scan 0, 4,
1, and 2 (single digit numbers must always be preceded by a leading zero). If you make an
error or wish to change your selection, scan Cancel on page D-5.

Code 39 Buffering (Scan & Store)
This feature allows the scanner to accumulate data from multiple Code 39 symbols.
When you select the Scan and Store option (Buffer Code 39), all Code 39 symbols having
a leading space as a first character are temporarily buffered in the unit to be transmitted
later. The leading space is not buffered.
Decode of a valid Code 39 symbol with no leading space causes transmission in sequence
of all buffered data in a first-in first-out format, plus transmission of the “triggering” symbol.
See the following pages for further details.
When the Do Not Buffer Code 39 option is selected, all decoded Code 39 symbols are
transmitted immediately without being stored in the buffer.
This feature affects Code 39 only. If you select Buffer Code 39, we recommend that you
configure the scanner to decode Code 39 symbology only.

*Do Not Buffer Code 39
While there is data in the transmission buffer, selecting Do Not Buffer Code 39 is not
allowed. The buffer holds 200 bytes of information.
To disable Code 39 buffering when there is data in the transmission buffer, first force
the buffer transmission (see Transmit Buffer on page 7-41) or clear the buffer.
Buffer Data
To buffer data, Code 39 buffering must be enabled and a Code 39 symbol must be read
with a space immediately following the start pattern.
•
Unless the data overflows the transmission buffer, the scanner issues a lo/hi beep
to indicate successful decode and buffering. (For overflow conditions, see
Overfilling Transmission Buffer.)
•
The scanner adds the decoded data excluding the leading space to the
transmission buffer.
•
No transmission occurs.
Clear Transmission Buffer
To clear the transmission buffer, scan the Clear Buffer bar code below, which contains only
a start character, a dash (minus), and a stop character.
•
The scanner issues a short hi/lo/hi beep.
•
The scanner erases the transmission buffer.
•
No transmission occurs.
Clear Buffer

Symbologies
Note: The Clear Buffer contains only the dash (minus) character. In order
to scan this command, be sure Code 39 length is set to include
length 1.
Transmit Buffer
There are two methods to transmit the Code 39 buffer.
1. Scan the Transmit Buffer bar code below. Only a start character, a plus (+), and a stop
character.
•
The scanner transmits and clears the buffer.
•
The scanner issues a lo/hi beep.
Transmit Buffer
2. Scan a Code 39 bar code with a leading character other than a space.
•
The scanner issues a hi/lo beep to indicate a good decode and that buffering of the
decode data has occurred.
•
The scanner transmits and clears the buffer.
•
The scanner signals that the buffer was transmitted with a lo/hi beep.
Note: The Transmit Buffer contains only a plus (+) character. In order to
scan this command, be sure Code 39 length is set to include length
1.
7-41
Wasp WPS100 Product Reference Guide
Overfilling Transmission Buffer
The Code 39 buffer holds 200 characters. If the symbol just read results in an overflow of
the transmission buffer:
•
The scanner indicates that the symbol was rejected by issuing three long, high
beeps.
•
No transmission occurs. The data in the buffer is not affected.
Attempt to Transmit an Empty Buffer
If the symbol just read was the Transmit Buffer symbol and the Code 39 buffer is empty:
•
A short lo/hi/lo beep signals that the buffer is empty.
•
No transmission occurs.
•
The buffer remains empty.

necessary for any given application.
Security Level 0
This is the default setting which allows the scanner to operate fastest, while providing
sufficient security in decoding most “in-spec” bar codes.
* Security Level 0
Security Level 1
Choose this option if misdecodes occur. This level should eliminate most misdecodes.
Security Level 1
7-83
Wasp WPS100 Product Reference Guide
Security Level 2
Choose this option if Security Level 1 fails to eliminate misdecodes.
Security Level 2
Security Level 3
If you have tried Security Level 2, and are still experiencing misdecodes, select this security
level. Be advised, selecting this option is an extreme measure against misdecoding
severely out of spec bar codes. Selection of this level of security may significantly impair
the decoding ability of the scanner. If this level of security is necessary, you should try to
improve the quality of your bar codes.
Security Level 3

Symbologies
Symbology - Intercharacter Gap
The Code 39 and Codabar symbologies have an intercharacter gap that is customarily
quite small. Due to various bar code-printing technologies, this gap may grow larger than
the maximum size allowed, causing the scanner to be unable to decode the symbol. If this
problem is encountered, then the “Large Intercharacter Gaps” parameter should be
scanned, to tolerate these out-of-specification barcodes.

Miscellaneous Scanner Options
Introduction
This chapter includes commonly used bar codes to customize how your data is transmitted
to your host device. In addition to these bar codes for data formatting, refer to each host
chapter for the appropriate host connections and host device features for your scanner.
Refer to Chapter 7, Symbologies and Chapter 9, Advanced Data Formatting for
customizing data for transmission to your host device.
Before programming, follow the instructions in Chapter 1, Getting Started.
Your scanner is shipped with the settings shown in the Miscellaneous Scanner Options
Default Table on page 8-3 (also see Appendix A, Standard Default Parameters for all host
device and miscellaneous scanner defaults). If the default values suit your requirements,
programming may not be necessary. Features values are set by scanning single bar codes
or short bar code sequences.
8-1
Wasp WPS100 Product Reference Guide
Scanning Sequence Examples
In most cases you need only scan one bar code to set a specific parameter value.
Parameters, such as Prefix Value, require that you scan several bar codes in the proper
sequence. Refer to each individual parameter for descriptions of this procedure.
Errors While Scanning
Unless otherwise specified, if you make an error during a scanning sequence, just re-scan
the correct parameter.

Miscellaneous Scanner Parameters
Transmit Code ID Character
A Code ID character identifies the code type of a scanned bar code. This may be useful
when the scanner is 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.
The user may select no Code ID character, a Symbol Code ID character, or an AIM Code
ID character. For Code ID Characters, see Symbol Code Identifiers on page B-1 and AIM
Code Identifiers on page B-3.

Prefix/Suffix Values
A prefix/suffix may be appended to scan data for use in data editing. These values are set
by scanning a four-digit number (i.e., four bar codes) that corresponds to key codes for
various terminals. Code 39 Full ASCII to Full ASCII Coorelation is host-dependent, and
therefore described in the “ASCII Character Set” Table for the appropriate interface.
Numeric bar codes begin on page D-1 in Appendix D. If you make an error or wish to

Chapter 9
Advanced Data Formatting
Introduction
Advanced Data Formatting (ADF) is a means of customizing data before transmission to
your host device. Scan data can be edited to suit your particular requirements.
ADF can be implemented through scanning a related series of bar codes, which begin on
page 9-7.
Rules: Criteria Linked to Actions
In ADF, data is customized through rules. These rules perform detailed actions when the
data meets certain criteria. One rule may consist of single or multiple criteria applied to
single or multiple actions.
For instance, a data formatting rule could be the following:
Criteria:
When scan data is Code 39, length 12, and data at the start position is
the string “129”,
Actions:
pad all sends with zeros to length 8,
send all data up to X,
send a space.
If a Code 39 bar code of 1299X1559828 is scanned, the following is transmitted:
00001299<space>. If a Code 39 bar code of 1299X15598 is scanned, this rule is ignored
because the length criteria has not been met.
The rule specifies the editing conditions and requirements before data transmission occurs.
9-1
Wasp WPS100 Product Reference Guide
Using ADF Bar Codes
When you program a rule, make sure the rule is logically correct. Plan ahead before you
start scanning.
To program each data formatting rule:
•
Start the Rule. Scan the Begin New Rule bar code on page 9-7.
•
Criteria. Scan the bar codes for all pertinent criteria. Criteria can include code type
(e.g., Code 128), code length, or data that contains a specific character string (e.g.,
the digits “129”). These options are described in Criteria on page 9-12.
•
Actions. Scan all actions related to, or affecting, these criteria. The actions of a
rule specify how to format the data for transmission. These options are described
in ADF Bar Code Menu Example on page 9-2.
•
Save the Rule. Scan the Save Rule bar code on page 9-8. This places the rule in
the “top” position in the rule buffer.
•
If you make errors during this process, some special-purpose bar codes may be
useful: Erase Criteria and Start Again, Erase Actions and Start Again, Erase
Previously Saved Rule, etc.
Criteria, actions, and entire rules may be erased by scanning the appropriate bar code (see
page 9-8).
Scanning in Single-Line Mode on page 2-2 help guide you through the programming steps.
ADF Bar Code Menu Example
This section provides an example of how ADF rules are entered and used for scan data.
An auto parts distribution center wants to encode manufacturer ID, part number, and
destination code into their own Code 128 bar codes. The distribution center also has
products that carry UPC bar codes, placed there by the manufacturer. The Code 128 bar
codes have the following format:
MMMMMPPPPPDD
Where:
M = Manufacturer ID
P = Part Number
D = Destination Code
9-2
Advanced Data Formatting
The distribution center uses a PC with dedicated control characters for manufacturer ID
<CTRL M>, part number <CTRL P>, and destination code <CTRL D>. At this center the
UPC data is treated as manufacturer ID code.
The following rules need to be entered:
When scanning data of code type Code 128, send the next 5 characters, send the
manufacturer ID key <CTRL M>, send the next 5 characters, send the part number key
<CTRL P>, send the next 2 characters, send the destination code key <CTRL D>.
When scanning data of code type UPC/EAN, send all data, send the manufacturer ID
key <CTRL M>.
To enter these rules, follow the steps below:

code on page 9-9.
Alternate Rule Sets
ADF rules may be grouped into one of four alternate sets which can be turned on and off
when needed. This is useful when you want to format the same message in different ways.
For example, a Code 128 bar code contains the following information:
Class (2 digits), Stock Number (8) digits, Price (5 digits)
This bar code might look like this:
245671243701500
where:
Class = 24
Stock Number = 56712437
Price = 01500
Ordinarily you would send this data as follows:
24 (class key)
56712437 (stock key)
01500 (enter key)
But, when there is a sale, you may want to send only the following:
24 (class key)
56712437 (stock key)
and the cashier will key the price manually.
To implement this, you would first enter an ADF rule that applies to the normal situation.
This rule may look like this:
When scanning a bar code of length 15, send the next 2 characters, send the
class key, send the next 8 characters, send the stock key, send the data that
remains, send the Enter key.
The “sale” rule may look like this:
When scanning a bar code of length 15, send the next 2 characters, send the
class key, send the next 8 characters, send the stock key.
9-4
Advanced Data Formatting
To switch between the two sets of rules, a “switching rule” must be programmed. This rule
specifies what type of bar code must be scanned to switch between the rule sets. For
example, in the case of the “sale” rule above, the rule programmer wants the cashier to
scan the bar code “M” before a sale. To do this, a rule can be entered as follows:
When scanning a bar code of length 1 that begins with “M”, select rule set
number 1.
Another rule could be programmed to switch back.
When scanning a bar code of length 1 that begins with “N”, turn off rule set
number 1.
The switching back to normal rules can also be done in the “sale” rule. For example, the
rule may look like this:
When scanning a bar code of length 15, send the next 2 characters, send the
class key, send the next 8 characters, send the stock key, turn off rule set 1.
It is recommended that you scan the Disable All Rule Sets bar code on page 9-11 after
programming a rule belonging to an alternate rule set.
In addition to enabling and disabling rule sets within the rules, you can enable or disable
them by scanning the appropriate bar codes on 9-11.
Rules Hierarchy (in Bar Codes)
The order of programming individual rules is important.The most general rule should be
programmed last.
All programmed rules are stored in a buffer. As they are programmed, they are stored at
the “top” of a rules list. If three rules have been created, the list would be configured as
follows:
Third Rule
Second Rule
First Rule
When data is scanned, the rules list is checked from top to bottom to determine if the criteria
matches (and therefore, if the actions should occur). Input is modified into the data format
specified by the first matching set of criteria it finds. Be sure that your most general rule is
the last one programmed.
9-5
Wasp WPS100 Product Reference Guide
For example, if the THIRD rule states:
When scanning a bar code of any length, send all data, then send the ENTER key.
And the SECOND rule states:
When scanning a Code 128 bar code of length 12, send the first four characters,
then send the ENTER key, then send all remaining data.
If a Code 128 bar code of length 12 were scanned, the THIRD rule would be in effect. The
SECOND rule would appear to not function.
Note also that ADF rules are actually created when you use the standard data editing
functions. Scan options are entered as ADF rules, and the hierarchy mentioned above also
applies to them. For the LS2108, this applies to prefix/suffix programming in the parameter
Scan Data Transmission Format.
These rules reside in the same “rule list” as ADF Rules, so the order of their creation is also
important.
Default Rules
Every unit has a default rule to send all scan data. Units with custom software may have
one or more default rules burned in. The rules hierarchy checks user programmable rules
first, then the default rules. Default rules can be disabled by entering the following general
rule in the user programmable buffer:
When receiving scan data, send all data.
Since this rule always applies, ADF will never go into the default rules.

Special Commands
Pause Duration
This parameter allows a pause to be inserted in the data transmission. Pauses are set by
scanning a two-digit number (i.e., two bar codes), and are measured in 0.1 second
intervals. For example, scanning bar codes “0” and “1” inserts a 0.1 second pause; “5” and
“0” gives you a 5 second delay. Numeric bar codes begin on page D-1 in Numeric Bar
Codes. If you make an error or wish to change your selection, scan Cancel bar code on
page 8-11. The default for Pause Duration is 1 second.

establishes the field of view.
AIM
The Automatic Identification Manufacturers Inc., a trade association.
ASCII
American Standard Code for Information Interchange. A 7 bit-plusparity code representing 128 letters, numerals, punctuation marks,
and control characters. It is a standard data transmission code in the
U.S.
Autodiscrimination
The ability of an interface controller to determine the code type of a
scanned bar code. After this determination is made, the information
content is decoded.
Bar
The dark element in a printed bar code symbol.
Bar Code Density
The number of characters represented per unit of measurement
(e.g., characters per inch).
Bar Height
The dimension of a bar measured perpendicular to the bar width.
Bar Width
Thickness of a bar measured from the edge closest to the symbol start
character to the trailing edge of the same bar.
Baud Rate
A measure of the data flow or number of signaling events occurring
per second. When one bit is the standard "event," this is a measure of
bits per second (bps). For example, a baud rate of 50 means
transmission of 50 bits of data per second.
Bit
Binary digit. One bit is the basic unit of binary information. Generally,
eight consecutive bits compose one byte of data. The pattern of 0 and
1 values within the byte determines its meaning.
Glossary-1
Wasp WPS100 Product Reference Guide
Byte
On an addressable boundary, eight adjacent binary digits (0 and 1)

value. Bits are numbered from the right, 0 through 7, with bit 0 the loworder bit. One byte in memory is used to store one ASCII character.
CDRH
Center for Devices and Radiological Health. A federal agency
responsible for regulating laser product safety. This agency specifies
various laser operation classes based on power output during
operation.
CDRH Class 1
This is the lowest power CDRH laser classification. This class is
considered intrinsically safe, even if all laser output were directed into
the eye's pupil. There are no special operating procedures for this
class.
CDRH Class 2
No additional software mechanisms are needed to conform to this
limit. Laser operation in this class poses no danger for unintentional
direct human exposure.
Character
A pattern of bars and spaces which either directly represents data or
indicates a control function, such as a number, letter, punctuation
mark, or communications control contained in a message.
Character Set
Those characters available for encoding in a particular bar code
symbology.
Check Digit
A digit used to verify a correct symbol decode. The scanner inserts the
decoded data into an arithmetic formula and checks that the resulting
number matches the encoded check digit. Check digits are required
for UPC but are optional for other symbologies. Using check digits
decreases the chance of substitution errors when a symbol is
decoded.
Codabar
A discrete self-checking code with a character set consisting of digits
0 to 9 and six additional characters: ( - $ : / , +).
Code 128
A high density symbology which allows the controller to encode all 128
ASCII characters without adding extra symbol elements.
Code 3 of 9 (Code
39)
A versatile and widely used alphanumeric bar code symbology with a
set of 43 character types, including all uppercase letters, numerals
from 0 to 9, and 7 special characters (- . / + % $ and space). The code
name is derived from the fact that 3 of 9 elements representing a
character are wide, while the remaining 6 are narrow.
Code 93
An industrial symbology compatible with Code 39 but offering a full
character ASCII set and a higher coding density than Code 39.
Glossary-2
Glossary
Code Length
Number of data characters in a bar code between the start and stop
characters, not including those characters.
Continuous Code
A bar code or symbol in which all spaces within the symbol are parts
of characters. There are no intercharacter gaps in a continuous code.
The absence of gaps allows for greater information density.
Dead Zone
An area within a scanner's field of view, in which specular reflection
may prevent a successful decode.
Decode
To recognize a bar code symbology (e.g., UPC/EAN) and then
analyze the content of the specific bar code scanned.
Decode Algorithm
A decoding scheme that converts pulse widths into data
representation of the letters or numbers encoded within a bar code
symbol.
Depth of Field
The range between minimum and maximum distances at which a
scanner can read a symbol with a certain minimum element width.
Discrete Code
A bar code or symbol in which the spaces between characters
(intercharacter gaps) are not part of the code.
Discrete 2 of 5
A binary bar code symbology representing each character by a group
of five bars, two of which are wide. The location of wide bars in the
group determines which character is encoded; spaces are
insignificant. Only numeric characters (0 to 9) and START/STOP
characters may be encoded.
EAN
European Article Number. This European/International version of the
UPC provides its own coding format and symbology standards.
Element dimensions are specified metrically. EAN is used primarily in
retail.
Element
Generic term for a bar or space.
Encoded Area
Total linear dimension occupied by all characters of a code pattern,
including start/stop characters and data.
Host Computer
A computer that serves other terminals in a network, providing such
services as computation, database access, supervisory programs,
and network control.
IEC
International Electrotechnical Commission. This international agency
regulates laser safety by specifying various laser operation classes
based on power output during operation.
Glossary-3
Wasp WPS100 Product Reference Guide
IEC (825) Class 1
This is the lowest power IEC laser classification. Conformity is
ensured through a software restriction of 120 seconds of laser
operation within any 1000 second window and an automatic laser
shutdown if the scanner's oscillating mirror fails.
Intercharacter Gap
The space between two adjacent bar code characters in a discrete
code.
Interleaved Bar
Code
A bar code in which characters are paired together, using bars to
represent the first character and the intervening spaces to represent
the second.
Interleaved 2 of 5
A binary bar code symbology representing character pairs in groups
of five bars and five interleaved spaces. Interleaving provides for
greater information density. The location of wide elements (bar/
spaces) within each group determines which characters are encoded.
This continuous code type uses no intercharacter spaces. Only
numeric (0 to 9) and START/STOP characters may be encoded.
LASER - Light
Amplification by
Stimulated
Emission of
Radiation
The laser is an intense light source. Light from a laser is all the same
frequency, unlike the output of an incandescent bulb. Laser light is
typically coherent and has a high energy density.
Laser Diode
A gallium-arsenide semiconductor type of laser connected to a power
source to generate a laser beam. This laser type is a compact source
of coherent light.
LED Indicator
A semiconductor diode (LED - Light Emitting Diode) used as an
indicator, often in digital displays. The semiconductor uses applied
voltage to produce light of a certain frequency determined by the
semiconductor's particular chemical composition.
MIL

Misread
(Misdecode)
A condition which occurs when the data output of a reader or interface
controller does not agree with the data encoded within a bar code
symbol.
Nominal
The exact (or ideal) intended value for a specified parameter.
Tolerances are specified as positive and negative deviations from this
value.
Nominal Size
Standard size for a bar code symbol. Most UPC/EAN codes are used
over a range of magnifications (e.g., from 0.80 to 2.00 of nominal).
Parameter
A variable that can have different values assigned to it.
Glossary-4
Glossary
Percent Decode
The average probability that a single scan of a bar code would result
in a successful decode. In a well-designed bar code scanning system,
that probability should approach near 100%.
Print Contrast
Signal (PCS)
Measurement of the contrast (brightness difference) between the bars
and spaces of a symbol. A minimum PCS value is needed for a bar
code symbol to be scannable. PCS = (RL - RD) / RL, where RL is the
reflectance factor of the background and RD the reflectance factor of
the dark bars.
Programming Mode The state in which a scanner is configured for parameter values. See
SCANNING MODE.
Quiet Zone
A clear space, containing no dark marks, which precedes the start
character of a bar code symbol and follows the stop character.

Scanner
An electronic device used to scan bar code symbols and produce a
digitized pattern that corresponds to the bars and spaces of the
symbol. Its three main components are:
1. Light source (laser or photoelectric cell) - illuminates a bar code.
2. Photodetector - registers the difference in reflected light (more light
reflected from spaces).
3. Signal conditioning circuit - transforms optical detector output into a
digitized bar pattern.
