RS507 Hands-Free Imager Product Reference Guide
Introduction
The RS507 Hands-Free Imager (also referred to as the Imager) is a wearable bar code scan solution for both 1D
and 2D bar code symbologies. The Imager is also compatible with a wide range of mobile computers
communicating over Bluetooth.
The Imager is designed for a wide range of applications from management of products in a warehouse, to
processing deliveries at a courier facility to processing prescription drugs at the pharmaceutical distribution center.
The Imager uses camera-based scanning technology, designed to offer flexible hands-free operation with
ergonomic comfort for right or left hand users.
The Imager can be operated in both manual and auto-triggering modes.
Auto-triggering is a patent-pending Interactive Sensing Technology combining motion and proximity sensing for
triggering the Imager.
The Imager is built to last and rated for indoor and outdoor daily use in scan-intensive environments. Built on a
magnesium chassis, the Imager offers the durability associated with the most rugged mobile computers.

Chapter 4 RS507 Update and Configuration
Introduction
This chapter covers the following topics:
• Configuring the Imager
• Imager Motion and Proximity Configuration
• Debugging logger
• Firmware upgrade
Configuring the Imager
Introduction
The Imager is a modular product used in several hardware configurations. Such configurations may include corded
or cordless connection to a terminal / mobile computer with manual or automatic triggering.
The Imager is provided with a default software configuration set in the factory. This software configuration can be
optimized by the customer to meet their specific operational requirements. Therefore, before using the Imager, it is
essential that the Imager be properly configured to harness its extensive capabilities and gain maximum efficiency.
There are several ways to configure the Imager. The best way is to set the parameters for each application allowing
the required degrees of freedom. In some cases it is recommended to allow the user to select between the various
operational modes or use cases, each with its own set of parameters.
Motorola mobile computers using the EMDK may utilize the SCAN and/or RSM APIs to configure the operation of
the Imager. Motorola terminals that cannot use the EMDK, may configure some operations of the Imager by
scanning special configuration bar codes (see Miscellaneous Imager Options on page 5-1) as done with many of
Motorola bar code scanners.
A selection of most configured Imager parameters can be set with the Remote Scanner Management Sample
(RSMSample) application installed on all Motorola mobile computers supporting the Imager. Some of the Imager
parameters can also be set by the Control Panel application.
4-2
RS507 Hands-Free Imager Product Reference Guide
Once connected to a mobile computer, the application running on the mobile computer overrides the Imager
parameters previously set.
Control Panel Application
The Control Panel (CTLpanel) application can be used for configuring the Imager by changing its values. The
Control Panel application also enables one to retrieve and display the current setting of each value.
The Control Panel application together with the RSMsample application enable the user to configure the RS507.
Users with Mobile computer that do not have the Control Panel application installed can download the application
(CtlPanelWM.exe) and related documentation from the Support Central site at:
http://www.motorola.com/enterprisemobility/contactsupport.
The following example describes how to read and configure new values of the Imager attributes.
To set new attribute values:
1.
When using the WT4090, from the App Launcher screen, open the Utilities folder and start the Control Panel
application. When using a mobile computer with Windows Mobile, open the Application folder and start the
CtlPanelWM application.

RSMSample Application
The Remote Scanner Management Sample (RSMSample) application is used for configuring the Imager by
changing its attribute values. The RSMSample application also enables one to retrieve and display the current
setting of each attribute. Users with mobile computer that do not have the RSMSample application installed can
download the application and related documentation from the Support Central site at:
http://www.motorola.com/enterprisemobility/contactsupport.
NOTE
When the Imager is connected to a mobile computer, configuration by scanning bar codes is disabled. In
such case, the Imager configuration is performed by the application (e.g RSMSamplen) running on the
mobile computer. The new configuration overrides the previous configuration. The new configuration is
saved in the Imager memory after disconnecting the Imager from the mobile computer or terminating the
application.

Imager Motion and Proximity Configuration
The Imager proximity and motion feature enables auto-triggering of the Imager upon motion and/or proximity to an
object.
Motion and proximity detection can be enabled or disabled by the mobile computer application such as the Remote
Scanner Management (RSMSample) application of the mobile computer (see “RSMSample Application” on
page 4-3) or by scanning configuration bar codes (see Miscellaneous Imager Options on page 5-1).
NOTE
Once configured, the motion and/or proximity attributes are retained in the Imager memory following warm
or cold boot.
Operation Modes
The Imager can be configured to a single or continuous scan operation. In most use cases, a single scan mode is
the preferred operation. However, when scanning packages off a moving conveyer belt, it is sometimes
recommended to use the continuous scan mode (also referred to as 'Proximity Continuous' mode). Continuous
operation automatically results from the combined settings of motion and proximity (enabling or disabling motion
and/or proximity. See Table 4-2). The Imager is provided with motion and proximity enabled by default.
To set new values to the motion and/or proximity attributes, refer to Imager Attributes on page 4-7.

Rapid Deployment Client
The Rapid Deployment (RD) Client application downloads an AirBeam package to a mobile computer connected to
an Imager from a Mobility Services Platform (MSP) Console’s FTP server.
The MSP Console is a web-based interface to the wireless infrastructure monitoring and management tools
provided by the MSP Lite or MSP Enterprise server.
AirBeam packages transferred to the FTP server, are downloaded to mobile computers connected to the wireless
network. The location of AirBeam packages are encoded in deployment bar codes. When an Imager captures a
deployment bar code, the AirBeam package(s) is downloaded from the FTP server to the Imager via the mobile
computer. A single deployment bar code can be captured by many Imagers.
NOTE
For detailed information about the MSP Console, MSP Lite/MSP Enterprise servers and creating
deployment bar codes, refer to the MSP User Guide.
The AirBeam package can be downloaded from the Support Central web site (Service Information on page xv).
The package includes:
• Mobile computer's RS507 enhancement .APF file
• Compatible RS507 Firmware .APF file.
The .APF file is used for management and distribution of the AirBeam package when the file is transferred from the
MSP to the Imager connected to the mobile computer over the Bluetooth.
NOTE
Make sure that the enhancement APF file is deployed on the mobile computer before you start the
deployment.
To download the AirBeam package from the remote MSP server:

Chapter 5 Miscellaneous Imager Options
Introduction
The Imager is intended to operate hand in hand with the mobile computer to which it is connected.
The mobile computer automatically loads configuration data whenever connected to an Imager (corded or
cordless). This operation does not require scanning configuration bar codes. Using configuration bar codes is only
available for a cordless Imager when decontrolled from the mobile computer.
It is recommended to use configuration bar codes only for setting parameters that cannot be configured by the
other mobile computer application.
NOTE
Imager parameters set by scanning configuration bar codes, persist in the Imagers memory.
The Imager ships with the settings shown in Table 5-1 on page 5-2 (also see Appendix A, Standard Default
Parameters for host device and miscellaneous defaults). If the default values suit the requirements, programming
is not necessary.
NOTE
Most computer monitors allow scanning the bar codes directly on the screen (when using the imaging
engine). 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.
To return all features to default values, scan the Set Default Parameter on page 5-4. Throughout the programming
bar code menus, asterisks indicate (*) default values.

In most cases, scanning one bar code sets the parameter value. For example, to set the beeper tone to high, scan
the High Frequency (beeper tone) bar code listed under Beeper Tone on page 5-6. The Imager issues a fast
warble beep and the LED turns green, signifying a successful parameter entry.
Other parameters, such as Serial Response Time-Out or Data Transmission Formats, require scanning several
bar codes. See these parameter descriptions for this procedure.
Errors While Scanning
Unless otherwise specified, to correct an error during a scanning sequence, just re-scan the correct parameter.
User Preferences/Miscellaneous Options Parameter Defaults
Table 5-1 lists defaults for user preferences parameters.
Scan the appropriate bar codes in this guide. These new values replace the standard default values in memory. To
recall the default parameter values, scan the Set Default Parameter on page 5-4.

Imager Activity Modes
The Imager is capable of four modes of activity:
• Busy (Run) Mode – The Imager is scanning or transferring data using Bluetooth.
• Standby Mode – The Imager enters Standby mode (Low Power Mode) when it is idle for more than one
second. The Imager wakes-up and returns to busy (run) mode upon at least one of the following events:
• Scan trigger
• Motion activity
• Bluetooth activity
• Press of the Restore key
• Real time clock (a system inside the Imager)
• Deep Sleep (Critical Off) Mode – The deep sleep mode is only applicable when the Imager is connected to
a mobile computer in cordless mode. When the battery power of the Imager is below 3V, the Imager turns off
and enters Standby mode. To recover from Deep Sleep mode, replace the battery with a charged battery
(See “Remove the Battery” on page 6.)
• OFF Mode – The Imager is not connected to power source.

FN1 Substitution Values
Key Category Parameter # 67h
Decimal Value Parameter # 6Dh
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, 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.
Set FN1 Substitution Value
2.
Locate the keystroke desired for FN1 Substitution in the ASCII Character Set table for the current host
interface. Enter the 4-digit ASCII Value by scanning each digit in Appendix D, Numeric Bar Codes.
To correct an error or change the selection, scan Cancel.
To enable FN1 substitution for USB HID keyboard, scan the Enable FN1 Substitution bar code on page 5-16.

Chapter 6 Symbologies
Introduction
This chapter describes symbology features and provides programming bar codes for selecting these features.
Before programming, follow the instructions in Chapter 1, Getting Started.
NOTE
When the Imager is connected to a mobile computer, configuration by scanning bar codes is disabled. In
such case, programming the Imager is performed by an application running on the mobile computer.
When the Imager is connected to a mobile computer, the configuration application running on the mobile
computer may override the parameters previously entered by scanning. Once configured, the new
parameters are saved in the Imager memory after disconnecting the Imager or terminating the application.
To set feature values, scan a single bar code or a short bar code sequence. The settings are stored in non-volatile
memory and are preserved even when the Imager powers down.
Select a host type after the power-up beeps sound. This is only necessary upon the first power-up when connected
to a new host.
To return all features to default values, scan the default bar code (see Set Default Parameter on page 5-4).
Throughout the programming bar code menus, asterisks (*) indicate default values.
* Indicates Default
*Enable UPC-A
(01h)
Feature/Option

programming via SSI command
Scanning Sequence Examples
In most cases, scanning one bar code sets the parameter value. For example, to transmit bar code data without the
UPC-A check digit, simply scan the Do Not Transmit UPC-A Check Digit bar code under Transmit UPC-A Check
Digit on page 6-14. The Imager issues a fast warble beep and the LEDs turn green, signifying a successful
parameter entry.
6-2
RS507 Hands-Free Imager Product Reference Guide
Other parameters, such as Set Length(s) for D 2 of 5 require scanning several bar codes. See the individual
parameter, such as Set Length(s) for D 2 of 5, for this procedure.
Errors While Scanning
Unless otherwise specified, to correct an error during a scanning sequence, just re-scan the correct parameter.
Symbology Parameter Defaults
Table 6-1 lists the defaults for all symbology parameters. There are two ways to change the default values:
• Scan the appropriate bar codes in this guide. These new values replace the standard default values in
memory. To recall the default parameter values, scan the Set Default Parameter on page 5-4.
• Download data through the device’s serial port using SSI. Hexadecimal parameter numbers appear in this
chapter below the parameter title, and options appear in parenthesis beneath the accompanying bar codes.
Refer to the Simple Serial Interface (SSI) Programmer’s Guide for detailed instructions for changing
parameters using this method.

Decode UPC/EAN/JAN Supplementals
Parameter # 10h
Supplementals are bar codes appended according to specific format conventions (e.g., UPC A+2, UPC E+2, EAN
13+2). The following options are available:
• If you select Ignore UPC/EAN with Supplementals, and the digital scanner is presented with a
UPC/EAN plus supplemental symbol, the scanner decodes UPC/EAN and ignores the supplemental
characters.
• If you select Decode UPC/EAN with Supplementals, the digital scanner only decodes UPC/EAN symbols
with supplemental characters, and ignores symbols without supplementals.
• If you select Autodiscriminate UPC/EAN Supplementals, the digital scanner decodes UPC/EAN symbols
with supplemental characters immediately. If the symbol does not have a supplemental, the digital scanner
must decode the bar code the number of times set via UPC/EAN/JAN Supplemental Redundancy on page
6-13 before transmitting its data to confirm that there is no supplemental.
• If you select one of the following Supplemental Mode options, the digital scanner immediately transmits
EAN-13 bar codes starting with that prefix that have supplemental characters. If the symbol does not have a
supplemental, the digital scanner must decode the bar code the number of times set via UPC/EAN/JAN
Supplemental Redundancy on page 6-13 before transmitting its data to confirm that there is no supplemental.
The digital scanner transmits UPC/EAN bar codes that do not have that prefix immediately.
• Enable 378/379 Supplemental Mode
• Enable 978/979 Supplemental Mode
NOTE
If you select 978/979 Supplemental Mode and are scanning Bookland EAN bar codes, see

The digital scanner offers four levels of decode security for delta bar codes, which include the Code 128 family,

inverse relationship between security and digital scanner aggressiveness, so choose only that level of security
necessary for any given application.
• Security Level 0: This setting allows the digital scanner 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 digital scanner. If you need this
level of security, try to improve the quality of the bar codes.

code-printing technologies, this gap can grow larger than the maximum size allowed, preventing the digital scanner
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 scanner 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 Macro PDF sequence without interruption. If, when
scanning a mixed sequence, the digital scanner emits two long low beeps (Low/Low) this indicates an
inconsistent file ID or inconsistent symbology error.
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.
Flush Macro PDF Buffer
Abort Macro PDF Entry
This clears all currently-stored Macro PDF data in the buffer without transmission and aborts from Macro PDF
mode.

T
TCP/IP. (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) A communications protocol used to internetwork dissimilar
systems. This standard is the protocol of the Internet and has become the global standard for communications. TCP
provides transport functions, which ensures that the total amount of bytes sent is received correctly at the other end.
UDP is an alternate transport that does not guarantee delivery. It is widely used for real-time voice and video
transmissions where erroneous packets are not retransmitted. IP provides the routing mechanism. TCP/IP is a routable
protocol, which means that all messages contain not only the address of the destination station, but the address of a
destination network. This allows TCP/IP messages to be sent to multiple networks within an organization or around the
world, hence its use in the worldwide Internet. Every client and server in a TCP/IP network requires an IP address, which
is either permanently assigned or dynamically assigned at startup.
Telnet. A terminal emulation protocol commonly used on the Internet and TCP/IP-based networks. It allows a user at a
terminal or computer to log onto a remote device and run a program.
Terminal Emulation. A “terminal emulation” emulates a character-based mainframe session on a remote non-mainframe

Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol. See TCP/IP.
Trivial File Transfer Protocol. See TFTP.
TSR. See Terminate and Stay Resident.
Glossary - 10 RS507 Hands-Free Imager Product Reference Guide
U
UDP. User Datagram Protocol. A protocol within the IP protocol suite that is used in place of TCP when a reliable delivery
is not required. For example, UDP is used for real-time audio and video traffic where lost packets are simply ignored,
because there is no time to retransmit. If UDP is used and a reliable delivery is required, packet sequence checking and
error notification must be written into the applications.
UPC. Universal Product Code. A relatively complex numeric symbology. Each character consists of two bars and two
spaces, each of which is any of four widths. The standard symbology for retail food packages in the United States.
V
Visible Laser Diode (VLD). A solid state device which produces visible laser light.
