may vary from those illustrated, but the steps to connect the reader
remain the same.
Programming
The reader is factory-configured with a set of default features standard. After scanning the interface barcode from the Interfaces section, you can select other options and customize your
reader through use of the instructions and programming barcodes available in the corresponding
features section for your interface and also the Data Editing and Symbologies chapters of this
manual.
Product Reference Guide
7
Getting Started
Using the Programming Barcodes
This manual contains feature descriptions and barcodes which allow you to reconfigure your
reader. Some programming barcode labels, like the Resetting the Product Configuration to
Defaults on page 9, require only the scan of that single label to enact the change. Most of the
programming labels in this manual, however, require the reader to be placed in Programming
Mode prior to scanning them. Scan an ENTER/EXIT barcode once to enterProgramming
Mode. Once the reader is in Programming Mode, you can scan a number of parameter settings
before scanning the ENTER/EXIT barcode a second time, which will then accept your changes,
exit Programming Mode and return the reader to normal operation.
There are some exceptions to the typical programming sequence
described above. Please read the description and setting instructions carefully when configuring each given programmable feature.
NOTE
Select the Interface Type
Upon completing the physical connection between the reader and its host, proceed directly to
Interfaces on page 11 for information and programming for the interface type the reader is
connected to (for example: RS-232, Keyboard Wedge, USB, etc.) and scan the appropriate barcode in that section to select your system’s correct interface type.
Configure Interface Settings
If after scanning the interface barcode from the Interfaces section, your installation requires
you to select options to further customize your reader, turn to the appropriate section for your
interface type as listed below:
•
RS-232 ONLY Interface, starting on page 45
•
Keyboard Interface, starting on page 71
•
USB-OEM Interface, starting on page 85
•
IBM 46XX Interface, starting on page 89
•
Wand Emulation Interface, starting on page 95
Configure Other Features
If your installation requires different programming than the standard factory default settings,
the following sections of this manual allow configuration of non-interface-specific settings you
might require:
General Features — General Features includes programming for scanning, beeper and LED
indicators and other such universal settings.
Symbologies — Includes options concerning the barcode label types (symbologies). These settings allow you to enable/disable symbologies, set label lengths, require check digit, etc.

Resetting the Product Configuration to Defaults
If you aren't sure what programming options are in your imager, or you've changed some
options and want to restore the Custom Default Configuration that may have been saved
in the imager, scan the Restore Custom Default Configuration barcode below. This
will restore the custom configuration for the currently active interface.
Custom defaults are based on the interface type. Configure the
imager for the correct interface before scanning this label.
NOTE
Restore Custom Default Configuration
If you aren't sure what programming options are in your imager, or you've changed some
options and want to restore the Factory Configuration, you have two options. You can
scan the Restore USA Factory Configuration bar code or the Restore EU Factory
Configuration bar code below. Both labels restore the imager configuration to the factory settings including the interface type. The USA label restores Label IDs to those historically used in the USA. The EU label restores Label IDs to those historically used in
Europe. The Label ID sets for USA and EU are shown in the Label ID section of this

Scanning Features
Scanning Features
Scan Mode
Selects the scan operating mode for the reader. Selections are:
Trigger Single —
When the trigger is pulled, scanning is activated until one of the fol-
lowing occurs:
- Scanning Active Time has elapsed
- a label has been read
- the trigger is released
This mode is associated with typical handheld reader operation: when the trigger is
pulled, scanning starts and the product scans until the trigger is released, or a label is read,
or the maximum Scanning Active Time has elapsed.
Trigger Hold Multiple —
When the trigger is pulled, scanning starts and the product
scans until the trigger is released or Scanning Active Time has elapsed. Reading a label does
not disable scanning. Double Read Timeout prevents undesired multiple reads of the same
label while in this mode.
Trigger Pulse Multiple —
When the trigger is pulled, continuous scanning is activated
until Scanning Active Time has elapsed or the trigger has been released and pulled again.
Double Read Timeout1 prevents undesired multiple reads of the same label while in this
mode.
The reader flashes1 on and off regardless of the trigger status. Flash rate is
controlled by Flash On Time and Flash Off Time. When Flash is ON the reader reads continuously, when Flash is OFF scanning is deactivated.
Flashing —
Always On —
No trigger pull is required to read a barcode. Scanning is continually on.
If the trigger is pulled, the reader acts as if it is in Trigger Single Mode. Double Read
Timeout1 prevents undesired multiple reads of the same label while in this mode.
Stand Mode —
No trigger pull is required to read a barcode. Scanning is turned on automatically when an item is placed in reader’s field of view. If the trigger is pulled, the
reader acts as if it in single read mode. Double Read Timeout1 prevents undesired multiple
reads of the same label while in this mode.
Trigger Object Sense —
This mode is similar to Stand Mode, except that a trigger pull
is required to activate the decoder.

Intercharacter Delay
This parameter specifies the intercharacter delay between the end of one character
and the beginning of the next. The delay can be set within a range of zero (0) to 990
milliseconds in 10ms increments. A setting of zero specifies no delay.
To set the delay:
1. Determine the desired setting in milliseconds.
2. Divide the desired setting by 10 (setting is in 10ms increments). Pad the result
with leading zeroes to yield two digits. For example: 0 = 00, 5 = 05, 20 = 20, etc.
3. Scan the ENTER/EXIT PROGRAMMING MODE barcode to enter Programming Mode.
4. Scan the barcode: SELECT INTERCHARACTER DELAY SETTING.
5. Scan the appropriate two digits from the keypad in Appendix E, Keypad, that represent the duration which was determined in the steps above. You will hear a twobeep indication after the last character.

Wedge Quiet Interval
This option specifies the amount of time to look for keyboard activity before the reader breaks the keyboard connection in order to transmit data to host. The selectable
range for this feature is from 0 to 990ms in 10ms increments.
This feature applies ONLY to the Keyboard Wedge interface.
NOTE
Follow these instructions to set this feature:
1. Determine the desired setting in milliseconds.
2. Divide the desired setting by 10 (setting is in 10ms increments). Pad the result with leading zeroes to yield two digits. For example: 0 = 00, 5 = 05, 20 = 20, etc.
3. Scan the ENTER/EXIT PROGRAMMING MODE bar code to enter Programming
Mode.
4. Scan the bar code: SELECT WEDGE QUIET INTERVAL SETTING.
5. Scan the appropriate two digits from the keypad in Appendix E, Keypad, that represent
the duration which was determined in the steps above. You will hear a two-beep indication after the last character.
If you make a mistake before the last character, scan the CANCEL bar
code to abort and not save the entry string. You can then start again at
the beginning.

Data Editing
Data Editing Overview
It is not recommended to use these features with IBM interfaces.
CAUTION
When a barcode is scanned, additional information can be sent to the host computer
along with the barcode data. This combination of barcode data and supplementary userdefined data is called a “message string.” The features in this chapter can be used to build
specific user-defined data into a message string.
There are several types of selectable data characters that can be sent before and after
scanned data. You can specify if they should be sent with all symbologies, or only with
specific symbologies. Figure 3 shows the available elements you can add to a message
string:

Data Editing
Please Keep In Mind...
•
Modifying a message string is not a mandatory requirement. Data editing is
sophisticated feature allowing highly customizable output for advanced users. Factory default settings for data editing is typically set to NONE.
•
A prefix or suffix may be applied (reference the Symbologies chapter for these settings) across all symbologies (set via the Global features in this chapter).
•
You can add any character from the ASCII Chart (from 00-FF) on the inside back
cover of this manual as a prefix, suffix or Label ID.
•
Enter prefixes and suffixes in the order in which you want them to appear on the
output.
Global Prefix/Suffix
Up to 20 ASCII characters may be added as a prefix (in a position before the barcode
data) and/or as a suffix (in a position following the barcode data) as indicated in Figure 4.

Example: Setting a Prefix
In this example, we’ll set a prefix for all symbologies.
1. Determine which ASCII character(s) are to be added to scanned barcode data. In
this example, we’ll add a dollar sign (‘$’) as a prefix.
2. Scan the ENTER/EXIT barcode.
3. Scan the SET GLOBAL PREFIX barcode.
4. Reference the ASCII Chart on the inside back cover of this manual, to find the hex
value assigned to the desired character. The corresponding hex number for the ‘$’
character is 24. To enter this selection code, scan the ‘2’ and ‘4’ barcodes from
Appendix E, Keypad.
If you make a mistake before the last character, scan the CANCEL barcode to
abort and not save the entry string. You can then start again at the beginning.

Label ID
A Label ID is a customizable code of up to three ASCII characters (each can be one of
hex 0x01-0xFF), used to identify a barcode (symbology) type. It can be appended previous to or following the transmitted barcode data depending upon how this option is enabled. This feature provides options for configuring custom Label IDs as a pre-loaded set
(see Label ID: Pre-loaded Sets on page 107) or individually per symbology (see Label
ID: Set Individually Per Symbology on page 110). If you wish to program the reader to
always include an industry standard label identifier for ALL symbology types, see the previous feature Global AIM ID on page 104.
Label ID: Pre-loaded Sets
The reader supports two pre-loaded sets of Label IDs. Table 17 shows the USA set and
the EU set.
When changing from one Label ID set to another, all other imager configuration settings, including the host interface type, will be erased and set to the
factory defaults. Any custom configuration or custom defaults will be lost.

Label ID: Set Individually Per Symbology
To configure a Label ID individually for a single symbology:
1. Scan the ENTER/EXIT barcode.
2. Select Label ID position as either BEFORE (Enable as Prefix) or AFTER (Enable
as suffix) by scanning the appropriate barcode in the section Label ID Control on
page 112. Reference Figure 6 for Label ID positioning options if multiple identification features are enabled.
3. Scan a barcode to select the symbology for which you wish to configure a custom
Label ID from the section Label ID Symbology Selection, starting on page 113.
4. Determine the desired character(s) (you may choose up to three) which will represent the Label ID for the selected symbology.
5. Turn to the ASCII Chart on the inside back cover of this manual and find the
equivalent hex digits associated with your choice of Label ID. For example, if you
wish to select an equal sign (=) as a Label ID, the chart indicates its associated hex
characters as 3D. Turn to Keypad, starting on page 361 and scan the barcodes
representing the hex characters determined. For the example given, the characters
‘3’ and ‘D’ would be scanned. More examples of Label ID settings are provided in
Table 18.
If you make a mistake before the last character, scan the CANCEL barcode to
abort and not save the entry string. You can then start again at the beginning.
NOTE
6. Scan the ENTER/EXIT barcode to exit Label ID entry.
7. Scan the ENTER/EXIT barcode once again to exit Programming Mode.
This completes the steps to configure a Label ID for a given symbology.

Case Conversion
Case Conversion
This feature allows conversion of the case of all alphabetic characters to upper or lower
case.
Case conversion affects ONLY scanned barcode data, and does not
affect Label ID, Prefix, Suffix, or other appended data.
NOTE
ENTER/EXIT PROGRAMMING MODE
DEFAULT
Case Conversion = Disable (no case conversion)
Case Conversion = Convert to upper case
Case Conversion = Convert to lower case
Character Conversion
Character conversion is an eight byte configuration item. The eight bytes are 4 character
pairs represented in hexadecimal ASCII values. The first character in the pair is the character that will be converted. The second character in the pair is the character to convert
to. If the character to convert in a pair is FF, then no conversion is done.
For example, if you have the character conversion configuration item set to the following:
41423132FFFFFFFF
The first pair is 4142 or AB (41 hex is an ASCII capital A, 42 hex is an ASCII capital B)
and the second pair is 3132 or 12 (31 hex is an ASCII 1, 32 is an ASCII 2). The other
two pairs are FFFF and FFFF.
With the label, AB12BA21, it would look as follows after the character

Data Editing
conversion: BB22BB22.
The A characters were converted to B characters and the 1 characters were converted to
2 characters. Nothing is done with the last two character pairs, since they are all FF.
To set Character Conversion:
1. Scan the ENTER/EXIT barcode.
2. Scan the “Configure Character Conversion” barcode.
3. Determine the desired string. Sixteen positions must be determined as in the above
example. Next, turn to the ASCII Chart on the inside back cover of this manual
and find the equivalent hex digits needed to fulfill the string.
4. Turn to Appendix E, Keypad and scan the barcodes representing the hex characters determined in the previous step.
5. Scan the ENTER/EXIT barcode to exit Programming Mode.
If less than the expected string of 16 characters are selected, scan
the ENTER/EXIT barcode twice to accept the selections and exit Programming Mode.

UPC/EAN Global Settings
UPC/EAN Global Settings
This section provides configuration settings for UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN 13 and EAN 8
symbologies, and affects all of these unless otherwise marked for each feature description.
UPC/EAN Decoding Level
Decoding Levels are used to configure a barcode symbology decoder to be very aggressive
to very conservative depending on a particular customer’s needs.
•
Choosing Level 1 results in a very conservative decoder at the expense of not being
able to read poorly printed or damaged labels.
•
Choosing Level 5 results in a very aggressive decoder. This aggressive behavior
allows decoding of poorly printed and damaged labels at the expense of increasing
the likelihood of decoding errors.
•
Choosing Level 3, which is the default setting, allows the majority of product
labels to be decoded.
There are many factors that determine when to change the decoding level for a particular
symbology. These factors include spots, voids, non-uniform bar/space widths, damaged
labels, etc. that may be experienced in some barcode labels. If there are many hard to read
or damaged labels that cannot be decoded using a conservative setting, increase the decoding level to be more aggressive. If the majority of labels are very good quality labels,
or there is a need to decrease the possibility of a decoder error, lower the decoding level
to a more conservative level.

Code 39 Decoding Level
Decoding Levels are used to configure a barcode symbology decoder to be very aggressive
to very conservative depending on a particular customer’s needs.
•
Choosing Level 1 results in a very conservative decoder at the expense of not being
able to read poorly printed or damaged labels.
•
Choosing Level 5 results in a very aggressive decoder. This aggressive behavior
allows decoding of poorly printed and damaged labels at the expense of increasing
the likelihood of decoding errors.
•
Choosing Level 3, which is the default setting, allows the majority of product
labels to be decoded.
There are many factors that determine when to change the decoding level for a particular
symbology. These factors include spots, voids, non-uniform bar/space widths, damaged
labels, etc. that may be experienced in some barcode labels. If there are many hard to read
or damaged labels that cannot be decoded using a conservative setting, increase the decoding level to be more aggressive. If the majority of labels are very good quality labels,
or there is a need to decrease the possibility of a decoder error, lower the decoding level
to a more conservative level.
This configuration item applies to Code 39 and Code 32.

2 of 5 Decoding Level
This configuration item applies to Interleaved 2 of 5, Datalogic 2 of 5 and
Standard 2 of 5.
NOTE
Decoding Levels are used to configure a barcode symbology decoder to be very aggressive
to very conservative depending on a particular customer’s needs.
•
Choosing Level 1 results in a very conservative decoder at the expense of not being
able to read poorly printed or damaged labels.
•
Choosing Level 5 results in a very aggressive decoder. This aggressive behavior
allows decoding of poorly printed and damaged labels at the expense of increasing
the likelihood of decoding errors.
•
Choosing Level 3, which is the default setting, allows the majority of product
labels to be decoded.
There are many factors that determine when to change the decoding level for a particular
symbology. These factors include spots, voids, non-uniform bar/space widths, damaged
labels, etc. that may be experienced in some barcode labels. If there are many hard to read
or damaged labels that cannot be decoded using a conservative setting, increase the decoding level to be more aggressive. If the majority of labels are very good quality labels,
or there is a need to decrease the possibility of a decoder error, lower the decoding level
to a more conservative level.

Codabar Set Length 2
This feature specifies one of the barcode lengths for Codabar Length Control. Length 2
is the maximum label length if in Variable Length Mode, or the second fixed length if
in Fixed Length Mode. The length includes the barcode’s start, stop, check and data
characters. The length must include at least one data character.
The length can be set from 3 to 50 characters. A setting of 0 specifies to ignore this length
(only one fixed length).
Follow these instructions to set this feature:
1. Determine the desired character length (from 3 to 50 — or 0 to ignore this
length). Pad the number with leading zeroes to yield two digits. For example: 0 =
00, 5 = 05, 20 = 20, etc.
2. Scan the ENTER/EXIT PROGRAMMING MODE barcode to enter Programming Mode.
3. Scan the barcode: SELECT CODABAR LENGTH 2 SETTING.
4. Scan the appropriate two digits from the keypad in Appendix E, Keypad, that represent the length setting which was determined in the steps above. You will hear a
two-beep indication after the last character.
If you make a mistake before the last character, scan the CANCEL barcode to

Code 11 Decoding Level
Decoding Levels are used to configure a barcode symbology decoder to be very aggressive
to very conservative depending on a particular customer’s needs.
•
Choosing Level 1 results in a very conservative decoder at the expense of not being
able to read poorly printed or damaged labels.
•
Choosing Level 5 results in a very aggressive decoder. This aggressive behavior
allows decoding of poorly printed and damaged labels at the expense of increasing
the likelihood of decoding errors.
•
Choosing Level 3, which is the default setting, allows the majority of product
labels to be decoded.
There are many factors that determine when to change the decoding level for a particular
symbology. These factors include spots, voids, non-uniform bar/space widths, damaged
labels, etc. that may be experienced in some barcode labels. If there are many hard to read
or damaged labels that cannot be decoded using a conservative setting, increase the decoding level to be more aggressive. If the majority of labels are very good quality labels,
or there is a need to decrease the possibility of a decoder error, lower the decoding level
to a more conservative level.

Decoding Levels are used to configure a barcode symbology decoder to be very aggressive
to very conservative depending on a particular customer’s needs.

Choosing Level 5 results in a very aggressive decoder. This aggressive behavior allows
decoding of poorly printed and damaged labels at the expense of increasing the likelihood
of decoding errors.
•
Choosing Level 3, which is the default setting, allows the majority of product labels to be
decoded.
There are many factors that determine when to change the decoding level for a particular
symbology. These factors include spots, voids, non-uniform bar/space widths, damaged
labels, etc. that may be experienced in some barcode labels. If there are many hard to read
or damaged labels that cannot be decoded using a conservative setting, increase the decoding level to be more aggressive. If the majority of labels are very good quality labels,
or there is a need to decrease the possibility of a decoder error, lower the decoding level
to a more conservative level.

Codablock F Set Length 1
This feature specifies one of the barcode lengths for Codablock F Length Control.
Length 1 is the minimum label length if in Variable Length Mode, or the first fixed
length if in Fixed Length Mode. Length includes the barcode’s data characters only.
The length can be set from 003 to 255 characters.
Follow these instructions to set this feature:
1. Determine the desired character length (from 3 to 255). Pad the number with leading
zeroes to yield three digits. For example: 3 = 003, 5 = 005, 20 = 020, etc.
2. Scan the ENTER/EXIT PROGRAMMING MODE barcode to enter Programming
Mode.
3. Scan the barcode: SELECT CODABLOCK F LENGTH 1 SETTING.
4. Scan the appropriate three digits from the keypad in the Keypad Appendix, that represent
the length setting which was determined in the steps above. You will hear a two-beep indication after the last character.
If you make a mistake before the last character, scan the CANCEL barcode to
abort and not save the entry string. You can then start again at the beginning.
NOTE
5. Scan the ENTER/EXIT PROGRAMMING MODE barcode to exit Programming
Mode.
This completes the procedure. See the table below for some examples of how to set this
feature.

Codablock F Set Length 2
This feature specifies one of the barcode lengths for Codablock F Length Control.
Length 2 is the maximum label length if in Variable Length Mode, or the second fixed
length if in Fixed Length Mode. Length includes the barcode’s check, data, and fullASCII shift characters. The length does not include start/stop characters.
The length can be set from 3 to 255 characters. A setting of 0 specifies to ignore this
length (only one fixed length).
Follow these instructions to set this feature:
1. Determine the desired character length (from 3 to 255 — or 0 to ignore this length). Pad
the number with leading zeroes to yield three digits. For example: 0 = 000, 5 = 005, 20 =
020, etc.
2. Scan the ENTER/EXIT PROGRAMMING MODE barcode to enter Programming
Mode.
3. Scan the barcode: SELECT CODABLOCK F LENGTH 2 SETTING.
4. Scan the appropriate three digits from the keypad in the Keypad Appendix that represent
the length setting which was determined in the steps above. You will hear a two-beep indication after the last character.
If you make a mistake, before the last character scan the CANCEL barcode to
abort and not save the entry string. You can then start again at the beginning.

Symbologies
Code 4 and Code 5 Common Configuration Items
The following options apply to both Code 4 and Code 5 symbologies.
Code 4 and 5 Decoding Level
Decoding Levels are used to configure a barcode symbology decoder to be very aggressive
to very conservative depending on a particular customer’s needs.
•
Choosing Level 1 results in a very conservative decoder at the expense of not being
able to read poorly printed or damaged labels.
•
Choosing Level 5 results in a very aggressive decoder. This aggressive behavior
allows decoding of poorly printed and damaged labels at the expense of increasing
the likelihood of decoding errors.
•
Choosing Level 3, which is the default setting, allows the majority of product
labels to be decoded.
There are many factors that determine when to change the decoding level for a particular
symbology. These factors include spots, voids, non-uniform bar/space widths, damaged
labels, etc. that may be experienced in some barcode labels. If there are many hard to read
or damaged labels that cannot be decoded using a conservative setting, increase the decoding level to be more aggressive. If the majority of labels are very good quality labels,
or there is a need to decrease the possibility of a decoder error, lower the decoding level
to a more conservative level.
This configuration item applies to Code 4 and Code 5.

LED and Beeper Indications
The reader’s beeper sounds and its LED illuminates to indicate various functions or
errors on the reader. An optional “Green Spot” also performs useful functions. The
tables below list these indications. One exception to the behaviors listed in the tables is
that the reader’s functions are programmable, and may or may not be turned on. For
example, certain indications, such as the power-up beep can be disabled using programming barcode labels.
