4 Quick Start

Quick Start

This section’s instructions are based on the assumption that your new system is pre-configured and requires only accessory installation (e.g. antenna, external keyboard and/or barcode scanner) and a power source.

Use this guide as you would any other source book -- reading portions to learn about the VX5, and then referring to it when you need more information about a particular subject. This guide takes you through installation and operation of the LXE VX5.

In general, the sequence of events is:

1.

2.

3.

4.

Install Vehicle Mounting Bracket (and keyboard mounting bracket) on vehicle.

Secure VX5 in Mounting Bracket Assembly.

Connect vehicle power source to VX5 power cable.

Connect power cable to the VX5. The power cable can also be connected to a UPS battery pack, which is then connected to the VX5.

Connect accessories to VX5, e.g. scanner, antenna, keyboard.

Secure all cables to the VX5 with the Strain Relief Cable Clamps.

5.

6.

7.

Turn the VX5 on.

The VX5 and its keyboard should be mounted in an area in the vehicle where it:

Does not obstruct the vehicle driver’s vision or safe vehicle operation.

Can be easily accessed by anyone seated in the driver’s seat.

Figure 8 The 95-key QWERTY Keyboard

Key Maps

The 95-key keyboard supports all 104 keyboard functions (101 keyboard standard plus Windows keys) and includes an integrated pointing device and left and right mouse buttons. However, because the keyboard only has 95 keys, all functions are not visible (or printed on the keyboard).

Therefore the VX5 keyboard supports what is called hidden keys -- keys that are accessible but not visible on the keyboard.

As with a standard keyboard, many keys are found in the Alphanumeric section as well as on the

Numeric keypad (i.e. the 1 key is found on the numeric keypad and above the alpha characters on standard keyboards). However these keys send distinctly different scan codes when the keys are pressed.

The hidden keys supported by the VX5 are listed in Appendix A, “Key Maps”.

NumLock and the VX5

For the 95-key keyboard, the NumLock key and the numeric keys are backlit

green

when

NumLock is off. When NumLock is on, the backlight for the NumLock key and the numeric keys is

amber

.

Please refer to the “VX5 Reference Guide” for more information on NumLock.

CapsLock, Scroll Lock and the VX5

For the 95-key keyboard, the CapsLock key is backlit

green

when CapsLock is off. When

CapsLock is on, the backlight for the CapsLock key is

amber

.

The Scroll Lock key is backlit

green

when Scroll Lock is off. When Scroll Lock is on, the backlight for the Scroll Lock key is

amber

.

The default values for CapsLock and Scroll Lock are Off.

Key Maps

The 60-key keyboard supports all 101 keyboard functions. However, because the keyboard only has 60 keys, all functions are not visible (or printed on the keyboard). Therefore the VX5 keyboard supports what is called hidden keys -- keys that are accessible but not visible on the keyboard.

On standard keyboards many keys are found in the Alphanumeric section as well as on the

Numeric keypad (i.e. the 1 key is found on the numeric keypad and above the alpha characters on standard keyboards). However these keys send distinctly different scan codes when the keys are pressed. The default codes for the VX5 number keys correspond to the numeric keypad on standard keyboards. In order to duplicate the codes sent when the alphanumeric key is pressed, the hidden keystroke must be used.

The hidden keys supported by the VX5 are listed in Appendix A, “Key Maps”.

Unused Key Functions

There are several key functions on the 60-key keyboard that are not used on the VX5. These include:

<2nd> <F3> – The Resume/Suspend function is not used as Microsoft Windows controls all power management modes.

<2nd> <F4> and <2nd> <F5> – The Display Brightness functions are not used as the display brightness is adjusted by the buttons on the VX5 control panel.

<2nd> <F6> and <2nd> <F7> – The Contrast functions are not used as the contrast is not adjustable on the TFT display on the VX5.

<2nd> <F8> and <2nd> <F9> – The Volume control keys are not used as volume is adjusted via the Microsoft Windows Volume icon in the System Tray.

<2nd> <F10> – Please see “Keyboard Backlight” later in this section for details on toggling the keyboard backlight.

NumLock and the VX5

The 60-key keyboard does not have a NumLock indicator or key. NumLock can be toggled On or Off using the <2 nd

> <SHIFT> <F10> keypress sequence.

Please refer to the “VX5 Reference Guide” for more information on NumLock.

Keyboard Backlight

The LXE keyboard keys are backlit with LEDs. The backlight is manually controlled using the

<2 nd

> + <CTRL> + <F10> keypress sequence.

Keyboard LEDs

The VX5 keyboard has two (2) LED indicators.

Control Keys

The VMT keyboard has several control keys. Because of the construction of the VX5 and the

Microsoft Windows operating system, many of the Control Keys are not used on the VX5.

nd

functions of the <F4> and <F5>keys are not used as the display brightness is adjusted via the buttons on the control panel.

The 2 nd

functions of the <F6>, and <F7> keys are not used as the VX5 has TFT LCD screen with no provision for contrast adjustments.

VX5 is controlled with the Sound icon in the Microsoft Windows System Tray.

The <F10> key is used to toggle the backlight as part of the keypress sequence <2 nd

PS/2 Keyboard/Mouse

A standard PS/2 keyboard and mouse can be attached to the VX5 using the appropriate dongle cable. The dongle cable attaches to the VX5 and provides two PS/2 connectors, one labeled

“Keyboard” and one labeled “Mouse”. Please refer to documentation provided with the PS/2 keyboard and mouse for more information on their operation.

Virtual Keyboard

The optional My-T-Soft

®

software provides a virtual keyboard on the touchscreen. To start the virtual keyboard, click on the My-T-Soft icon on the desktop or select

Start | Programs | My-T-

Soft | My-T-Soft.

The virtual keyboard provides several configuration options, including:

Keyboard size

QWERTY vs. ABCD

Standard 101 key format vs. Windows 104 key format

For more information on configuring the virtual keyboard, click on

Start | Programs | My-T-Soft

| My-T-Soft Setup.

Figure 16 Virtual Keyboard, Typical Configuration

Virtual keyboards display the actual character the keypress outputs. For example, pressing the

<Shift> key on the virtual keyboard toggles the characters displayed on the keys between upper and lower case.

Note: When the virtual keyboard is displayed, the physical keyboard is still active, if attached.

Therefore it is possible to input data from both keyboards.

VX5 User’s Guide E-EQ-VX5OGWW-F-ARC

Power Supply 19

Power Supply

Vehicle power input for the VX5 is 12V to 80V DC and is accepted without the need to perform any manual adjustments within the VX5. See the section titled “Installation”, sub-section titled

“Vehicle 12-80V DC Direct Connection.” An optional Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) battery pack is available for the vehicle power supply connection.

If 12V to 80V DC power is not available – for example, in an office environment – an optional external Input Power Supply can be used to convert AC wall power to an appropriate DC level.

See the section titled “Installation”, sub-section titled “External Power Supply.”

Power input is fused for protection and the fuse is externally accessible. See section titled

“Installation”, sub-section titled “Fuse Replacement for the VX5.”

Uninterruptible Power Supply Battery Pack

An optional Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) battery pack is designed to provide power to the

VX5 for short periods of time when vehicle power is unavailable (such as when vehicle batteries are swapped). Fully charged, the UPS battery powers the VX5 for a minimum of 15 minutes at

25º C (77º F) ambient temperature.

The Power Status LED on the VX5 indicates the UPS battery status:

Green

– Running on 12V – 80V power input

Solid Yellow

– Running on UPS battery, battery is not low on power

Flashing Yellow

– Running on UPS battery, battery is critically low.

Backup Battery

The internal 190 mAh Lithium backup (coin cell) battery provides power to maintain the real time clock when the VX5 is not powered from an external source. The backup battery requires no user intervention. Replacement must be performed by LXE.

Caution

!

Danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced.

Replace only with the same type or equivalent type recommended by the manufacturer.

Dispose of used batteries according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Display and Touchscreen

The VX5 Display is a thin-film transistor display capable of supporting SVGA graphics modes.

Display size is 800 x 600 pixels. The display covering is designed to resist stains. The touch screen allows signature capture and touch input.

The touch screen is a Resistive Panel with a scratch resistant finish that can detect touches by a stylus, and translate them into computer commands. In effect, it simulates a computer mouse.

Only Delrin or plastic styluses should be used.

Note: Always use the point of the stylus for tapping or making strokes on the display. Never use an actual pen, pencil or sharp object to write on the touch screen.

An extra or replacement stylus may be ordered from LXE. See the “Accessories” section for the stylus part number.

Adjusting Screen Display

The color TFT display is an active source of light. The VX5 display brightness can be adjusted via the brightness control buttons located on the VX5 control panel. Pressing the brightness up button increases the display brightness incrementally until maximum brightness is achieved.

Likewise, pressing the brightness down button decreases the display brightness until minimum brightness is achieved. Because there are 64 incremental levels of brightness intensity, a single press of either brightness adjustment button may not be noticeable. The up or down button can be pressed and held to accelerate brightness adjustment.

nd

functions <F4>, <F5>, <F6>, and <F7> keys on the 60-key VMT keyboard have no function on the VX5.

There are no provisions for adjusting the contrast of the display. The display remains on unless

Microsoft Windows power management is configured to turn the display off after a certain period of inactivity.

Cleaning the Display

Keep fingers and rough or sharp objects away from the display. If the glass becomes soiled or smudged, clean only with a standard household cleaner such as Windex® without vinegar or use

Isopropyl Alcohol. Do not use paper towels or harsh-chemical-based cleaning fluids since they may result in damage to the glass surface. Use a clean, damp, lint-free cloth. Do not scrub optical surfaces. If possible, clean only those areas which are soiled. Lint/particulates can be removed with clean, filtered canned air.

Disabling the Touchscreen

The touchscreen can be disabled, if desired. For more information, please refer to “Disabling the

Touchscreen” in the “VX5 Reference Guide”.

Touchscreen Protective Film

78 Adjust Speaker Volume

Adjust Speaker Volume

Microsoft Windows provides volume adjustment by clicking the “volume” icon in the system tray.

The volume control adjusts the built in speaker’s volume.

Note: The <F8> and <F9> keys on the 60-key VMT keyboard have no function as Windows controls the sound volume.

Microsoft Windows Event Sounds

The VX5 includes a customized sound scheme. The customized WAV files are preferable to the standard Microsoft Windows sounds when using the internal speakers.

When a VX5 is delivered with Windows preinstalled, the customized sound scheme is the default for Windows events. If a VX5 is ordered with no operating system installed, the customized sounds can be found on the VX5 CD. For more information on changing the sounds used in

Windows, please refer to the Windows Help feature. Please refer to the “VX5 Reference Guide” for more details on the VX5 CD.

Do not pour, spray, or spill any liquid on the scanner. The Barcode Scanner contains the circuitry, scanning motor and laser. Handle with appropriate care.

Enter Data

You can enter data into the VX5 through several different methods:

The tethered scanner connected to the COM1 serial port provides barcode data entry

The serial ports are used to input/output data

The keyboards provide manual entry

The touchscreen also provides manual entry

VX5 User’s Guide E-EQ-VX5OGWW-F-ARC

Enter Data 81

Keyboard Entry

Refer to “Appendix A Key Maps” for specific keypresses.

The keyboard is used to manually input data that is not collected otherwise. Almost any function that a full sized computer keyboard can provide is duplicated on the LXE VMT keyboard but it may take a few more keystrokes to accomplish a keyed task.

Almost every key has two or three different functions. The primary alpha or numeric character is printed on the key.

For example, when the <2 the <2 nd nd

> key is selected pressing the desired second-function key produces

> character i.e. <2 nd

> + F1 toggles the CAPS Lock function. The specific <2 is printed above the corresponding key. nd

> character

Please refer to “Appendix A Key Maps” for instruction on the specific keypresses to access all

PC-compatible keyboard functions.

Touchscreen Entry

Note: This section is directed to the VX5 user. The assumption is that the unit has been configured and the touch panel calibrated by the System Administrator prior to releasing the VX5 for use.

Note: Always use the point of the stylus for tapping or making strokes on the display. Never use an actual pen, pencil or sharp object to write on the touch screen.

The touchscreen input performs the same function as the mouse that is used to point to and click elements on a desk top computer. The stylus is used in the same manner as a mouse – single tap or double tap to select menu options, drag the stylus across text to select, hold the stylus down to activate slider bars, etcetera. The right mouse click function can be configured as follows:

Press and hold <Ctrl> key then touch the touchscreen (this is the only option available with the 60-key keyboard).

Press and release <Ctrl> key then touch touchscreen..

When using a stylus, hold the stylus as if it were a pen or pencil. Touch an element on the screen with the tip of the stylus then remove the stylus from the screen. The touch screen responds to an actuation force (touch) of up to 4 oz. of pressure.

The touch screen can be used in conjunction with the keyboard and an input/output device connected to one of the VX5’s serial ports.

Touch the stylus to the field of the data entry form to receive the next data feed.

The cursor begins to flash in the field.

The unit is ready to accept data from either the keyboard or a device connected to a serial port.

E-EQ-VX5OGWW-F-ARC VX5 User’s Guide

82 Enter Data

Scanner Entry

The following section is directed toward a generic tethered scanner connected to the COM1 serial port on the VX5.

Aiming the Barcode Scanner

Aim the scanner

away

from you, direct it at the barcode and press the trigger to scan.

The Scan On LED (or equivalent) turns red to indicate the scanner is on.

Adjust the aim so that the thin, red laser beam covers the entire length of the barcode.

Some scanners use a laser aiming beam which then spreads into a wide beam when the scanner’s

Aiming Beam Timer expires. Place the aiming beam in the center of the barcode and hold the scanner steady until the beam spreads and the barcode is decoded. Beeps may be heard as the barcode is decoded. Refer to the barcode scanner user’s guide for information on the Aiming

Beam Timer and beep sequences, and the TE reference guide for host generated beep sequences.

The scan beam must cross every bar and space on the barcode.

Correct Scan Incorrect Scan

Figure 80 Scan Beam

Incorrect Scan

Distance from Label

Large barcodes can be scanned at the maximum distance. Hold the scanner closer to small barcodes (or with bars that are very close together).

Note: Do not position the scanner exactly perpendicular to the barcode being scanned. In this position, light can bounce back into the scanner’s exit window, and possibly prevent a successful decode.

Successful Scan

When the scan is successful, the scanner’s good scan indicator illuminates, the scan on indicator is off, and the currently running application may produce a distinctive audible tone.

Unsuccessful Scan

When the scan is unsuccessful, the scan on indicator remains illuminated and the currently running application may produce distinctive audible tones. Check the following:

Is the scanner programmed for the barcode being read?

Check the barcode for marks or physical damage e.g. ripped label, missing section, etc.

Try scanning test symbols of the same code type at different distances and angles.
