A) place the desired barcode on
the scanline.
B) wait until the LEARN LED stays
steady on (indicating the reader
has detected the barcode).
C) repeat, if needed, the above
two steps to program up to 10
different barcodes (the LEARN
LED returns to the blinking state
for the next code). If more than
one barcode is detected in the
scan line, the Multi Label mode
is enabled (refer to the “2K/4K
Family Software Configuration
Parameter Guide” Help file).
3. Exit the process by pressing the X-PRESS™ push button once. The scanner will restart
at the end of the process, and then the detected barcodes are automatically configured in
scanner memory.
NOTE: If the barcode cannot be read because of low contrast or excessive
ambient light, you can perform the AutoSetup function to optimize the optical
parameters. Then you can perform AutoLearn to recognize the barcode
symbology.
NOTE: On exit from Autolearn, the following parameters are forced: Code
Combination = Single Label, Reading Mode = Linear. If necessary, these
parameters can be changed through Genius™.
* In case of Programming Barcodes, refer to the “Setup Procedure Using Programming Barcodes” document in
the product CD.

The scanner will restart at the end of the process, and then the optimized reading
parameters for that barcode are automatically configured in scanner memory.
NOTE: If your application has been configured using X-PRESS™, go to
STEP 5.
Reset Scanner to Factory Default (Optional)
If it ever becomes necessary to reset the scanner to the factory default values, you can
perform this by holding the X-PRESS™ push-button pressed while powering up the scanner
and waiting for all LEDs to blink simultaneously three times before releasing the push button.
This procedure takes ≈ 5-6 seconds for Serial Models, ≈ 10 seconds for Ethernet Models, ≈
20 seconds for Profinet-IO models. At the end of the procedure the Configuration and
Environmental parameters are reset. If connected through a CBX500 with display module,
the message "Default Set" is shown on the display.

STEP 4 – INSTALLING GENIUS™ CONFIGURATION PROGRAM
Genius™ is a Datalogic scanner configuration tool providing several important advantages:
 Wizard approach for new users;
 Multi-language version;
 Defined configuration directly stored in the reader;
 Communication protocol independent from the physical interface allowing to consider the
reader as a remote object to be configured and monitored.
To install Genius™, turn on the PC that will be used for the configuration, running
Windows 98, 2000/NT, XP, Vista or 7, then insert the Genius™ CD-ROM, wait for the CD
to autorun and follow the installation procedure.
This configuration procedure assumes scanner connection to a CBX100/500. Genius™,
running on a laptop computer, is connected to the scanner auxiliary port through the
CBX100/500 9-pin connector. To communicate with the scanner, Genius™ performs an auto
baudrate detection starting from its default parameters which are 115200, 8, N, 1. These
parameters can also be set in the Genius™ Tools>Options>Communications window.
Wizard for Quick Reader Setup
After installing the Genius™ software program the following window appears asking the user
to choose the desired configuration level.

This LED indicates a NO READ result.
* In On-Line mode the TRIGGER LED corresponds to the active reading phase signaled by the Presence Sensor.
In Automatic and Continuous modes the TRIGGER LED is always on indicating that the reader is ready to read a
code.
** When connected to a Fieldbus network through the CBX500, the COM LED is always active, even in the
absence of data transmission, because of polling activity on the Fieldbus network.
During the reader startup (reset or restart phase), all the LEDs blink for one second.
PWR (blue)
ETH (yellow)
This LED indicates that the reader is connected to the power
supply. (This LED is located next to the cable on Serial models).
This LED indicates connection to the on-board Ethernet or
Profinet-IO network.
2.2 ID-NET™
The ID-NET™ is a built-in high-speed interface dedicated for highspeed scanner interconnection. The ID-NET™ is in addition to the
Main and Auxiliary serial interfaces.
The following network configurations are available:

ID-NET™ M/S Synchronized: Single station – multiple scanners
ID-NET™ interface allows local connection
of multiple scanners reading different sides
of the same target. All scanners share a
single
presence
sensor
and
activate/deactivate simultaneously.
At the end of each reading phase a single
data message is transmitted to the host.
Thanks to ID-NET™, data communication
among scanners is highly efficient so that
an immediate result will be available.


DS2100N/DS2400N REFERENCE MANUAL
ID-NET™ M/S Multidata: Multiple stations – single scanner
ID-NET™ interface allows connection of scanners reading objects placed on independent
conveyors. All scanners are typically located far away from each other and they use a
dedicated presence sensor.
At the end of each reading phase, each scanner transmits its own data message to the host.
Thanks to ID-NET™, data collection among readers is accomplished at a high speed without
the need of external multiplexing device. This leads to an overall cost reduction and to a
simple system wiring.

How To Setup/Configure the Scanner Network
A complete ID-NET™ scanner network can be rapidly setup, as follows:
Mounting & Connection
1. Mechanically mount/install all the readers (refer to par. 3.2 and 3.4).
2. Wire ID-NET™ (refer to par. 4.3).
3. Connect the planned Master scanner to a PC by means of the Genius™ configuration
software.
4. Power up the entire system.
Configuration
1. Launch Genius™.
2. From the Genius™ Device Menu select “Local Device Network Settings” and program the
Role of the Master scanner (Synchronized or Multidata).
This procedure requires the Network Baud Rate be the same for all Slaves and Master,
(500 kbs is the default value). It can be changed after network setup using Genius™
through the Master scanner. See also the alternative procedure in the note below.
3. At the prompt to "Send updated Network configuration to the Local Device" (Master)
choose "Yes".
4. Then run the NET-AUTOSET procedure from the Icon in the Devices Area. Genius™
sets all slave scanners according to the Master Role (Synchronized or Multidata), and
assigns each a random address. If necessary, this address can be changed through the
Network Wizard.
5. Configure the System parameters via Genius™.
6. If using the CBX connection box equipped with a BM100 Backup module, perform
System Backup at the Master. See par. 2.4 of this manual or the BM100 or BM150
manuals for details.
The scanner network is ready.
NOTE: If necessary, the ID-NET™ baudrate can be set individually on each
Slave scanner to match the Master. Connect each Slave to Genius™ and set
the Reading System Layout > Network Baudrate parameter. Then follow the
procedure above.
NOTE: An alternative method of programming scanner address and role
assignment can be accomplished by using the "Connectivity Programming
Barcodes" (refer to the "Setup Procedure Using Programming Barcodes"
document on the product CD).

AutoLearn Function
Once entered, the reader starts a procedure to automatically detect and recognize barcodes
(by type and length), which are presented to it1. The laser turns on and the LEARN LED
blinks to indicate the ongoing process.
The procedure is as follows:
-
place the desired barcode on the scanline.
-
wait until the LEARN LED stays steady on (indicating the reader has detected the
barcode).
-
repeat, if needed, the above two steps to program up to 10 different barcodes (the LEARN
LED returns to the blinking state for the next code). If more than one barcode is detected
in the scan line, the Multi Label mode is enabled (refer to the “2K/4K Family Software
Configuration Parameter Guide” Help file).
-
exit the process by pressing the X-PRESS™ push button once.
The scanner will restart at the end of the process, and then the detected barcodes are
automatically configured in scanner memory.
AutoSetup Function
Once entered, if a barcode label is positioned in front of the scanline, the scanner
automatically performs the optimal setup of the reading parameters for that specific barcode.
The procedure is as follows:
-
place the desired barcode on the scanline.
-
enter the AutoSetup function (the laser turns on and the SETUP LED blinks to indicate
the ongoing process).
-
wait until the SETUP LED stays steady on (indicating the reader has detected the
barcode).
This procedure ends either when the barcode is successfully decoded or after a timeout of
about 7 (seven) seconds.
The scanner will restart at the end of the process, and then the optimized reading
parameters for that barcode are automatically configured in scanner memory.
NOTE: The AutoSetup function does not modify the programmed barcode
symbologies. If needed, the AutoLearn function can be performed after
Autosetup.

2.6 SUBZERO TEMPERATURE MODELS
The DS2400N Subzero scanner is an industrial scanner designed to operate in industrial
refrigerator/freezer cells or other stable subzero degree environments, which are below the
operating range of standard industrial scanners. It is not designed to move between subzero
and normal environments (rapid temperature changes).
The DS2400N Subzero has an intelligent microprocessor-driven and efficient internal heating
system which constantly monitors and automatically controls internal temperature. Only the
necessary temperature-sensitive components are heated, resulting in an efficient heating
system which has very low power consumption.
Upon power-up in a subzero environment, the scanner waits until these internal components
are heated to within their operating temperature range. Power-up at -35 °C can take about 20
minutes before the scanner is ready to read barcodes. During this time the laser and motor
remain off and the Ready LED blinks, indicating the warm-up phase. While in the warm-up
phase, scanner communication is operative and the device can be configured through
Genius™ or through Host Mode Programming.

To fix the scanner to the GFC-200, use the two M 4 x 6 mm screws supplied with the GFC
Kit. Refer to the following figure.
Figure 28 – Fixing DS2X00N Scanner to GFC-200
The GFC-200 85° contact reading mirror assures that the minimum skew angle is maintained
to avoid direct light reflection which can degrade reading performance.
When reading very reflective barcodes, it may be necessary to increase the skew angle (up
to 10° - 15°). In this case, the GFC-200 should be mounted with a corresponding inclination.

The internal optical path from the scanner reading window to the GFC-200 window is
51 mm.
The reading distance of the scanner with the GFC-200 is shifted by 51 mm towards the
scanner because of the internal optical path between the scanner and the GFC-200 output
window.
The reading performance also decreases in typical conditions by about 10% due to the
optical signal passing through the output window of the GFC-200 and the reflection on the
mirror surface.
The combination of these effects produces the reading diagram represented below:

3.3.4
Mounting an OM2000N Accessory Oscillating Mirror
The OM2000N oscillating mirror is designed to generate homogeneous and adjustable raster
reading through deflection of the scanning laser beam.
The system consists of the oscillating mirror attached to the scanner and allows a surface
instead of a line to be observed; versatility and reading accuracy are therefore increased in
"Picket Fence" reading mode.
The electronic and electromechanical components controlling the mirror movement are
contained inside the rugged metal casing, which guarantees protection class IP65 when the
OM2000N is mounted correctly onto the scanner.
The OM2000N is directly powered from the scanner through a connector which is accessible
after removing the scanning window (see Figure 33). It therefore operates exclusively at low
power, between 10 and 30 VDC.
CAUTION: The OM2000N accessory is not compatible with and therefore
cannot be used on Subzero models.
The following figure gives the overall dimensions of the scanner + OM2000N and may be
used for its installation in the application.

The installation of the deflection mirror is very easy.
1) Clean the OM2000N mirror surface and output window (internally and externally) with a
clean soft cloth and alcohol before assembling it to the scanner.
CAUTION: All abrasive substances must be absolutely avoided as they
cause irreparable damage to the transparency of the glass.
2) Remove the scanning window from the
scanner (see Figure 32).
Figure 32 – Remove Scanning Window
3) Bring the OM2000N close to the scanner
and insert the cable into the power
connector of the scanner (see Figure
33).
NOTE: Make sure the cable
doesn't remain in the path of
the mirror movement.

4) Check that the seal is correctly
positioned and then after having aligned
the OM2000N onto the scanner, fix it
using the two screws (see Figure 34).
Figure 34 –Mount OM2000N
5) In the indicated space on the front side
of the OM2000N, apply the relative
replicate scanner serial number label
provided with the scanner itself (see

The reading distance of the scanner with the OM2000N is shifted by 10 mm towards the
scanner because of the internal optical path between the scanner and the OM2000N output
window. The reading performance also decreases in typical conditions by about 10% due to
the optical signal passing through the output window of the OM2000N and the reflection on
the mirror surface. The combination of these effects produces the reading diagram

The reading distance also depends on the amplitude of aperture used. In particular, wider
apertures require the scanner to be closer to the code in order to read at the extreme edges
of the sweep (see Figure 37 below).

3.4 POSITIONING
The scanner is able to decode moving barcode labels at a variety of angles, however
significant angular distortion may degrade reading performance.
When mounting the scanner take into consideration these three ideal label position angles: Skew
10° to 30°, Tilt 0° and Pitch 0°.
Follow the suggestions for the best orientation:
The Skew angle is represented by the value
S in Figure 38. Position the reader to assure
at least 10° for the Skew angle. This avoids
the direct reflection of the laser light emitted
by the scanner.
For the raster version, this angle refers to the
most inclined or external raster line, so that all
other raster lines assure more than 10°
Skew.
S
Figure 38 - Skew Angle
T
The Tilt angle is represented by the value T
in Figure 39. Position the reader in order to
minimize the Tilt angle.
By using the Reconstruction Reading Mode
software parameter, the tilt angle is less
critical and can be decoded even if the scan
line doesn’t cross the entire code.
See par. 6.1 or the Help On Line for details.

P
The Pitch angle is represented by the value
P in Figure 40. Position the reader in order
to minimize the Pitch angle.

4 ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION
Serial Interface models are equipped with a cable terminated by a 25-pin male D-sub
connector for connection to the power supply and input/output signals. For Ethernet models,
an accessory 17-pin to 25-pin cable is available for CBX connections.
We recommend making system connections through one of the CBX connection boxes since
they offer the advantages of easy connection, easy device replacement and filtered
reference signals.
NOTE: If you require direct wiring to the scanner, the details of the connector
pins and relative connections are indicated in Appendix A for Serial models or
in Appendix B for Built-in Ethernet models.
NOTE: Profinet-IO models do not connect to the CBX connection boxes. The
details of the connector pins and relative connections are indicated in
Appendix C.

ID-NET™ Network Termination
The network must be properly terminated in the first and last scanner of the network. This is
done by setting the ID-NET™ Termination Resistance Switch in the CBX100/500 to ON.
4.4 AUXILIARY RS232 INTERFACE
The auxiliary serial interface is used exclusively for RS232 point-to-point connections.
The parameters relative to the aux interface (baud rate, data bits, etc.) as well as particular
communication modes such as LOCAL ECHO can be defined using the Genius™ utility
program or Genius™ based Host Mode Programming installed from the CD-ROM.
The 9-pin female Auxiliary Interface connector inside the CBX is the preferred connector for
device configuration or communication monitoring.

Code Verifier
If the scanner is used as a Code Verifier, the verifier code can be configured in software
through the Genius™ configuration program. However it is also possible to use one of the
inputs to trigger when the scanner should store a code read as the verifier code.
The Code Verifier parameter must be enabled, and the configuration parameters to allow
correct Code Type reading must be saved to the scanner in order to read the verifier code.
When the selected input is activated, the next read code will be stored as the verifier code in
the scanner's non-volatile (Flash) memory.
For more details see the Verifier Parameters in the "2K/4K Family Software Configuration
Parameter Guide” Help file".
4.6 OUTPUTS
Two general purpose outputs are available.
CAUTION: For Ethernet models, when Outputs 1 and 2 are connected
through the CBX connection box, they become opto-isolated and polarity
sensitive and acquire the electrical characteristics listed below. To function
correctly, they require setting the Output Type configuration parameter to
NPN for the respective output.

5.4 ID-NET™ SYNCHRONIZED NETWORKS
The ID-NET™ connection is used to collect data from several scanners to build a multi-point
or a multi-sided reading system; there can be one master and up to 31 slaves connected
together.
The slave scanners are connected together using the ID-NET™ interface. Every slave
scanner must have a ID-NET™ address in the range 1-31.
The master scanner is also connected to the Host on the RS232/RS485 main serial
interface.
For a Master/Slave Synchronized layout the External Trigger signal is unique to the system;
there is a single reading phase and a single message from the master scanner to the Host
computer. It is not necessary to bring the External Trigger signal to all the scanners.
The main, auxiliary, and ID-NET™ interfaces are connected as shown in the figure below.

5.6 PASS-THROUGH
An alternative Pass-Through layout allows the more efficient ID-NET™ network to be used.
This layout is really an ID-NET Master/Slave Multidata layout which also allows each
scanner (Master and Slaves) to accept input on the Auxiliary interface, for example to
connect a device such as a hand-held reader for manual code reading capability.
Each scanner transmits its own messages plus any messages received by its Auxiliary
interface onto the ID-NET™ interface. The Master passes all messages to the Host.
When On-Line Operating mode is used, the scanner is activated by an External Trigger
(photoelectric sensor) when the object enters its reading zone.

READING FEATURES
6
6 READING FEATURES
6.1 ADVANCED CODE RECONSTRUCTION (ACR-LITE)
The traditional way of barcode reading could be called “Linear Reading”. In this case, the
laser beam crosses the barcode symbol from its beginning to its end as shown in the
following figure:
Laser Beam
Figure 80 – Linear Reading
In Advanced Code Reconstruction mode it is no longer necessary for the laser beam to cross
the label from the start to the end. With just a set of partial scans on the label (obtained using
the motion of the label itself), the scanner is able to “reconstruct” the barcode. A typical set of
partial scans is shown in the figure below:
Code Direction
Figure 81 – Partial Scans
None of the partial scans contains the whole label. The decoder aligns each partial scan
correctly and combines them in order to obtain the entire code.
The alignment is performed by calculating the time difference from one partial scan to
another using a reference code element.
ACR-Lite therefore has an intrinsic ability to increase the reading percentage of damaged
codes as in the examples below:

Important ACR-Lite Reading Conditions
 Do not use ACR-Lite for omni-directional reading stations.
 Code concatenation and ACR-Lite are not compatible and therefore cannot be enabled
simultaneously.
 Stacked codes and ACR-Lite are not compatible.
 Codes shorter than 4 digits, while readable linearly, cannot be reconstructed in ACR-Lite.
 Reconstruction reading mode is not compatible with scanner Raster models.
NOTE: To maximize scanner performance in Advanced Code
Reconstruction Reading applications:
 enable only the code symbologies that will actually be used in the
application and disable any code symbologies that will not be used in the
application
 reconstruct only one code label at a time
use conveyor speeds less than or equal to 1.0 m/s
6.1.2
Tilt Angle for Advanced Code Reconstruction
The most important parameter in Advanced Code Reconstruction is the value of the
maximum tilt angle (maximum) under which the code reconstruction process is still
possible.

6.2 LINEAR CODE READING
The number of scans performed on the code by the scanner and therefore the decoding
capability is influenced by the following parameters:




number of scans per second
code motion speed
label dimensions
scan direction with respect to code motion
At least 5 scans during the code passage should be allowed to ensure a successful read.
6.2.1
Step-Ladder Mode
If scanning is perpendicular to the code motion direction (Figure 85), the number of effective
scans performed by the reader is given by the following formula:
SN = [(LH/LS) * SS] – 2
Where:
SN
LH
LS
SS
=
=
=
=
number of effective scans
label height (in mm)
label movement speed in (mm/s)
number of scans per second
Figure 85 - "Step-Ladder" Scanning Mode
For example, the DS2400N (800 scans/sec.) for a 25 mm high code moving at 1250 mm/s
performs:
[(25/1250) * 800] - 2 = 14 effective scans.
83
DS2100N / DS2400N REFERENCE MANUAL

6.2.2
Picket-Fence Mode
If scanning is parallel to the code motion, (Figure 86), the number of effective scans is given
by the following formula:
SN = [((FW-LW)/LS) * SS] -2
Where:
SN
FW

=
=
number of effective scans
reading field width (in mm)
label width (in mm)

Figure 86 - "Picket-Fence" Scanning Mode
For example, for a 100 mm wide code moving in a point where the reading field is 200 mm
wide at a 2000 mm/s speed, the DS2400N (800 scans per sec.), performs:
[((200-100)/2000) * 800] - 2 = 38 effective scans

8.1 GENERAL GUIDELINES
When wiring the device, pay careful attention to the signal name (acronym) on the
CBX100/500 spring clamp connectors (chp. 4). If you are connecting directly to the scanner
25-pin connector pay attention to the pin number of the signals (Appendix A).
If you need information about a certain reader parameter you can refer to the Genius™
program help files.
Either connect the device and select the parameter you’re interested in by pressing the F1
key, or select Help/Parameters Help/2K_4K Software Configuration Parameters Guide
from the command menu.
If you’re unable to fix the problem and you’re going to contact your local Datalogic office or
Datalogic Partner or ARC, we suggest providing (if possible) the Device Configuration files
(*.ddc). Connect through Genius™ and click the Save icon from the toolbar. Also note the
exact Model, Serial Number and Order Number of the device.

GLOSSARY
ACR-Lite (Advanced Code Reconstruction)
This is a light version of the powerful Advanced Code Reconstruction technology applied to
high performance high precision scanners. ACR-Lite is effective in reading codes positioned
close-to-linear, small height codes, damaged codes, or poor print quality codes. See par. 6.1.
Aperture
Term used on the required CDRH warning labels to describe the laser exit window.
Barcode
A pattern of variable-width bars and spaces which represents numeric or alphanumeric data
in machine-readable form. The general format of a barcode symbol consists of a leading
margin, start character, data or message character, check character (if any), stop character,
and trailing margin. Within this framework, each recognizable symbology uses its own unique
format.
Barcode Label
A label that carries a barcode and can be affixed to an article.
Baud Rate
A unit used to measure communications speed or data transfer rate.
CDRH (Center for Devices and Radiological Health)
This organization (a service of the Food and Drug Administration) is responsible for the
safety regulations governing acceptable limitations on electronic radiation from laser devices.
Datalogic devices are in compliance with the CDRH regulations.
Code Positioning
Variation in code placement that affects the ability of a scanner to read a code. The terms
Pitch, Skew, and Tilt deal with the angular variations of code positioning in the X, Y and Z
axes. See pars. 3.2.1 and 3.3.4. Variations in code placement affect the pulse width and
therefore the decoding of the code. Pulse width is defined as a change from the leading edge
of a bar or space to the trailing edge of a bar or space over time. Pulse width is also referred
to as a transition. Tilt, pitch, and skew impact the pulse width of the code.
Decode
The process of translating a barcode into data characters using a specific set of rules for
each symbology.
Decoder
As part of a barcode reading system, the electronic package which receives the signals from
the scanner, performs the algorithm to interpret the signals into meaningful data and provides
the interface to other devices. The decoder is normally integrated into the scanner.
EAN
European Article Number System. The international standard barcode for retail food
packages.
FLASH
An on-board non-volatile memory chip.
112
Full Duplex
Simultaneous, two-way, independent transmission in both directions.
Half Duplex
Transmission in either direction, but not simultaneously.
Host
A computer that serves other terminals in a network, providing services such as network
control, database access, special programs, supervisory programs, or programming
languages.
Interface
A shared boundary defined by common physical interconnection characteristics, signal
characteristics and meanings of interchanged signals.
LED (Light Emitting Diode)
A low power electronic device that can serve as a visible or near infrared light source when
voltage is applied continuously or in pulses. It is commonly used as an indicator light and
uses less power than an incandescent light bulb but more than a Liquid Crystal Display
(LCD). LEDs have extremely long lifetimes when properly operated.
Multidrop Line
A single communications circuit that interconnects many stations, each of which contains
terminal devices. See RS485.
Parameter
A value that you specify to a program. Typically parameters are set to configure a device to
have particular operating characteristics.
Picket-Fence Orientation
When the barcode’s bars are positioned vertically on the product, causing them to appear as
a picket fence. The first bar will enter the scan window first. See par. 6.2.2.
Pitch
Rotation of a code pattern about the X-axis. The normal distance between center line or
adjacent characters. See pars. 3.2.1 and 3.3.4.
Position
The position of a scanner or light source in relation to the target of a receiving element.
Protocol
A formal set of conventions governing the formatting and relative timing of message
exchange between two communicating systems.
Raster
The process of projecting the laser beam at varied angles spaced evenly from each other.
Typically, the mirrored rotor surfaces are angled to create multiple scan lines instead of a
single beam.
Resolution
The narrowest element dimension, which can be distinguished by a particular reading device
or printed with a particular device or method.
113
RS232
Interface between data terminal equipment and data communication equipment employing
serial binary data interchange.
RS485
Interface that specifies the electrical characteristics of generators and receivers for use in
balanced digital multipoint systems such as on a Multidrop line.
Scanner
A device that examines a printed pattern (barcode) and either passes the uninterpreted data
to a decoder or decodes the data and passes it onto the Host system.
Serial Port
An I/O port used to connect a scanner to your computer, identifiable by a 9-pin or 25-pin
connector.
Signal
An impulse or fluctuating electrical quantity (i.e.: a voltage or current) the variations of which
represent changes in information.
Skew
Rotation about the Y-axis. Rotational deviation from correct horizontal and vertical
orientation; may apply to single character, line or entire encoded item. See pars. 3.2.1 and
3.3.4.
Step-Ladder Orientation
When the barcode’s bars are positioned horizontally on the product, causing them to appear
as a ladder. The ends of all bars will enter the scan window first. See par. 6.2.1.
Symbol
A combination of characters including start/stop and checksum characters, as required, that
form a complete scannable barcode.
Tilt
Rotation around the Z axis. Used to describe the position of the barcode with respect to the
laser scan line. See pars. 3.2.1 and 3.3.4.
Trigger Signal
A signal, typically provided by a photoelectric sensor or proximity switch, which informs the
scanner of the presence of an object within its reading zone.
UPC
Acronym for Universal Product Code. The standard barcode type for retail food packaging in
the United States.
Visible Laser Diode
A light source used in scanners to illuminate the barcode symbol. Generates visible red light
at wavelengths between 630 and 680 nm.
