for a class 2 product. They also comply with the U.S. 21 CFR 1040.10 regulations for
a class II laser product except for deviations pursuant to Laser Notice No. 50, dated
July 26, 2001.
Radiant Energy: The BCL 500i \ BCL 501i uses a low power visible laser diode. The
emitted wavelength is 655nm. The average laser power is less than 1mW in accordance with the definition of class 2 lasers.
Adjustments: Do not attempt any adjustments to or alterations of this product.
Do not remove the protective housing of the barcode reader. There are no user-serviceable parts inside.
The scanner window is the only aperture through which light may be observed on this
product. A failure of the scanner motor, while the laser diode continues to emit a laser
beam, may cause emission levels to exceed those for safe operation. The barcode
reader has safeguards to prevent this occurrence. If, however, a stationary beam is
emitted, the failing barcode reader should be disconnected from its power source immediately.
CAUTION: Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than
specified herein may result in hazardous light exposure.
The use of optical instruments or devices in combination with the device increases
the danger of eye damage!

Fast commissioning / operating principle
Below you will find a short description for the initial commissioning of the
BCL 500i \ BCL 501i. Detailed explanations for all listed points can be found throughout this
technical description.
3.1
Mounting the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i
The BCL 500i \ BCL 501i barcode readers can be mounted in two different ways:
• Using two M4x6 screws on the rear of the device or using four M4x6 screws on the
bottom of the device.
• Using a BT 56 mounting device on the two fastening grooves.
3.2
Device arrangement and selection of the mounting location
In order to select the right mounting location, several factors must be considered:
• Size, orientation, and position tolerance of the barcodes on the objects to be
scanned.
• The reading field of the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i in relation to the barcode module width.
• The resulting minimum and maximum reading distance from the respective reading
field (see chapter 5.5 "Reading field curves / optical data").
• The permissible line lengths between the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i and the host system
depending on which interface is used.
• The correct time for data output. The BCL 500i \ BCL 501i should be positioned in
such a way that, taking into consideration the time required for data processing and
the conveyor belt speed, there is sufficient time to e.g. initiate sorting operations on
the basis of the read data.
• The display and control panel should be very visible and accessible.
• For configuring and commissioning with the webConfig tool, the USB interface should
be easily accessible.
For specific information, please refer to chapter 4.4.
Notice!
The beam exits the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i as follows for the respective devices:
- line scanner parallel to the housing base
- oscillating mirror and deflection mirror perpendicular to the housing base
The black areas in figure 6.1 are the housing base. The best read results are obtained when:
• The BCL 500i \ BCL 501i is mounted in such a way that the scanning beam is incident on the barcode at an angle of inclination greater than ±10° … 15° to vertical.
• The reading distance lies in the middle area of the reading field.
• The barcode labels are of good print quality and have good contrast ratios.
• You do not use high-gloss labels.
• There is no direct sunlight.

Fast commissioning / operating principle
Voltage supply and switching inputs/outputs
The voltage supply (10 … 30VDC) is connected at the PWR M12 connector.
Available at both the PWR M12 connector as well as at the SW IN/OUT M12 socket are four
freely programmable switching inputs/outputs for custom adaptation to the respective
application. Detailed information on this topic can be found in chapter 7.2.1 and chapter
7.2.3 (for the BCL 500i) and in chapter 7.3.1 and chapter 7.3.3 (for the BCL 501i).
Stand-alone operation
During stand-alone operation of the BCL 500i, the host interface of the primary system is
connected to HOST/BUS IN. Please make certain that the correct interface is used on the
primary system. The standard setting of the BCL 500i for the host interface is RS 232.
Network operation in the Leuze multiNet plus
In Leuze multiNet plus network operation, the primary system (PC/PLC) is connected to the
host interface of the BCL 500i, the bus connection to the next participant, e.g. a BCL 501i,
occurs via BUS OUT.
If BUS OUT is not used for the connection to the next participant, the Leuze multiNet plus
network must be terminated with an M12 terminating resistor at the last participant (see
chapter 13.3 "Accessory terminating resistor").
3.4
Starting the device
ª Connect the supply voltage +10 … 30VDC (typ. +24VDC); the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i
starts up and the barcode reading window appears on the display:
31
By default, parameter enabling is deactivated and you cannot change any settings. If you wish to carry out the configuration via the display, you must activate parameter
enabling. Further information can be found in chapter
"Parameter enabling" on page 103
As a first step, you need to set the operating mode of the BCL 500i. The BCL 500i can be
operated as a stand-alone device, multiNet plus master, or multiNet plus slave.
You can make the necessary settings via the display or via the webConfig tool. Provided
here is only a brief description of the settings via the webConfig tool; detailed information

The BCL 501i always automatically starts as a slave participant in the multiNet plus. The
default address is 1.
The Leuze multiNet plus permits an address range from 0 to 31. Address 31 must not be
used for data communication. It may only be used temporarily for commissioning.
ª Set the Slave address parameter to a value > 0 and < 31. Start with address 01 for the
first slave and assign further addresses in contiguous ascending order.

The extensive options for device configuration via display or software enable adaptation to
a multitude of reading tasks. Due to the large reading distance combined with the great
depth of field and a very compact construction, the device is ideally suited for package and
pallet transportation systems. In general, the barcode readers of the BCL 500i series are
designed for the conveyor and storage technology market.
The interfaces (RS 232, RS 485 and RS 422) integrated in the various device models and
the fieldbus systems (PROFIBUS DP, ProfiNet and Ethernet) of the barcode readers of the
BCL 500i series offer optimum connection to the primary host system.

General information
The integrated fieldbus connectivity = i contained in the barcode readers of the BCL 500i
series facilitates the use of identification systems which function without connector unit or
gateways. The integrated fieldbus interface considerably simplifies handling. The Plug-andPlay concept enables easy networking and very simple commissioning: Directly connect the
respective fieldbus and all configuration is performed with no additional software.
For decoding barcodes, the barcode readers of the BCL 500i series make available the
proven CRT decoder with code fragment technology:
The proven code fragment technology (CRT) enables barcode readers of the BCL 500i
series to read barcodes with a small bar height, as well as barcodes with a damaged or
soiled print image.

BCL 500i \ BCL 501i
Leuze electronic
Device description
With the aid of the CRT decoder, barcodes can also be read without problem in other
demanding situations, such as with a large tilt angle (azimuth angle or even twist angle).
Figure 4.2:
Possible barcode orientation
The BCL 500i \ BCL 501i can be operated and configured using the integrated webConfig
tool via the USB service interface; alternatively, the barcode readers can be adjusted using
configuration commands via the host/service interface.
The BCL 500i \ BCL 501i needs a suitable activation to start a read process as soon as an
object is in the reading field. This opens a time window ("reading gate") in the
BCL 500i \ BCL 501i for the read process during which the barcode reader has time to
detect and decode a barcode.
Through the read operation, the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i collects additional useful pieces of
data for diagnosis which can also be transmitted to the host. The quality of the read operation can be inspected using the alignment mode which is integrated in the webConfig tool.
A multi-language display with buttons is used to operate the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i as well as
for visualisation purposes. Two LEDs provide additional optical information on the current
operating state of the device.
The four freely configurable switching inputs/outputs "SWIO 1 … SWIO 4" can be assigned
various functions and control e.g. activation of the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i or external devices,
such as a PLC.
System, warning and error messages provide assistance in set-up/troubleshooting during
commissioning and read operation.

Reading techniques
4.4.1
Line scanner (single line)
A line (scan line) scans the label. Due to the opt. opening angle, the reading field width is
dependent on the read distance. Through the movement of the object, the entire barcode is
automatically transported through the scan line.
The integrated code fragment technology permits twisting of the barcode (tilt angle) within
certain limits. These are dependent on the transport speed, the scanning rate of the scanner
and the barcode properties.
Areas of application of the line scanner
The line scanner is used:
TNT 35/7-24V
• when the bars of the barcode are printed in the conveying direction ('ladder arrangement').
• with barcodes having very short bar lengths.
• when the ladder code is turned out of the vertical position (tilt angle).
• when the scanning distance is large.
Figure 4.4:
Leuze electronic
Deflection principle for the line scanner
BCL 500i \ BCL 501i
23
Device description
4.4.2
Line scanner with oscillating mirror
The oscillating mirror deflects the scan line additionally to both sides across the scan direction at a randomly adjustable oscillation frequency. In this way, the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i can
also scan larger areas or spaces for barcodes. The reading field height (and the scan line
length useful for evaluation) depends on the reading distance due to the optical beam width
of the oscillating mirror.
Areas of application of the line scanner with oscillating mirror
For line scanners with oscillating mirror, oscillation frequency, start/stop position etc. are
adjustable. It is used:
• when the position of the label is not fixed, e.g. on pallets – various labels can, thus, be
detected at various positions.
• when the bars of the barcode are printed perpendicular to the conveying direction
('picket fence arrangement').
• when reading stationary objects.
• when the barcode is turned out of the horizontal position.
• when the scanning distance is large.
• when a large reading field (reading window) has to be covered.

Omnidirectional reading

Stand-alone connection
The barcode readers of the BCL 500i series can be operated as individual "stand alone"
devices. The BCL 500i features multiple M12 connectors / sockets for the electrical connection of the supply voltage, the interface and the switching inputs and outputs.

In order to read arbitrarily oriented barcodes on an object, at least 2 barcode readers are
necessary. If the barcode is not printed over-square, i.e. bar length > code length, barcode
readers with integrated code fragment technology are necessary.
Device description
4.6
Networking - Leuze multiNet plus
In the Leuze multiNet plus network, up to 32 barcode readers can be networked together.
The respective network devices transmit the read data when requested to by the BCL 500i
(or MA 31) network master. For this purpose, each BCL 500i / BCL 501i is assigned its own
station address which is set with the aid of the display on the respective BCL 500i /
BCL 501i.
The master then transmits the data of all network devices via its host interface to a primary
PLC control system or a computer, i.e. it "collects" the scanner data in the network and transmits it to an interface on the host computer. This reduces interface costs (CPs) and time
spent programming the software.

Figure 4.8:
Networking possibilities using the multiNet plus
Two-wire RS 485
The Leuze multiNet plus is optimised for fast transmission of scanner data to a primary
host computer. The multiNet plus consists physically of a two-wire RS 485 interface through
which the Leuze multiNet plus software protocol is controlled. This makes wiring the
network easy and inexpensive as slaves are connected to one another in parallel.
In principle, networking occurs via a parallel connection of the individual RS 485 interfaces
of the respective barcode scanners. Shielded, twisted pair conductors should be used for
the Leuze multiNet plus. This allows a total network length of up to 1200m.
4.7
Leuze multiScan
The multiScan operating mode is based on Leuze multiNet plus and links individual
barcode readings from multiple barcode scanners into a single decoding result. This is used,
for example, on a packet conveyor system on which the label can be affixed on either the
right or left side, thereby requiring two read stations. To prevent the host from having to
26
BCL 500i \ BCL 501i
Leuze electronic
Device description
always process two readings for a single packet, i.e. a decoding result and a No Read, a
multiScan arrangement is used which transmits only one reading from the two read stations
to the host; this single reading is transmitted by the multiScan master.
Notice!
Thus, from the perspective of the host, the scanner network appears to be just a single barcode reader!
Figure 4.9:
TNT 35/7-24V
For this purpose one multiScan master and one or more multiScan slaves are connected
together via the RS 485 interface.
Scanner arrangement with the multiScan function
Notice!
The multiScan function on the RS 485 interface is possible for minimum of 2 and a maximum of 32 devices!
The protocol set on the RS 485 interface is the multiNet protocol. As a result, during multiScan operation on the RS 485 interface, the multiNet master also functions as the
multiScan master and the multiNet slaves function as multiScan slaves (thus, all multiNet
slave are included in multiScan operation).

Heater
For low-temperature applications to min. -35°C (e.g. in cold storage), the barcode readers
of the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i series can optionally be permanently fitted with a built-in heating
and these barcode readers purchased as separate device models.
4.9
External parameter memory
The optionally available external parameter memory –
based on a USB memory stick (compatible with
version 1.1) – is housed in an external hood with integrated connectors which cover the USB service interface when installed (IP 65). By having available a
copy of the current parameter set of the
BCL 500i \ BCL 501i, the external parameter memory
makes it easy and reduces the time needed to replace
the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i on site. A manual configuration of the exchanged device is thereby omitted.
The procedure for transferring the configuration with the aid of the external parameter
memory is described on page 120.
The delivery contents of the external parameter memory include the hood with integrated
connectors with unscrewable cover and the USB memory stick.
Figure 4.10: External parameter memory
Notice!
To mount, the cover of the hood with integrated connectors must be unscrewed. The tube
is then screwed onto the USB connection on the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i after which the USB
memory stick is plugged into the connection and the hood with integrated connectors closed
with the cover in order to ensure protection class IP 65.

autoReflAct
AutoReflAct stands for Automatic Reflector Activation and permits an activation without
additional sensors. This is achieved by directing the scanner with reduced scanning beam
towards a reflector mounted behind the conveyor path. As long as the scanner is targeted
at the reflector, the reading gate remains closed. If, however, the reflector is blocked by an
object such as a container with a barcode label, the scanner activates the read procedure,
and the label on the container is read. When the path from the scanner to the reflector has
cleared, the read procedure has completed and the scanning beam is reduced and again
directed onto the reflector. The reading gate is closed.
The autoReflAct function uses the scanning beam to simulate a photoelectric sensor and
thus permits an activation without additional sensory mechanism.
4.11
Reference codes
The BCL 500i \ BCL 501i offers the possibility of storing one or two reference codes.
It is possible to store the reference codes by means of teach-in (display command), via the
webConfig tool or via online commands.
The BCL 500i \ BCL 501i can compare read barcodes with one and/or both reference codes
and execute user-configurable functions depending on the comparison result.

autoConfig
With the autoConfig function, the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i offers the user who only wishes to
simultaneously read one code type (symbology) with one number of digits an extremely
simple and convenient configuration option.
After starting the autoConfig function via the display, switching input or from a primary
control, it is sufficient to position a barcode label with the desired code type and number of
digits in the reading field of the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i.
Afterward, barcodes with the same code type and number of digits are recognised and
decoded.

• Necessary conductor cross-section for the voltage supply: at least 0.75mm²; the use
of ready-made cables is, thus, not possible.
Construction
The heating consists of two parts:
• The front cover heater
• The housing heater
Function
When the 24VDC supply voltage is applied to the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i, a temperature
switch initially only connects the heating to electrical power (front cover heater and housing
heater). During the heating phase (around 30min), when the inside temperature rises above
15°C, the temperature switch connects the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i to the supply voltage. This
is followed by the self test and the changeover to read operation. The "PWR" LED lights up
showing overall readiness for operation.
When the inside temperature reaches approximately 18 °C, another temperature switch
turns the housing heater off and, if necessary, back on again (if the inside temperature drops
below 15°C). This does not interrupt the read operation. The front cover heater remains activated until an inside temperature of 25°C is reached. At temperatures above this, the front
cover heater switches off and, with a switching hysteresis of 3°C, back on again at an inside
temperature below 22°C.
Electrical connection
The required core cross-section of the connection cable for the voltage supply must be at
least 0.75 mm².
Attention!
The voltage supply must not be looped through from one device to the next.

Barcode characteristics
Notice!
Please note that the size of the barcode module influences the maximum reading distance
and the width of the reading field. Therefore, when selecting a mounting location and/or the
barcode label, take into account the different reading characteristics of the scanner with various barcode modules.

Figure 5.4:
= Module: The narrowest line or space of a barcode in
mm
= Wide element: Wide lines and spaces are a multiple
(ratio) of the module.
Module x Ratio = ZB (Normal Ratio 1 : 2.5)
= Quiet zone: The quiet zone should be at least 10
times the module, but not less than 2.5mm.
= Code length: The length of the barcode in mm including the start and stop characters. The quiet zone is
included depending on the code definition.
= Bar length: Height of the elements in mm
The most important characteristics of a barcode
The range in which the barcode can be read by the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i (the so-called
reading field) depends on the quality of the printed barcode and its dimensions.
Therefore, above all, the module of a barcode is decisive for the size of the reading field.
Notice!
A rule of thumb: The smaller the module of the barcode is, the smaller the maximum reading
distance and reading field width will be.

Reading field curves for heating devices
The reading field curves of the heating devices differ to some extent from the normal reading
curves due to the optics heating and are somewhat reduced in the reading field width as well
as in the reading field height!
• The maximum opening angle for all oscillating and deflection mirror devices
(BCL 500i \ BCL 501i…100 H) is reduced to ±28° (without heating = ±30°).
• In addition, the maximum swivel range for all oscillating mirror devices
(BCL 500i \ BCL 501i O…100 H) is reduced to ±12° (without heating = ±20°). The
deflection mirror models (BCL 500i \ BCL 501i S…100 H) are not affected by this limitation.
• The reading field curves and opening angles are unchanged for all line scanners with
heating (BCL 500i \ BCL 501i S…102 H), .
For details, please refer to the following reading field curves for the heating devices.

Device arrangement
6.3.1
Selecting a mounting location
In order to select the right mounting location, several factors must be considered:
• Size, orientation, and position tolerance of the barcodes on the objects to be
scanned.
• The reading field of the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i in relation to the barcode module width.
• The resulting minimum and maximum reading distance from the respective reading
field (see chapter 5.5 "Reading field curves / optical data").
• The permissible line lengths between the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i and the host system
depending on which interface is used.
• The correct time for data output. The BCL 500i \ BCL 501i should be positioned in
such a way that, taking into consideration the time required for data processing and
the conveyor belt speed, there is sufficient time to e.g. initiate sorting operations on
the basis of the read data.
• The display and control panel should be very visible and accessible.
• For configuring and commissioning with the webConfig tool, the USB interface should
be easily accessible.
For specific information, please refer to chapter 4.4.

Installation and mounting
Notice!
The beam exits the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i as follows for the respective devices:
- line scanner parallel to the housing base
- oscillating mirror and deflection mirror perpendicular to the housing base
The black areas in figure 6.1 are the housing base. The best read results are obtained when:
• The BCL 500i \ BCL 501i is mounted in such a way that the scanning beam is incident on the barcode at an angle of inclination greater than ±10° … 15° to vertical.
• The reading distance lies in the middle area of the reading field.
• The barcode labels are of good print quality and have good contrast ratios.
• You do not use high-gloss labels.
• There is no direct sunlight.
6.3.2
Avoiding total reflection – Line scanner
The barcode label must be positioned at an angle of inclination greater than ±10° … 15°
from vertical in order to avoid total reflection of the laser beam (see figure 6.5)!
Total reflection occurs whenever the laser light of the barcode reader is directly incident on
the surface of the barcode at an angle of 90°. The light directly reflected by the barcode may
overload the barcode reader and thereby cause non-readings!
The BCL 500i \ BCL 501i should be mounted in such a way
that the scanning beam is incident on the barcode at an angle of inclination greater than ±10° … 15° to vertical.

Total reflection – line scanner
Avoiding total reflection – oscillating/deflection-mirror scanner
For the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i with oscillating/deflection mirror, the laser beam exits at an
angle of 90° to vertical.
For the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i with deflection mirror, it is also possible to use software to
adjust the direction of the beam by ±10°.
For the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i with oscillating mirror, the swivel range of ±20° (±12° for
devices with heating) is to be taken into account.
This means that in order to be on the safe side and to avoid total reflection, the
BCL 500i \ BCL 501i with oscillating/deflection mirror must be inclined upward or downward
20° … 30°!

ª When selecting a mounting location, pay attention to:
• Maintaining the required environmental conditions (temperature, humidity).
• Possible soiling of the reading window due to liquids, abrasion by boxes, or packaging material residues.
• Lowest possible chance of damage to the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i by mechanical collision or jammed parts.
• Possible extraneous light (no direct sunlight or sunlight reflected by the barcode).
6.3.5
Devices with integrated heating
ª For devices with integrated heating, also observe the following points:
• Mount the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i in a way which provides maximum thermal isolation,
e.g. using rubber-bonded metal.
• Mount in such a way that the device is protected from draughts and wind; mount additional shields if necessary.
Notice!
When installing the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i in a protective housing, it must be ensured that the
scanning beam can exit the protective housing without obstruction.

Maximum permissible read angles between BCL 500i \ BCL 501i and barcode
The optimum alignment of the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i is accomplished when the scan line
scans the code bars almost at a right angle (90°). All read angles that are possible between
the scan line and barcode must be taken account (figure 6.7).

The barcode readers of the BCL 500i … series are designed in accordance with safety class
III for supply by PELV (protective extra-low voltage with reliable disconnection).
ª Ensure that the functional earth (FE) is connected correctly. Unimpaired operation is only
guaranteed when the functional earth is connected properly. All electrical disturbances
(EMC couplings) are discharged via the functional earth connection.
Switching input / output
The barcode readers of the BCL 500i series are equipped with four freely programmable,
opto-decoupled switching inputs and outputs SWIO_1 … SWIO_4.
The switching inputs can be used to activate various internal functions of the
BCL 500i \ BCL 501i (decoding, autoConfig, …). The switching outputs can be used to
signal the state of the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i and to implement external functions independent
of the primary control.
The two switching inputs/outputs SWIO_1 and SWIO_2 are located on the SW IN/OUT M12
socket and are described in chapter 7.2.3. The other two (SWIO_3 and SWIO_4) of the four
freely configurable switching inputs/outputs are located on the PWR M12 connector.
Notice!
The respective function as input or output can be set via the display or with the aid of the
"webConfig" configuration tool!

Leuze multiNet plus
The Leuze multiNet plus is optimised for fast transmission of scanner data to a primary host
computer. The multiNet plus consists physically of a two-wire RS 485 interface through
which the multiNet plus software protocol is controlled.
This makes wiring the network easy and inexpensive as slaves are connected to one
another in parallel.

Figure 7.8:
Leuze multiNet plus system topology
With the aid of a BCL 500i network master, up to 31 barcode readers can be networked. For
this purpose, each participating BCL 500i or BCL 501i is assigned its respective station
address via the display and the control panel. The devices are networked by connecting the
individual RS 485 interfaces in parallel.
In the Leuze multiNet plus network, the individual network devices sequentially transfer their
data to the network master BCL 500i when requested.
The BCL 500i master then transmits the data of all network devices via its host interface
(either an RS 232 or RS 422) to a primary PLC control or to a computer, i.e. it "collects" the
scanner data in the network and transmits it to an interface on the host computer. This
reduces interface costs (CPs) and time spent programming the software.

Wiring the multiNet plus
Leuze multiNet plus connection hints
Shielded, twisted pair conductors should be used for the Leuze multiNet plus. This allows a
total network length of up to 1200m.
Recommended network cable (e.g. LiYCY 2x0.2mm²):
- Twisted pairs, shielded
- Cross section: min. 0.2mm²
- Copper resistance <100Ω/km
ª When wiring the network, note the following points:
• The RS 485A, RS 485B and GND lines are wired through in the network and must not
in any case be misconnected; the Leuze multiNet plus network is otherwise not functional. It is recommended that the GND of the RS 485 interface of the participants be
wired through with the other wires.
• Connect the shielding to the slaves with FE.
• The maximum line length in the network is 1200m.
• The (physically) last slave in the network should be fitted with a terminating resistor of
220Ω between RS 485A and RS 485B. This prevents reflections on the multiNet plus
and improves the interference immunity.

7.4.2
The BCL 500i as network master
Master operation
The barcode readers of the BCL 500i series are specially designed for master operation in
a network. They manage slave data in the multiNet plus and establish the connection to the
primary host computer. Only a few parameters need to be set for master operation (see
chapter 10 "Commissioning and configuration"). Network commissioning can thus be
performed in very little time.
Last slave address
Unlike the slaves, the network address is not set on the display of the BCL 500i (the master
always has address 00), but rather the last slave address, i.e. the number of the highestvalue slave. As a result, the BCL 500i master is "informed" how many slaves are operating
on the network without you having to call up the webConfig tool. If the network is expanded
at a later time, you only need to change the number of slaves (last slave address) – a task
which can be accomplished with the aid of the display.
Start-up / timeout messages
During the initialisation phase, i.e. after switching-on the operating voltage, the master
searches for the set number of slaves. When a slave is found, the master generates a startup message "S" for the respective found address, e.g. "04S" -> slave with address 04 has
responded correctly.
If a slave is not found or does not respond, the master generates a "timeout" at this address
(response-time timeout).
At the host interface, the slave address and a "T" are output. For example, "08T" means that
no slave has responded at network address 08. The network remains operational after one
or more timeouts, but a slave for which a timeout has been reported cannot be accessed.
Mounting location of the BCL 500i - master
When mounting the BCL 500i, make sure that it is in an easily accessible, clearly visible
location in your system. Once the network has been put into operation, it is possible to set
(configure) each scanner in the network centrally via the USB-service interface or host interface of the BCL 500i without having to connect a PC/terminal to the individual read stations.

The BCL 500i as network slave
The barcode readers of the BCL 500i series can alternatively function as slave participants
in network operation. They now only transmit data to the multiNet - master (e.g. BCL 500i)
when requested to do so by the master and establish the continuing connection to the next
slave via the BUS OUT socket with the aid of an external M12 T-connector (order information see chapter 13.4 "Accessory connectors"). The last participant in the network must be
terminated with a terminating resistor.

System topology of Leuze multiNet plus with BCL 500i as slave
Only a few parameters need to be set for slave operation (see chapter 10 "Commissioning
and configuration"). Network commissioning can thus be performed in very little time.
Slave address
The display of the BCL 500i possesses an important function for setting the network
address. The network address is set on the display, i.e. the respective station number of the
slave. The address which is set must be > 0 since the master always has address 0
(Adr.00).
Each network device with an address > 0 is thereby automatically informed that it is a slave
in the Leuze multiNet plus with this address and that it is initialised and queried by the
network master. No other settings are necessary for commissioning in the Leuze
multiNet plus.
Other settings
The parameters necessary for the reading task, such as the code types to be read and the
number of digits of the code, must be set. This can be performed via the display as well as
with the aid of the webConfig tool.

The BCL 501i as network slave
The BCL 501i barcode readers are specially designed for slave operation in a network. They
transmit data to the multiNet master only after the master prompts it to do so and establish
the continuing connection via the BUS OUT socket to the slaves which follow. Only a few
parameters need to be set for slave operation (see chapter 10 "Commissioning and configuration"). Network commissioning can thus be performed in very little time.
The connection is performed as shown in figure 7.8.
Slave address
With the BCL 501i, the network address is set on the display, i.e. the respective station
number of the slave. The address which is set must be > 0 since the master always has
address 0 (Adr.00).
Each network device with an address > 0 is thereby automatically informed that it is a slave
in the Leuze multiNet plus with this address and that it is initialised and queried by the
network master. No other settings are necessary for commissioning in the Leuze
multiNet plus.
Other settings
The parameters necessary for the reading task, such as the code types to be read and the
number of digits of the code, must be set. This can be performed via the display as well as

If the BCL 500i is configured as a stand-alone device or a network master, the framing protocol defines how the data between the BCL 500i and the host are exchanged. The framing protocol is a character-based protocol for the transmission of ASCII characters. It
groups the characters to be transmitted into a datablock and frames the block with control
characters. Various block checking methods are optionally available for protecting the
integrity of the data.
The decimal value of the desired ASCII character must be entered here. For a CR (Carriage Return) character for example, you need to enter 13. An ASCII character table can

Additional settings for the BCL 500i and the BCL 501i
After the basic configuration of the operating mode and the communication parameters, you
need to carry out further settings:
• Decoding and processing the read data
• Control of the decoding
• Control of the switching outputs
10.3.1 Decoding and processing the read data
The BCL 500i \ BCL 501i offers the following options:
• Setting the number of labels to be decoded for each reading gate (0 … 64). This is
done via the Max. no. of labels parameter.
• Definition of up to 8 different code types (4 different types if configured via the display). Labels that match one of the defined code types are decoded. Further parameters can be set for each code type:
• The code type (symbology)
• The Number of digits: either up to 5 different numbers of digits (e.g., 10, 12, 16,
20, 24), or a range (Interval mode) and up to three additional numbers of digits
(e.g., 2 … 10, 12, 16, 26)
• The Reading reliability: the set value specifies how many times a label must
be read and decoded with the same result before the result is accepted as valid.
• Activation of the code fragment technology (CRT, in the webConfig tool only)
• Additional code type specific settings (in the webConfig tool only)
• Check digit method used for decoding as well as the type of Check digit output for the read result. The two possibilities for the latter are Standard (corresponds to the standard for the selected code type/symbology) and not Standard.
TNT 35/7-24V
ª Define at least one code type with the desired settings.
• Via webConfig:
Configuration -> Decoder
• Or, alternatively, via the display
Parameter -> Decoder table
Data processing via the webConfig tool
In the Data and Output submenus of the Configuration main menu, the webConfig tool
provides extensive data processing options to adapt the functionality of the
BCL 500i \ BCL 501i to the specific reading task:
• Data filtering and segmentation in the Data submenu:
• Data filtering according to characteristics for handling identical barcode information
• Data segmentation for differentiating between identifier and content of the read
data
• Data filtering according to content and/or identifier in order to suppress the output
of barcodes with specific content/identifiers
• Completeness inspection of the read data

Commissioning and configuration
• Sorting and formatting the output data in the Output submenu:
• Configuration of up to 3 different sorting criteria. Sorting by physical data and content of the read barcodes.
• Formatting of the data output for the HOST.
• Formatting of the data output for the display.
10.3.2
Control of the decoding
In general, decoding is controlled via one or more of the configurable switching inputs/
outputs. For this purpose, the respective connection to the SW IN/OUT and POWER interfaces must be configured as a switching input.
Via a switching input, you can:
•
•
•
•
•
start decoding
stop decoding
start decoding and then stop decoding after a configurable time period
read a reference code
start the automatic code type configuration (AutoConfig)
ª Connect the required control devices (photoelectric sensor, proximity switch, etc.) as
described in chapter 7 to the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i.
ª Configure the connected switching inputs according to your requirements. To do this, first
set the I/O mode to Input and then configure the switching behaviour:
• Via webConfig:
Configuration -> Device -> Switching inputs/outputs
• Or, alternatively, via the display
Parameter -> Digital SWIO -> Switching input/output 1-4
Notice!
Alternatively, one can also activate decoding via the online command ’+’ and deactivate it
via the online command ’-’. Further information on the online commands can be found in
chapter 11.
Advanced decoder control via the webConfig tool
The webConfig tool provides advanced functions, in particular for deactivating decoding.
These may be accessed via the Control submenu of the Configuration main menu. You
can:
• activate decoding automatically (delayed)
• stop decoding after a maximum reading gate time
• stop decoding via the completeness mode, if:
• the maximum number of barcodes to be decoded has been decoded
• a positive reference code comparison has taken place.

Commissioning and configuration
10.3.3 Control of the switching outputs
By using the switching inputs/outputs of the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i, external event-controlled
functions can be implemented without assistance from the primary process control. For this
purpose, the respective connection at the SW IN/OUT and POWER interfaces must be
configured as a switching output.
A switching output can be activated:
• at the start/end of the reading gate
• depending on the read result:
• reference code comparison positive/negative
• read result valid/invalid
• depending on the state of the device:
• ready/not ready
• data transmission active/not active
• active/standby
• error/no error
• etc.
ª As described in chapter 7 of the manual, connect the required switching outputs of the
BCL 500i \ BCL 501i.
ª Configure the connected switching outputs according to your requirements. To do this,
first set the I/O mode to Output and then configure the switching behaviour:

Transmitting configuration data
Instead of going through the tedious task of configuring every parameter of the
BCL 500i \ BCL 501i individually, you can also conveniently transfer configuration data.
In general, there are two possibilities for transferring configuration data between two
BCL 500i \ BCL 501i barcode readers:
• Storage in a file and transfer using the webConfig tool
• Using the external parameter memory
10.4.1
Via the webConfig tool
With the webConfig tool, you can store entire configurations of the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i on
data carriers and transfer them from these to the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i.
This storage of configuration data is especially useful if you want to store basic configurations which will require only minor changes.
In the webConfig tool, you store the configuration data via the buttons in the upper part of
the middle window of all submenus of the Configuration main menu.

10.4.2
With the external parameter memory
The use of the external parameter memory permits the easy replacement of a defective
BCL 500i \ BCL 501i on site.
This requires an external parameter memory to be installed permanently to the USB connection of the BCL 500i \ BCL 501i.
The BCL 500i \ BCL 501i stores a copy of the current configuration in the external parameter memory. This copy is immediately updated when the configuration is changed via the

Command
’JP’
Description
This command simplifies mounting and alignment of the
BCL 500i \ BCL 501i. After activating the function with ’JP+’, the
BCL 500i \ BCL 501i continuously supplies status information to the serial
interfaces.
With this online command, the scanner is set to terminate the decoding
after 100 successfully decoded labels and output the status information.
Subsequently, the read process is reactivated automatically.
In addition to the output of the status information, the laser beam is used
to display the reading quality. Depending on how many read results could
be extracted, the duration of the laser's "off" time increases.
If the reading quality is high, the laser beam flashes in brief, regular intervals. The worse the decoder decodes, the longer the pauses become during which the laser is switched off. The flashing intervals become more
and more irregular because the laser may, in total, be active for longer to
extract more labels. The duration of the pauses has been stepped in such
a way that they can be distinguished by the eye.

Notice!
With this function, only code types are recognised that are identified using the autoConfig
function or which were set in the set-up.
ª After each reading via an ’RTy’ command, explicitly switch off the function again since
failure to do so will interfere with other commands as well as prevent execution of a new
’RTx’ command.

The command activates decoding. This command is used to activate
the reading gate. It remains active until it is deactivated by one of the
following criteria:
• Deactivation by a manual command
• Deactivation by a switching input
• Deactivation upon reaching the specified read quality (equal
scans)
• Deactivation by timeout
• Deactivation upon reaching a preset number of scans without
