Chapter 1 Getting Started
Introduction
The scanner combines excellent scanning performance and advanced ergonomics to provide the best value in a
lightweight laser scanner. Whether used as a hand-held scanner or in hands-free mode in a stand, the scanner
ensures comfort and ease of use for extended periods of time.
In addition to single-line laser scanning, the scanner supports multi-line rastering. Multi-line rastering allows the
scanner to capture stacked GS1 DataBar codes and increases angular tolerances, minimizing product orientation
and hand movements. Multi-line rastering also allows the scanner to read poor quality bar codes. For more
information about scanning modes and stacked GS1 DataBar codes, see Scan Pattern on page 4-6 and GS1
DataBar on page C-3.
NOTE
The scanner does not currently support PDF417 bar codes and its variants.

Beeper Definitions (Continued)
Beeper Sequence
Indication
Scanner gives a power-up beep after
scanning a USB Device Type.
Communication with the bus must be established before the
scanner can operate at the highest power level.
This power-up beep occurs more
than once.
The USB bus may put the scanner in a state where power to the
scanner is cycled on and off more than once. This is normal and
usually happens when the host cold boots.
RS-232 only
1 short high beep
A <BEL> character is received and Beep on <BEL> is enabled.
LED Definitions
In addition to beeper sequences, the scanner communicates with the user using a two-color LED display. Table 2-2
defines LED colors that display during scanning.
Table 2-2 Standard LED Definitions
LED
Indication
Off
No power is applied to the scanner, or the scanner is on and
ready to scan.
Green
A bar code was successfully decoded.
Red
A data transmission error or scanner malfunction occurred.

Scanning in Hand-Held Mode
Install and program the scanner (see Setting Up the Scanner on page 1-3). For assistance, contact the local
supplier or Motorola Enterprise Mobility Support.
To scan in hand-held mode:
1.
Ensure all connections are secure. (See the host chapter for the scanner.)
2.
Aim the scanner at the bar code.
3.
Press the trigger.
Single-Line Mode
Multi-Line Raster Mode

4.
Upon successful decode, the scanner beeps and the LED turns green. (For more information about beeper
and LED definitions, see Table 2-1 and Table 2-2.)
NOTE
Scan line lengths vary depending on the scan line width selected (see Scan Line Width on page 4-7). A
full scan line width is the default. Medium and short scan line widths are useful for scanning menus or
pick-lists.
Scanning
2-5
Aiming
On a typical UPC 100% hold the scanner between contact and 19 inches from the symbol (see Decode Zone on
page 2-9). When scanning using a single-line scan mode, ensure the scan line crosses every bar and space of the
symbol.
012345
012345
Figure 2-3 Acceptable and Incorrect Single-Line Aiming
When scanning using a multi-line scan mode, at least one scan line must cross every bar and space of the symbol.
012345
012345
Figure 2-4 Acceptable and Incorrect Multi-Line Aiming
Regardless of the scan mode, the scan line is smaller when the scanner is closer to the symbol and larger when it
is farther from the symbol. Scan symbols with smaller bars or elements (mil size) closer to the scanner, and those
with larger bars or elements (mil size) farther from the scanner.
Do not hold the scanner directly over the bar code. Laser light reflecting directly back into the scanner from the bar
code is known as specular reflection. This specular reflection can make decoding difficult.
NOTE
Scan line lengths vary depending on the scan line width selected. A full scan line width is the default.
Medium and short scan line widths are useful for scanning menus or pick-lists.
For more information about scan line widths and scanning modes, see Scan Line Width on page 4-7 and Scan
Pattern on page 4-6, respectively.

Chapter 4 User Preferences
Introduction
If desired, program the scanner to perform various functions, or activate different features. This chapter describes
each user preference feature and provides the programming bar codes necessary for selecting these features.
The scanner ships with the settings shown in the User Preferences Default Table on page 4-2 (also see Appendix
A, Standard Defaults for all host device and miscellaneous defaults). If the default values suit requirements,
programming may not be necessary.
To set feature values, scan a single bar code or a short bar code sequence. The settings are stored in non-volatile
memory and are preserved even when the scanner is powered down.
If not using a Synapse or USB cable, select a host type (see each host chapter for specific host information) after
the power-up beeps sound. This is only necessary upon the first power-up when connected to a new host.
To return all features to their default values, see Default Parameters on page 4-3. Throughout the programming bar
code menus, default values are indicated with asterisks (*).
* Indicates Default
*High Frequency
Feature/Option
Scanning Sequence Examples
In most cases, scanning one bar code sets the parameter value. For example, to set the beeper tone to high, scan
the High Frequency (beeper tone) bar code listed under Beeper Tone on page 4-4. The scanner issues a fast
warble beep and the LED turns green, signifying a successful parameter entry.
Other parameters, such as Serial Response Time-Out or Data Transmission Formats, require scanning several
bar codes. See these parameter descriptions for this procedure.

Errors While Scanning
Unless otherwise specified, when an error is made during a scanning sequence, just re-scan the correct
parameter.

The scanner can be reset to two types of defaults: factory defaults or custom defaults. Scan the appropriate bar
code below to reset the scanner to its default settings and/or set the scanner’s current settings as the custom
default.
• Restore Defaults - Resets all default parameters as follows:
• If custom default values were configured (see Write to Custom Defaults), the custom default values are set
for all parameters each time the Restore Defaults bar code below is scanned.
• If no custom default values were configured, the factory default values are set for all parameters each time
the Restore Defaults bar code below is scanned. (For factory default values, see Table A-1 beginning on
page A-1.)
• Set Factory Defaults - Scan the Set Factory Defaults bar code below to eliminate all custom default values and
set the scanner to factory default values. (For factory default values, see Table A-1 beginning on page A-1.)
• Write to Custom Defaults - Custom default parameters can be configured to set unique default values for all
parameters. After changing all parameters to the desired default values, scan the Write to Custom Defaults
bar code below to configure custom defaults.

line movement (no raster). (For an example of a single-line scan, see Figure 2-3 on page 2-5.)
• Multi-line Smart Raster - Scan Multi-line Smart Raster for a scan line begins as a single line and moves
up and down (rasters) when a partial scan of a bar code is detected, or no bar code is decoded 500 ms after
the trigger is pulled. Upon seeing a stacked GS1 DataBar code, the scanner immediately rasters. (For an
example of a multi-line scan, see Figure 2-4 on page 2-5.)
• Multi-line Always Raster (default) - Scan Multi-line Always Raster for rastering (up and down scan line
movement) to begin immediately.

Chapter 5 Keyboard Wedge Interface
Introduction
This chapter describes how to set up a Keyboard Wedge interface with the scanner. With this interface, the
scanner is connected between the keyboard and host computer, and translates bar code data into keystrokes. The
host computer accepts the keystrokes as if they originated from the keyboard. This mode adds bar code reading
functionality to a system designed for manual keyboard input. Keyboard keystrokes are simply passed through.
Throughout the programming bar code menus, default values are indicated with asterisks (*).

Intra-Keystroke Delay
When enabled, an additional delay is inserted between each emulated key depression and release. This sets the
Keystroke Delay parameter to a minimum of 5 msec as well.

Caps Lock Override
When enabled, on AT or AT Notebook hosts, the keyboard ignores the state of the Caps Lock key. Therefore, an ‘A’
in the bar code is sent as an ‘A’ no matter what the state of the keyboard’s Caps Lock key. Note that if both Caps
Lock On and Caps Lock Override are enabled, Caps Lock Override takes precedence.

Function Key Mapping
ASCII values under 32 are normally sent as control key sequences (see Table 5-2 on page 5-13). When this
parameter is enabled, the keys in bold are sent in place of the standard key mapping. Table entries that do not
have a bold entry remain the same whether or not this parameter is enabled.

ASCII Character Set for Keyboard Wedge
NOTE
Code 39 Full ASCII interprets the bar code special character ($ + % /) preceding a Code 39 character and
assigns an ASCII character value to the pair. For example, when Code 39 Full ASCII is enabled and a +B
is scanned, it is interpreted as b, %J as ?, and %V as @. Scanning ABC%I outputs the keystroke
equivalent of ABC >.

Chapter 6 RS-232 Interface
Introduction
This chapter describes how to set up the scanner with an RS-232 host. The RS-232 interface is used to connect
the scanner to point-of-sale devices, host computers, or other devices with an available RS-232 port (e.g., com
port).
If the host is not listed in Table 6-2, refer to the documentation for the host device to set communication parameters
to match the host.
NOTE
The scanner uses TTL RS-232 signal levels, which interface with most system architectures. For system
architectures requiring RS-232C signal levels, Symbol offers different cables providing TTL-to-RS-232C
conversion. Contact Motorola Enterprise Mobility Support for more information.
Throughout the programming bar code menus, default values are indicated with asterisks (*).

NOTE
Interface cables vary depending on configuration. The connectors illustrated in Figure 6-1 are examples
only. The connectors may be different than those illustrated, but the steps to connect the scanner remain
the same.
1.
Attach the modular connector of the RS-232 interface cable to the cable interface port on the scanner (see
Installing the Interface Cable on page 1-3).
2.
Connect the other end of the RS-232 interface cable to the serial port on the host.
3.
Connect the power supply to the serial connector end of the RS-232 interface cable. Plug the power supply
into an appropriate outlet.
4.
Select the RS-232 host type by scanning the appropriate bar code from RS-232 Host Types on page 6-6.
5.
To modify any other parameter options, scan the appropriate bar codes in this chapter.

Parity
A parity check bit is the most significant bit of each ASCII coded character. Select the parity type according to host
device requirements.
• Select Odd parity and the parity bit value is set to 0 or 1, based on data, to ensure that an odd number of 1
bits are contained in the coded character.
• Select Even parity and the parity bit value is set to 0 or 1, based on data, to ensure that an even number of 1
bits are contained in the coded character.
• Select Mark parity and the parity bit is always 1.

Stop Bit Select
The stop bit(s) at the end of each transmitted character marks the end of transmission of one character and
prepares the receiving device for the next character in the serial data stream. The number of stop bits selected
(one or two) depends on the number the receiving terminal is programmed to accommodate. Set the number of
stop bits to match host device requirements.

Hardware Handshaking
The data interface consists of an RS-232 port designed to operate either with or without the hardware handshaking
lines, Request to Send (RTS), and Clear to Send (CTS).
If Standard RTS/CTS handshaking is not selected, scan data is transmitted as it becomes available. If Standard
RTS/CTS handshaking is selected, scan data is transmitted according to the following sequence:
• The scanner reads the CTS line for activity. If CTS is asserted, the scanner waits up to Host Serial Response
Time-out for the host to de-assert the CTS line. If, after Host Serial Response Time-out, the CTS line is still
asserted, the scanner sounds a transmit error, and any scanned data is lost.
• When the CTS line is de-asserted, the scanner asserts the RTS line and waits up to Host Serial Response
Time-out for the host to assert CTS. When the host asserts CTS, data is transmitted. If, after Host Serial
Response Time-out, the CTS line is not asserted, the scanner sounds a transmit error, and discards the data.
• When data transmission is complete, the scanner de-asserts RTS 10 msec after sending the last character.
• The host should respond by negating CTS. The scanner checks for a de-asserted CTS upon the next
transmission of data.
During the transmission of data, the CTS line should be asserted. If CTS is de-asserted for more than 50 ms
between characters, the transmission is aborted, the scanner sounds a transmission error, and the data is
discarded.
If the above communication sequence fails, the scanner issues an error indication. In this case, the data is lost and
must be rescanned.
If Hardware Handshaking and Software Handshaking are both enabled, Hardware Handshaking takes
precedence.
RS-232 Interface 6 - 11
NOTE
The DTR signal is jumpered to the active state.
• None: Scan the bar code below if no Hardware Handshaking is desired.
• Standard RTS/CTS: Scan the bar code below to select Standard RTS/CTS Hardware Handshaking.
• RTS/CTS Option 1: When RTS/CTS Option 1 is selected, the scanner asserts RTS before transmitting and
ignores the state of CTS. The scanner de-asserts RTS when the transmission is complete.
• RTS/CTS Option 2: When Option 2 is selected, RTS is always high or low (user-programmed logic level).
However, the scanner waits for CTS to be asserted before transmitting data. If CTS is not asserted within
Host Serial Response Time-out, the scanner issues an error indication and discards the data.
• RTS/CTS Option 3: When Option 3 is selected, the scanner asserts RTS prior to any data transmission,
regardless of the state of CTS. The scanner waits up to Host Serial Response Time-out for CTS to be
asserted. If CTS is not asserted during this time, the scanner issues an error indication and discards the
data. The scanner de-asserts RTS when transmission is complete.

Software Handshaking
This parameter offers control of the data transmission process in addition to, or instead of, that offered by hardware
handshaking. There are five options.
If Software Handshaking and Hardware Handshaking are both enabled, Hardware Handshaking takes
precedence.
• None: When this option is selected, data is transmitted immediately. No response is expected from host.
• ACK/NAK: When this option is selected, after transmitting data, the scanner expects either an ACK or NAK
response from the host. When a NAK is received, the scanner transmits the same data again and waits for
either an ACK or NAK. After three unsuccessful attempts to send data when NAKs are received, the scanner
issues an error indication and discards the data.
The scanner waits up to the programmable Host Serial Response Time-out to receive an ACK or NAK. If the
scanner does not get a response in this time, it issues an error indication and discards the data. There are no
retries when a time-out occurs.
• ENQ: When this option is selected, the scanner waits for an ENQ character from the host before transmitting
data. If an ENQ is not received within the Host Serial Response Time-out, the scanner issues an error
indication and discards the data. The host must transmit an ENQ character at least every Host Serial
Response Time-out to prevent transmission errors.
• ACK/NAK with ENQ: This combines the two previous options. For re-transmissions of data, due to a NAK
from the host, an additional ENQ is not required.
• XON/XOFF: An XOFF character turns the scanner transmission off until the scanner receives an XON
character. There are two situations for XON/XOFF:
• XOFF is received before the scanner has data to send. When the scanner has data to send, it waits up to
Host Serial Response Time-out for an XON character before transmission. If the XON is not received
within this time, the scanner issues an error indication and discards the data.
• XOFF is received during a transmission. Data transmission then stops after sending the current byte.
When the scanner receives an XON character, it sends the rest of the data message. The scanner waits
up to 30 seconds for the XON.

Emulation interface creates the Digitized Barcode Pattern (DBP). DBP is a digital signal that represents the
scanned bar code. Different decoders expect the DBP to be in a certain format. The DBP either has the "highs"
represent bars and the "lows" represent spaces (margins), or the "highs" represent spaces (margins) and the
"lows" represent bars.

Convert All Bar Codes to Code 39
By default, the Wand Emulation interface sends data to the attached host in the same symbology that was
decoded. This can be a problem for customers with older systems that do not recognize newer symbologies (for
example, GS1 DataBar).
Enabling this parameter ignores the original symbology decoded, and outputs the data as if it were a Code 39 bar
code. Any lowercase characters in the original data stream are transmitted as uppercase characters. This also
allows ADF rules.
If Ignore Unknown Characters is enabled, any characters that do not have a corresponding character in the Code
39 symbology set are replaced by a space.
If Ignore Unknown Characters is disabled, if any characters that do not have a corresponding character are
encountered, the scanner emits an error beep and no data is transmitted.
NOTE
1ADF
Note: By default, the Wand Emulation interface does not allow scanned data to be processed by
ADF rules. Enabling this parameter has the side effect of allowing the scanned data to be processed by
the ADF rules (refer to the Advanced Data Formatting Programming Guide p/n 72-69680-xx).

Beep Style
The Scanner Emulation host supports three beep styles.
• Beep On Successful Transmit: The scanner beeps when the attached decoder issues the decode signal to
the scanner, so the scanner and the attached decoder beep at the same time.
• Beep At Decode Time: The scanner beeps upon decode. This results in a double beep sequence from most
decoders, since the scanner beeps, and the decoder beeps (at a different frequency) when it successfully
decodes the output.
• Do Not Beep: Only the attached decoder issues the decode beep.

Parameter Pass-Through
The Scanner Emulation host can process parameter bar code messages and send them to the attached decoder.
In this way, customers using Symbol compliant decoders can control the behavior of the entire system by scanning
the necessary parameters only once.
For example, to enable D 2 of 5, scan the D 2 of 5 Enable parameter bar code. The scanner and the attached
decoder both process the parameter.

Chapter 11 123Scan
Introduction
123Scan is a Windows®-based utility that programs the scanner with all parameters including ADF rules. An ADF
rule modifies bar code data before it is sent to the host to ensure compatibility between bar coded data and the
host application. Scanners can be programmed via PC download or by scanning a sheet of bar codes generated
by the utility. Scanner programming is saved in a file for electronic distribution. The 123Scan program includes a
help file.
Communication with 123Scan
To communicate with the 123Scan program which runs on a host computer running a Windows operating system,
use an RS-232 cable to connect the scanner to the host computer (seeConnecting an RS-232 Interface on page
6-2).
123Scan requirements:
• Host computer with Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, or Windows XP
• Scanner
• RS-232 cable.
123Scan Parameter
To communicate with the 123Scan program, load 123Scan, included in the documentation CD-ROM, onto the host
computer, and scan the bar code below. Refer to 123Scan instructions for programming the scanner.
Scan the bar code below to enable the 123Scan interface on the scanner.

Chapter 12 Symbologies
Introduction
This chapter describes symbology features and provides the programming bar codes for selecting these features.
Before programming, follow the instructions in Chapter 1, Getting Started.
The scanner is shipped with the settings shown in the Symbology Parameter Defaults on page 12-2 (also see
Appendix A, Standard Defaults for all host device and miscellaneous defaults). If the default values suit
requirements, programming is not necessary.
To set feature values, scan a single bar code or a short bar code sequence. The settings are stored in non-volatile
memory and are preserved even when the scanner is powered down.
If not using a Synapse or USB cable, select a host type (see each host chapter for specific host information) after
the power-up beeps sound. This is only necessary upon the first power-up when connected to a new host.
To return all features to default values, scan the appropriate default bar code on page 4-3. Throughout the
programming bar code menus, default values are indicated with asterisks (*).
* Indicates Default
*Enable UPC-A
Feature/Option
Scanning Sequence Examples
In most cases, scanning one bar code sets the parameter value. For example, to transmit bar code data without the
UPC-A check digit, simply scan the Do Not Transmit UPC-A Check Digit bar code under Transmit UPC-A Check
Digit on page 12-13. The scanner issues a fast warble beep and the LED turns green, signifying a successful
parameter entry.
Other parameters, such as Set Length(s) for D 2 of 5, require scanning several bar codes. See the individual
parameter, such as Set Length(s) for D 2 of 5, for this procedure.

Decode UPC/EAN/JAN Supplementals
Supplementals are bar codes appended according to specific format conventions (e.g., UPC A+2, UPC E+2, EAN
13+2). The following options are available.
• If you select Ignore UPC/EAN with Supplementals, and the scanner is presented with a UPC/EAN plus
supplemental symbol, the scanner decodes UPC/EAN and ignores the supplemental characters.
• If you select Decode UPC/EAN with Supplementals, the scanner only decodes UPC/EAN symbols with
supplemental characters, and ignores symbols without supplementals.
• If you select Autodiscriminate UPC/EAN Supplementals, the scanner decodes UPC/EAN symbols with
supplemental characters immediately. If the symbol does not have a supplemental, the scanner must decode
the bar code the number of times set via UPC/EAN/JAN Supplemental Redundancy on page 12-13 before
transmitting its data to confirm that there is no supplemental.
• If you select one of the following Supplemental Mode options, the scanner immediately transmits EAN-13
bar codes starting with that prefix that have supplemental characters. If the symbol does not have a
supplemental, the scanner must decode the bar code the number of times set via UPC/EAN/JAN
Supplemental Redundancy on page 12-13 before transmitting its data to confirm that there is no
supplemental. The scanner transmits UPC/EAN bar codes that do not have that prefix immediately.

Set Lengths for Code 39
he length of a code refers to the number of characters (i.e., human readable characters), including check digit(s)
the code contains. Set lengths for Code 39 to any length, one or two discrete lengths, or lengths within a specific
range. If Code 39 Full ASCII is enabled, Length Within a Range or Any Length are the preferred options.
NOTE
When setting lengths for different bar code types by scanning single digit numbers, single digit numbers
must always be preceded by a leading zero.
• One Discrete Length - Select this option to decode only Code 39 symbols containing a selected length.
Select the length using the numeric bar codes in Appendix D, Numeric Bar Codes. For example, to decode

Code 39 Buffering (Scan & Store)
This feature allows the scanner to accumulate data from multiple Code 39 symbols.
Selecting the Scan and Store option (Buffer Code 39) temporarily buffers all Code 39 symbols having a leading
space as a first character for later transmission. The leading space is not buffered.
Decode of a valid Code 39 symbol with no leading space causes transmission in sequence of all buffered data in a
first-in first-out format, plus transmission of the “triggering” symbol. See the following pages for further details.
When the Do Not Buffer Code 39 option is selected, all decoded Code 39 symbols are transmitted immediately
without being stored in the buffer.
This feature affects Code 39 only. If selecting Buffer Code 39, we recommend configuring the scanner to decode
Code 39 symbology only.
Buffer Code 39
(Enable)
*Do Not Buffer Code 39
(Disable)
While there is data in the transmission buffer, selecting Do Not Buffer Code 39 is not allowed. The buffer holds
200 bytes of information.
To disable Code 39 buffering when there is data in the transmission buffer, first force the buffer transmission
(see Transmit Buffer on page 12-29) or clear the buffer.
Buffer Data
To buffer data, Code 39 buffering must be enabled and a Code 39 symbol must be read with a space immediately
following the start pattern.
• Unless the data overflows the transmission buffer, the scanner issues a low/high beep to indicate successful
decode and buffering. (For overflow conditions, see Overfilling Transmission Buffer.)
• The scanner adds the decoded data excluding the leading space to the transmission buffer.
• No transmission occurs.
Clear Transmission Buffer
To clear the transmission buffer, scan the Clear Buffer bar code below, which contains only a start character, a
dash (minus), and a stop character.
• The scanner issues a short high/low/high beep.
• The scanner erases the transmission buffer.
Symbologies 12 - 29
• No transmission occurs.
Clear Buffer
NOTE
Because the Clear Buffer contains only the dash (minus) character, set the Code 39 length to include
length 1 before scanning this bar code.
Transmit Buffer
There are two methods to transmit the Code 39 buffer.
1.
Scan the Transmit Buffer bar code below which contains only a start character, a plus (+), and a stop
character.
• The scanner transmits and clears the buffer.
• The scanner issues a low/high beep.
Transmit Buffer
2.
Scan a Code 39 bar code with a leading character other than a space.
• The scanner appends new decode data to buffered data.
• The scanner transmits and clears the buffer.
• The scanner signals that the buffer was transmitted with a low/high beep.
• Scanner transmits and clears the buffer.
NOTE
Because the Transmit Buffer contains only a plus (+) character, set the Code 39 length to include length 1
before scanning this bar code.
Overfilling Transmission Buffer
The Code 39 buffer holds 200 characters. If the symbol just read results in an overflow of the transmission buffer:
• The scanner indicates that the symbol was rejected by issuing three long, high beeps.
• No transmission occurs. The data in the buffer is not affected.
Attempt to Transmit an Empty Buffer
If the symbol just read was the Transmit Buffer symbol and the Code 39 buffer is empty:
• A short low/high/low beep signals that the buffer is empty.
• No transmission occurs.
• The buffer remains empty.

he length of a code refers to the number of characters (i.e., human readable characters), including check digit(s)
the code contains. Set lengths for D 2 of 5 to any length, one or two discrete lengths, or lengths within a specific
range.
• One Discrete Length - Select this option to decode only D 2 of 5 symbols containing a selected length.
Select the length using the numeric bar codes in Appendix D, Numeric Bar Codes. For example, to decode
only D 2 of 5 symbols with 14 characters, scan D 2 of 5 - One Discrete Length, then scan 1 followed by 4.
To correct an error or to change the selection, scan Cancel on page D-3.
• Two Discrete Lengths - Select this option to decode only D 2 of 5 symbols containing either of two
selected lengths. Select lengths using the numeric bar codes in Appendix D, Numeric Bar Codes. For
example, to decode only those D 2 of 5 symbols containing either 2 or 14 characters, select D 2 of 5 - Two
Discrete Lengths, then scan 0, 2, 1, and then 4. To correct an error or to change the selection, scan
Cancel on page D-3.
• Length Within Range - Select this option to decode a D 2 of 5 symbol with a specific length range.
Select lengths using numeric bar codes in Appendix D, Numeric Bar Codes. For example, to decode D 2
of 5 symbols containing between 4 and 12 characters, first scan D 2 of 5 - Length Within Range. Then
scan 0, 4, 1, and 2 (single digit numbers must always be preceded by a leading zero). To correct an error or
change the selection, scan Cancel on page D-3.
• Any Length - Scan this option to decode D 2 of 5 symbols containing any number of characters within the
scanner capability.
NOTE
Due to the construction of the D 2 of 5 symbology, it is possible for a scan line covering only a portion of
the code to be interpreted as a complete scan, yielding less data than is encoded in the bar code. To
prevent this, select specific lengths (D 2 of 5 - One Discrete Length - Two Discrete Lengths) for D 2 of 5
applications.

Symbology - Specific Security Levels
Redundancy Level
The scanner offers four levels of decode redundancy. Select higher redundancy levels for decreasing levels of bar
code quality. As redundancy levels increase, the scanner’s aggressiveness decreases.
Select the redundancy level appropriate for the bar code quality.
Redundancy Level 1
The following code types must be successfully read twice before being decoded:
Code Type
Code Length
Codabar
8 characters or less
MSI
4 characters or less
D 2 of 5

Security Level
The scanner offers four levels of decode security for delta bar codes, which include the Code 128 family,
UPC/EAN, and Code 93. Select increasing levels of security for decreasing levels of bar code quality. There is an
inverse relationship between security and scanner aggressiveness, so choose only that level of security necessary
for any given application.
• Security Level 0: This default setting allows the scanner to operate in its most aggressive state, while
providing sufficient security in decoding most “in-spec” bar codes.
• Security Level 1: Select this option if misdecodes occur. This security level should eliminate most
misdecodes.
• Security Level 2: Select this option if Security level 1 fails to eliminate misdecodes.
• Security Level 3: If Security Level 2 was selected and misdecodes still occur, select this security level. Be
advised, selecting this option is an extreme measure against mis-decoding severely out of spec bar codes.
Selecting this level of security significantly impairs the decoding ability of the scanner. If this level of security
is necessary, try to improve the quality of the bar codes.
*Security Level 0
Security Level 1
Security Level 2
Security Level 3

Bi-directional Redundancy
Enable Bi-directional Redundancy to add security to linear code type security levels. When enabled, a bar code
must be successfully scanned in both directions (forward and reverse) before reporting a good decode.
Enable Bi-directional Redundancy
*Disable Bi-directional Redundancy
Symbology - Intercharacter Gap
The Code 39 and Codabar symbologies have an intercharacter gap that is customarily quite small. Due to various
bar code printing technologies, this gap may grow larger than the maximum size allowed, causing the scanner to
be unable to decode the symbol. If this problem is encountered, scan Large Intercharacter Gaps to tolerate
out-of-specification bar codes.

Chapter 13 Miscellaneous Scanner Options
Introduction
This chapter includes commonly used bar codes to customize how data is transmitted to the host device. Refer to
the Advanced Data Formatting Programming Guide p/n 72-69680-xx for further customization options.
The scanner ships with the settings shown in the Miscellaneous Scanner Options Default Table on page 13-2 (also
see Appendix A, Standard Defaults for all host device and miscellaneous scanner defaults). If the default values
suit requirements, programming is not necessary.
To set feature values, scan a single bar code or a short bar code sequence. The settings are stored in non-volatile
memory and are preserved even when the scanner is powered down.
If not using a Synapse or USB cable, select a host type (see each host chapter for specific host information) after
the power-up beeps sound. This is only necessary upon the first power-up when connected to a new host.
To return all features to default values, scan a default bar code in Default Parameters on page 4-3. Throughout the
programming bar code menus, default values are indicated with asterisks (*).
* Indicates Default
*Disable No Read
Feature/Option
Scanning Sequence Examples
In most cases, scan one bar code to set a specific parameter value. Other parameters, such as Prefix Value,
require scanning several bar codes. See each parameter for descriptions of this procedure.
Errors While Scanning
Unless otherwise specified, to correct an error during a scanning sequence, just re-scan the correct parameter.

Transmit Code ID Character
A Code ID character identifies the code type of a scanned bar code. This may be useful when the scanner is
decoding more than one code type. In addition to any single character prefix already selected, the Code ID
character is inserted between the prefix and the decoded symbol.
Select no Code ID character, a Symbol Code ID character, or an AIM Code ID character. For Code ID Characters,
see Symbol Code Identifiers on page B-1 and AIM Code Identifiers on page B-2.
Symbol Code ID Character
AIM Code ID Character
*None
Prefix/Suffix Values
A prefix and/or one or two suffixes can be appended to scan data for use in data editing. To set a value for a prefix
or suffix, scan a four-digit number (i.e., four bar codes from Appendix D, Numeric Bar Codes) that corresponds to
that value. See Table E-1 on page E-1 for the four-digit codes.
When using host commands to set the prefix or suffix, set the key category parameter to 1, then set the 3-digit
decimal value. See Table E-1 on page E-1 for the four-digit codes.
To correct an error or change a selection, scan Cancel on <Blue><Italic>page D-3.
NOTE
To use Prefix/Suffix values, first set the Scan Data Transmission Format on page 13-4.
