Chapter 1
Introduction
Overview
Symbol Technologies’ LS 6000 scanner combines the benefits of
omni-directional scanning with a light-weight, hand-held
design. The scanner converts easily to hands-free use with an
optional presentation stand.
The LS 6000 successfully reads most code symbologies,
densities, and colors, produced by a wide range of printing
techniques.
The LS 6000 scanner supports the following interfaces:
!
!
LS 6004-I000 (RS-232C) - This scanner contains onboard discrete RS-232C communications for connecting
to RS-232C asynchronous terminals and host systems. It
also accommodates any of the Synapse™ “Smart
Cables” which allows you to connect to a wide variety
of host systems.
LS 6004-I090 (RS-232C with EAS) - This variation of
the LS 6004 also supports Checkpoint Electronic Article
Surveillance (EAS) modes V and VII.
1-1
LS 6000 Series Product Reference Guide
!
!
LS 6005-I000 (IBM 468X/469X) - The LS 6005 is fully
compatible with the entire line of IBM 468X/469X
terminals. It also accommodates the full line of Synapse
Smart Cables.
LS 6005-I090 (IBM 468X/469X with EAS) - The LS
6005-I090 also provides additional signal lines for EAS
deactivation (Checkpoint modes V and VII).
Using Your Scanner
If the scanner is powered by the host, ensure the host is
connected to a power outlet. When power is applied to the host,
the scanner powers up.
If the scanner is powered by an external power supply, ensure
the power supply is connected to a power outlet. When the
power supply is connected to the scanner, the scanner powers
up.
The green LED on top of the scanner illuminates and 3 powerup beeps sound, indicating the scanner is operational.
The LS 6000’s LED and beeper indicate scanning activity. These
indications are described in LED Indications and Beeper
Indications on page 3-5.
If the scanner is inactive for more than a pre-programmed
length of time, it enters a low power “rest” mode to conserve
energy. When you need to scan again, just bring a bar code to
the scanner window to “wake up” the scanner.

Chapter 3
Scanning With the LS 6000
Scanning In Hand-Held Mode
The LS 6000 may be placed on the counter-top or in the Desk
Mount Stand (optional). The scanner operates in one of the
following three trigger modes, programmable by the bar codes
in Trigger Mode on page 5-16:
!
!
!
Triggered Omnidirectional Mode (Default)
An omnidirectional scan pattern activates upon trigger
pull.
Triggered Single Scan Line Mode
A single scan line appears upon trigger pull.
Combination Mode
The omnidirectional scan pattern is always on and ready
to decode. When the trigger is pulled, the scanner emits
a single scan line to decode, then reverts back to
omnidirectional constant-on. This mode is only for
hand-held use.
3-1
LS 6000 Series Product Reference Guide
To scan in hand-held mode, pick up the scanner and hold it
within the scanning range for the bar code. If the scanner is in
the constant-on mode, it decodes the bar code automatically. If
the scanner is in a triggered mode, pull the trigger to activate the
scan pattern and decode the bar code.
Figure 3-1. Holding the Scanner
3-2
Scanning With the LS 6000
Scanning in Hands-Free
(Presentation) Mode
To place the LS 6000 scanner in the optional Hands-Free
Presentation Stand, slide the rubber “chin” support on the
scanner into the notch in the stand until the scanner is firmly
seated. The scanner emits a constant-on omnidirectional
pattern. To scan a bar code, bring the bar code anywhere within

Selecting Beeper Volume
The LS 6000 emits a short beep when it successfully reads a bar
code. There are three volume settings for this decode beep. To
change the setting, hold down the trigger for five seconds. The
scanner cycles through three settings, emitting a 2-beep tone at
each setting. To select a particular setting, release the trigger
after the desired 2-beep tone.
Note: Beeper volume can also be set by
scanning the programming bar codes
for Beeper Volume on page 5-19.
To adjust the frequency (tone) of the scanner’s beeper, see Beeper
Frequency on page 5-21.

Maintenance and Specifications
Maintaining Your Scanner
The only maintenance your LS 6000 scanner requires is an
occasional cleaning of the scan window to remove fingerprints
or other debris. Since the LS 6000 scan window is a high
performance optical element, care should be given during
cleaning.
Use only a mild soap and water solution applied to a soft, clean
cloth (NOT directly to the scan window). Buff the scan window
gently with the cloth to remove any streaking.

LS 6000 Series Product Reference Guide
Scan Zone
When an omnidirectional mode is selected, the LS 6000 scanner
emits a 20-line scan pattern designed to allow you to read bar
codes, even very long and narrow ones, easily from almost any
angle. The scan pattern is projected directly out of the scan
window creating the three dimensional “scan zone” shown
below. To read a bar code, present the bar code within this
pattern.
10” (100% UPC)
Note: This scan zone is based on the
use of a 100% UPC/EAN bar code.
The zone will vary for different code
types and densities.

Operational Parameters
The LS 6000 is shipped with the settings shown in the Table 51 beginning on page 5-2. These default values are stored in nonvolatile memory and are preserved even when the scanner is
powered down. You can change these default values by
scanning the appropriate bar codes included in this manual.
These new values replace the standard default values in
memory. The default parameter values can be recalled by
scanning the SET ALL DEFAULTS bar code on page 5-7.
If you are using a Synapse cable, your host is autodetected, so
no host bar codes need to be scanned. If not, you must select a
terminal type even if the default parameters suit your needs. The
scanner automatically identifies the host type on power-up. It
makes this determination provided the host is powered-up
before the scanner is attached to it. You must then select the
appropriate terminal type for that host. For example, if the
scanner is connected to an IBM 4683, after you hear the powerup beeps, select the proper port from the choices in IBM 46XX
Host Types on page 5-8.

UPC/EAN Predecode Block
UPC/EAN bar codes are made up of two blocks representing
“left” and “right” halves. For example, bar code 1234567890
is divided into left block “12345”, and right block “67890”. To
maximize its aggressiveness, the LS 6000 can decode a UPC/
EAN symbol by “splicing” together a left block read by one
scan line, and a right block read by another.
Reject Predecode Block
This option provides additional protection (beyond the
embedded check digit) against mis-splicing a UPC/EAN block
from a symbol that has just been decoded (but has not
completely exited the scanner’s field of view), with a block from
a new symbol that has just been presented to the scanner. This
option requires the scanner to compare the new symbol against
the symbol just decoded to see if there are common blocks. If
either the left or right blocks match between symbols, the
scanner rejects the common block for the programmed Decode
Time-Off interval.

UPC/EAN Security Level
The LS 6000 offers four levels of decode security for UPC/EAN
bar codes. Increasing levels of security are provided for
decreasing levels of bar code quality. There is an inverse
relationship between security and scanner aggressiveness, so be
sure to choose only that level of security necessary for any given
application.
UPC/EAN Security Level 0
This is the default setting which allows the scanner to operate in
its most aggressive state, while providing sufficient security in
decoding “in-spec” UPC/EAN bar codes.
UPC/EAN SECURITY LEVEL 0
5-51
LS 6000 Series Product Reference Guide
UPC/EAN Security Level 1
As bar code quality levels diminish, certain characters become
prone to misdecodes before others (i.e., 1, 2, 7, 8). If you are
experiencing mis-decodes of poorly printed bar codes, and the
mis-decodes are limited to these characters, select this security
level.
UPC/EAN SECURITY LEVEL 1
UPC/EAN Security Level 2
If you are experiencing misdecodes of poorly printed bar codes,
and the misdecodes are not limited to characters 1, 2, 7, and 8,
select this security level.

Programming the LS 6000
UPC/EAN Security Level 3
If you have tried Security Level 2, and are still experiencing

option is an extreme measure against misdecoding severely out
of spec bar codes. Selection of this level of security significantly
impairs the decoding ability of the scanner. If this level of
security is necessary, you should try to improve the quality of
your bar codes.

When enabled, the ASCII character set assigns a code to letters,
punctuation marks, numerals, and most control keystrokes on
the keyboard.
The first 32 codes are non-printable and are assigned to
keyboard control characters such as BACKSPACE and
RETURN. The other 96 are called printable codes because all
but SPACE and DELETE produce visible characters.
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 $H emulates the keystroke BACKSPACE. Scanning
ABC$M outputs the keystroke equivalent of ABC ENTER.

Hardware Handshaking
The data interface consists of an RS-232C port. The port has
been 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 selected, scan data is
transmitted according to the following sequence:
!
The controller reads the CTS line for activity. If CTS is
asserted, the controller waits up to 2 seconds for the host
to negate the CTS line. If, after 2 seconds (default), the
CTS line is still asserted, the scanner sounds a transmit
error and any scanned data is lost.
When the CTS line is negated, the controller asserts the
!
RTS line and waits up to 2 seconds for the host to assert
CTS. When the host asserts CTS, data is transmitted. If,
after 2 seconds (default), the CTS line is not asserted, the
scanner sounds a transmit error and discards the data.
When data transmission is complete, the controller
!
negates RTS 10 msec after sending the last character.
The host should respond by negating CTS. The
!
controller checks for a negated CTS upon the next
transmission of data.
During the transmission of data, the CTS line should be
asserted. If CTS is deasserted 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 communications sequence fails, the scanner issues
an error indication. In this case, the data is lost and must be
rescanned.

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.
1 STOP BIT
2 STOP BITS

Beep on <BEL>
When this parameter is enabled, the scanner issues a beep when
a <BEL> character is detected on the RS-232C serial line. <BEL>
is issued to gain a user's attention to indicate an illegal entry or
other important event.

Intercharacter Delay
Select the intercharacter delay option matching host
requirements. The intercharacter delay gives the host system
time to service its receiver and perform other tasks between
characters. The delay period can range from no delay to 99 msec
in 1-msec increments. After scanning the bar code below, scan
two bar codes beginning on page 5-117 to set the desired timeout. If you make an error or wish to change your selection,
scan CANCEL on page 5-122.

Programming Reference
UCC/EAN-128
UCC/EAN-128 is a convention for printing data fields with
standard Code 128 bar code symbols. UCC/EAN-128 symbols
are distinguished by a leading FNC 1 character as the first or
second character in the symbol. Other FNC 1 characters are
used to delineate fields.
When EAN-128 symbols are read, they are transmitted after
special formatting strips off the leading FNC 1 character and
replaces other FNC 1 characters with the ASCII 29 GS control
character.
When AIM symbology identifiers are transmitted, the modifier
character indicates the position of the leading FNC 1 character
according to AIM guidelines. For example, ]c1 indicates a UCC/
EAN-128 symbol with a leading FNC1 character.
Standard Code 128 bar codes which do not have a leading FNC
1 may still be used but are not encoded according to the EAN128 convention. Standard Code 128 and UCC/EAN-128 may
be mixed in an application. The LS 6000 autodiscriminates
A-1
LS 6000 Series Product Reference Guide
between these symbols, and can enable or disable one or both
code types via bar code menus. Table A-1 indicates the
behavior of the LS 6000 in each of the four possible
parameter settings.

Example:A Bookland EAN bar code 123456789X is
transmitted as ]X0123456789X
According to AIM standards, a UPC with supplemental bar
code is transmitted in the following format:
]E0 (UPC chars) (terminator) ]E2 (supplemental)
(terminator)
In the LS 6000, however, the format is changed to:
]E0 (UPC chars) ]E2 (supplemental)
Therefore, a UPC with two supplemental characters,
01234567890510, is transmitted to the host as a 21-character
string, ]E00012345678905]E110.
