Introduction
Bar code laser scanners and laser imagers are used to read and then decode the data in bar codes.
Bar code readers have many forms -- some are enclosed in a hand held device, others are connected to a hand held device by
a cable, some are connected to the hand held device wirelessly and a few bar code readers are enclosed in a ring device that is
worn on the finger and cabled to a body-worn device.
Configuration bar codes in this guide are designed for a specific type of bar code decoder engine. Determining the type of bar
code decoder engine for your Mobile Device is an important requirement before using it to scan a configuration bar code. If you
are unsure, contact your System Administrator for assistance.
An asterisk (*) next to an option indicates the default setting.
Ring Scanners and Ring Imagers
Ring Scanners and Ring Imagers are bar code readers that can be worn on either hand. They may be tethered to:
• the Bluetooth® module,
• the HX2 mobile device, or
• the HX3 voice mobile device.
The ring scanner is secured to a finger. The Bluetooth module can be worn on the back of the hand or the wrist. The Bluetooth
Module, HX2 and HX3 use only one ring scanner or ring imager at a time.
The HX2 and HX3 are usually worn on the arm or at the waist.
The Bluetooth Ring Scanner module is compatible with any Honeywell mobile device that has a Microsoft® Windows® CE 5 or
later operating system and Bluetooth client capability.
Integrated Scanners and Integrated Imagers
Integrated scanners and integrated imagers are built-in to the mobile device and are usually located at the top of the device. The
scan engine cannot be accessed by the end-user. The MX8 will beep twice when a configuration bar code is successfully
scanned.
Devices with an integrated bar code reader can also:
• scan bar codes using a tethered bar code reader (connected to a cradle or a port on the mobile device).
• pair with and scan bar codes using the wireless Bluetooth Ring Scanner.
Tethered and Wireless Scanners
Tethered scanners (tethered to a serial port on the device or device's cradle) are configured by scanning the engine-specific bar
codes in the scanner manufacturer's programming guide. The manufacturer's guides are usually shipped with the bar code
reader.
Wireless Bluetooth scanners are configured by scanning the engine-specific bar codes in the Bluetooth scanner manufacturer's
programming guide. The manufacturer's guides are usually shipped with the wireless Bluetooth bar code reader.
Cautions and Warnings
It is good practice to avoid looking into the beam emitted by any scan beam aperture.
Do not connect the beam aperture to any other device, for example, a beam magnifier.
Class 2 laser scanners use a low power, visible light diode. As with any very bright light source, such as the sun, the user should
avoid staring directly into the light beam. Momentary exposure to a Class 2 laser is not known to be harmful.
1-1
Bar Code Readers
Your mobile device may be equipped with any of the following bar code readers:
• 1D Linear Imager, EV-15
• 2D Area Imager, 5300
• 2D Area Imager, 5380
• Short Range Laser Scanner, 955i
• Base Laser Scanner, 955E
• Multi-Range "LORAX" Laser, 1524ER
• Laser Scanner, N43XX
• Laser Scanner, N73XX
Note: Base Laser scanner, 955E does not support aim mode. Any attempt to adjust the aiming beam using the 955 bar codes
in this guide will fail. The Base Laser scanner does not decode Codablock, Code93i, or Telepen symbologies.
Programming bar codes for the bar code readers listed above are included in this guide.
The Mobile Device can also use the following bar code readers:
• Tethered hand-held scanners are tethered to a serial port on the Mobile Device and are configured by scanning the
engine-specific bar codes in the scanner manufacturer's programming guide. The manufacturer's guides are usually
shipped with the bar code reader.
• Wireless hand-held Bluetooth scanners are configured by scanning the engine-specific bar codes in the scanner
manufacturer's programming guide. The manufacturer's guides are usually shipped with the bar code reader.
• The body worn Bluetooth Ring Scanner module may be using a 4400 Ring Imager or a 955 Ring Scanner. The module
and rings are configured by scanning the bar codes in the Bluetooth Ring Scanner Programming Guide.
If your Mobile Device is using a bar code reader that is not included in this guide, please contact Technical Assistance (page 81) for the desired bar code reader availability or upgrade.

Return to Factory Default Settings
Important: After scanning the engine-specific bar code to return the scanner/imager to factory default settings, the next step is
to open the bar code wedge control panel on the mobile device collecting the scanned data. Click the OK button to close the
control panel. This action will synchronize all bar code reader formats for your device.

How To Scan a Bar Code
Note: The function to use an imager like a camera (or for OCR decoding) is not supported. Using a Continuous Scan option, if
available, to scan programming bar codes is not supported.
The linear bar codes in this guide were created using Code 128 symbology. Your Mobile Device has been set up by Honeywell
to automatically read / decode Code 128 bar codes.
Using the bar codes contained in this guide, you can change bar code reader system parameters or reset all parameters to their
factory default values.
All bar code reader parameters are programmed into and stored by the bar code reader engine.
Note: If this guide is not in print form, locate the page in this electronic guide that contains the bar code you wish to use. Print
the page on white paper using a 600dpi laser printer (or equivalent).
Note: Print the page containing the Reset and Cancel bar codes as well as the page containing the A – F and 0 – 9 number bar
codes.
Select the parameter you want to scan. If this guide is in print form,lay it flat on a table or propped up at an angle.
Scan a Linear Bar Code
Holding the beam aperture approximately 3 – 12 inches away from the bar code, aim the scan aperture toward the selected bar
code. Refer to the bar code reader engine type in Decode Zones later in this guide for recommended decode ranges.
Press the Scan button. Align the scan beam so that the bar code is centered within the beam. The beam must cross the entire
bar code. Move the bar code reader towards or away from the bar code so that the bar code takes up approximately two-thirds
the width of the beam.
Refer to the recommended decode zones for the installed bar code reader engine if you are having difficulty with this process.
Note: Do not position the scan aperture exactly perpendicular to the bar code being read. In this position, light can bounce back
into the scan aperture, and possibly prevent a successful decode.
Scan a 2D Bar Code
To scan a bar code with the imager, point the beam aperture at a bar code and press the Scan button. You will see a bracketed
cross-hair strike the bar code.
Holding the beam aperture approximately 3 – 12 inches away from the bar code, aim the imager aperture toward the selected
bar code. Press the Scan button and you will see a bracketed cross-hair strike the bar code.
Align the brackets so that the center (or one of the four corners of the bar code's center box) of the bar code is covered by the
cross-hair. Refer to bar code decoder engine Decode Zones later in this guide for recommended scan ranges for your device.
1-3
Good Read / Bad Read Indicators
The scan On indicator illuminates (usually red) when the beam is on. Following a bar code scan and “good read” the indicator
usually turns green and the mobile device beeps, indicating a successful scan. The mobile device may also play a WAV file
while decoding or the mobile device may vibrate.
The laser beam and scan On indicator automatically turn off after a successful or unsuccessful read and the bar code reader is
ready to scan again.
Note: Whether there are beeps in conjunction with scan and decode functions is dependent on the application currently running
in the mobile device. Beeps are emitted by the mobile device, not a tethered ring bar code reader.
Note: Decrease decode time by disabling unused bar code types. The scan engine can store several different bar code
symbologies at the same time. This means the system is able to scan a Code 39 bar code, then an Interleaved 2 of 5 bar
code, then a different bar code without requiring a parameter reset.
Reboot the mobile device to synchronize the new bar code reader engine parameters with the mobile device’s bar code wedge
settings.
Factors That May Impact Decode Performance
Successful decode range of a bar code decoder is dependent upon many outside influences including size of the bar code,
quality of the bar code printing, material the bar code is printed on, condition of the scan aperture lens (scratches) and angle of
the beam aperture relative to the bar code label. Any of these factors may result in having to re-scan the label from a different
distance or angle.
Bar Code Quality
Check the bar code for marks or physical damage e.g., ripped label, missing section, correct size for the bar code reader
being used, etc.
In general, the bigger the bar code the further the distance from which it can be read. If the bar code is smaller than the
specified size for the bar code reader being used, the distance, in almost all cases, will shrink.
Large bar codes can be read at the maximum distance. Hold the bar code reader closer to small bar codes (or with bars
that are very close together).
Note: Do not position the bar code reader exactly perpendicular to the bar code being scanned. In this position, light can
bounce back into the scan aperture, and possibly prevent a successful decode.
Bar Code Source
Using a graphics program to clip/copy a bar code from an online file (e.g., Adobe, Word) will copy the bar code at your
monitor's dot per inch setting, a level too low for successful bar code decoding.
Copy a Bar Code -- Use your browser's right-click menu to download an individual bar code using the Save Picture As
option. Save the picture to a location on your computer's hard drive. The individual bar code can be added, as a file, to any
delivery vehicle e.g., email, Word document.
Bar Code Symbology
Bar codes such as UPC codes and Code 128 are more complex than Code 39 and Interleaved 2 of 5. When attempting to
get the maximum read distance possible, particularly with reflective labels, use Code 39. The use of Code 128 or other
more complex symbologies will almost always result in a reduction in maximum read distance. Honeywell will not support
bar code reader maximum distances (from Decode Zones) when symbologies other than Code 39 are used.
Lens Damage
A scratched scan beam aperture can impact read rates and distances. Beam apertures should be inspected frequently,
particularly if bar code reading quality or distances get worse over time.
1-4
Ambient Lighting
High ambient conditions, particularly outdoor environments, will produce enough light to somewhat “blind” the bar code
reader. This will result in shorter read distances.
Temperature
While small deviations in room temperature will have no impact on bar code reader performance, severe conditions like
those found in freezers will have a negative impact on both the distance bar code readers can read and the speed the
decode is acquired.
Some bar code reader engines contain protection circuitry that shuts the bar code reader down in temperatures that
exceed the recommended operating temperature.
Bar Code Help
• Whether there are beeps in conjunction with scan and decode functions is dependent on the application currently running
in the Mobile Device.
• Decrease decode time by disabling unused bar code types. The bar code reader engine can store several different bar
code symbologies at the same time. This means the Mobile Device is able to decode a Code 39 bar code, then an
Interleaved 2 of 5 bar code, then a different bar code without requiring a parameter reset.
• The Mobile Device Scan Wedge (or Data Collection Wedge) panel parameters are applied to the data resulting from
successful bar code scans sent to the Mobile Device for processing. The Control Panel does not affect or change the
programming bar code parameter settings contained in this guide.
• After reading the Reset All (or equivalent) bar code with the Mobile Device’s integrated bar code reader engine or tethered
ring scanner, the next step is to open the Scan (or Data Collection Wedge) panel, click the OK button and then close the
panel. This action will synchronize all bar code reader formats.
Printing Bar Codes
Problem
Bar codes on the printed page are too compact to be read, especially with a long range scanner.
Solution - Printing Adobe Acrobat PDF File Pages
When printing pages from an Adobe Acrobat PDF file, there is a difference between laser printer types and how they handle
some Adobe Acrobat print functions – specifically, the “shrink to fit” option on the Print Options screen.
Before clicking Print, make sure the “Shrink oversized pages to paper size” checkbox is unchecked. If the bar code is still too
small to be read by the bar code reader engine, run the printed page through the laser printer again using the laser printer’s
Zoom feature until the bar code is large enough to scan satisfactorily.
When printing pages from an on-line Web page, run the printed page through a laser copier using the laser copier's Zoom
feature until the bar code is large enough to decode satisfactorily.
Solution - Printing from a Browser Page
Print a Page
Use the Print button on the Taskbar. Bar codes must be printed at 600 dots per inch (dpi) before they can be successfully
scanned with a bar code reader.
Miscellaneous Programmable Bar Codes
Note: Ring decoding devices do not have the ability to emit a good read or bad read sound.
Beep After Good Decode
Audible scan progress indicators are generated by the bar code reader driver on Honeywell mobile devices, not the bar
code reader engine. Use Windows Control Panel options to set up the mobile device audible indicators.
1-5
Beeper Frequency Adjustment
Audible scan progress indicators are generated by the bar code reader driver on Honeywell mobile devices, not the bar
code decoder engine. Use Windows Control Panel options to set up the mobile device audible indicators.
Beep on <BEL>
This parameter is enabled on the Bluetooth Ring Scanner Module. There is no corresponding ring scanner programming
bar code required.
This parameter is disabled/inactive on all other Honeywell mobile devices.
Beeper Tone / Beeper Volume
Audible scan progress indicators are generated by the bar code reader driver on Honeywell mobile devices, not the bar
code reader engine. Use Windows Control Panel options to set up the mobile device audible indicators.
Event Reporting
Honeywell mobile devices aren’t designed to process events triggered by a bar code reader engine. Events are processed
by the operating system resident on the mobile device. Use Windows Control Panel options to set up the mobile device
event reporting parameters.
LED Mode
This parameter is disabled/inactive as the scan LEDs are controlled by the bar code reader driver, not the bar code reader
engine.
Return to Factory Default Settings
Important: After scanning the engine-specific bar code to return the scanner/imager to factory default settings, the next step
is to open the bar code wedge panel on the mobile device collecting the scanned data. Click the OK button to close the
panel. This action will synchronize all bar code reader formats for your device.
Note: When the MX8 (CE 5 only) has an integrated bar code reader, the MX8 will be pre-loaded with either Scan Wedge
or Data Collection Wedge, not both.
Cleaning the Beam Aperture
Note: New devices -- Remove the shipping film from the beam aperture before first use.
Keep fingers and rough, sharp or abrasive objects away from the beam aperture.
If the aperture becomes soiled or smudged, clean only with a standard household cleaner such as Windex® without vinegar or
use Isopropyl Alcohol. Dampen the cloth with the cleaner; do not apply liquids directly to the aperture.
Do not use paper towels or harsh-chemical-based cleaning fluids since they may result in damage to the aperture surface.
Use a clean, damp, lint-free cloth. Do not scrub optical surfaces.
If possible, clean only those areas which are soiled.
Lint/particulates can be removed with clean, filtered canned air.

EV-15 Imager
Introduction
Integrated Imager Engine
MX7
MX8
This section’s explanations and instructions are directed toward devices with an integrated EV-15 Imager. Do not use the bar
codes in this section for other types of imagers or scan engines.
Configuration bar codes in this section are designed for the EV-15 scan engine. Determining the type of scan engine in your
decoding device is an important requirement before using it to scan a configuration bar code. If you are unsure, contact your
System Administrator for assistance with your mobile device.
Scan engine manufacturers may offer more bar codes and options than are contained in this section. Please note that the bar
codes in this section are only those supported by Honeywell on the mobile devices listed above.
Technical Assistance (page 8-1) is available if you need help when using the bar codes in this section.
An asterisk (*) next to an option indicates the default setting. The MX8 will beep twice when a configuration bar code is
successfully scanned.
Reset to Factory Defaults
After scanning the engine-specific bar code to return the imager to factory default settings, the next step is to open the bar code
wedge panel on the mobile device collecting the scanned data. Click the OK button to close the panel. This action will
synchronize all bar code decoder formats for your device.
Print a Page
Use the Print button on the browser Taskbar. These bar codes must be printed at 600 dots per inch (dpi) before they can be
successfully scanned by a bar code reader.
Reset to Factory Defaults using the LXEReset Bar Code
The LXEReset bar code should only be scanned by mobile devices running the Data Collection Wedge software.
This bar code must not be scanned by devices running the Bar Code Scan Wedge software.
The following function-specific bar code is only used when it is necessary to return the decoder engine back to factory default
values.
2-1
When the scan is successful, the mobile device emits a double beep and the Scan On indicator is amber. The decoding engine
is not available for further bar code scanning until the Scan On indicator turns off. Scanning this bar code does not affect the
mobile device’s operating system, wireless client or installed software (e.g., AppLock) settings.

This section's explanations and instructions are directed toward devices with an integrated (Hand Held Products) HHP 5300 2D
Imager. Do not use these decoding engine instructions for any other imager type or scan engine.
An asterisk (*) next to an option indicates the default setting.
This section is directed toward a mobile device with an integrated (Hand Held Products) HHP 5300 2D imager and contains
instructions that can be used to modify the HHP 5300 2D Imager scan engine configuration parameters, only.
MX8 CE 5
The configuration parameters are stored in the SCANCONFIG.INI file on the Mobile Device in the \System folder.
The value shown for each parameter in the Sample SCANCONFIG.INI file is the pre-configured default value.
After configuration changes are complete, save the modified SCANCONFIG.INI file and initiate a reboot in order for the new
settings to take effect.
Note: When the MX8 (CE 5 only) has an integrated bar code reader, the MX8 is pre-loaded with either Scan Wedge or Data
Collection Wedge, not both.
Mobile Device with a Windows Mobile operating system
Options set (in the past) with SCANCONFIG.INI file for a device with an installed HHP 5300 2D non-decoded imager, have been
replaced by the Advanced properties dialogs in the Data Collection Wedge (DCWedge) panel on the mobile device.
Data Collection Wedge Panel
Bar code enable/disable settings and Min/Max settings may appear to be duplicated in the SCANCONFIG.INI file and the
Mobile Device operating system Data Collection Wedge Panel.
Parameters set in the SCANCONFIG.INI file establish initial imager engine scan settings.
Then the settings in the Mobile Device Data Collection Wedge Panel manipulates the results of successful imager bar code
scans.
When the Mobile Device restarts, the imager parameter settings set in the SCANCONFIG.INI are applied, then the parameter
settings in the Data Collection Wedge Panel are applied.
Use the HHP Properties button on the Data Options tab and the Advanced button available on many of the individual
Symbology Settings screen to configure the (Hand Held Products) HHP Imager. There are no configuration bar codes for this
imager.
Reset to Factory Defaults using the LXEReset Bar Code
The LXEReset bar code should only be scanned by mobile devices running Data Collection Wedge software.
This bar code must not be scanned by devices running Bar Code Scan Wedge software.
3-1
The following function-specific bar code is only used when it is necessary to return the decoder engine back to factory default
values.
When the scan is successful, the mobile device emits a double beep and the Scan On indicator is amber. The decoding engine
is not available for further bar code scanning until the Scan On indicator turns off. Scanning this bar code does not affect the
mobile device’s operating system, wireless client or installed software (e.g., AppLock) settings.
Decoder
Note: These settings have no effect on laser scanner-equipped units or EV-15 imager equipped units.
DecodeMode
Default
1
Valid
1 = Normal mode
2 = Aggressive Linear Decode (ALD)
4 = Quick Omni
In Normal mode the imager will decode both linear and 2-D symbologies.
In Aggressive Linear Decode mode the imager will only read linear symbologies in this mode, but decoding these is faster
and more accurate than Normal Mode.
In Quick Omni mode the imager searches for a bar code in a reduced field located around the center of the image. Decoding is faster in this mode, but the user must center the aiming line over the bar code to be read. Both linear and 2-D symbologies can be read in this mode.
LinearRange
Default
3
Valid
1-6
1 specifies that the linear range that is searched for a readable label is a tight vertical range near the aimer.
6 specifies that the entire height of the image is to be searched.
LeaveLightsOn
Default
0
Valid
0 = Off, 1 = On
Specifies if the imager's lights and aimer should be left on during the entire decode process.
If Off, the lights are turned on only during image capture, then turned off while the imager attempts to process and decode
the bar code.
If On, the aimer and lights remain turned on during the entire process.
In Aggressive Linear Decode mode, set this parameter to 1 to improve the aimer visibility.
See DecodeMode on page 3-2

AimTimer
Duration of the imager aim beam in 0.1 second increments.
Default
0
Valid
0 = 50 (0 – 5 seconds)
If a value greater than 50 is entered, the aim duration is set to the maximum time of 5 seconds.
Centering
The centering feature is used to allow the user to accurately scan a selected bar code among a group of bar codes that are
located closely together. When centering is turned on, the imager will only decode bar codes that intersect the centering
window defined by the user. The centering window must intersect the center of the bar code.
The default centering settings define a 60 pixel square area in the center of the imager's field of view.
Default centering settings and allowable minimum and maximum settings are listed below.

Symbologies
For each symbology, the first parameter (parameter1) determines if the symbology is enabled (1 = enabled).
The remaining parameters through parameter n have various meanings for each symbology.
Minimum parameters with a range indicate the minimum value can begin at any number after the initial minimum number e.g., if
a parameter has a minimum length range between 0 and 200, the minimum range can be set to any number between the
minimum (0) and the maximum (200).
Note: Altering these settings has no effect on a mobile device equipped with a laser scanner.

Modulo 10 “0123456789”
Modulo 36 “0123456789ABC
DEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ”
Null-terminated string defines legal characters for
checksum calculation.
Calculate checksum characters as follows:
Modulo 10
1. Add the characters in the string (not including the checksum character).
2. Subtract 10 from the sum obtained above. Continue subtracting 10 until the remainder is less than 10.
The remainder obtained above is the checksum. Enter this digit in the checksum position.
Modulo 36
1. Add the characters in the string (not including the checksum character).
2. Subtract 36 from the sum obtained above. Continue subtracting 36 until the remainder is less than 36.
3. Subtract the remainder obtained above from 36. The value obtained is the checksum. Enter this character in the
checksum position.
Digit / Alpha values are defined as follows for modulo 36:
0 – 9 = 0 – 9; A = 10, B = 11, … Z = 25
Direction (Orientation) – this parameter is ignored

Orientation. Decoder reads OCR fonts in any orientation, but setting
this parameter correctly can increase decoding speed.
Example:
To read a combination of 6 alpha and numeric characters use the following template:
aaaaaa
Example:
To read the same string with a modulo 10 check digit in the 7th character position, use the following template:
aaaaaac
Then enter 0123456789 for parameter 6.
Example:
To read either a string of 6 alphabetic letters OR a string of 8 numeric digits, use this template:
lllllltdddddddd
Note the use of the “t” to separate the first template from the second.
Example:
To read multiple rows of OCR data as shown below:
123450
ABCDEF
Either of the following templates could be used:
ddddddrllllll or aaaaaaraaaaaa
Note the use of the “r” to define the position of the second row.

5380SF 2D Imager
Introduction
Integrated Imager Engine
MX7
This section's explanations and instructions are directed toward devices with an integrated (Hand Held Products) HHP 5380SF
2D Imager. Do not use these bar codes for any other imager type or scan engine.
Scan engine manufacturers may offer more bar codes and options than are contained in this section. Please note that the bar
codes in this section are only those supported by Honeywell.
See the device-specific Reference Guide for instruction when using the imager. There are many imager functions that are
controlled by Windows Panel settings e.g., beeper/volume/events, RS232 settings, read timers, etc.
An asterisk (*) next to an option indicates the default setting. Technical Assistance (page 8-1) is available if you need help when
using the bar codes in this section.
The bar codes contained in this section are to be used when programming the (Hand Held Products) HHP 5380SF decoded
imager engine.
5380SF 2D imager engine programming bar codes obtained from sources other than Honeywell cannot be supported.

Reset to Factory Defaults using the LXEReset Bar Code
The LXEReset bar code should only be scanned by mobile devices running Data Collection Wedge software.
This bar code must not be scanned by devices running Bar Code Scan Wedge software.
The following function-specific bar code is only used when it is necessary to return the decoder engine back to factory default
values.
When the scan is successful, the mobile device emits a double beep and the Scan On indicator is amber. The decoding engine
is not available for further bar code scanning until the Scan On indicator turns off. Scanning this bar code does not affect the
mobile device’s operating system, wireless client or installed software (e.g., AppLock) settings.
Pre-Configured 5380SF 2D Imager Default Values
The following values are set by Honeywell before the Mobile Device is shipped. The imager can be returned to factory defaults
by scanning the Reset to Factory Defaults (page 4-7) bar code.

Note: Improve decode speed by disabling unused bar code types.
Refer to a bar code type’s main section for the available programming bar codes for that symbology.
Note: All Postal Code symbologies default to “Off.” For best performance when reading a postal symbology, all other postal
symbologies should be disabled.
Imager Parameters – General
Except for the General imager attributes in this section that can be set by the end-user, imager programming attributes are set
using the Windows Scan Wedge panel resident on the Mobile Device.
Prefix / Suffix
Refer to the section titled “Scanner Control Panel” in the Mobile Device Reference Guide for information and instruction on
setting up the following imager parameters:
• Good/Bad Read indicators
• Serial Parameters
• Code ID: AIM, Symbol, Custom
• Symbology Settings including Prefix/Suffix
• Control Character Mapping
• Custom Identifiers
(Hand Held Products) HHP 5380SF 2D Imager prefix and suffix parameters cannot be set, changed, or reset using the bar
codes in this section.
Reset to Factory Defaults
Scan the Default Settings bar code below when you want to reset the imager to the original factory defaults. This action
resets the integrated imager settings. It does not affect the mobile device hardware or software settings.
Any imager parameter changes that had been made prior to resetting to factory defaults will need to be set again.
Note: All Postal Code symbologies default value is “Off.” For best performance when reading a postal symbology, all other
postal symbologies should be disabled.
See Reset to Factory Defaults using the LXEReset Bar Code on page 4-2.
4-7
Good Read Delay
Set the minimum amount of time before the imager can read another bar code by scanning one of the bar codes below and
then scanning the Save bar code in Save or Discard Settings (page 4-6). Default = No Delay
* No Delay
Short Delay (500 ms)
Medium Delay (1,000 ms)
Long Delay (1,500 ms)
User Specified Good Read Delay
If the bar codes available in section titled “Good Read Delay” are insufficient, you can set the amount of time before the
imager can read another bar code using the User-Specified Good Read Delay bar code below. Default = Range:
Minimum 0 milliseconds / Maximum 30,000 milliseconds.
Scan the User-Specified Good Read Delay bar code, then scan up to 5 digits in a row using the number symbols on
the Symbols 0 – 9 (page 4-83) page at the end of this section, then scan Save. If you make an error while scanning the
digits (before scanning Save), scan the Discard bar code scan the User-Specified Good Read Delay bar code, scan the
correct digits, and the Save bar code again.
4-8
Reread Delay
Scan one of the Reread Delay bar codes below to set the time period before the imager can read the same bar code a
second time.
Setting a reread delay may protect against accidental rereads of the same bar code. Use shorter delays in applications
where repetitive bar code scanning is required. Default = Medium (750 ms).
Scan the Save bar code in Save or Discard Settings (page 4-6) when you have finished setting the desired value.
Short (500 ms)
* Medium (750 ms)
Long (1000 ms)
Extra Long (2000 ms
User Specified Reread Delay
If the bar codes available in section titled Reread Delay are insufficient, you can set the amount of time before the imager
can read the same bar code using the User-Specified Reread Delay bar code. Default = Range: Minimum 0 ms /
Maximum 30,000 milliseconds.
Scan the User-Specified Reread Delay bar code below , then scan up to 5 digits in a row using the number symbols on
the Symbols 0 – 9 (page 4-83) page at the end of this section, then scan the Save bar code in Save or Discard
Settings (page 4-6). If you make an error while scanning the digits (before scanning Save), scan the Discard bar code, then
scan the User-Specified Reread Delay bar code, scan the correct digits, and then scan the Save bar code again.
4-9
LED Power Level
Scan one of the bar codes to set LED and aimer brightness. Default = LED Power Level High (100%)
•
•
•
•
Off is used when no illumination is needed.
Low is used if low illumination is sufficient.
High (the default) is the brightest setting.
Minimum is the minimum power setting with good read quality.
LED Power Level Low (50%)
* LED Power Level High (100%)
LED Power Level Off
LED Power Level Minimum (30%)
If you have an aimer delay programmed (See Aimer Delay on page 4-11), the aimer will be at 100% power during the delay,
regardless of the LED Power Level.
Note: When the imager LED Power Level is set to Off, both the aimer and illumination lights turn off, which may make it
difficult to scan bar codes in low light. Adjust the LED Power Level by first moving the mobile device to a brightly lit
area and then scan either the Low or the High bar code. Scan the Save bar code in Save or Discard Settings (page
4-6).
4 - 10
Aimer Delay
If the default aimer delay time is insufficient, scan one of the bar codes below to enable enough time to aim the imager at a
bar code before the LEDs turn on.
200 milliseconds
* Off (No delay)
400 milliseconds
During the delay time, the aiming light appears but the LEDs won’t turn on until the delay timer expires.
Scan the Save bar code in Save or Discard Settings (page 4-6).
User-Specified Aimer Delay
If the bar codes available in section titled “Aimer Delay” are insufficient, you can set the amount of time to use to aim
the imager at a bar code before the LEDs turn on. Default = Off (No Delay) / Range: Minimum 0 ms / Maximum 4,000
milliseconds
Scan the User-Specified Aimer Delay bar code below, then scan up to 4 digits in a row using the number symbols on
Symbols 0 – 9 (page 4-83) at the end of this section, then scan Save on the same page. If you make an error while
scanning the digits (before scanning Save), scan the Discard bar code, scan the User-Specified Aimer Delay bar
code, scan the correct digits, and then scan the Save bar code again.
4 - 11
Centering Scan Window
Use Centering to narrow the imager’s field of view to make sure the imager reads only those bar codes intended by the
user.
In the example below, the gray area is the full imager field of view and the white area is the centering window. Bar code 1
will not be read, while Bar code 2 will be.
The default centering window is a 128x96 pixel area (640x480 default image size) in the center of the imager’s field of view.
The following diagram illustrates the default top, bottom, left, and right pixel positions, measured from the top and the left
side of the imager’s field of view.
If a bar code is not within the predefined window, it will not be decoded or output by the imager.
4 - 12
If centering is enabled, the imager only reads codes that intersect the centering window specified by the user scanning the
Top, Bottom, Left, or Right bar codes that follow.
Centering On
* Centering Off
Scan Centering Off to turn the scan window centering option off. Scan the Save bar code in Save or Discard
Settings (page 4-6).
Scan Centering On, then scan one of the following bar codes to change the top, bottom, left, or right of the centering
window.
Note: The default percent value for Top and Left is 40%, the default percent value for Bottom and Right is 60%.
Top of Centering Window
Bottom of Centering Window
Left of Centering Window
Right of Centering Window
4 - 13
Scan the percent to be used to shift the centering window by scanning 2 digits in a row using the number symbols on
Symbols 0 – 9 (page 4-83) page at the end of this section, and scan Save on the same page. If you make an error while
scanning the digits (before scanning Save), scan the Discard bar code, scan the Centering On bar code, scan the top,
bottom, left or right bar codes, scan the correct digits, and then scan the Save bar code again.
Print Weight
Print Weight is used to adjust the way the imager reads Matrix 2 of 5 (page 4-32) symbols. If an imager will be seeing
consistently heavily printed Matrix symbols, then a print weight of 6 may improve the reading performance. For consistently
light printing, a print weight of 2 may help.
To set a different print weight value than the default of 4, begin by scanning the Set Print Weight bar code
Set Print Weight
* Default Print Weight 4
Next, scan numeric bar codes that correspond to the desired print weight value using the Save bar code in Save or Discard
Settings (page 4-6) at the end of this section. Single digit numbers must have a leading zero e.g., scan “0” and “3” to assign
the value of 3 to this option.
If you wish to change the print weight number selection, before scanning the Save bar code, scan the Discard bar code on
the Symbols 0-9 page. Scan the Save bar code on the same page when you have finished setting the desired print weight
numeric value.
4 - 14
Working Orientation
Some bar codes are direction sensitive. For example, Kix (Netherlands) Post (page 4-73) can misread when scanned
sideways or upside down.
Scan one of the orientation bar codes below, then scan the Save bar code in Save or Discard Settings (page 4-6).
* Upright
Upside Down
Rotate Clockwise 90°
Rotate Counterclockwise 90°
4 - 15
Intercharacter, Interfunction and Intermessage Delay
Some mobile devices drop information (characters) if data comes through too quickly. Intercharacter, interfunction, and
intermessage delays slow the transmission of data, increasing data integrity. Each delay is composed of a 5 millisecond
step. The imager can be programmed up to 99 steps (of 5 ms each) for a range between 0 and 495 ms.
Intercharacter Delay
Note: Intercharacter delays are not supported in USB serial emulation.
An intercharacter delay of up to 495 milliseconds may be placed between the transmission of each character of
scanned data. The imager can be programmed up to 99 steps (of 5 ms each) for a range between 0 and 495 ms.
Scan the Set an Intercharacter Delay bar code below, then set the steps by scanning up to 2 digits in a row using the
number symbols on Symbols 0 – 9 (page 4-83) at the end of this section, and scan Save.
If you make an error while scanning the digits (before scanning Save), scan the Discard bar code, scan the Set an
Intercharacter Delay bar code, scan the correct digits, and then scan the Save bar code again. Default = 0 ms / Range:
Min: 0 ms / Max: 495 ms..
To remove the delay, scan the Set an Intercharacter Delay bar code, then scan a zero using the number symbols on
Symbols 0 – 9 (page 4-83) at the end of this section, and scan Save.
User-Specified Intercharacter Delay
An intercharacter delay of up to 495 milliseconds (ms) may be placed after the transmission of a particular character of
scanned data. The imager can be programmed up to 99 steps (of 5 ms each) for a range between 0 and 495 ms.
Default = 0 ms / Range: Min: 0 ms / Max: 495 ms.
Scan the Delay Length bar code below, then set the steps by scanning up to 2 digits in a row using the symbols on
Symbols 0 – 9 (page 4-83) at the end of this section, and scan Save.
If you make an error while scanning the digits (before scanning Save), scan the Discard bar code, scan the Delay
Length bar code, scan the correct digits, and then scan the Save bar code again.
Next, scan the Character to Trigger Delay bar code below, then the 2-digit hex value for the ASCII character that will
trigger the delay. Two digit hex values are listed in the ASCII Conversion Chart (Code Page 1252) (page 4-84)at the
end of this section.
To remove an Intercharacter delay, scan the Delay Length bar code, then scan a zero using the number symbols on
Symbols 0 – 9 (page 4-83) at the end of this section, and scan Save.
4 - 16
Interfunction Delay
An interfunction delay of up to 495 milliseconds (ms) may be placed between the transmission of each segment of the
message string. The imager can be programmed up to 99 steps (of 5 ms each) for a range between 0 and 495 ms.
Default = 0 ms / Range: Min: 0 ms / Max: 495 ms.
Scan the Interfunction Delay bar code below, then set the steps by scanning up to 2 digits in a row using the symbols
on the Symbols 0 – 9 (page 4-83) at the end of this section, and scan Save.
If you make an error while scanning the digits (before scanning Save), scan the Discard bar code, scan the
Interfunction Delay bar code, scan the correct digits, and then scan the Save bar code again.
To remove an Interfunction delay, scan the Interfunction Delay bar code, then scan a zero using the number symbols
on the Symbols 0 – 9 (page 4-83) at the end of this section, and scan Save.
Intermessage Delay
An intermessage delay of up to 495 milliseconds (ms)may be placed between the transmission of each scan
transmission. The imager can be programmed up to 99 steps (of 5 ms each) for a range between 0 and 495 ms.
Default = 0 ms / Range: Min: 0 ms / Max: 495 ms.
Scan the Intermessage Delay bar code below, then set the steps by scanning up to 2 digits in a row using the symbols
on theSymbols 0 – 9 (page 4-83) at the end of this section, and scan Save.
If you make an error while scanning the digits (before scanning Save), scan the Discard bar code, scan the
Interfunction Delay bar code, scan the correct digits, and then scan the Save bar code again.
To remove an Intermessage delay, scan the Intermessage Delay bar code, then scan a zero using the number

Imager Parameters – Symbology Specific
All Symbologies On / Off
Scan the All Symbologies On bar code when you want the ability to decode all the symbologies available for the decoding
engine installed in the mobile device.
Scan the All Symbologies Off bar code when you want to select individual symbologies. Scan the specific symbology “On”
bar code for each symbology desired and again for each parameter setting desired.
Note: Scan the Save bar code in Save or Discard Settings (page 4-6) after each parameter change.
All Symbologies On
All Symbologies Off
Note: All Postal Code symbologies default to “Off.” For best performance when reading a postal symbology, all other postal
symbologies should be disabled.
Codabar
Scan the bar code below to set all Codabar parameters to their default value.
Scan the Save bar code in Save or Discard Settings (page 4-6) after any change.
Codabar Off
* Codabar On
4 - 18
Codabar Start/Stop Characters
Start/Stop characters identify the leading and trailing ends of the bar code. Scan the Save bar code in Save or Discard
Settings (page 4-6) after any change.
Transmit
* Don’t Transmi
Codabar Check Character
Scan the No Check Character bar code below to have the imager read and transmit bar code data with or without a
Modulo 16 check character.
Scan the Validate and Transmit bar code below to have the imager only read Codabar bar codes printed with a check
character, and will transmit this character at the end of the scanned data.
Scan the Validate, but Don't Transmit bar code below to have the imager only read Codabar bar codes printed with a
check character, and not transmit the check character with the scanned data.
4 - 19
Codabar Concatenation
When enabled, the imager strips start and stop characters (if they are the same) from two messages.
For example, two bar codes are scanned, one has a “D” character as a Start character. The other one has a “D” as a
Stop character. The two bar codes are concatenated into one bar code with the “D” characters omitted.
Scan the Require bar code below to prevent the imager from decoding a single “D” Codabar symbol without it’s
expected “D” companion. This setting has no effect on Codabar symbols without Stop/Start D characters.
* On

NX3XX Laser Scanner
Introduction
Integrated Laser Engine
MX7 Tecton
MX8
This section's explanations and instructions are directed toward devices with an integrated N43XX and N73XX Laser Scanner
engine. Please do not scan the bar codes in this section with any other bar code reader engine.
Configuration bar codes in this section are designed for the MX7 Tecton and the MX8. The MX7 Tecton may have a N43XX or
N73XX scan engine. The MX8 may have a N43XX scan engine.
Determining the type of scan engine in your decoding device is an important requirement before using it to scan a configuration
bar code. If you are unsure, contact your System Administrator for assistance with your mobile device.
Scan engine manufacturers may offer more bar codes and options than are contained in this section. Please note that the bar
codes in this section are only those supported by Honeywell on the mobile devices listed above. The MX8 will beep twice when
a configuration bar code is successfully scanned.
Technical Assistance (page 8-1) is available if you need help when using the bar codes in this section.
An asterisk (*) next to an option indicates the default setting.
To change a parameter value: Scan the appropriate bar code in this section. After the Save bar code is scanned (where
indicated), the new value replaces the standard default value in memory.
Identify the Scan Engine
1. Open the Data Collection application panel on the mobile device.
2. Select the About tab. The type of integrated scan engine in your device is shown in the Scanner segment.
3. If the scanner is listed as 4313-TTL (N43XX) or 7313-TTL (N73XX) use the bar codes in this chapter to configure the scan
engine.

Setting Custom Defaults
Bar Code Decoder Engine = N43XX and N73XX
You have the ability to create a set of menu commands as your own custom defaults. To do so, scan the Set Custom Defaults
bar code below before each menu command or sequence you want saved. If your command requires scanning numeric codes
then a Save code, that entire sequence will be saved to your custom defaults. Scan the Set Custom Defaults code again before
the next command you want saved to your custom defaults.
Set Custom Defaults
Save Custom Defaults
You may have a series of custom settings and want to correct a single setting. To do so, just scan the new setting to overwrite
the old one. For example, if you had previously saved the setting for Decode Security at Low to your custom defaults, and decide
you want the security set to High, just scan the Set Custom Defaults bar code, then scan the Decode Security High bar code,
and then Save Custom Defaults. The rest of the custom defaults will remain, but the security setting will be updated.
Resetting the Custom Defaults
If you want the custom default settings restored to your engine, scan the Activate Custom Defaults bar code below. This resets
the engine to the custom default settings. If there are no custom defaults, it will reset the engine to the factory default settings.
Any settings that have not been specified through the custom defaults will be defaulted to the factory default settings.
Activate Custom Defaults
5-5
Resetting the Factory Defaults
Bar Code Decoder Engine = N43XX and N73XX
Note: This selection erases your custom settings and resets the scanner to the factory default values set before shipping.
If you are not sure which programming options are in your bar code reader, or you have changed some options and want to
restore the reader to the original default settings, scan the Reset bar code below. If you have custom defaults, they are
eliminated when the Reset bar code is scanned. The Reset Factory Defaults bar code is only available when the Data Collection
Wedge is installed in the scanning device.
Pre-Configured Default Values (page 5-2) lists the factory default settings for each of the commands, indicated by an asterisk
(*), on the following bar code reader programming pages.
Note: If stripping, data matching, minimum length or symbologies are configured incorrectly in your saved custom defaults, the
incorrectly configured bar code is not decoded.
Reset Factory Defaults
RESET
When the scan is successful, the mobile device emits a double beep and the Scan On indicator is amber. The decoding engine
is not available for further bar code scanning until the Scan On indicator turns off. Scanning this bar code does not affect the
mobile device’s operating system, wireless client or installed software (e.g., AppLock) settings.
Scanner Parameters – General
Aimer Delay
Bar Code Decoder Engine = N43XX and N73XX
This sets the aiming dot time period length before the aim beam expands to read a bar code. Scan one of the bar codes
below to set Aimer Delay timeout. Open and close the Data Collection Wedge to save the Aimer Delay changed value.
Scan the Reset bar code on the Resetting the Factory Defaults (page 5-6) to set Aimer Delay back to default. Default = 0

Centering
Bar Code Decoder Engine = N43XX and N73XX
Use Centering to narrow the engine’s field of view to make sure the engine reads only those bar codes intended by the
user. For instance, if multiple codes are placed closely together, centering will insure that only the desired codes are read.
Scan Centering On, then scan one of the following bar codes to change the left or right of the centering window. To set the
percent you want to shift the centering window scan the digits on 0 - 9 (page 5-128) then scan Save on Save, Discard,
Reset (page 5-131). Default = 40% Left and 60% Right.

Communication Check Character
Bar Code Decoder Engine = N43XX and N73XX
To enhance security, you can specify the transmission type of a check character; either LRC where the calculation starts on
the first transmitted character, LRC where the calculation starts on the second transmitted character, or CRC.
Note: This option adds a check character to the bar code data for all symbologies. If you need to enable or disable check
characters for individual symbologies, seeScanner Parameters - Symbologies (page 5-20).
Scan the following bar code to set the communication check character type. Default = None.
* None

No Read
Bar Code Decoder Engine = N43XX and N73XX
With No Read turned On, the scanner notifies you if a code cannot be read. If using a WordPad window, an “NR” appears
when a code cannot be read. If No Read is turned Off, the “NR” will not appear. Default = Off.
The hex code for the No Read symbol is 9C.

Power Save Mode
Bar Code Decoder Engine = N43XX and N73XX
The scan engine has three Power Save Modes: Off, Sleep Mode, and Hibernate. In Off mode all components are powered
on and the scan engine is in operating mode. In Sleep Mode, some components are powered off. In Hibernate all
components are powered off.
Default = Hibernate.

Power Save Mode Timeout
Bar Code Decoder Engine = N43XX and N73XX
This allows you to set the length (in seconds) for power save timeout. To set the length scan the Power Save Timeout bar
code below, then set the timeout (from 0-65535 seconds) by scanning the digits on 0 - 9 (page 5-128) then scan Save on
Save, Discard, Reset (page 5-131). The scan engine goes into a power save mode (Sleep or Hibernate) at timeout after a
successful scan or at the end of the duration of inactivity.
Default = 1 second.

Prefix/Suffix Overview
Bar Code Decoder Engine = N43XX and N73XX
When a bar code is scanned, additional information is sent to the host computer along with the bar code data. This group of
bar code data and additional, user-defined data is called a “message string.” The selections in this section are used to build
the user-defined data into the message string.
Prefix and Suffix characters are data characters that can be sent before and after scanned data. You can specify if they
should be sent with all symbologies, or only with specific symbologies. The following illustration shows the breakdown of a
message string:
Prefix
Scanned Data
Suffix
1-11 alpha numeric and
control characters
variable length
1-11 alpha numeric and
control characters
Points to Keep In Mind
• It is not necessary to build a message string. The selections in this section are only used if you wish to alter the default
settings. Default prefix = None. Default suffix is dependent on interface.
• A prefix or suffix may be added or cleared from one symbology or all symbologies.
• You can add any prefix or suffix from the ASCII Conversion Chart (Code Page 1252) (page 5-115) plus Code I.D. and
AIM I.D.
• You can string together several entries for several symbologies at one time.
• Enter prefixes and suffixes in the order in which you want them to appear on the output.
• When setting up for specific symbologies (as opposed to all symbologies), the specific symbology ID value counts as an
added prefix or suffix character.
• The maximum size of a prefix or suffix configuration is 32 characters, which includes header information.
To Add a Prefix or Suffix
1. Scan the Add Prefix or Add Suffix symbol.
2. Determine the 2 digit Hex value from the Symbology Chart (page 5-118) for the symbology to which you want to
apply the prefix or suffix. For example, for Code 128, Code ID is “j” and Hex ID is “6A”.
3. Scan the 2 hex digits from the Programming Chart (page 5-128)or scan 9, 9 for all symbologies.
4. Determine the hex value from the ASCII Conversion Chart (Code Page 1252) (page 5-115) for the prefix or suffix
you wish to enter.
5. Scan the 2 digit hex value from the Programming Chart (page 5-128)
6. Repeat Steps 4 and 5 for every prefix or suffix character.
7. To add the Code I.D., scan 5, C, 8, 0. To add AIM I.D., scan 5, C, 8, 1. To add a backslash (\), scan 5, C, 5, C.
8. Scan Save to exit and save, or scan Discard to exit without saving.
Note: To add a backslash (\) as in Step 7, you must scan 5C twice – once to create the leading backslash and then to
create the backslash itself.
Repeat Steps 1-6 to add a prefix or suffix for another symbology.
5 - 14
Example:
Add a Suffix to a specific symbology
To send a CR (carriage return) Suffix for U.P.C. only:
1. Scan Add Suffix.
2. Determine the 2 digit hex value from the Symbology Chart (page 5-118)for U.P.C.
3. Scan 6, 3 from the Programming Chart (page 5-128).
4. Determine the hex value from the ASCII Conversion Chart (Code Page 1252) (page 5-115) for the CR (carriage
return).
5. Scan 0, D from the Programming Chart (page 5-128).
6. Scan Save, or scan Discard to exit without saving.
To Clear One or All Prefixes or Suffixes
You can clear a single prefix or suffix, or clear all prefixes/suffixes for a symbology. If you have been entering prefixes
and suffixes for single symbologies, you can use Clear One Prefix (Suffix) to delete a specific character from a
symbology. When you Clear All Prefixes (Suffixes), all the prefixes or suffixes for a symbology are deleted.
1. Scan the Clear One Prefix or Clear One Suffix symbol.
2. Determine the 2 digit Hex value from the Symbology Chart (page 5-118) for the symbology from which you want to
clear the prefix or suffix.
3. Scan the 2 digit hex value from the Programming Chart (page 5-128)or scan 9, 9 for all symbologies.
Your change is automatically saved.
To Add a Carriage Return Suffix to All Symbologies
Scan the following bar code if you wish to add a carriage return suffix to all symbologies at once. This action first clears
all current suffixes, then programs a carriage return suffix for all symbologies.
Add CR Suffix All Symbologies

Read Time-Out
Bar Code Decoder Engine = N43XX and N73XX
Use this selection to set a time-out (in milliseconds) of the engine’s external trigger when using serial commands to trigger
the scanner. Once the engine has timed out, you can activate the engine either by the external trigger or using a serial
trigger command. After scanning the Read Time-Out bar code, set the time-out duration (from 0-300,000 milliseconds) by
scanning digits on 0 - 9 (page 5-128) then scan Save on Save, Discard, Reset (page 5-131). Default = 3,000 ms.
Read Time-Out
5 - 17
Reread Delay
Bar Code Decoder Engine = N43XX and N73XX
This sets the time period before the scanner can read the same bar code a second time. Setting a reread delay protects
against accidental rereads of the same bar code. Longer delays are effective in minimizing accidental rereads. Use shorter
delays in applications where repetitive bar code scanning is required. Default = Medium.

Scanner Parameters - Symbologies
All Symbologies
Bar Code Decoder Engine = N43XX and N73XX
If you want to decode all the symbologies allowable for your scanner, scan the All Symbologies On code. If on the other
hand, you want to decode only a particular symbology, scan All Symbologies Off followed by the On symbol for that
particular symbology.
All Symbologies On
All Symbologies Off
Message Length Description
Bar Code Decoder Engine = N43XX and N73XX
You are able to set the valid reading length of some of the bar code symbologies. If the data length of the scanned bar code
doesn’t match the valid reading length, the scanner will issue an error tone. You may wish to set the same value for
minimum and maximum length to force the scanner to read fixed length bar code data. This helps reduce the chances of a
misread.
Example: Decode only those bar codes with a count of 9-20 characters.
Min. length = 09
Max. length = 20
Example: Decode only those bar codes with a count of 15 characters.
Min. length = 15
Max. length = 15
For a value other than the minimum and maximum message length defaults, scan the bar codes included in the explanation
of the symbology, then scan the digit value of the message length and then scan digits on the 0 - 9 (page 5-128) then scan
Save on Save, Discard, Reset (page 5-131). The minimum and maximum lengths and the defaults are included with the
respective symbologies.

5 - 21
Codabar Check Character
Codabar check characters are created using different “modulos.” You can program the scanner to read only Codabar
bar codes with Modulo 16, Modulo 7 CD, or CLSI check characters. Default = No Check Character.
No Check Character indicates that the scanner reads and transmits bar code data with or without a check character.
When Check Character is set to Validate and Transmit, the scanner will only read Codabar bar codes printed with a
check character, and will transmit this character at the end of the scanned data.
When Check Character is set to Validate, but Don’t Transmit, the unit will only read Codabar bar codes printed with
a check character, but will not transmit the check character with the scanned data.
* No Check Character

Codabar Concatenation
Codabar supports symbol concatenation. When you enable concatenation, the scanner looks for a Codabar symbol
having a “D” start character, adjacent to a symbol having a “D” stop character. In this case the two messages are
concatenated into one with the “D” characters omitted.
Select Require to prevent the scanner from decoding a single “D” Codabar symbol without its companion. This
selection has no effect on Codabar symbols without Stop/Start D characters.

Concatenation Timeout
When searching for bar codes during concatenation, you may wish to set a delay used to find the next bar code. Set
the length (in milliseconds) for this delay by scanning the following bar code, then setting the timeout (from 1-65535
milliseconds) by scanning digits on 0 - 9 (page 5-128) then scan Save on Save, Discard, Reset (page 5-131). Default =
750.
Concatenation Timeout
Codabar Redundancy
If you are encountering errors when reading Codabar bar codes, you may want to adjust the redundancy count.
Redundancy adjusts the number of times a bar code is decoded before transmission, which may reduce the number of
errors. Note that the higher the redundancy count, the longer it will take to decode the bar code. To adjust the
redundancy, scan the following Codabar Redundancy bar code, then scan a redundancy count between 0 and 10 on
0 - 9 (page 5-128) then scan Save on Save, Discard, Reset (page 5-131). Default = 0.
Codabar Redundancy
Codabar Message Length
Scan the following bar codes to change the message length. Refer to Message Length Description (page 5-20) for
additional information. Minimum and Maximum lengths = 1-80. Minimum Default = 3, Maximum Default = 80.

Data Formatting
Bar Code Decoder Engine = N43XX and N73XX
Data Format Editor Introduction
You may use the Data Format Editor to change the scanner’s output. For example, you can use the Data Format Editor to
insert characters at certain points in bar code data as it is scanned. The selections in the following pages are used only if
you wish to alter the output. Default Data Format setting = None.
Normally, when you scan a bar code, it gets outputted automatically; however when you create a format, you must use a
“send” command , see Send Commands (page 5-108), within the format program to output data.
Multiple formats may be programmed into the scanner. They are stacked in the order in which they are entered. However,
the following list presents the order in which formats are applied:
1. Specific Terminal ID, Actual Code ID, Actual Length
2. Specific Terminal ID, Actual Code ID, Universal Length
3. Specific Terminal ID, Universal Code ID, Actual Length
4. Specific Terminal ID, Universal Code ID, Universal Length
5. Universal Terminal ID, Actual Code ID, Actual Length
6. Universal Terminal ID, Actual Code ID, Universal Length
7. Universal Terminal ID, Universal Code ID, Actual Length
8. Universal Terminal ID, Universal Code ID, Universal Length
The maximum size of a data format configuration is 256 bytes, which includes header information. No format can contain
more than 50 bytes.
If you have changed data format settings, and wish to clear all formats and return to the factory defaults, scan the following
Default Data Format code.
To Add a Data Format
Step 1. Scan the Enter Data Format symbol (below).
Step 2. Select Primary/Alternate Format
Determine if this will be your primary data format, or one of 3 alternate formats. This allows you to save a total of 4
different data formats. To program your primary format, scan 0 on 0 - 9 (page 5-128) . If you are programming an
alternate format, scan 1, 2, or 3, depending on which alternate format you are programming. See Primary/Alternate
Data Formats (page 5-113) for further information.)
Step 3. Terminal Type
Refer to Terminal ID Table (page 5-107) and locate the Terminal ID number for your PC. Scan three numeric bar
codes on 0 - 9 (page 5-128) to program the scanner for your terminal ID (you must enter 3 digits). For example, scan
0 0 3 for an AT wedge.
Note: The wildcard for all terminal types is 099.
Step 4. Code I.D.
In the Symbology Chart (page 5-118) find the symbology to which you want to apply the data format. Locate the Hex
value for that symbology and scan the 2 digit hex value from the Programming Chart (page 5-128).
Step 5. Length
Specify what length (up to 9999 characters) of data will be acceptable for this symbology. Scan the four digit data
5 - 104
length from the Programming Chart (page 5-128).
Note: 50 characters is entered as 0050. 9999 is a universal number, indicating all lengths.
Step 6. Editor Commands
Refer to Terminal ID Table (page 5-107). Scan the symbols that represent the command you want to enter. 94
alphanumeric characters may be entered for each symbology data format.
Step 7. Scan Save to save your data format, or Discard to exit without saving your changes.

Other Programming Selections
Clear One Data Format
This deletes one data format for one symbology. If you are clearing the primary format, scan 0 from the 0 - 9 (page 5128). If you are clearing an alternate format, scan 1, 2, or 3, depending on the format you are clearing. Scan the
Terminal Type and Code ID, See Symbology Chart (page 5-118), and the bar code data length for the specific data
format that you want to delete. All other formats remain unaffected.

Refer to the ASCII Conversion Chart (Code Page 1252) (page 5-115) for decimal, hex and character codes.
Search backward for a non-matching character
E7 Search the input message backward for the first non-“xx” character from the current cursor position, leaving the
cursor pointing to the non- “xx” character. Syntax = E7xx where xx stands for the search character’s hex value for
its ASCII code.
Refer to the ASCII Conversion Chart (Code Page 1252) (page 5-115) for decimal, hex and character codes.
Miscellaneous Commands
Suppress characters
FB Suppress all occurrences of up to 15 different characters, starting at the current cursor position, as the cursor is
advanced by other commands. When the FC command is encountered, the suppress function is terminated. The
cursor is not moved by the FB command. Syntax = FBnnxxyy . .zz where nn is a count of the number of suppressed
characters in the list, and xxyy .. zz is the list of characters to be suppressed.
Stop suppressing characters
FC Disables suppress filter and clear all suppressed characters. Syntax = FC.
Replace characters
E4 Replaces up to 15 characters in the output message, without moving the cursor. Replacement continues until the
E5 command is encountered. Syntax = E4nnxx1xx2yy1yy2...zz1zz2 where nn is the total count of the number of
characters in the list (characters to be replaced plus replacement characters); xx1 defines characters to be replaced
and xx2 defines replacement characters, continuing through zz1 and zz2.
Stop replacing characters
E5 Terminates character replacement. Syntax = E5.
5 - 109
Compare characters
FE Compare the character in the current cursor position to the character “xx.” If characters are equal, move the cursor
forward one position. Syntax = FExx where xx stands for the comparison character’s hex value for its ASCII code.
Refer to the ASCII Conversion Chart (Code Page 1252) (page 5-115) for decimal, hex and character codes.
Compare string
B2 Compare the string in the input message to the string “s.” If the strings are equal, move the cursor forward past the
end of the string. Syntax = B2nnnnS where nnnn is the string length (up to 9999), and S consists of the ASCII hex
value of each character in the match string. For example, B2000454657374 will compare the string at the current
cursor position with the 4 character string “Test.”
Refer to the ASCII Conversion Chart (Code Page 1252) (page 5-115) for decimal, hex and character codes.
Check for a number
EC Check to make sure there is an ASCII number at the current cursor position. The format is aborted if the character
is not numeric.
Check for non-numeric character
ED Check to make sure there is a non-numeric ASCII character at the current cursor position. The format is aborted if
the character is numeric.
Insert a delay
EF Inserts a delay of up to 49,995 milliseconds (in multiples of 5), starting from the current cursor position. Syntax =
EFnnnn where nnnn stands for the delay in 5ms increments, up to 9999. This command can only be used with
keyboard wedge interfaces.
5 - 110
Data Formatter
When Data Formatter is turned Off, the bar code data is output to the host as read, including prefixes and suffixes.
Data Formatter Off
You may wish to require the data to conform to a data format you have created and saved. The following settings can be
applied to your data format:
Data Formatter On, Not Required, Keep Prefix/Suffix
Scanned data is modified according to your data format, and prefixes and suffixes are transmitted.
Data Formatter On, Not Required, Drop Prefix/Suffix
Scanned data is modified according to your data format. If a data format is found for a particular symbol, those prefixes
and suffixes are not transmitted.
Data Format Required, Keep Prefix/Suffix
Scanned data is modified according to your data format, and prefixes and suffixes are transmitted. Any data that does
not match your data format requirements generates an error tone and the data in that bar code is not transmitted. If
you wish to process this type of bar code without generating an error tone, see Data Format Non-Match Error
Tone (page 5-112).
Data Format Required, Drop Prefix/Suffix
Scanned data is modified according to your data format. If a data format is found for a particular symbol, those prefixes
and suffixes are not transmitted. Any data that does not match your data format requirements generates an error tone.
If you wish to process this type of bar code without generating an error tone, see Data Format Non-Match Error
Tone (page 5-112).
Choose one of the following options. Default = Data Formatter On, Not Required, Keep Prefix/Suffix.
* Data Formatter On, Not Required, Keep Prefix/
Suffix
Data Formatter On, Not Required, Drop Prefix/
Suffix
5 - 111
Data Format Required, Keep Prefix/Suffix
Data Format Required, Drop Prefix/Suffix
Data Format Non-Match Error Tone
When a bar code is encountered that doesn’t match your required data format, the scanner normally generates an
error tone. However, you may want to continue scanning bar codes without hearing the error tone. If you scan the Data
Format Non-Match Error Tone Off bar code, data that doesn’t conform to your data format is not transmitted, and no
error tone will sound. If you wish to hear the error tone when a non-matching bar code is found, scan the Data Format
Non-Match Error Tone On bar code. Default = Data Format Non-Match Error Tone On.
* Data Format Non-Match Error Tone On
Data Format Non-Match Error Tone Off
5 - 112
Primary/Alternate Data Formats
You can save up to four data formats, and switch between these formats. Your primary data format is saved under 0. Your
other three formats are saved under 1, 2, and 3. To set your device to use one of these formats, scan one of the following
bar codes.
Primary Data Format
Data Format 1
Data Format 2
Data Format 3
5 - 113
Single Scan Data Format Change
You can also switch between data formats for a single scan. The next bar code is scanned using an alternate data
format, then reverts to the format you have selected above (either Primary, 1, 2, or 3).
For example, you may have set your device to the data format you saved as Data Format 3. You can switch to Data
Format 1 for a single button press by scanning the following Single Scan-Data Format 1 bar code. The next bar code
that is scanned uses Data Format 1, then reverts back to Data Format 3.
Single Scan-Primary Data Format
Single Scan-Data Format 1
Single Scan-Data Format 2

This section's explanations and instructions are directed toward devices with an integrated Symbol SE955 or SE1524SE Laser
Scanner engine. Please do not scan the bar codes in this section with any other bar code reader engine.
Scan engine manufacturers may offer more bar codes and options than are contained in this section. Please note that the bar
codes in this section are only those supported by Honeywell and the mobile devices it manufactures or supports. If you need
assistance when using the bar codes in this section with your Mobile Device, please contact Technical Assistance (page 8-1).
The MX8 will beep twice when a configuration bar code is successfully scanned.
An asterisk (*) next to an option indicates the default setting.
Bar Code Decoder Types
Bar code decoder engine types (for Honeywell equipment) covered in this section are:
• SE 955 1 Integrated
• SE 1524ER 2 Integrated
To change a parameter value: Scan the appropriate bar code in this section. After Save, the new value replaces the
standard default value in memory.
The following bar code symbologies are supported:

Aiming Modes
There are many aiming “modes” for laser bar code readers – aiming dots, aiming patterns, aim duration, etc. All aiming “modes”
concern the length of time the beam is sent out, how wide the beam is and what happens when the timer expires. The terms are
used interchangeably and may be confusing for the novice bar code reader user.
Note: Decoding algorithms released by the bar code engine manufacturer often change upon each new release. Programming
parameters that were available at one release may not be available upon a later software release. Honeywell supports
the programming bar codes for the specific bar code reader engines in this guide only.
SE1524 Scan Engine
The SE1524 Standard scanners can have their aiming beam/aiming dot setup using these bar codes:
• Laser On Time (page 6-20) and
• Aim Duration (page 6-13)
SE955 Scan Engine
The scan engine can have it's aiming beam/aiming dot setup using these bar codes:
• Use Laser On Time (page 6-20)
• Aim Duration (page 6-13), and
• Scan Angle (SE955 only) (page 6-34)
Note: Base Laser scanner, 955E does not support aim mode. Any attempt to adjust the aiming beam using the 955 bar
codes in this guide will fail. The Base Laser scanner does not decode Codablock, Code93i, or Telepen symbologies.
Aiming Dot
How to get an aiming dot when there is no “Aiming Dot” parameter
Set Aim Duration to .5 seconds and an aiming “dot” is sent while the scan trigger is held down. When the timer expires, the
aiming beam widens and the bar code is read.

When all parameters are reset to the default values, you must again set the Laser On Time (page 6-20) parameter to 1.5
seconds to match a device-specific default Max On Timer default value of 1.5 seconds.
Laser On Time default value is 3.0 seconds.
Reset to Factory Defaults using the LXEReset Bar Code
The LXEReset bar code should only be scanned by mobile devices running Data Collection Wedge software.
This bar code must not be scanned by devices running Bar Code Scan Wedge software.
The following function-specific bar code is only used when it is necessary to return the decoder engine back to factory default
values.
When the scan is successful, the mobile device emits a double beep and the Scan On indicator is amber. The decoding engine
is not available for further bar code scanning until the Scan On indicator turns off. Scanning this bar code does not affect the
mobile device’s operating system, wireless client or installed software (e.g., AppLock) settings.

Scanner Parameters – General
Aim Duration
Bar Code Decoder Engine = SE1524 and SE955
Note: For correct operation, reboot the mobile device after changing this value.
When a bar code reader with an aim mode is triggered either by a Scan button press, or a Start_Decode command, this
parameter sets the duration the aiming pattern is seen before a scan attempt begins. It does not apply to the aim signal or
the Aim_On command. It is programmable in 0.1 second increments from 0.0 to 9.9 seconds. No aim pattern is visible
when the value is 0.0.
To set aim duration, scan the bar code below:
Next scan two numeric bar codes that correspond to the desired aim duration. Times less than 1.0 second must have a
leading zero. For example, to set an aim duration of 0.5 seconds, scan the bar code above, then scan the “0” and “5” bar
codes on the Keypad Number Symbols (page 6-91) page. If you make an error, or wish to change your selection, scan the
Cancel bar code on the Keypad Number Symbols page.
Note: Base Laser scanner, 955E does not support aim mode. Any attempt to adjust the aiming beam using the 955 bar
codes in this guide will fail. The Base Laser scanner does not decode Codablock, Code93i, or Telepen symbologies.

This parameter selects whether decoded data is transmitted in raw format (unpacketed), or transmitted with the packet
format as defined by the serial protocol.
If the raw format is chosen, ACK/NAK handshaking is automatically disabled for decode data.
Set this parameter by scanning either of the following bar codes.
Send Raw Decode Data
* Send Packeted Decode Data
The SSI Options bar codes are directed toward the host programmer when writing host/bar code reader interface
programs for different hosts. For help seeTechnical Assistance (page 8-1).
Host Character Time-out
Bar Code Decoder Engine = SE1524 and SE955
This parameter determines the maximum time the decoder waits between characters transmitted by the host before
discarding the received data and declaring an error. The time-out is set in 0.01 second increments from 0.01 seconds
to 0.99 seconds. After scanning the bar code below, scan two numerical bar codes to set the desired time-out. Default
= 200 msec.
To begin setting the time-out value, scan this bar code:
Next, scan two numeric bar codes that correspond to the desired value using the Keypad Number Symbols (page 691) at the end of this section. Single digit numbers must have a leading zero. For example, a value of 300 msec is
selected by scanning the “3” and the “0” numeric bar codes. A value of 30 msec is selected by scanning the “0” and the
“3” bar codes.
If you wish to change your selection, scan Cancel on the Keypad Number Symbols page.
The SSI Options bar codes are directed toward the host programmer when writing host/bar code reader interface
programs for different hosts. For help seeTechnical Assistance (page 8-1).
6 - 26
Host Serial Response Time-out
Bar Code Decoder Engine = SE1524 and SE955
This parameter determines the maximum time the decoder waits for an ACK or NAK before resending. Also, if the
decoder wants to send, and the host has already been granted permission to send, the decoder waits for the
designated time-out before declaring an error. The delay period can range from 0.0 to 9.9 seconds in 0.1 second
increments. After scanning the bar code below, scan two numerical bar codes to set the delay. Default = 2 seconds.
To begin setting the time-out value, scan this bar code:
Next, scan two numeric bar codes that correspond to the desired value using the Keypad Number Symbols (page 691) at the end of this section. Time durations of less than 1.0 second require a leading zero. For example, a value of
4.5 seconds is selected by scanning the “4” and the “5” numeric bar codes. A value of 0.3 seconds is selected by
scanning the “0” and the “3” bar codes.
If you wish to change your selection, scan Cancel on the Keypad Number Symbols page.
The SSI Options bar codes are directed toward the host programmer when writing host/bar code reader interface
programs for different hosts. For help seeTechnical Assistance (page 8-1).
Intercharacter Delay
Bar Code Decoder Engine = SE1524 and SE955
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 numerical bar codes to set the delay. Default = 0 msec.
To begin setting the delay value, scan this bar code:
Next, scan two numeric bar codes that correspond to the desired value using the Keypad Number Symbols (page 691) at the end of this section. Time durations of less than 1 msec require a leading zero. For example, a value of 25
msec is selected by scanning the “2” and the “5” numeric bar codes. A value of 6 msec is selected by scanning the “0”
and the “6” bar codes.
If you wish to change your selection, scan Cancel on the Keypad Number Symbols page.

Software Handshaking
Bar Code Decoder Engine = SE1524 and SE955
The SSI Options bar codes are directed toward the host programmer when writing host/bar code reader interface
programs for different hosts. For help seeTechnical Assistance (page 8-1).
Default = Enable
This parameter offers control of the data transmission process in addition to that offered by hardware handshaking.
Hardware handshaking is always enabled and cannot be disabled by the user.
Scan one of the following bar codes to set software handshaking.
Disable ACK/NAK Handshaking
When this option is selected, the decoder will neither generate nor expect ACK/NAK handshaking packets.
Enable ACK/NAK Handshaking
When this option is selected, after transmitting data, the bar code reader expects either an ACK or NAK response
from the host. The bar code reader will also ACK or NAK messages from the host when this option is selected.
The bar code reader waits up to the programmable Host Serial Response Time-out (page 6-27) to receive an ACK
or NAK. If the bar code reader does not get a response in this time, it resends its data up to two times before
discarding the data and declaring a transmit error.
6 - 29
Stop Bit Select
Bar Code Decoder Engine = SE1524 and SE955
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 computer is programmed to
accommodate. Set the number of stop bits to match host device requirements.
Set this parameter by scanning one of the following bar codes.
* One Stop Bit
Two Stop Bits
The SSI Options bar codes are directed toward the host programmer when writing host/bar code reader interface
programs for different hosts. For help seeTechnical Assistance (page 8-1).
Time-out Between Decodes, Same Symbol
Bar Code Decoder Engine = SE1524 and SE955
Use this parameter to prevent the beeper from continuously beeping when a symbol is left in the bar code reader's field of
view. Default = 1.0 Second.
To begin setting differing symbol timeout values, scan this bar code:
Using the Keypad Number Symbols (page 6-91) at the end of this section, scan two numeric bar codes that represent the
desired interval, in 0.1 second increments. Valid values are between 0.0 and 9.9 seconds. Single digit values must be
predefined by a leading zero. For example, to set a timeout of 0.5 seconds, scan the Timeout/Decodes – Same bar code,
then scan the number 0 and 5 bar codes.

Set this parameter by scanning either of the bar codes shown below.
* Enable GS1-128
Disable GS1-128
GS1-128 is a convention for printing data fields with standard Code 128 bar code symbols. GS1-128 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 GS1-128 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 GS1-128 symbol with a leading FNC1 character.
6 - 44
Standard Code 128 bar codes which do not have a leading FNC 1 may still be used, but are not encoded according to
the GS1-128 convention. Standard Code 128 and GS1-128 may be mixed in an application. The SE955
autodiscriminates between these symbols, and can enable or disable one or both code types.
The following table indicates the behavior of the SE955 in each of the four possible parameter settings.

Set Lengths for MSI Plessey
Bar Code Decoder Engine = SE1524 and SE955
Lengths for MSI Plessey may be set for:
• any length,
• one or two discrete lengths,
• or lengths within a specific range.
The length of a code refers to the number of characters, including check digits, the code contains.
See ASCII Character Equivalents on page 6-83.
One Discrete Length (Parameter L1)
This option decodes only those codes containing a selected length. For example, when you want to scan only MSI
Plessey symbols containing 14 characters, scan the “MSI Plessey One Discrete Length” bar code and then “1”
and “4” bar codes using the Keypad Number Symbols (page 6-91). Default = 6.
To begin setting one discrete length, scan this bar code:
Next, scan two numeric bar codes that correspond to the desired value. Single digit numbers must have a leading
zero. If you wish to change your number selection, scan Cancel on the Keypad Number Symbols page.
6 - 64
Two Discrete Lengths (Parameter L2)
This option decodes only those codes containing two selected lengths. For example, when you want to scan only
MSI Plessey symbols containing 2 or 14 characters, scan the “MSI Plessey Two Discrete Lengths” bar code and
then “0”, “2”, “1” and “4” bar codes using the Keypad Number Symbols (page 6-91). Default = 55.
To begin setting two discrete lengths, scan this bar code:
Next, scan four numeric bar codes that correspond to the desired value. Single digit numbers must have a leading
zero. If you wish to change your number selection, scan Cancel on the Keypad Number Symbols page.

UPC/EAN Security Level
Bar Code Decoder Engine = SE1524 and SE955
Use this parameter to determine the security level appropriate for UPC/EAN bar code quality. There is an inverse
relationship between security and bar code reader aggressiveness, so be sure to choose only that level of security
necessary for any given application.
There are four decode security levels. Higher security levels are selected for decreasing levels of bar code quality. As
security levels increase, the bar code reader aggressiveness decreases.
Security Level 0
The default setting.
Allows the bar code reader to operate in its most aggressive state, while providing sufficient security in decoding
"in-spec" UPC/EAN bar codes.
Security Level 1
Misdecode 1,2,7,8
As bar code quality levels diminish, certain characters become prone to misdecodes before others (i.e., 1, 2, 7, 8).
Select this level upon misdecodes of poorly printed labels that are limited to 1, 2, 7 and 8.
Security Level 2
Misdecodes not 1,2,7,8
Select this security level upon experiencing misdecodes of poorly printed bar codes and the misdecodes are not
limited to characters 1,2,7 and 8.
Security Level 3
Select this security level if you have tried security level 2 and are still experiencing misdecodes.
Using this level is an extreme measure against misdecoding severely out of spec bar codes. This level significantly
impairs the decoding ability of the bar code reader. If this level of security is necessary, you should try to improve
the quality of your bar codes.
Select an option by scanning one of the bar codes shown below. If you wish to change your selection, scan Cancel on
the Keypad Number Symbols (page 6-91) .

Appendix
This appendix contains information that is superseded by newer information.
It contains programming bar codes for Symbol SE955 scan engines only.
Laser On Time (superseded)
Bar Code Decoder Engine = SE955
For correct operation, reboot the Mobile Device after changing this value.
Note: The bar code on this page has been replaced with a newer bar code. See Laser On Time on page 6-20.
This parameter sets the maximum time decode processing continues during a scan attempt. It is programmable in 0.1
second increments from 0.5 to 9.9 seconds. If a label has not been decoded before this time expires and the session is
terminated, the system regards it as a failed scan attempt.
To begin setting Laser On Time, scan this bar code:
Next, scan two numeric bar codes that correspond to the desired on time using the Keypad Number Symbols at the end of
this section. Times less than 1.0 second must have a leading zero. Default = 3.0 seconds.
If you wish to change your number selection, scan Cancel on the Keypad Number Symbols (page 6-91).
Note: Base Laser scanner, 955E does not support aim mode. Any attempt to adjust the aiming beam using the 955 bar
codes in this guide will fail. The Base Laser scanner does not decode Codablock, Code93i, or Telepen symbologies.
6 - 87
Scan Angle (SE955 only) superseded)
Bar Code Decoder Engine = SE955
Note: The bar code on this page has been replaced with a newer bar code. See Scan Angle (SE955 only) on page 6-34.
Choose one of the options below to set the scan angle to narrow or wide. Once the parameter bar code is scanned, the
Scan Angle setting is persistently stored.
Select an option by scanning one of the bar codes shown below.
Narrow Angle (35°)
* Wide Angle
Note: Base Laser scanner, 955E does not support aim mode. Any attempt to adjust the aiming beam using the 955 bar

Note: The bar codes on this page have been replaced with newer bar codes. See Set Lengths for I 2 of 5 on page 6-61.
Lengths for I 2 of 5 may be set for:
• any length,
• one or two discrete lengths,
• or lengths within a specific range.
The length of a code refers to the number of characters, including check digits, the code contains.
See ASCII Character Equivalents on page 6-83.
One Discrete Length (Parameter L1)
This option decodes only those codes containing a selected length. For example, when you want to scan only I 2 of 5
symbols containing 14 characters, scan the “I 2 of 5 One Discrete Length” bar code and then the “1” and “4” bar codes
using the Keypad Number Symbols (page 6-91). Default = 14.
To begin setting one discrete length, scan this “I 2 of 5 One Discrete Length” bar code:
Next, scan two numeric bar codes that correspond to the desired value. Single digit numbers must have a leading zero.
If you wish to change your number selection, scan Cancel on the Keypad Number Symbols page.
Two Discrete Lengths (Parameter L2)
This option decodes only those codes containing two selected lengths. For example, when you want to scan only I 2 of
5 symbols containing 2 or 14 characters, scan the “I 2 of 5 Two Discrete Lengths” bar code and then “0”, “2”, “1” and “4”
bar codes using the Keypad Number Symbols (page 6-91) at the end of this section. Default = 14.
To begin setting two discrete lengths, scan this “I 2 of 5 Two Discrete Lengths” bar code:
Next, scan four numeric bar codes that correspond to the desired value. Single digit numbers must have a leading
zero. If you wish to change your number selection, scan Cancel on the Keypad Number Symbols page.
Length Within Range
This option decodes a code type within a specified minimum and maximum range. For example, when you want to
scan only I 2 of 5 symbols containing between 4 and 12 characters, scan the “I 2 of 5 Length Within Range” bar code
and then “0”, “4”, “1” and “2” bar codes using the Keypad Number Symbols (page 6-91) at the end of this section.
To begin setting lengths within a range, scan this “I 2 of 5 Length Within Range” bar code:
6 - 89
Next, scan numeric bar codes that correspond to the desired value. Single digit numbers must have a leading zero. If
you wish to change your number selection, scan Cancel on the Keypad Number Symbols page.
Any Length
This option decodes I 2 of 5 bar codes containing any number of characters.
Important: Selecting this option may lead to misdecodes for I 2 of 5 codes.
To set any length, scan this “I 2 of 5 Any Length” bar code:
6 - 90
Keypad Number Symbols
The bar code labels shown below represent a numeric keypad, with decimal values 0 through 9. Each label can be scanned
individually to enter a numeric value. Use these numeric value symbols to enter numeric input in the course of performing a
scan engine system configuration.

Decode Zones
Introduction
The scan ranges listed in the following tables are based on the following factors:
• Decode zone is a function of various symbol characteristics including density, print contrast, wide-to-narrow ratio and edge
acuity. Symbols test labels are examples of optimum quality bar codes.
• As distance decreases the visible scan line also decreases (visible scan length = 1.8 x distance to label x TAN (scan angle /
2). The useable scan length is approximately 90% of visible scan line and must fully encompass the bar code label to be
successfully decoded. On larger symbol densities of 20 mil, 40 mil and 55 mil, this affects minimum decode distance.
• + / - 5° pitch is used to reduce the inhibiting effects of spectral reflection (glare) near 0° of the scan head aspect to the bar
code. Optimal operation is obtained at 2° to 15° pitch offset.
• Scan rate of 25 + / - scans second with bi-directional redundancy.
• The long range and advanced long range scanners support the aim-mode feature which allows generation of the laser for
aiming prior to actual bar code decoding with a duration from 1 sec to 8 sec.
The following "good scan and decode" ranges (decode zones) are related to a specific scan engine either integrated or
connected to your mobile device. If you do not see your type of scan engine listed, you may be using a tethered Bluetooth bar
code scanner or a serial port connected bar code scanner (these types of external scanners are not included in this list).
Note: When MX7 is listed in the 'Valid for' table, it represents the MX7 running Windows® CE 5.
