Charging the Battery
CAUTION
Ensure that you follow the guidelines for battery safety described in Battery Safety Guidelines on
Page 120.
Charging the Main Battery and Memory Backup Battery
Before using the FR68 Series for the first time, charge the main battery until the green
Charging/Battery Status LED remains lit (see Table 1-2 on Page 20 for charge status indications). To
charge the FR68 Series, use a cable or a cradle with the appropriate power supply. For information
about the accessories available for the FR68 Series, see Chapter 8, Accessories.
The FR68 Series is equipped with a memory backup battery which automatically charges from the
fully-charged main battery. When using the FR68 Series for the first time, the backup battery requires
approximately 36 hours to fully charge. This is also true any time the backup battery is discharged,
which occurs when the main battery is removed for several hours. The backup battery retains RAM
data in memory for at least 15 minutes (at room temperature) when the FR68 Series' main battery is
removed. When the FR68 Series reaches a very low battery state, the combination of main battery
and backup battery retains RAM data in memory for at least 48 hours.
To charge the main battery, use either a charging cable or a cradle.
z
Single Slot USB/Serial Cradle.
To charge the main battery:
1.
Connect the charging accessory to the appropriate power source.
2.
Insert the FR68 Series into a cradle or attach to a cable. The FR68 Series begins charging. The
Charging/Battery Status LED blinks amber while charging, then turns solid green when fully
charged. See Table 1-2 on Page 20 for charging indications.
The 1950 mAh battery is fully charged in less than four hours, and the 3600 mAh battery, in
approximately six hours.

Data Capture
The FR68 Series offers one type of data capture option: linear scanning
NOTE To perform data capture a scanning enabled application must be installed on the FR68 Series. A
sample scanning application can be downloaded from the Motorola Support sit at: http://www.motorola.com/enterprisemobility/contactsupport.
43
Using the FR68 Series
Linear Scanning
FR68 Series with an integrated linear scanner have the following features:
z
Reading of a variety of bar code symbologies, including the most popular linear, postal, and
1-D code types.
z
Intuitive aiming for easy point-and-shoot operation.
Scanning Considerations
Typically, scanning is a simple matter of aim, scan, and decode and a few quick trial efforts
master it. However, consider the following to optimize scanning performance:
z
Range
Any scanning device decodes well over a particular working range — minimum and maximum
distances from the bar code. This range varies according to bar code density and scanning
device optics.
Scanning within range brings quick and constant decodes; scanning too close or too far away
prevents decodes. Move the scanner closer and further away to find the right working range for
the bar codes being scanned.
z
Angle
Scanning angle is important for promoting quick decodes. When laser beams reflect directly
back into the scanner from the bar code, this special reflection can “blind” the scanner.
To avoid this, scan the bar code so that the beam does not bounce directly back. But don’t scan
at too sharp an angle; the scanner needs to collect scattered reflections from the scan to make a
successful decode. Practice quickly shows what tolerances to work within.
z
Hold the FR68 Series farther away for larger symbols.
z
Move the FR68 Series closer for symbols with bars that are close together.
NOTE
Scanning procedures depend on the application and FR68 Series configuration. An
application may use different scanning procedures from the one listed above.
1. Ensure that a scan enabled application is loaded on the FR68 Series.
2. Aim the scan exit window at the bar code.
Figure 2-15
Linear Scanning
44
Using the FR68 Series
3. Press the scan button. Ensure the red scan beam covers the entire bar code. The Scan/Decode
LED lights red to indicate that scanning is in process, then lights green and a beep sounds, by
default, to indicate the bar code was decoded successfully.

Using GPS Navigation
Using
Chapter 3 Using GPS Navigation
Introduction
The FR68 Series includes Global Positioning System (GPS) technology using the Qualcomm chip.
GPS technology is based on a worldwide system of GPS satellites orbiting the earth that continuously
transmit digital radio signals. These radio signals contain data on the satellites’ locations and their
exact clock time and are used to determine your location on the earth.
WARNING!
When using the FR68 Series in a vehicle, it is the user’s responsibility to place, secure
and use in a manner that will not cause accidents, personal injury or property damage
or obstruct their view. It is the responsibility of the driver to operate the vehicle in a
safe manner, maintain observation of all driving conditions at all times, and not become
distracted by the device to the exclusion of safe driving practices. It is unsafe to
operate the controls of the device while driving.
Software Installation
Third-party GPS navigation software is required. Evaluation software is available from various
suppliers.
If interested in purchasing GPS navigation software check with the GPS software vendor (before
purchasing, downloading, or installing any software) to determine that the application is compatible
with the FR68 Series. Refer to the application’s user guide for application installation and setup
information.
FR68 Series GPS Setup
The GPS-enabled FR68 Series uses Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.1, so the operating system
automatically manages access to the GPS receiver to allow multiple programs to simultaneously
access GPS data.
Ensure that the following settings are set on the FR68 Series:
1.
Tap Start > Settings > System > External GPS icon.
2.
In the Programs tab, select GPD1 from the GPS program port drop-down list.
57
Using GPS Navigation
Using
3.
In the Hardware tab, select COM6 in the GPS hardware port drop-down list.
4.
Tap ok to close the Setting window.
NOTE
If an application error message appears indicating that the COM port cannot be opened, ensure
that a free COM port is selected in the GPS hardware port drop-down list.
Operation
Acquiring satellite signals may take a few minutes. It is best to be outside and have a clear,
unobstructed view of the sky. Without a clear view, acquisition takes much longer and could result in
the FR68 Series being unable to compute the initial position quickly. When operating the device
indoors access to the GPS signals may be limited or unavailable.
NOTE
When using a GPS navigation application, ensure that the FR68 Series does not go into suspend
mode. If the FR68 Series suspends then the power to the GPS radio is removed. Upon resume the
GPS receiver must reacquire a valid GPS signal, resulting in a delay of positional information.
GPS Maps on microSD Cards
GPS navigation software vendors may sell maps on microSD cards. If using a microSD card with the
GPS navigation software:
1.
Remove the Memory Card Cover on the side of the FR68 Series.
2.
Insert the microSD card into the slot.
3.
Replace the Memory Card Cover.
Downloading GPS Data
Use this function to download GPS data to enhance GPS performance. This may require additional
charge for data connection.

Answering a Phone Call While Using GPS
If you receive a phone call while using your GPS navigation software:
1.
Answer the phone call by pressing the Answer button.
2.
Once you end the phone call, press the End C all button to resume the audio on the GPS
software.
NOTE Anytime you are using GPS on the FR68 Series and you receive a phone call, the audio on the GPS
navigation software is muted until you finish the call.
Losing the GPS Signal While in a Vehicle
GPS performance on the FR68 Series may be affected if the vehicle has thermal glass windows and
windshields, which can block the FR68 Series from receiving a GPS signal from satellites. To improve
GPS signal strength, place the FR68 Series where there is a clear view of the sky. A direct line of sight
is required between the FR68 Series and the GPS satellites to access information from the satellites.
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a system that allows the user to track their position anywhere
on the earth.
Assisted GPS
GPS can be used in stand-alone or Assisted GPS (A-GPS) modes. A Stand-alone GPS receiver
downloads data from GPS satellites. It can take several minutes to get a fix. By using GPS Location
servers, A-GPS dramatically improves the performance of the Time To First Fix (TTFF) of GPS
receivers by providing them with data that they would ordinarily have to download from the GPS
satellites. With the A-GPS data, GPS receivers can operate faster and more reliably.
A-GPS follows the Secure User Plane Location (SUPL) protocol which allows the FR68 Series to
communicate with a location server.

Using Bluetooth
Chapter 4 Using Bluetooth
Introduction
Bluetooth-equipped devices can communicate without wires, using frequency-hopping spread
spectrum (FHSS) radio frequency (RF) to transmit and receive data in the 2.4 GHz Industry Scientific
and Medical (ISM) band (802.15.1). Bluetooth wireless technology is specifically designed for
short-range (30 feet/10 meters) communication and low power consumption.
FR68 Series with Bluetooth capabilities can exchange information (e.g., files, appointments, and
tasks) with other Bluetooth enabled devices such as phones, and other mobile computers. To use the
FR68 Series as a modem, create a dial-up modem connection between a computer and FR68
Series.
Adaptive Frequency Hopping
Adaptive Frequency Hopping (AFH) is a method of avoiding fixed frequency interferers, and can be
used with Bluetooth voice. All devices in the piconet (Bluetooth network) must be AFH-capable in
order for AFH to work. There is no AFH when connecting and discovering devices. Avoid making
Bluetooth connections and discoveries during critical 802.11b communications. AFH for Bluetooth
consists of four main sections:
•
Channel Classification - A method of detecting an interference on a channel-by-channel basis, or
pre-defined channel mask.
•
Link Management - Coordinates and distributes the AFH information to the rest of the Bluetooth
network.
•
Hop Sequence Modification - Avoids interference by selectively reducing the number of hopping
channels.
•
Channel Maintenance - A method for periodically re-evaluating the channels.
When AFH is enabled, the Bluetooth radio “hops around” (instead of through) the 802.11b high-rate
channels. AFH coexistence allows Motorola mobile computers to operate in any infrastructure.
The Bluetooth radio in this FR68 Series operates as a Class 2 device power class. The maximum
output power is 2.5mW and the expected range is 32.8 feet (10 meters). A definition of ranges based
on power class is difficult to obtain due to power and device differences, and whether one measures
open space or closed office space.
61
Using Bluetooth
NOTE
It is not recommended to perform Bluetooth wireless technology inquiry when high rate 802.11b
operation is required.
Security
The current Bluetooth specification defines security at the link level. Application-level security is not
specified. This allows application developers to define security mechanisms tailored to their specific
need. Link-level security occurs between devices, not users, while application-level security can be
implemented on a per-user basis. The Bluetooth specification defines security algorithms and
procedures needed to authenticate devices, and if needed, encrypt the data flowing on the link
between the devices. Device authentication is a mandatory feature of Bluetooth while link encryption is
optional.
Pairing of Bluetooth devices is accomplished by creating an initialization key that is used to
authenticate the devices and create a link key for them. Entering a common PIN number in the
devices being paired generates the initialization key. The PIN number is never sent over the air. By
default, the Bluetooth stack responds with no key when a key is requested (it is up to user to respond
to the key request event). Authentication of Bluetooth devices is based-upon a challenge-response
transaction. Bluetooth allows for a PIN number or passkey that is used to create other 128-bit keys
used for security and encryption. The encryption key is derived from the link key used to authenticate
the pairing devices. Also worthy of note is the limited range and fast frequency hopping of the
Bluetooth radios that makes long-distance eavesdropping difficult.
Recommendations are:
z
Perform pairing in a secure environment.
z
Keep PIN codes private and don't store the PIN codes in the mobile computer.
z
Implement application-level security.
Turning the Bluetooth Radio Mode On and Off
Turn off the Bluetooth radio to save power or if entering an area with radio restrictions (e.g., an
airplane). When the radio is off, other Bluetooth devices cannot see or connect to the FR68 Series.
Turn on the Bluetooth radio to exchange information with other Bluetooth devices (within range).
Communicate only with Bluetooth radios in close proximity.
NOTE
To achieve the best battery life turn off radios not in use.

Smart Dialing
Smart Dialing makes it easy to dial a phone number. When you start entering numbers or characters,
Smart Dialing automatically searches and sorts the contact entries on the SIM card, in Contacts, and
the phone numbers in Call History (including incoming, outgoing, and missed calls). You can then
select the desired number or contact from the filtered list to dial.
Open the Phone screen, then tap the keys on the Phone keypad that correspond to the phone number
or contact to call. The contact panel lists contacts that match the sequence that you entered.
Smart Dialing starts looking for numbers or contacts that match the sequence entered. To find a
phone number:
z
Enter the first one or two digits to find a phone number in Call History.
z
Enter the first three digits or more to find a phone number from the saved Contacts and SIM
card.
To find a contact name:
z
z
Enter the first letter of a contact’s first name or last name. Smart Dialing searches for the letter
starting from the first character of a contact name as well as from the character that appears
after a space, dash, or underscore in a contact name. For example, if you tap number “2” which
is associated with [a, b, c] on the Phone keypad, contact names such as the following will be
considered matches: “Smith, Bernard”, “Adams, John”, “Carlson, Eileen”, “Dillon, Albert”, “Childs,
Larry”, “Cooper, Robert” and “Parks, Celine”.
If the matching list is long narrow down the search further by entering another letter. Using the
same example above, tap “3” which is associated with (d, e, f), the matching list is narrowed
down to the following names: “Smith, Bernard”, “Adams, John”, and “Parks, Celine”.

Chapter 7 GSM Configuration
Introduction
This chapter explains how to verify FR6874 and FR6876 service on an Global System for Mobile
communications (GSM) wireless network and establish settings.
GSM networks deliver mobile voice and data services, such as Short Message Service
(SMS)/Text Messaging, with full roaming capabilities across the world. High-speed Downlink
Packet Access (HSDPA) enabled networks offer Internet-based content and packet-based data
services. This enables services such as internet browsing, e-mail on the move, powerful visual
communications, multimedia messages, and location-based services. When using the FR6874,
FR6876 as a phone, services can include speed dialing, call tracking, voice mail, call forwarding,
conference calling, and caller ID, depending on the type of service.
Also use the integrated phone as a modem to connect the FR6874/FR6876 to an ISP or work
network. The GSM enabled FR6874, FR6876 can connect to the Internet or work network using
Cellular Line, or using the modem specified by the mobile phone service provider.
NOTE
Before using an FR6874/FR6876 on a wireless network, first select a provider, establish a voice
and data-enabled service plan, and configure the FR6874/FR6876 (where applicable). See
Chapter 6, Using the Phone for information on how to use the phone and services.
FR6874/FR6876 Service Verification
FR6874/FR6876 phone and data services require a live SIM card, obtained from a service
provider, installed in the FR6874/FR6876. The SIM card has embedded circuitry on one side of
its surface which, when inserted into an FR6874/FR6876 phone, provides phone service. The
SIM card provides a phone number, determines the features or services available to the
subscriber, and identifies the subscriber to the network.
In addition to SIM card installation, the FR6874/FR6876 may require various settings to operate
as a phone with data connection features.
Ensuring Network Coverage
1. Ensure an activated SIM card, from the phone service provider, is installed in the
FR6874/FR6876.
NOTE
The SIM card must be enabled to connect to the network.

B
Bar. The dark element in a printed bar code symbol.
Bar Code. A pattern of variable-width bars and spaces which represents numeric or alphanumeric
data in machine-readable form. The general format of a bar code symbol consists of a leading margin,
start character, data or message character, check character (if any), stop character, and trailing
margin. Within this framework, each recognizable symbology uses its own unique format. See
Symbology.
Bar Code Density. The number of characters represented per unit of measurement (e.g., characters
per inch).
Bit. Binary digit. One bit is the basic unit of binary information. Generally, eight consecutive bits
compose one byte of data.
The pattern of 0 and 1 values within the byte determines its meaning.
boot or boot-up
The process a computer goes through when it starts. During boot-up, the computer can run
self-diagnostic tests and configure hardware and software.
C
Cold Boot. A cold boot restarts the mobile computer and erases all user stored records and entries.
COM port. Communication port; ports are identified by number, e.g., COM1, COM2.
Cradle. A cradle is used for charging the terminal battery and for communicating with a host
computer, and provides a storage place for the terminal when not in use.
D
Decode. To recognize a bar code symbology (e.g., UPC/EAN) and then analyze the content of the
133
Glossary
specific bar code scanned.
E
ESD. Electro-Static Discharge
F
Flash Memory
Flash memory is nonvolatile, semi-permanent storage that can be electronically erased in the
circuit and reprogrammed. FR68 Series mobile computers use Flash memory to store the
operating system (ROM-DOS), the terminal emulators, and the Citrix ICA Client for DOS.
H
Hz. Hertz; A unit of frequency equal to one cycle per second.
Host Computer. A computer that serves other terminals in a network, providing such services as
computation, database access, supervisory programs and network control.
High-Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA). A 3G (third generation) mobile telephony
communications protocol in the High-Speed Packet Access (HSPA) family, which allows networks
based on Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) to have higher data transfer
speeds and capacity.
I
IEC. International Electrotechnical Commission. This international agency regulates laser safety
by specifying various laser operation classes based on power output during operation.
IP. Internet Protocol. The IP part of the TCP/IP communications protocol. IP implements the
network layer (layer 3) of the protocol, which contains a network address and is used to route a
message to a different network or subnetwork. IP accepts “packets” from the layer 4 transport
protocol (TCP or UDP), adds its own header to it and delivers a “datagram” to the layer 2 data link
protocol. It may also break the packet into fragments to support the maximum transmission unit
(MTU) of the network.
IP Address. (Internet Protocol address) The address of a computer attached to an IP network.
Every client and server station must have a unique IP address. A 32-bit address used by a
computer on a IP network. Client workstations have either a permanent address or one that is
dynamically assigned to them each session. IP addresses are written as four sets of numbers
separated by periods; for example, 204.171.64.2.
K
Key. A key is the specific code used by the algorithm to encrypt or decrypt the data. Also see,
Encryption and Decrypting.

Glossary
L
LASER. Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. The laser is an intense light
source. Light from a laser is all the same frequency, unlike the output of an incandescent bulb.
Laser light is typically coherent and has a high energy density.
laser scanner. A type of bar code reader that uses a beam of laser light.
LED Indicator. A semiconductor diode (LED - Light Emitting Diode) used as an indicator, often in
digital displays. The semiconductor uses applied voltage to produce light of a certain frequency
determined by the semiconductor's particular chemical composition.
M
MC. Mobile Computer.
Mobile Computer. In this text, mobile computer refers to the MC75. It can be set up to run as a
stand-alone device, or it can be set up to communicate with a network, using wireless radio
technology.
Q
QWERTY. A standard keyboard commonly used on North American and some European PC
keyboards. “QWERTY” refers to the arrangement of keys on the left side of the third row of keys.
R
RF. Radio Frequency.
ROM. Read-Only Memory. Data stored in ROM cannot be changed or removed.
S
Scanner. An electronic device used to scan bar code symbols and produce a digitized pattern
that corresponds to the bars and spaces of the symbol. Its three main components are: 1) Light
source (laser or photoelectric cell) - illuminates a bar code,; 2) Photodetector - registers the
difference in reflected light (more light reflected from spaces); 3) Signal conditioning circuit transforms optical detector output into a digitized bar pattern.
Space. The lighter element of a bar code formed by the background between bars.
Symbol. A scannable unit that encodes data within the conventions of a certain symbology,
usually including start/stop characters, quiet zones, data characters and check characters.
