1 Introduction
The BL 1000 is a breakthrough in affordable wireless laser scanning. The scanner has all of the scanning
performance of more expensive laser scanners, the convenience of hand-held portability, and the advantage of
Bluetooth® Wireless Technology. The BL1000 has a 10 to 15 meter real-time operating range, and an
unlimited batch range with automatic reconnection. In store-and-forward mode you can capture approximately
500 UPC barcode symbols, and then automatically upload them when you move back into range.
The BL 1000 Scanner provides backward compatibility with the optional Serial Cable. You can plug the cable
into the scanner for use with an existing system, and then disconnect for wireless operations.

2 Installing/replacing batteries
Use only Alkaline batteries in your BL 1000. Please remove the batteries when you are storing the scanner for
more than 30 days.
1. Turn the scanner over so that the back faces up.
2. Remove the battery cover by pressing the button at the top of the cover, and moving the cover down.
3. If there are batteries in the scanner, remove them.
4. Insert the new batteries so that the positive end (+) is up on the outside batteries, and down on the middle
battery.
5. Replace the battery cover by inserting the tabs at the top of the cover into the slots in the back of the
scanner. Slide the cover up.

Scanning Position."
2. Gently press the scan button.
3. Position the scanner so that the red light beam fully crosses the bar code.
4. The scanner will emit a beep when the scan is successful.

4 Quick Start Up guide
Find below how to quickly verify that your scanner is working correctly, using the BaracodaManager:
• Make sure that your host device (PC or PDA) is bluetooth enabled. If not, please contact your reseller.
• Install the BaracodaManager. (update can be downloaded from http://www.baracoda.com/download.
) Make sure that your Bluetooth software is compatible with BaracodaManager. For instructions, see
the BaracodaManager user guide.
1. Install the Bluetooth adapter in the host device.
The host device is the PC or PDA that will receive the bar codes from the scanner. For installation instructions,
see the documentation provided with the adapter.
2. Download the software from www.baracoda.com/download/
3. Install BaracodaManager. For instructions, see the BaracodaManager User’s guide.
4. Install the batteries in the scanner. Follow the steps outlined in "Installing and Replacing the Batteries."
5. Configure BaracodaManager to connect to the scanner.
a. Start BaracodaManager by selecting Start > Programs > BaracodaManager > BaracodaManager
The application automatically searches for cordless scanners.
b. Put the scanner on discoverable mode by pressing the button.
c. Highlight the scanner in the Devices in Range box, and click Add.
d. The Bluetooth Connection asks for the passkey. While the message displays, click the Bluetooth
Connection icon in the system tray at right side of the task bar.
e. Enter 0000 in the Bluetooth Passkey Request dialog box.
f. Look at the status of the scanner in the BL 1000 application window. When the status changes to
"Connected," the scanner is ready to be used.
6. Verify that the scanner is working correctly. The first time you configure a scanner, BaracodaManager opens
a terminal window. Scan the Sample Bar Code below. If information appears in the terminal window, the
scanner is working correctly. To change the data output mode:
a. Close the Terminal window by clicking Exit.
b. Select the new mode from the Plug-in drop down menu. For more information, see the
BaracodaManager User's Guide.
7. When you have finished your session, click Exit on the application to save your configuration.

5 Configuring your scanner
There are two ways to configure your scanner:
When connected to host device, you can use the BaracodaManager for multiple settings (refer to
BaracodaManager documentation). Or, you can use configuration barcodes (refer to the programming guide).
To reset the scanner to its “default settings”, use BaracodaManager Software (should you experience any
problems, please contact your reseller).
5.1 Usage modes
The scanner runs in two modes. When the scanner is connected to the Bluetooth host device, it uploads the
barcodes as you scan them. When the scanner is out of range, it saves the bar codes in memory. When you
move the scanner back into range, the scanner automatically connects to the Bluetooth host device, and
uploads the saved barcodes.
1. Make sure the scanner is connected by looking at its status in the “my paired devices” window.
2. Check that the application that will receive the decoded bar codes is active.
3. When you have successfully scanned the bar code, you will hear a beep and the green LED will blink.
If you hear three beeps, the scanner's memory is full. Move the scanner back into range of the Bluetooth host
device. The scanner automatically uploads the saved bar codes, and clears its memory. The scanner beeps
three times in descending pitch when it has finished the upload.
