SW Developer’s Toolkits Component Overview
The Software Developer’s Toolkits component is the DS for Formula™
environment for developing custom applications with the 8051 Keil Compiler.
A set of Workdemo examples source code is installed together with this
component.
DS for Formula™ is a software package that provides instruments for fully
exploiting Formula™ terminals by creating fully-structured and personalized
applications.
DS for Formula™ can be used to:
generate applications for new Formula™ terminal;
re-generate applications developed for old Formula™ terminals to let them
run on new Formula™ terminal.
The DS for Formula™ distributed with this product can not generate
applications for old Formula™ terminals.
For compatibility and portability details see SW Dev Toolkits Developer’s
Manual Vol2. Section A.
DS for Formula™ uses a «C» standard ANSI compiler, integrated with special
libraries, operating in a MS-DOS environment and developed specifically for the
type of terminal processor. The libraries, developed by Datalogic Mobile S.r.l.,
permit direct management of the terminal functions. For example, the
management of barcode reading devices is immediate and rational thanks to
the interaction with functions that automatically start up the barcode acquisition
procedure.
Equally transparent, by using a philosophy of events programming, is the
procedure managing the keyboard, display, serial and radio-frequency
communication, calendar/clock and the data memory organized into banks,
either directly or through a vdisk function.
DS for Formula™ also offers a series of effective general purpose application
examples, which represent an excellent starting point while simultaneously
providing a practical guide for studying and working on complex or personalized
programs. Refer to the SW Dev Toolkits Developer’s Manual for details.

quick Applications running on Formula™ device.
A set of ready-to-use EasyGen™ Application examples are installed together
with this component. These are the most common application examples (data
collection, inventory, goods picking, assisted sales) available in 5 languages
(English, French, German, Italian, Spanish).
By using the EasyGen™ application generator, developers can easily customize
applications according to the end user’s specific needs, solving the most
common data collection applications such as inventory, picking and
shipping/receiving.
EasyGen™ is the ideal solution for making Formula™ batch terminals
productive instantly. In a familiar environment, developers have all the
instruments at their disposal to reduce programming times (and therefore costs)
while maintaining a high standard of quality in the creation of personalized
applications whatever their nature, whether simple (e.g. a program for inserting
codes/quantities) or more sophisticated.

MAINTENANCE
Rechargeable backup batteries and battery packs are not
initially charged. Therefore the initial operation to perform is
to charge them. See below.
NOTE
CAUTION
4.1
By default, the backup battery is disconnected at the factory
to avoid damage due to excessive draining. If it is not
connected (through the backup battery switch) and
subsequently charged together with the battery pack, all
data will be lost when changing the battery pack.
Annual replacement of rechargeable battery pack avoids
possible risks or abnormalities and ensures maximum
performance.
CONNECTING THE BACKUP BATTERY
The backup battery must be connected by putting the switch in the "connected"
position. It will be charged together with the battery pack through the normal
charging process.
It is only necessary to disconnect the backup battery if it will not be used for a
long period of time (i.e. several weeks).

Be careful when using sharp-edged tools to move the
switch from the “disconnected” position to the "connected"
position and vice versa!

CHARGING THE BATTERY PACK
The battery pack autonomy varies according to factors such as the frequency of
barcode scanning, RF usage, etc.
The battery icon on the Taskbar indicates when the battery pack is low.
It is possible to recharge the battery pack by connecting the power supply
directly to the Formula™.
Alternatively, it is also possible to recharge the battery pack by using the
Formula™ single cradle.
During the charging process the LED positioned at the right side of the display
is red constant. Once the charging process has been completed this LED is
green constant (see par. 3.7).
If the battery pack is removed from the mobile computer, it can be recharged by
inserting it into the rear slot of the Formula™ single cradle.
The battery pack autonomy varies according to many factors,
such as the frequency of barcode scanning, RF usage, battery
life, storage, environmental conditions, etc.
NOTE
CAUTION
If the battery pack is new or has not been recharged for a
long time, it is necessary to perform two or three charging
and discharging cycles (complete use) before it can reach
its maximum charge capability.
The maximum time required to recharge a completely rundown battery pack is about 3 hours if the mobile computer
is idling.
Even if the storage temperature range is wider, In order to
achieve the longest battery life, store the terminal and the
spare batteries between 20 to 30 ºC (68 to 86 ºF).
NOTE
The Batteries must be charged at a temperature ranging
from 0° to +45 °C (+32° to +113 °F).

of explosion.
Do not place the battery pack in or near a fire or heat; do not
place the battery pack in direct sunlight, or use or store the
battery pack inside unventilated areas in hot weather; do not
place the battery pack in microwave ovens, dryer, high pressure
containers, on induction cookware or similar device. Doing so
may cause the battery pack to generate heat, explode or ignite.
Using the battery pack in this manner may also result in a loss of
performance and a shortened life expectancy.
Use only a Datalogic Mobile approved power supply. The use of
an alternative power supply will void the product warranty, may
cause product damage and may cause heat, explode or ignite.
The area in which the units are charged should be clear of debris
and combustible materials or chemicals.
Do not use the battery pack of this terminal for power devices
different from this mobile computer.
Immediately discontinue use of the battery pack if, while using,
charging or storing the battery pack, the battery pack emits an
unusual smell, feels hot, changes colour or shape, or appears
abnormal in any other way.
Do not short-circuit the battery pack contacts connecting the
positive terminal and negative terminal. This might happen, for
example, when you carry a spare battery pack in your pocket or
purse; accidental short–circuiting can occur when a metallic
object such as a coin, clip, or pen causes direct connection of
the contacts of the battery pack (these look like metal strips on
the battery pack). Short–circuiting the terminals may damage the
battery pack or the connecting object.
Do not apply voltages to the battery pack contacts.
Do not pierce the battery pack with nails, strike it with a hammer,
step on it or otherwise subject it to strong impacts or shocks.
Do not disassemble or modify (i.e. bend, crush or deform) the
battery pack. The battery pack contains safety and protection
devices, which, if damaged, may cause the battery pack to
generate heat, explode or ignite.

In case of leakage of liquid from the battery, avoid contact with
liquid the skin or eyes. If the contact occurs, immediately wash
the affected area with water and consult a doctor.
WARNING Do not solder directly onto the battery pack.
Do not expose the battery pack to liquids.
Avoid any knocks or excessive vibrations. If the device or the
battery is dropped, especially on a hard surface, you should take
it to the nearest Authorised Repair Centre for inspection before
continuing to use it.
Do not replace the battery pack when the device is turned on.
Do not remove or damage the battery pack’s label.
Do not use the battery pack if it is damaged in any part.
Battery pack usage by children should be supervised.
Collect and recycle waste batteries separately from the device
in comply with European Directive 2006/66/EC, 2002/95/EC,
2002/96/EC and subsequent modifications, US and China
regulatory and others laws and regulations about environment.
NOTE
In order to guarantee an adequate operating autonomy,
when replacing the battery pack the mobile computer
checks the battery energy level. If the battery is not
sufficiently charged, Formula™ does not turn on (when
pressing the ON/OFF key).
In this case, either substitute the battery pack with a
charged one (sufficiently charged) or insert Formula™ into a
powered cradle or plug it into the direct power supply.
If alkaline batteries are used, the operating autonomy may
vary according to operating conditions and battery
manufacturer.
To achieve the best battery life, turn off the radios not in
use.
NOTE
4.4
CLEANING THE MOBILE COMPUTER
Periodically clean the Formula™ with a slightly dampened cloth.
Do not use alcohol, corrosive products or solvents.

GLOSSARY
Barcode
A pattern of variable-width bars and spaces which represents numeric or
alphanumeric data in binary form. The general format of a barcode 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.
Baud Rate
A measure for data transmission speed.
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.
Bluetooth®
A standard radio technology using a proprietary protocol. The onboard
Bluetooth module in the mobile computer is compatible with the 1.1 protocol.
Byte
On an addressable boundary, eight adjacent binary digits (0 and 1) combined in
a pattern to represent a specific character or numeric value. Bits are numbered
from the right, 0 through 7, with bit 0 the low-order bit. One byte in Formula™
can be used to store one ASCII character.
Decode
To recognize a bar code symbology (e.g., Codabar, Code 128, Code 3 of 9,
UPC/EAN, etc.) and analyze the content of the bar code scanned.
EEPROM
Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Formula™. An on-board nonvolatile Formula™ chip.
Flash Disk
Non-volatile Formula™ for storing application and configuration files.
Host
A computer that serves other mobile computers in a network, providing services
such as network control, database access, special programs, supervisory
programs, or programming languages.
Liquid Crystal Display (LCD)
A display that uses liquid crystal sealed between two glass plates. The crystals
are excited by precise electrical charges, causing them to reflect light outside
according to their bias. They use little electricity and react relatively quickly.
They require external light to reflect their information to the user.
46
Light Emitting Diode (LED)
A low power electronic light source commonly used as an indicator light. It uses
less power than an incandescent light bulb but more than a Liquid Crystal
Display (LCD).
RAM
Random Access Formula™. Data in RAM can be accessed in random order,
and quickly written and read.
RF
Radio Frequency.
RTC
Real Time Clock.
Terminal
A Datalogic portable computer product.
