INTRODUCTION
Product Overview
Metrologic’s MS9520 Voyager® and the MS9540 VoyagerCG® are a group of
single-line laser bar code scanners that have the ability to decode all standard
1D, RSS-14, RSS Limited and RSS Expanded bar codes. The MS9520 is
packed with all of the same features as the MS9540, with the exception of
Metrologic’s patented CodeGate® technology.
Some additional key product features include:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Auto-trigger operation and auto-stand detect
CodeGate data transmission technology (MS9540 only)
Flash – Upgradeable Firmware
Detachable user-replaceable cables
Easy configuration with MetroSelect® barcodes and MetroSet®2
®
Windows compatible software
Support for common interfaces including USB (see chart below)
A 5-year limited warranty
Sunrise 2005 compliant
The MS9540 includes Metrologic’s patented auto-trigger and CodeGate button
feature. When a bar code is place in the scanner’s IR range the auto-trigger
activates the laser allowing the user to easily align the visible laser line over the
bar code selected for scanning. Then, just press the CodeGate button and the
data is transmitted to the host system.
Equipped with both ‘in-stand’ and ‘out-of-stand’ operation, the Voyager and
VoyagerCG can be used as hand-held or fixed projection scanners.
The VoyagerCG automatically senses when it is placed in the stand and
de-activates the CodeGate button for hands free operation.

INDICATORS
Audible
When the Voyager is in operation, it provides audible feedback. These sounds
indicate the status of the scanner. Eight settings are available for the tone of the
beep (normal, 6 alternate tones and no tone). To change the beeper tone, refer
to the MetroSelect Single-Line Configuration Guide or MetroSet2’s help files.
One Beep
When the scanner first receives power, the green* LED will turn
on, then the red* LED will flash and the scanner will beep once.
The red LED will remain on for the duration of the beep. The
scanner is ready to scan.
When the scanner successfully reads a bar code, the red LED will
flash and the scanner beeps once (if configured to do so). If the
scanner does not beep once and the red light does not flash, then
the bar code has not been successfully read.
Razzberry Tone
This tone is a failure indicator. Refer to “Failure Modes"
on page 19.
Two Beeps – On Power Up
When a Flash ROM upgrade is needed, the scanner will beep
twice followed by alternating flashes of the green and red LEDs.
Three Beeps - During Operation
When entering configuration mode, the red LED will flash while the
scanner simultaneously beeps three times. The red and green
LEDs will continue to flash while in this mode. Upon exiting
configuration mode, the scanner will beep three times, and the
LEDs will stop flashing.
When configured, 3 beeps can also indicate a communications
timeout during normal scanning mode.
When using one-code-configuration, the scanner will beep three
times (the current selected tone), followed by a short pause then
by a high tone and a low tone. This tells the user that the single
configuration bar code has successfully configured the scanner.
Three Beeps - On Power Up
This is a failure indicator. Refer to “Failure Modes” on page 19.
*
In some custom units the standard green LED has been replaced with a blue LED and
the red LED has been replaced with a white LED.
17
INDICATORS
Visual
The MS9540 has three LED indicators (green, red and yellow) located on the
head of the scanner. The MS9520 has two LED indicators (green* and red*)
located on the head of the scanner. When the scanner is on, the flashing or
stationary activity of the LEDs indicates the status of the current scan and the
scanner.
Green*, Red* & Yellow (MS9540’s Only) LEDs are off
The LEDs will not be illuminated if the scanner is not receiving
power from the host or transformer.
The scanner is in stand-by mode, and CodeGate is
enabled. Present a bar code to the scanner and the
green LED will turn on when the laser turns on.
Steady Yellow (MS9540’s Only)
The CodeGate button is not active. If a bar code is in the scan
field, the laser will turn on. The bar code will be decoded and
transmitted to the host automatically.
Steady Green
When the laser is active, the green LED is illuminated.
The green LED will remain illuminated until the laser is deactivated
(default mode only).
Steady Green and Single Red Flash
When the scanner successfully reads a bar code, the red
LED will flash and the scanner will beep once. If the red LED does
not flash or the scanner does not beep once, then the bar code has
not been successfully read (default mode only).
Steady Green and Steady Red
After a successful scan, the scanner transmits the data to the host
device. Some communication modes require that the host inform
the scanner when data is ready to be received. If the host is not
ready to accept the information, the scanner’s red LED will remain
on until the data can be transmitted.
Alternating Flashing of Green and Red
This indicates the scanner is configuration mode. A razzberry
tone indicates that an invalid bar code has been scanned while in
this mode.
The scanner needs a Flash ROM upgrade if the red and green
LEDs flash alternately and the unit beeps three times during
startup.
*
18
In some custom units the standard green LED has been replaced with a blue LED and
the red LED has been replaced with a white LED.
INDICATORS
Visual
Steady Red, Green* off
This indicates the scanner may be waiting for communication from
the host.
Failure Modes
Flashing Green* and one Razzberry Tone
This indicates the scanner has experienced a laser sub-system
failure. Return the unit for repair to an authorized service center.
Flashing Red* and Green* with Two Razzberry Tones
This indicates the scanner has experienced a scanning
mechanism failure. Return the unit for repair to an authorized
service center.
Continuous Razzberry Tone with all LEDs off
If, upon power, the scanner emits a continuous razzberry tone,
then the scanner has an experienced an electronic failure. Return
the unit for repair to an authorized service center.
Three Beeps – on power up
If the scanner beeps 3 times on power up then the non-volatile
memory (NovRAM) that holds the scanner configuration has
failed. If the scanner does not respond after reconfiguring, return
the scanner for repair to an authorized service center.
*
In some custom units the standard green LED has been replaced with a blue LED and
the red LED has been replaced with a white LED.
19
CONFIGURATION MODES
The MS9500 Voyager has 3 modes of configuration.
•
Bar Codes
Voyager or Voyager CG can be configured by scanning the bar codes
located in the MetroSelect® Single-Line Configuration Guide
(MLPN 00-02544). This manual can be downloaded for FREE at
www.metrologic.com.
•
MetroSet®2
This user-friendly Windows-based configuration software allows you to
simply ‘point-and-click’ at the desired scanner options. This software can be
downloaded for FREE at www.metrologic.com or set-up disks can be
ordered by calling 1-800-ID-METRO.
•
Serial Configuration
This mode of configuration is ideal for OEM applications. This mode gives
the end-user the ability to send a series of commands using the serial port of
the host system. The commands are equivalent to the numerical values of
the bar codes located in the MetroSelect Single-Line Configuration Guide
(MLPN 00-02544).
How does Serial Configuration work?
1.
Each command sent to the scanner is the ASCII representation of each
numeral in the configuration bar code. The entire numeric string is framed
with an ASCII [stx] and an ASCII [etx].
EXAMPLE #1:
Command for Disabling Codabar

2.
If the command sent to the scanner is valid, the scanner will respond with an
[ack].
3.
If the command sent to the scanner in invalid, the scanner will respond with
a [nak].
NOTE: If this occurs, the end-user must start over at the very beginning of
the configuration sequence. Re-transmitting the invalid command
will not work, the user must start over.

CONFIGURATION MODES
4.
During configuration, the motor and laser turn off. YOU CANNOT SCAN A
BAR CODE WHILE IN SERIAL CONFIGURATION MODE.
5.
There is a 20 second window between commands. If a 20 second timeout
occurs, the scanner will send a [nak] and you must start over.
6.
To enter serial configuration mode, send the following command
[stx]999999[etx].
7.
To exit serial configuration mode, send the following command
[stx]999999[etx], the scanner will respond with an [ack] followed by 3 beeps.
8.
This mode uses the current Baud Rate, Parity, Stop Bits and Data Bits
settings that are configured in the scanner. The default settings of the
scanner are 9600, Space, 2, 7 respectively. If a command is sent to the
scanner to change any of these settings, the change will NOT take effect
until after serial configuration mode is exited.
EXAMPLE #2:
The following example will set the scanner to the factory default settings,
Disable Scanning of Code 128 bar codes, change the beeper tone, and add
a “G” as a configurable prefix.

The commands sent to the scanner do not include the small superscripted
‘3’ that you see in front of each bar code string in the MetroSelect manual.
THE ‘3’ SHOULD NOT BE SENT. IT IS A CODE TYPE DESIGNATION
ONLY!
As you will note for commands requiring additional bar codes to be scanned
(such as prefixes, suffixes, timeouts, etc.), simply send the code bytes in the
same order that you would normally scan the bar codes.

This example illustrates two important points.
First, if an invalid command is sent from the host, the scanner responds with
a [nak] and the end-user must start over from the beginning.
Second, if a command is sent to change the Baud Rate, the new baud rate
does not take effect until after the end-user exits configuration mode.

UPGRADING THE FLASH ROM FIRMWARE
The MetroSet2 program is a functional component of Metrologic’s new line of
Flash based scanners. This program allows the user of a Metrologic scanner to
quickly upgrade to a new or custom version of software. It requires the use of a
personal computer running under Windows 95 or greater and the use of a
communication port. The user merely connects the scanner to a
communications port of the PC, launches the MetroSet2 program, and blasts off
to new software upgrades.
Each MS9500, regardless of the version number or communication protocol, can
be upgraded. In other words, all RS232 (-41), keyboard wedge (-47), light pen
(-41), laser emulation (-00), OCIA (-9), IBM 468X/469X (-11), low speed USB
(-38), and full speed USB (-40) units can be upgraded. To upgrade all units, a
power supply and PowerLink cable (MLPN 54-54012) are required.
The upgrades and custom software versions will be supplied by Metrologic in
files called Motorola S-record files. These files contain all the information needed
to upgrade the scanner. Simply add this file to the working directory or retrieve
from its current location.
The program guides the user with its simplistic one click approach. The user
must first select the file; once selected and verified the file is ready to be used in
the upgrade. Press the button to upgrade the scanner, the unit will go into a
“flash mode” – both the green* and red* LEDs will be on. The user can follow the
progress of the upgrade by watching the screen for details. When the upgrade is
complete, the scanner will respond with its normal one beep on power up. If two
beeps occur, the scanner did not upgrade properly. Contact a Metrologic service
representative for additional assistance.
*
In some custom units the standard green LED has been replaced with a blue LED and
the red LED has been replaced with a white LED.

IR ACTIVATION RANGE
The default laser/scan mode for the MS95x0 series is Normal Scan. Any
movement detected by the IR in the activation area will cause the scanner to
automatically turn the laser on, preparing the scanner for bar code recognition,
decoding and transmission.

27
TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
Symptoms
Possible Causes
The unit powers
up, but does not
scan and/or
beep.
The bar code being
scanned does not
satisfy the configured
criteria for character
length lock or minimum
length.
Verify that the bar code being
scanned falls into the configured
criteria.
The unit scans a
bar code, but
locks up after the
first scan and the
red* LED stays on.
The unit is configured
to support some form
of host handshaking
but is not receiving the
signal.
If the unit is setup to support
ACK/NAK, RTS/CTS, XON/XOFF or
D/E, verify that the host cable and
host are supporting the handshaking
properly.
The unit scans,
but the data
transmitted to the
host is incorrect.
The unit’s data format
does not match the
host system’s
requirements.
Verify that the unit’s data format
matches that required by the host.
Make sure that the unit is connected
to the proper host port.
The print quality of the
bar code is suspect.
Check the print mode. The type of
printer could be the problem.
Change the print settings.
The aspect ratio of the
bar code is out of
tolerance.
i.e. Change to econo mode or
high speed.
The unit beeps at
some bar codes
but NOT for
others of the
same bar code
symbology.
The unit scans
the bar code but
there is no data.
*
28
The bar code may
have been printed
incorrectly.
The unit is not
configured correctly for
the type of bar code
being scanned.
Solution
The scanner defaults to a minimum
of 3 character bar code.
Check if it is a check
digit/character/or border problem.
The minimum symbol
length setting does not
work with the bar code.
Check if the correct minimum
symbol length is set.
The unit’s configuration
is not correct.
Make sure the scanner is configured
for the appropriate mode.
In some custom units the standard green LED has been replaced with a blue LED
and the red LED has been replaced with a white LED.
TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
Symptoms
Possible Causes
Solution
The unit’s configuration
is not correct.
Make sure that the proper PC type
AT, PS2 or XT is selected. Verify
the correct country code and data
format is selected. Adjust the intercharacter delay symptom.
The unit is
transmitting each
character twice.
The unit’s configuration
is not correct.
Increase the interscan code delay
setting. Adjust whether the F0
break is transmitted.
It may be necessary to try this in
both settings.
Alpha characters
show as lower
case.
The computer is in
Caps Lock mode.
Enable the Caps Lock detect feature
of the scanner to detect whether the
PC is operating in Caps Lock.
Everything works
except for a
couple of
characters.
These characters may
not be supported by
that country’s key look
up table.
Try operating the scanner in Alt
mode.
The com port at the
host is not working or
not configured
properly.
Check to make sure that the baud
rate and parity of the scanner and
the communication port match and
that the program is looking for
“RS232” data.
The cable is not
connected to the
proper com port.
Check to make sure that the unit is
connected to the correct com port
on the host device.
The host is
receiving data
but the data does
not look correct.
The scanner and host
may not be configured
for the same interface
parameters.
Check that the scanner and the host
are configured for the same
interface parameters.
Characters are
being dropped.
Inter-character delay
needs to be added to
the transmitted output.
Add some inter-character delay to
the transmitted output by using the
MetroSelect Single-Line
Configuration Guide.
The unit scans
but the data is
not correct.
The unit powersup OK and scans
OK but does not
communicate
properly to the
host.

RS232 DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM
If an RS232 scanner is not communicating with your IBM compatible PC, key in
the following BASIC program to test that the communication port and scanner are
working.
This program is for demonstration purposes only. It is only intended to prove that
cabling is correct, the COM port is working, and the scanner is working. If the bar
code data displays on the screen while using this program, it only demonstrates
that the hardware interface and scanner are working. At this point, investigate
whether the application software and the scanner configuration match.
If the application does not support RS232 scanners, a software wedge program
that will take RS232 data and place it into a keyboard buffer may be needed.
This program tells the PC to ignore RTS-CTS, Data Set Ready (DSR) and Data
Carrier Detect (DCD) signals. If the demonstration program works and yours still
does not, jumper RTS to CTS and Data Terminal Reading (DTR) to DCD and
DSR on the back of your PC.

Caution
Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than those specified
herein may result in hazardous laser light exposure. Under no circumstances should the
customer attempt to service the laser scanner. Never attempt to look at the laser beam, even
if the scanner appears to be nonfunctional. Never open the scanner in an attempt to look into
the device. Doing so could result in hazardous laser light exposure. The use of optical
instruments with the laser equipment will increase eye hazard.
Atención
La modificación de los procedimientos, o la utilización de controles o ajustes distintos de los
especificados aquí, pueden provocar una luz de láser peligrosa. Bajo ninguna
circunstancia el usuario deberá realizar el mantenimiento del láser del escáner. Ni intentar
mirar al haz del láser incluso cuando este no esté operativo. Tampoco deberá abrir el
escáner para examinar el aparato. El hacerlo puede conllevar una exposición peligrosa a la
luz de láser. El uso de instrumentos ópticos con el equipo láser puede incrementar el
riesgo para la vista.
Attention
L'emploi de commandes, réglages ou procédés autres que ceux décrits ici peut entraîner de
graves irradiations. Le client ne doit en aucun cas essayer d'entretenir lui-même le scanner
ou le laser. Ne regardez jamais directement le rayon laser, même si vous croyez que le
scanner est inactif. N'ouvrez jamais le scanner pour regarder dans l'appareil. Ce faisant,
vous vous exposez à une rayonnement laser qú êst hazardous. L'emploi d'appareils
optiques avec cet équipement laser augmente le risque d'endommagement de la vision.
Achtung
Die Verwendung anderer als der hier beschriebenen Steuerungen, Einstellungen oder
Verfahren kann eine gefährliche Laserstrahlung hervorrufen. Der Kunde sollte unter keinen
Umständen versuchen, den Laser-Scanner selbst zu warten. Sehen Sie niemals in den
Laserstrahl, selbst wenn Sie glauben, daß der Scanner nicht aktiv ist. Öffnen Sie niemals
den Scanner, um in das Gerät hineinzusehen. Wenn Sie dies tun, können Sie sich einer
gefährlichen Laserstrahlung aussetzen. Der Einsatz optischer Geräte mit dieser
Laserausrüstung erhöht das Risiko einer Sehschädigung.
Attenzione
L’utilizzo di sistemi di controllo, di regolazioni o di procedimenti diversi da quelli descritti nel
presente Manuale può provocare delle esposizioni a raggi laser rischiose. Il cliente non
deve assolutamente tentare di riparare egli stesso lo scanner laser. Non guardate mai il
raggio laser, anche se credete che lo scanner non sia attivo. Non aprite mai lo scanner per
guardare dentro l’apparecchio. Facendolo potete esporVi ad una esposizione laser
rischiosa. L’uso di apparecchi ottici, equipaggiati con raggi laser, aumenta il rischio di
danni alla vista.
