For most of the scanner parameters, only one read is required to set them to new values.
The scanner will respond with two beeps (low-high tone) when each parameter is set
successfully. Refer to Create One-Scan Setup Barcodes.
But for a number of special parameters, multiple reads are required to complete the
setting. In this case, the scanner will respond with a short beep to indicate it needs to
read more setup barcodes. These special parameters may require reading one or more
setup barcodes, such as
Numeric barcodes, say, for keyboard type, inter-character delay, length qualification
Hexadecimal barcodes, say, for character strings as prefix, suffix, etc.
When “Bluetooth® HID” or “USB HID” is configured for interface, Key Type and Key
Status will then become applicable. Decide whether to change key status when
“Normal Key” is selected for Key Type.
To complete the configuration of these special parameters, it requires reading the
“Validate” barcode, and the scanner will respond with two beeps (low-high tone) to
indicate the input values are validated.

CREATE ONE-SCAN SETUP BARCODES
The fact is most of the scanner parameters require only one read for setting new values.
To facilitate configuring the scanner, you may create One-Scan setup barcodes for use.
1D ONE-SCAN BARCODE
The requirements of a 1D One-Scan setup barcode are:
a prefix of the “#@” characters
the six digits of command parameters
a suffix of the “#”character
For example, the scanner needs the reading of three setup barcodes for the command
parameter “109952” to take effect:
Enter Setup
List Page 3
Update
Now, it requires only one read:
One-Scan Setup Barcode for
109952
Note: The scanner will restart automatically upon reading the One-Scan setup barcode
for (1) changing the interface or (2) setting memory mode, enable or disable. It
will respond with a long beep and its LED will come on-off.

2D ONE-SCAN BARCODE
Users can also scan a single 2D barcode combining with a series of serial commands to
configure the scanner. For example, if you want to change the suffix character to ‘#’, you
will need to input the serial commands in sequence as follows (underlining the digits is to
make them more readable):

1.1.3 AUTO POWER OFF & POWER-SAVING
The scanner will stay active at power-on, which may be followed by a transition from full
CPU speed to low CPU speed (Power-Saving) to auto shutdown (Auto Power Off).
Power-Saving (1~254 min.; 0= Disable): By default, it is set to stand by at full-speed
for 2 minutes before it enters low-speed mode. If this feature is not desired, set it to
0.
Auto Power Off (1~254 min.; 0= Disable): By default, it is set to automatically shut
down after 10 minutes. If this feature is not desired, set it to 0.
Note: 1. The Power-Saving setting will still take effect once a connection has been
established successfully, via Bluetooth® HID or SPP.
2.
There will be a time delay to reactivate 2D scan engine when scanner comes back
from power off mode.
Before establishing a WPAN connection successfully…
1)
The scanner will stay active for a specified period of time (2 minutes by default) for the
following scenarios. Its CPU is running at full speed, and the LED is flashing blue (On/Off ratio
0.5 s: 0.5 s).
(a) waiting for a connection request from the host (Bluetooth® SPP Slave Mode)
(b) trying to connect to the host (Bluetooth® HID or Bluetooth® SPP Master Mode)
(c) trying to connect to 3610
2)
If it fails to connect within 2 minutes, the scanner will become inactive to save power for the
remaining period of time (the specified value minus 2 minutes). Its CPU is running at low
speed, and the LED is flashing red (On/Off ratio 0.3 s: 2.5 s).
Press the [Trigger] key to wake up the scanner when it becomes inactive, and the scanner will
stay active again.
3)
If it fails to connect again and again, and finally stays inactive until the specified time interval
for Auto Power Off has elapsed, the scanner will automatically turn off in order to conserve
battery power.
Hold down the [Power/Delete] key for 2 seconds to turn it on.
Note: For scenarios (a) and (b) in step 1, on your computer you may need to search for

scanned.
For Bluetooth® SPP Slave Mode, the scanner must wait for the host to re-connect.
For Bluetooth® SPP Master Mode, the scanner will resume connection with the host upon
powering on again, as long as the host application is running. The three short beeps will
ring out, tone ascending from low to high. If the scanner fails to resume connection, it will
try every 5 seconds to re-connect to the host unless the “Reset Connection” or “Restore
System Defaults” barcode has been scanned.

1.2 MEMORY
The scanned data can be sent to a host computer immediately via the WPAN connection
or stored in flash memory when the scanner is set to Memory mode.
1.2.1 TRANSMIT BUFFER
By default, the transmit buffer is enabled and ready for use when the scanner is out of
range. Upon reading a barcode successfully within range, the scanner responds with one
short beep (high tone) and its LED indicator becomes solid green and goes off. However,
the host computer may not receive the data immediately if the scanner is out of range.
With the 10 KB transmit buffer, the scanner can ignore the transmission status and keep
on reading barcodes until the buffer is full.
When transmit buffer is enabled…
If the scanner is out of range, it will respond with two short beeps, high-low tone, upon reading a
barcode successfully.
When transmit buffer is full, the scanner will respond with one long beep (low tone) and its LED
indicator will become solid red and go off. You are advised to get back into range.
When transmit buffer is disabled…
If the scanner is out of range, it will respond with one long beep (low tone) and its LED indicator
will become solid red and go off. You are advised to get back into range.
*Enable

Note: The 10 KB transmit buffer on the scanner can hold as many as 640 scans based on
EAN-13 barcodes. Data will be cleared out once the scanner is turned off or
running out of battery power!
1.2.2 MEMORY MODE
When the scanner is in memory mode, it means any real-time connection established
with the host is disabled. 1662/1664 scanner keeps 4MB flash memory for memory mode
operation, which can store over 240,000 scans based on EAN-13 barcodes.

1662/1664 can send data via “Direct USB” interface once the computer has found the USB
connection. Refer to 1.13 Use Direct USB Cable. Because the time-out value is set to 0 by default,
connect the cable before having the scanner read the “Send Data” barcode. Otherwise, the scanner
will try to temporarily resume the previous WPAN connection with the host, if there is any.
During transmission of data collected in memory mode, if the transmission fails, the scanner will
flash red (On/Off ratio 0.2 s: 0.2 s) after responding with two short beeps (high-low tone) and go
back to previous working mode. Press trigger or power key to stop flashing.

1.10 READ REDUNDANCY FOR ALL SYMBLOGIES
Select the level of reading security. For example,
If "No Redundancy" is selected, one successful decoding will make the reading valid
and induce the "READER Event".
If "Two Times" is selected, it will take a total of three consecutive successful decoding
of the same barcode to make the reading valid. The higher the reading security is
(that is, the more redundancy the user selects), the slower the reading speed gets.
It is obvious that the more redundancy selected, the higher the reading security is, and
thus, the slower the reading speed becomes. It has to compromise between reading
security and decoding speed.

The scanner is capable of decoding a mix of UPC/EAN barcodes with and without addons.
The read redundancy (0~30 times) allows changing the number of times to decode a
UPC/EAN barcode before transmission. The more redundancy selected, the higher the
reading security is, and thus, the slower the reading speed becomes.
Note: UPC/EAN Addon 2 and Addon 5 must be enabled individually for this setting to
take effect.

Device Name Broadcasting
The scanner can be configured to hide itself from other devices equipped with Bluetooth® wireless
technology. Simply disable the device name broadcasting setting so that it won’t be discovered by
any other computer or PDA. However, broadcasting must be enabled for establishing an initial
connection with the scanner. For example, disable device name broadcasting after successfully
connecting the scanner to WorkStation1. Such connection will be maintained automatically unless
the scanner is removed from the paired device list (called unpairing) by WorkStation1 or any
changes made to authentication and the PIN code. If you want WorkStation2 to connect to the
scanner, you have to enable device name broadcasting first.

The scanner allows up to 16 characters for a PIN code and provides two options for authentication:
Enable Authentication with Preset PIN
Read the “Use preset PIN” barcode, and change the preset PIN if necessary. This means you will
have to enter exactly the same string for your computer or PDA to connect to the scanner. If the
PIN or passkey is incorrect, any connection attempt will be turned down by the scanner. See
step 8 in 3.2.3 Connect to Dongle.

Macro PDF is a special feature for concatenating multiple PDF barcodes into one file,
known as Macro PDF417 or Macro MicroPDF417.
Note: When printing barcodes, keep each Macro PDF sequence separate, as each has a
unique identifier. Do not mix barcodes from several Macro PDF sequences, even if
they encode the same data. When you scan Macro PDF sequences, scan the entire
Macro PDF sequence without interruption!

By default, there is no prefix code, and [ENTER] or [CR] (Carriage Return) is configured
to be suffix code. Up to 8 characters can be configured, for example, “Barcode_”, and
you will have the string appear in front of the barcode read, like this –
“Barcode_1234567890”.
If “Bluetooth® HID” or “USB HID” is configured for interface, Key Type and Key Status
will then become applicable. You may decide whether or not to apply Key Status
when “Normal Key” is selected for Key Type.

5.6.2 ACTIVATE THE CONCATENATION OF BARCODES
By default, the output sequence editing of the concatenation of barcodes is not applied.
When “Enforce Output Sequence” is enabled, all barcodes read by the scanner must meet
with the criteria for the concatenation. If data is found excluded from all output sequence
sets (= not meeting with the criteria), the scanner will not accept the reading, and
therefore, data will not be transmitted.
When “Apply Output Sequence” is enabled, only barcodes found meeting with the criteria
are counted for the concatenation. Those found not meeting with the criteria are
processed normally and individually.
Note: When it requires reading more barcodes to complete the “output sequence”
requirements, the scanner will respond with one short beep (low tone). After
reading an acceptable barcode, its LED indicator will become solid green and go off
(= Good Read).
Upon completion of reading acceptable barcodes, the scanner will respond with
one short beep (high tone) and its LED indicator will become solid green and go off
(= Good Read).

5.7 REMOVAL OF SPECIAL CHARACTER
You can only specify 1 character, but it will remove every matching character
encountered from the starting position of barcode data until a different character is met.
For example, if it is configured to remove the character “0” (hex value is “30”), one or
more zeros will be stripped off the barcode data “012345” and “00012345”. However, for
barcode data “010333”, only the first zero will be stripped off.
Remove Special
Character
1) Read the barcode above to remove the specified character.
2) Read the “Hexadecimal Value” barcode on page 254 for the desired character string.
For example, read “3” and “0” for the scanner to remove the character “0”.
3) Read the “Validate” barcode to complete this setting.
5.8 AIM CODE ID
You can add an AIM (Automatic Indentification and Mobility) code ID in front of the
barcode that share the common purpose of indentifying, tracking, recording, storing and
communicating essential business, personal, or product data. Enable this function can
provide you with a fast and accurate collection and entry of data.

APPLYING FORMATS FOR DATA EDITING
The scanner allows advanced data editing by applying user-configured editing formats.
The whole processed data can be divided into fields by user-specified rules. These fields
together with the user-configurable additional fields consist of the data actually sent to
the host computer.
For 1662/1664 to apply any editing format, the maximum output data length of a
barcode is 7 KB after configuration. When the data length exceeds 7 KB, editing format
will not take effect.

6.3.2 DATA LENGTH
The length must include prefix, suffix (0x0d by default), length code, etc. By default,
barcodes of any length (character count) are eligible for data editing.
A value from 0 to 254 can be specified.
When zero is given to both, the scanner will not perform the length qualification.
1) Read the barcode below to specify Max. Length or Min. Length separately, and follow
steps 2~3.

6.3.3 MATCHING STRING & LOCATION
By default, no matching string is specified, and therefore, it is disabled. You may enable
this feature by specifying a matching string; up to four characters are allowed.
When the Matching String Location is zero, the scanner will only check for the
existence of the matching string in the barcode data.
Specify a value from 1 to 254 to indicate where the matching string starts in the
barcode data.
1) Read the barcode to specify a matching string.

accordingly. However, only F1~F5 can be configured.
The total number of fields must be specified correctly. If three fields are configured
for the editing format, the data characters after F3 will be assigned to F4
automatically. This feature is quite useful especially when data of variable lengths is
processed by editing formats.

EXAMPLE
Without using the scanner to read the above setup barcodes for configuring the 3610
dongle, run HyperTerminal.exe on the host computer to send serial commands to 3610
via USB Virtual COM.
1) Connect 3610 to the USB port of PC.
2) The Communication LED will indicate when 3610 can accept serial commands after
initializing. Refer to the table below.
If the output interface is USB Virtual COM, run HyperTerminal.exe on the host
computer. While the Communication LED on 3610 is purple (red with flashing blue),
type the serial command within 3 seconds.
If the output interface is USB HID, press the “Num Lock” or “Caps Lock” key via the
keyboard 5 times within 3 seconds while the Communication LED on 3610 is flashing
red and blue. This will change the interface from USB HID to USB Virtual COM and the
Communication LED will become purple (red with flashing blue). Then, run
HyperTerminal.exe on the host computer. While the Communication LED on 3610 is
purple (red with flashing blue), type the serial command within 3 seconds. After
configuring via serial commands, the interface will reset to USB HID after
re-connecting 3610.
