Chapter 1 Quick Guide
• If the BHT fails to read due to specular effects or other factors, change the
scanning angle of the reading window or the distance from codes as shown
at right, and try it again. (Specular effects occur when the reflection of the
light from the code becomes excessively strong. This can easily happen
when the illumination LED lights codes perpendicularly or due to the angle of
ambient intense lighting to codes.)
• The actual scanning range is narrower than the marker range. The scanning range is approx. 2.4" (6 cm)
wide by 1.6" (4 cm) high when the scanning distance is approx. 3.9" (10 cm).
• Allow only a single code to come within the scanning range. If two or more codes lie within the scanning
range at the same time, the scanner may fail to read or continue reading those codes alternately.
• The scanner can read codes omnidirectionally. Note that a target code plus its margin should lie within the
scanning range.
• The marker range should be used merely as a guide. It does not assure that a code within the marker range
can be read.
• The code reading procedure may differ depending upon the application used, so follow the application’s
manual.
• Before reading labels, clean them if stained.
• Avoid using the BHT in direct sunlight. The BHT might fail to read correctly.
• To read codes on curved surfaces, apply the reading window to the center of each code at a right
angle.
The light intensity of the marker or illumination LED will vary depending upon the scanning
conditions and variation of its elements.

Chapter 2 Getting Started the BHT and System Menu
• Never disassemble or heat the battery cartridge, nor put it into
fire or water; doing so could cause battery-rupture or leakage
of battery fluid, resulting in a fire or bodily injury.
• Do not carry or store the battery cartridge together with
metallic ball-point pens, necklaces, coins, hairpins, etc.
Doing so could short-circuit the terminal pins, causing the
batteries to rupture or the battery fluid to leak, resulting in a
fire or bodily injury.
• Avoid dropping the battery cartridge or letting it undergo any
shock or impact.
Doing so could cause the batteries to break, generate heat,
rupture or burn.
• Never charge the rechargeable battery cartridge where any
inflammable gases may be emitted; doing so could cause fire.
• Do not use batteries or power sources other than the specified
ones; doing so could generate heat or cause malfunction.
• The BHT has an integrated backup power source which backs up the memory and calendar clock in
the BHT when no battery cartridge is loaded or the voltage level of the battery cartridge drops
below the specified level. The backup power source is automatically charged by the battery
cartridge.
When you first load the battery cartridge after purchase or you load it after leaving the BHT unused
for a long time, do not remove the battery cartridge for approx. 48 hours after that loading. This is
for charging the memory backup source integrated in the BHT.
• Avoid storing the rechargeable battery cartridge in a hot place (50°C, 122°F or higher). The battery
capacity may be decreased.
• Do not touch the charge terminals of the rechargeable battery cartridge or stain those terminals.
Doing so could result in a charging failure.
25
Battery Voltage Level on the Status Indicator Line
The battery voltage level is always displayed on the status indicator line.
(For details, refer to Section 2.2.2 "Status Indicators on the LCD.")
Low Battery Indication
Low battery warning
If the battery output voltage drops below a specified lower level limit when the BHT is in operation, the
BHT displays the following message for approx. 2 seconds and beeps three times. After that, it will
resume previous regular operation.
Solution: The battery cartridge will need to be recharged before long. Recharge or replace the battery
cartridge as soon as possible.
Shutdown due to low battery
If you continue to use the BHT without recharge or battery replacement after the message above
appears, the battery output level lowers to the extent the BHT can no longer operate. The BHT displays
the following message, beeps five times, and then turns itself off. Depending upon the battery level, the
message may not appear or the beeper may not sound five times.
Solution: Recharge or replace the battery cartridge.
26
Chapter 2 Getting Started the BHT and System Menu
Grip style BHT
As long as the voltage level of either one of battery cartridges loaded in the BHT body and grip is higher
than the specified level, no low battery messages will appear. If any low battery message appears,
therefore, you need to replace both battery cartridges. Even if you only have one fully-charged
replacement battery cartridge on hand, remove both batteries.
• You may charge the rechargeable battery cartridge with the optional CU-201/221 communication
unit or optional CH-201/251 charger. For the charging procedure using the CU-201/221, refer to
Chapter 5. For that using the CH-201 or CH-251, refer to the "CH-201 User's Manual" or "CH-251
User's Manual."
• If the "Charge the battery!" message appears after the BHT undergoes any shock or impact, turn the
power off and on and then check the battery output level. The battery may not have run out.
Only use the dedicated charger (CU-201/CU-221 or CH-201/
CH-251) for charging the rechargeable battery cartridge.
Using a different type of charger could cause battery-rupture or
leakage of battery fluid and result in a fire, bodily injury, or
serious damage to property.
Never charge a wet or damp rechargeable battery cartridge.
Doing so could cause the batteries to break, generate heat,
rupture or burn.

Battery Replacement Notes
When is battery replacement needed?
If the "Charge the battery!" appears on the LCD, replace the battery cartridge with a fully charged one.
If you leave the BHT without replacing the battery cartridge, then the integrated calendar clock or data
will no longer be backed up so that the calendar clock may stop or the data may be lost.
Grip style BHT
If "Charge the battery!" appears on the LCD when battery cartridges are loaded in both the BHT body
and grip, replace both battery cartridges. (As long as the voltage level of either one of battery cartridges
is higher than the specified level, this warning message will not appear.) Always remove both battery
cartridges, even if you only have one fully-charged replacement battery cartridge on hand.
• Be sure to turn the BHT off before battery replacement.
• Replace the battery cartridge quickly. Load a charged battery cartridge within 3 minutes after the
removal to avoid data loss.
• After battery replacement, turn the BHT on and check its operation.
• If you leave the BHT with no battery cartridge loaded for a long time, the contents of the memory
may no longer be backed up so that the data stored in the BHT may be lost. It is recommended that
important data be saved into the FLASH folder or uploaded to the host PC.
• The battery cartridge will gradually deteriorate during the repeated cycles of charging and
discharging due to its properties. When the battery operation period becomes shortened due to its
deterioration even if it has been charged for the specified hours, replace the battery cartridge with a
new one.
• Use only DENSO WAVE-authorized battery cartridges and chargers.
• Never dispose of battery cartridges into a fire. They should be recycled properly. Do not throw them
in a trash.
• When disposing of the battery cartridge, cover the terminal pins with vinyl tape to prevent
short-circuit.

Mirror image 2D code reading function (REVERSE)
This function makes it possible to read a mirror image 2D code label.
The mirror image 2D code reading is enabled, the time required for reading may increase.
DECODE LEVEL
You may set the decode level. Decreasing the level value increases the code reading efficiency, but the
BHT might misread low-quality codes (split or stained). To the contrary, increasing the level value
decreases the code reading efficiency, but it will diminish the possibility of misreading.
The setting range of the level value is from 1 to 9 and the default is 4
SCAN MODE
You can select the scan mode from the following:
NORMAL: Normal Reader mode
POINT:
Point Scan mode
BARCODE: Barcode Reader mode
Point Scan mode: If you enable the Point scan mode, you can aim a target code by matching up the
center of the marker with that code. If there is no code within the range of the center or the scanner
cannot detect the marker due to the high levels of the lighting, the scanner cannot read anything. The
Point Scan mode takes effect only when the marker is permitted to light.
Barcode Reader mode: If you enable the Barcode Reader mode, you can read a barcode only. The
Barcode Reader mode limits the vertical readable area to 15% at the center portion, as shown below,
and the skew angle within the range of 0° ≤ θ ≤ 6°.
Readable area in the Normal Reader
mode
Readable area in the Barcode Reader
mode (hatched section)
In this mode, the scanning time required is shorter than that in the Normal Reader mode.
However, the scanner cannot read 2D codes or multi-line barcodes.
77
MARKER
You can select the marker ON/OFF mode from the following:
0: Normal mode driven by the trigger switch
1: Marker-ON mode
2: Marker-OFF mode
OPTION DATA
If the Option Data is set ON, the BHT will add option data (containing 2D code model and error correction
level) to the tail of 2D code data when it reads a 2D code.
This setting takes effect not only in the reading test in System Mode but also in any other operations.
Example: If a code read is "QR code, Model 2, Version 5, Error correction level M, and mask number 6,"
then the option data below will follow.
(Data read)… Q2V05M6
Example: If a code read is "PDF417, Error correction level 4, 12 rows and 2 digits," then the option data
below will follow.
(Data read)… Y1041202
Example: If a code read is "MaxiCode and Mode 4," then the option data below will follow.
(Data read)… X4
78
Chapter 2 Getting Started the BHT and System Menu
Example: If a code read is "Data Matrix, Error correction level ECC200, 10 cells wide by 10 cells high," then
the option data below will follow.
(Data read)... Z0200010010
Minimum number of digits to be read for ITF or Codabar
You can set the minimum number of digits to be read for ITF and Codabar.
Setting a small number of digits increases the frequency of digit-missing reading or misreading
depending upon how to scan bar codes or the quality of bar codes. On the other hand, setting a large
number will diminish the possibility of those errors.
The setting range is from 2 to 20 for ITF and from 3 to 20 for Codabar. The default is 4 for ITF and
Codabar.

The QR Code symbology can split data into a maximum of 16 blocks and encodes each of them into a
split QR code image.
When reading split QR codes, the BHT beeps in a different way from usual. That is, when the BHT
reads the first split code, it beeps twice and enters the split code scanning mode. After that, each time
it reads the subsequent split code, it beeps once. If the BHT reads the last split code, it beeps three
times and completes the sequence of split code scanning.
The scanned data will not be displayed on the LCD until a sequence of split code scanning is
completed.
If you scan any non-split QR code midway in a sequence of split code scanning, the BHT displays the
scanned non-split code, cancels the split code scanning mode, and discards those split codes being
scanned. The same occurs also if you release the trigger switch or the split code scanning interval
exceeds approx. 5 seconds.
The scanning order of split QR codes is arbitrary. The same split code will never be double-read.

3.1 Spread Spectrum Communication
3.1.1
Notes for Wireless Operations
The BHT-200QW supports spread spectrum communication.
• If there are too many communications errors, first make sure that the BHT-200QW points directly at an
access point because the 2.4-GHz band requires a more or less straight line path. Note also that the
low-power radio waves have trouble passing through human bodies and other obstacles along that
path.
• This link will not operate properly in the vicinity of microwave ovens, industrial heaters, high-frequency
medical equipment, and other sources of radio waves in the 2.4-GHz band.
• Electromagnetic noise from personal computers, refrigerators, and other home appliances can also
interfere with link operation.
• Environmental factors that can also interfere with link operation include large metallic objects, metallic
dust, or metallic walls in the vicinity of the path and vibration at either end.
To System Designers:
• Before developing the application, make sure that the intended environment is free of the
interference factors above and thus actually capable of supporting link operation.
• Assume that there will be communications failures requiring robust retry capabilities in the
software.
• When introducing the BHT link operation into an environment where equipment using radio waves
in the 2.4-GHz band operates or when introducing such equipment after the introduction of the
BHT link operation, be sure to confirm that the BHT radio link operates properly with all
equipment being in operation beforehand.
• If the environment of the radio communications system is changed after the introduction (e.g.,
newly installed household appliances and movement/addition of shelves or objects), then confirm
that the radio link operates properly again before the actual use.

RF-Related Parameters
User programs command-control wireless communication between the BHT terminals and access
points which are connected each other by a wireless LAN.
For the setting procedure of RF-related parameters, refer to Section 2.5.4, "[3.4] RF Menu (Network
Interface Control)."
„ ESSID (Extended Service Set ID)
An ESSID is an ID that identifies the wireless network. Wireless devices having a same ESSID can
communicate with each other.
„ POWER
This parameter sets the power mode for the wireless module built in the BHT. The following six power
modes are available.
Power mode
Power consuming state
Full
Consumes much power.
Most (Default)
More
Mid
Less
Least
Consumes less power. The BHT may take more time to establish
the wireless link or send response messages.
„ WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)
You can use either one of the two KEYs—OPEN and SHARED KEY to disable and enable the
authentication, respectively. The WEP KEY uses 40-bit (10-digit hexadecimal) or 128-bit (26-digit
hexadecimal) encryption word.
The BHT is able to definitely communicate with access points having the same WEP KEY.
„ WEP KEY
You can set four types of encryption keys (WEP KEY1 through WEP KEY4). If you enable WEP, choose
any one of WEP KEY1 through WEP KEY4 as TRANSMIT KEY.
111
„ TRANSMIT KEY
You need to use the TRANSMIT KEY in order to choose and activate any one of the WEP KEY1 through
WEP KEY4 already defined.
If the size of the WEP KEY specified as a TRANSMIT KEY for the BHT is different from that for the
access point, no communication is possible.
Setting example: Communication is possible
- BHT:

Chapter 3 Communications Operations of BHT-200Q/200QW
3.2 Infrared Communication
The BHT has an integrated infrared (IR) communications device which enables wireless transfer of
programs and data between the BHT and the host PC and between the BHTs, instead of the
conventional wire transfer.
The IR communications device features the following:
• Wireless communications
• Small and lightweight design
• Freedom from the codes/regulations and licenses which differ from country to country, unlike
radio devices
The BHT may communicate with other IrDA-compliant equipment just by aligning their IR ports with each
other. The effective IR range and IR port angle may differ depending upon the target equipment, so
observe the instructions given in manuals furnished with such equipment.
If IR transfer fails, bring the BHT closer to the target station or change the IR port angle, and try
again.
The BHT's IR communications device is IrDA-compliant. IrDA stands for Infrared Data Association,
which has defined hardware (IrDA Serial Infrared Physical Layer Link) and communications protocols for
IR communications.
The BHT's physical layer complies with the IrDA1.2, with a maximum transfer distance of 0.15 m (5.9
inches) and maximum transmission rate of 115.2 kbps per second.

3.4 Basic Communications Specifications
and Ymodem
3.4.1
Basic Communications Specifications
Listed below are the communications specifications when the BHT exchanges data with a host PC
through the CU-200 (IrDA interface).
IrDA Interface
Synchronization
Start-stop
Transmission Speed
2400, 9600, 19200, 38400, 57600, or 115200 bps
Transmission Code
ASCII 8-bit code
Transmission Bit Order
LSB (Least significant bit) first
Vertical Parity
None
„ Synchronization
For accurate data transaction, it is very important to synchronize the transmission between the sender
and receiver. To do this, it is required to previously define the bit order and position, the character length,
and the beginning and end of the character to be transmitted.
The start-stop synchronization is an asynchronous system which synchronizes each character as a unit;
that is, it externally adds start and stop bits to the leading and trailing bit positions of the character to be
transmitted, respectively. A clock starts counting on receiving the start bit and it falls into a
non-communication state on receiving the stop bit. The number of the stop bits is selectable (1 or 2 bits).
„ Transmission Speed
Maximum number of bits to be transmitted per second. Expressed in bps (bits per second).
„ IrDA Interface Communications Range
The IrDA interface's maximum effective range is 15 cm (5.9 inches) with the IR beam within a 10° angle
of divergence.
To communicate via the CU-200, put the BHT on the CU-200.
„ Switching Time between Sending and Receiving on IrDA Interface
The IrDA interface should satisfy the following requirements in switching between sending and
receiving:
(1) Within 10 ms from completion of sending, the IrDA interface should become ready to receive.
(2) After 10 ms or more from completion of receiving, the IrDA interface should start sending.
115
„ Transmission Code and Bit Order
All characters should be coded to 8-bit code for data transmission. The transmission bit order is LSB
(Least significant bit) first.
What follows is an example for transmitting character A (41h, 01000001b) with an even parity and a
single bit each for start and stop bits.
„ Vertical Parity
A vertical parity bit is a redundancy bit which is added to every character to be transmitted in order to
check that data has been transmitted accurately. The parity bit should be set to "1" or "0" depending
upon the parity parameter setting, to make the number of set bits in the character even or odd. The
receiver counts the number of set bits in the transmitted character code to make sure that it has the
selected number (even or odd) of set bits.
The vertical parity bit is positioned immediately following the MSB (Most significant bit) as shown below.
