Scanning Bar Codes
Bar Code Scanning with 2D Imager
Scanning bar codes with the 2D imaging device is similar to scanning with a
laser scanner. The operation and configuration of the scanner is performed in
the same way as laser scanning devices. Trigger behavior and scanning timeouts are the same as laser scanning devices.
Scanning Differences
Scanning Aimer
The imager contains an aiming beam rather than a red laser. The aiming beam
mimics a laser line for purposes of orienting the imager to a bar code. Figure
20 shows how the aiming beam visually differs from the laser beam in laser
scanning devices.
Figure 20. Laser vs. Imaging beam
Aiming Beam
Laser
Note that the aiming beam for the imager is green, rather than red.
Orientation
Rotational orientation does not affect the imager module's ability to read bar
codes. For example, the imager can read a bar code when the aimer beam is
parallel to the lines of the bar code. What is important is the location of the
aimer in relation to the center of the bar code. The aiming beam should be
centered over the bar code, but it can be positioned in any direction for a good
read.
Figure 21. Aiming Beam Positioning
Linear bar codes
32
2D Matrix symbol
Falcon® 4400 Series with Windows®CE
Scanning Bar Codes
The aiming beam is smaller when the imager is closer to the code and larger
when it is farther away. Symbologies with smaller bars or elements (mil size)
should be read closer to the unit. Symbologies with larger bars or elements
(mil size) should be read farther from the unit. To scan a label, hold the imager
at an appropriate distance from the target, pull the trigger, and center the aiming beam on the symbol.
Scanning Illumination
Another feature that can be enabled for 2D scanning is an array of illumination LEDs. These LEDs provide illumination in dark environments and can
improve scanning performance under certain lighting conditions. By default,
the illumination LEDs are turned on. Illumination LEDs can be disabled
using the PDT parameters. See the PRG for complete information on programming the LEDs.
OCR Scanning
Optical character recognition (OCR) decodes certain fonts and outputs the
data as a string, in a similar fashion to bar code labels. The Falcon 2D imager
supports the decoding of four OCR fonts. Table 7 gives examples of how these
fonts are printed.

Image Capture
Image Capture
The 2D imager can be used for capturing, manipulating, and transferring
images.
You can set options for image capture in the Imaging Control Panel. Various
image formats can be selected, including TIFF, JPEG and BMP. You can also
scale, rotate, and modify image quality settings. See the PRG for detailed information on using the Falcon 2D for image capture.
Flash Memory
In addition to the RAM-based storage standard on Windows CE terminals,
the Falcon is also equipped with Datalight FlashFX Flash-based application
and file storage area. Refer to the PRG for more information.
The FlashFX storage memory persists across all reset (warm/cold reboot) conditions and software / firmware updates.
Because of this, PSC very strongly recommends installing all applications,
applets, programs, and important data files to the FlashFX disk of the Falcon.
If an application or a data file is only installed or saved in RAM, a hard reset
will result in the loss of that application or data file.
Saving to Flash
To save an application or data to the Flash Memory, from your current application, select File > Save As > navigate to the FlashFX Disk location as described
below.
Flash FX Location

Resetting the Falcon
Resetting the Falcon
There are two reset methods for the Falcon.
•
A warm reset terminates a “hung” application, and clears the working
RAM, but preserves the file system.
•
A cold reset forces all applications to close and clears working RAM
and files not resident on the FlashFX Disk.
PSC recommends that you always attempt a warm reset before initiating a
cold reset. Once you initiate a cold reset, all applications are forcibly closed
and working RAM and files are cleared.
It is a good idea to store important data in FlashFX storage for this reason.
Refer to Flash Memory on page 34 for more information on Flash Memory.
CAUTION
DO NOT use a sharp object on the reset button. Sharp objects can puncture the
keypad, disabling the reset function, rupturing the Falcon’s industrial seal, and
voiding your warranty.

37
Resetting the Falcon
Warm Reset
A warm reset is a transition from the on or idle condition that closes all applications, clears the working RAM, but preserves the file system.
If an application “hangs,” initiate a warm reset to terminate the application.
Procedure to Warm Reset
The reset procedure varies, depending upon the keypad on your Falcon. The
first two keys of the sequence can be pressed in any order, but the unit will not
reset until they both are held down and then the third key (<Bksp> or <F1>) is
pressed. All three keys must be held down for the unit to reset. Refer to Figure
