Restriction On Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive 2002/95/EC
What is RoHS?
The European Union has mandated that high environmental standards be met in the design
and manufacture of electronic and electrical products sold in Europe, to reduce hazardous
substances from entering the environment. The “Restriction on Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS)” prescribes the maximum trace levels of lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, and flame retardants PBB and PBDE that may be contained in a product.
Only products meeting these high environmental standards may be “placed on the market”
in EU member states after July 1, 2006.
RoHS Logo
Although there is no legal requirement to mark RoHS-compliant products, Psion Teklogix
Inc. indicates its compliance with the directive as follows:
The RoHS logo located either on the back of the product or underneath the battery in the
battery compartment (or on a related accessory such as the charger or docking station) signifies that the product is RoHS-compliant as per the EU directive. Other than as noted below,
a Psion Teklogix product that does not have an accompanying RoHS logo signifies that it
was placed on the EU market prior to July 1, 2006, and is thereby exempt from the directive.
Note:
Not all accessories or peripherals will have a RoHS logo due to physical space
limitations or as a result of their exempt status.

Important Operating Instructions
2.4
Important Operating Instructions
Warning: IT IS CRITICAL that this information be reviewed and that any guidelines
applicable to your 8515 be strictly followed.
Backup Battery
The computer backup battery provides one hour of memory backup. The capacity is reduced
as the operating temperature cools. The table below provides a general outline of battery capacity based on the operating temperature. Charging of the backup battery will occur
between 0° C and 40° C.
Note:
If the backup battery temperature is less than 10° C and a brown-out occurs,
the display backlight will switch off in order to maintain computer operations.
The backlight will switch back on when external power is restored or the battery temperature is above 10° C.

Data Transfer Between the 8515 and a PC
2.7
Data Transfer Between the 8515 and a PC
Data transfer options vary slightly depending on the type of operating system installed in
your PC.
For Windows XP SP2 operating systems or earlier, Microsoft® ActiveSync® is PC connectivity software that can be used to connect your 8515 to PCs running this software.
If the Windows Vista® operating system is installed in your PC, ActiveSync is not required
to transfer data between your 8515 and your PC.
By connecting the 8515 to a PC with a cable you can:
•
•
•
2.7.1
View 8515 files from Windows Explorer.
Drag and drop files between the 8515 and the PC in the same way that you would
between PC drives.
Back up 8515 files to the PC, then restore them from the PC to the hand-held again, if
needed, and so on.
Using Microsoft ActiveSync
To install ActiveSync, follow the step-by-step instructions provided with the program’s
setup wizard. Refer to the following website for details:
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/activesync/activesync45.mspx
Note: When you use an RS-232 serial port to connect devices like the 8515 to your desktop
computer, the connection may not succeed because ActiveSync has trouble connecting at non-default baud rates.
To workaround this problem, set the ActiveSync baud rate on the desktop to use the
same baud rate as the device. You can set the baud rate by editing the registry on the
desktop host computer, as detailed in the steps outlined at the following website:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324466
2.7.2
Using Windows Vista
If you have Windows Vista, your 8515 data transfers do not require ActiveSync. To transfer
data between your PC and your 8515:
•
•
Tap on Start>Computer to display the drives. Your 8515 will be visible here.
Open drives, files and folders as you would on your PC.

Psion Teklogix 8515 Vehicle-Mount Computer User Manual
Chapter 3: Getting to Know the 8515
The Internal Backup Battery
3.1
The Internal Backup Battery
The 8515 Vehicle-Mount Computer is equipped with an internal battery that will provide
backup power to the unit for up to 30 seconds of normal operation. The display will be blank
during this time. After 30 seconds, the unit will shut off to preserve the contents of RAM.
The backup battery provides one hour of memory backup. For configuration information,
please see “Power Properties” on page 74; for specifications, see “Internal Lithium-Polymer
Battery” on page 135.
The backup battery is not user accessible. It must be replaced by authorized Psion Teklogix
personnel.
3.2
The Stylus
The stylus is supplied with a holder with double-sided adhesive tape so that it can be attached wherever is most convenient for you.
3.3
The Keyboard
The 8515 provides a 58-key QWERTY or ABC alphanumeric keyboard layout.
Most of the keys on these keyboards operate much like a desktop computer. If a key or key
function is not consistent with the PC keyboard, the differences are noted.
Note:
3.3.1
A soft keyboard that is a replica of the external keyboard is available. Refer to
“Input Panel” on page 60 for details.
Modifier Keys
The [SHIFT], [CTRL], [ALT], [BLUE] ad [ORANGE] keys are modifier keys. Pressing a
modifier key changes the function of the next key pressed. For example, a square bracket is
printed in orange print above the [4] key. Pressing the [ORANGE] key followed by the [4]
key displays a square bracket rather than the number 4.
Psion Teklogix 8515 Vehicle-Mount Computer User Manual
21
Chapter 3: Getting to Know the 8515
The Keys
The [SHIFT], [CTRL] and [ALT] keys operate much like a desktop keyboard except that
they are not chorded (two keys held down simultaneously). The modifier key must be
pressed first followed by the key whose function you want modified.
3.3.1.1
Activating Modifier Keys
When a modifier key is pressed once, it is displayed in lowercase letters in the taskbar at the
bottom of the 8515 screen. For example, if the [CTRL] key is pressed, ctrl key is displayed at the bottom of the unit screen. Once another key is pressed, the modifier key
becomes inactive and disappears from the taskbar.
3.3.1.2
Locking Modifier Keys
When a modifier key is pressed twice, it is ‘locked’ on. A ‘locked’ modifier key is displayed
in uppercase letters in the taskbar. For example, pressing the [BLUE] key twice locks it
on—it is displayed as BLUE KEY in the taskbar at the bottom of the computer screen.
The locked modifier key will remain active until it is pressed a third time to unlock or turn it
off. Once a modifier key is unlocked (pressed a third time), the uppercase representation at
the bottom of the screen is no longer displayed.
Note:
3.3.2
The locking function of modifier keys can be disabled so that pressing a modifier key once will lock the key ‘on’. If you disable the ‘One Shot’ function of
these keys, pressing a modifier key once will lock it ‘on’. Pressing the same
key a second time will unlock or turn it ‘off’. Refer to “One Shots” on page 64
for details.
The Keys
The [BLUE] and [ORANGE] Keys
The [BLUE] and [ORANGE] modifier keys provide access to additional symbols and keys.
These additional symbols and keys are colour coded in blue and orange print above the keyboard keys.
Press the [BLUE] key to access functions or characters displayed in blue print on the keyboard. Press the [ORANGE] key to access functions or characters displayed in orange print
on the keyboard.
The [SHIFT/CAPS] Key
The [SHIFT/CAPS] key is used to display uppercase alpha characters. Pressing
[BLUE][SHIFT] turns the [CAPS] key on so that all alpha characters are printed in uppercase until the [BLUE][SHIFT] sequence is pressed again.

Chapter 3: Getting to Know the 8515
The Keys
The Arrow Keys
The Arrow keys move the cursor around the screen in the direction of the arrow—up, down,
left and right. The cursor is the flashing box or underline character that indicates where the
next character you type will appear.
The [INS] Key
The [INS] key inserts a character at the cursor position.
The [DEL] Key
The [DEL] key erases the character at the cursor position.
The [BKSP] Key
The [BKSP] key (sometimes referred to as destructive backspace) moves the cursor one
character to the left, erasing the incorrectly entered key stroke.
The [CTRL] and [ALT] Key
The [CTRL] and [ALT] keys modify the function of the next key pressed and are application
dependent.
The [TAB] Key
Typically, the [TAB] key moves the cursor to the next field to the right or downward.
The [ESC] Key
Generally, this key is used as a keyboard shortcut to close the current menu, dialog box or
activity and return to the previous one.
The [SPACE] Key
Pressing this key inserts a blank space between characters. In a Windows dialog box, pressing the [SPACE] key enables or disables a checkbox.
The [HOME] Key
The [HOME] key moves the cursor to the top of the form or page.
The [END] Key
The [END] key moves the cursor to the bottom of the form or page.
The [PgUp] and [PgDn] Keys
The [PgUp] key displays the previous screen of information. The [PgDn] key displays the
next screen of information.

Scanning
Decoded scanners must be configured by scanning special configuration bar codes. In these
cases, the scanner manufacturer provides programming manuals for configuration purposes.
The 8515 supports a variety of one dimensional (1D) scanners and two dimensional (2D)
laser and imager scanners. “Scanning Techniques” outlines the mechanics of a successful
scan. In addition, “Troubleshooting” on page 28 provides some helpful suggestions should
the scan fail.
3.7.1
Scanning Techniques
Note:
•
•
External scanners can be connected to the 8515 serial or USB device port.
Hold the scanner at an angle. Do not hold it perpendicular to the bar code.
Do not hold the scanner directly over the bar code. In this position, light can reflect back
into the scanner’s exit window and prevent a successful decode.

Scan LED Indicators
•
•
•
•
•
3.7.2
Scan the entire bar code. If you are using a 1D or 2D scanner, make certain that the scan
beam crosses every bar and space on the bar code, including the margins on either end
of the symbol.
If you are using a 2D imaging scanner, make certain the red, oval-shaped framing mark
is centered within the bar code you want to scan.
When using imaging scanners, do not move the scanner while decoding the bar code.
Movement blurs the image.
Hold the scanner farther away for larger bar codes.
Hold the scanner closer for bar codes with bars that are close together.
Scan LED Indicators
External scanners have integrated LED indicators that are not controlled by the 8515.
3.7.3
Troubleshooting
If the scanner is not working, investigate the following:

•
3.7.4
Operating One Dimensional (1D) Laser Scanners
•
•
3.7.5
Is the 8515 on?
Check that the scanner settings are correctly configured (see “Scanner Settings” on page
87).
Check the bar code to make sure it is not damaged. Try scanning a different bar code to
verify that the problem is not with the bar code.
Check that the bar code is within the proper range.
Does the computer display the warning without scanning? This suggests a hardware
problem in the 8515.
Is the laser beam scanning across the bar code?
Once the scan beam has stopped, check the scanner window for dirt or fogging.
Turn the 8515 on. Wait until the unit has booted up completely.
Aim at the bar code and press the trigger. A scan beam and a warning indicator appear
until a successful decode is achieved or six seconds have elapsed.
Operating PDF Laser Scanners
This scanner decodes PDF417 two-dimensional bar codes.
•

Monitoring the Network Connection
•
3.8
Aim at the bar code and press the trigger. The beam expands into a rectangle covering
the bar code to properly scan it. The scan beam and a warning indicator are visible until
a successful decode is achieved or three seconds have elapsed.
Monitoring the Network Connection
If your computer is equipped with a wireless LAN radio, it will typically associate with the
nearest access point. The radio signal quality meter in the taskbar indicates the relative
strength of the communication link. To access the radio signal icon from the keyboard:
•
Tap on the radio icon in the taskbar to display the Wireless Statistics dialog box.
Note:
Moving in and out of the radio coverage area can have varying effects on a
network session. At times, you may need to renew your connection by logging
in again.
3.9
General Maintenance
3.9.1
Ports
Remember to always install the dust caps on unused ports.
3.9.2
Caring for the Touchscreen
The top of the touchscreen is a thin, flexible polyester plastic sheet with a conductive
coating on the inside. The polyester can be permanently damaged by harsh chemicals and is
susceptible to abrasions and scratches. Using sharp objects on the touchscreen can scratch or
cut the plastic, or crack the internal conductive coating.
If the touchscreen is used in harsh environments, consider applying a disposable screen protector. These covers reduce the clarity of the display slightly but will dramatically extend the
useful life of the touchscreen. When they become scratched and abraded, they are easily
removed and replaced.
The chemicals listed below must not come into contact with the touchscreen:
•
•
•
•
•
mustard, ketchup,
sodium hydroxide,
concentrated caustic solutions,
benzyl alcohol, and
concentrated acids.

If your touchscreen is not enabled, you can use the System Tray option to access the icons in
the taskbar at the bottom of the screen. The taskbar displays indicators such as a radio signal
icon and the security level. Highlighting a taskbar icon allows you to display a tooltip—a
short description of the status of the icon, or to display the Control Panel dialog box associated with the icon.
• Choose System Tray from the Shortcuts Start Menu.
When System Tray is chosen, you can access the taskbar icons using the arrow keys.
•
•
Press the [LEFT] and [RIGHT] arrow keys to highlight the icon in the taskbar about
which you’d like more information—a tooltip is displayed as each taskbar icon
is highlighted.
To display the Control Panel dialog box associated with the highlighted icon, press
[ENTER].
Cycle Tasks
When Cycle Tasks is selected (and the Task Manager is not open), you can cycle through
active applications. To choose this option:
•
Choose Cycle Tasks from the Shortcuts menu, or
Press [ALT] [TAB].
The Task Manager
The Task Manager option allows you to switch to another task or to end an active task. To
display the task manager window:
•
Choose Task Manager in the Start Menu, or
Press [ALT] [ESC].

Control Panel
The Control Panel contains applets used to configure hardware, the operating system and
the shell. If your 8515 is running with the Psion Teklogix Tekterm application or another application, additional configuration applets may appear in the Control Panel.
Network and Dial-Up Connections
The Network and Dial-up Connections window allows you to configure an 802.11 radio or
execute an existing configuration. Refer to “Summit Client Utility (SCU) for 802.11b/g
Radio” on page 12 for radio setup details.
Taskbar and Start Menu
The Taskbar and Start Menu option displays a dialog box in which you can customize the
taskbar, selecting the icons that will be displayed. Refer to “Customizing the Taskbar” on
page 37 for additional details about this option.
4.4.6
Run
Choosing the Run option from the Start Menu displays a dialog box in which you can enter
the name of the program, folder or document you want to open or launch.

Shutdown
Choosing Shutdown displays a sub-menu of options, including Suspend, Warm Reset and
Cold Reset.
Figure 4.13 Shutdown Menu
Note:
This menu varies slightly depending on the security level chosen. When the
8515 is set to User level, the Shutdown option is replaced by Suspend. A submenu is not available.
At Teklogix security level, an additional option is available in the submenu—Bootloader. This option behaves like cold-reset, except that the 8515
starts Bootloader rather than Windows Embedded CE 5.0.
Suspend
The Suspend option suspends the 8515 immediately—this is equivalent to turning the
computer off.

Using a Dialog Box
Warm Reset
The Warm Reset option resets the 8515, leaving all saved files and (registry) settings intact.
Any unsaved data is lost.
Cold Reset
The Cold Reset option resets the 8515. Any files not stored in permanent memory are lost.
However, the registry settings are saved.

Using a Dialog Box
A dialog box (like those in the sample screens in Figure 4.14 on page 45) appears when you
need to make selections and enter further information.
Note:
A dialog box item that is displayed in grey text indicates that it is not
currently available.

Using a Dialog Box
Note:
If you’re using the touchscreen, use the stylus to tap on an element in a dialog
box to select or deselect it, display dropdown menus, save your selections, etc.
If you’re using a keyboard, follow the directions below.
Dialog boxes contain one or more of the following elements:
Tab: A tab separates different elements of a dialog box. Tap on a tab to display the associated information.
Textbox: A textbox requires that you type information. Highlight the textbox with the stylus
and then type the appropriate information.
Dropdown: This type of menu is identified by up and down arrows next to the dropdown
menu to indicate that additional options are available. Tap the stylus on the arrow to display
the options in the menu.
Checkbox: This box allows you to select or deselect an option. To select or deselect a
checkbox, tap the stylus on the checkbox to select or deselect it.
Radio buttons: These buttons allow you to choose from a number of options. For example,
in the second sample screen in Figure 4.14 on page 45 you can choose to ‘Obtain an IP
address via DHCP’ or ‘Specify an IP address’. Tap the stylus on the button to select or deselect it.
Buttons: This type of button allows you to ‘Save’, ‘Delete’, etc., the options you’ve chosen
in a dialog box. Tap the stylus on the button to activate it.
Saving Your Choices: Once you’ve made all your changes, tap on OK to save your
changes and exit the window.

Scancode Remapping
A scancode is a number that is associated with a physical key on a keyboard. Every key has
a unique scancode that is mapped to a virtual key, a function or a macro. Scancode Remapping allows you to change the functionality of any key on the keyboard. A key can be remapped to send a virtual key (e.g. VK_F represents the ‘F’ key; VK_RETURN represents
the [ENTER/ON] key, etc.), perform a function (e.g. turn the scanner on, change volume/contrast, etc.) or run a macro.
There are three different tables of scancode mappings: the Normal table, the Orange table
and the Blue table. The Normal table defines unmodified key presses; the Orange table
68
Psion Teklogix 8515 Vehicle-Mount Computer User Manual
Chapter 5: Configuration

defines key presses that occur when the [ORANGE] modifier is on; the Blue table defines
key presses that occur when the [BLUE] modifier is on. The default mappings of these scancodes can be overwritten for each of these three tables using the Scancode Remapping tab
accessed from the Keyboard Properties dialog box.
Figure 5.18 Scancode Remapping Tab
The first column in the Scancode Remapping tab displays the Scancodes in hexidecimal. If
the scancode is remapped to a virtual key, that virtual key is displayed in the next column labelled ‘V-Key’. A virtual key that is ‘Shifted’ or ‘Unshifted’ is displayed in the third column
labelled ‘Function’.
If the scancode is remapped to a function or a macro, the first and second columns remain
blank while the third column contains the function name or macro key number (for example,
Macro 2).

Trigger Mappings
A trigger mapping is an association between a particular key on the keyboard and a driver or
application, the “owner(s)” of the trigger source. When the specified key is pressed, the
owner (for example, a decoded scanner) is sent a message.
Important: It is not possible to have two or more identical mappings—for example [F1]
cannot be mapped to the Decoded Scanner twice—even if the trigger type
is different.
A keyboard key that is used as a trigger source will no longer generate key
data, or perform its normal function. For example, if the space button is
used as a trigger source, it will not be able to send space characters
to applications.
Double-Click
When a key is pressed and released, then pressed again within the configured time (between
0 to 1000 milliseconds), a double-click occurs. See also “Trigger Type” on page 74.

Trigger Type
You can enable either an Up/Down or Double Click response to a trigger press. Normally,
when a trigger (keyboard key, etc.) is pressed and released, a “trigger down” event is sent to
the “owner”—that is, the application receiving the trigger press information followed by a
“trigger up”. If Double Click is chosen in this menu, when the trigger is pressed, released,
and then pressed again, a “double-click” event is generated. If a mapping with the type
Up/down has also been configured for the same source, it will only receive the first set of
trigger events.

Bluetooth Setup
Bluetooth is a global standard for wireless connectivity for digital devices and is intended
for Personal Area Networks (PAN). The technology is based on a short-range radio link that
operates in the ISM band at 2.4 GHz. When two Bluetooth-equipped devices come within a
2 meter range of each other, they can establish a connection. Because Bluetooth utilizes a
radio-based link, it does not require a line-of-sight connection in order to communicate.
Note:
•
The Bluetooth radio uses an internal antenna.
In the Control Panel, choose the Bluetooth Devices icon to display the Bluetooth
Manager screen.

with Name, Address, Active status, and PIN information.
Note:
During the scanning process, addresses are located first, followed by names.
Only the names of devices that are within the Bluetooth radio coverage range
will be retrieved.
The Active column indicates whether any service is activated for that device. When a
service is activated, the device is displayed in the list even when it is not detected during
the scan.
The PIN column indicates whether you have a PIN (password) set for the device.

Services
A discovered device may display several service profiles that it can use to communicate, and
you will want to activate the type you need. Supported profiles that can be activated include:
DUN (Dial-Up Networking service), Printer (serial service), and LANPPP (LANAccessUsingPPP service). ASync (ActiveSync) is another available profile.
•
To start the service scan, highlight a device in the Devices tab list, and then click on the
Services button or double-click on the device entry.
Note:
If the remote device is out of reach or turned off, it can take considerable time
for the Services dialog box to appear—it may appear to be frozen.
Once the device’s service profiles are displayed in the Services list box:
• Highlight the service to be activated.
• Press [SPACE] or right-click to display the Activation menu.
The Activation menu contains four options—Activate, Authenticate, Outgoing and Encrypt.
Once the service is successfully activated, the assigned port (if applicable) will appear in the
Port column of the Services list box. You can choose to use BSP or COM as the port name.
BSP is the latest Microsoft Bluetooth stack standard, but older applications assume serial
ports are COM. When using COM as the port name, the Bluetooth manager will try to find
and use a free port between COM7 and COM9. When using BSP as the port name, BSP2 to
BSP9 are available for use. The port is available as soon as it is activated.
Note:
The CH column shows the RFCOMM channel of the service if the service is
RFCOMM-based. This information is not generally needed except for debugging purposes.
To add a service to the Outgoing port, an active service must first be deactivated. Then you
can choose the ‘Outgoing’ option from the Activation menu (highlight a service, right-click
or press the [SPACE] bar to display the Activation menu).
The Authentication and Encryption options can be changed only before activation. To
change these after activation, deactivate the service first, then change the options.
Once a service is activated, all the information regarding the service, including the
RFCOMM channel number, is saved in the registry. (Some remote devices may change their
RFCOMM channel numbers when they reboot, so your saved setting may not work when
the remote device is rebooted. In that case, you must deactivate the service and reactivate it
to detect the current RFCOMM channel.)

Double Click
Click Time (msec)
This parameter controls the maximum gap time (in milliseconds) for a double-click.
If the time between the first and second clicks of the scanner trigger is within this time, it is
considered a double-click. The allowable range is 0 to 1000. A value of zero disables
this feature.
A double-click produces different results depending on whether or not a value is assigned in
the ‘Click Data’ parameter. When a value is not assigned for the ‘Click Data’, double-clicking the scanner trigger overrides the target dot delay set in the ‘Dot Time’ parameter and initiates a normal scan sweep. If a value is assigned for the ‘Click Data’ parameter, doubleclicking the scanner trigger inserts the ‘Click Data’ value rather than initiating a scan.
Click Data
This parameter determines which character is sent to the application installed in your 8515
following a double-click. A dialog box appears, asking that you press the key you want to
insert. The ASCII/Unicode key value of the keypress is displayed.
Pressing the [ESC] key in this dialog box resets the data to zero.

Scan Result Time (sec)
The value assigned to the ‘Scan Result Time (sec)’ parameter determines how long the scan
results of a successful scan are displayed on the screen. Time is measured in seconds, and a
value of ‘0’ (zero) disables the parameter. When you choose this option, a dialog box
appears where you can enter a value.
Note:
To remove the scan result from the screen before the “Result Time” has
expired, point the scanner away from the bar code and press the trigger.
Good Scan Beep and Bad Scan Beep
These parameters determine whether or not the computer emits an audible scanner ‘beep’
when a good (successful) scan or a bad (unsuccessful) scan is performed. Set these parameters to either on to enable the beeper or off to disable it.
Soft Scan Timeout
This parameter is used by the SDK ‘Scan’ function (soft-scan: starting a scan session via the
SDK function rather than through a physical trigger press). The value assigned to this parameter determines the soft-scan timeout from 1 to 10 sec. (default is 3 sec.).
Scan Log File
If this parameter is enabled, the input bar code and the modified/translated output bar code
are logged in the file \Flash Disk\ScanLog.txt. Keep in mind that if this parameter is enabled, there is a slight performance effect when performing multiple scans because the log
file is written to persistent storage.

Add barcode prefix/suffix—adds a global prefix or suffix.
Verify barcode size—verifies the bar code size. This rule should generally be assigned
first, before creating subsequent rules.
Search and replace—replaces all instances of the match string. (Note that this rule
cannot fail.)
Note:
Keep in mind that the effects of previously applied rules must be taken into
account when creating subsequent rules. For example, if the bar code size is
important, it should be checked before any rules that might change the size
are applied.
Translation information about the status of each case/rule is displayed in the scan log file, if
enabled (see “Scan Log File” on page 89). This is useful if a case fails, and you are trying to

5.12.1.4 Radio Features
AP Density
This option allows you to determine the signal strength at which the 8515 radio will begin
searching for a new Access Point (AP): High, Medium or Low. If, for example, this option is
set to High, the radio will begin searching for a new Access Point while still at a fairly strong
signal strength. Setting AP Density to Low will cause the radio to wait until the signal
strength is significantly low before attempting to connect to another Access Point.
Depending on your site configuration—for example, the shelving, the Access Point coverage, etc.—a higher setting may improve through-put, increase and maintain signal strength,
and reduce missed transmissions.
Radio Power Management
When this option is enabled, access points that support it will use Radio Power Management
guidelines to control the client (8515) radio. Access points determine how often the 8515
radio enters sleep mode when no activity is detected to reduce power consumption on the
client side. Another benefit is that when Radio Power Management is enabled, even when
no activity is detected, the access point does not disassociate the 8515 (client).

6.1
External Bar Code Readers
The 8515 supports these external decoded scanner types:
• 1D Scanner.
• 2D Standard Range Raster Laser Scanner (PDF417).
• 2D Imager.
• RFID Scanner.
To connect a scanner to the 8515, attach the device to either the UART or USB port. Please
refer to the scanner-specific programming manual provided by the manufacturer before
you begin.
6.1.1
Entering Data with the Bar Code Reader
Note:
For helpful scanning tips, refer to “Scanning Techniques” on page 27.
When a label is scanned successfully, the 8515 will beep if configured appropriately and the
scan icon will be displayed on the screen. Occasionally, the bar code labels are poorly
printed or damaged and cannot be read properly. In this case, use the keyboard to enter data
from the label.
6.2
Bluetooth Peripherals
All 8515 Vehicle-Mount Computers are equipped with Bluetooth radios, making it is possible to communicate with a variety of Bluetooth peripherals, including scanners, printers, etc.
The range of the Bluetooth radio in the 8515 is limited to between 2–5 meters.
Keep in mind that Bluetooth and IEEE 802.11g radios both operate in the 2.4GHz band. Although the 8515 includes features to minimize interference, performance of the system will
not be optimal if you use both radios simultaneously. Typically, when both radios operate in
the 8515 at the same time, they cannot transmit simultaneously—this has a negative impact
on overall system throughput. To minimize the impact on the backbone 802.11g network,
Psion Teklogix recommends using Bluetooth peripherals that have low transaction rates
(such as printers and scanners).
Bluetooth peripherals are configured using the Bluetooth control panel applet. Refer to
“Scanner Settings” on page 87 for information about setting up your Bluetooth devices for
communication. In addition, review the manual shipped with your Bluetooth device to determine the method used to associate with the 8515 host.

Insert the adaptor’s USB connector into the Host USB port on the 8515.
Connect your network Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on the adaptor cable.
Network Access
The 8515 automatically loads the appropriate drivers to communicate with the USB-Ethernet converters.
Network Addressing
The host application uses standard TCP/IP protocol to name, locate, and communicate with
a specific 8515 on the network.
If a link is established between an 8515 and a host, the application on the host and on the
computer must have a recovery mechanism in the event that the 8515 is disconnected, interrupting the link.

Psion Teklogix 8515 Vehicle-Mount Computer User Manual
Chapter 6: Peripheral Devices & 8515 Installations
8515 Mounting Accessories: Installing the RAM Mounting Kit
Warning: Failure to install the mount correctly, or modifications to the mount, may
result in serious injury or damage to property. Contact Psion Teklogix Technical Support or your Psion Teklogix representative if you have problems
installing this mount. To ensure operator safety, you must use a calibrated
torque wrench and the supplied mounting hardware when fastening the
cradle and mount. Use of this mount in vehicles driven on public roads or
highways is prohibited. Contact Psion Teklogix for further details.
Before mounting an 8515 in a vehicle, there are a number of operator safety
issues that require careful attention. When mounting an 8515 use only
approved Psion Teklogix mounting hardware and mounting parts which are
specific to the 8515 model purchased. An improperly mounted 8515 or use of
non-approved parts may result in one or more of the following: operator
injury, property damage, operator visibility obstruction, operator distraction,
and/or poor ease of egress for the operator. Psion Teklogix strongly recommends that you seek professional mounting advice from the
vehicle manufacturer.
If it is necessary to mount the 8515 overhead, or in any position that could
cause injury to the operator should the unit fall, it is critical that a secondary
tether or other failsafe device be installed.
The following restrictions must be strictly enforced:
• Do not use the mount and/or the 8515 as a hand-hold. Using the mount
in this manner may cause the person to fall or dislodge the mounting
hardware and/or mounts.
• Do not add weight or attach any other items to the mount or 8515. Additional elements may fall causing injury, or may increase the chance of
failure and/or damage in mounting hardware and/or mounts.
Mounts used in industrial or vibration generating environments may be subjected to fatigue, stress, and/or part wear. A periodic inspection of the mounting hardware and mounts should be performed to ensure parts are
retightened to the correct torque, free of fractures, excessive wear, and/or
other environmental damage. Any parts found to be unsafe should be
removed and replaced immediately. After inspection or replacement of parts,
readjust the mount as outlined in step 4 below and tighten with the approved
tightening tool (P/N 9000594).
Cable routing within a vehicle cab also requires careful consideration, especially for separately connected scanners and other devices with loose cables.
If you are unable to obtain suitable advice, contact Psion Teklogix for assist-

Use of the Powered Fork Lift Cradle while charging the fork truck battery
is prohibited.
Important: Safeguards
To avoid possible injury, this device must be properly secured when in a
moving vehicle.
Keep this device away from magnetic fields.

Chapter 6: Peripheral Devices & 8515 Installations
Preparation
Important: The tilt and rotation of the cradle can be easily adjusted by the operator.
Ensure that if the handscrew is loosened and the cradle slips, the operator
and any equipment cannot be damaged by it. Also note that under extreme
vibration, the mount may slowly ‘settle’, requiring readjustment and tightening of the handscrew. Psion Teklogix offers a tightening tool (P/N
9000594) which can be used to minimize settling.
Figure 6.5 Tightening Tool P/N 9000594
The mounting platform on which you secure the computer must be strong enough to support
25 kg. Never attach the mount to a plastic dash or a wooden platform without the appropriate backing plate and bracing. When selecting a mounting location, you must provide the
operator access at the top, bottom, and sides.

6.6.1
Wiring Guidelines
Before installing cables between the computer and other devices, consider the following:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Ensure the vehicle body and underlying wiring is not damaged while drilling
mounting holes.
Protect cable runs from pinching, overheating, and physical damage.
Use grommets to protect cables that pass through metal.
Use plastic straps and tie-downs to secure cables and connectors in their desired location, away from areas where they may get snagged or pulled.
Keep the cables away from heat sources, grease, battery acid, and other
potential hazards.
Keep the cables away from control pedals and other moving parts that may pull on the
cables or interfere with the operation of the vehicle.
Leave enough slack on the cables so that the computer can be removed easily
for maintenance.
Note:
6.6.2
Make sure the cables run inside the roll cage of the vehicle.
Non-Vehicle Installations
Using AC power, the 8515 Vehicle-Mount Computer can be mounted at fixed locations adjacent to cross-dock doors, manufacturing stations, or in offices.
The 110/220V Psion Teklogix AC adaptor Model PS1400 should be used to power the computer from an AC source.
6.6.3
Wiring Vehicle Power to the 8515
Warning: The 8515 accepts DC power sources between a minimum of 10VDC and a
maximum of 30VDC. A Power Pre-regulator is required for voltages above
30VDC.
Applying a voltage above 30VDC without the pre-regulator or reversing
polarity may result in permanent damage to the 8515 and will void the
product warranty.
A 1.8 meter (6 ft.) extension power cable (P/N 13985-302 or P/N 13985-303 with screenblanking sensor) is supplied with your 8515. This cable should be wired to a filtered, fused
Psion Teklogix 8515 Vehicle-Mount Computer User Manual
127
Chapter 6: Peripheral Devices & 8515 Installations
Wiring Vehicle Power to the 8515
(maximum 6A) accessory supply on the vehicle. When connecting a power pre-regulator to
a vehicle, please follow the instructions in the installation sheet (P/N 16435) supplied with
the extension cable.
The 8515 draws no more than 6A (less if the accessory supply is greater than 12V). Any additional wiring (minimum 18 gauge), connectors or disconnects used should be rated for at
least 90 VDC, 10A.
The red lead of the power cable attaches to the positive vehicle supply. The black lead connects to the negative supply—this should be connected to a proper terminal block and not to
the vehicle body. The 8515 is fully isolated and can be used with both negative and positive
chassis vehicles.
You may have the option of connecting power before or after the ‘key’ switch. It is preferable to wire the 8515 after the key switch—that is, the 8515 cannot be switched on without
turning the vehicle key on.
If an unfused power source must be used, a fuse assembly (P/N 19440-300) must be added
to the extension power cable (the fuse and instructions are supplied with the cable). Use only
a 6A slow blow UL approved fuse in the fuse assembly. The fuse assembly must be located
as close as practical to the DC supply, and shall connect to the positive side of the
DC supply.
6.6.3.1
Installing the Power Pre-regulator
1. Attach the pre-regulator cable with male connector to the Psion Teklogix extension
power cable P/N 13985-302, which has been installed on the vehicle.
Important: The Psion Teklogix extension power cable P/N 13985-302 positive lead is
red and the negative lead is black.
It is recommended that all connections be secured with electrical tape or
heat shrink to prevent contaminants from degrading the connection.
2. Next, connect the pre-regulator cable with female connector either directly to the
8515 power cable, or to the extension power cable P/N 13985-303 (for screen
blanking option) (see Figure 6.12 — ‘With Power Pre-regulator’).

When installing the 8515 on systems operating on 24 Volts and above, the
diode assembly (supplied with the extension power cable 13985) should be
used to reduce the AC ripple produced by the system.
To connect the diode, push the male connector on the diode assembly into the
female connector on the positive (red) lead of the power cable. If the fuse
assembly is already installed, connect the diode assembly to the fuse assembly
as described in the previous sentence. Connect the red wire from the diode
assembly to a fused power source on the system.
It is recommended that all connections be secured with electrical tape or heat
shrink to prevent contaminants from degrading the connection.

B.1.2.1 SCU Security Capabilities
The SCU provides integrated security to protect transmitted data as well as the 8515 and
wireless WAN infrastructure that transmit and receive data.
A foundational element of the IEEE 802.11i WLAN security standard is IEEE 802.1X and a
critical application on a mobile device is an 802.1X supplicant. This supplicant provides an
interface between the radio and the operating system and supports the authentication and encryption elements required for 802.11i, also known as Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2), as
well as predecessors such as WPA and WEP. Summit software includes an integrated supplicant that supports a broad range of security capabilities, including:
•
802.1X authentication using pre-shared keys or an EAP type, required for WPA2 and
WPA.
• Data encryption and decryption using WPA2 AES, WPA TKIP or WEP.
Common EAP types include:
•
B-6
EAP-TLS: Uses the same technology as a follow-on to Secure Socket Layer (SSL). It
provides strong security, but relies on client certificates for user authentication.
Psion Teklogix 8515 Vehicle-Mount Computer User Manual
Appendix B: SCU for 802.11b/g Radio
Profile
•
PEAP: Provides secure user authentication by using a TLS tunnel to encrypt EAP traffic. Two different inner methods are used with PEAP:
- EAP-MSCHAPV2, resulting in PEAP-MSCHAP: This is appropriate for use against
Windows Active Directory and domains.
- EAP-GTC, resulting in PEAP-GTC: This is for authentication with one-time passwords (OTPs) against OTP databases such as SecureID.
•
•
LEAP: Is an authentication method for use with Cisco WLAN access points. LEAP
does not require the use of server or client certificates. LEAP supports Windows Active
Directory and domains but requires the use of strong passwords to avoid vulnerability to
offline dictionary attacks.
EAP-FAST: Is a successor to LEAP and does not require strong passwords to protect
against offline dictionary attacks. Like LEAP, EAP-FAST does not require the use of
server or client certificates and supports Windows Active Directory and domains.
Note:
PEAP and EAP-TLS require the use of Windows facilities for the configuration of digital certificates.
B.1.2.2 SCU EAP Types
The following EAP types are supported by the integrated supplicant and can be configured
in SCU: LEAP, EAP-FAST, PEAP-MSCHAP, PEAP-GTC, and EAP_TLS. With each of
these types, if authentication credentials are not stored in the profile, you will be prompted
to enter credentials the first time the radio attempts to associate to an access point that supports 802.1X (EAP).
•
•
•
LEAP: Strong passwords are recommended.
EAP-FAST: SCU supports automatic, not manual, PAC provisioning.
PEAP-MSCHAP: Provides secure user authentication by using a TLS tunnel to
encrypt EAP traffic. MSCHAP is used as the inner authentication method. This is
appropriate for use against Windows Active Directory and domains.
• PEAP-GTC: SCU supports static (login) passwords only.
• EAP-TLS: Provides strong security via the use of client certificates for
user authentication.
EAP-TLS will work with an 802.11b/g radio module when Windows Zero Config (WZC)
rather than the SCU is used to configure the type. With WZC, the native Windows supplicant
instead of the SCU integrated supplicant is used.
B.1.2.3 EAP Credentials
Keep the following in mind when defining security settings:

Profile
•
•
•
If the credentials specified in the profile are incorrect and that profile is used, the
authentication fails without an error message; you will not be prompted to enter
correct credentials.
If the credentials are not specified in the profile, when the radio tries to associate using
that profile, you will be prompted to enter the credentials.
When prompted, you can enter valid credentials, enter invalid credentials, or cancel
the operation.
- If you enter valid credentials and tap OK, the radio will associate and authenticate.
- If you enter invalid credentials and tap on OK, the radio will associate but will not
authenticate; you will be prompted again to enter credentials.
- If you tap on Cancel or clear the credentials fields and tap on OK, the radio will not
attempt to associate with that profile until you perform one of the following actions
(while the profile is the active profile):
- Cause the 8515 to go through a power cycle or suspend/resume.
- Disable and enable the radio, or tap the Reconnect button on the Diags windows.
- Modify the Profile, and tap on Commit.
Alternatively, you can choose another profile as the active profile and then switch back to
the profile for which EAP authentication was cancelled.
B.1.2.4 ThirdPartyConfig
If you choose to configure ThirdPartyConfig, the SCU will work with the operating system’s Windows Zero Config (WZC) to configure radio and security settings for the CF radio
installed in the unit.
Choosing this profile means that WZC must be used to define the following radio and security options: SSID, Auth Type, EAP Type, and Encryption.The SCU settings for ThirdPartyConfig include: Client Name, Power Save, Tx Power, Bit Rate, and Radio Mode. These SCU
settings along with SCU global settings and the WZC settings will be applied to the radio
module.

Use the Diags tab as a troubleshooting tool. The functions are as follows:
•
•
•
(Re)Connect: Enables/Disables the radio, applies/reapplies current profile and tries to
associate and authenticate to the wireless LAN, logging all activity in the output area at
bottom of the dialog box.
Release/Renew: Obtains a new IP address through DHCP and logs all activity in the
output area.
Start Ping: Starts a continuous ping to the address in the text box next to this button.
This is a toggle button so when you tap on it, it changes to Stop Ping. Closing this
window or tapping on another button also stops the ping.
