Introduction
Scanning a series of programming bar code labels can
configure the scanner.
The scanner must be properly powered before programming.
During the programming mode, the scanner will acknowledge a good and valid reading with a short beep. It
will give long beeps for either an invalid or bad reading.

Output
2.1
Beeper – Good Read
The beeper may be programmed On or Off in response to a good read. Turning this option off, only turns off the beeper
response to a good read indication. All error and menu beeps are still audible. Default = On.
2.2
Beeper Volume – Good Read
The beeper volume codes modify the volume of the beep the imager emits on a good read. Default =, High..
2.3
Low
Medium
High
Off
Beeper Pitch – Good Read
The beeper pitch codes modify the pitch (frequency) of the beep the imager emits on a good read. Default = Medium.
2.4
Beeper Duration – Good Read
The beeper duration codes modify the length of the beep the imager emits on a good read. Default = Normal.
5
* Normal Beep
Short Beep
2.5
Number of Beeps – Good Read
The number of beeps of a good read can be programmed from 1 – 3 (maximum 3). The same number of
beeps will be applied to the beeper and LED in response to a good read. For example, if you program
this option to have two beeps, there will be two beeps and two LED flashes in response to a good
read. The beeps and LED flashes are in sync with one another. To change the number of beeps, scan
the bar code below and then scan a digit (1-3) bar code and the Save bar code on the Programming
Chart (Appendix E of this manual). Default = One.
2.6
Good Read Delay
This sets the minimum amount of time before the imager can read another bar code. Default = No Delay.
* No Delay
Short Delay (500 ms)
Medium Delay (1,000 ms)
Long Delay (1,500 ms)
2.7
Aimer Delay
The aimer delay allows a delay time for the operator to aim the imager before the picture is taken. Use
these codes to set the time between when the trigger is activated and when the picture is taken.
During the delay time, the aiming light will appear, but the LEDs won’t turn on until the delay time is
over
200 milliseconds
400 milliseconds
* Off (no delay)
6
2.8 Centering
Use Centering to narrow the imager’s field of view to make sure the imager reads only those bar
codes intended by the user. For instance, if multiple codes are placed closely together, centering will
insure that only the desired codes are read. (Centering can be used in conjunction with Aimer Delay,
page 5-11, for the most error-free operation in applications where multiple codes are spaced closely
together. Using the Aimer Delay and Centering features, the imager can emulate the operation of
older systems, such as linear laser bar code imagers.)
In the example below, the gray area is the full imager field of view and the white area is the centering
window. Bar Code 1 will not be read, while Bar Code 2 will be.
The default centering window is a 128x96 pixel area in the center of the imager’s field of view. The
following diagram illustrates the default top, bottom, left, and right pixel positions, measured from the
top and the left side of the imager’s field of view, which is 640 by 480 pixels.
Scan Centering On, then scan one of the following bar codes to change the top, bottom, left, or right
of the centering window. Then scan the percent you want to shift the centering window using digits
on the inside back cover of this manual. Scan Save. Default Centering = 40% for Top and Left, 60%
for Bottom and Right.

Decode Search Mode
There are three selectable decode (scanning) modes:
Full Omnidirectional - Searches for bar code features beginning at the center of an image, and
searches to the image’s limits. This mode reads all symbologies , in any orientation. The Full
Omnidirectional search is very thorough which may slow performance time.
Note: This search mode is the default setting
Quick Omnidirectional - This is an abbreviated search for bar code features around the center region
of an image. This mode quickly reads all symbologies in any orientation. The Quick Omnidirectional
mode may miss some off-center symbols, as well as larger Data Matrix and QR Code symbols.
Quick Omnidirectional
Advanced Linear Decoding - Performs quick horizontal linear scans in a center band of the image.
This mode is not omnidirectional, but does quickly read linear and stacked bar codes. Advanced
Linear Decoding cannot read 2D, OCR, or Postal symbols.
Advanced Linear Decoding
2.10 Output Sequence Overview
Require Output Sequence
When turned off, the bar code data will be output to the host as the Imager decodes it. When turned
on, all output data must conform to an edited sequence or the Imager will not transmit the output data
to the host device.
Note: This selection is unavailable when the Multiple Symbols Selection is turned on.
Output Sequence Editor
8
This programming selection allows you to program the Imager to output data (when scanning more
than one symbol) in whatever order your application requires, regardless of the order in which the bar
codes are scanned. Reading the Default Sequence symbol programs the Imager to the Universal
values, shown below. These are the defaults. Be certain you want to delete or clear all formats before
you read the Default Sequence symbol.
Note: To make Output Sequence Editor selections, you’ll need to know the code I.D., code length,
and character match(es) your application requires. Use the Alphanumeric symbols (Appendix E)
to read these options.
To Add an Output Sequence
1. Scan the Enter Sequence symbol (see Output Sequence Editor, in two pages).
2. Code I.D.
On the Symbology Chart on Appendix A, find the symbology to which you want to apply the
output sequence format. Locate the Hex value for that symbology and scan the 2 digit hex value
from the Programming Chart (Appendix E).
3. Length
Specify what length (up to 9999 characters) of data output will be acceptable for this symbology.
Scan the four digit data length from the Programming Chart. (Note: 50 characters is entered as
0050. 9999 is a universal number, indicating all lengths.) When calculating the length, you must
count any programmed prefixes, suffixes, or formatted characters as part of the length (unless
using 9999).
4. Character Match Sequences
On the ASCII Conversion Chart (Appendix B), find the Hex value that represents the character(s)
you want to match. Use the Programming Chart to read the alphanumeric combination that
represents the ASCII characters. (99 is the Universal number, indicating all characters.)
5. End Output Sequence Editor
Scan F F to enter an Output Sequence for an additional symbology, or Save to save your entries.
Other Programming Selections
~ Discard
This exits without saving any Output Sequence changes.
2.11 Output Sequence Example
In this example, you are scanning Code 93, Code 128, and Code 39 bar codes, but you want the
imager to output Code 39 1 st, Code 128 2nd, and Code 93 3rd, as shown below.
Note: Code 93 must be enabled to use this example.
9
You would set up the sequence editor with the following command line:
SEQBLK62999941FF6A999942FF69999943FF
The breakdown of the command line is shown below:
SEQBLKsequence editor start command
62 code identifier for Code 39
9999 code length that must match for Code 39, 9999 = all lengths 41 start character match for
Code 39, 41h = “A” FF termination string for first code
6A code identifier for Code 128
9999 code length that must match for Code 128, 9999 = all lengths 42 start character match for
Code 128, 42h = “B” FF termination string for second code
69 code identifier for Code 93
9999 code length that must match for Code 93, 9999 = all lengths 43 start character match for
Code 93, 43h = “C” FF termination string for third code
To program the previous example using specific lengths, you would have to count any
programmed prefixes, suffixes, or formatted characters as part of the length. If you use the
example on the previous, assume a <CR> suffix and
specific code lengths, you would use the following command line:
SEQBLK62001141FF6A001242FF69001143FF
The breakdown of the command line is shown below:
SEQBLK sequence editor start command 62 code identifier for
Code 39

Default Sequence
2.11.2 Require Output Sequence
When an output sequence is Required, all output data must conform to an edited sequence or
the imager will not transmit the output data to the host device. When it’s On/Not Required, the
imager will attempt to get the output data to conform to an edited sequence, but if it cannot, the
imager transmits all output data to the host device as is.
When the output sequence is Off, the bar code data is output to the host as the imager decodes
it. Note: This selection is unavailable when the Multiple Symbols Selection is turned on.
10
2.12 No Read
With No Read turned On, the Imager notifies you if a code cannot be read. If using a Quick*View
Scan Data Window, an “NR” appears when a code cannot be read. If No Read is turned Off, the
“NR” will not appear.
On
* Off
If you want a different notation than “NR,” for example, “Error,” or “Bad Code,” you can edit the
output message using the Data Formatter. The hex code for the No Read symbol is 9C.
2.13 Print Weight
Print Weight is used to adjust the way the imager reads Matrix symbols. If a imager will be seeing
consistently heavily printed matrix symbols, then a print weight of 6 may improve the reading
performance. For consistently light printing, a print weight of 2 may help. After scanning the Set Print
Weight bar code, set the print weight (from 1-7) by scanning digits from the inside back cover, then
scanning Save. Default = 4.
2.14 Video Reverse
Video Reverse is used to allow the imager to read bar codes that are inverted. The “Off” bar code
below is an example of this type of bar code. If additional menuing is required, Video Reverse must be
disabled to read the menu bar codes and then re-enabled after menuing is completed.
Note: Images downloaded from the unit will not be reversed. This is a setting for decoding only.

It is of course possible to add a suffix/prefix but not via this programming guide. It is only possible
sending commands via Bluetooth. Please refer to the BaracodaManager documentation for further

All Symbologies On and Off
If you want to decode all the symbologies allowable for your imager, scan the All Symbologies On
code. If on the other hand, you want to decode only a particular symbology, scan All Symbologies Off
followed by the On symbol for that particular symbology.
All Symbologies On
All Symbologies Off
3.3
Message Length Description
You are able to set the valid reading length of some of the bar code symbologies. If the data length of
the scanned bar code doesn’t match the valid reading length, the imager will issue an error beep.
You may wish to set the same value for minimum and maximum length to force the imager to read
fixed length bar code data. This helps reduce the chances of a misread.
13
EXAMPLE: Decode only those bar codes with a count of 9-20 characters.
Min. length = 09 Max. length = 20
EXAMPLE: Decode only those bar codes with a count of 15 characters.
Min. length = 15 Max. length = 15
For a value other than the minimum and maximum message length defaults, scan the bar codes
included in the explanation of the symbology, then scan the digit value of the message length and
Save bar codes on the Programming Chart (Appendix E of this manual). The minimum and maximum
lengths and the defaults are included with the respective symbologies.

3.4.2
Codabar Check Character
Codabar check characters are created using different “modulos.” You can program the imager to
read only Codabar bar codes with Modulo 16 check characters. Default = No Check Character.
14
No Check Character indicates that the imager reads and transmits bar code data with or without a
check character.
When Check Character is set to Validate and Transmit, the imager will only read Codabar bar codes
printed with a check character, and will transmit this character at the end of the scanned data.
When Check Character is set to Validate, but Don’t Transmit, the unit will only read Codabar bar
codes printed with a check character, but will not transmit the check character with the scanned
data.

Codabar Concatenation
Codabar supports symbol concatenation. When you enable concatenation, the imager looks for a
Codabar symbol having a “D” start character, adjacent to a symbol having a “D” stop character. In
this case the two messages are concatenated into one with the “D” characters omitted. Default =
On.

Code 39 Append
This function allows the imager to append the data from several Code 39 bar codes together before
transmitting them to the host computer. When this function is enabled, the imager stores those Code
39 bar codes that start with a space (excluding the start and stop symbols), and does not
immediately transmit the data. The imager stores the data in the order in which the bar codes are
read, deleting the first space from each. The imager transmits the appended data when it reads a
Code 39 bar code that starts with a character other than a space. Default = Off.

RSS and Composites. Data from 2D symbols such as Aztec Code, Data Matrix, or QR Code, which
encode a leading FNC1, also invoke EAN~UCC emulation. If UCC/EAN-128 Emulation is selected,
the AIM Symbology Identifier is reported as “]C1”. If RSS Emulation is selected, the AIM Symbology

Appendix C: Code Page Mapping of Printed Bar Codes
Code pages define the mapping of character codes to characters. If the data received does not display
with the proper characters, it may be because the bar code being scanned was created using a code
page that is different from the one the host program is expecting. If this is the case, select the code
page with which the bar codes were created. The data characters should then appear properly.
Note: The Code Page option is available for Code 39, Code 93, and Code 128
