Introduction
The use of electronically captured signatures has become common for Point of Service
(POS) applications. Electronic signature capture reduces transaction time, eliminates
sorting & sending paper, provides convenient electronic storage & transmission, and
gives legal accountability (non-repudiation) for POS transactions.
uSign™ is an electronic signature capture device with a back lighted graphic LCD
display and touch sensitive screen that is the signature panel. Authors can view their
signatures in real time during the signing process. Signatures are compressed and
provided to a Host system for signature & data storage. The LCD display allows for
interactive text, which supports pen-tap commands and function selections. The
interactive Host operations allow selections and navigations through transactions with
just the stylus.
The LCD & touch sensitive screen are surrounded in a plastic housing. The housing
provides a tethered non-electronic stylus. The stylus is fastened to the housing in a way
to allow stylus replacement. A mounting plate secures the uSign housing to a counter
top or other mounting surface. An overlay covers and protects the signature area of the
uSign display. The overlay is removable allowing replacement if the signature area
becomes worn from stylus use. Customer specific front overlay designs are possible as
needed by an application.
There are two major uSign housing configurations. The first is a signature pad enclosed
in a stylish housing. This uSign is a POS System level product intended for signature
capture at a transaction counter. A convenient palm rest area below the signature
panel provides support during the signing process. The second configuration is an
OEM version with a smaller housing and intended for mounting to a vertical or near
vertical surface. Both products have the same internal components and operations.

Installing uSign
uSign is designed for an indoor environment. Locate the uSign where it is convenient to
operate and protected from heat or direct sunlight. Position the uSign so the signature
pad area is easy to reach and the immediate area is clear for authoring the signature.
The uSign housing has threaded inserts in the bottom and relief areas for hook & loop
fasteners. A metal mounting bracket with keyhole & screw mounting is mounted to the
back of the housing.
The uSign 100 with an RS232 interface uses a standard DB25 connector and is
supplied power with a 9VDC power adaptor. The uSign 200 with an RS232 interface
uses a standard DB9 connector and uses a 5VDC power adaptor. The input voltage on
the power adaptors may be limited; do not exceed the input voltage rating of the power
adaptor. Connect the power adaptor after the other connections are made. The uSign
having a USB communication interface receives power from the host through the USB
port.
For both interface types and when power is applied, the green & red LED on the uSign
are on for a moment, go off, and then the green is on and flashing. If the LED does not
light, check the connections and the availability of power from the power outlet. With
the green LED flashing, the LCD screen displays: “IDTECH uSign, Version x.xx.” When
the signature screen is touched or commands are received from a Host, the LED is
turned off and the screen is cleared for Host operations. The Green LED is controlled
and is on when uSign is in the capture mode; the red LED is host controlled.
The communication type can be RS232 or USB-CDC. Use the Communication
Interface section that corresponds with the interface of your uSign unit.

Communication Interfaces
RS232
The uSign has a communication cable with a DB25 (100 Model) or DB-9 (200 Model)
connector that fits the computer serial (RS232) COM port connection. See the
Specifications, Interface Section for COM port settings.
Connect the RS232 connector to the PC and insure it is fully seated into the connector.
Connect the power adaptor output to the power input socket on the back of the DB
connector shell. Connect the power adaptor to the AC line power outlet.
USB
The USB interface is a Communication Device Class that opens a virtual COM Port,
which operates as though the COM was an RS232 device. The USB communication
uses the Windows USB-CDC driver included in Windows 2000 & XP operating systems.
ID TECH provides an INF file for use with the CDC driver. Note: Windows XP with
Service Pack 1 can cause intermittent problems; use Service Pack 2.
Connect the USB connector to the PC and insure it is fully seated into the jack. If the
LEDs do not light, check the connections and the availability of power from the Host.
When the USB connection is recognized by the operating system for the first time, a
Found New Hardware message is given. The operating system must install the uSign
INF setup file, {uSignUsbCDC.inf} for the system to communicate with the uSign.
Retrieve the uSignUsbCDC.inf and companion usbser.sys files from the ID TECH
website and save the files in a convenient location on the PC system.
The New Hardware Wizard window appears. Follow the directions and the wizard
properly installs the INF setup information into the operating system. Select the “No,
not this time” button and Click Next > to continue. Then select the “Install from a list or
specific location (advanced)” button and Click Next > to continue.

USB-CDC Setup
The following steps provide a check on the USB-CDC COM port selected by the
operating system. This step is used only if there is a need to confirm operation and
possible to review the communication port number. Open the Windows Control Panel
and follow the selections: System, Hardware Tab, and Device Manager. Expand the
Port (COM & LPT) folder. There should be an item “IDTECH USB-RS232 uSign (COM
#)”, where # is a Port number. uSign is set-up and communicating.
