Scanner gives a power-up beep after scanning a USB
Device Type.
Communication with the bus must be established before the scanner
can operate at the highest power level.
This power-up beep occurs more than once.
The USB bus may put the scanner in a state where power to the scanner
is cycled on and off more than once. This is normal and usually happens
when the host cold boots.

Operation
Scanning
To scan a bar code:
1. Install and program the scanner (See “Setting Up the Scanner” on page 6.). For
assistance, contact Technical Support.
2. Ensure all connections are secure. (See the host chapter for the scanner.)
3. Aim the scanner at the bar code.
4. If the scanner is in Trigger Single Mode, press the trigger button. (In Stand Mode, no trigger button press is required. The scanner laser is in constant ON mode.)
Figure 4. Scanning With/Without the Trigger
Trigger Single Mode Stand Mode
Push Trigger to
initiate scan.
Trigger push
not required.
5. Upon successful decode, the scanner beeps and the LED flashes green. (For more information about beeper and LED definitions, see Table 1 and Table 2.)
The width of the scan line is dependent upon the current setting for
the programmable feature, Scan Line Width. “Full” (the default setting) or “Medium” scan line widths are available.
NOTE
Aiming
For a typical, full-sized UPC label, the scanner should be held between 1” and 7” from the bar
code. Ensure that the scan line crosses the entire bar code as shown in Figure 5.
Figure 5. Correct and Incorrect Aiming
012345
012345
The scan line is smaller when the scanner is closer to the bar code and grows when the scanner is
drawn away from the bar code. For best results, hold the scanner closer to bar codes with very
small bars or elements (mil size) and pull the scanner further away from labels having larger bars
or elements (mil size).
12
QuickScan® L
Aiming
Do not hold the scanner perpendicular to the bar code when scanning. Laser light reflecting
directly back into the scanner from the bar code can result in specular reflection, which can in
turn cause difficulties with decoding. Tilt the scanner to avoid the dead zone (indicated by an
‘X’ in Figure 6) up to 65 degrees upwards or downwards.

General Features
User Preferences
User preferences for the general features listed in this chapter can be selected using the
programming bar codes that accompany each feature description. To set feature values,
scan a single programming bar code or a short bar code sequence as instructed for each
feature. The settings are stored in non-volatile memory and are preserved even when the
scanner is powered down.
Typically, a scanner ships with the settings shown in User General Feature Defaults
on page 20 (also see Appendix B, Standard Defaults for all host defaults). If the default values suit requirements, programming may not be necessary.
If not using a USB cable, select a host type (see each host chapter for specific host information) after the power-up beeps sound. This is only necessary upon the first power-up
when connecting to a new host.
To return all features to their default values, reference the topic, Return to Factory Defaults. Throughout the programming bar code menus, default values are indicated with
asterisks (*).
* Indicates Default
*High Frequency
Feature/Option
Scanning Sequence Examples
In most cases, scanning one bar code sets the parameter value. For example, to set the
beeper tone to high, scan the High Frequency (beeper tone) bar code on page 19. The
scanner issues a fast warble beep and the LED turns green, signifying a successful parameter entry.
Other parameters, such as Serial Response Time-Out or Data Transmission Formats, require the scanning of a sequence of bar codes. See these parameter descriptions for this
procedure.
Errors While Scanning
Unless otherwise specified, when an error is made during a scanning sequence, just rescan the correct feature bar code(s).

This parameter determines whether or not power remains on after a decode attempt.
When in reduced power mode, the scanner enters low power consumption mode after
each decode. When in continuous power mode, power remains on after each decode.
*Continuous On
Reduced Power Mode
Scan Mode
This parameter determines whether the scanner is in Trigger Single Mode or Stand Mode.
In Trigger Single Mode, the scanner trigger button must be pressed to decode each
scanned bar code. In Stand Mode, the scanner laser is in constant ON state and no trigger
button press is required to scan a bar code.
Depending upon which mode the scanner currently is in, scan the “Toggle Scan Mode”
to switch from Trigger Single to Stand Mode, or from Stand Mode to Trigger Single Mode.
The standard default setting for this feature is Trigger Single Mode.
While in the Stand Mode of operation, if the scanner has not been used for several minutes it will shift to low power operation, signalled by a narrowing of the scanning beam.
When in low power mode, the scanner will respond to a barcode and come back to normal Stand Mode operation upon seeing/reading the label.
If the scanner has been idle for an extended configurable period1, it will timeout, then
enter sleep mode with the scanning beam turned off. To wake the scanner from sleep
mode, press the trigger button.

RS-232 Host Parameters
Hardware Handshaking
The data interface consists of an RS-232 port designed to operate either with or without
the hardware handshaking lines, Request to Send (RTS), and Clear to Send (CTS).
If Standard RTS/CTS handshaking is not selected, scan data is transmitted as it becomes
available. If Standard RTS/CTS handshaking is selected, scan data is transmitted according to the following sequence:
•
The scanner reads the CTS line for activity. If CTS is asserted, the scanner waits up to
Host Serial Response Time-out for the host to de-assert the CTS line. If, after Host Serial
Response Time-out, the CTS line is still asserted, the scanner sounds a transmit error, and
any scanned data is lost.
•
When the CTS line is de-asserted, the scanner asserts the RTS line and waits up to Host
Serial Response Time-out for the host to assert CTS. When the host asserts CTS, data is
transmitted. If, after Host Serial Response Time-out, the CTS line is not asserted, the
scanner sounds a transmit error, and discards the data.
•
When data transmission is complete, the scanner de-asserts RTS 10 msec after sending the
last character.
•
The host should respond by negating CTS. The scanner checks for a de-asserted CTS
upon the next transmission of data.
During the transmission of data, the CTS line should be asserted. If CTS is de-asserted
for more than 50 ms between characters, the transmission is aborted, the scanner sounds
a transmission error, and the data is discarded.
If the above communication sequence fails, the scanner issues an error indication. In this
case, the data is lost and must be rescanned.
If Hardware Handshaking and Software Handshaking are both enabled, Hardware
Handshaking takes precedence.
The DTR signal is jumpered to the active state.
NOTE
•
None: Scan the bar code below if no Hardware Handshaking is desired.
•
Standard RTS/CTS: Scan the bar code below to select Standard RTS/CTS Hardware
Handshaking.
•
RTS/CTS Option 1: When RTS/CTS Option 1 is selected, the scanner asserts RTS
before transmitting and ignores the state of CTS. The scanner de-asserts RTS when the
transmission is complete.
•
RTS/CTS Option 2: When Option 2 is selected, RTS is always high or low (user-programmed logic level). However, the scanner waits for CTS to be asserted before transmitting data. If CTS is not asserted within Host Serial Response Time-out, the scanner issues
an error indication and discards the data.
Product Reference Guide
41
RS-232
Hardware Handshaking — cont.
•
RTS/CTS Option 3: When Option 3 is selected, the scanner asserts RTS prior to any data
transmission, regardless of the state of CTS. The scanner waits up to Host Serial Response
Time-out for CTS to be asserted. If CTS is not asserted during this time, the scanner
issues an error indication and discards the data. The scanner de-asserts RTS when transmission is complete.

RS-232 Host Parameters
Software Handshaking
This parameter offers control of the data transmission process in addition to, or instead
of, that offered by hardware handshaking. There are five options.
If Software Handshaking and Hardware Handshaking are both enabled, Hardware
Handshaking takes precedence.
•
None: When this option is selected, data is transmitted immediately. No response is
expected from host.
•
ACK/NAK: When this option is selected, after transmitting data, the scanner expects
either an ACK or NAK response from the host. When a NAK is received, the scanner
transmits the same data again and waits for either an ACK or NAK. After three unsuccessful attempts to send data when NAKs are received, the scanner issues an error indication
and discards the data.
The scanner waits up to the programmable Host Serial Response Time-out to receive an
ACK or NAK. If the scanner does not get a response in this time, it issues an error indication and discards the data. There are no retries when a time-out occurs.
•
ENQ: When this option is selected, the scanner waits for an ENQ character from the host
before transmitting data. If an ENQ is not received within the Host Serial Response
Time-out, the scanner issues an error indication and discards the data. The host must
transmit an ENQ character at least every Host Serial Response Time-out to prevent transmission errors.
•
ACK/NAK with ENQ: This combines the two previous options. For re-transmissions of
data, due to a NAK from the host, an additional ENQ is not required.
•
XON/XOFF: An XOFF character turns the scanner transmission off until the scanner
receives an XON character. There are two situations for XON/XOFF:
- XOFF is received before the scanner has data to send. When the scanner has data to
send, it waits up to Host Serial Response Time-out for an XON character before transmission. If the XON is not received within this time, the scanner issues an error indication and discards the data.
- XOFF is received during a transmission. Data transmission then stops after sending the
current byte. When the scanner receives an XON character, it sends the rest of the data
message. The scanner waits up to 30 seconds for the XON.

Chapter 7
Keyboard Wedge Interface
This chapter describes how to set up a Keyboard Wedge interface with the scanner. With
this interface, the scanner is connected between the keyboard and host computer, and
translates bar code data into keystrokes. The host computer accepts the keystrokes as if
they originated from the keyboard. This mode adds bar code reading functionality to a
system designed for manual keyboard input. Keyboard keystrokes are simply passed
through.
Throughout the programming bar code menus, default values are indicated with asterisks
(*).

Caps Lock Override
When enabled, on AT or AT Notebook hosts, the keyboard ignores the state of the Caps
Lock key. Therefore, an ‘A’ in the bar code is sent as an ‘A’ no matter what the state of
the keyboard’s Caps Lock key.
If both Caps Lock On and Caps Lock Override are enabled, Caps Lock Override takes precedence.

ASCII Character Set for Keyboard Wedge
NOTE
Code 39 Full ASCII interprets the bar code special character ($ + % /) preceding a Code 39 character and assigns an ASCII character value to the pair. For
example, when Code 39 Full ASCII is enabled and a +B is scanned, it is interpreted as b, %J as ?, and %V as @. Scanning ABC%I outputs the keystroke
equivalent of ABC >.

USB Host Parameters
USB Ignore Unknown Characters
This option applies only to the HID Keyboard Emulation device and IBM device. Unknown characters are characters the host does not recognize. When Send Bar Codes With
Unknown Characters is selected, all bar code data is sent except for unknown characters,
and no error beeps sound. When Do Not Send Bar Codes With Unknown Characters is
selected, bar code data is sent up to the first unknown character, then the scanner issues
an error beep.
*Send Bar Codes with Unknown Characters
Do Not Send Bar Codes with Unknown Characters
Emulate Keypad
When enabled, all characters are sent as ASCII sequences over the numeric keypad. For
example ASCII A would be sent as “ALT make” 0 6 5 “ALT Break.”
*Disable Keypad Emulation
Enable Keypad Emulation

USB Keyboard FN 1 Substitution
This option applies only to the USB HID Keyboard Emulation device. When enabled,
this allows replacement of any FN 1 characters in an EAN 128 bar code with a Key Category and value chosen by the user (see FN1 Substitution Values on page 30 to set the
Key Category and Key Value).
Enable FN1 Substitution
*Disable FN1 Substitution
Function Key Mapping
ASCII values under 32 are normally sent as a control-key sequences (see Table 17 on
page 84). When this parameter is enabled, the keys in bold are sent in place of the standard key mapping. Table entries that do not have a bold entry remain the same whether
or not this parameter is enabled.
*Disable Function Key Mapping

Symbologies
Introduction
This chapter describes symbology features and provides the programming bar codes for
selecting these features. Before programming, follow the instructions in Chapter 2, Getting Started.
The scanner is shipped with the settings shown in Table 23 on page 96 (also see Appendix B, Standard Defaults for all host device and miscellaneous defaults). If the default
values suit requirements, programming is not necessary.
To set feature values, scan a single bar code or a short bar code sequence. The settings are
stored in non-volatile memory and are preserved even when the scanner is powered
down.
If not using a USB cable, select a host type (see each host chapter for specific host information) after the power-up beeps sound. This is only necessary upon the first power-up
when connected to a new host.
To return all features to default values, scan the appropriate default bar code on page 21.
Throughout the programming bar code menus, default values are indicated with asterisks
(*).
* Indicates Default
*Enable UPC-A
Feature/Option
Scanning Sequence Examples
In most cases, scanning one bar code sets the parameter value. For example, to transmit
bar code data without the UPC-A check digit, simply scan the Do Not Transmit UPCA Check Digit bar code under Transmit UPC-A Check Digit on page 104. The scanner
issues a fast warble beep and the LED turns green, signifying a successful parameter entry.
Other parameters, such as Set Length(s) for D 2 of 5, require scanning several bar codes.
See the individual parameter, such as Set Length(s) for D 2 of 5, for this procedure.
Errors While Scanning
Unless otherwise specified, to correct an error during a scanning sequence, just re-scan
the correct parameter.

Symbology Parameter Defaults
Table 23 lists the defaults for all symbologies parameters. To change any option, scan the
appropriate bar code(s) provided in the Symbologies Parameters section beginning on
page 99.

Code 39 Buffering (Scan & Store)
This feature allows the scanner to accumulate data from multiple Code 39 bar codes.
Selecting the Scan and Store option (Buffer Code 39) temporarily buffers all Code 39
bar codes having a leading space as a first character for later transmission. The leading
space is not buffered.
Decode of a valid Code 39 bar code with no leading space causes transmission in sequence of all buffered data in a first-in first-out format, plus transmission of the “triggering” bar code. See the following pages for further details.
When the Do Not Buffer Code 39 option is selected, all decoded Code 39 bar codes
are transmitted immediately without being stored in the buffer.
Code 39 Buffering (Scan & Store)
This feature affects Code 39 only. If selecting Buffer Code 39, we recommend configuring the scanner to decode Code 39 symbology only.

Buffer Data
To buffer data, Code 39 buffering must be enabled and a Code 39 bar code must be read
with a space immediately following the start pattern.
- Unless the data overflows the transmission buffer, the scanner issues a low/high beep to
indicate successful decode and buffering. (For overflow conditions, see Overfilling
Transmission Buffer on page 120.)
- The scanner adds the decoded data excluding the leading space to the transmission
buffer.
- No transmission occurs.

The scanner offers four levels of decode redundancy. Select higher redundancy levels for
decreasing levels of bar code quality. As redundancy levels increase, the scanner’s aggressiveness decreases.
Select the redundancy level appropriate for the bar code quality.

Security Level
The scanner offers four levels of decode security for delta bar codes, which include the
Code 128 family, UPC/EAN, and Code 93. Select increasing levels of security for decreasing levels of bar code quality. There is an inverse relationship between security and
scanner aggressiveness, so choose only that level of security necessary for any given application.
•
Security Level 0: This default setting allows the scanner to operate in its most aggressive
state, while providing sufficient security in decoding most “in-spec” bar codes.
•
Security Level 1: Select this option if misdecodes occur. This security level should eliminate most misdecodes.
•
Security Level 2: Select this option if Security level 1 fails to eliminate misdecodes.
•
Security Level 3: If Security Level 2 was selected and misdecodes still occur, select this
security level. Be advised, selecting this option is an extreme measure against mis-decoding
severely out of spec bar codes. Selecting this level of security significantly impairs the
decoding ability of the scanner. If this level of security is necessary, try to improve the
quality of the bar codes.

Symbology - Intercharacter Gap
The Code 39 and Codabar bar codeogies have an intercharacter gap that is customarily
quite small. Due to various bar code printing technologies, this gap may grow larger than
the maximum size allowed, causing the scanner to be unable to decode the bar code. If
this problem is encountered, scan Large Intercharacter Gaps to tolerate out-of-specification bar codes.
