1.1 Reading 2D Codes and Bar Codes
BHT-100Q
Turn the BHT power on, bring the reading window to the target code, and press the
trigger switch. The BHT-100Q turns three marker LEDs on to indicate the scanning
range and the illumination LED to scan the code. Keep the BHT stationary in a position
where the target code lies between the right and left markers and the center marker
comes to the center of the target code.
Hold the reading window 4 to 14 cm (1.6 to 5.5 inches) away from codes to be scanned.
When the BHT has read the code successfully, the indicator LED will illuminate in
green and the markers will go off.

• The markers show the left-to-right scanning range. When the scanning distance
is 8.5 to 9.5 cm (3.3 to 3.7 inches), they indicate almost the center of the up-down
scanner’s view. If the distance is out of the range, those markers will deviate
from the center.
• If the BHT fails to read due to specular effects or other
factors, change the scanning angle of the reading window or the distance from codes as shown at right, and
try it again. (Specular effects occur when the reflection of the light from the code becomes excessively
strong. This can easily happen when the reflecting
surface is polished or covered with vinyl.)
• The code reading procedure may differ depending upon
the application used, so follow the application's
manual.

Chapter 1. Quick Guide
• Before reading 2D codes or bar codes, clean those labels if stained.
• Avoid using the BHT in direct sunlight. The BHT might fail to read correctly.
• To read 2D codes or bar codes on curved surfaces, apply the BHT to the target
code so that the code comes to the center of the scanning range indicated by the
markers.
• Depending upon the code size or cell pitch, the proper scanning distance from
2D codes or bar codes will differ.
• Do not use the BHT in the vicinity of radio equipment. The BHT may malfunction.
At the scanning time, the marker LEDs and illumination LED will come on. The
illumination LED may not come on where it is bright enough for the BHT to
scan. The light intensity of those LEDs will vary depending upon the scanning
conditions and variation of their elements.
3
BHT-100B
Turn the BHT power on, bring the bar-code reading window to the bar code to be
scanned, and press the trigger switch. The BHT-100B emits a laser light to indicate the
scanning range and turns on the illumination LED to scan the bar code.
When the BHT has read the bar code successfully, the indicator LED will illuminate in
green.

• The laser light indicates the scanning range as a guide.
The indicated scanning range will deviate a little bit
from the actual one. Keep the BHT so that the laser
light comes to almost the center of the bar code height.
• The BHT can read bar codes at a maximum distance of 40 cm (15.7")* from the
reading window. (*For details about the scanning conditions, refer to Appendix
A.)
• The bar code reading procedure may differ depending upon the application
used, so follow the application's manual.

Chapter 1. Quick Guide
• Before reading bar codes, clean those labels if stained.
• Avoid using the BHT in direct sunlight. The BHT might fail to read correctly.
• To read bar codes on curved surfaces, apply the BHT to the target bar code so that the
code comes to the center of the scanning range indicated by the laser beam.
• When you pull the bar-code reading window away from bar codes, the actual
scanning range will become narrower than the range covered by the laser beam.
• Do not use the BHT in the vicinity of personal or amateur radio equipment. The
BHT may malfunction.
The light intensity of the laser light or illumination LED will vary depending
upon the scanning conditions and variation of their elements.

1.5 Transferring Data
■ Using infrared link
Using infrared rays, the BHT may transfer data directly to the host computer equipped
with an IrDA interface port and other IrDA-compliant devices.
• Make sure that there is no obstruction in the light path between the BHT and any
target stations. In infrared communication, you need to keep the BHT and any
target stations within the effective infrared radiation range, usually 10 to 80 cm
(3.94 to 31.50").
• Shield the IrDA interface from direct sunlight, ambient intense lighting (inverterdriven fluorescent lighting, in particular), and other potential sources of infrared
radiation. Sources to watch out for include remote control units for television sets
and the like.

■ CU-7000 and RS-232C Interface Cable (option)
The CU-7000 is an IrDA-compliant communications unit which is required when your
host computer is not equipped with an IrDA interface port. The CU-7000 exchanges
data and programs with the BHT optically, and with the host computer via the RS-232C
interface cable.
You may directly connect two BHTs with each other by using a commercially available
metal cable having 3-pole mini stereo plugs (as a direct-connect interface cable). You
also connect the BHT directly with the host computer or with the modem by using the
direct-connect interface cable compatible with the target equipment. (NOTE: The
direct-connect interface port of the BHT is not designed to stand frequent connecting/
disconnecting. You are, therefore, recommended to use the CU-7000 where you
expect to do a lot of connecting and disconnecting of the BHT to/from a host computer.)
■ BHT-BASIC Compiler (option)
This Compiler compiles a source program written in BHT-BASIC by an editor of the
host computer running the MS-DOS, into the object program (user program) which
can be used in the BHT. The compiled and linked program file is named "XXX.PD3."
(XXX: File name you can set arbitrarily under the MS-DOS rules) You should download
it to the BHT by using Ir-Transfer Utility C/Ir-Transfer Utility E/Transfer Utility.
13
■ Ir-Transfer Utility C (option)
Running on the host computer, this utility transfers files between the BHT and the host
computer. For its file transfer control procedure, the utility uses the BHT-Ir protocol.
(For the details about the BHT-Ir protocol, refer to Chapter 3, Subsection 3.4.2.)
To transfer files under any of the following conditions, use Ir-Transfer Utility C:
-
At transmission speeds of 115200 or 57600 bps (This may be impossible depending upon the host computer type.)
-
When the BHT is placed on the CU-7000
-
Via the direct-connect interface of the BHT
■ Ir-Transfer Utility E (option)
Running on the host computer, this utility transfers files between the BHT and the host
computer. For its file transfer control procedure, the utility uses the BHT-Ir protocol.
(For the details about the BHT-Ir protocol, refer to Chapter 3, Subsection 3.4.2.)
To transfer files under any of the following conditions, use Ir-Transfer Utility E:
-
Via an external IR transceiver
-
Via an IR port integrated in a computer
■ Transfer Utility (option)
Running on the host computer, this utility transfers files between the BHT and the host
computer. For its file transfer control procedure, the utility uses the BHT-protocol.
(For the details about the BHT-protocol, refer to Chapter 3, Subsection 3.4.1.)
To transfer files under any of the following conditions, use Transfer Utility:
-
When the BHT is placed on the CU-7000

■ System Programs
The system programs include the following three sets of programs:
Drivers
Drivers is a set of programs that directly controls the BHT hardware. It may be called
up by the BHT-BASIC Interpreter or System Mode.
BHT-BASIC Interpreter
The interpreter interprets and executes instructions in user programs written in BHTBASIC.
15
System Mode
System Mode is a system program exclusively designed for the effective use of user
programs in the BHT. It sets up the execution environments for those programs; e.g.,
it prepares downloading/uploading conditions, sets the calendar clock, and tests the
BHT components including the LCD, beeper, and keypad. Shown below is the System
Mode menu (SYSTEM MENU).
■ JIS Level 1 and Level 2 Font Files
These files contain font data required for displaying Kanji characters on the LCD.
The BHT can display the Kanji characters not only in the conventional standard-size
font (16 dots wide by 16 dots high) but also in the small-size font (12 dots wide by 12
dots high) in application programs. It can also display the double-width, doubleheight, and quadruple-size (double-width & -height) Kanji characters of those 16-dot
and 12-dot fonts in application programs.
If you do not need to display Kanji characters, you may delete these JIS font files.
After deletion, the memory area which was occupied by these files can be used as a
user area. For the deleting procedure, refer to Section 2.4, "Initializing the BHT
System" or Subsection 2.5.3, "[ 7 ] Deleting Files."
The names of the JIS font files are:
FNT16J1.FN3
FNT16J2.FN3
FNT12J1.FN3
FNT12J2.FN3
(JIS Level 1 font, 16-dot)
(JIS Level 2 font, 16-dot)
(JIS Level 1 font, 12-dot)
(JIS Level 2 font, 12-dot)
■ User Programs
You can develop application programs to meet individual job requirements by using
the BHT-BASIC Compiler.
To download those user programs to the BHT, use Ir-
Transfer Utility C/Ir-Transfer Utility E/Transfer Utility.

You may set the decode level. Decreasing the level value increases the bar-code
reading efficiency, but the BHT might misread low-quality bar codes (split or stained).
To the contrary, increasing the level value decreases the bar-code reading efficiency,
but it will diminish the possibility of misreading.
The setting range of the level value is from 1 to 9 and the default is 4.
61
Marker
You may select the marker ON/OFF mode from the following:
0: Driven by the trigger switch
1: Fixed to ON
2: Fixed to OFF
If you select "1" (Fixed to ON), the markers will keep ON so that power consumption is higher than that in other modes and the battery working time becomes short.
Do not disturb this setting unless necessary.
Minimum number of digits to be read for ITF, STF, or Codabar
You may set the minimum number of digits to be read for ITF, STF, and Codabar.
Setting a small number of digits increases the frequency of digit-missing reading or
misreading depending upon how to scan bar codes or the quality of bar codes. On the
other hand, setting a large number will diminish the possibility of those errors.
The setting range is from 2 to 20 for ITF, from 1 to 20 for STF, and from 3 to 20 for
Codabar. The default is 4 for ITF and Codabar, and 2 for STF.

* The minimum number of digits to be read depends on

To return to the TEST menu, press the C key.
• The "QR Code" system supports a split QR code feature ("Structured Append")
which can divide data in a QR code into a maximum of 16 blocks and encode
each of them into a split QR code.
When reading split QR codes, the BHT-100Q beeps in a different way from
usual. That is, when the BHT-100Q reads the first split code, it beeps twice and
enters the split code scanning mode. After that, each time it reads the subsequent
split code, it beeps once. If the BHT-100Q reads the last split code, it beeps three
times and completes the sequence of split code scanning.
The scanned data will not be displayed on the LCD until a sequence of split code
scanning is completed.
If you scan any non-split code midway in a sequence of split code scanning, the
BHT-100Q displays the scanned non-split code, cancels the split code scanning
mode, and discards those split codes being scanned. The same occurs also if you
release the trigger switch or the split code scanning interval exceeds approx. 5
seconds.
The scanning order of split codes is arbitrary. The same split code will never be
double-scanned.
• If the OPTION DATA is set to ON on the SET QRCODE screen in the SET
SYSTEM menu (see [4.4] Setting the special scanning parameters), then the
option data will follow QR code data read.

The BHT system parameter file (named "_ _BHT.SYS") stores system environment
settings specified in the SET SYSTEM menu (in Subsection 2.5.3, [ 4 ]) and other
settings such as the LCD contrast and beeper volume.
The SYSTEM PARAMETER transfer menu allows you to upload or download the BHT
system parameter file to/from the host computer. This helps you make the same
settings for the BHTs as those made in a single BHT.
First, make settings in a particular BHT and upload the BHT system parameter file to
the host computer by using this menu ("2:UPLOAD"). Next, let other BHTs download
the file from the host computer by using this menu ("1:DOWNLOAD").
Without the host computer, you may directly copy the BHT system parameter file
between two BHTs (one BHT runs UPLOAD and the other, DOWNLOAD). For
the preparation to be made beforehand, refer to NOTE on page 47.
If you select the "2:UPLOAD," the system will set up the BHT system parameter file
based on the current settings and upload it to the host computer. After that, the
created file will be deleted.
If you select the "1:DOWNLOAD," the BHT will receive the BHT system parameter file
from the host computer and apply the stored values. After that, the received file will be

Chapter 3. Communications Operations of the BHT-100Q/100B
3.1 Infrared Communication
The BHT has an integrated infrared (IR) communications device which enables wireless transfer of programs and data between the BHT and the host computer and
between the BHTs, instead of the conventional wire transfer.
The IR communications device features the following:
•
Wireless communications
•
Small and lightweight design
•
High transmission speed
•
Freedom from the codes/regulations and licenses which differ from country to
country, unlike radio devices
The BHT may communicate with other IrDA-compliant equipment just by aligning their
IR ports with each other. The effective IR range and IR port angle may differ depending
upon the target equipment, so observe the instructions given in manuals furnished
with such equipment.
If IR transfer fails, bring the BHT closer to the target station or change the IR port
angle, and try again.
109
The BHT's IR communications device is IrDA-compliant. IrDA stands for Infrared Data
Association, which has defined hardware (IrDA Serial Infrared Physical Layer Link) and
communications protocols for IR communications.
The BHT's physical layer complies with the IrDA1.0, with a maximum transfer distance
of 0.8 m and maximum transmission rate of 115.2 kbits per second.
The BHT adopts the exclusive BHT-Ir protocol which allows you to develop user
programs for IR communications in BHT-BASIC, as can be done with conventional wire
communications.

3.2 RS-232C Interface Specifications
[ 1 ] Interface Connector and Pin Assignment
The BHT has a direct-connect interface port which is connectable to the 3-pole mini
stereo plug (ø2.5 mm or 0.1") and supports a subset of the RS-232C interface as shown
below.
Using a direct-connect interface cable having the mini stereo plugs makes it possible
to connect the BHT to a host computer (or another BHT) directly without any routing
through the CU-7000.

otherwise, the service life of the plug will shorten. To connect the BHT to a host
computer having no IR port (or another BHT) frequently, use the CU-7000.
• Allow the specified signals only to enter the direct-connect interface port. Entry
of other signals will result in a failure or malfunction of the BHT.

■ Synchronization
For accurate data transaction, it is very important to synchronize the transmission
between the sender and receiver. To do this, it is required to previously define the
bit order and position, the character length, and the beginning and end of the
character to be transmitted.
The start-stop synchronization is an asynchronous system which synchronizes
each character as a unit; that is, it externally adds start and stop bits to the leading
and trailing bit positions of the character to be transmitted, respectively. A clock
starts counting on receiving the start bit and it falls into a non-communication state
on receiving the stop bit. The number of the stop bits is selectable (1 or 2 bits).
■ Transmission Speed
Maximum number of bits to be transmitted per second. Expressed in bps (bits per
second).
■ Optical Interface Communications Range
The optical interface's maximum effective range is 80 cm (31.5 in.) with the IR beam
within a 10˚ angle of divergence.
■ Switching Time between Sending and Receiving on Optical Interface
The optical interface should satisfy the following requirements in switching between sending and receiving:
(1) Within 10 ms from completion of sending, the optical interface should become
ready to receive.
(2) After 10 ms or more from completion of receiving, the optical interface should
start sending.
113
■ Transmission Code and Bit Order
All characters should be coded to 7- or 8-bit code for data transmission. The
standard data exchange code of the BHT is JIS 7- or 8-bit code. The transmission
bit order is LSB (Least significant bit) first.
What follows is an example for transmitting character A (41h, 01000001b) coded to
JIS 8-level code with an even parity and a single bit each for start and stop bits.
LSB

■ Vertical Parity
A vertical parity bit is a redundancy bit which is added to every character to be
transmitted in order to check that data has been transmitted accurately. The parity
bit should be set to "1" or "0" depending upon the parity parameter setting, to make
the number of set bits in the character even or odd. The receiver counts the
number of set bits in the transmitted character code to make sure that it has the
selected number (even or odd) of set bits.
The vertical parity bit is positioned immediately following the MSB (Most significant bit) as shown below.

Refer to Chapter 2, Subsection 2.5.3, "[4.5] Setting the communications environments."
In BHT-BASIC
To set the transmission speed, character length, vertical parity, and stop bit length (To
set the transmission speed only for the optical interface), use the OPEN "COM:"
statement in BHT-BASIC.
OPEN "COM: ... "
Opens the interface port selected in System Mode.
OPEN "COM1: ... "
Opens the optical interface port for data transmission,
irrespective of the setting in System Mode.
OPEN "COM2: ... "
Opens the direct-connect interface port for data transmission, irrespective of the setting in System Mode.
Note that it is impossible to open both the optical interface port and the direct-connect
interface port concurrently.
Through the interface port opened by the OPEN "COM:" statement, the XFILE
statement transmits a designated file.
115
3.4 Communications Protocols
The BHT supports both the BHT-protocol and the BHT-Ir protocol for file transmission.
3.4.1 BHT-protocol
[ 1 ] Overview
The BHT-protocol is the communications procedure used to transmit files between the
BHT and a host (or between the BHTs). It adopts the response method using ACK/NAK
codes.
The BHT-protocol is composed of a defined set of the control character sequences
including the following three phases:
Phase 1:
Establishment of data link
The sending station confirms that the receiving station is ready to
receive data.
Phase 2:
Data transmission
The sending station transmits data to the target receiving station.
Phase 3:
Release of data link
The sending station confirms whether or not all of the transmitted
data has been correctly received by the receiving station. If yes, the
sending station terminates the data transmission and releases the
data link.
For details about the transmission control sequences and horizontal parity checking,
refer to Appendix B, B.1, "BHT-protocol."
116
Chapter 3. Communications Operations of the BHT-100Q/100B
[ 2 ] Control Characters
The control characters are classified into two groups: transmission control characters
and text control characters.
(1) Transmission control characters
The transmission control characters listed below are used to compose transmission
control sequences in phases 1 through 3.

■ Transparency
The BHT uses the non-transparent mode which handles the control characters and
codes (e.g., STX, ETX, and SOH) as starting or ending markers and does not allow
them to be transmitted as normal data in the transmission texts.
117
(2) Text control characters
The text control characters are used to format transmission texts. In the BHT-protocol,
they include the following headers and a terminator.
Symbol
Value
Meaning
Function
SOH
01h
Start Of Heading
Indicates the start of heading text (Phase
2).
STX
02h
Start of Text
Indicates the start of data text (Phase 2).
ETX
03h
End of Text
Indicates the end of data text (Phase 2).
You may designate values of headers and a terminator with the protocol functions in
BHT-BASIC. If you designate none of them in a user program, the BHT may apply
those as listed above. Refer to the "BHT-BASIC Programmer's Manual (BHT-100
series)."

Chapter 3. Communications Operations of the BHT-100Q/100B
[ 3 ] Basic Format of Transmission Messages
Basically, the BHT transmits data as units of a file. First, it transmits a heading text
which includes the attribute information of a file (e.g., file name and the number of
data texts) to be transmitted. Following the heading text, it transmits the data text in
the file. A heading text and data text comprise a text.
In actual text transmission, the text is divided into several blocks, then a header and
terminator are added to each block. If the serial number management or error
checking by BCC (Block Check Character) is required, the serial number or BCC is also
added to each block, respectively. This procedure forms a transmission block. A set of
transmission blocks makes up one transmission message.
Shown below is an example of a transmission message formed with the BHT-protocol.

In the above figure, SOH, STX, and ETX are text control characters as described in [ 2 ]
Control Characters, (2). A serial number is expressed by a five-digit decimal number,
starting from 00001 to 32767, and identifies transmitted data texts. For the BCC, refer
to Appendix B, B.1, "BHT-protocol," [ 3 ].
119

The total length of all data fields plus the number of the character count bytes (= the
number of the fields) should be 255 bytes or less.
When you transfer five 50-digit (50-byte) fields, for example, the total length of all
data fields is 250 (50 x 5) bytes and the number of the character count bytes is 5.
Accordingly, the total is 255, so you can transfer the file.

3.4.2 BHT-Ir Protocol
[ 1 ] Overview
The BHT-Ir protocol is the communications procedure for the serial infrared link, which
is used to transmit files between the BHT and a host (or between the BHTs). It adopts
the response method using ACK/NAK codes. The BHT-Ir protocol can be used also for
communications through the direct-connect interface.
The BHT-Ir protocol is composed of a defined set of the control character sequences
including the following three phases:
Phase 1:
Establishment of data link
The sending station confirms that the receiving station is ready to
receive data.
Phase 2:
Data transmission
The sending station transmits data to the target receiving station.
Phase 3:
Release of data link
The sending station confirms whether or not all of the transmitted
data has been correctly received by the receiving station. If yes, the
sending station terminates the data transmission and releases the
data link.
For details about the transmission control sequences and CRC, refer to Appendix B,
B.2, "BHT-Ir protocol."
122
Chapter 3. Communications Operations of the BHT-100Q/100B
[ 2 ] Control Characters
The control characters are classified into two groups: transmission control characters
and text control characters.

Requests suspension of data reception during erasure of the flash
memory.
■ Transparency
The BHT uses the transparent mode which allows the control characters and codes
(e.g., STX, ETX, SOH, and DLE) to be transmitted as normal data in the transmission texts.
To transmit a DLE as normal data, type DLE DLE per DLE.
123
(2)
Text control characters
The text control characters are used to format transmission texts. In the BHT-Ir
protocol, they include the following headers and a terminator.
Symbol
Value
Meaning
Function
DLE SOH 1001h
Start Of Heading
Indicates the start of heading text (Phase

DLE STX
1002h
Start of Text
Indicates the start of data text (Phase 2).
DLE ETX
1003h
End of Text
Indicates the end of data text (Phase 2).
In the BHT-Ir protocol, you cannot change the values of the headers and terminator
with the protocol functions in BHT-BASIC.
124
Chapter 3. Communications Operations of the BHT-100Q/100B
[ 3 ] Basic Format of Transmission Messages
Basically, the BHT transmits data as units of a file. First, it transmits a heading text
which includes the attribute information of a file (e.g., file name and the number of
data texts) to be transmitted. Following the heading text, it transmits the data text in
the file. A heading text and data text comprise a text.
In actual text transmission, the text is divided into several blocks, then a header,
terminator, serial number, receiver station's ID, and CRC-16 (Cyclic Redundancy Check)
are added to each block. This procedure forms a transmission block. A set of
transmission blocks makes up one transmission message.
Shown below is an example of a transmission message formed with the BHT-Ir
protocol.

In the above figure, DLE SOH, DLE STX and DLE ETX are text control characters as
described in [ 2 ] Control Characters, (2). An ID denotes the ID number of the receiver
station, expressed by two bytes. A serial number is expressed by a five-digit decimal
number, starting from 00001 to 32767, and identifies data texts. For the CRC-16, refer
to Appendix B, B.2, "BHT-Ir protocol, " [ 3 ].
You can use the control characters for expressing IDs, serial numbers, or text data.

4.1 System Errors
If some error occurs when the power is turned on or during program execution, one of
the following error messages will appear on the LCD.
System Program error
■ Problem
A System Program error has occurred.
If this error occurs, the BHT beeps five times
(for 0.1 second per beep) and then turns itself
off.
■ Solution
Contact your nearest dealer.
Low battery indication—Level 1
■ Problem
When the power is turned on or off or during execution of program (System Mode or application),
the battery output level has dropped below a
specified lower level limit.
If low battery is detected, the BHT displays
this message for approx. 2 seconds and beeps
three times (for 0.1 second per beep). After
that, it will resume previous regular operation.
■ Solution
The battery recharge or replacement time will
come soon.
If the BHT is loaded with the rechargeable battery
cartridge, replace or charge it. (For the charging
procedure, refer to Chapter 5, Section 5.5.)

5.5 Charging the Rechargeable Battery Cartridge (using the CU-7001)
You may charge a rechargeable battery cartridge loaded in the BHT.
Service Life of Rechargeable Battery Cartridge:
Lithium-ion batteries used in the rechargeable battery cartridge will gradually
deteriorate during the repeated cycles of charging and discharging due to its
properties, even under normal use. When the battery service period becomes
shortened due to its deterioration even if it has been charged for the specified hours,
replace the battery cartridge with a new one. Generally, it is necessary to replace
the battery cartridge after it has undergone approx. 300 cycles of charging and
discharging operation.
(1)
Plug the AC adapter of the CU-7001 into the wall socket.
The POWER LED on the CU-7001 lights in green.
(2)
Place the BHT loaded with a battery cartridge onto the CU-7001.
The BHT turns on the indicator LED in red and starts charging. The charging time
is approx. 4 hours.
Upon completion of charging, the indicator LED turns green.

Data transmission may accidentally involve various types of errors. The BHT-protocol
is designed to recover from those errors as frequently as possible.
What follows is the BHT-protocol for phases 1 through 3.
Phase 1: Establishment of Data Link
■ Normal phase 1
The sending station transmits an ENQ to the receiving station. Upon receipt of an
ACK from the receiving station, the sending station shifts to phase 2.

■ Phase 1 with iterated ENQ transmission due to no response or invalid
response
If the sending station receives no response or any invalid response from the
receiving station in response to an ENQ sent, it iterates sending of an ENQ at threesecond intervals up to 10 times.
If the sending station receives an ACK before sending an ENQ ten times, it shifts to
phase 2.

You may modify the number of ENQ iterations for the sending station. The
default is 10 times at three-second intervals. For details, refer to the SET
PROTOCOL screen in System Mode (pp. 65 and 67) and the XFILE statement
given in "BHT-BASIC Programmer's Manual (BHT-100 series)."
164
Appendices
■ Abnormal termination of phase 1 (Abort of phase 1)
If the sending station receives no ACK from the receiving station after sending an
ENQ 10 times in succession, it sends an EOT to the receiving station after three
seconds from the 10th ENQ to terminate the message transmission abnormally.

or by using the XFILE statement (refer to the "BHT-BASIC Programmer's
Manual (BHT-100 series).")
165
Phase 2: Data Transmission
■ Normal phase 2
The sending station first sends a transmission block containing the heading text.
Each time the sending station receives an ACK from the receiving station, it sends a
transmission block containing the data texts as shown below. Upon receipt of an
ACK in response to the last transmission block (data text n), the sending station
shifts to phase 3.
If a transmission message contains no data text, the sending station transmits the
heading text only.

■ Phase 2 with NAK
If the sending station receives a NAK from the receiving station in response to a
transmission block containing text data m, it sends that transmission block again
immediately as shown below.
If the sending station receives an ACK before receiving a NAK 10 times in succession, it continues the subsequent message transmission.

[ 2 ] Aborting Data Transmission
Pressing the C key aborts data transmission.
If the C key is pressed during downloading, the BHT transmits an EOT and aborts the
file transmission.
If it is pressed during uploading, the BHT transmits the current transmission block
followed by EOT and then aborts the file transmission.
171
[ 3 ] BCC for Horizontal Parity Checking
To check whether data has been transmitted accurately, the BHT supports horizontal
parity checking for every transmission block.
In horizontal parity checking, a horizontal parity byte so called BCC (Block Check
Character) is suffixed to an ETX of every transmission block.
In the BHT-protocol, every parity bit of BCC is set so that all set bits at the same bit
level (including a parity bit) in the characters contained in the transmission block have
an even number by binary addition, excluding SOH, STX, and functions SOH$ and
STX$.
(For details about SOH$ and STX$ which are protocol functions unique to BHT-BASIC,
refer to the "BHT-BASIC Programmer's Manual (BHT-100 series).")

■ Phase 2 with suspension of data reception for erasure of the flash memory
If the receiving BHT requires the flash memory to be erased for receiving downloaded
files, it sends a sequence of WACK and IDs to the sending station to suspend the
data transmission.
Upon receipt of the sequence of WACK and IDs, the sending station stops the data
transmission until any response comes from the receiving station for one minute.
If no response comes within one minute, the sending station sends a sequence of
DLE EOT and IDs and then aborts the current transmission.

[ 3 ] CRC
To check whether data has been transmitted accurately, the BHT-Ir protocol supports
CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Check) which employs the CRC-16 generating system. In
CRC, a CRC character is suffixed to a sequence of DLE ETX of every transmission block.
Operands for CRC-16
The CRC generates CRC-16 from all bytes of a transmission block excluding DLE SOH
or DLE STX characters (which are at the head of a transmission block), DLE character
of DLE ETX and DLE character of DLE DLE in the text.
CRC operation
The CRC system generates CRC-16 as follows: It multiplies the polynomial formed by
aligning all of the bits starting from the LSB of the first byte to the MSB of the last byte
in a transmission block in descending order, by X16. Next, divide the polynomial by
the generative polynomial X16 + X15 + X2 + 1. The remainder is the value of CRC-16.
