The MX3 Hand Held Computer
Introduction
The MX3 is a rugged, portable, hand-held PC-compatible computer capable of wireless data
communications. The MX3 can transmit information using either a 900 MHz or 2.4 GHz radio
(with an internally mounted antenna). It can store information for later transmission through an
RS-232 or InfraRed port. The MX3 is horizontally oriented and features electroluminescent
backlighting for the display. The keys on the keypad are constructed of a phosphorescent material
that can easily be seen in dimly lighted areas.
The MX3 is an MS-DOS compatible computer designed to run as a batch unit or run software
applications such as LXE’s Terminal Emulator applications (ANSI Plus, LDS Plus, DOS 5250,
DOS 3270, TN3270 and TN5250).
The “MX3 Reference Guide” contains MX3 technical information and advanced functions.
Note:
The 900MHz radios are obsolete. Terminal emulation software used by mobile devices
with 900MHz radios is also obsolete, e.g. 3270 DOS TE, 5250 DOS TE.
Note:
Always store unused mobile devices with a fully charged main battery pack installed.
LXE recommends the mobile device be connected to an external power source
periodically to retain optimum power levels in the main battery pack and the backup
battery.

Display Backlight
A display backlighting feature is available and depending upon programming, will operate in one
of three ways:
1.
Backlighting Off. This is the most efficient way to operate the computer with
battery power.
2.
Backlighting On For A Short Time. This will provide display backlighting for a
predetermined amount of time. Use of this feature will result in reduced battery life.
3.
Backlighting On Whenever The Unit Is On. This provides full time
backlighting to the display whenever the unit is turned on. It greatly reduces the
expected battery life.
Display Backlight Timer
When the Display Backlight Timer expires the display backlight is turned off. The default value
for this parameter is 3 seconds. The value can be adjusted using the BIOS Setup. Refer to the
“MX3 Reference Guide”.
Any of the following will wake the display and display backlight:
•
Display update by host or currently running application on the MX3
•
Any key on the keypad
•
Pen-touch on a touch screen display
When the display wakes up, the Display Backlight Timer will begin the countdown again. When
any of the above events occur prior to the timer expiring, the timer starts the countdown again.
The ability of touch screen activation to wake up the MX3 is configurable in BIOS Setup. Refer to
the “MX3 Reference Guide” for details.

Rows
Columns
8x8
30
80
8x16
15
80
The MX3 display window can be panned up and down using keypress sequences so the user can
view an entire virtual 640 x 480 pixel screen.
Initially, using the default 8 x 16 pixel font, the top half (15 rows x 80 columns) of a 25 line
virtual screen is displayed.
When the top portion of the virtual screen is displayed and the Pan Down key sequence is pressed,
rows 10 through 25 are shown on the display (this action leaves rows 10 through 15 on the
screen).
When the Home key sequence (2nd + Left Arrow) is pressed, the cursor moves to the top left hand
corner of the virtual screen display.
Note:
Additional fonts are supported in graphics mode and are dependent on the Terminal
Emulator.
Please refer to the “MX3 Reference Guide” for technical information about the Panning function.

An API can be run to switch power to the DB9 Serial port. If a tethered scanner is connected to
the Serial Port without switching the power to the COM2 port (serial port), the scanner will not
work.
IR Port
Figure 9 IR Port
The InfraRed (IR) port provides a means of transferring information to a device with a similar
port and the proper software. The IR port can be used to communicate with printers or a host
computer with the use of an adapter.
When sending data through the IR port to another MX3’s IR port, make sure both units are in
close proximity to each other. The IR operating envelope has a distance range of 2 cm (.79 inches)
to 1 meter (3.2 feet) with a viewing angle of 30 degrees.
The IR Port is specified as COM 2 and is a bi-directional half-duplex infrared port. It supports the
Slow IrDA (Infrared Data Access) PHY Layer standard that allows communication speeds up to
19.2k baud.

How To
•
Turn the MX3 off
Hold the Power key down for 4 beeps (signifies 3 or more
seconds) then release.
•
Turn the MX3 on
Hold the Power key down until the display turns on.
•
Force the Suspend state
Tap the Power key (1 beep). The Suspend state is useful for
breaks or when swapping batteries as the unit does not need to
be turned off prior to replacing the Main Battery.
•
Wake from Suspend
Wake the MX3 from Suspend (before the 5 minute timer
expires) by tapping the Power key.
Note:
The Suspend timer is configurable in the BIOS Setup. See the “MX3 Reference Guide”.
Off Timer and Critical Suspend Mode
The MX3 is automatically turned off when the Off Timer expires. The Off Timer runs when the
MX3 is in Critical Suspend mode. The MX3 automatically goes into Critical Suspend when the
Main Battery is dead or removed. The Off Timer default is 5 minutes. The Off Timer value can be
adjusted using the BIOS Setup.

Cradles
Cradles
There are two types of cradles: a desktop cradle for table top charging/communication
applications and a vehicle mount cradle for vehicle mounted charging/communication
applications.
The cradles give the MX3 the ability to communicate with a host computer and other equipment.
In addition, using wall AC adapters or DC/DC converters, the cradle transfers power to the
internal charging circuitry of the MX3 and, in turn, the MX3 recharges the Main Battery.
The MX3 can be either on or off while in the cradle. The MX3 can be inserted and removed from
the cradle with one hand.
Cables are available from LXE for connecting the cradle to a printer, a personal computer or a
barcode printer. Tethered scanners (for RS-232 cradle connection) are also available from LXE.
Note:
The “MX3 Cradle Reference Guide” contains cradle installation and technical
information.
Desktop Cradle
Figure 20 MX3 in the Desktop Cradle
How To:
Lower the MX3 straight into the cradle, tilt it forwards and then let it rest backwards into the
cradle. Ensure that the MX3 is properly seated on the charging contacts. The CHGR LED will
illuminate green when the MX3 is correctly seated in the cradle. The CHGR LED will illuminate
red when the MX3 main battery is being charged (in a cradle connected to an external power
source).
To remove the MX3, tilt the MX3 forward and lift it straight up out of the cradle.

Enter Data
You can enter data into the MX3 through several different methods. The Scanner window
provides barcode data entry, the RS-232 or the IR port are used to input/output data, and the
keypad provides manual entry.
Keypad Entry
Refer to “Appendix A - Key Maps” sections titled “IBM 3270 Specific Maps” and
the “IBM 5250 Specific Maps” for 3270 and 5250 specific keypresses.
The keypad is used to manually input data that is not collected otherwise. Almost any function
that a full sized computer keyboard can provide is duplicated on the MX3 keypad but it may take
a few more keystrokes to accomplish a keyed task.
Almost every key has two or three different functions. The primary alpha or numeric character is
printed on the key.
For example, when the 2nd key is selected pressing the desired second-function key will produce
the 2nd character. The specific 2nd character is printed above the corresponding key.

Batteries
Batteries
Note:
New batteries must be charged prior to use.
The MX3 computer is designed to work with a Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) battery from LXE. Under
normal conditions it should last approximately eight to ten hours before requiring a recharge. The
more you use the scanner or the RF transmitter, the shorter the time required between battery
recharges. The MX3 keeps date and time valid for a minimum of four days using a fully charged
Backup Battery and a Main Battery that has reached the Low Warning point.
Main Battery
The main battery has a rugged plastic enclosure that is designed to withstand the ordinary rigors
of an industrial environment. Exercise care when transporting the battery making sure it does not
come in contact with excessive heat or any power source other than an LXE MultiCharger or
MX3 unit.
About Lithium-Ion Batteries
Li-Ion batteries (like all batteries) gradually lose their capacity over time (in a linear fashion) and
never just stop working. Use the following chart to determine when to replace the battery:
100% capacity
80% capacity
1400 mAh
1120 mAh
Deciding when to replace a Main Battery pack in the MX3 is difficult to quantify because it is
very application specific. 1000 mAh may be the cutoff for one customer who uses the computer
frequently, while 300 mAh may be perfectly fine for a customer who occasionally uses the
computer. You need to determine the point at which battery life becomes unacceptable for your
business practices and replace the main battery pack before that point.
Backup Battery
The internal Nickel Cadmium (NiCd) backup battery provides power to the unit for a short
amount of time when the main battery has been depleted, removed or has failed. The backup
battery requires no user intervention. Replacement is performed by LXE.
Battery Hot-Swapping
Note:
Unless you are hot-swapping the battery, make sure the MX3 is turned OFF before
removing the battery.
When the battery power level is low, the MX3 will signal the operator with a continuous, onesecond beep. Beeping will continue until the battery is replaced or the battery completely depletes.
You can replace the main battery without shutting the unit off. Simply replace the discharged
battery with a fully-charged battery. The backup battery will retain data during a main battery hotswap for at least five minutes.

Critical Suspend State
The Critical Suspend state can only be entered because of a Main Battery Power failure. A Main
Battery Power failure can occur because the battery’s energy has been depleted or the battery has
been removed.
When the MX3 is in the Critical Suspend state the main battery LED illuminates, the System LED
blinks red, all peripherals are shut down, the CPU clock is stopped, power is removed from the
PCMCIA card(s) and the MX3 may beep. The MX3 is saving the state prior to the main battery
failing and cannot be used.
If a new fully charged main battery is installed before the Off Timer expires the MX3 will
transition to the Suspend state. To resume operation tap the Power key for one beep.
If the Off Timer expires the MX3 will turn itself off and all unsaved information is lost. Insert a
fully charged main battery and press the Power button to turn the MX3 back on.
Note:
The Off Timer can be configured in the BIOS Setup (see the “MX3 Reference Guide”.)
