Introduction

Overview

Note: LXE’s MX5 running Microsoft Windows Pocket PC 2000 or Pocket PC 2002 is obsolete.

The replacement mobile device for this product is the MX5 running Windows CE .NET.

The LXE® MX5 is a rugged, portable, hand-held computer that uses Microsoft® Windows® for

Pocket PC 2000 or Pocket PC 2002 software. The MX5 can transmit information using a 2.4 GHz radio (with an internally mounted antenna) and it can store information for later transmission through an RS-232, InfraRed or communication port.

The mobile device is vertically oriented and features backlighting for the display and the keypad.

The touch-screen display supports graphic features and icons that the Pocket PC operating system supports.

It can be scaled from a limited function batch computer to an integrated RF scanning computer. It is powered by a 2800 mAh Lithium-Ion main battery pack and an internal backup battery.

A stylus is attached to the MX5 to assist in entering data and configuring the unit.

Important Battery Information

Note: This mobile device's backup battery maintains it’s charge by drawing power from the main battery pack. Always store unused devices with a fully charged main battery pack installed. LXE recommends an in-use mobile device be frequently connected to an external power source to maintain optimum power levels in the main battery pack and the backup battery. When the backup battery and main battery pack are dead, the mobile device reverts to the last saved setup defaults when a fully charged main battery pack is installed and the device is powered On again.

Until the main battery and backup battery are completely depleted, the MX5 is always drawing power from the batteries (On).

New batteries must be fully charged prior to use.

Whenever possible, use the AC power adapter with the MX5 to conserve the main battery and recharge the backup battery.

When a new battery is installed in the MX5 for the first time (or when the Backup battery is completely depleted), the Time and Date reverts to it’s default values.

E-EQ-MX5PCOGWW-G-ARC MX5 User’s Guide

2 Overview

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. This is important to remember -- the MX5 is always 'on' even when in the

Suspend state and draws battery power at all times. Tap the Windows icon

| Settings | System |

Handheld Settings

tab to check the battery status and power reading.

The following chart is an approximation. Actual battery capacity will vary based on usage, ambient temperature and peripherals drawing power from the MX5:

100% capacity

80% capacity

2800 mAh minimum

2240 mAh minimum

Deciding when to put a fully charged Main Battery pack in the MX5 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 500 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.

Pocket PC Versions

Access: the Windows icon | Settings | System tab | Handheld | Versions tab

Your MX5 may be running either Pocket PC 2000 or Pocket PC 2002. This manual highlights the differences in this way:

Pocket PC 2000

The menu path or command syntax for Pocket PC 2000 units only.

Pocket PC 2002

The menu path or command syntax for Pocket PC 2002 units only.

If there is no distinction between Pocket PC 2000 and Pocket PC 2002, the instruction or information is the same for both versions.

Note: LXE’s MX5 running Microsoft Windows Pocket PC 2000 or Pocket PC 2002 is obsolete.

The replacement mobile device for this product is the MX5 running Windows CE .NET.

Enter Data

You can enter data into the MX5 through several different methods. The Scanner aperture provides barcode data entry, the RS-232 or the IR port are used to input/output data, and the keypad provides manual entry.

MX5's with a touch screen and Microsoft Pocket PC software can use a stylus to input data, the

COM ports and/or the keypad. A virtual keyboard is available in applications that expect keyed input.

Keypad Entry

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 MX5 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.

Please refer to “Appendix A - Key Maps” for instruction on the specific keypresses to access all keypad functions.

Stylus Data Entry

Note: This section is directed to the MX5 daily user. The assumption is that the unit has been configured and the touch panel calibrated by the System Administrator prior to releasing the MX5 for daily use. The touch screen should be calibrated before initial use.

Note: Always use the point of the stylus for tapping or making strokes on the display. Never use an actual pen, pencil or sharp object to write on the touch screen.

The stylus performs the same function as the mouse that is used to point to and click elements on a desk top computer. The stylus is used in the same manner as a mouse – single tap or double tap to select menu options, drag the stylus across text to select, hold the stylus down to activate slider bars, etcetera.

Hold the stylus as if it were a pen or pencil. Touch an element on the screen with the tip of the stylus then remove the stylus from the screen. The touch screen responds to an actuation force

(touch) of 4 oz. (or greater) of pressure.

The stylus can be used in conjunction with the keyboard and scanner and an input/output device connected to one of the MX5's serial ports.

Touch the stylus to the field of the data entry form to receive the next data feed.

The cursor begins to flash in the field.

The unit is ready to accept data from either the physical keypad, virtual keyboard, integrated scanner or a scanner connected to the serial port on the cradle, if the scanner applet is configured correctly.

30 COM Ports

USB Port

The USB port requires a DB26 to USB cable (available from LXE). The serial port/USB port also supports serial data transfer (using a null modem cable) and non-host USB I/O at 1.5 Mbps. The

MX5 automatically detects the cable configuration. Refer to section titled "Accessories" in this manual for part numbers for the DB26-USB cable and the null modem cable.

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.

Figure 22 IR Port on MX5

The IR Port is specified as COM 3 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

115k baud.

When sending data through the IR port to another MX5'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 15 centimeters (6 inches) with a viewing angle of 30 degrees.

Batteries

Main Battery

Note: On first use the MX5 batteries should be charged with an external power source (i.e. AC

Adapter) – 3 hours for the Main Battery and 7 hours for the Backup Battery. New Main

Battery packs alone must be charged prior to first use -- this process takes up to four hours in an LXE Multi-Charger.

The MX5 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 MX5 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.

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 Multi-charger or

MX5 unit.

The fasteners are connected to the Main Battery pack and remain with the Battery Pack through it’s life cycle. Contact your LXE representative if the fasteners must be replaced for any reason.

Backup Battery

A fully charged Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) coin cell backup battery provides power to the unit for up to 24 hours when the main battery has been depleted, removed or has failed. The backup battery requires no user intervention. Replacement is performed by LXE. LXE recommends an

MX5 in storage have a charged main battery pack installed.

Note: This mobile device's backup battery maintains it’s charge by drawing power from the main battery pack. Always store unused devices with a fully charged main battery pack installed. LXE recommends an in-use mobile device be frequently connected to an external power source to retain optimum power levels in the main battery pack and the backup battery. When the backup battery and main battery pack are dead, the mobile device reverts to setup defaults when a fully charged main battery pack is installed and the device is powered On again.

Battery Hot-Swapping

Replace the main battery pack after first pressing the power key and placing the MX5 in Suspend

Mode. LXE recommends any work in progress be saved prior to replacing the main battery pack.

Simply replace the discharged main battery with a fully-charged main battery. The backup battery will retain data during a main battery hot-swap.

Place the battery in the battery well, making sure the tabs on the bottom of the battery pack fit into the slots at the bottom end of the battery well. Push the battery down into the battery well while fastening the screws. Fasten the screws tight enough to allow the rubber gasket to create a watertight seal. If the screws do not easily twist into the threaded opening, remove the battery and repeat the process.

Cradles 37

Cradles

Important:

The cradles are not designed to secure an MX5 with a protective padded case. The vehicle cradle is not designed to secure an MX5 with a trigger handle. The desktop cradles will secure mobile device’s with handstraps or trigger handles.

MX5 docking cradles give the MX5 the ability to communicate with a host computer and other devices. In addition, using wall AC adapters or DC/DC converters, the cradle charges the main battery. The MX5 can be either On or in Suspend mode while in the cradles.

LXE offers three desktop cradles and one vehicle cradle:

Standard Desktop Cradle requires AC power before main battery charging can commence. This cradle does not have an active LED on the front housing.

MX5A002DESKCRADLE

Enhanced Desktop Cradle requires AC power before main battery charging can commence. It will charge both the main battery in the MX5 and another MX5 Battery

Pack at the same time. MX5A003EDESKCRADLE

Enhanced Desktop Cradle with Ethernet Port requires AC power before main battery charging and host/client communications can commence. It will charge both the main battery in the

MX5 CE. NET

device and another main battery pack at the same time. MX5A004ETHDESKCRADLE

Vehicle Mount Cradle requires AC/DC power before main battery charging can commence. MX5A001VMCRADLE

Note: LXE offers a device similar in appearance to the MX5 – the MX5 CE. NET device. All

MX5 cradles can be used by the MX5 running Pocket PC except for the Enhanced

Desktop Cradle with Ethernet Port, which has been developed specifically for the MX5

CE. NET device, and cannot be used by the MX5 running Pocket PC.

Cradle COM port and power cables are available from LXE. The RS-232 connector is located on the back of the cradle. When the MX5 is properly docked, the COM 1 RS-232 interface connects with the DA9 RS-232 port in the cup at the front of the cradle. The cup at the back of the desktop cradles accept a single Battery Pack for charging.

MX5 cradles are not approved for use in Hazardous Locations.
