Bluetooth
Bluetooth-equipped devices can communicate without wires, using frequency-hopping spread spectrum (FHSS)
radio frequency (RF) to transmit and receive data in the 2.4 GHz Industry Scientific and Medical (ISM) band
(802.15.1). Bluetooth wireless technology is specifically designed for short-range (10 meters (32.8 feet))
communication and low power consumption.
Devices with Bluetooth capabilities can exchange information (e.g., files, appointments, and tasks) with other
Bluetooth enabled devices such as printers, access points, and other mobile devices.
Adaptive Frequency Hopping
Adaptive Frequency Hopping (AFH) is a method of avoiding fixed frequency interferers, and can be used with
Bluetooth voice. All devices in the piconet (Bluetooth network) must be AFH-capable in order for AFH to work.
There is no AFH when connecting and discovering devices. Avoid making Bluetooth connections and discoveries
during critical 802.11b communications. AFH for Bluetooth consists of four main sections:
• Channel Classification - A method of detecting an interference on a channel-by-channel basis, or
pre-defined channel mask.
• Link Management - Coordinates and distributes the AFH information to the rest of the Bluetooth network.
• Hop Sequence Modification - Avoids interference by selectively reducing the number of hopping channels.
• Channel Maintenance - A method for periodically re-evaluating the channels.
When AFH is enabled, the Bluetooth radio “hops around” (instead of through) the 802.11b high-rate channels. AFH
coexistence allows Enterprise devices to operate in any infrastructure.
The Bluetooth radio in this device operates as a Class 2 device power class. The maximum output power is 2.5
mW and the expected range is 10 meters (32.8 ft.). A definition of ranges based on power class is difficult to obtain
due to power and device differences, and whether one measures open space or closed office space.
NOTE It is not recommended to perform Bluetooth wireless technology inquiry when high rate 802.11b operation is
required.
Security
The current Bluetooth specification defines security at the link level. Application-level security is not specified. This
allows application developers to define security mechanisms tailored to their specific need. Link-level security
occurs between devices, not users, while application-level security can be implemented on a per-user basis. The
Bluetooth specification defines security algorithms and procedures required to authenticate devices, and if needed,
encrypt the data flowing on the link between the devices. Device authentication is a mandatory feature of Bluetooth
while link encryption is optional.
Pairing of Bluetooth devices is accomplished by creating an initialization key used to authenticate the devices and
create a link key for them. Entering a common personal identification number (PIN) in the devices being paired
generates the initialization key. The PIN is never sent over the air. By default, the Bluetooth stack responds with no
key when a key is requested (it is up to user to respond to the key request event). Authentication of Bluetooth
devices is based-upon a challenge-response transaction. Bluetooth allows for a PIN or passkey used to create
other 128-bit keys used for security and encryption. The encryption key is derived from the link key used to
authenticate the pairing devices. Also worthy of note is the limited range and fast frequency hopping of the
Bluetooth radios that makes long-distance eavesdropping difficult.
Recommendations are:
3 - 10 ET5X User Guide
• Perform pairing in a secure environment
• Keep PIN codes private and do not store the PIN codes in the device
• Implement application-level security.
Bluetooth Profiles
The device supports the following Bluetooth services:
• Serial Port Profile (SPP) - Allows use of RFCOMM protocol to emulate serial cable connection between two
Bluetooth peer devices. For example, connecting the device to a printer.
• Handsfree Profile (HFP) - Allow car hands-free kits to communicate with mobile phones in the car.
• Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) - Allows the device to stream stereo-quality audio to a wireless
headset or wireless stereo speakers.
• Object Push Profile (OPP) - Allows the device to push and pull objects to and from a push server.
• Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP) - Allows the device to control A/V equipment to which a user
has access. It may be used in concert with A2DP.
• Human Interface Device Profile (HID) - Allows Bluetooth keyboards, pointing devices, gaming devices and
remote monitoring devices to connect to the device.
• HID Over GATT Profile (HOGP) - Connects human interface devices such as keyboards and mice to a host
device.
• Personal Area Network (PAN) - Allows the use of Bluetooth Network Encapsulation Protocol to provide L3
networking capabilities over a Bluetooth link. Only PANU role is supported.
• Generic Attribute Profile (GATT) - Provides profile discovery and description services for Bluetooth Low
Energy protocol.
• Hard Copy Cable Replacement Profile (HCRP) - Provides a simple wireless alternative to a cable connection
between a device and a printer.
• Dial-up Network Profile (DUN) - Allows the device to access the Internet and other dial-up services using a
Bluetooth enabled mobile phone.
• Device ID Profile (DIP) - allows a device to be identified above and beyond the limitations of the Device Class
already available in Bluetooth. It enables identification of the manufacturer, product id, product version, and
the version of the Device ID specification being met.

CHAPTER 4 DATA CAPTURE
The ET5X supports data capture using:
• SE4710 Expansion Back
• SE4750 Expansion Back.
Scanning Considerations
Scanning consists of; aim, scan and decode. Scanning performance can be optimized by considering the range
and the scanning angle:
• Range
Any scanning device decodes well over a particular working range (minimum and maximum distances from
the bar code). This range varies according to bar code density and scanning device optics.
Scanning within range brings quick and constant decodes; scanning too close or too far away prevents
decodes. Move the scanner closer and further away to find the right working range for the bar codes being
scanned. However, the situation is complicated by the availability of various integrated scanning modules.
The best way to specify the appropriate working range per bar code density is through a chart called a
decode zone for each scan module. A decode zone simply plots working range as a function of minimum
element widths of bar code symbols.
• Angle
The scan angle is important for optimizing decode performance. When laser beams reflect directly back into
the scanner from the bar code, this specular reflection can “blind” the scanner.
To avoid this, scan the bar code so that the beam does not bounce directly back. But do not scan at too sharp
an angle; the scanner needs to collect scattered reflections from the scan to make a successful decode.
Practice quickly shows what tolerances to work within.
NOTE Contact the Zebra Global Customer Support if chronic scanning difficulties develop. Decoding of properly
printed bar codes should be quick and effortless.
Imaging
The RS507 and CS4070 have the following features:
4 - 2 ET5X User Guide
• Omnidirectional (360°) reading of a variety of bar code symbologies, including the most popular linear, postal,
PDF417, and 2D matrix code types.
• The ability to capture and download images to a host for a variety of imaging applications.
• Advanced intuitive laser aiming for easy point-and-shoot operation.
The imager uses digital camera technology to take a digital picture of a bar code, stores the resulting image in its
memory, and executes state-of-the-art software decoding algorithms to extract the data from the image.
Expansion Back
The Expansion Backs are bar code scanning solutions for both 1D and 2D bar code symbologies. Expansion
Backs are available in the following configurations:
• SE4710 Expansion Back for 8” tablet
• SE4750 Expansion Back for 8” tablet
• SE4710 Expansion Back for 10” tablet
• SE4750 Expansion Back for 10” tablet.
