Attention!
This symbol appears before text passages that have to be observed by all means. Failure
to heed this information may lead to injuries to personnel or damage to the equipment.
Attention laser radiation!
This symbol warns of possible danger due to laser radiation detrimental to health.
Notice!
This symbol indicates text passages containing important information.
1.2
Important Terms
Aspect ratio
The ratio of code height (bar length) to code length (number of characters). The CRT decoder is designed to read even bar codes with extremely small code heights
Autofocus function
The capability of the BCL to detect by itself the distance of the objects in the read process without using external sensors and automatically adapt the focus position to the reading level of the bar code.
BCL-Config
PC program, running under Windows®9x/ME or WindowsNT®/2000. Used for off-line parameterization (adaptation to the onsite read condition) and online menu-driven operation of the BCL. The parameter set to be processed is exchanged with the BCL through upload and download.
Capture range
A zone set up by the BCL through increment management and comparison of the code position
around a moving bar code. This makes it possible, among other purposes, to separate bar codes with
identical contents and of the same code types.
Code angle (CW value)
Current deflection width of the scan line (oscillating mirror) across the scan direction when detecting
a bar code. The code angle is determined by the BCL for each scan. It is used to define a capture
range, for example, to separate bar codes with identical data contents and of the same code types
from each other within one area.

General Information
Code geometry
Bar code length and height.
Code position (CP value)
The position of the first dark bar of a detected bar code along the scan line. It is identified by the BCL
in each scan and, for example, used to separate bar codes with identical data contents. For decoding,
the active evaluation range within the scan line can be defined specifically for an application by presetting the minimum and maximum CP values.
Configuration file
File in the PC program BCL-Config in which a complete parameter set of the BCL is stored for
archiving. The file can be printed in tabular form.
CRT decoder
Purpose-designed decoder for reading bar codes with extremely small code heights as well as lowquality or smudged print.
Data output string
Structured data telegram of the read result that the BCL outputs in the host interface. The structure is
flexible and adaptable within a wide range to the requirements of the further processing of data. In contrast, the data output format of the service interface is unchangeable.
Decoder, decoding
Code type-dependent evaluation routine for the reconstruction of the read bar code in electronic form
so that its data content can be decoded.
Angle which the scan line covers at both sides each of the centre position CW=50 (equivalent to 0°)
when deflected by the oscillating mirror. Also called oscillation angle.
Deflection width
Deflection of the scan line by way of the oscillating mirror across the scanning direction to both sides
of the centre position CW=50 (equivalent to light exit under 105°). Also called oscillation amplitude.
While the deflection width is set at maximum in the "oscillation at predefined amplitude" mode, in the
"oscillation at variable amplitude" mode, it is adjusted for each distance configuration through the "Oscillating Mirror" Tab in the user interface of BCL-Config.
Distance configuration
Data set in the BCL to establish a focus position of the laser beam for event-driven focus position
switching. The focus position as well as the minimum and maximum code positions are to be entered
in the "Read Configuration" Tab of the user interface in BCL-Config. For the line scanner with oscillating mirror, the oscillation amplitude (deflection width) also have to be entered. The depths of field for
the individual focus positions can be obtained from the specification diagram in relation to the resolution.

General Information
Distance detection
Device detecting in graduation distances from objects carrying the bar codes. One example is the
downward reading of a series of photoelectric sensors arranged in a vertical row beside a transportation line. The ranges for focus position switching are defined through combinations of the switched inputs SE 2 to SE 6 and the cross-reference list for distance configurations. Only required when the
autofocus function is not applied.
Distance profile
When using the autofocus function with substraction of background difference, the background without object is to be taught in the BCL before a read can take place. In a special measurement mode,
the BCL generates a profile of the distance variation in its field of view along the scan line. This profile
enables the BCL to detect objects in the reading field and adjust the required focus position on the
plane of the bar code on the object.
Download
The process of transmitting the parameter set that was modified off-line in the user interface of BCLConfig from the PC to the BCL. BCL-Config always transmits a copy to the operating memory (RAM)
of the BCL.
External parameter memory
Optional accessory integrated in a plug cover. This design renders an easy exchange of device possible by locating the parameter set of the BCL as copy in an external memory (EEPROM). The replacement device accesses the memory directly and does not need to be configured manually.
Focus position switching
The capability of the BCL to shift the focus of the laser beam within a wide range on the read level.
Focus position switching is event-driven (e.g. through distance detection) or occurs dynamically in the
autofocus function.
Focus position
Distance of the focal point of the emitted laser beam from the reading window. Adjustable via the optical system in the BCL. Defines a distance-dependent depth of field range (DOF) in which the bar
code can be detected.
Function interfaces
Switched inputs and outputs of the BCL.
Good Read
In the concluded reading cycle, the BCL either detected the bar code or the required number of bar
codes given by the evaluation conditions set in the parameters.

General Information
Header
Data block in the read result of the host interface. It serves as header in the data output string for subsequent data contents of the bar codes. It contains, depending on configuration, read diagnosis data
and/or constants (e.g. alphabets). In its basic setting, it is empty.
Host interface
Main data interface of the BCL with configurable data output format. The host interface serves, among
others, to output the read result in telegram form to the host/PLC. It is used to integrate the BCL in the
Leuze network or build up a stand-alone system. It offers various transmission protocols.
Increment management
In the BCL for certain applications, it serves to unambiguously distinguish between bar codes which
have identical contents and move during the read process.
Leuze multiNet plus
Special, powerful combination of a maximum of 32 BCLs with high data transmission rates via the RS
485 interface. Co-ordination (polling) and connection of the BCLs to the host by means of the network
master MA 31.
Line scanner with oscillating mirror
Line scanner that additionally deflects its laser beam across the scanning direction to the two sides of
a centre position by means of an oscillating mirror. In this way, the BCL can also search larger areas
and spaces for bar codes. For the search, optimizable functional sequences of the oscillating mirror
are also possible (variable deflection for each distance configuration, One-shot) beside the simple deflection at maximum oscillation amplitude.
Scanner deflecting its focussed laser beam by way of a polygon mirror wheel with parallel-axis mirrors
at an extremely high speed. In this way, it generates a light dot on the read level running back and
forth on a line, and due to its relative inertia, appearing to the human eye as a "static" scan line.
Multiple reading
Selectable number of reads that has to supply identical internal read results (data contents) from exactly the same bar code before the BCL outputs the read result.
No Read format
Special, parameterizable data block replacing every expected and not detected bar code in the data
output string of the host interface for a No Read. The format consists of a selectable combination of
the error string and separator.
No Read
In the concluded reading cycle, the BCL neither detected any bar code nor the required number of bar
codes given by the evaluation conditions set in the parameters.

General Information
Object height detection
See distance detection.
One-shot
A directed, single deflection of the oscillating mirror for each reading cycle. It primarily consists of a
slow forward phase (read) and rapid return phase (return to the starting position).
Opening angle a
The angle within the limits of which the laser beam is deflected by the polygon mirror wheel. Before
the reading window, a V-shaped area is formed radially in the scanning direction in which the bar code
to be read must be. If only a part of the opening angle is used (part of the scan line is positioned symmetrically around the middle), there will be a larger depth of field range for the same focus position
and resolution.
Oscillating mirror reversal point
Point of deflection the oscillating mirror is at in which a reversal of direction takes place. This point can
be used to trigger the focus position switching for low-speed applications (search function).
Parameter set
Data set with which the implemented functions are initialised and activated in the BCL. It is transferred
through upload or download from the BCL to BCL-Config or vice versa.
Pine tree effect
This effect of the line scanner with oscillating mirror is a result of the limits set by the active scan line
range (CP value) and the oscillation amplitude (CW value). Hence a "sharp window" of the same size
can be generated in the reading field for every distance configuration for any read distance.
Read diagnosis data
Data that the BCL derives directly from the read process. With these data, it is possible to assess,
among others, the quality of the reading. They are output via the terminal interface, always together
with the read result.
Read range (DOF)
Depth of field range at both sides of the focal point of the laser beam. The size of the range depends
on resolution and read distance.
Read result
Electronic representation of the data contents of the read bar code together with the read diagnosis
data in a data output string after the reading cycle is completed. The read result of the terminal interface has a predefined format for content and output, while the read result of the host interface can be
separately configured for Good Read and No Read and have symbols added to it.

General Information
Reading cycle
Cycle applied externally to the BCL to trigger the internal scan gate time, by way of, for example, a
retro-reflective photo electric sensor or as a result of a command from the host via the serial interface.
Reading field height
The length of the scan line available for the detection of the bar code on the read level. The length
depends on the read distance due to the V principle.
Result status output
Function of the four switched outputs "SWO 1 … SWO 4" in read mode. The signals indicate the status
of the read results, but without displaying its content (e.g. Good Read). The display of the LED "Read
Result" is controlled by the output of "SWO 2".
Scan gate time
Time window in which the BCL activates the laser diode and attempts to detect valid bar codes from
the information read. Depending on the selected output mode of the read result, the scan gate time
may be shorter than the externally applied reading cycle.
Scan line
See line scanner.
Separator
Data block in the read result of the host interface. It serves as separating unit between the data contents of the bar codes. It can either precede or follow the bar codes. It contains, depending on configuration, read diagnosis data and/or constants (e.g. alphabets).
Auxiliary interface (RS 232) of the BCL with predefined data output format. It is always possible to access the BCL from the PC program BCL-Config via this interface.
Specification diagrams
Diagrams for determining the resolution-dependent depth of field range (DOF) with a predefined focus
position.
Standard decoder
Successfully tried and tested decoder of the product series BCL. This device is recommended when
the bar codes have sufficient code heights, small tilt and good print for reading.
Switching sequence
Function for event-driven focus position switching. Sequence of the focus positions to be adjusted one
after the other with the corresponding depths of field. For this purpose, the numbering of the active
distance configurations is entered in the cross-reference list in the desired position.

General Information
Teach-in
The process in which the BCL, in the parameterization mode, is taught the "knowledge" for adapting
to the read condition. Example: Background teach-in for the autofocus function, called distance profile.
Terminator
Data block in the read result of the host interface. It serves to terminate the preceding data content of
the bar code. It contains, depending on configuration, read diagnosis data and/or constants (e.g. alphabets).
Time of transmission
Output time of the read result in relation to the beginning of the reading cycle and of the internal scan
gate time.
Upload
The process of transferring the parameter set from the BCL to the PC in the user interface of BCLConfig. BCL-Config always loads a copy of the current parameter set from the RAM of the BCL. Representation of the parameter values in the tabs. Prerequisite for modifying the current parameter set.
User interface
Windows-based input interface in the PC software BCL-Config for the operation and configuration of
the BCL.

Safety Notices
Internal protective circuits
The BCL has monitoring circuits which switch off the laser diode in case irregularities occur in beam
generation.
The activation/deactivation of the laser diode during the read process is controlled by read clocking
(clock).
10 min. after the start of a continuous reading cycle, a safety circuit (one-shot) automatically switches
off the laser diode during read operation under the clocking types "sensor input" and "serial interface",
but does not terminate the reading cycle. In this case, the BCL outputs a message via the service interface:
"Laser safety time-out"
The reading cycle is to be terminated through a proper clock signal. The next reading cycle reactivates
the laser diode.
The laser diode is permanently switched on in the operating modes "percentage evaluation"
"calibrating help" and "show CP limits" as well as in the clocking type "free-oscillating" in
reading operation.

The Function of the Device
The BCL detects bar codes using a scan line and decodes them. The BCL transmits the data via the
serial host interface to a host/PC for further processing. An overview of the functions of the BCL is
shown in Figure 3.1.

• the CRT decoder for decoding bar codes with small code heights, of bar codes with damaged or
dirty print and for reading extremely tilted bar codes (azimuth angle)
• the tried-and-tested standard decoder of the BCL series
The BCL derives from the read processes useful diagnosis data which can be transferred to the host,
and also contains operation data that can be called up. The read quality can be checked in the operating mode percentage evaluation.
The BCL needs a suitable trigger to start a read process as soon as an object is in the reading field.
The trigger causes a time window ("scan gate time") to open in the BCL for the read process. In the
basic setting, triggering takes place through an external reading cycle sensor. Alternatively, free-oscillating operation or a command via the host interface can also serve as triggers.
Four LED status displays provide optical information on the current operation status.
When triggered externally through a sensor, the switched input "SE 1" informs the BCL when it should
start reading. As an alternative to the autofocus function, focus positions can be switched event-driven
through the five switched inputs "SE 2 … SE 6", and the inputs "SE 5" and "SE 6" can additionally be
assigned special functions. The four switched outputs "SWO 1 … SWO 4" can be assigned various
output functions of the event status and activate external devices, e.g. a PLC.

Leuze electronic
Device Description
The BCL is operated and configured on the user interface of the PC software BCL-Config through the
terminal interface (auxiliary interface) or using command strings through the host interface/service interface.
System, warning and error messages provide assistance in set-up/troubleshooting during commissioning and read operation.
3.1.1 Autofocus Function
With the autofocus function, the BCL is capable of detecting the distance of the object in the read process without resorting to external sensors and can independently tune the focus position to the read
level of the bar code. To this end, the BCL measures the distance of the object in its field of view in
each read, generates an internal distance profile and positions the focal point on the object.
Three operating modes are available for different applications:
• Smallest distance: the BCL focusses on the smallest distance in the distance profile. In this case, it
neglects the background of its field of view. Applied e.g. for open views on the object, without surrounding structures projecting into the read level.
• Difference to the background: the BCL is taught the distance profile of the background of its field of
view without object. Then, the BCL focusses during reading on the object it detects by subtracting
from the distance profile of the background. Applied e.g. for open views on the object with limits set
by structures projecting into the read level.
• Difference to the background with tracking: if there are several objects with different distances in
the reading field at the same time (distance conflict), the BCL focusses on the previous object
below its internal focus position switching. Applied in MSP operation (application with tracking
through the Tracking Portal Controller TPC 400).
The generated distance profile of the background can be displayed in BCL-Config. The field of view
is defined through the selection of the autofocus range, the opening angle and, in the line scanner with
oscillating mirror, additionally through limiting the oscillation amplitude (deflection angle). The parking
position (preferred position) of the focus position from which the BCL refocusses in each read can be
predefined. The same applies to a time or local lag (time-out or hysteresis). If required, an additional
offset can be applied to the focus position which can be adjusted through measurement. In this way,
the offset optimises for the object the depth of field which varies radially in the direction of the scan
line due to the V principle of beam deflection (Figure 3.2).

Device Description
3.1.2 Event-driven Focus Position Switching
As an alternative to autofocus function, the BCL offers the possibility of an event-driven focus position
change, thereby covering a large DOF dynamically. For this purpose, a maximum of eight depths of
field can be defined as distance configurations and focussed on by the optical system in random sequence in read operation (Figure 3.3).

A switch is made whenever the object distance changes (when reading downwards: object height detection). A combination of signals from the switched inputs "SE 2 … SE 6", a command to the host
interface/service interface or the integrated timer (e.g. for the search function) serve to trigger the
switch. In the line scanner with oscillating mirror, the oscillating mirror reversal points of the bilateral
deflections also have a trigger function. The distance configurations are assigned to the switching sequence by a programmable cross-reference list. The distance measurement of the autofocus function
can also be used to assist in defining the distance configurations.

Device Description
3.1.3 Variants of the Scanning Process
Line scanner (standard device)
It generates a scan line. The reading field height (the scan line length useful for evaluation) depends
on the read distance due to the V principle of beam deflection.
Line scanner with oscillating mirror
The oscillating mirror deflects the scan line additionally to both sides across the scan direction at a low
oscillation frequency. In this way, the BCL can also scan larger areas or spaces for bar codes. The
reading field height (the scan line length useful for evaluation) depends on the read distance due to
the V principle of beam deflection.
Aside from parking (fixed position) and the simple deflection at maximum oscillation amplitude, optimised course of function of the oscillating mirror are also possible:
• oscillating at variable oscillation amplitude for each distance configuration
• one-shot: single, defined deflection for each reading cycle (forward and return phase)
3.1.4 Other Components
For information on technical data and features of the connector unit, refer to the data sheet MA 90.
BCL 90 "stand alone"
The bar code reader BCL 90 is operated as a "stand-alone" device. The BCL 90 provides two 15-pin
Sub-HD connectors for the supply voltage, the interface and the switched inputs.
BCL 90 with MA 90
The connector unit MA 90 offers simple electrical installation in conjunction with the BCL 90. We recommend the connector unit MA 90 for each BCL 90 if several BCL are to be networked. It is userfriendly in terms of electrical connection, commissioning and maintenance requiring minimum time input. BCL 90 and MA 90 are arranged separately. The two devices are connected by cable.
Heater
For low-temperature applications to a maximum of –35°C (e.g. in cold storage) an optional heater can
be permanently installed in the BCL. (See below)
External parameter memory
The external parameter memory is located in a plug cover beneath which are the two electrical connectors of the BCL after mounting (IP 65). By having available a copy of the current parameter set of
the BCL, the parameter memory makes it easy and reduces the time needed to replace the BCL on
site. A manual configuration of the exchanged device is thereby omitted.
For application and operation see Section 5.1.1, on page 65.

Device Description
Optional heater
Features:
• Integrated heater (permanently installed)
• Expansion of the area of application of the line scanner to a maximum of -35 °C
(Line scanner with oscillating mirror to a maximum of -35 °C)
• Supply voltage DC 24 V +20%/–10%
• BCL enabling through an internal temperature switch
(switch-on delay about 35 … 40 min for DC 24 V and minimum ambient temperature of -35°)
• required core cross-section (supply voltage): at least 0.75 mm²
Structure:
The heater consists of two parts:
• the front cover heater
• the housing heater
The optional heater is installed and tested to order in the factory. The user cannot install it on site.
Function:
TNT 35/7-24V
When the supply voltage DC 24 V is applied to the BCL, a temperature switch initially only connects
the heater to electrical power. During the heating phase (around 35 min), when the inside temperature
rises above 7 °C, the temperature switch connects the BCL to the supply voltage. This is followed by
the selftest and the changeover to read operation. The LED "Device Ready" lights up showing overall
readiness for operation.
When the inside temperature reaches around 25 °C, another temperature switch turns off the housing
heater to reconnect it when needed. This does not interrupt the read operation. The front cover heater
remains permanently activated. Figure 3.4 shows a diagram of temperature variation in the housing.

Device Description
Electrical connection:
Core cross-section
The required core cross-section of the connection cable for the supply voltage must be at least
0.75 mm². (Also see Section 7.4.2, on page 83)
Power consumption
The energy requirement depends on the model:
• the line scanner with heater typically consumes 75 W and a maximum of 90 W power.
• the line scanner with oscillating mirror and integrated heater typically consumes 75 W and a maximum of 100 W power.
These values apply to operation with unconnected switched outputs.
Outdoor application:
If the BCL with integrated heater is to be operated outdoors, we recommend installing the BCL in an
additional protective housing. This would prevent the front cover becoming dirty with rain, snow or
dust. At the same time, the housing would serve as protection against wind.
3.1.5 Networking
Up to 31 scanners can be networked via the connector unit MA 90 and a bus master MA 31. For this,
every BCL 90 is assigned its own hardware address in the corresponding MA 90. The networking is
carried out through a parallel connection of the individual RS 485 interfaces.
multiNet plus
In the Leuze proprietary multiNet plus, the bus nodes transmit their data one after the other upon request by the network master MA 31. In addition, every bus node declared a slave receives a device
address which is adjusted in the corresponding MA 90 via a coding switch. The device address remains in the MA 90 when the scanner is replaced. The master then transmits the data of all bus nodes
via its host interface to a primary PLC control or a computer, i.e. it "collects" the scanner data in the
network and transmits them via an interface to the host computer. This reduces interface costs (CPs)
and time spent programming the software.

Two-wire RS 485
The Leuze multiNet plus is optimised for fast transmission of scanner data to a primary host computer.
Physically, it consists of a two-wire RS 485 interface controlled by a software protocol, the multiNet
plus protocol. This makes wiring the network easy and inexpensive as slaves are connected to one
another in parallel.
Interface module
Shielded, twisted pair conductors should be used for the multiNet. This allows a total network length
of up to 1200 m. The network is connected to the primary computer via the host interface of MA 31,
which can be equipped with four different physical interface modules. The available options are modules for RS 422, RS 232, TTY or RS 485.

The external parameter memory is an optional supplement to the BCL. It is located in a plug cover and
consists of a permanent, rewritable memory (EEPROM). After being mounted, the two connections of
the BCL are under the plug cover in a common protection class IP 65. Figure 5.1 is a view of the plug
cover. Two pre-assembled connection cables that are permanently connected to the plug cover by PG
screw glands provide the BCL with unaltered signals.

Function
When started, the BCL initialises itself with data stored in its internal parameter set. When a clone of
this parameter set is also kept ready at hand in an external memory, devices can be exchanged quickly. The replacement device does not need to be manually configured first before operation, but automatically accesses the external parameter memory by selecting the start option accordingly. It
downloads the parameter set stored in the parameter memory into its operating memory (RAM).

6.2.5 Selecting the Mounting Site
In selecting the mounting site, the distance between the BCL and host as well as the distance between
the BCL and the bar code have to be taken into consideration.
Distance between the BCL and host
If it is not connected to the Leuze network or a bus connection, the BCL can be mounted at a distance
of max. 1200 m from the host. The actual distance, however, depends on the selected physical type
of the host interface and the adjusted data transmission rate.
See table 7.6 on page 83
Distance between the BCL and MA 90
The MA 90 should not be mounted further than 10 m away from the BCL because the PC accesses
the terminal interface of the BCL through the software BCL-Config via the module (RS 232 type).
6.2.6 Fastening Accessories
The BCL is attached by way of two fastening threads (M6) located above the electrical connections.
Figure 6.2 shows the location of the threads.
The complete housing dimensions of the BCL are shown in Figure 4.1 and Figure 4.2 starting from
page 30.

Figure 6.2: Line scanner as example: position of the fastening threads on the BCL
The BCL can be mounted using the following Leuze mounting supports:
• Bracket support BT 90 W, single No. 500 35 515
• Joint bracket (2 x single bracket supports) BT 90 G, No. 500 35 516
• Quick-action clamping device BT 90 S, No. 500 35 514
TNT 35/7-24V
The mounting supports are designed in such a way that allows diverse mounting variations and the
orientation of the BCL on two levels. Figure 6.3 shows two examples for mounting the device.
The long holes in bracket support No. 500 35 515 and joint bracket No. 500 35 516 allow the BCL to
rotate within an angle of ±15° for a fine adjustment.

6.2.7 Distance between BCL and Bar Code
Principle Orientation of the Scan Line to the Bar Code
Depending on application, either the line scanner or line scanner with oscillating mirror version of the
BCL is used. Figure 6.4 represents the principle orientation of the BCL based on the two scanning
processes to the bar code on the object.

Read distance to the bar code and opening angle a
The distance between the reading window of the BCL and the bar code may not exceed the technical
limits specified for the device. Section Figure 4.3:, on page 34 and Section 4.3.4, on page 40 represent
the variation of reading field height with read distance at various resolutions (module widths).
Figure 6.5 defines the read distance a from the reading window and the opening angle a for both scanning processes.

The line scanner’s useful opening angle a is max. 56° and that of the line scanner with oscillating mirror is max. 50°. The reading field height (scan line length) depends on the read distance due to the V
principle of beam deflection.

Angle adjustment of the BCL
The optimum alignment of the BCL is accomplished when the scan line scans the code bars almost
at a right angle (90°) (Figure 6.4). All read angles that are possible between the scan line and bar code
must be taken account of (Figure 6.6 and Table 6.1).

Table 6.1: Permissible read angle between scan line and bar code
If the light from the scan line hits the surface of the bar code at an exact right angle, the light scattered
back and received may cause disturbing reflections. To avoid this effect, the BCL has to be mounted
in such a way that the exiting light is tilted in relation to the vertical (Figure 6.7).

Figure 6.7: Avoiding surface reflections: angle between exiting light and bar code
(tilt out of the vertical)
In line scanners with oscillating mirrors, the laser beam exits at an angle of 105° from the housing
when passing through the zero position (CW=50) in oscillation operation. The device can only be
mounted with its edge flush to the transport system when the amplitudes (deflection widths) are small.
Otherwise, the device is also to be mounted at a slope of 15° to obtain symmetrical deflection ranges.

Notice!
In oscillation operation at variable amplitude, the scan line always has to pass over the zero
position (CW=50). Therefore, oscillating in the range of e.g. 60 CW to 80 CW is not
possible, but allowed in the range of e.g. 40 CW to 80 CW.
In oscillation operation at variable amplitude, the scan line always has to pass over the zero position
(CW=50). Therefore, oscillating in the range of e.g. 60 CW to 80 CW is not possible, but allowed in
the range of e.g. 40 CW to 80 CW.
6.2.8 Counting Direction of the Code Position CP and Code Angle CW
The BCL can scan and decode several bar codes in each reading. In this process, it determines for
each bar code its read diagnosis data relating to its location:
• the position (CP value) of the bar code middle within the scan line
• additionally for scanning processes based on oscillating mirrors, the deflection angle of the scan
line (CW value), within which the bar code middle is detected
Figure 6.8 shows the counting direction of the code position and code angle. In the line scanner, a
small triangle above the reading window marks the counting direction of the code position.
By determining the two kinds of data, it is possible to separate the same bar codes (identical in respect
to code type, code length and data content ), and the BCL is able to correlate bar code data of the
read result locally to bar code positions on the object.

Notice!
In the base setting, the BCL does not output the values "CP" and "CW" in the read result of
the host interface (only line scanner with oscillating mirror). Should this be requested for an
evaluation in the host, the output can be activated in the separator of the output string via
the user interface of BCL-Config.

5.
Prepare the mounting base for installing the mounting support of the BCL as described in Section 6.2.2, on page 69.
Place the object with bar code in the intended location in which the reading should take place,
within the field of view of the BCL (no transport movement).
Orient the BCL to the bar code according to the scanning process and estimating by eyesight in
such a way that
• for line scanners, the back side of the device bearing the LED indicators is almost parallel to
the bar code surface.
• for line scanners with oscillating mirrors, the broad lateral wall (back side of the oscillating
mirror) is almost parallel to the bar code surface.
During the adjustment of the position, take account of all possible reading angles in subsequent readings (Figure 6.6).
In case this is relevant for an evaluation, you may have to take note of the counting direction of
the code position and code angle (Figure 6.8).
Install the mounting support of the BCL on the mounting base.
Danger of damaging the housing!
The maximum reach of the two fastening threads M6 is 7 mm. Longer screws will damage
the housing.
• Use screws of appropriate lengths.

6.4.2 Mounting the External Reading Cycle Sensor
When the BCL is triggered via an external sensor, the sensor must be mounted near the BCL. In the
base setting, this type of trigger with the switched input "sensor" is selected as trigger. The debouncing
time of the input is 30 ms in the base setting.
Figure 6.9 shows two examples of the mounting location of a retro-reflective photo electric sensor.
The location depends on the distance a of the bar code to the front edge of the object. Depending on
application, the sensor is to be mounted in such a way that bar codes on objects of different sizes can
be completely scanned during the time window of the evaluation ("scan gate time").

6.4.3 Mounting Sensors for Object Distance Detection
When the focus position switching of the BCL is triggered through external sensors, the respective
sensors must be mounted near the BCL. Figure 6.10 shows an example of downward reading. The
sensors are to be mounted in such a way that all possible object heights can be classified unambiguously and overlapping read areas (DOF) can be generated by the BCL. For this, a maximum of five
switched inputs are available. A maximum of 32 switching status can be implemented for eight distance configurations (DOF) through the internal cross-reference list (combinations). Retro-reflective
photo electric sensors, for example, are applied to detect the object distance. In the base setting, all
five switched inputs "SE 2 … SE 6" are selected for focus position switching.

Look up the depths of field of the BCL for the given resolution of the bar code in the diagrams in
Figure 4.3 to Figure 4.8 (line scanner) or Figure 4.9 to Figure 4.10 (line scanner with oscillating
mirror) starting from Section 4.3, on page 32. Find and record the appropriate focus positions
for overlapping DOF.
Place the distance sensors (e.g. retro-reflective photo electric sensors) for object height detection accordingly in a vertical row at the mounting site (see also Table 7.18, on page 93). We
recommend mounting the distance sensors around 100 mm before the reading cycle sensor
against the transporting direction.
Connect the distance sensors via the connection unit MA 90 to the switched inputs
"SE 2 … SE 6" of the BCL (see Section 7.5.6, on page 90).
Adjust the focus positions for the needed DOF through the user interface of BCL-Config.
Select the standard decoder and call up the percentage evaluation temporarily.
Check the reading quality for the distance configurations in statical operation (object not in
transport motion)
Finally, check the function of distance detection in actual read operation of the application. For
this purpose, observe the read result in the terminal emulator as in Section 6.4.2, on page 76.
Base setting: focus position F 1 to F 8 = 1200 mm
Notice!
The BCL can switch between a maximum of eight distance ranges for low-speed search
functions by way of the integrated timer or oscillating mirror reversal points.
The BCL can switch between a maximum of eight distance ranges synchronous to the process through command strings.

In case an external power supply unit is used for power supply instead of the MA 90, the power supply
unit should be able to have the following voltage and power output:
• for BCL without heater: DC 18 … 30 V, at least 20 W continuous power
• for BCL with heater: DC 24 V +20% / 10%, at least 100 W continuous power
The external power supply unit has to correspond to standard number IEC 742 (functional extra-low
voltage).
The output circuit should have a reliable electrical isolation against the input circuit according to IEC
742 consisting of a double isolation and safety transformer.
Core cross-section
The core cross-section for the power supply line (pin 1/pin 5) should be at least 0.5 mm² , for BCLs
with heaters, at least 0.75 mm² at a maximum length of 10 m.

7.5.7 Connect Switched Outputs "SWO 1 … SWO 4"
The four switched outputs can be individually assigned different functions of the result status output.
When an event occurs during the read process, the switched output corresponding to this particular
event will become energised after the end of the reading cycle for the selected pulse duration. The
pulse duration can be adjusted separately for each output.
The "Result" LED is coupled with the output "SWO 2" and is switched on in the operating mode "read
operation" for the adjusted pulse duration and selected function of the result status display (base setting: "Good Read", 100 ms).
Figure 7.6 shows the circuitry of the switched outputs "SWO 1 … SWO 4". Table 7.20 contains the pin
assignment on the BCL. Table 7.21 describes the characteristics for the outputs. The characteristics
of the four outputs are the same.

Quick Start
When operating on factory default setting, the BCL need not be connected to a PC (except for the first
commissioning of the BCL with external parameter memory).

7.
Connect the BCL with two cables KB 090-3000 No. 500 35319 to the connector unit MA 90.
Connect the reading cycle sensor (e.g. retro-reflective photo electric sensor, switch) via MA 90
to the switched input "SE 1" of the BCL (see Section 7.5.6, on page 90).
Activate the supply voltage of the MA 90.
The BCL starts operating. The LED "Device Ready" lights up. The output "SWO 1" ("Device
Ready") is connected.
BCL with external parameter memory:
If an external parameter memory is connected to the BCL, the LED "Device Ready" blinks
about 10 s after a successful start and changes to constant light.
However, if the two LEDs "Device Ready" and "Read Result" blink together continuously, the
memory is empty and the BCL is not ready to operate.
Line scanner with oscillating mirror:
In the base setting, the BCL deflects the scan line to both sides of the position CW =50 with a
frequency of 1 Hz at an oscillation amplitude of ±20° (±40 CW).
Start the reading cycle: cover the light path of the light barrier or turn off switch.
The LED "Sensor" lights up. The BCL switches on the laser diode, the scan line appears.
Present the bar code sample from Figure 8.2 to the BCL at the read distance acc. to Table 8.5.
Align the bar code in such a way that the red scan line on the bar code is at a near right angle
to the code bars (line scanner) or the red scan line sweeps over the code bars at a right angle
during deflection (oscillating mirror).
Conclude the reading cycle: uncover the light path of the light barrier or turn on switch.
The LED "Sensor" goes off. The BCL turns off the laser diode.
When the reading is successful, the LED "Result" lights up for 100 ms. The output "SWO 2"
("Good Read") is activated for 100 ms.
The BCL is ready for operation on factory default setting.
The device can be switched off without deleting the configuration data since no changes have been
made to the parameter set.

Operation
Configuration (Parameterization)
The BCL is adapted to the reading conditions on site through configuration. Reading, evaluation and
output characteristics can be parameterized as needed. The starting point for this is the factory default
setting or a BCL parameter set which is already generated and defined according to application.
The BCL offers two configuration procedures:
• Configuration with the PC software BCL-Config
(Setting parameter values via the serial interface)
• Configuration with command strings
(Setting parameter values via the serial interface)
In the parameterization mode, the BCL does not output any read results.
8.5.1 Configure the BCL with User Interface of BCL-Config
When using the software BCL-Config, a PC has to be connected and the software installed in the PC.
The connection of the PC to the BCL is described in Section 7.5.5, on page 90.
Transfer the Parameter Set between BCL-Setup and the BCL
Changes made to the current parameter set in BCL-Config does not become effective until after being
transferred to the BCL. BCL-Config always loads a copy of the complete parameter set down to the
BCL, i.e. all parameter values up to now are overwritten in the BCL. The transfer and storage of the
parameter values into the BCL is called downloading.
Leuze electronic
Technical Description BCL 90
103
TNT 35/7-24V
BCL-Config operates in off-line mode during the parameterization of the BCL. In order to be able to
modify the current parameter set of the BCL, the parameter set has to be loaded from the BCL into
BCL-Config first. This process is called uploading. BCL-Config always uploads a copy of the current
parameter set from the BCL. The current parameter set remains unchanged until it is overwritten by
BCL-Config.

Oscillating-Mirror Functions
1. Operating mode "oscillating at predefined amplitude"
The oscillating mirror deflects the scan line up to a maximum deflection width of ±40 CW (equivalent
to ±20°). Figure 8.3 shows an overview of reading from the top.

2. Operating mode "oscillating at variable amplitude"
The deflection is randomly adjustable for each of the max. 8 distance configurations/focus positions
separately. Limiting the oscillation range ensures that the scan line sweeps only relevant areas in
which there are bar codes in the short time available in rapid applications. At the same time, this allows
the scan line density on the object to remain nearly constant. Figure 8.4 shows the application of a
reading from the top.

3. Operating mode "predefined position"
4. Operating mode "one-shot"
In one-shot, the oscillating mirror performs only one single specific oscillation for each scan gate time.
The movement consists of a forward and a return phase. For the oscillation, the starting position of
the scan line, the deflection speed and the valid distance configuration can be parameterized separately for each phase. The end position of one of the phases always forms the starting position of the
other phase. Figure 8.5 shows an example for the application in object tracking. The front side of the
object moving towards the oscillating mirror is scanned once from top to bottom by the scan line during
the forward phase at a speed corresponding to that of the transport. A multiple switching of the focus
position is omitted as the required DOF is much smaller than that of a line scanner. In Section 9.1.2,
on page 113, the calculation of the starting position and of the deflection speeds at given transport
speed is described.
The following can be triggers for the one-shot:
• switched input "SE 5" or "SE 6"
• a command string (via the serial interface)
• the start of the scan gate time by the BCL

Operation
8.7.1 Read Operation (Standard Operating Mode)
The BCL performs a self test after being switched on. The LED "Device Ready" lights up and signals
the start of the read operation. In the base setting, the switched input "SE 1" is the (external) trigger
of the reading cycle. The BCL outputs the read result via the host and service interfaces.
The read result of the service interface can be displayed in the terminal emulator of BCL-Config. Prerequisite for the display is that the service interface of the BCL is in the mode "read diagnosis". This
mode is selected as base setting. The read result of the service interface has a permanent, unalterable
format.
Line scanner with oscillating mirror:
In the base setting and in read operation, the BCL deflects the scan line to both sides of the position
CW =50 with a frequency of 1 Hz at a max. angle of ±20. 50 CW corresponds to a light exit angle smaller than 105°.

Notice!
The BCL outputs several bar codes in the read result only when the parameterized min. and
max. numbers of bar codes are > 1 and the BCL is presented with several bar codes.
8.7.2 Percentage Evaluation
In percentage evaluation, the quality of the bar code readings are assessed which are taken up in the
reading field of the BCL as statical codes (no transport movement).
In free-oscillating operation, the BCL performs 100 scans and assesses the reading rate. It outputs
the read results continuously every 2 s via the terminal interface. The read results can be displayed
in the terminal emulator of BCL-Config.
For percentage evaluation, it is necessary to switch temporarily to the standard decoder.
Line scanner with oscillating mirror:
In percentage evaluation, the BCL switches off the oscillation operation (base setting: oscillating at
predefined amplitude) and positions the scan line under the angle CW=50 (corresponds to a light exit
angle smaller than 105°). The angle cannot be changed.
The indication of the LED "Read Result" presents additional optical information on the reading rate
achieved:
•

The LED goes out when the reading rate < 30%
The LED blinks twice per second when the reading rate is 30% to 70%

The LED lights up constantly when the reading rate > 90%

8.7.3 Calibrating help
The operating mode calibrating help permits the optimum positioning of the middle of the scan line on
the bar code. In this mode, the BCL does not output any read results.
Line scanner with oscillating mirror:
In the calibrating help mode, the BCL switches off the oscillation operation (base setting: oscillating at
predefined amplitude) and positions the scan line under the angle CW=50 (corresponds to a light exit
angle smaller than 105°). The angle cannot be changed.
8.7.4 Background Teach-in
When the autofocus function is operated in the mode "difference to background" or "Difference to
background with tracking", the BCL first has to learn the background in its field of view before a successful read can be performed. When generating the internal distance profile, no reading object may
be within the field of view of the BCL. In this mode, the BCL does not output any read results.
TNT 35/7-24V
Line scanner with oscillating mirror:
In background teach-in, the BCL switches off the oscillation operation (base setting: oscillating at predefined amplitude) and positions the scan line under the angle CW=50 (corresponds to a light exit angle smaller than 105°). The angle cannot be changed.
Figure 8.8: BCL-Config: display of the learned background
8.7.5 Self Test
After being switched on, the device runs a self test before the initialisation with the parameter set. In
the self test, the BCL checks the proper functioning of its hardware components. Finally, a report on
the test result is sent through the terminal interface. During the test routine, the BCL does not output
any read results.
The code number "15000" means that the self test has been concluded successfully and no defect
has been diagnosed.

Standard decoder
The above distances are also required when the same bar codes (identical data contents and
identical code types) are to be read.
Condition for separating same bar codes:
1.
correct parameterization of "code distance" between the bar codes
2.
activate code position comparison
Bar code lines in the direction of transport:
When the scan line detects the same bar codes with the same code positions, an external incremental encoder or an internal INC timer is needed for the path length information to separate the
bar codes .
Rule of thumb: the bar code should be surrounded by quiet zones!

Overview of Commands and Parameters
Online commands can be used to send commands directly to the device for control and configuration.
For this, the BCL 90/MA 90 or BCL 90 has to be connected to a host or service computer via the serial
interface. The commands described can be sent either via the host or the service interface.
The on-line commands enable you to:
• control/decode.
• copy parameters.
• carry out a software reset in order to reinitialise the device.
Syntax
"Online" commands consist of one or two ASCII codes, followed by command parameters.
No separation characters may be entered between the command and the command parameter(s).
Both small and capitalised letters can be used.
Example:
Command ’PC’:
Copy parameters
Parameter ’20’:
Parameter default
The signal sent:
’PC20’
Spelling conventions
Most "online" commands are acknowledged by the BCL 90 or requested data are sent back. For commands that are not acknowledged, command execution can be observed or monitored directly on the
device.

Maintenance
10.1
Servicing during Operation
In order to maintain its full reading capability, the BCL needs a clean reading window.
We therefore recommend checking regularly whether the reading window is dirty, particularly in rough
operating environment (dust, abraded particles, humidity, finger prints).
Damage to the eyes through laser radiation!
The BCL operates with a red light laser of Class 2. Staring at the laser beam may
cause damage to the retina.
• Never look at the laser beam directly (same as sunlight).
• Turn off device during cleaning
• Avoid looking at the reading window at all times during device operation
Damage to the reading window!
The reading window is made of glass. The reading capacity is reduced through scratches
and streaks on the reading window.
• Use mild detergents without powder additives
• Avoid scratching and scrubbing motions on the reading window
Cleaning the reading window:
• Clean the reading window in regular intervals with a mild detergent without powder additives, e.g.
an antistatic window cleaning detergent. Figure 10.1 shows the areas to be cleaned.
Use a soft, lintfree cleaning cloth.

Maintenance
Clean other, optically relevant surfaces:
• Also clean the optical surfaces of sensors (e.g. retro-reflective photo electric sensors) for external
reading cycle generation and/or object height detection (Figure 10.2). Fouling may cause erroneous switching.
Figure 10.2:Cleaning the external optical sensors (reading cycle clock generator, object height detection)
Maintenance
The BCL runs without maintenance. Its self-monitoring functions provide for a long operation free of
failures.
The BCL outputs device and functional disorders in the form of messages via the service interfaces.
These can be displayed on the PC screen in the extended mode of the terminal emulator of the user
interface of BCL-Config.
