RF Exposure Information (SAR)
This mobile phone meets the government's requirements for exposure to radio waves. This phone is
designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF)
energy set by the Federal Communications Commission of the U.S. Government.
The exposure standard for wireless mobile phones employs a unit of measurement known as the
Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6W/kg. *Tests for SAR are
conducted using standard operating positions accepted by the FCC with the phone transmitting at its
highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined at the
highest certified power level, the actual SAR level of the phone while operating can be well below the
maximum value. This is because the phone is designed to operate at multiple power levels so as to use
only the poser required to reach the network. In general, the closer you are to a wireless base station
antenna, the lower the power output.
The highest SAR value for the model phone as reported to the FCC when tested for use at the ear is
____W/kg and when worn on the body, as described in this user guide, is _____ W/kg (Body-worn
measurements differ among phone models, depending upon available accessories and FCC
requirements.)
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various phones and at various positions, they
all meet the government requirement.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model phone with all reported SAR levels
evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines. SAR information on this model phone
is on file with the FCC and can be found under the Display Grant section of www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid
after searching on FCC ID: ________________.
For body worn operation, this phone has been tested and meets the FCC RF exposure guidelines for
use with an accessory that contains no metal and the positions the handset a minimum of 1.5 cm from
the body. Use of other accessories may not ensure compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines. If you
do no t use a body-worn accessory and are not holding the phone at the ear, position the handset a
minimum of 1.5 cm from your body when the phone is switched on.

Pacemakers, Hearing Aids and Other Electrically Powered Devices
Most manufacturers of medical devices adhere to the IEC 601-1-2 standard. This standard requires
devices to operate properly in an EM Field with a strength of 3V/m over a frequency range of 26 to
1000MHz. The maximum allowable field strength emitted by the Dolphin terminal is 0.3V/m according to
Subpart B of Part 1 of the FCC rules. Therefore, the RF from the Dolphin terminal has no effect on
medical devices that meet the IEC specification.
Microwaves
The radio in the Dolphin RF terminal operates on the same frequency band as a microwave oven.
Therefore, if you use a microwave within range of the Dolphin RF terminal you may notice performance
degradation in your wireless network. However, both your microwave and your wireless network will
continue to function.

Honeywell defines proper use of the terminal touch panel as using a screen protector and proper stylus.
Screen protectors maintain the ongoing integrity (i.e., prevent scratching) of the touch panel, which is
why their use is recommended for applications that require a high to medium level of interface with the
touch panel, such as signature capture for proof of delivery.
Honeywell advocates the use of screen protectors on all Dolphin devices. We recommend implementing
a screen protector replacement program to ensure that screen protectors are replaced periodically when
signs of damage/wear are noticeable. For general use, we recommend replacing the screen protector
every thirty (30) days. However, replacement cycles vary according to the average level of touch panel
use in your application.
Replacement screen protectors can be purchased directly from Honeywell. Please contact a Honeywell
sales associate for details.
Honeywell also mandates use of a proper stylus, which is one that has a stylus tip radius of no less than
0.8 mm. Use of the Honeywell stylus included with the terminal is recommended at all times.
Honeywell warranty policy covers wear on the touch panel for the first twelve (12) months if a screen protector is applied and an approved stylus is used for the 12 month duration covered by the warranty.
Installing a Screen Protector
Dolphin terminals ship with a screen protector already installed. You will need to replace the screen protector at regular intervals.
1.
After the current screen protector has been removed from the touch panel, clean the touch panel
thoroughly with a clean, non-abrasive, lint-free cloth. Make sure there is no debris on the touch
panel.
2.
Align the exposed section of the protector with the bottom edge of the touch panel. Make sure that
the screen protector is flush with each side of the touch panel. To reposition, lift up gently and
reapply.
3.
Press the screen protector firmly and carefully across the surface of the touch panel as you peel
away the backing.
4.
If necessary, smooth out any air pockets or bumps.
Healthcare Housing
Some configurations of the 99EX terminal are available with an external plastic housing that is designed
to resist the effects of harsh chemicals in a healthcare environment. The plastic is crystalline in nature,
which helps prevent chemicals from seeping through the housing.
Important! The following cleaning solutions have been tested to assure safe cleaning of your terminal’s
disinfectant-ready housing. They are the only solutions approved for use with these
terminals. Damage caused by the use of cleaners other than those listed below may not be
covered by the warranty.

Batteries
There are three types of battery power: the main battery pack installed in the back panel, the backup
battery located inside the terminal and the Real Time Clock (RTC) battery located inside the terminal.
They are designed to work together to prevent data loss when the terminal is in use over long periods.
All batteries must be completely charged before using a Dolphin terminal for the first time!
Note: The RTC battery will preserve the Real Time Clock 60 days after the main battery and internal backup battery
are fully depleted.
Main Battery Pack
!
We recommend use of Honeywell Li-ion or Li-poly battery packs. Use of any non-Honeywell battery may result
in damage not covered by the warranty.
The standard 3.7 V, 11.3 watt hour Li-poly or extended 3.7 V, 18.5 watt hour Li-ion battery pack is the primary power source for the terminal. The Li-poly and Li-ion battery packs are designed to operate in a
temperature range of -10° to 50°C (14° to 122°F).
Note: Honeywell recommends placing the terminal in Software/Operating System Upgrades (see page 3-17) before
removing the battery cover.
Charging Options
When the main battery pack is installed in the terminal, use one of the following peripherals:
• Dolphin 99EX HomeBase Device (see page 12-1)
• Dolphin 99EX eBase Device (see page 13-1)
• Dolphin 99EX Mobile Base Device (see page 14-1)
• Dolphin 99EX ChargeBase Device (see page 15-1)
• Dolphin 99EX Net Base Device (see page 16-1)
When the main battery pack is not installed in the terminal:
• Place the battery pack in the Dolphin 99EX QuadCharger Device (see page 17-1)
• Place the battery pack in the Auxiliary Battery Well of the Dolphin 99EX HomeBase Device (see page
12-2) or Dolphin 99EX eBase Device (see page 13-1).
Charging Time
The standard 3.7V Li-poly battery pack requires 4.5 hours to charge completely before initial use.
The extended 3.7V Li-ion battery pack requires 6 hours to charge completely before initial use.
Honeywell recommends charging the Dolphin terminal for at least 24 hours prior to initial use to ensure
the internal backup battery is fully charged.
3 - 13
Preliminary Draft 1/19/11
Battery Error Notification
If your terminal displays the following indicators, replace the main battery pack with a Honeywell Li-poly
or Li-ion battery pack.
•
appears in the Title bar at the top of the touch screen.
• The General Notification LED flashes red.
• A Notification appears on the Tile bar at the bottom of the touch screen.
Storing Batteries
To maintain top performance from batteries, avoid storing batteries outside of the following temperature
ranges:
• 14°F to 113°F (-10°C to +45°C) for short term storage of less than one month
• 32°F to 86°F (-0°C to +30°C) for long term storage
Do not store batteries in extremely high humidity. For prolonged storage, do not keep batteries stored in
a charger that is connected to a power source.
Guidelines for Battery Pack Use and Disposal
The following are general guidelines for the safe use and disposal of batteries:
• We recommend use of Honeywell Li-ion or Li-poly battery packs. Use of any non-Honeywell battery
may pose a personal hazard to the user.
• Replace defective batteries immediately; using a defective battery could damage the Dolphin terminal.
• Never throw a used battery in the trash. A battery contains heavy metals and should be recycled
according to local guidelines.
• Do not use a battery in any other manner outside its intended use in Dolphin terminals and peripherals.
• Do not short-circuit a battery or throw it into a fire; it can explode and cause severe personal injury.
• Excessive discharge damages a battery. Recharge the battery when your terminal indicates low battery
power.
• If you observe that the Honeywell battery supplied is physically damaged, please send it to Honeywell
International Inc. or an authorized service center for inspection. Refer to the Product Service and
Repair section of this guide.
• Although your battery can be recharged many times, the battery life is limited. Replace it after the
battery is unable to hold an adequate charge.
• If you are not sure the battery or charger is working properly, send it to Honeywell International or an
authorized service center for inspection.
Internal Backup Battery
Located inside the terminal, the backup battery is a 3.6 Volt nickel metal hydride (NiMH) battery.
The internal backup battery prevents the terminal from being reset if you need to remove and replace the
main battery pack. It retains RAM data. If the terminal is left without the main battery pack for more than
30 minutes, the internal backup battery needs to be recharged to function according to its specifications.
Note: Data and programs stored in Flash memory are not lost even if the internal backup battery fails.
3 - 14
Preliminary Draft 1/19/11
Charging
The internal backup batteries are powered by the main battery pack. Therefore, charging the internal
backup batteries require that the main battery pack be installed in the terminal and the terminal be connected to a charging device.
Note: Honeywell recommends placing the terminal in Software/Operating System Upgrades (see page 3-17) before
removing the battery cover.
The internal backup battery must be fully charged before using the terminal for the first time. Honeywell
recommends charging the Dolphin terminal for at least 24 hours prior to initial use to ensure the internal
backup battery is fully charged. After that, if the internal backup battery becomes fully discharged of
power, it requires a minimum of 30 hours of charging time to function normally.
Guidelines for Use
Follow these guidelines to maximize the life of the internal backup battery:
• Keep a charged Li-ion or Li-poly battery pack in the terminal; the backup battery prematurely
discharges if there is not at least a partially charged battery in the terminal.
• Keep the terminal connected to power when the terminal is not in use.
Managing Battery Power
Letting the backup battery become fully discharged causes the terminal to lose all data in RAM. Honeywell recommends, you keep a charged battery pack in the terminal at all times to help prevent data loss.
The internal battery discharges prematurely if there is not at least a partially charged battery in the terminal. When you remove a battery pack, insert another charged battery pack in the terminal immediately.
Default Critical and Low Battery Points
When the terminal is running on battery power (as opposed to external power), warnings are displayed
when the battery reaches critical and low battery points. The warning points are determined by the following registry entry:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ControlPanel\Power]
There are two DWORD values in this registry entry: MedState and LowState.
The default values for these entries are as follows:
MedState=25%
This sets the Low Battery point to 25%. When the battery hits the percentage charge specified
here, the user is notified.
LowState=10%
This sets the Critical Battery point to 10%. When the battery hits the percentage charge
specified here, the user is notified.
Note: Warnings do not appear when the terminal is on external power.
3 - 15
Preliminary Draft 1/19/11

Decoding
The terminal supports two types of image decoding for use in various bar code reading and imaging
applications: full-area imaging and Advanced Linear Decoding (ALD).
Full-Area Imaging
Full-area imaging provides omni-directional reading of linear and non-linear 1D and 2D bar codes, OCR,
signature capture, and picture taking. When reading all bar code types using full-area imaging, a positive
read can be obtained from many positions; see Aiming Options on page 4-4. To achieve the best read,
the aiming beam should be centered horizontally across the bar code.
ALD
ALD provides fast reading of linear and stacked linear bar codes. To achieve a positive read when reading linear 1D and PDF417 bar codes, the green aiming beam should be centered horizontally across the
bar code. When ALD is enabled, the reader does not read matrix or postal codes.
To Decode a Bar Code
The aiming beam should be oriented in line with the bar code to achieve optimal decoding. A range
of 4-10 inches (10-25 cm) from the bar code is recommended.
1. Tap
> Demos
> Scan Demo
.
2.
Point the Dolphin terminal at the bar code.
3.
Project the aiming beam or pattern by pressing and holding the SCAN key
4.

7.
The bar code information is entered into the application in use.
SCAN
.
Aiming Options
The aiming beams are smaller when the terminal is held closer to the code and larger when it is farther
from the code. Symbologies with smaller bars or elements (mil size) should be read closer to the unit
whereas symbologies with larger bars or elements (mil size) should be read farther from the unit.

Capturing Images
The image-capture process is an intuitive, split-second operation for experienced users. By following the
basic guidelines, new users can easily develop their own technique and, with practice, quickly learn to
adapt it to different application environments.
Image Preview
When the imaging process is initiated, the touch screen displays a preview of the object. This is a live
video image of what the imager is currently viewing. The live video image has a slightly degraded
appearance compared to the captured image. This is normal.
Scan Key
On all 99EX terminals, the SCAN key captures images.
File Formats
File formats supported for image storage include Bitmap (BMP), JPEG (JPG) and Portable Network
Graphics (PNG). The default file format for images is a grayscale JPG.
Compression
Digital images have a maximum image size of 640 x 480 pixels and may have up to a 256 grayscale
image definition.
The image quality and related file size are determined by the data compression method used by the software application used to take images. The average size of the image file is approximately 4–8K. However, the size of the image depends on the content of the image - the more complex the content, the
larger the file size.
Taking an Image
The following steps are basic guidelines for taking images:
1.
Tap
2.
Point the Dolphin terminal at the object.
3.
To preview the image, press and hold the SCAN key
4.
The touch screen displays a preview of the object, and the decode and scan LEDs light red.
5.
Adjust the terminal’s position until the object appears on the screen the way you want it to appear in
the image.
6.
Hold the terminal still and release the SCAN key. The scan and decode LEDs flash red, the screen
flashes, and the captured image appears on the screen.
