Scanner Features
The scanners use a low power visible (red) laser diode for scanning. The
trigger turns on the laser which scans a label at approximately 36 scans
per second.
LEDs
Trigger
Cable Connector
The laser beam:
-exits through the scan window
-reflects off the label back through the window
-is detected by a sensor in the scanner
When a label is read, the laser beam is automatically turned off until the
trigger is pressed again. If no label is read, the laser beam automatically
turns off after 0.5 to 3 seconds (timeout is adjustable) and remains off
until the trigger is released and pressed again.
Note: When used with the adjustable stands (Catalog No.
2755-HFN-K1, -K2), the scanner operates automatically for hands-free
operation. Refer to Appendix B.

Configuring the Scanner
This chapter describes the scanner configuration options.
Important Notes on Configuring a Scanner
Be aware of the following when configuring the scanner:
• Both the scanner and Synapse cable configuration bar codes are
located in the Bar Code Programming Guide for Hand-Held Scanners
(Publication 2755-6.5).
• Configure the scanner for use with a Synapse cable or AdaptaScan
Pass Through cable. Separate scanner configuration codes are used
for each cable type. Make sure you use the correct configuration
codes. The programming guide has separate tabbed sections for
Scanner Configuration (for Synapse Cable) and Scanner
Configuration (for AdaptaScan Pass Through Cable)
• Chapter 4 describes the communication setup (cable configuration)
codes for the RS-232, keyboard wedge cable, scanner emulation, and
AdaptaScan Pass Through cables.
Scanner Configuration Bar Codes
All programming codes may be found in the Bar Code Programming
Guide for Hand-Held Scanners (Publication 2755-6.5). The scanner is
always enabled to read Code 128 configuration labels since all
configuration codes use this symbology.

Configuring the Scanner
Select Cable Type
Important: Select the cable type before configuring the scanner. The
scanner configuration codes (and some options) for each cable type
(Synapse and AdaptaScan Pass Through) are different. Each
configuration is stored separately. The selections are:
• Enable Synapse Cable
• Enable AdaptaScan Pass Through Cable (default)
After configuring the scanner, you can switch between configurations by
scanning the cable selection bar code.
Select Symbologies
Scan the bar code labels for the symbologies you want the scanner to
decode. Only enable the symbologies you expect to read. The scanner
automatically discriminates between all of the following symbologies.
The only exception is that the scanner cannot discriminate between Code
39 and Code 39 Full ASCII. The scanner can read and decode the
following symbologies. All symbologies are enabled by default.

UPC / EAN Decode Security Levels
There are four levels of decode security. There is an inverse relationship
between security and the ability to decode codes of varying quality.
Increasing the security level, “tightens” the scanner’s requirements for a
valid read. Select one of the levels below.
The default security level is 0. This level is sufficient for most
applications. Higher security levels:
• may result in more no-reads on poor quality labels
• reduce the chance of mis-reads on poor quality labels
Security Level
Decode Operation
0
At the level 0, the scanner decodes many poor or low quality codes while
providing adequate security for UPC/EAN codes within specifications.
1
As the quality level of UPC / EAN bar codes decrease, certain digits are
more susceptible to misreads ( 1, 2, 7, 8) If you have problems only
decoding symbols with these digits, select this security level.
2
If you are having problems decoding poor quality bar codes and the
problem isn’t limited to the digits ( 1, 2, 7, 8), select this level.
3
If you selected security level 2 and are still having problems decoding
symbols, select this security level.
Note: Only select this level if you are scanning high quality bar codes. The
scanner will reject codes that are not within the specifications for the
symbology.

Code 39 Options
The following options are available for Code 39 symbols.
Code 39 Check Digit
When enabled, the scanner verifies the Code 39 check digit (modulo 43
check character).
Code 39 Buffering (Scan and Store)
When enabled, the scanner stores all Code 39 symbol data that has a
leading space as the first character (following start pattern). As Code 39
labels are scanned for buffering, the scanner provides a high/low beep to
indicate that the data is stored in the buffer.
Up to 250 bytes of information may be stored. If you scan a symbol and
the buffer is full, the scanner will provide three long high tone beeps. No
transmission will occur and the data in the buffer is not affected.
Note: Before you can disable Code 39 buffering, you must clear the
buffer (see below).
Clear Transmission Buffer
Clears the Code 39 transmission buffer. You will hear a high/low/high
beep after the buffer has been cleared. No data is transmitted.

Code 39 Options (Continued)
Send Transmission Buffer
Sends the contents of the Code 39 transmission buffer. You will hear a
low/high beep after the buffer has been sent. You can also send the
contents of the Code 39 buffer by scanning any Code 39 label with any
leading character other than a space. If you attempt to transmit an empty
buffer, the scanner will provide a short low/high/low beep.
Code 39 Full ASCII
The full ASCII option allows the scanner to output any ASCII character
or control code (including non-printable characters). When enabled, the
scanner interprets some characters ($, +, %, /) as special control codes.
Refer to Appendix E for a list of the Code 39 Full ASCII codes.
For example, scanning a symbol $H results in the ASCII code for a
Backspace being transmitted.
Note: The scanner cannot autodiscriminate between Code 39 and Code
39 Full ASCII symbols.

symbols:
I 2 of 5 (14 digit) to EAN 13 Conversion
When enabled, 14 character Interleaved 2 of 5 data is converted and
transmitted in an EAN 13 format.
Note: Interleaved 2 of 5 must be enabled and one code length (Length 1
or Length 2) must be set to 14. In addition, the code must have a leading
0 and a valid EAN 13 check digit.
Code Lengths
Specifies the expected length of the bar code symbol. When a specific
length is enabled, symbols that are not the specified length are ignored.
Only one or two lengths may be specified, all other lengths are ignored.
First scan the length symbol followed by the 2 digit length. Length 1
may range from 01 to 31. Length 2 may be in the range of 00 to 31.
Determine the number of characters in a symbol by counting the number
of printed digits (human readable characters).
Note: The scanner cannot be configured to read Interleaved or Discrete
2-of-5 labels of “any length”. You must specify code length(s).

Data Format Options
The following options define the what happens to the data after a symbol
has been decoded:
Data Prefix / Suffix
To add prefix or suffix data to bar code data, scan the prefix or suffix bar
code followed by the 4 digit ASCII equivalent value for each character
(refer to Appendix D for the ASCII chart). Only one character may be
specified as a suffix or prefix. When you enter the last digit of a prefix
or suffix, the scanner lets you know that you have entered a valid value
by providing a high-low-high beep.
Data Transmission Formats
You can set whether or not prefix or suffix data is added to the decoded
symbol data. You have four options:
•
•
•
•
<DATA> only bar code data is sent
<PREFIX> <DATA> prefix data is sent then the bar code data
<DATA> <SUFFIX> bar code data is sent then the suffix data
<PREFIX><DATA><SUFFIX> prefix data is sent then bar code
data followed by the suffix data

• low power mode for AdaptaScan Pass Through cable
• continuous power mode for Synapse cables
Note: When the scanner is in low power mode and a label is scanned,
the first character of the first symbol will not be read as the scanner
powers up. Use continuous mode if this causes a problem with your
application (such as stand mode or A-B Basic Module applications).

Hardware Handshaking
When enabled, handshaking verifies the readiness of a receiving device
before data is transmitted. You can enable or disable the hardware
handshaking lines. The DTR (Data Terminal Ready) signal is either
active high or low (see below).
This is how the scanner handshaking functions:
1. The scanner checks the Clear to Send (CTS) line. If CTS is active,
the scanner will wait for up to 2 seconds and check the line again. If
the line is still active, the scanner will provide an audible beep and
any scanned data will be lost.
2. If the CTS line is not active, the scanner will assert the Request to
Send (RTS) line and wait for two seconds for the host to assert the
CTS line. When the host asserts the CTS line, the scanner transmits
the data.
3. After the transmission is completed, the scanner will negate the RTS.
4. The host device should then negate CTS. The scanner checks the
CTS line on the next transmission.
RTS State
Selects the active state for the Request to Send (RTS) signal.
Make sure that this setting matches the requirements of the host device.
The selections are:
• RTS State Low (default)
• RTS State High

Software Handshaking
Software handshaking controls the transmission of data. Use software
handshaking instead of (but not with) hardware handshaking. There are
four options:
•
•
•
•
•
None (default)
ACK/NAK Only
ENQ Only
ACK/NAK with ENQ
XON/XOFF
ACK/NAK Only checks the result of a transmission. The scanner waits
for one of two responses from the host: ACK which means a successful
transmission or NAK which means there was a problem. Whenever the
scanner receives a NAK, it retransmits the data up to three times. If an
ACK is still not received after three attempts, the transmission is aborted
and the scanner will provide four short beeps.
ENQ ONLY requires that the scanner receive an enquire character
(ENQ) from the host before sending data. With ENQ enabled, the
scanner must receive an ENQ from the host within a two second period
after the last scan or a transmission error occurs. The scanner will
provide four short beeps to indicate the error.
ACK/NAK with ENQ combines both ACK/NAK and ENQ options.
With XON/ XOFF enabled, the interface cable assumes an XON for the
first transmission. The scanner will transmit data until an XOFF is
received from the host device. If an XON is not received within 30
seconds after an XOFF, a transmission error occurs.
Publication 2755-6.2
Communication Setup (Cable Configuration)
4-7
Beep on BEL
When enabled, the scanner will beep when a <BEL> character is
detected on the RS-232 link. <BEL> may be used to indicate an event
such as an illegal entry.
Unknown Characters
Unknown characters are characters not recognized by the scanner. When
SEND BAR CODES WITH UNKNOWN CHARACTERS is enabled,
all decoded bar code data is transmitted except for the unknown
characters. If this option is disabled, bar codes containing one or more
unknown characters are not transmitted.
Response Timeout
The response timeout determines the maximum amount of time the
scanner will wait before it assumes the end of a transmission. The
timeout period may be from 0.0 to 9.9 seconds in 0.1 second increments.
The default is 2.0 seconds.
To enter a new timeout, scan the timeout label followed by the two digit
timeout. The decimal point is fixed between the first and second digits.

Beep on BEL
When enabled, the scanner beeps when a <BEL> character is detected on
the RS-232 link. <BEL> may be used to indicate an event such as an
illegal entry.
Note: The scanner will not respond to a <BEL> character between
decode attempts if the scanner is configured for low power operation.

Troubleshooting and Maintenance
Cleaning the Scan Window
You may need to clean the window of the scanner. Carefully clean the
window by first removing loose particles of dirt with clean air. Then use
an optical quality cloth moistened with an optical quality cleaning fluid
for plastic lenses and wipe the window in a single direction (don’t wipe
cloth back and forth across window). Do not leave streaks.
!
!
ATTENTION: Do not use abrasive materials such as
disposable wipes and facial tissue. Do not use solvents like
alcohol or acetone. These materials will damage the
window or the finish on the scanner.
ATTENTION: The scanner has no serviceable parts. Do
not open the housing of the scanner.

Appendix B
Hands-Free Stand Operation
The scanner operates automatically when used with an adjustable stand:
• 2755-HFN-K1
• 2755-HFN-K2
To use the stand for hands-free operation:
1. Adjust the stand at a distance and angle suitable for the labels you are
scanning.
2. Place the scanner in the stand, the scanner will turn on and begin
scanning. You do not need to press the trigger.
3. The scanner will remain scanning until a readable bar code symbol is
placed under the scan line. After reading the label the scanner will
stop scanning, attempt to transmit the data, and then resume scanning.
4. If the scanner does not scan a bar code symbol within the configured
Stand Operation Timeout, the scanner will enter a reduced power
mode (blinking scan). Normal scanning resumes once a bar code
symbol is read.

Glossary
A
ASCII
American Standard Code for Information Interchange.
A 7 bit-plus-parity code representing 128 letters, numerals,
punctuation marks, and control characters. It is a standard data
transmission code in the U.S.
B
Bit
Binary digit. One bit is the basic unit of binary information. Generally,
eight consecutive bits compose one byte of data. The pattern of 0 and 1
values within the byte determines its meaning.
Byte
On an addressable boundary, eight adjacent binary digits (0 and 1)
combined in a pattern to represent a specific character or numeric value.
Bits are numbered from the right, 0 through 7, with bit 0 the low-order
bit. One byte in memory can be used to store one ASCII character.
C
CDRH
Center for Devices and Radiological Health. A federal agency
responsible for regulating laser product safety. This agency specifies
various laser operation classes based on power output during operation.
Check Digit
A digit used to verify a correct symbol decode. The scanner inserts the
decoded data into an arithmetic formula and checks that the resulting
number matches the encoded check digit. Check digits are required for
UPC but are optional for other symbologies. Using check digits
decreases the chance of substitution errors when a symbol is
decoded.
Publication 2755-6.2
G–2
Codabar
A discrete self-checking code with a character set consisting of digits 0
to 9 and six additional characters: (- $ : / , +).
Code 128
A high density symbology which allows the controller to encode all 128
ASCII characters without adding extra symbol elements.
Code 3 of 9 (Code 39)
A versatile and widely used alphanumeric bar
code symbology with a set of 43 character types, including all uppercase
letters, numerals from 0 to 9, and 7 special characters (- . / + % $ and
space). The code name is derived from the fact that 3 of 9 elements
representing a character are wide, while the remaining 6 are narrow.
Code 93
An industrial symbology compatible with Code 39 but offering a full
character ASCII set and a higher coding density than Code 39.
Continuous Code
A bar code or symbol in which all spaces within the symbol are parts of
characters. There are no intercharacter gaps in a continuous code. The
absence of gaps allows for greater information density.
Publication 2755-6.2
G–3
D
Decode
To recognize a bar code symbology (e.g., UPC/EAN) and then analyze
the content of the specific bar code scanned.
Decode Algorithm
A decoding scheme that converts pulse widths into data representation of
the letters or numbers encoded within a bar code symbol.
Discrete Code
A bar code or symbol in which the spaces between characters
(intercharacter gaps) are not part of the code.
Discrete 2 of 5
A binary bar code symbology representing each character by a group of
five bars, two of which are wide. The location of wide bars in the group
determines which character is encoded; spaces are insignificant. Only
numeric characters (0 to 9) and START/STOP characters may be
encoded.
E
EAN
European Article Number. This European/International version of the
UPC provides its own coding format and symbology standards. Element
dimensions are specified metrically. EAN is used primarily in retail.
H
Host Computer
A computer that serves other terminals in a network, providing such
services as computation, database access, supervisory programs, and
network control.
Publication 2755-6.2
G–4
I
IEC
International Electrotechnical Commission. This international
agency regulates laser safety by specifying various laser operation
classes based on power output during operation.
Intercharacter Gap
The space between two adjacent bar code characters in a discrete code.
Interleaved Bar Code
A bar code in which characters are paired together, using bars to
represents the first character and the intervening spaces to represent the
second.
Interleaved 2 of 5
A binary bar code symbology representing character pairs in groups of
five bars and five interleaved spaces. Interleaving provides for
greater information density. The location of wide elements
(bar/spaces) within each group determines which characters are
encoded. This continuous code type uses no intercharacter spaces.
Only numeric (0 to 9) and START / STOP characters may be
encoded.
Publication 2755-6.2
G–5
L
Laser
An acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of
Radiation. The laser is an intense light source. Light from a laser is all
the same frequency, unlike the output of an incandescent bulb. Laser
light is typically coherent and has a high energy density.
Laser Diode
A gallium-arsenide semiconductor type of laser connected to a power
source to generate a laser beam. This laser type is a compact source of
coherent light.
P
Parameter
A variable that can have different values assigned to it.
Programming Mode
The state in which a scanner is configured for parameter values. See
SCANNING MODE.
Q
Quiet Zone
A clear space, containing no dark marks, which precedes the start
character of a bar code symbol and follows the stop character.
Publication 2755-6.2
G–6
S
Scanner
An electronic device used to scan bar code symbols and produce a
digitized pattern that corresponds to the bars and spaces of the symbol.
Its three main components are:
1. Light source (laser or photoelectric cell) - illuminates a bar code.
2. Photodetector - registers the difference in reflected light (more
light reflected from spaces).
3. Signal conditioning circuit - transforms optical detector output
into a digitized bar pattern.
Scanning Mode
The scanner is energized, programmed, and ready to read a bar code.
Scanning Sequence
A method of programming or configuring parameters for a bar code
reading system by scanning bar code menus.
Self Checking Code
A symbology that uses a checking algorithm to detect encoding errors
within the characters of a bar code symbol.
Start / Stop Character
A pattern of bars and spaces that provides the scanner with start and stop
reading instructions and scanning direction. The start and stop characters
are normally to the left and right margins of a horizontal code.
Symbol
A scannable unit that encodes data within the conventions of a certain
symbology, usually including start/stop characters, quiet zones, data
characters, and check characters.
Symbology
The structural rules and conventions for representing data within a
particular bar code type (e.g. UPC/EAN, Code 39).
Publication 2755-6.2
G–7
U
UPC
Universal Product Code. A relatively complex numeric symbology. Each
character consists of two bars and two spaces, each of which can be
any of four widths. The standard symbology for retail food packages in
the United States.
