Dolphin 6500s ship with a screen protector already installed over the touch screen lens
to help prevent damage to the touch screen. Do NOT remove this screen protector before
initial use. Honeywell recommends using screen protectors, especially for applications
that require high volume interfacing with the touch screen. For more information, see
Using Screen Protectors on page 3-3. You can purchase additional screen protectors by
contacting your Honeywell sales representative.
For touch screen input, use the stylus included with the terminal or your finger. The method
you choose depends on which one is most appropriate for your application. While there is a
great deal of variation in different applications, you generally achieve greater accuracy with the
stylus for buttons or icons that are close together.
!
Use of objects, such as paper clips, pencils, or ink pens on the touch screen can damage
the input panel and may cause damage not covered by the warranty.
Using Screen Protectors
Honeywell defines proper use of the terminal touch panel display 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.
Honeywell continues to advocate the use of screen protectors on all Dolphin terminals. 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. Contact a Honeywell sales
representative for details.
Honeywell also mandates use of a proper stylus, which is one that has a stylus tip radius of no less than
0.8mm. Use of the Honeywell stylus included with the terminal is recommended at all times.
Honeywell’s warranty policy covers wear on the touch panel for the first 12 months provided that a screen
protector is applied and an approved stylus is used for the 12-month duration covered by the warranty.
3-3
Removing the Screen Protector
Dolphin 6500s ship with a touch screen protector already installed. To replace the screen protector, you
must remove the one already installed.
1. Press the red Power button to suspend the 28-key unit or press the Blue then Z (Power) keys to
suspend the 52-key unit.
2.
Using a strong, flat, plastic card (e.g., credit card) wedge the edge of the card under the existing
screen protector. Catch the edge of the screen protector and pull it up and away from the touch
panel.

>
Settings > System > Power > USB Charging.
To fully charge the Li-Ion battery before installing it in the terminal, use the
• Dolphin QuadCharger Device (see page 11-1) or insert the battery in the spare battery charging well
in the back of either the Dolphin HomeBase or Dolphin eBase.
Charging Time
The 3300mAh battery pack charges to full capacity in an average of 5 1/2 hours for a fully depleted
battery. It takes less time if the battery has some charge.
Managing Main Battery Power
Data and files saved on the Dolphin terminal may be stored in RAM memory; therefore, maintain a
continuous power supply to the terminal to help prevent data loss. When you remove a battery pack, insert
another charged battery pack in the Dolphin. If the main battery pack is low, insert the terminal into a
charging peripheral to power the terminal and begin recharging the battery.
Note: If the main battery is low and the terminal is in Suspend Mode, pressing the Power button does not wake
the Dolphin 6500 terminal; you must first replace the discharged battery with a fully charged battery or apply
A/C power to the terminal.
Checking Battery Power
Power icons appear in the title bar at the top of the window. Tap on the battery icon to open the Power
Properties or select
> Settings > System > Power. The Battery screen opens displaying the charge
status of both the main and backup batteries.
Storage Guidelines
To maintain optimal battery performance, follow these storage guidelines:
3 - 14
• Avoid storing batteries outside the specified range of -4 to 140° F (-20 to 40°C) or in extremely high
humidity.
• For prolonged storage, it is recommended that the battery be at a 40% - 50% charge level, be removed
from the device, and stored in a controlled temperature environment. Following these
recommendations will maximize battery life.
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 battery packs. Use of any non-Honeywell battery may pose a
personal hazard to the user.
• Ensure all components are dry prior to mating batteries with peripheral devices. Mating wet
components may cause damage not covered by the warranty.
• Replace defective batteries immediately; using a defective battery could damage the Dolphin terminal.
• Never throw a used battery in the trash. It contains heavy metals and should be recycled according to
local guidelines.
• Don’t use a battery in any other manner outside its intended use in Dolphin terminals and peripherals.
• Don’t 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 in some way, send it to
Honeywell International Inc. or an authorized service center for inspection. Refer to the Technical
Assistance (page 13-1) section of this guide.
• Although your battery can be recharged many times, it will eventually be depleted. 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 3.7V Lithium Polymer battery.
The internal backup battery prevents the terminal from being reset when you remove the main battery
pack. This backup battery retains RAM data and allows the real-time clock to remain operational for at
least 30 minutes (if fully charged beforehand). If the terminal is left without the main battery pack for more
than 30 minutes, the internal backup battery discharges and needs to be recharged to function according
to specifications.
Note: Even if the internal backup battery fails, data and programs stored in Flash memory (\\Honeywell\AutoInstall)
or on an optional SD card are not lost. However, the terminal automatically cold boots when you install a fully
charged battery pack and you will need to reset the real-time clock.
Charging
The internal backup battery charges off the main battery pack and requires 2 hours charge time to backup
RAM data for 30 minutes. You can begin using the Dolphin terminal after charging the main battery for an
average of 5 1/2 hours for a fully depleted battery; however, the internal backup battery will continue to
charge off the main battery. It takes less time to charge the main battery if the battery has some charge.
To ensure that the internal backup battery functions properly, maintain a consistent power supply for the
first eight hours of terminal operation. This power supply can be external power (using a charging
peripheral) or an installed, charged battery pack or a combination of both.
3 - 15
Charging Guidelines
Follow these guidelines to maximize the life of the Dolphin 6500’s internal backup battery under normal
usage conditions:
• Keep a charged Li-Ion battery pack in the Dolphin terminal.
• Keep the Dolphin terminal connected to a power source when the terminal is not in use.

The screen turns white and the decode/scan LED flashes blue for approximately 18 seconds.
Soft Reset (Warm Boot)
A soft reset re-boots the terminal without losing RAM data, terminates all running applications, reloads
the OS, and launches Autoinstall, which installs any CAB or REG files in the \\Honeywell\AutoInstall
folder.
You would perform a soft reset 1) when the terminal fails to respond, 2) after installing software
applications that require a reboot, 3) after making changes to certain system settings, or 4) to install new
CAB or REG files.
The desktop appears when the Soft Reset is complete.
Hard Reset (Cold Boot)
!
Warning:A hard reset erases all of the data and applications stored in RAM memory, reloads the OS, resets
the Real Time Clock (RTC), and launches Autoinstall, which installs any CAB or REG files in the
\\Honeywell\AutoInstall folder.
Hard resets automatically launch a soft reset as part of the boot process if there are CAB files present.
You would perform a Hard Reset (instead of a Soft Reset) when you want to ensure the RAM memory is
also cleared. RAM memory stores settings for Internet Explorer, Outlook, and other Microsoft
applications.
Note: Set the time and date after each hard reset to ensure that the system clock is accurate. Double-click the date
on the command bar to open the Clock setting and set the time and date.
Suspend Mode
Suspend Mode suspends terminal operation. The terminal appears to be “off” when in Suspend Mode.
The terminal is programmed to go into Suspend Mode automatically when inactive for a specified period
of time. You can set this time period in the Power setting.

Activating the Engine
When a scanning application is open, press the Scan key to activate the image engine.
Using Demos
Dolphin Demos are software utilities loaded on Dolphin terminals that demonstrate the advanced features
of the terminal. There are two Demos that feature the image engine: Image Demo and Scan Demo.
To access these demos, tap
> Demos.
• Select Scan Demo to verify decoding, or
• Select Image Demo to verify imaging (not available on device using the IS4813 laser engine).
Decoding
The Dolphin terminal supports two types of image decoding: Full-area imaging and Advanced Linear
Decoding (ALD).
Full-area Imaging
Full-area imaging means that the Dolphin terminal supports omni-directional aiming, meaning
that a positive read can be obtained from many positions. For details, see Omni-Directional
Scanning Positions on page 5-4.
ALD
ALD provides fast reading of linear (1D) and stacked linear bar codes (PDF417). For the best
read, the aiming pattern 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
1.
Tap
> Demos > Scan Demo.
2.
Position the Dolphin terminal over one of the sample bar codes on page 5-4.
A range of 4-10 inches (10-25 cm) from the bar code is recommended.
3.
Project the aiming brackets by pressing and holding the Scan key. The Scan LED lights red.
4.
Center the aimer crosshair over the bar code. The aiming beam should be oriented in line with the
bar code to achieve optimal decoding; Omni-Directional Scanning Positions, page 5-4
5.
When the bar code is successfully decoded, the decode LED lights green and the terminal beeps.
5-3
Sample Bar Codes
You can use the following bar codes to verify decoding:
Sample 128
Sample PDF417
Code 128
PDF417 Test Message
Omni-Directional Scanning Positions
The high-vis aiming pattern frames the bar code to provide you with the best scanning performance.
Note: To achieve the best read, the aiming beam should be centered horizontally across the bar code.
The aiming pattern is smaller when the terminal is held closer to the code and larger when the terminal is
held farther from the code. Symbologies with smaller bars or elements (mil size) should be read closer to
the unit whereas larger bars or elements (mil size) should be read farther from the unit.
Capturing Images (5300 Engine only)
The image-capture process is an intuitive, split-second operation for experienced users. By following
basic guidelines, however, new users can easily develop their own technique and, with practice, quickly
learn to adapt 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 and has a slightly degraded
appearance compared to the captured image. This is normal; the captured image has a higher
resolution.
File Formats
The Dolphin terminal is capable of saving images in a number of industry-standard file formats
(BMP, JPG and PNG). The default file format for images is a grayscale BMP.
File Size
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 the image. The average
size of the image file is approximately 4-8K. However, the size of the image depends on image
content; the more complex the content, the larger the file size.
5-4
Taking an Image
1.
Tap
> Demos > Image Demo.
2.
Point the Dolphin terminal at the object.
3.
Press the Scan key to activate the engine. The touch screen displays a preview of the object.
4.
Adjust the terminal’s position until the preview on the screen is as you want it to appear in the image.
5.
Hold the terminal still and release the Scan key.
The touch screen flashes, and the captured image appears on the screen.
6.
By default, the image is saved to the My Documents folder in My Device.
To save the image to another location, tap File > Save As.
High-Vis Aiming Pattern
If your Dolphin terminal is configured with the 5300SR imager, you can enable the aiming pattern for
imaging in the Image Demo application.
1.
Tap
> Demos > Image Demo > Setup menu > Aimer.
2.
The aiming pattern is now enabled for imaging.
Uploading Images
Image files can be transmitted to a host workstation via the following methods. Refer to the
Communication or Working with the Bluetooth Radio chapters.
• Microsoft ActiveSync and a Dolphin communication peripheral
• Wireless radio: 802.11b/g and/or Bluetooth

To synchronize data between the terminal and the workstation, ActiveSync (version 4.5 or higher) or
Windows Mobile Device Center must be installed and configured for the appropriate communication type
on the host workstation (Windows-based PC) and the Dolphin terminal. Dolphin terminals ship with
ActiveSync already installed. Therefore, if ActiveSync is already installed on the host workstation, you
just need to connect the Dolphin terminal to the host workstation (via Dolphin peripheral) to initiate communication.
If ActiveSync (4.5 or higher) or Windows Mobile Device Center is not installed on the host workstation,
you can download and install the most current version of the software from the Microsoft Web site
(http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=147001).
Note: ActiveSync on your Dolphin terminal works with Windows Mobile Device Center on host workstations running
Windows Vista or Windows 7 and with ActiveSync on host workstations running Windows XP. For detailed
information on ActiveSync and WMDC visit the Microsoft Windows Phone Web site.
!
When communicating via ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center, your terminal is designed to be

Dolphin HomeBase/eBase Device
Overview
Note: The information in this chapter applies to both the Dolphin HomeBase and Dolphin eBase devices unless
otherwise indicated.
As the hub of your Dolphin 6500 system, the Dolphin HomeBase charging and communication cradle
supports full-speed USB 1.1 and RS-232 communication with a workstation. The Dolphin eBase is
identical to the Dolphin HomeBase except it supports Ethernet communication as well as USB 1.1, and
RS-232.
Communication
The base can communicate via USB or serial RS-232 (or Ethernet for the eBase). Data transmission for
USB is up to 12 Mbps. Data transmission for serial RS-232 is up to 115 Kbps.
These bases cannot be physically connected to each other–sometimes referred to as “daisy-chaining”–
but can be networked together via serial or USB hubs.
Battery Charging
The base completes a full charge of a fully depleted main battery pack in an average of 5 1/2 hours. It
takes less time if the battery has some charge.
In addition to charging, the base powers the terminal’s intelligent battery charging system, which protects
the battery from being damaged by overcharging. The terminal senses when a battery pack is fully
charged and automatically turns off the charger. If the battery voltage drops below the charge threshold,
the charger turns on again to maintain the battery at full capacity. As a result, Dolphin terminals may be
stored in the base indefinitely without damage to the terminals, battery packs, or peripherals. For
prolonged storage, see Storage Guidelines on page 3-14. The base can also charge a second battery
while the terminal is positioned in the base. See Charging a Spare Battery on page 10-6.
Power Supply
The power cable that ships with each terminal also powers the base.
!
We recommend use of Honeywell peripherals, power cables, and power adapters. Use of any non-Honeywell
peripherals, cables, or power adapters may cause damage not covered by the warranty.
!
We recommend use of Honeywell Li-Ion battery packs. Use of any non-Honeywell battery may result in
damage not covered by the warranty.
!
Ensure all components are dry prior to mating terminals/batteries with peripheral devices. Mating wet
components may cause damage not covered by the warranty.

The USB port is full-speed (v1.1). Using the USB cable, you can connect the base to a USBcompliant device to facilitate USB communication to and from the terminal. USB
communication occurs through Microsoft ActiveSync (v.4.1 or higher). For more information
about ActiveSync setup, see Connecting and Synchronizing the Terminal and Workstation on
page 8-8.
Serial Port
The serial port supports serial communication between the terminal and another device. Note
that the connector is a DB9 Male connector, requiring a female connector on the serial cable.
The following four signals are supported:
• Transmitted Data
• Received Data
• Request to Send
• Clear to Send
Note: ActiveSync is not supported over the serial port.
Ethernet Port (eBase only)
Using an Ethernet cable, you can connect the eBase to an Ethernet-compliant device to facilitate Ethernet
communication to and from the terminal. This equipment is for indoor use only. The communication
wiring is limited to the inside of a building.
10 - 3
Powering the Dolphin HomeBase Device
The terminal requires 5 volts DC input for communication and battery charging; the power adapter on the
power cable converts the voltage from the power source to 5 volts DC. Only power adapter cables from
Honeywell convert the voltage appropriately.
The same power cable that ships with each terminal can be used to power the base. This cable contains
a plug adapter for each geography (US, UK, EU, etc.).

When a terminal is properly seated, the base powers the terminal, charges the terminal’s main battery
pack, and launches ActiveSync (see Connecting and Synchronizing the Terminal and Workstation on
page 8-8).
Honeywell recommends that you leave the base connected to its power source at all times, so that it is
always ready to use.
eBase Clamp-on Ferrite Core Installation
We recommend that you install the clamp-on ferrite core included with your Dolphin® eBase on your
Ethernet cable. Installation of the ferrite is required to meet the declared FCC emission levels.
10 - 4
The following illustration shows how to install the ferrite on the cable. It should be placed approximately
1.57 inches (40mm) from the RJ45 plug. The cable should be looped around the core, as shown.
Charging the Main Battery
The base powers the terminal and fully charges its main
battery pack in an average of 5 1/2 hours for a fully depleted
battery. It takes less time if the battery has some charge.
As battery packs charge, the charging circuitry follows the twostep charging process (CC-CV) that is recommended for Li-Ion
batteries. The process monitors changes in temperature,
current, and voltage.

Battery Charging
Charging Process
This charger charges Dolphin 6500 Li-Ion 3300mAh packs in an average of 5 1/2 hours for a fully depleted
battery. It takes less time if the battery has some charge. Each charging slot works independently of the
other three. As battery packs charge, the charging circuitry follows the two-step charging process (CCCV) that is recommended for Li-Ion batteries. The process monitors changes in temperature, current, and
voltage.
Temperature
The six-hour charge time applies when batteries are charged within the recommended temperature range
of 50° to 95° F (10° to 35°C). Temperature has a significant effect on charging. For best results, battery
packs should be at room temperature before inserting in the charger.
When the battery temperature exceeds 40°C, the charger may exceed the stated six-hour charge
! time. The charger stops charging if the battery temperature is greater than 40°C, but will begin
charging again when the battery temperature is less than 40°C.

Limited Warranty
Honeywell International Inc. ("HII") warrants its products and optional accessories to be free from defects
in materials and workmanship and to conform to HII’s published specifications applicable to the products
purchased at the time of shipment. This warranty does not cover any HII product which is (i) improperly
installed or used; (ii) damaged by accident or negligence, including failure to follow the proper
maintenance, service, and cleaning schedule; or (iii) damaged as a result of (A) modification or alteration
by the purchaser or other party, (B) excessive voltage or current supplied to or drawn from the interface
connections, (C) static electricity or electro-static discharge, (D) operation under conditions beyond the
specified operating parameters, or (E) repair or service of the product by anyone other than HII or its
authorized representatives.
This warranty shall extend from the time of shipment for the duration published by HII for the product at
the time of purchase ("Warranty Period"). Any defective product must be returned (at purchaser’s
expense) during the Warranty Period to HII factory or authorized service center for inspection. No product
will be accepted by HII without a Return Materials Authorization, which may be obtained by contacting
HII. In the event that the product is returned to HII or its authorized service center within the Warranty
Period and HII determines to its satisfaction that the product is defective due to defects in materials or
workmanship, HII, at its sole option, will either repair or replace the product without charge, except for
return shipping to HII.
EXCEPT AS MAY BE OTHERWISE PROVIDED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE FOREGOING
WARRANTY IS IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER COVENANTS OR WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESSED OR
IMPLIED, ORAL OR WRITTEN, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES
OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT.
HII’S RESPONSIBILITY AND PURCHASER’S EXCLUSIVE REMEDY UNDER THIS WARRANTY IS
LIMITED TO THE REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT OF THE DEFECTIVE PRODUCT WITH NEW OR
REFURBISHED PARTS. IN NO EVENT SHALL HII BE LIABLE FOR INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, AND, IN NO EVENT, SHALL ANY LIABILITY OF HII ARISING IN
CONNECTION WITH ANY PRODUCT SOLD HEREUNDER (WHETHER SUCH LIABILITY ARISES
FROM A CLAIM BASED ON CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT, OR OTHERWISE) EXCEED THE
ACTUAL AMOUNT PAID TO HII FOR THE PRODUCT. THESE LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITY SHALL
REMAIN IN FULL FORCE AND EFFECT EVEN WHEN HII MAY HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE
POSSIBILITY OF SUCH INJURIES, LOSSES, OR DAMAGES. SOME STATES, PROVINCES, OR
COUNTRIES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATIONS OF INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO
YOU.
All provisions of this Limited Warranty are separate and severable, which means that if any provision is
held invalid and unenforceable, such determination shall not affect the validity of enforceability of the
other provisions hereof. Use of any peripherals not provided by the manufacturer may result in damage
not covered by this warranty. This includes but is not limited to: cables, power supplies, cradles, and
docking stations. HII extends these warranties only to the first end-users of the products. These
warranties are non-transferable.

• The duration of the limited warranty for touch screens is one year.
• The duration of the limited warranty for Dolphin HomeBase, Dolphin Mobile Mount, Dolphin
ChargeBase, Dolphin Mobile Charger, and Dolphin QuadCharger is one year.
• The duration of the limited warranty for batteries is one year.
Use of any battery from a source other than Honeywell may result in damage not covered by the
warranty. Batteries returned to Honeywell International Inc. in a reduced state may or may not be
replaced under this warranty. Battery life will be greatly increased when following the battery
instructions in this user’s guide.
