Introduction
The MX5 is a rugged, portable, hand-held computer that uses Microsoft®
Windows® for Pocket PC 2000 or Pocket PC 2002 software. The MX5 can
transmit information using a 2.4 GHz radio (with an internally mounted antenna)
and it can store information for later transmission through an RS-232, InfraRed
or communication port.
The MX5 is vertically oriented and features backlighting for the display and the
keypad. The touch-screen display supports graphic features and icons that the
Pocket PC operating system supports.
The MX5 can be scaled from a limited function batch computer to an integrated
RF scanning computer. The MX5 is powered by a 2800 mAh Lithium-Ion main
battery pack and an internal backup battery.
A stylus is attached to the MX5 to assist in entering data and configuring the
unit.
See Also “Identify Your Device”.
Warning: Standard MX5 units are not approved for Hazardous Location
use.
Important: Until the main battery and backup battery are completely
depleted, the MX5 is always drawing power from the batteries
(On). The MX5 is to be used with a power supply (LXE P/N
MX5A305PSACUS).
If the mobile device has AppLock installed, please refer to “MX5 Reference
Guide”, “Chapter 4 – AppLock” for setup and processing information before
continuing.

Important Battery Information
Note:
•
•
•
•
This mobile device's backup battery maintains it’s charge by drawing
power from the main battery pack. Always store unused devices with a
fully charged main battery pack installed. LXE recommends an in-use
mobile device be frequently connected to an external power source to
retain optimum power levels in the main battery pack and the backup
battery. When the backup battery and main battery pack are dead, the
mobile device reverts to the last saved setup default values when a fully
charged main battery pack is installed and the device is powered On
again.
Until the main battery and backup battery are completely depleted, the MX5
is always drawing power from the batteries (On).
New batteries must be fully charged prior to use.
Whenever possible, use the AC power adapter with the MX5 to conserve the
main battery and recharge the backup battery.
When a new battery is installed in the MX5 for the first time (or when the
Backup battery is completely depleted), the Time and Date reverts to it’s
default values.

Note:
If the MX5 has a dead Main Battery and is as cold as the extended
operating temperature’s lowest value, the unit must be warmed to above
–20°C (-4°F) before installing a new Main Battery pack and the system
powered on.
Quick Start
This section's instructions are based on the assumption that your new system is
pre-configured and requires only accessory installation (e.g. hand strap) and a
power source.
Use this guide as you would any other source book -- reading portions to learn
about the MX5, and then referring to it when you need more information about a
particular subject. This guide takes you through an introduction to and operation
of the LXE MX5.
In general, the sequence of events is:
1. Insert a fully charged battery. (Always put a fully charged battery in the MX5
at the beginning of the shift or workday.)
2. Connect an external power source to the unit (if required).
3. If the screen does not automatically display, tap the Power key.
4. Adjust screen display, audio volume and other parameters if desired.
To set up the MX5 integrated scanner barcode reading parameters, please
refer to the “Integrated Scanner Programming Guide” on the LXE Manuals
CD or the LXE website www.lxe.com. Your device may have a SE1223, SE1224
or SE2223 scan engine.
Troubleshooting
Can’t align the screen,
change the date/time or
adjust the volume.
AppLock is installed and running on the mobile
device. AppLock restricts access to the control
panels. Contact your System Administrator.
Accessing Files on a CompactFlash Card
Tap the Windows icon | Programs | File Explorer | My Documents | My
Device | Compact Flash folder. The CompactFlash socket is located in a
recess underneath the MX5’s main battery.
About Lithium-Ion Batteries
Li-Ion batteries (like all batteries) gradually lose their capacity over time (in a
linear fashion) and never just stop working. This is important to remember -- the
MX5 is always 'on' even when in the Suspend state and draws battery power at
all times. Tap the Windows icon | Settings | System | Handheld Settings
tab to check the battery status and power reading.
The following chart is an approximation. Actual battery capacity will vary based
on usage, ambient temperature and peripherals drawing power from the MX5:
100% capacity
2800 mAh minimum
80% capacity
2240 mAh minimum
Deciding when to put a fully charged Main Battery pack in the MX5 is difficult to
quantify because it is very application specific. 1000 mAh may be the cutoff for
one customer who uses the computer frequently, while 500 mAh may be
perfectly fine for a customer who occasionally uses the computer. You need to
determine the point at which battery life becomes unacceptable for your
business practices and replace the Main Battery pack before that point.
How To . . . .
Insert Main Battery
The Battery Compartment is located at the bottom of the back of the computer.
The fasteners in the main battery Pack are connected to the Battery Pack. Press
the Power key after the battery is inserted into the MX5.
Note:
Note:
On first use the battery pack should be charged with an external power
source (i.e. AC Adapter) – 3 hours for the main battery and 7 hours for
the backup battery. New main battery packs alone must be charged prior
to first use -- this process takes up to four hours in an LXE MultiCharger.
Using the battery removal tool (or a coin) twist each fastener to the left
to loosen the battery pack. Twist the fastener to the right to tighten the
battery pack.
Place the battery in the battery well, making sure the tabs on the bottom of the
battery pack fit into the slots at the bottom end of the battery well. Push the
battery down into the battery well while fastening the screws.
Fasten the screws tight enough to allow the rubber gasket to create a watertight
seal. If the screws do not easily twist into the threaded opening, remove the
battery pack and repeat the process.
When the main battery pack is charging, the Battery Charge LED flashes green.
The backup battery is trickle-charged by the main battery. There is no backup
battery charging indicator.
Whenever possible, use the AC power adapter with the MX5 to conserve the
main battery and charge the backup battery.
If the MX5 has a dead main battery and is as cold as the extended operating
temperature’s lowest value, the unit must be warmed to above –20°C (-4°F)
before installing a new main battery pack and pressing the On button.
Using the Power Key
Note:
Refer to the section titled "Power Modes" in the “MX5 Reference Guide”
for information relating to the power states of the MX5.
The Power key is located next to the <Z> key on the keypad. When a battery is
inserted in the MX5 for the first time press the Power key.
Tapping the Power key places the MX5 immediately in Suspend mode. Tapping
the Power key again, or connecting to AC power, immediately returns the MX5
from Suspend.
Reboot Sequence
When the Pocket PC desktop is displayed or an application begins, the power up
(or reboot) sequence is complete. If you have previously saved your settings,
they will be restored on reboot. Application changes are saved when OK is
clicked on an application applet.
Warm Reset
Hold down the Power key and the Orange key for 4+ seconds until the display
blanks, then release the keys. A warm reset does not affect the operating system
and no data loss occurs.
Cold Reset
Hold down the Power key, the Blue key and the Orange keys for 4+ seconds.
The following steps will need to be performed when the MX5 powers on again:
1. Calibrate the touch screen.
2. Set the geographical Location.
3. Set the date and time.
Important:-- Because of the extreme nature of the Cold Reset, LXE
recommends that the Cold Reset be used only as an emergency
procedure and the Warm Reset be used whenever necessary.
LXE recommends the RegSave file be run whenever configuration
changes are made.
Note:
When performing a Cold Reset on a device, the system will ask if you
want to overwrite files –LXE recommends selecting “No” and continuing
with the Cold Reset process.
Connect External Power Supply (Optional)
The MX5 receives AC/DC power from the US AC/DC 12V Power Supply or the
MX5 Cradle.
The MX5 DC power jack is located at the base of the MX5. The cradle power jack
(if available) is located on the back of the cradle.
The A/C power cable is not included with the Power Supply, please contact your
LXE representative for replacement power cables. When the power cable is
connected to a wall outlet and the Power Supply, the ON indicator on the Power
Supply illuminates green.
1. Squeeze the sides of the power connector and push the power cable
connector into the MX5 power jack. The click means the connector is
seated firmly.
2. The CHGR LED above the keypad illuminates when the MX5 is receiving
external power through the power jack. The Main Battery recharges
when the MX5 is connected to an external power source.
Note:
When the MX5 is receiving power through a cradle connected to external
power, the MX5's CHGR LED is illuminated.The MX5 backup battery
recharges when the MX5 is connected to external power.
Connect Audio Jack (Optional)
The MX5 audio jack is located on the top of the unit next to the scan aperture.
The internal speaker is disabled when the audio jack is connected.
Insert the barrel end of the connector into the MX5 audio jack and push in firmly.
Note:
The audio option draws power from the Main Battery Pack.
Install Pistol Grip Handle (Optional)
The MX5 can be purchased with a customer-installable pistol grip handle. The
handle enables the user of the MX5 to hold the unit while pointing and activating
the scanner with one hand. Pressing the trigger activates the scanner and
functions the same as the Scan key on the keypad. With the handle installed the
Scan key on the keypad remains active. The trigger duplicates the operation.
The handle is built of a durable and flexible plastic that will not detach from the
MX5 if the unit is dropped.
The trigger handle is a mechanical device. Battery or external A/C power is not
required for operation of the trigger handle. The trigger handle does not need to
be removed when replacing the Main Battery pack.
Either the trigger handle is attached to the MX5 or the handstrap is attached, not
both.
Handle Installation
1. Place the MX5, with the screen facing down, on a flat stable surface.
2. Slip the L-shaped plastic hooks, at the top of the handle, into the slots
on each side of the back of the MX5 and slide the handle downward until
the screw holes are visible.
3. Attach the pistol grip handle to the MX5 with the set of three screws and
washers provided.
4. Test the handle's connection making sure the MX5 is securely connected
to the handle.
Periodically check the pistol grip handle for wear and the connection for
tightness. If the handle gets worn or damaged, it must be replaced. If the pistol
grip connection loosens, it must be tightened before the MX5 is placed in service.
Install Handstrap
Note:
Either the trigger handle is attached to the MX5 or the handstrap is
attached, not both. LXE recommends that, in the absence of a trigger
handle, the handstrap be used at all times.
An elastic hand strap is available for the MX5. Once installed, the hand strap
provides a means for the user to secure the computer to their hand. It is
adjustable to fit practically any size hand and is easily moved to allow installation
or removal of the MX5 battery pack.
Installation
1. If a handle is installed, remove it at this time. See section “Install Pistol
Grip Handle.”
2. Slip the strap through the upper bracket prior to securing the upper
bracket to the unit.
3. When slipping the strap through the bracket make sure the closed loop
fastener surface is up.
4. After slipping the strap through the bracket, fold the strap over so that
the two closed loop fastener surfaces mate evenly.
5. Prior to securing the upper bracket to the unit, slide the bottom
assembly into the slots at the bottom of the MX5. Insure that both ends
of the bottom assembly are securely installed.
6. After securing the bottom of the strap to the MX5, loosen the closed loop
fastener strap and then secure the upper bracket to the unit with a
screw.
Removal
1. Separate the closed loop fastener tabs and loosen the strap through the
upper bracket.
2. Using a Phillips screwdriver, remove the upper bracket screw.
3. Pull the bottom assembly from the slots in the bottom back of the MX5..
Slide the bottom bracket out and away from the MX5 when replacing the Main
Battery Pack.
Periodically check the handstrap for wear and the connection for tightness. If the
handstrap gets worn or damaged, it must be replaced. If the handstrap
connection loosens, it must be tightened before the MX5 is placed in service.
Tap the Touchscreen with a Stylus
Note:
Always use the point of the stylus for tapping or making strokes on the
display. Never use an actual pen, pencil or sharp object to write on the
touch screen.
Hold the stylus as if it were a pen or pencil. Touch an element on the screen with
the tip of the stylus then remove the stylus from the screen. Firmly press the
stylus into the stylus holder on the MX5 when the stylus is not in use.

Press Enter to cancel (exit) Volume Adjust mode. After pressing enter, the MX5
should start responding to key input.
Entering Data
You can enter data into the MX5 through several different methods. The Scanner
aperture provides barcode data entry, the RS-232 or the IR port are used to
input/output data, and the keypad provides manual entry.
MX5's with a touch screen and Microsoft Pocket PC software can use a stylus to
input data, the COM ports and/or the keypad. A virtual keyboard is available in
applications that expect keyed input.
Keypad Entry
The keypad is used to manually input data that is not collected otherwise. Almost
any function that a full sized computer keyboard can provide is duplicated on the
MX5 keypad but it may take a few more keystrokes to accomplish a keyed task.
Almost every key has two or three different functions. The primary alpha or
numeric character is printed on the key.
The Orange or Blue keys are pressed when you want to use a 2nd key function.
For example, when you press a Blue or Orange key (the 2nd key), then press the

Stylus Data Entry
Note:
Note:
This section is directed to the MX5 daily user. The assumption is that the
unit has been configured and the touch panel calibrated by the System
Administrator prior to releasing the MX5 for daily use. The touch screen
should be calibrated before initial use.
Always use the point of the stylus for tapping or making strokes on the
display. Never use an actual pen, pencil or sharp object to write on the
touch screen.
The stylus performs the same function as the mouse that is used to point to and
click elements on a desk top computer. The stylus is used in the same manner as
a mouse – single tap or double tap to select menu options, drag the stylus across
text to select, hold the stylus down to activate slider bars, etcetera.
Hold the stylus as if it were a pen or pencil. Touch an element on the screen with
the tip of the stylus then remove the stylus from the screen. The touch screen
responds to an actuation force (touch) of 4 oz. (or greater) of pressure.
The stylus can be used in conjunction with the keyboard and scanner and an
input/output device connected to one of the MX5's serial ports.
•
•
•
Touch the stylus to the field of the data entry form to receive the next data
feed.
The cursor begins to flash in the field.
The unit is ready to accept data from either the physical keypad, virtual
keyboard, integrated scanner or a scanner connected to the serial port on
the cradle, if the scanner applet is configured correctly.
Scanner Entry
Read all cautions, warnings and labels before using the laser scanner.
To scan with the laser barcode reader, point the laser window towards a barcode
and press the Scan button. You will see a red laser beam strike the barcode.
Align the red beam so that the barcode is centered within the beam. The laser
beam must cross the entire barcode. Move the MX5 towards or away from the
barcode so that the barcode takes up approximately two-thirds the width of the
beam.
The Scanner Active LED turns red when the laser beam is on. Following a
barcode scan and read the Scanner Active LED turns green for two seconds and
the MX5 beeps, indicating a successful scan.
The laser and Scanner Active LED automatically turn off after a successful or
unsuccessful read. The scanner is ready to scan again after the Scan key is
released, or after the green LED turns off following a successful scan.
Voice Recording
In Calendar, Tasks, and Contacts, you can include a recording in the Notes tab.
In the Notes program, you can either create a stand-alone recording, or include
a recording in a written note.

programmed to perform other functions when there is no internal scanner.
COM Ports
The MX5 supports three COM port options.
COM 1 port is always the left RS-232 port on the base of the MX5. COM 1 port
accepts RS-232, USB and AC power connectors.
The RS-232 port on the docking cradle is “connected” to the MX5 when a
tethered scanner is connected to the RS-232 port on the MX5 cradle, and the
MX5 is in the cradle. The cradle must be powered by an alternate AC or DC
power source to enable tethered scanner use.
The COM 3 port is always the IR port on the base of the MX5.
COM 4 is always the right RS-232 port on the base of the MX5. COM 4 port
accepts RS-232 and AC power connectors.
To edit Scanner Com Port parameters, tap the Windows icon | Settings |
System | Scanner. Click the "Send Key Messages (WEDGE)" checkbox. The
COM port that accepts the scanner data can be configured for data rate, parity,
stop bits and data bits using the COM1 tab.
Tethered Scanners and the MX5
LXE cable number MX5A055CBL3IND26D9M must be used with PowerScan® SR,
LR and XLR tethered scanners connected directly to the MX5 device. Do not
connect Symbol® tethered scanners to the MX5 device or to this cable.
Both PowerScan and Symbol tethered scanners will send scanned data to the
MX5 when the MX5 is in the cradle and the scanners are connected to the RS232 port on the powered cradle.
The MX5 Scan buttons have no effect on tethered scanners. Pressing the trigger
handle on tethered scanners sends the data from the tethered scanner to the
MX5.
Note:
When using the 8500 Series tethered scanners, the tethered scanner
Power Mode must be set to “Reduced Power Mode”to conserve battery
life. The reduced power mode setting will not impact performance of the
8500 series scanner. The default mode is “Continuous On”. Please refer
to the manufacturer’s user guide for instruction.
USB Port
The USB port requires a DB26 to USB cable (available from LXE). The serial
port/USB port also supports serial data transfer (using a null modem cable) and
non-host USB I/O at 1.5 Mbps. The MX5 automatically detects the cable
configuration. Refer to section titled "Accessories" in this manual for part
numbers for the DB26-USB cable and the null modem cable.
IR Port
The InfraRed (IR) port provides a means of transferring information to a device
with a similar port and the proper software. The IR port can be used to
communicate with printers or a host computer with the use of an adapter.
The IR Port is specified as COM 3 and is a bi-directional half-duplex infrared port.
It supports the Slow IrDA (Infrared Data Access) PHY Layer standard that allows
communication speeds up to 115k baud.
When sending data through the IR port to another MX5's IR port, make sure
both units are in close proximity to each other. The IR operating envelope has a
distance range of 2 cm (.79 inches) to 15 centimeters (6 inches) with a viewing
angle of 30 degrees.
See the "MX5 Reference Guide" for complete instructions.
The Keypad
The keymaps (keypress sequences) are located in “Appendix A - Key Maps.”
Scan Key Function
When programmed as Scan keys, either the left or right Scan key activates the
scanner. The internal scanner scans only when the Scan button is pressed (or
when the scan trigger is pressed on the optional trigger handle, if installed).
Enter Key Function
The Enter key is used to confirm a forms entry or to transmit information. How it
is used is determined by the application running on the computer.
2nd Key Function
The Orange (on the upper left side of the keypad) and Blue (on the upper right
side of the keypad) keys are 2nd keys used to activate the 2nd functions of the
keypad. Printed above many keys are small characters, in either orange (on the
left side of the key) or blue (on the right side of the key), that represent the 2nd
function of that key. Using the 2nd key activates the second key function. Note
that the 2nd key only stays active for one keystroke. Each time you need to use
the 2nd function you must press the Orange or Blue 2nd key. To cancel a 2nd
function before pressing another key, press the 2nd key again.
Ctrl Key Function
The Ctrl key enables the control functions of the keypad. This function is similar
to a regular keyboard’s Control key. Note that the Ctrl key only stays active for
one keystroke. Each time you need to use a Ctrl function, you need to press the
Ctrl key before pressing the desired key.
Alt Key Function
The Alt key enables the alternate functions of the keypad. This function is similar
to a regular keyboard’s Alt key. Note that the Alt key only stays active for one
keystroke. Each time you need to use an alternate function, you need to press
the Alt key before pressing the desired key.
Shft Key Function
The Shft key enables the shifted functions of the keypad. This function is similar
to a regular keyboard’s Shift key. Note that the Shift key only stays active for one
keystroke. Each time you need to use a Shifted function, you need to press the
Shft key before pressing the desired key.
When the Shft key is pressed the next key is determined by the major key
legends, i.e., the alpha keys display lower case letters -- when CAPS is On alpha
characters are capitalized. For example, when CAPS is On and the Shft key and
the G key are pressed, a lower case g is displayed.
Spc Key Function
The Spc key adds a space to the line of data on the display. This function is
similar to a regular keyboard’s Spacebar. Note that the Spc key only stays active
for one keystroke.
Field Exit Function
IBM TN5250 specific keypad only. The left Scan key can be programmed as
a Field Exit key. The Field Exit key is used to exit an input field. If the field is an
Auto Enter field, the auto transmit function is activated. Refer to the

External Power Supply for MX5 and Cradles
The MX5 DC adapter can be plugged into either of the D26 pin connectors on the
bottom of the MX5.
The cradle power jack is located on the back of the cradle. The MX5 is to be
used with a power supply.
When the MX5 is receiving power through a cradle connected to external power,
the cradle's Status LED is illuminated.
Batteries
Note:
On first use the MX5 batteries should be charged with an external power
source (i.e. AC Adapter) – 3 hours for the Main Battery and 7 hours for
the Backup Battery. New Main Battery packs alone must be charged prior
to first use -- this process takes up to four hours in an LXE MultiCharger.
The MX5 computer is designed to work with a Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) battery from
LXE. Under normal conditions it should last approximately eight to ten hours
before requiring a recharge. The more you use the scanner or the RF
transmitter, the shorter the time required between battery recharges. The MX5
keeps date and time valid for a minimum of four days using a fully charged
Backup Battery and a Main Battery that has reached the Low Warning point.
Main Battery
The main battery has a rugged plastic enclosure that is designed to withstand
the ordinary rigors of an industrial environment. Exercise care when transporting
the battery making sure it does not come in contact with excessive heat or any
power source other than an LXE Multi-charger or MX5 unit.
The fasteners are connected to the Main Battery pack and remain with the
Battery Pack through it’s life cycle. Contact your LXE representative if the
fasteners must be replaced for any reason.
Backup Battery
The internal Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) coin cell backup battery provides power
to the unit for up to 24 hours when the main battery has been depleted,
removed or has failed. The backup battery requires no user intervention.
Replacement is performed by LXE. LXE recommends an MX5 in storage have a
charged main battery pack installed.
Note:
This mobile device's backup battery maintains it’s charge by drawing
power from the main battery pack. Always store unused devices with a
fully charged main battery pack installed. LXE recommends an in-use
mobile device be frequently connected to an external power source to
retain optimum power levels in the main battery pack and the backup
battery. When the backup battery and main battery pack are dead, the
mobile device reverts to setup defaults when a fully charged main
battery pack is installed and the device is powered On again.
Battery Hot-Swapping
Replace the main battery pack after first pressing the power key and placing the
MX5 in Suspend Mode. LXE recommends any work in progress be saved prior to
replacing the main battery pack.
Simply replace the discharged main battery with a fully-charged main battery.
The backup battery will retain data during a main battery hot-swap.
Place the battery in the battery well, making sure the tabs on the bottom of the
battery pack fit into the slots at the bottom end of the battery well. Push the
battery down into the battery well while fastening the screws. Fasten the screws
tight enough to allow the rubber gasket to create a watertight seal. If the screws
do not easily twist into the threaded opening, remove the battery and repeat the
process.
Checking Battery Status

Battery Chargers
Charge Battery in LXE Multi-Charger
The main battery can be charged in the LXE Multi-Charger. The Multi-charger
must not be used in Hazardous Locations.
Insert the main battery into any charging cup in the Multi-Charger. The narrow
end goes into the charging cup first. The retaining clip snaps the battery into
place in the charging cup. Remove the battery pack by pulling the battery
straight up and out.
Do not "slam" or drop the battery into the charging cup. Failure to follow these
instructions can result in damage to the main battery or the Multi-Charger.
Note:
The main battery can also be charged in the secondary battery charging
pocket in the Desktop cradles. An MX5 does not need to be in the cradle
at the time the secondary charging pocket is being used.
LXE Multi-Charger (Optional)
The main battery pack can be charged in the LXE Multi-Charger. Please refer to
the “MX5 Multi-Charger Operator’s Guide” for instruction.
The multi-charger requires an external power source before battery pack
charging can commence. The external Power Supply connection for the Multicharger is shipped with the multi-charger.
The LXE Multi-Charger is not approved for use in a Hazardous Location.
Cradles
Note:
The “MX5 Cradle Reference Guide” contains cradle installation and
technical information.
Important:
The cradles are not designed to secure an MX5 with
protective padded case. The vehicle cradle is not
designed to secure an MX5 with a trigger handle. The
desktop cradles will secure MX5’s with handstraps or
trigger handles.
MX5 docking cradles give the MX5 the ability to communicate with a host
computer and other devices. In addition, using wall AC adapters or DC/DC
converters, the cradle charges the Main Battery. The MX5 can be either on or in
suspend mode while in the cradles.
LXE offers three desktop cradles and one vehicle cradle:
Standard Desktop Cradle requires AC power before
main battery charging can commence. This cradle
does not have an active LED on the front housing.
MX5A002DESKCRADLE
Enhanced Desktop Cradle requires AC power before
main battery charging can commence. It will charge
both the main battery in the MX5 and another MX5
Battery Pack at the same time.
MX5A003EDESKCRADLE
Enhanced Desktop Cradle with Ethernet Port requires
AC power before main battery charging and host/client
communications can commence. It will charge both
the main battery in the MX5 CE. NET device and
another main battery pack at the same time.
MX5A004ETHDESKCRADLE
Vehicle Mount Cradle requires AC/DC power before
main battery charging can commence.
MX5A001VMCRADLE
Note:
LXE offers a device similar in appearance to the MX5 Pocket PC device –
the LXE MX5 CE. NET device. All MX5 cradles can be used by the MX5s.
The Enhanced Desktop Cradle with Ethernet Port, developed
specifically for the MX5 CE. NET device, cannot be used by the MX5
PC 2002.
Cradle COM port and power cables are available from LXE. The RS-232 connector
is located on the back of the cradle. When the MX5 is properly docked, the COM
1 RS-232 interface connects with the DA9 RS-232 port in the cup at the front of
the cradle. The cup at the back of the desktop cradles accept a single Battery
Pack for charging.
The Ethernet port is located at the back of the Enhanced Desktop Cradle with
Ethernet Port.
MX5 cradles are not approved for use in Hazardous Locations.
