Introduction
Overview
The LXE MX3-RFID mobile device is a rugged, portable, hand-held Microsoft® Windows® CE
.NET equipped device capable of wireless data communications.
It is the RFID version of the LXE MX3X mobile device.
The mobile device 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 USB
port. The device can be scaled from a limited function batch computer to an integrated RF
scanning computer.
The mobile device is horizontally oriented and features backlighting for the display. The touchscreen display supports graphic features and Windows icons that the Windows CE .NET operating
system supports. The keys on the keypad are constructed of a phosphorescent material that can
easily be seen in dimly lighted areas.
The MX3-RFID has an RFID module permanently attached to the back of the device. The module
protects the RFID antenna and tag reader. A passive vehicle cradle is available that has been
designed specifically for the MX3-RFID device deeper back cover.
Device-specific cables are available. The stylus in the Stylus Kit (shipped with each unit) is used
to assist in entering data and configuring the unit. Protective film for the touchscreen is available
as an accessory.
Note:
Until the main battery and backup battery are completely depleted, the mobile device is
always drawing power from the main and backup batteries (On).

RFID Introduction
RFID Introduction
Radio frequency identification, or RFID, is a generic term for technologies that use radio waves to
automatically identify individual items. The individual items identified/read by a RFID reader
contain a tag (also known as an electronic label or transponder). Unlike barcodes that must be read
by a beam passing over the barcode, RFID tags do not have to be in the line of sight of the reader
before the reader can collect the data from the tag but they do need to be within the established
reading range of the RFID-module.
See the “MX3-RFID Reference Guide” for further information and configuration.
RFID Reader Scan Range
Type of Tag
Scan Range
Class 0 Tag
2 feet / .7 meters
Class 1 Tag
3 feet / .9 meters
C1G2 Tag
1 foot / .3 meters
Figure 8 RFID Tag Reading Ranges
Unlike barcode scanners that require line-of-sight before successfully reading a barcode, the RFID
reader does not require line-of-sight when searching for and reading tags. Pressing the RFID Read
button on the MX3-RFID starts a 360 degree search “beam” that stops at the limits of the scan
range of the RFID reader. The “beam” stops searching when the read timer expires.
Integrated Laser Scanner
The integrated laser barcode scanner can only read barcodes. The MX3-RFID cannot read barcode
labels and RFID labels at the same time. For example, the MX3-RFID can scan a barcode label
and when the good read/bad read/store data process is complete, it is then free to begin the process
of reading and storing the data from an RFID tag.
The RFID module can only read RFID tags.
• COM1 is the RFID module.
• COM3 is the integrated barcode scanner.
RFID and the MX3 Cradles
The MX3-RFID does not fit in the standard MX3 powered cradles. There is a passive vehicle
cradle available for the MX3-RFID that secures the device to the cradle only. See section titled
“Accessories”.
Main battery charging and host communication is not available directly through the passive
vehicle cradle. The passive vehicle cradle does not have LEDs or indicators. It does not accept DC
power connection. The MX3-RFID can be directly connected to external power through the power
jack located on the mobile device’s endcap. Host communication is available wirelessly while the
mobile device is secured in the passive vehicle cradle.

Quick Start
Note:
When your mobile device is pre-configured, the radio, PCMCIA card and endcaps are
assembled by LXE to your specifications.
This section’s instructions are based on the assumption that your new system is pre-configured
and requires only accessory installation (e.g. stylus) and a power source. LXE recommends that
installation or removal of accessories be performed on a clean, well-lit surface. When necessary,
protect the work surface, the mobile device, and components from electrostatic discharge.
This guide takes you through an introduction to and operation of the MX3-RFID.
In general, the sequence of events is:
1.
Insert a fully charged battery and press the Power button.
2.
Connect an external power source to the unit (if required).
3.

well) with anything other than the main battery.
Check Battery Status
Tap the Start | Settings | Control Panel | Power icon. Main and backup battery level, status and
Power Scheme timeout setting options are displayed.
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 – this mobile device is always ‘on’ even
when in the Suspend state and draws battery power at all times. Use the Start | Settings | Control
Panel | Power | Battery tab to check the battery status and power reading.

Always replace the used main battery with a fully charged main battery. The Battery Low
Warning LED illuminates red at approximately 35% of power left in the main battery. You need to
determine the point at which battery life becomes unacceptable for your business practices and
replace the main battery before that point.
Note:
Until the main battery and backup battery are completely depleted, the mobile device is
always drawing power from the batteries (On). After the backup battery and main battery
are depleted (dead), then when a fully charged main battery is installed, and the device
powered On again, the mobile device reverts to the last saved default (factory) values.
Follow the steps in “Getting Started”.

stylus then remove the stylus from the screen. Firmly press the stylus into the stylus holder when
the stylus is not in use.
Like using a mouse to left-click icons on a desktop computer screen, using the stylus to tap icons
on the touchscreen is the basic action that can:
• Open applications
• Choose menu commands
• Select options in dialog boxes or drop-down boxes
• Drag the slider in a scroll bar
• Select text by dragging the stylus across the text
• Place the cursor in a text box prior to typing in data or retrieving data using the integrated
barcode scanner or an input/output device connected to the serial port.
An extra or replacement stylus can be ordered from LXE. See the section titled "Accessories" for
the part numbers.

Enter Data
You can enter data into the mobile device through several different methods. The Scanner window
accepts barcode data entry, the RS-232 and the IR port are used to input/output data, and the
keypad and stylus provide manual entry. The RFID module can either read or read and write data.
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 mobile device’s 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.
For example, when the 2nd key is pressed, the 2nd key LED illuminates. By then pressing the
desired second-function key the device will then produce the 2nd character. The specific 2nd
character is printed above the corresponding key. The 2nd key LED turns off when key sequence
finishes (unless when setting volume or contrast – the 2nd key LED will flash at those times).
Please refer to “Appendix A - Key Maps” for instruction on the specific keypresses to access all
keypad functions.
Stylus Entry
The stylus performs the same function as a mouse that is used to point to and click elements on a
desktop 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. Always use the point of the stylus for tapping or making strokes on the display.
Never use an actual pen, pencil, sharp or abrasive object to write on the touchscreen.
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 touchscreen 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 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 keyboard, integrated scanner or a scanner
connected to the serial port, if the scanner applet is configured correctly.
Input Panel
The Input Panel icon looks like a keyboard and is shown in the System tray. To show or hide the
input panel, tap the Input Panel icon. Use the input panel to enter information in any program.

Figure 17 Scan Beam
Align the red beam so that the barcode is centered within the beam. The laser beam must cross the
entire barcode. Move the mobile device towards or away from the barcode so that the barcode
takes up approximately two-thirds the width of the beam.
Figure 18 Scanner LED Location
The SCNR LED turns red when the laser beam is on. Following a barcode scan and read the
SCNR LED turns green and the mobile device beeps, indicating a successful scan.
The laser and SCNR LED automatically turn off after a successful or unsuccessful read. The
scanner is ready to scan again when the Scan key is pressed.
Large barcodes can be scanned at the maximum distance. Hold the scanner closer to small
barcodes (or with bars that are very close together).
When the scan is successful, the Scan LED turns green, then switches off, and the mobile device
emits a distinctive audible tone.
When the scan is unsuccessful, the SCNR LED remains red until the 3 second timeout (default)
occurs or the Scan key is released. The mobile device emits distinctive audible tones. Check the
following:
• Check the barcode for marks or physical damage e.g. ripped label, missing section, etc.
• Try scanning test symbols of the same code type at different distances and angles.
• Is the scan aperture unscratched and unsoiled?

Batteries
Note:
New batteries must be charged prior to use. If the main battery and backup battery are
depleted, the computer reverts to factory default values. RF configuration parameters
will need to re-entered when the depleted main battery is replaced. The backup battery is
eventually recharged by the main battery.
The mobile device 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
recharging. The operating system 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 main battery making sure it does
not come in contact with excessive heat or any power source other than an LXE MultiCharger or
the mobile device.
Backup Battery
The internal Nickel Cadmium (NiCd) backup battery provides power to the device for a short
amount of time when the main battery has been depleted, removed or has failed. The backup
battery requires no user intervention. Replacement is performed by LXE.
Note:
An uninterrupted external power source (wall AC adapters or DC/DC converters)
transfers power to the computer’s internal charging circuitry which, in turn, recharges
the main battery and backup battery. Frequent connection to an external power source is
recommended to maintain backup battery charge status.
Battery Hot-Swapping
When the battery power level is low, the BATT-M LED illuminates and remains on. You can
replace the main battery without shutting the device off. Place the device in Suspend and simply
replace the discharged battery with a fully-charged battery. The backup battery will retain data
during a main battery hot-swap for at least five minutes.

The Passive Vehicle Cradle
The MX3-RFID cannot fit in standard MX3 charging cradles. The passive vehicle mount cradle is
designed for the MX3-RFID. The passive vehicle cradle does not have LEDs or indicators. The
passive vehicle cradle does not require an external power source.
The MX3-RFID seated in the passive cradle requires a power source, either from the main battery
or from power applied via the power jack on the endcap.
The cradle restrains the mobile device. The cradle is designed to be securely mounted to a vehicle.
The passive cradle does not have external device connectors e.g. power/serial cable. Power can be
applied to the mobile device through the power jack in the endcap only. Wireless client interaction
is available as long as the mobile device has sufficient energy in the main battery pack and a clear
signal path.
Figure 30 MX3-RFID Passive Cradle with Attached RAM Ball
The cradle is lined with strips of hook-and-loop fabric to ensure a snug fit between the mobile
device and the inside of the cradle. A thumb-spring at the top of the cradle secures the mobile
device in the cradle. Hold the thumb spring up and slide the device into the cradle, release the
thumb spring and it will click in place. The mobile device is removed from the cradle by pressing
the thumb spring up and then grasping the mobile device and pulling it straight up and away from
the cradle.
The vehicle cradle should be mounted in an area in the vehicle where it:
• Does not obstruct the driver's vision or safe vehicle operation.
• Will be protected from rain or inclement weather.
• Will be protected from extremely high concentrations of dust or wind-blown debris.
• Can be easily accessed by a user seated in the driver's seat.
A RAM ball cylinder mounting option is used to secure the cradle to the vehicle. A RAM ball may
be pre-installed to the cradle by LXE.
Check the cradle regularly for excessive wear at pressure points. If the cradle becomes cracked or
broken at any time, it must be taken out of service and replaced. Contact LXE Customer Service
for a replacement MX3-RFID passive cradle (see "Getting Help").

Before installation begins, verify you have the applicable vehicle mounting RAM ball assembly
components necessary for your mount type, as shown in the section titled “Passive Cradle
Assembly Components”.
Do not slide the mobile device into the passive cradle until the cradle is securely fastened to
the vehicle.
