Restriction on Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive
2002/95/EC
What is RoHS?
The European Union has mandated that high environmental standards be met in the
design and manufacture of electronic and electrical products sold in Europe, to reduce
hazardous substances from entering the environment. The “Restriction on Hazardous
Substances Directive (RoHS)” prescribes the maximum trace levels of lead, cad-
mium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, and flame retardants PBB and PBDE that
may be contained in a product. Only products meeting these high environmental
standards may be “placed on the market” in EU member states after July 1, 2006.
RoHS Logo
Although there is no legal requirement to mark RoHS-compliant products, Psion
Teklogix Inc. indicates its compliance with the directive as follows:
The RoHS logo located either on the back of the product or underneath the battery in
the battery compartment (or on a related accessory such as the charger or docking
station) signifies that the product is RoHS-compliant as per the EU directive. Other
than as noted below, a Psion Teklogix product that does not have an accompanying
RoHS logo signifies that it was placed on the EU market prior to July 1, 2006, and is
thereby exempt from the directive.
Note:
Not all accessories or peripherals will have a RoHS logo due to physical
space limitations or as a result of their exempt status.
Disclaimer
Every effort has been made to make this material complete, accurate, and up-todate. In addition, changes are periodically added to the information herein; these
changes will be incorporated into new editions of the publication.
Psion Teklogix Inc. reserves the right to make improvements and/or changes in the
product(s) and/or the program(s) described in this document without notice, and
shall not be responsible for any damages, including but not limited to consequential
damages, caused by reliance on the material presented, including but not limited to

8525 G2/8530 G2 Freezer & Outdoor Guidelines
2.3 8525 G2/8530 G2 Freezer & Outdoor Guidelines
8525 G2/8530 G2 vehicle-mounts are sealed against dust and high-pressure water
jets to the international standard IP66.
2.3.1 Important Operating Instructions
Warning:
IT IS CRITICAL that this information be reviewed and that any
guidelines applicable to your vehicle-mount be strictly followed.
For All Freezer Vehicle-Mounts
•
•
•
•
•
Use vehicle-mounts only in the environments for which they are designed.
All Psion Teklogix freezer vehicle-mounts have built-in heaters where
required to warm internal components. To help maintain the temperature,
units should be switched on before entry into a freezer environment and
should be left connected to vehicle power and running at all times while in a
freezer environment.
When moving between freezer and warm, humid environments, window
condensation or icing on the outside of the display window is a normal
occurrence. Wiping the condensation from the window may help, but the
operator may need to wait until the condensation stops forming before use.
To reduce condensation and frost on vehicle-mount displays, use an antifogging agent once a week or as required.
Contact lubricant and connector caps must be used on all external connectors to maintain a moisture barrier and prevent corrosion during freezer and
outdoor use. On all 8525 G2/8530 G2 vehicle-mount computers, the contact
lubricant –PN 95146 (Nyogel) must be used. Further, the appropriate
contact lubricant should be replaced at least monthly in applications requiring daily or frequent removal of cables. Refer to the table below for connector cap part numbers.

Important Operating Instructions
•
•
•
To prevent condensation when a vehicle-mount is moved from a freezer to a
warmer environment, it is recommended that the computer power be left on
for at least five minutes.
When not in use, vehicle-mount freezer units should be stored in temperatures above 0° C (32° F).
To prevent keyboard keys from freezing up, the keyboard should be
mounted off the horizontal plane. This allows water to run off the keyboard
and prevents it from pooling on the keypad, freezing and finally physically
jamming the keys. Mounting the keyboard off the horizontal plane also prevents water from dripping onto the keypad area.
Backup Battery
The vehicle-mount back up battery capacity is reduced as the operating temperature
cools. The table below provides a general outline of battery capacity based on the
operating temperature. Charging of the back up battery will occur between +5° C
and +45° C.
Note:
If the backup battery temperature is less than +10° C and a brown-out
occurs, the display backlight will switch off in order to maintain vehiclemount operations. The backlight will switch back on when external power
is restored or the battery temperature is above +10° C.

Setting Up Marvell-88W8300 802.11g Radios
If you are using an Ad Hoc network – a network in which 8525 G2/8530
G2s pass data directly to other 8525 G2/8530 G2s without an access point –
tap on the checkbox next to ‘This is an ad hoc network’ to enable Ad Hoc.
Encryption
WEP (Wired-Equivalent Privacy) encryption prevents others from accidentally accessing your network. If you are not using encryption, you can
choose Disabled from the dropdown encryption menu. Otherwise, leave
this field as is.
Note:
WEP cannot be disabled if you are using WPA or WPA-PSK authentication.
TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) is an encryption protocol included
as part of the IEEE 802.11 standard for wireless LANs. Designed to
enhance WEP, TKIP uses the original WEP programming but ‘wraps’ additional code at the beginning and end to encapsulate and modify it, encrypting each data packet with a unique encryption key.
Authentication
802.11 supports a number of subtypes of network authentication services:
Open, Shared, WPA and WPA-PSK.
Using Open authentication, any wireless station can request authentication.
The station that needs to authenticate with another wireless station sends an
authentication management frame that contains the identity of the sending
station. The receiving station then sends back a frame that indicates whether
it recognizes the identity of the sending station.
Using Shared authentication, each wireless station is assumed to have
received a secret shared key over a secure channel that is independent from
the 802.11 wireless network communications channel.
WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) uses the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol
(TKIP) to provide strong data encryption, and offers two user authentication and key management methods.
The first method of user authentication is intended for environments using a
centralized Authentication Server, such as RADIUS. User authentication is
based on IEEE 802.1X and mutual authentication based EAP.
In environments where a centralized Authentication Server or EAP framework is not available, user authentication is based on a ‘Pre-Shared Key’
method – WPA-PSK. If you are using Pre-Shared Key authentication, you
Psion Teklogix 8525 G2/8530 G2 Vehicle-Mount Computer User Manual

will need to manually enter a password (Master Key) in the Access Point or
Wireless Router and enter the same password in each client device that
accesses the wireless network. The manually configured WPA password
(Master Key) automatically starts the TKIP data encryption process.
Network Key:
This text box is used to specify a 5 or 13 ASCII character sequence or an
equivalent 10 or 26 Hexadecimal digit sequence that matches the active
WEP key on the access point.
• To assign a Network key, tap in the checkbox next to ‘The key is provided automatically’ to remove the check mark next to this option.
Tap in this checkbox to remove
the checkmark. This disables this
option, providing access to the
Network Key & Key Index fields.
Figure 2.6 Accessing Network Key And Key Index
Key Index:
This field is used to identify the WEP key.
• Enter a value from 1 to 4.
Enable 802.1x authentication
“802.1X” is the IEEE standard that offers additional security for local area
networks. It provides authentication for user devices attached to an Ethernet
network, whether wired or wireless. A security protocol packet such as TLS
or MD5 encapsulated in an “EAP” is used in conjunction with the “802.1x”
standard to authenticate users at the MAC layer. Available EAPs are listed
in the dropdown menu next to the ‘EAP’ option.
• To activate “802.1X”, tap on the checkbox next to ‘Enable 802.1x
authentication’, and press the [SPACE] key to enable it.

Assigning An IP Address
EAP Type (Extensible Authentication Protocol):
This dropdown menu lists the EAP types available on your system. The
items in this dropdown menu will vary depending on your network setup.
Keep in mind also that some authentication protocols require that you select
a ‘Certificate’. By selecting the Properties button, you will be able to
select a Certificate. “Certificate Assignment” on page 105 provides a
website that outlines how to create certificates for your network.
6. Saving and exiting the radio setup.
Once you have completed your configuration, press [ENTER] or tap
on OK.
The connection you created will be listed in the Wireless Information tab as a
preferred network. The radio will search for the SSID and will compare the WEP
and authentication information you specified. If there is a match between your 8525
G2/8530 G2 settings and the access point settings, the 8525 G2/8530 G2 will
communicate on the network through the access point.
2.8.1 Assigning An IP Address
If your network is not using a DHCP server, you will need to assign an IP address.
Figure 2.7 Configuring An IP Address

2.10.2.1 SCU Security Capabilities
The SCU provides integrated security to protect transmitted data as well as the
vehicle-mount and wireless WAN infrastructure that transmit and receive data.
A foundational element of the IEEE 802.11i WLAN security standard is IEEE
802.1X and a critical application on a mobile device is an 802.1X supplicant. This
supplicant provides an interface between the radio and the operating system and
supports the authentication and encryption elements required for 802.11i, also
known as Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2), as well as predecessors such as WPA
and WEP. Summit software includes an integrated supplicant that supports a broad
range of security capabilities, including:
• 802.1X authentication using pre-shared keys or an EAP type, required for
WPA2 and WPA.
• Data encryption and decryption using WPA2 AES, WPA TKIP or WEP.

SCU Security Capabilities
Common EAP types include:
• EAP-TLS: Uses the same technology as a follow-on to Secure Socket
Layer (SSL). It provides strong security, but relies on client certificates for
user authentication.
• PEAP: Provides secure user authentication by using a TLS tunnel to
encrypt EAP traffic. Two different inner methods are used with PEAP:
• EAP-MSCHAPV2, resulting in PEAP-MSCHAP: This is appropriate
for use against Windows Active Directory and domains.
• EAP-GTC, resulting in PEAP-GTC: This is for authentication with onetime passwords (OTPs) against OTP databases such as SecureID.
• LEAP: Is an authentication method for use with Cisco WLAN access
points. LEAP does not require the use of server or client certificates. LEAP
supports Windows Active Directory and domains but requires the use of
strong passwords to avoid vulnerability to offline dictionary attacks.
• EAP-FAST: Is a successor to LEAP and does not require strong passwords
to protect against offline dictionary attacks. Like LEAP, EAP-FAST does
not require the use of server or client certificates and supports Windows
Active Directory and domains.
Note:
PEAP and EAP-TLS require the use of Windows facilities for the configuration of digital certificates.
SCU EAP Types
The following EAP types are supported by the integrated supplicant and can be
configured in SCU: PEAP-MSCHAP, PEAP-GTC, LEAP and EAP-FAST. With
each of these four types, if authentication credentials are not stored in the config,
you will be prompted to enter credentials the first time the radio attempts to
associate to an access point that supports 802.1X (EAP).
Consider the following when configuring one of the EAP types:
• PEAP-GTC: SCU supports static (login) passwords only.
• LEAP: Strong passwords are recommended.
• EAP-FAST: SCU supports automatic, not manual, PAC provisioning.
EAP-TLS will work with a Summit DC-802.11_SC_CF (Model #RA2041) radio
module when Windows Zero Config (WZC) rather than the SCU is used to configure
the type. With WZC, the native Windows supplicant instead of the SCU integrated
supplicant is used.

EAP Credentials
2.10.2.2 EAP Credentials
Keep the following in mind when defining security settings:
• If the credentials specified in the config are incorrect and that config is used,
the authentication fails without an error message; you will not be prompted
to enter correct credentials.
• If the credentials are not specified in the config, when the radio tries to associate using that config, you will be prompted to enter the credentials.
• When prompted, you can enter valid credentials, enter invalid credentials,
or cancel the operation.
• If you enter valid credentials and tap OK, the radio will associate and
authenticate.
• If you enter invalid credentials and tap on OK, the radio will associate
but will not authenticate; you will be prompted again to enter credentials.
• If you tap on Cancel or clear the credentials fields and tap on OK, the
radio will not attempt to associate with that config until you perform
one of the following actions (while the config is the active config):
• Cause the vehicle-mount to go through a power cycle or suspend/resume.
• Disable and enable the radio, or tap the Reconnect button on the
Diags windows.
• Modify the config, and tap on Commit.
Alternatively, you can choose another config as the active config and then switch
back to the config for which EAP authentication was cancelled.
2.10.2.3 ThirdPartyConfig
If you choose to configure ThirdPartyConfig, the SCU will work with the operating
system’s Windows Zero Config (WZC) to configure radio and security settings for
the CF radio installed in the unit.
Choosing this config means that WZC must be used to define the following radio
and security options: SSID, Auth Type, EAP Type and Encryption.The SCU settings
for ThirdPartyConfig include: Client Name, Power Save, Tx Power, Bit Rate and
Radio Mode. These SCU settings along with SCU global settings and the WZC
settings will be applied to the radio module.

3.2 The Internal Backup Battery
The 8525 G2/8530 G2 vehicle-mount is equipped with an internal battery that will
provide backup power to the unit for up to fifteen minutes of normal operation.
After 15 minutes, the unit will shut off to preserve the contents of RAM.
The backup battery is not user accessible. It must be replaced by authorized Psion
Teklogix personnel.
3.3 The Keyboard
The 8525 G2/8530 G2 offers three keyboard layouts – Qwerty, ABC and Azerty.
The 8530 G2 is equipped with an external keyboard offering the same layouts as the
8525 G2 vehicle-mount.
Most of the keys on these keyboards operate much like a desktop computer. If a key
or key function is not consistent with the PC keyboard, the differences are noted.
Note:
On the 8530 G2, a soft keyboard that is an exact replica of the external
keyboard is available. Refer to “Input Panel” on page 134 for details.
3.3.1 Modifier Keys
The [SHIFT], [CTRL], [ALT], [BLUE] ad [ORANGE] keys are modifier keys.
Pressing a modifier key changes the function of the next key pressed. For example, a
square bracket is printed in orange print above the [4] key. Pressing the [ORANGE]
key followed by the [4] key displays a square bracket rather than the number 4.
The [SHIFT], [CTRL] and [ALT] keys operate much like a desktop keyboard except

Activating Modifier Keys
3.3.1.1
Activating Modifier Keys
When a modifier key is pressed once, it is displayed in lowercase letters in the
taskbar at the bottom of the 8525 G2/8530 G2 screen. For example, if the [CTRL]
key is pressed, ctrl key is displayed at the bottom of the unit screen. Once another key
is pressed, the modifier key becomes inactive and disappears from the taskbar.
3.3.1.2
Locking Modifier Keys
When a modifier key is pressed twice, it is ‘locked’ on. A ‘locked’ modifier key is
displayed in uppercase letters in the taskbar. For example, pressing the [BLUE] key
twice locks it on – it is displayed as BLUE KEY in the taskbar at the bottom of the
computer screen.
The locked modifier key will remain active until it is pressed a third time to unlock
or turn it off. Once a modifier key is unlocked (pressed a third time), the uppercase
representation at the bottom of the screen is no longer displayed.
Note:
The locking function of modifier keys can be disabled so that pressing a
modifier key once will lock the key ‘on’. If you disable the ‘One Shot’
function of these keys, pressing a modifier key once will lock it ‘on’.
Pressing the same key a second time will unlock or turn it ‘off’. Refer to
“Keyboard One Shots” on page 89 for details.

Chapter 3: Getting To Know The 8525/30 G2
Scanning Techniques
The 8525 G2/8530 G2 supports a variety of one dimensional (1D) and two
dimensional (2D) laser scanners.
“Scanning Techniques” outlines the mechanics of a successful scan. In addition,
review “Scan LED Indicators” on page 52 to better understand how to interpret
whether or not a bar code has been successfully scanned. Finally, “Troubleshooting”
on page 53 provides some helpful suggestions should the scan fail.
3.7.1 Scanning Techniques
Note:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
External scanners can be connected to the 8525 G2/8530 G2 tether, serial
or USB device port.
Hold the scanner at an angle. Do not hold it perpendicular to the bar code.
Do not hold the scanner directly over the bar code. In this position,
light can reflect back into the scanner’s exit window and prevent a
successful decode.
Scan the entire bar code. If you are using a 1D or 2D scanner, make certain
that the scan beam crosses every bar and space on the bar code, including
the margins on either end of the symbol.
If you are using a 2D imaging scanner, make certain the red, oval-shaped
framing mark is centered within the bar code you want to scan.
When using imaging scanners, do not move the scanner while decoding the
bar code. Movement blurs the image.
Hold the scanner farther away for larger bar codes.
Hold the scanner closer for bar codes with bars that are close together.
3.7.2 Scan LED Indicators
The 8525 G2/8530 G2 scanner LED (the upper-right LED) indicates whether or
not your scan is successful. Keep in mind that scan indicators only function when
using a non-decoded, 1D laser scanner connected to the tether port. All other
external scanners have integrated LED indicators that are not controlled by the
8525 G2/8530 G2.
The LED behaves as follows:
• Scan In Progress: scan LED displays solid red colour.
• Successful Scan: scan LED displays solid green colour and turns off when
the scan is ended.
• Unsuccessful scan: scan LED flashes red.
52
Psion Teklogix 8525 G2/8530 G2 Vehicle-Mount Computer User Manual
Chapter 3: Getting To Know The 8525/30 G2
Troubleshooting
A bar code icon appears on the screen during a scan. While the scanner beam is
active, the onscreen message states – SCANNING. If the scan is successful, the bar
code data is displayed on the screen until the scan trigger is released.
3.7.3 Troubleshooting
If the scanner is not working, investigate the following:
• Is the 8525 G2/8530 G2 on?
• Check that the bar code symbology being scanned is enabled for the 8525
G2/8530 G2 you are using. Check any other parameters that affect the scanning procedure or the bar code.
• Check the bar code to make sure it is not damaged. Try scanning a different
bar code to verify that the problem is not with the bar code.
• Check that the bar code is within the proper range.
• Does the vehicle-mount display the warning without scanning? This suggests a hardware problem in the 8525 G2/8530 G2.
• Is the laser beam scanning across the bar code?
• Once the scan beam has stopped, check the scanner window for
dirt or fogging.
3.7.4 Operating One Dimensional (1D) Laser Scanners
•
Turn the 8525 G2/8530 G2 on. Wait until the unit has booted
up completely.
Important:
•
If an aiming dot is available on the scanner, the dot will be
enabled for a configurable time period (including off), after
which normal scanning begins. Refer to “Dot Time (msec)” on
page 139 for details.
Double-clicking the trigger will override the aiming delay and
initiate an immediate scan. Note that the aiming dot is standard
on long-range and high visibility internal scanners.
Aim at the bar code and press the trigger. A scan beam and a warning
indicator appear until a successful decode is achieved or six seconds
have elapsed.

3.8 Connecting & Disconnecting Tethered Peripherals
Tethered peripherals such as imagers, RFID readers, scanners and/or printers
connect to the vehicle-mount computer with a quick release, circular connector.
For most peripherals, when they are connected to the vehicle-mount, the
8525 G2/8530 G2 detects them and loads the necessary drivers. Keep in mind
however that some peripherals may require their own specific drivers to be loaded
manually. An icon in the taskbar at the bottom of the screen provides a visual
representation of the peripheral and indicates that it is ready for operation.
To attach the peripheral to the round, tether port on the side of the
8525 G2/8530 G2:
• Insert the barrel of the plug into the tether port and rotate slowly until it
clicks into place. The red dot on the port and on the connector should
be aligned.

3.11 General Maintenance
3.11.1 Caring For The Touchscreen
The top of the touchscreen is a thin, flexible polyester plastic sheet with a conductive
coating on the inside. The polyester can be permanently damaged by harsh chemicals
and is susceptible to abrasions and scratches. Using sharp objects on the touchscreen
can scratch or cut the plastic, or crack the internal conductive coating.
If the touchscreen is used in harsh environments, consider applying a disposable
screen protector (PN 1008009). These covers reduce the clarity of the display
slightly but will dramatically extend the useful life of the touchscreen. When they
become scratched and abraded, they are easily removed and replaced.
The chemicals listed below must not come into contact with the touchscreen:
• mustard, ketchup,
• sodium hydroxide,
• concentrated caustic solutions,

Chapter 4: Working With Windows CE 5.0
Navigating In Windows CE And Applications
4.1 Navigating In Windows CE And Applications
Graphic user interfaces like Windows CE for portable devices and desktop
Windows (2000, XP, etc.) utilize ‘point and click’ navigation. An equivalent
keyboard shortcut is also available for every ‘point and click’ action.
Windows CE supports the same ‘point and click’ user interface and keyboard
shortcuts as desktop Windows with one difference – the ‘point and click’ action is
accomplished using a touchscreen rather than a mouse. Actions can be performed
using any combination of keyboard shortcuts or touchscreen tapping.
4.1.1 Navigating Using A Touchscreen And Stylus
Note:
If the touchscreen is not registering your screen taps accurately, it may
need recalibration. Refer to “Calibrating The Touchscreen” on page 45.
Each 8525 G2/8530 G2s is equipped with a stylus – a pointing tool that looks like a
pen – that is used to select objects on the touchscreen.
Note:
To prevent damage to the touchscreen, use only the stylus (pen) supplied
with your 8525 G2/8530 G2.
To open a file, launch an applet or open a folder:
• Double-tap the stylus on the appropriate icon.
To navigate through a dialog box – for example, display the information in a tab,
choose a radio button, check a checkbox and so on:
• Tap the stylus on a tab, radio button, checkbox and so on.
4.1.2 Navigating Using The Keyboard
If your touchscreen has been disabled, you can use the keyboard rather than a stylus
to choose icons and navigate dialog boxes, display the desktop, and so on. If your
unit has already been fully configured and your application is launched at startup,
you’ll have little need for keyboard navigation.

This option allows your 8525 G2/8530 G2 to communicate with a remote desktop
PC. “Remote Desktop Connection” on page 79 provides a website with step-by-step
instructions.
4.3.2 The Taskbar
The 8525 G2/8530 G2 is equipped with a taskbar at the bottom of the screen. It
displays icons through which you can view the internal battery capacity, the radio
signal quality of your unit, and so on. If the vehicle-mount is attached to a peripheral
device, an associated icon is displayed. In addition, the taskbar displays the
application(s) currently running on your unit and the security level assigned to your
8525 G2/8530 G2.
The taskbar also displays active modifier keys – [SHIFT], [ALT], [CTRL], [BLUE]
and [ORANGE]. Keys that have been locked “on” are displayed in uppercase
letters. For example, if you press the [CTRL] key twice to lock it “on”, it is
displayed as CTRL KEY in the taskbar.
4.3.2.1

A taskbar icon allows you to display a tooltip – a short description of the status of
the icon, or to display the Control Panel dialog box associated with the icon.
• To display a tooltip, tap and hold the stylus on an icon.
• To display the Control Panel dialog box associated with an icon, double-tap
on the icon.

The options in this tab allows you to determine how modifier keys on your 8525
G2/8530 G2 behave. For each modifier key–[ALT], [SHIFT], [CTRL], [ORANGE]
and [BLUE]–you have the following options in the drop-down menu: Lock, OneShot, and OneShot/Lock.
Note:
Keep in mind that checking the taskbar lets you know whether or not
these keys are locked on. For example, if the [ORANGE] key is locked
‘on’, the taskbar at the bottom of the screen displays it in uppercase characters – ORANGE KEY. If this key is displayed in lowercase characters in the
taskbar, you’ll know that the orange key is not locked. It will become inactive following a key press.
Important:
Once you’ve assigned a One Shot mode to a modifier key, you
need to tap on the OK button at the top of the tab to activate
your selection.
Lock
If you choose Lock from the drop-down menu, pressing a modifier key once locks it
‘on’ until you press the modifier key a second time to unlock or turn it off.
OneShot
If you choose OneShot, the modifier key remains active only until the next key is pressed.
OneShot/Lock
OneShot/Lock allows you to combine these functions. When you choose this
option and you press the modifier key once, it remains active only until the next key
is pressed.
If you press the modifier key twice, it is locked ‘on’, remaining active until the
modifier key is pressed a third time to turn it ‘off’.

Scancode Remapping
A scancode is a number that is associated with a physical key on a keyboard. Every
key has a unique scancode that is mapped to a virtual key, a function or a macro.
Scancode Remapping allows you to change the functionality of any key on the

keyboard. A key can be remapped to send a virtual key (e.g. VK_F represents the
‘F’ key; VK_RETURN represents the [ENTER/ON] key, etc.), perform a function
(e.g. turn the scanner on, change volume/contrast, etc.) or run a macro.
There are three different tables of scancode mappings: the Normal table, the Blue
table and the Orange table. The Normal table defines unmodified key presses; the
Blue table defines key presses that occur when the [BLUE] modifier is on; the
Orange table defines key presses that occur when the [ORANGE] modifier is on.
The default mappings of these scancodes can be overwritten for each of these three
tables using the Scancode Remapping tab accessed from the Keyboard Properties
dialog box.
The first column in the Scancode Remapping tab displays the Scancodes in
hexidecimal. If the scancode is remapped to a virtual key, that virtual key is
displayed in the next column labelled ‘V-Key’. A virtual key that is ‘Shifted’ or
‘Unshifted’ is displayed in the third column labelled ‘Function’.
If the scancode is remapped to a function or a macro, the first and second columns
remain blank while the third column contains the function name or macro key
number (e.g., Macro 2).
Adding A Remap
To add a new remapping:
• Tap the stylus on the Add button at the bottom of the dialog box.

The radio buttons along the side of the dialog box allow you to define to what the
scan code will be remapped: Virtual Key, Function or Macro.
When Virtual Key is selected, you can choose to force [SHIFT] to be on or off
when the virtual key is sent. If No Force is selected, the shift state is dependent on
whether the shift state is on or off at the time the virtual key is sent.
When Function is selected, a list of valid functions appears in the dialog box.
When Macro is selected, the macro keys available on your unit are listed in the
dialog box.
• Choose Virtual Key, Function or Macro.

Suspend
When the 8525 G2/8530 G2 is idle – not receiving any user input (a key touch, a
scan, and so on) or system activity (serial data, an activity initiated by an
application, and so on), the value chosen in the Suspend Timeout dropdown menu
determines when the unit will go to suspend state (appear to be off).
When the time in the Suspend Timeout field elapses without any activity, the unit
enters Suspend state. In Suspend state, the 8525 G2/8530 G2 CPU enters a sleep
state, and the radio is shut off. The state of the device (RAM contents) is preserved.
Pressing [ENTER] wakes the system from suspend state. When the 8525 G2/8530

Notes: It is possible to map the same source to different owners—for example,
[F1] can be mapped to both the Imager and Non-Decoded Scanner. If so,
both devices/operations will occur simultaneously. This is not recommended in most cases, especially with devices that draw a great deal of
current, such as Imagers.
It is also possible to map different sources to the same owner.

Trigger Type
You can enable either an Up/Down or Double Click response to a trigger press.
Normally, when a trigger (keyboard key, etc.) is pressed and released, a “trigger
down” event is sent to the “owner”–that is, the application receiving the trigger
press information followed by a “trigger up”. If Double Click is chosen in this menu,
when the trigger is pressed, released, and then pressed again, a “double-click” event
will have occurred. If a mapping with the type Up/down has also been configured
for the same source, it will only receive the first set of trigger events.

Power Up Channel
When this parameter is enabled, the 8525 G2/8530 G2 begins communicating on
the channel specified in the Channel Number parameter when the unit is powered
up. This setting may prevent the migration of 8525 G2/8530 G2s to the same
channel due to uneven coverage in some sites.
If this parameter is disabled (unchecked), the unit will continue communicating on
the same channel that it was on before it was powered off.
Channel Enable List
•
Tap on the Channel Enable List button to display a dialog box listing
available channels.
This dialog box is completed by default with all channels that have frequencies
configured. A checkmark indicates that a channel is enabled. An unchecked check
box indicates that the channel is disabled. The maximum number of channels
supported by the RA1001 Narrow Band radio is 20.
Enabling a channel allows the channel to be set to an operating channel (Channel
Number) and makes it available for channel searching. For example, if Channel 1 is
the operating channel and all other channels are enabled, the 8525 G2/8530 G2 can
roam through all 20 channels.
Channel Switch Speed
This parameter changes the threshold the 8525 G2/8530 G2 uses to determine when
communication quality with a base station is unacceptable. When this threshold is
exceeded, the unit starts channel searching for a new base station.
Setting this parameter to Slow means a higher threshold – the 8525 G2/8530 G2 is
more tolerant of poor communication quality. When the channel quality of the
vehicle-mount radio drops below 46%, the unit monitors the channel quality for 15

timeout periods before searching for a new channel. If Channel Switch Speed is set
to Fast, the current channel is only monitored for up to 2 time-out periods before
channel switching begins.
Important:
“Fast” switch speed is most effective where coverage areas are
largely overlapping. If the coverage areas barely overlap, have
dead spots, or if the 8525 G2/8530 G2 frequently operates on the
fringe of coverage, this parameter should be set to “Slow”.
Channel Selection
Enabling Manual Select allows you to set the channel search order the
8525 G2/8530 G2 will use if communication quality drops and channel
switching is required. If this parameter is enabled, the 8525 G2/8530 G2 uses
the channel switching lists specified in the Manual Switch Table. If this parameter is
disabled (unchecked), the vehicle-mount uses a standard algorithm to decide which
channel it should switch to in the event of poor channel quality.
Warning:
It is not recommended that the “Manual Select” parameter be used
without a clear understanding of how to order the channel
sequences for optimum performance.

assigned for each unit.
Note:
This parameter is set to ‘0’ (an out-of-range value) by default to block

Sync Delay
Warning:
This parameter should not be changed from its factory setting
without a clear understanding of radio protocol timing.
The Sync Delay parameter specifies the delay between the base station transmission
and the first response window, measured in milliseconds. The value assigned to this
parameter must be compatible with other terminals and base stations in the system.
The allowable range for this parameter is between 1 and 40.
Window Delay
Important:
The value assigned to this parameter should not be changed from
the factory setting without a clear understanding of the timing of
the radio protocol.
This parameter specifies the amount of time (in milliseconds) the 8525 G2/8530 G2
should add to each response window in order to accommodate the receive/transmit
switching characteristics of the radio. The value assigned must be compatible with
other units and base stations in the system. The default setting of 19 is based on the
requirements of a 2 level modulation narrow band radio, operating at 9600 baud.
Poll Timeout
This parameter (in units of 16.6 ms) sets the time-out value used for automatic
channel switching. “Poll Timeout” is the time during which the 8525 G2/8530 G2
should detect at least one poll from a base station. As each “Poll Timeout” passes
without a successful poll from the base station, the 8525 G2/8530 G2 channel
quality decreases. If the channel quality falls to below 46%, the terminal begins
searching for a new channel.
A value from 1 to 200 can be assigned to this parameter.

Late TX Limit
The value entered for this parameter (measured in milliseconds) sets the maximum
allowable deviation time from the start of a response window during which an 8525
G2/8530 G2 can make a transmission. After this threshold, the transmission will not
be attempted and the 8525 G2/8530 G2 will try again at the next opportunity. For
example, suppose this parameter is set to 5. From the beginning of the response
window, the 8525 G2/8530 G2 can be up to 5 milliseconds late sending a
transmission. Beyond this threshold, the transmission is not attempted. The
vehicle-mount waits for the next opportunity.

Idle Poll Limit
Note:
The “Idle Poll Limit” parameter is only used when “Enable Power
Saving” is enabled.
This parameter determines how many transmit opportunities – base station polls
with available response windows – must be consecutively skipped before the 8525
G2/8530 G2 places the radio into power-down mode for power saving. The
allowable range for this parameter is from 1 to 200. The default value is 10.
Lower values cause the vehicle-mount to enter power saving mode quickly,
extending battery life but reducing 8525 G2/8530 G2 responsiveness. Higher values
increase responsiveness but decrease battery life.

Bluetooth is a global standard for wireless connectivity for digital devices and is
intended for Personal Area Networks (PAN). The technology is based on a
short-range radio link that operates in the ISM band at 2.4 GHz. When two
Bluetooth-equipped devices come within a 2 meter range of each other, they can
establish a connection. Because Bluetooth utilizes a radio-based link, it does not
require a line-of-sight connection in order to communicate.

COM as the port name. BSP is the latest Microsoft Bluetooth stack standard, but
older applications assume serial ports are COM. When using COM as the port name,
the Bluetooth manager will try to find and use a free port between COM7 and
COM9. When using BSP as the port name, BSP2 to BSP9 are available for use. The
port is available as soon as it is activated.
Note:

To change these after activation, deactivate the service first, then change the options.
Once a service is activated, all the information regarding the service, including the
RFCOMM channel number, is saved in the registry. (Some remote devices may
change their RFCOMM channel numbers when they reboot, so your saved setting
may not work when the remote device is rebooted. In that case, you must deactivate
the service and reactivate it to detect the current RFCOMM channel.)

The Server Tab
The Bluetooth connection is initiated from your 8525 G2/8530 G2 to the remote
device – therefore the 8525 G2/8530 G2 is called the ‘client’ and the remote is
called the ‘server’. The Servers tab displays the server profiles that can be activated
in your 8525 G2/8530 G2. There is currently one server profile available: Serial.
• Tap on the checkbox to activate the server, and it will display the
associated port name beside the server name.

for information about these scanners.
5.5.13.2 Decoded Scanners
While non-decoded scanners are configured through the Scanner Properties dialog
box (refer to “Non-Decoded Scanners” on page 138 for details), decoded scanners
must be configured by scanning special configuration bar codes. In these cases, the
scanner manufacturer provides programming manuals for configuration purposes.

5.5.13.4 Non-Decoded Options
Dot Time (msec)
The value selected for Dot Time determines (in milliseconds) how long the targeting
dot remains on before the scanner switches to a normal scan sweep. Choosing this
option displays a window in which you can enter a value.
A value of 0 (zero) disables the target dot.
Short Code
When enabled (set to on), this parameter allows scanning of short I 2 of 5 bar codes
(2 characters). When disabled, these short bar codes are rejected.
Enabling Short Code may reduce the robustness of the decoding since the
8525 G2/8530 G2 must decode more potential bar codes; it is therefore not
recommended for general-purpose bar codes with 4 or more characters.
Verify
The value entered for this parameter determines the number of correct additional
decodes required after the initial decode before a bar code is accepted. Higher values
significantly increase the time it takes to decode a bar code but also improve the
reliability of the decoded bar code.

Chapter 5: Configuration
Scanner Properties Setup
Security
This parameter controls the tolerance for decoding edge-to-edge bar codes
(Code 93, Code 128, UPC/EAN). Lower values have a lower tolerance for
misreads, but they also increase the time it takes to decode the bar code. The default
value of 30 is generally a good compromise setting.
5.5.13.5 Code 39 Settings
Enabled
Set this parameter to on to enable Code 39 or ‘off’ to disable it.
Full Ascii
If this parameter is enabled (set to on), the characters +, %, and / are used as escape
characters. The combination of an escape character and the next character
is converted to an equivalent ASCII character.
Include Check
If this parameter is enabled (set to on), the check digit is included with the decoded
bar code data.
AIAG Strip
If this parameter is enabled (set to on), the AIAG data identifier is removed from
each decoded Code 39 label. The data identifier occurs in the first position next to
the Code 39 start character. It can be a single alphabetic character or a series of
numeric digits followed by an alphabetic character. This identifier defines the
general category or specific use of the data contained in the rest of the bar code.
Note: If your unit is operating with the Psion Teklogix TESS application, this
parameter should not be used in conjunction with the TESS AIAG feature.
This is because the 8525 G2/8530 G2 vehicle-mount performs the strip
function before it processes the data through the AIAG feature; if the prefix is stripped, the data is not identified as AIAG.
Error Accept
If the Err Accept and AIAG Strip parameters are enabled (set to on), all label data
without an AIAG identifier character is accepted. If the Err Accept parameter is
disabled and the “AIAG Strip” parameter is enabled (set to on), the label data
is not accepted.

5.5.13.18 Bar Code Options Tab
This tab allows you to tailor the double-click parameters and the display options
associated with your scanner.
Double Click
Click Time (msec)
This parameter controls the maximum gap time (in milliseconds) for a
double-click.
If the time between the first and second clicks of the scanner trigger is within this
time, it is considered a double-click. The allowable range is 0 to 1000. A value of
zero disables this feature.
A double-click produces different results depending on whether or not a value is
assigned in the ‘Click Data’ parameter. When a value is not assigned for the ‘Click
Data’, double-clicking the scanner trigger overrides the target dot delay set in the
‘Dot Time’ parameter and initiates a normal scan sweep. If a value is assigned for
the ‘Click Data’ parameter, double-clicking the scanner trigger inserts the ‘Click
Data’ value rather than initiating a scan.
Click Data
This parameter determines which character is sent to the application installed in
your 8525 G2/8530 G2 following a double-click. A dialog box appears, asking that
you press the key you want to insert. The ASCII/Unicode key value of the keypress
is displayed.
Pressing the [ESC] key in this dialog box resets the data to zero.

Display
Scan Result
When this parameter is enabled, the type of bar code and the result of the scan
appear on the screen. Note that this information is only displayed after a successful
decode and is visible only while the scanner trigger is pressed. When the trigger is
released, this information is cleared from the screen.
Scan Indicator
When this parameter is enabled, the laser warning logo appears on the display
whenever the scanner is activated.
Scan Result Time (sec)
The value assigned to the ‘Scan Result Time (sec)’ parameter determines how long
the scan results of a successful scan are displayed on the screen. Time is measured in
seconds, and a value of ‘0’ (zero) disables the parameter. When you choose this
option, a dialog box appears where you can enter a value.
Note:
To remove the scan result from the screen before the “Result Time”
has expired, point the scanner away from the bar code and press
the trigger.
Good Scan Beep And Bad Scan Beep
These parameters determine whether or not the vehicle-mount emits an audible
scanner ‘beep’ when a good (successful) scan or a bad (unsuccessful) scan is
performed. Set these parameters to either on to enable the beeper or off to disable it.
Soft Scan Timeout
This parameter is used by the SDK ‘Scan’ function (soft-scan: starting a scan
session via the SDK function rather than through a physical trigger press). The value
assigned to this parameter determines the soft-scan timeout from 1 to 10 sec.
(default is 3 sec.).
Scan Log File
If this parameter is enabled, the input barcode and the modified/translated output bar
code are logged in the file \Flash Disk\ScanLog.txt. Keep in mind that if this
parameter is enabled, there is a slight performance effect when performing multiple
scans because the log file is written to persistent storage.

6.1 External Bar Code Readers
6.1.1 PowerScan™ Standard, LR and XLR Bar Code Scanners
The 8525 G2/8530 G2 supports Psion Teklogix’ PowerScan™ industrial bar code
scanner with standard, long range and extra long range options.
To connect this scanner to the 8525 G2/8530 G2, attach the device to the tether port.
Review your “PowerScan Programing Guide (PSC)” before you begin.
6.1.2 Entering Data With The Bar Code Reader
Note:
For helpful scanning tips, refer to “Scanning Techniques” on page 52.
When a label is scanned successfully, the 8525 G2/8530 G2 will beep if configured
appropriately and the scan LED will flash. Occasionally, the bar code labels are
poorly printed or damaged and cannot be read properly. In this case, use the
keyboard to enter data from the label.
6.2 Bluetooth Peripherals
All 8525 G2/8530 G2 are equipped with Bluetooth radios, making it is possible to
communicate with a variety of Bluetooth peripherals, including GSM/GPRS
handsets, scanners, printers, and so on. The range of the Bluetooth radio in the
8525 G2/8530 G2 is limited to between 2 and 5 meters.
Psion Teklogix provides built-in support for the Bluetooth peripherals listed below.
• GSM/GPRS tri-band universal handset
• Bluetooth printer
Keep in mind that Bluetooth and IEEE 802.11g radios both operate in the 2.4GHz
band. Although the 8525 G2/8530 G2 includes features to minimize interference,
performance of the system will not be optimal if you use both radios simultaneously.
Typically, when both radios operate in the 8525 G2/8530 G2 at the same time, they
cannot transmit simultaneously – this has a negative impact on overall system
throughput. To minimize the impact on the backbone 802.11g network, Psion
Teklogix recommends using Bluetooth peripherals that have low transaction rates
(such as printers and scanners).
Bluetooth peripherals are configured using the Bluetooth control panel applet. Refer
to “Bluetooth Setup” on page 118 for information about setting up your Bluetooth
devices for communication. In addition, review the manual shipped with your
Bluetooth device to determine the method used to associate with the 8525 G2/
8530 G2 host.

6.3.1 8525 G2/8530 G2 Mounting Recommendations
Warnings:
Before mounting an 8525 G2/8530 G2 in a vehicle, there are a
number of operator safety issues that require careful attention. An
improperly mounted 8525 G2/8530 G2 may result in one or more of
the following: operator injury, operator visibility obstruction, operator distraction and/or poor ease of egress for the operator. Psion
Teklogix strongly recommends that you seek professional mounting
advice from the vehicle manufacturer.
Cable routing within a vehicle cab also requires careful consideration, especially for separately tethered scanners and other devices
with loose cables. If you are unable to obtain suitable advice,
contact Psion Teklogix for assistance (see "Appendix A: Support
Services and Worldwide Offices" at the end of this document). Note
also that for better protection, the equipment should be mounted
inside the vehicle roll cage.
Use of the Powered Fork Lift Cradle while charging the fork truck
battery is prohibited.

You can install two vesa plates or one each of a vesa plate and a RAM ball end to the
RAM mount.
With the keyboard RAM ball end or vesa plate(s) installed on the RAM mount:
• Attach the RAM mount to a standard cradle (PN 1008442) using the hardware included with your kit.
• Attach the other end of the mount to almost any surface. The ball
design allows both ends of the RAM mount to be angled to suit the
operator's needs.
6.3.5 Wiring Guidelines
Before installing the cables between the computer and other devices, consider
the following:
• Ensure the vehicle body and underlying wiring is not damaged while drilling mounting holes.
• Protect cable runs from pinching, overheating and physical damage.
• Use grommets to protect cables that pass through metal.
• Use plastic straps and tie-downs to secure cables and connectors in their
desired location, away from areas where they may get snagged or pulled.
• Keep the cables away from heat sources, grease, battery acid, and other
potential hazards.

8525 G2/8530 G2 Installation In High Voltage Vehicles
•
•
Note:
Keep the cables away from control pedals and other moving parts that
may pull on the cables or interfere with the operation of the vehicle.
Leave enough slack on the cables so that the computer can be removed
easily for maintenance.
Make sure the cables run inside the roll cage of the vehicle.
6.3.6 8525 G2/8530 G2 Installation In High Voltage Vehicles
Warning:
Voltages exceeding 60VDC are considered hazardous. For
8525 G2/8530 G2 installations on vehicles with batteries above
this voltage, ensure the 8525 G2/8530 G2 power connector is
mounted in a secure location out of the vehicle operator’s reach.
Due to the hazardous voltages present on these vehicles, it is necessary to ensure
that the unit’s power supply cable connector is not accessible to the vehicle operator,
and is not exposed to water or other liquids. To accomplish this:
• Ensure the power connector is installed in a dry location on the vehicle,
away from the vehicle operator’s reach (perhaps under a vehicle dash or in a
sealed housing).
• Cover the power connector with waterproof heat shrink material.
• Wrap the connector securely with waterproof electrical tape in an area out
of the vehicle operators reach.
All other installation requirements outlined in this document should also be
followed for High Voltage vehicles to insure safe installation and operation of the
8525 G2/8530 G2 vehicle-mount.
6.3.7 8525 G2/8530 G2 Installation In Vehicles
Note:
The metal chassis of the 8525 G2/8530 G2 is equipped with a ground lug
(located on the underside of the 8525 G2/8530 G2, beside the cable management bar) to provide an additional ground to the vehicle, if desired.
The grounding strap must connect from the ground stud on the vehiclemount to a solid, reliable contact point on the main portion of the vehicle
chassis. It must not be connected to battery negative or a terminal block.
As with other vehicle cables, the routing of the ground strap should be carefully
considered to ensure it does not pose a hazard to the operator or the safe operation of
the vehicle. If necessary, secure the ground strap with cable ties or some other
mechanical means to prevent loops or loose lengths of wire from catching on
stationary items when the vehicle is in motion.

Wiring Vehicle Power To The 8525 G2/8530 G2
6.3.8 Wiring Vehicle Power To The 8525 G2/8530 G2
Warning:
The 8525 G2/8530 G2 accepts DC power sources between 10V
and 90VDC nominal.
Applying a voltage above 90VDC or reversing polarity may
result in permanent damage to the 8525 G2/8530 G2 and will void
the product warranty.
A 1.8 meter (6 ft.) extension power cable (PN 13985-302 std or –301 display off) is
supplied with your 8525 G2/8530 G2. This cable should be wired to a filtered, fused
(maximum 10A) accessory supply on the vehicle. The 8525 G2/8530 G2 draws no
more than 8A (less if the accessory supply is greater than 12V). Any additional
wiring (minimum 18 gauge), connectors or disconnects used should be rated for at
least 90 VDC, 10A.
When connecting PN 13985-301 (display-off version), ensure that the screen
blanking wires (clearly labelled) and the power wires (red/black leads) are reliably
secured away from each other, or are separated with reliably secured certified
insulation. Minimum 2.8mm distance, or 0.4mm distance through insulation is
required for the separation.
The red lead of the power cable attaches to the positive vehicle supply. The black
lead connects to the negative supply – this should be connected to a proper terminal
block and not to the vehicle body. The 8525 G2/8530 G2 is fully isolated and can be
used with both negative and positive chassis vehicles.
You may have the option of connecting power before or after the ‘key’ switch.
It is preferable to wire the 8525 G2/8530 G2 after the key switch – that is, the
8525 G2/8530 G2 cannot be switched on without turning the vehicle key on.
However, if the operator switches the key off repeatedly for long periods during a
shift, it may make more sense to wire the 8525 G2/8530 G2 before the switch.
Keep in mind that the 8525 G2/8530 G2 will continue to operate with or without
vehicle power as long as its back up battery has sufficient charge.
If an unfused power source must be used, a fuse assembly (PN 19440) must be
added to the extension power cable (the fuse and instructions are supplied with the
cable). Use only a 10A slow blow UL approved fuse in the fuse assembly. The fuse
assembly must be located as close as practical to the DC supply, and shall connect to
the positive side of the DC supply.
