Introduction
Overview
Note:
This user guide is directed toward the LXE® model MX5X with a blue keypad overlay
and a blue I-SAFE label under the speaker at the front of the device. This model is
referred to as the MX5-IS.
This user guide provides safety instructions, warnings, and regulatory compliance information
important for the safe operation and use of the LXE® model MX5 Intrinsically Safe (MX5-IS)
Hand Held Computer within Hazardous Locations. The MX5-IS is an MX5X that has been

Quick Start
Note:
When your MX5-IS is pre-configured, the wireless client, flash card and scanner are
programmed by LXE to your specifications. The sequence of steps in Quick Start must
also be completed when the device returns from a Cold Reset and when a new OS
version is loaded. The wireless client, flash card, virtual keyboard and scanner
parameters may also need to be reset after a cold reset.
This section's instructions are based on the assumption that your new mobile device is preconfigured and requires only accessory installation (e.g. hand strap) and a power source. This
guide takes you through an introduction to and operation of the LXE MX5-IS. LXE recommends
that installation or removal of accessories be performed on a clean, well-lit surface. When
necessary, protect the work surface, MX5-IS, and components from electrostatic discharge.
In general, the sequence of events is:

Important Battery Information
Important: If the main battery has been out of the MX5-IS for an extended period of time or
becomes fully discharged or dead, a fully charged backup battery will last for up
to 24 hours. If this happens, the device will cold reset the next time power is
applied from either AC power or a charged main battery. A cold reset will cause
loss of data and custom programs. Always store unused devices with a fully
charged main battery pack installed. The MX5-IS requires periodic connection to
an external power source to maintain an optimum backup battery charged status.
• Until the main battery and backup battery are completely depleted, the MX5-IS 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-IS to conserve the main
battery and recharge the backup battery.
• When a new battery is installed in the MX5-IS for the first time (or when the backup
battery is completely depleted), the Time and Date reverts to it’s default values.
Li-Ion Battery
When disposing of the MX5-IS main battery, the following precautions should be observed: The
battery should be disposed of properly. The battery should not be disassembled or crushed. The
battery should not be heated above 212°F (100°C) or incinerated.

Install Pistol Grip Handle (Optional)
Do not install the pistol grip handle when the MX5-IS is in a Hazardous Location.
The MX5-IS can be purchased with a customer-installable pistol grip handle. The handle enables
the user of the MX5-IS to hold the device while pointing and activating the scanner with one
hand. Pressing the trigger activates the laser 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 function of the Scan key.
The handle is built of a durable and flexible plastic that will not detach from the MX5-IS 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 Battery Pack.
Either the trigger handle is attached to the MX5-IS or the handstrap is attached, not both.

Tapping 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, abrasive 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
back of the MX5-IS when the stylus is not in use.
In the same manner as using a mouse to left-click icons on a desktop/laptop computer screen,
using the stylus to tap icons on the MX5-IS display 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 a COM port.
• A mouse right-click is performed by holding the stylus down on the touch screen. A circle
of dots appear and then the right-click operation can be performed.
Note:
A ‘right mouse click’ function must be programmed by the customer to accept a constant
stream of left mouse click messages. An application can choose to interpret this stream of
messages as a right mouse click. LXE does not support non-LXE application
programming.
An extra or replacement stylus can be ordered from LXE. See the section titled Accessories for the
stylus part number.

A checkmark indicates applications currently active or available for Launching by the user.
Previous versions used the program icon to indicate the same function. When Keyboard is
selected, the MX5-IS default input method (Input Panel, Transcriber, or custom input method) is
activated.
Using a Stylus Tap
When the mobile device enters end-user mode, a Switchpad icon (it looks like three tiny windows
one above the other) is visible at the far right in the taskbar. The taskbar is always visible on top
of the application in focus. Note: If only one application is configured and the Input Panel is not
enabled, the Switchpad icon is not displayed.
When the user taps the Switchpad icon, a menu is displayed showing the applications available to
the end-user. They can tap an application name in the popup menu and the selected application is
brought to the foreground (in focus). The previous application continues to run in the background.
Stylus taps affect the application in focus only. When the user needs to use the Input Panel, they
tap the Keyboard option. Input Panel taps affect the application in focus only.
The figure shown above is an example and is shown only to aid in describing how the user can
switch between applications using a stylus tap. The switchpad lists user applications as well as the
Keyboard option.
Using the Switch Key Sequence
One switch key sequence (or hotkey) is defined by the administrator for the end-user to use when
switching between locked applications. This is known as the Activation key. The Activation key
is assigned by the Administrator using the Global Key parameter (the default Global Key is
Ctrl+Spc). When the switch key sequence is pressed on the keypad, the next application in the
AppLock configuration is moved to the foreground (in focus) and the previous application moves
to the background. The previous application continues to run in the background. End-user key
presses affect the application in focus only.
Note that the system administrator may have assigned a different key sequence to use when
switching applications.

Quick Start
Enter Data
You can enter data into the MX5-IS through several different methods. The Scanner aperture
provides barcode data entry, the RS-232 serial port or the IR port are used to input/output data,
and the keypad provides manual entry.
Mobile devices with a touch screen and Microsoft CE software can use a stylus to input data, the
COM ports and/or the keypad. An input panel (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-IS keypad but it may
take a few more keystrokes to accomplish a keyed task. Please refer to Appendix A - Key Maps for
instruction on the specific keypresses to access all keypad functions.
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 key that has the desired secondfunction key, the second-function key is the active key. The specific 2nd character is printed above
the corresponding key in either Orange or Blue.
Stylus Data Entry
Note:
This section is directed to the MX5-IS daily user. The assumption is that the mobile
device has been configured and the touch panel calibrated by the System Administrator
prior to releasing the MX5-IS for daily use. The touch screen should be calibrated before
initial use.
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 a serial port.
• 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.
Note:
Always use the point of the stylus for tapping or making strokes on the display. Never use
an actual pen, pencil, abrasive or sharp object to write on the touch screen.

External Power Supply for MX5-IS and Cradles
39
External Power Supply for MX5-IS and Cradles
Do not connect an external power supply to the MX5-IS in a Hazardous Location.
The MX5-IS DC adapter can be plugged into either of the D26 pin connectors on the bottom of
the MX5-IS.
The cradle power jack is located on the back of the cradle. The MX5-IS is to be used with a power
supply.
Figure 28 AC/DC 12V Power Supply
When the MX5-IS is receiving power through a cradle connected to external power, the cradle's
Status LED is illuminated.
Batteries
Note:
On first use the MX5-IS 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 MX5 Multi-Charger.
The MX5-IS 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-IS 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.
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 is always 'on' even when in
| Settings | Control Panel |
the Suspend state and draws battery power at all times. Tap the
Power 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-IS:
100% capacity
80% capacity
2800 mAh minimum
2240 mAh minimum
Deciding when to put a fully charged main battery pack in the MX5-IS 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.

Figure 29 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 MX5 Multi-charger
or MX5-IS 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
A fully charged 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. LXE recommends an MX5-IS in storage have a charged
main battery pack installed. Backup battery replacement is performed by LXE.
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-IS 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.
Warning: Never replace the main battery in a hazardous location.

Cradles
Important:
The cradles are not designed to secure an MX5-IS with a protective padded case. The vehicle
cradle is not designed to secure an MX5-IS with a trigger handle. The desktop cradles will secure
mobile device’s with handstraps or trigger handles.
MX5 docking cradles give the MX5-IS 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 MX5-IS
main battery. The MX5-IS can be either On or in Suspend mode while in the cradles.
LXE offers three desktop cradles and one vehicle cradle:
• Standard Desktop Cradle
• Enhanced Desktop Cradle
• Enhanced Desktop Cradle with Ethernet Port
• Vehicle Mount Cradle
Note:
LXE offers a device similar in appearance to MX5X devices – the LXE MX5 Pocket PC
2002 device. All MX5 cradles can be used by the MX5s. The Enhanced Desktop Cradle
with Ethernet Port, developed specifically for the MX5X and MX5-IS devices, cannot be
used by the MX5 Pocket 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 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.
Tethered Barcode Scanner Data Entry Using the MX5 Cradle
The MX5-IS supports an accessory barcode label reading device (a tethered scanner) connected to
the serial port on a vehicle cradle. Keypad data entries can be mixed with barcode data entries.
Any tethered scanner that decodes the barcode internally and outputs an RS-232 data stream may
be used. It sends the data to the mobile device in ASCII format.
The serial port parameters may need to be changed to match the parameters of the tethered
scanner.
When a tethered scanner is connected to the serial port on a vehicle cradle, the MX5-IS integrated
scanner must be configured as follows:
| Settings | Control Panel | Scanner | Main | either Port 1 or Port 2
Select COM1 External on one of the ports. The tethered scanner must be connected to the DB9
port on the vehicle cradle. The cradle must be powered by an alternate AC or DC power source to
enable tethered scanner use.
If the tethered scanner is powered by the mobile device, enable Power Output in
Control Panel | Handheld | Comms tab.
| Settings |
