ABOUT BLUETOOTH HID AND SPP MODES
The CHS support two kinds of Bluetooth connections (known as Bluetooth profiles): SPP (Serial
Port Profile) and HID (Human Interface Device), each with its advantages and disadvantages.
By default, the CHS is set to HID mode for Keyboard devices, which requires no
SocketScan 10 software installation.
For better performance, Socket highly recommends that you use SPP mode or iOS
mode, especially if scanning barcodes that contain a lot of data.

About Bluetooth Range
This product features a powerful Class 1 Bluetooth radio to provide the maximum
possible range. As with all wireless technologies, the connection range can vary widely
depending on many factors such as the brand and placement of the host device, the type
and size of physical obstacles and the presence and activity level of competing radio
transmissions.
In range testing of this product while connected to a variety of typical host devices with
Class 1 radios, functional connection distances from 18 to 100+ ft have been experienced
depending on the environment. The following conditions appear to reduce the
Bluetooth connection range:
 The presence of soft, absorbent materials such as paper, fiberglass insulation, foam
material in office cubical walls, carpeting and, to a lesser extent, even sheetrock and
wood construction materials.
 Human bodies or containers of liquid positioned between the host and the CHS.
 The presence and activity level of competing Bluetooth, 802.11 (Wi-Fi) or other
(proprietary) systems using the same 2.4 GHz frequency.
 Metal in a grid pattern, such as chain link fencing or chicken wire. This type of
material may block the Bluetooth (or Wi-Fi) signal completely.

SAFETY AND USAGE TIPS
Scanning Tips
Practice to determine the best scanning distance for your type of barcode.
Scanning Distance
 The best scanning distance varies depending on barcode size, symbology, label media, W-N
Ratio, and scan angle. Check the Decode Zone in Appendix D: Decode Zone to determine the
proper distance between the scanner and barcode.
 The larger the barcode, the further away you should position the scanner.
 The tighter the bars of the barcode, the closer you should position the scanner.
About Bluetooth and Health
Bluetooth wireless technology allows you to use short-range radio signals to connect a variety of
devices, such as barcode scanners, mobile phones, Pocket PCs, notebook computers, printers, LAN
access points, and many other devices at home or work. These radio signals replace the cables that
have traditionally connected these devices.
Bluetooth products have small radio transmitters and receivers. Output power is normally very
low, only 15.75 mW. This gives a working range of approximately 10 meters.
The maximum exposure levels from Bluetooth products are far below recommended safety
guidelines. At most, typical Bluetooth devices (15.75 mW) reach only one percent of the
prescribed safety levels.
Product Care
 Do not expose your product to liquid, moisture or extreme humidity.
 Do not expose your product to extreme high or low temperatures.
 Do not expose your product to lit candles, cigarettes, or cigars, or to open flames, etc.
 Do not drop, throw or try to bend the product, as rough treatment could damage it.
 Do not paint your product, as the paint could obstruct parts and prevent normal use.
 Do not attempt to disassemble your product: a broken warranty seal will void the warranty.
The product does not contain consumer serviceable components. Should your CHS need service,
contact Socket technical support at: http://support.socketmobile.com
 Treat your product with care. Keep in a clean and dust-free place.
 Changes or modifications of this product, not expressly approved by Socket, may void the
user’s authority to operate the equipment.
Antenna Care
Do not place a metallic shield around the Socket Bluetooth Cordless Hand Scanner since it will
reduce the radio transmission efficiency.
Efficient Use
For optimum performance, please make sure that there is no metal surrounding your Socket
Bluetooth Cordless Hand Scanner.
94
Driving
RF energy may affect some electronic systems in motor vehicles, such as car stereo, safety
equipment, etc. Check with your vehicle manufacturer to be sure that the Socket Bluetooth
Cordless Hand Scanner will not affect the vehicle’s electronics.
Aircraft
 Turn off your Socket Bluetooth Cordless Hand Scanner before boarding any aircraft.
 To prevent interference with communications systems, you must not use your Socket Bluetooth
Cordless Hand Scanner while the plane is in the air.
 Do not use it on the ground without permission from the crew.
Radio Frequency Exposure
Your Socket Bluetooth Cordless Hand Scanner contains a radio transmitter and receiver. When in
operation, it communicates with a Bluetooth enabled mobile computer by receiving and
transmitting radio frequency (RF) magnetic fields in the frequency range 2400 to 2483.5 MHz. The
output power of the radio transmitter is 15.75 mW. The Socket Bluetooth Cordless Hand Scanner
is designed to be in compliance with the RF exposure limits set by national authorities and
1
international health agencies when installed or used separately from other antennas or radio
transmitters.

APPENDIX B: SAFETY AND USAGE TIPS
95
APPENDIX C
BARCODE LABEL SPECIFICATIONS
All barcode symbols/labels should satisfy the appropriate AIM Uniform Symbology Specification.
Background Substrate:
The barcode symbol should be printed on material (media) that is reflective and has a matte (not
glossy) finish. A background diffuse reflectance of at least 70% to 80% is desirable for optimum
contrast. Retro-reflective media should be used to obtain decode distances greater than 36 inches.
Ink Color and Type:
The inked bars should not exceed 25% reflectance at the wavelength that is being used for
reading, whether printed with black ink or colored ink. The reflectance value should not vary
more than 5% within the same character.
Voids and Specks:
The code should be printed clearly, free of voids, specks, blemishes and lines that could “fool” the
scanner. Specks or blemishes in the white spaces, or false or missing bar sections could be
interpreted by the reading equipment as part of the code. Generally, the width of such flaws is
more serious than the height. Code symbols/ labels should be rejected if these defects are present.
Definition:
The bars in the barcode symbol should be well defined. Their edges should not be rough or fuzzy,
so that the bars and spaces have the proper widths intended for the barcode symbology used.
Contrast:
Background reflectance (that of the substrate on which the codes are printed) should always
provide a good contrast relative to the ink reflectance (that of the code bars). The difference
between the two should be at least 37.5% at the wavelength used for reading.
Tolerance:
The ratio of the widths of bars and spaces in a barcode symbol must conform to the appropriate
AIM barcode specifications and can cause problems if not correct throughout the barcode.
Problems can occur when bar edges are smeared or rough, or when they exhibit voids.
96
APPENDIX D
DECODE ZONE
The decode zone for CHS 7Mi and 7Pi is shown below. The minimum element width (“X
Dimension” or barcode “size”) is the width in thousandths of an inch (mils) of the narrowest
element (bar or space) in the symbol. The figures shown are the typical scanning distances (depths
of field) for selected barcode sizes. The maximum usable length of a barcode symbol (Width of
Field) at any given range is also shown.
APPENDIX D: DECODE ZONE

APPENDIX J
TROUBLESHOOTING
GENERAL TROUBLESHOOTING – ALL OS
SYMPTOM: When I try to scan, I aim the beam at the barcode, but no data appears on my screen, and
the beam eventually turns off.
POSSIBLE REASON
SOLUTION
The scanner is too close or too far from the
barcode, or at an incorrect angle
The barcode is incorrectly formatted,
damaged or poorly printed.
The barcode symbology may be disabled or
not supported by the CHS.
Practice scanning at different distances and angles so you get
accustomed to the most effective position.
Try scanning a barcode that is correctly formatted, printed
clearly, and in good condition.
Enable the symbology. If you are using the CHS in SPP mode,
use the symbology selector feature of SocketScan software. If
you are using the CHS in HID mode, please refer to the
SocketScan Advanced Programming Guide for instructions.
You don’t have an application open to
scan data into.
If you do not know the symbology of the barcode, and the
CHS works in SPP mode for your computer / device, you can
use the Scanner Settings utility to test scanning the barcode
and determine its symbology.
Open an application (e.g., a spreadsheet). Place the cursor
where you want to enter data. Try scanning again.
SYMPTOM: My computer/device cannot find the CHS, and/or I get an error message saying that there are
connection problems.
POSSIBLE REASONS
SOLUTION
The computer/device is too far from the
CHS.
The CHS is not powered on.
You are using the CHS in SPP mode and
have assigned another device as your
default Bluetooth serial device.
Your computer/device does not have
Bluetooth enabled and/or the Bluetooth
software is not running.
The CHS is already paired with another
computer/device.

something you can easily recognize.
APPENDIX J: TROUBLESHOOTING
107
SYMPTOM: When I scan a barcode, odd behaviors occur, such as different applications seem to be
invoked in my system, and/or special characters are displayed in the application unexpectedly.
POSSIBLE REASON
SOLUTION
In HID mode, the CHS will only properly
read printable ASCII characters. Nonprintable ASCII characters or extended
characters cannot be interpreted by the
scanner. Printable ASCII characters are
numbers between 0x20 and 0x7E, and any
ASCII characters that fall outside of this
scope are considered as non-printable.
Use the SocketScan 10 SDK to develop a custom
application that supports non-printable ASCII characters.
Learn more about the SDK at:
http://www.socketmobile.com/products/sdk/
SYMPTOM: When I press the Shift, Caps Lock or Ctrl key on my keyboard, it affects the data output
from my CHS to my computer.
POSSIBLE REASON
SOLUTION
You are using the CHS in HID mode as a
Keyboard class device.
Determine how your computer implements HID keyboard
devices.
SYMPTOM: When I scan some barcodes with the CHS in SPP mode, the data is truncated or some
characters are corrupted.
POSSIBLE REASON
SOLUTION
The barcode data has illegal characters.
SocketScan 10 is designed to read ASCII
characters between 0x20 (Space) and 0x7F.
If you have a truncated barcode, you can view the raw
data without any conversions by using the Test option of
Scanner Settings, with hexadecimal format selected. If
you need to scan data that is not 7 bit ASCII (e.g., Double
Byte, MultiByte or UNICODE for Kanji, simplified Chinese,
etc.) use the SocketScan 10 SDK.
