For European Community Users
Honeywell complies with Directive 2002/96/EC OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE
COUNCIL of 27 January 2003 on waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Information
This product has required the extraction and use of natural resources for its production. It may contain
hazardous substances that could impact health and the environment, if not properly disposed.
In order to avoid the dissemination of those substances in our environment and to diminish the pressure
on the natural resources, we encourage you to use the appropriate take-back systems for product
disposal. Those systems will reuse or recycle most of the materials of the product you are disposing in a
sound way.

The crossed out wheeled bin symbol informs you that the product should not be disposed of along
with municipal waste and invites you to use the appropriate separate take-back systems for product
disposal.
If you need more information on the collection, reuse, and recycling systems, please contact your local or
regional waste administration.
You may also contact your supplier for more information on the environmental performances of this
product.
Pacemakers, Hearing Aids and Other Electrically Powered Devices
Most manufacturers of medical devices adhere to the IEC 601-1-2 standard. This standard requires
devices to operate properly in an EM Field with a strength of 3V/m over a frequency range of 26 to
1000MHz. The maximum allowable field strength emitted by the Dolphin terminal is 0.3V/m according to
Subpart B of Part 1 of the FCC rules. Therefore, the RF from the Dolphin terminal has no effect on medical
devices that meet the IEC specification.
Microwaves
The radio in the Dolphin RF terminal operates on the same frequency band as a microwave oven.
Therefore, if you use a microwave within range of the Dolphin RF terminal you may notice performance
degradation in your wireless network. However, both your microwave and your wireless network will
continue to function. The Dolphin Batch terminal does not contain a radio, and therefore, is not affected
by microwave ovens.

Getting Started
Out of the Box
Verify that the carton contains the following items:
• Dolphin 9900 mobile computer (the terminal)
• Main battery pack (7.4v Li-ion)
• Microsoft Getting Started CD
• Quick Start Guide
Note: If you ordered accessories for your terminals, verify that they are also included with the order.
Be sure to keep the original packaging in the event that the Dolphin terminal should need to be returned
for service. For details, see Product Service and Repair on page 15-1.
Step 1. Install the Main Battery Pack
!
We recommend use of Hand Held Products Li-Ion battery packs. Use of any non-Hand Held Products battery
may result in damage not covered by the warranty.
Dolphin® 9900 Mobile Computer User’s
Guide
Rev C
10/30/08
2-1
Step 2. Charge the Main and Backup Batteries
The power supply for Dolphin terminals consists of two types of battery power: the main battery pack
installed on the back panel and the backup battery that resides inside the terminal.
The main battery powers the terminal. The internal backup battery charges off the main battery and
maintains the application data stored in RAM memory for up to 30 minutes when the terminal’s main
battery pack is completely discharged or removed.
Before Initial Use
Terminals are shipped with both batteries discharged of all power. Charge the main battery pack
for a minimum of 4.5 hours before initial use.
Time to Charge
4.5 hours for the main battery pack, 8 hours for the internal backup battery the first time. Connect
the terminal to one of the 9000 series charging peripherals to charge; see Peripherals on page 3-2.
!
We recommend use of Hand Held Products peripherals, power cables, and power adapters. Use of any nonHand Held Products peripherals, cables, or power adapters may cause damage not covered by the warranty.
Step 3. Boot the Terminal
The terminal begins booting as soon as power is applied and runs by itself. Do NOT press any keys or
interrupt the boot process. Only tap the screen when prompted.
When the boot process is complete, the Today screen appears and the terminal is ready for use.
Note: Because, the Today screen appears a number of times during the boot process, wait a few seconds before
tapping anything on the Today screen.
Step 4. Set the Time and Date
You need to re-set the time and date after every hard reset of the terminal. It is a good idea to set the time
and date now before you begin using the device.
On the Today screen, tap the line that displays the time and date,
The Clock Settings screen appears.
The time zone defaults to GMT-5 Eastern US; tap the arrow to the right of GMT-5 Eastern US to select
another time zone. Set the correct time and date in the remaining fields and tap OK to save.

ActiveSync Communication
To synchronize, ActiveSync 4.5 or higher must be installed and configured for the appropriate
communication type on the host workstation and the Dolphin terminal. Dolphin terminals ship with
ActiveSync already installed. Therefore, if ActiveSync is already installed on the host workstation, you just
need to connect the Dolphin terminal to the host workstation (via Dolphin peripheral) to initiate
communication.
If ActiveSync 4.5 or higher is not installed on the host workstation, install it from the Microsoft Companion
CD that came with the Dolphin terminal. Insert the CD into the CD-ROM drive of the host workstation and
follow the directions on your screen.
Note: You can also download the most current version of ActiveSync from www.microsoft.com and install.
!
When communicating via ActiveSync, your terminal is designed to be connected to the host workstation with
a Hand Held Products communication peripheral. We recommend use of Hand Held Products peripherals,
power cables, and power adapters. Use of any non-Hand Held Products peripherals, cables, or power
adapters may cause damage not covered by the warranty.
Capabilities
• Back up and restore your device data.
• Copy (rather than synchronize) files between your terminal and workstation.
• Control when synchronization occurs by selecting a synchronization mode. For example, you can
synchronize continually while connected to your workstation or only when you choose the synchronize
command.
• Select which information types are synchronized and control how much data is synchronized. For
example, you can choose how many weeks of past appointments you want synchronized.
Communication Types
The Dolphin terminal supports the following types of communication via ActiveSync through its I/O
Connector (see page 3-10) on the bottom panel:
USB
The USB cable and hardware peripherals allow the terminal to communicate with a workstation or
to networked through a USB hub. The Dolphin terminal supports full-speed USB communication
(USB 1.1); maximum data transfer rate is 12 Mbps. The Dolphin terminal defaults to USB
communication out of the box.
RS-232
The RS-232 cable allows the terminal to communicate with a workstation, modem, or any RS-232
device. Maximum data transfer rate is 115 Kbps.
Hardware Requirements for Setup

Using the Touch Panel
Honeywell defines proper use of the terminal touch panel as using a screen protector and proper stylus.
Screen protectors maintain the ongoing integrity (i.e., prevent scratching) of the touch panel, which is why
their use is recommended for applications that require a high to medium level of interface with the touch
panel, such as signature capture for proof of delivery.
Honeywell continues to advocate the use of screen protectors on all Dolphin devices. We recommend
implementing a screen protector replacement program to ensure that screen protectors are replaced
periodically when signs of damage/wear are noticeable. For general use, we recommend replacing the
screen protector every thirty (30) days. However, replacement cycles vary according to the average level
of touch panel use in your application.
Replacement screen protectors can be purchased directly from Honeywell. Please contact a Honeywell
sales associate for details.
Honeywell also mandates use of a proper stylus, which is one that has a stylus tip radius of no less than
0.8mm. Use of the Honeywell stylus included with the terminal is recommended at all times.
Honeywell warranty policy covers wear on the touch panel for the first 12 months provided that a screen
protector is applied and an approved stylus is used for the 12 month duration covered by the warranty.
Installing a Screen Protector
Dolphin 9900 terminals ship with a screen protector already installed. You will need to replace the screen
protector at regular intervals.
1. After the current screen protector has been removed from the touch panel, clean the touch panel
thoroughly with a clean, non-abrasive, lint-free cloth. Make sure nothing else is still attached to the
touch panel.
2.
Align the exposed section of the protector with the bottom edge of the touch panel.
Make sure that the screen protector is flush with each side of the touch panel.
To reposition, lift up gently and reapply.
3.
Press the screen protector firmly and carefully across the surface of the touch panel as you peel
away the backing.
4.
If necessary, smooth out any air pockets or bumps.

Batteries
There are two types of battery power: the main battery pack installed in the back panel and the backup
battery located inside the terminal. They are designed to work together to prevent data loss when the
terminal is in use over long periods.
Both batteries must be completely charged before using a Dolphin terminal for the first time!
Main Battery Pack
!
We recommend use of Hand Held Products Li-Ion battery packs. Use of any non-Hand Held Products battery
may result in damage not covered by the warranty.
The 7.4V, 18.5 watt hour Li-ion battery pack is the primary power source for the terminal. The Li-ion
battery is designed to operate in a temperature range of -10° to 50°C (14° to 122°F).
Charging Options
When the Li-ion battery is installed in the terminal, use one of the following peripherals:
• Dolphin HomeBase Device (see page 11-1)
• Dolphin Mobile Base Device (see page 12-1)
• Dolphin ChargeBase Device (see page 13-1)
• Dolphin Net Base (Please see the Dolphin Net Base Quick Start Guide on www.honeywell.com/aidc.)
• Dolphin Mobile Charger
When the Li-ion battery is not installed in the terminal:
• Place the battery pack in the Dolphin QuadCharger device (see page 14-4)
• Place the battery pack in the Auxiliary Battery Well of the Dolphin HomeBase (see page 11-6).
Charging Time
The Li-ion battery pack requires 4.5 hours to charge completely before initial use.
Storing Batteries
To maintain optimal battery performance, follow these storage guidelines:
• Avoid storing batteries outside the specified range of -4° to 104° F (-20° to 40°C) or in extremely high
humidity.
• For prolonged storage, do not keep batteries stored in a charger that is connected to a power source.
Guidelines for Battery Pack Use and Disposal
The following are general guidelines for the safe use and disposal of batteries:
• We recommend use of Hand Held Products Li-Ion battery packs. Use of any non-Hand Held Products
battery may pose a personal hazard to the user.
• Replace defective batteries immediately; using a defective battery could damage the Dolphin terminal.
• Never throw a used battery in the trash. It contains heavy metals and should be recycled according to
local guidelines.
• Don’t use a battery in any other manner outside its intended use in Dolphin terminals and peripherals.
• Don’t short-circuit a battery or throw it into a fire; it can explode and cause severe personal injury.
• Excessive discharge damages a battery. Recharge the battery when your terminal indicates low battery
power.

Rev C
10/30/08
Dolphin® 9900 Mobile Computer
User’s Guide
• If you observe that the Hand Held Products battery supplied is physically damaged in some way, please
send it to Honeywell International Inc. or an authorized service center for inspection. Refer to the
Product Service and Repair section of this guide.
• Although your battery can be recharged many times, it will eventually be depleted. Replace it after the
battery is unable to hold an adequate charge.
• If you are not sure the battery or charger is working properly, please send it to Honeywell International
or an authorized service center for inspection.
Internal Backup Battery
Located inside the terminal, the backup battery is a 3.6 Volt nickel metal hydride (NiMH) battery.
The internal backup battery prevents the terminal from being reset if you need to remove and replace the
main battery pack. It retains RAM data and allows the real-time clock to remain operational for up to 30
minutes when the main battery pack is removed. If the terminal is left without the main battery pack for
more than 30 minutes, the internal backup battery needs to be recharged to function according to its
specifications.
Note: Data and programs stored in Flash memory are not lost even if the internal backup battery fails. However, you
must reset the real-time clock; see Set the Time and Date on page 2-2.
Charging
The internal backup battery is powered by the main battery pack. Therefore, charging the internal backup
battery requires that the main battery pack be installed in the terminal and the terminal be connected to
a charging device.
The internal backup battery must be fully charged before using the terminal for the first time. The initial
charge cycle takes approximately 8 hours. After that, if the internal backup battery becomes fully
discharged of power, it requires a minimum of 10 hours of charging time to function normally.
Guidelines for Use
Follow these guidelines to maximize the life of the internal backup battery:
• Keep a charged Li-ion battery pack in the terminal; the backup battery prematurely discharges if there
is not at least a partially charged battery in the terminal.
• Keep the terminal connected to power when the terminal is not in use.
Managing Battery Power
Data and files saved on Dolphin terminals may be stored in RAM memory, which does not persist through
a hard reset. Therefore, to help prevent data loss, maintain a continuous power supply to the terminal.
Letting the backup battery become fully discharged causes the terminal to lose all data in RAM.
Therefore, you should keep a charged battery pack in the terminal at all times. The internal battery
discharges prematurely if there is not at least a partially charged battery in the terminal. When you remove
a battery pack, insert another charged battery pack in the terminal immediately.
Default Critical and Low Battery Points
When the terminal is running on battery power (as opposed to external power), warnings are displayed
when the battery reaches critical and low battery points. The warning points are determined by the
following registry entry:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power]
Dolphin® 9900 Mobile Computer User’s
Guide
Rev C
10/30/08
3 - 15
There are two DWORD values in this registry entry: LowBatt and CriticalBatt.
The default values for these entries are as follows:
LowBatt=19 (25%)
This sets the Low Battery point to 25% (19 hex=25 decimal). When the battery hits the
percentage charge specified here, the user is notified by this icon in the Navigation bar
.
If the main battery is low and the terminal is in suspend mode, pressing the SCAN or Power
button won’t wake the Dolphin terminal; you must replace the discharged battery with a battery
charged over 25% mark before you can resume terminal operation.
CriticalBatt=a (10%)
This sets the Critical Battery point to 10% (a hex= 0 decimal). When the battery hits the
percentage charge specified here, the user is notified by this icon in the Navigation bar
.
Note: Warnings do not appear when the terminal is on external power.
Setting Critical and Low Battery Points
Developers can reset these parameters in the registry from 0 (no warning) to 99 (would nearly always
warn). You can review and set these battery points in the RegEdit Power Tool.
1. Tap Start > Power Tools > RegEdit.
2.
Drill-down to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > System > CurrentControlSet > Control > Power.

Decoding
The terminal supports two types of image decoding for use in various bar code reading and imaging
applications: full-area imaging and Advanced Linear Decoding (ALD).
Full-Area Imaging
Full-area imaging provides omni-directional reading of linear and non-linear 1D and 2D bar codes, OCR,
signature capture, and picture taking. When reading all bar code types using full-area imaging, a positive
read can be obtained from many positions; see Scanning Position Options on page 4-4. To achieve the
best read, the aiming beam should be centered horizontally across the bar code.
ALD
ALD provides fast reading of linear and stacked linear bar codes. To achieve a positive read when reading
linear 1D and PDF417 bar codes, the green aiming beam should be centered horizontally across the bar
code. When ALD is enabled, the reader does not read matrix or postal codes.
To Decode a Bar Code
The imager faces straight out the top panel. The aiming beam should be oriented in line with the bar code
to achieve optimal decoding. A range of 4-10 inches (10-25 cm) from the bar code is recommended.
1. Point the Dolphin terminal directly at the bar code.
2.
Project the aiming beam or pattern by pressing and holding the SCAN key.
3.
The scan LED lights red.
4.
Center the aiming beam over the bar code; see Scanning Position Options on page 4-4.
5.
When the bar code is successfully decoded, the decode LED lights green and the terminal beeps.
6.
The bar code information is entered into the application in use.

Scanning Position Options
The aiming beams are smaller when the terminal is held closer to the code and larger when it is farther
from the code. Symbologies with smaller bars or elements (mil size) should be read closer to the unit
whereas symbologies with larger bars or elements (mil size) should be read farther from the unit.

Capturing Images
The image-capture process is an intuitive, split-second operation for experienced users. By following the
basic guidelines, new users can easily develop their own technique and, with practice, quickly learn to
adapt it to different application environments.
Image Preview
When the imaging process is initiated, the touch screen displays a preview of the object. This is a live
video image of what the imager is currently viewing. The live video image has a slightly degraded
appearance compared to the captured image. This is normal.
Scan Key
The SCAN key captures images.
Image Files
The terminal is capable of saving images in a number of industry-standard file formats such as BMP, JPG,
and PNG. The default file format for images is a grayscale JPG.
Compression
The image quality and related file size are determined by the data compression method used by the
software application used to take images. The average size of the image file is approximately 4–8K.
However, the size of the image depends on the content of the image - the more complex the content, the
larger the file size. For the highest quality image, take grayscale images.
Taking an Image
The following steps are basic guidelines for taking images:
1. Point the Dolphin terminal directly at the object. The imager points straight out the top panel.
2.
To preview the image, press and hold the SCAN key.
3.
The touch screen displays a preview of the object, and the decode and scan LEDs light red.
4.
Adjust the terminal’s position until the object appears on the screen the way you want it to appear in
the image.
5.
Hold the terminal still and release the SCAN key or Scan Trigger. The scan and decode LEDs flash
red, the screen flashes, and the captured image appears on the screen.
6.
Unless otherwise specified by the application in use, the image is saved to the \My Device\My
Documents folder (Start > Programs > File Explorer > My Device > My Documents).

5300 High-Vis Aiming Pattern
If your Dolphin terminal is configured with the 5300 imager, you can enable the aiming pattern for imaging
in the Imaging Demo.
1. Tap Start > Demos > Imaging Demo > Setup menu > Aimer.
2.
The aiming pattern is now enabled for imaging.
Uploading Images
Image files can be uploaded to a host workstation via Microsoft ActiveSync and a Dolphin communication
peripheral or your wireless radio connection.

Memory
The Memory system setting displays capacity and usage statistics for both RAM (volatile) and IPSM/
Storage Card (non-volatile) memory. Access this setting whenever you receive system messages about
memory.
You cannot change the terminal’s memory allocation in the Memory system setting. To change the
memory allocation, you need to use the SetRAM Power Tool (Start > Power Tools > SetRAM). For more
details, please refer to the Honeywell Power Tools User’s Guide, which is available for download from
www.honeywell.com/aidc.
There are three tabs: Main, Storage Card, and Running Programs.
Main Tab
This tab displays the usage statistics of the on-board,
volatile RAM memory.
Columns:
Storage=RAM memory used to store programs and program data.
Program=RAM memory used to run programs.
Rows:
Total= Displays the current MB of memory allocated for use.
In use=Displays the total MB of that allocated memory being used.
Free=Displays the total MB of memory available.
Storage Card Tab
This tab displays the current capacity and usage statistics
of the selected memory type; IPSM or Storage Card.
Select the memory type from the drop-down list. IPSM is
selected by default.
Total storage card memory=
The total MB of memory capacity of IPSM or Storage Card.
In use=The MB currently being used.
Free=The MB that is still available for use.
IPSM—Short for Internal Persistent Storage Manager, this is the on-board Flash
memory that is non-volatile. Because this memory is non-volatile, data or programs
stored in IPSM are not affected when power is removed. Autoinstall programs, for
example, are stored in IPSM so that they are always installed at cold-boot startup.
Storage Card—You can install one memory card in Dolphin terminals (see Memory
Card Door on page 3-8). If a storage card is installed in the terminal, you can select
it in the drop-down list and see capacity and usage statistics for the card.

You can
• Select a program in the list and tap Stop to stop it from
running (and therefore from using memory), or
• Tap Stop All to automatically stop all running programs.
!
Anytime you stop a running program, it frees up RAM memory. Be advised that, when
you stop a program here, any unsaved data in that program is lost. To free up memory
without risking data loss, return to the running program, save your data, and close the
application.
Power
Power system settings contains three tabs: Battery and Advanced.

Working with GSM
Overview
The Dolphin 9900 can be configured with an integrated, embedded GSM/GPRS quad-band radio module
for WWAN communication.
GSM
Short for Global System for Mobile communications, GSM is an open, non-proprietary wireless
WAN system that is constantly evolving and growing.
GPRS
Short for General Packet Radio Service, GPRS is a non-voice value added service that allows
packet-switched data to be instantly sent and received across mobile telephone networks.
Requirements
Using GSM/GPRS requires a:
• Network subscription to a GSM/GPRS network (you need to know what service providers are in your
geographic area), and
• An installed SIM card that has been activated by the network service provider (see SIM Card
Installation on page 8-2).
Quad Band Antenna
Dolphin terminals configured with a GSM radio feature an external antenna that is optimized for power
output and receiver sensitivity. This is an omni-directional antenna with zero dBm gain.
For the MC-75 radio, there are two different antennas based on geographical location; each supports two
bandwidths:
Europe:
Supports 900 MHz and 1800 MHz bands.
North America: Supports 850 MHz and 1900 MHz bands.
Signal Strength
The signal strength of the GSM connection is indicated by the number of bars that appear in the signal
strength icon in the Navigation bar at the top of the window.
Icon
Indicates…
The signal strength of the radio connection.
The signal strength of the phone (voice) connection; see page 8-5.

Voice and Data Communication
Dolphin terminals with integrated GSM/GPRS radios are optimized for the following two-way voice and
data communications:
Voice:
GSM voice data ("dial-up")
Data:
GPRS Class 10: Data transmissions average 40-60 Kbps (available speed depends on the
wireless network carrier).
You can use the GSM radio for voice communication and data communication but not at the same time.
If you want to communicate over the phone (voice), you cannot send data. If you want to send data, you
cannot use the phone.
SIM Card Installation
Short for Subscriber Information Module, a SIM card stores the subscriber's personal information, GSM/
GPRS radio settings, security keys, contacts, etc. SIM cards are installed in compatible mobile devices,
enabling you to switch devices without losing personal and setup information.
SIM Card Requirements
Before installing the SIM card:
• The SIM card must be activated by the service provider.
• The terminal must be powered down.
Note: If no SIM card is installed, you can still make emergency phone calls such as 9-1-1, for example.
To Install a SIM Card
On the Dolphin 9900 terminal, access to the SIM card is located under the battery well, which enables
easy access to the SIM card while securing it under an installed battery.
1. Put the terminal in suspend mode and lay it face-down on a flat surface.
2.
Remove the battery pack.

Working with GPS
Overview
The Dolphin 9900 terminal contains an integrated GPS module which allows location tracking of workers
and vehicles, providing better utilization of field assets. Optional mapping and navigation software
provides turn-by-turn driving directions and location information, allowing workers to arrive on time.
Assisted GPS Support
The operating system software does not inhibit nor explicitly support assisted GPS modes, which usually
requires installing a vendor-specific client on the 9900 that communicates with the GPS module. This
client would then provide the almanac and/or ephemeris data for warm or hot start modes of operation,
allowing a lower time to first fix (TTFS). The Client must be configured on the 9900, active, and provide
the data to the GPS module through the standard COM port.
Powering the GPS Module
The GPS module powers on automatically when accessed by a software application and powers off
automatically when that software application closes. You cannot manually power on and off the GPS
module.
Communication Ports
There are two ways to access the GPS module: through the actual COM port, which is COM7 or the GPS
Intermediate Driver. Which method you use depends on the software application you are using. If the
software application requires the actual COM Port, set the operating system to use COM7. If the software
application requires the GPS Intermediate Driver, set the operating system to use the GPS Intermediate
Driver.
Selecting the Port
1.
Tap Start > Settings > System tab > External GPS.
2.
In the GPS program port: drop-down list, select COM7 or GPD1 (the GPS Intermediate Driver) as
required by the application.
3.
Tap OK to save.

COM7
COM Port 7 can be set to the following baud rates:
• 4800
• 9600 (This is the default baud rate and recommended for optimal GPS functioning.)
• 19200
• 38400
Other baud rates are not possible. The baud rate selected on COM7 is the actual baud rate with which
the GPS will be communicating.
GPS Intermediate Driver
When the first user of GPD1 opens the port, the GPS Intermediate Driver in turn opens port COM7. The
GPS Intermediate Driver allows multiple applications to open GPD1, and the GPS data is broadcast to all
open ports.
When the GPSID driver is in use, the COM7 port is allocated to GPSID as READ|WRITE. (COM7 is still
available for access mode of 0.)
For more information about Microsoft’s GPS Intermediate Driver, follow this link: http://
msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms850332.aspx
GPS Demo
Dolphin 9900 terminals feature a GPS Demo that demonstrate the main functionality of the integrated
GPS module. The GPS Demo uses COM7.
To see the GPS Demo, tap Start > GPS Demo.
For complete information about how to operate the GPS Demo, refer to the Demos User’s Guide for

Dolphin HomeBase Device
Overview
As the hub of your Dolphin system, the Dolphin HomeBase charging and communication cradle supports
both RS-232 and USB communications, which make it able to interface with the majority of PC-based
enterprise systems. When a terminal is seated in the base, its main battery pack charges in 4.5 hours.
Charge Time
The base completes a full charge of the main battery pack installed in the terminal seated in the terminal
well in 4.5 hours. The base completes a full charge of the main battery pack in the Auxiliary Battery Well
(see page 11-2) in 4 hours.
Charging Process
The base also provides power to the intelligent battery charging system in all Dolphin terminals that
senses when a full charge has been achieved and switches to a trickle charge to maintain the full charge.
Communications
Reliable data communications at speeds of up to 115k baud can be transmitted by the base through the
RS-232 serial port. Using the full-speed USB port, the data transmission rate goes up to 12 Mbps.
These bases cannot be physically connected to each other - sometimes referred to as “daisy-chained” but can be networked together via a serial or USB hub.
Convenient Storage
The intelligent battery charging system makes this base a safe and convenient storage receptacle for your
Dolphin terminal.
Capacity
The base holds one terminal and features an auxiliary battery well behind the terminal well that can
charge a battery pack independently of the terminal well. This means that one base can charge two
battery packs: the one installed in the terminal and a spare.

Powering the Dolphin Terminal
When seated in a base that is connected to the appropriate power source, the Dolphin terminal receives
the power to charge its main battery and run its internal circuitry. Keep the base plugged into the power
source so that the Dolphin terminal battery pack stays fully charged.
For more information about powering the base, see Power on page 12-6.
Charging the Dolphin Terminal
The base supplies charging power to the Dolphin terminal so that the terminal can monitor the charging
of its battery pack. This charging method protects the battery from being damaged by overcharging.
Therefore, the Dolphin terminal may be stored indefinitely in the base without damage to the terminal, the
battery pack, or the base.
1. Insert a battery pack into the terminal.
2.
Slide the terminal, imager window up and the LCD visible, into the terminal well until it stops.

Establishing Communication
The RS-232 interface allows the terminal to communicate to a workstation, modem, or any standard RS232 device using a standard serial cable and communications software.
Requirements
You need the following equipment:
• A Mobile Base device powered by a power cable and power adapter cable
• The RS-232 communications cable
• ActiveSync v4.5 or above on the host workstation
• Windows® 98 Second Edition*, Windows® Me, Windows® 2000, or Windows® XP on the host
workstation
Connecting the Communication Cables
Note:
You must be using ActiveSync 4.5 or higher.
1.
Plug in the power supply and connect it to the back of the base.
2.
Plug the RS-232 communication cable into the back of the base.
3.
Connect the communication cable into the back of the workstation.
4.
At this point, the hardware is installed and operating.
You may need to reboot your workstation to complete the installation process.
Establishing ActiveSync Communication
The Dolphin terminal is usually auto-detected and configured by ActiveSync based on the communication
cable. If you are using an RS-232 cable, ActiveSync will usually set up an RS-232 connection.
For more details, see ActiveSync Communication on page 3-11.
Connecting the Cables
Connect the base to the host workstation or other device by plugging an RS-232 serial cable into the RS232 Communications Port on the bottom of the base. Plug the other end of the RS-232 serial cable into
the correct port on the host RS-232 device.
The wiring of your cable depends on whether the other device is set up as a Data Communications
Equipment (DCE) or Data Terminal Equipment (DTE) device.
The Communication Port is configured as a DCE device. To communicate with a DTE device such as a
workstation, use a standard (or straight-through) RS-232 cable. To communicate with a DCE device, use
either a null modem adapter in line with a standard RS-232 cable, or a null-modem serial cable.

(ii) damaged by accident or negligence, including failure to follow the proper maintenance, service, and
cleaning schedule; or (iii) damaged as a result of (A) modification or alteration by the purchaser or other

except for return shipping to HII.

FROM A CLAIM BASED ON CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT, OR OTHERWISE) EXCEED THE
ACTUAL AMOUNT PAID TO HII FOR THE PRODUCT. THESE LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITY SHALL
REMAIN IN FULL FORCE AND EFFECT EVEN WHEN HII MAY HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE
POSSIBILITY OF SUCH INJURIES, LOSSES, OR DAMAGES. SOME STATES, PROVINCES, OR
COUNTRIES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATIONS OF INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO
