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.

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
that is accessible from 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. The initial charging time for the main
battery pack is 4 hours, and 8 hours for the internal backup battery. Connect the terminal to one of the
9700 series charging peripherals to charge; see Peripherals for the 9700 on page 3-2.
!
We recommend use of Honeywell peripherals, power cables, and power adapters. Use of any
non-Honeywell peripherals, cables, or power adapters may cause damage not covered by the
warranty.

3 - 10
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 advocates 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 if 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 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 Honeywell Li-Ion battery packs. Use of any non-Honeywell battery may result in
damage not covered by the warranty.
The 7.4V, 12.0 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 9700 HomeBase Device (see page 12-1)
• Dolphin 9700 Mobile Base Device (see page 13-1)
• Dolphin 9700 ChargeBase Device (see page 14-1)
• Dolphin 9700 Mobile Charger
When the Li-ion battery is not installed in the terminal:
• Place the battery pack in the Dolphin 9700 QuadCharger device (see page 15-4)
• Place the battery pack in the Auxiliary Battery Well of the Dolphin 9700 HomeBase device (see page
12-6).
Charging Time
The Li-ion battery pack requires 4 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 Honeywell Li-Ion battery packs. Use of any non-Honeywell 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. A battery contains heavy metals and should be recycled
according to local guidelines.
• Do not use a battery in any other manner outside its intended use in Dolphin terminals and peripherals.
• Do not 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.
3 - 13
• If you observe that the Honeywell battery supplied is physically damaged, 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, the battery life is limited. Replace it after the
battery is unable to hold an adequate charge.
• If you are not sure the battery or charger is working properly, 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. 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.
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\ControlPanel\Power]
There are two DWORD values in this registry entry: MedState and LowState.
3 - 14
The default values for these entries are as follows:
MedState=25%
This sets the Low Battery point to 25%. When the battery hits the percentage charge specified
here, the user is notified by this icon in the Navigation bar
.
LowState=10%
This sets the Critical Battery point to 10%. 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 > ControlPanel > Power.
3.
Tap the Value Name to change the Value Data.
You can reset the Value Data from 0 (no warning) to 99 (would nearly always warn).

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 Aiming 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 Aiming 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.
4-3
Aiming 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.

If your Dolphin terminal is configured with a 5300 imager, high-vis aimers frame the bar code for more
intuitive aiming.

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
On all 9700 terminals, the SCAN key captures images.
File Formats
File formats supported for image storage include Bitmap (BMP), JPEG (JPG) and Portable Network
Graphics (PNG). The default file format for images is a grayscale JPG.
Compression
Digital images have a maximum image size of 640 x 480 pixels and may have up to a 256 grayscale
image definition.
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. 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).
4-5
Enabling the Aimer
If your Dolphin terminal is configured with the 5300 imager, you can enable the aiming pattern for imaging
in the Imaging Demo. For details about the aimer, see 5300 Red High-Vis Aiming Pattern on page 4-4.
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.honeywellaidc.com.
There are two 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 Installing
a Memory Card on page 3-9). 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.

ActiveSync Communication
To synchronize data between the terminal and the workstation, 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, you can download and install the most
current version of ActiveSync from www.microsoft.com.
!
When communicating via ActiveSync, your terminal is designed to be connected to the host workstation with
a communication peripheral sold/manufactured by Honeywell, such as the charge/communication cable. Use
of any peripheral not sold/manufactured by Honeywell may cause damage not covered by the warranty.
Capabilities
• Back up and restore your device data.
• Copy (rather than synchronize) files between your device 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, controling 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.
RS232
The RS232 cable allows the terminal to communicate with a workstation, modem, or any RS232
device. Maximum data transfer rate is 115 Kbps.
Hardware Requirements for Setup

penta-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.
HSDPA
Short for High-Speed Download Packet Access, HSDPA is a non-voice value added service that
allows packet-switched data to be instantly sent and received across mobile telephone networks.
UMTS
Short for Universal Mobile Telecommunications System, UMTS is a non-voice value added service
that allows packet-switched data to be instantly sent and received across mobile telephone
networks.
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.
EDGE
E-GPRS is a non-voice value added service that allows packet-switched data to be instantly sent
and received across mobile telephone networks at a higher data rate than standard GPRS.
Requirements
Using GSM/HSDPA/UMTS/GPRS/EDGE requires a:
• Network subscription to a GSM/HSDPA/UMTS/GPRS/EDGE 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 9-2).
Penta Band Antenna
The GSM radio features an internal antenna that is optimized for power output and receiver sensitivity.
This is an omni-directional antenna.
For the HC-25 radio, there is a unified penta-band antenna that supports 850/900/1800/1900 (GSM/
GPRS/EDGE) and 850/1900/2100 (HSDPA/UMTS) MHz for obtaining GSM service worldwide.

Working with GPS
Overview
The Dolphin 9700 terminal contains an integrated GPS module that 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 terminal 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 terminal, 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 (COM7) or the GPS
Intermediate Driver. The 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 > 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.
11 - 1
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://
msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms850332.aspx
GPS Demo
The GPS Demo demonstrates the main functionality of the integrated GPS module. The GPS Demo uses
COM7.
To see the GPS Demo, tap Start > GPS Demo.

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) RS232 cable. To communicate with a DCE device, use
either a null modem adapter in line with a standard RS232 cable, or a null-modem serial cable.

Problem
Issue
The Status LED does not come on when I
insert a battery pack.
Check the power connections; make sure the POWER switch is
ON and the battery pack is properly seated.
The Status LED lights red during charging.
Try to charge the battery in one of the other charging slots. If
the red Status LED comes on again, then the problem is
associated with the battery pack. If the red status stays with the
charging slot, the problem is associated with the charging
circuitry.
The Status LED lights red and stays on
without a battery in the charging slot.
An error occurred during the self-diagnostic test for that
particular charging pocket. Call Honeywell Product Service and
request an RMA.
