ABOUT BLUETOOTH HID AND SPP MODES
The CHS v3 supports 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
(especially if scanning barcodes that contain a lot of data). The CHS 7Ci also supports iOS
mode to enable SPP connections with the iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.

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.

APPENDIX B
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
1
compliance with the RF exposure limits set by national authorities and international health agencies
when installed or used separately from other antennas or radio transmitters.

APPENDIX C
BARCODE LABEL SPECIFICATIONS
All barcode symbols/labels should satisfy the appropriate AIM Uniform Symbology Specification.
Note: The CHS 7C/7Ci can also scan barcodes on device screens.
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 zones for 1D models of the Socket Bluetooth Cordless Hand Scanner (v3) are 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 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
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.
You don’t have an application open to scan
data into.
SOLUTION
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.
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
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.
SOLUTION
Move the devices closer together, within a range of 10-15 m.
Power on the CHS.
Remove any settings that assign another device as your default
Bluetooth serial device.
Enable Bluetooth on your computer/device and make sure the
Bluetooth software is running.
Unpair the CHS. See Appendix F for instructions.
SYMPTOM: The Bluetooth device search has found multiple CHS devices, and I don’t know which one to
choose.
POSSIBLE REASONS
SOLUTION
The CHS is not paired with a host system, and Power off the CHS device(s) you do not want to connect to and res
there are multiple CHS devices in range.
Bluetooth device search.
Alternatively, If the CHS works in SPP mode with your
computer/device, you can use the SocketScan Scanner Settings
utility to change the scanner’s Bluetooth friendly name to
something you can easily recognize.
116
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
In HID mode, the CHS will only properly read
printable ASCII characters. Non-printable
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.
SOLUTION
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
You are using the CHS in HID mode as a
Keyboard class device.
SOLUTION
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
The barcode data has illegal characters.
SocketScan 10 is designed to read ASCII
characters between 0x20 (Space) and 0x7F.
APPENDIX J: TROUBLESHOOTING
SOLUTION
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.
