Preface
The Nexus N-3030 is a new presentation laser scanner which allows handsfree
bar code scanning, based on proven Scantech-ID technologies which form the
basis of all our omni-directional scanners. Bar code labels are read by
presenting the labels towards the scanner. Scanning labels with the Nexus N3030 hardly requires any arm movement. As a result only little free space on the
counter top is necessary.
The Nexus can either be fixed on a counter surface or on a flexible stand. The
flexible stand allows you to direct the scan pattern in a way that is optimal for
your application.
The Nexus N-3030 reads all popular bar code symbologies. An important
feature of the Nexus N-3030 is its programmable sleep mode. If the scanner is
not used within a programmable period of time, the scanner switches off
automatically. The scanner can be re-activated by pressing the switch on top of
the scanner.
The Nexus N-3030 is available in two versions. Each version features a specific
multiple interface for communication with the host system. The multiple interface
versions are: RS232C/OCIA and IBM RS485/Keyboard Wedge/USB versions.
This manual contains two chapters and three appendices. The first chapter
describes the Nexus and its general features. The description for installation can
be found in the second chapter. Precisely follow the instructions for the
installation of the scanner. Default settings can be changed with the bar code
labels from the Configuration Guide that came with the scanner.
Appendix A gives the pin definition for the Data ports of the scanner. The pin
definition may be required when you want to make a new cable for
communication with the POS/computer. Technical specifications of the Nexus N3030 can be found in Appendix B. Refer to Appendix C for troubleshooting if the
scanner is not working properly.

1.2
SCANNING BAR CODES WITH THE NEXUS N-3030
The Nexus N-3030 is an omni-directional presentation scanner featuring a 7
directional scan field with a 24 lines scan pattern. Bar code labels can easily be
read by presenting them to the scanner.
The scanner's scan volume is illustrated in the figure below. The optimal reading
zone lies between 2 and 15 cm from the scanner window, but bar codes can be
read up to 30 cm (11.8 in.) from the scanner window.
If a scanner with flexible stand is purchased, the stand allows you to direct the
optimal reading zone in a way that suits your application most.
Scanning a bar code label with a presentation scanner is very simple: present
the product’s bar code label to the scanner as illustrated in the figure below.

English:
The N-3030 scanner complies with safety standard IEC 825-1 (1993) for a Class I laser product. It
also complies with U.S. 21CFR1040 as applicable to a Class IIa laser product. Avoid long term
viewing of direct laser light.
Optical:
The use of optical instruments with this product will increase eye hazard. Optical instruments include
binoculars, microscopes and magnifying glasses but do not include eye glasses worn by the user.
Radiant Energy:
The N-3030 uses a low-power laser diode operating at 630…670 nm in an opto-mechanical scanner
resulting in less than 0.6 mW peak output power. Laser light observed at 13 cm (5.1 in.) above the
window through a 7 mm (0.28 in.) aperture and averaged over 1000 seconds is less than 3.9 µW
per CDRH Class IIa specification. Do not attempt to remove the protective housing of the scanner,
as unscanned laser light with a peak output up to 0.8 mW could be accessible inside.
Laser Light Viewer:
The scanner window is the only aperture through which laser light may be observed on this product.
A failure of the scanner motor, while the laser diode continues to emit a laser beam, may cause
emission levels to exceed those for safe operation. The scanner has safeguards to prevent this
occurrence. If, however, a stationary laser beam is emitted, the failing scanner should be
disconnected from its power source immediately.
Adjustments:
Do not attempt any adjustments to or alteration of this product. Do not remove the scanner’s
protective housing. There are no user-serviceable parts inside.
CAUTION: Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures
other than those specified herein may result in hazardous laser light
exposure.

Diagnostic Tips
Unless you use USB plus power, you
need a separate power connection
to the scanner like the external
power supply.
Restart the scanner by temporarily
disconnecting the power. This may
help the POS system to detect the
scanner. The very first time the PC
might install some general drivers,
possibly from your computer setup
CD.
In case of KB emulation you can
select various ‘keyboard languages’
or the universal ‘Alt-input-method’.
In a windows environment verify with
the device manager that a HID
(Human Interface Device) is installed
for the scanner.
Check that scanner and POS-system
or Computer both expect the same
USB protocol (KB emulation, RS-232
emulation or IBM POS protocol).
See Configuration Manual for setup
codes and reset (re-power) the
scanner after making any changes.
