WLS8600
Using the WLS8600
WLS8600 readers automatically scan barcodes at a distance. Simply aim and pull
the trigger. Code scanning is performed along the scan line emitted from the reading window. This line must cross the entire code. The best reading angles are indicated in the figure below.:
Aiming System
The WLS8600 provides an aiming system. If enabled, a partial trigger press produces a red spot, which should be aimed over the code center to get the best reading
performance, see figure (1) above. By completely pressing the trigger the scan line
appears to start code scanning (2).
After setting up the reader, you can enable or disable the aiming system by reading
the codes below:

Laser Safety Compliance
The laser scanner conforms to the applicable requirements of both CDRH 21 CFR
1040 and EN60825-1 at the date of manufacture.
The laser light is visible to the human eye and is emitted from the output window (1).
Laser warning and classification label (2).
WARNING
Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other
than those specified herein may result in exposure to hazardous
visible laser light.
The laser scanner utilizes a low-power laser diode. Although staring directly at the
laser beam momentarily causes no known biological damage, avoid staring at the
beam as one would with any very strong light source, such as the sun. Avoid that
the laser beam hits the eye of an observer, even through reflective surfaces such as
mirrors, etc.
