Setting up the scanner
Connecting the cable
1.
Connect the interface cable to the bottom of the scanner.
2.
Connect the other end of the interface cable to a USB connector on the host device.
To disconnect the cable from the scanner, insert a paper clip into the hole in the front of scanner and remove
the cable from the scanner as shown below.
Connecting the cable

Using the scanner
Reading barcodes
Point the scanner at the target and pull the trigger to enable the illuminator (red beam) to decode the barcode
label. The illuminator will remain on until the trigger is released, or a label is read, or the "maximum scan on
time" is reached. When scanning a barcode label, you can adjust the distance or angle to the label to help
facilitate reading. Make sure that the scan line crosses every bar and space of the barcode.
Do not hold the scanner directly over the barcode. Light reflecting directly back into the scanner from the
barcode is known as specular reflection. This specular reflection can make decoding difficult. You can tilt the
scanner up to 65° forward or back and achieve a successful decode.

Cleaning
Exterior surfaces and scan windows exposed to spills, smudges, or debris require periodic cleaning to ensure
best performance during scanning.
Use a soft, dry cloth to clean the product. If the product is very soiled, clean it with a soft cloth moistened with
a diluted non-aggressive cleaning solution or diluted ethyl alcohol.
IMPORTANT:
plastics.
Do not use abrasive or aggressive cleansing agents or abrasive pads to clean scan windows or
Do not spray or pour liquids directly onto the unit.

Programming the scanner
The scanner is factory-configured with a set of standard default features. After scanning the interface
barcode from the “Interfaces” section, select other options and customize your scanner using the
programming barcodes available in the HP Retail Linear Barcode Scanner Programming Reference Guide (PRG).
Check the corresponding features section for your interface, and the Data Editing and Symbologies chapters
of the PRG.
Using programming barcodes
This guide contains barcodes that allow you to reconfigure your scanner. Some programming barcode labels,
like the Reset Default Settings barcode, require only the scan of that single label to enact the change.
Other barcodes require the scanner to be placed in Programming Mode prior to scanning them. Scan an
ENTER/EXIT barcode once to enter Programming Mode, scan the desired parameter settings, and then scan
the ENTER/EXIT barcode again to accept your changes. The scanner exits Programming Mode and returns to
normal operation.
Configuring other setting
Additional programming barcodes are available in the PRG that allow you to customize programming
features. If your installation requires different programming than the standard factory default settings, refer
to the PRG.
Resetting the defaults
If you aren’t sure what programming options are in your scanner, or you’ve changed some options and want
your custom factory settings restored, scan the barcode below to reset the scanner to its initial configuration.
Refer to the PRG for other options and a listing of standard factory settings.
NOTE: Factory defaults are based on the interface type. Be sure your scanner is configured for the correct
interface before scanning this label. See Selecting the interface type on page 6 for more information.

Selecting the interface type
Upon completing the physical connection between the scanner and its host, scan the appropriate barcode to
select your system’s correct interface type. Information and programming options for each interface type are
provided in this chapter. For defaults and additional information, refer to the PRG.
Configuring the interface
Scan the appropriate programming barcode to select the interface type for your system.
NOTE: Unlike some other programming features and options, interface selections require that you scan only
one programming barcode label. DO NOT scan an ENTER/EXIT barcode prior to scanning an interface selection
barcode.
Some interfaces require the scanner to start in the disabled state when powered up. If additional scanner
configuration is desired while in this state, pull the trigger and hold for five seconds. The scanner will change
to a state that allows programming with barcodes.

interfaces.

Reading parameters
Move the scanner toward the target and center the aiming pattern and illumination system to capture and
decode the image. See Using the scanner on page 2 for more information.
The aiming system will briefly switch off after the acquisition time, and if no code is decoded will switch on
again before the next acquisition. The illuminator will remain on until the symbol is decoded.
As you read code symbols, adjust the distance at which you are holding the scanner.
Good read green spot duration
Successful reading can be signaled by a good read green spot. Use the barcodes that follow to specify the
duration of the good read pointer beam after a good read.
Good read green spot duration
ENTER/EXIT PROGRAMMING MODE
Green Spot Duration = Disable (Green Spot is Off)
Green Spot Duration = Short (300 msec)
Green Spot Duration = Medium (500 msec)
Green Spot Duration = Long (800 msec)

Scan modes
The scanner can operate in one of several scanning modes.
Trigger Single: When the trigger is pulled, scanning begins until one of the following occurs:
●
A programmable duration has elapsed
●
A label has been read
●
The trigger is released
●
"Maximum scan on time" is reached
This mode is associated with typical handheld scanner operation.
Trigger Hold Multiple: When the trigger is pulled, scanning begins and the product scans until the trigger is
released, a programmable duration has elapsed, or the "maximum scan on time" is reached. Reading a label
does not disable scanning. "Double read" time-out prevents undesired multiple reads while in this mode.
Trigger Pulse Multiple: Scanning begins when the trigger is pulled and continues after the trigger is released
until the trigger is pulled again or until the "maximum scan on time" is reached or a programmable duration
has elapsed. Reading a label does not disable scanning. "Double read" time-out prevents undesired multiple
reads.
Flashing: The reader flashes on and off regardless of the trigger status. Code reading takes place only during
the flash on time. "Double read" time-out prevents undesired multiple reads.
Always On: The illuminator is always on regardless of the trigger status and the reader is always ready for
code reading. "Double read" time-out prevents undesired multiple reads.
Object Detection: In this mode the scanner looks for scene changes within its field of view to initiate read
attempts. To help the user find the position of the reading line, the green spot can be configured to be on.
When an object’s presence is detected in the scene, the illuminator turns on and turns off the green spot.
Scanning continues until the Object Gone Timeout expires after last read. "Double read" time-out prevents
undesired multiple reads while the scanner is in this mode.
Trigger Object Sense: This is similar to Object Detection. A trigger pull is required to activate the decoder.
NOTE:
See the Product Reference Guide (PRG) for more information.

LED and beeper indications
The scanner’s beeper sounds and its top multi-color LED illuminates to indicate various functions or errors. An
optional “green spot” also performs useful functions. The following tables list these indications. One
exception to the behaviors listed in the tables is that the scanner’s functions are programmable, and so may
or may not be turned on. For example, certain indications such as the power-up beep can be disabled using
programming barcode labels.
