INTRODUCTION
MS9535 VoyagerBT® laser bar code scanner is a new member of Metrologic’s
Voyager series. Besides featuring the patented technologies of an automatic
trigger and CodeGate, the VoyagerBT has incorporated the latest Bluetooth®
wireless technology. This technology gives the customer the freedom of mobility,
with scanning up to 10 meters from the cradle.
VoyagerBT works hand in hand with its cradle. Before normal scanning, the
scanner must establish communications with the cradle by scanning a Bluetooth
address bar code. After communications have been established between the
scanner and cradle, future bar code scans will be transmitted from the scanner to
the cradle and from the cradle to the host. VoyagerBT scanners can also
optionally communicate to other Bluetooth enabled devices.
The cradle of the VoyagerBT also works as a battery charger for the scanner.
When resting in the cradle, the scanner can reach a fully charged state in 2.5
hours. When fully charged, the scanner can provide up to 12,000 scans. For
power saving, the scanner can be put into a full sleep mode by depressing the
CodeGate button for 5 seconds after the laser has shut down. In this mode, the
scanner can remain powered for up to 35 hours before the batteries require
recharging. To wake-up the scanner, simply depress the CodeGate button, and
the scanner will resume normal operation.
VoyagerBT includes the ability to decode Reduced Space Symbology (RSS) bar
codes. VoyagerBT offers checkout personnel the ability to scan bulky items
without the need for unnecessary heavy lifting by customers or checkout
personnel, making for added convenience. It can be used in applications
including supermarkets, hypermarkets, shopping clubs, retailers, light warehouse
and manufacturing.

ESTABLISHING BLUETOOTH COMMUNICATION
Between the Scanner and the Cradle
Bluetooth communication between the scanner and cradle must be
established before the VoyagerBT can be used for normal operation.
Dynamic Pair Function
Dynamic Pair Function refers to when a scanner has been paired or linked to a
specific cradle by scanning that cradle’s unique Bluetooth address code. The
unique address code is located directly on the body of the cradle, see figure
below. To established communication between the scanner and cradle:
1.
Scan the Bluetooth address code located
on the cradle.
2.
Wait 10 seconds.
3.
If successful, the blue LED on the cradle
and the blue LED on the scanner will stop
blinking and stay continuously illuminated.
Figure 11.
It is important to note that the MS9535 will only communicate with a cradle
whose Bluetooth address was the last address scanned. Once a cradle is paired
with the MS9535, another scanner can not be paired with that cradle until the
original connection is broken.
The following steps show how to change existing communication links between
two previously linked scanner/cradle pairs (#1 and #2).
1.
Place scanner #2 into sleep mode by holding down the CodeGate button
for three (3) seconds.
The existing communication links between scanner #2 and cradle
#2 are temporarily broken.
2.
Scan cradle #2’s Bluetooth address code with scanner #1.
The link between cradle #2 and scanner #2 is now permanently
broken.
3.
Scanner #1 has now re-established a communication link with cradle #2.
Any attempt to scan a cradle’s bluetooth code when it is already linked to
an active scanner, not in sleep mode, will result in the scanner razzing to
indicate a communication link is not possible due to existing links.
15
ESTABLISHING BLUETOOTH COMMUNICATION
When the MS9535 Acts as a Client to Other Bluetooth Devices
The MS9535 scanner can also link to other Bluetooth compatible devices such
as a desktop computer, laptop computer, or printer. As a default, the MS9535
will act as the client to another Bluetooth device. The devices’ Bluetooth address
must be scanned to establish a communication link between it and the MS9535
before they will work properly as a complete system. How the communication
link is established depends on the type of Bluetooth address bar code of the
compatible device.
a)
If the Bluetooth address is headed with FNC3 and consists of a 12-digit
3
hex value (e.g. 000CA7FFFF99), scan the address bar code to establish
the communication.
³
b)
0 0 0 C A 7 F F F F 9 9
Example Bluetooth Address with FNC3
If the Bluetooth address is NOT headed with FNC3 but is just a common
12-digit hex value (e.g. 000CA7000118), scan the Get Bluetooth Address
code first, and then scan the address bar code.

ESTABLISHING BLUETOOTH COMMUNICATION
When the MS9535 Acts as a Server to Other Bluetooth
Devices
Scan the Provide Service bar code below to enable the MS9535 to act as a
server and be detected by another Bluetooth device. This will allow other
Bluetooth devices to send inquiries to the scanner and attempt
communication. Use this bar code to establish communication directly with a
Bluetooth enabled device, bypassing the cradle.

THE MI9535-5XX RECEIVER / CHARGER CRADLE
Charging Guidelines and Low Battery Indicators
The scanner should be fully charged prior to being placed into service. Metrologic
recommends that Bluetooth communication between the scanner and the cradle
be established first before charging.
To charge the scanner, place the unit into the cradle. The amber LED on the
scanner will begin to flash indicating the charging process has begun.
For first time installations, leave the scanner in the cradle for a full 3 hours.
Please note that the amber LED on the scanner will stop flashing after 2.5 hours
but it is recommended that the scanner be left in the cradle for an additional 30
minutes to complete the initial 3 hour charge.
Once the initial 3 hour charge is complete, the battery will only require 2.5 hours
to come to a full charge when the unit gives a low power warning. A steady
amber LED on the scanner will indicate the completion of a full charge.
Low Battery Warning
The following items indicate the scanner battery is low and will need to be
recharged.
z
During operation, the scanner gives two beeps after a successful scan.
z
The laser is not activated when a bar code is presented in the scanner’s
IR range and the scanner has automatically entered normal sleep mode
to reserve power.
z
The CodeGate button is pressed, the laser comes on briefly but does
not stay on and the scanner has automatically entered normal sleep
mode to reserve power.
z
The CodeGate button is pressed but the laser does not turn on.
Manufacturer’s Recommendation
If the scanner is not be used for a long period of time, it is recommended that the
unit be placed into normal or full sleep mode to save power.
z
To enable normal sleep mode, scan the configuration bar codes in the
MetroSelect Single-Line Configuration Guide (MLPN 00-02544x).
z
To enable full sleep mode, after the laser shuts off, depress the
CodeGate button and hold for 3 seconds, the scanner will give a long
beep and switch into full sleep mode.
To wake-up the scanner from either mode, depress the CodeGate button.
After an automatic reset, the scanner is ready for normal operation.

RangeGate
The operation range of Bluetooth communication is 10 meters between the
scanner and receiver/cradle. When the scanner is out of Bluetooth operation
range, the communication link with the cradle will break and the blue LED will
start to flash on the scanner. At which time, RangeGate will become active and
the bar codes scanned, while out of Bluetooth range, will be stored in the SRAM
of the scanner instead of being lost. Once communication is re-established, the
stored data will be transmitted to the receiver/cradle and then to the host device.
For the bar codes associated with this mode, please consult the MetroSelect
Single-Line Configuration Guide (MLPN 00-02544x).
Inventory Mode (Specific to MS9535-5M)
For light warehousing applications, Metrologic offers the MS9535-5M VoyagerBT
with extended memory and a unique feature called Inventory Mode. This mode
allows a customer to store approximately 2500 bar codes (length dependent)
with quantity information to facilitate inventory taking. This information can then
be transmitted in batch to the host by scanning a specific bar code or putting the
unit back into the cradle. For the bar codes associated with this mode, please
consult the MetroSelect Single-Line Configuration Guide (MLPN 00-02544x).
21
SCANNER OPERATION
Indicators
Audible
When the scanner is in operation, it provides audible feedback. These sounds
indicate the status of the scanner. Eight settings are available for the tone of the
beeper (normal, 6 alternate tones and no tone). To change the tones, refer to
the MetroSelect Single-Line Configuration Guide (MLPN 00-02544x) or
MetroSet2’s help files.
One Beep
The scanner will beep once after communication has been
established and the unit is properly placed into the cradle.
When the scanner successfully reads a bar code, the scanner’s white
LED will flash and the unit will beep once.
When the CodeGate button is pressed for 3 seconds, the scanner will
indicate it has entered full sleep mode with a extended beep.
Two Beeps
When the scanner has a low battery voltage, it will emit two beeps
after a successful scan and flash the amber LED every 5 seconds.
When there is a Flash ROM upgrade needed, the scanner will beep
twice followed by alternating flashing of the blue and white LEDs.
When communication has been broken between the scanner and
cradle, the scanner will emit two combined high and low tones while
the blue LED flashes.
Three Beeps
When entering configuration mode, the white LED will flash while the
scanner simultaneously beeps three times.
When exiting configuration mode, the scanner will beep three times
and the white LED will stop flashing.
When using single-code-Configuration, the scanner will sound a
3-combination tone (a short pause followed by a high tone and a low
tone). This indicates a single configuration bar code has successfully
configured the scanner.
When scanning a Bluetooth address bar code, the scanner will beep
three times. The scanner’s blue LED will start to flash as it attempts to
establish a communication link. The scanner will emit a 3-combination
tone and the blue LED will stop flashing, staying steadily illuminated
to indicate communication between the scanner and the cradle has
been successfully established.
Razzberry Tones
This tone indicates a type of failure. Refer to “Failure Modes" on
page 25.
22
SCANNER OPERATION
Indicators
Visual
The MS9535 has three LED indicators (blue, white and amber) located on the
head of the scanner. When the scanner is in operation, the flashing or stationary
activity of the LEDs indicates the status of the scanner and the current scan.
Blue, White & Amber LEDs are off
The scanner is not receiving power from the cradle or the scanner’s
internal battery.
The scanner is in full sleep mode. Press the CodeGate button to
wake the scanner from full sleep mode. The blue LED will start to
flash as the unit exits full sleep mode.
Steady Amber
After establishing communication, when the scanner is put into the
cradle and the battery has been fully charged, the amber LED will
remain steady.
If the communication is not established, when the scanner is put into
the cradle, the amber LED will stay on after a short delay.
Steady Blue
When the laser is active, the blue LED is illuminated. The blue LED
will remain illuminated until the laser is deactivated.
Steady Blue and Single White Flash
When the scanner successfully reads a bar code, the white LED will
flash, the blue LED remains steady and the scanner will beep once.
If the scanner reads the bar code successfully at a relatively long
distance but still within the 10-meter operation range, the white LED
may flash after a short delay.
Steady Blue and Steady White
After a successful scan, the scanner transmits the data to the cradle.
If the cradle is not ready to accept the information, the scanner’s
white LED will remain on until the data can be transmitted or until a
communication time-out occurs.
23
SCANNER OPERATION
Indicators
Visual
Alternating Flashing of Blue and White
This indicates the scanner is in configuration mode. Two razzberry
tones indicate that an invalid bar code has been scanned while in this
mode.
If the scanner is in RangeGate active mode, this indicates the SRAM
of the scanner becomes full.
If the scanner needs to have a Flash ROM upgrade, the alternating
flashing of the blue and white LEDs will occur during startup and is
accompanied by three beeps.
Steady White, Blue off
This indicates the laser is off and the scanner is still waiting for
communication from the cradle.
Flashing Blue
The blue LED on the scanner and the cradle indicates the
“connecting” status of the cradle with the scanner. When the
Bluetooth connection breaks, the blue LED will flash. This indicates
the scanner is trying to establish communication with the cradle.
A single blue flash on the cradle indicates data has been received
from the scanner.
Flashing Amber
When scanner is in the cradle, a flashing amber LED indicates the
scanner is being charged.
When the scanner is out of cradle, a flashing amber LED indicates the
scanner has low battery power and needs recharging.
24
SCANNER OPERATION
Indicators
Failure Modes
Flashing Blue and one Razzberry Tone
This indicates the scanner has experienced a laser sub-system
failure. Return the unit for repair to an authorized service center.
Flashing Blue and White with Two Razzberry Tones
This indicates the scanner has experienced a scanning mechanism
failure. Return the unit for repair to an authorized service center.
Continuous Razzberry Tone with all LEDs off
If the scanner emits a continuous razzberry tone upon power-up, the
scanner has experienced an electronic failure. Return the unit for
repair to an authorized service center.
Three Beeps – on power up
If the scanner beeps 3 times on power-up then the non-volatile
memory (NovRAM) that holds the scanner configuration has failed. If
the scanner does not respond after reconfiguring, return the scanner
for repair to an authorized service center.
Two Razzberry Tones with Steady White
When the scanner scans a bar code without establishing Bluetooth
communication first, the scanner will emit two razzberry tones and the
white LED will stay steadily lit.
The scanner reads a bar code but the cradle fails to transmit the data
Long Beeps with Steady Amber LED
The scanner will emit a long beep every 5 second indicating the
scanner's contacts are not making a physical connection with the
charging contacts on the cradle.
Proper placement of the scanner in the cradle is essential for the
charging process. .

UPGRADING THE FLASH ROM FIRMWARE
The MetroSet 2 program also allows the user of a Metrologic scanner to quickly
upgrade to a new or custom version of software. It requires the use of a personal
computer running under Windows 95 or greater and the use of a communication
port. The user merely connects the scanner’s cradle to a communication port on
the PC, launches the MetroSet 2 program, and blasts off to new software
upgrades.
Each MS9535 and its cradle, regardless of the version number or communication
protocol, can be upgraded. In other words, all RS232/Light Pen (-41),
keyboard wedge (-47), Low Speed USB (-38), Full Speed USB (C40), Full Speed
USB (D40), and IBM 468X/469X (-11) units can be upgraded. To upgrade all
units, an RS232 cable (MLPN 54-54000B-N) is required. Communication between
the scanner and the cradle must be established before upgrading the flash ROM
within the scanner.
The upgrades and custom software versions will be supplied by Metrologic in
files called Motorola S-record files. These files contain all the information needed
to upgrade the scanner. Simply add this file to the working directory or retrieve
the file from its current location.
The program guides the user with a simplistic one click approach. The user must
first select the file. Once selected and verified, the file is ready to be used in the
upgrade. Press the button to start the upgrading. Contact a Metrologic customer
service representative for additional details on upgrading flash ROM firmware.
CONFIGURATION MODES
The MS9535 VoyagerBT has 3 configuration modes.
Bar Codes
VoyagerBT can be configured by scanning the bar codes in the MetroSelect
Single-Line Configuration Guide (MLPN 00-02544x). Please refer to this
guide for instructions. The MetroSelect Single-Line Configuration Guide can
be downloaded for FREE from Metrologic’s website (www.metrologic.com).
MetroSet2
This user-friendly Windows-based configuration program allows you to
simply ‘point-and-click’ at the desired scanner options. This program can be
downloaded for FREE from Metrologic’s website (www.metrologic.com), or
set-up disks can be ordered by calling 1-800-ID-METRO.
Serial Program Mode
This method is only valid when RS232 cradles are used. It basically
simulates the scanning of the configuration bar codes, but through the serial
port. Serial Program Mode is described in detail in the MetroSelect SingleLine Configuration Guide (MLPN 00-02544x).
