Power
The scanner requires a minimum of 2.5W at 5 VDC power.
The interface cable that comes with the scanner supports
both direct power (where the scanner takes power from the
host machine) and external power (that’s what the supplied
power adapter is for). A sufficiently robust POS system
can support a scanner successfully without external power;
a POS system with a barely adequate power supply may
produce erratic performance (either of the POS system
itself, or of the scanner, or both) when a scanner is attached.
Unless you are sure your POS system can candle such
loading, it is recommended that you use the supplied power
adapter. When an external adapter is connected, the
scanner does not take power from the host.
The scanner turns on when power is supplied, and turns off
when power is removed. There is no on/off switch on the
scanner itself.
Use only an AC/DC power adapter approved for the
scanner. Use of other power supplies may cause damage
to the scanner, and void the factory warranty.

power adapter is not needed. The scanner powers
up, the buzzer sounds four beeps and the LED
indicator glows.
Present a known-good test barcode to the scanner.
The scanner should issue a short beep and the LED
should flash red momentarily. [if the scanner is
connected to a USB for this test, it should read one
barcode, beep, then remain with a red LED indicating
light. This is normal when the USB is not connected
to a live host terminal.]
Note: if the scanner does not produce any beeps, or
produces the wrong beeps, or the LED does not light up,
remove the power connection and refer to the section on
Troubleshooting.

Connecting to the Host
The interface cable comes with different host-end
connectors, depending on the host. Follow the steps
below to connect the interface cable to the host.

Make sure that the power of the host system is off.
Connect the host end of the interface cable to the
appropriate connector on the host system.
For those cases where external power is used, plug
the external AC power adapter into the jack on the
interface cable.
Turn on the host system.

Setting up the Scanner
In certain cases no setup is required. The scanner is
either pre-programmed to suit the situation, or it
automatically detects and is ready to go. In other cases
the scanner must be informed about what kind of system it
is connected to. This can be done in a few moments using
the programming barcodes enclosed in the later sections of
this booklet.
The programming section may be used to set a number of
parameters on the scanner: communication interface type
(RS-232, Keyboard, USB), beep tone, sleep mode timings,
same-code delay time, enable/disable decoding of
numerous code types, and more advanced things like set
headers and trailers.
Individual parameters may be set at any time without
affecting the other parameters.

Scan Test
With the scanner running (LED blue) and the host
system on, try to scan several known-good
barcodes.
Check the results on the POS screen. If the
scanner is reading okay, no further setup may be
necessary.
If the POS screen does not show the expected scans,
go to Set Up, below.
Set Up
When the scanner is powered on (LED blue), present the
<Enter/Exit programming mode> barcode, found in the
programming section, to the scanner. The scanner gives
two beeps: low and high, and the LED turn red. The
7
scanner is in programming mode.
Decide which parameters are required and find their
barcodes in the programming section.
Cover unwanted codes with your hand and present the
desired codes, one by one, to the scanner, the scanner
beeps once as it accepts each code.
When done, again present the <Enter/Exit programming
mode> barcode. The scanner beeps twice, once long and
once short, and the LED returns to blue. The scanner has
been programmed.
Test again with known-good barcodes. If results are good,
you are done setting up. Otherwise, return to step 1 and
try again.

Operating the Scanner
The scanner can read barcodes in either omnidirectional or
single-line mode to accommodate different requirements.
This scanner is truly omnidirectional while single-line mode
is usually used for better aiming on the specific barcode on
the same sheet of more than one barcode printed closely.
6-1 Single Line Scan Mode
In this mode the scanner can emit a single line pattern for
user to handheld scanning of hard to read or multiple
barcodes on one object, sales clerks could switch it to
single line scan option simply by pressing one button.
