Laser Safety

The laser scanner complies with safety standard IEC 60825-1 for a Class I laser produce.

It also complies with CDRH as applicable to a Class IIa laser product. Avoid long term staring into direct laser light.

Radiant Energy

: The laser scanner uses one low-power visible laser diodes operating at

650nm in an opto-mechanical scanner resulting in less than 3.9μW radiated power as observed through a 7mm aperture and averaged over 10 seconds.

Do not attempt to remove the protective housing of the scanner, as unscanned laser light with a peak output up to 0.8mW would be accessible inside.

Laser Light Viewing

: The scan window is the only aperture through which laser light may be observed from 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 or alteration of this product. Do not remove the protective housing of the scanner. There are no user-serviceable parts inside.

Optical

: The use of optical instruments with this product will increase the eye hazard.

Optical instruments include binoculars, magnifying glasses, and microscopes but do not include normal eye glasses worn by the user.

CAUTION: Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than those specified herein may result in hazardous radiation exposure.

4. Installing the Device

4.1 Using Suction Cup

The device is designed with a cupulate stand, and easily sucks to any smooth surface without making any damage. It is most suggested to place on glass surface for best and firmest suction result, or use the transparent self adhesive mylar provided in package if your counter top is not 100% smooth.

To install the device, you need to:

1. Clean the counter top and make sure the surface is smooth and dry.

2. Adhesive the mylar on top of the counter (ignore this step if the counter top is made with glass or very smooth).

3. Attached the cupula in position, and press down the device to squeeze out the air in the suction cup. (shown in Figure 2)

4. Press down the lever to secure device on the surface.

(shown in Figure 3 step

)

5. Raise the lever to release the suction cup from the surface. (shown in Figure 3 step

) a. The mylar is 145mm in diameter self-adhesive for easy attachment, when stick onto surface, be careful and prevent bubble enters inside. b. The suction cup uses the vacuum theory to hold on to the surface. If the surface is not smooth or cupulate is damaged or dirty, air could go into the suction cup and the cupulate will lost its function.

Figure 2: Place cupula in position and hold firmly with one hand.

6. Connection

6.1 Interface Cable

The interface cable comes with different host-end connectors, and there are 3 standard types of interface connection that this device supports:

(a) Keyboard

(b) RS-232 wedge

(c) HID USB interface

**Refer to Connector and Pin our section for pin-out configuration of each interface available

Insert the cable to device

Follow as illustrated in Figure 6 to insert the RJ-45 connector side of cable into the device. A clear “click” sound is heard if the cable is properly inserted.

Figure 6: Interface cable connection

Release the cable from device

Gently face down the device, and use a flat tool insert at Point 1 in Figure 7 then gently pull out the cable at the direction indicated at Point 2.

Figure 7: Replaceable interface cable

7

6.2 Connecting to the Host

Follow the steps below to connect the interface cable to the host.

1. Make sure the power of the host system is off.

2. Connect the host-end of the interface cable to the appropriate connector on the host system.

3. For those cases where external power is used, plug the external AC power adapter into the jack on the interface cable.

4. Turn on the host system.

6.3 Power Connection

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.

The scanner requires a minimum of 1.35W 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.

To ensure steady performance, the host system should be capable to supply a minimum of 260mA of current @ 5VDC. Unless you are sure your POS system can handle such loading, it is recommended that you use the qualified power adapter. When an external adapter is connected, the scanner will automatically switch off the direct power from host to scanner.

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.

Follow the steps below when you need an external power connection to the scanner:

1. Connect the interface cable to the bottom of the scanner (shown in

Figure 6).

2. Connect the other end of the interface cable to the host (refer to your host manual to locate the correct port).

3. Plug the power supply into the power jack on the interface cable.

4. Plug the other end of the power supply into an AC outlet.

8

6.4 Verifying Scanner Operation

Please follow the procedure below to verify scanning operation.

1. Insert the modular plug of the Interface cable into the back of the scanner until a firm click is heard.

2. If necessary, plug the power adapter into the jack on the interface cable.

3. Plug the AC end of the power adapter into an AC outlet, or plug the other end of cable into host if power adapter is not needed. When power is supplied, the scanner powers up, the speaker sounds four beeps and the LED indicator glows.

4. Present a known-good test barcode to the scanner. The scanner should issue a short beep and the LED should flash red momentarily.

1. If the scanner is connected to a USB for this test, it should read one barcode, beep and then remain a red LED indicating light. This is normal when the USB is not connected to a live host terminal. If the initial interface of the scanner is in keyboard wedge, and it only reads one barcode and remains with a green LED indicating light, this is because the scanner is not connected to a host terminal.

2. 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 Troubleshooting section.

9

7 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 in the

Programming Guide.

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 settings like set headers and trailers.

Individual parameters may be set at any time without affecting the other parameters.

7.1 Scan Test

1. With the scanner running (blue LED lights) and the host system on, try to scan several known-good barcodes.

2. Check the results on the POS screen. If the scanner is reading okay, it is likely that no further setup is necessary.

3. If the POS screen does not show the expected scans, go to the Set Up section below.

7.2 Set Up

1. When the scanner is powered on (blue LED lights), find the <Enter/Exit programming mode> barcode in the Programming Guide and present this barcode to the scanner. When the scanner gives two beeps (one low and one high) and the LED turns red, it means the scanner is in programming mode.

2. Decide which parameters are required and find their barcodes in the

Programming Guide.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. Test again with known-good barcodes. If results are good, you are done setting up. Otherwise, return to step 1 and try again.

10

8 How to Scan in Different Mode

The device is an omnidirectional presentation scanner with a 5 directional scan field with a 20 lines scan pattern. The scan volume extends approximately 20cm

(8”) in front of the scan window. Barcode labels can be easily read when presented towards the scanning window. The scanner’s scan volume is illustrated as Figure 8.

Figure 8: Scan volume

The scanner can also read barcodes in single-line mode to accommodate different requirements, usually for better aiming on the specific barcode on the same sheet of more than one barcode printed closely.

8.1 Presentation Mode

In this mode, the front scan window is in multi-line scan pattern and the scanner reads barcodes easily as the barcode approaches with the scanning field.

Figure 9: Presentation mode

The adjustable stand allows to be tilted forwards and backwards in position when scanning various sized objects.

11

8.2 Single Line Scan Mode

In this mode the scanner can emit a single line pattern for users to handheld scanning of hard-to-read or multiple barcodes on one object. Sales clerks can switch it to single line scan option simply by pressing one button.

Button

Figure 10: Single-line switch button

1. Press down the trigger button and a line pattern would appear. It allows you to aim at the barcode.

Ensure the scan line crosses every bar and space of the symbol.

2. Press the button to decode the barcode. One beep indicates a good read.

Figure 11: Single-line scanning

3. Release the button and laser beam would remain single line for seconds. To read other barcode, you have to repeat step 2 and 3.

4. After about 5 seconds, the multi-line scan pattern is displayed and the scanner returns to the multi line scan mode.

5. Press down again to switch to single-line scan when necessary.

12

9 Sleep Mode

After the scanner has been inactive for a period of time, the laser and the motor would automatically turn off and the scanner would enter the sleep mode. The blue LED would blink as indication.

It takes 2 steps to enter the sleep mode. The first step is the laser switching off after 10 minutes; the second step is the motor switching off after 30 minutes. The time period is programmable.

To wake up the scanner, present an object close to the scan window, or press the trigger button.

Figure 12: IR detecting range

The scanner includes a motion sensor that detects activity in front of the scan window. The detecting distance is about 10cm (3.9 inch) from the scan window while in condition with effectiveness of environment lights.

The detecting distance is also programmable.

13

10 LED Indications
