Programming Commands

Configuration
2.1
Programming Commands
The IDM scanner bar code commands are specially designed proprietary bar code labels which allow you to
set the IDM Scanner’s internal programming parameters. There are System Command, Family Code and
Option Code for programming purpose.
Each programmable family and bar code command label is listed on the same page with major system
commands. The detailed explanations and special programming flowchart are printed on facing or following
pages. The Option Codes and System Commands can be found in the appendix on page 83 and 84.
2.1.1 System Command
The System Command is the highest level bar code command which directs the IDM Scanner to perform
immediate operations, such as entering programming mode (PROGRAM), exiting programming mode (EXIT),
listing system information (SYSLIST), recovering to factory preset configurations (M_DEFAULT) and so on.
Please note that all system commands will take a few seconds to complete the operations. User must wait for
the completion beeps before scanning another bar code.
2.1.2 Family Code
The Family Code is scanned to select the user desired programming family. IDM Scanner has already provided
more than one hundred programming families to meet any specific requirements.
2.1.3 Option Code
The Option Codes is a set of bar code commands represented by “0–9”, “A–F” and finishing selection (FIN).
For most setting, you must select at least one option code following the family code selection to set the
desired parameter for the selected programming family. The Option Codes can be found on page 83.
2.2
Programming Procedures
As you scan the bar code command to select the desired parameters, information about the final selected
parameters represented by the bar code commands are stored in the Hand-held scanner’s internal Flash
Memory ASIC or non-volatile memory. If you turn off the unit, the Flash Memory ASIC or non-volatile memory
retains all programming options. You don’t need to re-program the IDM Scanner if you want to keep the
existing configurations in the next power on.
The programming procedures of the IDM Scanner are designed as simple as possible for ease of setting. Most
programming families take the “Single Scan Selection” programming procedure. But several programming
families have more complex and flexible programmable options, and you must take “Multiple Scan Selection”,
“Cycling Scan Selection” or “Dual Level Selection” to complete their programming procedures. Each kind of
programming procedure is listed in the following pages for your reference. Please give careful attention to
become familiar with each programming procedure.

Please note that the IDM Scanner will take 3-4 seconds to store parameters in internal Flash Memory
ASIC or non-volatile memory after you scan the “END”. Please don’t turn off the power before the
completion beeping. It may destroy all configured parameters.

The scanner offers four levels of decode security for Code 39 bar codes:
 Level 0: If you are experiencing misread of poorly-printed or serious out-of-spec. bar codes in level 1
please select level 0.
 Level 1: If you are experiencing misread of poorly-printed or out-of-spec. bar codes in level 2, please
select level 1.
 Level 2: This is the default setting which allows the scanner to operate fastest, while providing
sufficient security in decoding “in-spec” Code 39 bar codes.
 Level 3: If you failed to read poorly-printed or out-of-spec. bar codes in level 2, please select level 3.
This is the most aggressive setting and may increase the misread.



Level 1: This is the default setting which allows the scanner to operate fastest, while providing
sufficient security in decoding “in-spec” UPC/EAN bar codes.
Level 2: If you are experiencing misread of poorly-printed, soiled or damage bar codes in level 1,
please select level 2. This is the most aggressive setting and may increase the misread.
Supplement Scan Voting
The Supplement Scan Voting is the number of times the same UPC/EAN with 2/5 supplement digits has to be
decoded before it is transmitted. It is helpful when decoding a mix of UPC/EAN symbols with and without
supplement digits. This function is effective when you select UPC/EAN with only 2 supplement digits,
UPC/EAN with only 5 supplement digits or UPC/EAN with 2/5 supplement digits. The default value is Level 3.
When you select a higher level, it may impact the reading speed on poorly-printed, low contrast or damaged
barcode labels.

Intermessage Delay: is a time delay between messages outputted by the Hand-held scanner. Increasing this
delay will help host applications to process the incoming data on time.
Intercharacter Delay: is a time delay between data characters outputted by the Hand-held scanner. These two
parameters are used to synchronize data communication when: 1) the data transmission speed is too fast,
characters may be skipped; 2) multitasking operation system or host computers in a network may slow down
the keyboard handling; 3) various notebook or desktop PC systems require different timing parameter
settings. It is recommended to always add one extra unit as safety margin when adjusting these two
parameters.
Interfunction Delay: is a time delay of between transmission and reception of each segment of the message

Option Code
USB COM doesn’t support RTS/CTS handshaking protocol.
When the RTS/CTS Hardware Handshaking option is selected, the RTS (request to send) and CTS
(clear to send) signals will be issued before normal data communication. This option is very helpful to
ensure the reliability of data communication.
When the ACK/NAK Software Handshaking option is selected, the Hand-held scanner waits for an
ACK (acknowledge) or NAK (not acknowledge) from the host computer after each data transmission. If
the NAK is received, the Hand-held scanner will re-send the data until receiving ACK.
NAK Retry Count
After transmitting data, the scanner expects a NAK response from the host up to the preset “Serial Response
Time-out”. If the scanner doesn’t get a response, the scanner will issue an error indication and discard the
data. When a NAK is received, the scanner transmits the same data again and waits for either an ACK or NAK.
The scanner issues an error indication and discards the data under following two conditions:
1. After preset NAK retry counts is received within the preset serial response time-out.
2. If the preset time-out is up but the preset NAK retry counts haven’t come to the end.
The default retry counts are three times. If you program “0 times”, the scanner will not resend the data to the
host when the scanner receives a NAK. The scanner will discard the data. If you program “255 times”, the
scanner can receive unlimited NAKs from the host within the pre-set serial response time-out.
This function is not available for batch mode. When you enable this function in on-line mode, the out-of-range
function will be disabled automatically.

Low Power Mode (Low Power Triggering)
The scanner goes into idle state after scanning the barcode. You must press the trigger to wake up the
scanner for operation. It is very helpful for mobile data collection and applications, which are concerned with
power saving.
Trigger Mode (External Triggering)
The scanner goes into standby state after scanning the barcode. You must press the trigger to turn on the
light source of the scanner before scanning the bar code.
Presentation Mode (Auto Detection)
Presentation mode uses ambient light to detect the barcodes. The light source is off until the scanner detects
an image which is similar to a barcode. Then the light source turns on automatically to read the bar code. If
the light level in the room is not high enough, Presentation Mode may not work properly. You can choose
different level of “Presentation Sensitivity” to meet your application’s requirements. (Please refer to the
setting of “Presentation Sensitivity” on page 68.)
Alternative Mode (Periodic Power Off)
The scanner keeps the light source of the scanner turned on till the pre-defined light source on time is up.
After the scanner turns off the light source, you must press the trigger to turn on the light source again. After
each good read, the timer counter of “Light Source on Time” is reset. For you do not have to press the trigger
frequently it is very convenient for multiple scanning.

Flash Mode (Pulse Driven Reading)
The scanner flashes the light source of the scanner without using the trigger. If the scanner detects an image
which is similar to a barcode, the scanner forces on the light source automatically and scans the barcode.
Flash Duty Cycle adjustment can change the frequency of the blinking.
Force Mode (Continued Power On)
The light source of the scanner is forced on for continued operation without pressing the trigger button. This
mode is convenient for high speed bar code reading.
Toggle Mode (Repeat Reading)
The toggle mode is very similar to the Alternative Mode but without the pre-defined light source on time
concern. You must press the trigger to turn on the light source of the scanner to scan. The scanner keeps the
light source turned on until you press the trigger again.
Diagnostic Mode (Test Reading)
This operation mode is specifically designed for diagnostic purposes. When this operation mode is selected,
the light source of the scanner is force on without regard for other programmable parameters, such as reread
delay, redundancy, and so forth.
Level Mode (Auto Power Off)
When this operation mode is selected, the scanner continues to turn on the light source of the scanner before
a good read or pre-defined “Light Source on Time”. If the scanner decodes a barcode successfully, it turns off
the light source immediately. After the scanner turns off the light source, you must press the trigger to turn on
the light source again. If there is no scanning operation performed during the pre-defined light source on time,
the scanner enters the idle state after the pre-defined light source on time is up.

Scan Rate Control
The scanner will have better motion tolerance when you select “Fixed” scan rate. It’s suitable for applications
which need higher motion tolerance on the move. But this may impact to the reading distance.
Flash Duty Cycle
The Flash Duty Cycle is designed to control the flashing frequency of the light source.

2.11.3 Data Verifier Settings
The Data Verifier is used to provide advanced verification for error-free scanning and to work as an Embedded
Data Transmitting Filter. All data must conform to the Identified Barcode Symbologies, Identified Data Length,
and one to three Identified Characters in the checking position. Otherwise, the Hand-held scanner will not
transmit the data to the host computers or terminals, but will instead issue 3 long beeps for verification error
and skip the scanned data. The Data Verifier checks only scanned data without Preamble, Postamble, STX,
ETX, Data Length, Prefix/Suffix Symbology ID or Record Suffix. Regarding the “Bar Code Selection” and
“Position Calculation” of Data Verifier, please refer to page 74 and 75 for details. All “Character” input should
be referred to the ASCII/HEX Table listed in the Appendix (page 79) to find matched HEX value.

2.11.8 Application Example
If your bar code label is a 16-digit Interleaved 2 of 5 which includes the information of 6-digit date code, 6digit serial number and 4-digit unit price, you want the Hand-held scanner to do the following for you without
software modification:
 Apply only Interleaved 2 of 5 to the condensed DataWizard.
 Check bar code is actually with 16-digit length.
 Allow bar code output whose date code is leading with “9”.
 Three outputs with “TAB” suffix.
 The date code output should skip “9” and replaced it by “A”.
 The serial number output should be led with “SN”.
 The unit price output should be skipped the first 2 digits.
 Test Bar Code : 9 8 1 0 2 5 1 2 3 4 5 6 9 8 7 6
 Actual Output : A81025[TAB]SN123456[TAB]76[TAB]
Programming Procedure
