Bluetooth Function Setting
Pairing With PC/Notebook For The First Time
PC (HID mode)
Following steps are based on Microsoft Windows 7.
1. Use MS920 to scan barcode “HID”.
2. Open Devices and Printers by clicking the Start button , and then, on the
Start menu, clicking Devices and Printers.
3. Click Add a device, and then follow the instructions.
4. Click the Bluetooth enabled device (Unitech BT XXXXXX) you want to add
to your computer, and then click Next. If you don't see the device you want
to add, make sure the device is turned on and discoverable. If you just
turned on the device, it may take Windows several seconds to detect it.
For Bluetooth 2.0 (or lower) pairing, you have to use MS 920 to scan function
barcodes and numerical “Bluetooth Pincode” according to the direction shown
on the screen of the PC the MS 920 is pairing to during the pairing procedure.
Numerical barcodes and other function barcodes for Bluetooth Pincode entry
are listed on the reverse side of this sheet.

Symbologies
- Symbology = bar code type or family (e.g. Code 39, UPC, EAN).
- Activate the symbologies you need and modify the settings for your
symbologies if required.
- To optimize performance, only activate symbologies you need !!! (deactivate
the Code 39 and EAN/UPC default symbologies if you don't need them.
Disable all symbologies
- Deactivates all the symbologies activated.
- Use the "not active" options to deactivate individual symbologies.
- Does not reset individual parameter settings for each symbology (when
you reactivate a symbology, you recover the parameter settings stored in
memory for that symbology when it was disabled - use reset factory defaults
to reset all the symbology parameters to their factory default settings).

Check digit
check digit verification
- AIM has a recommended check character for Codabar
- Each Codabar data character (including Start/Stop) has a value assigned to
it:
0=0 1=1 2=2 3=3 4=4 5=5 6=6 7=7 8=8 9
= 9 - = 10 $ = 11 : = 12 / = 13 , = 14 + = 15 A = 16 B = 17 C = 18
D = 19
- The values are added and the check is calculated:
check = [(next multiple of 16) - (sum of assigned AIM values)]
Example
data characters: A01234B
AIM values = 16 + 0 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 17: 43
next multiple of 16: check = 48 - 43: 5

- These are pre-defined trigger settings used to quickly set up your scanner.
- If you are using a pre-defined mode, do not set the other Scanning/triggering

- Lighting and decoding are on when the trigger line is activated (trigger
pressed) and off when the trigger line is deactivated (trigger released).
Level (*)
Pulse
- Lighting and decoding are on when the trigger line is activated (trigger
pressed) and stay on until a period of inactivity lasting the time specified by
the trigger timeout.
- After the timeout lighting and decoding are turned off.
Pulse
Flashing
- At power up the lighting and decoding are on (no need to activate the trigger
line) and after a period of inactivity lasting the time specified by the trigger
timeout, the scanner starts flashing, checking for a bar code to be read.
- 79 -
- When a bar code is detected, the lighting and decoding automatically turn on
and stay on until another period of inactivity (timeout), after the timeout the
scanner starts flashing again.
Flashing
Autostand
- Autostand triggering mode switches from Level to Flashing (1D models) or
Presentation (2D models).
- At power up the scanner is in Flashing or Presentation trigger mode (no need
to activate the trigger line). You can put a bar code in front of the scanner and
it will be scanned.
- To switch to Level activate the trigger line (press the trigger). You can scan
bar codes by pulling the trigger.
- When in Level trigger mode, after a period of inactivity lasting the time
specified by the trigger timeout, the scanner switches back to Flashing mode.
Autostand
Toggle
- Aimer and decoding is on when trigger line is activated. Activating the trigger
line again turns the aimer and decoding off.

Presentation
- At power up lighting and decoding are on.
- After a period of inactivity lasting the time specified by the trigger timeout, the
lighting turns off or is dimmed (depending on the scanner used).
- When a new bar code is presented the lighting and decoding restart and stay
on until another period inactivity.

- The trigger can be used in Presentation mode - when you pull the trigger the
scanner functions as if it were in Level mode.
- Only available with 2D models.
Presentation
Presentation threshold
- Only available on 2D models.
- Use this setting when in Presentation Triggering mode to regulate how

- When enabled the scanner reads only the bar code that the laser aimer is
aimed at.
- This is helpful when reading bar codes that are positioned close together.

Tolerance
- The tolerance level for center decoding allows you to aim the laser close to
the bar code to be read rather than be positioned on the bar code.
- 0 = No tolerance (laser aimer must be positioned on the bar code to be read),
100 = most permissive (laser aimer can be positioned beside the bar code to
be read).
No tolerance (*)
Compose (%):
Bar code sequence
- Bar code sequence allows you to read up to 10 bar codes with one trigger
pull. This is useful when reading several bar codes placed closely together
and without re-reading the same code twice.
- For example, if set to 2, pull the trigger once and scan both codes. The
scanner beeps for each code that is decoded (2). If "turn off after good read"
is enabled the scanner turns off AFTER the last bar code in the sequence is
read.
- Compose the number of bar codes for the sequence.

Data editing
- IMPORTANT [[[[ The data editing function is only available with STCDecode
version 1.1.5.0 or later ]]]]
- Your product can edit the data it receives before it transmits it to the host
system.
- Define up to 7 input scenarios to intercept the data you want to edit.
- 104 -
- The order in which you define the scenarios is important (the product
compares incoming data with each scenario in turn and edits the data for the
first matching scenario it finds).
1.Activate the scenario(s) you want the product to detect.
2.Define the input data you want to intercept for editing (any combination of
input type, input length, input mask).
3.Define the actions (editing) you want to apply to this input:
- Select a scenario
- Define the Action list (editing) for the selected scenario
- Make sure that the input scenarios you define actually correspond to
incoming data conditions:
-Correct input type ('all' = all input types)
-Correct input length ('0' = all input lengths)
-Correct input mask (no value = all input character combinations)
Activate the scenario
- Activate the scenario(s) you want the product to detect.
- The combination of input type (symbology, ...), input length and input mask
defines which data you want to intercept for editing.
