Fast commissioning / operating principle
Below you will find a short description for the initial commissioning of the BCL 508i. Detailed
explanations for all listed points can be found throughout this technical description.
3.1
Mounting the BCL 508i
The BCL 508i barcode readers can be mounted in two different ways:
• Using two M4x6 screws on the rear of the device or using four M4x6 screws on the
bottom of the device.
• Using a BT 56 mounting device on the two fastening grooves.
3.2
Device arrangement and selection of the mounting location
• Size, orientation, and position tolerance of the barcodes on the objects to be
scanned.
• The reading field of the BCL 508i in relation to the barcode module width.
• The resulting minimum and maximum reading distance from the respective reading
field (see chapter 5.5 "Reading field curves / optical data").
• The permissible line lengths between the BCL 508i and the host system depending
on which interface is used.
• The correct time for data output. The BCL 508i should be positioned in such a way
that, taking into consideration the time required for data processing and the conveyor
belt speed, there is sufficient time to e.g. initiate sorting operations on the basis of the
read data.
• The display and control panel should be very visible and accessible.
• For configuring and commissioning with the webConfig tool, the USB interface should
be easily accessible.
For specific information, please refer to chapter 4.4.
Notice!
The beam exits the BCL 508i as follows for the respective devices:
- line scanner parallel to the housing base
- oscillating mirror and deflection mirror perpendicular to the housing base
The black areas in figure 6.1 are the housing base. The best read results are obtained when:
• The BCL 508i is mounted in such a way that the scanning beam is incident on the
barcode at an angle of inclination greater than ±10° … 15° to vertical.
• The reading distance lies in the middle area of the reading field.
• The barcode labels are of good print quality and have good contrast ratios.
• You do not use high-gloss labels.
• There is no direct sunlight.

Connections of the BCL 508i
Voltage supply and switching inputs/outputs
The voltage supply (10 … 30VDC) is connected at the PWR M12 connector.
Available at both the PWR M12 connector as well as at the SW IN/OUT M12 socket are four
freely programmable switching inputs/outputs for custom adaptation to the respective
application. Detailed information on this topic can be found in chapter 7.2.
Standalone operation in Ethernet network
During stand-alone operation of the BCL 508i, the host interface of the primary system is
connected to HOST/BUS IN. Thus, a star structure (Ethernet structure) is possible. Please
be certain to select the correct protocol for the connected components.
Network operation in Ethernet network
In network operation, the primary system (PC/PLC) is connected to the host interface of the
BCL 508i. With the aid of the "switch" integrated in the BCL 508i, the bus connection to the
next participant, e.g. a BCL 508i, can occur directly via the BUS OUT socket!
Notice!
The BCL 508i does not have its own built-in DHCP server. Please make certain that each
participant in the Ethernet has its own unique IP address. This can be set by a DHCP server
in the primary system or through manual address assignment.

Defining Ethernet host communication
The Ethernet host communication enables the configuration of connections to an external
host system. Both UDP as well as TCP/IP (in either client or server mode) can be used. The
connection-free UDP protocol is used primarily to transfer process data to the host (monitor
operation). The connection-oriented TCP/IP protocol can also be used to transfer
commands from the host to the device. With this connection, the data is backed up by the
TCP/IP protocol itself.
If you would like to use the TCP/IP protocol, you must also define whether the BCL 508i is
to operate as a TCP client or as a TCP server.
Both protocols can be activated simultaneously and used in parallel.
ª Contact your network administrator to determine which communication protocol is used.

Fast commissioning / operating principle
3.5.1
TCP/IP
ª Activate the TCP/IP protocol
ª Set the TCP/IP mode of the BCL 508i
In TCP client mode, the BCL 508i actively establishes the connection to the primary host
system (PC / PLC as server). The BCL 508i requires from the user the IP address of the
server (host system) and the port number on which the server (host system) accepts a
connection. In this case, the BCL 508i determines when and with whom a connection is
established!
ª With a BCL 508i as TCP client, also set the following values:
•
•
•
•
IP address of the TCP server (normally the PLC/host computer)
Port number of the TCP server
Timeout for the wait time for an answer from the server
Repetition time for renewed communication attempt following a timeout
In TCP server mode, the primary host system (PC / PLC) actively establishes the connection and the connected BCL 508i waits for the connection to be setup. The TCP/IP stack
requires information from the user regarding the local port of the BCL 508i (port number) on
which the connection requests of a client application (host system) are to be accepted. If
there is a connection request and a connection is established by the primary host system
(PC / PLC as client), the BCL 508i (server mode) accepts the connection. Data can then be
sent and received.
ª With a BCL 508i as TCP server, also set the following values:
• Port number for the communication of the BCL 508i with the TCP client
The corresponding adjustment options can be found:
• Via webConfig:
Configuration -> Communication -> Host communication
3.5.2
UDP
The BCL 508i requires from the user the IP address and the port number of the communication partner. Correspondingly, the host system (PC / PLC) now also requires the set IP
address of the BCL 508i and the selected port number. By assigning these parameters, a
socket is formed via which the data can be sent and received.
ª Activate the UDP protocol
ª Also set the following values:
• IP address of the communication partner
• Port number of the communication partner
The corresponding adjustment options can be found:
• Via webConfig:

The read information appears in the display and is simultaneously passed on to the primary
system (PLC or PC).
Please check the incoming data of the barcode information there.
Alternatively, you can connect a photoelectric sensor or a 24 V DC switching signal to the
SW IN/OUT socket for read activation. To do this, however, you must appropriately
configure the switching input (see chapter 7.2.3 "SW IN/OUT – Switching input/switching

About the barcode readers of the BCL 500i series
Barcode readers of the BCL 500i series are high-speed scanners with integrated decoder
for all commonly used barcodes, e.g. 2/5 Interleaved, Code 39, Code 128, EAN 8/13 etc.,
as well as codes from the RSS family.
Barcode readers of the BCL 500i series are available in various optics models as well as line
scanners, line scanners with deflection mirrors, oscillating mirrors and also optionally as
heated models.

The extensive options for device configuration via display or software enable adaptation to
a multitude of reading tasks. Due to the large reading distance combined with the great
depth of field and a very compact construction, the device is ideally suited for package and
pallet transportation systems. In general, the barcode readers of the BCL 500i series are
designed for the conveyor and storage technology market.
The interfaces (RS 232, RS 485 and RS 422) integrated in the various device models and
the fieldbus systems (PROFIBUS DP, ProfiNet and Ethernet) of the barcode readers of the
BCL 500i series offer optimum connection to the primary host system.

General information
The integrated fieldbus connectivity = i contained in the barcode readers of the BCL 500i
series facilitates the use of identification systems which function without connector unit or
gateways. The integrated fieldbus interface considerably simplifies handling. The Plug-andPlay concept enables easy networking and very simple commissioning: Directly connect the
respective fieldbus and all configuration is performed with no additional software.
For decoding barcodes, the barcode readers of the BCL 500i series make available the
proven CRT decoder with code fragment technology:
The proven code fragment technology (CRT) enables barcode readers of the BCL 500i
series to read barcodes with a small bar height, as well as barcodes with a damaged or
soiled print image.
22
BCL 508i
Leuze electronic
Device description
With the aid of the CRT decoder, barcodes can also be read without problem in other
demanding situations, such as with a large tilt angle (azimuth angle or even twist angle).
Figure 4.2:
Possible barcode orientation
The BCL 508i can be operated and configured using the integrated webConfig tool via the
USB service interface; alternatively, the barcode readers can be adjusted using configuration commands via the host/service interface.
The BCL 508i needs a suitable activation to start a read process as soon as an object is in
the reading field. This opens a time window ("reading gate") in the BCL 508i for the read
process during which the barcode reader has time to detect and decode a barcode.
Through the read operation, the BCL 508i collects additional useful pieces of data for diagnosis which can also be transmitted to the host. The quality of the read operation can be
inspected using the alignment mode which is integrated in the webConfig tool.
A multi-language display with buttons is used to operate the BCL 508i as well as for visualisation purposes. Two LEDs provide additional optical information on the current operating
state of the device.
The four freely configurable switching inputs/outputs "SWIO 1 … SWIO 4" can be assigned
various functions and control e.g. activation of the BCL 508i or external devices, such as a
PLC.
System, warning and error messages provide assistance in set-up/troubleshooting during
commissioning and read operation.

Reading techniques
4.4.1
Line scanner (single line)
A line (scan line) scans the label. Due to the opt. opening angle, the reading field width is
dependent on the read distance. Through the movement of the object, the entire barcode is
automatically transported through the scan line.
The integrated code fragment technology permits twisting of the barcode (tilt angle) within
certain limits. These are dependent on the transport speed, the scanning rate of the scanner
and the barcode properties.
Areas of application of the line scanner
The line scanner is used:
TNT 35/7-24V
• when the bars of the barcode are printed in the conveying direction ('ladder arrangement').
• with barcodes having very short bar lengths.
• when the ladder code is turned out of the vertical position (tilt angle).
• when the scanning distance is large.
Figure 4.4:
Leuze electronic
Deflection principle for the line scanner
BCL 508i
25
Device description
4.4.2
Line scanner with oscillating mirror
The oscillating mirror deflects the scan line additionally to both sides across the scan direction at a randomly adjustable oscillation frequency. In this way, the BCL 508i can also scan
larger areas or spaces for barcodes. The reading field height (and the scan line length useful
for evaluation) depends on the reading distance due to the optical beam width of the oscillating mirror.
Areas of application of the line scanner with oscillating mirror
For line scanners with oscillating mirror, oscillation frequency, start/stop position etc. are
adjustable. It is used:
• when the position of the label is not fixed, e.g. on pallets – various labels can, thus, be
detected at various positions.
• when the bars of the barcode are printed perpendicular to the conveying direction
('picket fence arrangement').
• when reading stationary objects.
• when the barcode is turned out of the horizontal position.
• when the scanning distance is large.
• when a large reading field (reading window) has to be covered.

Omnidirectional reading
In order to read arbitrarily oriented barcodes on an object, at least 2 barcode readers are
necessary. If the barcode is not printed over-square, i.e. bar length > code length, barcode
readers with integrated code fragment technology are necessary.

Fieldbus systems
Various product variants of the BCL 500i series are available for connecting to different
fieldbus systems such as PROFIBUS DP, ProfiNet and Ethernet.
4.5.1
Ethernet
The BCL 508i is designed as an Ethernet device (acc. to IEEE 802.3) with a standard baud
rate of 10/100 Mbit. A fixed MAC ID is assigned to each BCL 508i by the manufacturer; this
ID cannot be changed.
The BCL 508i automatically supports the transmission rates of 10 Mbit/s (10Base T) and
100 Mbit/s (10Base TX), as well as auto-negotiation and auto-crossover.
The BCL 508i features multiple M12 connectors / sockets for the electrical connection of the
supply voltage, the interface and the switching inputs and outputs. Additional information on
the electrical connection can be found in chapter 7.
The BCL 508i supports the following protocols and services:
•
•
•
•
•
TCP / IP (Client / Server)
UDP
DHCP
ARP
PING
For communication with the primary host system, the corresponding TCP/IP protocol (client/
server mode) or UDP must be selected.
Further information on commissioning can be found in chapter 10.
4.5.2
Ethernet – star topology
The BCL 508i can be operated as a single device (standalone) in an Ethernet star topology
with individual IP address.
The IP address can either be set permanently via the display or webConfig tool or assigned
dynamically via a DHCP server.

Ethernet – linear topology
The innovative further development of the BCL 508i with integrated switch functionality
offers the option of connecting multiple barcode readers of type BCL 508i to one another
without direct connection to a switch. In addition to the classic "star topology", a "linear
topology" is thus also possible.

Each participant in this network requires its own unique IP address which must be assigned
via the display or webConfig tool; alternatively, the DHCP method can also be used.
4.6
Heater
For low-temperature applications to min. -35°C (e.g. in cold storage), the barcode readers
of the BCL 508i series can optionally be permanently fitted with a built-in heating and these
barcode readers purchased as separate device models.
4.7
External parameter memory
The optionally available external parameter memory –
based on a USB memory stick (compatible with
version 1.1) – is housed in an external hood with integrated connectors which cover the USB service interface when installed (IP 65). By having available a
copy of the current parameter set of the BCL 508i, the
external parameter memory makes it easy and
reduces the time needed to replace the BCL 508i on
site. A manual configuration of the exchanged device
is thereby omitted.
The procedure for transferring the configuration with the aid of the external parameter
memory is described on page 120.

To mount, the cover of the hood with integrated connectors must be unscrewed. The tube
is then screwed onto the USB connection on the BCL 508i after which the USB memory stick
is plugged into the connection and the hood with integrated connectors closed with the cover
in order to ensure protection class IP 65.

Device description
4.8
autoReflAct
AutoReflAct stands for Automatic Reflector Activation and permits an activation without
additional sensors. This is achieved by directing the scanner with reduced scanning beam
towards a reflector mounted behind the conveyor path. As long as the scanner is targeted
at the reflector, the reading gate remains closed. If, however, the reflector is blocked by an
object such as a container with a barcode label, the scanner activates the read procedure,
and the label on the container is read. When the path from the scanner to the reflector has
cleared, the read procedure has completed and the scanning beam is reduced and again
directed onto the reflector. The reading gate is closed.
The autoReflAct function uses the scanning beam to simulate a photoelectric sensor and
thus permits an activation without additional sensory mechanism.
4.9
Reference codes
The BCL 508i offers the possibility of storing one or two reference codes.
It is possible to store the reference codes by means of teach-in (display command), via the
webConfig tool or via online commands.
The BCL 508i can compare read barcodes with one and/or both reference codes and
execute user-configurable functions depending on the comparison result.

autoConfig
With the autoConfig function, the BCL 508i offers the user who only wishes to simultaneously read one code type (symbology) with one number of digits an extremely simple and
convenient configuration option.
After starting the autoConfig function via the display, switching input or from a primary
control, it is sufficient to position a barcode label with the desired code type and number of
digits in the reading field of the BCL 508i.
Afterward, barcodes with the same code type and number of digits are recognised and
decoded.

Construction
The heating consists of two parts:
• The front cover heater
• The housing heater
Function
When the 24VDC supply voltage is applied to the BCL 508i, a temperature switch initially
only connects the heating to electrical power (front cover heater and housing heater). During
the heating phase (around 30min), when the inside temperature rises above 15°C, the
temperature switch connects the BCL 508i to the supply voltage. This is followed by the self
test and the changeover to read operation. The "PWR" LED lights up showing overall readiness for operation.
When the inside temperature reaches approximately 18 °C, another temperature switch
turns the housing heater off and, if necessary, back on again (if the inside temperature drops
below 15°C). This does not interrupt the read operation. The front cover heater remains activated until an inside temperature of 25°C is reached. At temperatures above this, the front
cover heater switches off and, with a switching hysteresis of 3°C, back on again at an inside
temperature below 22°C.
Electrical connection
The required core cross-section of the connection cable for the voltage supply must be at
least 0.75 mm².
Attention!
The voltage supply must not be looped through from one device to the next.
Power consumption
The energy requirement depends on the model:
• the line scanner with heating typically consumes 40W and a maximum of 50W power.
• the line scanner with oscillating mirror and heating typically consumes 60W and a
maximum of 75W.
These values are based on operation with unconnected switching outputs.

Barcode characteristics
Notice!
Please note that the size of the barcode module influences the maximum reading distance
and the width of the reading field. Therefore, when selecting a mounting location and/or the
barcode label, take into account the different reading characteristics of the scanner with various barcode modules.

Figure 5.4:
= Module: The narrowest line or space of a barcode in
mm
= Wide element: Wide lines and spaces are a multiple
(ratio) of the module.
Module x Ratio = ZB (Normal Ratio 1 : 2.5)
= Quiet zone: The quiet zone should be at least 10
times the module, but not less than 2.5mm.
= Code length: The length of the barcode in mm including the start and stop characters. The quiet zone is
included depending on the code definition.
= Bar length: Height of the elements in mm
The most important characteristics of a barcode
The range in which the barcode can be read by the BCL 508i (the so-called reading field)
depends on the quality of the printed barcode and its dimensions.
Notice!
A rule of thumb: The smaller the module of the barcode is, the smaller the maximum reading
distance and reading field width will be.

Therefore, above all, the module of a barcode is decisive for the size of the reading field.

Reading field curves
Notice!
Please notice that the real reading fields are also influenced by factors such as labelling material, printing quality, scanning angle, printing contrast etc., and may thus deviate from the
reading fields specified here.
The zero position of the reading distance always refers the front edge of the housing of the
beam exit and is shown in figure 5.5 for the two housing types of the BCL 508i.

Reading field curves for heating devices
The reading field curves of the heating devices differ to some extent from the normal reading
curves due to the optics heating and are somewhat reduced in the reading field width as well
as in the reading field height!
• The maximum opening angle for all oscillating and deflection mirror devices
(BCL 508i…100 H) is reduced to ±28° (without heating = ±30°).
• In addition, the maximum swivel range for all oscillating mirror devices
(BCL 508i O…100 H) is reduced to ±12° (without heating = ±20°). The deflection
mirror models (BCL 508i S…100 H) are not affected by this limitation.
• The reading field curves and opening angles are unchanged for all line scanners with
heating (BCL 508i S…102 H), .
For details, please refer to the following reading field curves for the heating devices.

6.3.1
Selecting a mounting location
In order to select the right mounting location, several factors must be considered:
• Size, orientation, and position tolerance of the barcodes on the objects to be
scanned.
• The reading field of the BCL 508i in relation to the barcode module width.
• The resulting minimum and maximum reading distance from the respective reading
field (see chapter 5.5 "Reading field curves / optical data").
• The permissible line lengths between the BCL 508i and the host system depending
on which interface is used.
• The correct time for data output. The BCL 508i should be positioned in such a way
that, taking into consideration the time required for data processing and the conveyor
belt speed, there is sufficient time to e.g. initiate sorting operations on the basis of the
read data.
• The display and control panel should be very visible and accessible.
• For configuring and commissioning with the webConfig tool, the USB interface should
be easily accessible.
For specific information, please refer to chapter 4.4.

TNT 35/7-24V
Notice!
When mounting, ensure that the scanning beam is not reflected directly back to the scanner
by the label which is being read. For further information, see the notices in chapter 6.3!:
Please refer to chapter 5.6 for the permissible minimum and maximum distances between
the BCL 508i and the labels to be read.
Installation and mounting
Notice!
The beam exits the BCL 508i as follows for the respective devices:
- line scanner parallel to the housing base
- oscillating mirror and deflection mirror perpendicular to the housing base
The black areas in figure 6.1 are the housing base. The best read results are obtained when:
• The BCL 508i is mounted in such a way that the scanning beam is incident on the
barcode at an angle of inclination greater than ±10° … 15° to vertical.
• The reading distance lies in the middle area of the reading field.
• The barcode labels are of good print quality and have good contrast ratios.
• You do not use high-gloss labels.
• There is no direct sunlight.
6.3.2
Avoiding total reflection – Line scanner
The barcode label must be positioned at an angle of inclination greater than ±10° … 15°
from vertical in order to avoid total reflection of the laser beam (see figure 6.5)!
Total reflection occurs whenever the laser light of the barcode reader is directly incident on
the surface of the barcode at an angle of 90°. The light directly reflected by the barcode may
overload the barcode reader and thereby cause non-readings!
The BCL 508i should be mounted in such a way that the
scanning beam is incident on the barcode at an angle of inclination greater than ±10° … 15° to vertical.

Avoiding total reflection – oscillating/deflection-mirror scanner
For the BCL 508i with oscillating/deflection mirror, the laser beam exits at an angle of 90°
to vertical.
For the BCL 508i with deflection mirror, it is also possible to use software to adjust the
direction of the beam by ±10°.
For the BCL 508i with oscillating mirror, the swivel range of ±20° (±12° for devices with
heating) is to be taken into account.
This means that in order to be on the safe side and to avoid total reflection, the BCL 508i
with oscillating/deflection mirror must be inclined upward or downward 20° … 30°!

• Maintaining the required environmental conditions (temperature, humidity).
• Possible soiling of the reading window due to liquids, abrasion by boxes, or packaging material residues.
• Lowest possible chance of damage to the BCL 508i by mechanical collision or
jammed parts.
• Possible extraneous light (no direct sunlight or sunlight reflected by the barcode).
6.3.5
Devices with integrated heating
ª For devices with integrated heating, also observe the following points:
• Mount the BCL 508i in a way which provides maximum thermal isolation, e.g. using
rubber-bonded metal.
• Mount in such a way that the device is protected from draughts and wind; mount additional shields if necessary.
Notice!
When installing the BCL 508i in a protective housing, it must be ensured that the scanning
beam can exit the protective housing without obstruction.

Maximum permissible read angles between BCL 508i and barcode
The optimum alignment of the BCL 508i is accomplished when the scan line scans the code
bars almost at a right angle (90°). All read angles that are possible between the scan line
and barcode must be taken account (figure 6.7).

Notice!
Ensure adequate shielding. The entire connection cable must be shielded and earthed. The
signal lines must be stranded in pairs.
Use CAT 5 cable for the connection.
Notice!
For the BCL 508i as standalone device or as the last participant in a linear topology, termination on the BUS OUT socket is not mandatory!

Ethernet topologies
The BCL 508i can be operated as a single device (standalone) in an Ethernet star topology
with individual IP address.
The IP address can either be set permanently via the display or webConfig tool or assigned
dynamically via a DHCP server.

Ethernet with star topology
The innovative further development of the BCL 508i with integrated switch functionality
offers the option of networking multiple barcode readers of type BCL 508i with one another.
In addition to the classic "star topology", a "linear topology" is also possible.
This makes wiring the network easy and inexpensive as slaves are connected to one
another in parallel.
The maximum length of a segment (connection from the hub to the last participant) is limited
to 100m.

Up to 254 barcode readers can be networked. For this purpose, each participating BCL 508i
is assigned the respective network address via the display and the control panel or the
webConfig tool. This address must be specified by the network administrator. Alternatively,
the BCL 508i can also be configured as a DHCP client and then automatically receive its
address from a DHCP server.
Information on the necessary configuration steps can be found in chapter 10.

Ethernet wiring
A Cat. 5 Ethernet cable should be used for wiring.
For the connection on the BCL 508i, a "KDS ET M12 / RJ 45 W - 4P" adapter is available
into which the standard network cable can be plugged.
If no standard network cables are to be used (e.g. due to lacking IP… protection class), you
can use the "KB ET - … - SA" user-configurable cable on the BCL 508i, see table 13.8 "Bus
connection cables for the BCL 508i" on page 140.
The individual BCL 508i devices in a linear topology are connected with the
"KB ET - … - SSA" cable, see table 13.8 "Bus connection cables for the BCL 508i" on
page 140.
For unavailable line lengths, you can configure your cables yourself. When doing so, make
certain that you connect TD+ on the M12 connector with RD+ on the RJ-45 connector and
TD- on the M12 connector with RD- on the RJ-45 connector, respectively, etc.
Notice!
Use the recommended connectors / sockets or the ready-made lines (see chapter 13 "Type

IP address
The IP address can be set to any value in the
192.168.060.101
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx format.
Normally, the network administrator specifies the
IP address that is to be set here. If DHCP is activated, the setting made here has no effect and
the BCL 508i is set to the values that it obtains
from the DHCP server.
Gateway
The gateway address can be set to any value in
the xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx format.
The BCL 508i communicates with participants in
other subnets via the gateway. Splitting the read
application over multiple subnets is rather
uncommon; the setting of the gateway address,
thus, usually has no meaning.
Net mask
The net mask can be set to any value in the
255.255.255.000
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx format.
Usually, the BCL 508i is used in a private Class C
network and the default setting can be accepted
without change.
Attention: It is possible to enter any values for
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx. Only the values 255 or 000 are
permissible for xxx, however. If other values are
set, an error message appears upon restart of the
BCL 508i.

BCL 508i waits for the connection to be setup.
Under TcpIP Server -> Port number, you must
also specify on which local port of the BCL 508i
communication requests of a client application
are accepted (host system).
Client defines the BCL 508i as TCP client: The
BCL 508i actively establishes the connection to
the primary host system (PC / PLC as server).
Under TcpIP Client, you must also specify the IP
address of the server (host system) and the port
number on which the server (host system)
accepts a connection. In this case, the BCL 508i
now determines when and with whom a connection is established!

Commissioning and configuration
10.3.3 Ethernet host communication
The Ethernet host communication enables the configuration of connections to an external
host system. Both UDP as well as TCP/IP (in either client or server mode) can be used. The
connection-free UDP protocol is used primarily to transfer process data to the host (monitor
operation). The connection-oriented TCP/IP protocol can also be used to transfer
commands from the host to the device. With this connection, the data is backed up by the
TCP/IP protocol itself.
If you would like to use the TCP/IP protocol, you must also define whether the BCL 508i is
to operate as a TCP client or as a TCP server.
Both protocols can be activated simultaneously and used in parallel.
ª Contact your network administrator to determine which communication protocol is used.
10.3.4 TCP/IP
ª Activate the TCP/IP protocol
ª Set the TCP/IP mode of the BCL 508i
In TCP client mode, the BCL 508i actively establishes the connection to the primary host
system (PC / PLC as server). The BCL 508i requires from the user the IP address of the
server (host system) and the port number on which the server (host system) accepts a
connection. In this case, the BCL 508i determines when and with whom a connection is
established!
•
•
•
•
IP address of the TCP server (normally the PLC/host computer)
Port number of the TCP server
Timeout for the wait time for an answer from the server
Repetition time for renewed communication attempt following a timeout
In TCP server mode, the primary host system (PC / PLC) actively establishes the connection and the connected BCL 508i waits for the connection to be setup. The TCP/IP stack
requires information from the user regarding the local port of the BCL 508i (port number) on
which the connection requests of a client application (host system) are to be accepted. If
there is a connection request and a connection is established by the primary host system
(PC / PLC as client), the BCL 508i (server mode) accepts the connection. Data can then be
sent and received.
ª With a BCL 508i as TCP server, also set the following values:

Additional settings for the BCL 508i
After the basic configuration of the operating mode and the communication parameters, you
need to carry out further settings:
• Decoding and processing the read data
• Control of the decoding
• Control of the switching outputs
10.4.1
Decoding and processing the read data
The BCL 508i offers the following options:
• Setting the number of labels to be decoded for each reading gate (0 … 64). This is
done via the Max. no. of labels parameter.
• Definition of up to 8 different code types (4 different types if configured via the display). Labels that match one of the defined code types are decoded. Further parameters can be set for each code type:
• The code type (symbology)
• The Number of digits: either up to 5 different numbers of digits (e.g., 10, 12, 16,
20, 24), or a range (Interval mode) and up to three additional numbers of digits
(e.g., 2 … 10, 12, 16, 26)
• The Reading reliability: the set value specifies how many times a label must
be read and decoded with the same result before the result is accepted as valid.
• Activation of the code fragment technology (CRT, in the webConfig tool only)
• Additional code type specific settings (in the webConfig tool only)
• Check digit method used for decoding as well as the type of Check digit output for the read result. The two possibilities for the latter are Standard (corresponds to the standard for the selected code type/symbology) and not Standard.
ª Define at least one code type with the desired settings.

Data processing via the webConfig tool
In the Data and Output submenus of the Configuration main menu, the webConfig tool
provides extensive data processing options to adapt the functionality of the BCL 508i to the
specific reading task:
• Data filtering and segmentation in the Data submenu:
• Data filtering according to characteristics for handling identical barcode information
• Data segmentation for differentiating between identifier and content of the read
data
• Data filtering according to content and/or identifier in order to suppress the output
of barcodes with specific content/identifiers
• Completeness inspection of the read data
• Sorting and formatting the output data in the Output submenu:
• Configuration of up to 3 different sorting criteria. Sorting by physical data and content of the read barcodes.
• Formatting of the data output for the HOST.
• Formatting of the data output for the display.
10.4.2 Control of the decoding
In general, decoding is controlled via one or more of the configurable switching inputs/
outputs. For this purpose, the respective connection to the SW IN/OUT and POWER interfaces must be configured as a switching input.

Advanced decoder control via the webConfig tool
The webConfig tool provides advanced functions, in particular for deactivating decoding.
These may be accessed via the Control submenu of the Configuration main menu. You
can:
• activate decoding automatically (delayed)
• stop decoding after a maximum reading gate time
• stop decoding via the completeness mode, if:
• the maximum number of barcodes to be decoded has been decoded
• a positive reference code comparison has taken place.
10.4.3
Control of the switching outputs
By using the switching inputs/outputs of the BCL 508i, external event-controlled functions
can be implemented without assistance from the primary process control. For this purpose,
the respective connection at the SW IN/OUT and POWER interfaces must be configured as
a switching output.
A switching output can be activated:
• at the start/end of the reading gate
• depending on the read result:
• reference code comparison positive/negative
• read result valid/invalid
• depending on the state of the device:
• ready/not ready
• data transmission active/not active
• active/standby
• error/no error
• etc.

Transmitting configuration data
Instead of going through the tedious task of configuring every parameter of the BCL 508i
individually, you can also conveniently transfer configuration data.
In general, there are two possibilities for transferring configuration data between two
BCL 508i barcode readers:
• Storage in a file and transfer using the webConfig tool
• Using the external parameter memory
10.5.1 Via the webConfig tool
With the webConfig tool, you can store entire configurations of the BCL 508i on data carriers
and transfer them from these to the BCL 508i.
This storage of configuration data is especially useful if you want to store basic configurations which will require only minor changes.
In the webConfig tool, you store the configuration data via the buttons in the upper part of
the middle window of all submenus of the Configuration main menu.
Figure 10.2: Storing configuration data in the webConfig tool
The use of the external parameter memory permits the easy replacement of a defective
BCL 508i on site.
This requires an external parameter memory to be installed permanently to the USB connection of the BCL 508i.
The BCL 508i stores a copy of the current configuration in the external parameter memory.
This copy is immediately updated when the configuration is changed via the display or by a

Command

’JP’
Description
This command simplifies mounting and alignment of the BCL 508i. After
activating the function with ’JP+’, the BCL 508i continuously supplies status information to the serial interfaces.
With this online command, the scanner is set to terminate the decoding
after 100 successfully decoded labels and output the status information.
Subsequently, the read process is reactivated automatically.
In addition to the output of the status information, the laser beam is used
to display the reading quality. Depending on how many read results could
be extracted, the duration of the laser's "off" time increases.
If the reading quality is high, the laser beam flashes in brief, regular intervals. The worse the decoder decodes, the longer the pauses become during which the laser is switched off. The flashing intervals become more
and more irregular because the laser may, in total, be active for longer to
extract more labels. The duration of the pauses has been stepped in such
a way that they can be distinguished by the eye.

following criteria:
• Deactivation by a manual command
• Deactivation by a switching input
• Deactivation upon reaching the specified read quality (equal
scans)
• Deactivation by timeout
• Deactivation upon reaching a preset number of scans without
