Features of the MX1 Hand Held Computer
Introduction
The MX1 is a rugged, portable, hand-held PC-compatible computer capable of wireless data
communications while being carried. The MX1 can transmit information using either a 900 MHz
or 2.4 GHz radio. It can store information for later transmission through an RS-232 or InfraRed
port. The MX1 is vertically oriented and features backlighting for the display. The keypad is
constructed of a phosphorescent material that needs no backlighting.
The MX1 is a DOS compatible computer designed to run as a batch unit or to run software
applications such as LXE’s Terminal Emulator applications (ANSI Plus, LDS Plus, DOS 5250,
DOS 3270, TN3270 and TN5250).
The heart of the MX1 is an Intel® 486 processor that is PC compatible. The MX1 features a
graphics screen with electroluminescent backlight. The case is constructed of high-impact plastic
designed to withstand multiple drops in an industrial environment.
Note:
Always store unused mobile devices with a fully charged main battery pack installed.
LXE recommends the mobile device be connected to an external power source
periodically to retain optimum power levels in the main battery pack and the backup
battery.
Note:
The 900MHz radios are obsolete. Terminal emulation software used by mobile devices
with 900MHz radios is also obsolete, e.g. 3270 DOS TE, 5250 DOS TE.

Display Backlight
A display backlighting feature is available and depending upon programming, will operate in one
of three ways:
•
•
•
Backlighting Off. This is the most efficient way to operate the computer with
battery power.
Backlighting On For A Short Time. This will provide display backlighting for a
predetermined amount of time. Use of this feature will result in reduced battery life.
Backlighting On Whenever The Unit Is On. This provides full time
backlighting to the display whenever the unit is turned on. It greatly reduces the
expected battery life.
Display Backlight Timer
When the Display Backlight Timer expires the display backlight is turned off. The default value
for this parameter is 3 seconds. The value can be adjusted using the BIOS Setup. Refer to the
“MX1 Reference Guide.”
Any of the following will wake the display and display backlight:
•
•
•
Display update by host or currently running application on the MX1
Trigger
Any key on the keypad
When the display wakes up, the Display Backlight Timer will begin the countdown again. When
any of the above events occur prior to the timer expiring, the timer starts the countdown again.
Panning
The MX1 display can be panned around using keypress sequences so the user can view an entire
virtual 640 x 480 pixel screen. Initially, the 20 columns and 20 rows in the top left corner of a

Endcaps
The MX1 can be configured with several different endcaps. Endcaps are mounted on the top of
the computer case and contain the beeper. The endcap port is designated as COM 1.
Read all cautions, warnings and labels before using the scanner.
Important
See also section titled “Scanner Warnings and Labels.”
Scanner Endcap
Several scanner endcaps are available with the MX1. These consist of a High Performance, Long
Range, Advanced Long Range and 2D Decoded Raster scanner endcaps. Externally they appear
similar with similar indicators. Barcode Scanner operation varies depending upon the application
but, once enabled, the scanners are activated by pressing either the “Scan” button on the keypad or
pressing the trigger on the handle (if so equipped).
Figure 3 Scanner Endcap
The range of a scanner is dependent upon many outside influences including size of the barcode,
quality of the barcode printing, material the barcode is printed on, and angle of the scanner endcap
relative to the barcode label. Any of these factors may result in having to re-scan the label from a
different distance or angle.
If you need to set up the integrated scanner (SE923, SE1223 or SE2223) barcode reading
parameters, please refer to the “Integrated Scanner Programming Guide for DOS
Devices” on the LXE Manuals CD or the LXE ServicePass website.

IR Port
Figure 8 IR Port
The InfraRed (IR) port provides a means of transferring information to a device with a similar
port and the proper software. The IR port can be used to communicate with printers or, with the
use of an adapter, a host computer network.
When sending data through the IR port while the MX1 is docked, make sure the IR port on the
MX1 in the docking station and the IR port on the second MX1 are in close proximity to each
other.
The IR Port is specified as COM 2 and is a bi-directional half-duplex infrared port. It supports the
IrDA (Infrared Data Access) standard that allows communication speeds up to 115k baud. The
IrDA software restricts the baud rate to 19.2k baud for IrDA transmissions. IrDA software is NOT
installed/maintained by LXE.

Features of the MX1 Hand Held Computer
2nd Key Function
The 2nd key is colored yellow and is used to activate the 2nd functions of the keypad.
Printed above many keys are yellow characters that represent the 2nd function of that
key. Using the 2nd key activates the second key function. Note that the 2nd key only
stays active for one keystroke. Each time you need to use the 2nd function you must
press the 2nd key. To cancel a 2nd function before pressing another key, press the 2nd
key again. When the 2nd function is active, the 2nd icon stays on the screen.
For example:
•
Full Alpha-Numeric : 2nd plus the I key initiates INSERT mode.
•
Numeric-Alpha : 2nd plus the SPC key initiates ALT mode.
CTRL Key Function
The CTRL key enables the control functions of the keypad. This function is similar to
a regular keyboard’s Control key. Note that the Ctrl key only stays active for one
keystroke. Each time you need to use a Ctrl function, you need to press the Ctrl key
before pressing the function key. When the Ctrl function is active, the Ctrl icon stays
on the screen.
ALT Key Function
Note:
Full alpha-numeric keypad only.
The ALT key enables the alternate functions of the keypad. This function is similar to
a regular keyboard’s Alt key. Note that the Alt key only stays active for one keystroke.
Each time you need to use an alternate function, you need to press the Alt key before
pressing the function key. When the Alt function is active, the Alt icon stays on the
screen.
SHFT Key Function
The Shft key enables the shifted functions of the keypad. This function is similar to a
regular keyboard’s Shift key. Note that the Shift key only stays active for one
keystroke. Each time you need to use a Shifted function, you need to press the Shft
key before pressing the function key. When the Shft function is active, the Shft icon
stays on the screen.
When the Shft key is pressed the next key is determined by the major key legends,
i.e., the alpha keys display lower case letters when CAPS is On and function keys
enable the shifted function key.
SPC Key Function
Note:
Numeric-alpha keypad only. SPC is a 2nd function on the full alpha-numeric keypad.
The Spc key adds a space to the line of data on the display. This function is similar to
a regular keyboard’s Spacebar. Note that the SPC key only stays active for one
keystroke.

Mode Key Functions
CAPS Mode
This function is similar to a regular keyboard’s CapsLock key. Note that the CapsLock mode stays
active until the CapsLock key sequence is pressed again. Each time you need to use a Caps
function, you need to press the Caps key sequence first. To cancel a CapsLock function press the
Caps key sequence again. When the CapsLock mode is active, the Caps icon stays on the screen.
Caps mode on both keypads is accessed through the key sequence 2nd plus Shft plus Left arrow.
Alpha to Numeric Toggle with A / #
Note:
Numeric-alpha keypad only.
When the keypad is in Alpha mode, the Alpha icon stays on the screen. When the
Alpha icon is not displayed, the keypad is in numeric mode. Note that the Alpha or
Numeric mode stays active until the A / # key is pressed again. To toggle the A / #
mode press the A / # key again.
The exception to this rule -- when the keypad is in numeric mode and you want to type one alpha
character within a sequence of numbers, pressing 2nd plus Ctrl and then the A / # key will toggle
the keypad to alpha mode for one character – the next key pressed. Then the keypad returns to
numeric mode. Likewise for toggling alpha to numeric for one key only.
Keypress Sequences
See Appendix A for key maps for the alphanumeric and numeric-alpha keypads. Key maps for the
3270 and 5250 keypads are contained in the Terminal Emulation Reference Guides.
Reset Key Sequence
Reset Key Sequence is Ctrl plus Alt plus Del.
•
Del is a 2nd function on the full alpha-numeric keypad.
•
Alt is a 2nd function on the numeric-alpha keypad.
The Reset Key sequence can be disabled in the BIOS Setup. See the “MX1 Reference Guide.”

Operation
Install Pistol Grip Handle (Optional)
The MX1 can be purchased with a customer-installable pistol grip handle. The handle enables the
user of the MX1 to hold the unit while pointing and activating the scanner with one hand. Pressing
the trigger activates the scanner and functions the same as the SCAN key on the keypad. With the
handle installed the SCAN key on the keypad remains active. The trigger duplicates the operation.
The handle is built of a durable and flexible plastic that is designed to detach from the MX1 if the
unit is dropped.
Figure 18 Pistol-Grip Handle and Contacts on the Back of the MX1
The top of the handle features a cradle arrangement with plastic tabs on each side that are
designed to mate with the MX1 and provide a firm grip on the case. The handle features an
integral trigger that is connected to the MX1 unit through contacts on the back of the MX1. The
trigger contacts mate with contacts on the back of the MX1 when the handle is installed. When the
handle is not installed, the MX1 contacts should be covered with the protective label delivered
with the MX1.
Preparation
Remove the protective adhesive Mylar label covering the handle contacts on the back of the MX1
unit. The contacts should be clean and free from obstructions. The MX1 unit must not have any
other handle or strap installed. If a handle or strap is installed, remove it at this time.

Operation
Enter Data
You can enter data into the MX1 through several different methods. The Scanner Endcaps provide
barcode data entry, the RS-232 or the IR port are used to input/output data, and the keypad
provides manual entry.
Attention
Powering off or rebooting the MX1 before a write (to disk) function has
completed, may result in the corruption of the flash drive.
Keypad Entry
The keypad is used to manually input data that is not collected otherwise. Almost any function
that a full sized computer keyboard can provide is duplicated on the MX1 Full Alpha-Numeric
and Numeric-Alpha keypads but it may take a few more keystrokes to accomplish the task.
For example, when the 2nd key is selected pressing the desired second-function key will produce
the 2nd character. The specific 2nd character is printed in yellow above the corresponding key.
Please refer to “Appendix A - Key Maps” for instruction on the specific keypresses to access all
keypad functions.
Scanner Entry
To scan with the laser barcode endcap, point the laser head towards a barcode and either press the
Scan key on the keypad or pull the trigger on the handle (if equipped). You will see a red laser
beam strike the barcode.
Correct Scan
Incorrect Scan
Incorrect Scan
Figure 21 Scan Beam
Align the red beam so that the barcode is centered within the beam. The laser beam must cross the
entire barcode. Move the MX1 towards or away from the barcode so that the barcode takes up
approximately two-thirds the width of the beam.
The left LED (Laser On Indicator) on the top of the laser barcode endcap will light, indicating
laser emission when the laser beam is being emitted. Following a good read, the right LED (Good
Read Indicator) flashes, indicating a successful scan. Beeps may be heard after a good read,
depending on the application running on the MX1.
The laser automatically turns off after a successful read and is ready to scan again when the Scan
key (or the trigger) is pressed.

Battery
Note:
New batteries must be charged prior to use.
The MX1 computer is designed to work with a Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) battery pack from
LXE. Under normal conditions it should last approximately eight hours before requiring a
recharge. The more you use the scanner or the transmitter, the shorter the time required between
battery recharges.
Battery Pack
The battery pack is a rugged plastic enclosure that is designed to withstand the ordinary rigors of
an industrial environment. Exercise care when transporting the battery pack making sure it does
not come in contact with excessive heat or any power source other than the LXE battery
charger/analyzer unit.
Battery Hot-Swapping
Note:
Unless you are hot-swapping the battery, make sure the MX1 is turned OFF before
removing the battery.
When the battery power level is low, the MX1 will signal the user with a continuous, one-second
beep. Beeping will continue until the battery is replaced or the battery completely depletes. You
can replace the main battery without shutting the unit off. Simply remove the weak battery and
install a strong battery. The backup battery will retain data, during a main battery hot-swap, for at
least five minutes.
Critical Suspend State
The Critical Suspend state or mode can only be entered because of a Main Battery Power failure.
A Main Battery Power failure can occur because the battery’s energy has been depleted or the
battery has been removed.
When the MX1 is in the Critical Suspend state the battery icon appears on the screen, the Status
LED blinks red, all peripherals are shut down, the CPU clock is stopped, power is removed from
the PCMCIA card and the MX1 may beep. The MX1 is saving the state prior to the main battery
failing and cannot be used.
If a new main battery pack is installed before the Off Timer expires the MX1 will transition to the
Suspend state. To resume operation tap the Power key for one beep.
If the Off Timer expires the MX1 will turn itself off and all unsaved information is lost. Insert a
fully charged battery pack and press the Power button to turn the MX1 back on.
Note:
The Off Timer can be configured in the BIOS Setup (see the “MX1 Reference Guide.”)
