Getting Started with Dolphin 7200 with Image-Capture™ Handheld Computer The Dolphin 7200 with Image-Capture handheld computer incorporates a low-power, high-resolution camera to electronically capture and store images. The terminal can also be used to scan barcodes when equipped with a laser scanner. These instructions briefly describe how to set-up and use the Dolphin Image-Capture terminal and supplied demonstration software. Refer to Chapters 1 and 2 in the Dolphin User’s Guide for more on basic operation of the Dolphin terminal and Chapter 4 for specific details on the Dolphin Image Capture terminal. Preparations for the Dolphin STEP 1: Unpacking the Dolphin IC & peripherals When you remove the terminal from its box, save the box and shipping material in case you need to ship or store the terminal.
