Alerts you to those conditions which could cause serious bodily injury or death if the instructions are not followed correctly. Alerts you to those conditions which could cause minor bodily injury or substantial property damage if the instructions are not followed correctly. Meaning of Symbols A triangle ( ) with a picture inside alerts you to a warning of danger. Here you see the warning for electrical shock. A diagonal line through a circle ( ) alerts you to something you should not do; it may or may not have a picture inside. Here you see a screwdriver inside the circle, meaning that you should not disassemble. A black circle ( ) with a picture inside alerts you to something you MUST do. This example shows that you MUST unplug the power cord. ii To System Designers: • When introducing the scanner in those systems that could affect human lives (e.g., medicines management system), develop applications carefully through redundancy and safety design which avoids the feasibility of affecting human lives even if a data error occurs. • If smoke, abnormal odors or noises come from the scanner, immediately switch off the host computer, unplug the interface cable, and contact your nearest dealer. Failure to do so could cause fire or electrical shock. • If foreign material or water gets into the scanner, immediately switch off the host computer, unplug the interface cable, and contact your nearest dealer. Failure to do so could cause fire or electrical shock. • If you drop the scanner so as to affect the operation or damage its housing, switch off the host computer, unplug the interface cable, and contact your nearest dealer. Failure to do so could cause fire or electrical shock. • Never bring any metals into contact with the terminals in connectors. Doing so could produce a large current through the scanner, resulting in heat or fire, as well as damage to the scanner. • Never use the scanner on the line voltage other than the specified level. Doing so could cause the scanner to break or burn. • Do not use the scanner where any inflammable gases may be emitted. Doing so could cause fire. • Do not subject the scanning window of the scanner to direct sunlight for extended periods. Doing so could damage the scanner, resulting in a fire. • The scanner uses a laser light for indicating the scan range. The intensity of laser light might be too low to inflict bodily injury. However, do not look into the laser beam. The scanner complies with IEC 60825-1:1993+A2:2001 and 21 CFR 1040.10, 1040.11 except for deviations pursuant to Laser notice No. 50, dated July 26,2001. In accordance with Clause 5, IEC 60825-1, the following information is provided to the user: LASER LIGHT DO NOT STARE INTO BEAM CLASS 2 LASER PRODUCT Caution – Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than those specified herein may result in hazardous laser light exposure. iii • Do not put the scanner on an unstable or inclined plane. The scanner may drop, creating injuries. • Never put the scanner in places where there are excessively high temperatures, such as inside closed-up automobiles, or in places exposed to direct sunlight. Doing so could affect the housing or parts, resulting in a fire. • Avoid using the scanner in extremely humid areas, or where there are drastic temperature changes. Moisture will get into the scanner, resulting in malfunction, fire or electrical shock. • Do not place the scanner anyplace where it may be subjected to oily smoke or steam, e.g., near a cooking range or humidifier. Doing so could result in a fire or electrical shock. • Never disassemble or modify the scanner; doing so could result in an accident such as break or fire. Doing so could result in a fire or electrical shock. Never disassemble • Never cover or wrap up the scanner in a cloth or blanket. Doing so could cause the scanner to heat up inside, deforming its housing, resulting in a fire. Always use the scanner in a well-ventilated area. • Do not scratch or modify the scanner or its interface cable. Do not bend, twist, pull, or heat the cable. Doing so could damage the scanner or its interface cable, creating a fire hazard. • Do not put heavy material on the scanner or its interface cable, or allow the cable to get pressed under heavy material. • Do not look into the light source from the scanning window or do not point the scanning window at other people's eyes. Eyesight may be damaged by direct exposure to this light. • Do not use the scanner if your hands are wet or damp. Doing so could result in an electrical shock. • Never use chemicals or organic solvents such as benzene and thinner to clean the housing. Do not apply insecticide to the scanner. Doing so could result in a marred or cracked housing, electrical shock or fire. • Do not use the scanner with anti-slip gloves containing plasticizer. The scanner housing may be broken, creating injuries, electrical shock, or fire. • If the interface cable is damaged (e.g., exposed or broken lead wires), stop using it and contact your nearest dealer. Failure to do so could result in a fire or electrical shock. iv Care and Maintenance Dust or dirt accumulating on the clear plate of the code reading window will affect reading performance. If you use the scanner in dusty areas, therefore, periodically check the clear plate and clean it if dusty. • To clean the plate, first blow the dust away with an airbrush. Then wipe the plate with a cotton swab or the similar soft one gently. • If sand or hard particles have accumulated, never rub the plate; doing so will scratch or damage it. Blow the particles away with an airbrush or a soft brush. v

1 Chapter 2 Preparation 2.1 Operating environment The scanner requires a host computer equipped with a USB port. The operating environment differs depending upon whether you use the USB-COM interface or USB keyboard interface as listed below. USB-COM interface: To use this interface, you need to install the dedicated USB-COM device driver (virtual COM port driver) to the host computer. This interface allows you to use the scanner in applications using the conventional serial port. For instructions how to set up the device driver, refer to Chapter 3, Section 3.1. For the interface specifications, refer to Chapter 10, Section 10.1. This interface is selected by default. USB keyboard interface: No dedicated USB device driver is required. Via this interface, data scanned by the scanner can be entered to the cursor position in your application. For instructions how to set up the device driver, refer to Chapter 3, Section 3.2. For the interface specifications, refer to Chapter 10, Section 10.2. You can switch between the USB-COM interface and USB keyboard interface by using the QR-coded parameter menu (provided in Chapter 13) or the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D)*.

To use the USB-COM interface (factory default): To use the USB keyboard interface:

Host computer PC/AT or AT/AT compatible PC equipped with a USB port Operating System (OS) Windows 98SE Windows 98/98SE Windows Me Windows 2000 Professional Windows XP Home/Professional

USB driver USB-COM device driver provided by DENSO WAVE OS-supplied device driver

Note: The scanner cannot be used on Windows NT that does not support any USB device. Using the QR-coded parameter menu (provided in Chapter 13) or the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D)* can switch between the USB-COM interface and USB keyboard interface. Connecting the scanner's USB interface cable to the host computer or USB hub while holding down the magic key also switches from the current interface to another one; from the USB-COM interface to USB keyboard interface, or vice versa. The interface setting will be retained even if the power is off. * The configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) is available as free downloads from our website at denso-wave.com/. 2 2.2 Connecting the interface cable to the scanner (1) Pull the connector cover of the interface cable off its connector as shown below. (2) Plug the interface cable connector into the connector located in the bottom of the scanner. Note: As shown below, hold the scanner body, align the mark on the cable connector with that on the scanner, and fully insert the interface cable connector. Scanner mark Interface cable connector Connector cover mark (3) Align the two bosses on the connector cover with cutouts in the scanner body, fit the connector cover into the scanner, and turn it clockwise to lock it. Cutout Connector cover Boss Turn the cover until the bosses come to be horizontal. Connector cover 3 Chapter 3 Connection to the Host Computer--Setting up the USB Interface-- The scanner receives and sends data from/to the host computer through the USB-COM interface or USB keyboard interface. You need to set up the device driver designed for the interface to be used. Notes for connecting the USB interface cable ④ When plugging and unplugging the USB connector, put an interval of at least 10 seconds between those actions since Windows may take several to 10 seconds to add or delete the USB device. ④ Hot plugging/unplugging is allowed for USB devices. However, do not plug or unplug the USB connector when: - The computer is on standby (in suspend mode) or - The COM port is open with the USB-COM interface being used. (Hot plugging/unplugging under this condition may not only lose data but affect the system badly.) ④ When the host computer is processing the scanner connection, do not plug or unplug any other USB device cables. ④ Never disconnect the USB interface cable when the scanner is communicating. Doing so will not only lose data but affect the system badly. ④ Directly connect the scanner to the USB port on the host computer or to the self-powered hub. The scanner may not be connected to some types of hubs. If the operation of the hub-connected scanner is unstable, connect it directly to any USB port on the host computer. ④ Do not use any extension cord. 3.1 Setting up the USB-COM interface Using the USB-COM interface requires installing the USB-COM device driver provided by DENSO WAVE to the host computer. The driver can be downloaded for free from our website at: denso-wave.com/ The file downloaded contains the USB-COM device driver and uninstaller which are compressed. It is a self-extracting file. Store the file into a folder and then double-click its icon to extract it. Connecting the USB interface cable to the host's USB port or USB hub automatically runs the system-supplied driver setup wizard on the host computer. Follow the wizard and install the USB-COM device driver. The setup procedure on each of Windows 98SE, Windows Me, Windows 2000, and Windows XP is described on the following pages. Notes for installing the USB-COM device driver ④ If our USB-COM device driver has not been installed on your computer, do not connect the scanner to the USB port before or when you switch the computer on. Connecting it at such timing will start installing our USB device driver during booting, so the driver installation may not be completed successfully. ④ If it is impossible to install our USB-COM device driver, any similar USB device driver may have been already installed on your computer. If it has, remove the USB device driver from the device manager and reinstall our USB-COM device driver. Note that before the removal, you should confirm that the currently installed USB device driver is not used for other USB devices. ④ If you are using any DENSO WAVE USB device operated by our USB-COM device driver, no driver installation is required since the USB-COM device driver already installed on your computer will be automatically used. If you want to install a new USB-COM device driver, uninstall the previously installed similar driver using the dedicated uninstaller before installing a new one. ④ Store the Windows 98SE/Me device driver file (dwcom9x.ini, dwcom9x.sys, dwport.ini, and dwport.vxd) and Windows 2000/XP device driver file (dwcom.ini and dwcom.sys) in separate folders. (That is, do not extract those driver files in the same folder.) 4 ④ When installing device drivers, be sure to specify the driver designed for the Windows version running on the host computer. Installing any driver designed for different Windows versions might damage the system. < If you have installed or attempted to install any wrong driver: > Windows 98SE: Choose View | Options and select "Show hidden files." Windows Me/2000/XP: Choose Tools | Folder Options and select "Show hidden files and folders" and clear the "Hide protected operating system files" check box. And then, follow the recovery procedure given below. - If you have installed the device driver designed for Windows 2000/XP family to Windows 98SE/Me: The wrong device will be marked with the when the Windows device manager is opened. Remove the wrong device with the following steps: 1) Remove the DENSO WAVE USB-COM Port from the device manager. 2) Remove the following files if any at the following locations: C: Windows Inf Other DENSO WAVEdwcom.inf C: Windows Inf Dwcom.inf, Dwcom.pnf, Dwcom9x.inf, Dwcom9x.pnf, Dwport.inf, Dwport.pnf C: Windows System Dwport.vxd C: Windows System32 drivers Dwport.sys 3) Reboot the host computer. - If you attempted to install the device driver designed for Windows 98 family to Windows 2000/XP: Windows 2000/XP issued an error and rejected the driver installation. To recover from the error state, perform the following steps: 1) Remove the USB Device GT10Q-SU/HU from the device manager. 2) Remove Oem*.inf files having the same contents of Dwcom9x.inf from C: Winnt Inf folder. (To find those files, open the Dwcom9x.inf file stored on the installer CD using Note Pad and copy the character string(s) on the top line, open the Winnt Inf folder, click Search on the tool bar, paste the string(s) into the Containing text box, and click Search Now.) 3) Remove Oem*.pnf files (a compiled file of the Oem*.inf files), where * is the same number as Oem*.inf files. 4) Remove the following files if any at the following locations: C: Winnt Inf Dwcom.inf, Dwcom.pnf, Dwcom9x.inf, Dwcom9x.pnf, Dwport.inf, Dwport.pnf C: Winnt System Dwport.vxd C: Winnt System32 drivers Dwcom9x.sys Note: For Windows XP, read C: Winnt … as C: Windows … 5) Reboot the host computer. After completion of the procedure above, reinstall our USB-COM device driver. ④ In Windows 2000/XP, before unplugging the USB interface cable, use the Hardware wizard in the Control Panel to stop the device. 5 When configuring the COM port: ④ In Windows 2000/XP, if you connect the scanner to your computer first time or have changed the COM port for the scanner or hub, then confirm the COM port number on the Windows device manager or the like before use. ④ Windows 98SE/Me will automatically assign the COM port number according to the OS specifications so that the port number cannot be fixed. This may cause the COM port number to be changed at the time of next rebooting of the host computer if (1) you have connected the scanner to the COM port first time or (2) you have changed the configuration as given below: - Changing the number of the scanner units connected to the COM ports - Changing the COM port to which the scanner or hub is connected. In such a case, reboot the host computer, open the device manager, and check the COM port number actually assigned by OS before use. ④ To use two or more communications processors (software) or scanners concurrently on your computer, be sure to assign a unique COM port to each of them. 6 Installation procedure Follow the procedure shown below to install the USB-COM device driver that comes with the scanner in a CD-ROM. • The CD-ROM includes drivers for Windows 98SE/Me and those for Windows 2000/XP, and an exclusive uninstaller which can be commonly used with all Windows versions. • To uninstall these drivers, use the exclusive uninstaller. • For Windows 2000/XP, administrative permission (Administrator Login) is necessary to install/uninstall drivers.

The marker beam comes on, indicating the scan range. Align the center of the marker beam with that of the target code. (This step is not required in continuous reading modes 1, 2 and auto sensing mode.) Scan range Marker beam Scanning distance Indicator LED Trigger switch (2) Wait for the indicator LED to turn green, the beeper to sound and the vibrator to operate, indicating a successful read. Note: The actual scan range is narrower than the marker range. The scan range is approx. 2.4" (6 cm) wide by 1.6" (4 cm) high when the scanning distance is approx. 3.9" (10 cm). Note: The marker range should only be used as a guide. It does not assure that a code within the marker range can be read. Note: Allow only a single code to come within the scan range except when the multi-line code scanning is allowed. If two or more codes fall within the scan range at the same time, the scanner may fail to read or read those codes in alternation. Note: The scanner can read codes omnidirectionally. Note that a target code plus its margin should lie within the scan range. Note: If the scanner fails to read due to specular effects or other factors, change the scanning angle of the reading window or the distance from the codes, and repeat the process. (Specular effects occur when the reflection of the light from the label surface is too strong, such as when the reflecting surface is polished or covered with vinyl.) ④ Scanning mode Regular read mode This mode transfers the code data when the scanner has read the code successfully. Data verification mode This mode verifies the code data against the master data stored in the scanner. (Refer to Chapter 8, Section 8.1 for details.) 19 Chapter 5 Customizing the Scanner You can customize the scanner by modifying communications conditions, readable code types, and other scanner parameters with the QR-coded parameter menu or the configuration software ScannerSetting_2D*. These parameters retain their settings even when the power is off. (1) Scanning parameter setting QR Code symbols in the QR-coded parameter menu by pressing the trigger switch. (The QR-coded parameter menu is given in Chapter 13.) (2) Using the configuration software (ScannerSetting 2D)* in your computer. The configuration software also offers batch-process QR Code printouts for ready by scanners in the field. Those printouts can be scanned by the scanner. Note: Selecting the USB keyboard interface disables the configuration software. * The configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) can be downloaded for free from our website at denso-wave.com/. 20 Chapter 6 Scanning Control Two types of scanning controls are available--Trigger switch control and Software control. Trigger switch control: Pressing the trigger switch readies the scanner for scanning. (Refer to Section 6.1.) Software control: Instead of pressing the trigger switch, you send control commands from the host computer via the USB interface to ready the scanner for scanning or put the scanner on standby. (Refer to Section 6.3.) 6.1 Trigger switch control Pressing the trigger switch turns on the illumination LEDs and readies the scanner for scanning. The scanner supports the following five trigger switch operating modes. Select the one that best meets your needs using the QR-coded parameter menu or the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). (1) Auto-off mode Holding down the trigger switch lights the illumination LEDs for a maximum of 5 seconds, during which the scanner is ready to scan. When a code is read successfully or approx. 5 seconds have elapsed, the illumination LEDs automatically go off and the scanner switches to standby. If the trigger switch is released within approx. 5 seconds, the scanner switches to standby. (2) Momentary switching mode Only while you hold down the trigger switch, the illumination LEDs light and the scanner is ready to scan. When you release the trigger switch or a code is read successfully, the illumination LEDs go off and the scanner switches to standby. (3) Alternate switching mode Each time you press the trigger switch, the scanner toggles between the ready-to-scan and standby states. (4) Continuous reading mode 1 When you turn the scanner on, the scanner lights the illumination LEDs and becomes ready to scan. The scanner ignores all trigger switch input. If the scanner receives the Z, READOFF or LOFF command, it switches to standby; if it receives the R, READON or LON command, it becomes ready to scan. You can select whether or not the scanner transmits the ERROR command when the scanner cannot complete scanning and switches to standby, using the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). (5) Continuous reading mode 2 This mode is functionally equivalent to the continuous reading mode 1, except that the scanner waits for a command upon completion of scanning. To become ready to scan, the scanner should receive the Z, READOFF or LOFF command to switch to standby and then receive the R, READON or LON command. You can select whether or not the scanner transmits the ERROR command when the scanner cannot complete scanning and switches to standby, using the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). Note: When you are setting parameters using the QR-coded parameter menu, the scanner is always in the auto-off mode regardless of the trigger switch operating mode selected. Note: The trigger switch is disabled as long as the scan lock (refer to Chapter 8, Section 8.1.3) is in effect in the data verification mode. 21 6.2 Programmable trigger switch The configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) provides a choice of three functions each for the fully depressed and halfway positions of the trigger switch. Scan: The switch position turns on the marker beam and scans a code. Marker: The switch position turns on the marker beam. None: The switch position does nothing. Note, however, that the setting for the halfway position overrides the one for the fully depressed position if it has a higher priority--that is, appears earlier in the above list. Specifying "Scan" for the halfway position and "Marker" for the fully depressed position, for example, produces scanning for both positions. 6.3 Software control You can control the scanner by sending scanning control commands from the host computer via the USB interface, instead of pressing the trigger switch. Scanning control commands include R, READON, LON, Z, READOFF and LOFF and are restricted by the trigger switch operating modes, as listed below. (√ : Command valid) Trigger switch operating modes

Commands Description Auto-off mode Momentary switching mode Alternate switching mode Continuous reading mode 1 Continuous reading mode 2

R, READON, LON Z, READOFF, LOFF Ready-to-scan commands Upon receipt of one of these commands, the scanner lights the illumination LEDs and becomes ready to scan. Standby commands Upon receipt of one of these commands, the scanner turns off the illumination LEDs and switches to standby. -- -- -- √ √ -- -- -- √ √

Each of these commands should be enclosed with a header and terminator for transmission according to the communications conditions of the scanner. 22 6.4 Auto sensing mode--Automatic detection of labels In Auto sensing mode, bringing a code label within the scan range of the reading window turns on the illumination LEDs and makes the scanner read the code. No trigger switch operation is required. Use this mode when the scanner is stationary to a stand and a code label is moved. The illumination LEDs come on when you bring a code label within the designated range or move a code label within the same range. These LEDs go off when a code label is moved away from the range or stays within the range without move for approx. 3 seconds. The scanner offers a choice of three sensitivity levels for responding to codes. Switch to a higher sensitivity level if the illumination LEDs will not come on when a code is brought into the range, for example. Note: Even if you do not bring a code label within the scan range, the illumination LEDs may come on when the ambient level of light changes or any shadows move within the scan range. Note: To enable the scanner to work properly in the auto sensing mode, an ambient illuminance of at least 500 lx is required. 23 Chapter 7 Magic Key Control The magic key can act as an auxiliary key for scanning or data transfer. You can assign any of the following six functions or no function at all to the magic key. Select the function that best meets your needs using the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). (1) Readable code switching function Each time you press the magic key, the scanner switches between two readable codes selected in advance with the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). Using this function allows the scanner to also read codes that you have disabled for scanning. Pressing the magic key five times within 2 seconds temporarily disables this function to allow the scanner to read codes other than the two pre-selected codes. Pressing the magic key again re-enables this function. (2) Data retransfer function Pressing the magic key retransfers the last data sent. Note, however, that the scanner ignores this command if there is no such data available--that is, if you have turned off the power since the last read operation. (3) Specific character transfer function Pressing the magic key transfers a character sequence (max. 10 bytes) specified with the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). (4) Ready/standby switching function When continuous reading mode 1 or 2 is selected as a trigger switch operating mode, pressing the magic key switches the scanner state between standby and ready-to-scan. If the notification of a reading failure function is enabled, switching from ready to standby state before scanning is completed will send the ERROR command to the host computer. (5) Marker mode switching function Pressing the magic key switches the marker mode between the "Always ON" and the current marker setting. (6) Barcode reader mode switching function Pressing the magic key switches between the normal reader mode and barcode reader mode (see Section 8.3) regardless of the current barcode reader mode setting (enabled or disabled). In the barcode reader mode, the point scan mode (see Section 8.4) becomes disabled, even if it has been enabled with the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). (7) No function If no function has been assigned to the magic key, pressing the key produces no operation. 24 The following table lists the relationship between the magic key functions and trigger switch operating modes. (It applies to both the regular read mode and data verification mode.) The "--" indicates that the scanner ignores the magic key functions assigned. In Auto-off mode, for example, the ready/standby switching function is ignored. Trigger switch operating modes

Temporarily canceling the barcode reader mode Selecting the barcode reader mode (see Chapter 8, Section 8.3) when the USB keyboard interface is used disables both the QR-coded parameter menu and configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). To enable them, hold down the magic key for approx. 2 seconds to temporarily cancel the barcode reader mode. Completing the parameter modification with the QR-coded parameter menu or configuration software restores the barcode reader mode. Switching the interface Turning the scanner on with the magic key being held down switches from the current interface to another one; from USB-COM interface to USB keyboard interface or vice versa. Completion of switching to the USB-COM interface lights the indicator LED in blue and to the USB keyboard interface, in orange. The interface setting will be retained even when the power is off. 25 Chapter 8 Scanning Functions 8.1 Data verification mode The data verification mode verifies the code data read against the master data stored in the scanner and reports the match status with data output. You can set the verification parameters with the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). There are two ways to register master data--"Preset master registration" and "Scanning master registration." The former refers to registration that you make with the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) in advance; the latter can be made by scanning a code label. 8.1.1 Verification setup procedure (1) Preset master registration Register the code type and data to be used for verification using the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). Up to 99 digits can be registered. The registered data will be sent to the host computer when you scan the "Output master data code" given on page 28. The registered master data will be preserved even if the scanner is turned off. To clear it, first clear the registered master data stored in the host computer with the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) and then send the new setting data to the scanner. (2) Scanning master registration Scan a code to be registered as master data in the following way: 1) Place the scanner in the data verification mode and hold down the magic key for approx. 2 seconds. (The indicator LED should light in green.) 2) With the magic key held down, press the trigger switch to read the master code to be registered. (The scanner operates in the trigger switch operating mode currently set.) During the registration operation above, if the master data has fewer characters than specified (e.g., less than the specified verification start position), the registration operation aborts with an error. Even if "Preset master registration" has been made, you can make "Scanning master registration." If both "Preset master registration" and "Scanning master registration" have been made, the number of characters to verify that has been set with the "Preset master registration" and the master data that has been set with the "Scanning master registration" will be valid. The registered data will be sent to the host computer when you scan the "Output master data code" given on page 28. Note: The registered master data will be cleared when: - the scanner is turned off, - you change the parameters of the verification start position or the number of characters to be verified, or - the verification conditions are updated with the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D), by scanning a batch-process QR Code printout, or by scanning the QR-coded parameter menu. Note: You can register a code as master data any number of times as long the indicator LED is lit in green by pressing the magic key. The code that is read last becomes the final master data. Note: If no master data has been entered by either the preset master entry or scanning master entry, the indicator LED flashes in red, during which it is impossible to scan codes. 26 8.1.2 Specifying a verification object You can specify two types of verification objects--data string and data block. For data string verification, you specify the verification start position and the number of characters to be verified. For data block verification, you specify one of the data blocks delimited by commas in the CSV format. (1) Data string verification The scanner verifies data specified by the verification start position and the number of characters to be verified against the master data registered in the scanner, and then it outputs the verification result. The verification start position should be within the range of 1 to 999, and the number of characters to be verified, within the range of 1 to 99. In any of the following cases, the verification results in a mismatch: 1) The verification data in the specified position does not match the master data. 2) The code type which the verification data belongs to is different from the one that the master data belongs to (see the note below). 3) All data specified is not included or no data is included within the specified range. (Examples)

Master data registered Verification start position No. of characters to be verified Data string read (Verification object) Result

345 3 3 00345 Match 345 3 3 00345678 Match 345 3 3 00346 Mismatch 345 3 3 0034 Mismatch (2) Data block verification If data is saved in the comma-delimited CSV format, the scanner verifies data in the specified data block against the master data registered in the scanner, and then outputs the verification result. The data block position should be within the range of 1 to 99. In any of the following cases, the verification results in a mismatch: 1) The verification data in the specified block does not match the master data. 2) The code type which the verification data belongs to is different from the one that the master data belongs to (See the note below). 3) All data specified is not included or no data is included within the specified block. 4) The data block to be verified exceeds 99 characters in length (Examples) Master data

registered Position of data block to be verified Data block read (Verification object) Result

345 3 0,12,345,6789 Match 345 3 0,12,346,6789 Mismatch 345 3 0,12,3456,6789 Mismatch 345 3 0,12,34,6789 Mismatch 345 3 0,12 Mismatch Note: Whether the code ID mark is matched or not is determined not by the combination of code ID marks Type 1 and Type 2 but by Type 1 only (refer to Chapter 10, Section 10.3). 27 8.1.3 Verification result output (1) Report of match/mismatch status You can select any of the following report types using the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). Selecting "Disable transmission" reports nothing. Setting If there is a match: If there is a mismatch: 1 Disable transmission. Disable transmission. 2 Enable code data transmission. Disable transmission. 3 Enable code data transmission. Enable NG transmission. 4 Enable OK transmission. Enable NG transmission. (2) Beeper, indicator LED and vibrator You can check whether the verification result is a match or mismatch with the beeper, indicator LED and vibrator. When the beeper, indicator LED and vibrator are enabled, they act as shown below. Vibrator Beeper Indicator LED "OK" vibrations "NG" vibrations If there is a match: Emits a short beep. Lights in blue. Operates. -- If there is a mismatch: Emits a long beep. Lights in red. -- Operates. (3) Scan lock The scan lock function locks the scanner on standby if the verification result is a mismatch. You can enable or disable this function with the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). Once the scanner is locked, it switches to standby regardless of the current trigger switch control selected. The scanner remains on standby even if the trigger switch is pressed or a ready-to-scan command (R, READON or LON) is received. Pressing the magic key or turning off the scanner releases the scan lock. Output of the master data registered Scanning the "Output master data" QR Code symbol given below lets the scanner output the verification section of master data entered in the verification setup procedure, together with the code ID mark. "Output master data" code 28 8.2 Editing data You can edit and output code data read in the "data extraction mode" or "delimited-text format conversion mode" that is selected in the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). The default is "No editing." Note: In the case of multi-line bar codes, unless all code ID marks read are matched, the data editing process will result in an error regardless of whether or not the data read contains any error. Whether the code ID mark is matched is determined not by the combination of code ID marks Type 1 and Type 2 but by Type 1 only (refer to Chapter 10, Section 10.3). 8.2.1 Data extraction mode This mode offers three extraction choices--"data string," "data block" and "AI (Application Identifier)-prefixed string" extractions from code data read and then outputs it. The "data block" extraction is possible only when code data is in the comma-delimited CSV format. The "AI-prefixed string" extraction is available for EAN-128, RSS, and EAN.UCC Composite symbols (excluding linear components in a UPC/EAN Composite symbol). 8.2.1.1 Extracting a data string The scanner extracts a data string specified by the "Extraction start position" and "Extraction end position" from a code specified by the "Code type" and then outputs it in the data transmission format selected in the scanner (see Chapter 10, Section 10.3). The extraction conditions and extraction start and end positions are listed below. ④ Extraction conditions Extraction conditions Choices

32 8.2.1.3 Extracting AI (Application Identifier)-prefixed strings If the scanner reads an EAN-128, RSS, or EAN.UCC Composite symbol (excluding linear components in a UPC/EAN Composite symbol), it edits the data according to AIs and outputs it in the data transmission format selected in the scanner (see Chapter 10, Section 10.3). The "AI-prefixed string" extraction is available in two modes--AI-delimited mode and AI parenthesizing mode. AIs to be used for data editing are listed in (3) AI table later. (1) AI-delimited mode In this mode, the scanner extracts strings prefixed with AIs specified (up to three types of AIs) and separates them with the specified delimiters (selectable from headers/terminators, commas and tabs) instead of AIs to output them. ④ Extraction conditions Extraction conditions Choices "Data transfer regardless of error result" Permit/Prohibit If the scanner fails to extract an AI-prefixed string when the "Data transfer regardless of error result" is permitted, it outputs the data read as is without editing. ④ Delimiters Delimiters can be any of the following three--header/terminator, comma and tab. • Header/terminator Specifying a header/terminator as delimiters prefixes a header and suffixes a terminator to each element string separated. A prefix, suffix, the number of digits, and code ID mark can be also added to each element string if their transmissions are enabled. The number of digits is the count of each element string edited. Example Data read: (01)94901234567894(11)030808(13)030810 Code ID mark: Disable, Header: STX, Terminator: ETX, Transmission of the number of digits: Enable, BCC: Disable, Prefix/Suffix: None AIs specified Output data 01,11,13 [STX]001494901234567894[ETX][STX]0006030808[ETX][STX]0006030810[ETX] • Comma Specifying a comma as delimiters outputs comma-delimited data. No comma follows the tail of the data. A header and terminator are added to the full string. None of a prefix, suffix, the number of digits, and code ID mark is added even if their transmissions are enabled. Example Data read: (01)94901234567894(11)030808(13)030810 Code ID mark: Disable, Header: STX, Terminator: ETX, Transmission of the number of digits: Disable, BCC: Disable, Prefix/Suffix: None AIs specified Output data 01,11,13 [STX]94901234567894,030808,030810[ETX] • Tab (ASCII 09H (HT)) Specifying a tab as delimiters outputs tab-delimited data. No tab follows the tail of the data. A header and terminator are added to the full string. None of a prefix, suffix, the number of digits, and code ID mark is added even if their transmissions are enabled. Example Data read: (01)94901234567894(11)030808(13)030810 Code ID mark: Disable, Header: STX, Terminator: ETX, Transmission of the number of digits: Disable, BCC: Disable, Prefix/Suffix: None AIs specified Output data 01,11,13 [STX]94901234567894[TAB]030808[TAB]030810[ETX] 33 Example Data read: (01)94901234567894(11)030808(13)030810(17)040208(17)040305 Code ID mark: Disable, Header: STX, Terminator: ETX, Transmission of the number of digits: Disable, BCC: Disable, Prefix/Suffix: None Extraction conditions AIs specified Delimiter Output data

(Note 2) If data read contains two or more element strings prefixed with the same AI, those element strings will be output in the order arranged in that data read. (Note 3) If data read does not contain a string prefixed with the specified AI or it contains such data but its number of digits is more or less than the one defined for that AI, an error will result when the "Data transfer regardless of error result" is prohibited. 34 (2) AI parenthesizing mode In this mode, the scanner parenthesizes AIs contained in data read and output the edited data according to the extraction conditions. ④ Extraction conditions Extraction conditions Choices "Data transfer regardless of error result" Permit/Prohibit If the scanner fails to extract an AI-prefixed element string when the "Data transfer regardless of error result" is permitted, it outputs the data read as is without editing.

Note: In the case of multi-line bar codes, unless all code ID marks read are matched, the data editing process will result in an error regardless of whether or not the data read contains any error. Whether the code ID mark is matched is determined not by the combination of code ID marks Type 1 and Type 2 but by Type 1 only (refer to Chapter 10, Section 10.3). 41 8.3 Barcode reader mode The barcode reader mode limits the vertical readable area to 15% at the center portion, as shown below, and the skew angle within the range of 6° ≥ θ ≥ -6°. In this mode, the scanning time required is shorter than that in the normal reader mode. However, the scanner cannot read 2D codes or multi-line bar codes. The barcode reader mode and the point scan mode (see Section 8.4) cannot be enabled concurrently. The one set last will be enabled. Selecting the barcode reader mode when the USB keyboard interface is used disables the QR-coded parameter menu and configuration software. To enable them, hold down the magic key for approx. 2 seconds to temporarily cancel the barcode reader mode. (See Chapter 7.) Readable area in the normal reader mode Readable area in the barcode reader mode (hatched section) 8.4 Point scan mode In the point scan mode, you can aim at a target code by matching up the center spot of the marker beam with that code. If there is no code at that center spot or the scanner cannot detect the marker beam due to high levels of ambient lighting, the scanner cannot read anything. The point scan mode takes effect only when the marker is permitted to light. The point scan mode and the barcode reader mode (see Section 8.3) cannot be enabled concurrently. The one set last will be enabled. 8.5 Scanning a mirror image 2D code If you enable the mirror image scanning with the QR-coded parameter menu or the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D), the scanner can scan a mirror image 2D code as well as a normal image. Note that when the mirror image scanning is enabled, the time required for scanning may increase. 8.6 Scanning a black-and-white inverted code The scanner usually scans a black-and-white normal code (black cells/bars on a white background). You can switch the scanner to scan a black-and-white inverted code (white cells/bars on a black background) or to scan both types of codes while automatically identifying them, using the QR-coded parameter menu or the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). Note that the automatic detection scanning may take more time than normal code or inverted code scanning. A black-and-white inverted code requires a black quiet zone of more than the number of cells defined in the code specifications. 42 8.7 Scanning split QR Code symbols QR Code symbology can split data into a maximum of 16 blocks and encode each of them into a split QR Code symbol (model 1 or 2). Split QR Code scanning is possible only with the same QR Code model. The scanner can scan split QR Code symbols and restore them to the original data string in edit mode, batch edit mode, and non-edit mode, which you can select using the QR-coded parameter menu. Edit mode The scanner accumulates and edits split QR Code symbols read and then sends the edited data to the host computer. If the total data volume of split QR Code symbols exceeds 8 kilobytes, a read error will result and the accumulated data will be discarded. Batch edit mode If all the split QR Code symbols to be scanned lie within the readable area, the scanner reads them all once and then edits and sends them to the host computer. Non-edit mode Each time a single split QR Code symbol is read, the scanner sends the data read to the host computer. When scanning split QR Code symbols, the scanner beeps in a different way from usual. That is, when the scanner reads the first split code, it beeps twice and enters the split code scanning mode. When the scanner completes the sequence of split code scanning, it beeps three times. Note: If you scan any non-split QR code or a code other than a QR code midway through a sequence of split QR code scanning, the scanner cancels the split code scanning, discards the split QR codes already scanned, and sends the code scanned last. Note: If the scanner switches to standby in auto-off mode (after approx. 5 seconds of holding down the trigger switch or by releasing the trigger switch within 5 seconds) or the split code scanning interval exceeds approx. 3 seconds, then the scanner discards the data scanned and cancels the split code scanning sequence. Note: If you scan a split code of any other QR Code before completion of the current scanning sequence, the scanner discards the data already scanned and starts a new scanning sequence. 43 8.8 Multi-line barcode scanning The scanner can scan up to 3 lines of bar codes in the readable area at any one time. You can specify the number of lines to be scanned, the data output order and output format using the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). 8.8.1 Number of lines The number of lines allowed for multi-line barcode scanning is 2 or 3. This setting is essential. 8.8.2 Data output order You can specify the data output order by designating code types*1, heading characters*2, or the number of digits to be scanned*3. *1 Code types should be selected from readable bar codes you enable. This setting is essential. *2 Up to two heading characters can be specified. If a question mark (?) is specified, it acts as a wild card. This setting can be omitted. *3 The number of digits to be scanned varies depending upon the code type. This setting is essential. 8.8.3 Output format You may select either the header/terminator- or comma-delimited output format. (1) Header/terminator-delimited output format Specifying this format allows the scanner to output multiple lines of barcode data in succession in the data transmission format selected (see Section 10.3) so that the headers and terminators act as delimiters. For UPC and EAN codes, the number of digits will be omitted. (2) Comma-delimited output format Specifying this format allows the scanner to output multiple lines of barcode data delimited with commas in the data transmission format selected (see Section 10.3). Note that the scanner outputs the code ID mark specified for the first line barcode and the number of digits including the delimiter commas. The number of digits will not be omitted even for UPC and EAN codes. Note 1: Bar code types specified for multi-line barcode scanning cannot be read individually. Note 2: In the point scan mode or barcode reader mode, the scanning conditions specified for multi-line barcode scanning are invalid so that the scanner scans codes individually. Note 3: The scanner cannot read multi-line barcodes of UPC/EAN with add-on. Note 4: If linear components in a UPC/EAN Composite symbol are specified for multi-line barcode scanning, EAN.UCC Composite symbols including the specified linear components cannot be read. 44 Chapter 9 Beeper, Indicator LED, Vibrator and Marker Beam 9.1 Beeper (1) Beeping The scanner emits a short or long beeps, once or a couple of times as described below. The beeper emits a short beep when: - the scanner has read a code successfully, - code data read matches the master data in the data verification mode, - the scanner has read a split QR code, - data transfer is started by the data retransfer function or specific character transfer function, - readable codes are switched by the readable code switching function, or - the "Start setting" or "End setting" code is read (3 beeps) or the parameter setting QR Code symbols are read (1 beep) from the QR-coded parameter menu (given in Chapter 13), - the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) starts up or accepts new settings (3 beeps), - the scanner has read a batch-process QR Code symbol generated with the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) (3 beeps), or - the barcode reader mode is restored after temporarily canceled (1 beep slightly longer). The beeper emits a long beep when: - code data read does not match the master data in the data verification mode, - the scanner has read split QR codes in the edit mode to the point that the accumulated data exceeds 8 kilobytes, - a master code has the wrong number of digits during registration of master data, - a code other than a parameter setting code is read during parameter setting by the QR-coded parameter menu, - a transmission error or timeout occurred when the scanner was communicating with the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D), - a communications error has occurred, - an invalid control command is received, or - the previously sent data is not available at the time of data retransfer (using the magic key). You can disable the beeper using the QR-coded parameter menu or configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). In any of the following cases, however, the beeper sounds regardless of that beeper setting: - when you make settings by scanning the QR-coded parameter menu, - when the scanner receives a beeper-ON command from the host computer, - when the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) starts up or any setting you have made is established, - when the scanner reads a batch-process QR Code symbol, and - when the parameter values are saved by a PW command (refer to Appendix 2). (2) Adjusting the beeper volume You can adjust the beeper volume to three levels--high, medium and low--using the QR-coded parameter menu or configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). The factory default is High. Each time the "Beeper volume" QR Code symbol is read, the beeper volume cycles as shown below. High Medium Low Even if the scanner is turned off, this setting will be retained. 45 9.2 Indicator LED The indicator LED lights or flashes in blue, green, red or orange as described below. The indicator LED lights in blue when: - the scanner has read a code successfully, - the "Start setting" or "End setting" code is read from the QR-coded parameter menu (given in Chapter 13), - the scanner starts or ends a sequence of split QR Code scanning, - the scanner has read a split QR Code symbol, or - the parameter values are saved by a PW command (refer to Appendix 2). The indicator LED lights in green when: - data transfer is started by the data retransfer function, - the scanner has read a code successfully with the readable code switching function or barcode reader mode switching function enabled, - data transfer is started by the specific character transfer function, or - you hold down the magic key for approx. 2 seconds to make the scanner ready to accept registration of a master code, or - the barcode reader mode is temporarily canceled. The indicator LED lights in red when: - a send/receive error or command error has occurred, - code data read does not match the master data in the data verification mode, - a master code has the wrong number of digits during registration of master data, - the data retransfer function failed to transfer data, - a code other than a parameter setting code is read during parameter setting by the QR-coded parameter menu, - you press the magic key that has been disabled by a control command (refer to Appendix 2) specifying any trigger switch operating mode other than continuous reading modes 1 and 2 even though the ready/standby switching function has been assigned to the magic key, or - the scanner is locked due to a mismatch in the data verification mode. The indicator LED flashes in red when: - no master data has been registered in the data verification mode. The indicator LED lights in blue and orange alternately when: - you switch between two readable codes using the switching function, - you switch between the normal reader mode and barcode reader mode using the barcode reader mode switching function, or - you switch between the USB-COM interface and USB keyboard interface by turning the scanner on with the magic key being held down. 46 You can disable the indicator LED with the QR-coded parameter menu or configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). Regardless of such setting, however, the indicator LED comes on when: - the scanner is being customized with the QR-coded parameter menu, - the scanner receives an LED-ON command (LB, LG or LR) from the host computer (refer to Appendix 2), - the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) starts up or any setting is newly established, - the scanner reads a batch-process QR Code symbol, - the parameter values are saved by a PW command (refer to Appendix 2), - a master code is being registered or the registration is completed, - any error has occurred during registration of a master code, - the verification result is a mismatch, the scanner is locked or no master data has been registered in the data verification mode, - data transfer has been completed or there is no previous data to be retransferred using the data retransfer function, - data transfer has been completed by the specific character transfer function, - the setting status of the readable code switching function is displayed, - you press the magic key that has been disabled by a control command (refer to Appendix 2) specifying any trigger switch operating mode other than continuous reading modes 1 and 2 even though the ready/standby switching function has been assigned to the magic key, - the setting status of the barcode reader mode switching function is displayed, and - a hardware error has occurred. 47 9.3 Vibrator The QR-coded parameter menu and configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) provide three configuration choices: indicating successful scanning (OK), indicating an error (NG), and disabled. The OK setting uses the vibrator to indicate the following. - Successful transmission of the bar code data just read - In data verification mode, a match between the bar code data just read and a master data entry - In data verification mode, successful entry of master data - Scanning of a split QR Code symbol - In batch edit mode, successful transmission of a split QR Code sequence - End of data transmission started by the retransfer or specific character transfer function - Change in list of readable codes - Scanning of "Start setting," "End setting," or parameter setting code from the QR-coded parameter menu (given in Chapter 13) - Start or end of parameter setting with the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) - Scanning of a batch-process QR Code symbol generated with the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) - the barcode reader mode is restored after temporarily canceled The NG setting uses the vibrator to indicate the following. - Wrong number of digits in data for new master data entry - In data verification mode, failure to find a match in the master data for the bar code data just read - In edit mode, a split QR Code sequence containing over 8 kilobytes of data - Failure to find a match in the master data for the split QR Code sequence just read - Detection of a code other than a parameter setting one during a parameter setting sequence using the QR-coded parameter menu - Data transmission failure: CTS at "L" level - No ACK response received in the ACK/NAK mode - Invalid control command (See Appendix 2) - No data to resend (See the data retransfer function in Chapter 6) - Timeout or other communications error during parameter setting with the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) Note: It is recommended that the vibrator be disabled when the scanner is stationary to a stand. 48 9.4 Marker beam The red marker beam (semiconductor laser) comes on to indicate the scanning area as a guide. The marker provides a choice of the three modes--Normal marker mode, marker-OFF mode and marker-ON mode that can be selected by using the QR-coded parameter menu or the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). (1) Normal marker mode The following description assumes that "Marker" is specified for the halfway position of the trigger switch and "Scan" for the fully depressed position. When the trigger switch is in auto-off mode: Holding down the trigger switch halfway turns on the marker beam for approx. 30 seconds. When the scanner is ready to scan (that is, within approx. 5 seconds from the full depression of the trigger switch or until completion of reading from that), the marker beam remains on. If you release the trigger switch when the scanner is ready, the marker beam will go off. When the trigger switch is in momentary switching mode or alternate switching mode: In the momentary switching mode, holding down the trigger switch halfway turns on the marker beam for a maximum of 30 seconds. When the scanner is ready to scan (that is, while the trigger switch is fully held down in the momentary switching mode or when the scanner is ready to scan in the alternate switching mode), the marker beam remains on. When the scanner is on standby (that is, the trigger switch is released in the momentary switching mode or when the scanner is on standby in the alternate switching mode), the marker beam will go off. When the trigger switch is in continuous reading mode 1 or 2: Turning the scanner on activates the marker and keeps it on. If the scanner receives the Z, READOFF or LOFF command, it turns off the marker beam; if it receives the R, READON or LON command, it keeps the marker beam on. When the trigger switch is in auto sensing mode When the scanner senses a code coming into the readable area and becomes ready to scan, it automatically turns on the marker beam. After approx. 3 seconds from completion of scanning or if scanning is not completed within approx. 3 seconds, the scanner switches to standby and turns off the marker beam. (2) Marker-OFF mode The marker beam will not come on under any conditions. (3) Marker-ON mode When the scanner switches to standby, the marker beam is turned on for approx. 30 seconds. When it is ready to scan, the marker beam remains on. 49 Chapter 10 Communication This scanner is compliant with USB 1.1 (Universal Serial Bus Specification Revision 1.1). 10.1 USB-COM interface Installing the dedicated USB-COM device driver to the host computer allows the USB-COM interface to operate in communications applications using the conventional serial port. ④ Notes for use • In Windows 2000/XP, if you connect the scanner to your computer first time or have changed the COM port for the scanner or hub, then confirm the COM port number on the Windows device manager or the like before use. • Windows 98SE/Me will automatically assign the COM port number according to the OS specifications so that the port number cannot be fixed. This may cause the COM port number to be changed at the time of next rebooting of the host computer if (1) you have connected the scanner to the COM port first time or (2) you have changed the configuration as given below: - Changing the number of the scanner units connected to the COM ports - Changing the COM port to which the scanner or hub is connected. In such a case, reboot the host computer, open the device manager, and check the COM port number actually assigned by OS before use. • If you want to use two or more communications processors (software) or scanners concurrently on your computer, be sure to assign a unique COM port number to each of them. • If the host computer switches to the suspend mode when any communications software is running and recovers from that suspend mode, the software may freeze in some computers. Quit and restart the software. • It is not necessary to make settings such as transmission speed, data bits, parity, and stop bits (which are required for communications software using a conventional serial port) since the USB interface ignores those settings. The flow control should be set to "Hardware (RTS/CTS)" or "None." • The virtual COM port on the computer and the scanner are connected with each other as shown below. Computer Scanner

You can select either non-acknowledge mode or ACK/NAK mode. Non-acknowledge mode (default) If the CTS signal is at a high level (Enable transmission), the scanner transmits code data read. Note: The configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) provides a choice of CTS timeout settings from 100 ms to 9.9 s in 100-ms increments and two CTS signal control choices Yes and No. ACK/NAK mode If the CTS signal is at high level (Enable transmission), the scanner transmits code data read. After that, the scanner waits for and then processes a response. If the response is an ACK, the scanner normally ends the transmission; if it is a NAK, the scanner transmits the code data again. Note: The configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D) provides a choice of CTS timeout and ACK/NAK response time settings each from 100 ms to 9.9 s in 100-ms increments. 50 10.2 USB keyboard interface The USB keyboard interface requires no dedicated device driver. Data read by the scanner can be entered to the cursor position in your application. The USB keyboard interface operates in conformity with the following: - Universal Serial Bus (USB) Device Class Definition for Human Interface Devices (HID) Version 1.11 - Universal Serial Bus (USB) HID Usage Tables Version 1.11 keyboard (1) CAPS Lock state Select the CAPS Lock ON or OFF to match the state of the connected keyboard. (Default: CAPS Lock OFF) (2) Keyboard type Select the type of the connected keyboard. (Default: Type 101, US English) (3) Numeric data transmission format Select the "inboard numeric keys" or "numeric keypad" on the connected keyboard. (Default: Inboard numeric keys) (4) Binary conversion Select the conversion type to be applied to data read, from the following: - "No conversion" (ASCII) (default) : Outputs 00h to 7Fh data in ASCII format bytewise. Selecting this parameter does not output 80h to FFh data. - "Binary conversion" : Converts 00h to FFh data to binary format and outputs it bytewise. - "Kanji conversion" : Converts 00h to FFh data to Shift-JIS format and outputs it, two bytes at a time. If there is any data to which this Kanji conversion cannot apply, it converts such data to binary format and outputs it bytewise instead. Note that some applications may fail to output converted data as it is displayed. (5) Data transmission interval Select the data transmission interval to be applied when the scanner sends data read to the host computer. There are seven choices from 3 ms to 100 ms (default: 10 ms). 51 10.3 Communication format ④ Data transmission format Select one of the following two data transmission formats. No. of digits Header Code ID mark Prefix n1 n2 n3 n4Code data Suffix Terminator BCC No. of digits Header Prefix Code ID mark n1 n2 n3 n4Code data Suffix Terminator BCC (1) Header/Terminator The following choices are available. USB-COM interface Header: None (default) or STX Terminator: CR (default), LF, CR/LF or ETX USB keyboard interface Header: None (default), TAB, ESC, ENTER or others Terminator: None, TAB, ESC, ENTER (default) or others For details, refer to Chapter 12. (2) Prefix/Suffix A prefix or suffix consists of up to eight ASCII characters (00h to FFh). You can set a prefix or suffix with the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). (Default: No prefix or suffix) (3) BCC The Block Character Check (BCC) exclusive-ORs all bits at the same bit level in characters following the header and preceding the terminator in a transmission block to generate a horizontal parity byte to be transferred in a binary code. The BCC can be enabled or disabled. If no header is prefixed or the USB keyboard interface is selected, no BCC will be transferred. 52 (4) Code ID mark This optional field specifies the code system. It offers four combinations with two code ID marks (Type 1 and Type 2) and two output modes (coupling and separating) as listed below. You can also select whether or not to transmit the code ID mark. (Default: No transmission) Code ID mark Code type Type 1 Type 2 (Note 1) Coupling Separating Coupling Separating

(For details about the code ID mark, refer to (4) Code ID mark on pages 53 to 55.) 58 Chapter 11 Image Capturing 11.1 Outline The scanner supports image capturing that allows you to capture a graphic as a bitmap (BMP) or JPEG image and output it to the host computer. The JPEG image offers three quality choices--standard, high, and low. The image size can be selected from standard VGA, 1/4 VGA and 1/16 VGA. If you select 1/4 VGA or 1/16 VGA, select also the output image area--the full image area or the center portion of the image area. When the full image area is selected, the scanner thins out the resolution of the full image area by skipping every other pixel so that the image quality becomes low; when the center portion is selected, the scanner extracts the center portion of the image area so that the visual area becomes smaller but the image quality does not change. The scanner can also output a thumbnail to help you aim at a target. The thumbnail images can be saved as a BMP or JPEG image in 1/64 VGA or 1/4 VGA, respectively. You can select the output format, image size, output image area and whether or not to use a thumbnail by modifying the parameters of the IMAGEOUT command. Note: Selecting the USB keyboard interface disables the image capturing function. 11.2 Image capturing specifications (1) Output file format BMP or JPEG file format (2) Image size and output image area Image size Number of pixels BMP JPEG Image output area Standard VGA 640 x 480 √ √ Full image area 1/4 VGA 320 x 240 √ √ Full or center portion of the image area 1/16 VGA 160 x 120 √ √ Full or center portion of the image area Thumbnail (1/64 VGA) 80 x 60 √ -- Full image area Thumbnail (1/4 VGA) 320 x 240 -- √ Full image area (3) Communications protocol for image transmission Xmodem 1K (4) Image output command IMAGEOUT#1#m#n Enable the thumbnail transmission IMAGEOUT#1#m#n#o Disable the thumbnail transmission The selections available for parameters l, m, n and o are as follows: l: Output file format B BMP J or J0 JPEG (Medium) J1 JPEG (High) J2 JPEG (Low) m: Image size 0 Standard VGA 2 1/4 VGA 4 1/16 VGA 59 n: Image output area F Full image area C Center portion of the image area o: Thumbnail 0 Disable thumbnail transmission 1 Enable thumbnail transmission of BMP images in 1/64 VGA 2 Enable thumbnail transmission of JPEG images in 1/4 VGA (5) Image capturing operation 1) Upon receipt of an IMAGEOUT command, the scanner captures an image, beeps three times, and switches to the image transmission mode (Xmodem 1K protocol). 2) When the thumbnail is enabled: The scanner transmits a thumbnail (BMP file in 1/64 VGA or JPEG file in 1/4 VGA) repeatedly. Pressing the trigger switch causes the scanner to beep once, capture an image, and start transmission (Xmodem 1K protocol). When the thumbnail is disabled: The scanner immediately captures an image and transmits it in the format specified by IMAGEOUT parameters (Xmodem 1K protocol). 3) Upon completion of transmission, the scanner beeps once and exits the image transmission mode. (6) Notes • Image transmission can only be command-controlled; it cannot be started by the QR-coded parameter menu. • When the scanner is in the image transmission mode, it cannot scan bar codes or 2D codes. The protocol is fixed to the Xmodem 1K. • Parameters of the IMAGEOUT command should be uppercase or numerical ASCII characters. • Transmission condition settings such as header, terminator and transmission speed for the image transmission are the same as those for ordinary commands. • Transmission speed and other conditions when the Xmodem 1K protocol is used are the same as those with the normal communications protocol (non-acknowledge mode or ACK/NAK mode). • Upon completion of image transmission, the scanner returns to the normal communications protocol (non-acknowledge mode or ACK/NAK mode). • In a JPEG file format, images are compression-converted, so the image quality may be lower. (7) Image transmission time required (Typical) The table below lists the typical image transmission time required from image capturing to conversion and transmission under the following conditions: Xmodem 1K and 115200 bps. However, this may vary according to the settings made in the host computer. Image size Output file format Image file size Image transmission time Standard VGA BMP 302 KB 15.5 sec. 1/4 VGA BMP 77 KB 4.2 sec. 1/16 VGA BMP 20 KB 1.2 sec. Thumbnail (1/64 VGA) BMP 6 KB 0.5 sec. Thumbnail (1/4 VGA) JPEG 4.8 KB 0.5 sec. Standard VGA JPEG 25 KB* 1.9 sec. * In a JPEG file format, images will be compression-converted, so the file size may vary, depending on images scanned (approx. 10 to 40 KB, usually 25 KB). No compression ratio can be specified. 60 Chapter 12 Parameters and Defaults The tables below list the parameters and their default values. You can change them using the QR-coded parameter menu or configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D). Note that shadowed parameters can only be set in the configuration software (ScannerSetting_2D).
