No other cradles are compatible with the DS8178. Cradle Latch Depression Beeper (Standard Range only) Figure 1-1 Digital Scanner Features Cradle Features NOTE For detailed information about connecting, using, and mounting the CR8178-SC and CR8178-PC cradles refer to the documentation included with each cradle (CR8178-SC Standard Cradle Quick Reference Guide, p/n MN-002784-xx and CR8178-SC Presentation Cradle Quick Reference Guide, p/n MN-002854-xx). The cradles serve as a charger, radio communication interface, and host communication interface for the DS8178 cordless digital scanner. There are two versions of the cradle: • The CR8178-SC cordless cradle sits on a desktop or mounts on a wall, and charges the DS8178 cordless digital scanner. This cradle also provides host communication by receiving scanner data via a Bluetooth radio, and sending that data to the host through an attached cable. The cable provides power to the cradle from the host or optional power supply if supported. • The CR8178-PC cordless presentation cradle sits on a desktop and charges the DS8178 cordless digital scanner while allowing bar code scanning in presentation mode. This cradle also provides host communication by receiving scanner data via a Bluetooth radio, and sending that data to the host through an attached cable. The cable provides power to the cradle from the host or optional power supply if supported. DO NOT use any scanner other than the DS8178 with CR8178-SC and CR8178-PC cradles. No other scanners are compatible with these cradles. NOTE For more information about communication between the digital scanner, cradle, and host, see Chapter 4, Radio Communications.

Connect the appropriate cable to the power supply and an AC power source, if necessary. This ensures detection of the host and prevent inadvertently back powering the cradle from improper detection of the host. 2. Insert the interface cable into the host port. 3. Insert the interface cable into the cradle’s host port. 4. For the CR8178-SC only, thread the interface cable under the interface cable support hook and run the cable along the interface cable groove (if applicable). 5. Pair the digital scanner to the cradle either by inserting it in the cradle (if Pair on Contacts is enabled) or by scanning the pairing bar code. 6. If necessary, scan the appropriate host bar code (for non-autodetected interfaces). Changing the Host Interface To connect to a different host, or to the same host through a different cable: 1. Unplug the interface cable from the host. 2. Unplug the power supply from the cradle, if a power supply is used. 3. Connect the interface cable to the new host, or the new interface cable to the existing host. 4. Reconnect the power supply, if required. 5. If necessary, scan the appropriate host bar code (for non-autodetected interfaces). Getting Started 1 - 5 Using a DC Power Supply The cradle can operate from host supplied power, if available. If host power is limited or not available, an external DC power supply can be used with certain host interface cables that support a power jack. An external power supply is recommended if fastest charging is required. CAUTION Always disconnect the DC power supply BEFORE disconnecting the cable to the host end or the cradle may not recognize the new host. Mounting the Cradle For detailed information on mounting the cradle, refer to the documentation included with the cradle.

The paper should be inserted vertically into the Document Capture Stand tab as shown in Figure 1-5. Insert paper behind tab. Figure 1-5 Image Capture Using the Document Capture Stand Fully extend the Document Capture Stand to scan the complete page. Sufficient lighting is required. Getting Started 1 - 7 DS8178 Battery/PowerCap IMPORTANT PowerCap requires firmware version CAACXS00-004-R00 or later. It is recommended to fully charge the battery before first use. The PowerCap is fully charged when shipped. The scanner must be inserted into the charge cradle to enable the PowerCap the first time it is used. NOTE The battery and PowerCap are interchangeable and can be switched at any time. The DS8178 includes two interchangeable power options: a PowerPrecision+ battery or a PowerCap capacitor. The PowerPrecision+ battery and PowerCap capacitor both report their model and serial numbers, which allows the user to always know which power source is in each scanner. The PowerPrecision+ battery is ideal for scanning whether the scanner is near the cradle or away for extended periods. On a single charge, the PowerPrecision+ battery provides over three around-the-clock days of continuous scanning, plus metrics for better battery management. The PowerCap capacitor is ideal when the scanner can always be inserted into a charging cradle when not in use. The PowerCap capacitor provides 2,000 scans on a full charge and 100 scans after 35 seconds in the cradle. Charging the DS8178 Battery/PowerCap When using a new PowerPrecision+ battery in the DS8178, charging is required to enable the battery. The PowerCap is fully charged when shipped. When using a new PowerCap in the DS8178, docking into the cradle is required before it is recognized by the device. Insert the battery/PowerCap (see DS8178 Battery/PowerCap on page 1-7) in the DS8178 and place the DS8178 in the CR8178-SC or CR8178-PC cradle (see Inserting the Scanner in the Cradles on page 1-14). The battery/PowerCap begins pre-charging when the cradle LED lights amber. The scanner boots and the cradle LED begins flashing amber to indicate the start of normal charging. See Beeper and LED Indications on page 2-1 for detailed LED indicator information. NOTES 1. If the battery/PowerCap is significantly discharged it may take several minutes for the scanner to boot. During this time the cradle LED remains solid amber, and the scanner may not show activity. This is normal recovery behavior. (See Recovering a Discharged Battery/PowerCap below.) Once the scanner is active, charge time depends on the host type and power source. See Table 3-2 on page 3-9 for typical charge times. 2. The advanced charging system in the CR8178-XX cradles operate the scanner and charge the battery/PowerCap with as much power as allowed by the host or power supply. Charge times lengthen as scanning activity increases when a DS8178 operates in presentation mode on a CR8178-PC cradle. To optimize charge performance, ensure the scanner is oriented to minimize accidental scan activation. 3. PowerCap requires firmware version CAACXS00-004-R00 or later. The PowerCap is fully charged when shipped. The scanner must be inserted into the charge cradle to enable the PowerCap the first time it is used. 1 - 8 DS8178 Digital Scanner Product Reference Guide IMPORTANT While attached to very power limited hosts, such as a standard USB port, the scanner may slowly discharge the battery/PowerCap during active scanning. In most cases, this is not a problem since the battery/PowerCap charges during breaks in activity. If activation time cannot be reduced, and discharging becomes a problem, it is recommended to attach to a BC1.2 compliant USB port if available, or use a Zebra USB cable that supports an external power supply. CAUTION The battery/PowerCap does not charge when the temperature is above 40°C (104°F). When scanning in presentation mode at temperatures above 40°C (104°F), the battery/PowerCap drains until the temperature drops. When the battery/PowerCap charge is consumed the scanner stops scanning until the temperature drops and the battery/PowerCap has sufficient time to charge. To avoid temperature related faults, charge the battery/PowerCap and operate the DS8178 in presentation mode on a CR8178-PC only within the recommended 0°C to 40°C (32°F to 104°F) range, and ideally within 5°C to 35°C (41°F to 95°F). Recovering a Discharged Battery/PowerCap When a DS8178 battery/PowerCap becomes discharged to less than 3%, scanning and beeping functions are deactivated. Battery/PowerCap status and communication to the cradle is maintained until the battery/PowerCap reaches 0%, at which point the device shuts down. If left for long periods at 0% the battery/PowerCap can become deeply discharged to a point where the device does not function immediately when placed in a cradle to charge. If this happens, it is normal for the scanner to appear off for up to several minutes while the battery/PowerCap is gently recovered. Once enough charge is replenished, the scanner lights the battery/PowerCap status LED (solid red for a healthy battery/PowerCap) while the battery/PowerCap continues to charge. At this point the scanner is available to remote management tools, however scanning and beeps are disabled. Depending on the power source available to the cradle, it may take up to 20 minutes for the battery/PowerCap to reach 3% at which point full functionality resumes. Shutting Off the Digital Scanner Battery or Capacitor Scan the Battery Off bar code below to shut off the battery for long term storage or shipping. Pull the scanner trigger to turn on the battery. Battery Off NOTE Always scan the Battery Off bar code in hand-held mode. DS8178 Battery Statistics Capabilities The DS8178 cordless scanner is equipped with PowerPrecision+ batteries.

The digital scanner naturally rotates forward to engage the digital scanner contacts with the cradle contacts Figure 1-13 Inserting the Scanner in the CR8178-PC Cradle Getting Started 1 - 15 Sending Data to the Host Computer The cradle receives data from the digital scanner via a wireless radio connection and transmits it to the host computer via the host cable. The digital scanner and cradle must be paired for successful wireless communication. Pairing Pairing registers a scanner to the cradle such that the scanner and cradle can exchange information. The CR8178-SC and CR8178-PC operate in two modes: Point-to-Point and Multipoint-to-Point. In Point-to-Point mode, pair the digital scanner to the cradle either by inserting it in the cradle (if pair on contacts is enabled), or by scanning the pairing bar code. In Multipoint-to-Point mode, you can pair up to seven scanners to one cradle. To use this feature, scan the multipoint bar code in Multipoint-to-Point Communication on page 4-28 when the digital scanner is connected to the cradle. To pair the digital scanner with the cradle, insert the scanner in the cradle or scan the pairing bar code. (Pairing on insertion into the cradle is enabled by default. See Pairing Methods on page 4-31.) NOTE The pairing bar code that connects the digital scanner to a cradle is unique to each cradle. Do not scan data or parameters until pairing completes. Lost Connection to Host If scanned data does not transmit to the cradle's host, ensure that all cables are firmly inserted and the power supply is connected to an appropriate AC outlet, if applicable. If scanned data still does not transmit to the host, reestablish a connection with the host: 1. Disconnect the power supply from the cradle. 2. Disconnect the host interface cable from the cradle. 3. Wait three seconds. 4. Reconnect the host interface cable to the cradle. 5. Reconnect the power supply to the cradle, if the host requires. 6. Reestablish pairing with the cradle by inserting the scanner in the cradle or scan the pairing bar code. (Pairing on insertion into the cradle is enabled by default. See Pairing Methods on page 4-31.) Configuring the Scanner Use the bar codes in this manual or the 123Scan configuration program to configure the digital scanner. See Chapter 5, User Preferences and each host chapter for information about programming the digital scanner using bar code menus.

The Healthcare configuration emits a white illumination with a green aim dot. Hand-Held Scanning 1. Aim the digital scanner at a bar code and pull the trigger to decode. 2. Press the trigger until the digital scanner beeps, indicating the bar code is successfully decoded. For more information on beeper and LED definitions, see Beeper and LED Indications on page 2-1. Figure 2-1 Scanning in Hand-Held Mode Hands-Free Scanning The scanner is in hands-free (presentation) mode when it sits in the CR8178-PC cradle. During idle conditions the scanner operates in object detection mode, where it automatically wakes up to decode a bar code presented in the field of view. In object detection mode it is normal for the illumination LEDs to be dimly lit. To scan: 1. Ensure all connections are secure (see appropriate host chapter). 2. Present the bar code in the scanner field of view. Data Capture 2 - 7 3. Upon successful decode, the scanner beeps and the LED flashes green. (For more information about beeper and LED definitions, Beeper and LED Indications on page 2-1). Figure 2-2 Scanning in Hands-Free Mode Aiming with Digital Scanner When scanning, the digital scanner projects a red LED dot which allows positioning the bar code within its field of view. See Decode Ranges on page 2-9 for the proper distance to achieve between the digital scanner and a bar code. Figure 2-3 Aiming Dot If necessary, the digital scanner turns on its red illumination LEDs to illuminate the target bar code. To scan a bar code, center the symbol. 1D bar code 2D bar code Figure 2-4 Scanning Orientation with Aiming Dot 2 - 8 DS8178 Digital Scanner Product Reference Guide The digital scanner can also read a bar code presented within the aiming dot not centered. The top examples in Figure 2-5 show acceptable aiming options, while the bottom examples can not be decoded.

3 - 16 DS8178 Digital Scanner Product Reference Guide CHAPTER 4 RADIO COMMUNICATIONS Introduction This chapter provides information about the modes of operation and features available for wireless communication between the DS8178 cordless digital scanners, cradles and hosts. The chapter also includes the parameters necessary to configure the digital scanner. The digital scanner ships with the settings shown in the Radio Communication Default Table on page 4-2 (also see Appendix A, Standard Parameter Defaults for all defaults). If the default values suit requirements, programming is not necessary. Setting Parameters To set feature values, scan a single bar code or a short bar code sequence. The settings are stored in non-volatile memory and are preserved even when the scanner powers down. NOTE Most computer monitors allow scanning bar codes directly on the screen. When scanning from the screen, be sure to set the document magnification to a level where you can see the bar code clearly, and bars and/or spaces do not merge. If not using the default host, select the host type (see each host chapter for specific host information) after the power-up beeps sound. This is only necessary upon the first power-up when connected to a new host. To programming return all features bar code to menus, default values, asterisks scan (*) a indicate bar code default in Default values. Parameters on page 5-5. Throughout the * Indicates default *Enable Parameter (1) Feature/option Option value 4 - 2 DS8178 Digital Scanner Product Reference Guide Scanning Sequence Examples In most cases, scanning one bar code sets the parameter value. For example, to enable Wi-Fi Friendly Mode, scan the Enable Wi-Fi Friendly Mode bar code listed under Wi-Fi Friendly Mode on page 4-11. The scanner issues a fast warble beep and the LED turns green, signifying a successful parameter entry. Other parameters, such as Bluetooth Friendly Name, require scanning several bar codes. See the parameter descriptions for this procedure. Errors While Scanning Unless otherwise specified, to correct an error during a scanning sequence, just re-scan the correct parameter. Radio Communications Parameter Defaults Table 4-1 lists the defaults for radio communication parameters. Change these values in one of two ways: • Scan the appropriate bar codes in this chapter.

When the digital scanner scans the pairing bar code it issues various beep sequences indicating successful or unsuccessful operations. See Beeper and LED Indications on page 2-1 for all beep sequences and LED displays including those which occur during pairing operations. Radio Communication Host Types To set up the digital scanner for communication with a cradle, or to use standard Bluetooth profiles, scan the appropriate host type bar code below. Bluetooth Classic vs. Low Energy Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) Bluetooth has a smaller RF footprint which significantly improves Wi-Fi co-existence. However, LE Bluetooth is up to 7 times slower than Classic Bluetooth (0.27 Mbps versus 0.7-2.1 Mbps), so data intensive activities such as firmware update can take significantly longer. Cradle Select this host type when connecting a scanner to a communication cradle (DS8178-SC or DS8178-PC). NOTE The scanner automatically tries to reconnect to a remote device when a disconnection occurs that is due to the radio losing communication. See Auto-Reconnect Feature on page 4-21 for more information. To establish a connection (for initial setup only): 1. Scan the Cradle-Bluetooth Classic or Cradle-Low Energy bar code. 2. Scan the pairing bar code on the cradle or place the scanner in the cradle.

From the host, discover Bluetooth devices and select your scanner from the discovered device list. Bluetooth Technology Profile Support With Bluetooth Technology Profile Support, the cradle is not required for wireless communication. The digital scanner communicates directly to the host using Bluetooth technology. The digital scanner supports the standard Bluetooth Serial Port Profile (SPP) and HID Profiles which enable the digital scanner to communicate with other Bluetooth devices that support these profiles. • SPP - the digital scanner connects to the PC/host via Bluetooth and performs like there is a serial connection. • HID - the digital scanner connects to the PC/host via Bluetooth and performs like a keyboard. Master/Slave Set Up The digital scanner can be set up as a Master or Slave. When the digital scanner is set up as a Slave, it is discoverable and connectible to other devices. When the digital scanner is set up as a Master, the Bluetooth address of the remote device to which a connection is requested is required. A pairing bar code with the remote device address must be created and scanned to attempt a connection to the remote device. See the Pairing Bar Code Format Using the Scan-To-Connect (STC) Utility on page 4-32 for information about creating a pairing bar code.SPP BT Classic (Non-Discoverable) SPP BT Classic (Discoverable)
