    The P470/P370 RF Scanner Introduction The P470/P370 cordless RF scanners bring new flexibility and economy to data capture and data management in both industrial and retail operations. The scanner communicates with your host computer through radio transmission instead of through a cable. With the RF scanner, you are free to scan and transmit without a physical cable, from as far away as 100 feet (30.5 meters) even without a direct line of sight.

  • Page 18: Rechargeable Battery, The Cradle

    P470/370 RF Scanner Product Reference Guide Rechargeable Battery In the handle of the scanner, there is a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. This provides all power to the scanner during cordless operation. It provides 10 hours of use in a typical application. When fully depleted, the battery can be recharged to full charge in about 3-1/2 hours.

  • Page 21: Unpacking, Introduction, Setting Up The Cradle, Connecting To A Host

    Introduction This chapter covers the procedures for setting up the RF scanner and its accessories. Unpacking Remove the scanner from its packing and inspect it for damage. If the scanner was damaged in transit, call one of the telephone numbers listed in the section Center on page xi.

  • Page 22

    P470/370 RF Scanner Product Reference Guide There are two basic host communications options available: • using an RS-232 cable • using a Synapse cable. RS-232 Connection 1. Make sure all host devices are powered down. 2. Plug the connector at the end of the cradle’s cable into the appropriate RS-232 receiving port on the host device.

  • Page 23

    7. Rotate the antenna to the vertical position. Using A Synapse Cable 1. Make sure all host devices are powered down. Before power is provided to the cradle (step 6), the following steps must be completed. The Synapse cable must be connected to the cradle (step 2) AND the flying power lead plugged in (step 4).

    P470/370 RF Scanner Product Reference Guide 7. Connect the appropriate line cord to the power supply and into an AC receptacle. 8. The indicator light on the cradle blinks, signifying successful power-up. 9. Scan the appropriate Synapse bar codes to set up the Synapse cable for your specifications.

    3. Fasten the two screws provided into the wall where the cradle will hang, leaving about 1/8” (0.3 cm) of the screw outside the wall for the cradle’s wall mounting sockets (A template is provided for you in the PL 370/470 Quick Reference Guide p/n 72-38494-xx).

  • Page 26: Pairing The Scanner With The Cradle

    1. Scan the pairing bar code on the top of the cradle. To pair a long range scanner (P370 ALR) to a regular P370 cradle, attach the “spare pairing bar code” label to the cradle. This 15 mil bar code, packaged with the cradle, can be scanned by the P370 ALR at a distance of approximately two feet from the cradle.

  • Page 27: Optimizing Rf Performance, Mounting, Coexistence In Spectrum24 Environments

    Set Up Optimizing RF Performance Mounting The RF scanner and cradle are equipped with a 2.4 GHz point-to-point radio that has an RF transmission range of 100 feet (30.5 meters) even without a direct line of sight. In addition to being a 2-way RF transmitter, the cradle is a battery charger and should be mounted in an accessible location like on a table or desktop.

    P470/370 RF Scanner Product Reference Guide Phaser-to-Phaser Co-Existence Up to three P470/370 scanners within listening range (100 feet) of each other can be operated on the same channel with little or no interference, assuming average scanning rates. For higher than average scanning rates, P470/370 scanners within listening range (100 feet) of each other should be operated on different channels, set apart by at least one channel (for example, 2, 4, 6, etc.).

  • Page 29: Using The Cradle, Using The Ubc 2000, Battery Charge

    Using the UBC 2000 The battery can be charged using the Universal Battery Charger UBC 2000. The UBC adapter for the P470/P370 scanner battery is required. Refer to the UBC 2000 guide for information on recharging the battery using the UBC 2000.
