  • Page 31: Connecting Bluetooth Devices

    • The system administrator has also assigned a Computer Friendly Name using LXEZ Pairing Control Panel for the HX3. To connect Bluetooth devices, the HX3 should be as close as possible and in direct line of sight (distances up to 32.8 feet or 10 meters) with the targeted Bluetooth device during the discovery and pairing process.
  • Page 32: Reboot

    New batteries must be fully charged prior to first use. Li-Ion batteries (like all batteries) gradually lose their capacity over time (in a linear fashion) and never just stop working. This is important to remember – the HX3 is always ‘on’ even when in the Suspend state and draws battery power at all times.

    HX3. The main battery is either the 2000 mAh (Standard) or the 4000 mAh (Extended) battery. Only one main battery can be tethered to the HX3 at a time. The batteries can be hot-swapped after the HX3 is placed in Suspend mode.
  • Page 34: Bluetooth

    Docked HX3 -- An uninterrupted external power source (wall AC/DC adapter connected to the HX2 cradle) transfers signals from the USB ports in the front of the cradle and the serial port on the back of the cradle, to the HX3. HX3 frequent connection to a fully charged tethered battery, is recommended to maintain backup battery charge status, as the backup battery cannot be recharged by a dead or missing tethered battery.
  • Page 35: Audio Support

    The internal speaker supplies audible verification signals normally used by the Windows CE operating system. The speaker is located on the front of the HX3, above the [ 2 ] key.
