    Chapter 11 Scanner Emulation Interface Introduction This chapter describes how to set up the digital scanner with a Scanner Emulation host. In this mode, the digital scanner connects to an external decoder or to a decoder integrated in a mobile computer or Point-of-Sale (POS) terminal.

  • Page 164: Connecting Using Scanner Emulation

    Attach the modular connector of the Scanner Emulation interface cable to the cable interface port on the digital scanner.

    Emulation host interface. To modify any other parameter options, scan the appropriate bar codes in this chapter. ! Connect the digital scanner to 5 volt decoders only. Connecting the digital scanner to a 12 WARNING volt decoder can damage the digital scanner and invalidate the warranty.

  • Page 166: Scanner Emulation Parameter Defaults

    11 - 4 Symbol DS6708 Digital Scanner Product Reference Guide Scanner Emulation Parameter Defaults Table 11-1 lists the defaults for the Scanner Emulation host. To change any option, scan the appropriate bar code(s) provided in the Scanner Emulation Host Parameters section beginning on page 11-5. NOTE See Appendix A, Standard Default Parameters miscellaneous default parameters.

  • Page 167: Scanner Emulation Host, Scanner Emulation Host Parameters

    • Beep On Successful Transmit: The digital scanner beeps when the attached decoder issues the decode signal to the digital scanner, so the digital scanner and the attached decoder beep at the same time. • Beep At Decode Time: The digital scanner beeps upon decode. This results in a double beep sequence from most decoders, since the digital scanner beeps, and the decoder beeps (at a different frequency) when it successfully decodes the output.

  • Page 168: Parameter Pass-through

    In this way, customers using Symbol compliant decoders can control the behavior of the entire system by scanning the necessary parameters only once. For example, to enable D 2 of 5, scan the D 2 of 5 Enable parameter bar code. The digital scanner and the attached decoder both process the parameter.

  • Page 169: Convert Newer Code Types, Module Width

    Convert Newer Code Types The digital scanner supports a variety of code types that are not decodable by attached decoder systems. To allow compatibility in these environments, the digital scanner converts these code types to more commonly decodable symbologies, as per the following chart. Symbologies not listed on this chart transmit normally.

    By default, a space replaces any characters that do not have a corresponding character in the Code 39 symbology set. Enable this parameter to encode data sent to the Scanner Emulation host in Code 39 Full ASCII. The host must be able to interpret Code 39 Full ASCII data.

  • Page 171: Transmission Timeout

    Scanner Emulation Interface 11 - 9 Transmission Timeout The Scanner Emulation host transmits bar code data to the attached decoder and waits for the decoder to assert the Decode signal, indicating successful transmission. If, after a specified amount of time, the Decode signal is not asserted (indicating that the attached decoder did not successfully receive the bar code data), the digital scanner issues transmit error beeps.

  • Page 172: Leading Margin, Ignore Unknown Characters

    Unknown characters are characters the decoder does not recognize. Select Ignore Unknown Characters to send all bar code data except for unknown characters. The digital scanner issues no error beeps. Select Convert Error on Unknown Characters to prevent sending bar codes containing at least one unknown character to the decoder.

  • Page 173: Check For Decode Led

    Check For Decode LED The attached decoder normally asserts the Decode line to signal to the Scanner Emulation host to indicate that it successfully decoded the transmitted bar code. Some decoders, however, do not assert the Decode signal. In this case, the digital scanner emits transmit error beeps to indicate that the bar code did not successfully transmit.
