  • Page 9: Chapter 1 - Imaging Commands

    Imaging Commands The document reader is like a digital camera in the way it captures, manipulates, and transfers images. The following com- mands allow you to alter the way the document reader performs these functions. Single-Use Basis Imaging Commands with their modifiers send instructions to the document reader on a single-use basis, and take effect for a single image capture.
  • Page 10 T - Wait for Trigger Waits for a hardware button push before taking the image. This is only available when using Photo Style (1P). 0T Takes image immediately (default) 1T Waits for a button push, then takes the image L - LED State Determines if the LEDs should be on or off, and when.
  • Page 11 nE Range: 1 - 7874 Example of Exposure at 7874E with Example of Exposure at 100E with fluorescent lighting: fluorescent lighting: G - Gain Gain is used in Manual Style only (2P). Like a volume control, the gain modifier boosts the signal and multiplies the pixel value.
  • Page 12: Step 2 - Ship A Picture Using Imgshp Or Imgacp

    % - Target Set Point Percentage Sets the target point for the light and dark values in the captured image. A setting of 75% means 75% of the pixels are at or below the target white value, and 25% of the pixels are above the target white value. Altering this setting from the default is not recommended under normal circumstances.
  • Page 13: Imgshp/Imgacp Modifiers

    Image taken without Autocrop: Image taken with Autocrop: IMGSHP/IMGACP Modifiers A - Infinity Filter Enhances pictures taken from very long distances (greater than 10 feet or 3m). The Infinity Filter should not be used with Image Auto Crop - IMGACP (page 1-4).
  • Page 14 C - Compensation Flattens the image to account for variations in illumination across the image. 0C Compensation disabled (default) 1C Compensation enabled Example of Compensation at 0C: Example of Compensation at 1C: D - Pixel Depth Indicates the number of bits per pixel in the transmitted image (KIM or BMP format only). 8D 8 bits per pixel, grayscale image (default) 1D 1 bit per pixel, black and white image E - Edge Sharpen...
  • Page 15 H - Histogram Stretch Increases the contrast of the transmitted image. Not available with some image formats. 0H No stretch (default) 1H Histogram stretch Example of Histogram Stretch at 0H: Example of Histogram Stretch at 1H: I - Invert Image Invert image is used to rotate the image around the X or Y axis.
  • Page 16 1if Salt and pepper noise reduction Example of Noise Reduction Off (0if): Example of Noise Reduction On (1if): IR - Image Rotate Note: This feature should only be used with Image Ship - IMGSHP (page 1-4). Using this feature with Image Auto Crop - IMGACP (page 1-4) may produce undesired results since Image Auto Crop attempts to rotate an image to a...
  • Page 17 1iu Adaptive Text Filter on Example of Adaptive Text Filter Off (0iu): Example of Adaptive Text Filter On (1iu): IS - Unsharp/Brighten Filter The Unsharp/Brighten Filter automatically sharpens the text and brightens the contrast of the image, making text more readable.
  • Page 18 L, R, T, B, M - Image Cropping Note: Image Cropping should not be used with Image Auto Crop - IMGACP (see page 1-4). Ships a window of the image by specifying the left, right, top, and bottom pixel coordinates. Device columns are numbered 0 through 1279, and device rows are numbered 0 through 959.
  • Page 19 3S ship every 3rd pixel, both horizontally and vertically Example of Pixel Example of Pixel Example of Pixel Ship set to 1S: Ship set to 2S: Ship set to 3S: U - Document Image Filter Allows you to input parameters to sharpen the edges and smooth the area between the edges of text in an image. This fil- ter should be used with gamma correction (see page 1-9), with the scanner in a stand, and the image captured using the...
  • Page 20: Intelligent Signature Capture - Imgbox

    0W Don’t ship histogram (default) 1W Ship histogram Image used for histogram: Histogram of image at left: Intelligent Signature Capture - IMGBOX IMGBOX allows you to configure the size and location of a signature capture area relative to its proximity to a bar code. This allows you to tailor a signature capture area to a specific form.
  • Page 21: Imgbox Modifiers

    To see this example, align the aimer with the signature area (not with the bar code), then press the trigger. Send the following IMGBOX command string after the button push: Example: IMGBOX245w37h55y. Note: Case is not important in the command string. It is used here only for clarity. The following image is captured: The IMGBOX commands have many different modifiers that can be used to change the size and appearance of the signature image output by the scanner.

  • Page 25: Chapter 2 - Serial Default Commands

    Serial Default Commands The following serial default commands are used to program the imaging features for your document reader. For complete descriptions of each command, refer to the corresponding page in this manual. For non-imaging programming commands, refer to the Bar Code Manual. The following commands can be sent via a PC COM port using terminal emulation software.

    Data Field Usage When a query is used in place of the Data field, the query applies only to the specific command identified by the Tag and SubTag fields. Concatenation of Multiple Commands Multiple commands can be issued within one Prefix/Storage sequence. Only the Tag, SubTag, and Data fields must be repeated for each command in the sequence.
