  • Page 26: Reading Timeout Mode

    Reading Timeout Mode Code Reader reads the symbol repeatedly during the duration time, set by “TOTALLIM” after the SYNC input, or continues reading until the decoding is successful. If the reader cannot decode successfully in the duration time, it stops reading and sends an error code to the host. Typically MAXIMG is set to a number greater than one.

  • Page 33: Cycle Buffer Function

    Cycle Buffer Function With cycle buffer function, the reader images the target serially when the positions of moving targets are scattered against the SYNC. In SYNCMODE=1 (Reading Timeout Mode) or SYNCMODE=2 (External Trigger Mode), the Cycle Buffer Function is enabled when the MAXIMG number is greater than 1one (default is four 4).
  • Page 34 [Concept of using Cycle Buffer] The greatest feature of this function is the imaging of the predetermined number at a constant time interval unrelated to reading processing time. Set the number of imaging within the MAXIMG setting (16 sheets maximum) for the imaging at regular intervals. Otherwise the imaging interval will vary depending on the reading processing time after the number of imaging.
  • Page 35: Configuration For Symbol Reading

     Is the host port settings the same as the reader port settings? Make sure the connection and the communication settings (e.g. Baud rate, Character format, COM port number for RS232C settings). The reader port is set by the serial command “COMFROM”. If the port is set to RS232C (COMFROM=0), both way LAN data communication between the reader and the host would not work.
