Menu Bar Code Security Settings Honeywell scanners are programmed by scanning menu bar codes or by sending serial commands to the 8680i.
  • Page 36: Reset Custom Defaults

    Custom Defaults bar code below. This is the recommended default bar code for most users. It resets the 8680i to the custom default settings. If there are no cus- tom defaults, it resets the 8680i to the factory default settings. Any settings that have not been specified through the custom defaults are defaulted to the factory default settings.
  • Page 37: Chapter 2 - Wireless System Operation

    When using multiple 8680is, you may want to change the PIN so each 8680i is uniquely identified. The PIN code must be between 1 and 16 characters. To change the PIN for the 8680i, scan the bar code below and then scan the appro- priate numeric bar codes from the Programming Chart, beginning on page 235.
  • Page 38: Auto Reconnect Mode

    8680i does not attempt to reconnect to a host. Pressing the trigger, scanning a host linking bar code, or pairing the 8680i with a host resets the attempt count and the 8680i tries to link again.
  • Page 39: Relink Time-Out

    Relink Time-Out controls the idle time between relink attempts. An attempt to link the 8680i to a host typically lasts up to 5 seconds. This is the time when the 8680i is actually attempting a contact. Relink Time-Out controls the amount of time, in seconds, that elapses between the end of one connection attempt and the start of the next.
  • Page 40: Communication Between The 8680I And The Host

    Maximum Link Attempts set to 15 Other values at default setting When the 8680i goes out of range, no action is taken to relink. When the trigger is pressed, 15 attempts are made to link to the host. Each attempt consists of approx- imately 5 seconds of active time followed by 3 seconds of idle time.
  • Page 41: 8680I Is Out Of Range

    Whenever the 8680i can’t communicate with the host for a few seconds, it is out of range. If the 8680i is out of range and you scan a bar code, the 8680i issues an error tone indicating that there was no communication with the host.
  • Page 42: Unlink A Scanner

    Unlink Scanner Override Locked Scanner If you need to replace a broken or lost 8680i that is linked to a host, scan the Over- ride Locked Scanner bar code below with a new 8680i and pair that 8680i with the host.

    The default name is in the format “Honeywell-8680i-SN-############ (12 digit serial number)”. If you have more than one 8680i linked to a host and they all have the same name, the first 8680i linked to the host receives commands. When renaming a series of 8680is with identical names, unlink all except one of the 8680is from the host.
  • Page 52: Host Acknowledgment

    You may also scan the Scanner Name bar code below and scan a number for the 8680i name. For example, if you wanted to name the linked 8680i “312,” you would scan the bar code below, scan the 3, 1, and 2 bar codes on the Programming Chart, beginning on page 235, then scan Save.

  • Page 59: Led - Good Read

    Number of Good Read Beeps/LED Flashes Number of Beeps – Error The number of beeps and LED flashes emitted by the 8680i for a bad read or error can be programmed from 1 - 9. For example, if you program this option to have five error beeps, there will be five error beeps and five LED flashes in response to an error.
  • Page 60: Good Read Delay

    User-Specified Good Read Delay Manual Trigger Modes When in manual trigger mode, the 8680i scans until a bar code is read, or until the trigger is released. Two modes are available, Normal and Enhanced. Normal mode offers good scan speed and the longest working ranges (depth of field). Enhanced mode gives you the highest possible scan speed but slightly less range than Nor- mal mode.
  • Page 61: Serial Trigger Mode

    (page 3-41) for further information. When in serial mode, the 8680i scans until a bar code has been read or until the deactivate command is sent. The 8680i can also be set to turn itself off after a specified time has elapsed (see Read Time-Out, which follows).
  • Page 62: Object Detection Trigger

    This setting improves the 8680i’s ability to read damaged or badly printed PDF codes by combining information from multiple images. When Poor Quality PDF On is scanned, poor quality PDF code reading is improved, but the 8680i’s snappi- 8680i User Guide...
  • Page 63: Illumination Lights

    Lights Off Aimer Delay The aimer delay allows a delay time for the operator to aim the 8680i before the image is taken. Use these codes to set the time between when the trigger is pressed and when the image is taken. During the delay time, the aiming light appears, but the LEDs won’t turn on until the delay time is over.

    * Interlaced Centering Use Centering to narrow the 8680i’s field of view to make sure that it reads only those bar codes you intend to read. For instance, if multiple codes are placed closely together, centering insures that only the desired codes are read. (Centering...

    Note: Scan the ALT mode bar code after scanning the appropriate Keyboard Country code. If your keystrokes require the ALT key and 4 characters, scan the 4 Characters bar code. The data is then output with the special character(s). Default = Off. * Off 8680i User Guide...
  • Page 67: Keyboard Modifiers

    Windows Mode Prefix/Suffix Preferred Symbology The 8680i can be programmed to specify one symbology as a higher priority over other symbologies in situations where both bar code symbologies appear on the same label, but the lower priority symbology cannot be disabled.
  • Page 68: High Priority Symbology

    For example, you may be using the 8680i in a retail setting to read U.P.C. symbols, but have occasional need to read a code on a drivers license. Since some licenses have a Code 39 symbol as well as the PDF417 symbol, you can use Preferred Sym- bology to specify that the PDF417 symbol be read instead of the Code 39.
  • Page 69: Preferred Symbology Time-Out

    Once you have enabled Preferred Symbology and entered the high and low priority symbologies, you must set the time-out period. This is the period of time the 8680i searches for a high priority bar code after a low priority bar code has been encoun- tered.
  • Page 70: To Add An Output Sequence

    To Add an Output Sequence An output sequence is created using a string of serial commands that is sent to the 8680i. This string is most easily sent to the 8680i using the EZConfig software tool (see EZConfig-Scanning Introduction on page 177). You can also accomplish this...
  • Page 71 In this example, you are scanning PDF417, Code 128, and Code 39 bar codes, but you want the 8680i to output Code 39 first, Code 128 second, and PDF417 third. Set up the sequence editor with the following command line:...
  • Page 72 Code 128, 54h = “T” termination string for first code code identifier for PDF417 9999 code length that must match for PDF417, 9999 = all lengths start character match for PDF417, 4Dh = “M” termination string for third code 8680i User Guide...
  • Page 73: Enter Output Sequence

    In this example, you are scanning PDF417, Code 128, and Code 39 bar codes, and you want the 8680i to output Code 39 first, Code 128 second, and PDF417 third, in brackets, as shown below, but the Code 39 bar code has been damaged and cannot be output.

  • Page 76: Good Read Tone - Output Sequences

    Good Read Tone - Output Sequences The 8680i may be programmed to either beep or click in response to a good read of each bar code in an output sequence, or to emit a beep or error tone for a partial sequence.
  • Page 77: Multiple Symbols

    When this programming selection is turned On, it allows you to read multiple sym- bols with a single press of the 8680i’s trigger. If you press and hold the trigger, aim- ing the 8680i at a series of symbols, it reads unique symbols once, beeping and vibrating for each read.
  • Page 78: Video Reverse

    Video Reverse Video Reverse is used to allow the 8680i to read bar codes that are inverted. The Video Reverse Off bar code below is an example of this type of bar code. Scan Video Reverse Only to read only inverted bar codes. Scan Video Reverse and Standard Bar Codes to read both types of codes.
  • Page 79: Working Orientation

    Some bar codes are direction-sensitive. For example, KIX codes and OCR can mis- read when scanned sideways or upside down. Use the working orientation settings if your direction-sensitive codes are not usually presented upright to the 8680i. Default = Upright.
