2.2.6 Expanded Features Scan Width Control If the laser emits on several bar codes located near each other, scanning may fail. By narrowing the laser beam emission width, scanning can be focused onto only one bar code, not onto the other one located near by.
Scan Verification Beam If scanning takes place with the laser beam emitted onto multiple bar codes located near each other, it is difficult to distinguish by the user which bar code was correctly scanned. In such the condition, if a laser beam can be emitted again on to the same bar code verifying the actual scanned bar code the user wishes to scan and a notification about it is issued to the user, the scanning can be succeeded without having any difficulty or confusion.
Noise Filter If the background of a bar code is white color, a noise tends to be generated easily during scanning causing the error rate to increase. To reduce such the noise, the Noise Filter function is available with the terminal. Two methods, software noise filter and ASIC noise filter, are available.
Contrarily to other gain modes, it may cause the response from scanning to be worse. Registry for automatic gain change mode: Location : [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers\CASIO\Laser] Parameter: GainPtn=A (DWORD value) 8 : Gain Mode 3...
Notes: • Setting up the setting gain in Auto mode while the scan width control function is set up may cause a deterioration of scanning bar codes that are printed in a poor quality.

Code39 Code128 With the decoding system used for the previous CASIO handheld terminals, decoding is processed with a mean value of one module adding bar thickness of each black bar and white bar for one character when performing binaryzation or quardruplzation of bar thickness.
Customizing the Decoder According to the scan environment and the bar code printed material’s quality, the decoder can be customized to efficiently improve scanning performance. First, to maintain scanning performance with the normal decoding logic, perform decoding using with the decoder and if it does not succeed the decoding, customize it so that the decoding can be performed for a better scanning performance.
Changing the threshold values for Right and Left margins When a bar code is printed inside of quadrangle, scanning may not be possible because there is not enough left and/or right marginal space. By making change on the right and left marginal threshold values, scanning a bar code becomes possible.
Decoder learning function This function is to automatically change parameters for criteria and threshold level used to judge on decoding bar code data so that scanning a bar code printed in poor quality can be improved. However, after changing the relevant parameters for the Decoder Learning function, the individual scanning characteristics of each terminal may be degraded.
• Supported symbologies Below is a list of the symbologies which can be effectively scanned using the Decoder Learning function. EAN, JAN, UPC-A, UPC-B EAN, JAN, UPC-A, UPC-B Add-ons UPC-E UPC-E Add-on Code39 Interleaved 2of5 Industrial 2of5 Code93 Code128 IATA List of Parameters Subject to Change The parameters subject to change are those which can be altered using the Customize function and those listed below.
Changing Character Spacing Threshold Values The decoder identifies wide character spacing as an anomalous pattern, which may result in the inability to scan. Disabling the character spacing determination function overcomes this problem. Depending on the barcode system, some codes may have character spacing while others may not. This change is effective for those codes which have character spacing.
Changing Thick Bar Determination Criteria Optical and print characteristics may result in discrepancies in the thickness of black and white bars, thereby preventing accurate ratios from being obtained during scanning. By checking the left guard bar and central bar, the black and white bar discrepancies are obtained and incorporated into the thick bar determination.
Changing Character Discrepancy Threshold Values When a comparison of the total value of bars comprising each character is performed during scanning and said value is either too large or too small compared to that of the other characters, it is processed as an anomalous pattern. This may result in the inability to scan due to the ratio of a single character becoming either larger or smaller than the others.
Enabling or Disabling the Decoder Learning function The Decoder Learning function can be switched to either “Enable” or “Disable”. This switch can be made using the functions or settings file provided by the Laser Scanner Library. Note: Enabling the Decoder Learning function improves the scanning performance for poorly printed bar codes.

Combined symbols can only be scanned when the decoding mode is set to “Normal Scan”.
Image Capture Function This function is used to capture image data and save it as a JPEG file. Using the function together with the JPEG Library, the captured image data is output as image data in either 2-gray scale or 256-gray scale.
Signature Index Function This function scans both symbol and signature at one time and outputs the symbol data and indexed signature at the same time. The position and size of a signature can be specified in the user application based on the position of the symbol. The function automatically corrects the up and down positions of the captured symbol in correspondence with the up and down positions of the image data even if it has been captured upside down or diagonally, and then outputs it.
Streaming Display Function This function sequentially displays an image while continuously operating the CMOS Imager. With the image capturing function in “Image Capture Function”, the streaming display function can be used to display image preview.

2.5.7 Process after Communication Interruption With Bluetooth communication, there is a chance that the communication link may be interrupted due to radio wave conditions in air. An error occurred during the communication is detected by carrying out WriteFile API function, ReadFile API function, etc. In case where the communication is interrupted, carry out the normal Bluetooth interruption process using the Bluetooth tool or in application and then retry to establish the same connection for communication.
2.5.10 Simultaneous Use with WLAN Since Bluetooth employs the same frequency range (2.4GHz ISM band), basically Bluetooth cannot be operated concurrently with WLAN. However, it is possible to make mutual interference less by following the instruction without turning off the power of each device. •...

WLAN The IEEE802.11 b/g WLAN is operable on models with integrated WLAN. The IEEE802.11 b/g standard utilizes 2.4 GHz ISM (“Industry Science Medical”) frequency band, which is used for short range wireless communication. Device Name With the terminal, the device name used to capture data about the WLAN driver with DeviceIoControl function is “SDIO86861”.
2.6.2 Expanded Features Power ON/OFF Control The power to the integrated WLAN module can be controlled in application. Turning off the power when the WLAN module is not in use can save power, prevent line congestion and allow the on-board use of the terminal in aircraft.
