  • 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 commands 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: Imgsnp Modifiers

    IMGSNP Modifiers P - Imaging Style This sets the Image Snap style. Decoding Style. This processing allows a few frames to be taken until the exposure parameters are met. The last frame is then available for further use. Photo Style (default). This mimics a simple digital camera, and results in a visually optimized image.
  • Page 11: A - Aimer Lines

    A - Aimer Lines Sets whether the aimer lines will be captured with the image or not. In order to capture the aimer lines, the LEDs must also be off. If the LEDs are on, the aimer lines will not be captured. Aimer Lines off (default) Aimer Lines on Example of Aimer Lines Off (0A):...
  • Page 12: G - Gain

    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. As you increase the gain, the noise in an image is also amplified. 1G No gain (default) 2G Medium gain 4G Heavy gain 8G Maximum gain...
  • Page 13: Target Set Point Percentage

    % - 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.

    IMGSNP75W;IMGACP14E 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 1-5).
  • Page 15: C - Compensation

    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...

    F - File Format Indicates the desired format for the image. KIM format TIFF binary TIFF binary group 4, compressed TIFF grayscale Uncompressed binary (upper left to lower right, 1 pixel/bit, 0 padded end of line) Uncompressed grayscale (upper left to lower right, bitmap format) JPEG image (default) BMP format (lower right to upper left, uncompressed) H - Histogram Stretch...
  • Page 17: I - Invert Image

    I - Invert Image Invert image is used to rotate the image around the X or Y axis. Note: This feature should only be used with Image Ship - IMGSHP (page 1-5). Using this feature with Image Auto Crop - IMGACP (page 1-5) may produce undesired results since Image Auto Crop attempts to rotate an image to a horizontal display.
  • Page 18: Iu - Image Adaptive Text Filter

    IR - Image Rotate Note: This feature should only be used with Image Ship - IMGSHP (page 1-5). Using this feature with Image Auto Crop - IMGACP (page 1-5) may produce undesired results since Image Auto Crop attempts to rotate an image to a horizontal display. Image as snapped (rightside up) (default) Rotate image 90 degrees to the right Rotate image 180 degrees (upside down)
  • Page 19: Is - Unsharp/Brighten Filter

    IS - Unsharp/Brighten Filter The Unsharp/Brighten Filter automatically sharpens the text and brightens the contrast of the image, making text more readable. This is similar to the Image Adaptive Text Filter, however it brightens the image as well. You should test both image processing techniques to determine which filter works best for your environment.
  • Page 20: L, R, T, B, M - Image Cropping

    L, R, T, B, M - Image Cropping Note:Image Cropping should not be used with Image Auto Crop - IMGACP (see page 1-5). 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 21: S - Pixel Ship

    S - Pixel Ship Pixel Ship sizes an image in proportion to its original size. It decimates the image by shipping only certain, regularly spaced pixels. For example, 4S would transmit every fourth pixel from every fourth line. The smaller number of pixels shipped, the smaller the image, however, after a certain point the image becomes unusable.
  • Page 22: Blur Image

    V - Blur Image Smooths transitions by averaging the pixels next to the hard edges of defined lines and shaded areas in an image. Don’t blur (default) Blur Example of Blur Image Off (0V): Example of Blur Image On (1V): W - Histogram Ship A histogram gives a quick picture of the tonal range of an image, or key type.
  • Page 23: Intelligent Signature Capture - Imgbox

    Intelligent Signature Capture - IMGBOX IMGBOX allows you to configure the size and location of a signature capture area relative to its proximity to a barcode. This allows you to tailor a signature capture area to a specific form. In order to use IMG- BOX, you need a set form where the signature box location is in a known location relative to a barcode.
  • Page 24: Imgbox Modifiers

    IMGBOX Modifiers A - Output Image Width This option is used to size the image horizontally. If using this option, set the resolution (R) to zero. Example of Image Width set to 200A: Example of Image Width set to 600A: B - Output Image Height This option is used to size the image vertically.
  • Page 25: K - Gamma Correction

    K - Gamma Correction Gamma measures the brightness of midtone values produced by the image. You can brighten or darken an image using gamma correction. A higher gamma correction yields an overall brighter image. The lower the setting, the darker the image. The optimal setting for text images is 50K. Gamma correction off (default) 50K Apply gamma correction for brightening typical document image Apply gamma correction factor n ( n = 1-255)
  • Page 26: Horizontal Barcode Offset

    X - Horizontal Barcode Offset The horizontal barcode offset allows you to offset the horizontal center of the signature capture area. Positive values move the horizontal center to the right and negative values to the left. Measurements are in multiples of the minimum bar width. Example of Horizontal Offset Example of Horizontal Offset set to 75X:...
  • Page 27: 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 Barcode Manual. The following commands can be sent via a PC COM port using terminal emulation software.

    Tag Field Usage When a query is used in place of a Tag field, the query applies to the entire set of commands available for the particular storage table indicated by the Storage field of the command. In this case, the SubTag and Data fields should not be used because they are ignored by the device.
