    If you are using a Microsoft® Windows® PC, you will need to download a driver from the Honey- well website (www.honeywell.com/aidc). The driver will use the next available COM port number. Apple® Macintosh computers recognize the document reader as a USB CDC class device and automat- ically use a class driver.
  • Page 13: Ttl-232 Serial Port Connection

    ACK/NAK Mode * Off TTL-232 Serial Port Connection All communication parameters between the document reader and terminal must match for correct data transfer through the serial port using RS-232 protocol. Scanning the RS-232 interface barcode pro- grams the document reader for an RS-232 interface at 115,200 baud, parity–none, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, and adds a suffix of a CR LF.
  • Page 14: Reading Techniques

    Reading Techniques The document reader has a view finder that projects a bright aimer that corresponds to the document reader’s horizontal field of view. The barcode should be centered under the aiming crosshairs, but can be positioned in any direction for a good read. Linear barcodes: 2D Matrix symbols: The aimer is smaller when the barcode is closer to the document reader and larger when it is farther...

User-Specified Reread Delay LED Power Level This selection allows you to adjust LED and aimer brightness.
  • Page 27: Aimer Delay

    Aimer Delay The aimer delay allows a delay time for the operator to aim the document reader before the picture is taken. Use these codes to set the time between when the trigger is pulled and when the picture is taken. During the delay time, the aiming light will appear, but the LEDs won’t turn on until the delay time is over.
  • Page 28 In the example below, the gray area is the full document reader field of view and the white area is the centering window. Barcode 1 will not be read, while Barcode 2 will be. Barcode 1 Barcode 2 The default centering window is a 128x96 pixel area in the center of the document reader’s field of view. The following diagram illustrates the default top, bottom, left, and right pixel positions, measured from the top and the left side of the document reader’s field of view, which is 640 by 480 pixels.
  • Page 29: Decode Window

    Decode Window This feature defines an area or window within which a barcode must be placed in order to be decoded. Although the aimer brackets are displayed over a wide area, you can define a smaller window for decod- ing barcodes. This will improve decode time. Note that the barcode can only be decoded if it is entirely within the defined window.
  • Page 30: Decode Search Mode

    Decode Search Mode There are three selectable decode (scanning) modes: Full Omnidirectional - Searches for barcode features beginning at the center of an image, and searches to the image’s limits. This mode reads all symbologies (including OCR), in any orientation. The Full Omnidirectional search is very thorough which may slow performance time.

  • Page 37: Chapter 4 - Data Editing

    Data Editing Prefix/Suffix Overview When a barcode is scanned, additional information is sent to the host computer along with the barcode data. This group of barcode data and additional, user-defined data is called a “message string.” The selections in this section are used to build the user-defined data into the message string. Prefix and Suffix characters are data characters that can be sent before and after scanned data.

To enhance security in OCR applications, create an OCR template to match the data, and print an OCR check character.
  • Page 90: U.s. Currency Font

    U.S. Currency Font U.S. Currency On allows you to scan characters in the font used on U.S. currency. The default setting allows you to scan any eight digit combination. If you have created an OCR template, character combi- nations that fit the template can be scanned (see Creating an OCR Template, page 7-3).
  • Page 91: Creating An Ocr Template

    Creating an OCR Template A single template allows you to program the imager to read any combination of characters in the order you specify. Refer to examples that follow the Template Characters table below. Template Characters represents any alphanumeric character (digit or letter) represents that a check character is verified but not transmitted represents any digit represents any available OCR character...
  • Page 92: Stringing Together Multiple Formats (creating "or" Statements)

    Example: You need to read three variable digits, three specific characters (ABC), followed by three variable digits. The template would be: dddABCddd Using Visual Xpress (see page 9-3), you can enter the template as shown above, enclosing the whole string between quotes: “dddABCddd”. You may also create this character match sequence by scanning barcodes.
  • Page 93: Ocr User-defined Variables

    OCR User-Defined Variables You can create up to two of your own user variables for an OCR template. These variables will represent any OCR readable characters. The user-defined variables are stored under the letters “g” and “h.” Cre- ating a user variable follows the same steps as creating a template, but instead of scanning the Enter OCR Template symbol, you scan the Enter User-Defined Variable symbol (page 7-10).
  • Page 94: Ocr Check Character

    To read both lines of OCR at one time, use the variable to indicate the start of a new row. All the other templating variables for the individual rows work the same as previously described. For instance, in the above example, you would use the following template to read both rows: OCRTMP"ddddddddrllllllll".
  • Page 95: Ocr Modulo 36 Check Character

    OCR Modulo 36 Check Character Scan this symbol to program the OCR template for a simple modulo 36 checksum of the digits 0 through 9 and the letters A through Z. OCR Modulo 36 Check Character OCR User-Defined Check Character You can customize the check character calculation to suit your application.
  • Page 96: Weighting Options

    After you enter all the desired hex values, scan the Save barcode on the inside back cover of this manual. Weighting Options By default, the check character computation is unweighted. It is possible to use one of two weighted modulo 10 schemes. Weighting is often used to detect if two neighboring characters are transposed, a common error when an operator keys in data.
  • Page 97: Ocr Isbn Application Example

    Then scan the string below: 0128454 The reader performs the check character computation below: (0 x 1 + 1 x 2 + 2 x 1 + 8 x 2 + 4 x 1 + 5 x 2 + 4 x 1) modulo 10 = (0 + 2 + 2 + (1 + 6) + 4 + (1 + 0) + 4) modulo 10 Since the result is zero, the message is considered to be valid, so the reader outputs the message: 012845...
  • Page 98: Ocr Template Codes

    5. Finally, set up the ISBN check digit, which is a special position-weighted modulo 11 checksum. The imager automatically invokes the ISBN checksum for template rows that are: 1.) at least fourteen characters long, 2.) whose first four characters are the letters “ISBN,” 3.) whose last character is a check character, and 4.) when the modulo 11 check character “0123456789X”...

  • Page 105: Chapter 10 - Serial Programming Commands

    Serial Programming Commands The serial programming commands can be used in place of the programming barcodes. Both the serial commands and the programming barcodes will program your document reader. For complete descrip- tions and examples of each serial programming command, refer to the corresponding programming bar- code in this manual.

In this case, the SubTag and Data fields should not be used because they are ignored by the device.

    When properly seated, the connector is held in the document reader’s imager by a flexible retention tab. The interface cable is designed to be field replaceable. • Order replacement cables from Honeywell or from an authorized distributor. • When ordering a replacement cable, specify the cable part number of the original interface cable.
  • Page 126: Troubleshooting

    To Replace the Interface Cable: 1. Turn the power to the host system OFF. 2. Disconnect the document reader’s cable from the terminal or computer. 3. Locate the small hole on the front of the imager. This is the cable release.

See Chapter 1 Chapter • The document reader may not be programmed to output your barcode data properly. For example, you scan “12345” and the host displays “A12345B.” Reprogram the document reader with the proper symbology selections.
