The scanner is like a digital camera in the way it captures, manipulates, and
transfers images. The following commands allow you to alter the way the scan-
ner performs these functions.
Note: If you are using the scanner in a stand, you must set the In-Stand Sensor
Mode to Off in order to take images (see
Imaging Commands with their modifiers send instructions to the scanner on a
single-use basis, and take effect for a single image capture. Once that capture
is complete, the scanner reverts to its imaging default settings. If you want to
permanently change a setting, you must use the serial default commands (see
11). When the serial default command is used, that selection becomes
the new, permanent setting for the scanner.
Multiple modifiers and commands can be issued within one sequence. If addi-
tional modifiers are to be applied to the same command, just add the modifiers
to that command. For example, to add 2 modifiers to the Image Snap com-
mand, such as setting the Imaging Style to 1P and the Wait for Trigger to 1T,
you would enter IMGSNP1P1T.
Note: After processing an image capture command (IMGSNP or IMGBOX), you
must follow it with an IMGSHP command if you want to see it on your
To add a command to a sequence, each new command is separated with a
semicolon. For example, to add the Image Ship command to the above
sequence, you would enter IMGSNP1P1T;IMGSHP.
The imaging commands are:
Image Snap - IMGSNP
Image Ship - IMGSHP
Intelligent Signature Capture - IMGBOX
The modifiers for each of these commands follow the command description.
Note: The images included with each command description are examples only.
The results you achieve may be different from those included in this
manual. The quality of the output you receive will vary depending on
lighting, quality of the initial image/object being captured, and distance of
the scanner from the image/object. To achieve a high quality image, it is
recommended that you position your scanner 4-6" (10.2-15.2 cm) away
from the image/object you are capturing.
