of attempts to connect is limited by this setting. After the maximum number
of attempts is reached, the scanner will not attempt to reconnect to a base
or an Access Point. Pressing the trigger, scanning an Access Point linking
bar code, or placing the scanner in the cradle resets the attempt count and
the scanner will again try to link.
Scan the Maximum Link Attempts bar code, then scan the number of
attempts for the setting (from 0-100) from the inside back cover. Scan Save
to save the setting. Default = 0.
Note: When Auto Reconnect Mode is On, setting Maximum Link Attempts
to zero will cause the scanner to try to link until the Power Time-Out
Timer setting (see
is Off, setting Maximum Link Attempts to zero will cause the scanner
to only attempt linking one time after a trigger pull.
Relink Time-Out controls the idle time between relink attempts. An attempt
to link a scanner to a base or an Access Point typically lasts up to 5 sec-
onds. This is the time when the scanner 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.
Note: The length of time for an attempt depends on the number of scanners
connected to a base unit or Access Point. An extra 7 seconds may
be required when a connection is successful.
Scan the Relink Time-Out bar code, then scan the number of seconds for
the setting (from 1-100) from the inside back cover. Scan Save to save the
setting. Default = 3 seconds.
Bluetooth/ISM Network Activity Examples
When the scanner goes out of range, the scanner repeatedly attempts to
connect to the base unit or Access Point. Each attempt consists of approx-
imately 5 seconds of active time followed by 3 seconds of idle time. After
one hour, the scanner powers off and batch mode data is lost.
