USB Client Port This port is used to transmit data and ﬁ les (download, upload) by connecting the cradle to a PC using a USB cable (DT-380USB-A). The dedicated driver must be installed in the PC before connecting the cradle to the PC. USB Host Port This port is used to connect a corresponding USB peripheral device.
Loading and Removing the Batteries Two types of battery are used in the Handheld Terminal. There are the main batteries used to operate the Handheld Terminal, and a backup battery used for memory protection. As the main batteries, use alkaline AA batteries or fully charged rechargeable AA batteries (eneloop).
Loading the Main Batteries 1. Turn the battery cover lock switches to the “FREE” position and remove the battery cover. Locked Locked Free Free 2. Load the batteries, ensuring that the polarity (+ and -) is correct. 3. Re-install the battery cover and return the battery cover lock switches to the “LOCK” position.
Loading the Backup Battery 1. Loosen the 2 screws and remove the battery cover by opening the notch with Screws (2) Screws (2) your ﬁ ngernail. Notch Notch 2. Load the battery from the direction of the arrow, ensuring that the polarity (+ and -) is correct.
Handling microSD Cards The Handheld Terminal supports microSD card. Since the microSD card slot is located inside the battery compartment, ﬁ rst remove the batteries when installing or removing a microSD card. Refer to pages 17 to 18 for information on “Loading and Removing the Main Batteries”. Install (or remove) a microSD card according to the procedure described below.
Removing 1. Make sure that the power on the terminal has been switched off. If the power is still on, press the power key to switch off. 2. Remove the batteries and open the microSD card cover. 3. Catch the projecting lip with your ﬁ ngertip as shown in the illustration and pull the card out.
Performing Communications IR Communication IR communication can be used to transmit data between two Handheld Terminals. When performing IR communication, orient the IR ports of both Handheld Terminals so they are pointing directly at each other. The ports can be in direct contact with each other, or they can be separated by up to ⁄...
® Bluetooth Communication ® Bluetooth interface can also be used to transmit data between two Handheld Terminals. ® With Bluetooth the two Handheld Terminals should be located within about 5 meters from each other, as long as there is nothing blocking the path between them. Important! Observe the following precautions to help ensure that Bluetooth communication is successful.
Resetting the Handheld Terminal Resetting the Handheld Terminal is the same as restarting a PC. Performing a reset causes all unsaved inputs and edits to be lost, but data that is already stored in the memory as well as all settings should be unaffected. Use reset to restore normal operation whenever the Handheld Terminal operates abnormally due to misoperation or some other reason.
Warning Label The illustration shows the DT-970M51E. The label location differs depending on the model. • This label is a warning and caution label for Class 2 laser products that comply with IEC60825-1:2007. • Although Class 2 laser light is only emitted momentarily, never look directly into the beam light.

Connecting the USB Cradle (HA-N60IO) Power Supply You can use the optional USB cable (DT-380USB-A) to connect the USB Cradle to a computer and use the computer as a power source. Before attempting data communication with the DT-970, connect the USB Cradle and the USB cable.
Important! • Water or other liquids on the data communication or power supply terminals can lead to an electric shock or ﬁ re. Note also that soiling on the terminals will impair the connection, leading to reduced power supply and communication functionality.
Speciﬁ cations 1. USB Protocol: USB Ver2.0 Full speed Transfer Rate: 12Mbps (max.) 2. Power Supply Output to Handheld Terminal: 5V DC 0.5A (max.) 3. Dimensions and Weight Approximately 94(W) × 84(D) × 107(H) mm Dimensions: Weight: Approximately 250g 4. Operating Environment Temperature: 0°C to 40°C (32°F to 104°F) Humidity:...
Connecting the USB Cradle (HA-E60IO) Power Supply Before using the cradle, ﬁ t the optional attachment kit (HA-N64AT). 1. Make sure that the USB Cradle’s power switch is turned off and then plug the optional AC adaptor (AD-S15050B-N5) into the AC adaptor jack on the back of the USB Cradle.
3. Connect the USB cable (DT-380USB-A) to the USB port on the back of the USB Cradle and then connect it to the personal computer. 4. Line up the infrared interface on the bottom of the DT-970 and the infrared interface on the USB Cradle to mount the DT-970.
Connecting the Ethernet Cradle (HA-N62IO) Power Supply Use the separately sold AC adaptor (AD-S42120C) for the power supply of the Ethernet Cradle. Always make sure to connect the AC adaptor to the Ethernet Cradle before performing communication with the Handheld Terminal. Power to the Handheld Terminal is supplied from the Ethernet Cradle.
4. Before using the cradle ports, remove the caps from the ports. When using a LAN, connect one end of the LAN cable to the LAN port and the other end to the PC or hub. When using a USB connection, connect one end of the USB cable (DT-380USB-A) to the USB port and the other end to the PC.
Important! • Always make sure to ﬁ rst remove the 970 from the Ethernet Cradle when switching the selector switch. • Water or other liquids on the data communication or power supply terminals can lead to an electric shock or ﬁ re. Note also that soiling on the terminals will impair the connection, leading to reduced power supply and communication functionality.
Adjusting the Laser Beam Width You can select the laser beam width used by the DT-970. Note that using this function may result in a laser beam width error. In this event, use the procedure below to adjust the laser beam width. 1.
