    Wand Emulation Interface 10 - 7 Convert All Bar Codes to Code 39 By default, the Wand Emulation interface sends data to the attached host in the symbology decoded. This can be a problem for users with older systems that do not recognize newer symbologies (for example, GS1 DataBar). Enabling this parameter ignores the decoded symbology, and outputs the data as a Code 39 bar code.

    11 - 10 Symbol DS3408 Product Reference Guide Transmission Timeout The Scanner Emulation host transmits bar code data to the attached decoder and waits for the decoder to assert the Decode signal, indicating successful transmission. If, after a specified amount of time, the Decode signal is not asserted (indicating that the attached decoder did not receive the bar code data), the digital scanner issues transmit error beeps.
