    3. Change the Computer Friendly Name at the bottom of the Settings display. The Bluetooth VX6 default name is determined by the LXE factory installed software version. LXE strongly urges assigning every VX6 a unique name (up to 32 characters) before Bluetooth Discovery is initiated.
  • Page 35: Settings Tab | Bluetooth Options

    These options can still be checked or unchecked whether Bluetooth connection is enabled or disabled. As Bluetooth devices pair with the VX6, the name of the device and an icon representing the type of device is displayed in the Devices window. The icon state changes as the paired Bluetooth devices connect and disconnect from the VX6.
  • Page 36: Continuous Search

    10. Whenever the VX6 is turned On, all previously paired, live, Bluetooth devices in the vicinity are paired, one at a time, with the VX6. If the devices cannot connect to the VX6 before the re-connect timeout time period expires (default is approximately 20 seconds for each paired device) there is no indication of the continuing disconnect state if Report Failure to Reconnect is disabled.
  • Page 37: Bluetooth Devices

    The Bluetooth taskbar Icon state and Bluetooth LED states change as Bluetooth devices are discovered, pair, connect and disconnect. There may be audible or visual signals as paired devices re-connect with the VX6. Only LXE printers or scanners are recognized and displayed in the Bluetooth panel. All other Bluetooth devices are ignored.

  • Page 86: Power Supply

    AC to DC power input for the VX6 is delivered via an optional external power supply. See “External Power Supply”. Vehicle power input for the VX6 is 12V to 80V DC nominal and is accepted without the need to perform any manual operation within the VX6. See “Vehicle 12-80VDC Direct Connection”. An optional uninterruptible power supply (UPS) battery can be used with the vehicle DC power supply.
