    4 - 26 DS4208 Digital Scanner Product Reference Guide Multicode Expression Syntax: [n] [Element 1]; [Element 2 ]; ... [Element n]; Where n is the number of elements in the overall expression. The multicode expression describes the bar code(s) that the digital scanner can expect to find in an image. Each element represents one bar code in the digital scanner's field of view.

  • Page 79: Example 1

    User Preferences & Miscellaneous Digital Scanner Options 4 - 27 • When defining regions: • Defining a region much larger than the bar code improves tolerance to scan distance and angle, but can cause a decode of a nearby bar code instead of the target bar code. Therefore, for best performance define larger regions when only a few bar codes are in view and those in view are widely separated.

Before programming, follow the instructions in Chapter 1, Getting Started. To set feature values, scan a single bar code or a short bar code sequence. The settings are stored in non-volatile memory and are preserved even when the digital scanner powers down.
