Data Capture

Introduction

This chapter provides information for capturing bar code data using the internal camera and optional scan modules

and Bluetooth scanner.

The MC33XX offers the following data capture options:

imager.

laser scanner.

RS507 Hands-free imager.

RS6000 Bluetooth Ring Scanner.

Imager

The device with an integrated imager has the following features:

Omnidirectional reading of a variety of bar code symbologies, including the most popular linear, postal,

PDF417, and 2D matrix code types.

Advanced intuitive laser aiming cross-hair for easy point-and-shoot operation.

The modules uses digital camera technology to take a digital picture of a bar code, stores the resulting image in its

memory, and executes state-of-the-art software decoding algorithms to extract the data from the image.

Operational Modes

The device with an integrated imager supports two modes of operation, listed below. Activate each mode by

pressing a scan button.

Decode Mode: In this mode, the device attempts to locate and decode enabled bar codes within its field of

view. The imager remains in this mode as long as the user holds the scan button, or until it decodes a bar

code.

NOTE:DataWedge is installed and enabled on the MC33XX by default.

By default, the good decode beep is set to system volume (Music and Media). The good decode

beep can be set to another sound (Notifications or Alarms) and the volume can be independently

controlled. See the DataWedge section in the MC33XX Integrator Guide for more information.

Pick List Mode: This mode allows the user to selectively decode a bar code when more than one bar code

is in the device’s field of view. To accomplish this, move the aiming crosshair over the required bar code to

decode only this bar code. This feature is ideal for pick lists containing multiple bar codes and

manufacturing or transport labels containing more than one bar code type (either 1D or 2D).

Laser Scanner

The MC33XX with laser scanner has the following features:

Reading of a variety of bar code symbologies, including the most popular linear, postal, and 1-D code

types.

Intuitive aiming for easy point-and-shoot operation.

RS507 Hands-Free Imager

The RS507 Hands-free Imager is a wearable bar code scan solution for both 1D and 2D bar code symbologies.

The scanner supports Simple Serial Interface (SSI) andBluetooth Human Interface Device (HID) connection to the

device where the scanner emulates a keyboard.

Scanning Considerations

Typically, scanning is a simple matter of aim, scan, and decode where a few quick trial efforts master it. However,

consider the following to optimize scanning performance:

Range

Any scanning device decodes well over a particular working range — minimum and maximum

distances from the bar code. This range varies according to bar code density and scanning device

optics.

Scanning within range brings quick and constant decodes; scanning too close or too far away prevents

decodes. Move the scanner closer and farther away to find the right working range for the bar codes

being scanned.

Angle

Scan angle is important for promoting quick decodes. When laser beams reflect directly back into the

scanner from the bar code, this specular reflection can “blind” the scanner.

To avoid this, scan the bar code so that the beam does not bounce directly back. But do not scan at

too sharp an angle; the scanner needs to collect scattered reflections from the scan to make a

successful decode. Practice quickly shows what tolerances to work within.

Hold the device farther away for larger symbols.

Move the device closer for symbols with bars that are close together.

Bar Code Capture with Imager

To capture bar code data:

1. Ensure that an application is open on the device and a text field is in focus (text cursor in text field).

2. Point the top of the device at a bar code.

Figure 64 Bar Code Scanning – MC33XX–G

3. Press and hold the Scan button or Trigger.

The red laser aiming pattern turns on to assist in aiming.

4. Ensure the bar code is within the area formed by the cross-hairs in the aiming pattern. The aiming dot is used

for increased visibility in bright lighting conditions.

NOTE:Scanning procedures depend on the application and device configuration. An application may use

different scanning procedures from those described.

Introduction

This section provides information on the wireless features:

Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN)

Bluetooth

Near Field Communications (NFC)

Wireless Local Area Networks

Wireless local area networks (WLANs) allow the MC33XX to communicate wirelessly inside a building. Before

using the MC33XX on a WLAN, the facility must be set up with the required hardware to run the WLAN (sometimes

known as infrastructure). The infrastructure and the MC33XX must both be properly configured to enable this

communication.

Refer to the documentation provided with the infrastructure (access points (APs), access ports, switches, Radius

servers, etc.) for instructions on how to set up the infrastructure.

Once the infrastructure is set up to enforce the chosen WLAN security scheme, use the Wireless & networks

settings to configure the MC33XX to match the security scheme.

The MC33XX supports the following WLAN security options:

Open

Wireless Equivalent Privacy (WEP)

Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA)/WPA2 Personal (PSK)

Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP)

LEAP

FAST - with Microsoft Challenge-Handshake Authentication Protocol version 2 (MSCHAPv2) and

Generic Token Card (GTC) authentication.

Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol (PEAP) - with MSCHAPV2 and GTC authentication.

Transport Layer Security (TLS)

TTLS - with Password Authentication Protocol (PAP), MSCHAP and MSCHAPv2 authentication.

The Status bar displays icons that indicate Wi-Fi network availability and Wi-Fi status. See Status Bar on page 33

for more information.

Bluetooth

Bluetooth-equipped devices can communicate without wires, using frequency-hopping spread spectrum (FHSS)

radio frequency (RF) to transmit and receive data in the 2.4 GHz Industry Scientific and Medical (ISM) band

(802.15.1). Bluetooth wireless technology is specifically designed for short-range (10 meters (32.8 feet) )

communication and low power consumption.

Devices with Bluetooth capabilities can exchange information (e.g., files, appointments, and tasks) with other

Bluetooth enabled devices such as printers, access points, and other mobile devices.

The MC33XX supports Bluetooth Low Energy. Bluetooth Low Energy is targeted at applications in the healthcare,

fitness, security, and home entertainment industries. It provides reduced power consumption and cost while

maintaining standard Bluetooth range.

Adaptive Frequency Hopping

Adaptive Frequency Hopping (AFH) is a method of avoiding fixed frequency interferers, and can be used with

Bluetooth voice. All devices in the piconet (Bluetooth network) must be AFH-capable in order for AFH to work.

There is no AFH when connecting and discovering devices. Avoid making Bluetooth connections and discoveries

during critical 802.11b communications. AFH for Bluetooth consists of four main sections:

Channel Classification - A method of detecting an interference on a channel-by-channel basis, or

pre-defined channel mask.

Link Management - Coordinates and distributes the AFH information to the rest of the Bluetooth network.

Hop Sequence Modification - Avoids interference by selectively reducing the number of hopping channels.

Channel Maintenance - A method for periodically re-evaluating the channels.

When AFH is enabled, the Bluetooth radio “hops around” (instead of through) the 802.11b high-rate channels. AFH

coexistence allows Enterprise devices to operate in any infrastructure.

The Bluetooth radio in this device operates as a Class 2 device power class. The maximum output power is 2.5

mW and the expected range is 10 meters (32.8 ft.). A definition of ranges based on power class is difficult to obtain

due to power and device differences, and whether one measures open space or closed office space.

Security

The current Bluetooth specification defines security at the link level. Application-level security is not specified. This

allows application developers to define security mechanisms tailored to their specific need. Link-level security

occurs between devices, not users, while application-level security can be implemented on a per-user basis. The

Bluetooth specification defines security algorithms and procedures required to authenticate devices, and if needed,

encrypt the data flowing on the link between the devices. Device authentication is a mandatory feature of Bluetooth

while link encryption is optional.

Pairing of Bluetooth devices is accomplished by creating an initialization key used to authenticate the devices and

create a link key for them. Entering a common personal identification number (PIN) in the devices being paired

generates the initialization key. The PIN is never sent over the air. By default, the Bluetooth stack responds with no

key when a key is requested (it is up to user to respond to the key request event). Authentication of Bluetooth

devices is based-upon a challenge-response transaction. Bluetooth allows for a PIN or passkey used to create

other 128-bit keys used for security and encryption. The encryption key is derived from the link key used to

operation is required.

authenticate the pairing devices. Also worthy of note is the limited range and fast frequency hopping of the

Bluetooth radios that makes long-distance eavesdropping difficult.

Recommendations are:

Perform pairing in a secure environment

Keep PIN codes private and do not store the PIN codes in the device

Implement application-level security.

Bluetooth Profiles

The MC33XX supports the following Bluetooth services:

Service Discovery Protocol (SDP) - Handles the search for known and specific services as well as general

services.

Serial Port Profile (SPP) - Allows use of RFCOMM protocol to emulate serial cable connection between

two Bluetooth peer devices. For example, connecting the device to a printer.

Object Push Profile (OPP) - Allows the device to push and pull objects to and from a push server.

Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) - Allows the device to stream stereo-quality audio to a wireless

headset or wireless stereo speakers.

Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP) - Allows the device to control A/V equipment to which a user

has access. It may be used in concert with A2DP.

Personal Area Network (PAN) - Allows the use of Bluetooth Network Encapsulation Protocol to provide L3

networking capabilities over a Bluetooth link. Only PANU role is supported.

Human Interface Device Profile (HID) - Allows Bluetooth keyboards, pointing devices, gaming devices and

remote monitoring devices to connect to the device.

Headset Profile (HSP) - Allows a hands-free device, such as a Bluetooth headset, to place and receive

calls on the device.

Hands-Free Profile (HFP) - Allows car hands-free kits to communicate with the device in the car.

Phone Book Access Profile (PBAP) - Allows exchange of Phone Book Objects between a car kit and a

mobile device to allow the car kit to display the name of the incoming caller; allow the car kit to download

the phone book so the user can initiate a call from the car display.

Symbol Serial Interface (SSI) - Allows for communication with Bluetooth Imager.

File Transfer Profile (FTP) - Provides the capability to browse, manipulate and transfer files in file system

of another system. Uses GOEP as a basis.

Generic Attribute Profile (GATT) - Provides profile discovery and description services for Bluetooth Low

Energy protocol. It defines how attributes are grouped together into sets to form services.

HID Over GATT Profile (HOGP) - Defines the procedures and features used by Bluetooth low energy HID

Devices using GATT and Bluetooth HID Hosts using GATT.

Scan Parameters Profile (ScPP) - Provides devices with information to assist them in managing their

connection idle timeout and advertising parameters to optimize for power consumption and/or

reconnection latency.
