It transmits data to a computer via an asynchronous serial port, using CMOS level signals, at user definable baud rates. The SmartWand Reader’s configuration may be changed by scanning special bar code menus, or by sending escape sequences to the wand from the host. The 4-66 configuration is stored in nonvolatile memory, allowing the SmartWand Reader to retain the configuration when the power is turned off. A Configuration Display option sends a summary of the configured options to the screen. In its default configuration, the SmartWand Reader can automatically recognize and decode 9 standard bar code symbologies. Configurable options include: symbology selection, checksum verification, length checking, message editing, LED feedback control, Code 39 digital wand emulation mode, serial port configuration, and various I/O protocols such as single read modes, Xon/Xoff pacing and no-read recognition. The polycarbonate-cased SmartWand Readers (HBSW8000,8200,8400) have an LED near the tip that flashes after a good read. The LED also flashes during bar code menu programming and to signal any self-test failures after power-up. All SmartWand Readers have an enhanced software version of Hewlett-Packard’s proven 5965-5940E decoding algorithm. The SmartWands are also very suitable for portable computer or terminal applications due to its low current draw. Visual Feedback LED The SmartWand Readers with polycarbonate-cases have an easyto-see Feedback LED near the scanner tip that acknowledges a good read. This is useful in a noisy environment or where silence is required. Since the state of the LED can be controlled by escape sequences, the host processor can turn the LED on or off at any time. SmartWand Reader Configuration The SmartWand Reader can be configured by scanning special bar code labels or by receiving escape sequence commands from the host. This allows decoding options and interface protocols to be tailored to a specific application. Configuration labels and a list of escape sequences are printed in the SmartWand User’s Manual (P/N: HBSW-8997). The SmartWand Reader can display its current configuration on the host’s screen. See sample.

Any customer purchasing the product with stripped and tinned leads or a connector without adequate shielding has the responsibility to comply with FCC regulations. Moreover, if the HP SmartWand Reader is purchased without a connector, the product becomes defined as a subassembly and the FCC Identification number no longer applies. HP assumes no responsibility or liability for users of the HP SmartWand Readers without connectors that fail to comply with FCC regulations. 5.0 6.0 8 9 12 Scanning 16 18 24 With LED on 25 29 38 Idle 100 mV peak to peak FCC Certification 4.5 General Mechanical Specifications SAPHIRE TIP 23.0 (0.9) LED H HEWLETT PACKARD 160 (6.3) 19.0 (0.8) 790 (31) 590 (27) 24.9 33 (0.98) (1.3) 230 (9) 180 (7) 38.1 (1.5) 66 (2.6) 300 (12) 200 (8) 7.6 (0.3) 15.2 (0.6) H 160 (6.2) This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules.
