2564MR Barcode Scanner User Guide
1.1.2 POWER ECONOMY
The scanner features “Power-Saving”, “Auto Power Off” and “Auto Power Off Ignoring Scan
Mode” giving consideration to the power issue that is generally critical for
Bluetooth-enabled devices. By the scanner’s support of power economy, its power
consumption may progress by the following transition:
1) running at full CPU speed at power-on
2) shifting to low CPU speed (Power-Saving)
3) finally shutting down automatically (Auto Power Off)
In the following content of this section, you will be guided through the configurations for the
scanner’s power economy.
1.1.2.1 POWER-SAVING
For the scanner to save power, you need to appoint the timing for the scanner to shift to
power-saving mode. Make the configuration that best suits your application while noting the
following points:
Power-Saving: 1~254 minutes configurable. 0= Disable.
By default, the scanner stands by at full-speed for 2 minutes after power-on and before
entering low-speed mode. If Power-Saving isn’t desired, set it to 0 to disable it. Read the
setup barcode in the following to achieve the setup.
Note: Power-Saving setting won’t take effect when the WPAN connection is established
successfully whether via BT HID or SPP.
Power-
S
aving after
0~254 min. (*2)
1) Read the barcode above to enable the scanner to enter low-speed “Power-Saving”.
2) Assign the time for the scanner to enter low-speed mode by reading the “Decimal Value
barcode on page 263. For example, read “5” for the scanner to enter low-speed mode
after idleness of 5 minutes.
3) Read the “Validate” barcode on the same page to complete this setting.
Note: Power-Saving won’t take effect when one of the following conditions is met:
(1) the scanner has already established a BT HID/SPP connection,
(2) the scanner is in the configuration mode,
(3) the scan mode is set to Test Mode,
(4) the setting value of Power-Saving is greater than that of Auto Power Off.
25
Update
Chapter 1
Understanding the Barcode Scanner
1.1.2.2 AUTO POWER OFF
For the scanner to save power, further to setting up “Power-Saving” mode, you may also
need to enable “Auto Power Off”, which deals with a time for the scanner to automatically
power off after power-on. Make the configuration that best suits your application while
noting the following points:
Auto Power Off: 1~254 minutes configurable. 0= Disable.
1. By default, the scanner automatically shuts down 10 minutes after power-on.
2. If Auto Power Off isn’t desired, set the parameter to 0 to disable it.
3. When the scan mode is set to Test Mode, you need to enable “Auto Power Off
Ignoring Scan Mode” in addition to enabling “Auto Power Off”. See the following
section 1.1.2.3 Auto Power Off Ignoring Scan Mode.
Note: When the scanner is set to any scan mode other than Test Mode, you can ignore
“Auto Power Off Ignoring Scan Mode”.
Auto Power
O
ff after
0~254 min. (*10)
1) Read the barcode above to enable the scanner to automatically turn off at a specified
time after power-on.
2) Assign the auto power off time by reading the “Decimal Value” barcode on page 263. For
example, read “1” and “5” for the scanner to automatically turn off after idleness of 15
minutes.
3) Read the “Validate” barcode on the same page to complete this setting.
Note: “Auto Power Off” will not take effect when the scanner is in the configuration mode.
1.1.2.3 AUTO POWER OFF IGNORING SCAN MODE
This mode is intended only for Test Mode. To force a scanner that is set to Test Mode to
automatically power off to save power, you need the following settings:
1. Enable “Auto Power Off” and set a time for the scanner to automatically power off
after power-on. See the foregoing section 1.1.2.2 Auto Power Off
2. Enable “Auto Power Off Ignoring Scan Mode” by reading the barcode below:
26
Enter Setup
2564MR Barcode Scanner User Guide
Enable
*Disable
Read the barcode above to enable/disable automatic power-off for Test Mode.
Note: “Auto Power Off Ignoring Scan Mode” only features enabling and disabling. It doesn’t
feature the setting of auto power-off time. Such setting should be configured in the
preceding setup of “Auto Power Off”.
1.1.3 POWER ECONOMY VS. WPAN CONNECTION
Before the scanner can communicate with the host computer, Bluetooth connection (or
WPAN connection) needs to be established. The scanner’s power economy always
accommodates itself to the establishment of the WPAN connection.
The following describes how the scanner carries out power economy before and after the
establishment of the WPAN connection:
Before establishing a WPAN connection successfully…
1. The scanner stays active for a specified period of time (2 minutes by default) for the following
scenarios. The CPU runs at full speed, and the LED blinks blue (On/Off ratio 0.5 s: 0.5 s).
(a) waiting for a connection request from the host (BT SPP Slave Mode)
(b) trying to connect to the host (BT HID or BT SPP Master Mode)
(c) trying to connect to the cradle
2. If the scanner fails to connect within 2 minutes, it becomes inactive to save power for the
remaining period of time (the specified “Auto Power Off” value minus 2 minutes). The CPU starts
to run at low speed, and the LED begins to blink red (On/Off ratio 0.3 s: 2.5 s).
Pull the trigger to wake up the scanner when it becomes inactive, and the scanner will become
active again.
3. If it fails to connect again and again, and finally stays inactive until the specified Auto Power Off
time elapses, the scanner will automatically turn off in order to conserve battery power.
Pull down the trigger for about 2 seconds to turn it on again.
Note: For scenarios (a) and (b) in step 1, you may need to search for the scanner again on
your computer.
After establishing a WPAN connection successfully…
1. Once a WPAN connection is established successfully, the scanner will stay active for a specified

For BT HID, the scanner resumes the connection with the host upon powering on again, as
long as the host application is running. You will hear three short beeps, tone ascending from
low to high upon the resumption. If the scanner fails to resume the connection, it will try
every 5 seconds to re-connect to the host unless you have the scanner read the “Reset
Connection” barcode.
For BT SPP Slave Mode, the scanner waits for the host to re-connect.
For BT SPP Master Mode, the scanner resumes the connection with the host upon powering
on again as long as the host application is running. You will hear three short beeps, tone
ascending from low to high upon resumption. If the scanner fails to resume the connection,
it will try every 5 seconds to re-connect to the host unless you have the scanner read the

1.2 MEMORY
The collected data can be sent back to a host computer one by one via the WPAN connection
or stored in flash memory when the scanner is set to Memory mode.
1.2.1 TRANSMIT BUFFER
By default, transmit buffer is enabled and for use when the scanner is out of range. Upon
reading a barcode successfully within range, the scanner responds with one short beep
(high tone) and its LED indicator becomes solid green and goes off quickly. However, the
host computer may not receive the data immediately if getting out of range. With the 10 KB
transmit buffer, the scanner can ignore the transmission status and keep on reading
barcodes until the buffer is full.
When transmit buffer is enabled…
If the scanner is out of range, it will respond with two short beeps, high-low tone, upon reading a
barcode successfully.
When transmit buffer is full, the scanner will respond with one long beep (low tone) and its LED
indicator will become solid red and go off quickly. You are advised to get back to range.
When transmit buffer is disabled…
If the scanner is out of range, it will respond with one long beep (low tone) and its LED indicator will

If "No Redundancy" is selected, one successful decoding will make the reading valid and
induce the "READER Event".
If "Two Times" is selected, it will take a total of three consecutive successful decoding of
the same barcode to make the reading valid. The higher the reading security is (that is,
the more redundancy the user selects), the slower the reading speed gets.
It is obvious that the more redundancy you select, the higher the reading security is, and
thus, the slower the reading speed becomes. You will have to compromise between reading

Device Name Broadcasting
The scanner can be configured to hide itself from other devices equipped with Bluetooth® wireless
technology. Simply disable the device name broadcasting setting so that it won’t be discovered by any
other computer or PDA. However, broadcasting must be enabled for establishing an initial connection
with the scanner. For example, you can disable device name broadcasting after successfully
connecting the scanner to WorkStation1. Such connection will be maintained automatically unless the
scanner is removed from the paired device list (called unpairing) by WorkStation1 or any changes
made to authentication and the PIN code. If you want WorkStation2 to connect to the scanner, you will
have to enable device name broadcasting first.
*Enable

4.26 MACRO PDF
Macro PDF is a special feature for concatenating multiple PDF barcodes into one file, known
as Macro PDF417 or Macro MicroPDF417.
Note: When printing barcodes, keep each Macro PDF sequence separate, as each has a
unique identifier. Do not mix barcodes from several Macro PDF sequences, even if
they encode the same data. When you scan Macro PDF sequences, scan the entire
Macro PDF sequence without interruption!
4.26.1 TRANSMIT/DECODE MODE
Decide how to handle Macro PDF decoding.
Buffer All Symbols / Transmit Macro PDF When Complete
Transmit all decoded data from an entire Macro PDF sequence only when the entire
sequence is scanned and decoded. If the decoded data exceeds the limit of 50 symbols,
no transmission because the entire sequence was not scanned!
Transmit Any Symbol in Set / No Particular Order
Transmit data from each Macro PDF symbol as decoded, regardless of the sequence.
Passthrough All Symbols
Transmit and decode all Macro PDF symbols and perform no processing. In this mode,
the host is responsible for detecting and parsing the Macro PDF sequences.

4.26.2 ESCAPE CHARACTERS
When enabled, it uses the backslash "\" as an Escape character for systems that can
process transmissions containing special data sequences. It will format special data
according to the Global Label Identifier (GLI) protocol, which only affects the data portion of
a Macro PDF symbol transmission. The Control Header, if enabled, is always sent with GLI
formatting.
GLI Protocol
*None
4.26.3 TRANSMIT CONTROL HEADER
The control header contains the segment index and file ID. For example, the field may be
“\92800000\725\120\343”. The five digits after the \928 are the segment index (or block
index), and \725\120\343 is the file ID.
Enable this when selecting “Transmit Any Symbol in Set/ No Particular Order”.
Disable this when selecting “Buffer All Symbols/Transmit Macro PDF When Complete”.
This option has no effect when selecting "Passthrough All Symbols".

You may configure in which format the collected data will be output to the host computer.
Barcode read by the scanner will be processed in the following sequence –
1) Perform character substitution on the data scanned.
2) Add Code ID and Length Code to the front of the data:[Code ID][Length Code][Data]
3) Process the whole data in step 2 with user formats. Data is now divided into fields by
user specified rules. Refer to Chapter 6 Applying Formats for Data Editing.

5.2 CHARACTER SUBSTITUTION
Character substitution is performed on every occurrence of the first character specified. If
only one character is specified, every occurrence of that character in the barcode will be
taken away.
The first character will be replaced by the second character(s).
Up to three sets of character substitution can be configured.
If “BT HID”, “USB HID” or “Keyboard Wedge” is configured for interface, Key Type and
Key Status will then become applicable. You may decide whether or not to apply Key
Status when “Normal Key” is selected for Key Type.

1) Read the barcode above to enable character substitution by set.
For example, have the scanner read the “Set 1” barcode to configure the first set of
character substitution. The scanner will respond with one short beep, high tone, to
indicate more setup barcodes are required.
2) Read the “Hexadecimal Value” barcode on page 264 for the desired character
substitution. For example:
KEY TYPE = NORMAL
Read “3”, “0”, “2”, and “D” to replace the character “0” with a dash “-”.
Read “3”, “0”, “2”, “D”, “3”, and “0” to replace the character “0” with a dash “-0”.
KEY TYPE = SCAN CODE
If you want to replace the character “0” with “a” (= “1C” on the scan code table):
1. Read “3” and “0”.
2. Read the “Scan Code” barcode.
3. Read “1” and “C”.
KEY TYPE = NORMAL + KEY STATUS = SHIFT
If you want to replace the character “0” with “!” (= “Shift” + “1” on keyboard):
1. Read “3” and “0”.
2. Read the “Add Shift” barcode.
3. Read “3” and “1”.
3) Read the “Validate” barcode to complete this setting. (The defined set or sets will be
applied to all symbologies by default.)

scanner to apply Laser mode as the scan mode. To concatenate barcodes, the maximum
output data length of all the barcodes is 10 KB after configuration. When the data length
exceeds 10 KB, the concatenation will not take effect.
Note: The Multi-Barcode Editor has nothing to do with Multi-Barcode Mode.

length of the (first) barcode. For example, read “0065” for barcode length of 65
characters or read “0000” for any length.
Note: If not reading 0000 for any length, the 4-digit length must exclude prefix, suffix
(0x0d by default), length code, etc.
4) Matching Character setting – read the “Hexadecimal Value” barcode on page 264 for the
1st character that must be found matching in the (first) barcode. For example, read “4”
and “1” for matching character “A” as the first character in the barcode or read “00” for
any character.
5) Read twice the “F” barcode on page 264 (“FF”) to complete the setting of each barcode.
6) Read the “Validate” barcode to end the editing of the barcode set.
5.6.2 ACTIVATE THE CONCATENATION OF BARCODES
By default, the output sequence editing of the concatenation of barcodes is not applied.
When “Enforce Output Sequence” is enabled, all barcodes read by the scanner must meet
with the criteria for the concatenation. If data is found excluded from all output sequence
sets (= not meeting with the criteria), the scanner will not accept the reading, and therefore,
data will not be transmitted.
When “Apply Output Sequence” is enabled, only barcodes found meeting with the criteria
are counted for the concatenation. Those found not meeting with the criteria are processed
normally and individually.
Note: When it requires reading more barcodes to complete the “output sequence”
requirements, the scanner will respond with one short beep (low tone). After reading
an acceptable barcode, its LED indicator will become solid green and go off quickly (=
Good Read). Upon completion
of reading acceptable barcodes, the scanner will respond with one short beep (high
tone) and its LED indicator will become solid green and go off quickly (= Good Read).

5.7 REMOVAL OF SPECIAL CHARACTER
You can only specify 1 character, but it will remove every matching character encountered
from the starting position of barcode data until a different character is met. For example, if
it is configured to remove the character “0” (hex value is “30”), one or more zeros will be
stripped off the barcode data “012345” and “00012345”. However, for barcode data
“010333”, only the first zero will be stripped off.

1) Read the barcode above to remove the specified character.
2) Read the “Hexadecimal Value” barcode on page 264 for the desired character string. For

that shares the common purpose of identifying, tracking, recording, storing, and
communicating essential business, personal, or product data. Enabling this function can
have the scanner be capable of fast and accurate data collection and search.

The scanner allows advanced data editing by applying user-configured editing formats. The
whole processed data can be divided into fields by user-specified rules. These fields
together with the user-configurable additional fields comprise the data actually sent to the
host computer.
With the editing format applied, the maximum output data length of a barcode is 7 KB after
configuration. If the data length exceeds 7 KB, editing format will not take effect.

6.1.1 ACTIVATE EDITING FORMATS
If you have already configured any editing format before, you may directly apply the editing
format. If not, you must start with configuring an editing format first, and then, activate the
editing format when it is desired in use.

6.1.2 EXCLUSIVE DATA EDITING
By default, only barcodes found meeting with the criteria are processed by the editing
formats. Those found not meeting with the criteria are processed normally.
When “Exclusive Data Editing” is enabled, all barcodes read by the scanner must be
processed by the editing formats. If data is found excluded from all enabled editing formats
(= not meeting with the specified criteria), the scanner will not accept the reading, and
therefore, data will not be transmitted.

Up to five different formats can be specified.
Configure Format 1
Configure Format 2
Configure Format 3
Configure Format 4
Configure Format 5
Note: Before you complete the programming of an editing format, if you have the scanner
read any barcode for parameters other than those pertaining to the editing format, it will
automatically abort the programming process.
End Programming Format
After having configured all the desired parameters, you must have the scanner read the “End
Programming Format” barcode, which can be located at the bottom of every even page in this chapter.

6.3 CONFIGURING FORMAT — DEFINE DATA CRITERIA
Three applicable conditions can be configured to check whether the data read by the
scanner can be processed by the particular editing format.
Note: Data editing cannot be performed unless the three conditions are all met.
6.3.1 APPLICABLE CODE TYPE
By default, barcodes of all the supported symbologies will be processed by any editing
format, if having been configured and enabled. For quick configuration, you may first clear
all, and then select the desired symbologies.
Note: You must have at least one symbology selected.
