Zebra DS4608 operation manual (43)

Data Capture

Scanning

The DS4608 digital scanner is in hands-free (presentation) mode when it is placed in the gooseneck Intellistand. In this mode, the digital scanner operates in continuous (constant-on) mode, where it automatically decodes a barcode presented in its field of view.

When the digital scanner is not used for a user-definable period of time, it enters a low power mode in which the LEDs are turned off or illumination blinks at a low duty cycle until the digital scanner detects an image change (e.g. motion).

Scanning in Hands-Free (Presentation) Mode

The optional stand adds greater flexibility to DS4608 scanning operation. When the scanner is seated in the stand’s “cup,” the scanner’s built-in sensor places the scanner in hands-free (presentation) mode. When the scanner is removed from the stand, it automatically switches to its programmed hand-held triggered mode.

Assemble the Stand

To assemble the stand:

1.Unscrew the wing nut from the bottom of the one piece scanner “cup.”

Figure 4 Assembling the Stand

One piece scanner Zebra DS4608 operation manual (44) “cup” with flexible “gooseneck”

Wingnut

2.Fit the bottom of the gooseneck piece into the opening on the top of the stand base.

3.Tighten the wing nut underneath the base to secure the cup and neck piece to the base.

4.Bend the neck to the desired position for scanning.

37

Data Capture

Mounting the Stand (optional)

You can attach the base of the scanner’s stand to a flat surface using two screws or double-sided tape (not provided).

Figure 5 Mounting the Stand

Two screw-mount holes

Zebra DS4608 operation manual (47)Zebra DS4608 operation manual (48)Double-sided tape areas

(3 places) dimensions = 1” x 2”)

Screw Mount

1.Position the assembled base on a flat surface.

2.Screw one #10 wood screw into each screw-mount hole until the base of the stand is secure (see Figure 5).

Tape Mount

1.Peel the paper liner off one side of each piece of tape and place the sticky surface over each of the three rectangular tape holders.

2.Peel the paper liner off the exposed sides of each piece of tape and press the stand on a flat surface until it is secure (see Figure 5).

Scanning with the Stand

When the digital scanner is placed in the gooseneck Intellistand it operates in continuous (constant-on) mode, where it automatically decodes a barcode presented in its field of view.

To operate the scanner in the stand:

1.Ensure the scanner is properly connected to the host (see the appropriate host chapter for information on host connections).

2.Insert the scanner in the gooseneck Intellistand by placing the front of the scanner into the stand’s “cup.”

38

Zebra DS4608 operation manual (49)

Data Capture

Figure 6 Inserting the Scanner in the Gooseneck Intellistand

3.Adjust the scan angle by bending the stand’s flexible “gooseneck” body.

4.Present the barcode. Upon successful decode, the scanner beeps and the LED momentarily shuts off. For more information about beeper and LED definitions, see Table 3 and Table 4.

Scanning in Hand-Held Mode

Pick up the digital scanner. The aiming dot displays.

1.Ensure the aiming dot is centered on the barcode. See Aiming below

Figure 7 Centering the Aiming Dot on the Barcode

.

39

Zebra DS4608 operation manual (50)

Data Capture

2.Press and hold the trigger until either:

a.The digital scanner reads the barcode. The digital scanner beeps, the LED flashes, and the aiming dot turns off.

Or

b.The digital scanner does not read the barcode and the aiming dot turns off.

3.Release the trigger.

Aiming

When scanning, the digital scanner projects an LED dot which allows positioning the barcode within its field of view. See Decode Ranges on page 41 for the proper distance to achieve between the digital scanner and a barcode.

Figure 8 Aiming Dot

If necessary, the digital scanner turns on its illumination LEDs to illuminate the target barcode.

To scan a barcode, center the symbol and ensure the entire symbol is within the rectangular area formed by the illumination LEDs.

Figure 9 Scanning Orientation with Aiming Dot

1D barcode

2D barcode

The digital scanner can also read a barcode presented within the aiming dot not centered. The top examples in Figure show acceptable aiming options, while the bottom examples can not be decoded.

Figure 10 Acceptable Aiming

40

Zebra DS4608 operation manual (51)

Data Capture

Figure 11 Incorrect Aiming

The aiming dot is smaller when the digital scanner is closer to the symbol and larger when it is farther from the symbol. Scan symbols with smaller bars or elements (mil size) closer to the digital scanner, and those with larger bars or elements (mil size) farther from the digital scanner.

The digital scanner beeps to indicate that it successfully decoded the barcode. For more information on beeper and LED definitions, see Table 3 and Table 4.

Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS)

NOTE: EAS is available only on scanner models that support Checkpoint EAS.

Some scanner configurations include an integrated Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) antenna.

The scanner's integrated EAS deactivation antenna requires an EAS host cable. This Y-cable connects to the scanner's host port at one end, and splits to the host and the EAS system at the other end.

Installing

Checkpoint EAS Model Compatibility

The scanner is intended for use with Checkpoint CP-VII, CP-IX, and CP-XI systems. It does not support CP-IV and other low-power receiver-based EAS deactivation systems.

42

Zebra DS4608 operation manual (53)

Data Capture

Considerations

The Checkpoint CP-VII system generates a periodic burst of electromagnetic energy that deactivates EAS tags brought near the scanner. To avoid interference with the scanner’s operation, take the following precautions when installing the EAS system:

Position the EAS antenna box as far as possible from the scanner (at least 6 in. / 15.24 cm.)

Position the EAS antenna, EAS antenna box, EAS control cable, and EAS controller box as far as possible from the scanner’s host and power cables.

EAS range is as dependent on the Checkpoint system (which is calibrated onsite) as it is on the scanner. Therefore, we cannot provide estimated ranges, however these are some of the factors that contribute to EAS range:

Antenna – Length, gauge, number of turns, placement in the scanner.

Type of Checkpoint EAS system used (ie. CP-VII, CP-IX, and CP-XI).

Length of wire connecting antenna to (Checkpoint) EAS (site/installation dependent)

Settings done within Checkpoint system (site/installation dependent).

Checkpoint Contact Information

Contact your local Checkpoint representative to install the EAS cable to the Checkpoint Deactivation System.
