3 CONFIGURATION
Once your reader is setup, you can change the default parameters to meet your
application needs. Refer to chapter 2 for initial configuration in order to set the
default values and select the interface for your application.
In this manual, the configuration parameters are divided into logical groups making it
easy to find the desired function based on its reference group.
The first three groups are for Standard Interface parameter configuration:
• RS232
• WEDGE
• PEN EMULATION
The following parameter groups are common to all interface applications:
DATA FORMAT parameters regard the messages sent to the Host system for all
interfaces except Pen Emulation.
POWER SAVE manages overall current consumption in the reading device.
READING PARAMETERS control various operating modes and indicator status
functioning.
DECODING PARAMETERS maintain correct barcode decoding in certain special
reading conditions.
CODE SELECTION parameters allow configuration of a personalized mix of codes,
code families and their options.
ADVANCED FORMATTING PARAMETERS allow code concatenation and
advanced formatting of messages towards the Host. It cannot be used with Pen
Emulation connections.
RADIO PARAMETERS (M series only) allow configuration of radio protocol
timeouts.

KEYBOARD SETTING
ALPHANUMERIC KEYBOARD SETTING
The reader can be used with terminals or PCs with various keyboard types and nationalities
through a simple keyboard setting procedure.
The type of computer or terminal must be selected before activating the keyboard setting
command.
Keyboard setting consists of communicating to the reader how to send data corresponding to
the keyboard used in the application. The keys must be set in a specific order.
Press and release a key to set it.
Some characters may require more than one key pressed simultaneously during normal use
(refer to the manual of your PC or terminal for keyboard use). The exact sequence must be
indicated to the reader in this case pressing and releasing the different keys.
Example:
If one has to press the "Shift" and "4" keys simultaneously on the keyboard to transmit the
character "$" to the video, to set the "$", press and release "Shift" then press and release "4".
Each pressed and released key must generate an acoustic signal on the reader, otherwise
repress the key. Never press more than one key at the same time, even if this corresponds to
the normal use of your keyboard.
Press "Backspace" to correct a wrong key entry. In this case the reader emits 2 beeps.
Note: "CAPS LOCK" and "NUM LOCK" must be off before starting the keyboard setting
procedure. "SHIFT" must be repressed for each character and cannot be substituted by
"CAPS LOCK".

press the keys shown in the following table according to their numerical order.
Some ASCII characters may be missing as this depends on the type of keyboard: these are
generally particular characters relative to the various national symbologies. In this case:
• The first 4 characters (Shift, Alt, Ctrl, and Backspace) can only be substituted with
keys not used, or substituted with each other.
• characters can be substituted with other single symbols (e.g. "SPACE") even if not
included in the barcode set used.
• characters can be substituted with others corresponding to your keyboard.
The reader signals the end of the procedure with 2 beeps indicating the keys have been
registered.

When working with Gryphon™ M series readers, the keyboard setup functioning is signaled by
the LEDs on the OM-Gryphon cradle. Each key stroke corresponds to a double blinking of the
green LED.
By pressing the Backspace key the red LED on the OM-Gryphon cradle blinks, while the green
LED stays on.
CAUTION
Do not place the reader onto the OM-Gryphon cradle during this procedure.
Otherwise, the battery charging will occur modifying the LEDs functioning.
Once the procedure has been completed, the green LED turns off.

4.1.2 ACK/NACK from Host Protocol
D-Series readers: This parameter sets a transmission protocol in which the Host
responds to the reader after every code transmitted. The Host sends an ACK
character (06 HEX) in the case of good reception or the NACK character (15 HEX)
requesting re-transmission, in the case of bad reception.

M-Series readers: The transmission protocol takes place between reader, cradle and
Host. The reader passes its data (code read) to the cradle which sends it to the
Host. The Host sends an ACK character (06 HEX) in the case of good reception or
the NACK character (15 HEX) requesting re-transmission, in the case of bad
reception. Only then does the cradle respond to the reader with the good read tone.

4.1.3 FIFO
Gryphon™ D Readers
This parameter determines whether data (barcodes) are buffered on a First In First
Out basis allowing faster data collection in certain cases for example when using
slow baud rates and/or hardware handshaking.
If the FIFO buffering is enabled, codes are collected and sent out on the serial line in
the order of acquisition. About 800 characters can be collected (buffer full), after
which the reader signals an error and discards any further codes until the
transmission is restored.
If the FIFO buffering is disabled, each code must be transmitted before another one
can be read.
Gryphon™ M Readers
This parameter is used to control radio reception from the guns to the cradle when
the Host uses either RTS/CTS or XON/XOFF Handshaking.
If enabled, this command blocks radio reception to the cradle when the Host has
interrupted RS232 data communication (CTS low or XOFF). The effect is that guns
cannot send data to the cradle until the Host resumes data communication (CTS
high or XON). This is similar to FIFO buffering disabled, where data can be collected
only when communication is possible. In any case, prior to interruption, data is
buffered in the cradle.
This command is only effective if handshaking is enabled. If used in a Multidrop
Network, it only works for the Master cradle.
If disabled, guns continue to send data to the cradle which buffers them even if data
communication has been interrupted by the Host (CTS low or XOFF). If the buffer
becomes full, the gun signals an error and any further data is discarded until
communication is restored. This is similar to FIFO enabled where data collection
continues even through communication is interrupted.

4.1.4 RX Timeout
When the RS232 interface is selected, the Host can be used to configure the device
by sending it command strings (see appendix A).
This parameter can be used to automatically end data reception from the Host after
the specified period of time.
If no character is received from the Host, after the timeout expires, any incomplete
string (any string not terminated by <CR>) is flushed from the device buffer.
4.2 PEN PARAMETERS
4.2.1 Minimum Output Pulse
This parameter sets the duration of the output pulse corresponding to the narrowest
element in the barcode. In this way the code resolution is controlled by the signal
sent to the decoder, independently of the physical resolution of the code read.
The shortest pulse (200 µs) corresponds to a high resolution code emulation and
therefore a shorter transfer speed to the decoder (for decoders able to work on high
resolution codes). Likewise, longer pulses correspond to low resolution code
emulation and therefore a longer transfer time to the decoder.
4.2.2 Conversion to Code 39 and Code 128
Gryphon™ D Series Readers
When using these readers it is possible to convert all codes to Code 39. By disabling
this option the decoded codes will be transmitted in their original format; except for
the following codes which are ALWAYS converted into Code 39 format:
Codablock-A, Codablock-F Standard and EAN, MSI, Plessey, Telepen, Delta IBM,
Code 11, Code 16K, Code 49, PDF417.
Gryphon™ M Series Readers
When using these readers it is possible to choose between converting the decoded
codes into either Code 39 format or Code 128 format. It is not possible to disable
conversion.

4.2.3 Overflow
This parameter generates a white space before the first bar and after the last bar of
the code. The selections are as follows:
narrow = space 10 times the minimum output pulse.
medium = space 20 times the minimum output pulse.
wide = space 30 times the minimum output pulse.

4.3 DATA FORMAT
4.3.1 Header/Terminator Selection
The header/terminator selection is not effected by the reading of the restore default
code. In fact, header and terminator default values depend on the interface
selection:
RS232: no header, terminator CR-LF
WEDGE: no header, terminator ENTER
These default values are always restored through the reading of RS232 or WEDGE

SET CUSTOM EXTENDED HEADER/TERMINATOR KEYS
The extended Header/Terminator keys for Wedge Interface users can be
customized by defining them through a simple keyboard setting procedure.
For example, the Numeric Keypad keys can be set for use as Headers or
Terminators by substituting the default extended keys using this procedure.
The type of computer or terminal must be selected before activating the keyboard
setting command.
Press and release a key to set it.
Some characters may require more than one key pressed simultaneously during
normal use (refer to the manual of your PC or terminal for keyboard use). The exact
sequence must be indicated to the reader in this case pressing and releasing the
different keys.
Example:
If one has to press the "Shift" and "4" keys simultaneously on the keyboard to
transmit the character "$" to the video, to set the "$", press and release "Shift" then
press and release "4".
Each pressed and released key must generate an acoustic signal on the reader,
otherwise repress the key. Never press more than one key at the same time, even if
this corresponds to the normal use of your keyboard.
Press "Back space" to correct a wrong key entry. In this case the reader emits
2 beeps.
Note: "CAPS LOCK" and "NUM LOCK" must be off before starting the
keyboard setting procedure. "SHIFT" must be repressed for each character
and cannot be substituted by "CAPS LOCK".

Gryphon™ M Series Only
When working with Gryphon™ M series readers, the keyboard setup functioning is signaled by
the LEDs on the OM-Gryphon cradle. Each key stroke corresponds to a double blinking of the
green LED.
By pressing the Backspace key the red LED on the OM-Gryphon cradle blinks, while the green
LED stays on.
CAUTION
Do not place the reader onto the OM-Gryphon cradle during this procedure.
Otherwise, the battery charging will occur modifying the LEDs functioning.
Once the procedure has been completed, the green LED turns off.

4.4 POWER SAVE
4.4.1 Sleep State
This mode allows the µP in the reader to enter a “Sleep” state for minimum power
consumption. For D-series readers, this command is only valid when hardware
trigger type is selected.
Before entering Sleep mode, the following are verified:
• no commands coming from Host
• no data being transmitted to Host
• Enter Sleep Timeout ended (see par. 4.4.2)
To exit Sleep mode press the trigger.
Enabling the Sleep state implements Standby mode for CCD devices, see par. 4.4.3.
For M-series readers, sleep state is entered immediately after reading a code and is
not configurable. To exit Sleep mode press the trigger.
4.4.2 Enter Sleep Timeout
For readers that have the Sleep state enabled, this timeout determines when the
reader will enter this state.
4.4.3 Standby
If this command is enabled, part of the CCD circuitry shuts down (Standby), in order
to optimize low power consumption when not reading. When the trigger is pressed
this circuitry powers up. This mode causes a minor delay of about 100 ms before the
reader is ready.
For M-series readers, standby is always enabled and is not configurable. To exit
Standby press the trigger.

4.5 READING PARAMETERS
4.5.1 Operating Mode
This group of parameters allows setting different reading modes for either Hand-Held
operation or Stand operation:
• SoftwareTrigger: the reader is set in FLASH MODE. Code reading takes place
during the flash on time;
• Hardware Trigger: the code reading is started with a trigger press (ON);
• Hardware Trigger Ready: the illuminator is switched ON when the reader sees a
code. It functions as a pointer aiming at the code to be read. The reading phase
starts only when the trigger is pressed. In this mode the reader is automatically
set to trigger active level and one read per cycle parameters. (Only for Hand-
held operation).
• Automatic: The illuminator is switched ON when the reader sees a code. The
reading phase starts automatically.
• Always ON: the illuminator is always ON and the reader always ready for code
reading. This value is not available for M-series readers.
4.5.2 Hardware Trigger Mode
This mode determines how the reading phase is controlled when the hardware
trigger operating mode is selected:
• trigger active level: the reader goes ON when the trigger is pressed and goes
OFF when it is released
• trigger active pulse: the reader goes ON at the first trigger press and goes OFF
only at a second press
4.5.3 Trigger-Off Timeout
When this timeout is selected, the reader turns OFF automatically after the desired
period of time.
GRYPHON™
114
4
4.5.4 Reads per Cycle
In general, a reading cycle corresponds to the ON + OFF times of a device.
The resulting effects of this parameter on code reading depend on other related
configuration conditions. Here are the definitions of ON and OFF times.
• For readers using the software trigger parameter (FLASH MODE), a reading
cycle corresponds to the flash on + flash off times. Code reading takes place
during the flash on time.
• For readers using the hardware trigger parameter, a reading cycle corresponds
to a trigger press (ON) + one of the following OFF events:
trigger release (for trigger active level)
a second trigger press (for trigger active pulse)
trigger-off timeout (see par. 4.5.3).
When one read per cycle is selected, the device decodes only one code during the
ON period and immediately turns the reader OFF. It is only possible to read another
code when the next ON time occurs.
In multiple reads per cycle, the ON period is extended so that the device can
continue decoding codes until an OFF event occurs. For software trigger mode, the
flash on period is immediately reset after each read and therefore extended. If
another code is decoded before the reset flash on period expires, it is again reset
and the effect is that the device remains ON, decoding codes until the flash on or
timeout period expires.
The Safety Time parameter should be used in this case to avoid unwanted multiple
reading of the same code, see par. 4.5.5.
4.5.5 Safety Time
Safety time prevents the device from immediately decoding the same code more
than once. Same code consecutive reading can be disabled requiring the reader to
be removed from the code (no decoding) for at least 400 ms, or a timeout can be set
up to 9.9 seconds before the decoder will accept the same code. Reading is
immediate if the code changes.

4.6 DECODING PARAMETERS
CAUTION
These parameters are intended to enhance the decoding capability
of the reader for particular applications. Used incorrectly, they can
degrade the reading performance or increase the possibility of a
decoding error.
4.6.1 Ink-Spread
The ink-spread parameter allows the decoding of codes which are not perfectly
printed because the page texture tends to absorb the ink.
4.6.2 Overflow Control
The overflow control parameter can be disabled when decoding codes printed on
small surfaces, which don’t allow the use of an overflow space.
This command does not effect code families 2/5, Code 128 and Code 93.
This command is forced (enabled) when PDF417 codes are enabled.
4.6.3 Interdigit Control
The interdigit control parameter verifies the interdigit spacing for code families Code
39 and Codabar.
GRYPHON™
116
4
4.7 RADIO PARAMETERS (M SERIES ONLY)
4.7.1 Radio Protocol Timeout
This parameter sets the valid time to wait before transmission between the M series
reader and OM-Gryphon cradle is considered failed.
This parameter should be set taking into consideration the radio traffic (number of
readers in the same area).
If the RS232 interface is used with ACK/NACK enabled, this parameter should be at
least equal to the Rx Timeout parameter for low traffic environments. It should be
increased if there are many readers in the same area.
It can be set between 2 and 19 seconds.
4.7.2 Power-Off Timeout
If this command is enabled, after the desired timeout in hours, the Gryphon™
batteries are disconnected and all power consumption ceases. To restore power,
press the trigger once. The reader will now be ready to read codes.
Power-off does not effect configuration parameters.
4.7.3 Beeper Control for Radio Response
For M-Series readers, the data entry good read tone normally results in two beeps;
the first indicates that the reader has decoded the code, the second indicates
whether OM-Gryphon has received the data.
This can be changed according to the following selections:
♦ Normal: both good decode and good reception are signaled (two beeps).
♦ Only Good Decode: only the first beep indicating a good read is signaled.
♦ Only Good Reception: only the second beep indicating a good reception is
signaled.
♦ Off: Neither good read nor good reception beeps are signaled.
For all configurations, any transmission errors will always be signaled.

4.7.4 Single Store
When single store mode is enabled, if the Gryphon™ M fails to transmit a code to
the cradle, it enters a special operating mode that prevents the user from reading
barcodes. When such operating mode is entered, the trigger no longer enables
barcode reading but is used to retry transmission itself for the number of attempts
selected in configuration. Once the transmission is successful the reader returns to
the standard mode. If transmission is not successful after the number of configured
attempts, single store is disabled.
Single store may be useful if you often read codes at the limit of the coverage area
and there is a chance that code transmission can fail. In such case single store
allows you to move to a more favorable position or location (i.e. closer to the cradle)
and retry transmission without the necessity of re-reading the code since it is already
stored in the reader.
Conversely, if single store is disabled, and the user wants to retry transmission, the
code must be read again, and therefore the attempt must be made from basically the
same location. If the user gives up, he does not know if the transaction was
successful. (Actually the transmission could have been successful but the cradle
may have been unable to acknowledge the message). There are applications in
which there is no risk of transmission failure. In such cases it may be better to
disable single store so that the user perceives a more consistent behaviour of the
trigger in that it always corresponds to code reading.
4.7.5 Address Stamping
It is possible to include the cradle address in the message sent to the host. The
cradle Address Stamping parameters consist of a 4-digit number in the range 0000-
1999.
4.7.6 Address Delimiter
The Address Delimiters allow a character to be included to separate the Cradle
Address stamping fields from the next fields in the message. Any character can be
included in the hexadecimal range from 00 to FE.

APPENDIX A HOST CONFIGURATION STRINGS
In this section we provide a description of how to modify the device configuration
using serial strings sent from the Host.
This method requires the RS232 interface.
The device configuration can be changed by receiving commands from the Host
through the serial interface. When this method is used, the programming sequence
format is the following:
Command
Character sequence in following tables
CR $- $+
Carriage return character (0D Hex.)
Enter configuration environment
Exit and Save configuration
Example:
Beeper tone 1
Beeper low intensity
BG1 $- CR
Carriage return character (0D Hex.)
Exit and save new configuration
AC410132 BH0
Matrix 2/5 3 bars: no check digit,
variable length code from 1 to 32 characters
$+
Enter configuration environment
Multiple command programming sequence:
Each configuration parameter setting removes the condition previously active for that
parameter.
NOTE
The device buffer can contain about 400 characters. If your
programming string goes over this value, you must split it into
separate groups and send each group after a delay of at least 3
seconds to give the reader time to empty the buffer and interpret the
commands.

The reader passes its data (code read) to the cradle which sends it to the Host. transmission is ended after the RX Timeout (see par. in the case of bad reception.1. The Host sends an ACK character (06 HEX) in the case of good reception or the NACK character (15 HEX) requesting re-transmission. in the case of bad reception.REFERENCES 4 4.

If disabled. the gun signals an error and any further data is discarded until communication is restored. If used in a Multidrop Network. If the buffer becomes full. after which the reader signals an error and discards any further codes until the transmission is restored.3 FIFO Gryphon™ D Readers This parameter determines whether data (barcodes) are buffered on a First In First Out basis allowing faster data collection in certain cases for example when using slow baud rates and/or hardware handshaking. it only works for the Master cradle. where data can be collected only when communication is possible. Gryphon™ M Readers This parameter is used to control radio reception from the guns to the cradle when the Host uses either RTS/CTS or XON/XOFF Handshaking. This command is only effective if handshaking is enabled. codes are collected and sent out on the serial line in the order of acquisition. If enabled. this command blocks radio reception to the cradle when the Host has interrupted RS232 data communication (CTS low or XOFF). each code must be transmitted before another one can be read.1. This is similar to FIFO buffering disabled.4 GRYPHON™ 4. 106 . In any case. data is buffered in the cradle. The effect is that guns cannot send data to the cradle until the Host resumes data communication (CTS high or XON). prior to interruption. If the FIFO buffering is enabled. guns continue to send data to the cradle which buffers them even if data communication has been interrupted by the Host (CTS low or XOFF). About 800 characters can be collected (buffer full). This is similar to FIFO enabled where data collection continues even through communication is interrupted. If the FIFO buffering is disabled.

By disabling this option the decoded codes will be transmitted in their original format. Code 16K. This parameter can be used to automatically end data reception from the Host after the specified period of time. longer pulses correspond to low resolution code emulation and therefore a longer transfer time to the decoder.4 RX Timeout When the RS232 interface is selected. PDF417. any incomplete string (any string not terminated by <CR>) is flushed from the device buffer. the Host can be used to configure the device by sending it command strings (see appendix A).2 Conversion to Code 39 and Code 128 Gryphon™ D Series Readers When using these readers it is possible to convert all codes to Code 39. If no character is received from the Host. Gryphon™ M Series Readers When using these readers it is possible to choose between converting the decoded codes into either Code 39 format or Code 128 format.2. In this way the code resolution is controlled by the signal sent to the decoder. Codablock-F Standard and EAN. Delta IBM.2. Code 49.

In such cases it may be better to disable single store so that the user perceives a more consistent behaviour of the trigger in that it always corresponds to code reading. Single store may be useful if you often read codes at the limit of the coverage area and there is a chance that code transmission can fail. he does not know if the transaction was successful. if the Gryphon™ M fails to transmit a code to the cradle. if single store is disabled.6 Address Delimiter The Address Delimiters allow a character to be included to separate the Cradle Address stamping fields from the next fields in the message. single store is disabled. 4. When such operating mode is entered. There are applications in which there is no risk of transmission failure. it enters a special operating mode that prevents the user from reading barcodes. Any character can be included in the hexadecimal range from 00 to FE. Once the transmission is successful the reader returns to the standard mode. If the user gives up. and the user wants to retry transmission. and therefore the attempt must be made from basically the same location. the code must be read again. Conversely.
