Unformatted text preview: MFET 374, Manufacturing Integration I 4/15/10 Configuring Allen-Bradley’s Bar Code Decoder page 1 of 33 MFET 374 Manufacturing Integration I Configuring Allen-Bradley’s Bar Code Decoder Overview This document explains how to configure Allen-Bradley’s bar code decoder (part number: 2755-DD1A- B2-R1). The bar code decoder must be configured before it can be used to collect bar code data. The decoder can be configured by connecting a dumb terminal to the decoders auxiliary (AUX) port. In this class, the communications program called HyperTerminal will be used to turn the dropline computer into a dumb terminal. Before the bar code decoder can be configured, HyperTerminal must be configured as described below. For more general information about Allen-Bradley’s bar code decoder refer to the document entitled “Introduction to Allen-Bradley’s Bar Code Reader.” In addition, the following Allen-Bradley manual describes the decoder in detail: “2755-DS/DD user manual” (Publication 2755-833-July 1994). Hardware Requirements Implementation of the procedures described in this document require the following hardware: • Allen-Bradley Bulletin 2755-DD or 2755-DS enhanced bar code decoder. • Personal Computer (PC) with terminal emulator software. • Appropriate RS-232 cable connected from COM1 of the a drop line computer to the auxiliary (AUX) port of the bar code decoder. Software Requirements Implementation of the procedures described in this document require the following software: • HyperTerminal terminal emulation software Configuring HyperTerminal This section explains how to configure the terminal emulation program called HyperTerminal. HyperTerminal will enable the dropline computer to emulate a dumb terminal. After HyperTerminal is properly configured, the dropline computer (running HyperTerminal) can be used to configure Allen- Bradley’s bar code decoder. MFET 374, Manufacturing Integration I 4/15/10 Configuring Allen-Bradley’s Bar Code Decoder page 2 of 33 Proceed as follows : Connect COM1 (this document assumes you are using COM1, but any of the dropline computers RS-232 serial ports will work) of the dropline computer to the decoders auxiliary (AUX) port using the proper RS-232 cable. Since the bar code decoders auxiliary port acts like a DCE, you can use a modem cable. This cable consists of a DB9 female and a DB25 male. The modem cable is typically used to connect a DTE (with a 9 pin connector) to a DCE (with a 25 pin connector). Start up the HyperTerminal program from the Windows Start menu as follows: Start Programs Accessories Communications HyperTerminal The following initial screen will appear: Figure 1 – Initial HyperTerminal Screen MFET 374, Manufacturing Integration I 4/15/10 Configuring Allen-Bradley’s Bar Code Decoder page 3 of 33 As shown below, enter a name for your connection and select an icon from the list of available icons: Figure 2 – Naming The Connection Click the OK button.
