Presentation Mode uses ambient light and scanner illumination to detect bar codes. When in Presentation Mode, the LEDs
remain dim until a bar code is presented to the scanner, then the aimer turns on and the LEDs turn up to read the code. If the
light level in the room is not high enough, Presentation Mode may not work properly
Note: If you are using a cordless charge base in Presentation Mode, the battery will not charge unless the power supply is
plugged into the base’s auxiliary power port.
Scan the following bar code to program your scanner for Presentation Mode.
Presentation LED Behavior after Decode
When a scanner is in presentation mode, the LEDs dim 30 seconds after a bar code is decoded. If you wish to dim the
LEDs immediately after a bar code is decoded, scan the LEDs Off bar code, below. Default = LEDs On.
Presentation Sensitivity is a numeric range that increases or decreases the scanner's reaction time to bar code presenta-
tion. To set the sensitivity, scan the Sensitivity bar code, then scan the degree of sensitivity (from 0-20) from the inside
back cover, and Save. 0 is the most sensitive setting, and 20 is the least sensitive. Default = 1.
Note: Granit 1980i and 1981i do not support this setting.
Use Presentation Centering to narrow the scanner’s field of view when it is in the stand to make sure the scanner reads
only those bar codes intended by the user. For instance, if multiple codes are placed closely together, Presentation Center-
ing will insure that only the desired codes are read.
Note: To adjust centering when the scanner is hand-held, see Centering(page 4-15).
If a bar code is not touched by a predefined window, it will not be decoded or output by the scanner. If Presentation Center-
ing is turned on by scanning Presentation Centering On, the scanner only reads codes that pass through the centering
window you specify using the Top of Presentation Centering Window, Bottom of Presentation Centering Window,
Left, and Right of Presentation Centering Window bar codes.
In the example below, the white box is the centering window. The centering window has been set to 20% left, 30% right,
8% top, and 25% bottom. Since Bar Code 1 passes through the centering window, it will be read. Bar Code 2 does not
pass through the centering window, so it will not be read.
