Intermec Device Registration Services (IDRS) is an integral part
of Intermec Management Services. To use IDRS, you must have an IDRS
server (DCS 3XX) in your data collection network and your devices
must be IDRS-enabled. As each device turns on, it automatically
registers with the IDRS server. The IDRS server stores the devices's
logical name and major attributes in a database. Intermec Management
Services software accesses this database to get a complete picture
of your data collection network, even when the device turns off.
IEEE 802.11 standard
The IEEE 802.X standards are a set of specifications for local area
networks (LAN) from The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers
(IEEE). Most wired networks conform to 802.3, the specification
for CSMA/CD-based Ethernet networks. The 802.11 committee completed
a standard for 1 and 2 Mbps wireless LANs in 1997 that has a single
MAC layer for the following physical-layer technologies: Frequency
Hopping Spread Spectrum, Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum, and Infrared.
IEEE 802.11 HR, is an 11 Mbps version of the standard which was
completed at the end of 1999.
A portion of an image, in the shape of a strip of the image. A certain
number of image bands are stored in memory before printing begins.
This method allows printing and imaging to take place simultaneously.
An image file contains all the files you want to load onto the reader's
drive C. Because drive C is a ROM drive that is implemented in flash
memory, you can use DOS commands to read from drive C, but you must
use special utilities to write to drive C.
The process of generating a picture of the label in printer memory.
Part of the 7350 Wide Area Bar Code Scanner. The imaging processor
decodes all the scanned information and provides an image of each
scanned bar code.
Bar code or text fields the printer automatically changes from one
label to the next. For example, a batch of labels with serial number
text or bar code fields that change from 001, to 002, to 003, and
To move from the start of the label to the start of print. With
continuous media, to advance the media over the label gap to the
edge of the next label.
A wand or laser scanner or other device that scans bar code information
into the terminal or reader.
(I/O) PC card
A type of PC card, such as a modem card, that can be used to connect
the reader to another device for communications. I/O cards comply
with PCMCIA Standard 2.1.
A Reader Services program that you use as an interface for all data
input and output from the reader's COM ports, wand, scanner, and
keypad. The Input Manager handles all power management tasks during
data input and output.
A computer session that provides immediate feedback to input. Two-way
communications between two devices.
A menu-driven application that lets you view the reader's current
configuration, modify parameters, create configuration files, and
configure the reader with any configuration file.
Amount of time between transmitting successive characters.
The space between the last element of one character and the first
element of the adjacent character of a discrete bar code symbol.
An object in Conman that identifies and describes one of the following
types of physical entities: file, database, application, and screen
mapping. A unique name identifies each interface type.
A situation that occurs when an unwanted RF signal occupies the
same frequency band as a desired signal.
of 5 Code
A bar code developed by Intermec for Computer Identics that encodes
the ten digits 0 through 9. The name Interleaved 2 of 5 is derived
from the method used to encode two characters. In this symbol, two
characters are paired, using bars to represent the first character
and the interleaved spaces to represent the second character. Each
character has two wide elements and three narrow elements, for a
total of five elements. The specification for this bar code is set
forth in MHI/AIR USD 1. It can achieve a maximum density of 7.8
characters per inch.
A bar code in which characters are paired together using bars to
represent the first character and spaces to represent the second.
For example, USS-I 2/5. See also continuous code.
A DOS communications program on the reader that you use to access
the drives on a host as if they were on the reader, and vice versa.
A switch embedded in the reader's case that locks the battery into
place. The interlock switch is engaged when the battery pack locks
are closed. If the interlock switch is not engaged, the reader will
A text field that describes the data in the associated bar code
A companion application to Interlnk that runs on the computer that
acts as the server while Interlnk runs on the computer that is the
1. Internet protocol. This protocol provides a method for transmitting
blocks of data (IP datagrams) between hosts. 2. For the Model 200
Controller, this is the protocol for the network layer in the TCP/IP
protocol. It acts as a router for frames and is also responsible
for frame addressing. It verifies it has all the frames to pass
to the TCP layer and that they are in the correct order.
An internal TCP/IP protocol stack variable. This address is a network
level address assigned to each device in a TCP/IP network.
Inches per second. A measurement of print speed that measures the
number of inches of media that is printed each second.
1. Internet packet exchange protocol. This protocol provides a means
for message packets to be exchanged on an internetwork. 2. For the
Model 200 Controller, this is the protocol for the Network layer
in SPX/IPX protocol. It provides a way for packets to be exchanged
on a network. It acts as a router for messages to other computers,
it directs incoming data to the correct local process, and is also
in charge of addressing.
Interactive reader language. A high level programming language developed
by Intermec for their bar code readers.
The IRL operating environment on the JANUS reader is called the
IRL Desktop. This application lets you use the reader to transmit,
receive, and clear data files, and to download and run IRL programs.
Interrupt request. Hardware lines over which devices such as the
reader's input/output ports, the keypad, and disk drivers can send
request-attention signals (commonly called "interrupts").
IRQs suspend current operations, save current work, and transfer
control to a routine called an interrupt handler, which causes a
specific set of instructions to be carried out by the computer's
Industry standard architecture. Computer circuit board design that
allows various adapters to be added to the system by means of inserting
plug-in cards into expansion slots.
International Organization for Standardization. An internationally
accepted 7-bit character code. (The U.S. version is ASCII.)
Jumper pin. A prong used as a jumper contact to PCBs or cards. See
A short length of conductor used to make a connection between two
points or terminals in a circuit or to provide a path around a break
in a circuit.
A box used for connecting height sensor cables to the imaging processor.
