The SUNMAX-2000 has a 4 x 20 LCD display and a 35-key
alpha-numeric keypad, which allows for a fully menu-driven
operation. The Main Menu is comprised of six Menus:
In this menu, you may create up to 4 programs for data
collection and/or storing data file. Each program can have
up to 24 statements or prompt texts.
This menu allows you to collect, review, and modify the data
by using specified criteria set in the programs you created.
After data is collected, this menu is used to upload the data
to your computer.
SET UP MENU:
In this menu, your data collection environment is defined.
For example, the type of bar code symbology and computer interface
are set up here.
When using the EasyGen program generator to configure
and program, this menu allows you to download the information
from your PC to the SUNMAX-2000.
This menu allows you to use the SUNMAX-2000 as a fixed reader
for applications that require stationary scanning.
EASY TO CONFIGURE AND PROGRAM:
There are two methods of configuring and programming the SUNMAX-2000.
The first method uses the keypad to operate the reader's menu-driven
setup utility for easy configuration, and the built-in program
generator to generate up to four programs. The second method
uses an optional program generator EasyGen, which allows the
configuration and programs to be downloaded from the PC to
UPLOAD THE DATA DIRECTLY TO YOUR APPLICATION OR A DATA
The method used to upload data to your computer's application
is a very important factor in determining a data collector's
ease of use. With its uniquely designed upload method,
the SUNMAX-2000 allows control codes and delays to be inserted
into your collected data's sequence, so as to match the input
sequence of your application. Using this method allows the
data to be uploaded directly to your application via the keyboard
or USB port (a Keyboard to USB adapter is required).
Or, using the COM2000 utility allows the collected data to
be uploaded to an ASCII data file.
DOWNLOAD DATA FILES TO THE SUNMAX-2000:
Up to four ASCII data files can be downloaded to the SUNMAX-2000
from your computer via the RS-232 port. Then, you may
use the data files to perform the data verification, table
look up, pick list, and even simple data base application.
VERSATILE INPUT DEVICE:
SUNMAX-2000 can auto-discriminate between all the popular
bar code symbologies such as: Code 39, UPC/EAN, Codabar, Interleaved
2 of 5, MSI/Plessy and Code 128. It supports all types of
input devices: Wand, CCD, Laser scanner, Magstripe scanner,
and the device w/ RS-232 output.
SUNMAX-2000 supports most of the portable printers to generate
labels, tickets or receipts. You may configure the printer
control command by using EasyGen.
You may also attach an external MODEM to the SUNMAX-2000 and
upload the data via the telephone line.
MULTIPLE POWER SOURCE:
The SUNMAX-2000 can be operated with 3 AA batteries for portable
operation, or with an external power adapter when used as
a fixed reader.
LONG BATTERY LIFE:
3 AA Alkaline batteries can give you approximately 70,000
scans with the PSC-6000 laser scanner. That's nearly 20 hours
of continuous use. In addition, a lithium battery will
maintain data and programs for years.
program generator, you may define up to 4 variables.
There are three ways to define a variable: (1) define as a
constant, (2) store the input data in a variable; and (3)
get an item from a data file and store it in a variable. And
you may program the SUNMAX-2000 to perform calculations and
comparison on these variables. You may also design your own
Menus to replace the Main, Collect or Upload Menus.
