Chapter 6 RS-232 Interface
This chapter describes how to set up the digital scanner with an RS-232 host. Use the RS-232 interface to connect

NOTE The digital scanner uses TTL RS-232 signal levels, which interface with most system architectures. For
system architectures requiring RS-232C signal levels, Motorola offers different cables providing
TTL-to-RS-232C conversion. Contact Motorola Solutions Support for more information.
