The MS9500 Voyager has 3 modes of programming.
¾ Bar Codes
Voyager or Voyager CG can be configured by scanning the bar codes
located in the MetroSelect® Single-Line Programming Guide (MLPN 00-
02544). Please refer to this guide for instructions. This manual can be
downloaded for FREE from Metrologic’s website (www.metrologic.com).
This user-friendly Windows-based configuration program allows you to
simply ‘point-and-click’ at the desired scanner options. This program can be
downloaded for FREE from Metrologic’ website (www.metrologic.com), or
set-up disks can be ordered by calling 1-800-ID-METRO.
¾ Serial Programming
This mode of programming is ideal for OEM applications. This mode gives
the end-user the ability to send a series of commands using the serial port of
the host system. The commands are equivalent to the numerical values of
the bar codes located in the MetroSelect Single-Line Programming Guide
How does Serial Programming work?
1. Each command sent to the scanner is the ASCII representation of each
numeral in the configuration bar code. The entire numeric string is framed
with an ASCII [stx] and an ASCII [etx].

Command = [stx]100104[etx]
String Sent to Scanner = 02h 31h 30h 30h 31h 30h 34h 03h
(All values are hexadecimal).
2. If the command sent to the scanner is valid, the scanner will respond with an
3. If the command sent to the scanner in invalid, the scanner will respond with
NOTE: If this occurs, the end-user must start over at the very beginning of
the configuration sequence. Re-transmitting the invalid command
will not work, the user must start over.
