Connect the GT10 to the BA10.

  1.  1.Read the bar code printed on the back of the BA10 with the GT10 to connect the GT10 to the BA10 via the Bluetooth wireless link.

     After the GT10 read the bar code on the BA10, the GT10 (master unit) begins to connect to the BA10.
     On completion of the connection, the GT10 beeps twice and the LED green lights up for 0.5 sec. At this time, the LED blue lights up in the BA10.

Preparation for processing the data read by GT10

Convert the data received from the RS-232C interface port to keyboard input data for processing the data read by GT10.

  1.  1.Download the QR_kbif and install it on your PC.
  2.  2.Start the QR_kbif.
    When the Com Port Setting window appears, select the COM port number to which the BA10 is connected and other communication settings.
  3.  3.Open some application, for example, the Windows' Memo and then read any bar code with the GT10. The read data is displayed on the application program's screen.

As an alternative, you can create application programs that receive serial communications data without the QR_kbif.
