This application note provides basic setup information for using the Star Micronics 1D/2D Barcode
- To power on the Scanner, simply pull the trigger once.
- In rare cases the scanner could have been put into "battery off mode" or "storage mode". If pulling the trigger once does not wake the scanner, press and hold the trigger for about 6-7 seconds or connect the USB cable.
- The scanner will beep when it is powered ON.
- It may need to be charged for a few hours before initial use.
- It can be charged via USB and operated at the same time.
- You have two options for connecting the scanner to your device:
- Option 1 (default) - Plug-in included USB receiver to your device
- Options 2 - Pair via Bluetooth. See the steps below for entering your scanner into Bluetooth pairing mode.
The BSH-HR2081BT is a handheld Bluetooth 1D/2D imager scanner that operates by capturing the barcode as an image and using UIMG technology for description and interpretation which allows it to scan effectively regardless of the barcode being up strait, sideways or upside down, and can read barcodes on paper/labels, plastic cards, LCD and other kinds of mediums of printing and displaying.

3. Scanning Preference
Normal Mode: Select this mode when reading barcodes on paper.
Screen mode: Select this mode when reading barcodes on the screen.
Barcode Pay mode: Select this mode when reading the payment barcode.
4. Connecting the Scanner to a Host Device.
The scanner must be connected to your host device such as a PC, POS or any intelligent terminal using its Bluetooth USB Dongle. Once the dongle is plugged into the host device, the scanner connects to it and is able to transmit its data.
5. Power On, Power Off, Reboot.
- Power on the Scanner. Press and hold trigger for about 6-7 seconds or connect the USB cable. The scanner will beep when it is powered ON.
- Power off the Scanner. Scan the barcode below to power off the printer
6. Scanning Instructions.
When the scanner is in the Sense scan mode, you can follow the steps below to scan a barcode.
- Present the barcode on a mobile phone screen or paper to the center of the scan window.
- For a successful read, the scanner will send the data to the host with its Good Read LED flashing once.
7. Scan Modes.
Level Mode: In this mode a trigger pull will activate the decode session. The decode session continues until a barcode is decoded or you release the trigger.
Trigger Mode: A trigger pull activates a decode session. The decode session continues until a barcode is decoded, either you release the trigger or the decode session times out.
Sense Mode: The scanner waits for the image stabilization timeout to expire before activating a decode session every time it detects a change in ambient illumination. Decode session continues until a barcode is decoded or the decode session timeout expires. In this mode, a trigger pull can also activate a decode session. The decode session continues until a barcode is decoded or the trigger is released. When the session ends, the scanner continues to monitor ambient illumination. Timeout between Decodes (Same Barcode) can avoid undesired rereading of same barcode in a given period of time. Sensitivity can change the Sense Mode’s sensibility to changes in ambient illumination
Continuous Mode: The scanner automatically starts on decode session after another. To suspend/resume barcode reading, simply press the trigger. Timeout between Decodes (Same Barcode) can avoid undesired re-reading of same barcode in a given period of time.
Pulse Mode: When the trigger is pulled and released, scanning is activated until a barcode is decoded or the decode session timeout expires (The decode session timeout begins when the trigger is released).
Batch Mode: When the trigger is pulled and released, scanning is activated until the trigger is released. While pulling the trigger, good read barcodes will beep and output barcode information. As long as the trigger is unreleased, it will continue decoding. While pulling the trigger, the same barcode can only be read once.
8. Maintenance Instructions.
- The scan window should be kept clean.
- Do not scratch the scan window.
- Use a soft brush to remove dust from the scan window.
- Use a soft cloth such as an eyeglass cleaning cloth to clean the window.
- Do not spray any liquid directly onto the scan window.
- The below liquids can be used to sanitize and clean the scanner
- 3% Hydrogen Peroxide and 97% Water solution
- 91% Isopropyl Alcohol and 9% Water Solution
- Metrex CaviCide
- 75% Alcohol
- Clinell Universal Sanitizing Wipes
- Sani-Hands instant Hand Sanitizing Wipes
- PDI Sani-Cloth AK3 Germicidal Disposable Wipe
- 10% Bleach (“Sodium Hypochlorite 0.55%) and 90% Water Solution (do not apply it to the label of the scanner)
- Do not apply any liquid in the USB port
9. Bluetooth Pairing (Optional)
Scanning the following three barcodes will bypass the USB receiver and you can then connect your Barcode scanner to your device via Bluetooth. This may be preferable if you want to are in need of an extra USB port OR if you are using a device that does not have a USB port (i.e. iPad, iPhone).
Bluetooth Pairing Mode
The LED should flash blue indicating it is in pairing mode. You should now pair the barcode scanner to your iPhone/Mac/PC/iPad. Once paired the Bluetooth setup is complete.
If the blue LED is NOT flashing blue or your device is not finding your barcode scanner you may need to reset the Bluetooth pairing. To do this, scan the two barcodes below to reset pairing:
If you are still having trouble pairing the barcode scanner to your Bluetooth device proceed to step 10. below. Once the factory default is complete, start step 9. over from the beginning.
10. Factory Default
Scanning the following barcodes can restore the scanner to the factory defaults. You may need to reset all parameters to the factory default when:
- Scanner is not properly configured so it fails to decode barcodes.
- You forget previous configuration and want to avoid its impact.
- You want to remove Bluetooth Pairing Mode and revert back to wireless USB connection
