Title
(EN) ADVISORY ALARM FOR RETURNING CORDLESS ELECTRO-OPTICAL READER TO BASE STATION OF POINT-OF-TRANSACTION CHECKOUT SYSTEM
(FR) ALARME D'AVERTISSEMENT D'UNE REMISE EN PLACE D'UN LECTEUR ÉLECTRO-OPTIQUE SANS FIL DANS UNE STATION DE BASE D'UN SYSTÈME DE CONTRÔLE DE POINT DE TRANSACTION
Abstract
(EN)
A cordless reader electro-optically reads indicia on products to be processed in a checkout system in a handheld mode. A base station has a compartment in which the cordless reader is mounted in a hands-free mode. A transceiver communicates data between the cordless reader and the base station. A controller controls operation of the cordless reader and the base station, and also determines the mode of the cordless reader. An alarm generates an advisory alert to advise a return of the cordless reader to the compartment when the controller determines that the cordless reader is in the handheld mode and the cordless reader or the base station does not satisfy an operational condition.
(FR)
Un lecteur sans fil lit selon un procédé électro-optique des informations sur des produits devant être traitées dans un système de contrôle en mode portatif. Une station de base comporte un compartiment dans lequel le lecteur sans fil est monté en mode mains libres. Un émetteur-récepteur communique des données entre le lecteur sans fil et la station de base. Un dispositif de commande régit le fonctionnement du lecteur sans fil et de la station de base et détermine également le mode du lecteur sans fil. Une alarme génère une alerte d'avertissement de façon à avertir d'une remise en place du lecteur sans fil dans le compartiment quand le dispositif de commande détermine que le lecteur sans fil est en mode portatif et que le lecteur sans fil ou la station de base ne remplit pas une condition de fonctionnement.
