This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio frequencies. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference, in which case the user will be required to correct the interference at his own expense.

Pacemakers, Hearing Aids and Other Electrically Powered Devices

Most manufacturers of medical devices adhere to the IEC 601-1-2 standard. This standard requires devices to operate properly in an EM Field with a strength of 3V/m over a frequency range of 26 to 1000MHz.

The maximum allowable field strength emitted by Image Kiosks is 0.3V/m according to Subpart B of Part 1 of the FCC rules. Therefore, the Image Kiosks RF has no effect on medical devices that meet the IEC specification.

Microwaves

The radio in the RF Image Kiosks operates on the same frequency band as a microwave oven. Therefore, if you use a microwave within range of the RF Image Kiosks you may notice performance degradation in your wireless network. However, both your microwave and your wireless network will continue to function.

Bath Image Kiosks do not contain a radio, and therefore, is not affected by microwave ovens.

For European Community Users

Hand Held Products complies with Directive 2002/69/EC OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 27 January 2003 on waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).

Connectors

USB Host Port DB15 Connector RJ45 Jack

USB Host Port

The USB Host port features a 5V DC power pass-through and can host supported USB client devices. Multiple USB devices can be accommodated by plugging a USB HUB into the USB Host port. This is a four-pin connector and supports USB 1.1 communication. USB 2.0 devices that are backwards compatible with USB 1.1 may be connected to this port but will operate at USB 1.1 speeds.

For more information, see USB Host Port on page 4-10.

DB15 Connector

This is a single 15-pin, D-style, high-density female connector. All power cables have a connector that matches this pin configuration. This connector powers the device (by receiving power from the cable) and communicates with a host workstation using ActiveSync (USB only).

For more information, see Microsoft ActiveSync on page 4-2.

RJ45 Jack

IK8560EE, IK8570E, & IK8570EUE—A 100Base-TX/10Base-T communications port that supports wired ethernet communication with a standard RJ45 ethernet cable. Cable must be purchased separately. You cannot power the device through the ethernet cable. For more information, see Wired Ethernet Communication—IK8560EE, IK8570E, & IK8570EUE on page 4-8.

IK8560CE & IK8560CEUE—The RJ45 Jack on these models is not functional. Only the IK8560EE, IK8570E, and IK8570EUE contain the functional ethernet controller that allows for ethernet communication.

Connecting the Power and Communication Cables

The Image Kiosks have standard power cables that connect to a number of communication cables to suit your environment.

Standard Power Cable

The standard power cable powers the device and with an AC power adapter to convert the voltage from the power source to the voltage required by the device. Image Kiosks must be connected to external power to run.

Communication Cables

The Image Kiosks offer the following communication options:

USB Cable (four feet)

Standard RS-232 Cable (12 feet)

RS-232 Pass-Through (Y cable)

Note: You can verify the status of the USB communication cable by the icon in the task tray; see Task Tray Icons on page 2-2.

USB Cable

The USB communication cable (p/n 42206398-01E) supports USB 1.1. You can connect USB 2.0 devices that are backwards compatible with USB 1.1 with this cable but data transfer will occur 1.1 speeds.

This cable features a single, 15-pin male connector that plugs into the DB15-pin female port on the back panel. The other end features a standard Type A USB (1.1 or higher) connector designed to fit standard USB ports.

Note: Make sure the power switch is turned off on the computer where you will be installing the Image Kiosk.

Rebooting the Device

There are three types of reboots: a warm boot, a cold boot, and a hard boot.

Warm Boot

A warm boot reboots the device without erasing data and applications stored in RAM memory.

To launch a warm boot, tap Start > Programs > Power Tools > Reboot > Warm Boot.

Cold Boot

A cold boot reboots the device, erases some data and applications stored in RAM memory, and re-installs the CAB files stored in the Autoinstall folder.

To launch a cold boot,

Tap Start > Programs > Power Tools > Reboot > Cold Boot.

Use the reset switch; see Using the Reset Switch on page 3-7.

Hard Boot

A hard boot reboots the device, erases all contents of RAM memory, and re-installs the CAB files stored in the Autoinstall folder.

To launch a hard boot, power cycle the unit (remove and reapply AC power).

Using the Reset Switch

The reset switch appears in the same place on all Image Kiosks and allows you to cold boot the device without having to remove and reapply AC power.

Use the end of a straightened paper clip to push the reset switch on the top panel. The unit begins cold booting immediately.

Using the Magnetic Stripe Reader

All IK8570 devices contain a magnetic stripe reader (MSR). To use the MSR, you must have an application installed on the Image Kiosk that can read and process data from a magnetic stripe.

Fortunately, all Image Kiosks contain an MSR Demo that demonstrates some of the capabilities of the MSR.

Swiping a Card With the MSR Demo

1. Tap Start > Programs > Demos > double-tap MSR Demo .

Note: The display area should read “Ready for MSR Swipe.”

2.Make sure that the magnetic strip is facing down, towards the touch screen display.

3. Slide the card from left to right or right to left as shown on the right.

4.MSR Demo reads the card, beeps, and displays the data according to the options selected; see MSR Demo Options on page 3-9.

5.You can swipe the card again and the new data will display. (Scroll up to see the data from the prior swipe.)

6.You can continue to swipe cards and read the data. To clear all prior card reads, tap File > Clear.

7.To close the MSR Demo, tap File > Exit.

MSR Demo Options

The MSR Demo main window offers many data display options.

Raw Data

When you select Raw Data from the Select Data to Display drop-down list, all the data from Tracks 1, 2, and 3 of the card display.

If you don’t want to see information from one or more of the tracks, de-select it, then swipe the card again. Tracks 1, 2, and 3 are active only when Raw Data is selected.

Parsed Data

When you select Parsed Data from the Select Data to Display drop-down list, parsed data from the card displays.

Not all MSR cards contain parsed data. If the data on the card is not parsed, the display area reads “PARSED DATA NOT AVAILABLE FOR THIS CARD” after you swipe the card.
