SECTION 1

General Information

Display

This hand-held computer offers an easy to read Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) with touch screen. The display shows status messages, keyed-in entries, customer or product lists, calculations, and prompts for responses. The touch screen can be used with a stylus, or your finger to choose functions, record signatures, or enter data.

Adjusting the contrast setting for the display is done by pressing the gold Shift key and tap either the 1 (increase) or 2 (decrease) key until you achieve the desired level. Of course, this will depend on if these keys have not been programmed for other functions.

Backlight

Your hand-held computer display and keyboard comes equipped with a backlight. Backlighting provides a great benefit in dark conditions.

Backlighting does, however, reduce battery life, therefore, turn off the backlight when done using.

To turn the backlight on, press the gold Shift key and the 3 key. To turn the backlight off, press gold Shift and the 3 key again. The amount of time the backlight stays on before shutting itself off is set and controlled through the Configuration Program.

Battery

" NOTE: It is important to charge your hand-held computer for at least 14 hours before you use it the first time. This ensures that both the backup battery and the main battery pack are fully charged.

This hand-held computer uses a 1500 mA hour lithium ion rechargeable main battery pack. Your hand-held computer can check battery capacity by various methods. One, the battery pack has four LEDs that will display remaining ca-

SECTION 1

pacity when two of the contacts are touched at the same time. More on this in Section 2 on page 2-9. A second method is to use a software fuel gauge based on the APM 1.1 specification.

If your hand-held computer goes into a shutdown mode because of low battery condition, data is protected by the backup battery. Your computer contains two 100 mA hour vanadium lithium backup batteries. The backup battery charges itself from the main pack or a charging source so it is constantly ready to take over data protection.

This user’s guide will occasionally use the term “cycles” when presenting rechargeable battery instructions. Cycles, are the number of times the rechargeable battery pack can be charged and discharged during the life of battery. The Lithium Ion rechargeable battery design, used in the main pack, should give you approximately 500 cycles of use. There are no guarantees on this number because it depends greatly on how the battery pack is used and cared for.

Memory

Three types of memory are available with this computer:

"Main Memory DRAM

"Flash ROM

"PC Cards

Main Memory

Standard main memory DRAM configuration is 8 megabytes (MB), this can be extended to 16, or 32 MBs. Main memory was ordered at the time your unit was purchased. You are able to upgrade to a larger memory size by having a new memory board installed at your Customer Support Center.

The main memory is protected by the backup battery during low main battery conditions or when the main battery pack is removed.

1-6 6110 Hand-Held Computer User’s Guide

SECTION 1

General Information

Flash ROM

Flash ROM stores the BIOS and BIOS extensions for your hand-held computer.

PC Cards

Different brands of PC cards can be used in your hand-held computer. Memory cards are available in a variety of sizes and types. Check with your Sales Representative or System Engineer for specific options.

Your computer is equipped with three PC card slots. These slots can be used with memory cards for storage of data, much like a floppy disk drive on a PC. These slots can also be used for modems, radios, hard drives, and other options as they become available.

Two of the PC card slots are version 2.0 Type II and the other slot is an ATA card slot. Type III cards can be installed but you sacrifice slot space. The ATA and two PC slots have card guides, but the empty bay on top does not. There is no blockage between any of the slots, so any pair of Type II bays can accommodate a Type III card.

EXAMPLE: A Type III ATA hard drive card can be installed in the ATA slot, but it takes up the PC slot B bay space. A Type III PC card installed in slot B takes up slot B and A; and a Type III PC card installed in slot A takes up slot A and the empty bay.

PC Card Slots

When a card is installed, the top label of the card faces upward (per the orientation shown in Figure 1-5). Slot C (ATA slot) must always have a mass storage device to serve as the system disk (C:). This can be a SanDisk flash memory card or a rotating hard disk drive. The system will not operate without this disk present.

6110 Hand-Held Computer User’s Guide 1-9

General Information

SECTION 1

Slots A and B are true PC card slots, and can accommodate a variety of pc cards such as modems, radios, or additional mass storage.

A special factory installed option involves a serial interface radio card (example: Motorola Series 500 Radio) for use in slot A. This type of card does not have PC interface, therefore, it cannot be inserted all the way into the connector at the back of the bay. A special bracket holds the card in place, and the serial interface is attached via a flex cable.

" NOTE: Section 2 page 2-11 shows you how to install the PC cards.

[Gold] (Shift) Key

Hold down and press desired gold (shifted) key functions. Continue to hold down the [GOLD] key for each shifted key stroke you wish to make.

[I/O] Suspend and Resume Key

In order to conserve power your hand-held computer may automatically suspend when there has been no activity for a set period of time. This time is determined by the configuration program.

To force a suspend, press the key defined as the suspend key and hold the key down for three seconds. To resume operation, press the [I/O] key. Additionally, pressing the release button on the battery pack door forces a suspend. This protects against losing data when removing the battery pack.

Resetting

In the rare event that your hand-held computer fails to respond to your input, it may be necessary to “reset.” To reset press the Gold (shift), Ctrl, Alt keys at the same time, hold the keys down for three seconds, and your computer will reboot.

Options and Accessories

Radio Card

Your hand-held computer can be ordered with a radio card. Using a radio card allows you to operate in a mobile environment and have real-time interaction with a host computer. The radio card slides into either PC card slot A or B (see page 2-11 for installation and location detail).

Introduction

This section tells you how to:

"Install the main battery pack

"“Power-up” your hand-held computer

"Install PC cards

"Connect to peripheral devices

Getting Started

Unpack your Intermec 6110 Hand-Held Computer and inspect it for signs of physical damage from shipment or storage.

When you start using your hand-held computer or any time that all power has been completely removed, you are “cold booting” your hand-held computer. The method you use depends on your application.

For example you may download (transfer from the host computer to your hand-held computer) the application and data into your computer. Or, you may use PC cards to load the application and data.

Depending on the method you are using, the result will be the same but the steps you go through may vary from the way this user’s guide presents the material.
