 Warning: Do not stare directly into the laser beam.

How to Scan a Bar Code

The 8690i scanner has a view finder that projects a bright aiming pattern. This aiming pattern should be centered over the bar code, but it can be positioned in any direction for a good read.

Connect the Device via Bluetooth®

Pair with a PC or Laptop Bluetooth Serial Port: Host Reconnect Mode

The 8690i can pair with host Bluetooth devices such as personal computers, laptops, and tablets. In this mode, the host will continually attempt to connect with the device. If the device and the host become disconnected, the host will manage the reconnection.

  1. Scan the Host Reconnect Mode bar code, below.
    Honeywell 8690i Wearable RFID Mini Wearable Mobile Computer - Barcode 1Host Reconnect Mode
  2. Set your host device so it searches for other Bluetooth devices. (Refer to your host device’s User’s Guide for pairing instructions.)
  3. When your host device has located the 8690i, you can select it from the list displayed.
    Note: Refer to the 8690i User’s Guide if your host device displays a PIN.

The Bluetooth symbol appears in the device window when the device pairs with a host.

Pair with a PC or Laptop Bluetooth: HID Keyboard Mode

In this mode, the 8690i pairs with a Bluetooth device using a HID keyboard.

  1. Scan the Bluetooth HID Keyboard Connect bar code below.

  2. Set your host device so it searches for other Bluetooth devices. (Refer to your host device’s User’s Guide for pairing instructions.)
  3. When your host device has located the 8690i, you can select it from the list displayed.

Note: Refer to the 8690i User’s Guide if your host device displays a PIN.

The Bluetooth symbol appears in the device window when the device pairs with a host.

Disconnect from the Host

Once your device has been connected to a host, you must disconnect it in order to communicate with a different device. Scan the Bluetooth Disconnect bar code to unlink the device from the currently linked host.

  2. Touch the Android phone to the device.
  3. The phone recognizes the device and prompts you to pair.
  4. Verify the pairing of the 8690i in your phone’s Bluetooth settings.
Pair with an Android, AppleTM or Windows® Mobile Device

The 8690i can pair with Android, Apple, and Windows mobile devices, excluding Windows CE and Mobile.

  1. Set your mobile device so it searches for other Bluetooth devices. (Refer to your mobile device’s User’s Guide for pairing instructions.)
  2. Scan the Bluetooth HID Keyboard Connect bar code below.

The Bluetooth symbol appears in the user window when the 8690i pairs with a host.

Reset Custom Defaults

If you want the custom default settings restored to your 8690i, scan the Activate Custom Defaults bar code below. This is the recommended default bar code for most users. It resets the 8690i to the custom default settings. If there are no custom defaults, it resets the 8690i to the factory default settings. Any settings that have not been specified through the custom defaults are defaulted to the factory default settings.
