*1 The number of displayable characters is the maximum value when the status display is not visible. If the status display is shown, the number of vertically displayed characters with a 16-dot font is 2 lines or 1 line with a 24- or 32-dot font.
*2 This is the continuous usage time for round-trip wireless communication when barcode reading is performed 1 time every 20 seconds at normal temperatures with the operation confirmation LED and vibration function turned off, the buzzer turned on (at a low volume), the backlight turned on (at low brightness), and the operation speed set to standard.
*3 This is a test value and is not guaranteed.
