The following read modes are available:

Single read:
When a bar code has been decoded, the reader will be turned OFF. The reader must be triggered again to read another label. This option and "Disable trigger" can not be programmed at the same time.

Multiple read:
When a bar code has been decoded, the reader will stay ON for a time as set by "Read time options" or indefinitely if the trigger switch has been disabled. The same label can only be decoded again after the label has not been detected for a number of scans.

Continuous read:
The reader will produce as much data as it can decode regardless whether it is the same or not. This mode is mainly used for demonstration and diagnosis.

Disable trigger:
This is applicable to readers which have a trigger switch. When this option is selected, the reader will stay ON all the time.
Note: Selecting this option for a laser reader means that the laser diode is ON continuously, which may reduce the lifetime of this component. Also local legislation may require that the trigger switch is always enabled. Therefore it is recommended not to disable the trigger switch for laser readers.

Add-on wait mode:
Used if UPC/EAN with add-on is enabled. The reader searches within the selected time for a valid add-on code. If a valid add-on code is found, the reader transmits the data immediately. If nothing is found behind the code, the scanner will transmit the data without add-on. If something is found behind the code, the reader ignored the code in case it is not a valid add-on.

Trigger repeat:
This option makes it more easy to select a single bar code from a sheet filled with bar codes. If the trigger switch is pressed once, the laser beam is on during the configured read time. The laser beam can now be moved to the required bar code. If the trigger switch is pressed again, the bar code is decoded and transmitted. If the read time expires, the laser switches off and the trigger sequence should be repeated. If the read time is set to 0, then if the trigger switch is pressed, the laser is on, but does not accept bar codes. As soon the trigger switch is released, the barcode is decoded and transmitted. Support for this option is reader dependent.

Structured append time out:
When a bar code consists of multiple physical bar codes, this time out value is used. The next bar code must be read before this time out is expired. The time out value is between 1 and 255 seconds. This value can be configured by reading 1 up to 3 direct input numeric characters from chapter: String options.
Default the structured append time out is set to 30 seconds.
