Wavelink update 5.1 to 7.1

Is there a way to update Wavelink Telnet Emulator from 5.1 to 7.0.02 without having to reenter all the Wavelink licenses. I tried to update a PDT and it worked. But the Wavelink license of version 5.1 is no more valid for the Wavelink version 7.0.02.

The idea of updating the software is to get real info of the RF signal strength on the PDT screen. With the version 5.1 Wavelink and a PDT 3090 the RF signal strength is misunderstood by the Wavelink software.

I'm using a 3090 PDT with Windows CE 5.0 installed.

Unfortunately you wil need to purchase new licenses for wavelink if you want to update to their latest unless you have a license maintenance contract with them, in which case the upgrade would be free.

The prelicensing that comes with the symbol units is only for version 5, to upgrade you need to buy a license. its part of the marketing

Unit will not boot. Screen reads

"Check serial Input" is just part of the cycle on boot up. It checks for a key press on boot up so that it can access a hidden menu. A cradle, serial null modem cable and hyper-terminal is required to bring up this menu

You can try and re-install the operating system.

Download the latest image from Intermec (you will need to register) and then load the image onto an SD card.

Remove the front cover just above the scan engine; 2 slot head screws and insert the SD card. Cold boot the device. Take off battery and hit the reset button a few times. Re-install battery.

Image will begin to reload.

Detailed instructions are available with the download.

NOTE: The latest image downloads from Intermec not longer have the Telnet application pre-installed. If you require the telnet client then select a previous version, but then also not that there are usually 2 versions EX25 and non-EX25 scan engine type.

How do you incorporate the Symbol PTC-960SL with a system?


To answer your question there are a number of ways to use the PTC960SL in a system. The main 2 ways are by batch process or Telnet session.

The batch process requires a custom program to be written for the device either in DOS or TCAL. This would then produce a single file or a set of files which would then be downloaded to a host pc using a cable or cradle.

The more common method is to have a Telnet Server running and the PTC960SL logs into the session using a Telnet client, AirvuAnsi for example. The Telnet Server holds the menu structure and database manipulation for the PTC960SL. The PTC960SL only emulates what’s running on the server. A permanent connection is required to keep the session open. This is done by either using a stable wireless network or a network controller which keeps the sessions active even if the hand held device goes out of range. This would mean the PTC960SL would have to have a wireless card within it.

Peoblem Loading the main app

Next you will need to load the application that you require. LWP and UPD just contains part of the OS and the radio drivers. What application are you planning to use? Telnet application?

My Intermec CK31 just hangs, it scan and there is a sounf beeping but the touchscreen is not working and even the keyboard.

Sounds like you could have a main logic board problem. Try restoring computer to factory defaults from the intermec settings.
