X-Rite Set-up Barcode pages are supplied on the QuickCal CD-ROM for some manual configurations... Check the third party support folder on the CD-ROM to see if there is a configuration page that contains all the settings for your software package... More information about reading bar codes is found in section 2 of the manual...

The LEDs signal the status of the instrument when reading a set-up barcode... While scanning the initial barcode, the LEDs will flash slowly between off and green, the same as any normal scan... Once the unit has recognized the initial barcode as being part of a set-up barcode, the LEDs will slowly flash between yellow and green... This same flash pattern will continue while scanning continuation barcodes... Upon completion of the entire set-up barcode, the LEDs will come on steady green, indicating a successful completion...
