 WARNING

 

To reduce the risk associated with hazardous voltage: 

 

Do not attempt to modify or repair - no user serviceable parts inside - contact 3M Service for 
repair. 

To reduce the risk associated with back strain related injury: 

 

Follow safe lifting procedures. 

To reduce the risk associated with a fall or machine tipping related injury: 

 

Do not step or lean on any part of the Conversion Station. 

 

 CAUTION

 

To reduce the risk associated with eye related injury: 

 

Do not look directly into laser scanner device; 

 

At the end of service life, dispose of the laser scanner in accordance with federal, state and local 
requirements. 

To reduce the risk associated with environmental contamination related 
injury: 

 

The Conversion Station contains a lithium battery, mercury in the monitor/display, and circuitry 
that contains lead in the solder.  At the end of service life, dispose of the Conversion Station in 
accordance with federal, state and local requirements. 

 

IMPORTANT NOTES 

Do not bend, fold, or damage the RFID tag in any way.  
Such damage increases the likelihood of premature tag failure. 

If you receive a system message indicating that a tag cannot be programmed, that tag may be 
defective.
 Ask your conversion coordinator where to put any tags that are suspected of being un-
programmable. 

 

 

IMPORTANT NOTE 

The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 21CFR1040.10 requires the following statement for 
products containing lasers: 
Caution-use of controls or adjustments or performa nce of procedures other than those specified herein 
may result in hazardous laser light exposure.

Make sure that you use the correct type of tag. The 
Conversion Station Model 812 uses ISO-compliant 
RFID tags from 3M. 

3M inspects all RFID tags during manufacturing 
and ensures that shipments contain the quantity of 
good tags ordered. When defective tags are 
discovered, the following occurs: 

 

Tags are added to the shipment to make up for 
defective tags discovered during the 
inspection.  

 

A hole is punched through defective tags if a 
customer has purchased this option. Do not 
use tags with holes in them.  

 

 CAUTION

 

To reduce the risk associated with environmental contamination related injury: 

 

The Conversion Station contains a lithium battery, mercury in the monitor/display, and circuitry that contains 
lead in the solder.  At the end of service life, dispose of the Conversion Station in accordance with federal, state 
and local requirements.

Adjusting the Monitor and Scanner 

You can adjust the angle of the monitor and scanner. You must keep the 
following in mind, howver: 

 

When you adjust the viewing angle of the monitor, be sure to support the monitor to ensure that it doesn’t fall.  

 

Adjust the scanner only if the scan line no longer falls over the red line on the Conversion Station desktop. 
The scanner may not read reliably if this angle is not maintained.

Using the Tag Dispenser 

 

IMPORTANT NOTES 

 

Do not bend, fold, or damage RFID tags because this may cause premature tag failure. 

 

If you discover a tag with a hole punched through it, do not use the tag. A hole indicates that the tag 
was identified as defective during inspection.  

 

If you receive a system message indicating that a tag cannot be programmed, ask your conversion 
coordinator where to put these tags.

Clean the spring plate approximately every 5,000 tags or as necessary.  

 

Remove the spring plate. 

 

Hold the spring plate and 
remove the four (4) thumb 
screws
 that attach the spring 
plate to the frame. 

Clean the spring plate with a soft 
cloth and a mild cleaning solution. 

 

The surface of the spring 
plate that contacts the tags 
may have a thin waxy build-
up. 

Replace the spring plate.

Troubleshooting Tag Dispenser problems 

The tag dispenser switch controls the motor 
used to advance tags to the feeder opening on 
the top of the Conversion Station.  

The tag dispenser switch has three positions: 

 

ON (up) position 

 

OFF (middle) position 

 

JOG (down) position 

 

711-811_HG_005

Switch

 

 

 Problem 

Solution 

The motor stops before a 
tag advances into the 
correct position above the 
tag feeder opening,  

Turn the tag dispenser switch to the OFF (middle) position and then to the ON 
(up) position. A tag should advance through the tag feeder opening and into 
the correct position. 

A tag jams below the 
surface of the tag feeder 
opening, 

Go inside the Conversion Station cabinet and clear the jammed tag.  

Turn the tag dispenser switch to the OFF (middle) position and then to the 
ON (up) position.  
 
A tag should advance through the tag feeder opening and into the correct 
position. 

A tag appears in or slightly 
above the tag feeder 
opening but you cannot 
peel off the tag 

Turn the tag dispenser switch to the JOG (down) position as many times as 
necessary to advance or “jog” the tag into the correct position.
