Glossary of Terms

The Intermec glossary provides definitions of technical terms used to describe systems, devices, solutions and applications within the Automated Data Capture Industry.

X dimension
The width of the narrowest element in a bar code symbol. An element can be a bar or a space.
XMODEM
A protocol that allows you to send commands to and communicate through a modem.
XOFF
Defines a character that disables the transmission event. The receiving device sends XOFF when its receive buffers are nearly full of data. Older Intermec products may not include these protocol characters. Newer generation online reader products implement these protocol acronyms.
XON
Enables or disables XON/XOFF flow control and defines a character that reenables transmission when the device can receive data again after an XOFF. Older Intermec products may not include these protocol characters. Newer generation online reader products implement these protocol acronyms.
XON/XOFF
A type of software flow control for communication between digital devices. It stops the host from sending data when the device buffer fills up (XOFF) and starts it again when the buffer empties (XON).
