To determine whether the information on this page applies to your scanner, see the tags at the bottom of the page.
The Program System
menu lets you create systems and edit existing systems. All existing systems are listed in the order they were created: select the system you want to edit, or select New System
to create a new one.
When you create a new system, the scanner prompts you to select a system type; the system type you select controls what options are available for the system setup. You can't change a system type once the system is created: if you need to change the system type, delete the system and create it all over again as a new system.
