  2. Connect the modular connector of the Y-cable to the host port as described in Connecting Cables.
  3. Connect the round male DIN host connector of the Y-cable to the keyboard port on the host device.
  4. Connect the round female DIN keyboard connector of the Y-cable to the keyboard connector.
  5. Optionally connect a hand-held auxiliary scanner to theaux port.
  6. If connecting an auxiliary scanner, connect the power supply to the power port and an AC outlet.
  7. Ensure that all connections are secure.
  8. Turn on the host system.
