Converged Devices: Honeywell Captuvo SL22h & SL42h

Posted April 11, 2017

For healthcare professionals, streamlining data collection and communications among staff and patients is one key to patient care. That’s why adding a Captuvo SL22h or Captuvo SL42h enterprise sleds to Apple iPod or iPhone devices makes sense. Your clinicians will gain a more robust productivity tool that’s protected by a disinfectant-ready housing.

Healthcare professionals will readily appreciate how this easy-to-use solution helps you streamline data collection and communications among staff and patients. Plus, the sleds are moisture sealed with disinfectant-ready plastic and a sealed screen protector, so it’s ready to withstand sanitizers and disinfectants.


Scanning One Barcode Within a Bunch

Posted April 3, 2017

To make sure you scan the intended barcode when a bunch of barcodes are bunched together – you have Aimer Delay (coupled with Centering) and you have CodeGate (coupled with Centering) – which we have discussed.  There is another scanner feature that addresses this problem – “Laser Aimer – Scanning Duration”.  It’s a feature in the Honeywell Granit 1280i User Guide, but it also works with other Honeywell area imagers – the Xenon and the other Granit Series.

Here is how this feature works once the feature is turned on:

  • Pull the trigger 1x.  The aimer turns on for X number of seconds which you preprogrammed when turning on the feature
  • It will also scan if you have it aimed at a barcode.
  • If it’s not aimed at a barcode it will give you X seconds to aim the scanner & pull the trigger before the aimer turns off.

Here is a one minute video that demonstrates what I tried to explain:   https://vimeo.com/209922345

You really need to test this!  It’s awesome.  Here are the directions for testing it.

  1. Scan the below barcode

  1. Then go to the back of the Honeywell Xenon/Granit User Guide – page 264 (Programming Chart) – and scan 5000 (5 seconds).
  2. Then on page 265 scan “Save”.

Windows CE and Windows Embedded Handheld End of Life Cycle

Posted February 7, 2017

There is no need to panic just yet but any business that is currently using devices with Windows CE or Windows Embedded Handheld should start to plan for the future. Starting in 2018 through 2020, Microsoft is phasing out support of their Windows Embedded Operating Systems you find on many mobile devices. Windows-based OS are very common especially in the case of more rugged handheld devices, so as you replace these devices you will want to consider changing to some of the alternate OS to future-proof your investment.

  • June 10, 2018 – Windows Embedded CE 6.0 will be End of Life
  • June 9, 2019 –  Windows Embedded 8.1 Handheld will be End of Life

AirTrack S2 Helps County of Greenwood (SC) Sheriff Department’s Capture Data from Driver’s License in the Field

Posted February 3, 2017

The County of Greenwood (South Carolina) Sheriff’s Department is to provide for the safety and protection of the citizens and businesses of Greenwood County through proven full service law enforcement practices, including both reactive and proactive responses to criminal activity, to ensure that public interests and constitutionally guaranteed liberties are protected and that the judicial process is followed according to law. In order to provide the best data to their patrol officers, they needed a way to scan a driver’s license and look up any associated records from out in the field.

Barcodes, Inc. recommended the AirTrack S2 to scan the 2D barcodes off of driver’s licenses. The S2 is a fast, precise and nimble barcode scanner that offers omnidirectional reading and is rugged enough to withstand repeated drops from 5 feet to concrete. Since most driver’s licenses are equipped with both 1D and 2D barcodes, the S2 is ideal for its ability to read both symbologies. Additionally, the S2 can be configured to parse specific driver’s license information based on what data the patrol office wants to capture (i.e. name, driver’s license number, address, birthdate, etc.). The data is then parsed into the department’s software program to look up information on the individual, such as previous records, outstanding warrants, and other information. In order to protect their investment, the Sheriff’s department invested in AirTrack service contracts to protect their devices from defects and normal wear and tear.

To learn more about AirTrack, our Government solutions, or driver’s license parsing, contact one of our representatives.
