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

barcodebunch

  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”.
