Ensure Scanning Flexibility with the 2D Upgradable Honeywell Voyager 1400g

Posted September 29, 2014

Honeywell 1400g ScannerWhy should you have to choose between buying a 1D scanner today and risk replacing it with a 2D scanner in a few years, or paying more for a 2D scanner today when you may never need to read 2D? Start out with 1D performance at 1D pricing and upgrade to what you need, when you need it, for much less than purchasing a new scanner.

Built on the platform of Honeywell’s world-renowned Voyager series of hand-held linear scanners, the Voyager 1400g delivers omnidirectional reading of linear bar codes, plus the ability to affordably upgrade the device license to enable PDF and 2D bar code scanning—at the time of purchase or as scanning needs evolve. Performing at speeds that are comparable to laser-based scanners, the versatile and reliable Voyager 1400g can be customized to meet current and future scanning needs, lowering the total cost of ownership.

When Datamax-O’Neil set out to design its Performance Series thermal transfer printers for the retail, hospitality, healthcare, distribution, warehousing, manufacturing, transportation, public service, government and financial industries, it focused on improving overall print quality and end-user experience.

The printers’ 300 dpi print heads and full-color, LCD touch displays have turned heads in the marketplace since being introduced in 2011; but their greatest improvement lies not in what’s on the outside, but in the ground-breaking application of standard printer languages and open-source software development modules that give technology administrators freedom to define how the printers will operate within their organizations.
