Honeywell’s Granit Series are an Industrial Grade Series of Scanners

Posted December 5, 2017

When it comes to Honeywell’s Granit Series there are no shortage of options for the worlds many needs. The industrial grade series of scanners are built to withstand the varied demands of harsh working environments. Incorporating the Granit housing that has long set the standard for scanner reliability, the Granit Series of scanners come with an IP65 rating and are built to survive 5,000 tumbles from 3.2 ft (1 m) and 50 drops to concrete from 6.5 ft (2 m).

1280iFirst up is the Granit 1280i, a wired laser scanner that can read barcodes as far as 54 ft (16.5 m) or as close as 3.5 in (8.9 cm). Designed to read virtually all linear barcodes across a wide depth of field from poor quality 7.5 mil paper coders to 100 mil retro-reflective codes and anything in between. The 1280i comes with bright LEDs, enhanced beeper volume, and a vibrating tactile response to overcome poor lighting conditions and loud machinery.

1920iNext is the Granit 1920i an area imaging scanner that captures virtually any direct park mark with ease, along with the standard 1D and 2D barcodes on printed labels. The scanner works by a highly innovative lighting system that allows the imager to optimally illuminate marks of any type and on any surface. The low angle direct lighting provides the uniform illumination required for dot peen and laser-etched marks. An integrated diffuser delivers the soft, indirect light required for marks on shiny, round, or otherwise highly reflective surfaces.

granit-1911iUp next are the Granit 1910i and the Granit 1911i a set of, wired and wireless respectively, area imaging scanners for demanding arm’s length scanning of 1D and 2D barcodes. Both come with TotalFreedom area-imaging development platform that enables the loading and linking of multiple applications to enhance image decoding, data formatting, and image processing; making the need for host system modifications obsolete. They can scan 20 mil linear codes out to 29.5 in (75 cm) without sacrificing performance on 2D codes. The 1911i has a long-lasting Lithium Ion battery that powers up to 50,000 scans per full charge.

1980i-1981iLastly are the Granit 1980i and the Granit 1981i a set of, wired and wireless respectively, area imaging scanners that are capable of reading 1D and 2D barcodes from as close as 6 in (15 cm) up to 50 ft (15 m). With an integrated laser pointer aiming system with auto-illumination, omnidirectional reading capability, and support for centering – users will be able to take the guesswork out of scanning at extended ranges. They can scan low density 100 mil codes at long range and high density 2 mil codes at close range.

Honeywell’s 1980i and 1981i are a Rugged Set of Scanners

Posted August 15, 2017

1980i-1981iThe Granit 1980i (wired) and the 1981i (wireless) are area-imaging scanners capable of reading 1D and 2D barcodes from as close as 6 inches (15 cm) up to 50 feet away(15m). As a member of the Granit Series of scanners, the 1980i and the 1981i are built to withstand the varied demands of harsh distribution centers and warehouse environments. With an unmatched range and the option of wireless freedom, these rugged Honeywell scanners will maximize operator productivity. Fork truck operators equipped with vehicle-mounted mobile computers, such as the Honeywell Thor series, will appreciate how the full range scanning capability allows them to remain seated, and thus more productive, while scanning barcodes at extended ranges. The integrated Bluetooth technology will allow the operators complete freedom of movement up 328 feet (100m) from the base station.

1980i/1981i Features

  • Full-Range Area-Imaging Performance: Scan virtually all 1D and 2D barcodes from 6 in (15 cm) to over 50 ft (15 m) away.
  • Built Granit Tough: Tested to withstand the toughest environments, the 1980i and 1981i are rated IP65 and can withstand 5,000 tumbles from 3.2 ft (1 m) and 50 drops to concrete from 6.5 ft (2 m).
  • Easy to Use: A laser-spot aimer, omni-directional scanning, and features such as center-decode take the guesswork out of scanning at extended ranges.
  • Single Scanning Solution: Can replace and consolidate multiple purpose-built scanners in typical distribution center and warehouse environments.

“Lux” Explained for Barcode Scanning

Posted May 17, 2016

The Granit user guide has a performance chart that says – “Granit 1980i/1981i Scanner Typical Performance (200 lux).   So what is this “lux” thing?

Lux is the amount of ambient light in the area.  A full sun, no clouds in the sky, summer day would be considered about 100,000 Lux.  A completely dark area with no ambient light at all would be 0 Lux.  A typical office environment is usually between 500 – 700 Lux.  Granit scanner are used typically in a warehouse which are usually dimmer than offices.  It would be safe to say that a warehouse would measure about 200 Lux of ambient lighting.
