Honeywell Barcode Scanners: An Assortment of Options to Fit Any Environment

Posted May 16, 2018

When it comes to choosing a barcode scanner you have an assortment of options at your fingertips. Honeywell has made it a priority to design scanners that function in every environment. Honeywell’s barcode scanners come in many different shapes, sizes, and functionality. From industrial scanners, pocket scanners, hand-held scanners, hands-free scanners, to many more.

1280i-1The Granit 1280i is an industrial, full-range scanner with the capability to read 1D barcodes up to 54 ft (16.5 m) and as close as 3.5 in (8.9 cm).  Can read virtually any linear barcodes from poor quality 7.5 mil paper codes to 100 mil retro-reflective and anything in between. As part of the Granit series of scanners, the 1280i has an IP65 rating making it dust tight and water-resistant. Built to survive 50 drops to concrete from 6.5 ft (2 m) and 5,000 tumbles of 3.2 ft (1 m).

Granit 1280i Features:

  • Rubberized casing to reduce damage from falls and tumbles.
  • Built for common challenges in different vertical markets and environments.
  • Designed for fast-paced, high-volume barcode scanning.
  • Outstanding scan performance on poor quality and damaged barcodes.
  • Equipped with bright LEDs, enhanced beeper volume, and vibrating tactile response for confirmation of “good reads.”

The Xenon 1902g-bf is a battery free wireless area-imager scanner. Combine the freedom of Bluetooth low energy wireless technology with the qualities of the Xenon family and you get an aggressive barcode scanner that can scan even the poorest quality or damaged barcodes. The 1902g-bf has the ability to scan over 450 barcodes on a single charge; it can be recharged in less than 60 seconds via a powered USB port. Need a quick charge? Just place the scanner in the base and in 20 seconds the LED will flash notifying the user of sufficient power to support 100 scans.

Xenon 1902g-bf Features:

  • Fully charges in under two minutes with a simple USB connection, under 60 seconds when a powered USB or External power supply is used.
  • Two independent configurable recharge alerts remind the user to place scanner back on the base for charging.
  • Designed to withstand 50, 6 ft (1.8 m) drops to concrete.
  • IP41 Environmental Sealing.

Honeywell’s Presentation Mode for Scanners

Posted July 11, 2016

Presentation mode gives customers the ability to scan barcodes without having to squeeze any triggers.  You “present” the barcode to the scanner and it scans.  Presentation mode uses ambient light and scanner illumination to detect barcodes.

There are two types of Presentation Modes:

  1. Presentation Mode.  In this mode the scanner’s LEDs remain dim until a bar code is presented to the scanner.  When a barcode is presented & detected the LEDs turn up, the aimer turns on, and the scanner scans the bar code.   This mode tends to do a better job with bad barcodes.
  2. Streaming Presentation Mode:  The scanner’s LEDs remain fully on and the scanner is always scanning.  When a barcode is presented the aimer turns on and the barcode is “scanned”.  This mode tends to scan good barcodes faster.  In Streaming Presentation Mode there is even a Normal flavor and an Enhanced flavor.
    • Normal = Good scan speed and the longest working ranges.
    • Enhanced = Fastest scan speed but less range.

How 2D Barcode Scanning Can Benefit your Business

Posted July 24, 2014

DS6878SR_PhoneCoupon_002Scanning Basics: From Laser to Imager

Whether you’re aware of it or not, barcodes are one of the most influential technologies of the 20th century. The simple black and white bars you find on every product have helped usher in a level of efficiency that has allowed for large scale tracking around the globe. Many businesses would not be possible to run without the humble barcode. Keeping track of anything accurately is almost unimaginable without barcodes.

Historically, laser-based scanners were used to read barcodes. These laser scanners are still found in many applications today. While there have been advances in the speed and accuracy of laser scanners, the technology is still essentially the same it was when it was first developed in the ‘70s.

Today however, there are two technologies used in readers for barcode scanning: lasers and imagers. Imagers offer several improvements over the traditional laser while also providing important new capabilities, such as being able to read 2D barcodes. Imagers may have been used only in special cases in the past, but today, the advantages they provide over lasers can help improve almost any scanning application.

Efficiency is the Key to Survival for Small and Medium Sized Businesses

Posted April 1, 2013

Warehouse operations can benefit from technology to reduce waste and maximize efficiency. Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) with handheld bar code scanners and mobile computers with wireless communications are the tools of a modern warehouse

As a business grows, its warehouse and inventory needs increase. Often, the tools originally put in place to manage them do not. Inefficiencies from legacy systems usually go undetected and add hidden operating costs to a business. This is particularly important for Small and Medium Sized Businesses (SMB).  SMB’s have a smaller margin for error in managing their operational costs and need to make the most of every resource.

Warehouse operations can benefit from technology to reduce waste and maximize efficiency.  Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) with handheld bar code scanners and mobile computers with wireless communications are the tools of a modern warehouse.  This is true regardless of the size of the business. Today there are WMS systems to fit any sized enterprise – from an out of the box system for small to medium businesses, to a custom deployed system developed by a staff of programmers and IT professionals.  There are also cloud based systems that use the internet eliminating the need to purchase additional servers and software.
