Identifying your Barcode Symbology Type with a Honeywell Xenon of Granit Series Scanner

Posted July 1, 2016

If you have trouble identifying your barcode types (like me) – here is a trick for you.

  • Plug your scanner into your PC.
  • Turn on Word.
  • Go to page 199 of your Xenon/Granit User’s Guide and scan that barcode titled “Add Code I.D Prefix to All Symbologies (Temporary)”
  • Then scan the barcode in question.
  • You’ll see a character in front of the scanned data on your Word doc (or any app that displays scanned data).
  • Go to the section of the chart below (Linear, 2D, Postal) then to the fourth column titled “ID” under Honeywell; find your symbol; and your barcode type is in the first column – Symbology.   This chart is also in the back of the Xenon/Granit User’s Guide.

Note: This setting is temporary and will be removed when the unit is power cycled.
