How to Update the Firmware on your Honeywell Scanner

Posted January 6, 2017

Honeywell is constantly updating their scanners’ firmware to improve scanning performance so you want to make sure your scanner performs at its best.  Updating firmware is simple.

How to update Honeywell scanner firmware.

  1. Go get the latest firmware from the Honeywell website.  For the Xenon 1900 go here: http://aidc.honeywell.com/en-US/Pages/Product.aspx?category=hand-held-barcode-scanner&cat=HSM&pid=1900
  2. Click on the “Software” tab and scroll down to “Firmware”.
  3. Save the .MOC file to your hard drive so that you can grab it later. For Bluetooth scanners (Xenon 1902g, Granit 1981i), you will need to update firmware for both the scanner and the charge/communication base.  Always remember – update scanner firmware first!
  4. Download EZConfig (our free scanner configuration tool) or log into the web version.  Both can be found here: http://country.honeywellaidc.com/en-AP/Pages/Product.aspx?category=device-management-software&cat=HSM&pid=ezconfig
  5. Connect your scanner to your computer via USB.
  6. Open EZConfig.
  7. Click “Connected Device”.  See below.  EZConfig will find your scanner.

  1. Check to see what the latest firmware version you have on your scanner (see below).  Don’t trust EZConfig if it tells you that your “Firmware is up to date.”  Check the Honeywell website – it gets updated first.
  2. Select “Update Firmware” if you need to update your firmware.  See below.

  1. Click “Choose File”.

  1. Select the .MOC file you saved earlier.

  1. Select “Update Firmware” and you are done.

FOR BLUETOOTH SCANNERS – Very important!

Update the scanner’s firmware first then the base firmware.  Also note that the EZConfig will say that the connected device is a “Xenon Charge and Communication Base”.  The system knows that you are upgrading scanner firmware (when you are updating the scanner’s firmware) and will update the scanner through the charge/communications base automatically.

 


How to Confirm and Update the Firmware of your Honeywell Scanner

Posted December 5, 2016

To get the most out of your scanner, having the latest firmware is key.   Here is a quick and easy way to see what version of firmware you have on your Honeywell scanner and/or your scanner’s CCB (charge and communications base).

Open Word (so you can see what you scan) and scan this barcode:

Your scanner’s firmware number shows up as “Software Part Number”.   See below results from a scan from a Granit 1911i.  There is separate firmware for the scanner and its base.

  • Product Name: Industrial Charge & Communication Base
  • Boot Revision: : 2734
  • Software Part Number: BK000121AAA
  • Software Revision: $ProjectRevision: 3952
  • Serial Number: 13126B1ABD
  • Supported IF: Standard
  • PCB Assembly ID: 000000
  • Product Name: 1911i Industrial Wireless Area-Imaging Scanner
  • Boot Revision: : 2734
  • Software Part Number: BJ000144AAA
  • Software Revision: $ProjectRevision: 4467
  • Serial Number: 13128B031F
  • Supported IF: Bluetooth
  • PCB Assembly ID: 000000
  • Engine Firmware Type: N/A   Revision: N/A   Serial Number: N/A   Checksum: N/A

Latest firmware versions can be found on our external website on each scanner’s web page.  You’ll have to drill down a bit, but it’s there.

To load the latest firmware you’ll need EZConfig – our free scanner configuration tool.  See below for instructions on loading new firmware onto a Honeywell Xenon 1902g

How to load new firmware onto a Xenon 1902g.

  1. You will need to update firmware for both the scanner and the charge/communication base.
  2. Save .MOC firmware files for both the charge/communication base and the scanner (two .MOC files) to your hard drive. You can get them from the scanner’s webpage – http://aidc.honeywell.com/en-US/Pages/Product.aspx?category=wireless-barcode-scanner&cat=HSM&pid=1902 – under the “Firmware” section.
  3. Download EZConfig (our free scanner configuration tool) or log into the web version. Both can be found here: http://country.honeywellaidc.com/en-AP/Pages/Product.aspx?category=device-management-software&cat=HSM&pid=ezconfig
  4. Connect your charge/communication base (with scanner inserted) to your computer via USB.
  5. Open EZConfig.
  6. Click “Connected Device”. See below.
  7. Select “Update Firmware”. See below.

Note:  If you use the version of EZConfig that sits on your PC, it may tell you that your scanner has the latest version of firmware when you actually don’t.  Always check the scanner’s external webpage for the latest.

Another Note:  For Bluetooth Scanners – except for the Honeywell 8670 back-of-the-hand Bluetooth Scanner – you’ll need to update both the base (CCB) and the scanner’s firmware.  lt’s always best to load the firmware on the scanner first then the CCB.
