Finding Honeywell’s Vuquest Scanner In More Places Than You’d Expect

Posted June 1, 2016

I took a Southwest Airlines flight last week and was delighted to see that they use the Honeywell Vuquest 3310g to scan boarding passes. So I started thinking – the humble Vuquest (2D Area Imager) doesn’t get enough press – probably because it finds itself inside things, or under things or behind things.

Below are just a few examples of where you’ll find the Vuquest.  So don’t forget about it when solving your customer’s scanning problems. Thank of it as a Xenon in a smaller more compact, easily mounted form.

  • Southwest Airlines.  Scanning boarding passes.
  • Law Enforcement. Electronic Ticketing / eCitation solution. Vuquest is inside the below device in the officer’s hand.
  • One of the largest convenience store chains uses them inside their “loyalty kiosks” to scan loyalty cards. Kiosks are a classic use case.
  • A European grocer with a significant presence in the US uses 3310’s at checkout to scan loyalty cards and in their self-checkout lanes to scan the final barcode off of mobile device used in their “scan as you go” application.
  • A very large hamburger chain is putting the Vuquest into their in-store McKiosks.
  • An extremely large online retailer that seems to be delivering packages to my house daily uses them to read bin license plates in their picking application and inside robots to read 2D codes on their floors for guidance in their warehouse.
  • The 2nd largest grocery chain uses them in their pharmacies to scan bottles of pills and filled prescriptions. Another classic use case for the space saving Vuquest
  • A large Midwest based vending machine company puts them in open unmanned vending kiosks to scan employee’s employee ID card.
