Posted January 23, 2024
how to update firmware on honeywell scanner with ezconfig guide

Honeywell updates their scanners’ firmware on a regular basis. Are your Honeywell barcode scanners running the latest firmware? This ensures your scanners perform at their best.  Updating firmware for Honeywell devices is simple.

How to Update Honeywell Scanner Firmware

1.) First, download the latest firmware from the Honeywell website. As an example, the Xenon 1900 firmware can be found here: Honeywell List of Software

2.) Expand the “Software” tab, Barcode Scanners, Handheld, and scroll down to “Xenon XP 1950g and 1950hc”. This takes you to that device’s specific firmware revision file with a download button:

honeywell firmware update

3.) Save the .SMOC file to your hard drive so that you can grab it later. For Bluetooth scanners, you will  need to update firmware for both the scanner and the charge/communication base.  Always remember – update scanner firmware first!

4.) Download EZConfig (a free scanner configuration tool): Honeywell EZConfig for Scanning

5.) Connect your scanner to your computer via USB.

6.) Open EZConfig.

7.) Click “Connected Device”. EZConfig will find your scanner.

8.) 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.

9.) Select “Update Firmware” if you need to update your firmware.

10.) Click “Browse” under Update from File. Remember, just because it says firmware updated on the status, that may not be true.

11.) Select the .SMOC file you saved earlier and upload.

12.) Click “Update Firmware” and you are done.


Update the scanner’s firmware first, then the charging 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 Barcodes & Honeywell Technology Helped Transform Warehouse Operations

Posted December 13, 2023

Coconut oil and tropical leaves. Hair care spa concept.

Transforming warehouse operations with barcode technology increases efficiency, throughput, and cost-effectiveness. However, businesses that have always relied on manual processes may need to learn the steps to ensure their tech investments lead to value and ROI. Barcodes, Inc. provides the guidance and expertise necessary for successful warehouse transformation.

The project at Monat Global Corp. is an excellent example of how proper barcode technology implementation can improve operations and position a business for greater success. This direct sales haircare, skincare, and wellness product company was 100% manual, even relying on employees to build boxes. However, putaway and picking were also manual. Employees memorized product locations in the warehouse and jotted down the quantities they needed to fill orders, an inefficient and sometimes error-prone process.

Steps to Warehouse Transformation

Barcodes, Inc. and its partner Alpine Supply Chain Solutions worked with Monat to implement barcode technology with dramatic results.

Step one was creating a naming structure that worked with Monat’s SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) system.

Then Barcodes, Inc. generated labels in batches for warehouse racking so Monat could save time and apply the labels systematically.

With labels in place, Monat relied on Barcodes, Inc.’s expertise to test mobile devices and barcode scanners to select the best options for the warehouse. Monat chose Honeywell CK65 mobile devices and Granit XP 1990iXR corded scanners. The solution also included Honeywell vehicle-mounted computers and industrial printers.

The technology allowed Monat’s team to no longer memorize product locations or depend on handwritten notes. They now use modern processes, such as directed putaway, triggered replenishment, and triggered case picking.

See Monat’s Digital Transformation in Action

The Advantages of a Modern Warehouse with Barcode Technology

Monat monitored key performance indicators before and after the transition and found that using barcode technology significantly impacted its overall operation. Monat’s warehouse increased from 80 to 260 lines per hour and from 20 to 60 orders per hour, tripling throughput.

The company also saw a vast improvement in order accuracy and decreased the time necessary to train new employees to work independently from days to just an hour.

honeywell consumables your guide to printers and supplies

Genuine consumables from Honeywell include labels, ribbons, RFID tags, and more for a wide variety of environments and labeling applications.

Depending on your needs, certain consumables and media may be a better choice than others. Here are some questions to consider for consumables, examples of different print media, and the latest Honeywell barcode label printers.

Genuine Consumables from Honeywell

Honeywell’s printer supplies are optimized for use with Honeywell printers, providing thermal printing solutions that simplify operations and lower total cost of ownership.

Whatever your print needs, ranging from barcode labels, media tags, and receipt paper to thermal media, RFID labels, and patient wristbands – using genuine Honeywell consumables and printer supplies allows for the very best performance.

Honeywell Barcode Label Printers

Honeywell’s latest industrial printers all improve operational productivity with minimal downtime. They print more labels at faster speeds, without compromising label quality or accuracy.

Many of the following printers can accomplish similar results and are highly recommended. Instead, we will point out the differences between Honeywell’s PM, PD, PX, and RP series.

For a personalized recommendation, don’t hesitate to contact us for assistance.

PXie Series Printers Should be Replaced with PX45 or PX65

Honeywell announced in May 2022 that it will be discontinuing the PX4ie and PX6ie series of printers.

Anyone planning to upgrade this year should now consider the new PX45 and PX65 printers instead, expected to be available in August 2022.

These are very similar in spec to the PXie series printers, but are even more rugged and future proof. Improvements in the PX45 and PX65 include:

  • Faster processing speed: CPU, FPGA and Motor controller upgrade
  • Larger memory size: 256MB/512MB RAM/Flash upgrade
  • RFID enhancement: new IM11 module included
  • Connectivity enhancement: Ethernet 10/100/1000, high speed USB included
  • All accessories compatible with PXie series printers

Both the PX45 and PX65 are durable, all-metal industrial printers, printing up to 12 inches per second from the first label to the last. Both printers boast at a resolution of 203 or 300 dpi, and the PX45 also has a resolution of 406 dpi. This is perfect for compliance labeling applications that need immediate results from dynamic datasets. The magnetic QuickMount™ printhead makes it easy and quick to change printheads.

Honeywell labels and other media are designed and tested with the PX45 and PX65 printers to make sure they work best with genuine Honeywell media.

PM45 and PD45 Printers

Both the PM45 and PD45 barcode label printers from Honeywell are worth a look for industrial and retail environments (especially the PD45s printer).

RP2e and RP4e Printers

By printing labels on demand, right where they’ll be used, this portable printer boosts efficiency and cuts down on mistakes. When compared to competing mobile printers, the RP4e’s advantages are clear: it has nearly twice the print speed media capacity, an improvement of one point in ANSI print quality, and superior battery power longevity thanks to our new Hi-drain battery.

This means that your employees will be able to get more done in less time without having to waste any of it waiting for media to load or changing batteries.

The RPe Series printer produces labels and receipts from 25.4 mm (1 in) to 104.1 mm (4.1 in) and supports a broad range of media, including the thick material required for hang tags and specialized labeling.

In addition, whether you’re working with a single media format or a combination of formats, the application’s quick and simple loading design means fewer interruptions and more productivity.

If you’re looking for long-range and lightning-fast data connectivity on your WL AN, look no farther than the RPe Series with its cutting-edge 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi capabilities. When employees need to print from locations outside of the WL AN’s range or use the printer with a Bluetooth mobile device, the printer’s built-in Bluetooth® 4.0 LE radio comes in handy at no extra cost. In addition, the printer supports NFC so that status and settings may be checked even when there is no access to the internet.

Both the RP2e and the RP4e printers from Honeywell are available now.

PX940 Printer

The powerhouse that is the PX940 still remains one of the best selling industrial label printers. See why the PX940 printer is chosen time and time again.
