Honeywell’s New Granite 1280i Industrial-Grade Barcode Scanner

Posted March 18, 2014

Honeywell has announced ts latest innovations for the distribution center with  a best-in-class industrial-grade full range laser barcode scanner at MODEX 2014 in Atlanta.The Granit 1280iFR scanner joins Honeywell’s broad portfolio of scanning solutions for warehouse workers and offers the ability to easily read barcodes from short and long distances, improving worker productivity in the distribution center and cold storage environments.

As the newest member of Honeywell’s industrial scanner portfolio, the Granit 1280iFR is designed to excel in the most demanding mission critical environments where accuracy and durability are imperative. To improve worker efficiency, the Granit 1280iFR features the ability to read 100 mil retro-reflective labels from as far away as 54 feet (16.5 m) and 7.5 mil codes as close as 3.5 inches (8.9 cm). Designed to survive the harshest environments, the scanner offers unparalleled durability by sustaining more than 5,000 1m tumbles and 50 drops from 2m to concrete. The Granit 1280iFR is designed for continuous operation at temperatures of -30 degrees C and with the new industrial cable that can survive more than 300,000 cable bends at a 90 degree angle at -30 degrees C, making it the industry’s best full-range scanner for cold storage environments.

The Next Generation Warehouse : Long Range Scanning and the Emergence of 2D Barcodes

Posted June 14, 2012


Today’s warehouses are rapidly evolving as they seek to keep up with a variety of new requirements and advancements in technology. Processes traditionally using 1-dimensional bar codes are becoming more accurate, more efficient, and more robust through the transition to 2D symbologies. Offering superior data storage capability yet compact in size, these 2D symbols are ideal for cradle-to-grave tracking of products and serialization. As imaging technology progresses, businesses are poised to take advantage of the benefits of implementing 2D while continuing to accommodate the long range scanning requirements typical in the warehouse environment.

Driving this transition is the growing need to track individual parts from assembly to shipment and beyond for information and traceability purposes, largely imposed by company-specific or legislative requirements. A 2D bar code can accommodate significantly more information than its 1d counterpart, and in a fraction of the space, making such traceability possible.

Historically, laser scanners have been the preferred technology in warehousing because of their speed, accuracy, and ability to read at long range. however, as 2D bar codes become more common and imaging technology matures, manufacturers are now discovering what imagers have to offer in terms of flexibility, traceability, and legislative standards compliance.
