Battery-Free Scanning with Honeywell’s Xenon 1902g-bf

Posted June 23, 2017

The Honeywell Xenon 1902g-bf area-imager scanner incorporates the latest in battery-free technology, offering the freedom of Bluetooth low energy wireless technology without the maintenance hassles or long recharge time associated with traditional batteries. Like all other Xenon scanners, the 1902g-bf scanner delivers aggressive barcode scanning performance, even on poor-quality or damaged barcodes.

An integrated Bluetooth low-energy Class 2 radio gives users complete freedom of movement up to 10 meters (33 feet) from the base in a typical work environment. For added convenience, a paging system on the base activates auditory signals that help to locate a misplaced scanner. By eliminating the trip-hazard of tethered cables, the Xenon 1902g-bf scanner can provide a safer and more productive environment.

  • When fully charged, the Xenon 1902g-bf scanner can typically scan over 450 UPC/EAN codes without the need for recharging – more than enough to check out 25 customers during peak times, or scan a morning’s worth of overnight deliveries.
  • Super-capacitors hold their charge for hours when fully charged. So operators who forget to place their scanner in the charger prior to break won’t impact operations upon return.
  • Two fully independently configurable recharge alerts remind the operator to place the scanner back into the base for charging. The alerts can be configured to trigger at different levels of discharge and with different levels of urgency, ensuring continuous operation.
  • The Xenon 1902g-bf scanner is fully charged in under two minutes with a simple USB connection, and under 30 seconds when a powered USB or external power supply is used.
  • When a fully discharged scanner is placed in the base, the ready-to scan LED on the base will typically flash in less than 20 seconds to notify the operator that there is sufficient power to support over 5 minutes of scanning.
