Honeywell Announces Enhancements to Xenon 1900g & 1902g Scanner Series

Posted October 13, 2016

Honeywell has recently announced an important firmware update to its popular Xenon 1900g and 1902g handheld scanner families. The new firmware includes these enhancements:

  • Three new toggle modes
  • New entry-level Digimarc capable firmware in all standard Xenon 1900gs, and 1902gs
  • Two new entry level Digimarc enabled SKUs

Three New Toggle Modes

When connected directly to an iPad, smart phone, or laptop via Bluetooth HID, you can already toggle the virtual keyboard with several quick pulls of the scanner’s trigger. Now the Xenon adds these additional toggle options:

  • Scanning /imaging
  • Scanning /mobile phone
  • Full FOV /centering

The primary mode (in bold) is the default (normal mode) of operation. When the operator pulls the trigger rapidly for a configurable number of times (default is 3) the scanner will “toggle” between modes. So if the scanner is in the primary mode, it will toggle to the secondary mode, and if it is in the secondary mode, it will toggle to the primary mode. On the next trigger pull (the 4th pull if the scanner is set for the default of 3 pulls) the scanner will perform the toggled to function.

Make Configuring your Scanner Easy with Datalogic’s Aladdin Software

Posted February 15, 2016

Many people think a barcode scanner simply reads the code and transmits the data embedded in the barcode. While this is the most basic operation of a scanner many of them can manipulate the scanned data in a variety of ways to fit whatever your application may need. This is often referred to as advanced data formatting.

Datalogic scanners are some of the most programmable models and their Aladdin software makes setting them up a breeze. This video is a great introduction to the Aladdin software and some of the things you can configure with your scanner.


Top Ten Reasons Retailers Upgrade to Area-Imagers

Posted January 27, 2016

Traditional laser scanners read linear barcodes at the point-of-sale, a technology that greatly simplified checkout. But today’s highly developed area-imaging scanners enable greater capability and flexibility, putting far more productivity into the hands of retail employees and allowing for revenue-generating mobile marketing initiatives.

With these advantages, it’s no wonder VDC’s 2013 Report forecasts area-imaging scanners sales to grow at a rate of 13.4% for the next three years, compared to the expected 7.3% decline for laser-based scanners over the time period. Imaging technology is firmly established as a cost-effective, durable, technologically capable alternative to laser-based systems. Plus, imagers are capable of supporting retailer’s mobile marketing programs, capturing mobile coupons right off customers’ smartphone screens or automatically collecting their information from ID cards for loyalty program auto-enrollment.

Enable Revenue Generating Mobile Marketing Programs
The Internet and mobile broadband service have created new shopping channels for consumers, and new competition for brick and mortar retailers. At the same, a slow growth economy is limiting expansion of disposable income. Innovative retailers are fighting fire with fire, improving their e-commerce presence and adopting the consumer’s mobile phone as a new marketing medium. Promotions sent via SMS text message or via loyalty apps increase shopping visits, generating both immediate incremental revenue and improving long-term share of wallet. The most commonly used technology to electronically identify loyal shoppers and redeem mobile coupons are 2D barcodes rendered on mobile phone screens. And that requires a high performance, area-imaging barcode scanner at the point-of-sale.
