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.

 


Key Concerns for Choosing an Embedded Data Acquisition Device

Posted March 24, 2015

Microscan Vision MINI Fixed Mount Barcode ScannersAcquiring data with barcode reading or machine vision inspection devices boosts speed and accuracy in automation machines. But embedding the wrong device can undermine your machine’s total power and lifespan. Make sure the device you choose meets precise requirements for form, fit, and function for the life of your embedded system by checking these five facts.

What to Know Before Integration:

  • Barcode Type and Orientation – Do you need to read 1D barcodes or 2D symbols like Data Matrix? How are barcodes presented to the reader?
  • Inspection Requirements – Do you need to check part features like color, position, or defects?
  • Application Speed – How many codes or parts does your device need to process per second?
  • Integration Space – What are the physical dimensions of the space? What are the optical dimensions that allow the device to “see” the part or code in focus?
  • Data Communication Needs – How is acquired data sent to the outside world? Can you control your device from outside your machine?

With these 5 key concerns one of our automation specialists at Barcode Discount can help you find the right Microscan product to fit your needs.

Socket CHS 8Qi Barcode ScannersSocket announced today the availability of their CHS 8Qi cordless handheld scanner. The CHS 8Qi is the second model in the progression of the compact cordless barcode scanners which are attachable to most smartphones enabling one‐handed barcode scanning.

The new CHS 8Qi is designed for high‐performance allowing scanning of most 1D or 2D barcodes.  An ideal choice in Point‐of‐Sale applications where 1D UPC Barcodes, 2D Mobile Coupons and Loyalty Cards need to be scanned. It is also suited for Mobile Ticketing where 2D barcodes are gaining popularity for security and data capacity. The CHS 8Qi attaches to most tablets, laptops and smartphones including the latest Apple iPhone, iPod touch and Android devices in a sled‐type configuration solution.

The CHS 8Qi captures any type of barcode, even under less‐than‐optimal circumstances. The robust engine can read barcodes printed on labels or displayed on a mobile phone screen, high density barcodes, poorly printed barcodes, damaged barcodes and barcodes under shrink wrap.  In addition, the CHS 8Qi provides a “pick list” feature that allows selective reading of a single barcode out of a set of codes that are very close together. Finally, because of its advanced illumination system, the CHS 8Qi handheld scanner makes it easy to capture any bar code on the first scan.
