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.
