The Honeywell 1902 Xenon handheld barcode reader is black, contains an area imager, comes with a charging base, and can be used to scan and decode linear one-dimensional (1D), two-dimensional (2D), and Portable Document Format 417 (PDF417) barcodes. The area imager enables the barcode reader to scan 1D and 2D barcodes on labels or cell phone screens, capture images, and scan documents. Wireless Bluetooth capability allows the barcode reader to transmit data from up to 33' away from the charging base. The charging base can be plugged into the USB port of a computer or another host system (sold separately) to transmit barcode data. Image software can be used to edit digital images. A TotalFreedom feature enables barcode formatting, parsing, and decoding software to be installed directly on the barcode reader instead of the host system. Honeywell Remote MasterMind software can be used by an administrator to manage the device remotely. The lithium-ion battery enables the barcode reader to be used for up to 14 hours and to make up to 50,000 scans on one charge. The barcode reader weighs 7.5 oz. and measures 6.3 x 2.8 x 4.1 inches (H x W x D). (H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.) The charging base weighs 6.3 oz. and measures 3.2 x 4 x 5.2 inches. It can withstand 50 drops of up to 6' on a concrete floor.
Barcode scanners, also known as barcode readers, can be used to scan and decode barcodes and to transmit barcode data to a computer or another host system. Barcode readers with a single-line laser can be used to scan linear, one-dimensional (1D) barcodes. Some lasers can produce light in an omnidirectional pattern to allow scanning of barcodes from different angles. Other barcode readers contain CCD (charge-coupled device) light sensors instead of a laser for accuracy and wear resistance. Barcode scanners with raster scanning, area imaging, and other scanning technologies can allow scanning of two-dimensional (2D) or Portable Document Format 417 (PDF417) barcodes, among other types. Some barcode readers provide onboard flash memory to allow the storage of barcode data before transmitting it to a computer or host system through a USB cable or wireless WLAN or Bluetooth connection. Many barcode readers have a handle for handheld use and come with a stand or a charging cradle for fixed position applications, while others are designed for stationary use on a counter or another flat surface. Some portable readers are small enough to be carried in a pocket or attached to a lanyard. Barcode readers are used at retail checkout counters and other points of sale (POS) locations and in warehouses and shipping facilities.
