Wireless Scanner Goes Green


Xenon 1902g-bf area-imager scanner eliminates the battery for a green, environmentally friendly solution driven by super-capacitors. The result is a powerhouse solution that is capable of scanning over 450 barcodes on a single charge and can be recharged in less than 60 seconds via a powered USB port.

When fully charged, typically scans over 450 UPC/EAN codes without the need for recharging – enough to check out at least 25 customers during peak periods.

Super-capacitors hold their charge for hours when fully charged. So operators who forget to place the scanner in the charger prior to break won't impact operations upon return.

Two configurable recharge alerts remind you to place the scanner back into the base for charging – and can be set to trigger at different levels of discharge and urgency.

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.

The scanner's wireless technology completely eliminates the battery, replacing it with super-capacitors capable of achieving a full charge in less than two minutes via the USB port (under 30 seconds when using a powered USB port or external wall adapter) and typically providing at least 450 scans on UPC/EAN codes without recharging. This makes the Xenon 1902g-bf scanner ideal for applications centered around POS, workstations and counters – for example, as the secondary scanner to a bioptic (in-counter) scanner, or in support of shipping and receiving functions at warehouses. With no battery, a common maintenance hassle is removed and the scanner is lighter and more environmentally friendly.

Built on the proven Xenon platform, the 1902g-bf scanner offers high-performance linear barcode scanning and the convenience of wireless – all without a battery.
