Reading barcodes of smartphone screens

Honeywell’s Voyager 1602g

Honeywell’s compact Voyager 1602g is equipped with high performance barcode scanning technology found in full-size handheld scanners

The ergonomically designed Voyager 1602g scanner can be coupled with tablet-based retail POS systems, mobile point-of-sale solutions, inventory management, backroom/stockroom, in-store customer engagement and even non-retail scanning applications such as transportation applications and sales force automation.

“The workers of today are not desk bound, or tied to one station. They are moving throughout a retail store, or warehouse or on a delivery route and need technologies that enable mobile productivity and accuracy,” said Manan Arora, product marketing manager, scanning, Honeywell Sensing and Productivity Solutions. “The Voyager 1602g scanner will allow mobile workers across a variety of sectors to accurately record the movements of goods in an easy and efficient way.”

Featuring an oversized scan button, soft touch plastics, white LED aimer and a lightweight design, the Voyager 1602g makes scanning easy. The device is capable of reading barcodes of smartphone screens — mobile coupons, eTickets, digital wallets and digital loyalty cards.

The Voyager 1602g incorporates Bluetooth wireless technology that allows freedom of movement of up to 10 metres, and a user-replaceable battery tested to last for 2,250 scans in a single twelve-hour shift, which can be rechargeable on a standard micro USB. Designed to meet a business’s evolving data capture needs, the Voyager 1602g can also be cost-effectively upgraded to 2D scanning anytime in the future.
