Honeywell Sensing and Productivity Solutions has released the Voyager 1602g pocket 2D Bluetooth scanner which delivers affordable, high performance scanning into the hands of
mobile workers.

Honeywell’s compact Voyager 1602g easily fits into the pocket, but 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.

Packaging South Asia is the cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which is scheduled to be held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
