Next Generation Linear Scanner Showcases Honeywell Leadership, Innovation in Data Collection Market
Fort Mill, S.C. – January 6, 2011 – Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today announced the introduction of the Voyager® 1200g linear scanner (buy here from Legacy Technology Services), a device designed to deliver superior scanning performance and unmatched readability on poor quality or damaged bar codes. An evolution of the world’s best-selling single-line scanner, the Voyager 1200g shortens read time, improves productivity and minimizes human error associated with manual data entry. With the Voyager 1200g, retailers are able to improve throughput, leading to a more efficient retail environment with shorter wait times, and ultimately increased customer and employee satisfaction.
“There are billions of bar codes scanned every day, each of which contains different characteristics that may make readability difficult. At Honeywell, we’ve found this to be a real pain point for our end users,” said Taylor Smith, director of product management-scanning, Honeywell Scanning & Mobility. “The Voyager 1200g excels at reading any type of linear bar code, damaged or otherwise, and is a testament to Honeywell’s leadership within the scanning industry and our continued drive to produce innovative offerings for our customers.”
The Voyager 1200g was designed specifically with retailers and small and medium businesses (SMBs) in mind, as it provides superior reliability with an IP42 rating and fewer components, leading to decreased downtime and service costs. In addition, the Voyager 1200g simplifies installation by providing automatic configuration of the device based on detection of the type of interface cable, as well as the presence or absence of a stand. This unique capability, along with tool-free stand assembly, combines to deliver a superior out-of-box experience for Voyager 1200g users.
Finally, the Voyager 1200g pairs the quality of an industry-leading product with an attractive price point, which is especially important for SMBs.
The Voyager 1200g has the ability to read standard 1D and GS1 DataBar™ symbologies, and functions as either a hands-free presentation or a traditional hand-held scanner.
