Honeywell International has released its newest rugged linear barcode scanner, the 3820i Industrial Cordless Linear Imager. The unit is designed for use in manufacturing, backroom retail, warehouse and distribution and extreme industrial environments, both indoors and outdoors. Containing no moving parts, it is equipped with Adaptus Imaging Technology 5.0 software. Sold with a three-year warranty, the 3820i has been tested to withstand 50 drops onto hard concrete from six and a half feet, simulating standard industrial conditions. It is water- and dust-resistant, able to withstand temperatures ranging from below freezing to extreme heat, while providing sufficient power to read barcodes that are dirty or damaged by intense environments. An adjustable "good-read" beep, coupled with highly visible dual LEDs, let workers know that they have successfully captured scans, even where noisy conditions prevail. The unit's battery works for 50,000 scans or more than 16 hours, according to Honeywell. Wireless communication is handled via Bluetooth v.2.0, allowing a maximum range of 33 feet between scanner and base. Up to seven of the units can connect to a single base, the company said.
