Warehouse workers have a lot of ground to cover throughout their work shifts, making it tedious and time-consuming to manually scan every item. Imperfect conditions and difficult-to-reach items create additional challenges in the effort to keep track of all warehouse inventory.
To improve workplace efficiency, Honeywell has released Granit 1280i, an industrial-grade barcode scanner that can read barcodes from short and long distances. The Granit 1280i reads 100 millimeter retro-reflective labels from as far away as 54 feet (16.5 meters) and 7.5 millimeter codes as close as 3.5 inches (8.9 centimeters).
The scanner also is designed to withstand difficult warehouse conditions. The product was tested to sustain more than 5,000 one-meter drops and 50 drops from two-meters to the concrete. Additionally, the scanner has been built to survive more than 300,000 cable bends at a 90 degree angle at -30 degrees Celsius, making it an appropriate full-range scanner for cold storage environments.
Granit 1280i also offers convenience for IT administrators seeking to manage scanners within their network from a single remote location.
“With an increased demand to read barcodes that are located off the ground as well as medium density barcodes found on cartons and documentation, we needed an industrial solution with superior scanning capabilities,” said Rad DeRose, President of L-Tron Corporation. “Honeywell’s Granit 1280iFR meets and exceeds our customers’ expectations as a durable full-range scanner that survives tough conditions inside the four walls of the warehouse.”
