Warehouse & Distribution, Transportation, and Logistics rely heavily on barcode scanners in day-to-day business. As technology continues to evolve and redefine the parameters of what can be achieved, it raises the bar on expectations across the board—from performance and production to quality and accuracy. To stay competitive, it’s more important than ever to choose a barcode scanner solution with the capacity to meet specific application requirements—better, cheaper, and faster than the rest, while generating ROI.

The solution? Honeywell’s Granit 198xi barcode scanner. It is a full-range imaging scanner that provides outstanding performance, durability, and usability. The Granit 198xi features class-leading depth-of-field and durability for the toughest and most extreme environments.

Single-solution barcode scanner out-performs the competition

There’s a lot going on in warehouse and distribution center environments, which is why it’s common to see multiple purpose-built barcode scanners in use. While it seems more efficient to assign a specific style scanner to a specific job, this strategy actually hinders performance and overall productivity.

By upgrading to one barcode scanner solution across the workforce you gain greater visibility into production and can easily monitor performance.

The Granit 198xi can consolidate and outperform current scanners. Equipped with an EX25 engine, it can scan virtually all 1D and 2D barcodes out to 55 ft (16.5 m), or as close as 6 in (15 cm), with ease. As the market leader in scanning performance, the Granit 198xi barcode scanners provides better low contrast/damaged barcode reading.

Built and tested for extreme durability

The Granit 198xi features the most rugged enclosure of any barcode scanner offered by Honeywell. Built and tested to perform in the toughest environments, the Granit is rated IP65*  and can withstand 5,000 tumbles from 3.2 ft. (1 m) and 50 drops to concrete from 6.5 ft. (2 m). Both the scanner and cable can withstand up to -30˚C (-22˚F), ideal for cold storage environments.

The Granit 198xi takes the guesswork out of scanning—all barcode types, every direction

Featuring an integrated laser pointer aiming system with auto-illumination and support for centering, the Granit truly takes the guesswork out of scanning any type of barcode: vertical, horizontal—it even has omni-directional reading capabilities to scan barcodes that run sideways, upside down and any other direction. Further, it provides accurate readings at any range

The Granit barcode scanner is available in corded and cordless versions with complete accessory range. The cordless version features a Bluetooth Class 1 radio which enables movement up to 300’ (100m) from base and reduces interference with other wireless systems.

*The Ingress Protection (IP) rating is used to specify the environmental protection of enclosures around electronic equipment. The first number, based on a scale 0-6, represents the degree of protection against solid objects and the second, based on a scale 0-8, against liquids. For both, 0 indicates no protection.
