ADI Celebrates 15 Years of Technology

February marks a milestone for Adaptive Data . . . our 15th anniversary, though unofficially we've been around for longer than that.  ADI takes a fun look at technology; past present and future and weighs in how the Internet of Things is a game changer.

Battery-Free Wireless Scanning With Honeywell Voyager

Bar code scanning technologies continue to evolve.  Recently Honeywell, a leader in bar code scanning technologies, launched the Voyager 1202g-bf, a wireless scanner that doesn’t require a battery. 

Using Supercapacitors as an Alternate Power Source

Instead of a lithium-ion battery, the Voyager 1202g-bf is powered by supercapacitors (i.e. ultracapacitors); a power source commonly used in industrial products.  Supercapacitors are an energy storage technology, but until now, were not a viable option for bar code scanners or other handheld products because they were too big.  Honeywell has adapted the technology and the result is a scanner that has widespread application in business.

Why Battery-Free Wireless Scanning Makes Sense?

Time and Cost Savings Advantages

The Voyager 1202g-bf can be fully charged in 35 seconds or less which: 

  • Eliminates the need to have spare batteries or scanners for use when a battery-powered scanner needs to be charged
  • Eliminates the need to take a scanner out of service for an extended period of time to be recharged

Unmatched Performance

The scanning performance of the Voyager 1202b-bf matches that of a battery powered scanner in speed and responsiveness in decoding less than optimum bar codes.  The scanner has a performance range of up to 33 feet from the base.    

Environmentally Friendly

Using a supercapacitor as the source of power eliminates the need to adhere to guidelines for recycling and/or disposal of used batteries making them an environmentally superior alternative to batteries.
