Bringing together the technologies of both Honeywell and Intermec RF scanners is the new Granit 1280iFR device, introduced in the companies’ shared exhibit (Booth 4518).

The unit features near/far scanning capabilities that enable 1D bar code reads at distances up to 54 feet, in a ruggedly engineered unit, designed to withstand harsh environments, said Bruce Stubbs, director of industry marketing at Intermec by Honeywell.

“This rugged device is ideal for refrigerated and freezer applications in particular,” he added. “It’s IP65-rated to remain sealed against condensation and resist fogging and frosting on the scan face. Its rugged construction can also withstand repeated drops to frozen concrete floors.”

Also on display is Vocollect’s new Talkman A720 voice-directed picking device equipped with two TCO connectors. “Having two connectors supports wired headsets and other peripherals, such as long-range scanners,” said Jay Armant, VP of product management for Vocollect by Honeywell.

Armant also highlighted the new release of VoiceCatalyst 2.1 software. It is targeted to existing Vocollect customers still using the company’s original VoiceClient software platform.

“This new solution runs users’ existing task-based workflows with no back-end changes, while enabling them to apply some of our newest features,” Armant added. “These include SoundSense speech recognition booster that blocks unwanted ambient noise, and TouchConnect that pairs our SRX2 wireless headset with the device for fast start-up.”

Modex 2014 is scheduled to be held March 17-20, 2014 in Atlanta’s Georgia World Conference Center. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry. Modern’s complete Modex 2014 coverage.
