Honeywell 3800gHD

The 3800gHD linear-imaging scanner gives you a versatile, economical workflow solution for standard- and high-density (HD) barcode applications. It’s optimized for the HD barcodes commonly found in electronics manufacturing, telecom, aerospace and automotive. The 3800gHD scanner also features a compact design and class-leading durability.


The 3800gHD linear-imaging scanner features an ideal balance of performance, durability, and ergonomics that make it a reliable solution for a broad range of light industrial environments.

Based on the proven 3800g platform, we optimized the 3800gHD scanner for applications that use the high-density (HD) barcodes commonly found in electronics manufacturing, telecom, aerospace and automotive.

The 3800gHD scanner also gives you a high-performance solution for scanning standard-density barcodes, providing ideal versatility for mixed barcode applications. Plus, you get the added value of swipe action PDF417 decoding, extending the device’s data capture capability.

Equipped with the 3800gHD scanners, your workflows will benefit from fast, intuitive barcode reading across a range of high and low density codes. It even makes it easy for your workers to scan and read damaged or poorly printed barcodes.

Compact, ergonomic design and class-leading durability, coupled with aggressive reading performance, makes the new 3800gHD the ideal choice for customers who appreciate a reliable, versatile, and economical solution to meet their scanning needs.
