Honeywell 3800r

The 3800r linear image barcode scanner is designed specifically for retail applications, delivering the right balance of scanning performance, connectivity and durability. In fact, it’s one of the most powerful imagers we've ever introduced. You can rely on the 3800r scanner to deliver high barcode scanning accuracy and decoding support.

Our exclusive imaging technology makes the 3800r linear imager an outstanding performer. In fact, it’s one of the most powerful imagers we've ever introduced. Designed for retail applications, the 3800r scanner excels at reading range and reading poor quality barcodes. It’s extremely durable too.

Many retail applications benefit from greater reading range. Large, heavy packages are often left in the shopping cart at checkout. Product inventory often sit high atop shelves. In both cases, your workers can struggle to read barcodes that are out of reach. The 3800r linear imager solves that problem.

Just out-of-reach products aren’t out of range for the 3800r scanner. It extends the scanning range as far out as 61 cm (24 in) on 13 mil barcodes. That’s sure to reduce operator strain. It can also reduce costly problems.

For example, workers often must resort to manually entering data when they encounter a poor quality barcode. That’s because less capable scanners struggle to read these barcodes, or simply cannot read them at all. Manual entry increases your data collection costs and introduces costly errors that you must trace and correct. The 3800r scanner is different.

The 3800r device incorporates an innovative software digitizer that greatly enhancing its ability to decode poor quality barcodes. And that greatly reduces the need for manual entry, which increases your team's efficiency.
