SG20 General-Purpose Handheld Scanner FEATURES & BENEFITS Available with 2D imaging technology for highly responsive, dependable scanning. Distinctive, ergonomic styling maximizes comfort and saves countertop space. Large LED indicator provides effective visual operational feedback. Choice of options matched to your scanning needs: 1D or 2D scan engines, laser- or LED-based aimer, tethered or Bluetooth wireless. Integrates seamlessly with point of sale systems, iOS and Android™ devices, personal computers and common software solutions. Improving customer satisfaction has long been the mission of retailers everywhere, and making the checkout process more efficient is a key area of focus. By providing highly responsive and accurate scanning at checkout, the Honeywell SG20 General-Purpose Handheld Scanner helps you improve the customer experience. The SG20 2D scanner features industry-leading barcode reading technology, with superior motion tolerance. Common 1D and 2D barcodes are scanned easily and consistently so you can serve your customers more quickly. Unlike conventional laser scanners, the SG20 2D scanner supports true omnidirectional scanning of both 1D and 2D barcodes. When combined with best-in-class motion tolerance, this capability means your barcodes scan fast, at almost any orientation. Now, you don’t have to waste time awkwardly repositioning items to get a successful scan. The SG20 family includes a range of models with different communication and scanning capabilities. Select between Bluetooth® wireless for up to 10 meters (32.8 feet) of range or the simplicity of tethered (cabled) connectivity. Choose the scan engine matched to your needs: either 1D (linear), 2D with laser aimer, or 2D with LED aimer ideal for customer-facing applications. Now, you can standardize on a single scanner family across your operation while providing the right solution for your varied applications. The stylish design of the SG20 scanner sets it apart from traditional gun-shaped handheld scanners. Careful attention to detail and extensive usability testing have resulted in a scanner that is not only aesthetically pleasing on any countertop, but also optimized for user comfort with a natural smooth grip and trigger location. The arching profile of the SG20 scanner is perfect for tight spaces and the over-sized multi-color LED provides a bright visual cue to confirm a successful scan, which can be helpful in noisy environments. In fact, the LED can be programmed to match the decor of your storefront. The SG20 affordable, high-performance handheld scanner is available in a range of models suited to the demands of general-purpose countertop scanning.
