The 3820 combines exclusive Adaptus


Imaging Technology 5.0 with



wireless connectivity to provide class-leading performance

and durability for retail and commercial cordless bar code reading.

In applications where operators must move about to read bar codes,
cables become a limiting factor. They cause inefficiencies or safety and
ergonomic concerns. Cable length often limits working range, resulting
in an object being moved to the reader because the reader can’t be
taken to the object. With wireless bar code reading, operators have
freedom of movement required to quickly, safely, and ergonomically
read bar code data. With a 33 foot (10m) working range and 24 inch
(61cm) read-range, the 3820 has the right combination of performance
and features.

Having the right performance is only part of the solution; staying in
service is just as important. The 3820 also has class-leading durability.
It was designed to survive in real world mobile applications. Honeywell
is committed to creating some of the most rugged products available,
and the 3820 is another example of that commitment. With no moving
parts and a robust housing design, the 3820 will easily provide years
of service in retail and commercial environments, creating a favorable
total cost of ownership.


Wireless Linear-Imaging Scanner


Honeywell’s solid state, no-moving-parts

imager design withstands more than fifty 6 foot (1.8m)

drops to concrete
Unique Base Design offers the following features:

A minimal footprint that is smaller than major

competitors’, simplifying installation and leaving

more counter space for customer service or other

application needs
Presentation scanning with a docked imager for

efficient, hands-free bar code reading
Host-powered interface and RF link; an exclusive

Honeywell feature that extends the mobile

capabilities of the 3820 by drawing power from a

portable device for radio and host communications

Superior Read Range:

Imaging technology now

extends the read range out to 24˝ (610 mm) on the bar

codes used in retail applications
Fast and Aggressive Decode:

Even on poorly printed

or damaged codes, the 270 scans per second scan rate

and software digitizer quickly processes the data and

transmits it to your application
Wireless Connectivity:

Bluetooth v2.0 radio enables

movement up to 33 feet (10 m) from the base, and

reduces interference with other wireless systems—up

to 7 imagers can communicate to 1 base, reducing the

total cost of ownership

A long lasting, field-replaceable, high capacity

lithium ion battery provides up to 57,000 scans per full

charge with no conditioning required
Optional FIPS 140-2 Certified Encryption:


Information Processing Standards (FIPS) certified for

wireless data transmission, meeting advanced US

Government security requirements, and providing enhanced

security in any application involving sensitive data
