The Honeywell Metrologic MK1690 Focus is a a high performance rugged hand-held area imager designed for today's retail and industrial markets. Capable of reading both 1D & 2D barcode symbologies.
The MS1690 Focus is an omnidirectional scanner that decodes all of today’s standard bar codes including 1D, GSI DataBarTM, PDF417, microPDF, EAN/UCC Composite, Matrix and Postal Codes regardless of orientation.
Focus™ provides users with increased throughput
for virtually all 1D and 2D bar code reading
applications - including poorly printed or
damaged bar codes - by incorporating high
resolution imaging, FirstFlash™ scanning
technology, and true contact reading into an
affordable barcode solution.
Honeywell Metrologic Focus MK1690 2D Bar Code Scanner is a high performance handheld area imager. This omnidirectional scanner decodes virtually all of today’s standard bar
codes including 1D, RSS, PDF417, microPDF,
EAN/UCC Composite, Matrix and Postal Codes
regardless of orientation. Where image capture is
concerned, Focus combines a high-resolution
CMOS sensor with an extremely powerful
processor to provide a wide array of outputs at
high rates of speed.Honeywell Metrologic MS1690 Focus EasyID™ Software is now called Easy DL software plug-in
Honeywell announced the that their EasyDL™ software plug-in has been enhanced, enabling select area-imaging scanners to parse and decrypt bar code data found on Georgia state licenses for applications involving age verification and automatic electronic form population. Honeywell Scanning & Mobility’s area-imaging scanners now lead the AIDC industry in their ability to scan all U.S. and Canadian driver’s licenses that include PDF417 bar codes. Ohio and Texas are the latest states to include a PDF417 bar code on the back of its licenses, bringing the total number of driver’s licenses that Honeywell supports to 47 states and two Canadian provinces.
Age verification is a federal requirement for retail stores selling age-restricted items such as tobacco, liquor and gambling products. With a quick scan of a customer’s driver’s license, Honeywell’s EasyDL provides retailers with an age verification solution to ensure federal compliance is met. The solution lessens the responsibility placed on the cashier or business owner by eliminating user error associated with manually checking birthdays on identification cards.
Beyond streamlining the age verification process, EasyDL aids retailers in registering customers for loyalty programs. EasyDL software captures data from a scanned license and automatically populates registration forms for rewards programs or mailing lists, resulting in a quicker transaction with improved accuracy and less hassle.
“Honeywell is continuously investing in technology to provide retailers with the most innovative and time-efficient solutions available,” said Taylor Smith, director of product management—scanning, Honeywell Scanning & Mobility. “By utilizing Honeywell’s EasyDL solution, retailers can capture more accurate customer data in less time, thereby increasing customer
satisfaction and retention.”
EasyDL is compatible with the following Honeywell products: Xenon™ 1900, Xenon 1902, Genesis™ 7580, Vuquest™ 4980, Focus® 1690, FocusBT® 1633, and the IS4920. The software plug-in can be pre-installed on select Honeywell area-imaging scanners for out-of-the-box functionality. It can also be purchased as a standalone upgrade for compatible scanners that have already been deployed in the field.Mobile Phone Reading:
- excels at scanning coupons and tickets directly from the screen of a mobile deviceEasy DL software
- parses bar code data found on government-issued identification cards to deliver ready to use information to the host system. The embedded parsing functionality can support applications including age verification or automatic electronic form population. EasyDL is compatible with the MS7580 Genesis™, the MS1690 Focus®, the MS1633 FocusBT®, the MS1890 Focus®, the IS1650 and the IS4920.Reduce Transaction Time by 95%:
- It takes the average person approximately 45 seconds to manually enter license data. In the 2 seconds it takes to scan a license’s bar code, EasyDL achieves the same result.Eliminate Data Entry Error:
- The average person makes one error for every 20 words typed. EasyDL eliminates these costly errors by automatically populating electronic forms.Reduce Liability:
-Protect your company with the capability to provide a full electronic audit trail for situations requiring visual inspection of identification cards.Achieve Regulatory Compliance:
Comply with state, federal and industry regulations regarding the acquisition of personal information by configuring EasyDL to parse bar code data and prevent sensitive information from ever being transmitted to the host system.Honeywell Metrologic MS1690 Focus Quick Specs
