Settings for the Xenon 1902g-bf

Xenon 1902g-bf Battery Free Barcode Scanner are in distribution and we are providing help here on factory defaults and tools to make it happen.  First, here are terms to understand.

  • Factory Defaults:  The scanner’s settings that are done at the factory during manufacturing.
  • Custom Defaults:  Any changes to the scanner’s setting that one makes permanent.  Making changed settings permanent will be the topic of a future Scanner Gram.  Once Custom Defaults are set up/saved – they become “Factory Defaults”.
  • Data Formatting:  Program the scanner to edit, delete, append scanned data.

Defalt
Scanning this barcode sets your scanner back to factory default including getting rid of any special Data Formatting you have your scanner doing.  If there are any saved Custom Defaults (See above Custom Defaults) scanning this barcode takes the scanner back to your saved Custom Defaults – not all the way to true Honeywell Factory Default.

Defovr
Scanning this barcode clears any Custom Defaults that have been saved to your scanner – but that’s all it does.  It does not send your scanner back to Honeywell Factory Default.  Note one VERY important item – DEFOVR will disable plugins (EasyDL, Easy BCBP, etc.) and you may need to reach out to tech support to re-enable them.So if you are not sure what your scanner has been through, and you are sure the scanner has no plugins, and you want to get it back to true Factory Default – scan Defovr then Defalt.

DFmca3
Dfmca3 is the command that clears any Data Formatting you’ve programmed your scanner to do. It does not clear any scanner settings or send your scanner back to Factory Default.

 

Using the Xenon 1902g-bf scanner manual you can add commands with a simple barcode scan.

Scanners can multi-task. Your scanner professional can share codes and information on how your simple bar code reader can make your application and workers more productive. Contact a Honeywell Specialist at BarcodeFactory for help.

Determining which labels you need for a new labeling application can be confusing. You don’t want to get it wrong and find the label does not meet weather or chemical exposure requirements. Here are some simple questions you can start with to determine the right label.

1. What is the printer make & model these will be printed in, (if any)? (Or roll OD and core size or sheet size)

2. Does your label require a ribbon to print or not? Is your printer capable of using a ribbon? Your label is either Direct Thermal or Thermal Transfer.

3.  What resistance does it require? (Moisture, oil, grease, alcohol, abrasion)

4.  In what environment will it exist?  (Outdoors, outdoors covered, indoors)

5.  What surface will it stick to? (Corrugate, paper, packaging rims, plastic, metal, glass, rough surface, curved surface, moist surface)

6. Does it need to come off at any given point with little or no residue?

7. Is there any pre-printing needed, on front of label, back of labels or on label liner.

8. What size do you need? Width x Length (length measurement increases as the roll is unwound)

Answering these questions will eliminate many headaches, greatly reduce your cost and provide you with the best possible label. There are hundreds of different types of labels that will meet your requirements.

Other factors that determine how your label will print:

  • Ribbon Type
  • Print head DPI
  • Size of Text
  • Amount of Copy on the Label
  • Amount of Detail on the Label

Other specific details you will need to know:

  • Core Size .75″, 1″, 1.5″, 2″, 3
  • Label Width and Length
  • Quantity (Quantity per Roll)
  • Do you need perforations between each label
  • Outer Diameter (will it fit in your printer?)
  • Annual usage (how many labels per day?)

Hint: Bigger is Better  If your printer only holds a 5″ Outer Diameter Roll, consider buying a Roll Holder that accommodates an 8″ Roll. This inexpensive attachment, sits behind the printer and feeds labels in through the open feed slot. Larger O.D. labels are less expensive than smaller ones!

Hint: Cases Quantities  It is always less expensive per roll to purchase case quantities of labels (and thermal ribbon)! Many suppliers also offer buyer loyalty discounts fro annual purchases. Great distributors will even hold onto your labels in their warehouse until you need them. Just make the call.

Best Hint: Call a Great Supplier!  Buying labels is not like buying vitamins online! You can save yourself a lot or work by finding a good supplier and sticking with them. Don;t just go on their website and try it alone, CALL THEM! They can answer every question and you will have the opportunity to get a better price!

The labeling industry is a multi-billion dollar business and regardless of your application, there is a label material out there that will meet your needs.
