Honeywell 3800i


Honeywell's 3800i Industrial-Grade Linear-Imaging Scanner

 withstands applications that subject it to constant -22°F (-30°C) temperatures

The 3800i hand-held industrial image readers are the first industrial class readers to bring you Honeywell’s industry-leading image technology. This technology allows you to read bar codes at ranges up to 82˝ (208 cm). In real world applications, this extended read range means less climbing and reaching, and more operator productivity.

We are so confident the 3800i image reader will withstand your industrial applications that we have backed it by a solid warranty. Every 3800i comes to you with a three-year warranty against defects. Shock absorbing rubber overmold on the case and a sealed optics module ensure this device will survive dozens of 6.5´ (2 meter) drops to concrete. Although we do not expect you to treat your reader this way, we know it will survive many years of accidental abuse.


  • Rugged Packaging: An impact-absorbing, shockresistant housing withstands fifty 6.5´ (2 meter) drops, and is sealed to prevent dust, moisture, and other contaminants from entering the scanner—designed to survive the most demanding industrial applications
  • Fast and Aggressive Decode: Even on poorly printed or damaged codes, the 270 scans per second digital image logic is over six times faster than other technologies, allowing users to spend less time trying to re-scan poor codes and speed up the work process
  • Superior Read Range: Imaging technology now extends the performance range out to 82˝ (208 cm) on linear codes, eliminating the need to reach and climb to scan codes
  • Durable: There are no moving parts to wear out and Honeywell backs this with an industry-leading three-year warranty, ensuring reliable performance year after year with no downtime
  • Easy-to-Use: True point and shoot hand-held ergonomics easily fits oversized gloved hands, while intuitive aiming means operators will become productive quickly
