Color Area-Imaging Scanner

Xenon 1900h Color

The best option for healthcare professionals to read high contrast color bar codes.

Xenon™ 1900h Color, designed specifically for healthcare users, is redefining the capabilities of hand-held scanners. Honeywell’s sixthgeneration of area-imaging technology features a custom sensor that is optimized for bar code scanning, plus ColorFusion™ Technology which enables color imaging. With industry-leading performance and reliability, Xenon 1900h Color is well suited for a wide variety of healthcare applications that would benefit from the ability to capture color images, including wound management and patient identification.

Color imaging unlocks a new world of functionality. It allows healthcare professionals to read high contrast color bar codes that were previously unreadable, such as a red bar code on a white background.

Additionally, it eliminates the need to use a separate digital camera and external storage media for color image capture and transfer, enabling streamlined workflow and improved productivity, as well as protection of sensitive patient data. Most importantly, Xenon 1900h Color provides color imaging functionality without sacrificing the aggressive bar code scanning performance enabled by Adaptus® Imaging Technology 6.0, ensuring that healthcare institutions can meet the data capture needs of today and tomorrow.

Built with durability in mind, Xenon 1900h Color can withstand up to 50 drops to concrete from distances as high as 6 feet. Additionally, Xenon 1900h Color incorporates disinfectant-ready housing which resists the harmful effects of harsh cleaning agents used commonly in healthcare environments and minimizes the spread of infectious diseases. Backed by a five-year warranty, Xenon 1900h Color is constructed to deliver years of uninterrupted performance.


  • ColorFusion Technology: Allows color images to be captured and high contrast color bar codes to be scanned, without negatively impacting bar code scanning performance
