Focus Barcode Scanner
The Honeywell Focus has reached end of life.
The Honeywell 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 solution.
Honeywell makes scanning ID cards and Drivers License barcodes a snap with the Easy ID option. Easy ID is a quick and easy on-board software tool to parse drivers license information in customizable formats. Supports over 45 US states.
The Honeywell Focus has reached end of life. We recommend the Honeywell Xenon 1900 as a suitable replacement.

Honeywell Focus Reviews
"The Focus would be a great choice for medium and high volume retail environments and health care. The Focus has 2D capabilities for anyone interested in incorporating security, customer validation, or other uses of 2D barcodes. Even if you do not need 2D capabilities, the First Flash feature and aggressive scan engine make it a good choice for high volume settings. "
