SG20 2D Barcode Scanner

The Intermec SG20 2D has reached end of life. It has been replaced by the Honeywell Xenon XP 1950g.

This product replaces the older Intermec SG10T.

The Intermec SG20 barcode scanner provides aggressive 2D scanning in a unique, lightweight body, great for high volume retail or healthcare applications. The high speed 2D imager in the SG20 will keep data collection running smoothly and efficiently, giving you more time to focus on your customers.

Built for quick retail scanning, the SG20 can read standard UPC barcodes from up to a foot away, eliminating searching for the "sweet spot" and training employees on proper scanning technique. The SG20 can even read in daylight, giving you greater options for scanning during sidewalk sales or in bright garden center environments.

The SG20's lightweight and rugged design gives it the durability necessary for success in even rough retail environments. An IP30 seal protects the internal components from dirt and other particulates, and the scanner is reinforced to withstand multiple drops of 4 feet to concrete. Shipping with a 5-year warranty, the Intermec SG20 barcode scanner will provide your business with many years of fantastic service.

SG20 Barcode Scanner Video

Hi this is Camille with Today we're taking a look at Intermec's SG20T. This is a 2D imager which is fast and highly configurable. It would be great for high volume retail and has some kind of interesting and unique features that we'd like to cover today. As mentioned earlier the SG20T can scan 1D and 2D barcodes. Those are some smaller ones with a lot of data so it's reading that right now. It can go down as far as 4 mil size. And that is 7 mil as an example of how small that actually is. It can read PDF417s and also this book has some interesting configurations which you can get right out of the box for reading damaged barcodes. So see how messed up those barcodes are, if I enable damaged barcode reading I can scan that kind of barcode pretty consistently. We also noticed that the damaged 1D enabling seems to help with reading barcodes on screens so while it's not necessarily intended for reading off of cell phones it works pretty well that way. Because this is a 2D imager bright lights don't really affect the barcode scanner itself. It will scan just fine in bright light. And for the range it gets about 12 inches away from the barcode scanner but.. yeah it's about 12 inches maybe a little bit more. And then it gets down to about 2, 2 inches away. And you can see that targeting reticle it's a very unique targetting reticle with the white light and then the red borders that show where the barcode should be when you scan. That red beam right there is only a guide, this is actually an omni-directional scanner so you don't need to line it up with the barcode you can scan from any direction and it should scan the barcode just fine.

In the configuration utility you can change the color of this LED. It can go from dark blue to pink to purple to red whatever is going to best fit your branding. You can also shut the light off if you don't need that in your store. There are configuration utilities provided by intermec that make this a very easy process and it just turns into a matter of printing out a barcode or scanning it off the screen.

So the SG20T is very well suited for high volume retail it also does have a health care model which is healthcare white but the scanner itself has an IP30 seal so it wouldn't be ideal for a location where it might get wet. We really like it, it's one of our favorite new scanners out right now. It's got some intersting high tech kind of features with the changeable color on the barcode scanner and the unique easy to use targetting reticle. It has a five year warranty and is available in the grey or the white. If you would like to purchase the SG20T or just want more information give us a call at
