Captuvo SL22 for iPod Mobile Barcode Scanner

The Honeywell Captuvo SL22 for iPod has reached end of life.

This product replaces the older iPDT380-2 for iPod.

The Honeywell Captuvo SL22 converts your 4th or 5th generation iPod touch into a fantastic data capture device. A great combination of advanced scanning, integrated power, and credit card reading make the Captuvo SL22 a great choice for retailers wanting to add mobile POS, inventory management, or line busting to their business.

Built with Honeywell's Adaptus 6.0 imager built in, the Captuvo SL22 provides excellent barcode scanning compared to the iPod Touch camera. 1D and 2D barcodes are scanned quickly and easily, speeding up the inventory management or checkout process tremendously. EasyDL driver's license parsing makes data capture for customer loyalty processes easy and error-free. An optional integrated card reader is available, giving you hardware-encrypted credit card reads and turning your iPod Touch into a complete mobile POS device.

Honeywell designed the Captuvo SL22 to add tremendous functionality while maintaining the performance you've come to expect from both Honeywell and Apple products. An integrated battery powers the integrated scanner and optional card reader, ensuring maximum uptime for your device. The sled also provides some added protection, able to survive drops of 4-feet to concrete and with an IP30 seal to protect the scanner from dirt.

  • Compatible with 4th or 5th Gen iPod Touch

  • Adaptus 2D imager
  • EasyDL support for drivers license parsing
  • Security screw keeps iPod Touch securely in Captuvo

Honeywell Captuvo iPod Sled Video

This is Travis with Today we're taking a look at the Honeywell Captuvo Sled. Uh, this is for taking your iPod Touch and making it into a mobile computer with scanning capabilities. It slides in to the top, connects, and latches down. Once that's done, it has an mag-stripe reader built in, the camera can still be accessed, and you have a scanner on top of it. This is your power button. Slide to unlock, and your iPod works just as before.

There's a couple free programs that come with Captuvo. They have limited usability. One of them is basically just to test the functionality of the Captuvo. Press the scan and you can see the reticle. It has the green beam reticle for lining up, and is a 2D scanner, so even though the beam is just horizontal, you can scan it at any direction. The default program basically will lookup whatever barcode you scan and sort of tell you what it is. So it's kind of a price-checking application.

The scan engine though is pretty aggressive. Like I said, it's omni-directional. You can scan it any way you want. You can get pretty close to out 2, maybe 3 feet away. It does 2D barcodes as well, uh, PDF417 will probably be your most common barcode scanned if you're gonna be doing licenses, maybe data-metric--matrix or QR codes for shipping applications. Using it outdoors, it's an imager so bright light won't affect it.

The other program that's available on the market for it is the Captuvo Lite, and what it does is it creates a browser scenario where you have your little address bar there and you can put in a website, and then scan into the website. It's not quite as useful as Safari, so if there's any features that you are used to in Safari, such as bookmarking, this doesn't do it. But you can go a website and scan into your website. So if your company has a company website, you can go do it.

If you want a custom program, our programming department at POSGuys is capable of providing that. So just contact us, let us know your specifications, and we'll be happy to quote you out a custom program. Custom programs can be as cheap as a couple hundred dollars if you just want to use a company website and you want the browser just to go straight to the website, scan into a certain field. If you want to do more advanced lookup, or connect to a database, um, that would require additional programming, and is quoted on a per job basis, so please just contact sales and let us know.

Uh, this is in the browser, I have the search field highlighted for and we'll scan a barcode, and then it just fills in the text field, and search away. Mag-stripe is built into it as well, it's a three-track reader if your application supports credit cards or employee cards with mag-stripes, it is available as well. But the big feature that's gonna be used is the scanner on top. It is not a wedge device though, so you can't just use the scanner in any existing application, the application has to have the Captuvo SDK built into it to scan. It does not work with iCody either which is a popular alternative for some of our other sleds.

The sled itself has a drop spec, but it doesn't increase the drop spec of the iPod Touch, so it's not a Otterbox, it won't increase your durability, but itself, it won't get damaged if you do happen to drop the sled. There is a battery built into it as well so that it doesn't draw from the battery of the iPod. There also is a USB port on it, micro USB, so if you need to charge the device, you don't have to take it out of the sled, you can just plug in a micro USB cable and charge it that way. You have access to the main Apple buttons, trigger buttons are on the side. As far as charging goes, there is the micro USB, or sleds are available to charge the Captuvo unit independently.
