The Granit 1910i is Honeywell’s first industrial scanner to use Adaptus 6.0 imaging technology. It features a sturdy design and performance ideal for rough use.

Typical uses and environments:

Honeywell’s Adaptus 6.0 imaging technology powers the Granit 1910i, providing fast scans of virtually any barcode. The durable build of the scanner makes it a great fit for warehouses, manufacturing applications, or incredibly rough retail environments, such as hardware stores or garden centers.

Standard Features & Advantages:

Industrial scanners are usually designed to be easy to see from a distance, and the Granit 1910i’s combination of bright red with grey accents fits that standard. The scanner comes by itself, though Honeywell offers USB kits as well.

The scanner does have some heft to it, as do other scanners in its class. Thankfully, Honeywell balanced it well, giving the Granit 1910i a good ergonomic feel.

To aid in aiming, the Granit 1910i features a 5-point aiming reticle, with four lines to identify the scanning boundary and a plus in the middle. Upon successful scan, the scanner emits a loud beep as well as flashes the LED on the back of the head.

Unique Advantages:

The Granit 1910i features a new method for alerting users to successful scans. A motor in the handle of the unit vibrates, giving users a tactile response to scans, terrific when in loud or bright areas where the audible beep and LED on the back of the scanner aren’t easily noticed.


The only drawback we encountered is that currently there is only the Extended Range model available. The scan engine is terrific for general scanning, but it does have some difficulty on dense or smaller barcodes.

Performance Testing:

To test the performance of the Honeywell Granit 1910i, we ran it through a battery of tests, including scan range testing, barcode density, barcode width, and durability. We tested 1910IER-3USB, the extended range imager model with USB interface cable included. Our testing determined the scanner to perform well for its intended use.

Adaptus 6.0 Imaging Technology has been implemented in Honeywell’s Xenon 2D scanner, as well as many of their mobile computers. In the Granit 1910i, Honeywell tuned the imager for industrial performance, extending the scan range and scanning capabilities. In their marketing collateral, Honeywell claims the Granit 1910i can scan standard retail barcodes from 0.6” to 21.4”, which we were able to confirm in house. The range extends greatly on larger barcodes, and we were able to scan our 100 mil reflective label from more than twenty feet away.

In light testing, the Granit 1910i was able to scan in all lighting environments, including direct sunlight. We were even able to scan barcodes with the illuminating LEDs blocked, showing off the scan engine’s aggressive design.

Durability is key for industrial scanners, and the Granit 1910i is no exception. We froze our Granit 1910i in a block of ice and the unit was able to function properly. The scanner survived multiple drops from 3 feet and 6 feet to concrete, only displaying some scuffing. In an attempt to exceed the limitations of the scanner, we drove over it with a pickup truck. Unfortunately, in driving over the scanner, we damaged the imager sensor, rendering the Granit 1910i unusable. However, Honeywell’s Service Made Simple comprehensive coverage plan is fully comprehensive, and we were able to send the scanner back and get a replacement.

A breakdown of the Honeywell Granit 1910i’s capabilities is listed in table and graph form below.

The Honeywell Granit 1910i is a terrific addition to any industrial scanning application. The fast scan engine will keep data capture moving quickly, and the durable design should handle almost any damage it could experience. We do recommend the Service Made Simple comprehensive coverage plans, as they are remarkably affordable for the amount of coverage you get.
