Overview

This article goes through how to place various models of the Honeywell flatbed scanners into a power saving or sleep mode. Full hardware manuals available below.

 

Honeywell MS2320/2420 StratosH Scanner/Diva Scale

The Honeywell MS2320 and MS2420 both have five configurable power save modes. By default, it will be set to #5, Dual Action Power Save Mode #2. See next section on how to set the amount for the “configured period of non-use”.

  1. Blink Power Save Mode:
    1. Blinks the laser OFF & ON after a configured period of non-use. When the scanner recognizes a bar code it will exit the Blink mode.
  2. Laser Off Power Save Mode:
    1. Turns the laser OFF after a configured period of non-use. The motor continues to spin allowing for a faster “wake” up time. Any movement detected by the IR will “wake” the scanner from the Laser Off Power Save Mode.
  3. Laser & Motor Off Power Save Mode:
    1. Turns the laser and motor OFF after a configured period of non-use. Any movement detected by the IR will “wake” the scanner from this mode. The “wake” time is slightly longer due to the motor’s need to restart.
  4. Dual Action Power Save Mode #1:
    1. “Blinks” the laster OFF & ON after a configured period of non-use. Turns the laser and motor OFF at thirty-minute intervals.
  5. Dual Action Power Save Mode #2 (Default):
    1. Turns the laser OFF after a configured period of non-use then turns the motor OFF after thirty-minute intervals.

 

Configuring the Idle Time for Power Save Mode

In the above modes, it triggers after a set configured period of non-use. It can be set to 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, or 30 minutes by scanning the barcodes below. This is only for the Honeywell MS2320/2420.

 

Honeywell Stratos 2700

Power Save Mode allows users to automatically set the conditions under which the scanner idles, sleeps, and wakes up. When Off is selected, no power saving is used and the scanner remains powered on until the Sound button is pressed.

When Sleep Mode is selected, the scanner goes into sleep mode (all components are powered off) after the time interval.

When Hibernate Mode is selected, the scanner goes into idle mode (laster, motor, and micro are off) after the time interval, during which there is no activity. After the same time interval has passed with no activity while the scanner is in idle mode, the scanner goes into sleep mode (all components are powered off).
