DPM Plugin - Honeywell Handheld

DPM Plugin is a DataMatrix decoding software, developed by 2D Technology Group specifically for DPM (“Direct Part Marking”), including Dot Peen, applications.

2DTG offers this decoding software for the Honeywell’s conventional reading platforms Xenon 1900/1902, Granit Scanners, Vuquest 3310g/3320g, Voyager 1400g/1450g/1452g/1602g and N5600 series OEM miniature imaging engines built as an “easy-to-load” datamatrix reader plugin - cost-effective alternative to most DPM reading needs:

Powered by Honeywell’s TotalFreedomTM open-system architecture, DPM Plugin extends the capabilities of the industry-leading imaging platform - Adaptus 6.0 - into DPM area. The product has been certified by the Honeywell for use on this platform. 2DTG is the Honeywell Total FreedomTM Certified Developer.

The DPM Datamatrix Decoder can be pre-installed on select Honeywell imaging products or purchased as a standalone upgrade. As an add-on feature designed specifically for DPM application it leaves all scanner’s standard performance features unimpaired. The use of DPM Plugin makes Adaptus 6.0 platform, in effect, a solid DPM reader for a fraction of cost.

For high density images (cell size less than 5-6 mil) 2DTG offers DPM Adapter - optical addition to the Xenon 1900/1902 scanner designed to extend its capabilities into DPM area..

How to Buy

Download the trial version of the DPM Plugin and follow the “Plugin Installation Instructions” - the Plugin installation should only take about 1-2 minutes (trial version is fully functional but decode output is slightly modified – some characters are replaced with asterisks).

If you already have a Xenon 1900/1902, GranitVuquest 3310g or Voyager 1400g/1450g/1452g/1602g unit and want to extend its capabilities to DPM area:

  1. Request Quote for OEM Pricing (high volume licensing), or
  2. Add to Cart to purchase Plugin license. At the end of the Check-Out process please enter the 10-character Serial Number(s) of your device(s) in the Order Comments window (it is recommended to scan all serial numbers into this window to avoid typos).
  3. License Command Code and License Number (20 characters string) for each submitted Serial number will be e-mailed to you within 24 hours. You can also see this number(s) in “My Account” section of the site (referring to your Order No.) when you logged in.

Scan received License Command Code and your Imager is ready for use (see Plugin Installation Instructions (right column) for detail).

If you do not have those devices - the best solution is to purchase DPM Plugin pre-installed (links below):

 Performance advantages are very well evident from the side-by-side performance comparison with DataMan 7500 and Mobile Hawk - specialized DPM scanners (the samples shown are examples of various materials containing Data Matrix Dot Peen marks on either reflective and rough surfaces or are very low in contrast, which are either extremely difficult or impossible to decode):

Note the length of decoding time if and when the decoding actually takes place, which is delivered with an audible beep and visible green light. Both devices were in the exact same environment and exact same DPM marked samples. In addition, proper handling and reading angle(s) with the devices based on the manufacturers user guidelines based on its illumination and diffusion design.


All N5600 based scanners (Xenon 1900, Xenon 1902, Vuquest3310g), upgraded with DPM Plugin, demonstrate very good DPM performance – on par with the DPM industry leaders: DS3508-DP20185R (Motorola Solutions, Inc.) and  DataMan 7500 (Cognex Corp.). 

  • Advanced DPM performance for a fraction of DPM platform cost
  • Automatic "digital auto-focus" for poor quality images
  • Best "Performance-to-Price Ratio"
  • Easy software installation on already deployed scanners
