Barcode scanners are available for a wide range of applications, including keyboard wedges, fixed scanners, 2d handhelds. Scanning technologies used include laser, ccd, and lightpen. Barcode scanners are manufactured by Motorola, Intermec, Datalogic, and Honeywell Imaging and Mobility.
Barcode verifiers provide assurance that the barcodes printed will be scannable at their destination, or through the distribution channel. Some retail customers have implemented significant monetary fines for unreadable barcodes. Barcode verifiers are either pen type or laser based, and are manufactured by Honeywell Imaging and Mobility.
Barcode scanners provide dramatically improved speed and accuracy in data input operations. An operator keying in data will make a mistake every 200 entries on average; whereas an operator with a barcode scanner will make a mistake every 1,000,000+ scans.
Barcode scanners can be handheld or fixed, connect to a wide variety of terminal or computer models. These scanners, depending upon model, can scan one dimensional barcodes or two dimensional codes like the ones at the top of this page.
