Barcode Readers and Accessories
Often referred to as a barcode scanner, a barcode reader is an electronic device that captures the data that is stored in barcode images that are found printed on product packaging.
Barcode readers are typically used in unison with a host computer where the data is transferred for the interpretation and storage of the captured data. Barcode readers help reduce human error, automating the data collection process and helping to speed up activities such as inventory tracking, stock management and sales.
Barcodes are commonly found in 2 variants, 1D and 2D and an appropriate scanner is need to read them. A 1D barcode scanner reads linear barcodes, which are typically found on retail packaging and can be read by any type of barcode scanner. 2D barcodes are more complex containing more information in less space than a 1D code, and a dedicated 2D scanner is required to read them. 2D barcode scanners can also read damaged barcodes and 1D versions and are therefore more practical.
Barcode scanners are found in multiple applications, from the retail sector capturing stock information to processing sales at the cash till.
