Hand Held Scanners

Hand-held Scanners


Hand-held scanners are applicable in all retail areas. To collect barcodes, the scanner is manually brought close to the barcode. Some manufacturers offer additional automatic barcode collection by putting the scanner into a pedestal/cradle (e.g.Honeywell Voyager)


Diverse Scanning Technologies make the crucial distinction:

CCD > inexpensive entry for 1D barcodes

Laser scanners > fast collection at various distances incl. curved surfaces

Omni directional > complete scanning field for passing Barcodes by the scanner

2D Imager > new photo technology for collecting 1D- and 2D-Codes
