Retail Barcode Scanner
A retail barcode scanner will handle the day-to-day rigors of most medium volume retail environments. Available with auto-sense stands, these scanners give you the option of both presentation scanning and handheld scanning in a single device. Although they are not as durable as rugged retail or industrial scanners, a retail barcode scanner will provide you many years of terrific service.
Economy Barcode Scanner
Economy handheld scanners are best suited for light-to-medium scanning volumes and are generally not ruggedized for industrial use. These affordable scanners are a terrific fit for libraries, small office inventory management, retail boutiques, or anywhere you might not scan many barcodes in quick succession.
2D Area Imager
2D area imagers offer greater functionality over standard barcode scanners. With the ability to scan 1D, 2D, stacked, or composite barcodes, even those on LCD screens, 2D imagers are an ideal choice for future-proofing data collection at your business. Certain models can also parse drivers license barcode data, excellent for error free customer information entry.
Cordless Barcode Scanner
With a cordless barcode scanner, you gain additional freedom of movement not available with cabled handheld scanners. Available as 1D scanners or 2D imagers, these devices offer the same functionality as a cabled scanner, ensuring no loss in performance. Bluetooth radios in most of these scanners give you the added option of pairing to a smartphone, mobile computer, or laptop, providing advanced barcode scanning capabilities on the go.
Contact or Wand Barcode Scanner
Contact or wand scanners are an economical choice for low volume scanning, such as in a library or smaller retailer. Wand scanners work by dragging the scanner across the barcode, sending data once it completes its pass. The optics in contact & wand scanners tend to be not as powerful as retail scanners, resulting in slower scans.
Manual Cash Drawer
Manual cash drawers grant the security of a printer or computer driven cash drawer while giving merchants the option to deploy from any location. Being manually opened by the cash drawer user means they aren’t tied to a printer or computer and as a result they conveniently work with nearly any POS system. Their mobility and flexibility make them ideal for use at festival merchandise booths and mobile concession stands.
