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 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.
Designed with high stakes environments in mind, a rugged retail scanner can withstand greater abuse than a standard retail scanner. Advanced optics allow these scanners to read dirty, damaged, or difficult to scan barcodes easily in a variety of lighting settings. Stronger build quality ensures these devices will hold up under most abuse. They are fantastic as secondary scanners in grocery or hardware stores, or as the main scanner in outdoor or rough retail environments.
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.
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.
A mobile barcode scanner pairs to your mobile computer, laptop, iPhone, Android phone, or other Bluetooth-equipped devices, giving you advanced scanning in a small and economical design. These scanners are fantastic choices for mobile POS, small inventory management, or any application where you need to scan barcodes but don´t necessarily want a complete cordless scanner package. POSMicro carries a wide variety of mobile barcode scanners from great manufacturers including Motorola, Unitech, CipherLab, and Socket.
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.
PDA barcode scanners plug directly into your mobile computer or PDA, usually via a CF or SD card slot. These add barcode scanning functionality to any device, often a more economical choice than buying a complete mobile computer.
