A barcode scanner is an electronic device that can read and transmit barcodes to a computer or a host device. Like a flatbed scanner, it consists of a light source, a lens and a light sensor translating optical impulses into electrical ones.
A simple barcode scanner will act as an input device, meaning it will scan the details of the barcode into the field of your software/computer. There are more features available as your budget increases.
There are lots of points to consider when choosing a barcode scanner as listed below
- 1D scanning only (typical barcodes)
- 2D scanning required (like QR codes)
- Omnidirectional (scans from all angles like a supermarket scanner)
- Wired Scanner, eg USB
- Bluetooth Scanner to connect to ipad, tablet, laptop, phone
- WLAN to connect to your network
- Batch scanning (being able to scan a lot of barcodes and download them to a CSV file)
- Being able to run an APP or program on the scanner, this is where you are looking at more of a mobile computer
