Four Types of Barcode Scanners

Four Types of Barcode Scanners

Barcode scanning productsBarcodes are machine-readable data codes that serve a broad range of organizational and financial applications. Barcodes are used to keep track of shipments, price retail items, manage financial documents, and to perform many other logistical and organizational services because a large number of coded information can be translated into barcode symbology, and then scanned and read by different types of barcode readers. There are four primary types of barcode readers that are each designed to fulfill specific information needs.
Barcodes, such as UPC codes, use thin and thick bar patterns to represent data while more complex coding systems, known as 2D matrix codes, use intricate patterns of blocks and arrangements to store masses of information. Both types of barcode are able to store information for later use if read by a barcode scanner, which reads the barcode and then uses software to convert the optical code information into a digital signal. The digital signal is then sent on to perform another function, such as representing information on a digital read out or logging stock in an inventory database.
