2D Barcode Scanners (6)
A 2D image scanner is similar to a standard image scanner, except that it can scan all kinds of barcodes including 1D, 2D, and stacked barcodes. It can read barcodes easily and quickly because it can cross the scanner in any direction, whether vertical, horizontal, right side up, or upside down. It also reads barcodes off non-label surfaces such as computer screens and smartphones.
Anti-Microbial Barcode Scanners (4)
These are high-performance scanners with antimicrobial agents built into the housings to reduce the risk of spreading infectious microorganisms and bacteria while scanning. They're used in sterile and hygiene-sensitive situations like biomedical, pharmaceutical, and healthcare. Medical professionals use these scanners to do duties while also being cautious not to expose others to harmful microorganisms. Scanners with antimicrobial surfaces stay cleaner, fresher, and last longer than scanners that don’t come with this feature.
Bluetooth Barcode Scanners (4)
These allow you to scan and gather data from anywhere and at any time, regardless of cable length. Wireless Bluetooth barcode scanners can be readily set up when in use, eliminating the hassle of the complicated setup of some stationery barcode scanners in current locations. They work similarly to corded scanners, except that they use Bluetooth to communicate with an accompanying base station or directly with your mobile device.
Fixed Barcode Scanners (2)
These are tethered to a stationary terminal and transmit data as a single barcode is scanned. These scanners are also known as "tethered" scanners and are frequently built into retail kiosks or mounted on a conveyor belt. They are developed for incorporation into big automation systems and are intended for more specialised usage, such as logistics, manufacturing, and warehousing.
Handheld Barcode Scanners (27)
These are types of portable batch scanners that are used in data capture, after which they store information that is then transferred to a host computer. They're battery-powered, which gives them more mobility than a stationary scanner. An LCD monitor and a keyboard are also included in portable batch scanners. This enables users to carry out actions directly from the device. Other types of portable batch scanners include truck-mounted and wearable batch scanners.
