Introduction to Handheld Barcode Scanners...

The Linear Imager Handheld Scanners in this range utilise a Charge Coupled Device (CCD), the same technology used in digital cameras. An array of LED's provide the light which is reflected back off the bar code and onto a revolving mirror in the scanner. This directs the light to the CCD which comprises many tiny opto sensors (pixels). CCD scanners are the lowest cost devices for reading barcodes and their few moving parts make them the most robust and reliable choice. Traditionally they have only worked with contact or at relatively short ranges but the latest design has increased the reading distance up to 500mm making them ideal for retail, point of sale and heavy industrial applications.

Handheld laser scanners project a pattern of beams in varying orientations allowing them to read barcodes presented at different angles. Multi beam scanners are also better at reading poorly printed, wrinkled, or even torn barcodes.

Handheld imaging barcode scanners use either CCD or laser technologies to scan an area or image and are used with the increasingly common 2D barcodes.

All of the scanners can be optimised by depth of field which is a measure of their reading range and can be interfaced by; keyboard wedge, RS-232C or USB. The interface is usually automatically selected simply by attaching the appropriate cable. Bluetooth cordless versions are also available for some models.
