Wired Scanners

Commonly referred to as USB Barcode Scanners. Wired barcode scanners are lightweight and easy to use.

Wired Scanners are physically attached to hardware via a desktop computer, laptop computer, or an instrument. Wired scanners fall computer terminal into three categories – Laser, CCD and Slot.

Laser scanners are highly flexible – they can read a wide variety of barcode densities, from varying distances. They can read from irregular surfaces or even through glass or under plastic.

Charge Coupled Device (CCD) scanners are less flexible, but more cost effective, generally having a lower power consumption. They come with a range of interfaces (Serial, USB, PS2 Keyboard Wedge) and many have a “hands free” scanning option.

Slot scanners are very easy to use and therefore suitable for untrained users – this means they are often used in self-checkout, time & attendance and production tracking and progress applications.

Wired Charge Coupled Device (CCD)

CCD scanners are generally less flexible, but more cost-effective with lower power consumption.

CCD scanners are like digital cameras. They have lots of tiny lights that take pictures all in one line. They usually have rather fast scan rates however they need to be held close to the barcode as they can generally only read from under three inches.

They are lower cost than traditional barcode scanners which makes them an ideal choice for uses such as point-of-sale and other applications where distance isn’t an issue.

CCD barcode scanners are used every day and are popular in grocery stores and many other places. They look like TV remotes with a little hook attached to them. The user points the scanner at the code on an object, then pushes a button which takes a picture of that code.

CCD scanners do have a tendency to require calibration on occasion to keep them accurate.

Omni-Directional Scanners

Better at reading poorly printed wrinkled, or even partial barcodes.

Omnidirectional barcode scanners use a series of different scanning lines that cross all bars and spaces regardless of orientation. They almost all use a laser. Unlike single-line lasers, they produce patterns of beams in varying orientations that allow them to read barcodes from different angles. Most of these scanners use one rotating polygonal mirror and an arrangement of several fixed mirrors to generate their complex scan patterns.

Omnidirectional barcode readers and scanners are used in many places. Some people use them in supermarkets when they scan a code, other people use them in warehouses for packaging.

The scanner is usually larger than linear ones, so they require more space for installation. Some models also require some sort of shielding is against other electromagnetic interference.

2D Barcode Scanners

2D barcode scanners are faster and less error-prone than one-dimensional 1D scanners.

Two-dimensional (2D) codes combine the benefits of one-dimensional (1D) barcodes and machine-readable 2D matrix symbols.

2D codes can be read faster and are less error prone than standard image recognition systems because they do not require feature extraction, matching or location determination for each bit being read.

A 2D barcode contains one field of data which may consist of any number of concentric 2D dot-matrix patterns called “modules”. Scanning a 2D barcode is quick and accurate.

A potential advantage of using 2D codes over 1D code is the ability to store more data on the same surface area. This may be particularly important for applications where space requirements are critical, such as in rack mount panels or other constrained real estate.
