Scanners that 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.




These scanners do not need to be physically attached to a computer.  They communicate via a base station or communication cradle, using wifi or bluetooth technology, and can transmit live up to 100 meters. They are widely used in retail, transport/distribution logistics, parcel and postal delivery, healthcare and manufacturing.



  • Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs), which are particularly appropriate for imprest requisitions, pharmacy, stocktake and warehousing.
  • Data Collection devices – powerful portable computers with keypad and integrated laser or RFID reader, offering high performance data scanning and processing capabilities away from the office.

Omni directional scanners have 20-25 scan lines (instead of the single line of other scanners), which gives the highest first pass decoding rate and therefore better reading performance. They are used in high volume scanning areas such as retail point of sale or circulation desks in libraries.


Fixed mount  

Fixed Mount scanners are suitable for environments with different package dimensions,  complex sorting requirements and varying barcode label positioning, and are used in low speed conveyor systems. They are also suitable for Time and Attendance systems. A tough outer shell makes them highly tamper proof.  Fixed Mount Scanners and controllers range from raster units that scan at 1200 scans per second at a range of 250mm, through to holographic scanners with up to 5 focal planes, range of over 2 metres and a scan width of nearly 1.5 metres.  They can be implemented in single or tunnel configurations on conveyors running at 3 metres per second.

2D imagers


2D imagers have the ability to read very small 2D barcodes, and are particularly suitable for DNA laboratories, Microbiology, Cytology and other medical applications. 2D barcodes can hold up to 60 characters , so are valuable in environments that need to store large amounts of information in a small space.

Multi-use scanners

These plug into a handheld computer, adding barcode scanning functionality.
