  • Buying Guide
A barcode is symbol which consists of black and white bars. The data about the product is stored in this symbol, and it is archived by the barcode scanner or a barcode reader when it throws light on the black and white bars. The reflection converts the bars into binary digits, which spells the details about the particular item. It is also known as a point of sale scanner or a POS scanner. The reader consists of a decoder which may be built internally or attached externally to the machine, a wire that connects the scanner with the computer. As the scanner converts the image into numbers, the information should be passed to the computer so that software installed in it could make sense of the data that has been transferred to it. A scanner can be connected to the system through a number of ways, such as a keyboard or a serial port or a wedge which is an interface instrument. When the reader throws a beam of rays across the black and white bars the light is reflected back, which is then converted to electrical energy from light energy after which it gets translated to the data which is sent to the computer.  These may also be used to read the codes of the medicines. Read more on this here.

Various Kinds of barcode readers

Technology that has been used

Barcode scanners can be differentiated by their technology as follows:

Pen Style readers

They were the first of its kind barcode readers. The Pen style barcode scanner has a source of light and a photodiode that is kept alongside each other. To read the barcode image the person should move the tip of the pen style reader across the black and white bars at a regular speed. The photodiode in the scanner then reads the intensity of the light across the barcode. After which a waveform is created from the photodiode that can measure the size of the bars. The scanner reflects the light from the white spaces and it absorbs the light from the black bars, that generates a voltage waveform from the photodiode and that signifies the image pattern of the barcode.

Laser scanners

They work in a similar fashion as that of a pen style barcode scanner, with only a little difference in the working. A laser scanner has a laser scanner uses a laser beam instead of a source of light, it also has a reciprocating or a prism that rotates to scan the laser beam back and forth across the bars. The similarity between both these scanners is that the light is emitted through the scanner changes its brightness, provides a range of options to choose the kind of laser scanners that would suit your requirement:

1) Honeywell MS5145- This laser scanner has a single line scan pattern, with a speed of 2 scan/sec.

2) TVS-E BS-L101 Platina- This 1D laser scanner has a scan speed of 40 scan/sec and it has a blue LED.

3) Motorola Symbol LS1203- 1D laser scanner with single line scan pattern and has multiple interfaces.

CCD readers

A CCD barcode scanner has a lot of tiny light sensors that are placed in a row which is at the head of the barcode scanner. Each light sensor is used to gauge the intensity of light that is in front of it at that moment. A big difference between all these three barcode scanners is that a CCD scanner gauges the ambient light which is emitted by the barcode image, whereas a pen style reader or a laser scanner measures the light that is reflected by the black and white bars.  

Camera-based readers

The latest kind of barcode readers are the camera based scanners. These are 2D image readers, and it employs the image processing technique to scan the barcode image.

Another kind of barcode scanners is the video camera scanners that have a tiny video camera and it uses the CCD technology to scan the barcode. Unlike the CCD scanners these videos canners have a multitude of sensors that are placed in a 2D pattern so that an image can be formed.  

There are big field of view readers that employ very high resolution industrial cameras to read multiple barcodes simultaneously Every barcode that appears in the image is decoded at the same time by using the plugins those were proven options to resolve the task.

Omni directional barcode scanners

These scanners employ a multitude of straight and curved lines in different directions that take the shape of a starburst or a multiple angle pattern that is projected at the image and it will be able to scan the black and white bars irrespective of the orientation.

All these scanning devices use a laser. It produces an array of beams in different orientation that allows them to read the barcodes at any given angle. A single rotating polygonal mirror as well as a pattern of many fixed mirrors is used to create a complex scanning pattern. Read more on this here.

Barcode readers that are used in the supermarkets use an Omni directional scanner to fulfill their business requirements. A wide range of Omni directional readers are available in the market, which can be used for any kids of scanning practices. They can scan even the badly printed, torn or wrinkled barcodes. Omni directional scanners are available at

Motorola Symbol LS9208

Cell phone cameras

An auto focus is necessary for the cameras to scan the commonly used barcodes, but some of the 2D barcodes are optimized for cell phone devices, QR codes and Data Matrix can be read easily even without auto focus.

Fixed Position Scanner

These scanners are industrial barcode scanners which are used to identify the items that are manufacturing stage or in logistics. First they are placed on the conveyor track through which they recognize the cartons or pallets that are to be sent to some other place or process. Another application that has joined the holographic readers which has a check weighed to scan the barcodes that can be of any orientation or placement, it can also weigh the package.

1. How does a barcode scanner function?

A barcode scanner uses an algorithm to read the mis of black and white mashed lines which in turn represent a piece of text. This text is in an encoded form and contains details like product information, prices etc.
2. What types of barcodes are used?

Barcodes are broadly 1D and 2D. The liner black and white lines are 1D and the amount of information they hold is less than a 2D barcode. 2D barcodes are cryptic and often in the shapes of squares and circles, and hold more information than a conventional 1D barcode
3. How many words of text can fit in a barcode?

1D barcodes typically see a set of 7-8 words while 2D barcodes can fit a set of 300-400 words
4. Do barcode scanners use some sort of software to run?

No, they do not. They just replicate your computer's keyboard and understand the encoding in the barcode.
5. What is the maximum range of a wireless barcode scanner?

Anywhere between 20-50 feet
6. What is the length of the wire in a wired scanner?

Somewhere between 5.5-6 feet
7. Do you offer discounts on bulk purchase?

Yes we do that. Please contact us at +91-9910605077 to know more about our bulk discounts
