Additional Information On Industrial Barcode Scanner
Industrial bar code scanners are designed to be highly ruggedized to survive drops, temperature changes, and use in harsh environments. Their rugged design allows them to take a beating and continue scanning like new. POSGuys.com carries a solid lineup of industrial barcode scanners to meet a variety of needs. The three categories are General Industrial Barcode Scanners, Cordless Barcode Scanners, and Barcode 2D Imagers.
General Industrial Barcode Scanners
One of the best things about Industrial bar-code scanners is their reliability due to their tough, ruggedized exteriors. Typically they will be reinforced with extra rubber on critical points of impact to protect against damage if dropped, and many have seals along the seams to protect from dirt and moisture. Ideal for warehouses or any location that endures harsh elements whether that be dirt, dust, steam, condensation, extreme cold, or sanitation, many industrial scanners stand up to the test. A great choice for decoding any barcodes is the Symbol LS3408, which excels at scanning either poorly printed barcodes with the Fuzzy Logic model or short and long range scanning using the Extended Range model. Another model that is superior at readability of short and long range barcodes is the Datalogic Powerscan D8300.
Cordless Industrial Barcode Scanner
Finding the greatest advantage of the cordless industrial bar-code scanners is a no-brainer, itís cordless! If mobility is what you are looking for, these scanners surpass any corded scanner out there. They are great for warehouses and Costco-like establishments that have a lot of ground to cover and canít afford to trip over cords all day. Disadvantages to the cordless scanner include a slightly more in-depth set up and some scanners will need to re-synch with the base after losing the wireless connection. The rugged Symbol LS3578 features an IP65 seal that protects against dust and low pressure water jets. Similar to the LS3408, the LS3578 incorporates a Fuzzy Logic model for hard to read barcodes and an Extended Range model able to read bar-codes up to 18 feet away.
Industrial 2D Barcode Imagers
2D Industrial Imagers are faster and more accurate than your average industrial bar code scanner. With the ability to enhance any dirty, damaged, or just plain hard to read barcode, the 2D imager works well for applications such as shipping or package delivery. Pairing advanced readability with rugged housing ensures dependability even in the harshest environments. The Honeywell 4800i is not only feature heavy, it has an IP54 seal and ruggedized body that allow it to fit into a variety of harsh environments.
