Types of USB barcode scanners

Corded scanners are available with various scanning technologies to capture any barcode.

Laser scanners

These corded scanners utilise a red diode laser to scan the surface reflectance of a barcode’s black and white spaces. Capable of reading 1D barcodes on non-digital labels quickly and accurately at a distance of up to several feet, laser scanners are the most economical option available.

Linear imagers

Functioning like a digital camera, linear imagers use light sensors to capture and decode images of 1D barcodes. Suited to applications requiring more aggressive corded scanners, linear imagers are highly adept at reading damaged or low-quality barcodes on screens and paper surfaces.
