This is a fast summary of everything you need to be aware of when picking barcode scanners.
1D Barcodes would be the general barcodes we have seen on many products sold in the supermarket. All these Barcodes will be the most typical and also the most used barcodes available on the marketplace and for many companies, 1D barcodes will be that you will ever have to use.
2D Barcode looks different from the standard based on the line of the barcode in that it is composed of dots tiny little square pixels and is usually seen as 1cm x 1cm printed small square. These barcode types are sometimes used in the health care industry and the so-called Aztec Code.
Barcode scanners (also known as “เครื่องสแกนบาร์โค้ด” in the Thai language)come in two distinct types based on the type of recorder you’ll be scanning. For many companies that use barcodes to track stocks, the 1D scanner is adequate and therefore their very best choice is to get a laser scanner.
The next option you have with the barcode scanner is a barcode scanner if you want to be a mobile or fixed bracket. Portable scanners allow you to grip the scanner into your hand and shines a laser on the barcode scanner on the barcode, or rather just a set of items that pass under the barcode scanner docked on the shelf.
Fixed-mount scanners are mounted in 1 area and can’t be moved. Instead, the thing being scanned needs to be transferred in the front of the scanner so as to be scanned.
