History of Barcode Scanners

Barcode scanners that were corded are supposedly evergreen and easy to manage. People preferred using these scanners because they were easy to connect to your personal computer or cash register. You could simply plug in the scanner and get started. The corded scanners are still available in the market in the interface called  Serial (more commonly called Rs232), PS/2 and USD. There still exist business that is using barcode scanners that are corded because they are easy to install. These scanners are a cheaper option when compared to the wireless scanners. However, the fact that these scanners are easy to connect, make them worth buying? Imagine sitting on a cash counter that has wires running all around and offers limited range scanning.

With the ever changing dynamic environment, businesses are now shifting their base from using a barcode scanner to Bluetooth Barcode Scanners. Wireless barcode scanner uses Bluetooth to connect to your PC and offers a wide range of scanning, with no wires to be seen on your cash counter.

The New Technology Wireless Scanners

Barcode scanners have evolved over the past few decades in terms of technology. The best advancement in improving the efficiency and productivity of people at work is the wireless connectivity of barcode scanners. You will find these scanners a little more expensive than the corded scanners, their cost, however, is worth every penny. Popular brands have found ways to lower down the prices of these scanners to increase the sale and popularity of these scanners. The Bluetooth scanners function absolutely in the same manner as a wired scanner. The difference lies in their connectivity, a cordless scanner most commonly comes with a base station that can be connected to your personal system or cash register instead of a wire. The base station connects to your system with a cord and the scanner is paired with the base station. You can start using the scanner after a quick and easy installation of the wireless scanner.

The Right Scanner for Your Business

If you are looking for a barcode scanner that does not limit your range of scanning, you must pick a Bluetooth Barcode Scanner. These scanners are best for businesses that require scanning not only over cash counter but other areas as well. Warehouses are a very good example of where wireless barcode scanners come handy. Businesses that deal or manufacture heavy objects are most commonly using wireless scanners to increase the productivity of their staff members. You will usually find cordless scanners with up to 33-35 feet of the scanning range. If you’re looking for a scanner with a superior scanning range, you can find scanners that can scan barcodes beyond 200 feet. The launch of cordless scanners has proven to be a blessing for businesses that needed barcodes with advanced scanning capability.
