Wireless Barcode Scanner – Adapting to the Bluetooth Age

by Shinna Hu Leading Electronics Company
Barcode scanners used to be static, wired, and bulky devices that got in the way of going mobile. So, you would have to bring the item to be scanned to where they are stationed. Newer technologies, like Bluetooth, have introduced the wireless barcode scanner, which is more portable. This way, you can take the scanner to the product, instead of the other way around. Wireless barcode scanners are handy in any environment, and they are typically versatile, with the capability of reading different types of 1D and 2D barcodes. Their rugged construction allows them to withstand daily use, even in the most demanding workplaces.

A high-end wireless barcode reader can come with an array of features, such as the ability to read and barcodes from screens (i.e., mobile phones and laptops). This can be convenient when you want to implement mobile payment in supermarkets or any store. Running out of batteries will be the least of your concerns as some wireless barcode scanners come with a smart base, which can recharge the reader device and transmit the scanned results into a computer whenever it is connected or docked to it. This way, you do not have to worry about getting an extra receiver or charger.

Bluetooth technology is supported by a high-quality wireless barcode scanner. This will allow the device to connect with your smartphone or tablet. The scanner supports other connection methods, too, such as wirelessly with the base, and to the computer with a USB cable, which is included when you buy the product. Regardless of how it is connected, it ensures consistent, superior decoding capability, regardless of the condition of the barcode, such as high-density, blurry, or broken. Moreover, it can be switched to an auto-induction mode.

Some wireless Bluetooth barcode readers come with advanced features, such as auto-sensing, touch-activation, and inventory mode, which is applicable to offline data storage. If you are considering one of these products, consider a device with at least 2M of internal memory, which is roughly about 50,000 24-digit barcodes. Moreover, make sure that the wireless barcode reader has a good battery, preferably 2000mAh, which is rechargeable, and can run for up to 30 days with a 2.4Ghz connection.
