Whilst CCD scanners provide absolute simplicity, harder to read codes such as those on flexible or reflective materials may prove a challenge. That's where the Hand Held USB Laser Barcode Scanner can help. As the name suggests, the scanner is held in the hand so a user simply aims it at a barcode, pulls the trigger and scans. Connection to the host is via a USB cable so there's no battery charging to worry about or Bluetooth connectivity problems to arise at an inopportune time. Simple.
The Hand Held USB Laser Barcode Scanner will recognise single dimensional barcodes such as Code 39, Code 128 etc.
Supporting software is unnecessary, the scanner simply functions as a "keyboard wedge" converting a scanned code into a keysequence so will work with any application that uses a keyboard or keypad input. As an example, one popular rental application Hire Intelligence regularly encounters is the scanner being used with Microsoft Excel. Client will rent a laptop with Office pre installed and open Excel - scanning a code will result in the alphanumeric equivalent of the scanned code being entered into the active cell and then the cursor being moved to the cell below where the process can be repeated. A very simple way of performing such tasks as recording asset serial numbers or other similar tasks. Of course applications can be tailor made to work with barcode scanners and most will work well with the Hand Held USB Laser Barcode Scanner.
