EPOS Barcode Scanners

EPOS (Electronic Point of Sale) barcode scanners work just like normal laser barcode scanners, but with the addition of several mirrors and other reflective devices that effectively multiply one laser line into many, all at different angles. This enables barcodes to be read at any angle, speeding up the scanning process quite considerably. At Barcode Technologies we have a huge range of EPOS barcode scanners from the likes of Datalogic, Honeywell, Metrologic, Motorola, Scantech, Opticon, Unitech and other leading brands. Head over to our website to see which models we have available.

Laser Barcode Scanners

These are the most common type of barcode scanner. Standard models are generally able to read barcodes from anywhere between 6 and 24 inches, while long range models can read from a distance anywhere up to 8 feet (certain extra long range devices can read barcodes from up to 30ft). Laser barcode scanners usually have an ergonomic “gun” shape design – however, they are also regularly built for countertop or fixed-mount applications. You can find our complete range of laser barcode scanners listed on the Barcode Technologies website. There you’ll find models from CipherLab, Cognex, Datalogic, Honeywell, Metrologic, Motorola, Intermec, Opticon and many other industry-leading manufacturers.

CCD Barcode Scanners

This type of barcode scanner uses an imaging CCD (Charged Coupled Device) in order to take a picture of the barcode, which is then decoded into a sequence of characters. They typically have a very fast scan speed but a low scan range (often less than 3 inches from the barcode). Because CCD scanners does not contain any moving parts, they tend to be highly durable. This, as well as the fact that they are fast and relatively inexpensive, makes them well suited to POS applications. On our website you’ll find a number of CCD devices from leading manufacturers like CipherLab, Datalogic, Intermec and Opticon.

2D Barcode Scanners

Using both CCD and imaging technology, 2D barcode scanners are able to read and interpret two-dimensional barcodes. These store data in two dimensions rather than in a series of black and white bars. We have a range of 2D scanners for you to choose from, including:

  • CipherLab 1704 – A rugged 2D scanner ideal for manufacturing, warehousing, logistics or any application where versatility and reliability are essential. 
  • Code Corporation CR1000 – With dual optics to allow both high density and wide-field scanning in the same unit. 
  • Cognex DataMan 7500 Series – A 2D scanner which sets the industry standard for reading and verifying Direct Part Mark (DPM) codes for part traceability.
  • Datalogic Gryphon D432 – Performs omnidirectional reading on a range of symbologies, from the most common 1D and 2D codes to stacked and postal codes. 

Our full range of 2D barcode scanners can be found on the Barcode Technologies website. 

Cordless Barcode Scanners

Cordless barcode scanners offer a portable solution for environments where flexibility, mobility and safety are essential. They are ideally suited to applications in tough industrial environments, such as in loading docks where the constant shipping and receiving goods requires freedom of movement, as well as in manufacturing environments where cabled devices may pose a threat to personnel safety. Barcode Technologies can offer a great range of cordless scanners from several leading brands, including Baracoda, Bluebird, CipherLab, Datalogic, Intermec and Motorola.

Imager Barcode Scanners

An “imager” is a barcode scanner that functions more like a digital camera than a laser scanner. Instead of bouncing one of several beams of intense light off of a barcode and back into the receiver, the imager bounces a burst of light onto the barcode and back into a camera-like eye. This means that the imager does not need to be orientated in any way in order to perform a scan. Barcode Technologies can offer a wide choice of imager-type scanners from leading manufacturers like CipherLab, Datalogic, Honeywell, Intermec and Motorola. Discover the range at Barcode Technologies online.

Barcode Verifiers

A barcode verifier is a device used to guarantee the quality of your printed barcodes and to ensure that they are compliant with the symbology specifications. We have several options for you to choose from:

  • Cognex DataMan 100 – A high-performance ID reader offering six sigma read rates of up to 45 parts per second. 
  • Honeywell Quick Check Series – Includes several models covering most verification requirements.

  • Intermec SR61HD – An industrial handheld scanner that can reliably scan DPMs while still offering rapid performance on standard barcodes. 

Wireless Mobile Computers

Wireless mobile computers can be used in conjunction with various application programmes to gather information from barcoded or tagged items. Different models have different scanning technologies, including CCD, laser, 1D, 2D, RFID and Imaging. Most will be installed with a Windows Mobile or DOS-based operating system and will have a keyboard, display and supporting accessories. Often they are IP rated, which means they are suitability protected against the ingress of moisture, dirt and dust, and therefore ideal for tough operating environments – both indoors and outdoors. Barcode Technologies can offer a huge range of mobile handheld computers from industry-leading brands like Bluebird, Casio, CipherLab, Datalogic, Motorola, Metrologic, Opticon, Unitech, Paxar Monarch and others.

Portable Data Collectors

Portable data collectors tend to have less in the way of features than wireless computers, but they still offer a range of scanning options and are compatible with a range of applications designed for gathering information from barcoded or tagged items. These are compact, rugged, user-friendly devices ideal for tough warehousing or manufacturing environments. Barcode Technologies can offer a choice of portable data collectors from leading manufacturers like CipherLab, Metrologic, Nordic and Opticon.
