How Does a Handheld Barcode Scanner Work?

A laser scanner works almost similar to a pen-type barcode scanner. Here the differentiating factor is the laser as a light source. The handheld laser scanner produces a laser spot on the barcode which is to be scanned. Hold the laser scanner and move it across the barcode to read the entire code. The laser scanner is equipped with a photodiode that receives the reflected light from the barcode. Further, this photodiode converts the optical signals into electrical signals which are then decoded after processing through software.

Advantages of Handheld Barcode Scanners

The barcode readers prove extremely beneficial for the businesses to keep track of movements of their supplies, organize their inventories, and speed up the process. Handheld laser scanners in turn have some added advantages:

1) Range - Laser scanners have a wider range, unlike other scanners. These scanners can read a barcode placed at a distance and are preferred for long-range scanning purposes.

2) Large Reading Capacity - A laser barcode scanner can easily read barcodes over a longer span. Other scanners read up to 3-4 inches length barcodes. This allows you to cover a wider and longer barcode in a single scan.

3) Reads from Uneven Surfaces - As a laser scanner uses the laser as a light source this makes it easier to collect the data as light can bend on any shape. Therefore, even if the surface is crumbled or uneven the barcode can be comfortably scanned.
