Barcode Readers Information

Barcode readers come in many different shapes and sizes, but they all have the same goal: to capture the number encoded in a barcode, translate it, and send it to your computer's inventory software or POS software.

At POSGuys.com, we carry only name brand, quality barcode readers - from those designed for heavy, industrial use to ones built for budget-conscious customers. We carry the popular line of Motorola barcode readers as well as scanners from POS-X, Honeywell, Datalogic, Intermec, ID-Tech, and Opticon.

POSGuys.com also carries a wide selection of cordless barcode scanners. Our wireless barcode readers connect to your computer via radio waves, just like a wireless phone. Many of our wireless barcode readers use industry standard Bluetooth technology for exceptional security, reliability and range. These scanners effortlessly reach large items normally out-of-range of traditional corded scanners and can scan barcodes up to 300 feet from the base station.

We also offer a full line of 2D barcode readers. These scanners are designed to scan two dimensional barcode formats such as PDF 417 and Matrix. 2D barcode readers can be used to decode driver license barcodes or read shipping labels. Even more important with the advent of mobile couponing is the 2D barcode reader's ability to scan barcodes on mobile phones.
