Information on Wireless Barcode Scanners

Wireless barcode scanners are handheld devices that allow users to freely move about while scanning barcodes. The scanner then sends the data across a wireless connection to a base-station connected to a PC or laptop computer.

Barcode wireless scanners usually employ BlueTooth wireless protocol to transmit scanned data, but there are other proprietary systems as well. Barcode scanners' wireless BlueTooth capabilities also include Serial Port Protocol (SPP). SPP allows users to connect wireless scanners with PDA devices, such as Blackberry or Palm, to upload scanned data into internet-based inventory and POS applications - without cumbersome wires.

POSGuys.com carries a large selection of handheld wireless barcode scanners in stock and ready to ship the same day you order. The POS-X Xi3000-BT is one of our recommended class-1 BlueTooth wireless barcode scanners. This high power scanner lets you work up to 300 feet (line of sight) away from the base station or BlueTooth device.
