Top Presentation Barcode Scanners

Ideal for high volume scanning, an omni scanner can read a barcode regardless of its orientation. Laser omni scanners use multiple mirrors and prisms to multiple the scanning lines, improving accuracy, while imagers use high powered processors to capture and decode barcode data. These are generally designed to stay stationary at a pos station, or even be built into the checkstand.

Top Industrial Barcode Scanners

Industrial scanners are built to handle tremendous abuse, wide temperature swings, and any other harsh conditions that would take down lesser scanners. They usually are sealed against the elements, with some able to survive dunking into water. Generally seen in manufacturing and heavy industrial environments, an industrial scanner is built to last.
