2D Scanners

There are two categories of barcodes; 1d or liner barcode and 2d which are two dimensional barcode. Many technologically advanced devices have come up, along with various different applications to scan these barcodes. 1D barcodes are black lines they don’t store information, but they do take up less space than their counterpart 2D barcode. 2d barcode are bit more complex as they store or organize information vertically and horizontally. Type of information which can be stored with 2D barcode is not limited to alphanumeric, as 2D also contain images, website address, voice and other type of binary data. To access this information one doesn’t have to be connected to a database. Barcode scanners are used in many industries electronics, pharmaceutical, healthcare, retail, educational, aviation and many more sectors.

Why 2D Scanner

Today there are many varieties of scanners available in market such as; cordless , Presentation , Handheld , 2D Scanners, Bluetooth and Wearable scanner. 2D barcode technology is used from smaller supply chain to surgical instruments. They allow companies to encode more product data without creating difficult scanning alignment. Choosing the right scanner would help you improve your efficiently.
