Key Questions to Ask in Choosing a Handheld Barcode Scanner

There are several considerations that help identify the best handheld barcode scanner for your application:

  1. Will your handheld barcode scanners be used indoors or out? Some barcode scanners work just as well in natural sunlight and dim lighting conditions as they do in ideal lighting. If your application requires outdoor scanning or scanning in dim lighting conditions, be sure to carefully evaluate the lighting specifications for the scanner models you’re considering.
  2. What types of barcodes and symbologies do you work with? If you often work with barcodes which are damaged or faded, you’ll need a barcode scanner capable of reading imperfect barcodes. Additionally, there are several primary categories of symbologies, including 1D, 2D, and Postal barcodes. Not all handheld scanners are capable of decoding all symbologies.
  3. How often, and how heavily, will the device be used? If your business application requires ongoing scanning for long periods of time, considerations such as battery life and corded connectivity come into play. Also, some barcode scanners are able to capture 60 images per second or more and offer rapid, continuous scanning capabilities without delay. If your application requires the scanning of hundreds or thousands of barcodes in a day, you’ll need a handheld barcode scanner with these capabilities to avoid unnecessarily slowing down the workflow.
  4. Does your application include exposure to harsh environments? If you’re scanning requirements include less-than-ideal environmental conditions, such as scanning products stored in freezers or outdoors in rain, wind, or other elements, you should choose a handheld barcode scanner with exceptional durability.
  5. What scanning distance do you require? In some applications, holding a handheld scanner within a few inches of a barcode is not always achievable. For these applications, carefully evaluate the scanning distance requirements for the handheld scanner models you’re considering.
