Barcode scanners are available for a wide range of applications, including keyboard wedges, fixed scanners, 2d handhelds. Scanning technologies used include 1D laser and 2D imaging, and the world is moving quickly to only use 2D imaging for all scanning applications.
Barcode scanners provide dramatically improved speed and accuracy in data input operations. An operator keying in data will make a mistake every 200 entries on average; whereas an operator with a barcode scanner will make a mistake every 1,000,000+ scans.
