A barcode scanner, also known as a barcode reader, is a device used to capture and decode information encoded in barcodes. Barcodes are machine-readable data representations, typically consisting of parallel lines of varying widths and spaces. They are commonly found on product packaging, shipping labels, identification cards, and other items. The main purpose of a barcode scanner is to quickly and accurately read the information encoded in the barcode and translate it into human-readable text or numeric data. This process eliminates the need for manual data entry, reducing errors and improving efficiency in various industries. When a barcode scanner is used, it emits a light source, such as a laser or LED, onto the barcode. The light is reflected into the scanner, creating a pattern converted into an electrical signal. The scanner’s decoder processes this signal, translating it into the original data stored in the barcode. Barcode scanners come in multiple types, including handheld, fixed-mount scanners, and integrated scanners embedded in mobile devices. They can easily connect to computer systems and point-of-sale (POS) terminals through wired or wireless interfaces, enabling seamless integration into business operations. They also help enhance accuracy, speed, and automation in inventory tracking, product pricing, order processing, and supply chain management. As a result, barcode scanners find extensive applications in the retail, healthcare, logistics, manufacturing, and inventory management sectors across the globe.
