The difference between a corded and a cordless barcode reader is the connectivity when transferring data. A corded barcode reader means it needs to have a cable to connect to a PC, while a cordless barcode reader does not. Historically, almost all barcode readers need a cable to connect to a PC. Corded barcode readers are still the most common type, and it typically connects with a PC through a USB connection. Other types of connections are also available for many models. Corded scanners are easy to get up and running, and they will be your least expensive option.
Cordless barcode readers or barcode scanners have become more common today as their costs have become much more affordable. These handheld scanners function the same way a corded scanner does, except for the fact that the scanner communicates to a base station wirelessly and are not connected directly to your PC. The base station is then connected to your PC through a cable. Your PC does not need to have any wireless support as the cradle and the scanners handle this. Just plug in the cradle, pair the scanner to the base, and you are ready to start scanning. It is very easy to replace a corded scanner with a cordless one since it has no effect on your PC or software.
A laser scanner, either hand-held or stationary, is the most well-known scanner type. It does not have to be close to the barcode to scan. It uses a system of mirrors and lenses to allow the scanner to read the barcode regardless of orientation, and it can easily read a barcode up to 24 inches away. To reduce the possibility of errors, a laser scanner may perform up to 500 scans per second. Specialized long-range laser scanners are capable of reading a bar code up to 35 feet away.
Linear imager scanners, or a camera reader, are similar to laser scanners in the way that they also only read 1D barcodes. An image reader uses a small video camera to capture an image of the bar code and then uses sophisticated digital image processing techniques to decode the barcode.
Linear-imaging scanners have become a very good replacement for laser scanners as their read ranges and costs have become similar. A linear image scanner does a good job when reading poorly printed or damaged codes, whereas it can be difficult with a laser scanner. For applications that need a more aggressive scanner, a linear image scanner will be a great choice.
2D image scanners are similar to linear image scanners as full 2D image scanners also capture an image to analyze. However, compared to the linear models, these scanners can read any type of barcode; a 2D image scanner supports all—1D, stacked and 2D barcodes. Another advantage of these scanners is that the orientation of the barcode isn't important, compared to lasers and linear image scanners where you have to line up the indicator horizontally across the barcode. A 2D image scanner is taking a more detailed image and is more intelligent, so you can read a code in any direction; this results in faster readings with less aiming. With their added abilities and very aggressive reading, 2D image scanners are becoming more popular in all industries to speed up scanning applications and expand the ways in which barcodes are used.
