A handheld scanner, as the name suggests, refers to an electronic device that performs the same tasks as that of a flatbed scanner. It is used to scan physical documents into their digital forms that can be stored, edited, transferred and emailed digitally. This device is especially useful when space is a concern, as flatbed scanners tend to take up a large amount of space.

The Zebra Terminal Scanner has what it takes to affordably automate the capture of inventory data right at the point of work. Paper-based forms that need to be transcribed and manually entered into the computer are eliminated, reducing keying errors and improving productivity — workers can handle more tasks per day.
“Wireless Barcode Scanner” is a term often used to describe three different types of Barcode Scanner – Cordless Barcode Scanner, Batch Barcode Scanner, and Mobile Computer. Our Wireless Barcode Scanners allow your mobile workers to capture data in various environments. Whether you are using a cordless barcode scanner that uses Bluetooth technology, a batch barcode scanner that collects data and syncs to a PC, or a mobile computer that has a full operating system, we have the right wireless barcode scanner for you.
Radio-frequency identification (RFID) uses electromagnetic fields to automatically identify and track tags attached to objects. The tags contain electronically stored information. Passive tags collect energy from a nearby RFID reader’s interrogating radio waves. Active tags have a local power source (such as a battery) and may operate hundreds of meters from the RFID reader.
Our fixed barcode scanners are used in a variety of applications, such as kiosks, direct part mark (DPM), and boarding pass scanning. For high speed and the most demanding applications, we recommend Microscan and Datalogic fixed mount barcode scanners while Motorola and Code are ideal for lower volume scanning.
