How to recognize a handheld scanner from a barcode reader ?
It is common to confuse a handheld scanner and a barcode reader because both allow to scan barcodes. Some differences are nevertheless visible between these two tools.
A barcode reader is recommended for reading 1D barcodes at small distances. It is easier to handle than the reader and generally less expensive. Thus, it is ideal for use in a store checkout.
A handheld scanner is like a gun. It can read 1D and 2D barcodes as well as QR codes and RFID tags, so it is more suitable for inventory management. Moreover, it can read barcodes quickly and at a greater distance than a barcode reader.
