A wireless barcode scanner offers many of the same features of a traditional barcode scanner without any wires. It may be programmable and can recognize different types of barcodes. Some scanners can even detect broken or obscured barcodes. Each scanner includes a battery that may continue to perform for several weeks. A scanner usually can be plugged into a computer and store barcodes offline. Plus, a scanner is lightweight and portable and can be held comfortably in your hand for an extended period of time. Scanners come in multiple sizes and styles, and most come with instructions for seamless setup. They also can be used across a variety of industries, including the retail and healthcare sectors.
