Many applications of barcodes can be seen in a wide range of industries. The business of manufacture of barcode components, including barcode printer, barcode labels, and barcode scanners, is also increasing day by day. Zebra printers, HP scanners, and Symbol barcode are some of them. There are various types of barcode scanners based on technology and portability. Fixed mount barcode scanners are one of those types of scanners.
Fixed mount barcode scanners are used for applications in many industries. Barcodes on machinery, parts and containers can be read by them. As the name suggests they are fixed at a position whether it might be a wall, counter, or assembly line. They are mounted on to solid base. Various technologies such as laser or CCD technologies can be used in these scanners.
Fixed mount barcode scanners were generally used in grocery stores at check out counters. They are now being used in manufacturing, shipping, warehouse and distribution, and other applications. Laboratory and process control applications rarely use these scanners. Fixed-mount vision-based scanners are used for high-speed quality applications. They are used on an autonomous mode and are installed in a network system along with many scanners. They can also be installed with some verification software for checking the standard of barcodes. There has been an advancement in technology in producing various types of barcode printers and scanners. These scanners are available with various features, which are applicable in various fields.
