Wireless barcode scanners are able to transfer data using Bluetooth technology enabling them to send the barcode data from the scanner to the computer wirelessly.
Using a bluetooth scanner will reduce the clutter while providing the same features as other scanners. The main benefit is you can carry it around to scan barcodes. They are highly recommended for scanning heavy and bulky items that are difficult to place on the counter.
Most of these cordless bluetooth scanners are accompanied by a communication/charging scanner cradle, which can be attached to a computer or a mobile device using a USB/ Serial cable to bulk transmit data. They have a scanning range up to even 21.4 meters. They have the ability to be configured to store data when used far from the scanner cradle and to transmit data to the relevant device when the barcode scanner is within range.
These scanners are ideal for retail, warehouse, logistics, manufacturing and healthcare applications and can be connected to an iPad, iPhone, Android device or Tablet PC.
