Pen / wand Barcode Scanner
Wand Barcode Scanner are the simplest and lease expensive type of Barcode Scanner. Because of their simple design (no moving parts), Wand Barcode Scanners are the most durable type of barcode scanner, and can be tightly sealed against dust, dirt, and other environmental hazards. Wand Barcode Scanners are limited because they must come into direct contact with a barcode to read it. Because of their small size and low weight, Wand Barcode Scanners are ideally suited to portable (laptop) or very low volume scanning applications.
