Unless you do not know exactly what you need, choosing the right barcode scanner can be confusing. We have split our barcode scanners by categories to make it easier for you.
If you are looking for a barcode scanner to read barcodes on retail products, then you should be looking at a 1D (1 Dimensional) barcode scanner. 1D barcodes are those barcodes with lines in them. Then it is up to you to choose whether you need a wired or wireless one, handheld or fixed. Omni Directional Barcode scanners are usually fixed barcode scanners which can capture barcodes from any direction, and are used mostly in fast moving retails, such as food stores.
If on the other hand you need to read QR Codes, then you will need a 2D (2 Dimensional) barcode scanner.
