Get a leap on this deal! For a limited time, our popular SC5USB Plug ‘n Play Barcode Scanner is on sale for $99. Sales ends 2/29/2008.
This durable and ergonomically designed IDAutomation Plug ‘n Play USB scanner is the best value handheld scanner in its class. It offers the performance of a laser scanner with no moving parts to wear out at a lower cost. The CCD scan engine in this scanner can focus on smaller barcodes better than most lasers scanners and still read large barcodes. It scans linear bar codes that are up to 4.2″ wide from near contact to 10″ away at 200 scans per second. The SC5USB scanner connects via a USB port making it compatible for both Windows PC’s and Apple Mac’s, perfect for laptops and PDA devices. It contains its own built-in decoder so information scanned appears as if it had been typed from the keyboard.
