New GS1 DataBar Scanner for Sunrise 2010 – $139

by Nate Schubert

IDAutomation wants to help their customers get ahead of the game with their new DataBar and PDF417 Barcode Scanner. By January 2010, all POS systems will require retail checkouts to be GS1 Databar compliant. This is the only symbology that will be approved for use by to encode GTIN-14 numbers that do not start with the number zero (0). The databar symbology is also being used in grocery stores, encoding expiration dates and serial numbers as well as coupons and it is being used in the health industry for small items where traditional barcodes are too large.

With this new GS1 mandate, IDAutomation has added the ability to read Databar and PDF417 barcodes to their already popular SC5 Plug ‘n Play barcode scanner. This scanner will continue to read the popular linear bar codes such as Code 39, UPC, EAN, Code 128 and Interleaved 2 of 5. Now, this CCD reader will be able to read PDF417, GS1 DataBar 14, DataBar Truncated, DataBar Stacked, DataBar Stacked Omni-directional, DataBar Limited, DataBar Expanded, DataBar Expanded Stacked Omni-directional and GS1-128.

The price remains competitive at $139 for the new model with the same great one (1) year warranty and the option to increase that warranty to three (3) years. Order Now!
