USB GS1 DataBar POS Barcode Scanner
IDAutomation wants to help its customers get ahead of the game with its DataBar and PDF417 Barcode Scanner. All POS systems are required to be GS1 Databar compliant. This is the only symbology that is approved for use by GS1.org 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 the GS1 mandate, IDAutomation has also 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. This barcode 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.
