Barcode Scanner

     A barcode scanner is also called a barcode reader. It is an electronic device for reading printed barcodes.  There are a lot of types of barcode readers. These are the handheld scanner with a trigger button, wand scanner that is swiped, stationary scanner which is mounted on a table or wall and which we commonly see on supermarkets or grocery stores, fixed position scanner, wireless, and a lot more. Also, a barcode scanner has three functional parts: the illumination system, the sensor/converter, and the decoder. So this advanced electronic device is indeed a big help to the business industries, nowadays, because it makes the work easier.
