How does the Companion Scanner work
Since 1976 Opticon has been dedicated to developing and manufacturing world-class 1D and 2D barcode scanning solutions. Over 45 years, Opticon has maintained industry leadership and customer loyalty through innovative technologic advancements and a rich product line. By implementing our scan engines into a compact, portable device, Opticon created the line of companion scanners as a mobile solution for excellent on the go scanning.
What is a Companion Barcode Scanner?
A companion scanner is a small, compact device that scans and stores data or in other words, a data collector. The user-friendly design fits easily in the palm of your hand making it easy to complete everyday tasks with an excellent one-click point and shoot technology, making the companion scanners simple for every user.
How does the Companion Scanner work?
Through the integration of Opticon’s scan engines, one push of the button will trigger the device to scan a barcode and store the data within the device itself. Data collected within the companion scanner is either directly transferred via Bluetooth or through a USB-cable depending on the device.
What applications are best for the Companion Scanners?
Companion scanners can be used for a variety of applications such as access control, inventory management, asset tracking, visitor registration, or with integration into a point of sale system.
Our laser-based companion scanners can be used for several applications requiring quick and accurate scanning of 1D barcodes. CCD based companion scanners have the added benefit of having a very low power usage and no moving parts making it an affordable and reliable device in your daily work. Our 2D imager equipped companion scanners can read 1D and 2D barcodes from print or display making it an ideal companion scanner for a multitude of applications.
