The definition of a barcode scanner is simple to the point of self-explanatory: it is a device used to read barcodes. However, with its incorporation of various components including a lens, a light source, and a light sensor that translates optical impulses into electrical ones, a barcode scanner can too easily break. And, when it does, that barcode scanner - whether it is put to personal, commercial or industrial use - can be swiftly and effectively repaired by our team at Mobile Computer Repair.
Barcode scanners can be especially commonly used in retail settings, due to the nearly universal use of barcodes in automating supermarket checkout systems. Many barcode scanners are notable for their ability to output barcodes to a computer; however, with the emerging popularity of smartphones and tablets, barcode scanning is no longer a function reserved strictly for dedicated devices. Various apps are now available for bringing this functionality to consumer devices.
Use of barcode scanners is also widespread in healthcare and hospital settings - for example, when patient data like medical history and drug allergies are used to identify patients - and tracking species organisation in biology. These devices are also useful for keeping track of objects like rental cars, airline luggage and parcels and controlling access to theatres, cinemas and fairgrounds. These are just a few selected examples of how barcode scanners can be used.
