On The Difference Between The Supermarket Barcode Scan Gun And The Factory Scan Gun Jan 24, 2018

What is the difference between a barcode scanner and a factory scan gun for supermarkets? On this issue, the following is a detailed analysis of its specific differences: in want to understand its detailed information first of all to popularize what is IP:
IP level is one of the important safety energy of electrical products, often called shell protection grade. This group of figures refers to the lamp housing can ensure that the lamp in the corresponding natural environment safe work, and not to the outside world unsafe. The former refers to the scanning gun can prevent the external solids or liquid intrusion, will not produce short circuit and fire, resulting in accidents; the latter refers to the scanning gun can prevent electric shock, to ensure that users or unintentional contact with the safety of people or animals.
The natural environment has many factors affecting electrical safety, such as shock vibration, corrosion, explosion, temperature difference, etc., but the most common are: solid objects: People, animals, tools and dust, liquids: rain, water spray and soaking, etc.
So what's the difference between a barcode scanner and a factory scan gun?
First, the scanning gun IP level requirements are different.
Industrial environment relative to the ultra environment is relatively bad, in the use of scanning gun process, it is likely to encounter the invasion of liquids, more severe impact vibration, a large number of dust and other factors. So industrial scanners usually have an industrial rating to determine the stability and reliability of the scan gun, and no one wants to buy a scan gun that fails all day long, delaying normal production. On the contrary, the requirement of the IP level of the scanning gun is greatly reduced.
Second, the operating environment is different.
Industrial applications of the environment is very complex, sometimes must be in strong light scanning bar code, sometimes must be in the outdoor operation, and sometimes must scan the bar code, and sometimes must scan the density of the bar code, these factors caused the general scan gun can not meet the industrial environment to collect the special bar code requirements. Ultra Barcode most common is nothing but EAN-13 code, a lot of product bar code are printed, bar code quality is very good, very easy to scan, scanning gun classification There are many kinds of, but no matter what kind of classified scan gun, generally can be scanned.
Three, the price is different
Industrial scanners are often resistant to falling, dustproof and waterproof, so the price is high. Although the ultra scan gun also has a certain IP rating, but for cost considerations, the general assessment of the industrial grade is also low. You can not use the scan gun in the supermarket to take a malicious fall, or to soak water, so the ultra of the scan gun generally hundreds of to 1000, compared to the industry is much lower. The factory used scanners and supermarkets to scan guns, although different, but the ultimate goal is to better scan the collection of barcode. Only for different use of the environment need to use a different scanning gun. Then the extension of another interesting question, whether the business of the scan gun to scan the bar code, the use of industrial scanning gun can be scanned, the answer is no. Unable to scan bar code problems have many factors, and can not be generalized.
