Sometimes called a price scanner or point-of-sale scanner, it is typically a hand-held or stationary input device used to capture and read information contained in a barcode.
A barcode reader consists of a scanner, a decoder (either built-in or external), and a cable used to connect the scanner to a computer.
Because a barcode reader merely captures and translates the barcode into numbers and/or letters, the data must be sent to a computer so that a software application like OpSuite EPoS can make sense of the data.
Barcode scanners can be connected to a computer through a serial port, Usb port (more common nowadays), or through the keyboard port providing intuitive scanning of the barcodes found in real-world environments, driving increased accuracy for end users.
