Reading Skills

  • To acquire a good reading effect, the scanner center shall be aligned to the barcode, but the alignment can be made at any direction to facilitate reading.
  • When the scanner aligns to the barcode, the scanner shall be close to the barcode if the barcode is too small; if the barcode is large, the scanner shall be slightly away from the barcode, so that the scanner can more easily read the barcode.
  • If the reflectance on the surface of barcode is high (e.g., film coating), you may need to incline the scanner at an angle, so that the scanner can more easily read the barcode.
