Points to be Consider When Purchasing Fixed Mount Barcode Scanners


For applications such as airport kiosks, retail POS, grocery store checkout, and manufacturing and logistics operations, fixed mount barcode scanners allow high-speed and hands-free scanning. In comparison to how long it takes to manually enter data, barcode technology can reliably collect data pretty much instantly. Fixed-mount barcode scanners can automate operations and increase efficiency in high-volume lines without the need for human involvement. 


Companies must save time and money in order to compete in the marketplace. Fast, high-volume scanners increase productivity and efficiency, saving businesses a significant amount of money in labor costs. Fixed-mount scanners have a minimal footprint and may be used in even the narrowest of spaces. They can be affixed to a mounting bracket, integrated into a kiosk, mounted on top of a counter, or mounted under it.


Fixed-mount barcode scanners come with a variety of configurations and functions. Here are seven things to think about while deciding on the ideal investment for your business.


Type of scanner

The type of scan engine a scanner has is one of the most essential considerations when selecting a scanner. Scan engines are divided into three categories:


  • 2D Area imager
  • Laser
  • Linear Imager

Type of Barcode

It might be difficult to know which barcodes would deliver the most efficiency and business value for your firm because there are so many different types, versions, and qualities to pick from.

  • Optical Character Recognition (OCR)
  • Symbology
  • Mobile, Printed label, Computer Screen
  • 1D or 2D

The ability to connect

Every scanner must connect to a host in order to send decoded data to the software you’re using. Scanners interact in two major ways:

  • Wireless (Bluetooth)
  • Wired (USB or Serial)



In order to scan a barcode, a barcode scanner must be illuminated. The following are the most frequent fixed mount scanner operation modes:

  • Presentation(always on)
  • Controller (by software)
  • Sensor ( by motion)


The type of barcode scanner you need will be determined by numerous criteria, including the environment. Industrial or rugged barcode scanners are built to last and work in a variety of environments, including:

  • Lighting
  • Temperature
  • Dust
  • Chemicals
  • Moisture

  • Orientation (Vertical, Horizontal, Variable)
  • Motion Tolerance (Scanning Speed)
  • Read Range and Field of View
  • Barcode Quality

Mounting options

To enable hands-free or automated scanning, you have a few options:

  • Mounting kits
  • Stands
  • Brackets
  • Kiosk
