The Motorola DS9808-SR handheld omnidirectional LED barcode reader is black, has a hybrid design, and can be used to
scan and decode linear one-dimensional (1D), two-dimensional (2D), and Portable Document Format 417 (PDF417) barcodes.
The barcode reader's hybrid design includes a base that allows it to be held in the hand or placed on a counter or
surface for fixed-position use. A laser produces lines of light in an omnidirectional pattern to scan barcodes on labels
or cell phone screens at different angles from up to 10.5" away and at a scanning speed of up to 100" per second. An LED
indicator turns red to alert the user of a decoding error. A beeper makes the barcode reader suitable for loud work
environments. A cable (sold separately) and on-board interfaces can be used to connect the barcode reader to a computer
or host system. The barcode reader has a rubber handle for grip. Motorola Remote Scanner Management software (available
separately for download) can be used by an administrator to manage the device remotely. The barcode reader weighs 12 oz.
and measures 8 x 3.4 x 5.4 inches (H x W x D). (H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W
is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.) It can
withstand drops of up to 5' on a concrete floor. This product is compatible with Checkpoint Electronic Article
Surveillance (EAS) deactivation systems for use in a retail store.
Barcode scanners, also known as barcode readers, can be used to scan and decode barcodes and to transmit barcode data to
a computer or another host system. Barcode readers with a single-line laser can be used to scan linear, one-dimensional
(1D) barcodes. Some lasers can produce light in an omnidirectional pattern to allow scanning of barcodes from different
angles. Other barcode readers contain CCD (charge-coupled device) light sensors instead of a laser for accuracy and wear
resistance. Barcode scanners with raster scanning, area imaging, and other scanning technologies can allow scanning of
two-dimensional (2D) or Portable Document Format 417 (PDF417) barcodes, among other types. Some barcode readers provide
onboard flash memory to allow the storage of barcode data before transmitting it to a computer or host system through a
USB cable or wireless WLAN or Bluetooth connection. Many barcode readers have a handle for handheld use and come with a
stand or a charging cradle for fixed position applications, while others are designed for stationary use on a counter or
another flat surface. Some portable readers are small enough to be carried in a pocket or attached to a lanyard. Barcode
readers are used at retail checkout counters and other points of sale (POS) locations and in warehouses and shipping
