Datalogic Identification products automate the identification process of products based upon the reading of barcodes, analysis of images, and profiling of items.  They are used in a wide range of applications and machines. from the reading of barcodes on medication to ensure patient safety, to the scanning of dimensions of parcels to ensure accurate billing, identification products are behind many of the everyday processes that keeps the global economy running.


The wide range of Datalogic general purpose handhelds readers offer users a variety of choices for their data collection activities. Product sets offer conventional laser, linear or area imaging technology, plus a variety of features to meet specific scanning needs. 

Laser scanners use a laser beam as the light source and typically employ either a reciprocating mirror or a rotating prism to scan the laser beam back and forth across the bar code, CCD readers use an array of hundreds of tiny light sensors lined up in a row in the head of the reader. Each sensor measures the intensity of the light immediately in front of it. The important difference between a CCD reader and a laser scanner is that the CCD reader is measuring emitted ambient light from the bar code whereas a laser scanner is measuring reflected light of a specific frequency originating from the scanner itself.

Two-dimensional imaging scanners use a camera and image processing techniques to decode the bar code and allow excellent reads on both 1D and 2D barcodes


Two-dimensional imaging scanners are the newest type of bar code reader. They use a camera and image processing techniques to decode the bar code.A high speed industrial micro-processor, optimized for image processing and ethernet connectivity. The result is a superior barcode reading speed and robustness, especially for 2D codes and DPM; the powerful proprietary decoding libraries provide the Datalogic range of fixed barcode scanners with unrivalled performance even on damaged and low quality codes.


From low-to-medium volume POS applications such as those in convenience, specialty, and drug stores, to healthcare and document handling in office environments, Datalogic's wide range of presentation readers offer a variety of form factors and features to solve data collection needs.
