Recommendations for barcode scanners?
I am working with a new Aeon library. They are moving to PCs and they are looking for recommendations for barcode scanner brands. They will be using the barcode scanner to scan the Aeon transaction number from the call-slip into the batch process update tab. They are not sure which barcode scanners to purchase, so any recommendations would be very appreciated.
We use Honeywell Voyager 1250g laser scanners: https://www.barcodefactory.com/honeywell/scanners/voyager-1250g. These scan right out of the box - plug them in and they can handle a wide variety of barcodes. They are also programmable if you need to do something special, like disable the confirmation beep. (We do that so they are silent in the reading room.) I have not done comparison shopping lately, but we purchased a number of scanners (and got a quanitiy discount) from Barcode Factory in 2019. We went with SKU: 1250G-2USB-1-N, which includes the scanner, USB-A cable, and stand. I'd be happy to answer any additional questions about the scanners. Additional specs are here: https://sps.honeywell.com/us/en/products/productivity/barcode-scanners/general-purpose-handheld/voyager-1250g-general-duty-scanner.
Thank you so much, Julie! I will share this information with the library.
