Traditional laser scanners versus imagers in distribution centers
from Supply Chain Digest
Bar code scanning is one of the foundational technologies of most advanced distribution centers, and with RFID still slow to make its way into the DC, is likely to stay that way for years if not (almost) forever. Whether as a separate device tethered to a PC or data collection terminal, or as an integrated scan engine built into a wireless terminal, the choice of what scanner to use has become almost routine today in one sense, given the performance of today's scanning systems, which are far better than a decade ago. But when most people think of a scanner, they think in terms of a traditional laser scanner, in which the device generates a laser beam.
