Scanner Green Spot Read Verification Technology

Posted November 9, 2016

grrenspotNot all barcode scanners are created equal. Some specialize in reading one type of code or another; some are better at distance reading. The barcode readers from AirTrack are capable of some additional special tasks.

The most important part of reading barcodes is to know that the device has successfully read the code in front of it. This confirmation is typically provided by a good-read ‘beep’. Depending on your environment, it is not always possible to hear the beep. In other situations such as hospital patient rooms or libraries, it is not desirable to have repeated ‘beeping’ occurring when scanning.

AirTrack’s ‘Green Spot’ technology for good-read feedback improves user performance by projecting a green spot directly on the bar code just read. This visual confirmation is perfect for applications where silent reading is preferred or in environments that are too noisy to hear the beep.

The ‘Green Spot’ is also effective when used to target a single code from a group of codes or to position a single code inside the reading area. When AirTrack readers are used in Stand Mode, the ‘Green Spot’ remains on and can work as an aiming system to help position the code for quick and intuitive reading.
