Guest We are looking for a bar code system solution where we can track our trucks entering the main gate of our premises. The system we are looking for is to have the bar code at the truck and a scanner that would read it once it passes the gate.

Depending on the environmental concerns and speed at which the truck will be moving we have several options for an automated scanning solution. On the more basic side we have the Motorola DS457 which can be housed in a protective enclosure for slow moving scans while the Cognex Dataman 200 will be best for a faster moving situation. Both of these units can interface with a PC in a variety of ways to collect and manage the incoming trucks using a custom application we can design for you. We can collect each scan as well as control the access of each vehicle to your facility.
