Barcode device hardware includes bar code printing device, bar code scanning device, data acquisition device, bar code detection device and other wireless network devices. The bar code device software includes: bar code printing software, bar code system, bar code data collector terminal software.
What are their corresponding functions? Please see below:
Bar code printing device
Bar code printing equipment is the main means of generating barcodes, and can also be produced by letterpress printing, gravure printing, offset printing, and the like. Bar code printing equipment At present, we mainly refer to bar code printers. Although general laser printers and inkjet printers can also generate barcodes, they are only used in shipping orders or customs declarations because they are slow to print and cannot print large quantities of stickers. The printing of barcodes on single receipts.
Barcode printers can print a wide variety of self-adhesive labels, whether your label is coated paper on the outer box or PET film attached to the product, it can help you achieve clear and perfect printing results.
2. Barcode scanning equipment
A barcode scanning device is a device for reading bar code information and needs to be connected to a computer for use. It uses an optical device to convert the stripe information of the barcode into level information, which is then translated into corresponding data information by a dedicated decoder. The barcode scanning device can be divided into three types: CCD, laser and image. The scanning mode is divided into two types: handheld and fixed. It is divided into wired scanner and wireless scanner from the data transmission mode. The upper part is divided into a one-dimensional barcode scanner and a two-dimensional barcode scanner from a barcode recognition type through a barcode scanner and a durable barcode scanner.
3. Data acquisition equipment
The data acquisition device can not only read bar code information but also perform data processing. The data collector device has a central processing unit (CPU), a read only memory (ROM), a readable and writable memory (RAM), a keyboard, a screen display, a communication interface, Battery, these data processing functions are far from comparable to bar code scanning equipment, with real-time acquisition, automatic storage, instant display, instant feedback, automatic processing, automatic transmission. It provides guarantee for the authenticity, validity, real-time and availability of on-site bar code data.
4. Wireless network equipment
The wireless network device is a device for wireless data uploading with a wireless data acquisition device. At present, a wireless local area network (WLAN) and a wide area network (WLAN) are formed by using a wireless transmission protocol such as 802.11a/GPRS/CDMA.
5. Bar code detection equipment
Bar code detection equipment is a detection tool for parameters such as bar code level. Bar code is a kind of data carrier, which plays an important role in the information transmission process. If there is a problem with the bar code, the communication of the item information will be interrupted. Therefore, bar code quality must be effectively controlled to ensure that bar code symbols can be correctly read in the supply chain, and bar code detection equipment is an effective tool to achieve this goal.
6. Barcode printing software
Bar code printing software is a tool for bar code label printing with bar code printing equipment. Bar code printing software can be customized for development. It can also use general-purpose bar code printing software. The customized printing software has accurate label positioning, no editing, no setting, etc. Features are favored by many customers who need stable printing. The universal printing software has the flexibility of editing labels, enabling label printing. In general, the custom-developed printing software sends the barcode label format to the barcode machine through instructions, and the general-purpose printing software sends the barcode label format to the barcode machine through the driver.
7. Bar code system
Bar code system is a kind of bar code application. It is a function improvement of bar code equipment. Bar code system can realize functions such as inbound and outbound management, inventory management, production traceability, logistics traceability, and asset management.
8. Barcode data collector terminal software
The barcode data collector terminal software is a tool for realizing barcode data processing, process design and data transmission with data acquisition equipment.
