Industrial scanners

Once you've determined what you need scanned, it's time to do a thorough assessment of your physical environment. What is the temperature? Is it a humid loading dock in Florida or a refrigeration unit in a meatpacking plant? Will there be extreme temperature changes that can cause condensation to leak into the unit and interfere with operation?

You also need to consider the cleanliness of the scanning environment. Will you be operating in a tidy clothing store or a dusty warehouse? Finally, what is the likelihood of abuse to the device? Are there forklifts in the area that could run over a dropped scanner or other obstacles such as drawers or equipment that can cut cables?

Scanners are generally classified into two categories-retail and industrial. Retail scanners are designed for environments that are clean, temperature controlled and well lit. Industrial scanners are made to withstand harsher environments. They are typically sealed against wind, dust and rain, can withstand multiple drops to concrete and can operate in extreme temperatures. To ensure that your scanner is rugged enough for your environment, make sure it is sealed to the appropriate levels and that the drop and temperature ratings are consistent with your environment.
