The Flexibility You Need

Regardless of the types of barcodes you use from traditional 1D UPC codes on most consumer goods to 2D matrix or quick response (QR) codes, Miles Data offers an array of general purpose barcode scanners suitable for your applications. Our expert staff can help you choose a barcode scanner to meet your particular needs, whether you are scanning barcodes on labels, plastic wristbands or the screens of mobile devices. We can also help you find the solution that will deliver the performance you need for scanning at the speed, distances, and on the types of media you use.

The Need for Speed

You want to move products faster in order to meet demand. Barcode scanning is both accurate and fast. Data is captured with point and shoot ease, and today’s general purpose scanners have advanced sensors that can read at close or long range and at flexible angles. Reducing the need for exact positioning means your employees can get an accurate scan faster, enabling them to scan more times per hour or per shift. General purpose barcode scanners also feature rugged construction sealed for resistance to moisture and dust and able to withstand drops to keep on working and not slow you down.

All-Around Versatility

You want to get the most out of your investment when choosing a barcode scanning solution. You need devices that won’t wear out or break down quickly so you aren’t constantly dealing with repair and replacement or experiencing downtime. Rugged barcode scanners are designed with the highest standards of durability as well as performance. They will keep working reliably in the harshest conditions offering protection to dust, water and grease as well as handle repeated bumps or drops. Furthermore, they’re made for extensive use, all day, every day.
