Barcode Verifiers basically come in four different forms:
Portable barcode verifiers allow users to take the device to the barcode. Through multiple scans of the barcode, the verifier displays the results on the device’s LCD screen. The verifier may be set up to print a brief report of the analysis on a mobile printer, as written proof of the symbol’s quality.
PC tethered barcode verifiers typically attach to a desktop or laptop PC. While that doesn’t make them as mobile as a portable verifier, there are some advantages: the ability to save the verification report and / or send the data to a database, the ability to print the report on the local or network printer, and the ability to email the report to others. Fotel sells only ISO/IEC compliant barcode verifiers.

Fixed Mount barcode verifiers provide 100% verification in a conveyerized system on an automated, unattended basis. Some verifiers connect RS232, some via Ethernet, some are wireless. Linear and 2D symbols can be verified. Most fixed mount verifiers optionally trigger light stacks and / or audible alarms to signal user-defined performance parameters. Many barcode verification systems can also provide code match and serialization checks.
A Barcode Scanner is not the same as a Barcode Verifier. Don’t be fooled into thinking you can substitute a scanner for a verifier. They are not the same. Scanners of various makes and ages perform differently. One scanner may read a barcode while another won’t. Only an ANSI verifier can tell you how a barcode will perform, and how its performance may be deteriorating over the duration of a print run. Is it a good, solid ANSI "C" grade or is it a low "C" drifting toward a "D"? Only a verifier will tell you. Only a verifier will give you the eyes to see and the time to make a critical adjustment that can save the print run--and the customer.
