1D Barcode Scanners
1D barcodes are linear barcode symbologies used for consumer goods, point-of-sale scanning, and a variety of other industries. Common types include UPC, EAN, Code 39 and more.
The characters in a 1D barcode must match up with information in a database to be meaningful. While any type of barcode scanner can read a one-dimensional barcode, two-dimensional barcodes require a 2D scanner.
