Advanced handheld barcode readers deliver cutting-edge performance for the toughest codes.

Consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies use barcodes to track products from production to the point of sale. Labels may have poorly printed, low-contrast, scratched, or otherwise hard-to-read codes. A failure to scan a code on a package along the supply chain can slow down production lines and cause costly reprints, wasted product, and retailer chargebacks. And many industries with product safety concerns have quality standards or International Organization for Standardization (ISO) guidelines that must be met.

Barcode verifiers grade the quality of codes to ensure they meet quality thresholds. Verifiers require calibration and use specified lighting to meet ISO standards. An overall grade (usually A through F) is assigned based on several parameters such as symbol contrast, modulation, pattern damage, and decodability. By monitoring verification results, code issues can be identified when quality starts to decline so corrective action can be taken right away. Verification software also generates reports to certify code quality, limiting costly chargebacks.
