The Super-Touch scanners are the latest in a long line of classic scanners
produced for over 20 years. During this time the scanner has proved to be
ultra reliable and is our lowest price general purpose barcode scanner.
The scanners are available in two types - Light and Pro. The Pro version
has more data formatting and editing features and has all the interface
options build in. The Light version is USB only. The Pro has improved
optics and is better able to read lower contrast barcodes.
These Super-Touch scanners can be used as a direct replacement for
the AL-5820, AL-5810, Simple-Scanner, DL65, DLC6060 and similar older models.
Just like these earlier models the Super-Touch scanners operate
by simply being 'touched' directly on the barcode.
I have supplied many educational libraries with this type of scanner for
over 20 years and while this is still the lowest priced scanner I believe
there is now a better class of scanner for library use. Particularly if you
have old stock with Plessey or Telepen barcodes or have a relatively high
throughput. Contact me direct for details.
Most people buy the standard width scanner (65mm) able to read
barcodes with a maximum width of 63mm. The Super-Touch can be obtained
with a wider body (90mm) and this can read barcodes up to 80mm wide.
However if you need to read barcodes wider than 60mm one of the newer
non-contact scanners is likely to be a better choice - ask me for
While most people prefer a USB interface. Other interfaces (KeyWedge and RS232)
are still available if you need to replace a scanner in a legacy system- just ask me.
Choose this scanner if you need to do a real job in a working environment
but have a limited budget and need the lowest possible priced serious scanner.
