Inventory mode

Connection Ways:

Bluetooth Mode: With the built-in Bluetooth 5.0 module, you can connect the barcode scanner with your phone, tablet, laptop and other devices without adapters.

Decoding Ability
Support On-screen Barcode: The scanner is capable of reading all 1D and mainstream 2D barcodes on paper and screen.

*Due to different decoding algorithms, laser scanners have more advantage when reading long barcodes. If you often scan long 1D barcodes with 20 or more digits, and require high scanning speed, we recommend the Inateck BCST-70 barcode scanner.
