For 30 years I have been helping organisations and individuals with their Barcode and Auto ID issues but now I have decided it is time to move on and retire from being the Barcode Man.

I will continue to respond to emails from existing customers about their earlier purchases, their special programming configurations and warranty issues but I regret I cannot help with new purchases or issues nor recommend alternative products or sources.

PDF 8000 Scanner

Quick Links
PDF scanner

The PDF 8000 is a high performance barcode scanner aimed at professional users in the Office, Retail, Libraries, Health Care, Light Industrial and similar environments. The scanner is a well designed quality instrument. It is intuitive to use with no compromises on performance. It is aimed at those who want to get on with the job quickly and efficiently without having to be concerned about the scanner.

With the PDF 8000 your organisation is ready to scan the new high capacity PDF417 barcodes the moment they are introduced into the work place. The scanner reads these new barcodes in virtually the same way as your existing barcodes. The new technology can be introduced incrementally. Old and new barcodes can be read side by side without any changes to your hardware, applications software and current working methods.

If you are thinking of introducing barcode identification for the first time or simply want to upgrade your systems then you will be pleased with the new PDF8000.
