Since the Inateck - Barcode Scanner Wireless can scan with or without cable (up to 60 m) and is equipped with an inventory function and an extremely long battery capacity, it is also suitable for larger stores. In addition, it is possible to store up to 5,000 codes on the device and various programs facilitate the work of different tasks. Only the weight is a disadvantage in this case, as the scanner gets heavy in the hand after some time. The installation is done within seconds and super easy. If you have any questions, the detailed and very good manual will help you. Accordingly, this device is almost unconditionally recommendable.
The Inateck - Barcode Scanner Wireless can be used with either cable or wireless and comes with detailed instructions. In addition to various practical programs, it has a very long battery life and a scan distance of up to 60 m.
The packaging of the scanner is simply described. This barcode scanner is with a weight of 199 g the heaviest in the test, which becomes to its disadvantage, as after working with the device for a longer time, the hand can get heavy. The device itself is well made and has a modern design. A TPU rubber protection layer acts as a shock and impact absorber.
In just a few moments, the device can be set up with or without cables. A cable application connects the scanner to the computer and for wireless use, an adapter is plugged into the USB port of the computer. A word processing program or Excel should be open so that the device can immediately transfer the scans.
During the inventory setting of the wireless device, it is possible to work with Bluetooth up to a distance of 60 m. If there is no USB stick at the end device, the scanner transfers the data to Android devices via an OTG adapter.
The device has various options, functions and setting possibilities, such as permanent scanning by permanently activating the laser for many products, a volume control, hiding of unwanted codes, the setting of prefix and suffix as well as the memory of up to 5.000 barcodes in the inventory setting. In addition, several output options are available in addition to other functions. All settings made remain stored when the device is switched off.
According to the manufacturer, various types of barcodes are supported: among others EAN, Code 128, UPC, USPS, FedEx, VIN, Code 32. In the test, the following barcodes could not be recognized or could only be recognized incorrectly: Code25, EAN-5, EAN-2, PZN7, PZN8, MSI Plessey, PostNet and Royal Mail. When testing EAN-5, the first digit is ignored by the scanner, whereas for PZN7 and PZN8 letters are replaced by an eszett.
The operating instructions for this device are the best in the overall test. Programming and settings are described in detail, as are various tones and LED displays. An FAQ makes troubleshooting very easy. The most important commands are summarized on a card.
Another huge advantage of the device is that it can scan for up to a month without charging.
