It incorporates miniature Linear CMOS Imaging technology from Symbol Technologies, and is able to scan all popular linear barcode symbol sets. It only uses about 57 mA of power during scanning, which maximizes battery life. The SocketScan keyboard emulation software sends decoded data as virtual keystrokes to most applications. Better yet, purchase the OrganizeIT Suite for $299 and get the scanner and software together! You’ll be able to organize your video and music collections, and then pull data about the scanned barcodes from the Internet into a searchable database that can be exported into Excel.
