About CCD Barcode Scanners
CCD (Charge Coupled Device) Barcode Scanner use an imaging CCD (similar to the ones found in digital cameras) to take a picture of barcodes, that are then decoded into a sequence of characters. CCD Barcode Scanner have a very fast scan speed, but a low scan range (often less than 3 inches from the barcode). A CCD Barcode Scanner can be very durable because they do not contain any moving parts, but are limited because they cannot read any barcodes wider than the imaging element. Their low cost and speed make CCD Barcode Scanner well suited for point of sale applications, but their short read range makes them a poor choice for warehouse or industrial applications.
