Flex can work with a variety of barcode scanners and printers. We strongly recommend choosing from the list of recommendations found on our BarcodesInc.com site.
We recommend considering where your scanning/printing stations will be placed and what kind of mobility you want when scanning before purchasing equipment. For some customers, a corded scanner works fine. But for others, a cordless scanner is the ideal choice. Paying the extra cost for the cordless scanners is entirely up to you and what you can afford.
You can find a variety of recommended barcode scanners on our BarcodesInc.com site.
One of the most popular scanners that Flex customers use is the Motorola LI4278. This mid-range priced scanner is wireless (connects via a USB cradle) and durable.
Keep in mind, the Motorola LI4278 is only capable of scanning 1D barcodes, and does not have a keypad.
Check out the other recommendations on our BarcodesInc.com site if you are looking for a scanner with a keypad, or a scanner that is capable of reading 2D barcodes. We have Bluetooth scanners listed on our website.
You can find a variety of recommended barcode printers and barcode labels on our BarcodesInc.com site.
When choosing a printer, consider where the printer will be placed, and if you need a WiFi connection for the printer, or just a wired ethernet connection.
Most barcode printers can be programmed to support a variety of barcode label sizes. Flex support can help you set up different label templates in your Flex system.
