With the Duet Dual Action Bar Code Reader retailers can now scan anything at the point-of-sale, small items, large bulky items, even items that aren't individually bar coded. Now retailers can provide quicker checkouts and enjoy the benefits of increased accuracy of the "scan data". With two scan windows the scanner can easily adapt to either fixed or handheld scanning applications. When used as a countertop scanner, it is quick and easy to use. When used as a handheld scanner, the operator simply picks up the scanner and aims at one single bar code.
