Bar Code ID Card Hardware Requirements
To utilize bar code ID cards at your location, you will need the following hardware:
- USB interface bar code scanner.
- To configure the scanner, plug it into an available USB port.
- To test the bar code scanner, open Notepad and scan any available bar code.
- If the bar code populates followed by a carriage return, the scanner is functioning properly.
Note: Many locations utilize the Honeywell Orbit MS7120 Bar Code Reader (part #MK7120-31A38), which costs between $250 - $300.
Note: It is possible to manually enter bar codes into Others, but utilizing a scanning will increase your efficiency.
- Lamination machine.
Note: Many locations utilize the GBC HeatSeal H110 Badge and Photo Size Laminator.
- Lamination pouches.
