Is Electrical Interference Affecting Your Barcode Systems?

Your barcode data collection system is usually comprised of several components including but not limited to wireless mobile computers, cordless barcode scanners, label printers, and connection devices such as routers, cables, and wireless access points.

Industrial barcode data collection systems typically have some or all of the components shown here. Know the possible causes of interference, symptoms and remedies to prevent the problems in your warehouse environment.

So it may seem sensible to look at one, several or all the components as the culprit when you notice strange things happening or equipment failures. After all, the system was checked and tested prior to installation and going live, right?

In an industrial environment, electrical interference may be causing these symptoms and these can lead to bigger problems, such as system shut downs. These problems can be avoided.

Dr. Peter Green, of Bellhawk Systems Corporation, has written a white paper entitled “Preventing Electrical Interference Problems in Industrial Barcode Data Collection Systems.”

Often users blame the software or the equipment as being intermittently defective when, in fact, the real cause is often electrical interference. In this paper, we identify possible causes of interference, their symptoms, and remedies to prevent the problems.”
