Smart Slot J

List Price $450


The Smart Slot J series are decoded barcode slot readers (internal decoding) designed to be used in any application which requires the swiping of a barcode from a card, such as licenses, student id's, and employee id's. Since the decoding is internal to the Smart Slot J, no wedge reader or external device is required. These readers are available in many different industry standard interfaces, are programmable, and are available with a variety of options, such as leds, alphanumeric displays, and relays.
