Here the full list of all kinds of OEM barcode scanners modules, TTL or RS232/ USB interface; read bar codes from paper or from phone screen; for general use or for scanning special bar codes， for example: read ultra-tiny Data matrix code, or read long-range bar codes, or read big PDF417 code... all of them are outstanding in some terms, read details below for more information.
How to choose the most suitable 2d OEM barcode scanner module from RTscan:
If you need an OEM barcode scanner module for general use/ scan usual bar code (here the “usual” means not very big or not very small, not high density), then you can choose RT207, RT206 or our newly released (In 2020) super small 2d module RT214, all of them are very small size, while the RT207 with its decoder board and imager camera apart and the RT206 and RT214 with decoder board and imager built together. If you use the scanner for a handheld terminal, then you can choose the RT214/RT206 which easier to be fixed in a handheld terminal, and if you use the scanner inside a vending machine/kiosk, then you can choose the RT207, the RT207’s imager head even smaller than RT206. Both RT206 and RT207 is very cost-effective since they are the highest volume produced. But RT214 now (in 2020 became the most hot-sales scanner module).
If you want a high-level 2d scanner engine for general use/scan usual bar codes, then you can choose the RT208, which performs excellently. But its cost is higher than the others.
Conclusion: In terms of performance: RT214 ≈ RT207≈RT206<RT208; In terms of price: RT214<RT207<RT206<RT208; In terms of dimension: RT214<RT207 (imager head)<RT206<RT208
If you need a fixed mount type scanner (with USB/ RS232 interface) for the usual bar code, then you can choose RT870, RT225, or RT230H. They built with a fixed mount and with USB / RS232 interface. (More details, please refer to https://www.rtscan.net/barcode-readers/fixed-mount-barcode-readers/)
If you need one OEM scanner module to scan a very long 1D bar code or PDF417 code in an ID card/ passport/ driver’s license, then you can choose the RT209/ RT212.
If you need to scan a small Data matrix code that printed on a small chip/object, then you can choose the RT208.
If the Data Matrix code is ultra-small and also high density, then you can choose the RT231 which equipped with a Magnifying glass.
If you need a scanner to read Aztec code, you can choose RT203. If for Maxicode, choose the RT203.
All of them can read the inverse bar code.
All of them support automatic detection and reading bar codes.
All of them can be control by commands.
All of them support sensing mode, command trigger mode, continuous mode.
RT206/RT207/RT208/RT209/RT212/RT214 with TTL interface, RT203 is scan engine with both TTL and USB interface (USB version without beeper), RT235/RT230H are fixed mount barcode scanner with USB/RS232 interface.
