The Zapper Tornado reads most 1D linear-stacked barcodes, including GS1 Databar (formerly known as RSS), making it an ideal scanner and a sound future-proof investment.

Any scanner can read perfect barcode labels, but the Tornado will quickly and accurately read the low contrast, damaged, smudged, poorly-printed barcode labels that are commonly found in the real world, with a huge depth of field – up to 40cm reading distance for 100% UPC/EAN symbols.

With the ability to automatically switch between hand-held scanning and presentation scanning simply by placing the scanner into the SmartStand or Cradle, the Zapper Tornado™ and is also one of the most versatile scanners available.

The Zapper Tornado is part of ASP’s versatile Zapper Tornado family. See the matrix below for the all members of the family, and click on any model name to find out more.
