The SST BC130 portable barcode reader is the perfect tool for collecting card data in the field. The large 2 line backlit LCD display indicates correctly and incorrectly swiped cards, provides an immediate readout of available memory and number of cards stored and can also show card data. The backlight turns off automatically after a few seconds of inactivity to preserve battery power. In addition, green and red lights give a simple go/no-go indication, and a yellow light indicates charging. A programmable internal beeper can also provide a good/bad beep if desired.

All stored data can be retrieved using the download software and cable. The data can easily be used with Excel or any database program. Applications include time and attendance tracking, trade show lead management, classroom attendance, labor tracking, and more.

The BC130 comes complete with batteries installed, AC adapter, user manual, download cable and software.
