|Light Source||Visible light: 660nm LED
To read a barcode symbol, it is illuminated by a scanner. Light is reflected back in varying amounts, depending on the bars and spaces. These differences are translated into signals by a light detector inside the scanner. The signals are converted into various combinations to stand for specific characters.
Infrared: 930nm LED
In the case of infrared barcodes, a layer of security is added to an otherwise low-security technology. Special black obscuration panels cover the barcode label to prevent photocopying, making it readable only by an infrared barcode reader.
