A barcode scanner usually consists of three different parts including the illumination system, the sensor, and the decoder. In general, a barcode scanner scans the black and white elements of a barcode by illuminating the code with a red light, which is then converted into matching text. This converted text is delivered by the scanner to a computer software system holding a database of the maker, cost, and quantity of all products sold.
