How to clean the barcode scanner to make it last longer?

In order to prolong the service life of the bar code scanner, it is necessary to clean the bar code scanner regularly, so what aspects to clean, how to clean, and what aspects to pay attention to in the cleaning process, we must understand these matters about the bar code scanner, so as to better maintain the bar code scanner.

The four cleaning steps make the bar code scanner life longer. The specific steps are as follows:

1. Cleaning the housing

We all have this experience: when you directly wipe the surface of a dusty object with a wet cloth, the surface will be very scratched. Therefore, * first take a dry and soft cotton cloth to remove the floating ash covered on the shell of the barcode scanner, and then wipe it again with a wet cloth, so that the dust can be basically "eliminated". If there are still some other stains on the shell at this time, we can dip some washing powder on the wet cloth to remove them. After cleaning, use a clean damp cloth to repeatedly wipe the place stained with washing powder several times.

When cleaning the shell, we should pay attention not to touch the bar code scanner glass plate. At the same time, we should wring the wet cloth as far as possible to avoid dirty water flowing out to pollute the flat glass during the wiping process.

2. Cleaning glass plate

After the shell is basically dry, open the upper cover of the barcode scanner and blow several times with a blowing balloon at the flat glass to "drive away" the dust attached to the surface. For stains that cannot be blown away, use glass cleaner to clean them, and then wipe them with soft dry cotton cloth. As whether the glass panel is clean or not is directly related to the scanning quality of the image, we must be careful when cleaning the panel.

3. Cleaning internal optical components

Next, we can open the flat glass of the barcode scanner and clean the optical components inside the barcode scanner. Generally speaking, the shell and base of the barcode scanner are stuck together, so it can be easily removed without a screwdriver. In the optical components, we need to focus on the cleaning of the fluorescent tube of the bar code scanner: dip a degreased cotton ball in distilled water, then squeeze the water on the cotton ball out (to ensure that no water will flow out during the wiping process), and gently wipe it back and forth on the lamp tube. Because the optical components are relatively *, the action should be light and stable when cleaning these devices.

4. Clean the transmission

The sliding rod on the driving mechanism of bar code scanner is another key point we should pay attention to. Generally, when there is noise in the working process of bar code scanner, it is likely to be the problem of sliding bar. At this time, we can find some lubricating oil and apply it evenly on the sliding rod to improve the lubrication of the machinery in the transmission mechanism.

After the above cleaning work is completed, install and debug the barcode scanner in the correct order, and then the cleaning of the barcode scanner is completed.
