Explanation: Difference between bar codes and stripe codes, I would think.
SEE THE FOLLOWING:
Bar Code and Magnetic Stripe Scanners and Decoders
Scans BAR CODES
The Omni scans bar codes printed on paper, card stock, or plastic. An infrared option is available for security-based applications, where bar codes are overprinted to prevent duplication.
Reads MAGNETIC STRIPES (also called mag stripes)
The Omni reads up to three tracks of information with a single swipe in either direction. In combination, the same Omni unit can read both bar code and magnetic stripe media. TTL, RS232, and keyboard wedge interfaces are available.
