Aim, trigger, decode - the Powerscan range delivers up-to-the minute accuracy

All warehouse managers know that speed and reliability when managing goods and tracking merchandise can help to improve efficiency while reducing costs.

In order to achieve these goals, many of your warehouse and logistics customers will turn to 2D area imagers. These devices offer a number of features that ensure fast scanning and accurate results.

Datalogic is a leader in rugged scanning devices and its PowerScan family offers the most complete rugged industrial handheld scanners on the market.

Amongst the advanced features that set the PowerScan 9500 series apart is the new aiming system, consisting of a central cross and four dots in the corners which clearly identifies the captured area and allows intuitive and fast scanning even in poor lighting conditions. Datalogic’s patented green spot technology provides good read feedback to the user directly on the barcode.

The goal of the PowerScan 9500 is to provide an intuitive and effortless scanning experience. It achieves this through a combination of omnidirectional reading capabilities with outstanding optical characteristics. The result is a scanner that is able to read any kind of barcode, regardless of the orientation, from contact to over 1.0 m / 3.3 ft, depending on the barcode resolution.

These characteristics mean the PowerScan is the ideal choice for many warehouse and logistics use cases, such as:

• Shipping and receiving
• Parcel preparation
• Picking and put away
• Automatic sorting back-up
• End of line sorting.

Among the models of the PowerScan are the PD9500 area imager, which includes Datalogic’s latest decoding software guaranteeing rapid reading in any type of environment. Aim, trigger, decode: it’s simple!

Also available is the PowerScan PBT9500 area imager, a mobile scanner with Bluetooth wireless technology. It includes all of the scanning features associated with the PowerScan 9500 family and provides the freedom of mobility to move around a warehouse without the entanglement of cables.

The PowerScan PBT9500 imager is equipped with the most advanced optics from Datalogic, including a ‘liquid lens’ which allows the imager to adapt the focus at different distances. The result is a versatile optic that is able to satisfy any scanning need with a single scanner.

Finally, the rugged mechanics of the PowerScan brand guarantees reliable, long term operation in all warehouse environments.
