Warehouses, logistic centers and manufacturing plants depend on speed and reliability when managing goods and tracking merchandise in order to improve efficiency while reducing costs. Datalogic’s PowerScan™ is the latest generation of rugged 2D area imagers and the perfect answer for these applications.
An intuitive and effortless scanning experience is the target of the PowerScan™ family of scanners. It combines omnidirectional reading capabilities with outstanding optical characteristics. The result is a scanner that is able to read any kind of bar code, regardless of the orientation, from contact to over 1.0 m / 3.3 ft, depending on the bar code resolution. In addition, it includes Datalogic’s latest decoding software that guarantees snappy reading in any type of environment.
User comfort is guaranteed because of the scanner ergonomics, consisting of the handle shape, a well-balanced weight and an intuitive aiming system, allowing the highest first-pass reading rate while reducing unnatural wrist movement or rotation which can tire any user during long shifts. Additionally, the PowerScan uses a soft-pulsed white illumination light resulting in reduced flashes, which is very gentle on the eyes and less troublesome to the operator during scan-intensive applications.
PowerScan 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. A new aiming system consists of a central cross and four dots in the corners. This will clearly identify the captured area and allows intuitive and fast scanning.
The PowerScan PBT9500 Bluetooth version provides the freedom of mobility to move around a warehouse without the entanglement of cables. As an option, the base/charger may include both standard Ethernet and Industrial Ethernet protocols such as Ethernet IP and Modbus.
