The PowerScan PD9500-RT imager is a corded scanner with rugged mechanics that guarantee reliable long-term operation in the retail sector. Repeated shocks at the POS checkout or outdoor usage do not inhibit the scanner’s performance or reliability, protecting the retailer’s investment. Plus, the IP65 rating further guarantees protection from damages caused by exposure to moisture.
The PowerScan Retail 9500 series is the first handheld scanner on the market capable of reading digital watermarks including Digimarc Barcodes. This application significantly reduces time at the checkout. Plus, product packaging that carries Digimarc Barcodes can connect mobile-enabled shoppers with additional product information, special offers, recommendations, reviews, social networks and more.
Warehouses, logistic centres and manufacturing plants depend on speed and reliability when managing goods and tracking merchandise in order to improve efficiency while reducing costs. Therefore, Datalogic’s PowerScan PD9500 area imager, the latest generation of rugged 2D area imagers, is the perfect answer for these applications.
An intuitive and effortless scanning experience is the target of the PowerScan 9500 family, and it combines omnidirectional reading capabilities, which is typical in all area imaging scanners, with outstanding optical characteristics. The result is a scanner that’s able to read any kind of bar code, regardless of the orientation, from contact to over 1.0 m, depending on the bar code resolution. In addition, the PowerScan PD9500 area imager includes Datalogic’s latest decoding software that guarantees snappy reading in any type of environment. Aim, trigger, and decode: it is that simple!
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 9500 area imager 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.
The PowerScan PD9500 area imager is available in two different models to meet the specific needs of each customer. The PD9530 model is geared towards customers needing high reading performance and speed on standard resolution codes. The PD9530-HP (High Performance) model is more versatile because of the advanced optics that combine high resolution bar code reading capability (up to 2.5 mils for linear codes) and wide angle image capture (A4 image size @ 25cm), while maintaining an exceptional depth-of-field.
Available in South Africa from Kemtek Imaging Systems, the PowerScan Retail series is for users who want to incorporate the durability of PowerScan imagers into a retail environment.
