Datalogic Scanning Inc. has announced the launch of the PowerScan 8000 Series of rugged industrial-strength handheld readers. Designed and constructed with additional optics and interfaces to withstand the toughest environmental conditions, the PowerScan 8000 delivers performance to satisfy even the most demanding applications.
Now customers can take advantage of the very best technology the industry has to offer, said Pietro Todescato, General Manager of Handheld Readers for Datalogic Scanning. The new PowerScan series synthesises and further enhances the ten years of design, technology, and experience based upon the PowerScan, Dragon, and Lynx handheld readers. The new reader builds upon our long legacy of success and a demonstrated track-record of proven performance in demanding environments.
In addition to its ruggedness and durability, the PowerScan 8000 boasts an ergonomically designed handle and well-balanced weight for ease-of-use. For feedback in noisy environments, and superior good read feedback from any position, the high-performance Datalogic 3GL Technology (Three Green Lights) incorporates GreenSpot Technology as well as Double Good-Read LED Technology. The 3GL Technology is a distinctive characteristic of all PowerScan 8000 industrial handheld readers, showcasing the latest innovations in handheld reader technology.
Operator mobility is crucial in industrial applications, not only to increase efficiency, but also to optimise safety. The Datalogic STAR cordless system increases productivity and flexibility in the work area by offering scalable solutions, from simple point-to-point applications to more complex networks and seamless roaming projects. Both an input and an output device, the powerful bi-directional communication protocol of the PowerScan 8000 handheld reader, combined with an optional display and three push-button keypad not only allow the operator to receive information, but to also actively interact with the host.
The PowerScan 8000 Series of handheld readers comes as either a corded or cordless model. It offers a choice of Standard or Auto Range Laser with a range from a few centimetres to over 10 meters and a 2D mega-pixel sensor for omni-directional reading of 1D, stacked and 2D barcodes.
