Metrologic Instruments, Inc. has released its new vertical mini-slot scanner engineered to increase productivity with an unmatched feature set.
The MS7820 Solaris aggressively scans high-density codes (five mil) and fits easily into any existing enclosure found in small-item, high-volume retail environments. It is designed for a variety of retail environments, including convenience, liquor (off-license), specialty and grocery stores.
"We developed Solaris to increase system output and lower the total cost of ownership," said Taylor Smith, product manager for Metrologic. "It scans the widest range of bar codes from high-density to poor quality codes, and its troubleshooting visual diagnostic indicator and optional protective window reduce on-site service costs and downtime."
Solaris sets itself apart from other comparable devices with its unrivaled feature set and advanced decoding architecture which enable operators to scan all standard bar codes on the first pass with minimal concern for orientation or print quality.
Multiple on-board interfaces make Solaris compatible with most POS systems, while automatic detection of the interface cable expedites system configuration. For investment protection, all Solaris scanners come standard with an integrated RF antenna and interlock compatibility for both Checkpoint and Sensormatic EAS systems. The scanner's multifunctional RS232 auxiliary port provides a single point of communication for either a hand-held scanner or external scale.
While the scanner's innovative flat-screen design maximizes scanning effectiveness by preventing debris accumulation, touch-screen technology minimizes wear and tear associated with standard scanner switches.
Metrologic complements the design and engineering of Solaris with superior technical support and an industry-leading warranty. Solaris symbolizes Metrologic's four-decade commitment to producing advanced and reliable bar code scanning technology.
