POWERSCAN® PM8500
Industrial Handheld Area
Imager Bar Code Reader with
Datalogic’s STAR Cordless
System
The PowerScan 8000 product series is
Datalogic Scanning’s premium line of rugged
industrial handheld data collection products.
The PowerScan PM8500 cordless area imager
offers omnidirectional reading of 1D and 2D
codes combined with unlimited mobility
guaranteed by the Datalogic STAR Cordless
System™.
The PowerScan PM8500 reader’s feature a
high-resolution Mega-Pixel imaging sensor
that is capable of outstanding performance
in industrial applications. It is offered in
three optic models: Standard Range and
High Density models are for typical bar
code reading conditions (for medium and
high-resolution codes respectively); the Wide
Angle model offers a wider field of view
allowing the capture of larger and longer
codes.
The Datalogic STAR Cordless System
applications to networking capabilities. An
optional display with a 3-key keypad provides
useful information to the operator like time
and battery status and enables interaction
with the host. The high capacity Lithium-Ion
battery can be replaced in few seconds and
charged on the cradle as well on a separate
multi-battery charger.
The PM8500 readers feature Datalogic’s
exclusive 3GL™ (3 Green Lights) for superior
good read feedback. The patented ‘Green
Spot’ directly on the code and dual Good
Read LEDs on the top and back of the cap
adds increased visibility at any angle.
The PM8500 reader’s mechanics have been
developed and tested to withstand extreme
environmental conditions maintaining
consistent reading capability without
degrading performance or reliability. Its
ergonomic enclosure is lightweight and well
balanced to ensure optimal operator comfort
during scan intensive operations. A built-in
metal tether hook for suspended applications
ensures workplace productivity.
