They combine 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, Datalogic’s latest decoding software guarantees snappy reading in any type of environment.MOBILITY ENHANCES PRODUCTIVITYThe Datalogic STAR Cordless System™ for narrow-band radio communications was developed specifically to maximize efficiency and reliability for handheld scanner data collection applications. The PowerScan PM9500 models are equipped with a new generation of the STARSystem ™ that further improves the already outstanding features of versatility, ease of use and radio range.  The PM9500 series offers a model with a display and 4 configurable keys to increase the interaction between the host and the user allowing a two-way exchange of information for more reliable and effective communications.  Long lasting battery life guarantees more than one shift of intensive scanning.DEVELOPED WITH THE USER IN MINDHandle shape, well-balanced weight and an intuitive aiming system allows high first-pass reading rates while reducing unnatural wrist movements for improved ergonomics and user comfort.  The PowerScan 9500 area imagers use a soft-pulsed white illumination light that is very gentle on the eyes and less troublesome to the operator during scanintensive applications.
