Datalogic PowerScan™ PM8300-DK Quick Reference Guide

Using the PowerScan™ PM8300-DK

The PowerScan™ PM8300-DK series readers can be used with either an BC80X0 cradle or Stargate™ radio base station to build a Cordless Reading System for the collection, decoding and transmission of barcoded data.

PowerScan™ PM8300-DK laser readers automatically scan barcodes at a distance. Simply aim and pull the trigger.

Scan Line Position

Code scanning is performed along the scan line emitted from the reading window. This line must cross the entire code. The best reading angles are indicated in the figure below:
