Datalogic's Magellan 8500Xt High Performance In-Counter Scanners and Scanners/Scales heightens product scanning accuracy and productivity for small and large retailer businesses, increasing customer satisfaction with reduced wait times.

Enhanced Design
The Magellan 8500Xt model allows an amazing 64 can lines and a read rate of 6400 lines per second on both the X and Y axis with dual scan surfaces.

The scanner/scale model reduces shrinkage at check-out by pinpoint accuracy in weight measurement aided by the optional produce rail; under most circumstances only calibration is required to ensure maximized performance and best ROI.

Datalogic's AllWeights(tm) scale platter and certified weighing system grants lightening-quick scale reset times of less than 500 milliseconds, providing maximum throughput and eliminates check-out drag times which improves cost-efficiency and customer satisfaction for retailers. Optional Checkpoint(r) and Sensormatic(r) integrated EAS antennas ensure proper data capture before disabling the EAS tag, further reducing shrinkage possibilities.

Configuration Options
The short-topped Magellan 8500Xt Scanner, no EAS, presents Universal I/F configuration with Sapphire Glass and USB connectivity and a US/CAN scale.

The long-topped Magellan 8500Xt Scanner/Scale model, with Checkpoint EAS, presents either a Standard English Single Interval Scale Configuration with Sapphire Glass, or the Standard Metric Single Interval Scale Configuration with DLC Glass. Connectivity is provided via the RS-232 Single Cable, and also with a US/CAN scale.

Symbologies and Software
The Magellan 8500Xt Scanner and Scanner/Scale decode 1D/Linear labels including GS1 DataBar(tm) linear codes, as well as stacked codes including GS1 DataBar Extended Stack, Stacked, and Stacked Omnidirectional codes for optimized versatility in data comprehension and transmittal.

The Scanner and Scanner/Scale models allow interface connectivity with auxiliary port configuration, RS-232, USB Multi-interface, and IBM 46XX options, extending compatibility with retail operations and minimizing additional equipment purchase, thereby improving retailers ROI.

Summary
The retail industry finds increased satisfaction, greater shrink management, and improved check-out throughput with Datalogic's Magellan 8500Xt Scanners and Scanner/Scales for maximized profit margins.
