Datalogic's Magellan 1000i On-Counter Presentation Omnidirectional Bar Code Reader incorporates new standards of versatility, flexibility, and performance for both retail Point-of-Service (POS) and office scanning applications.

Accurate Data Capture
The Magellan 1000i Bar Code Reader incorporates portability and digital scanning technology with wide angle capabilities to ensure accurate and complete bar code label data capture. Ergonomically designed, the lightweight on-counter scanner allows hand-held or hands-free operation, adapting to user preference and product diameters. Audio confirmation pairs with the Good Read confirmation to reduce duplicate or incomplete scan efforts and enhances customer satisfaction with quick check-out times.

Both visual and audio scans provide data capture confirmation and fully adapt to POS environments. Ambient light may restrict visual confirmation, but the volume-controlled beep reduced second-guessing and incomplete bar code label readings and incorrect data transfer.

Small, hard-to-read labels no longer present insurmountable difficulties with the Magellan 1000i's optional targeted mode for close-proximity codes.

Expanded Compatitility
The Magellan 1000i On-Counter scanner provides standard 1D/Linear and GS1 DataBar(tm) linear code capture as well as optional 2D Data Matrix codes for expanded operations without symbology downloads and delays. The bar code reader also provides the accurate capability for GS1 DataBar(tm), Expanded Stacked and Omnidirectional codes, promoting even more efficiency. But it doesn't stop there but provides the optional capability of reading PDF417 labels, as well.

Optional EAS hardware enables Checkpoint Systems operations with Counterpoint IV, V, VI, and VII models, as well.

The Magellan 1000i offers interface options that include IBM 46XX cash register compatibility, along with Keyboard Wedge, Wand, RS-232, RS-485, USB, and OEM-USB connectivity for maximum configuration options for retailers.

Efficient Design
The Magellan 1000i enables placement in tight check-out or office environments with its compact stature of only 2.3 x 2.9 x 3.8 inches (5.8 x 7.4 x 9.7 cm) profile on a riser stand or 3.3 x 2.8 x 3.7 inches (8.4 x7.1 x 9.4 cm) alone.

The omnidirectional bar code scanner presents a tremendous IP52 seal rating, enabling confident operations in harsh environments and survives repeated drops, saving maintenance costs and down-times.

Summary
For retail and office operations the Magellan 1000i On-Counter Bar Code Reader heightens operational efficiency and reliability in busy environments.
