Industrial Mobile Laser Barcode Scanner

Product Rating
Product Overview

Datalogic's PowerScan readers are the top rated industrial handheld data collection products on the market. Synthesizing knowledge and experience, Datalogic is evolving the PowerScan family to include the PowerScan M8300 series: cordless laser bar code readers featuring state-of-the-art performance for rugged industrial use.

The PowerScan PM8300 series includes different models able to satisfy all customers' needs, the PM8300 is the basic cordless model, the PM8300-D intermediate model includes a display and 3 key keypad, and the ultimate PM8300-DK model features a display and a full 16 key keyboard. The PM8300- DK model significantly increases the sophistication of interaction with the host system and opens up new potential uses of the scanner, making it suitable for applications that would normally require a more expensive portable data terminal.
