Powerscan PBT9500

POwerscan PBT9500 Rugged Scanner


Developed with the user in mind

An intuitive and effortless scanning experience is the target of the PowerScan™ 9500 series. They combine omnidirectional reading capabilities, typical in all area imaging scanners, 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.

The PowerScan PBT9500 further enhances operator efficiency and safety with Bluetooth® wireless technology; no matter if you need 1 or 100 meters of freedom: you never need to worry about getting tangled up in the cable. Accurate power management allows long lasting battery life to always guarantee more than one shift of intensive scanning. Should you need to operate for 24 hours, a quick 3-second battery replacement combined with a single or multi-slot battery charger allows for continuous operation without interruption. The BC9180-BT base/charger also includes in one model two different Ethernet connections: Standard Ethernet and Industrial Ethernet protocols such as Ethernet IP and Modbus.

Handle 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 scan-intensive applications.
