General Description

Datalogic’s new reader can operate up to 24 cm from the barcode. Datalogic achieves this with innovative optic design coupled with cutting edge LED technology.

This depth of field has hitherto only been achieved with laser scanners. CCD scanners were previously reserved for contact reading. The Point & Shoot CCD Scanner copes easily with both types of scanning situations. By removing moving parts this scanner provides the additional bonus of improved reliability.

After careful market analysis focused on determining operational needs for barcode acquisition applications in retail, banks, post offices and insurance companies, Datalogic found that the user typically holds a reader at a distance of between 3 cm and 18 cm from the barcode. They have defined this as the instinctive reading distance.

On the basis of this information, Datalogic designed the new reader offering the best performance in this instinctive reading field. The result is a gun shaped reader that is compact, robust, easy to handle and lightweight. Its simplicity of use and ergonomics make it suitable for retail, commercial and office applications.

Barcode scanning acquisition is aggressive and reliable with unique operator feedback. In additon to the beeper, the scanner uses Datalogic’s sophisticated Green Spot optical system with a concentrated illumination beam, facilitating correct alignment on the barcode and guaranteeing good reading feedback directly on the code. This is particularly useful in noisy environments.

A single multi-interface model (Wedge, USB, RS232 and Wand) provides flexibility and full compatibility with the different systems by simply replacing the plug-in cables.

In addition, the scanner reads Reduced Space Symbology (RSS), an emerging symbology that can be printed on smaller labels, meeting emerging market needs for a larger amount of data on a single code.

Like all Datalogic barcode readers, The Point & Shoot Scanner has undergone a variety of tests to assure that it can withstand daily use in standard operating environments. The tests done in DATALOGIC's research departments and quality assurance laboratories result in a reader that is long lasting and meets all the requested quality standards in the market.

Altek Instruments Ltd are Datalogic approved suppliers of this and other scanners via their BarcodeMan Web site and provide full ongoing support.

Barcode Man

Lasers have hitherto been the only choice when the scanner needs to have an extended depth of field in variable barcode/scanner distance situations. But laser scanners need an oscillating or rotating mirror and this moving mechanical part is often the first part to fail.

The long range CCD scanner is a relatively new development made possible by the very high light output now being achieved with advanced LED technology combined with Datalogic’s optics design experience.

The Point & Shoot scanner no moving optical parts yet achieves a depth of field comparable to many hand held laser scanners. It is a hardworking and reliable scanner suitable for commercial and light industrial applications.

The scanner also uses Datalogic's "green spot" technology, which gives visual "good read" feedback directly on the code, where the user usually tends to be looking, proving particularly useful in noisy environments.

I recommend it.

Scanners with USB interface

USB is often the best choice for modern PCs having a vacant USB connector and running Windows (XP, 2000, 98SE or later). A suitable driver is already built into Windows and some other operating systems. (A USB scanner acts like a USB keyboard- it uses a USB HID driver)
