(DPM) is a process that allows users to imprint a bar code directly on an item instead of printing the code on a paper label. Different technologies are available to directly mark objects: laser / chemical etching, dot peening and ink jet printing. Each of these methods have specific advantages and disadvantages in terms of durability, cost and ease of reading. The PowerScan™ PD9530-DPM reader is a rugged handheld area imager specifically addressed and capable of reading codes marked with DPM.
Reading capabilities The PowerScan PD9530-DPM imager includes the latest optics and software from Datalogic to make the reading of codes with DPM easy and intuitive. The typical reading distance is from contact to 4-5 cm / 1.5-1.9 in, depending on the DPM technology used, the code resolution, and the material and surface type. The scanner is also capable of reading standard bar codes printed on labels. It is based on a high density optic which allows the capture of very small, high-resolution codes in a range from near contact up to 15.0 cm / 5.9 in.
Iillumination The intuitive aiming system allows the highest first-pass reading rate. Additionally, the PowerScan 9530-DPM area imager uses a soft-pulsed white illumination light resulting in reduced flashes, which is very gentle on users’ eyes.
Motionix™ motion-sensing technology Datalogic’s Motionix™ motion-sensing technology detects the natural actions of the operator to automatically switch the scanner into the desired scanning mode.
An intuitive and effortless scanning experience is the target of the PowerScanTM 9500 family. It combines omnidirectional reading capabilities, which is 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. In addition, the PowerScan PD9500 area imager includes Datalogic's latest decoding software that guarantees snappy reading in any type of environment. Aim, trigger, decode: it is that simple!
