Direct Part Marking (DPM) is a process for imprinting a bar code directly on an item or surface 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.
Datalogic's PowerScanTM PD8590-DPM imager is an ultra-high performance rugged handheld reader specifically designed for and capable of reading codes marked with DPM.
With a perfect combination of embedded multiple lighting systems and aggressive decoding algorithms, the PD8590-DPM imager is able to read any challenging code marked with DPM.
The embedded Multi-Axis Lighting technology creates an even illumination on all surfaces (flat, shiny, curved or codes marked with dot peening) and ensures reliable reading.
The PowerScan PD8590-DPM imager is equipped with a processor capable of decoding multiple symbologies quickly, allowing the operator to function at maximum productivity. The PD8590-DPM imager is also very easy to use. The imager integrates an aiming system for simple point-and-click targeting with multiple systems (audible, visual and vibration) to provide real-time feedback indicating that a good read has occurred.
Easy connectivity and portability are ensured with a direct, single USB power connection. No additional power connection is required.
