With the durability of the renowned industrial PowerScan family, the PowerScan imager is now being introduced into the retail sector with a new series of ‘Retail’ scanners. The PowerScan PD9500-RT imager is a corded scanner perfect for desk applications. The rugged mechanics of the PowerScan Retail series guarantees reliable long-term operation in retail activities. Repeated shocks at the POS checkout does not inhibit the scanner’s performance or reliability, protecting the retailer’s investment. The IP65 rating further guarantees protection from damages caused by exposure to moisture.


Digital watermarked bar codes include the same Global Trade Item Number(GTIN) data contained in the UPC/EAN symbologies, but repetitively distributes the GTIN data across the entire package without altering the packaging aesthetics.

The PowerScan Retail 9500 series is the first handheld series of scanners on the market capable of reading digital watermarks including Digimarc® Barcodes. This new application significantly reduces time at the checkout. Cashiers can scan items quicker without having to hunt for the bar code or lift bulky items from the trolley.
