An intuitive and effortless scanning experience is the target of the PowerScan™ 9500 family. It combines omni-directional 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 PM9500 area imager includes Datalogic’s latest decoding software that guarantees snappy reading in any type of environment. Aim, trigger, decode: it is that simple!

User comfort is guaranteed because of the scanner ergonomics, consisting of the handle shape, a well-balanced weight and an intuitive aiming system, allowing the highest first-pass reading rate while reducing unnatural wrist movement or rotation which can tire any user during long shifts. Additionally, the PowerScan 9500 area imager uses a soft-pulsed white illumination light resulting in reduced flashes, which is very gentle on the eyes and less troublesome to the operator during scan-intensive applications.

The PowerScan PM9500 area imager is available in 3 different models to meet the specific needs of each customer. The PM9530 model is geared towards customers needing high reading performance and speed on standard resolution codes.


The PM9530-HP (High Performance) model is more versatile because of the advanced optics that combine high resolution bar code reading capability (up to 2.5 mils for linear codes) and wide angle image capture (A4 image size @ 25.0 cm / 0.8 ft), while maintaining an exceptional depth-of-field. While the final model is a high performance model with a display and 4 configurable keys to increase the interactivity between the host and the user allowing a two-way exchange of information for more reliable and effective communications.

The Datalogic STAR Cordless System™  for narrow-band radio communications was developed specifically to maximize efficiency and reliability for handheld  scanner data collection applications. 
The PowerScan PM9500 models are equipped with a new generation of the STAR-System™ that further improves the already outstanding features of versatility, ease of use and radio range. The radio range allows for 100 m / 328 ft low speed  & 50 m / 164 ft high speed.
Long lasting battery life guarantees more than one shift of intensive scanning.
