Direct Part Marking (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 has specific advantages and disadvantages in terms of durability, cost and ease of reading.


The PowerScan PM9530-DPM imager includes the latest optics and software from Datalogic to make the reading of codes marked with DPM technology 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.

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 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.
