Datalogic DS8100A Fixed Mount Laser Barcode Scanner

Datalogic DS8100A Fixed Mount Laser Barcode Scanner

The Datalogic DS8100A represents the evolution of a winning concept which started in 1998: the use of state-of-the-art technology to design the best performing fixed position scanner on the market. DS8100A is based on an innovative 3-diode structure that offers an unbeatable real-time depth of field.



  • Reading performance benchmark
  • ACR4™ code reconstruction algorithm
  • ASTRA™ technology for the electronic focusing system
  • DIGITECH™ signal processing technology
  • PACKTRACK™ to minimize the gap between objects and increase system productivity
  • GENIUS™ multilanguage SW for easy scanner configuration/setup
  • Display and keyboard
  • Built-in Ethernet TCP/IP connectivity
  • Fully compatible with DX8200A, 6000 series (DS6300, DS6400) and SC6000 industrial controller
  • Communication interfaces include RS232/RS485 up to 115.2 kbps



Connectivity has been improved with the introduction of built-in Ethernet connectivity with implemented TCP-IP, Ethernet/IP and modbus TCP protocols. A practical display with keyboard increases DS8100A ease of use by offering a simple and complete human machine interface without PC. The SW platform of the new DS8100A, based on GEnius configuration program, permits 100% control of scanner functionality via SW. Moreover, DIGITECH™ technology enables excellent reading performance along the entire depth of field

The Datalogic Matrix 300™ is the most cost effective solution for bar code imagers, providing onboard PROFINET-IO and eliminating external communication boxes or converters. The Matrix 300™ interfaces directly with a PROFINET enabled PLC, reducing the complexity and cost of the solution. The M12, 4 pole connection sets a standard that allows for easy integration into existing systems.
