The PowerScan™ PM9000 series includes different models able to satisfy all customers’ needs; the PM9501-AR is the 1D/2D Auto Range model with extra-long range capabilities. The PM9501-DAR is the intermediate model and includes a display and 4-key keypad. The ultimate PM9501-DKAR model features a display with a full 16-key keyboard. The PM9501-DKAR model significantly increases the sophistication of interaction with the host system and opens up new potential uses of the scanner, making it suitable for applications that would normally require a more expensive portable data terminal. The BC9180 base includes one model with two different Ethernet connections: Standard Ethernet and Industrial Ethernet protocols such as Ethernet IP and Modbus.


Narrow band radio communications with Datalogic’s STAR Cordless System™ 2.0 provides the key to increased productivity and flexibility in the workplace. It offers scalable solutions from simple point-to-point applications to networking capabilities combined with seamless roaming for complex installations.


The PM9501-AR readers feature Datalogic’s exclusive 3 Green Lights (3GL™) for superior good-read feedback. The patented ‘Green Spot’ directly on the code and dual Good Read LEDs on the top and back of the cap add increased visibility at any angle. The PowerScan PM9501 Auto Range can read 1D/2D barcodes with an extended reading range. Its powerful autofocus system allows the scanner to read from a short distance of 15 cm / 6 in to a distance of more than 20 m / 65 ft because of a fast focus adjustment, allowing the operator to easily read a close up barcode and then focus at the top of a warehouse rack.
