A Tough Tool For Your Toughest Jobs
PowerScan®: Setting a New Standard
The PowerScan family of handheld laser bar code scanners has been specifically designed "from the ground up" to meet the demands of industrial users. In this tough environment, the right tool makes all the difference. With a PSC PowerScan scanner on the job, you'll have one of the toughest, most reliable tools around.
You can rely on the PowerScan scanner for fast, accurate bar code reading, from up close to over 60" / 152 cm away. Even labels previously thought to be unreadable can now be read using PSC's superior decoding software, QuadraLogic™ II. The scanner will autodiscriminate all standard bar code symbologies and automatically adjusts to read a wide range of code densities.
Dependable In The Harshest Conditions
Even in the most harsh working environments, you can depend on the PowerScan scanner to keep on working. Designed to meet the most stringent drop specification in the industry, the scanner will withstand multiple 6.5' / 2 m drops to concrete. The PowerScan scanner has a sealing rating of IP54 which means it can withstand intermittant rain showers and keep on working. PowerScan also operates over a wide temperature range from -22° F / -30° C to over 122° F / 50° C.
Built To Stand Up To Abuse
Handheld scanners often are dropped and abused, so this scanner has been designed with high impact-resistant material and incorporates protective rubber cushioning at every point of impact. The frictionless scan mechanism and all internal optical components are shock mounted to maintain precise alignment under high shock loads. The scan window is made of shatter-proof material and is diamond coated to resist scratching. Even the replaceable interface cable is protected with an integrated metal strain relief.
Innovative Host Connectivity
The PowerScan scanner has a broad range of communication options using unique multi-interface modules, which allow for connection to most host computer systems. Our AutoSelect™ feature allows you to quickly move between different hosts and applications by simply changing cables. In addition PowerScan's low current draw, combined with its low power mode, make it ideal for use with battery operated terminals.
