Datalogic has unveiled its most recent addition to the Magellan family of barcode readers utilising the company's latest digital imaging technology, the Magellan 800i scanner. As the newest addition to the Magellan brand of fixed retail scanners, the Magellan 800i scanner is claimed to deliver unprecedented value in a versatile design to help retailers around the world - large and small - harness the latest trends in data collection while improving productivity and reliability. The Magellan 800i scanner is available now through Datalogic's global network of distribution partners.
"The Magellan 800i scanner extends the Magellan brand of high performance data collection devices to an even broader audience of customers around the world," said Matt Schler, General Manager of the Fixed Retail Business Unit. "The Magellan 800i scanner makes it easier than ever for our customers to take advantage of the high performance and high reliability associated with solid state imaging based products while enabling them to take full advantage of emerging applications requiring reading from mobile phones or decoding 2D barcodes."
In addition the Magellan 800i scanner offers image capture, illumix intelligent illumination for automatically adjusting to different ambient light levels, and has a built-in Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) antenna for linked tag deactivation for improving shrink caused by "sweet hearting". The Magellan 800i scanner has a small enclosure to maximise valuable counter selling space and an aggressive looking "window forward" design with a large scanning window affixed to an adjustable tilting stand for easy scan volume optimization.
Whether used in convenience stores, pharmacies, specialty stores, cinemas or indoor/outdoor events, the Magellan 800i scanner is the answer for both today's and tomorrow's complex data collection needs. It will be on display in Datalogic's booth, 6624, at NACS 2011 in Chicago, October 1 4.
