The Magellan 1000i is an Omni-Directional Imaging Scanner suited for hands-free or hand-held use in "small-counter" retail environments. Unlike similar laser scanners, this new imaging technology has no moving parts making the Magellan 1000i more durable and reliable. This same technology allows hard-to-read or damaged labels to be read more quickly. The Magellan 1000i also has a significant software component that will make adding features like RFID coupling, new barcode symbologies and other enhancements easier in the future. Like all PSC Magellan scanners, the Magellan 1000i has multi-interface support built into each scanner that allows a new interface to be used with a simple program parameter change and a cable switch.
