The PowerScan 7000 is one of the lowest-priced full performance industrial handheld scanners on the market. It was designed to be both rugged and durable to fit demanding applications such as the manufacturing shop floor, warehousing, package handling and tracking and more. The strong overmold gives the PowerScan 7000 an extra degree of shock protection that allows the scanner to withstand 50 drops of 6.5 feet to concrete. It can operate in extreme temperatures and seals out dust and water. Due to an innovative Datalogic optical design, the PowerScan 7000 has a depth of field that is unsurpassed by other scanners. An integrated laser aiming beam is also available for applications that need more precise or brighter aiming cues. The advanced decoding algorithms allow read rates up to 500 scans per second-the fastest industrial scanner available. Additionally, the PowerScan 7000 features a multiple interface architecture that allows connection to the majority of the host terminals on the market, including RS-232, USB, Wand Emulation and IBM POS interfaces.
