Magellan 9500 Omega Features
The Magellan 9500 Omega high performance scanner and scanner/scale with the new OmegaTek Productivity Technology is specifically designed for high volume retail checkout applications.
What is the new OmegaTek™ Productivity Technology?
The Magellan 9500 Omega was designed in cooperation with Sensormatic to integrate the latest technology in Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) tag deactivation. The ScanMax Pro IS antenna is cleverly integrated below the scale platter. This provides for one step scanning and deactivation to minimize the occurrence of Failure to Deactivate (FTD) events originating at the POS. The Magellan 9500 Omega's front mounted controls and indicators inform the cashier of the status of the entire scanning and deactivation process. Retailers no longer have to accept a high level of FTD's caused by adding on EAS equipment far downstream from the scanning process.
The Magellan 9500 Omega also maximizes productivity by using SurroundScan® 3D Scanning™ technology. SurroundScan utilizes the Magellan 9500 Omega's breakthrough scan pattern to aggressively read all six sides of an item while enabling outstanding performance on truncated and higher density bar codes like RSS. SurroundScan virtually eliminates misreads and reduces ergonomic problems by allowing cashiers the freedom to scan items in their natural orientation.
The Magellan 9500 Omega features a redesigned All-Weighs platter for reducing loss from shrink stemming from mis-weighing large or over-sized produce. The All-Weighs platter design is more intuitive to use and allows produce to be leaned against the vertical window and platter, away from the counter, for the most accurate weighing.
The Magellan 9500 Omega is also equipped with PSC's patented FirstStrike advanced decoding software for reading damaged, wrinkled, and poorly printed labels. With FirstStrike, labels can be quickly stitched together by piecing together information captured by any one of the scan lines. Additionally, FirstStrike uses some of the most advanced character correlation algorithms available to reconstruct damaged or missing bar code data. All of this is done in a split second to speed throughput on poor quality labels and most importantly, improves first pass read rates on even tough items like egg cartons.
The Magellan 9500 Omega was designed to make it as flexible as possible. Several features make the Magellan 9500 Omega extremely versatile including its multi-interface solution. The multi-interface supports RS232 (single or dual cable), IBM46XX, and IBM USB host interfaces right out the box and provides an easy migration path for customer who may need to change interfaces at some point. Another versatile feature is the scanner's flash memory, which allows for easy software upgrades. New decoding capabilities, software based features, or new symbologies can all be updated in flash through the scanners auxiliary or host port ensuring convenient migration and future industry compatibility.
The Magellan 9500 Omega can also provide a distinct competitive advantage when its Productivity Index Reporting™ software and Cashier Training™ software features are implemented. Both tools can provide valuable information for improving productivity at the checkout. The Magellan 9500 Omega also provides an auxiliary port for handhelds, optional EAS capability, host diagnostic reporting, and of course, the legendary reliability and serviceability that comes with the Magellan name.
With the Magellan 9500 Omega the legacy continues by combining the newest technologies and latest innovations with the knowledge and experience of having built over a million fixed point-of-sale scanners, which have been installed around the globe. The result is a new standard in retail point-of-sale performance, reliability, versatility, and value. The result is the Magellan 9500 Omega and nothing beats a Magellan.
