With the Duet Dual Action Scanner retailers can now scan anything at the point-of-sale: small items large bulky items even items that aren't individually bar coded. Duet's unique Targeted Handheld capability eliminates the need to manually key items without bar codes such as unpackaged or specialty products. Simply direct the Scanner's pointer beam at a bar coded PLU list target the correct item press the trigger button and the correct data is captured. By isolating a single bar code this capability avoids reading the wrong bar code in a cluster of items. Using an advanced visible laser diode scanning system the Duet scanner offers a large 9 (22.9 cm) depth-of-field and wide scan area for higher performance hands-free scanning. With enhanced decoding capabilities the Scanner is fast with high first-pass read rates on a variety of bar codes including labels that are long highly truncated partially obscured and difficult to read. It also includes the patented PSC Edge software which automatically reconstructs torn or disfigured labels. And it reads labels with elements as small as 5 mils (0.127 mm). This versatile scanner autodiscriminates UPC or EAN plus 5 industrial symbologies and supports P2 P5 and C128 add-ons. With two scan windows the scanner can easily adapt to either fixed or handheld scanning applications: the omnidirectional pattern for general fixed retail scanning or the single scanline when held in the hand for reading large bulky items or bar coded PLU lists.
