PowerScan® PD8500 2D Industrial Corded Handheld Area Imager Bar Code Reader


The PowerScan 8000 product series is Datalogic Scanning’s premium line of rugged industrial handheld data collection products. The PowerScan PD8500 corded reader offers omnidirectional reading of 1D and 2D codes as well as the capability of multiple code reading in a single read. Its high resolution Mega-Pixel imaging sensor is capable of outstanding performance in industrial applications. It is offered with three optic models: Standard Range and High Density models are for typical bar code reading conditions (for medium and high resolution code respectively) and the Wide Angle model offers a wider field of view allowing the capture of larger and longer codes as well as a full A4 image capture (29.0 x 21.0 cm / 11.42 x 8.27 in).
