PowerScan® PM8300 Industrial Handheld Laser Bar Code Reader with Datalogic's STAR Cordless System

 The PowerScan PM8300 cordless laser scanners are Datalogic Scanning’s premium line of rugged industrial handheld data collection products for linear codes. The PowerScan PM8300 series includes different models able to satisfy all customers’ needs; the PM8300 is the basic cordless model; the PM8300-D intermediate model includes a display and 3-key keypad; and the ultimate PM8300-DK model features a display and a full 16-key keyboard. The PM8300-DK model significantly increases the sophistication of interaction with the host system and opens up new potential uses of the scanner, making it suitable for applications that would normally require a more expensive portable data terminal. The mobile phone-like keyboard allows for the manual entering of bar codes that are not readable and enables easy management of simple code-quantity applications like inventory, picking, receiving, etc.
