FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Datalogic Scanning Introduces QuickScan® Imager with Patented “Green Spot” Technology Eugene, Oregon, December 2, 2008 – Datalogic Scanning is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the new QuickScan® QD2100 Imager, with Datalogic’s unique, patented “Green Spot”, which is ideal for retail and document handling, courier and postal applications. This new imager provides great value for users with many features normally found only on high-performance readers. With excellent reading performance on hard-to-read, poorly printed and even damaged bar codes, the new QuickScan Imager is designed to read 1D codes and recently adopted GS1 DataBar™ linear codes. It’s small, lightweight, extremely comfortable, and ergonomically designed for daily use. QuickScan® - Building on a Heritage of Product Excellence “Customers can now select from their preferred scanning technology: laser or the new linear imager, which offers an even better performance and a greater depth-of-field. The new QuickScan® Imager not only shares the same enclosure, accessories and cables with the QuickScan® Laser scanner, but is priced identically and competitively for this economic market,” said Pietro Todescato, General Manager, Handheld Scanning. “This new imager features Datalogic’s patented ‘Green Spot’ which provides intuitive code positioning and good-read feedback in noisy environments. None of our competitors can offer a similar product feature.” Reduces Environmental Impact With a standard five-year factory warranty and no moving parts, the QuickScan Imager is not only durable, but constructed to last. To increase environmental sustainability, reduce total cost of ownership and keep scanners on the job, the QuickScan Imager was designed with a replaceable and cleanable scan window to maintain the device in ‘like new’ condition. Replacement window packs allow easy cleaning or swap-outs of dirty, scratched, or damaged scan windows.
