The PowerScan 9500-DPM Evo series represents the handheld area imaging family with enhanced reading performance on bar codes printed with Direct Part Marking (DPM) technology. Direct Part Marking is a process that allows users to mark a bar code directly on an item instead of printing the bar code on a paper label. Different technologies are available: laser or chemical etching, dot peening and ink jet printing.
The DPM family is based on the same optical systems used in the previous PowerScan 9500–DPM series and now relies on enhanced Datalogic DPM decoding software and Electronics for improved results when scanning critical bar codes printed with DPM technology.
The BC9180 base/charger for the 2 mobile models also includes (in one model) two different Ethernet connections: Standard Ethernet and Industrial Ethernet protocols such as Ethernet IP and Modbus.
