Datalogic presents the new POWERSCAN DPM Imagers, designed specifically for applications based on codes printed with Direct Part Marking (DPM) technology

Bologna, May 22, 2013 – Datalogic welcomes new DPM imagers to its PowerScan™ family of industrial scanners. Designed specifically for applications based on codes printed with Direct Part Marking (DPM) technology, PowerScan DPM imagers deliver the high performance, reliability and ruggedness that distinguishes Datalogic’s industrial line of scanners.

First adopted by the automotive sector, the use of Direct Part Marking technology has expanded quickly to several markets including aerospace, defense, electronics and computers, healthcare, raw materials, jewelry and many others. Datalogic responds to this trend with its new line of PowerScan DPM imagers. These imagers read codes marked with DPM technology on various surfaces and materials including plastic, metal, wood, rubber, leather, glass, etc. Thanks to Datalogic’s innovative optical system, hardware architecture, mechanical design and decoding software, even inexperienced users can read these types of codes easily and intuitively.

In order to allow customers to choose the best price/performance combination for specific needs, Datalogic created two different models of the PowerScan DPM imager. “Datalogic always makes an extra effort to create the right product at the right price to assure that the user receives the best value for the investment made. In the case of the PowerScan DPM imager, the user can select from a standard or highly specialized model depending on the particular requirements of the workplace,” indicated Giulio Berzuini, General Manager & VP, Hand-Held Scanners, Datalogic ADC.

The PowerScan PD9530-DPM model offers a soft, white illumination system that reduces flashes and is gentle on the eyes. Its special decoding software guarantees excellent reading performance on numerous types of bar codes marked with DPM technology. In addition, a loud beeper and Datalogic's exclusive 3 Green Lights (3GL™) technology offer superior good-read feedback in noisy environments.

The Multi-Axis lighting technology incorporated in the PowerScan PD8590-DPM imager allow this model to read any type of code marked with DPM technology on any surface. Different illumination modes are cycled automatically by the software to find optimal reading conditions and the illumination types and sequences can be customized to optimize scanner snappiness.  A vibrating motor, coupled with a standard green LED, indicates good reads in especially noisy workplaces.
