PowerScan™ bar code readers are the ultimate industrial handheld devices, designed and constructed to withstand the toughest environmental conditions in demanding applications, offering lasting performance and outstanding reliability combined with exceptional reading performance and accuracy.

The PowerScan™ PBT9300 series is a Laser Auto Range (AR) scanner with extra-long reading range capabilities for reading linear codes. This laser scanner features standard Bluetooth® wireless technology combined with the outstanding reliability and reading performance found in all PowerScan products.


Based on Bluetooth 3.0 standard wireless technology, Class 1 Range (in open air); up to 100 m / 328 ft. Connectivity is implemented through the receiving base station, which communicates to the host through a choice of interfaces (Serial, USB or Keyboard Wedge) or by connecting the scanner directly to any commercial or embedded Bluetooth compliant device, or via Ethernet by using the BC9180-BT base/charger using Standard Ethernet and Industrial Ethernet protocols (Ethernet IP and Modbus).


The PowerScan PBT9300 scanner mounted on a forklift with a Vehicle Mount Terminal (VMT) provides an excellent solution for warehouse applications.

The PowerScan PBT9300 laser scanner is available in two different optics: Standard Range (SR) or Auto Range (AR) for reading distances up to 11.5 m / 37.0 ft on reflective codes.
