An intuitive and effortless scanning experience is the target of the PowerScan™ 9501 series. They combine omnidirectional reading capabilities with outstanding optical characteristics. The result is a scanner that is able to read any kind of bar code, regardless of the orientation, from contact to over 1.0 m / 3.3 ft, depending on the bar code resolution. In addition, Datalogic’s latest decoding software guarantees snappy reading in any type of environment.


The Datalogic STAR Cordless System™ for narrow-band radio communications was developed specifically to maximize efficiency and reliability for handheld scanner data collection applications. The PowerScan PM9501 models are equipped with a new generation of the STAR-System that further improves the already outstanding features of versatility, ease of use and radio range.

The PM9501 series offers two display options: 4 configurable keys and a full 16-key keyboard. This increases interaction between the host and the user allowing a two-way exchange of information for more reliable and effective communications.
The BC9180 base/charger also includes in one model two different Ethernet connections: Standard Ethernet and Industrial Ethernet protocols such as Ethernet IP and Modbus.


Handle shape, well-balanced weight and an intuitive aiming system allows high first-pass reading rates while reducing unnatural wrist
movements for improved ergonomics and user comfort.

The PowerScan 9501 area imagers use a soft-pulsed white
illumination light that is very gentle on the eyes and less troublesome to the operator during scan-intensive applications.
