The PowerScan 9530 is a cordless rugged handheld area imager specifically addressed and capable of reading codes marked with DPM. Direct Part Marking (DPM) is a process that allows users to imprint a bar code directly on an item instead of printing the code on a paper label. Different technologies are available to directly mark objects: laser / chemical etching, dot peening and ink jet printing. Each of these methods has specific advantages and disadvantages in terms of durability, cost and ease of reading. The PowerScan PBT9500 Evo is equipped with a standard Bluetooth 2.0 radio that can be configured via software as a Class 1 radio. The PowerScan PBT9530-DPM Evo imager includes the latest optics and software from Datalogic to make the reading of codes marked with DPM technology easy and intuitive. The typical reading distance is from contact to 1.5-1.9 in, depending on the DPM technology used, the code resolution, and the material and surface type. The scanner is also capable of reading standard bar codes printed on labels. It is based on a high density optic which allows the capture of very small, high-resolution codes in a range from near contact up to 5.9 in.
The Datalogic PD9530-HPEK2 is also known as DAT -PD9530HPEK2 or PD9530HPEK2
