ZD410 & ZD411 Comparison - What's Changed? What's Stayed the Same?
By: Colton Redtfeldt - 8/4/2022

By: Colton Redtfeldt - 5/10/2022

Are you looking for that extra bit of communication range in your barcode scanner? Are you looking for something you can program with special function commands? The new Datalogic PM9600 might be the scanner for you! Unlike most wireless barcode scanners on the market today, the PM9600 uses a radio frequency instead of Bluetooth to pair with it's communication cradle. Because it’s using radio, you’re going to be able to get pretty far away from the cradle without losing connection.
