Powerscan PM8300 Industrial Barcode Scanner

The DataLogic Powerscan PM8300 has reached end of life. It has been replaced by the DataLogic PowerScan PD9330.

The Datalogic Powerscan PM8300 cordless barcode scanner features a heavy duty design and optional LCD display, giving you an excellent solution for industrial and rough retail barcode scanning. The optional display shows what has just been scanned, eliminating the hassle of walking back to the PC to verify formatting, and helps keep track of barcodes when in data collection mode.

Datalogic has built the PM8300 to survive the harshest of conditions with a ruggedized yellow body able to withstand 50 drops from 2 meters to concrete. The body also protects the scanner from temperatures as low as -4° F and completely seals it from dust and low pressure jets of water, meaning the Datalogic Powerscan M8300 will survive nearly any industrial environment.

  • Can scan from up to 3.3' away for standard models and 33' for auto-ranging models
  • Can scan barcodes as small as 3 mil for standard models and 7.5 mil for auto-ranging models
  • Point-to-point and multi-point transmissions extend radio range
  • IP65/IP64 seal to protect from dust and water
