DataLogic Magellan 8500

Magellan 8500 Presentation Barcode Scanners

The DataLogic Magellan 8500 has reached end of life.

The Datalogic Magellan® 8500 is the highest performing scanner/scanner-scale available for large volume point-of-sale applications. It is the first scanner to use Datalogic's new, ground breaking SurroundScan™ technology to aggressively scan all 6 sides of an item. Competitive dual-plane scanners can only read 4 or 5 sides at once but the Magellan® 8500 can simultaneously read the bottom, top, and all four sides of store items. With SurroundScan, a bar code in virtually any orientation can be read with the first pass. It has never been easier, faster, or more ergonomic to scan at the POS!

The Magellan® 8500 also incorporates FirstStrike™, Datalogic's most advanced decoding software. It enables the reading of torn, poorly printed, and disfigured labels of all types. FirstStrike also supports all of the most popular symbologies, including Reduced Space Symbology (RSS) and is able to autodiscriminate all supported symbologies for added flexibility.
