Datalogic, a global leader in Automatic Data Capture and Industrial Automation markets and world-class producer of bar code readers, mobile computers, sensors, vision systems and laser marking equipment, will feature next generation solutions in automated bar code reading and inspection, including their new P-Series smart camera, Matrix 210 Liquid Lens 2D imager, Falcon X3+ mobile computer and the PowerScan PM9500-DK handheld imager at PACK EXPO International booth N-6104 located in Chicago's McCormick Center from November 2nd - 5th.

Datalogic will display a full range of mobile computers from the popular pocket-sized Memor X3 mobile computer featuring aggressive 1D and 2D scan capabilities, to the newly released ruggedized Falcon X3+ mobile computer. The Falcon X3+ mobile computer introduces many new and exciting capabilities including the ability to read 2D barcodes at extreme distances with the new XLR 2D scanner, along with significantly higher wireless communications throughput with an 802.11n dual band WiFi radio.

Datalogic' s renowned line of industrial grade PowerScan handheld scanners, with both 1D and 2D reading abilities, offer rugged handheld scanning solutions for industrial settings. The focal point of this family is the newly released high-speed wireless PowerScan PM9500-DK 2D omnidirectional scanner. Its high performance liquid lens increases depth-of-field for reading wide and high density codes. This imager is available with a display and a 16-key keypad for manual entry of data of simple code-quantity applications such as picking and inventory counts. The PM9500-DK imager offers great mobility with the Datalogic STAR2.0 Cordless System technology, a narrow band radio offering a longer range and a more robust alternative to Bluetooth wireless technology when needed.

For the first time ever, visitors will see the versatile, ultra-compact P-Series smart camera perform optical character recognition on pharmaceutical packaging for expiration date/lot code inspection. The interactive demo provides a first-hand look at how a modern day modular approach to machine vision can offer 70 field-adaptable cameras for various industry applications.

Booth N-6104 will also showcase the patent pending technology behind Datalogic's Pattern Sorting Tool a revolutionary solution which inspects packaging graphics during high speed production processes. Ultrafast processing times, plus the tool's ability to identify thousands of unique graphics, result in a solution that is virtually limitless for food & beverage and pharmaceutical applications.

Additionally, Datalogic's Matrix 210™ Liquid Lens 2D imager will be showcased reading bar codes on pharmaceutical and food & beverage packaging. The award-winning, liquid lens technology offers more flexibility, with intuitive, AutoSetup wizards, as well as increased performance with multiple illumination settings on damaged, high resolution, direct part mark codes.
