Direct Part Marking Technology
The Datalogic PowerScan 9531-DPM Evo handheld area imager scanner is engineered to read codes marked with DPM (Direct Part Marking). This PowerScan 9531-DPM rugged scanner has the latest optics and software from Datalogic that makes scanning intuitive and easy. Capable of reading standard and high density barcodes, the 9531-DPM emites a soft pulse while illumination light results in reduced flashes, making this scanner very gentle to the eyes. Omnidirectional reading and image capture in an ergonomic shape make the 9531-DPM suitable for all day usage. The 9531-DPM is ideal for applications on the manufacturing shop floor such as work in progress, sub-assembly, component tracking, quality control, line inventory control, and more.
Datalogic PD9531-DPMK1 Overview

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 have specific advantages and disadvantages in terms of durability, cost and ease of reading.

The PowerScan™ 9500-DPM Evo series of scanners are rugged handheld area imagers specifically addressed and capable of reading codes marked with DPM.


The PowerScan DPM series include the latest optics and software from Datalogic to make the reading of codes with DPM easy and intuitive. The typical reading distance is from contact to 4-5 cm / 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 on printed labels. High density optics allow the capture of very small, high-resolution codes in a range from near contact up to 15.0 cm / 5.9 in. The intuitive aiming system provides the highest first-pass reading rates. A soft pulsed white illumination light results in reduced flashes and is very gentle to the eyes.


The PM9500 DPM Evo series offers the display option with 4 configurable keys. This increases interaction between the host and the user allowing a two-way exchange of information for more reliable and effective communications.

The BC9180 is provided with Standard MultiInterface: USB-KBD, USB-COM, USB-OEM, RS-232 and Ethernet connectivity: Telnet, Web Server, Data Socket, Ethernet/IP.


Datalogic's Motionix™ motion-sensing technology detects the natural actions of the operator to automatically switch the scanner into the desired scanning mode.
