Datalogic Scanning Announces the Magellan 1100i Omni-Directional Imaging Bar Code Scanner

Introducing Illumix, a new intelligent illumination technology

Datalogic Scanning, the global leader in point-of-sale bar code scanning, is pleased to announce the latest enhancement to the renowned Magellan family of high performance scanners, the Magellan 1100i bar code reader. This innovative imager demonstrates each of the three primary Magellan brand attributes – high performance, exceptional reliability, and distinct value. The Magellan 1100i imager represents the second generation offering of the world’s first imaging based presentation scanner, the highly successful Magellan™ 1000i imager.

The Magellan 1100i reader is designed with a very compact form factor, the latest solid state electronics and innovative imaging technology that allow it to scan the most challenging bar codes in traditionally harsh retail checkout environments. A major result of this advanced technology is the aggressive data collection of 1D and 2D bar codes and the ability to be used as either a presentation or sweep mode reader. This ability to read almost any bar code and its small footprint, make it a natural fit for scanning applications found in convenience, specialty and drug stores.

Emerging trends in Retail Mobile Commerce require businesses to accept e-coupons, admission tickets and boarding passes being presented on the displays of cell phones or PDA’s. The Magellan 1100i imager introduces Datalogic’s new Illumix™ intelligent illumination technology which enables the ability to read bar codes from backlit displays found in mobile phones, PDA’s, PDT’s etc. This feature not only supports fast paced consumer lifestyles, but also “green” initiatives to go paperless.

For the first time in a Magellan line product, Datalogic’s patented ‘Green Spot’ technology is available when ordering this reader. In small, noisy workspaces it can prove to be difficult to hear the “beep” of a scan. The ‘Green Spot’ technology provides additional visual good read feedback to the user right on the item being read.

“Datalogic Scanning continues to offer value to our customers in products that exceed their data capture needs for today, while anticipating the demands of the marketplace in the future,” states Matt Schler, General Manager, Fixed Retail for Datalogic Scanning. “We are happy to be able to add this new innovative imager to our world leading Magellan line of high performance retail scanners.”
