The Magellan 1000i is designed for small-counter retail environments incorporates several new design wins for the user. Our design objectives were simple: improve checkout productivity while protecting the customer's investment by adding capabilities that would extend the typical life of the scanner. We developed a new bar code scanner that is faster at capturing of hard-to-read labels, has outstanding ergonomics especially when handheld use is required, and has an excellent price to value ratio. The Magellan 1000i will also be very effective at protecting the user's investment by potentially extending the useful life of the scanner. Datalogic's new imaging technology has no moving parts providing excellent reliability and durability. This new technology also has a significant software component that will make adding new features and enhancements much easier. Features such as RFID coupling and new code symbologies can be enabled via software changes. And, like the entire Magellan family, the Magellan 1000i has multi-interface support built into each scanner that allows a new interface with a simple program parameter change and a cable switch.
