PSC Magellan 8500 Omega Barcode Scanners

The PSC Magellan 8500 Omega has been renamed to the Datalogic Magellan 8500 Omega.

Smart Technology For Your Business

The Magellan 8500 is the highest performing scanner-scanner-scale available for large volume point-of-sale applications. It is the first scanner to use PSC'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 barcode 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 PSC'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.

PSC Magellan 8500 Omega Details

Magellan 8500 Omega Features

  • OmegaTek™ Productivity Technology
  • SurroundScan® 3D Scanning™ Technology
  • Enhanced All-Weighs™ Platter
  • FirstStrike® Advanced Decoding Software
  • Multiple interface solution supports all
    popular host interfaces
  • Flash memory for easy, low cost upgrades
  • Powered auxiliary RS-232 port for easy
    integration of a handheld scanner
  • Optional EAS functionality
  • Sunrise 2005 and GTIN compliant

The Magellan 8500 Omega high performance scanner and scanner/scale with the new OmegaTek Productivity Technology is specifically designed for high volume retail checkout applications.

What is the new OmegaTek™ Productivity Technology?
OmegaTek Productivity Technology is comprised of hardware and software innovations that significantly improve scanner performance by increasing the scanning speed and by improving the first pass read rates on hard-to-read barcodes. This yields industry leading scan speeds and first-pass-read-rates while:

  • Improving front end checkout productivity by reducing or eliminating re-scans or no-scans
  • Improving customer service by reducing the time a customer has to wait in the checkout line

The Magellan 8500 Omega also maximizes productivity by using SurroundScan® 3D Scanning™ technology. SurroundScan utilizes the Magellan 8500 Omega's breakthrough scan pattern to aggressively read all six sides of an item while enabling outstanding performance on truncated and higher density barcodes like RSS. SurroundScan virtually eliminates misreads and reduces ergonomic problems by allowing cashiers the freedom to scan items in their natural orientation.

The Magellan 8500 Omega features a redesigned All-Weighs platter for reducing loss from shrink stemming from mis-weighing large or over-sized produce. The All-Weighs platter design is more intuitive to use and allows produce to be leaned against the vertical window and platter, away from the counter, for the most accurate weighing.

The Magellan 8500 Omega is also equipped with PSC's patented FirstStrike advanced decoding software for reading damaged, wrinkled, and poorly printed labels. With FirstStrike, labels can be quickly stitched together by piecing together information captured by any one of the scan lines. Additionally, FirstStrike uses some of the most advanced character correlation algorithms available to reconstruct damaged or missing barcode data. All of this is done in a split second to speed throughput on poor quality labels and most importantly, improves first pass read rates on even tough items like egg cartons.

The Magellan 8500 Omega was designed to make it as flexible as possible. Several features make the Magellan 8500 Omega extremely versatile including its multi-interface solution. The multi-interface supports RS232 (single or dual cable), IBM46XX, and IBM USB host interfaces right out the box and provides an easy migration path for customer who may need to change interfaces at some point. Another versatile feature is the scanner's flash memory, which allows for easy software upgrades. New decoding capabilities, software based features, or new symbologies can all be updated in flash through the scanners auxiliary or host port ensuring convenient migration and future industry compatibility.

The Magellan 8500 Omega can also provide a distinct competitive advantage when its Productivity Index Reporting™ software and Cashier Training™ software features are implemented. Both tools can provide valuable information for improving productivity at the checkout. The Magellan 8500 Omega also provides an auxiliary port for handhelds, optional EAS capability, host diagnostic reporting, and of course, the legendary reliability and service­ability that comes with the Magellan name.

With the Magellan 8500 Omega the legacy continues by combining the newest technologies and latest innovations with the knowledge and experience of having built over a million fixed point-of-sale scanners, which have been installed around the globe. The result is a new standard in retail point-of-sale performance, reliability, versatility, and value. The result is the Magellan 8500 Omega and nothing beats a Magellan.
