Datalogic Magellan 1500i delivers high-performance scanning for retailers

Datalogic’s Magellan 1500i merges imaging excellence with innovative design in a high-performance presentation scanner ideal for retailers. 

Uniquely user-friendly and powerful, the Magellan 1500i is suitable for all types of retail store, including pharmacies, customer-service counters, kiosks, pop-up stores – and even self-checkouts.

A compact footprint and discrete cable routing ensure the scanner takes up as little space on counters as possible, maximising the area left for serving customers. 

Yet, despite it compact size, the Magellan 1500i has a large reading area and a fast sweep. It can read at distances of up to 25 cm and with 1D-sweep speeds of up to 1.5 m/s. This makes scanning 1D, 2D and Digimarc barcodes from printed labels, packaging or mobile phones easy and intuitive. 

Datalogic technology built in includes soft-red adaptive illumination, minimising light when it is not needed and adjusting the depth of field to suit the operating environment. And the scanner comes with multiple mounting options, including magnetic, allowing it to be used by both cashier and customer. 

Powerful decoding algorithms provide unmatched performance on a variety of 1D and 2D labels, including hard-to-read, truncated and damaged codes.

The Magellan 1500i can be used in hands-free stand mode or hand-held mode. When the scanner is placed on a counter, items can be swept past or presented to the scanner. But if an item to be scanned is too large to lift, the Magellan 1500i can also be used as a hand-held scanner. 

When picked up from the counter, Datalogic’s Motionix motion-sensing technology detects the movement and activates an LED aimer. Users simply place the aimer on the target bar code, depress the trigger and Datalogic’s patented ‘Green Spot’ technology provides good-read confirmation. When the scanner is returned to the counter, the scanner automatically returns to stand mode.

Remote management is supported for OPOS, JavaPOS, Toshiba Remote Management with IBM Systems Director® and Wavelink® Avalanche®. Additional capabilities are available with the value-added features included in every Magellan scanner.
