The Datalogic proprietary STAR Radio remains the preferred option for cordless systems, both in terms of superior value and in terms of product availability. 

Overview of The Main Features:


New ultra-robust design, protected from immersion in water. The investment is protected by wireless charging, which reduces the TCO by 15%. Reduced by 50% the annual maintenance fee/scanner. This durable scanner that is perfect for intense scanning operations. With a 10 million hits trigger, it guarantees a full life cycle resistance of the most stressed part, making it a great choice for businesses that rely on scanners for their daily operations.


The embedded fieldbus ensures simple setup and eliminates the requirement for third-party devices, reducing any potential danger of system weaknesses. Through the use of a single, inexpensive connection, fieldbus communication systems enable users to connect and keep track of a variety of devices, including sensors, programmable controllers, electronic drives, scanners, computers, etc.

The PowerScan 9600 Series has a modular cradle that can be enhanced to support additional communication standards. The interface plug-in can be used as an accessory with corded scanners. Having a device natively supporting the industrial fieldbus guarantees the easiest set-up and a reliable communication.

The modular architecture enables for interface extension for both wired and wireless versions, as well as asset optimization.

The PowerScan 9600 Series is a versatile and future-proof scanning solution that can be adapted to changing communication needs. By simply swapping out the interface plug-in, the cradle can be updated to support new interfaces such as Ethernet. This allows you to maintain your initial investment and avoid having to purchase new cradles. The PowerScan 9600 Series is perfect for businesses that need a reliable and adaptable scanning solution.


This system offers quadrupled radio range and doesn’t require an extra antenna, making it ideal for a wide variety of applications. When compared to Bluetooth, Datalogic’s STAR Cordless Systems can connect up to 16 scanners to a single cradle. Plus, with the new high contrast display, you’ll have no trouble seeing what you’re scanning.

And for added convenience, the PowerScan 9600 Series is also available with a double keypad. The double keypad option gives the operator simple input actions they can use for data scrolling during inventory or manual input for code quantity or code position.

Users can also obtain quick feedback on the scanned item via bidirectional radio transmission and display, minimizing the possibility of errors.

New ultra-robust design and top-class sealing rate. The new PowerScan 9600 Series is designed to resist more than 50 drops at 2.5 m / 8.2 ft and is sealed to IP67 and IP65. Only device in its category with a trigger tested to resist 10 million hits.

Reliable IT equipment improves a business’s daily operations and productivity and guarantees reliable long-term operations while protecting the end users’ investment.

Center of gravity design.

The new scanner has a well-balanced weight reducing
fatigue to the operator’s wrist.
The non-slip handle allows a secure grip and no interruptions for accidental slipping.

Unrivaled reading performances on 1D/2D, Postal Codes, OCR, Dotcodes, and Digimarc.

20% faster scanning guarantees higher worker productivity.

Modular cradle design also allows interface extension to corded devices.

The new modular concept of the cradle split the base station functionality in battery charging and communication. The communication module can be used as an accessory for cradle and also for the wired scanner, allowing extension of communication interfaces like Ethernet and industrial Ethernet. The base station without the interface plug-in and thecommunication modules are available separately to allow partners and distributors stock optimization.

Fieldbus natively supported

USB and RS-232 Multi-interface, Ethernet and Industrial Ethernet natively supported. Easy system integration.

Inductive, contactless charging technology

Battery contacts and pins often get dirty, bent, or broken over time. Wireless charging technology removes a key point of failure in Industrial and Retail functions.

Designed for mobility

The Datalogic STAR radio is a narrow band two-way radio that allows no interference with existing systems like Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. The dedicated frequency secures a stable communication with the host,
without any interruption of daily activities

Radio Range
High/Low speed to optimize TX Speed/Range

The new antenna design allows the user to reach twice the radio range with respect to the existing PowerScan 9500 series, with the benefits of better mobility for the operator. Additionally, an internal antenna minimizes the footprint with the ability to install cradles in positions with space constraints.
