The camera-based technology used in the MP6000 allows the scanner to quickly and accurately read bar codes improving throughput and reducing strain on cashiers. The technology also provides many features allowing for improved reading of bar codes that may be damaged or distorted, a common problem with traditional laser based scanners.
An optional customer-facing scanner module allows customers to scan bar codes from mobile devices, loyalty cards or coupons while a cashier checks out items, improving throughput and averting unnecessary handling of their mobile device.
The vertical scan window has a wide, tablet-like appearance to improve scanning performance while incorporating a pleasing, backlit capacitive-touch user interface to eliminate mechanical button failure.
The MP6000 was designed so that all of the critical service items can be easily replaced without the need for tools. This reduces the time needed for service in the field and minimizes the number of fasteners needed for assembly.
Traditional laser scanners feature a spinning motor which can generate considerable noise, especially in grocery and retail checkout where stores may have 20+ scanners in a small area. By eliminating the motors, cashiers can keep the volume of the scanner set lower, dramatically reducing ambient noise at the front of a store.
