Motorola present first imaging-based bioptic scanner\scale MP6000 which scan traditional paper-based bar codes as well as bar codes delivered on the screen of a mobile device.

Motorola’s first imaging-based bioptic scanner\scale will help customers quickly checkout and scan traditional paper-based bar codes as well as bar codes delivered on the screen of a mobile device. Customers are rapidly adopting electronic bar codes that represent loyalty cards, discount coupons and gift cards for their value and convenience, since they can be stored on the one device they have with them at all times — their mobile phones.

With the optional Customer Side Scanner of MP6000, you can give your shoppers the convenience of scanning bar codes displayed on the screen of their mobile phones that represent electronic coupons, loyalty cards and more, as well as traditional paper coupons and plastic loyalty cards. Cashiers never need to ask customers to hand over their mobile phones to scan mobile bar codes, eliminating the liability for damages incurred if a cashier accidentally drops a shopper’s phone. You can order the MP6000 with this accessory or add it at any time — it simply snaps onto either side of the MP6000. And since the Customer Side Scanner fits completely within the rugged body of the MP6000, it has no impact on the MP6000 footprint, minimizing the need for costly POS lane modifications.

Studies have shown that in a grocery environment, the natural position of a bar code is on the top of an item around 8% of the time. Without top-down reading, all these items will need orientation, slowing the cashier and increasing musculo-skeletal load. With MP 6000 there is no need for cashiers to align bar codes with the scanner. The MP6000 offers true swipe-and-go scanning with omni-directional 360° 6-sided scanning plus a large horizontal window and a large edge-to-edge vertical window, which provide a very wide active scanning area. Cashiers just need to slide items through the scan zone and bar codes will be captured, however they are presented — even if the bar code is facing the cashier.

Manufacturers are using new GS1 DataBar and 2D bar codes to improve inventory management throughout the retail supply chain. Array imagers, as well as reading printed 1D and 2D bar codes, can also read barcodes from electronic screens, such as cell phones, PDAs, tablets and PC screens, in all orientations and from all windows. The MP6000 handles the most challenging bar codes with ease, without any performance degradation — including bar codes that are scratched, dirty, poorly printed, on curved surfaces, under plastic wrap or on bakery goods that are dusted with flour.

Scans bar codes at a higher rate than any laser bioptic scanner available today with Motorola’s industry leading, proven imaging technology. Minimize breakdown and maintenance costs — there are no moving parts in the scan engine, reducing power consumption by at least 30 percent. Unlike laser scanners, there is no motor noise, so the MP6000 is practically silent.

Order the MP6000 with or without a scale, and a scale can be added at any time. The standard MP6000 scale measures 0-15kg in 5g increments.  This is suitable for almost all applications.  As an extra-cost option, Motorola offers a dual-interval scale, which measures 0-6kg in 2g increments/6-15kg in 5g increments. This is for specialized applications where the retailer is regularly measuring small weights, and allows the minimum amount weighed to be around half that of the standard scale. Dual-interval is not the sole offering because the more accurate scale is more costly.

In some markets, there is no need for a scale display, as the POS displays the weight from the scale in real time (even when not actually being used for a transaction).  This is called “live weight”. Where a scale display is mandatory or used by choice, Motorola offers single- and dual-head options. The MP6000 is offered in the three most common lengths, and a single depth that suits both EU seated cashier rules and the global market.

Bioptic imager MP6000 supports the Checkpoint or Sensormatic system you have in place today — no need to spend time and money to upgrade. Each MP6000 ships with a Checkpoint® antenna included, ready for connection.

The MP6000 is designed for the very rugged environments where items in durable packs like steel and glass are scanned at high velocities, and heavy items can be dropped on the scanner.  The horizontal window is covered with a sapphire crystal which can only be scratched by an industrial diamond or the same sapphire as the crystal itself. The assembly can survive impacts from a 500g (1 pound) steel ball dropped from heights of over 125cm (50”) without damage. The lower horizontal window and vertical window are chemically tempered glass.

Motorola’s powerful complimentary management software — Scanner Management Service (SMS) and 123Scan — enables remote and automated configuration and monitoring of the scanner, the scale, the Customer Side Scanner and an attached Motorola handheld scanner.

You can remotely manage MP6000s anywhere in the world from a centralized location with Motorola free Scanner Management Service (SMS) software or load free 123Scan management software onto a laptop for local management. You also can create a file with 123Scan to configure the entire system — scanner, scale and peripherals — and load the file onto a USB Flash drive. Then automatically configure the entire POS system by simply plugging the USB drive into any MP6000.

And moreover you can copy any existing MP6000 system configuration by simply plugging a blank USB Flash drive into a working MP6000. The USB drive can then be plugged into a new or recently repaired MP6000 to automatically configure the entire system — scanner, scale, Customer Side Scanner and handheld scanner.

An impressive list of benefits provides a maximum return on this business-critical investment, as well as a low total cost of ownership.
