Metrologic’s MS9520 Voyager with a futuristic design and high-performance scanning system represents the best auto-triggered scanner value on the market.

Metrologic’s goal was to develop a hand-held scanner that was equally effective as a presentation device and would incorporated several innovative new features while making it durable enough to offer a five year warranty. Flash ROM upgrades, data editing utilities and user-replaceable cables lead the extensive features list of what has become the industries guide for measuring hand-held laser bar code scanners, MS9520 Voyager.

Flash ROM allows the firmware to be upgraded easily, and as software updates become available, each Voyager can be updated with all of the latest features utilizing an easy-to-use Windows® -based program. Using MetroSet2®’s data transmitting to meet the requirements of the host system.

Voyager includes the ability to decode the emerging Reduced Space Symbology (RSS). Industries including supermarkets, pharmaceutical, and healthcare are beginning to utilize this new symbology. For those Voyager’s already deployed, an online Flash ROM upgrade is available at
