Scan pattern switches and mode indicator LEDs are top-mounted for easy viewing Switching scan patterns is easy and convenient for operations with a mix of applications, bar codes and merchandise
Handheld or hands-free operation Operators can scan heavy and bulky items without lifting them onto the checkstand; scan smaller items without lifting the scanner.
Built-in, adjustable stand Operators adjust the Cyclone to their preference to optimize efficiency for maximum throughput

Reads Current and New UCC/EAN Symbologies with Ease

New ways of doing business require new types of bar codes to keep products flowing smoothly from producer to user. The Cyclone scanner was designed to handle new and emerging UCC/EAN-driven symbologies:

The UCC/EAN Reduced Space Symbology (RSS) is a "stacked" linear bar code for items previously too small to be marked. Track previously untrackable data on products so that lot numbers, expiration dates, weights, prices and currency information are included in the bar code.

  • Retail General Merchandise: Label items with complete product identification for better management of inventory and profitability.
  • Convenience Stores and Food Stores: Encode random quantity and weight products, such as meat, produce and cheeses with product identification information for better inventory management and to simplify the order and fulfillment process.

The UCC/EAN Composite Symbology (CS)

combines the standard linear UPC/EAN/JAN code, a proven tool for POS checkout, receiving and inventory tracking, with a two-dimensional (2-D) PDF417 portable data file that incorporates extended product information.
  • Healthcare: Hospitals, drug stores and pharmacies can trace manufacturing lot numbers on pharmaceuticals and other controlled substances. Caregivers can streamline prescription processing and verify patient ID by scanning patient identification cards.
  • Logistics: Gain access to shipping as well as content information at any point in the supply chain.
  • Retail Food: Shopkeepers can record purchase data and identification cards with a single scan of the composite code. The identification and shipping data is securely attached to the product - stored on a bar code no bigger than a postage stamp.

Portable Data File (PDF) is a 2-D data file that holds up to 1 kilobyte of data.

  • Age Verification: Many authorities now encode the date of birth in the PDF symbol on a driver's license, preventing the sale of alcohol or tobacco products to underage customers.
  • National Identification Cards: Many countries use national ID cards to open credit and telephone accounts and for identification at border crossings.
  • Customer Loyalty Cards: Track customers' shopping habits.

Choose the Best Scan Pattern for Your Application

At the point of sale, the Cyclone scanner captures bar code data instantly, shorting checkout lines with "point-and-scan" performance on 1-D, 2-D, RSS and CS symbologies.

Cyclone Omni-Directional Scan Pattern: A rotating omni-directional scan pattern reads even truncated bar codes by eliminating scan pattern "holes."

Raster Scan Pattern: The Cyclone's scan pattern automatically covers 2-D and CS symbols for the best scanning performance on damaged and poorly printed bar codes, while eliminating the need for operator training.

Semi Omni Scan Pattern: The "Semi Omni" scan pattern is a combination of the omni-directional and raster scan patterns. This unique pattern has superb decoding performance on extremely truncated bar codes that you find on small items in convenience, drug and specialty stores.

High Density Single Line Scan Pattern: The Cyclone's single scan line appears as a "mini" raster and scans multiple areas of 1-D codes to swiftly and accurately capture data on poorly printed and damaged bar codes. The single line is ideal for reading bar coded menus and pick lists.

Bright LEDs indicate which scan pattern is working. For intuitive aiming accuracy, even in the brightest lighting conditions and for can't miss, single-pass scanning, the laser diode emits a highly visible beam for easy-to-see scan patterns. When you lift the scanner off the counter, it automatically switches from hands-free to handheld mode. The Cyclone immediately adjusts the scan pattern for optimum handheld data capture. Put the scanner back on the counter and it automatically returns to hands-free mode. If countertop space is at a premium, just place the Cyclone in the optional wall-mount stand.

Premium Features and Unique Ergonomics Adapt to Many Uses

The Cyclone's adjustable, built-in stand accommodates scanning a wide range of item sizes for efficient throughput. The ergonomically shaped handle fits snugly in the hand to ensure a secure grip. The large, contoured scan trigger is handle-mounted for easy point-and-shoot operation. The patented two-finger trigger operates with minimum effort and delivers superior sensory feedback.

There's no need to change the scanner's orientation when changing the scan pattern. All of the scan patterns exit the Cyclone from the large, scratch-resistant and deeply recessed window at the front of the scanner. The broad, rounded stand supplies rock-solid support for checkstand or countertop use. For maximum non-slip security, rubber feet cushion the bottom of the scanner.

Ingenious Design Provides Superior Throughput

Symbol's attention to detail comes through in design elements such as the twin beepers built into the sides of the Cyclone scanner handle. The scanner beeper is loud enough to be heard by operators working in noisy environments.

Cyclone scanners offer a host of high-performance features for unmatched adaptability at the point of sale. The Cyclone provides direct connections to IBM, USB, RS-232 and Symbol's Synapse "smart" cabling that provides connectivity to all popular host terminals. Synapse Smart Cables eliminate the need for separate scanner-to-host controllers. Electronic Article Surveillance deactivation is also an option; locating the deactivation antenna within the scanner saves precious space at the point of sale, and eliminates secondary operations.

Advanced Data Formatting, another Symbol breakthrough, enhances Cyclone data capture productivity. No need to modify host-system software to match data input formats. Instead, simply program the Cyclone. The scanner translates the bar code string and, for later tracking, stamps the bar code prefix with time, date and the number of the employee who scanned the data.

Like every scanner from Symbol, the Cyclone is an unbeatable value because it is backed by Symbol's global network of service and support from the world leader in bar code-driven data management systems, with millions of scanners and terminals installed.
