The flattest horizontal scan solution
The Castor is the high-performance food retail bar code scanner and the pearl under the horizontal scanners. Designed from a quality point of view, the Castor
comes with a stainless steel top deck to ensure a long lifetime and with a metal housing. The Castor is well protected against harmful interference from the moving belt's motor and against electrical static discharge from the operator. With real vertical scan lines, the need to lift and tilt a product being scanned has disappeared and operator fatigue is reduced. Consequently, checkout efficiency increases. Like all other Scantech scanners, the Castor is optimised for EAS integration and is compatible with today's market solutions.
The Scantech Castor C-5010 is the flattest and most rugged retail bar code laser scanner. With a great design and proven reliability, the Castor C-5010 is optimised for horizontal scanning. Scantech's Scantium decoder will ensure optimum performance on all occasions for multi-decoding tasks.
Cost of ownership
The Castor features Scantech's unique and patented Goldrush polygon technology. Evaporated gold on the polygon makes it ultra light, giving longer motor life and faster "wake-up" times from the energy saving sleep mode. In addition, a flash EPROM gives the possibility to upgrade the firmware within the twinkling of an eye. Thanks to a shockproof scanner housing suspension, the Castor is also well protected against shocks.
Reading of damaged bar codes
Thanks to the specially developed STAR software, the Castor can easily read truncated, damaged and substandard bar codes. The special code stitching intelligence enables the Castor to reconstruct the damaged code.
The Castor is the flattest horizontal scanner on the market. The Castor's height is only 75 mm! This ensures a flexible and ergonomic installation under all circumstances.
The Castor comes in two interface versions: RS232 and OCIA or IBM RS485 and Keyboard Wedge. Furthermore, the Castor is standard equipped with an
auxiliary port for connecting other Scantech scanners. For example a hand held scanner can be connected for heavy or voluminous products.
