Florence, KY—November 01, 2007—BlueStar, the leading innovator in solutions-based distribution for Auto ID, Point-of-Sale, Mobility and RFID products, is announcing it is distributing the new Datalogic Scanning Magellan® 8400 scanner.

The Magellan® 8400 scanner is a high-performance POS bi-optic scanner. This newest Magellan® improves operational efficiency by achieving outstanding first-pass-read rates and offering the newest Datalogic Scanning bi-optic technology for reading poor-quality bar code labels.

The product’s quality and reliability significantly reduces component failure points. The Magellan® 8400 is available as either a scanner/scale or as a scanner only. The scanner/scale is available in two lengths: long and medium. The scanner alone is available in three lengths: long, medium, and short.
