Premium Performance & Durability - At An Affordable Price
The QuickScan 6000 Plus barcode scanner is designed specifically for retail POS and features an unprecedented combination: the superior performance and rugged design of a high-end POS scanner and an affordable price.

High Performance Engine, Electronics, Optics
Key to the QS6000 Plus barcode scanner's performance is its reading engine, which utilizes proven technology to maintain a high overall first-pass read rate and to neutralize the negative effects of bright ambient light. Plus, PSC's advanced electronics perform solidly even when reading bar-coded labels with low contrast or poor edge definition. The QS6000 Plus's unique optical design is fast and responsive when reading from contact to 13" (33 cm).

Built to Last
Continuing PSC's commitment to quality, the QS6000 Plus barocde scanner incorporates the most advanced, high durability features available today. The scan motor is made from hardened metal, a substantial improvement over the plastic scan motors of the past. The reading engine and optics are protected by anti-shock mounts built to absorb up to 2000 Gs. In fact, the QS6000 Plus can withstand repeated 5 ft (152cm) drops to concrete.

Durability by Design
The QS6000 Plus barcode scanner also features a strong, plastic enclosure that guards against liquid and dust infiltration. A tough, rubber-like shield cushions the scanner when dropped, protects the scan window from scratching and prevents the scanner from slipping off counter surfaces. The coiled cable, with strain relief and end cap, is made from rugged, tear-resistant polyurethane and retains its memory after repeated flexing and stretching.

Lightweight & Ergonomic For Maximum Scanning Comfort & Productivity
The QuickScan 6000 barcode scanner was developed with operator comfort in mind - a critical factor that ensures extended operator productivity. Its evenly balanced design lets it be held easily in any size hand, and its low weight enables it to be used comfortably for even long periods of time. The positive response trigger provides tactile feedback when pressed, yet allows the operator's index finger to relax comfortably between scans. When the scanner is resting on a horizontal surface, in a stand, or in a belt holster, its handle can be quickly and easily grasped for 'scoop and scan' simplicity.

Connectivity For Any Environment
Support for all popular POS interfaces and keyboard wedges is standard.

The QS6000 Plus bar code scanner reads all major bar code symbologies, auto-discriminating between codes. Full support is also included for the UPC/EAN family, add-ons and other types of code extensions.

The QuickScan 6000 PlusBarcode Scanner: An Outstanding Value
With the QS6000 Plus barcode scanner, there's no need to make trade-offs between quality and affordability. High-end performance, advanced ergonomic design, enhanced durability - the combination of these features in the QS6000 Plus adds up to one of the best values in the industry.
