Castor C5010

The Castor C-5010 is a high performance food retail barcode laser scanner, optimized for horizontal scanning. Thanks to its real vertical scan lines, the need to lift and tilt the product being scanned has disappeared and operator fatique is reduced. Consequently, checkout efficiency increases.

The stainless steel top deck ensures long scanner life time. Its metal housing protects it against harmful interference from the checkout belt's motor and scanner housing suspension protects the unit from shocks. The Castor's height is only 75mm making installation flexible and ergonomic. The Castor features Scantech's unique and patented Goldrush polygon technology, their Scantium decoder ensures optimum performance for multi-decoding tasks and the STAR software enables the Castor to read damaged and substandard bar codes.

An auxiliary port is standard, for connecting other Scantech-ID scanners and a bi-optic scanning solution is realized by connecting the Castor with a vertically installed Pollux, creating the Gemini for high volume throughput.
