Direct Part Marking


Direct Part Marking is a process that allows users to mark a barcode directly on an item instead of printing the barcode on a label, such as plastic and metal. There are three main technologies available for DPM: laser etched marking, dot peening and ink jet printing, with the intent to create a permanent identifier for the item. The permanent nature of the marking, assures that the item can be identified throughout its full life-cycle during the supply chain, even while being exposed to harsh environmental conditions. When it comes to identifying DPM parts throughout the manufacturing process, tracking your valuable assets though their lifecycle or quality control – the unitech MS842P DPM really gets the job done! The MS842P DPM is the ideal solution for the Manufacturing, automotive, aeronautical, medical care, electronic equipment and healthcare markets, where assets are critical.

Durable / Versatile Design


While sustaining a 6-foot (1.8 meter) drop to concrete, MS842P DPM incorporated with IP42 rugged design for protection against dust and moisture. In additions to offer a 32-foot (10m) operation range via its USB dongle, the simple plug-and-play design of MS842P DPM makes the installation much easier without complicated set-up. Moreover, the built-in long life trigger of 10 million times guarantees a continuous productivity for best reliability. In addition to all of those benefits, the MS842P DPM helps to store data in a buffer mode while it is out of range of the wireless signal, and also upload the data when it gets back in range.

Improved Efficiency / Productivity


Beyond its versatility, the desktop charging cradle is provided to store and recharge the scanner, as well as to check the charging status by the power LED indicators. Featuring high speed decoder and high performance engine, MS842P DPM is a great tool to improve productivity at the point of sale, industrial shipment management and inventory management. There is no doubt that MS842P DPM is one of the most efficient wireless scanning solutions in its class.
