NCR RealScan 74 Hybrid Scanner/Scale

NCR RealScan 74 Hybrid Scanner/Scale

With its compact, low-profile footprint this high-performance scanner/scale is ideal for space-constrained checkouts and seated cashier environments. It aggressively decodes traditional 1D bar coded items as well as manages 2D bar codes and mobile devices, through NCR hybrid technology that couples laser scan lines with the latest in imaging.

Improves checkout productivity with hybrid technology

NCR’s hybrid technology enables both the lasers and imager to work in conjunction when searching out bar codes. The scanner transparently passes on the information regardless of which technology detects the bar code first. This allows the scanner to leverage the high-performance lasers to carry the bulk of your daily scanning, while offering the flexibility of accepting mobile coupons and mobile loyalty, as well as driver’s licenses and other 2D bar code scanning.

Performance you can count on

This scanner features NCR’s Optical Effects Technology (OFX), which drives more laser scan lines at greater lengths and angles to dramatically improve performance. The resulting dense pattern can capture and read even the most difficult bar codes, including those that are small or truncated. When confronted with problem labels, the high-performance scan pattern and imager quickly recognizes and corrects label defects, using NCR’s patented PACESETTER® technology. And, with six-sided scanning, this scanner delivers maximum performance.

Exceptional investment protection

The NCR RealScan 74 Hybrid is designed to meet current retail requirements as well as future needs with its single footprint design and modular upgradeability. After installation, the scanner can be upgraded to a scale model, enabled with electronic article surveillance deactivation, or it can be advanced to the latest hybrid scanning technology with imaging—allowing your scanner to evolve with your changing business needs.

  • Hybrid technology with laser and imaging
  • Upgradeable to imaging after purchase
  • Scan advisor light bar
  • Audio volume and pitch adjustment
