MS7120 ORBIT is small in size, but BIG in performance. MS7120 ORBIT is Metrologic's first Point-of Sale barcode scanner to utilize holographic technology to precisely focus the scanner's laser and therefore increase performance and efficiency. MS7120 ORBIT is perfect for retail applications where counter space is at a premium and its unique contoured design allows it to be picked up to scan large, bulky items.
