Orbit 7120 & OrbitCG 7180 Hands-Free Scanners

Orbit™ is the all-time, best-selling hands-free omnidirectional scanner for a reason. Several reasons, actually. Let’s start here: The Orbit 7120 and 7180 scanners are innovative, elegant and affordable with an award-winning design that’s just the right fit for convenience retail applications where counter space is at a premium.


  • A 20-line scan omnidirectional pattern provides aggressive scanning as an additional benefit to hand presentation applications.
  • The Orbit scanner has an engineered “sweet spot” to optimize scan performance and first pass read rate.
  • An adjustable scan head enables users to tilt the scanner 30° for targeted scanning of larger products.
  • Retail operations can protect their POS investment with free firmware updates via MetroSet 2 software and a standard PC.
  • A built-in RF EAS antenna (Orbit 7180 scanner only) increases efficiency by simultaneously deactivating RF EAS tags and decoding barcodes.
