Motorola / Symbol LS3478-FZ Cordless Rugged Scanner Motorola / Symbol

Accurately scan damaged or poorly printed bar codes

Symbol's rugged LS3478-FZ cordless scanner provides fuzzy logic technology so you're able to rapidly and accurately read the often damaged, dirty and poorly printed one-dimensional (1D) bar codes found in your industrial environment.

In the yard, warehouse, distribution center, manufacturing plant or retail store, these cordless handheld devices offer superior performance and reliability, as well as a user-friendly form factor to help your employees comfortably operate the scanner even over eight-hour shifts. Multiple onboard interfaces ensure you'll be able to use the data capture devices with existing hosts, while giving you the flexibility to upgrade your systems without having to buy new scanners. You'll lay the foundation for an advanced data capture and management solution that grows with you as your business needs evolve.

Eliminate the cord, not performance

Your warehouse, manufacturing and even retail employees operate more efficiently when you eliminate the cable between the device and the host. Your production line technician is able to scan damaged and dirty bar codes without being cabled to the host, enabling you to save time and create more accurate data. And, you've probably noticed the cable is a common point of failure in handheld devices operating in industrial facilities. Having no cord translates into less downtime from cable breakdowns.

Minimize equipment downtime

As innovative as it is rugged, the LS3478-FZ delivers the ergonomic and operational features for scan-intensive industrial applications under the harshest operating conditions. During industry tumble tests, it continued to provide reliable performance even when subjected to multiple drops of 6.5 feet (2 meters) to concrete. An IP65-rated seal makes it impervious to dust and water, and its exit window is scratch-resistant and recessed for the highest level of durability. As a result, you avoid unnecessary equipment downtime or expensive equipment replacement costs.

Provide versatility for your industrial applications

When you require quick scanner access and convenient out-of-the-way storage, such as on a forklift in a warehouse, the LS3478-FZ features a built-in metal hook for attachment to a pulley. Workers will be able to access the scanner easily and stow it quickly when they're finished. Working around noisy machinery and in poorly lit areas, your operators aren't always able to see or hear scanner feedback to quickly determine if scans have completed. Bright LEDs and an adjustable-volume beeper on the LS3478-FZ ensure that decode feedback is clearly visible and audible to users, saving valuable worker time.
