Symbol DS3478 Barcode Scanner

Rugged Cordless Digital Scanner.

Symbol s rugged DS3478-SF cordless digital scanner uses digital imaging technology to accurately capture all types of one-dimensional (1D) and two-dimensional (2D) bar codes while offering the high performance typically found only in laser scanners. With the DS3478-SF, you benefit from a scanning solution designed specifically for fast-paced production environments. The DS3478-SF comes equipped with charge coupled device (CCD) image sensors, which allow them to more accurately capture and process bar codes at a faster pace than other digital scanners. In addition, the scanner's omni-directional scanning functionality lets operators quickly capture bar codes from any angle, eliminating the need to line up bar codes with laser lines. The DS3478-SF has the widest working range of any scanner in its class. Its two-position smart focus technology, unique to Symbol, allows you to read bar codes regardless of the size or density of the code. This means this single device works well for all your scanning needs. Your warehouse, manufacturing and even retail employees operate more efficiently when you eliminate the cable between the device and the host. 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 fewer repairs and less downtime from cable breakdowns.

Symbol DS3478 Specifications

Capture bar codes, images and direct part marks with laser-like precision

The Symbol DS3478 Series of rugged, cordless digital scanners uses digital imaging technology to accurately read a wide variety of one-dimensional (1D) and two-dimensional (2D) bar codes as well as direct part marks (DPM) while offering the high performance typically found only in laser scanners. Available in three models, the DS3478-SF is ideal for capturing one-dimensional (1D) and two-dimensional (2D) bar codes. If you also need to capture high density 2D matrix codes, choose the DS3478-HD. For direct part marks, select the DS3478-DP.

Designed specifically for fast-paced production environments, the DS3478 Series is equipped with charge coupled device (CCD) image sensors, which enable faster and more accurate data capture and processing than other digital scanners. The wide working range and two-position smart focus technology, unique to Motorola, provides the flexibility to meet scanning needs in a wide range of applications and environments. In addition, the omni-directional scanning functionality lets operators quickly capture bar codes and marks from any angle.

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. 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 fewer repairs and less downtime from cable breakdowns.

Minimize equipment downtime

As innovative as it is rugged, the Symbol DS3478 Series 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.

Versatility for your industrial applications

Working around noisy machinery and in poorly lit areas, your operators arenít always able to see or hear scanner feedback to quickly determine if scans have completed. Bright LEDs and an adjustable volume beeper on the Symbol DS3478 Series ensure that decode feedback is clearly visible and audible to users, saving valuable worker time.

An investment for now and the future

In addition to the productivity-enhancing features you need to keep business moving, the DS3478 Series provides you with investment protection. Onboard support for multiple interfaces, a standard feature, allows you to use your scanner with many different types of systems for seamless integration now, as well as painless migration to new ones in the future. We back up our leading scanner design with a full three-year warranty. And to help you derive full value from your investment, Motorola's Service from the Start - Bronze provides defined telephone technical support and rapid repair turnaround times for seamless coverage and true service peace of mind.
