Motorola / Symbol LS3478-ER Rugged Cordless Scanner
Capture Bar Codes Over a Wide Range of Distances
With the rugged cordless LS3478-ER scanner, you get the greatest working range of any available rugged scanner. You’ll speed processes by allowing your employees to scan items on pallets as close as 4 inches (10 centimeters) away and shelves as far away as 45 feet (13.7 meters). In addition, your employees will be able to quickly switch from reading bar codes on inventory to capturing smaller symbologies on bar code menus and pick lists.
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 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 forklift operator is able to drive to an aisle, scan a pallet up to 45 feet away and capture the data, without being cabled to the host. You save time and keep supply chain inventory up to date at all times. 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-ER delivers ergonomic and operational features for scan-intensive industrial applications under the harshest operating conditions. During industry tumble tests, it continued to provide reliable performance when subjected to multiple 6.5-foot (2- meter) drops 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 within a warehouse, the LS3478-ER 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 or in poorly lit areas, your operators aren’t always able to see or hear scanner feedback to quickly determine if the scans have completed. Bright LEDs and an adjustable-volume beeper on the LS3478-ER ensure that decode feedback is clearly visible and audible to users, saving valuable worker time.
End Maintenance Worries with a Full Suite of Services and Support
Even the most rugged scanners need a support plan to cover maintenance. That’s why Symbol covers every aspect of your mobility solution— from network design to ongoing operations— providing unsurpassed breadth and depth of coverage to ensure all of your services and support needs are met.
