SPECIFICATION Sheet Symbol DS3478 Series Rugged cordless digital scanners FEATURES Ability to read all standard 1D and 2D bar codes Increases productivity by leveraging the high performance of 2D bar codes: one device reads all industry standard bar codes Ability to capture high density bar codes (HD unit only) Increases productivity by enabling users to read high density 2D bar codes in addition to all industrystandard bar codes. Ability to read a wide variety of DPM marks (DPM unit only) Enhances quality processes and improves lifetime product traceability Integrated Bluetooth Class 1 v 1.2 Cable-free convenience; secure wireless transmissions; reduces repairs due to cable failure Capture bar codes, and direct part marks with laser-like precision The Symbol DS3478 Series of cordless rugged digital scanners is designed to bring high performance data capture to harsh industrial environments to improve business efficency. This scanner family offers digital imaging technology, providing the rapid and accurate capture of one-dimensional (1D) and two-dimensional (2D) bar codes, and direct part marks (DPM) with the high performance typically found only in laser scanners. Regardless of the types of data capture required in your enterprise, there is a DS3478 Series model that will fit your needs. Cordless freedom improves productivity Integrated Bluetooth eliminates the cord between the scanner and the host, enabling employees to move freely throughout the work environment. Productivity, efficiency, and even worker safety can be improved. Plus, the elimination of the cord reduces downtime from cable breakdowns — a common point of failure in handheld devices used in industrial environments. High performance that speeds productivity 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 typical digital scanners. The wide working range and two-position smart focus technology, unique to Motorola, enable fast and accurate reading of bar codes of virtually any size or density. Omni-directional scanning functionality eliminates the need to align the bar code and scanner, allowing operators to quickly capture bar codes and marks from any angle. Built for industrial environments As innovative as it is rugged, the DS3478 Series delivers the ergonomic and operational features for scan-intensive industrial applications under the harshest operating conditions. The device is designed to perform reliably despite the inevitable bumps and drops — even on concrete. An IP65-rated seal makes it impervious to dust and water, and the exit window is scratchresistant and recessed for the highest level of durability. As a result, enterprises enjoy a low total cost of ownership — employee and device downtime as well as equipment repair and replacement costs are minimized. In addition, noisy machinery and poor lighting can make it difficult for operators to see or hear scanner feedback to ensure proper completion of scans. Symbol’s DS3478 Series addresses this challenge with bright LEDs and an adjustable volume beeper, ensuring that decode feedback is clearly visible and audible to users, saving valuable worker time. Omni-directional scanning Increases productivity by eliminating the need to orient scanner and bar code Rugged design withstands multiple 6.5 ft./2 m drops to concrete Ensures maximum reliability with less downtime resulting from accidental drops IP65-rated sealing Protects against water and dust for reliable performance in harsh industrial conditions Bright LED and beeper with adjustable volume Multiple confirmation modes for positive user feedback in noisy environments Two-position smart focus Unique to the Symbol DS3478 Series, this feature provides two focal positions for optimum application flexibility and performance Advanced data formatting Eliminates costly modifications to the host software Multiple on-board interfaces and universal cable set Ensures flexible connectivity with different hosts; enables easy upgrading of hosts and cable replacement; provides investment protection Three models to meet many needs This diverse product line offers a number of models designed to meet a wide variety of application needs across a variety of industries: DS3478-SF: Flexible 1D and 2D bar code capture The DS3478-SF offers the flexibility to meet the needs of a wide variety of applications and environments, with 1D and 2D bar code scanning as well as support for a wide variety of interfaces for easy integration with new and legacy systems. The DS3478-SF is designed to streamline inventory management in scan intensive, fast-paced environments, from the largest warehouse to the retail backroom, where a quick scan enables the automatic and accurate capture of the information required to increase productivity and reduce errors. At the receiving dock, a scan of the bar code on the boxes, pallets or bill of lading enables automatic reconciliation of incoming shipments for faster processing of incoming goods. In put-away and picking, a quick scan can determine where product should be stored and also verify that product was placed on the right shelf, eliminating false out-of-stocks due to misplacement — and lost sales. In shipping, a quick scan verifies that the right shipment is addressed to the right person, eliminating costly mis-ships. DS3478-HD: Optimized for comprehensive 2D bar code capture The DS3478-HD offers the same capabilities as the DS3478-SF, but is optimized for the very tiny and dense 2D bar codes frequently found in warehousing, transportation and logistics, and manufacturing environments. In manufacturing operations, the DS3478-HD allows even small parts with small bar code labels to be easily scanned to verify that the right part is used at the right time. As a result, product quality improves, increasing customer satisfaction and retention. Real-time inventory visibility allows manufacturers to reduce standard stocking levels, reducing warehouse space requirements and increasing inventory turns and profitability. And in the event you are notified of a defective part, you can easily trace the location of defective product for more rapid and targeted recalls, protecting brand image, customer perception and recall costs. And companies involved in warehousing, shipping and delivery of smaller items can easily read the small, dense 2D bar codes that may be utilized on smaller packages. DS3478-DP: Comprehensive bar code scanning with support for 1D, 2D and DPM bar codes In automotive, aerospace, medical and other heavy manufacturing environments, a wide variety of data types are typically in use, including 1D and 2D bar codes as well as permanent bar codes, known as direct part marks (DPM). The DS3478-DP provides manufacturers with a single flexible device capable of capturing all 1D and 2D bar codes as well as every type of direct part mark — including dot peen. This powerful scanner combines highly advanced DPM-specific software with the functionality of the DS3478-SF and the focusing capability of the DS3478-HD, allowing workers to easily capture even the very tiny and dense marks frequently utilized in DPM applications. Reduce capital and operational expenses The ability to capture multiple data types with a single device eliminates the need to purchase, manage and maintain multiple devices to accommodate multiple bar code symbologies in the enterprise. As a result, the enterprise enjoys a fast return on investment. Since one device does it all, capital and operational costs are reduced — and productivity is increased. Less training is required. And the simplification of the mobility architecture translates into less demand on your IT staff, leaving them more time to address more crucial IT business initiatives. 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 the new systems of the future. We back up our leading scanner design with a full threeyear warranty. And to help protect your investment, Motorola Enterprise Mobility Services offers Service from the Start with Comprehensive Coverage. This unique service goes far beyond normal wear and tear to include accidental damage to exit windows, scan elements and more at no additional charge.
