PhaserTM P370 and P470
Phaser P370 and P470
Flexibility that works inside and outside
the enterprise
The Phaser P370 and P470 cordless RF bar code scanners from
Symbol Technologies are rugged, high-performance wireless devices
that enable instant decision-making and seamless communications
throughout the enterprise.
Designed with a comfortable forward-scanning pistol grip to minimize
fatigue in scan-intensive applications, the P370 and P470 scanners
are available in keypad or keyless configurations.

Cordless RF scanning
Enables real-time bar code data
collection wherever cables
restrict movement or limit access
The P370 and P470 offer easy system integration along with a
programmable architecture that extends functionality beyond basic
bar code scanners. For fast integration, both the P370 and P470
support the 123Scan setup utility software, a convenient Microsoft®
Windows®-based program that helps reduce your start-up time and
costs for these scanners. This free utility enables you to configure
communication settings and enable/disable symbologies. It also
assists you in generating advanced data formatting (ADF) rules to
allow bar code data to be modified by the scanner before it is sent to
the host application. The P370 and P470 scanners can be programmed
via PC download or by scanning bar codes generated by the utility.

For added versatility, you can also purchase MCLTM-Designer
software, a programmable architecture that extends scanner
functionality. Even non-programmers can develop custom data
management applications to harness the on-board computing power
of these scanners. Further, MCL-Link communication software easily
connects the P370 and P470 to your host. Capabilities include ODBC
database connectivity plus the automation of frequent tasks such as
nightly data downloads and look-up file updates.
Advanced long-range functionality
Enables users to read bar codes
from as far as 30 feet (9.1
meters) for maximum productivity

Proven performance and affordability
With the Phaser P370 and P470 cordless RF bar code scanners, you
can choose the device that best meets your application needs in any
environment. The P370 is suited for extreme environments, making it
ideal for warehouse, yard or loading dock applications. And the P470
delivers the identical data capture functionality for in-store uses
including stockroom tasks and oversized item checkout. Both
scanners deliver the proven performance and affordability that
customers have grown to expect from Symbol.
