SPECification Sheet
Symbol LS3478FZ
Rugged cordless scanner
scanner with fuzzy
logic decode capability
Quickly and accurately scans
all 1D bar codes on the first
scan, including poorly printed,
dirty, damaged or low-contrast
bar codes
Cordless scanning
Enables real-time bar code
data collection unrestricted by
a cable, reducing repairs made
necessary by cable failure
Rugged design withstands
multiple 6.5-ft. (2-m) drops
to concrete; 2,500 3.5-ft.
(1-m) tumbles (5,000 hits)
Ensures maximum reliability
with less downtime resulting
from accidental drops
IP65-rated seal (electronic
Protects against water and dust
to ensure reliable performance
in harsh industrial conditions,
reducing unplanned downtime
because of equipment failure
Multi-point communication
Four scanners communicate
to a single cradle for
increased productivity
Accurately scan damaged or
poorly printed bar codes
Motorola’s rugged Symbol LS3478FZ cordless
scanner with fuzzy logic technology enables
rapid and accurate reading of the damaged, dirty
and poorly printed one-dimensional (1D) bar
codes often found in your industrial environment.
These cordless handheld devices offer superior
performance and reliability in the yard, warehouse,
distribution center, manufacturing plant or retail
store. Designed for ease of use, your employees
can comfortably operate the scanner — even over
eight-hour shifts. And the Symbol LS3478FZ grows
with you as your business needs evolve — multiple
onboard interfaces enable you to easily connect to
existing hosts, while also providing the flexibility
to upgrade your systems without having to buy
new scanners.
Eliminate the cord, not performance
Your employees can operate more efficiently when
you eliminate the cable between the device and the
host. Production line technicians are able to scan
damaged and dirty bar codes without being cabled to
the host, saving time and improving data accuracy.
And the elimination of this common point of failure
also translates into less downtime.
Minimize equipment downtime
The Symbol LS3478FZ is designed for scan-intensive
industrial applications in the harshest operating
conditions. Industry-leading impact tests ensure
reliable performance in spite of the inevitable
accidental drops. The device is 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
Symbol LS3478FZ features a built-in metal hook for
attachment to a pulley — ideal for providing quick
access and convenient out-of-the-way storage on a
forklift or in the warehouse. And visible and audible
feedback lets users know when a successful scan is
completed, ensuring that workers remain productive
in spite of noisy machinery or dim lighting.
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 Motorola
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.
