Motorola DS3478 Rugged Bar Code Scanner

The Motorola DS3478 Series of rugged, cordless scanners uses digital imaging technology to accurately capture direct part marks (DPM) and 1D and 2D bar codes.

The series is available in three models. The DS3478-SF is ideal for scanning 1D and 2D bar codes. For high-density 2D matrix codes, choose the DS3478-HD. For DPM, select the DS3478-DP. Two-position "Smart" focus technology, unique to Motorola, provides the flexibility to meet scanning needs in a wide range of applications and environments. Omni-directional scanning, available on all models, lets operators quickly capture symbols from any angle.
