Designed for Extreme Environments (XE)
The P300FZY meets the most stringent industrial standards, earning the Symbol
XE class label. It is sealed to the IP54 specification against windblown dust
and rain, and withstands multiple 6-ft./1.8 m drops to concrete over the entire
temperature range of -22° to 122°F/-30° to 50°C.
Its XE class ruggedness and high-throughput scanning ability make the P300FZY
an ideal choice for a wide range of 1-D applications in industrial environments
such as distribution centers, manufacturing floors and warehouses.
Innovative Design Features
As innovative as it is rugged, the P300FZY delivers the sophisticated ergonomic
and operational features industrial applications demand. The scanner's exit
window is scratch-resistant and recessed to prevent damage from direct contact.
A twist-to-lock cable seals the scanner and provides superior strain relief.
For those applications requiring quick access and out-of-the-way storage, the
P300FZY comes with a built-in metal hook for attachment to a pulley. And the
large, LED-enhancing window and extra loud 75 dB twin beepers make the "good
decode" feedback impossible to miss. The P300FZY also utilizes the
award-winning Phaser "handle-forward" design making the scanner extremely
comfortable to hold and reduces fatigue when scanning throughout a full shift
in scan-intensive applications.
Building on Symbol's experience and leadership in the industrial hand-held
scanner market, the P300FZY offers numerous hardware and software improvements
that deliver better performance and more durability than ever. The enhanced
digital fuzzy logic processing resides on the single Integrated Multibit
Processor ASIC with a digital signal processor. This results in a noticeable
improvement in decode speed, increased working range, and the ability to read
bar codes that are damaged or poorly printed. The high-visibility 650 nm laser
makes it faster and easier to aim the scanner and read bar codes in sunlight
and bright ambient light. These improvements combine to provide reliable
high-throughput scanning, maximizing user productivity. [end text]
Easy System Integration
The P300FZY has four on-board interfaces for quick and inexpensive direct
connectivity to the widest variety of host systems. These interfaces include
RS-232, keyboard wedge, Wand interfaces and all popular host terminals through
the use of Symbol's Synapse "smart" cables, including those using USB ports.
Synapse "smart" cables provide the flexibility to connect to many different
host types and eliminate the need for separate scanner-to-host controllers. In
addition, the P300FZY has built-in Advanced Data Formatting (ADF), giving you
the ability to modify the bar code data string before sending it to the host.
This feature virtually eliminates formatting-driven application modifications,
making the introduction of the P300FZY into a pre-existing application almost
