Designed for Extreme Environments (XE)
The P300PRO 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 P300PRO
an ideal choice for a wide range of 2-D and 1-D applications in industrial
environments such as distribution centers, manufacturing floors and
Innovative Design Features
As innovative as it is rugged, the P300PRO 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
P300PRO 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 P300PRO 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
When high-productivity scanning is required, the P300PRO delivers 560 scans per
second for faster 2-D and 1-D bar code reading. This high-performance
field-proven 650 nm laser technology makes easy work of difficult applications
like scanning through layered plastic wrap or glass such as an automobile
windshield. In addition to great performance, the P300PRO excels at handling
real-world conditions such as poor ambient lighting, conveyer belt vibrations
and hand jitter caused by fast-paced volume scanning. With point-and-shoot
aiming, the programmable laser spot mode focuses the laser output into a very
bright, concentrated spot for easy sighting on symbols even in direct sunlight.
Making it easy for first-time users, smart raster automatically detects a 2-D
bar code and scans it vertically, eliminating the need for manual rastering.
This feature further increases your productivity by scanning only the symbol,
and none of the blank area, text or other symbols around it.
Easy System Integration
Enabling effortless connectivity to hosts, the P300PRO has a direct-connect
RS-232 capability and Symbol's Synapse "smart" cable connectivity to all
popular host terminals including those using USB ports. Synapse "smart" cables
eliminate the need for separate scanner-to-host interface controllers. In
addition, the P300PRO has built-in Advanced Data Formatting (ADF), giving you
the ability to modify the bar code data string before sending it to your host.
This feature frees your application from the burdens of data formatting.
