Capture inventory and point-of-sale throughout your retail environment

The P470 cordless scanner is an ergonomic device that captures inventory and point-of-sale data, and then transmits it in real time — even while roaming store or stockroom.

Additional benefits:

  • Offers flexibility to move freely throughout your retail environment to collect bar code data
  • Award-winning, forward-scanning pistol grip design minimizes fatigue during scan-intensive tasks, helping users maintain productivity in comfort
  • Enables workers to key in numeric data such as quantities while scanning
  • Makes cordless data collection simple for in-store uses such as gift registries, point-of-sale scanning, inventory counts and price verification
  • Enables operators to work within a 150-foot range, going far beyond the 6-foot corded device range
  • Portability gives cashiers the ability to collect data on large or bulky items while moving around the cart, speeding checkout and reducing shrinkage


Flexibility that Works Inside and Outside the Enterprise

The Phaser P370 and P470 cordless RF bar code scanners from Motorola 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.

Easy system integration and programmable architecture

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.

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 Motorola.
