Easy System Integration and Programmable Architecture

The P360 and P460 offer easy system integration along with a programmable architecture that extends functionality beyond basic barcode scanners. Both the P360 and P460 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 barcode data to be modified by the scanner before it is sent to the host application. The P360 and P460 scanners can be programmed via PC download or by scanning barcodes generated by the utility.

For added versatility, you can also purchase MCLTM-Designer software, a programmable architecture that extends P360 and P460 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 P360 and P460 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 P360 and P460 memory barcode scanners, you can choose the device that best meets your application needs in any environment. The P360 is suited for extreme environments, making it ideal for warehouse, yard or loading dock applications. And the P460 delivers the identical data capture functionality for in-store uses like gift registry, POS scanning, inventory counts and price verification. Both scanners deliver the proven performance and affordability that customers have grown to expect from Symbol.
