A True Outdoor Solution
An IP67-rated seal renders the FM3281 Grouper impervious to dust, water, and other contaminants. The high sealing ensures that transitioning from cold to hot temperatures won’t cause condensation that prevents reading the barcodes. With minimized glare and reflection, the FM3281 Grouper is the best choice for reading codes even in the brightest sun conditions, making it the ultimate fixed-mount reader for outdoor applications.
The FM3281 Grouper can provide ongoing status updates to the host, ensuring solution providers with remote applications can guarantee the scanner's operational status and receive timely alerts regarding any potential issues before customers attempt to use it.
Advanced Barcode and OCR Reading
Armed with Newland's sixth-generation technology, the FM3281 Grouper excels at reading onscreen barcodes containing large amounts of data. With its Megapixel technology, this fixed-mount scanner is also perfect for OCR reading applications like ID cards.
IR & Light Triggers for Precise Data Capture
By combining IR and light sensors, the FM3281 Grouper achieves higher sensitivity to activate the scanner to capture barcodes as they are presented. This leads to higher throughput and productivity. The infrared sensor is particularly useful for remote applications with low ambient light conditions, enabling the scanner to read the code even if there are no discernible changes in light.
Full NFC Functionality
The FM3281 Grouper combines excellent barcode and OCR scanning capabilities with full NFC functionality. This versatile scanner supports both contactless RFID cards and barcodes and, when authorized, can potentially be used in payment solutions.
Extra Protocols for Additional Applications
The FM3281 Grouper offers additional communication protocols, including Wiegand and RS485. Wiegand is most suitable for secure access control solutions, while RS485 is an ideal choice for longer cabling or when multiple devices run in parallel over a wider area, as is often the case in industrial settings.
