Review: M3 Orange S scanner


M3 Orange S barcode scanner device

The M3 Orange S barcode scanner device will provide your business with high quality data capture and mobile communication at an industrial level of ruggedness.

So it’s no wonder that it’s one of the most popular pieces of warehouse management equipment on the market thanks to the fact that it is smaller, lighter and has an integrated HF reader.

Here, Neil Olsson, an experienced Business Development Manager for Optima Warehouse Solutions, gives his reasons for recommending the M3 Orange S barcode scanner for warehousing.

M3 Orange S

A lot has changed over the last few years and barcode scanners have become much easier to use than ever before.

Picking the right scanner can sometimes be tricky which is why I recommend the M3 Orange S, a device that has been tried and tested with a lot of our customer base.

Firstly they are very easy to set up. It takes less than 30 minutes for one of our project managers to configure the scanners to enable our WMS to be used, and the operating system can be either WM 6.5 OR CE 6.

The M3 Orange has also been drop tested up to 1.8m / 6ft  and works at temperatures ranging from -20 to 50c and stored between 30 to 70c, making it an extremely rugged piece of equipment and perfect for most warehouses.

It’s also available in 1D laser or 2D imager it also offers the choice of Qwerty or Azerty keyboard.

Other accessories available:

  • Spare Battery
  • Pistol Grip
  • Cradles
  • Charging Holster
  • Snap on
  • Leather case
  • USB cable
  • Stylus pen
  • Extended warranties and service plans
  • UK repair centre

Another reason M3 Orange is such a big hit with our customers is the price, coming in at £650 plus VAT, it really is great value for money for what you are getting, compared with brands such as Motorola and Datalogic that could be twice that easily.

We’ve seen a large number of our clients opt for the M3 Orange because of all the reasons I have listed, including; E2B based in Watford,  BOXstation based in Leicestershire and The Fulfilling Station based in Bristol.
