With Zebra's introduction of the new 3600 series of rugged scanners they have changed the definition of ruggedness.
Just how rugged is the 3600 Ultra-Rugged Series? When it comes to industrial strength, nobody does it better. In fact, the 3600 Series offers the most indestructible design available today, with the highest drop, tumble and sealing specifications for comparable devices. All scanners in this family offer an 8 ft. 2.4 m drop specification that is 23 percent more durable than any other scanner in this class. These scanners continue to operate reliably—even after 5,000 tumbles. Also, only the 3600 family offers IP67 sealing as well as two sealing ratings—IP67 plus IP65—making it dust-tight and waterproof.
