SYMBOL DOES NOT INFRINGE METROLOGIC PATENT
SYMBOL DOES NOT INFRINGE METROLOGIC PATENT BOHEMIA, N.Y., March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Symbol Technologies Inc.
(NYSE: SBL), the world leader in bar code-based data capture systems, today announced that the recent suit brought by Metrologic on its U.S. Patent No. 5,081,342, which was issued in January 1992, relating to circuitry for interface controllers for different types of bar code scanners is totally without merit and Symbol will seek to have it dismissed.
"Symbol does not infringe on Metrologic's patent, which was originally filed in 1986, since Symbol's decoders use a different, more sophisticated design than that described and claimed in Metrologic's patent," said Jerome Swartz, chairman and chief executive officer. Symbol Technologies, Inc. is the world leader in bar code-based data capture systems with nearly two million scanners and terminals installed. The company designs, manufactures, and markets bar code reading equipment, hand-held computers, and radio frequency data communications products that are used as strategic building blocks in data collection systems for retailing, manufacturing, distribution, transportation, and many other applications. -0- 3/4/92 /CONTACT: Michael G.
