Product Highlights

  • Drop-Resistant To 5.0'
  • Plug-And-Play
  • Lightweight Ergonomic Design
  • Works With Popular Barcode Formats
  • Multiple Connectivity Options

The durable Symbol LS4208 Handheld Scanner from Motorola features a lightweight, ergonomic design that is drop-resistant up to 5.0'. The barcode scanner features a wide working range - from contact to 19.0" (48 cm) for easy and convenient use. The reader's design takes the guesswork out of proper positioning and angling and thanks to its wide angle of coverage (side-to-side, up and down, and tilt), it's easy to learn how to use and will shorten the lines at the register or speed up any other job. Additionally, the reader can be used hands-free as well as trigger-operated with easy switching between the 2. The scanner is compatible with many barcode formats including UPC, EAN, Code 39, Code 128, Code 93, MSI, Code 11, and IATA codes.

Increase Performance With Motorola's Next-Generation Scanner For Customers Who Value Productivity

With the Symbol LS4208 handheld laser bar code scanner, you're able to effortlessly speed throughput, even with bar codes in poor condition. Wherever you need to quickly capture and process data - such as at the retail checkout counter, in pharmacies and hospitals, and in light warehouse environments - this ergonomically designed scanner helps you increase accuracy, improve productivity, cut maintenance costs and reduce the risk of downtime

Benefit From Innovative Features Never Before Delivered By A Single Scanner

The Symbol LS4208 delivers intuitive, productivity enhancing functionality that allows even your novice users to quickly capture data. Its innovative multi-line rastering scan pattern virtually eliminates the need for end-user training, and lets you scan all types of one-dimensional (1D) bar codes, including damaged symbols or stacked GS1 DataBar (formerly RSS) bar codes. The PDF configuration expands the decoding capabilities to include PDF417, microPDF and composite symbologies. In addition, the scanner's 19-inch scanning range and superior motion tolerance gives users greater flexibility to rapidly and accurately capture data from a variety of items without pausing between scans, while recently added faster scanning and decoding capabilities mean employees are able to process more items more rapidly and spend less time keying in data

Minimize Your Chances Of Downtime

Designed for constant, rigorous use in retail, office and light industrial settings, the Symbol LS4208 provides you with reliability you'll be able to depend on. Along with a 6 ft. drop spec that allows the scanner to keep on running even after dropped repeatedly to concrete, the Symbol LS4208 also offers single circuit-board construction. By eliminating the failure points commonly found with interconnect ribbon cables, this unique design feature helps to lower your total cost of ownership

Future-Proof Your Investment

The Symbol LS4208 provides you with next generation technology today and the adaptability to meet your needs in the future. The scanner's multi-interface and universal cables enable connection to a variety of hosts, allowing you to easily update your systems. In addition, since the Symbol LS4208 is designed for the newest and emerging 1D symbologies such as GS1 DataBar (formerly RSS) bar codes, as well as PDF and other variants (PR configuration), you'll be able to continue using the same device for all your scanning requirements, even though your requirements may change
