Affordable handheld barcode scanner

Supplier News

SYMBOL Technologies has introduced the LS3008 handheld scanner designed for high-performance and reliability in healthcare, warehousing, manufacturing, and back-end retail environments.

Boasting a small, ergonomic form factor, the LS3008 broadens Symbol’s rugged scanner portfolio to meet the needs of customers and markets where cost and ergonomics are critical factors.

Built to withstand the rigours of everyday use, including frequent drops to concrete and exposure to water and dust, the scanner is sealed to IP53 standards and provides optimised productivity while reducing the need for equipment repairs, ultimately lowering the total cost of ownership.

Bob Sanders, vice president and general manager of Symbol’s advanced data capture division, said Symbol’s new scanner puts a rugged and highly reliable scanner in reach of all customers regardless of size or market.

“The LS3008 is an easy-to-use, lightweight barcode scanner that requires minimal training and enables users to scan objects comfortably in less than optimum conditions,” he said.

Providing customers with real-time access to business-critical information to help improve decision-making processes and streamline operations, the new LS3008 is equipped with multi-line rastering scan pattern to eliminate the need for exact aim and positioning.

This feature enables customers to quickly and accurately scan one-dimensional (1D) barcodes, including those that are damaged, small or poorly printed, without delay or the need to rescan.

The scanner reduces total-cost-of-ownership by enabling remote, network-based device management to lower IT expenses and enable customisation in large, multi-scanner environments. Along with a scratch-resistant, tempered glass window for high-quality scanning, the LS3008 also offers single circuit-board construction eliminating the failure points commonly found in competing scanners.

To help customers protect their investment and maintain peak performance, Symbol Global Services offers Service from the Start Advance Exchange Support for the LS3008. This multi-year service agreement provides next-business-day delivery of a replacement device to help organisations maximise uptime and productivity.

Symbol’s Service from the Start Advance Exchange Support also includes Symbol’s unique Comprehensive Coverage, which extends normal wear and tear to cover accidental damage to scan elements, exit windows and other internal and external components at no extra charge — virtually eliminating unforeseen repair expenses.
