Motorola LS3578-ER Barcode Scanners

This device scans all one-dimensional (1D) barcodes over a wide range of distances.

Scan all one-dimensional (1D) barcodes from practically anywhere with a Bluetooth-enabled cordless rugged scanner. The Symbol LS3578-ER reads labels as far away as 45 feet and as close as four inches--the greatest working range available in a rugged, handheld scanner. Ergonomically designed to be comfortable during long shifts, the scanner gives operators a 150-foot range, which far exceeds the 6-foot corded device range. Designed for use in harsh environments, the Symbol LS3578-ER withstands multiple 6.5-ft. (2-m) drops to concrete and has IP65-rated sealing for protection against the elements. Remote Scanner Management (RSM) enables efficient upgrades from a central location.

Motorola LS3578-ER Details

Rugged, cordless scanner with integrated Bluetooth

Capture barcodes over a wide range of distances

The Symbol LS3578-ER rugged, cordless scanner provides the greatest working range of any available rugged scanner, allowing employees to scan items from as close as 4 inches/10 cm to as far away as 45 feet /13.7 m. It also allows employees to quickly switch from reading bar codes on inventory to capturing smaller symbologies on barcode menus and pick lists.

In the yard, warehouse, distribution center, manufacturing plant or retail store, the Symbol LS3578-ER offers superior performance and reliability as well as a user-friendly form factor that helps ensure comfortable use over long shifts. Plus, integrated Bluetooth wireless personal area networking (WPAN) provides reliable and secure wireless data transmission between the scanner and host.

Cordless freedom for improved productivity

By eliminating the cord between the scanner and host, employees can move freely throughout their work environment, increasing productivity and efficiently. You save time and keep supply chain inventory up to date at all times. Plus, having no cord translates into less downtime from cable breakdowns � a common point of failure in handheld devices used in industrial facilities.

Rugged design to maximize uptime

As rugged as it is innovative, the Symbol LS3578-ER is designed for scan-intensive industrial applications in the harshest operating conditions. Industry-leading impact tests ensure reliable performance in spite of the inevitable accidental drops. The device is impervious to dust and water, and its exit window is scratch-resistant and recessed for the highest level of durability. As a result, you avoid unnecessary equipment downtime or expensive equipment replacement costs.

Low total cost of ownership (TCO)

In addition to enhancing productivity, the Symbol LS3578-ER offers a low TCO. The industrial-strength construction maximizes the scanner's working life, and multiple on-board interfaces provide true plug-and-play simplicity with your host system today and tomorrow. Support for Remote Scanner Management (RSM) enables you to discover, provision and upgrade devices from a central remote location, dramatically reducing management time and costs.

And since even the most rugged devices require a support plan, a full complement of Enterprise Mobility Services are available to help you protect your investment and maintain peak performance.
