Flexible Host Connectivity
The LS 4008i ensures connectivity to virtually any host with universal cabling and multiple onboard interfaces, including USB, RS-232C, IBM468X/9X, Keyboard Wedge, Wand and Synapse. Advanced Data Formatting (ADF) capabilities allow scanned data to be modified prior to transfer, ensuring compatibility with the application on the host system.
Symbol knows that ergonomics are just as important as scanner performance—so the rugged LS 4008i is packed with features designed to enhance operability. The LS 4008i is lightweight to maximize user comfort, with a handle optimized to fit comfortably into hands of all sizes. The patented two-finger trigger reduces finger fatigue—even over extended periods of use. A hands-free Intellistand enables the convenience of presentation scanning for increased throughput. LS 4008i scanners feature a large, bright two-color LED plus a beeper with adjustable volume for audible confirmation of good decodes. An over molded rubber "chin" and "foot" achieve dual functionality of absorbing shock and raising the scanner off the counter for easy pickup and placement.
The Mark of a Top Performer—Application Versatility
The LS 4008i offers a complete scanning and on-board connectivity set, making it the perfect scanner for a wide variety of retail and commercial applications—from small neighborhood businesses to major retailers and corporations. LS 4008i scanners can be used anywhere where efficiency needs to be improved through the use of barcode data capture. In retail environments, the LS 4008i is ideal for applications such as point-of-sale scanning, price markdowns and verifications, and in-store inventory management for warehouse clubs, mass merchandisers, and department, grocery, and specialty stores. In warehouse and manufacturing environments, the LS 4008i improves productivity and accuracy in shipping and receiving by streamlining inventory management, assembly lines and document tracking processes. And the healthcare industry benefits from more efficient tracking of patient information, management of medical inventory, and more.
