Symbol LS 5700 Scanner

Symbol LS 5700 Scanner

The LS 5700's wide range and omnidirectional read angle make this minislot reader perfect for any handsfree point of sale station. The LS 5700's laser has a high read rate on the first pass, resulting in faster processing of data and customer orders. The LS 5700 also features the ability to connect a second, hand held reader for use with large or awkward items. Each model comes with a user's manual.
LS 5700 and LS 5800 In-counter and On-counter Mini-Slot Scanners

Fast, Aggressive Mini-Slot Scanners Increase Productivity and Improve Customer Satisfaction

The LS 5700 and LS 5800 omni-directional mini-slot scanners from Symbol Technologies provide unsurpassed throughput and a high first-pass read for hands-free point-of-sale retail laser scanning. The expanded working range and aggressive performance combine for fast, accurate scanning with minimal operator effort. The result is quicker, more productive check-out operations—and happier customers.

Superior Performance, Advanced Features

Ideal for the demanding requirements of point-of-sale scanning, the LS 5700 delivers maximum performance for on-counter applications, and the LS 5800 model for in-counter installation. Both models offer more advanced features than comparably priced handsfree scanners, and include support for Symbol hand-held scanners—essential for retail environments with oversized or heavy merchandise.

In addition, both models feature Code stitching, an applied logic for deciphering and rebuilding damaged and truncated bar codes, which increases first-pass read rate and ensures high throughput. And the LS 5700 and LS 5800 deliver additional value through overall ease of use, which reduces training time and expense.

A Profile to Fit Your POS Profile

The LS 5700 and LS 5800 have been designed with your valuable check-out space in mind: both models boast the smallest footprint possible, while maintaining large scan fields for the greatest ease of use.

The scan field for the 5700 has been optimized for high-speed "swipe" scanning over the broadest possible working range—from contact to 8 in./20 cm. Items can be read flush to the counter, eliminating the need to lift merchandise. Fatigue is reduced—and the check-out process is faster. And the small footprint requires minimum space on your countertop while delivering maximum scanning performance.

The in-counter LS 5800 has improved optics for reading bar codes presented perpendicular or at an angle to the scan window. Cashiers save both time and motion by simply passing merchandise over the countertop: the need to tilt bottles, cans or other items toward the scanner window is virtually eliminated. Window options are available to meet the needs of your grocery, soft goods, low-volume or high-capacity retail environment. And the low 3 in./7.6 cm profile is perfect for operators who are seated and require added leg space.

Benefits Consumers, Employees and Retailers

The LS 5700 /LS 5800's unsurpassed combination of performance and features benefits customers, employees, and management.

This aggressive, cost-effective mini-slot scanner offers a choice of models to meet any countertop requirement. They join Symbol's high-performance scanner product line designed especially for retailers. Symbol Technologies is the world leader in bar code driven data management systems, with millions of scanners and terminals installed.
