Radio Transmitters
The cordless scanner cradle acts as a stand, host communication interface, and
charger for the LS4278 cordless scanner. It can sit on a desktop or be mounted on a
There are two configurations of the cradle:
STB4278-C0001WR/STB4278-C0007WR (white/twilight black): charging cradle with
radio for desk/wall mounting
• STB4208-C0001R/STB4208-C0007R (white/twilight black): charging cradle only for
desk/wall mounting.
The STB4278 cradle receives data from the scanner via a Bluetooth radio, and sends
that data to the host through an attached cable. The cradle also charges the scanner’s
internal battery pack when the scanner is inserted. The scanner can be charged from an
external power supply or using a powered host cable.
This document provides basic instructions on setting up and using the cradle. Unless
otherwise noted, “cradle” refers to both configurations of the cradle. Any discussion of
transmission of information refers specifically to the STB4278 cradle.
The following equipment may be needed:
Power supply for desk/wall mounting configuration (p/n 50-14001-001R).
Mounting bracket for vertical mount configuration.
Save the shipping container for storing or shipping. Inspect all equipment for damage. If
anything is damaged or missing, call an authorized Customer Support Representative

Pairing registers a scanner to the cradle and the scanner and cradle can exchange
information. The STB4278 operates in two mode: scanner-to-cradle and multi scannerto-cradle. In scanner-to-cradle mode, the scanner is paired to the cradle either by
insertion into the cradle (if pairing on insertion is enabled), or by scanning the pairing bar
code. In multi scanner-to-cradle mode, up to three scanners can be paired to one
cradle. A multipoint bar code must be scanned to activate this feature.

Reference Guide.
To charge the scanner battery, place the scanner in the cradle (see Inserting the
Scanner in the Cradle). The battery begins charging when the scanner LED indicator
starts flashing green. A complete charge of a fully discharged battery can take up to
three hours using external power and up to five hours using non-external cable power.
To insert the scanner in the cradle:
1. Insert the scanner top first. When the cradle is mounted in a vertical position, ensure
the convertable mount hook on the front of the cradle is inserted with the hook facing
up. If not, remove and reverse the hook so that it is in position to secure the scanner
in place.
When powered up, the cradle LED is always green. Refer to the LS4278 Quick
Reference Guide for scanner LED indications.
Using a Host Interface to Supply Power
Some hosts can provide power to the cradle via the host interface, instead of an
external power supply.
If the cradle does not work after following the previous procedures:
Check the system power.
Check for loose cable connections.
Check that the scanner is inserted properly in the cradle.
Check that the host settings are correct and the cradle is connected to the appropriate
port on the host.
