LS 9208
HandsFree Omnidirectional Projection Scanner
Let Your Store Profit from Today's Most
Advanced Omnidirectional Projection
The LS 9208 Omnidirectional Scanner from Symbol
Technologies combines hands-free operation with a highperformance, "can’t miss" rastering 100-line omnidirectional
scan pattern that reads bar codes on the first try–even truncated
or poorly printed symbols. The LS 9208 also features a single
scan line for reading bar code menus and pick lists.
With its small footprint, the LS 9208 takes up very little
valuable counter space and the variable mounting options
provide unmatched POS adaptability to meet the requirements
of your store's check out configurations. When you need to read
bar codes on bulky items that are hard to bring to a fixed scanner,
the LS 9208 easily converts to hand-held mode.
The high-performance features of the LS 9208 include the
EAS checkpoint deactivation option that saves precious POS
space by co-locating the deactivation antenna with the scanner.
A Perfect Fit for Many Retail Applications
The LS 9208 is ideal for a variety of retail operations–even in major
department stores. In fact, any store that needs fast, accurate checkout
and improved customer service will benefit from the efficient and
flexible hands-free scanning of the LS 9208. In addition, this scanner
is equally at home in many receiving areas or offices that need highperformance scanning in a compact, reliable device. Multiple onboard interfaces, universal cabling and the 123Scan utility provide
flexible host connectivity and easy set up and configuration to
futureproof your investment.

scanner, contact any of our convenient offices listed on the back panel
