Reads damaged 1D bar codes for maximum
industrial productivity
The rugged Symbol LS3408-FZ handheld scanner
from Motorola features fuzzy logic technology for
fast and accurate reading of damaged, dirty and
poorly printed one-dimensional (1D) bar codes
typically found in industrial environments. In the
yard, warehouse, distribution center, manufacturing
plant or retail store, the Symbol LS3408-FZ
handheld scanner offers superior performance,
reliability and user-friendly ergonomics to improve
productivity. Multiple on-board interfaces ensure
flexible plug-and- play host connectivity.
Advanced data capture technology
for tough environments
As innovative as it is rugged, the Symbol
LS3408-FZ delivers the ergonomic and operational
features for scan intensive industrial applications.
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. For
applications requiring quick access and convenient
storage, the Symbol LS3408-FZ features a built-in
metal hook for attachment to a pulley. Two large
LED-enhancing windows and extra loud 80 decibel
(db) beeper are strategically placed on the scanner
to ensure that decode feedback is clearly visible and
audible to users.
Capturing mission-critical information
the smart way
The standard range Symbol LS3408-FZ is designed
specifically for industrial applications. When you
choose the Symbol LS3408-FZ, you receive the added
assurance of purchasing from Motorola — a company
with proven advanced data capture capabilities and
millions of scanner installations worldwide.
