ZEBRA LI4278
GENERAL PURPOSE CORDLESS
LINEAR IMAGER
THE NEXT GENERATION IN 1-D SCANNING
The LI4278 takes 1-D bar code scanning to the next level,
allowing workers to scan faster and farther. Workers can capture
virtually any 1-D bar code — including the typical bar codes that
are printed on paper labels; electronic bar codes displayed on the
screen of a mobile phone, tablet or computer that allows retailers
to easily process loyalty cards, mobile coupons and more; and the
high density (HD) bar codes commonly used in electronic
component manufacturing. 100 percent UPC bar codes can be
captured from near contact to over 30 in./76.2 cm away, while
200% UPC codes can be scanned at 55 in./139.7 cm away. Since
bar codes can be captured at extreme angles, scanning is easier
than ever, so workers spend less time maneuvering the scanner
and more time on task. And an optional cradle that enables
presentation mode gives your workers the flexibililty to use the
scanner in handheld and hands-free modes.
CORDLESS FREEDOM
Bluetooth® frees workers from cords, allowing cashiers to easily
scan items inside and outside of the cash wrap. In addition,
Bluetooth v2.1 with EDR provides better encryption for improved
security; better wireless performance; better energy management
to preserve power for a full shift and easy pairing with the host
device.

BUILT FOR ALL DAY EVERYDAY USE
A patent pending single circuit board improves reliability by
eliminating interconnections. Superior battery power management
delivers the largest number of scans per battery charge to support
scan intensive applications. You can use it in dusty and wet
environments. The scan line is easy to see outdoors in bright
sunlight as well as indoors in dim lighting. It can survive drops to
concrete. And both cradles can handle over a quarter million
insertions.
COST EFFECTIVE UPGRADE PATH
The LI4278 provides a positive return on investment by utilizing
the same existing cradles and accessories as its cousins, the
LS4278 and DS6878. Current investments are preserved, yet you
can easily migrate to the latest in scanning technology.
MAXIMUM UPTIME FOR A LOW TCO
Remote management tools combine with industry leading allinclusive affordable service plans to keep devices in the hands of
your workforce practically every minute of every working day,
Service from the Start Advance Exchange Support provides nextbusiness-day replacement of devices that require repair. Built-in
Comprehensive Coverage protects your scanners from the
unexpected, significantly reducing unforeseen repair expenses
and delivering service peace of mind from the moment you
purchase the device.
