SYMBOL LS3578-ER
RUGGED, CORDLESS SCANNER WITH INTEGRATED BLUETOOTH
SCAN BAR CODES OVER A WIDE RANGE OF DISTANCES
The LS3578-ER rugged, cordless scanner provides the greatest working range of any available rugged scanner,
allowing employees to scan items from as close as .25 inches /.64cm to as far away as 45 feet /13.7 m. It also allows
employees to quickly switch from reading bar codes on inventory to capturing smaller symbologies on bar code
menus and pick lists. In the yard, warehouse, distribution center, manufacturing plant or retail store, the LS3578-ER
offers superior performance and reliability as well as a user-friendly form factor that helps ensure comfortable use
over long shifts. Plus, integrated Bluetooth provides reliable and secure wireless data transmission between the
scanner and host, including Zebra's rugged VC5090 Vehicle-Fixed Mount Mobile Computer.
Allows workers to scan items
at varying distance without
having to move, reducing
fatigue and speeding task
completion
Integrated Bluetooth®
Class 2 v1.2 (Serial
Port and HID Profiles
with authentication
and security)
Cordless scanning with
secure wireless data
transmission
CORDLESS FREEDOM FOR IMPROVED PRODUCTIVITY
Cordless scanning
With no cord between the scanner and host, employees can move freely throughout their work environment,
increasing productivity and efficiency while keeping supply chain inventory up to date at all times. Plus, having no cord
reduces downtime from cable breakdowns ' a common point of failure in handheld devices used in industrial facilities.
Enables real-time bar code
data collection unrestricted
by a cable, reducing repairs
from cable failure
LOW TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP (TCO)
In addition to enhancing productivity, the LS3578-ER offers a low TCO. The industrial-strength construction
maximizes the scanner's working life, and multiple on-board interfaces provide true plug-and-play simplicity with your
host system today and tomorrow. Support for Remote Scanner Management (RSM) enables you to discover,
provision and upgrade devices from a central remote location, dramatically reducing management time and costs.
And since even the most rugged devices require a support plan, a full complement of Enterprise Mobility Services are
available to help you protect your investment and maintain peak performance.
