Symbol LS3578-ER
Rugged, cordless scanner with integrated Bluetooth
Wide working range:
4 in. (10 cm) to 45 ft. (13.7 m)
Allows workers to scan items
at varying distances without
having to move, reducing
fatigue and speeding task
Integrated Bluetooth
Class 2 v1.2 (Serial Port
and HID Profiles with
authentication and security)
Cordless scanning with
secure wireless data
Cordless scanning
Enables real-time bar code
data collection unrestricted by
a cable, reducing repairs from
cable failure
Rugged design withstands
multiple 6.5-ft. (2-m) drops
to concrete
Ensures maximum reliability
with less downtime resulting
from accidental drops
Scan bar codes over a wide range of distances
The Symbol LS3578-ER rugged, cordless scanner
provides the greatest working range of any
available rugged scanner, allowing employees
to scan items from as close as 4 inches/10 cm
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 Symbol
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 Motorola’s rugged
VC5090 Vehicle-Fixed Mount Mobile Computer.
Cordless freedom for improved productivity
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.
Rugged design to maximize uptime
As rugged as it is innovative, the Symbol LS3578-ER
is designed for scan-intensive industrial applications
in the harshest operating conditions. 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.
Low total cost of ownership (TCO)
In addition to enhancing productivity, the Symbol
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.
