Cordless, Bluetooth Enabled Scanners for the Harshest Environments

LS3578 Rugged Cordless Scanner Series
& Benefits
Integrated Bluetooth® Technology
• The LS3578 series cordless scanners provide reliable and secure wireless data transmission between the scanner and host; including Psion Teklogix Vehicle Mount and
Hand held computers
• Integrated Bluetooth eliminates need for base station and cable and offers lower TCO
Wide Scanning Range
Reduces Worker Fatigue and
Increases Productivity
• LS3578-ER scans items as far as 45 feet and as close as 4 inches
• Bright laser diode (both models) ensures precise aiming at
long ranges
Cordless, Bluetooth
Enabled Scanners for the
Harshest Environments
The LS3578 series of Bluetooth®-enabled, rugged scanners
offers cordless laser barcode scanning to meet a wide range of
Industrial application requirements. Convenient Bluetooth®
wireless technology delivers superior, secure and reliable
scanning anywhere in the workplace to help boost
productivity and profitability while reducing Total Cost of
High Performance Scanners with
Fuzzy Logic Decode
• LS3578-FZ features fuzzy logic
technology for accurate and
fast reading of all 1D barcodes
including poorly printed, damaged,
dirty and low contrast barcodes
• Also supports reduced space
Cordless Scanning
Offers True Mobility and Increases
Productivity and Efficiency
• Cordless option allows for
unrestricted barcode scanning
and reduces downtime that
typically results from equipment
• Provides real time, mobile barcode data collection
scanning technology for reading damaged, poor quality or
Essential Ruggedness
Withstands everyday use in the most
rugged environments
• Withstands drops from 6.5 feet to polished concrete
• Includes an IP65 rating, protecting against dust and impervious to water sprayed from
all directions.
• Ergonomic design delivers optimal comfort during long shifts

environments. Finally, both models are ergonomically designed
Ownership (TCO). The LS3578-ER provides the greatest
scanning range of any available rugged scanner, scanning
items from as close as 4 inches (10 cm) to as far away as
45 feet (13.7 m) while the LS3578-FZ features fuzzy logic
for optimal ease of use during long shifts and are built to
withstand everyday use in the most demanding environments.
