Symbol LS9208i barcode scanner from Motorola



This hands-free scanner offers a high-performance processor and an innovative 100-line rastering omni-directional scan pattern that enables rapid barcode scanning regardless of the orientation of the product. It also offers the flexibility to switch quickly and easily between hands-free and handheld mode, reducing the need to lift heavy objects and the risk of injury.


Combined with a small footprint that fits easily into the tightest environments and the ability to easily switch to single line mode to read pick lists and barcode menus, the Symbol LS9208i keeps checkout lines moving and customers satisfied.

This device is capable of reading a wide range of barcodes – from 13 mil (100% UPC) to 4 mil (Code 39). The Symbol LS9208i enables streamlining of a variety of everyday processes in retail and other environments. This scanner improves throughput at the checkout counter, instantly deactivates EAS security tags and can even help workers identify a product in the back room.


This barcode scanner can also be used to help meet regulatory requirements by verifying prescriptions and managing the administration associated with certain over-the-counter but controlled substances. Employees can quickly scan badges to track time and attendance. Since there is no need to orient the scanner and the barcode, even patrons in a library can scan books in and out.

The Symbol LS9208i barcode scanner features a small footprint, choice of colours and an optional, adjustable multi-mount stand that is easily adaptable to many point-of-sale environments. Its extra loud beeper (85dBA) helps users ensure that the barcode has been read.
