Let Us Tell You More About the LI2208 Handheld Scanner

  • A Champ on Traditional and Mobile 1D Barcodes

    Many customers have laser technology that cannot read mobile barcodes. With the LI2208, customers can begin reading mobile and electronic barcodes right out of the box, without sacrificing scanning performance. A patented optical design achieves industry leading working range, and since bar codes can be captured at extreme angles, workers spend less time manoeuvring the scanner for increased productivity.

  • Leverages the Wildly Successful LS2208

    The LS2208 is Zebra’s most successful scanner of all time with millions of customers of all sizes choosing the scanner for its performance, excellent reliability and unparalleled ergonomic design. With the LI2208, your customers will enjoy the same ergonomic comfort and durability of the LS2208 (including the patented single circuit board design), while also benefiting from best-in-class linear technology.

  • Superior Out-of-the-Box Experience

    Setting up a new scanner can be time consuming and frustrating. The LI2208's smart auto-host detect cables make deployment easier by automatically detecting the attached interface (USB, RS232, RS485 or keyboard wedge), eliminating the need to scan multiple parameter barcodes. More than 90 international keyboards are supported and the scanner is compatible with 123Scan2 and SMS.
