SYMBOL LS3578-A&E

RUGGED, CORDLESS SCANNER WITH INTEGRATED BLUETOOTH

SCAN BAR CODES OVER A WIDE RANGE OF DISTANCES

The LS3578-A&E 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 centre, manufacturing plant or retail store, the LS3578-A&E 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.

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.

LOW TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP (TCO)

In addition to enhancing productivity, the LS3578-A&E 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.
