Horizontal Slot Scanner

Exceptional scanning performance keeps customer lines moving. The advanced LS7808 horizontal slot scanner from Zebra delivers exceptionally high first-pass read rates for faster checkout times — and better customer service. The LS7808 represents the latest development in our leadership in designing bar code scanners and our pioneering work in horizontal slot scanner technologies. The omni-directional scan pattern reads the bar code regardless of orientation, eliminating the need to precisely align products to the scanner. Advanced software algorithms reconstruct poorly printed and damaged codes, further increasing performance and speeding customers through the point of sale. Since the LS7808 easily fits into preexisting counter cut-outs for the LS5800, upgrading is easy and cost-effective. And the hands-free design and large scan window enable your cashiers to stay focused on your customers, instead of the products they are scanning, enabling high levels of personalized service.

LS7808 Handheld Scanner

Maximize cashier productivity

Optimized for demanding, high-turnover retail environments, the LS7808 is easy to install and easy to use. Even inexperienced cashiers can begin scanning quickly due to the flush mounted, in-counter design and large omni-directional scanning window. Intuitive scanning requires little training; just move the products past the window and go. Large, bulky items in the cart can be scanned quickly and safely using an optional secondary handheld scanner, minimizing the need for customers or cashiers to lift heavy items onto the counter. And integrated Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) functionality further increases cashier productivity, enabling cashiers to scan once to simultaneously capture the bar code and deactivate the EAS tag.


Built-in investment protection

We’ve laid the groundwork for the future with broad support for 1D bar code symbologies and host systems, providing the investment protection you need to ensure that the LS7808 can be used in your environment today — as well as tomorrow. Onboard support for multiple interfaces, a standard feature, allows you to use your scanner with many different types of POS hosts for seamless integration now, as well as painless migration to new systems in the future. Comprehensive support for 1D bar codes — including Reduced Space Symbology (RSS), ideal for perishable items such as produce and meat as well as store coupons — ensures the ability to scan virtually any product now, and in the future.
