Zebra - LI4278
Cordless Bar Code Reader

The Zebra LI4278 takes 1D bar code scanning to the next level, allowing workers to scan faster and farther cordless with a barcode reader that is a durable, future-proof device, that delivers an outstanding total cost of ownership solution. Workers can move within a 50 ft./15 m radius to scan items and the elimination of hazardous cables creates a safer work environment.

Allowing workers to scan faster and farther capture virtually any 1D bar code including the typical bar codes that are printed on paper labels, electronic bar codes displayed on the screen of a mobile phone, tablet or computer allows retailers to easily process loyalty cards, mobile coupons and more, as well as the high density (HD) bar codes commonly used in electronic component manufacturing.

From cashiers moving around the register to scan large, heavy items and check for missed items, to healthcare workers double checking that the right patient is receiving the right medication, integrated Bluetooth provides reliable and secure wireless transmission of data between the scanner and your host. Productivity is improved, revenues are protected and potential liability due to injury from lifting heavy objects is reduced.
