8 March 2019
|There’s no doubt that the best-in-class LI2208 linear imager delivers unparalleled performance, every time. Millions of individuals around the world from both small and large businesses choose to use the scanner in their daily working life and it’s no surprise. The next generation in 1D scanning, the LI2208 provides the same reliability and ergonomics of Zebra's most popular scanner, the LS2208, with enhanced features that let you scan more types of barcodes at a greater distance. This all results in its resounding success. |
|The scanner is primarily used in retail and hospitality industries for point-of-sale scanning, paper and mobile barcodes, event registrations and production line. It’s both affordable and rugged, an important combination when finding the right scanner for your business to use. The rugged nature of the scanner ensures that it has a 6ft drop spec and an environmental seal which protects against dust as well as some moisture. Meanwhile, the scanner has a very impressive range – it can scan average sized barcodes from approximately 3ft. || |
|One of the key reasons that the LI2208 series is so successful is because of its superior performance when scanning both printed and electronic/mobile barcodes. The scanner works even when used to scan a barcode off a dim or scratched smartphone screen. This makes it a versatile scanner, an important quality in this modern age. The series captures virtually all 1D barcodes on any surface. |
| ||Setting up a new scanner can be time consuming and frustrating. The LI2208 relieves this stress - the scanner comes with incredibly easy deployment – simply point and scan right out of the box. This means that no training is required. 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 123Scan2and SMS. |
The scanner comes in two colours, Twilight Black or Nova White, and comes either with or without a stand. Removing the scanner from the stand moves the scanner to trigger mode, allowing you to press the trigger in order to capture the barcode rather than auto-capture.
From the retail POS to shipping/receiving and hotel check-in, the LI2208 allows your workers to better meet the needs of your business.
