Motorola LS4278 Cordless General Purpose Bar Code Scanner

The innovative Motorola LS4278 Bluetooth®-enabled cordless bar code scanner delivers superior data capture anywhere in the workplace. Its multi-line rastering pattern eliminates the need for exact aim, enabling scanning within a 15 metre (50-feet) radius and allowing operator extra room to move.

This laser hand-held device excels in retail, healthcare or light industrial environments, boosting productivity and profitability. The LS4278 supersedes the very reliable LS4071/4074 Series. We still have clients using the LS4071 since 2000.
