The Symbol LS4278 combines excellent scanning performance and advanced ergonomics to provide the best value in a lightweight
laser scanner. Whether used as a hand-held scanner or in hands-free mode in a stand, the scanner ensures comfort and ease of use
for extended periods of time.
In addition to single-line laser scanning, the scanner supports multi-line rastering. Multi-line rastering allows the scanner to capture
stacked GS1 DataBar codes and increases angular tolerances, minimizing product orientation and hand movements. Multi-line
rastering also allows the scanner to read poor quality bar codes. For more information about scanning modes and stacked GS1
DataBar codes, see
Scan Pattern on page 5-10
The scanner does not currently support PDF-417 bar codes and its variants.
