Cordless Barcode Scanners

  Zebra Symbol LS4278 Bluetooth Cordless Barcode Scanner - Expect Outstanding Scanning Performance!

The Zebra Symbol LS4278 cordless barcode scanner is designed to deliver exceptional scanning performance. Users can scan objects at any angle - the innovative multi-line rastering scan pattern eliminates the need for exact aim and positioning of the scanner. The laser line moves vertically during scanning, allowing accurate capture of even the smallest, stacked and poorly printed bar codes on the first scan. And with superior motion tolerance, users no longer need pause between scans, further increasing productivity.

A new level of durability — and a lower total cost of ownership.

The Zebra Symbol LS4278 Bluetooth cordless barcode scanner and cradle are designed to withstand all day every day use, from drops to spills, with features that deliver maximum uptime and investment protection. 

The LS4278 scanner’s patented single board construction eliminates the most common point of failure — the interconnection between multiple boards. Even if the scanner is accidentally dropped, a five-foot (1.5m) drop specification ensures continuous reliable operation. 

The Zebra Symbol LS4278 cordless barcode scanner and cradle offer industrial charging contacts that eliminate wear when cradling the device, providing a reliable charging connection through hundreds of thousands of insertions - other common charging techniques show wear between 5,000 to 10,000 insertions. Drain points are designed into the cradle to protect sensitive internal electronics from accidental liquid spills. Built-in enterprise durability combines with Zebra’s services to deliver a low total cost of ownership. Zebra’s comprehensive services are available to assist in rapid deployment as well as provide the ongoing support you need to maintain peak performance — and achieve maximum uptime and value.

Business Challenge


You run a business — such as a chain of retail stores — where a small increase in individual employee productivity adds up to significant cost savings. The Zebra Symbol LS4278 cordless barcode scanner enables the cashier to scan quickly and efficiently without being tethered to a cable – moving from behind the counter when necessary to scan items out of reach.
Processes slow down when your workers must take extra time to re-scan item bar codes with stacked RSS symbols or manually enter item data when bar codes are faded or damaged. Equipped with a multi-line rastering scan pattern, the Zebra Symbol LS4278 cordless barcode scanner accurately reads stacked RSS symbols and damaged or low-contrast bar codes on the first pass, minimizing the need for manual data entry.
You need a scanner that will withstand all day, every day usage.


The Zebra Symbol LS4278 cordless barcode scanner’s single board construction and industrial charging contacts, which are rated to 250,000+ insertions, are uniquely designed to provide users with the highest level of uptime.
To get the most value from your investment, you want scanners capable of meeting both immediate and longer term business requirements


The Zebra Symbol LS4278 cordless barcode scanner’s multiple on-board interfaces and universal cables ensure you’ll be able to use your scanner with different hosts, while its support for RSS bar codes provides compatibility with emerging symbologies. And, since it’s Remote Scanner Management (RSM) ready, you can efficiently upgrade devices from a central remote location 
You need a way to scan large heavy items without losing time or risking injury from reorienting or lifting these products. The Zebra Symbol LS4278 cordless barcode scanner offers wireless freedom to enable workers to move about the workspace to scan large heavy items as well as check for missed items, saving time, reducing shrinkage and helping prevent liability due to injury.
