LI4278 Barcode Scanner


This product replaces the older Symbol LS4278.

The Motorola LI4278 barcode scanner offers aggressive linear imaging with fantastic wireless technology, excellent for retail or light industrial barcode scanning.

Symbol's* first foray into linear imaging, the LI4278 provides fast, aggressive scanning for a wide variety of uses. The barcode scanner can read retail barcodes from up to 31 inches away, all but eliminating searching for the scanning "sweet spot" or stretching to get in a proper reading range. With the ability to scan barcodes as dense as 3 mil, the LI4278 is just at home in manufacturing environments as retail, and its superior scanning speed and motion tolerance hold up to high demand, high volume scanning.

The Bluetooth v2.1 Class 2 radio on the LI4278 promotes tremendous freedom, allowing your employees to scan products without having to haul them to the PC. With an effective range of 330 feet, the LI4278 is a great fit for virtually any retail or warehouse scanning environment. And Bluetooth's EDR ensures the barcode scanner sends data quickly, saving you time and money. Data is also encrypted, providing peace of mind when scanning personal data.

Designed for maximum uptime and a low total cost of operation, the LI4278 has been built to withstand rough retail and light industrial abuse. The gasket-sealed body is protected from dust and can be sprayed clean as necessary, and the reinforced body is protected from drops of up to 6-feet to concrete. Shipping with a 3-year warranty, with optional Zebra One Care comprehensive coverage plans available, the Symbol* LI4278 barcode scanner will provide any business with years of great service.

Symbol LI4278 Reviews

POSGuys Rating:

This is one of the most durable cordless barcode scanners we've ever used. It held up to being run over by an SUV! The scanning range is fantastic for retail use and the radio range lets you send data from about a football field away. If you need a cordless scanner and are worried about damage, the LI4278 is a fantastic choice.

LI4278 Wireless Linear Imager Video

Hi, it's Camille with POSGuys.com. Today we're taking a look at Motorola's LI4278 linear imager. This is one of my personal favorites. It has a good scanning range, it's wireless, it has a great radio range of about 330 feet. We did some durability testing on it which you may or may not have seen, we'll link you the video, and it is extremely durable, extremely well suited for retail, and light-industrial uses.

The LI4278 can scan from mobile phones. [beeping] It doesn't have any problem. They do have to be 1D barcodes though, so it will not read QR codes. It'll read all standard barcodes printed out. Really quickly we'll just put it through a scratch test to see how aggressive. So I'm just gonna draw two lines through that barcode. [beep] And it still scans. Couple more lines. [beep] You can see the red indicator of where you're scanning, and then the green light when you get a positive read. And then I'm just gonna just try and destroy this barcode. [beep] And it's still scanning just fine , so it's a nice aggressive scanner.

The specs say it can scan a standard barcode from 1 to 31 inches, so if you're starting at about 1 inches there. This might be a little bit smaller than a standard barcode that I'm using right now. We're having some difficulty at about 31 inches is my guess.

So this is the final product after our durability testing. You can see that the lens is undamaged as it was recessed into the scanner and it never actually took any impacts directly to the lens. You have your superficial damage on the housing. You have your charging contact points which are undamaged because they're also recessed back into the scanner to avoid any impacts that might damage them and prevent your scanner from being able to charge. Some of the more serious damage, caused by the SUV, for example, is this crack that runs through the housing. There's that crack. But as you can see the scanner, the indicator beam is still functioning. The speakers, they went quiet for a while, are now back at full strength, which you'll hear in just a second. And though this is not paired, I can still scan. [beeping]

Just a quick look at the base for the LI4278. You can charge it in a landscape orientation like that. Just standard, no mounting, really easy. Or, alternatively, you can mount it on the wall by putting that piece in there to hold it in place, and then if you look at this little diagram back here, you just need to use a phillips-head screwdriver and turn this to the wall-mounted direction, and then it will hold it in place when you put it on the wall. I think.

The LI4278 is great for retail. It has the wireless functionality so its easy to scan. It is also great for if the employee happens to drop it, it's gonna probably be just fine. We also suggest it for light-industrial use because it has an IP54 seal to protect against dust and moisture. Um, it's available with USB, RS-232 serial, or PS/2 keyboard wedge interfaces, has a 3-year manufacturers warranty, and is available in black or white. If you'd like to purchase the LI4278, please contact us at POSGuys.com.
