LS7808 Presentation Barcode Scanners

The Symbol LS7808 has reached end of life. It has been replaced by the Symbol LS7708.

The Symbol LS7808 barcode scanner gives you the high-speed, in-counter performance you need at high value retailers such as department stores or hardware stores. With a durable design and Symbol's advanced scanning technology, the LS7808 will handle virtually any scanning scenario.

The LS7808 mounts into a counter or checkstand, giving you fast omnidirectional scanning without taking up vital counterspace. It reads 1D barcodes from contact to up to 7 inches away, and the 1,800 scans per second scanning speed ensures even quickly-moving barcodes are read.

In-counter scanners are known for their resilience, and the LS7808 is no exception. Available with your choice of Tin Oxide or Sapphire glass, the scanning window is remarkably scratch resistant and durable. The 5,500 RPM prism motor provides smooth operation for the life of the device. Shipping with a 3-year warranty standard, the Symbol LS7808 barcode scanner will give any high volume retailer many years of great service.
