Advanced Data Capture Technology for Tough Environments
As innovative as it is rugged, the LS 3408FZ delivers the ergonomic and operational features for scan intensive industrial applications. The scanners exit window is scratch-resistant and recessed for the highest level of durability and minimal downtime. In fact, the LS 3408FZ even maintained its reliability when subjected to multiple drops in a tumble test conducted in the widely recognized Symbol Industrial Design Labs.

For applications requiring quick access and convenient storage, the LS 3408FZ features a built-in metal hook for attachment to a pulley. Two large LED-enhancing windows and extra loud 80 decibel (db) beeper are strategically placed on the scanner to ensure that decode feedback is clearly visible and audible to users.

Capturing Mission-Critical Information the Smart Way
The standard range LS 3408FZ from Symbol Technologies, the Enterprise Mobility Company, was designed specifically for industrial applications. When you choose the LS 3408FZ, you receive the added assurance of purchasing from Symbol—a company with proven advanced data capture capabilities and millions of scanner installations worldwide.
