Superior Performance, Advanced Features Symbol Technologies, the world leader
in bar code data management technology, developed the LS 5700 and LS 5800
specifically for the demanding requirements of point-of-sale scanning. The LS
5700 delivers maximum performance for on-counter applications, wh ile the LS
5800 model is ideal for in-counter installation. Both models offer more
advanced features than comparably priced hands-free scanners:
High first-pass read rate - quickly scans low-contrast, poorly printed and/or
damaged bar codes.
Large, dense scanning field - reduces the need to orient merchandise to capture
and scan bar codes, thereby increasing user comfort while speeding up the
Code stitching - applied logic for deciphering and rebuilding damaged and
truncated bar codes, increasing first-pass read rate and throughput.
Symbol hand-held laser scanner support - essential for retail environments with
oversized or heavy merchandise.
Synapse "smart cable," a Symbol exclusive - a simple cable change connects the
LS 5700/LS 5800 to most popular host systems, eliminating the need for costly
and/or time consuming scanner modification when migrating host
Optional Integrated Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) - scans bar codes and
deactivates security tags in a single action, saving operator time while
enhancing store security and optimizing valuable POS counter space.
For your on-counter scanning at the point of sale, Symbol's LS 5700 offers
high-speed "swipe" scanning, virtually eliminating the need to lift
A Profile to Fit Your Profile
The LS 5700 and LS 5800 have been designed with your valuable check-out space
in mind: both models boast the smallest footprint possible, while maintaining
large scan fields for the greatest ease of use.
The LS 5700's scan field has been optimized for high-speed "swipe" scanning
over the broadest possible working range - from contact to 8"/20 cm. It reads
items flush to the counter, eliminating the need to lift merchandise, reducing
fatigue and speeding t he check-out process. Only 3.8"/8.9 cm deep, the LS 5700
requires minimum space on your countertop while delivering maximum scanning
The in-counter LS 5800 has improved optics for reading bar codes presented
perpendicular or at an angle to the scan window. Cashiers save both time and
motion by simply passing merchandise over the countertop: the need to tilt
bottles, cans or other items toward the scanner window is virtually eliminated.
Window options are available to meet the needs of your grocery, soft goods,
low-volume or high-capacity retail environment. What's more, the LS 5800's thin
3"/7.6 cm profile is perfect for seated operato rs requiring added leg
For items too bulky or heavy to scan on the sales counter, both the LS 5700 and
LS 5800 feature the backup flexibility of hand-held scanner support.
