shock protection, providing durability that can be counted on. These
powerful features reduce downtime and keep maintenance costs to a minimum.
The Symbol LS2208 is engineered for nonstop, daily heavy usage and has
been tested to withstand multiple 5' drops to concrete. The patented
single board construction eliminates a common point of failure, the
inter-connection between multiple boards, and the liquid polymer scan
element delivers integral shock protection to further ensure reliable
operation. Scratch-resistant tempered glass helps preserve barcode scanning
accuracy. Integrated multiple interfaces, universal cable compatibility
and support for emerging symbologies provide the investment protection.
The Symbol LS2208 Barcode Scanner is the replacement model for the
popular Symbol Cobra LS 1902 Laser Barcode Scanner. Laser scanners are
the most common type of hand-held barcode scanner and are better at
scanning barcodes from a distance than CCD barcode scanners.

Lab Test Results:
The IDAutomation technical staff found this scanner very easy to
operate was surprisingly pleased with its light weight. In terms of
laser-focusing ability and performance, it easily outperformed other
CCD scanners priced below $200. The laser scanning beam is very small
and bright, which makes it easy to scan small barcodes. This scanner
dependably and easily read IDAutomation's
Code 39 barcode
font printed at 6 points and
Code 128 barcode
font printed at 8 points. Overall, this is the best laser barcode
scanner at this price.
