Scan Bar Codes On Mobile Phones, Tablets And More With Motorola Solutions' New LI2208 Corded Linear Imager


New generation of 1D scanning incorporates the latest technology for linear scanners

BlueStar, a leading global distributor of ADC, Mobility, Point-of-Sale, RFID, Digital Signage, and Security technology solutions, is pleased to introduce the next generation in 1D scanning from Motorola Solutions, the LI2208 corded linear imager. Following in the footsteps of Motorola's best-selling LS2208 barcode scanner, the new LI2208 captures any and all bar codes printed and electronic, including codes on mobile phone and tablet displays.

The LI2208 offers a wider working range, scanning easily twice the distance of existing linear models, and superior motion tolerance for continuous scanning with no pauses. It's built to withstand everyday enterprise usage, with IP42 sealing for dusty and damp environments. Users can choose between handheld and presentation mode, and with the optional Intellistand, the LI2208 can automatically sense and scan with no trigger action needed.

"Customers in retail, manufacturing, and hospitality are all looking for ways to incorporate mobile devices into their businesses," said Dan Mitchell, Motorola ADC Initiative Lead for BlueStar. "With the LI2208, resellers can take advantage of the latest bar code technology on digital displays, now with the same solid form factor of the LS2208."

"Offering a superior out-of-the-box experience, the LI2208 is extremely easy to set up and use - making it an ideal fit for retailers and other organizations operating warehouses or light manufacturing processes with high employee turnover rates and seasonal staffing," said John Britts, senior director of Data Capture Solutions, Motorola Solutions. "With the introduction of the LI2208 corded handheld scanner, businesses can rely on Motorola for all of their advanced data capture needs including linear imaging, 2D imaging and laser scanning solutions."

Motorola also provides simple end-to-end scanner management with its 123Scan and Scanner Management Services. Users can now stage devices quickly with a complete audit trail; access scanner statistics remotely and even set parameters and update firmware. Ideal for applications in retail, manufacturing, education and hospitality, the LI2208 continues the LS2208's legacy of quality and reliability and is now available from BlueStar.
