Zebra / Symbol Technologies Scanners
In October of 2014, Zebra Technologies, a well-known leader in the barcode printer arena, moved to expand their mobile hardware solutions to include mobile data capture devices for the retail, hospitality, transportation, warehousing, manufacturing, healthcare and government industries. To do this, they acquired Motorola Solutions’ Enterprise business which included Symbol Technologies, another long-standing leader in the barcode industry. Symbol is now a subsidiary of Zebra and continues to offer an extensive line of bar code data capture devices including both lightweight and rugged products that use advanced laser technology and offers a variety of options to meet your every scanning need, for hand-held or hands-free operation, and cabled or cableless data collection.
EIM is pleased to offer a variety of easy-to-use Symbol scanners to fit all types of common scanning applications and budgets. When choosing a scanner, some important features to consider include whether you want a hand-held or hands-free device, what the scanning distance is going to be, how much mobility you will want, what connectivity is needed for your computer system and if there are any special environmental conditions to consider. We have kept our scanner selection deliberately simple to make it easier to find a model to fit your needs, but if you don’t see what you are looking for, it doesn’t mean we don’t have it.
