Scanning with your Motorola LS3408


Do not hold the Motorola LS 3408 scanner directly over the bar code. Laser light reflecting directly back into the scanner from the bar code is known as specular reflection. This specular reflection can make decoding difficult.

Tilt the scanner up to 65° forward or back to achieve a successful decode. Simple practice quickly shows what tolerances to work within.


Scanning in Motorola LS 3408 Hand-Held Mode

Install and program the Motorola LS 3408 scanner. Aim the scanner at the bar code and press the scan button.


Ensure that the scan line crosses every every bar and space of the symbol.


Upon successful decode, the scanner beeps, and the LED turns green.

Scanning in Presentation Mode

The optional IntelliStand adds greater flexibility to scanning operation. When you insert the scanner into the stand’s “cup,” the scanner’s built-in sensor places the scanner in presentation (hands-free) mode. When you remove the Motorola LS 3408 scanner from the stand, it operates in its normal hand-held mode.

Connect the Motorola LS 3408 scanner to a host and insert it into the IntelliStand by placing the front of the scanner into the stands cup. To scan the bar code, present it and ensure the scan line crosses every bar and space of the symbol.


Upon successful decode, the scanner beeps and the LED turns green.
