 BOHEMIA, N.Y., June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Symbol Technologies Inc.

Th kit, developed for easy installation by even non-technical users, includes the Symbol LS 2080 hand-held laser bar code scanner integrated with a PC keyboard wedge interface, cable accessories, power supply, multimount stand and multilanguage user manual.
 The PC keyboard wedge interface allows the LS 2080 to connect to a PC without a serial port. The LS 2080 sends scanned data to the PC as emulated keystrokes.

 "The WK 2080 is an industry first in combining in a complete and handy package the components a small business requires to get up and running with Symbol's high-performance laser scanning," said Raymond R. Martino, president and chief operating officer, Symbol Technologies. "This area of our business is best addressed by an increasingly important segment of our sales channel, the reseller and distributor channel. They're finding the WK 2080 particularly attractive."
 Packaged in a sturdy and attractive 14-inch x 10.5-inch x 4.5-inch carton for applications such as retail point of sale, document tracking, material/tool tracking and services such as library checkout, the WK 2080 supports IBM PC/XT and IBM PC/AT class computers and IBM PS/2 models. Fully compatible with U.S. and standard European keyboards, it requires no communications port, and no tools are needed for installation. With user-programmable features, the WK 2080 scans all popular bar codes and has a working range of 0 to 20 inches.
