Zebra DS3500-ER Industrial Barcode Reader


The Zebra DS3500-ER Series of industrial barcode readers allows you to scan different types of bar codes across a wide range of distances - from near contact to as far as 30 feet away. Workers can also hold the trigger down to continuously scan items. It doesn’t matter how well lit an area is either.  The Zebra DS3500-ER reader can read bar codes in darkness or in bright sunlight. Indoors and outdoors, you can drop it on concrete, cover it in dust or grease, spray it with high pressure jets of water or expose it to extreme temperatures with the same result - day-in and day-out reliable operation and continuously obtain the same reliable results.


Warehouses in distribution centers and manufacturing plants, warehouse-style retail stores, outdoor lumber yards and pipelines all have one thing in common, the need to scan different types of bar codes across a wide range of distances. The Zebra DS3500-ER barcode reader series offers a full range industrial barcode scanners that allow you to do just that - capture bar codes from near contact to as far as 30 ft./9.14 m away. With this single device, workers can scan an item in hand or an item on the tallest rack in the warehouse. The need to purchase multiple types of devices to capture different types of bar codes at different distances is eliminated, so you can boost productivity and minimize your investment.


When it comes to performance, you can expect the same superior scanning experience that has made Zebra the world’s leader in bar code technology.
