Zebra DS3508 Industrial Barcode Readers

High performance that speeds productivity

With the Zebra DS3508 Series of industrial barcode scanner, you benefit from a scanning solution designed specifically for fast-paced production environments. The CMOS image sensors allow the accurate capture and processing of bar codes at a faster pace than the typical digital scanner. The Zebra DS3508 barcode reader series is armed with a powerful 624 MHz microprocessor, capable of decoding 1-D or 2-D bar codes within milliseconds, regardless of size or density. The patent pending fast-pulse illumination and fast sensor shutter speed enable image capture at a full 60 frames per second, delivering outstanding motion tolerance. In addition, the omni-directional scanning functionality allows operators to quickly capture bar codes from any angle, eliminating the need to align bar codes with laser lines. Plus, the Zebra DS3508 scanner series offers the widest working range of any scanner in its class.

Built for industrial environments

As innovative as it is rugged, the Zebra DS3508 industrial barcode reader series delivers the ergonomic and operational features for scan-intensive industrial applications under the harshest operating conditions. The device is designed to perform reliably despite the inevitable bumps and drops even on concrete. An IP65-rated seal makes it impervious to dust and water, and the exit window is scratch-resistant and recessed for the highest level of durability. As a result, enterprises enjoy a low total cost of ownership - employee and device downtime as well as equipment repair and replacement costs are minimized.

In addition, noisy machinery and poor lighting can make it difficult for operators to see or hear scanner feedback to ensure proper completion of scans. The DS3508 Series addresses this challenge with bright LEDs, an adjustable volume beeper and a vibrating pager motor placed in the handle, ensuring that decode feedback is clearly visible and audible to users, saving valuable worker time.
