Zebra DS3578 Industrial Barcode Reader


Improve business efficiency in your harshest industrial environments with the Zebra DS3578 Barcode Reader Series. Digital imaging technology on the Zebra DS3578 allows workers to capture virtually any bar code with extreme speed and accuracy.


Three models are available in the Zebra DS3578 barcode scanner series: DS3578-SR: 1-D/2-D barcodes DS3578-HD: 1-D/2-D barcodes; optimized to capture very small, high-density 2-D barcodes DS3578-DP: 1-D/2-D barcodes; DPM marks; IUID support.


When a shipment arrives damaged, a picture is worth a thousand words. With the press of a trigger, workers can capture a photo and automatically append it to the shipment record. The image is wirelessly transferred to the cradle and on to your host PC, providing indisputable evidence of damage and streamlining returns processing.


With integrated Bluetooth® on the Zebra DS3578 Industrial Barcode Reader, there is no cord between the scanner and the host, so your employees can move freely throughout your work environment.  Productivity, efficiency and even worker safety is improved.  Plus, downtime from cable breakdowns (a common point of failure in handheld devices used in industrial environments) is eliminated.
