The Zebra DS6878-DL cordless imager offers the complete data capture functionality required to streamline and error-proof everyday processes in an ergonomic, comfortable and easy-to-use design. This single device can capture all common bar codes (1D, 2D and PDF417) on labels as well as on mobile phone displays. The on-board Driver’s License parsing agent enables the instant decoding of the bar coded information on driver’s licenses to support a wide variety of value-added applications.


The optional hands-free presentation cradle enables additional advanced capabilities, including: the ability to capture signatures, documents and photographs; optical character recognition (OCR) to capture the text in documents; and MICR to capture the numeric information on the bottom of checks. Electronic recordkeeping is enriched and checks can be instantly converted to electronic debit transactions, reducing the time and cost associated with processing paper checks as well as the risk of check fraud. Add easy remote management, business-class durability, future proofing and world-class support and you have a scanner that not only offers the advanced data capture features your users need, but also the extraordinary total cost of ownership (TCO) required to easily justify this technology investment.


Built on Zebra’s revolutionary SE4500 scan engine, the DS6878-DL breaks the barriers that have long separated 1D laser scanning & 2D imaging technologies, delivering an industry first: 1D laser scanning performance on 2D bar codes. Businesses no longer need to sacrifice speed and scanning quality for bar code scanning diversity. Exceptional motion tolerance enables extraordinary scanning speed on all bar codes. The scanner can capture even poor quality and damaged bar codes, virtually eliminating exceptions. The easy to use device offers an intuitive aiming pattern and full omni-directional scanning, which eliminates the need to precisely align bar code and imager. And the patent-pending fast-pulse illumination consistently delivers the light required to capture the bar code, enabling use in virtually any type of lighting. The result is increased throughput and productivity.


The ability to roam up to 300 ft./100 m away from a host device offers cable-free convenience, improving safety and allowing the extension of advanced data capture in more applications and industries. The latest Bluetooth® technology, V2.1 with EDR, improves security and power management, offering superior protection for the wireless data traveling between scanner and host and helping to ensure ample power for full shift use.


Built to survive everyday all day use in enterprise environments. Zebra’s best-in-class drop specification of 6 ft./1.8 m drops to concrete. The result is dependable operation, despite the inevitable everyday drops, bumps and spills.
