Motorola Solutions Expands Digital Imager Portfolio for Healthcare Applications

This press release was issued by Motorola Solutions Enterprise business prior to its acquisition by Zebra Technologies on Oct. 27, 2014. 

ORLANDO, Fla. – HIMSS 2011 (Booth # 5171) – Feb. 21, 2011 – Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI) today announced its newest advanced data capture solution for healthcare – the DS4208-HC corded imager. The easy-to-use DS4208-HC imager can help prevent errors and streamline processes in almost every area of a healthcare facility - from admitting and medication administration to specimen collection, inventory, and discharge. Specifically designed to withstand the rigors of everyday use in demanding healthcare environments, the lightweight and ergonomic DS4208-HC can also help prevent the spread of dangerous and deadly illnesses with its disinfectant-ready design.


  • With the ability to scan virtually any 1D or 2D barcode, the corded DS4208-HC offers the versatility to capture information from wristbands for patient identification to pharmaceuticals, blood bags, and syringes for medication administration, and specimens for tracking.
  • The new DS4208-HC offers IP43 sealing, in combination with a specially designed plastic housing, to create a disinfectant-ready design that allows safe wipe-downs and sanitizing with bleach, alcohol, soap and water — without harming the housing or the sensitive scanning components. And with its ability to withstand best-in-class six-foot drops to concrete, the new digital imager ensures reliable operation.
  • The DS4208-HC provides laser-like performance and can capture even the most poorly printed or damaged bar codes with ease. In addition, omni-directional scanning eliminates the need to precisely align bar code and imager for fast, easy and comfortable scanning.
  • To help keep the DS4208-HC scanners up and running at peak performance, Motorola recommends Service from the Start Advance Exchange Support. This exceptional service minimizes downtime with next-business-day replacement of devices that require repair. The DS4208-HC will also be protected from the unexpected with built-in Comprehensive Coverage, which includes normal wear and tear, as well as coverage for internal and external components damaged through accidental breakage.
