Let Us Tell You More About the DS8100 Series

  • Unprecedented performance

    Only the DS8100 Series combines the power of an 800 MHz microprocessor, a high-resolution megapixel sensor and Zebra’s exclusive PRZM technology. With this unique combination of hardware and advanced algorithms, the DS8100 Series instantly captures the most problematic barcodes with lightning speed, including dense, poorly printed, crinkled, faded, distorted, dirty or damaged barcodes and electronic barcodes on smartphones — even when the screen is dimly lit.

  • Innovation beyond the barcode

    A wide range of innovations allows your workers to do much more than scan barcodes one at a time. Simultaneously capture multiple barcodes and transmit only those required in the proper order directly to your application. Utilise two interchangeable power options - PowerPrecision+ battery or a PowerCap. The AutoConfig feature enables you to pair your device to automatically configure it for a new host application and the Remote Diagnostics logging agent feature gives you the information needed for event verification, blockchain traceability and troubleshooting and fleet-wide analysis.

  • Unrivalled Manageability

    Our complimentary tools deliver unrivalled manageability. With visionary visibility into scanning performance and battery metrics, you can spot and correct issues before they impact device uptime, worker productivity and the quality of your customer service. You can control many aspects of your scanners from any Android, iOS and Windows smartphone or tablet, as well as any iOS or Windows PC. You can create a single configuration barcode to customise settings. And you can stage, configure and update firmware on all your DS8100 devices in all of your locations — no user actions required.

Industry's Only Swappable Power Sources

Two interchangeable power options are available to power your device: a PowerPrecision+ battery or a PowerCap™ capacitor. You can swap power options at any time on all DS8100 models, right in your facility, providing the flexibility to meet changing business needs while protecting your original investment. A PowerPrecision+ smart battery powers the DS8178 for over three around-the-clock days of continuous scanning on a single charge. And managing your power sources is easy. Since the PowerPrecision+ battery and PowerCap capacitor can report their model and serial numbers, you’ll always know which power source is in each scanner.
