  • Capture DPM, 1D/2D and Wide 1D Barcodes

    The DS3600-DPA delivers the ultimate in scanning performance and versatility. Capture direct part marks regardless of size, surface, contrast, density or type – including challenging dot peen, chemical or laser etch, ink, inkjet mold, cast or thermal spray marks. And with the same scanner, workers can capture virtually any 1D or 2D barcode, including 4-inch wide 1D barcodes found on pick lists, carton labels and packages.

  • Ultra-Rugged Design

    The warehouse and manufacturing floor are as tough as it gets. That’s why we created a new product category — the ultra-rugged industrial scanner. These freezer-ready corded and cordless models are built to survive a 10 ft./3.0 m drop to concrete and are the only scanners in this class that are dust-tight, spray proof and waterproof to IP68, with an IP65-sealed cradle for a complete rugged cordless solution.

  • Unrivaled Manageability

    With our complimentary industry-best tools, managing these scanners couldn’t be easier. You can remotely configure and upgrade your scanners, format data properly for instant transmission into your business applications, monitor battery statistics for your cordless models and more.
