Symbol DS4308 Handheld Scanner

A NEW LEVEL OF PERFORMANCE and MORE VERSATILITY allow capture of any barcode

If you’re looking for extraordinary flexibility and performance in your handheld scanner, the next-generation scanning technology in the DS4308 delivers. Its truly extraordinary range does the job of two scanners, allowing you to scan nearer and farther than any other scanner in this class. Your workers can scan virtually any barcode.

The DS4308 does it all — 1D or 2D, electronic or printed on paper labels or plastic cards, even if the barcode is dirty, scratched or poorly printed. With PRZM Intelligent Imaging inside, your workers can capture barcodes as fast as they can pull the scan trigger. And that means no more Point-of-Sale exceptions that can turn into longer lines, longer wait times and lost sales. The DS4308 — a new class of scanner for a new world of barcodes.
