Let us tell you more
about the DS4308-XD

  • Scan any barcode on any medium

    Capture virtually every 1D, 2D and PDF417 barcode printed on paper labels as well as plastic and metal electronic sub-components, such as PCB boards, memory chips and direct marks printed on non-reflective surfaces.

  • Advanced technology for unsurpassed performance

    Our PRZM Intelligent Imaging technology resets the bar for 2D imaging by improving decode performance and “snappiness”. And with the high resolution optical lens, the DS4308-XD can read very tiny dense codes faster and closer — including codes a half inch or less at near contact.

  • Largest "sweet spot" for scanning simplicity

    The DS4308-XD decode range lets your users scan virtually any barcode type at almost any density nearer and farther than other scanners in its class. The result? The can’t-miss scanning you need to keep your production line moving.

Designed for the production line


Not only does the DS4308-XD scan all the barcodes on your production line, it’s designed for the production line environment. You get a durable design that ensures reliable operation, despite the inevitable drops to the concrete floor. Flexible feedback modes ensure users know instantly when a scan is successful, even on the noisy production line — choose from haptic feedback (vibration) or the adjustable beeper volume and frequency tone. Unsurpassed aiming technology offers a crisp and bright aiming dot for first-time every time accurate aim.
