ZEBRA DS4308

ZEBRA DS4308

ANY BAR CODE. A NEW LEVEL OF PERFORMANCE. MORE VERSATILITY.

SCAN ANY 1-D OR 2-D BAR CODE FARTHER AND FASTER WITH NEXT GENERATION SCANNING TECHNOLOGY.
The DS4308 is a feature-rich next generation 2-D imager that resets the bar for scanning performance, scanning range, versatility and ease-of-use. Workers can capture virtually any bar code faster than ever, whether it is displayed on a smartphone, tablet or computer or printed on a label — even if it is scratched, damaged or dirty. Its small and lightweight design offers the ergonomics your workers need for all day comfort in the most scan intensive jobs. A variety of models meet a wide range of business needs — from the Point-of-Sale in a retail store to the light industrial manufacturing production line. Regardless of which model you choose, you get one powerful scanner that does the job of two. The Standard Range (SR) model offers an extraordinary range, eliminating the need to purchase separate standard and extended range scanners. The High Density (HD) model scans standard bar codes as well as the tiny, dense barcodes commonly found on jewelry tags, consumer electronics and electronic components — eliminating the need to purchase separate standard and high density specialty scanners. And driver’s license parsing can be added to either model. The result? An extraordinary feature set and an extraordinary value.

PRZM Intelligent Imaging technology for next generation performance

Resets the bar for 2-D imaging by improving decode performance and snappiness, dramatically improving the user experience, user productivity, throughput and wait times.

Scan any bar code on any medium

Scans 1-D, 2-D and PDF417 bar codes printed on paper labels or displayed on mobile devices or computer screens.

Megapixel sensor for maximum data capture flexibility

Delivers the resolution required for longer-distance scanning, clear photos, sharp signatures and more accurate OCR data.

Largest “sweet spot” for can’t-miss point-and-shoot scanning simplicity

With a decode range that allows users to scan any bar code type at any density nearer and farther than any other scanners in its class, scanning is truly second nature — users just point and shoot.

Omni-directional scanning

Enables true point-and-shoot scanning simplicity by eliminating the need to align bar code and scanner.

Durable design for superior uptime

Built to survive a 6 ft./1.83 m drop to concrete, the DS4308 delivers reliable operation, despite the inevitable everyday drops.

Adjustable beeper volume and frequency tone

You get the flexibility to adjust beeper characteristics for your environment — from a quiet boutique store to a noisy light industrial manufacturing production line.

Superior out-of-box experience

Smart auto-host detect cables automatically determine which interface is attached, eliminating the need to scan numerous configuration bar codes. Over 90 international keyboards are hosted within the scanner for easy setup, all around the world.

Unsurpassed aiming technology

Crisp and bright aiming dot has the reach and brightness needed for long distance scanning - as well as picklist mode.

Easy on the eyes

Thanks to a special LED wavelength and recessed lighting, when a bar code is scanned, the light that is emitted is soft and unobtrusive, preventing eye fatigue and improving the environment for customers and workers.

Complimentary tools simplify and reduce the cost of everyday management

123Scan2 and Scanner Management Service (SMS) work hand-in-hand to reduce management time and cost by automating initial configuration and enabling remote management of your DS4308 scanners.

GET NEXT GENERATION BAR CODE CAPTURE IN YOUR ENTERPRISE WITH THE DS4308.
