Your store represents your brand. You take pride in its design. The ambiance it creates is a big part of your customer’s experience, and you’ve worked hard to make sure they feel it the moment they walk through your doors. With the DS4800 Series, you can extend that customer experience right to your POS. This innovative bar code scanner offers style without compromise, marrying impressive design with the same great reliability, functionality and manageability you expect from Zebra.

Ergonomics and style

Designing the DS4800 Series with human factors in mind allowed us to combine the sophistication and strength of an arc with a grip and trigger position that maximize scanning comfort.

High performance scanning meets premium design

The DS4800 Series offers the best of both worlds — scanning capability and chic consumer styling. The DS4800 Series will not only impress your shoppers, it will keep lines moving at the POS. It can capture any 1-D and 2-D bar code printed on a paper label or displayed on the screen of a shopper’s mobile phone.


Order a custom design that will complement your décor and promote your brand — the cover can be printed with a pattern or a solid colour along with your logo. In addition, you can create your own unique scan tone.

Flexible handheld and hands-free operation

Specially designed to complement the DS4800 Series and your environment, the optional Intellistand enables automatic switching between presentation and handheld modes.

Innovations that take the scanning experience to the next level

The traditional mechanical trigger is replaced with a modern capacitive touch trigger, complete with haptic feedback. Your cashiers can choose their preferred trigger action — a quick tap, press or swipe of a finger or thumb. Flexible decode feedback ensures the DS4800 Series will integrate seamlessly into your environment while remaining easy to use. Instead of the traditional beeptone that signifies a successful scan, you can choose from vibrations, visual feedback and a library of melodic tones that will complement your environment.

Maximum uptime for a low TCO

Our industry leading all-inclusive affordable service plans help keep your DS4800 Series scanners in the hands of your workforce, practically every minute of every day. Comprehensive Coverage protects your scanners from the unexpected, significantly reducing unforeseen repair expenses with protection that starts the moment you purchase the device. And Service from the Start Advance Exchange Support adds next-business-day advance replacement of devices that require repair.

The style you want. The enterprise reliability and functionality you need.
