ZEBRA DS9808-R

NEXT-GENERATION HYBRID PRESENTATION IMAGER WITH INTEGRATED RFID

DEPLOY THE BEST OF ALL WORLDS FOR A TRULY FUTURE-PROOF AND COST- EFFECTIVE POS.

Zebra’s DS9808-R is the first combination 1D/2D bar code scanner and RFID reader and the first combination handheld/hands-free UHF RFID reader. Its revolutionary imaging engine enables the capture of 1D and 2D bar codes as well as images and signatures, with record swipe speeds on both 1D and 2D bar codes. In addition, the read range for RFID tags can be adjusted to suit the environment. For example, the RFID read range in presentation mode can be decreased to prevent inadvertent reading of RFID tags in a nearby cash-wrap, while the range in handheld (triggered) mode can be increased to read RFID tags that are further away. The DS9808-R offers the flexibility to accommodate virtually any type of data capture application, including support for: 1D and 2D paper and mobile bar codes, mobile coupons, mobile loyalty cards, mobile boarding passes, PDF417 bar codes, reading/writing* RFID tags

REALIZE THE BENEFITS OF ITEM-LEVEL RFID WITH THE LAST LINK IN THE RFID CHAIN

The DS9808-R complements Zebra's RFID portfolio, allowing retailers to implement RFID from the receiving dock to the POS. Retailers can realize the benefits of real-time item-level inventory visibility, including: timely re-ordering to eliminate out-of-stocks and associated lost sales, increased inventory turns and reduced inventory carrying costs, real-time trending analysis for better purchasing decisions, timely replenishment of your shelves with minimal human intervention.

RICH BEST-IN-CLASS RFID FUNCTIONALITY AT THE POS

The comprehensive RFID feature set enables retailers to maximize the value of RFID technology in the store. In addition to reading tags to complete purchases, capabilities include: Commission tags on new inventory items and returned goods. Built-in filtering prevents accidental multiple entries of the same tag - Associates will hear a single beep as the tag data is captured and entered into the transaction, just as if a bar code was scanned, providing associates with a familiar and intuitive process that eliminates the need for training. Special RFID data conversion software for on-the-fly translation of the RFID EPC tag data to UPC bar code data. A pilot test or full RFID solution can be implemented quickly, easily and cost-effectively into any existing retail technology environment.

MAXIMUM EASE OF USE FOR MAXIMUM THROUGHPUT

The DS9808-R allows associates to instantly switch scanning modes. Switching from hands-free presentation style scanning to handheld mode is as easy as picking up the device. The unique tri-function trigger design enables retailers to assign up to three specific functionalities in the same trigger. For example, the upper and lower triggers could activate the bar code reader and pressing both triggers together could activate the RFID reader.

MULTIPLE FUNCTIONS ON A SINGLE DEVICE OFFERS RAPID RETURN ON INVESTMENT (ROI)

With the flexible DS9808-R, there is no need to purchase multiple devices to support different types of data capture in your enterprise. The DS9808-R provides the functionality of an RFID reader/writer, an image capture device and a bar code scanner all in a single device. Capital and operational costs are significantly reduced, there are fewer devices to purchase and manage.

*Tag “write” commands are supported via USB only.
