ZEBRA DS9808

NEXT-GENERATION HYBRID PRESENTATION IMAGER

INNOVATIVE COMBINATION SCANNER OFFERS THE BEST OF ALL WORLDS

Achieve a new level of productivity and throughput at the checkout stand with the DS9808 from Zebra. This groundbreaking scanner is designed from the inside out to bring a new level of versatility, functionality and performance to the checkout stand. Outside, the DS9808 offers an extraordinary one-of-a-kind hybrid form factor that marries a solid base with our advanced handheld ergonomics. The result? Superior comfort and ease of use in both handheld and hands-free scanning modes. The integrated base requires very little real estate at the point of sale — ideal for space constrained checkout stands. And inside, the DS9808 offers the very latest in scanning technology, delivering record swipe speeds for 1-D and 2-D bar codes, as well as the ability to capture images and signatures.

FLEXIBLE SCANNING RANGE

When it comes to scanning distance, the DS9808 sets a new level of flexibility. The standard range (SR) model can scan up to 10.5 in./26.7 cm away in handheld mode, while the long range (LR) model can scan up to 18 in./45.7 cm away — ideal when merchandise is too heavy or bulky to easily move out of the customer’s cart. Additionally, the hands-free decode range in both models can be adjusted to meet your needs — for example, to match the EAS deactivation range or to prevent the inadvertent scanning of items in space constricted cash-wraps.

THE PERFORMANCE YOU NEED TO MAXIMIZE PRODUCTIVITY AND VALUE

The DS9808 has what it takes to keep your checkout lines moving, improving both customer satisfaction and sales. A swipe speed programmable up to 100 in./ 254 cm per second provides rapid fire scanning — a must in busy environments. With omnidirectional scanning, there is no need to take the time to orient bar code and scanner. And since the DS9808 can capture 1-D and 2-D bar codes on paper labels as well as mobile phone displays, your checkers no longer need to manually enter UPC codes. The ergonomically positioned trigger provides easy and comfortable scanning in handheld mode. A specially designed laser-generated aiming pattern offers a clear and bright field of view even in bright sunlight, ensuring first time accurate aim. The extra loud beeper provides audible verification of an accurate scan in even the busiest retail environments. And a single swipe can simultaneously scan the price and deactivate an EAS tag, further boosting productivity at the checkout stand — and preventing those erroneous alarms that embarrass your customers and waste security staff time.

REDUCE COSTS AND INCREASE SALES WITH THE APPLICATIONS OF TODAY… AND TOMORROW

The adaptable DS9808 is at home in a wide variety of retail operations. For countries that utilize a PDF417 bar code on a national ID card or drivers’ license, an embedded parsing agent can decode identification information with very little effort , allowing retailers to use that information in a wide range of applications to improve productivity, customer service, customer retention and sales. For example, a quick scan can instantly and accurately auto-populate a credit application, so customers don’t have to take the time to fill out application forms. In the pharmacy, a quick scan captures a customer’s information to help meet compliance regulations for the purchase of certain over-the-counter and prescription medications. Retailers who sell items with age restrictions can prevent unlawful transactions with a quick scan of a driver’s license for automatic age verification. At the returns desk, a quick scan helps prevent fraudulent returns, even if you do not require receipts. The DS9808 also decodes 1-D and 2-D bar codes from mobile phone displays, so you can roll out mobile coupons, mobile payment, mobile boarding passes, digital loyalty and other emerging mobile commerce applications. And support for an optional RFID module* enables your retail operation to embrace the benefits of RFID in the future.

DURABLE DESIGN FOR A LOW TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP

The DS9808 is built to withstand the demanding retail environment — and our toughness tests prove it. With a 5 ft./1.5 m drop to concrete drop specification, the scanner delivers dependable performance, in spite of the inevitable everyday drops and bumps.

RAPID RETURN ON INVESTMENT (ROI)

With the flexible DS9808, there is no need to purchase multiple devices to support different types of data capture in your enterprise. No matter what applications you need now or in the future, the powerful comprehensive feature set will meet your needs. You enjoy the functionality of an image capture device, a bar code scanner, an EAS tag deactivator and an RFID reader* — all in a single device. With fewer devices to purchase and manage, your capital and operational costs are significantly reduced. Compatibility with Remote Scanner Management (RSM) supports remote configuration, deployment and day-to-day management of the devices. And for true service peace of mind, our Service from the Start Advance Exchange Support program offers next-business-day device replacement to keep the scanners in the hands of your employees. Your DS9808 will also be protected from the unexpected with built-in Comprehensive Coverage, which covers internal and external components damaged through accidental breakage. The result is an extraordinary lifecycle, extraordinary uptime — and a truly outstanding ROI.
