Put advanced bar code scanning in the pockets of your healthcare workers to improve patient safety and the patient experience.
Bar code scanning at patient bedside is crucial in preventing deadly errors in medication administration and specimen collection. Now, you can keep enterprise-class bar code capture at the fingertips of every nurse and lab technician with the CS4070-HC. This little wireless enterprise class bar code scanner is designed for the mission critical world of the healthcare worker. Small enough to be easily carried at all times, it can be tucked in a pocket or worn on a lanyard. Superior scanning technology means your healthcare workers can dependably scan any electronic or printed 1-D or 2-D bar code in any condition in the time it takes to press the scan button, whenever and wherever required. With the press of the dedicated pairing button, this flexible Bluetooth scanner is easily paired with in-room computers and workstations-on-wheels (WOWs) — or even tablets. Add its rugged disinfectant-ready design that prevents the spread of germs, full shift power, user-selectable scanning feedback and superior ergonomics, and the CS4070-HC is the ideal individual scanning companion for your healthcare workers.

PRZM Intelligent Imaging technology for next generation bar code scanning performance — only from Zebra

Delivers laser-style speed and accuracy for first-time every time split second capture of 1D and 2D printed bar codes in virtually any condition — even if they are dirty, scratched or poorly printed.

Scan virtually any bar code on any medium

Scans 1-D, 2-D and PDF417 bar codes displayed on a screen or printed on paper labels, as well as the tiny bar codes printed on individual medication doses and bar codes on curved, reflective surfaces, such as vials, syringes, IV bags, suppositories and patient wristbands.

Superior ergonomics

One of the smallest and lightest devices in its class, the CS4070-HC can be tucked in a pocket or worn around the neck on a lanyard. Grooves guide the hand to the most comfortable placement and provide a secure grip, and the placement of trigger buttons enables effortless scanning with any size hand.

Connect with one simple scan

Healthcare workers can connect the CS4070-HC to a workstation-on-wheels (WOW) or thin client by simply scanning a barcode on the CS4070-HC Bluetooth dongle accessory.

Withstands constant disinfecting

IP52 sealing and a specially designed disinfectant-ready plastic housing allow safe wipe-down with a wide variety of harsh chemicals to help prevent the spread of germs.

Durable design — built to be dropped

Operates reliably after 5 ft./1.2 m drops and 500 consecutive “tumbles” from 1.64 ft./0.5 m.

One million+ scans for superior value

Since healthcare workers need to scan frequently, the scan button is tested to handle over a million presses.

Full-shift power — period

In the mission-critical world of healthcare, users count on full-shift operation. That’s why the field replaceable battery can be easily changed on-the-go and is designed to last an entire busy 12-hour shift, with an LED indicator that alerts the user when a battery change is needed.

Day and night ‘do-not-disturb’ modes

Healthcare workers can choose to mix and match the decode feedback that is right for the moment: visual (green light/red light), haptic (vibration) and an audible tone.

Point-and-shoot scanning simplicity

Bar code capture is easy. An extraordinarily wide working range combined with omnidirectional scanning eliminates the need to align scanner and bar code — no need to disturb a sleeping patient to capture the bar code on a wristband.

With Service from the Start Advance Exchange with Comprehensive Coverage, your CS4070-HC scanners are covered — period.

This optional service plan keeps devices up, running and in like-new condition with coverage for accidental damage and everyday wear-and-tear — all for just pennies a day.
