ZEBRA DS4308-HC

PROTECT PATIENT HEALTH WITH NEXT GENERATION BAR CODE SCANNING

IMPROVE PATIENT SAFETY AND INCREASE CAREGIVER PRODUCTIVITY WITH NEXT GENERATION SCANNING.

Bar code scanning at patient bedside is crucial in preventing medication and specimen mixups — two of the potentially deadliest errors in a hospital. But scanning bar codes in a hospital can be a challenge. There are many types of bar codes including traditional paper-based, those displayed on an electronic screen, codes printed on curved surfaces, high density codes printed On very small items and bar codes in all types of conditions — from smudged to scratched and poorly printed. Now, you can give your healthcare workers the ability to scan them all with the ds4308-hc. This feature-rich next generation 2d imager resets the bar for scanning performance, scanning range, versatility and ease-of-use. The result? The priceless peace of mind that the right patient received the right medication and the right test results, every time. The ds4308-hc — the ideal companion for laptops on workstation-on-wheels (wows) and other types of carts in your hospital.

PRZM Intelligent Imaging technology for next generation performance

Resets the bar for 2D imaging by improving decode performance and snappiness, ensuring the virtually instant capture of bar codes required in the mission critical world of healthcare.

Megapixel sensor and advanced algorithms enable first time capture of any bar code, on any medium — in virtually any condition

Give your healthcare workers true peace of mind with the ability to scan virtually any 1D, 2D or PDF417 bar code, as well as the many challenging bar codes in healthcare — including the tiny dense codes wrapped around the curved surface of a vial to bar codes that are stained or smudged.

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

A decode range allows healthcare workers to scan any bar code type at any density nearer and farther than any other scanners in its class, making scanning truly second nature. And with omni-directional scanning,healthcare workers never need to waste valuable time aligning bar code and scanner.

Withstands constant disinfecting

IP42 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.

Unsurpassed aiming technology

The crisp and bright aiming dot has the reach and brightness needed to ensure the fast capture of data.

Durable design for superior uptime

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

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.

Superior out-of-box experience

The DS4308-HC is up and running almost instantly. 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.

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 patients and healthcare workers.

GIVE YOUR HEALTHCARE WORKERS THE POWER TO CAPTURE ANY BAR CODE, ON ANY MEDIUM, IN ANY CONDITION — AND MAKE YOUR HOSPITAL A SAFER PLACE.
