SYMBOL DS3500-ER SERIES

MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE, PRODUCTIVITY, SCANNING RANGE AND RUGGED DESIGN

RAPIDLY SCAN 1-D AND 2-D BAR CODES AT NEARLY ANY RANGE — FROM NEAR TO FAR

Warehouses in distribution centers and manufacturing plants, warehouse-style retail stores, outdoor lumber yards and pipelines all have one thing in common — the need to scan different types of bar codes across a wide range of distances. The DS3500-ER Series of full range corded and cordless scanners allows you to do just that — capture bar codes from near contact to as far as 30 ft./9.14 m away. With this single device, workers can scan an item in hand or an item on the tallest rack in the warehouse. The need to purchase multiple types of devices to capture different types of bar codes at different distances is eliminated, so you can boost productivity and minimize your investment.

DELIVERING THE ULTIMATE IN SPEED

When it comes to performance, you can expect the same superior scanning experience that has made Zebra the world’s leader in bar code technology. Easily read bar codes under several layers of shrinkwrap — without any impact on read speed. Workers can also hold the trigger down to continuously scan items. It doesn’t matter how well lit an area is — the DS3500-ER Series can read bar codes in darkness or in bright sunlight. And you can easily format the data for easy integration into your existing systems, without costly modification of host software.

BUILT TO LAST IN THE HARSHEST INDUSTRIAL ENVIRONMENTS

With Zebra's maximum rugged specifications, the DS3500-ER Series can handle whatever comes its way during the workday. Indoors and outdoors, you can drop it on concrete, cover it in dust or grease, spray it with high pressure jets of water or expose it to extreme temperatures with the same result — day-in and day-out reliable operation.

NOTES

1. Cradles STB/FLB3508 and STB/FLB3578 are utilized with the DS3578. (The DS3508 doesnot use a cradle; it is tethered to the host.) In addition,STB/FLB3508 is a charge-only cradle with no communication capabilities.
2. Requires an external power supply.
3. Cradle defaults to slow rate charge when an external supply is not used.
