A New Standard in Worker Comfort and Productivity

Smallest enterprise wearable scanner in the market

When your workers are scanning hundreds or thousands of items per shift, user comfort is critical. The RS2100 is practically weightless at just a little over one ounce (31 g), minimizing fatigue over long shifts. At only 0.57 in./14.6 mm high, the RS2100 features the lowest profile on the market for effortless picking — even in the tightest spaces.

Best-in-class “bare palm” gripping capability

The innovative back of hand mount leaves the entire palm free — unlike other back of hand scanners that have a cumbersome strap across the palm or cover the palm completely. With fully bare palms, workers get a better and more secure grip on the items they’re handling — boosting productivity and reducing breakage.

The Easiest Wearable Experience for Your Workforce

Ready to use right out of the box

Workers will intuitively know how to wear the RS2100. The RS2100 mount comfortably fits all hand sizes, so there’s no need to order and manage different mounting sizes; you simply choose right- or left-hand versions. And the battery is embedded, eliminating the need to manage separate batteries.

No more lost scanners

If your business struggles with lost and misplaced wearable scanners, Device Tracker1 is the answer you’ve been waiting for. This optional Mobility DNA tool makes it easy to pinpoint the location of a missing RS2100, whether it was left behind in a break room or on a warehouse shelf. And you can create a virtual tether to prevent workers from leaving their wearable scanner or mobile computer behind. No more time-consuming searches, workflow interruptions or replacement costs.

Fast and flawless barcode capture

Our high performance scan engine with PRZM Intelligent Imaging technology enables lightning fast capture of virtually any 1D/2D barcode, even if they are damaged, poorly printed or dirty. The wider field of view creates a bigger sweet spot to make it even easier to scan any size barcode — large or small.

When the job calls for affordable, ergonomic and effortless wearable scanning, the RS2100 delivers.

Durable for all-day, every-day use

Drop it on the floor. Splash water on it. Use it in a dusty backroom or out on the receiving dock. With IP54 sealing and a 6 ft./1.8 m to concrete drop specification, the RS2100 is engineered for durability.

Flexible notifications for easy scan confirmation

Workers instantly know when a scan was successful with a choice of notifications: LED lights that are visible in the line of sight, an audible beeper and/or haptic vibration.

Ideal for packing stations

Zebra’s Bluetooth Adapter allows the Bluetooth-enabled RS2100 to connect via USB to a PC with a large screen that makes it easy for packers to view needed data. Up to seven (7) RS2100 scanners can be paired simultaneously to a non-mobile host, eliminating the need to purchase a mobile computer for each worker.

Compatible with Zebra mobile computers and consumer devices

The RS2100 works with Zebra’s handheld and wearable mobile computers, as well as Apple and Android tablets and smartphones — and even PCs. The result? No matter what types of devices you have deployed today, or what types of devices you plan to purchase tomorrow, the RS2100 provides a cost-effective path to add hands-free scanning to your existing workflows.

Enterprise-level service at the right price

Zebra OneCare Essential and Select help eliminate unexpected repair costs and keeps RS2100 scanners up and a fraction of the cost of a single uncovered repair. You get unmatched, direct-from-Zebra support including: coverage for accidental damage and normal wear and tear, live-agent technical support and numerous options that allow you to tailor your support plan to meet all of your service needs.

The Zebra-only Difference — Zebra DNA

Scanner configuration made easy

With 123Scan, an intuitive configuration wizard simplifies every step of deployment, from configuration to data formatting and firmware updates. Even first-time users can get scanners up and running quickly. And the ability to format barcode data for your application makes it easy to integrate RS2100 scanners into any workflow.

Prevent Bluetooth interference with Wi-Fi™ Friendly Mode

Wi-Fi Friendly Mode ensures that your cordless RS2100 scanners only operate on channels that are not shared with your Wi-Fi network — protecting your Wi-Fi environment from potential interference and workforce productivity.

Split-second device pairing

Pair the RS2100 with supported NFC-enabled devices with a quick tap. Even new workers are up and running in seconds, without support. Don’t have an NFC-enabled host? No problem. With Zebra’s Scan-to-Connect utility, you can connect the RS2100 to a Bluetooth-enabled PC, tablet or smartphone in an instant. Simply open the Scan-to-Connect utility on the mobile device and scan the pairing barcode that appears on screen with the RS2100.
