SYMBOL DS9208

OMNI-DIRECTIONAL HANDS-FREE PRESENTATION IMAGERS

Whether you need to scan printed bar codes on paper labels or mobile bar codes on the screen of a mobile phone, with the DS9208, you’ll be ready. You get the versatility to scan any 1D or 2D bar code — from the printed labels in retail that identify product and pricing at the register to mobile coupons, mobile gift and loyalty cards, boarding passes and even theater tickets. And the DS9208 provides all the features you need to keep your workers productive: industry-leading scanning speed; true point-and-shoot scanning simplicity — no need to align bar code and scanner; and hands-free and handheld flexibility.

DS9208

BOOST CUSTOMER SERVICE, LOYALTY AND REVENUES WITH MOBILE BAR CODES

Convenience is driving your customers to store boarding passes, event tickets, mobile gift and loyalty cards as well as mobile coupons on their cell phones, where they are always available and easy to find — unlike their physical counterparts. But if you can’t scan the mobile bar codes, convenience turns into a hassle that could result in a lost customer. With the DS9208, you are ready to complete the mobile bar code transaction chain, able to scan virtually any mobile bar code on any type of display — protecting service levels and customer loyalty.

 

A GO ANYWHERE DESIGN AND TINY FOOTPRINT

Maybe your retail store has a trendy decor. Or maybe your counter space is extremely limited. The DS9208 sports a new sleek contemporary design that is at home in either environment. And with the most compact footprint in this class, the DS9208 can fit in the most space constrained areas — from the POS in a boutique to the ticket window at a train station.

 

A SMART INVESTMENT AND A LOW TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP (TCO)

The DS9208 not only helps you make money, it helps you save money. The device is so intuitive that training — and training-related costs — are virtually eliminated. Right out of the box, the DS9208 can read the most common 1D and 2D bar codes on a wide variety of surfaces — from paper labels to cell phone displays. Integrated Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) functionality eliminates the need to purchase and manage a standalone EAS system. 

FEATURES

Scans 1D, 2D and PDF417 bar codes on paper, mobile phones and computer displays

Scan virtually any bar code on any medium; supports the technology your customers are embracing — mobile bar codes

 

New small footprint

Most compact device in its class, fits in the most space constrained areas, yet offers flexibility of a much larger scanner — the large high-mounted exit window enables scanning of even taller items

 

New sleek design

Perfect in the most design conscious environments

 

Handheld and hands-free modes

Dual mode functionality saves time; keeps lines moving and minimizes wait times; eliminates the need to lift heavy items, reducing the opportunity for injury

 

Picklist mode

Select and scan a single bar code from a bar code menu or “picklist” — ideal for items that are too small for bar code labels such as nuts and bolts in a hardware store to tiny cosmetic brushes

 

Driver’s license parsing (optional)

Captures the information you specify from driver’s licenses to enable fast auto-population of loyalty and credit card applications, increasing enrollment

 

Multi-code mode

Allows simultaneous scanning of a group of bar codes and reports only the selected bar code(s) in a pre-selected order.

 

Industry-first spherical exit window

Improves scanning performance by minimizing stray light and reducing reflections to the imaging sensor

 

Dual LEDs plus programmable beeper volume, frequency and duration

Protects productivity in noisy environments, such as theaters, airports and restaurants by providing both visual and audible confirmation of successful scans; convenient side trigger allows users to adjust beeper volume on-the fly

 

Omnidirectional scanning

Eliminates the need to align bar code and scanner

 

Lightweight ergonomic sure grip design

A secure grip helps prevent drops when utilized in handheld mode

 

Supports all common interfaces

Easy integration with your existing technology environment; easily migrate to new hosts

 

5 ft./1.5 m drop spec and recessed exit window

Increased durability: can endure drops; prevents nicks and scratches on the exit window that could degrade performance

 

Integrated EAS support (optional)

Eliminates the need to purchase and maintain an additional system at the register; simplifies the checkout processes; eliminates missed tags, erroneous alarms and embarrassed customers

 

Integrated adjustable stand

Eliminates the need to purchase and manage separate accessories

 

Compatible with 123Scan2 and Remote Scanner Management (RSM)

Reduces management time and cost, from initial configuration to day-to-day management
