Zebra DS3608-ER20003VZWW Barcode Scanner Overview

Unstoppable performance for extended range 1D/2D barcode scanning

Every day, workers in your warehouse scan thousands of barcodes to ensure order accuracy and on-time delivery. Their productivity depends on the quality of the scanner you put in their hands. If your workers need to capture 1D and 2D barcodes near and far, with the corded DS3608-ER and cordless DS3678-ER scanner, you can give them the best - unmatched rugged design, unmatched scanning performance and unrivaled manageability. The advanced imager delivers lightning-fast capture of any 1D or 2D barcode displayed on a screen or printed on a label in virtually any condition, nearer and farther than any scanner in this class - from 3 in./7.6 cm to as far as 70 ft./21.4 m away. The ultra-rugged design is practically indestructible - ideal for punishing environments. The DS3608-ER/DS3678-ER couldn't be easier and less time-consuming to deploy and manage. And when it comes to cordless technology, the DS3678-ER is loaded with Zebra-only features that put it in a class of its own. The DS3608-ER/DS3678-ER - the unstoppable performance you need to maximize workforce productivity and throughput in your operations.

Superior scanning range
The advanced imager reads 1D and 2D barcodes printed on a label up to 60 percent closer and 35 percent farther than similar models in this class, with an extraordinary scanning range from 3 in. to 70 ft. (7.6 cm to 21.4 m). Now, one scanner can easily read barcodes on a picklist in hand and on the uppermost shelves of your warehouse racks, as well as extra-wide codes just a hands-length away - even if they are under shrinkwrap, damaged, dirty or poorly printed. The result? Workers can capture barcodes as fast as they can pull the trigger for first-time every time scanning - and extraordinary productivity.

Ultra-rugged - the most indestructible design in its class
The DS3608-ER/DS3678-ER is our most rugged scanner yet, with the highest drop, tumble and sealing specification in its class. The DS3608-ER/DS3678-ER is built to survive an 8 ft./2.4 m drop to concrete - 23 percent more durable than any other scanner in this class. The DS3608-ER/DS3678-ER operates reliably after 5,000 tumbles, simulating the real-world tumbling that occurs with a drop. Both models are dust proof, spray proof and waterproof to IP67 - they can be sprayed down with jetting water and even submersed in water.
