2D barcodes have made their way to your Point of Sale POS appearing on everything from the items your customers are purchasing to printed and electronic coupons and loyalty cards. Your 1D scanner cant capture the new 2D codes leading to exceptions that slow down the check-out process and frustrate customers at that key last personal touchpoint in your store. But with the DS2200 Series you can scan it all. You get an affordable 1D2D imager that doesnt compromise performance or features for price

Product Overview


Pre-configured and Ready to Use, Right Out of the Box
Since the default settings are optimized for the majority of scanning applications, you can use the DS2200 Series imager the moment you take it out of the box - no configuration required.

Auto-host Detect Cables
Just plug the DS2200 Series into your Point of Sale (POS) and the auto-host detect cables will automatically identify the interface and connect the imager, simplifying and reducing setup time.

Easy Integration with a Tablet-based POS
The DS2200 Series offers all the features you need to add high-quality scanning to your tablet-based POS. The Micro USB cable provides a low-cost charging alternative to a cradle. And with our simplified app development tools, you can easily configure and update the DS2200 Series right from the tablet.

Deploy Anywhere in the World
With support for 97 international keyboards, the DS2200 Series is easy to deploy all around the world.

Easily Customize Settings with 123Scan
This complementary software tool is so intuitive that even a first time user can easily set up a DS2200 Series imager. The wizard-driven interface makes it easy to embed all settings into a single programming barcode, enabling you to configure your devices with a single scan.

Backwards Compatible with Zebra LS2208 Series Cables
If you use Zebra's 1D LS2208 scanners today, you can use the same universal cables with the DS2200 Series, allowing you to leverage your existing accessory investment to minimize the cost of upgrading to a 1D/2D imager.


Instant Decoding with PRZM Intelligent Imaging
Only from Zebra, PRZM's software decode algorithms for the DS2200 Series deliver superior performance on poor quality barcodes. The result is first-time, every-time scanning to help your workers improve productivity at the checkout counter.

Unsurpassed Scanning Range
Workers can scan barcodes across a wide range (1.23 cm to 36.8 cm), improving checkout speed and reducing training time.

Point-and-shoot Scanning Simplicity
With omni-directional scanning, users never need to line up the imager and the barcode - unlike 1D scanners.

Patent Pending Technology for the Most Intuitive Aiming
The aim line is similar to the 1D scanners you have today, providing your associates with a familiar experience. Additionally, the aim line guides users to scan at the ideal distance from the barcode - especially helpful when capturing wide barcodes.

Easiest Pairing on the Planet
With our industry-first Scan-to-Connect technology, your workers can pair the cordless DS2278 with any Bluetooth enabled PC, tablet or smartphone in a single step.

Fast, Easy and Flexible Charging
Plug the imager directly into the host or any standard wall socket via the Micro USB cable to charge the DS2278 in just an hour. The Presentation Cradle, which provides hands-free scanning, charges the DS2278 in just four hours. The Presentation cradle charges the battery during use, so you can keep the scanner in service during charging. And since the Presentation Cradle doesn't require a separate power supply, there are fewer accessories to purchase and manage.

Unique Direct Decode Indicator Improves Productivity
The illumination on the barcode flashes to indicate a good decode, so workers know instantly if the barcode was captured correctly - regardless of how noisy the environment might be.

On-the-fly Switching Between Handheld and Hands-free Scanning
Regardless of whether your workers are using the corded DS2208 or the cordless DS2278, workers can simply place the imager in its presentation stand to automatically switch to hands-free mode - no change of settings is required.

Guaranteed Full Shift Battery Power
With 14 hours of power, your cordless DS2278 imagers are always available for use - no need to waste time recharging during the business day.


Control Your Scanners from a Smartphone, Tablet or PC
You can easily control the beeper, LED and Symbology settings, display scanned barcode data, access model and serial number information and more from Windows, Android and iOS hosts.

Eliminate Bluetooth Interference with Zebra's Proprietary Wi-Fi Friendly Mode
Ensure that your cordless DS2278 Bluetooth imagers only operate on channels that are not shared with your WLAN, protecting WLAN service levels for your workers and your customers.

A Battery Designed to Last
The long-lasting 2400 mAh Lithium Ion battery in the cordless DS2278 will likely never need to be replaced, reducing total cost of ownership and simplifying everyday management by eliminating the need to purchase and manage a battery pool.

No-cost Tools to Meet Advanced Management and Application Development Needs
If you have Imagers in different locations, you can remotely manage them all with our Scanner Management Service (SMS) application. Need a custom scanning application? Our Scanner Software Development Kits (SDKs) provides everything you need, including documentation, drivers, test utilities and sample source code for Windows, Android, iOS and Linux.
