Zebra DS8100 Series Cordless 1D/2D Handheld Scanner

Product Rating
Product Overview
The checkout stand is the last chance you have to leave shoppers with a good impression. The quality of the checkout experience is heavily dependent upon the performance of the scanner you choose. Now, you can leave every shopper with the ultimate last impression with the DS8100 Series handheld imager.

The DS8100 Series rises above conventional imagers to deliver unprecedented scanning performance on virtually every 1D and 2D barcode, keeping your checkout lines moving and your cashiers free to deliver a more personal checkout experience. The DS8100 Series - because when it comes to the checkout experience in your store, only the best will do.

Only the DS8100 Series combines the power of an 800 MHz microprocessor, a high-resolution megapixel sensor and Zebra's exclusive PRZM technology. With this unique combination of hardware and advanced algorithms, the DS8100 Series instantly captures the most problematic barcodes with lightning speed, including dense, poorly printed, crinkled, faded, distorted, dirty or damaged barcodes and electronic barcodes on smartphones - even when the screen is dimly lit.

A wide range of innovations allows workers to do much more than scan barcodes one at a time. Workers can simultaneously capture multiple barcodes and transmit only those required in the proper directly to your application. Only the DS8100 Series can capture the information on a full 8.5 x 11 or A4 page, process the desired information into the right format for electronic storage and transmit the data to your applications - all with one press of the trigger. And support for Digimarc barcodes provides future-proofing, ensuring that the DS8100 Series you deploy today can support the barcodes of tomorrow.

Zebra's complimentary tools deliver unrivalled manageability. With visionary visibility into scanning performance and battery metrics, you can spot and correct issues before they impact device uptime, worker productivity and the quality of your customer service. You can control many aspects of your scanners from any Android, iOS and Windows smartphone or tablet, as well as any iOS or Windows PC. You can create a single configuration barcode to customise settings. And you can stage, configure and update firmware on all your DS8100 devices in all of your locations - no user actions required.
