1D/2D barcode scanner

Designed for Mobile Data Collection

Designed to capture virtually any barcode from near contact to as far as 70ft./21.4m away, Zebra's DS3608-ER scanner is loaded with features that deliver truly unstoppable performance, redefining reliability and management simplicity. The advanced imager delivers lightning-fast capture of any 1D or 2D barcode printed on a label in virtually any condition to take the quality of your products and your customer service to the next level. Supports Digimarc® barcode technology.

Ready for the Toughest Warehouse and Manufacturing Floors

With the highest drop, tumble, and sealing specification in its class, the corded DS3608-ER is built to survive an 8 ft./2.4 m drop to concrete and also operates reliably after 5,000 tumbles to simulate the real-world tumbling that occurs with a drop. The DS3608-ER model is dust-tight, sprayproof and waterproofed to IP67. They are also designed to handle extreme temperatures (-22°F to 122°F/ -30°C to 50°C).

Industrial Ethernet Network Connection

Zebra's Network Connect for Automation delivers a seamless connection between the DS3608-ER scanner and a manufacturer's Industrial Ethernet network without the need for third party conversion equipment.

Superior Performance

You get the ultimate in scanning performance — period. Your workers can scan virtually any 1D or 2D electronic or printed barcode in any condition, as fast as they can pull the trigger. With an extraordinary working range, it’s easy to capture barcodes that are farther away. Even if barcodes are under shrinkwrap, damaged, dirty, or poorly printed — this intelligent scanner can handle it all.
