DS3608-DP Ultra-Rugged Scanner
UNSTOPPABLE PERFORMANCE FOR 1D/2D DIRECT PART MARKS (DPM) AND BARCODES.
Every day, workers on the manufacturing plant floor scan thousands of direct part marks required to protect product quality and user safety — and meet end-to-end product traceability regulations. Their productivity depends on the quality of the scanner you put in their hands. With the corded DS3608-DP and cordless DS3678-DP imagers, you can give them the best — unmatched rugged design, unmatched scanning performance and unrivaled manageability. Advanced scanning delivers lightning-fast capture of direct part marks, plus any 1D or 2D barcode printed on a label in virtually any condition. The ultra-rugged design is practically indestructible — ideal for punishing environments. The scanners couldn’t be easier and less time-consuming to deploy and manage. And when it comes to cordless technology, the DS3678-DP is loaded with Zebra-only features that put it in a class of its own. The DS3608-DP/ DS3678-DP — the unstoppable performance you need to maximize workforce productivity and throughput, ensure traceability, reduce production cycle times and prevent unplanned production line downtime.
Zebra’s DS3608-DP Ultra-Rugged Scanner is used in the following industries: Manufacturing and Warehousing.
Superior scanning performance on DPM and standard 1D/2D barcodes
Comprehensive patented features enable the capture of literally every type of direct part mark (DPM) and printed 1D/2D barcode. DPM codes can be captured, regardless of size, surface, contrast or density — including the most challenging mark, dot peen, as well as laser etch, ink mark, chemical etch, inkjet mold, cast and thermal spray. The same scanner can capture barcodes printed on labels in virtually any condition — including damaged, dirty, poorly printed or under shrinkwrap. This dual functionality provides excellent value: you get one scanner you can use on the production line for end-to-end track and trace of materials — and in the warehouse from receiving to shipping.
Ultra-rugged — the most indestructible design in its class
The DS3608-DP/DS3678-DP is our most rugged scanner yet, with the highest drop, tumble and sealing specification in its class. The DS3608-DP/ DS3678-DP 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 scanners operate 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.
Advanced illumination system
Advanced illumination provides the multiple lighting effects required to capture marks on any type of surface — including reflective, irregular and curves as well as low and high contrast marks. The built-in diffuser provides the indirect light required to capture marks printed on very shiny and reflective surfaces. The proprietary design of the diffuser also directs additional lighting to the edges of barcodes marked on a curved surface, enhancing the image for easier decoding. Finally, a glancing direct light mode provides the bright light required to successfully read low contrast barcodes marked on any type of surface, including challenging polished materials.
Easy management with our complimentary industry-best tools
Remotely configure scanners, upgrade firmware, format data properly for your back end and monitor PowerPrecision+ battery statistics and more with 123Scan and Scanner Management Service (SMS).
Extreme temperature rating
Built to handle extreme cold, heat and humidity, you can use the DS3608-DP and DS3678-DP anywhere — even in the freezer*.
A Bluetooth model in a class of its own for superior cordless freedom
Bluetooth 4.0 (Low Energy) provides lightning fast wireless communication and maximum energy efficiency.
Our Zebra Wi-Fi Friendly Mode eliminates the wireless interference that Bluetooth devices can create in your Wi-Fi environment.
The ‘go anywhere’ rugged cradle offers superior versatility and durability. The DS3678-DP is the only scanner in its family to offer a cradle with IP65 sealing. And its industrial charging contacts withstand 250,000 insertions.
The first-in-its-class battery ‘charge gauge’ and Bluetooth status LED make it easy to monitor battery power as well as Bluetooth connectivity.
The PowerPrecision+ battery delivers the ultimate in battery power and management. You get more than three times the amount of scans per charge than with competitive models in this product class — more than 100,000 scans per charge, so workers can scan more items over a longer period of time. You also get visibility into a wealth of battery health-related data, including charge cycles consumed, current battery status and a State of Health meter, which identifies if batteries are healthy and holding a full charge or ready for retirement.
Faster pick-list processing
Users can easily select and capture an individual barcode from any pick list.
Instantly connect to your Industrial Ethernet network
Zebra’s Network Connect for Automation delivers a seamless connection between DS3608-DP/DS3678-DP scanners and a manufacturer’s Industrial Ethernet network without the need for third party conversion equipment. The solution eliminates vulnerability points, improves security, reduces complexity and is compatible with every Zebra 3600 Series scanner.
Three flexible feedback modes
Mix and match the feedback modes that are ideal in your environment — vibration, red and green LEDs located in an area where they are always easy to see, plus the traditional loud beep tone.
