DS3608-ER Ultra-Rugged Scanner
UNSTOPPABLE PERFORMANCE FOR EXTENDED-RANGE 1D/2D BARCODE CAPTURE.
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.
Zebra’s DS3608-ER Ultra-Rugged Scanner is used in the following industries: Warehousing.
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 extrawide 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 specificatio 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.
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).
Multi-code captures and processe up to 20 barcodes simultaneously
Many labels have multiple barcodes your workers need to capture. Now, one press of the trigger captures the right barcodes and applies the unique data format required for each one for instant transmission to your backend systems — all with complete control over the order barcodes are processed.
Faster pick-list processing
Users can easily select and capture an individual barcode from any picklist.
Ready for the freezer
The DS3608-ER and DS3678-ER are built from the ground up to handle extreme cold. Their unique plastics, cables and components are designed to handle freezing temperatures without becoming brittle — making these scanners ideal for use in freezers and outdoor yards.*
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-ER 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 nine times the amount of scans per charge than with competitive models in this product class — more than 70,000 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.
Support for the Barcode of the Future — Digimarc®
DS3608-ER/DS3678-ER scanners support Digimarc digital watermark technology, where barcodes are printed repeatedly over all surfaces yet are invisible to workers and consumers. Digimarc saves time at checkout and also creates efficiencies throughout the supply chain since workers no longer need to locate and position a visible barcode in the field of view.
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.
Instantly connect to your Industrial Ethernet network
Zebra’s Network Connect for Automation delivers a seamless connection between DS3608-ER/DS3678-ER 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.
