Zebra RS5100 Bluetooth Ring Scanner

Maximize the efficiency of your zebra mobile devices

Improve patient safety, patient experience and healthcare staff productivity

The RS5100 sets a new standard for single-finger rugged ring scanners. When it comes to wearable devices, today’s workers
have high expectations for comfort and ease of use, while your customers require enterprise-class flexibility, ruggedness and
manageability. The RS5100 delivers both.

Workers get featherweight comfort in a modern design with a minimum footprint, maximum
comfort and ease-of-use, plus reliable point-and-shoot scanning on every barcode.

Your customers get a ring scanner that is at home
in industrial environments like the warehouse and manufacturing floor, as well as customer-facing areas, with a rugged design that
ensures a long lifecycle, scanning options to meet different needs and backroom accessories that reduce management time and cost.
