DS8100 SERIES HANDHELD IMAGERS SPEC SHEET
THE ULTIMATE IN PERFORMANCE, INNOVATION AND MANAGEABILITY
Checkout is the last chance to leave your shoppers with a good impression — and the quality of the checkout experience is heavily dependent upon the performance of the scanner you choose. If cashiers need to scan barcodes multiple times or enter unreadable barcodes manually, your checkout lanes can back up quickly, resulting in long lines, long wait times and cashiers that need to focus on ringing up merchandise as quickly as possible instead of focusing on shoppers to provide a better checkout experience. Now, you can give every shopper the ultimate last impression with the DS8100 Series handheld imager. The DS8100 Series rises above conventional imagers, delivering unprecedented scanning performance on 1D and 2D barcodes, innovative productivity enhancing tools, including swappable power sources — a PowerPrecision+ battery or PowerCapTM capacitor1 — plus unrivaled manageability tools to keep your scanners up, running and in the hands of your cashiers. Keep checkout lines moving and cashiers free to deliver a more personal checkout experience with the DS8100 Series — because when it comes to the checkout experience, only the best will do.
Unparalleled Performance on Virtually Every Barcode in Any Condition
Only the DS8100 Series combines the power of an 800 MHz microprocessor, a high-resolution megapixel sensor and Zebra’s exclusive PRZM Intelligent Imaging technology. With this unique combination of hardware and advanced algorithms, the DS8100 Series instantly captures the most problematic barcodes — including dense, poorly printed, crinkled, faded, distorted, dirty or damaged, as well as electronic barcodes on dimly lit displays.
A scanning range up to 24 in./61 cm, a high resolution imaging sensor and a bright “aiming spot” improve checkout speed. Now, cashiers in busy checkout environments can easily scan items in a customer’s shopping cart — without leaving the cash-wrap.
INNOVATION BEYOND THE BARCODE
Two interchangeable power options are available to power your devices: a PowerPrecision+ battery or a PowerCap capacitor. You can swap power options at any time on all models, right in your facility — no need to purchase separate battery-free and battery powered devices. And managing your power sources is easy. Since the PowerPrecision+ battery and PowerCap capacitor can report their model and serial numbers, you’ll always know which power source is in each scanner.
On a single charge, the advanced PowerPrecision+ battery provides over three around-the-clock days of continuous scanning, plus a wealth of metrics for better battery management.
The PowerCap capacitor is ideal when the scanner can always be inserted into a charging cradle when not in use. The largest capacitor in its category, the superior PowerCap offers 2,000 scans on a full charge and 100 scans after as little as 35 seconds in the cradle — both metrics are four times the competition.
See at-a-glance if the PowerPrecision+ battery or the PowerCap capacitor are sufficiently charged at the start of a shift.
The position of the charging contacts in the DS8100 Series charging cradles combined with Zebra’s exclusive Connect+ Contact Technology assures reliable, corrosion-free charging over the life of the scanner.
THE DS8100 SERIES — WHEN YOUR BUSINESS DEMANDS THE ULTIMATE IN PERFORMANCE, WORKFORCE PRODUCTIVITY AND CUSTOMER SERVICE.
Support for the Barcode of the Future — Digimarc®
The DS8100 Series supports Digimarc digital watermark technology, which enables a barcode to be printed repeatedly over all surfaces of a product like wallpaper — yet remain completely invisible to the naked eye. Cashiers no longer need to locate and position a barcode in the field of view of the imager, enabling faster checkout and easier self-checkout.
Only operate on channels that are not shared with your wireless LAN (WLAN), protecting service levels for workers and customers.
Multi-code Data Formatting (MDF) provides the ability to capture multiple barcodes and transmit only those required in the precise order the application requires.
With one press of the scan trigger, cashiers can capture and parse data on drivers licenses to automatically populate a loyalty or credit card application, verify age for age-restricted purchases and more.
Since the illumination on the barcode flashes to indicate a good decode, workers never need to pause to make sure a barcode was captured correctly.
Get the information you need to spot and correct barcode issues before they impact worker productivity and customer service quality. Only from Zebra, ScanSpeed Analytics captures barcode type, scan speed and more for every scanned barcode. And an image of the barcode with the slowest scan time helps you proactively identify and address issues to improve scan speed.
The PowerPrecision+ battery provides a wealth of health information, including charge cycles consumed, a State-of-Health meter and whether the battery can still hold a full charge. Now, you can easily spot, order and replace aging batteries before battery failures interrupt front end operations and cause checkout delays.
With this easy-to-use application, you can: control your imager’s beeper, vibration and LED to set user alerts; display scanned barcode data; access model and serial number; and access battery statistics and more from Android, iOS and Windows smartphones, tablets and PCs.
With 123Scan, you can easily create configuration barcodes to program scanners. If your imagers are in multiple locations across the country or around the world, with Scanner Management Service (SMS), you can configure and update the firmware for any DS8100 Series device that is plugged into the host — no depot staging or user action is required — such as the scanning of a configuration barcode.
Get everything you need to easily integrate scanning into your business applications with our Scanner Software Development Kits (SDKs) for Windows, Android, iOS and Linux. These SDKs provide documentation, drivers, test utilities and sample source code.
Hardware is just the start of what you need to maximize the value of your scanners. The DS8100 Series is powered by DataCapture DNA, a set of unique development, management, visibility and productivity tools. Leveraging Zebra’s 50 years of innovation, DataCapture DNA turns Zebra scanners into powerful tools that lower your TCO and help workers get more done each day. Decrease development cycles with development tools. Dramatically simplify scanner deployments of any size with management tools. Get the remote analytics you need to keep scanners up and running with visibility tools. And reach new levels of productivity with innovations that streamline tasks, allowing workers to capture the data the drives your business, faster and easier than ever.
