Barcode scanner

DS3508 Series   

DS3508 Series of Rugged 1-D/2-D Imager Scanners

The DS3508 Series of rugged, omni-directional digital scanners bring comprehensive, high-performance data capture to harsh industrial environments. Engineered with breakthrough digital imaging technology, this scanner family delivers extremely fast and accurate data capture of 1-D/2-D barcodes, images and direct part marks (DPM), and supports Item Unique Identification (IUID). The DS3508 Series is available in a various models to meet diverse needs:

DS3508-SR: 1-D/2-D barcodes; image capture/transfer

DS3508-HD: 1-D/2-D barcodes and optimized to capture very small, high density 2-D barcodes; image capture/transfer

DS3508-DP: 1-D/2-D barcodes; DPM marks; IUID support; image capture/transfer


Ability to read both 1-D and 2-D barcodes
Increases productivity by providing one device that can read all industry-standard barcodes

Powerful 624 MHz processor, fast sensor shutter speed and patent pending fast pulse illumination
Superior performance on 1-D and 2-D barcodes, improving productivity in a wide variety of applications

IUID-enabled (DS3508-DP only)
Ability to understand IUID constructs, and automatically separate and send the required information to your application

Ability to capture high density barcodes (DS3508-HD only)
Increases productivity by enabling users to read high-density 2-D barcodes in addition to all industry-standard barcodes

Ability to read a wide variety of DPM marks (DS3508-DP only)
Enhances quality processes and improves lifetime product traceability

Exceptional motion tolerance
Enables extraordinary scanning speed for all barcodes, increasing throughput and productivity – regardless of application

Unique aiming pattern
Bright central laser dot ensures quick, accurate scanning -- even in bright sunlight

Omni-directional scanning
Speeds reading time by eliminating the need to line up the barcode with the scan line

Rugged design withstands multiple 6.5 ft./2 m drops to concrete
Ensures maximum reliability with less downtime resulting from accidental drops

IP65-rated sealing
Protects against water and dust for reliable performance in harsh industrial conditions

Integrated image capture and transfer capabilities
Reduces the costs associated with operating and maintaining multiple devices by integrating the technology needed for image capture and transfer

Multiple on-board interfaces and universal cable set
Ensures flexible connectivity with different hosts; enables easy upgrading of hosts and cable replacement; provides investment protection

Bright LED, beeper with adjustable volume and vibrating pager motor
Multiple confirmation modes for positive user feedback in noisy environments

Advanced data formatting
Eliminates costly modifications to the host software

Supports 123Scan2 scanner configuration tool
Enables rapid and easy customised set-up through a free, wizard-based PC software tool

Supports RSM (Remote Scanner Management)
Lowers IT expenses and TCO by enabling remote management from a central location
