Zebra DS3578 Series

The DS3578 Series of rugged, cordless, omni-directional 1D/2D imager 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 1D/2D bar codes, direct part marks (DPM) and images, and supports Item Unique Identification (IUID). Integrated Bluetooth provides cordless freedom, improving productivity. Three models are available: DS3578-SR: 1D/2D bar codes DS3578-HD: 1D/2D bar codes; optimized to capture very small, high-density 2D bar codes DS3578-DP: 1D/2D bar codes; DPM marks; IUID support.
